Venus, the goddess of beauty and love, will conjunct Uranus, the liberator. Although this is a fast moving aspect, it is a very interesting and important one, especially since Mars, Venus’ counterpart, is now retrograde and Venus is in his sign, Aries. This dynamic puts both into play and their fascinating polarity will yet again be a reality in our lives.
Without an awareness of the basic fingerprint of the cosmos, one will never have a true understanding of an interface between the pyscho-spiritual and the bio-material realms. With the awareness of this numerical cosmic fingerprint, one is inevitably lead to the realization that both the spiritual and material domains are indeed one and the same, operating at different vibrational orders, always seeking to achieve harmonic resonance.
With Regulus about to move into Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus move into the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world.
Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun and Virgo an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The shift from one to the other brings with it a new focus, a new energy.
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.
A new paper, published by physicist Gregory Matloff, has brought the idea back into scientific discussions, promising experimental tests that could “validate or falsify” the concept of a ubiquitous “proto-consciousness field.” Matloff also pushes the controversial idea of volitional stars, suggesting there is actually evidence that stars control their own galactic paths.
We use the Earth as a framework for our charts but the astrological wheel is more a subjective background in our minds.
We don’t consider Earth as its own independent entity with qualities, like we do Mars or Jupiter. We just see it as part of our everyday life.
Consequently, we may not understand Earth like we think we do. Astrology is a symbolic language, everything we know about the world we extrapolate from our symbols and apply them to our lives. What does Earth really represent to us? What is the meaning of Earth to astrologers and our clients? Is there a sign that belongs to Earth?
The most common question we astrologers get from sceptics is: What is the physical mechanism by which celestial bodies influence our life?
Sceptics like to say that astrology is pseudoscience because no scientific proof exists that there’s a physical mechanism by which celestial bodies affect our thinking or decision-making processes.
Jeff Lieberman, an MIT-trained artist, scientist and engineer, makes a scientific argument for mystical experience. He asks us to challenge our perception of what we are, our relationship to the universe, and our relationship to one another. Our minds are “thought-generating machines.” What we would happen if we could turn off the machine? If we could transcend our individual experience of the world?

How simple mathematics and number theory is beginning to back up the foundations of astrological systems, and who those systems connect to more than just individual psychology but all organic and inorganic forms as well.
About the C*I*A
The Cosmic Intelligence Agency (C*I*A) is a network of astrologers and other individual around the globe 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, the 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.
