Welcome back to Lavendaire, I'm continuing this series of fun self-discovery tools on my channel, so if you missed the first article I was talking about tarot cards and how to use them as a beginner because I'm a beginner, today I am super excited to be talking about astrology. astrology is something I've been dealing with for most of my life, literally since I was a kid, and it's not that I'm an expert on it or anything. But I was more into astrology and natal chart reading last year than I read Steven Forrest's book The Inner Sky.
I've learned a lot about reading the natal chart, a lot about astrology and the meaning of I know I know more about astrology than the average person. So this article is for the average person. If you are an expert there is no need to look at this.
But I just want to explain astrology more deeply than just your sun signs. So get ready for a fun article! First things first, let's clarify: astronomy is the scientific exploration of celestial bodies, so it is based on cts and research, and astrology is the interpretation of celestial bodies, that is, this is how we interpret what is on Heaven is. It's the poetry, it's the art.
But it's really cool that everything has a meaning and it's not exactly scientific, but it's more of an art. So what is a natal chart? Your astrological natal chart is basically a snapshot of the sky at the time and place where you were born, where in the world you were born and the exact time, it is the picture of what is in heaven. It is a kind of map of all the planets, the sun and the moon.
So it is very important to be precise about the exact time that you were born because every hour or two your natal chart changes because the sky moves - no, the earth moves - and so moves the snapshot of the sky were born If you can get your exact natal chart r side note: if you are Chinese I know that there is a superstition in Chinese culture, because of feng shui and all that stuff, never to give your date / time of birth to anyone out there. So I don't want to post my exact natal chart or anything. But it's because we believe that once someone knows your exact date and time of birth, they'll know a lot about your destiny and people can use it against you.
So this is something that I personally - because my mom influenced me - personally I would like to keep it a little bit more secret, so just let you guys know. So how do you get your natal chart read? There are many websites where you can enter this information. Café Astrology is one, Astro.com is another.
And there are also plenty of mobile apps that you can use to check your natal chart. My favorite astrology app is co-star. This one is very modern and chic and outlines your natal chart and all of the details in a very neat way.
So check out these - I'll link them below. Now let's talk about the original triad which is your sun, moon, and ascendant. Sometimes people also refer to the ascendant as their 'ascending' sign.
In general, these are the three most important signs on your natal chart. So you might see other people who are really interested in astrology, they will list all three signs because all three are important in listing more than just your sun sign. Your sun sign only depends on the day you were born what time of year you were.
I was born in October so I'm a Libra. BTW, I have this diary where I made a lot of notes from the astrology book I read so I can refer to it now and then. In general, your sun sign represents your ego, your personality, your self-image.
It's the core of who you are. Your moon sign represents your emotional self. Your moon is your sensitivity, your emotions, your feelings, your mood, your heart.
Sometimes people refer to their moon sign more than their sun sign because your moon is your emotional self and you feel more with that sign. And whatever sign you are in your moon, that is an indication of what makes you happy and what makes you feel fulfilled. Well, I'm a Sagittarius moon and Sagittarius is adventure and exploration, trying new things, and I can often really relate to that too.
Your ascending or 'ascending' sign is essentially your mask for the world. It's how other people perceive you. Think of it as a first impression.
Other people may see you in a certain way when they first meet you, and then when they get to know you they realize, 'Oh, you really are like a different kind of person.' So your ascendant is how you appear to be Other, and just so you know, my rising sign is Gemini. By the way, in order not to make this article too long, I am not going to go into the details of the meaning of each sign, planet, and all because there are tons of resources online about that.
I'm actually going to make simple notes for you to read on my blog post, just quick keywords and notes on each character, planet, or house. After receiving your natal chart, you can write down your sign, moon, and rising sign. And then you can take a look at the notes I made on my blog post and see what corresponds to each character.
