After an extended stay in his home sign of Aries, Mars moves into Taurus on 6 January, staying until 3 March. In the sign of the bull, Mars shows his more sexual side, and he also helps us to put our plans into action in concrete ways. It’s a good time for building, but also for pruning (literally and figuratively).
This C*I*A event is now over, Yet all access recordings and downloads are available, for this the exclusive astrological update, from the World’s best and most respected astrologers in their fields. Including Michael Lutin, Lynn Bell, Kaypacha, Bill Meridian,Wendy Stacey, Georgia Stathis, Armand Diaz, Julija Simas.
Mars continues his climb up the craggy Capricorn mountain through the first half of March, squaring partnership asteroid Juno on the 13th and sextiling Neptune on the 14th. These aspects suggest some tensions in relationships as we test the boundaries of our more intimate connections. Mars/Neptune always indicates a time when we can go beyond limits – whether speeding on the highway or pressing an issue at work.
Mars wades out of the dark waters of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on the third day of 2020, starting the year and the decade in the upward-leaning sign of the archer. In Jupiter’s home sign, Mars is more outgoing and assertive, acting on beliefs and fighting for a cause. The fiery nature of Sagittarius is suited to Mars’ temperament, even if its emphasis on philosophy is not.
If the best defense is a good offense, we’re likely to feel very safe over the six weeks that Mars traverses his second home of Scorpio. Yet for many of us, there could be some anxieties brewing as the Cosmic Warrior is both active and reactive after being bogged down by paperwork and procedures in Libra.
Mars plays defense in the sign of the scorpion. He’s up on the castle walls, firing catapults and arrows at the invaders – and perhaps also mistakenly at guests and well-meaning visitors. Usually, he fires a few warning shots before taking serious aim, but that may not be the case this time around.
The Cosmic Warrior strides into Libra on the 4th of October this year, only to be reminded by his host, Venus, to wipe his muddy boots – or better yet leave them at the door. Mars isn’t too happy in rule-oriented and mannered Libra, but he’ll be quite busy over the next six weeks. The theme of this time is overcoming restrictions, as we work through Mars in Libra while Mercury is retrograde (or in his shadow). Little is said or done directly, and we could feel that backroom deals are going on out of sight, or that we’re mired in bureaucracy.
After an energized march through Leo, Mars tiptoes into Virgo on the 18th of August. The planet that rules warriors and athletes is a little uncomfortable in the sign of the virgin: will he work to despoil the sign, or channel his energy into constructive service?Probably a little of both. Mars in Virgo can amp up issues over genetically modified food (or the food supply in general), healthcare, and the environment. We should remember that Mars can play on both sides of any of these issues, lending a fighting spirit to organic farmers but also to Monsanto.
The Next Turning Point June Solstice !
Uranus in Taurus – and the roles of Venus and Mars retrograde during the coming Months!.
It all begins at this weekend’s Solstice with Mars and Venus opposite each other on the Nodal axis.
Join Agents Armand Diaz, Cassandra Butler, Patricia L Bell and Julija , presenting what we did at our Buffalo, NY conference 2 weeks ago on Uranus in Taurus, a major player in the next Mars retrograde, making a square to Uranus during eclipse season, and Venus’ next retrograde opposite Uranus.
It’s a pretty event filled couple of months coming up and it’s best to be prepared and better equipped with the help of the Agents of the C*I*A and astrology!!

Astrologers have for centuries been invoking the Hermetic maxim, “As above, so below” to explain that meaning is threaded through the entire universe, from the microscopic to the macroscopic levels. And this is the perspective that best serves modern astrology. It is not that matter creates consciousness (no one has ever explained how that could be) and it isn’t necessarily the case that mind creates matter.
About the C*I*A
The Cosmic Intelligence Agency (C*I*A) is a network of astrologers and other cosmically minded individuals who aim to further understand and advance CONSCIOUSNESS* INTENTION*ASTROLOGY. We share a vision of the world soul, raising consciousness to the Anima Mundi, the universal energies and archetypal patterns that can be observed in the ceaseless cyclic movements of the cosmos. For millennia, humans have engaged with the cosmic sphere to seek meaning, guidance and inspiration. We continue this relationship to the cosmos as our focus and our Agency’s role in the evolution of consciousness.
