Reclaiming Retrogrades

with Leslie Francis

Leslie Francis speaking for NCGR San Diego


Reclaiming Retrogrades
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.

The Astrological Signature of Psychics, Mediums and Healers

with Cassandra Joan Butler

Cassandra Joan Butler speaking for NCGR San Diego


“The Astrological Signature of Psychics, Mediums and Healers”
Is there something unique about the natal charts of psychics, mediums, and healers? That was the question which spurred astrologer Cassandra Joan Butler to conduct a research study which gathered the charts of hundreds of these unique practitioners. Findings reflected her hypothesis about outer planetary effects on the subjects’ personal planets and offered some surprises. During her NCGR workshop Cassandra will share her research approach and findings. She will also introduce the participants to a unique method of enhancing one’s natural intuitive gifts, techniques she teaches as a faculty member at the ‘Fellowship of the Spirit.’ A most timely talk as Saturn transits Pisces!

Cassandra Joan Butler, BSW, MS, LMT has been a noted practitioner of astrology, spiritual development, and bodywork since 1987. Her astrology workshop experience includes presentations at UAC, SOTA, TAG, the CIA, and the Kepler Conference. Cassandra writes for several national publications and is the producer/host of the internet show `Cosmic Connections’. She is the founding pastor of the Divine Grace Fellowship Church, which blends astrological wisdom with a healing ministry. Cassandra is an enthusiastic NCGR member and enjoys astrological research and sharing with others.

Midpoint Magic: Interpreting Important Points

with Clarrisa Dolphin


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