One way to understand your original triad sign is to summarize it in a sentence like this: 'I am a __, with the soul of a __, wear the mask of a __' Depending on your sign, you will find the meaning and the archetype of your sign and just pocket the words. For example for me: I'm an artist with the soul of a philosopher who wears the mask of a teacher, that's because an artist is what a Libra is, the philosopher is an archetype of the Sagittarius moon and the teacher is one of the archetypes for a twin. I hope this made sense and I hope it helped.
So that was the basics. Ready to dive deeper? Let's go! Let's talk about the constituent parts of the natal chart. As I mentioned earlier, there are 12 signs, you've heard these before - Aries, Scorpio, Libra, Leo - all of these I know do not take them one after the other.
And then there are ten planets, and after 'planets'
If five of those planets in retrograde are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, but only one of the three outermost planets, then you have an individual who could be best described as 'eccentric'.
In this article you can relate the retrograde planets step by step to your natal chart. In the last article we discussed about Saturn in the fifth hour of the horoscope, in this article we will talk about how we can relate our natal chart to the retrograde planet knowing that this article is not about the effects of retrograde Planets in your natal chart, we have a separate playlist for this. This article is solely about how we can relate retrograde planets in our natal chart, so keep watching namaste and welcome to the Pramanik Astrology Channel I am your host Prasad Mahajani I will help you Raise your vibrations and become your real self if you have any questions ask me on Instagram Add me to primary astrology DM me I read all the DMS and try to answer almost all the ladies if you have any questions you like can also comment on the youtube articles in a comment area I read all the comments and try hey to reply to any comments.
Before we start our articles, let yourself know if you are looking for the Effects of Retrograde Planets This article is not for you You are not going to talk about the effects of Mercury retrograde on your natal chart and can look out for the possibilities in your own natal chart before we start our article. Let me tell you that there are two types of regression What Prasad you never told me that there are two types of regression Yes there are two types of regression and the first is the retrograde planets in transit what I mean by that the planets are in transit all the time and at some point they will go retrograde, just like now a few days ago we mercury went back Okay this is a retrograde Mercury in transit, but if someone is born during that time? For three days or maybe those two months that Mercury is declining, he will have a retaliation of the planet in his natal chart on his d1 chart and that is a second kind of regression. The first is the transit and the second is the planet itself retrograde on your 1 diagram.
So if you are clear in this article we are going to talk about the planets in transit and how we can relate these to retrograde planets in our natal chart so let's start with this in this article you will be able to compare the retrograde planets with yours Relating Birth Horoscope Step By Step The first step in understanding how the retrogression of the planet relates to your natal chart is to go to any software or if you have software on your computer let's just go to that software or Go to any website wherever you can get your natal chart, go to that website and take a look at the chart for now, you are going to get a chart right. This is the first step you need to go to get the chart for now if you are watch this article, just go and enter the date and location wherever you are and just throw the chart for this time for the ascendant you have to go to your d1-diagram and then look for what your ascendant is ascendant is your first house ascendant is the anchor point around which all houses are anchored first house or ascendant is the Rashi on the eastern horizon at the time of your Birth so go to your horoscope check what the number in the first block is okay it has to be from one to twelve the number represents Russia and that will be your Lagna Russia or that will be your rising sun what is the meaning of it when you do the first House know it goes under the foundation for the rest of the houses, the rest of Russia and also for the Lordships, so go to your d1 right now in the second step, we just cast the diagram for the timing of now then go to Your horoscope you may be behaving on your mobile pc laptop or hard hard hard print wherever it's easy to go to the d1 ascendant check okay the ascendant Now you come to your online chart that you have now drawn for the right time. Go to your ascendant like you did for your d1 and make Rashi ok as your ascendant, now the foundation is laid too which is also present in d1.
