In astrology, retrogrades are a necessary part of life. Even though the mere mention of the word “retrograde” could leave you with a whole bunch of anxiety, there’s no escaping the fact that sometimes, the planets love to move backward. At best, planetary retrogrades are an opportunity to lay low, embrace introspection, and tie off some loose ends. At worst, a retrograde can pave the way for the most awkward and frustrating situation imaginable. Either way, you’ll survive it. If you’re wondering what planets are retrograde during September 2021, take a deep breath, because the answer is a whopping seven.
Yes, you read that right. There will be seven retrogrades this month, and although that number sounds ridiculously high, there’s no reason to freak out. After all, the vast majority of these retrogrades involve outer planets, and in astrology, outer planets are already retrograde nearly half of the year, which makes the impact of their retrogrades less noticeable (at least at first). However, there is one retrograde that might give you a hard time, and that one happens to be the most famous (or infamous) of them all: Mercury retrograde.
Regardless, the cosmos have got a lot planned this September — especially when it comes to retrogrades. Here’s what you should know about all seven of them:
Pluto (April 27 to Oct. 6)
Saturn (May 23 to Oct. 10)
Jupiter (June 20 to Oct. 18)
Neptune (June 25 to Dec. 1)
Chiron (July 15 to Dec. 19
Uranus (Aug. 19 to Jan. 18, 2022)
Mercury (Sept. 27 to Oct. 18)

SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 2020
On this day, the Moon will be in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the Moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The period lasts around 7 days, with the Moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon. During a Waxing Gibbous, the Moon will rise in the east in mid-afternoon and will be high in the eastern sky at sunset. The Moon is then visible though most of the night sky setting a few hours before sunrise. The word Gibbous first appeared in the 14th century and has its roots in the Latin word “gibbosus,” meaning humpbacked.

Planets in Retrograde
When a planet is in retrograde it means that, from our perspective on Earth, the planet appears to be going backwards. It doesn’t really change direction, yet astrologists believe that retrograde planets do affect us: our moods, behavior, energy, and events around us.
Saturn in retrograde is nothing unusual as the planet spends over a third of our Earth year appearing to travel backwards. You may see references to ‘station’ in connection to retrogrades. This is the time when the planet seems to stop moving, before either seeming to go backwards, or to resume forward movement after a retrograde period has ended.
Qualities of Saturn
Saturn has a bit of a bad rap in the astrology world. It is the planet of structure, authority, and discipline. It’s also connected to feelings of sorrow, heaviness of mood and loneliness. Yet Saturn is also designated as the planet of hidden blessings…
