I very much enjoyed creating this live stream on my YouTube channel for all of you. In this half hour, I discuss some of my thoughts on Mercury-Neptune alignments. The quote I begin this video with is from Carl Jung, which you can read below. I want to thank each of you for taking the time to listen and participate in my work – truly a gift to me.

Our psyche is set up in accord with the structure of the Universe, what happens in the macrocosm likewise happens in the infinitesimal and most subjective reaches of the psyche.

-Carl Jung from Memories, Dreams, Reflections

Astrology is a love language shared with the Divine that is spoken in countless and evolving ways. The conversation is rooted in ancient living symbols that manifest as archetypes, deities, psychological concepts, emotions, physical energies, stories, mythologies, and symptoms of the mind, body, and spirit. By deeply exploring and bringing our own creative voices to the 45 planetary combinations or pairs—from the Sun and Moon out to Neptune and Pluto—we enhance our communication and communion with Cosmos. Each planetary pair is a relationship—a dynamic marriage of sacred principles that contains multitudes. Before we even consider aspect, sign, or house, a single combination already has endless stories to tell, coming to life through the artist, poet, painter, or musician. We all contribute to the ongoing articulation of these divine energies, and to their constant evolution in light of our constantly evolving world. Each of us is here to help pen the cosmos in our unique way and thus contribute to a truly interdisciplinary and integral astrology. Jessica takes three different planetary pairs (Mercury-Pluto, Sun-Neptune, Saturn-Uranus) and demonstrates some of the myriad ways to speak and live with them in an embodied, impassioned, and psychological manner.

Thank you to the Baltimore Astrological Society and Tess Barr for inviting me to speak! I had such a lovely, connected, and inspiring time.

In Episode 26 of Trust Psyche Podcast, Jessica DiRuzza, MFT has a conversation with James Socci. The two dialogue and question the story and meaning of Chiron, The Wounded Healer; themes of suffering, pain, and loss; what healing looks like; how User Experience applies to re-branding Trust Psyche; and their long-time friendship.

Check out the incredible work of James Socci, the mastermind behind our rebranding campaign:

I am a user researcher and facilitator for Amplified by Design. I collaborate with teams to help them better understand their customers’ needs and implement data-insights to create and improve services, products, and systems.

Additionally, I facilitate workshops and rituals, providing a structure to meaningfully experience some of the big stuff of life and to connect and play with what it means to be a human. I have been facilitating group work for over 14 years and believe in the power of intentional space for discovery, expression, connection, and creativity. I’ve lived many lives. Previously I was a bartender working under one of the most respected authors and bartenders in the spirits world, Jeffery Morgenthaler, and a finalist in one of the most prestigious cocktail competitions in the U.S., Bombay Sapphire’s Most Imaginative Bartender Competition. Before that, I worked at Esalen Institute as the executive assistant to the CEO and helped found the Integral Leadership Program.

Hi Everyone,

I want to thank Contessa Magdalena for inviting me to speak. I LOVE speaking engagements and the opportunity to share my most fresh understandings of astrology and my love of our Cosmos. Please come! Flyer below with all the details.

Dear Students,

I am back and I want to invite you to study with me! I am oh so very ready to teach one of my all-time favorite subjects – TRANSIT ASTROLOGY: The Art of Living. An 8-week online astrology course with yours truly. You can find out all the information right here and register today for an early bird discount. Plus, all trustpsyche students receive an extra 10% off this course (and all trustpsyche courses). I truly hope you will join me this spring for what will be a ton of fun!

Transit Astrology is the core of my archetypal astrological practice, for it is the sacred conversation with the Divine. I can think of no other place in my life that I have learned more about myself and the Universe than in my daily transit practice, meaning, that for over the past 13 years now, I have studied my personal transits and tracked them over the course of my entire life – from my birth to 100 years old. What does this do for me? It allows me to better understand and integrate my past, be more present and discerning in this moment, and enhances my ability to intuit and to navigate my future. The Universe has a way of seeing us even when we are not looking, but in my experience, it has even more of a way of looking at us as we look back. Transit astrology is one of the main ways I look back to the Universe and have a meaningful, creative, and fun conversation, often experienced as an intricate and elaborate dance.

Transit Astrology is a sacred practice because it shows me the unfolding of my psyche/birth chart through time over the course of my entire life. I have come to understand the archetypal dynamics that make up my personality, karma/dharma, and my life much more clearly through tracking my personal transits. This spiritual practice deepens my relationship to my higher self, to the Cosmos, and to our World and all those in it.

I have used this technique with thousands of clients and students. What I love about this method of transit astrology is how accurate the timing of transits has been for both me and my clients and the clarity we get from being with this practice.

So, if you are interested in learning to practice archetypal astrology the way that I practice it – you have loved a reading from me, being a student of mine, or my YouTube videos – you will love this online astrology course with me.

I invite you to join in this sacred conversation and be a part of our growing trustpsyche community. There are so many caring, wise, and imaginative beings here with us. I would love for you to be one of them and share space and time with all of us.

Thank you and with gratitude,

Thank you for an incredible year with trustpsyche. I am so grateful for you in my life – whether as a client, a student, a family member, or friend. Travis’ and my life is so rich and full because of your presence and participation in our co-creations with one another. We know how challenging 2020 has been, and we want to say you made it, we made it! This is no small feat. We hope you take some time this Holiday season to celebrate all the good stuff, all the hard stuff, and see how often they can be one in the same.

We cannot wait to be with you in 2021. There is so much to look forward to that will be happening with trustpsyche. New online astrology courses, new podcast episodes, new astrology videos, and really cool collaborations with other organizations and wonderful people. We are growing and expanding beautifully, thanks to you. I think this will be our best year yet!

May you always know you are loved.

Jessica, Travis, and the trustpsyche team

p.s. in case you missed the latest episode of Stream Podcast on the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn, here it is!

Hello Everyone! I am proud to share with you my daughter, Luce Sophia DiRuzza. Luce was born in October as a Libra. As you can imagine, she has quite the powerful birth chart and quite the powerful entry into this world. She is fiercely sweet, loves music and dancing, has a wonderful sense of adventure, and loves to express herself—fully.  We are all doing very well and loving our time together as a new family.

In light of this Solstice, which was Saint Lucie’s Day before the calendrical reform (now it is on December 13th), and this incredible alignment of Jupiter and Saturn as the Star of Bethlehem, I want to release my podcast episode 23 of Stream—The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn: Joy and Sorrow.

This Stream is a real gem. Luce was inside of me when I shared my insights on this planetary alignment. She of course is born with the great conjunction, and I have the square natally. I think that with our combined energies—Luce, me, and the Cosmos—we were able to channel something precious.

So in honor of this Great Conjunction, the Solstice, and Luce, I share with you Stream 23.

I hope you enjoy listening.  I look forward to being with you in the New Year for New Beginnings. Luce has given me so much and there is so much to say.

Blessings of light to you.

You can listen now to Stream: trustpsyche podcast on iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay, & Podbean.
