Understanding Transits and Retrogrades of Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron

The in retrograde motion is an illusion of the planet moving backwards based on the placement of the planet in relation to the Earth and the Sun. Each of these planets retrograde motion approximately once per year as the Sun is in a sign that is opposing (or close to opposing) that particular planet's transiting sign. Jupiter typically is in retrograde motion about 120 days. Saturn's usual retrograde motion period is about 140 days and Chiron's is in retrograde motion approximately 145 days. The retrograde for Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron generally encompass 35 percent to 40 percent of the year with Saturn being closer to 35% [four - four and one half months] while Jupiter and Chiron are closer to 40% [four and one half - five months]. When the planet is done transiting in retrograde motion, it will station briefly then resume the transit in direct motion.

To adjust the times for your timezone, add or subtract the number of hours your timezone is from 0 UT. If you live in the western hemisphere (mostly the Americas) you would subtract the number of hours from the time shown on the table. Most of the eastern hemisphere will add hours to the time shown in the table.
