Except for Phoebe and the new batch of retrograde moons around Saturn, an optimal chart has no retrogrades which only 7% of the population has! :44:
Everyone has a soul represented by a heliocentric chart loaded with direct planets; Astrology calls most everything a planet, so direct is an advantage, stationary is unique, and retrograde is "sometimes" okay! :24: :22:

- "Mean" Nodes (both north and south) are ALWAYS retrograde with average daily speed cca -0°03’…

- "True" Nodes (both north and south) are sometimes retrograde; and sometimes direct with various speed:…=

I did my chart with some software that said my nn was direct while the sn was retrograde.
this looks like some technical glitch; or maybe that software was using a mixture of True North node & Mean South node :32:

I´ve seen that many planets in my birth chart are in "almost-stationary speed" if such terminology exist?! Is speed very close to zero (e.g. -0.05 to +0.05, or even more) still assumed to be stationary? Or it has to be exactly 0.00 ? Is anywhere a good resource for interpretation of speed of directions?

I think it´s quite similar to orbs (you can choose your personal preference) and there are two approaches how to determine a stationary planet:

1) by the fixed number of days (+- few days before/after the exact 0.00 speed => stationarity)

2) by the % of the average speed (if the speed is bellow some small % of average speed => stationarity)

skyscript might give some inspiration:…
