Psychotherapist :: Astrologer :: Teacher

My favorite human just released his cover album, TAKE COVER! I would love for you to listen right here and soak up all the magic of Travis DiRuzza. Travis very much channels his natal Venus opposite Uranus, in a Yod with Neptune and Pluto.

Message from Travis:

I am excited to release Take Cover, an album of cover songs I performed, recorded, and produced myself on guitar and voice. Please have a listen on my website here and have a look around the site while you’re there—I’ve added many of the albums I’ve recorded on (more still being added!)

Jessica and I are expecting our daughter at the beginning of November, and with all the Covid curtailments, this incubation period has been especially creative and productive for us. After completing my PhD in philosophy and religion this year, I’ve had more time to return to music. Take Cover started out as a demo project to get some gigs in bars and restaurants on our little beach island. I’ve always been a bass player and honestly, have always been self-conscious about my singing voice, so this guitar and vocals project has been a humbling growth experience for me, plus all I’ve learned about recording and production along the way. I gathered my favorite songs over the years, ones that I love to play, that touch my heart, and are suited to my voice. The title of the album (besides referring to musical “takes” and the cover tunes) reflects the turbulent times we’re living in, especially the first and last tracks. But it also refers to the warm shelter we can offer one another during such times. Ever notice how almost every song ever is a love song, whether jubilant or broken?

Stay tuned for two more albums I am releasing in the coming months, The Wicked Wonder for jazz sextet and narration, and Perichoresis which brings together music, dance, visual art, and poetry. Hit the “follow” button on the bottom of my website to stay abreast of all my creations.

Lastly, I want to mention trustpsyche school, Jessica and my educational initiative for astrology, psychology, and philosophy. We’ve been busy teaching online classes, webinars, and events, and recently celebrated over 100 students worldwide. We’re offering three new courses in 2021 and look forward to hosting in-person retreats in the future.

With love,

Travis

Jessica DiRuzza and Christina Hardy have a rich conversation on the Saturn-Uranus cycle of time and how it relates to our current moment (closing song: Travis DiRuzza plays Don’t Stop by Fleetwood Mac).

Christina Hardy, MA from transpersonalservices.com | email: christina@transpersonalservices

Christina has been a practicing astrologer for 17 years. After receiving her Masters in Transpersonal Psychology at John F. Kennedy University, she studied archetypal astrology for 5 years at the California Institute of Integral Studies with Rick Tarnas. She then expanded her practice by studying evolutionary astrology under Kim Marie Weimer and became certified in June 2019.

Christina previously worked as a Director of Career & Academic Advising at Youngstown State University in Ohio. She combines her astrological knowledge with her 15 years’ experience helping people find careers that nourish their soul while meeting their practical needs.

She is also a certified Deep Memory Process practitioner (taught by Patricia Walsh) and offers past-life hypnotherapy as a tool for understanding and healing one’s present life issues. She draws upon all these traditions to illumine the evolutionary intent of the soul, helping her clients navigate life’s challenges.

You can find more information about Christina at her website www.transpersonalservices.com. You will also find YouTube presentations describing the philosophy of evolutionary astrology as well as information about her upcoming courses in September 2020.

*For those of you who would like to learn Evolutionary Astrology, I highly recommend you study with Christina. She has an upcoming online EA course for beginners. Go to her website, transpersonalservices, to find out more information and to register for the upcoming September 2020 online course.

I felt called to create this 20-minute IGTV video yesterday after seeing my clients. Recording these videos on my  Instagram and YouTube channels, helps me integrate my understanding of psyche, relationships, what it means to be human, and archetypal dynamics expressed through our lives. Thank you for tuning in and joining me.

