"Geocentricity might well be egocentricity". The phenomenon of retrograde motion is based on our Earth-centered view of the solar system, but the movement and cycles of retrograde planets are based entirely on the apparent motion of the Sun through the zodiac. Retrograde Planets by Erin Sullivan organizes and explains retrograde motion from a systems-viewpoint — the system of the Sun and planets — and interprets retrograde planets natally, by progression, and in transit.

Reviews:

Retrograde Planets by Erin Sullivan is one of my all-time favorite astrology books. It made the movements of the planets understandable to me as no other book has. It includes detailed descriptions of the retrograde cycles of *all* the planets, and gives examples of how to use them in delineation. I found the parts about progressed aspects and stations particularly useful. Transits are included as well. There are many example charts with case histories to illustrate the principles Erin Sullivan so clearly explains. I'd choose this book as part of an "essential" astrological library.
____________________________

Retrograde Planets by Erin Sullivan has an amazing amount of info, written with great depth by Erin Sullivan. It is a classic & must be read cover-to-cover. This is one for the serious Astrologer/student, & will be worth your effort! Some Astrology books seem slim in content...this one is chocked full of information on a sometimes ignored factor which occurs in most charts. Put your best thinking cap on for this one! Bravo, Erin!

Erin Sullivan
's book, Retrograde Planets, was a landmark of sorts in astrology at the time it was first published in 1992. It was the first user-friendly astrology text/book to really address the issue of retrogrades in an in-depth and thought-full manner. Retrograde planets seem to turn around and go backward from our perspective on earth. During their backwards transit, they encourage us to look at the "under" or "other" side of things, thus the title of my review.

We are all used to Mercury's retrograde three times a year, or we should be or at least have heard of it.
Retrograde Planets by Erin Sullivan doesn't stop there. She considers the nature and mechanics of retrogression as it affects the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and the outer planets as well. You will not find a more thorough or READABLE explanation of this important phenomena. Erin Sullivan also gives a good long chapter to retrograde natal planets and the secondary progression of retrograde planets or planets to retrograde. Not the most exciting writer in the world, Erin Sullivan is nonetheless, thorough, methodical, devoted to her work and readable enough. I give this 5 stars not because the book is a real can't put downer, but rather because Erin Sullivan is a meticulous astrologer who really knows her stuff. "Retrograde Planets" should be considered a good intermediate reference volume for the budding professional astrology.