What do I mean by that, now suppose that when you throw up the horoscope it comes as Gemini. Now Go to Your Horoscope Assuming you have a Scorpio ascendant then you need to come to this chart and make Scorpio your ascendant. Yes this is step number two when number three is to see exactly where the planets are okay in our example that we took Gemini ascendant and we have Scorpius energy ind1 so we will do this when Scorpius ended and now look at the planets now you have Jupiter in the first house, now you have Rahu in the eighth house now you will have the mercury end of the ninth house okay now you will understand what exactly these transit planets are going through in your horoscope okay that is step number three what is step number four step number over four is in search of the lord now we have almost three planets retrograde right now jupiter is retrograde saturn is retrograde mercury has also been going back a few days okay now you have to look for the lordships of the planet now we have three planets every planet ruled by russia so there are six houses that could be affected by this transit of retrograde planets might be affected Ok now we need to write down the different signs that might be affected Okay so we have two Mercury bursts - Jupiter bursts - Saturn bursts we're going to write them down Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces and Capricorn and Aquarius you have an idea about it What Exactly Are The Areas That Might Be Affected? Mercury Decrease Mercury Decrease Isn't Always Bad We hear that the mercury decrease is bad, that it will cause something problem with your laptops, cell phones yes it does but at the same time it gives you the option to think about it, meditate and solve the unsolved problems and what would these problems be related to the houses ruled by this planet so that Mercury is not retrograde? all bad, you don't have to be afraid of retrograde mercury you don't have to be afraid of mercury, actually this is the best place, now your mind is getting sharp and you think and meditate on the things you need and you are i will them during sort out this time so I love to talk about Mercury retrograde, when there is Mercury retrograde it always happens in the same element, if you look at the last Mercury retrograde, it was around me, sorry, it was around on March 10th Marchor March 7th something it was in the sign of the Pisces the water elements Inow it happens in the sign of the cancer again another side of the water element December or November it is declining in the sign of the scorpion, so that the regression of the mercury always in the element takes place, so at the beginning of the year only sets the tone for the element, this year happens in the element water, so during the whole Year it will go back to the element of twelve, four and eight.
So you need to go back to that date when Mercury is retrograde in March. You have to toss the card for that day and see what happens to your ascendant is an idea and each regression will be special and different why, because things will change, there can be a conjunction of the moon when the mercury retaliation happened during the first few days there can be the conjunction of Mars, just like that one is a weakened Martian conjunction with Mercury that will be different from the Mercury retrogression we had on Mars in March, not on Mars in March, okay, but This time around the Mercury retrogression, Mars is conjunct it has weakened Mars, but guess which is the most beneficial Jupiter okay but the thing is Jupiter is retrogression too so you can go ahead and the elements and you can draw the conclusions that you can draw for yourself, not for others, i am i won't predict anything i just give you the perspective to look at it those who are intermediate or advanced can go in either case and they may have a different approach than what I am sharing here. It's perfectly fine because I'm just starting out with astrology, but this will definitely help you understand what's happening in your life.
What's the next step? The next step is to check out all of these planets from your moon. Yes this is important because transits are not just important over the moon and laguna, there are quite a few but there are not in the context of this article so you can check out the transits from lagna and all of the t these steps on the transits from the moon Now you have to deduce how you would infer that there might be some transits that are good for Laguna, bad for the moon, bad for Laguna, good for the moon One is going to hit you and the regression that is straight from Happened to the three planets, happens mainly in the water element sign Jupiter is in the water element and mercury is retrograde also in the water element, so two planets become retrograde in the water element ement and one goes back into the fire elements, so there is no air element, there is no earth element, so these energies will have more influence on your emotional quotient. It means that they will affect you emotionally more than anything, okay so yeah that was so yeah that was my analysis of planet regression and how to relate planet retrogression to your natal chart if you want to learn more about the effects of retrograde plan ets in your natal chart i have a full list of regression effects the planets.
You can check that at any time or if you start with Vedic astrology it will help you to get into Vedic astrology faster yes it sends you tons of positive energies and sends you high vibrations until you find love and peace in the next articles
As the name suggests, retrograde is when a planet appears to go backward in its orbit, as viewed from Earth. The opposite of retrograde is direct or prograde motion. Prograde motion is the term astronomers prefer, while astrologers are more prone to use the term direct motion.