YOU CAN WATCH THE VIDEO HERE ON MY INSTAGRAM CHANNEL

Your time and your energy are your two most precious and limited resources in this life. How we choose to use them directly makes the quality of life we live. We all need support to imagine a better life for ourselves. Are the choices you’re making worth it? Will you die with your heart open and in peace? These types of questions have helped me to make the life choices I need to, in order to have the life I want to live. I love my life and I love you. ❤️

I really loved making this video for you. It’s helpful for me to share my insights through these livestreams, as the inspiration flows. Thank you for listening and being with me on this Cosmic journey!

The planets Jupiter and Saturn are in alignment during this time (January 2020 – April 2021). Jessica shares her insights about their archetypal inseparability in our personal lives and reflections on how to live with Joy and Sorrow intertwined. We hope you enjoy this livestream, and we always love to hear your thoughts and reflections below the video on what is happening in your life.

The Great Conjunction is the coming together of two old friends – Jupiter and Saturn. This planetary alignment occurs once every 20 years. Right now, as you look to the southeast after sunset in the northern hemisphere, you will see these two magnificent celestial bodies, known as the Star of Bethlehem. We have cherished our time in viewing these two old friends in the night sky, night after night, here on our little island of Siesta Key in the Gulf of Mexico. Jupiter and Saturn will be visible to us in their conjunction until April of 2021 (began January 2020). This episode of Stream shares our understanding of Jupiter and Saturn. We hope you enjoy, old friend.

All our love and blessings from our family to yours,

Here is a 4-minute video to invite you to join me for a free astrology webinar for all trustpsyche students.

I would love to see you on Friday, August 14th at 1PM ET / 10AM PT for a 90-minute live Q&A on Zoom for all trustpsyche students. My intention in offering this astrology webinar is to bring together all trustpsyche students around the world to share sacred space while having meaningful and enriching dialogue with one another. Whether you have taken Initiation to Archetypal Astrology, Deepen Your Astrological Practice, Embodying Astrology, or Astrological Counseling I would love to see you there on the 14th. We are celebrating over 100 students worldwide! RSVP to receive the link at trustpsyche.com/events or on the trustpsyche home page.

This time will be fully dedicated to answering your questions. I will not prepare any material to teach. Please refrain from asking personal questions about your birth chart. Instead, reframe the question so that everyone may benefit from hearing the answer. For example, if you are curious about what your natal grand cross means, ask the question like this, “if someone has a grand cross in their birth chart, how do we interpret that?” I always like to ask my questions in a way that both benefits my learning and curiosity, as well as that of everyone else listening.

In 2021, trustpsyche will offer three new online astrology courses for all levels. Personal Transits in Astrology, Aspects in Astrology, and The Astronomy and Cultural History of Astrology. 

Now is a good time to begin studying with me if you have been considering taking astrology classes. The two courses available right now are Initiation to Archetypal Astrology and Deepen Your Astrological Practice. I recommend beginning with IAA and then doing DYAP. Together the two create a very strong foundation for all levels of astrologer learners and practitioners. These two courses are designed for spiritual seekers, personal development, therapists, coaches, healers, yoga instructors, and anyone wanting to bring astrology more fully into their personal and professional lives.

I would also love to stay connected with you more frequently on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube where I post weekly on archetypal astrology & depth psychology.

Lastly, here is my monthly Stream Podcast: Archetypal Astrology & Depth Psychology where I host a variety of guests and have awesome conversations.

It is such an honor to be your teacher and to have the opportunity to share and create this body of knowledge and wisdom with you. If you cannot make the live webinar, it will be recorded for you to access later. You still need to sign-up at trustpsyche.com/events.   I very much look forward to our special time together. I love teaching and it is pure joy for me to get to be with each of you.

To all my students around the world, I want to see you and spend time together. Whether we have worked with one another in person or online, I invite YOU to this free webinar, exclusively for trustpsyche students, for you to ask all the questions you have been holding. The live Q&A will be hosted on Zoom on Friday, August 14th at 1PM ET (10AM PT) for approximately 90 minutes. RSVP to receive the link at trustpsyche.com/events or on the home page.
