September 4th Venus begins to move direct at 12 degrees, and at the same time, Jupiter begins to move retrograde. We have Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, Jupiter, and Saturn are all retrograded in September. Retrograde planets make the planets stronger because they keep going over the same points in the chart. This is why astrologers remind us that we finish or make a turnaround during a retrograde period. We literally review and redo where the retrograde planet has been in the chart until the planet moves forward.
