Mercury retrograde in Libra: why you might not even feel it

Saturn retrograde in Scorpio: plumbing the depths

Saturn retrograde in Scorpio – ouch! This isn’t a combination many people look forward to.

Saturn retrograde: the art of pruning

Saturn retrograde? Oh no! Due to lack of understanding and negative hype, the word ‘retrograde’ has a tendency to freak people out.
