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.

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

I enjoyed creating this video for you on my YouTube channel. As I have mentioned before, I sometimes like to spontaneously get on my channel and do a livestream video on astrology. This time, I wanted to share how I use astrology in my life, and how I connect the planetary archetypes with the events occurring each day. Astrologers are phenomenologists, and I demonstrate this very thing right here for you.

Only one week left for the EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT for my upcoming astrology course, TRANSIT ASTROLOGY: The Art of Living. The course is usually $349, but before February 24th, it is $299. Unless you are already a Trust Psyche student, then you can get the course LIVE or RECORDED for $269.

Email for any questions you may have about this course or any other Trust Psyche courses.

I am going live at 5PM Eastern Time on the Trust Psyche YouTube channel. Join me for 30 minutes into how I use astrology in my everyday life. I will share the recorded version of this talk tomorrow.

To register for my upcoming course, TRANSIT ASTROLOGY: The Art of Living, click here. We begin April 11th – May 30th. Early bird discount until Feb. 24th! You can receive the discount for either the live class or the recorded version. If you need to miss a class or two that is okay, because the video of class will be sent out each week.

We have a fabulous group of students. Come join the adventure. I would love to be your teacher!

An Embodiment of Archetypal Astrology:

an introduction


with certified astrologer Verana Faye Bailowitz

Welcome to 2021! WOW. Wonder of Wonders.

Astrology is bursting into our collective awareness in a way it never has before.

We simply cannot deny how connected and interconnected we are and Astrology mirrors these connections every day! It feels so powerful and empowering to find ourselves held within something greater and guided by something deeply magical.

This is an extraordinary time to turn toward Astrology as a tool and lens for our healing, our wholeness, and for understanding our unique purpose at this wild and sacred time to be alive.

Please join me this February for a seven-week astrology course…

…designed for a small, intimate group, where we get to learn, integrate, heal, and explore TOGETHER.

Hi, my name is Verana and I am a certified Archetypal and Counseling Astrologer. I have been gestating this course for some time now and feel so excited to birth it at this time. This is a rare opportunity to deepen into astrological study, in a community setting.

We will embark on a journey together, with the planets, with our own unique birth charts, with each other. We begin February 11, 2021.

This course will be part teachings and part co-study. We will journey with each other into the different components of YOUR natal chart and how they weave together WITH YOU to tell the story of your unique life. We will incorporate somatic exercises to bring these archetypal energies into our bodies and get curious about how they feel within each of us. Come discover your unique embodiment of these archetypes as you begin or continue your journey of astrological exploration and study.

The first 60 minutes of each class will be spent in lecture format, followed by 30 minutes of community chart exploration. We will be using your charts to explore and uncover who we came here to be and who we authentically are. Co-exploring our souls’ journeys is my FAVORITE thing about studying astrology in a group. (With your individual consent, we will all be looking at your charts with one another and practice making meaning of the components we are studying.)

I will spend time each class offering my knowledge and understanding of the different components of the dynamic natal chart, including an introduction to the Planets, Signs, Aspects, Houses, and Transits and how to weave these together for greater depth and breadth of understanding and integration. Though all these components are important to the weaving of the whole chart, mostly we will be engaging with the planets, their archetypes, and the dynamic relationships they have with each other. REGISTER HERE!!
