When the two planets of Venus and Pluto make any major aspect in the natal chart, we can gain an intimate understanding of how Venus-Pluto natives psychologically relate to other people. By understanding the light and shadow expression of this planetary pair, we become familiar with the archetypal narrative or mythology of how a person is working with and through this energy in their life. Soul-making is that potent and magical intersection of combining the universal meaning of a planetary aspect with the unique soul expression of a human being embodying the particularities of their life’s journey. Like the yin-yang symbol, the light and shadow are both interrelated and dependent on one another for their existence, as seen in the transformative journey or story of the dance between any two archetypal qualities, in this case, Venus and Pluto. Each planetary pair is a living archetypal story, and once we know that story, we can understand where we have come from and glean insight into where we are going.

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!

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.
