Retrograde planets are always stronger for good or for ill depending on your personal karmic time and world situations. Time is the ruler.
They are helping us to clear up anything that was not clear the last go around of the area they have already covered in regular motion. They can act like a steam roller that has gone over you once but backs up to take another go over while saying did you understand the first time and we are just checking?
To add to this rewinding Mercury will go retrograde at the April 28th. These most certainly are interesting times it is not your imagination.
Pray, do mantra (mind tool) Qigong, hike, breath, connect with nature, stay calm, focus on what you want because you get what you focus on, walk, run, exercise and be silent when possible.
As usual it could be a great time or not!
