Explaining the Chakras

The Kalachakra motion procedes through the 12 Rasis. So the normal Gati will be from Aries to Taurus etc until Pisces is reached.

But there is a change of signs that depends on the ambiguity of the lords of the Rasis.

Like a planet with direct and retrograde motion. or like the wheel that goes up and down. or like a pendulum.
