Travis DiRuzza discusses the evolution of philosophical theories of time and their relevance for astrology, as well as the role of narrative in identity creation through time. Our assumptions about time are the premises underlying our astrology and affect how we practice. Living in a time-directional cosmos has implications for our self-understanding and how we hold our suffering. Other considerations include philosophy of astrology, self-transformation through the storytelling of our lives, ethics, and death, as well as pizza, cities, melodies, Zeno, Boo Radley, Tarot, and more, with applications to chart-reading and life-living. Concluding with a song recorded specially for this occasion.

Thank you to everyone who came to our livestream this past Sunday. We really love getting to spend some our Sunday with you. See you all next month on Sunday, July 7th for our next event! You can register now here to watch live through Zoom and ask questions and share.

Cheers!

Signup for the Zoom link a trustpsyche.com/livestream. Bring your lovely selves, your comments, and questions.

Watch this phenomenal piece of astrology art!

I am proud to share this music-dance-poetry-art video that Travis created, featuring Soleil ChappelleBrendan Smith, and Tara Swasti. Travis put together 45 of these videos as part of our online course: Deepen Your Astrological Practice (begin now at trustpsyche.com/#deepen). There is one video for each pair of planets: this one is Mercury-Saturn. We’d love to hear your reactions!

Today VENUS-URANUS conjunction + MERCURY-SATURN trine: an original dance-music-poetry-art video from the astrology course, Deepen Your Astrological Practice, which illustrates Mercury-Saturn in the context of meditations on death. I don’t believe astrology can predict the moment of death (hear from Jessica on this topic in Stream 1). Though Saturn is its symbol, death has less to do with the cosmic archetypes, and more to do with a person’s unique and particular historical existence, here in the realm where mortality has the last word. Death is our inescapable fate, and though our soul lives on, this incarnation only happens once. Our time here is finite, which demands that we honor time as a sacred resource, both for ourselves and for others. For even more poignant than our own death (after which we will have passed into the expansiveness of the life between lives), is the death of others (for which we remain painfully present). Their preciousness in light of their impermanence encourages our right action toward them, illuminating the Saturnian connections between manifestation, time, death, and ethics.

Thank you to the 60+ people who attended the livestream this past Sunday. It is an honor to stand in the fire with each of you.

We look forward to being with you the first Sunday of June the 2nd at 2PM EST for Travis DiRuzza’s talk on the Transformations of Time. A continuation of the Saturn-Pluto talk of this month. To join LIVE you will need to register at www.trustpsyche.com/livestream.

**Please note, we will no longer be streaming LIVE on Facebook or YouTube. However, the video will be posted the following Tuesday on all social media platforms for you to view if you cannot join LIVE.

I am speaking this Sunday, May 5th, at 2PM EST for a free livestream through trustpsyche. I would love to see you there.

You are each invited to my livestream talk on May 5th at 2PM Eastern Time where I will discuss how I understand the current planetary alignments of our time. For those who have seen my Saturn-Neptune talk given at Esalen in 2014, this Saturn-Pluto talk will be of a comparable level of interpretation. 

All are welcome. To watch live you can join in at trustpsyche on FB // trustpsyche YouTube channel // or to ask questions via Zoom, signup attrustpsyche.com/livestream.

Hello Everybody,

Happy Equinox. Trustpsyche is proud to announce that we have grown into an online astrology school. We are honored to present our first partnership with longtime astrologer and tarot practitioner, Matthew Stelzner, from Stelz.biz for his new 8-week online class, Tarot and Flow: Integrating Tarot with Astrology. Trustpsyche will be hosting the class which begins on April 1st.

To receive more information and three amazing free videos on how to integrate tarot into your astrological practice, click here and enter your email address. Even if you do not take the class, the three videos will teach you step-by-step how to have a daily tarot practice that really works, and integrate it into whatever level of astrology you already practice. I use it every day as part of my spiritual practice to receive loving guidance from my higher self and source.

Here’s that link again.

Watch this twenty-five-minute video of Matthew and myself discussing his amazing new class, Tarot and Flow. Matthew is a very gifted practitioner and teacher, and Travis and I will both be attending the full course to learn with him. We hope to see you there!

Some of you may be wondering about the online astrology course we offered last fall, Deepen Your Astrological Practice. It was a smashing success with over thirty people having already taken it. We are very excited to share that class and so much more with you in our upcoming quarterly newsletter in just a few weeks, including future trustpsyche classes and special offers for 2019. Stay tuned!

All blessings,

Jessica DiRuzza
