Planets in Retrograde
« on: August 05, 2018, 04:45:41 AM »
I wasn’t sure what section to put this topic up, but just wanted to let everyone be aware of the multiple planets that are on retrograde.  These retrogrades causes confusion, imbalances, miscommunication, etc.  I have to admit that I don’t know too much about the planets and how they affect us, but was told this by a psychic.  The planets are Mercury retrograde in Leo; Mars retrograde in Aquarius; Saturn retrograde in Capricorn; Neptune retrograde in Pisces; Pluto retrograde in Capricorn; Chiron retrograde in Aries.  Not to mention we just went through a lunar eclipse and Blood Moon.  This seems to be a challenging time.  Peace.

I've been told this by a few psychics. And I am definitely feeling it...lots of confusion, fears being stirred up. This weekend was the worst.

Every time planets are in retrograde, it causes confusion, imbalances, miscommunication. If no one ever mentioned some planet retrograde, wouldn't we just attribute the confusion, imbalances, miscommunication to something else? Does retrograde ever produce any good stuff? Retrograde is more along the lines of twinflames and soulmates. It's ridiculous to believe in a period of say three to six months where things don't align. If confusion, imbalances, miscommunication happen outside of the retrograde period, what is it then: post-retrograde until the next official retro happens?

I agree..and it's often an excuse psychics use when things don't happen.  You can dictate your life by these retrogrades.  I don't even pay attention to them anymore.

Totally agree. I always thought it was another stock line by a reader since many readers have jumped on its bandwagon.

exactly.  When I was reading on Keen a lot about past POI, I had one reader CONSTANTLY use this as an excuse as to why things were not moving along, it was so annoying after a while to hear this over and over again.  And in the long run, it had nothing to do with retrograde and all to do with him acting like a jerk.

Astrology is real, but not this form of it guys. You cant just make general statements about the whole world based on retrograde planets. They only matter in your chart guys.

This is how astrology gets fluffy and useless..service providers or content channels using this as a talking point when it is loosely based on astrological concepts.

Agreed. Not everyone feels it because it might not touch personal planets. When it touches a number of planets or important points, shifts always occur. If you look back on major events in your life, it is guaranteed that the planets were hitting those planets/points nearly exact. Whether one chooses to believe it or not, it's real and the majority of the things we do are dictated by the stars in the sky.

theres alot of planet in retro right now. only mercury is coming out of retro today. see if you feel a difference by mid sept. thatd be enough time for some of them to come out and start going forward at normal speed. it also depends which planets rule which houses in your chart and if they are going over important angles/planets.

A perfect excuse to buffer missed predictions, insights. I really wish the readers would cool the retrograde line---it's making everybody cynical, I think it's over-used excuse.

Exactly. If someone wants to talk to you/be with you, retrograde isn’t going to stop it from happening.