Okay so yeah let's talk about the regression of the planet, what is the regression of the planet? Understand the regression of the planet with this example with this figure let's start so this is our sun this is the orbit of mercury this is the orbit of Venus and this is the orbit of earth okay so here earth is okay and here are the fixed star constellation in skyokay this is not orbit this is the fixed star constellation why they are called fixed star because they don't move planets moving this fixed star constellation doesn't mean these are the nakshatras, okay, so there are constellations, we will call them fixed constellations so we call them FS 1 FS 2 3 4 5 6 7 and it will go on to 27okay so this is nakshatra is another part let's not get into the fact that it is about understanding the regression of the planet regression of the Planet is because of the movement between two planets, we talk about mercury, so mercury also rotates around the sun It takes 87 days 87 points some days to complete an orbit around itself. When the earth completes 365 days, Mercury has made more than three laps more than three orbits around the sun in 365 days.
Why, since it takes 87 days to complete an orbit, let's understand what is regression in this figure in this diagram, okay so this is Earth this is Venus when we see Venus from Earth we see the Venus in context with a fixed star here this is the earth this is the Venus and if we look at Venus from the earth we are looking at the Venus against the background of this fixed star, it can be anything that is okay, so we observe the Venus from the Earth out against the background of this fixed time okay Point number one now this Venus is moving okay, so we will see that Venus against the background of this fixed star okay this will continue to change a fixed star is fixed they will not change ok now has the Venus reward and has come closer to earth now she will see Venus in the background of this fixed star arm okay and nowweenus comes very close to earth again and now you can see that s Venus should ideally start in the background of the fuck, however if she is moving forward she should be seen in the background of four, but due to her proximity to Earth and the difference in movement, it seems at this point that we are in the background of Point number two have fixed our number two and this is regression that happens in the sky and regression is okay and this can apply to all planets Mercury will go retrograde Venus go retrograde Jupiter Saturn and Earth all five planets will go retrograde in the same way that we are over have spoken to Venus similarly you can draw for mercury the same way you can draw for mass Okay in this diagram we discussed how exactly? the planet's regression happens okay in the sky, when the planet is near earth, it seems to be in the background of a fixed star that is in front of the one, okay, it seems to be in the background of the fixed star in front of the one in front of that that is it was traveling so let's say it works we say it moves backwards we say it's backwards okay but in reality the planet is not moving back physically please understand that okay now let's discuss the effects of the mercury planets what the Effect of the mercury planets there are is an idea about the retrograde planets that they give the result of the house before the one they put in order, which I have not observed in my studies, because if you are observing Saturn, Jupiter or Mars, those who have the particular aspects like Jupiter have five seven nine aspects, Marshave four seventh and eight aspects when they begin to result If the house is to be given before the one you are sitting in, it will occupy and affect more than seven to eight houses in the chart of twelve Okay, so I don't believe in that theory, there are or are some scholars who have produced results with it achieve, so it's all about the experience and application and what results you get. Very little is known about retrograde planets in the classical texts, so it's all about the experience, okay if you have the experience that it works you can go on with it, but I haven't observed what exactly happens in my studies and what? the effects of retrograde planets are one thing is sure retrograde planets are very karmic why because they increase the size of the planet something specific all happens at this point that makes it the high karmic okay and when i say karmic the range of karma depends on the rule and placement of the bucket planet in your chart, what do I mean by that, suppose you have a planet in the ninth house? or a tenth house in your horoscope, which fortunately is, let's say you have Saturn which is variable in your horoscope, and in the tenth house the penthouse penthouse will have the maximum feedback effect wherever the Berkeley planet is placed is placed is mainly influenced by the retrograde planets and affects the house in which the Mercury planet is placed is most influenced. In this example we have a retrograde planet in the 10th house, so the 10th house is the most heavily influenced house from the retrograde Saturn, but the house being ruled by Saturn will have great effects.
