Astrology Conferences and Retreats around the globe

Whether you are a student of astrology, hobbyist or any kind of professional, I strongly recommend meeting up with fellow tribe members. That might be at a meetup, class, group setting, or one of my favorites, a conference. Conferences happen every so many months in various spots around the world. At each, a number of name and other astrologers present work that is old or new, basic or complex, and so on. It is definitely a way to fill yourself up at a metaphorical buffet of astrology knowledge, and to see what you really know.

Journey to the heart of Australia, the red centre, for a four night star camp, April 2017. The night skies of Mbarntwe* are awe-inspiring, you will see the magnificence of the Milky Way as you have never seen it before.
We have chosen the date to allow for moonless nights. There is nothing in the world quite like sleeping in a swag, with the night sky as your heavenly blanket.


Since 2014’s Star Camp in March 2014, it was t0 be the C*I*A’s next big event this time with the inspiring and popular Kaypacha, our Agent Five-O. It was not surprisingly booked out, with 12 Agents and 45 attendees. The timing of the event was picked to coincide with Kaypacha’s Tour in Australasia, during a significant Chiron opposite Jupiter transit and we managed to find the perfect place, the Maitripa Buddhist Centre in the hills of HEALesville, Victoria.

Screen Shot 2015-05-30 at 9.13.40 pm Join us for a unique  3 day retreat with the wonderful and inspiring Kaypacha, C*I*A’s Agent Five-0 and the C*I*A, as we go on an astrological journey exploring the archetype of the astrological Chiron, the wounded healer. The weekend begins with a new Moon at 19° Scorpio, trine Chiron in Pisces opposite Jupiter, all potent symbols of what the weekend holds for us.

Chiron, the Wounded Healer/Rainbow Bridge –

Astrology is far more than a predictive tool to tell the future.  It is a source of deep understanding, truth, and healing.  This weekend  will focus on astrology as a means for identifying, feeling, and mastering our challenges as human beings with an indepth experience of Chiron, his archetype, symbols and images as well as experiences that help us illuminate our chironic life journey.   Chiron, by sign, house, and aspect symbolizes for us where we have been wounded in our past, how to heal that wound, and how that wound plays a major role in our process of self-mastery and the healing of others.  It will be made clear through our experience together how our wound can become our healing medicine for the world.

Thursday 12th,  – Arrive from 4pm and get your Room KEY! Settle in and get orientated in the lovely grounds of the Maitripa Centre.
6:30pm – Intro and opening by the C*I*A –  A New Moon in Scorpio and the dark night skies invite us to a deep and meaningful weekend.
Followed by KAYPACHA   The Astrology of 2015 and Beyond: This introductory talk will set the foundation for the weekend by describing the current astrological patterns. We are all currently experiencing the intense shift of consciousness in many ways that astrology can help us to understand and navigate more smoothly.
8:00pm – A special welcome Dinner – created by our wonderful Agent chef, vegetarian options available.

Star Camp 2014

The 2014 C*I*A Agents*In*The*Outback*Star*Camp was star-studded, adventurous, soulful and a truly life-changing experience. Planned to maximize star gazing possibilities (incorporating the dark of the moon and New Moon and good weather), reflections on the opening chart for this event accurately forecast big adventures. Jupiter was on the Midheaven,
