2021 Planetary Retrograde

All the planets in the Solar system move around the Sun as also the Earth. But from the earthly perspective it seems as if the earth is not moving, and all the planets are moving around the earth with it as the centre. This is just an optical illusion. Hence the planets appear to stop, go backward referred to as retrograde, stop again and go forward called as Direct motion.

When the planets are in retrograde it is best to avoid new ventures and stick to routine jobs.

Find below the different planet retrograde details for the year 2021 :