Let's take this as Saturn in Libra in the 10th house so the Ascendant and Tana house will 10 and 11 I'm getting great results with Saturn in Libra in the 10th house. Another thing is if the planet is involved in yoga, if the planet is involved in yoga, the yoga will intensify, if one planet is in communication with the other planet, you need to look for the degrees of the planetary degrees critical and the lord of Bhakra planets in our case we took the 10th house Saturn in Libra so that Venus the placement of Venus will be crucial, if Venus is concerned, this person's career could be affected, why because we have a Bakri planet in the 10th House we have? the retrogression of the 10th year this was my analysis of the retrogression, what is retrogression and the retrograde planets in your horoscope let's sum up the retrogression, what is retrogression planet not physically moving backwards they are moving in the same direction as the ecliptic path while moving they are not moving physically backwards was what number what is the next point, which is very important we always see the planet in the background of the fixed stars we have an example the Venus taken the inner planet what is the inner planet the planet lies between sun and earth that is Venus and Mercury ok are the inner planets ok so we always see the planets in the background of the fixed stars now Venus rotates around the sun ok now it comes here and now we see Venus in the background of fixed star number 3 ok now Venus is getting very close to earth and now ours is happening now when we look at Venus and it seems to be in front of the backdrop that it appears to be and it seems that the backdrop is not the fourth star that the one in front is that is from the next star after the third, but shows us the fixed star 3 a fixed star to the fixed star in front of the 3 ok that's why we call it retrograde or mercury one thing here is for sure that retrograde planets are very karmic they increase the intensity the planet for better or for worse the placeme nt of the vigrahain your horoscope the house that carries it is the most heavily influenced house the house that is ruled by the bhakra planet gets the best result of the valley of moreh ok so do not worry, if you have an over-triggered trigger, if you have the mercury graha in any house the house is ruled by the Buckley planets in your horoscope will be bright enough and get the power alright, w Because this is something special, all right, this is not the usual way, one thing is certain, this is something unusual and very intense because it is very close to hurting it happens very close to the earth that was my analysis about that retrograde planets as far as I could grasp and share with you if you are new to my channel please consider subscribing to this article with your family and friends if you are not already and and and send to see your high vibrations in the next VideosLove and Peace I move backwards peace
Retrograde motion is an APPARENT change in the movement of the planet through the sky. It is not REAL in that the planet does not physically start moving backwards in its orbit. It just appears to do so because of the relative positions of the planet and Earth and how they are moving around the Sun.
Stars rise and set in the night sky due to the rotation of the earth. However, the pattern of stars seen in the sky, how far apart a pair of stars is, remains the same over time scales of thousands of years. However, planets move in the sky relative to the pattern of the background stars.
They change their position in the sky from night to night. The term planet is derived from the Greek word for 'wanderer'. This phenomenon cannot actually be observed on any particular night, but if you note the position of a planet relative to the background stars and note its position again a few nights later, you will find that it has moved.
This could be seen by taking a series of photos each night for a month with a selected star highest in the sky and superimposing them. Planets usually move east, the direction of increasing right-wing ascension that we now know revolves around the sun. Note that due to the rotation of the earth, a planet rises in the east and sets in the west every night.
This article focuses on a variation of this movement known as the retrograde movement. This apparent movement affects the planet, which slows down, stops moving east, moves west for a while, and then stops again before continuing east. For superior planets orbiting the sun further outside the earth and the only planets discussed in this article, this effectively creates a loop in the sky. 2,000 years ago, the Greek astronomer Ptolemy explained retrograde motion with a geocentric system of wheels within wheels. a bit like the children's drawing game Spirograph.
It was believed that the earth is at the center of everything and that a planet moves in a circular orbit called an epicyclic, the center of which moves in a larger circle called a deferent. This could explain the existence of retrograde loops, albeit in a complicated way. We know today that this explanation was completely wrong.
In the 1500s, Copernicus explained retrograde motion using a much simpler heliocentric theory that was largely correct. The retrograde motion was simply a perspective effect caused when the earth passed a slower moving outer planet that caused the planet to move backwards relative to the background stars. Thus, a retrograde motion occurs over time when the sun, earth, and planet are aligned and the planet is described as being opposed to the sun in the sky.
