The speed of Moon : The Moon takes 27.32 days to complete one round of the zodiac. It is the fastest planet, being the satellite and closest to earth’s orbit.
The speed of Mercury : Mercury is closest to Sun and is never more than 28 degrees away. Mercury takes on an average 88 days to circle round the Sun.
The speed of Mars : Mars is just outside the earth’s orbit around the Sun, and both astronomically and astrologically is the bridge to larger and distant planets from sun.
The speed of Saturn : Saturn takes on an average 29.5 years to orbit around the Sun. It is the slowest and the furthest planet from Sun known prior to the discovery of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in late, 18th, 19th century and early 20th century.
The speed of Uranus : Uranus takes approximately 84.02 years to travel round the Sun and to complete one round of the Zodiac.
The speed of Neptune : Neptune takes approximately 164.77 years to travel round the Sun and to complete one round of the Zodiac
The speed of Pluto: Pluto takes approximately 248.42 years to travel round the Sun and to complete one round of the Zodiac.
The speed of Rahu and Ketu : Rahu and Ketu, the two nodes of Moon are also considered as planets and is very important in individual predictive Vedic astrology. It is important to know about their speed also. Rahu/Ketu more or less move at a constant speed. It takes approximately 18 years to rotate around the Sun. Hence it takes on an average 1and half year to transit one Zodiac sign. By definition Rahu and Ketu will be always 180 degrees opposite to each other with respect to the Zodiac. What is most interesting about Rahu/Ketu pair is they are always moving as retrograde planet. That is if we observe these two points from Earth, it will always appear to be moving in the clockwise directions from one zodiac sign to the next zodiac sign. Whereas the natural
movement of all other planets between one zodiac sign to the next zodiac sign will appear to be anticlockwise except during their retrogression. Sun and Moon never have retrograde motion and they always move in anticlockwise direction around the Zodiac. More about retrogression will be discussed during the second semester.
