WHAT EVEN IS RETROGRADE?
Most of the time, planets move in forward motion on, or relatively parallel to, the ecliptic, which we can think of as the main highway.
Simply by being contrary to the normal flow, retrograde motion represents an exception - it means that they’re taking a mini hiatus, slowing down, and not working to their fullest potential.
WHAT CAN THEY TEACH US?
Here’s a list to all the planets that are currently retrograde and the wisdom they bring us:

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
The planets aren’t behaving in a way we’d like them to – but that’s okay. None of the alignments are that bad, in all honesty. We’ve all been through way worse.
Sure, our relationships may be a little wonky, or we might feel more confused than usual. But there are a few gems hidden in and amongst the rough – we just need to know to look out for them.
These planets are allowing us to examine our lives, relationships, and situations in order to make improvements that can make matters better. It's time to reflect on the past and reassess plans for the future. Introspection is key, as well as rest.