For this reason, retrograde motion is referred to by many as apparent retrograde motion. Nothing changes in the movement of the planet, and the retrograde movement occurs as a natural perspective effect. Let's look at a demonstration that teaches retrograde motion.
It consists of the sun in the center in red, the earth and a parent planet in a circular orbit around them. Here a white rod connects the earth to a higher planet similar to Mars and represents the perspective that points to the place where Mars would be seen in the sky. From Earth, this circle runs counterclockwise to the east.
A system of circular gears controls the positions of Earth and Mars and their speeds of movement, a hand crank enables the demonstrator to advance Earth and Mars while the gears ensure the appropriate relative speeds. Notice that an arrow represents the direction of apparent movement in the sky and we have placed background stars around the edge where we will see the apparent position of Mars. We begin our demonstrations a few months before Mars reaches the opposition.
Remember that Earth is moving faster than Mars and will soon overtake it. The rod that connects the earth to Mars points to the apparent position of Mars in the sky. As we slowly turn the crank to advance time, Mars initially moves eastward.
We have now reached the point where the eastward movement of Mars appears to stop, the beginning of the retrograde movement. Notice that Mars is now moving west. Mars reaches opposition in the midst of the retrograde movement.
We have now reached the point where the westward movement of Mars appears to have stopped, the end of its retrograde movement. As time progresses, Mars resumes normal eastward motion relative to the stars. Note that this effect is solely due to perspective, nothing has changed in the movements of Mars or Earth.
This diagram illustrates the perspective effect underlying retrograde motion. At which letter position in the sky does a superordinate planet appear to be for the specified planetary and earth locations. Please write down your vote on a piece of paper and explain your method of determining your answer.
To determine the planet's apparent position in the sky, one would simulate a line of sight by drawing a line from the earth through the planet to the surrounding sky. To conclude, let's discuss the general properties of retrograde motion. The following table shows several values that describe the retrograde motion of the higher planets.
The table shows the synodic period, this is how often the earth passes a superior planet, the time from one opposition to the other, thus also the time interval between the retrograde movements. Note that the synodic period is getting closer and closer to a year when looking at planets in larger orbits. In fact, for the planet 'Farout', which is in a very large orbit, the synodic period would be exactly one year because it would orbit so slowly that it would effectively not move.
Correspondingly, the retrograde interval is the smallest for Marsand and increases to half a year for our 'distant' planet. Note that the size of the retrograde loop, the angular extent of the backward moving tract in the sky, is largest for Mars and decreases to zero for the 'distant' planet. This is to be understood in terms of our change of perspective.
Mars is closest to Earth and therefore moves the most during the time it takes Earth to pass through it. So it can appear in the largest positions, the perspective effect is the greatest. Further teaching materials can be found on the Internet at http://astro.unl.edu
If you see an 'R' next to a planet in your birth chart that means it was in retrograde when you were born. Someone with Mercury retrograde in the birth chart may have a reflective or introverted mind. .
Retrogrades in astrology are generally associated with mishaps and slowdownsso you might find yourself a little put off if you notice, as I just did, a little R next to certain planets on your birth chart. Yup, that means those celestial bodies were retrograde on the day you were born.25 2020 .
Are retrograde planets powerful? Yes, indeed, retrograde planets are extremely powerful because of being closest to Earth during the retrograde period. Hence, the celestial body influences us the most during that time period. Planets, as massive heavenly bodies, influence us physically and metaphysically. .
'Often are in their own mental worlds and have difficulty communicating clearly with others. According to astrologer Nic Gaudette on The Dark Pixie Astrology, people with Mercury retrograde in their natal charts can be insecure about how they're perceived by others. .
Saturn is also the planet that rules karma. So this retrograde is a good time to take stock of your past behavior; you might wind up paying for any negative actions or unresolved issues that have been festering. This isn't a bad thing.10 2020 .
Mercury retrograde is an optical illusion which means it looks as if the planet is moving backwards from our view here on earth. Astrologers believe that during this perceived backwards motion, technology and communication could get disrupted, putting a damper on anyone's summer mood.27 2021 .
