Retrograde planets in 2018
For astrology, retrograde planets in 2018 are very important, because these periods are marked by the slow motion of the celestial bodies of the solar system in relation to the Earth, which has a special imprint on various spheres of human life.
The concept of "retrograde" carries the meaning of "backward movement". But since the planets do not have the properties to move in the opposite direction, it is worth explaining why each planet has a retrograde period. All celestial bodies, moving in their orbit, periodically slow down around the sun. It seems to the observer from the Earth that the planet is moving forward and now backwards, but in fact, it first overtakes the globe and then lags behind. This feature of the celestial bodies "move" back and got the name - retrograde.
Due to the different speeds of planets, they affect human behavior and life in different ways. Astrologers advise to be attentive to what the slowing of every celestial body brings to our lives. Most often, the retrograde influence of any planet determines the movement back and in everything on earth.This is a return to unfinished business, the resumption of long-standing problems, rollback to obsolete relations. Planets inhibit the affairs of those spheres of life in which they dominate.
In 2018, all the planets in the solar system will have a retrograde period. And Mercury can be noted in this state even 3 times. The closest and largest planets affect man most of all. How their behavior will affect our lives, consider next.
