March 5: Retrograde Primer (class)


Retrograde Primer

Retrogrades vary in detail, yet they all follow a similar framework. In this workshop, we’ll find out about the different phases every retrograde goes through- in addition to some of their differences- and we’ll explore some thoughts of what each phase is most suited to. We can time out some of the retrogrades from 2019 to see how they have worked in your chart, as well as looking forward a bit into the retrogrades of 2020. Please bring your natal chart.

We can take payment via PayPal, our ID is [email protected] and we ask that you please select ‘sending money to friends and family’. We offer a sliding scale to accommodate students at various economic levels. Please select the amount that you feel most comfortable paying. Sliding Scale A benefits the Jen Gouvea Memorial Scholarship Fund. Sliding Scale B helps to get the word out about PSA. We do not have payment plans for our classes in the Quarterly Term schedule. Please contact us if you have any questions.

How Does The Sliding Scale Work?

When making a sliding scale selection and you get the message “out of stock”, that sliding scale selection is sold out. Make another sliding scale selection to join the class. Paying on the higher end of the scale helps for us to make astrology as accessible as possible through the Jen Gouvea Memorial Scholarship.
