Neptune Retrograde square Saturn…a meditation on the persistence of beauty…

Astrology: Questions and Answers

Neptune turned retrograde on Monday 13th June 2016, at 12 degrees of its own sign of Pisces, making a second exact square with Saturn in Sagittarius on 18th June. The third and final square in this difficult planetary dance takes place at 10 degrees of their respective signs on 10th September 2016, after which the square gradually loses potency, reaching 10 degrees of separation by the end of 2016.

But, I try to provide a forum to many voices with the idea that each has something to contribute, ranging from absolute beginners to master astrologers such as yourself. (After all, how do the beginners reach mastery without practice? And how do they continue to practice without encouragement, such as reblogs? And, how do we all avoid becoming a narrow monoculture without the ideas of the many?)

        Thank you! That said, maybe we should move this to email. (I would rather not disclose some info quite so publicly.)
