Reclaiming Retrogrades

with Lesley Francis

Expand your understanding of retrograde planets beyond the one-dimensional view that they are weak and ineffectual by exploring them through a lens that shows they are not only strong and powerful but as important to our lives as planets in direct motion. Everything in life cannot and is not always forward movement. Enter the retrograde planets whose purpose is to remind us that we have an inner life, an inner reality that provides a different kind of fuel and a different pathway to living life.

Diane Ronngren

October 2020: We have some sad news to share with you all about one of our NCGR San Diego Board members. Our beloved Vice President, Diane Ronngren, recently transitioned from this earthly plane. She is now with the stars she loved and watched for many, many years, and reuniting with family, friends, and pets she’s not been with in quite some time.

This is a devastating loss for many of us who held Diane close in our hearts, and she will be greatly missed. Because of the pandemic, we are unable to gather together in person to celebrate Diane’s life. If you wish to do something to commemorate Diane’s life and contribution to astrology, I’m sure she would be honored to have donations made in her name to the Helen Woodward Animal Center
