Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Pluto and Mercury - be careful as you enter the Retrograde Zone!

Help June 4, 2016

This Spring has seen 5 planets retrograde. And we aren't done. We are entering into a seven-year cycle of more intense retrograde periods. If you haven't had enough so far, join us for a special webinar on retrogrades by Donna Woodwell and Nick Dagen Best. 

Our presentesr will discuss the astronomy and astrology of retrogrades, including

  • How retrograde motion works and why there have been so many planets retrograde at the same time;
  • Why the dire warnings about retrogrades are often hype, but not always - how you can know the difference;
  • How retrogrades affect each planet differently, and how that translates to you personally; 
  • Why retrograde shadow periods can affect us; and
  • How retrogrades work in the astrological chart through the use of examples.
