Now, read here about the astrological importance of Planetary Retrograde motion and their influence:
According to Vedic Astrology, planetary movement have significant impact on human life. This impact could be either benefic or malefic, depending on the position of the planet in a person’s birth chart. Sun, Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are considered malefic planets, whereas Jupiter and Venus are believed to be benefic by nature. Mercury as per its association and Moon according to a Paksha, are considered as auspicious or inauspicious planet.
Retrograde means to move backwards. Generally, it is considered that the retrograde motion of planets means their movement in backwards direction, but this is not what it means as the planets never move back. Let’s understand it this way, - Suppose you are travelling in a fast moving train towards North. At the same time another train travels in the same direction, your train is moving, but at a slower speed. When your train passes the second train, it will appear to you as if it is moving backwards; this is what retrograde actually means.
As per Vedic Astrology, a planet gains directional strength during its retrograde motion, and becomes more powerful. As per some religious beliefs, benefic planets offer auspicious results, even in retrograde motion, while malefic planets give inauspicious results during their backwards motion. However, what we believe is that there is no specific difference in planetary influence during retrograde, although their behaviour changes a bit. During such movement, a planet makes you work extra hard and delays in granting you the rewards for the things which they represent. If we talk about Mars, it will have auspicious influence on Zodiac signs it favours. However, the signs which are not favoured by the planet might experience its malefic influence on them. This influence during its retrograde movement will be more significant than its progressive motion.
At present, two biggest planets - Jupiter and Saturn - are already in retrograde motion. And now the retrograde of third planet Mars may offer different types of results. As it is the significator of energy and strength, so it might enhance anger and irritation in a person. Whether a man or woman, Mars retrograde will rise masculinity, courage, vigor, strength and power in them. However, there are chances of increase in family disputes as well during this period. This movement of Mars will influence all 12 signs, but people with Mars Major period (Mahadasha), Sub period (Antardasha) or Sub - Sub period (Pratyantar Dasha) in their birth chart or with retrograde position of Mars in their birth chart, would get highly influenced by this retrograde of Mars in Capricorn.
