The Ag, the Agony, and the Reality of dealing with Retrogrades
The recent volcanic eruptions, financial market volatility, and abusive one
liners from the likes of Roseanne Barr, Joy Reid, and Samantha Bee are all
just part of the warm-up before Mars actually changes direction and starts
appearing to move backwards on the 26th.
All retrograde periods for all planets require special attention, but this one
for Mars is likely to be especially hideous, given Mars’ three squares with
Uranus before, during, and then after the retrograde. BUT WAIT!!! There’s
much more, but you’ll have to come to the lecture to find out about that.
Following a short general discussion of retrograde motion, planetary
stations (when a planet changes direction), and the shadow of a retrograde
(the area in the heavens where a planet is observed to move backwards),
we’ll move on to the details of this summer’s Mars retrograde, the Mercury
retrograde occurring during the Mars retro, and this fall’s Venus retrograde.
Time permitting, birth data of the attendees may used to illustrate potential
Please note: this is our final meeting before summer break. We hope to see you.
