Brene Brown nailed it once again with her podcast, Unlocking Us, as she interviewed The Gottmans’ from the Gottman Institute.

The Gottmans’ were foundational in my graduate studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute for Depth Psychology.

I love their brilliant work and apply their methods for both my work with clients and for my marriage with Travis.

With Mars square Venus in the sky right now, we can all benefit from giving energy to our relationships.

**TODAY is the last day for EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT for Transit Astrology: The Art of Living. We begin on Sundays from 1-3:30PM Eastern Time for 8 weeks online, April 11th – May 30th.

REGISTER TODAY FOR MY UPCOMING ASTROLOGY CLASS! LIVE or RECORDED – EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT until FEB. 24th!

One thing I love about teaching is connecting with people from all around the world. I work with a diverse group of people from all walks of life. This greatly enriches me and the other students as they get to know one another and form a global community. I have students in Brazil, Mexico, Costa Rica, Columbia, Argentina, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, South Africa, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Britain, Scotland, Ireland, Sweden, Germany, Poland, and all across the United States. Wow, am I lucky.  

During challenging times such as these, coming together in community for our shared love and passion for astrology and what it shows us about the Cosmos, is one way to fortify our spirits and find solidarity with like-minded people. I would love for you to be one of those people.

These photos are from one of my favorite astrology teaching trips to China! I hope to come to your country after the pandemic. I would love to be with you in person someday soon.

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! (You can also register now to receive the early bird discount for the pre-recorded version of the course which will be released in June).

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

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!

My favorite human just released his cover album, TAKE COVER! I would love for you to listen right here and soak up all the magic of Travis DiRuzza. Travis very much channels his natal Venus opposite Uranus, in a Yod with Neptune and Pluto.

Message from Travis:

I am excited to release Take Cover, an album of cover songs I performed, recorded, and produced myself on guitar and voice. Please have a listen on my website here and have a look around the site while you’re there—I’ve added many of the albums I’ve recorded on (more still being added!)

Jessica and I are expecting our daughter at the beginning of November, and with all the Covid curtailments, this incubation period has been especially creative and productive for us. After completing my PhD in philosophy and religion this year, I’ve had more time to return to music. Take Cover started out as a demo project to get some gigs in bars and restaurants on our little beach island. I’ve always been a bass player and honestly, have always been self-conscious about my singing voice, so this guitar and vocals project has been a humbling growth experience for me, plus all I’ve learned about recording and production along the way. I gathered my favorite songs over the years, ones that I love to play, that touch my heart, and are suited to my voice. The title of the album (besides referring to musical “takes” and the cover tunes) reflects the turbulent times we’re living in, especially the first and last tracks. But it also refers to the warm shelter we can offer one another during such times. Ever notice how almost every song ever is a love song, whether jubilant or broken?

Stay tuned for two more albums I am releasing in the coming months, The Wicked Wonder for jazz sextet and narration, and Perichoresis which brings together music, dance, visual art, and poetry. Hit the “follow” button on the bottom of my website to stay abreast of all my creations.

Lastly, I want to mention trustpsyche school, Jessica and my educational initiative for astrology, psychology, and philosophy. We’ve been busy teaching online classes, webinars, and events, and recently celebrated over 100 students worldwide. We’re offering three new courses in 2021 and look forward to hosting in-person retreats in the future.

With love,

Travis

The Great Conjunction is the coming together of two old friends – Jupiter and Saturn. This planetary alignment occurs once every 20 years. Right now, as you look to the southeast after sunset in the northern hemisphere, you will see these two magnificent celestial bodies, known as the Star of Bethlehem. We have cherished our time in viewing these two old friends in the night sky, night after night, here on our little island of Siesta Key in the Gulf of Mexico. Jupiter and Saturn will be visible to us in their conjunction until April of 2021 (began January 2020). This episode of Stream shares our understanding of Jupiter and Saturn. We hope you enjoy, old friend.

