The chart above belongs to Hugh Hefner and has Saturn retrograde in the 3rd house of the chart and Mercury retro in the 7th house- When the ascendant lord is retrograde, and that too in the 7th house of the chart, It means the native will do something odd related to relationships and in the sign of Pisces will think about being liberated.
The another planet which is retrograde is in 3rd house of communication and that is 5th lord, and this native started communicating his weird ideas and guess the dasa — It was dasa of Saturn retrograde — Saturn is in martian sign and — Saturn Mars dasa was the start of Playboy magazine.
