- Should retrograde planets be cause for
- In a Natal Chart there is nothing to worry about with respect to whether a planet is in Direct or Retrograde Motion; there is no difference in analysis. Retrograde planets neither lose strength, nor are they harmful.
- In a Prasna/Horary Chart, if a retrograde planet is posited in the Star of a planet which is in direct motion, it indicates that after an obstacle and/or a delay, the matter will materialize when the planet goes direct, and passes beyond the point from where the retrograde motion initially began.
- However, planets in retrograde motion, if posited in the Star of another retrograde planet or in its own Star when retrograde, can promise only failure. And planets in direct motion, if posited in the Star of a retrograde planet, will not see success.
