Saturn, the biggest Karmic influencing planet will turn into retrograde motion while transiting Vrischik Rasi (Scorpio) on 14 March 2015 at 19:05 IST (13:35 UTC) according to K.P Ayanamsa.
It will be back in direct motion from 02 August 2015 at 09:49 IST (04:19 UTC).
During its entire retograde motion, Saturn will be travelling between Anuradha nakshatra’s 3rd quarter(paada) and 1st quarter.
Saturn gets into stationary position for some time and then keeps moving into forward direction with retarded speed. Saturn remains into stationary motion for some moments before it starts moving backward.
In the same way, before Saturn becomes progressive (turns into direct motion), it remains in retrograde zone and starts moving into forward direction till it gains full speed.
Saturn retrogrades whenever Sun enters one Trine sign from its position and comes back into direct motion while Sun transits another Trine sign.
Usually this period is less than 5 months.
