Current & Upcoming Retrogrades and Stations – Dates & Graphs
2019, 2020, & 2021
A station is defined from the point of view of the Earth; it is the point when a planet appears to stop moving in the sky. The planet then appears to move slowly in the opposite direction; at this point the planet is considered to be Stationary Retrograde. Similarly, once the planet makes a Station (stops) and begins to go forward again, this is called Stationary Direct.
The following shows current and upcoming Retrograde cycles of the planets. Note that the Sun and the Moon never retrograde. Dates given show the Retrograde periods as well as the Retrograde zones. This report gives you dates and times for when a planet enters the retrograde zone, are stationary retrograde, are stationary direct, and leave the retrograde zone. Retrograde zones are longer periods of time and encompass the entire period of the zodiac degrees affected by the retrograde.