All our love and blessings from our family to yours,

Here is a 4-minute video to invite you to join me for a free astrology webinar for all trustpsyche students.

I would love to see you on Friday, August 14th at 1PM ET / 10AM PT for a 90-minute live Q&A on Zoom for all trustpsyche students. My intention in offering this astrology webinar is to bring together all trustpsyche students around the world to share sacred space while having meaningful and enriching dialogue with one another. Whether you have taken Initiation to Archetypal Astrology, Deepen Your Astrological Practice, Embodying Astrology, or Astrological Counseling I would love to see you there on the 14th. We are celebrating over 100 students worldwide! RSVP to receive the link at trustpsyche.com/events or on the trustpsyche home page.

This time will be fully dedicated to answering your questions. I will not prepare any material to teach. Please refrain from asking personal questions about your birth chart. Instead, reframe the question so that everyone may benefit from hearing the answer. For example, if you are curious about what your natal grand cross means, ask the question like this, “if someone has a grand cross in their birth chart, how do we interpret that?” I always like to ask my questions in a way that both benefits my learning and curiosity, as well as that of everyone else listening.

In 2021, trustpsyche will offer three new online astrology courses for all levels. Personal Transits in Astrology, Aspects in Astrology, and The Astronomy and Cultural History of Astrology. 

Now is a good time to begin studying with me if you have been considering taking astrology classes. The two courses available right now are Initiation to Archetypal Astrology and Deepen Your Astrological Practice. I recommend beginning with IAA and then doing DYAP. Together the two create a very strong foundation for all levels of astrologer learners and practitioners. These two courses are designed for spiritual seekers, personal development, therapists, coaches, healers, yoga instructors, and anyone wanting to bring astrology more fully into their personal and professional lives.

I would also love to stay connected with you more frequently on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube where I post weekly on archetypal astrology & depth psychology.

Lastly, here is my monthly Stream Podcast: Archetypal Astrology & Depth Psychology where I host a variety of guests and have awesome conversations.

It is such an honor to be your teacher and to have the opportunity to share and create this body of knowledge and wisdom with you. If you cannot make the live webinar, it will be recorded for you to access later. You still need to sign-up at trustpsyche.com/events.   I very much look forward to our special time together. I love teaching and it is pure joy for me to get to be with each of you.

To all my students around the world, I want to see you and spend time together. Whether we have worked with one another in person or online, I invite YOU to this free webinar, exclusively for trustpsyche students, for you to ask all the questions you have been holding. The live Q&A will be hosted on Zoom on Friday, August 14th at 1PM ET (10AM PT) for approximately 90 minutes. RSVP to receive the link at trustpsyche.com/events or on the home page.

Dearest Ladies and Gentlemen, Trans Folk, and Humans of all Kind(s),

My magnificent husband— the remarkably intelligent, outstandingly wise, and now scholar of western history and philosophy, Travis DiRuzza, will defend his dissertation on Friday, December 6th at 2PM Eastern Time (11AM Pacific). We cordially invite you to come join in on the fun and celebrations of a 25+ year journey of education! Travis will present for approximately forty minutes followed by questions from his committee and you — the public. All are welcome, so please invite your friends! The more the merrier!!

Join us on Zoom here: https://zoom.us/j/378876755

How does the world relate to the divine? Plato proposes the doctrine of participation to describe this complex relationship in which divinity is both a part of the world and yet apart from it. Participation gives rise to philosophical problems and enigmas that are only fully resolved in the course of a 1200-year evolution culminating in the work of Maximus the Confessor. Travis will trace this history of ideas and then explore how the participatory relationship with the divine may serve as a template for our relationships with each other.

I also hear there will be a fascinating and original discussion of participation, archetypes, and astrology in this defense. Travis’ dissertation already has raving reviews. See you there~!

In Joyful Celebration,

Jessica and Travis DiRuzza
