I live streamed this 25-minute video for you on my YouTube channel. I hope you get something useful out of what I shared. All blessings this Eclipse Season!
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.

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 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.

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,
Jessica DiRuzza, MFT
