When five or more planets are retrograde at the same time the world appears to slow down. You may attract energy at some imperceptible level and it can feel like you are living in another dimension. You might feel like you’re from some other planet or other reality, so there is less inner uncertainty. You may experience feelings of isolation or of being different.
More than four planets in retrograde motion also make it more difficult for people to understand each other. It seems like there are more bad things happening in the world. More violence, psychological abuse, accidents, suicides, and death. Understanding and compassion seem to be lacking.
With the world slowing down, material events can act as blockages that allow you to develop internally and mature. This helps you you find reassurance within yourself.
