While some have given retrogrades have gotten a bad rap (thanks, Mercury), they are great opportunities for do-overs, almost like a time machine. Retrogrades are a time when planets appear to move backward in the sky, though in reality they only appear that way. Every planet and asteroid in our solar system has a retrograde phase.Retrogrades don’t have to be destabilizing or earth-shattering, with attention and care they can be times of deep transformation, growth, and healing. This short lecture will explore the current and upcoming retrogrades as well as offer tips and tricks for working with, instead of against, them. This workshop is 30min and by donation on June 10th.
Rebecca M. Farrar, M.A., aka Wild Witch of the West, is an astrologer and lover living in San Francisco, CA. Before studying archetypal astrology more than eight years ago, she was a huge skeptic of astrology. Though now offers astrology readings with a down-to-Earth approach utilizing her studies on the evolution of consciousness and psychology. Her readings focus on the asteroids, feminine archetypes, relationships, and life purpose. In 2013, she completed her M.A. at the California Institute of Integral Studies in the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness (PCC) program. Pre-astro geek and coming out of the “broom” closet, I worked for more than a decade in PR and marketing and had brief forays as TV reporter, speed dating hostess, spokesmodel, yoga instructor, and world traveler. When not staring at astrology transits, she can be found wandering Ocean Beach, which she acknowledges is sacred Ohlone land, curled up with a good book, or “force” cuddling her kitty Freyja.
