Most of us are familiar with our sun sign, or what is more commonly known as “star sign”. This is the one that you frantically searched for (okay that was me) in the Sunday morning paper, and read over and over until you could attach some sort of meaning to it no matter how vague the message relayed was.

What is retrograde?

There are certain periods throughout every year when the planets move in the opposite direction than they normally do. This is when the planets move in retrograde.

How long are planets in retrograde?

The time period each planet is in retrograde varies. The outer planets of the solar system move slower which causes them to stay in retrograde longer. Their time frame varies between 4 to 5 months within a year. The inner planets of the solar system move faster than the outer planets, which allows retrograde for shorter periods of time.   Their time frame varies between 3 weeks to 3 months.
