A planet is stationary direct at the end of it's retrograde period. When a planet turns stationary it is time carry forward. You're on the go and your direction is up. You can recover the ground upon which you recently backtracked.
This term refers to the point where a planet changes direction to go from direct to retrograde, or from retrograde to direct. Similar to the way a pendulum swings one way, then slows down and pauses (becomes stationary or still briefly) before it changes direction, a planetary station is when a planet has slowed down and seems to become still, before it resumes its motion in the opposite direction. When a planet pauses and changes direction like this, it is called a Planetary Station. See also: Direct, Retrograde, Shadow (planetary). See also the article series on Retrograde Planets, including an article specifically on the Stations.
The period in which a planetary position appears motionless from Earth's perspective, and occurs with the change from retrograde to direct, or direct to retrograde, motion. The Sun and Moon are never stationary.
stationary motion : Term used to describe apparent lack of motion when a planet's direction of travel changes from direct (forward in the zodiac) to retrograde (backward in the zodiac) or vice versa. Planetary energy, focused at the stationary position, is considered strong in a horoscope when a planet is stationary.
