Different Types of Motion of Saturn
Bhaskaracharya has mentioned about eight types of planetary motions which are given below:
“वक्रानुवक्रा कुटिला मन्दा मन्दतरा समा
तथा शीघ्रतरा शीघ्रा ग्रहाणामष्टदधा गति
तत्रतिशीघ्रा शीघ्रारंया मन्द मन्दतरा समा
ऋज्वीति पचधज्ञे या या वक्रा सानुवक्रगा”!
In other words, retrograde, semi-retrograde, shifty, slow, slowest, average, fast, fastest.
Among all these motions, semi-retrograde and shifty both come under retrograde position.
