Psychotherapist :: Astrologer :: Teacher

In my experience, being human means knowing pain, loss, fear, and confusion along with joy, felt intimacy, and meaningful connection. Meaningful relationship, with ourselves and with others, is the foundation of a balanced and flourishing life. And yet, so often our lives can be filled with difficult and challenging emotions. The archetype of the Moon is the psycho-somatic part of our being – our bodies, feelings, and emotions. The Moon is the relationship we have with our mother and family, our early childhood experiences, and how we nurture ourselves and others. Whereas the archetype of Jupiter expands whatever it touches so we must first look at what is being touched in the lunar dimension of life to understand what is being amplified here. Growth often comes with growing pains, some discomfort, anxiety, and fear of the unknown as we work our edges. Moon-Jupiter teaches us that when we take care of our core needs and nourish ourselves there is an abundance of support and maternal care that blesses our lives. When we get overly caught in what is comfortable and easy we sometimes miss the larger call to grow.

I wanted to re-share this podcast episode with you under today’s Moon-Jupiter-Chiron triple conjunction in Aries.

Sung to you by the lovely Travis DiRuzza.

Jupiter and Chiron are conjunct in the sky in the sign of Aries. This planetary energy represents the expansion and amplification of both our individual and collective pain, suffering, and wounds. At the same time, it also brings to life the healing we have done and are currently doing around tending to the places and spaces we are hurting. In that, there is a profound celebration and abundance that enters into our lives through that expansion of our power (not over, but with or alongside) when we practice embodying our truth and see that it becomes the medicine that is both for our highest good and the highest good of others. So much of the tending of Chironic wounds comes with how we live in deep compassion for our Self and that love (healing) that shows up when we show up to take care of what is hurting. The only thing we are responsible for is our part.

I would love for you to follow me on IG where I post my insights on astrology, psychology, and share some of my life!

You can also watch or listen to my video and podcast on Chiron right here.

In episode 32, Jessica shares her understanding of how the two planetary archetypes of Venus and Saturn work together in our everyday lives. She explores in depth how Saturn transiting Venus manifests in our relationships, with money, and our creative process.

I live streamed this 12-minute video on the current Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces on my Instagram at trust.psyche.

I have a renewed reverence for astrology. Most of which is being brought to light by both witnessing and understanding what our ancestors have done to bring into our world, and through my sky-watching practices and rituals. All of this is happening because I get the great privilege and fortune of studying with Travis DiRuzza in his course, The Astronomy and Cultural History of Astrology.

You can take this incredible course right here through Trust Psyche School of Astrology.

A live presentation on Saturday, February 19th, by Evolutionary and Archetypal Astrologer, Christina Hardy.

For the next 18 months, we will be undertaking Pluto’s journey into the underworld and the death-rebirth processes of our personal and collective psyches as the Moon’s nodal axis transits through the archetypes of Taurus & Scorpio from December 22, 2021 to July 12, 2023.

The South Node in Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, tells us that our collective and personal past karma is surfacing to be addressed. Do we have the courage to face our vulnerabilities, wounds and fears with fierce integrity? If we choose not do, we die only to be reborn in another time and place to be given another opportunity to face the dark shadows of our own psyches.

If we choose to face them, we naturally shift to the North Node of Taurus, ruled by Venus, where a deeper security is then created that aligns with the natural cycles of the earth and we are embraced by the earth’s healing forces for regeneration and renewal.

In this presentation, I will introduce evolutionary astrology’s philosophy of Pluto and the nodal axis as it describes our karmic past and evolutionary trajectory. I will also will look at the potential collective impact of this nodal transit that is occurring simultaneously with the United State’s Pluto Return. During the second hour, I will use a volunteer’s chart to showcase how you can work with the transiting nodal axis for your own healing.

I really love this episode, where Travis interviews me. I hope you enjoy our hour long conversation. We go to some special places together.

In episode 30, Jessica DiRuzza shares her experience and understanding of integrating astrology into her depth psychotherapy practice. She holds astrology as both a therapeutic tool and encompassing spiritual worldview that stimulates creativity, connection, and purpose in both client and therapist.

In this 30-minute episode, I discuss the current Saturn-Uranus alignment, first with regard to the upcoming Trust Psyche course on the History (Saturn) of Astrology (Uranus), and then in light of Mercury retrograde and several eclipses activating SA-UR in 2022. I consider how to best use this energy throughout the year, and specifically with the current 3-week Mercury Rx.

Happy New Year!
 
We are so excited to be here with you in 2022. We have a wonderful group of people for our upcoming astrology course, both live and recorded, and we would love for you to join us! Early bird ends in one week, on Wednesday, January 19th. Our class meets on Sundays from 1-4PM ET for 10 weeks, from February 6th through April 10th. You can find all the details right here.

In this course, we will trace the human relationship with the starry sky from its earliest origins in the recognition of solar and lunar cycles and their relationship to light, heat, and tides, through the sacred geometric stone circles of megalithic culture, to the birth of astrology proper with the Mesopotamian zodiac and Egyptian decans. When Alexander the Great unified these two regions with parts of Europe in the west and India in the east, the great cultural synthesis that ensued gave birth to Hellenistic astrology and the four pillars of our practice to this day: planets, aspects, signs, and houses. The Middle Ages saw the cultural center shift from Alexandria to Baghdad, where astrology flourished and evolved in the Islamic Empire before being retransmitted to the West during the Renaissance, dying a second death during the Enlightenment, and being born again through Theosophy and the New Age.

I would be honored to be your guide on this remarkable adventure through time, where we will not only study but imagine and experience what it was like for our ancestors to become conscious of their embeddedness in the universe. For the history of astrology is the story of humanity awakening to its place in the cosmos and thereby navigating its relationship to the divine. That story continues with us today, as part of an unbroken lineage stretching back to the earliest of our species, able to be animated once again, in always deepening communion of above and below.

Wishing you a bright and bountiful year ahead,

With all our blessings and love,
Jessica and Travis DiRuzza
