All Planets Moving Forward

January 10, 2020 Uranus stationed direct beginning over a month (37 days) of all planets moving forward. On February 16, 2020 Mercury stationed retrograde ending the first of two All Planets Moving Forward in 2020.

On March 09 Mercury stationed direct creating 47 more days of all planets moving forward until Pluto stations retrograde on April 25. This extra 47 days is a rare recurrence with more to occur over the next few years. See table below.

Since March 9 it seems the energy has been charging ahead while we have been asked to stay in place. We might wonder what is going on behind the scenes? Is this designed to be a global take over or a global wake up call or both?

Is this forward moving time designed to accelerate our personal growth by reducing outside distractions and giving us time to contact our inner knowing, strength and courage?

This article is a work in progress with more being added over time.

What does it Mean and Why do We Care?

All Planets are ALWAYS moving forward but from the Earth’s perspective they appear to reverse direction (astrologically this is called a retrograde) and from the Earth we see the planet moving back across the same stars it just passed.
So All Planets moving forward occurs when not one single planet is in Retrograde motion as measured or witnessed from the Earth. As already stated, from a solar system point of view, no planet is actually ever moving backward.
However, similar to passing cars on the Freeway – where it can feel like the car you are passing is moving backward, even though you know it is actually moving forward. The same is true for the planets – there can be a visual sensation from the Earth that a planet is moving backward.
All Planets Moving Forward suggests a time for Full Speed Ahead into whatever we are creating or desiring to create. This is a powerful time to take progressive action toward a heart felt intention. But wait there is more…

What is the intent of a Planetary Retrograde?

The retrograde time of any planet could be considered a time for stepping back and visioning in ways that are connected to the archetypal energy of that planet. It is about planting seeds or intention for forward movement when the planet goes direct.

From this perspective then we can see retrograde planets provide a space for deeper inner reflection designed to help us move forward with the time is optimal.


When ALL the planets are moving  forward the momentum is in a forward direction creating a full speed ahead momentum with whatever we are dreaming into or where we are focusing our attention. This isn’t good or bad, but rather is about what we choose to do with it.

Having a well thought intention to move forward at this time is recommended taking advantage of the forward momentum acting on what feels most alive and on purpose for the best results possible.

The Greater Collective Intent we Can Energize
If we imagine all the planets are moving forward together and perhaps there energy is collaborative and constructive, we can also imagine it is a time when (if we choose it) we can move forward together on planet Earth, ideally with an intention that benefits all life.

The Shadow
With all planets moving forward there is very little that encourages us to slow down and reflect on what is happening. This means a shadow experience of a full speed ahead time can be challenging and may even result in reckless choices and results. So while this is a good time to take advantage of the forward momentum it is wise to consider what feels most alive and on purpose to engage for the best results possible.

Where the Shamanic Astrology Perspective on this Originated
Since at least 2007, Daniel Giamario and I have been doing monthly member calls for those who support the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School through membership. These calls have been an amazing way to go deeper into the cycles and seasons occurring each month.

In November 2008, during our monthly member’s call, Daniel and I noticed that not one planet was retrograde, all the planets were moving forward for over a month. At that time we didn’t know how often this happened and had never even considered what it might mean. We began to contemplate what it would mean for the coming month and also what it would mean if a person was born with all planets moving forward?

Much more research and direct experience is needed to adequately answer these questions, however, what follows is a beginning look at when the planets move forward from 2000 to 2025. Some years the timing is brief, other years not at all. Stay tuned for updates to this content.

All Natal Planets Moving Forward and US Presidents
All Planets Moving Forward and US Presidential Inaugurations

So far in the historical record NOT one President has ever served another term after being inaugurated with All Planets Direct. This is true for those serving their first term. Some were in their second term and wouldn’t have the possibility of serving another term due to the two term limit as described in the 22nd amendment ratified by Congress on February 27, 1951, limiting an elected president to two terms in office, or a total of eight years.

(Note: Franklin Rosevelt is the only president who served more than two terms)

Going back to 1900 there are only two presidential inaugurations that took place with all the planets moving forward. The first was the second inauguration of Ronald Reagan followed by the second inauguration of Bill Clinton. Trump is the first president in over 100 years to be inaugurated in his first term with all planets direct.

This was the first Presidential Inauguration streamed live on the Internet and the last inauguration of the 20th century. He was impeached by congress and acquitted by the Senate completing his term of office.

45th President Donald Trump January 20, 2017

NOTE: While I did my own research for this article, Wave Rayne (who was on the 2008 Shamanic Astrology Mystery School member’s call) also did an article on the presidents and all planets direct by birth and inauguration along with other articles she has written about this subject. I imagine there are others who have researched the significant timing of all planets moving forward and are writing about or have written about what they have found – as this is a rich area of research with more to discover.


  1. Hi Cayelin,

    Nice additional research on the Presidents and Inauguration Charts with APDM. It’s great to witness your insights. I am currently making videos to explain how I see the Solar System as a unified whole and also about the last Inauguration Chart.

    I totally miss all the night sky teachings, and sometimes it’s so sad I have nowhere to go to listen and see the night sky laid out in the knowledgable way I learned from Daniel. I was so completely into it and my best memory of all time I think is from doing the Vision Quest in Nevada and seeing a stampede of wild horses while watching 6 constellations move across the sky all night long. Unbelievable. All is well, Wave Rayne

  2. Hi Cayelin

    you say that when all planets are direct: ” it is a time for Full Speed Ahead into whatever we are creating or desiring to create.” You then say: “Not one President ever served another term after being inaugurated with All Planets Direct”. You even say that some of these presidents died 1 month after inauguration. Was it good for these presidents to go forward and accept the office? Is it good to go forward when all planets are direct? Do you mean that the action that we take when all the planets are direct, does not last? Are the actions that we make, when all planets are forward, fruitful? Do you have other examples about fruitful actions that took place when all the planets were direct?

    • Hi Laure, You ask really good questions. Only one president died one month after being inaugurated, William Harrison. I did feel that the pattern of no additional terms of office for any president in the last 250 or so years was worth noting and paying attention too.

      I also mention in the article there is a shadow side to All the Planets Moving Forward at Full Speed Ahead saying there is very little that inspires us to slow down and reflect on what is happening. In this case full speed ahead may be challenging and the direction unpredictable. However, if taking the time to consider your choices for moving forward and doing so wisely – it does feel like this is a time for moving forward in a good way.

      I am not drawing conclusions that actions take during this time do not last. I have had very fruitful actions that have lasted over time when I look at these time periods in my life. I have also had experiences where things didn’t work out but that was in hindsight. It might be if the actions taken were not properly planned then the energy might not be sustainable?

      So clearly more research and insight is needed to fully understand what is going on here. Hope that helps?
