Venus is the Goddess of Love and Beauty. She is in rare and powerful alignments now through the rest of 2018. On this episode of Correlations, Matthew Stelzner and Jessica DiRuzza have a heartfelt discussion about how to make the most of Venus through her phases in love, relationship, art, music, and dance. The Goddess herself is going through powerful transformations in the ascension process, and making herself available in new ways for us all to engage in.

~Truth, Beauty, Love.~

Music by the lovely Travis DiRuzza.

Please join Matthew Stelzner and myself for Part II of a discussion on the current outer planetary alignment of Saturn and Pluto in conjunction from 2018-2021. The significance of this time period is felt by so many as we come to the final years of the Uranus-Pluto square from 2007-2020. Saturn and Pluto are making their first conjunction since 1981-84. On this episode of Correlations, we further​ dialogue about the wide range of experiences one may have during this powerful alignment and offer alternative perspectives and thought forms on how to live with these energies in an empowering way.

Life is made of patterns and cycles. They are all around us. We find ourselves, once more, in similar situations and experiences throughout our various relationships—those moments and people we encounter in life again and again. Astrology is a map of the cycles of the planets in connection to the patterns in human life. The patterns we repeat in love can be seen in the birth charts of our lovers and partners, a karmic trail running through our key relationships for us to discover. Identifying these repeating archetypal themes gives us the chance to grow our awareness and practice new ways of facing old patterns. The way through is not to escape the repeating patterns, but to find new meaningful responses to them that are more freeing than before. What repeating patterns in love and relationship might you be working with in this life?

Sung to you by the lovely Travis DiRuzza.

How we see our lives has so much to do with the way we interpret and make meaning of what is occurring. How do we get beyond the general symbols of astrology, to connect with the unrepeatable particularities of a person’ life? In the fourth Stream, Systems View of Astrology, I consider how much more there is to astrological interpretation than the symbols themselves—for they are just one small part of each of our unique stories. Beneath the repeating planetary patterns lie singular lives that transcend and will never be fully explained by those patterns.

In this Stream, I also share how when we go through a psycho-spiritual death and rebirth in life, our chart does too. The way we participate with and experience the planetary archetypes also dies and is reborn. New levels of meaning, and therefore possibility, are created. We evolve, as do the archetypes. This is the essence of relationship and participation: Both entities are changed.

In the third Stream, Family Systems and Astrology, I further explore family patterns revealed in the astrological charts of whole families as a continuation from Stream 2. Over the last decade as a counseling astrologer, I have collected research from thousands of charts and looked at the data through the lens of depth psychology. I share here the variety of ways archetypal signatures may show up within our family lineage. Discovering our own family archetypal signatures can help us see clearly the karmic batons we carry forward in our own lives, both in the archetypal complexes shared and the structural poetics in which the complexes are patterned.

Welcome to Stream. This new forum is dedicated to sharing my stream of consciousness in the realms of astrology and psychology, and to exploring how we live the most meaningful lives we can with the little time we have here.

In the second Stream, Family Patterns in Astrology, I share my thoughts on transgenerational aspect patterns. Encoded in our birth charts like DNA are planetary aspects we inherited from our parents. The genetics of astrology, seen in transgenerational aspect patterns passed from one generation to the next, allow us to trace our karmic lineages and understand the purpose of the gifts and challenges received from our ancestors. Astrology permits conscious evolution of the karmic torches we bear by illuminating where we incarnate in the chain of the unfolding Great Story.

Welcome to Stream. This new forum is dedicated to sharing my stream of consciousness as a Sun-Mercury-Neptune triple conjunction in Capricorn woman. Each Stream will come in free flow form as I am moved by Spirit to speak. A movement similar to the great woman dancer, Isadora Duncan, who would wait to move her body until she felt the presence of the sacred that guided her movement.

In the first Stream, The World, I share my thoughts on birth charts and death charts. I ask us to think critically and carefully about what “the world” means and what we mean when we ask the question that is perhaps asked more than any other, “what does this mean”? I also challenge the modern apocalyptic vision that is so often proclaimed with such authority.

The image of “The World” for this Stream comes from the new Tarot deck by Paulina Cassidy.

Within the current Mercury retrograde (a time to be with life, to review, revisit, and sit in contemplation) in Aries (fire, new beginnings, flaring forth) along with Venus (love, relationships, beauty, and creativity) and Uranus (freedom, liberation, innovation, exploration, trickster, travel, adventure,  and chaos) in conjunction, I am re-releasing this episode of Correlations Podcast, diving into the magic of synastry.

In this episode, under the large Pisces Stellium (the waters of the collective dream, the end of the zodiacal cycle, and states of intuition and reverie), ​Matthew Stelzner and Jessica DiRuzza enter into a healing reverie state. Playing with the present archetypal energies, a space is opened for an adventure in consciousness. Discussion of synastry (two birth charts put together) and the necessity and magic of this form of correspondence is opened up.
