From our perspective here on Earth planets appear to move backwards in the sky during certain parts of their orbits. This retrograde motion is considered to be meaningful by most astrologers. Retrograde planets are interpreted as “turned inward” or inhibited. Some astrologers think this diminishes the power of the planet, while others believe it simply means that inner reflection is often necessary before outwardly expressing the planet’s energy.
