I am proud to share this music-dance-poetry-art video that Travis created, featuring Soleil Chappelle, Brendan 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.
Teaching is one of my greatest joys and honor in this life. My students enliven a place in my soul through our powerful and sacred work together. I am very excited to announce and share with you my greatest contribution to astrology and the astrological worldview thus far! Deepen Your Astrological Practice is my new online astrology course which you can begin right now at trustpsyche.com. Here is a section from the course on the archetypal combination of Moon and Pluto. Watch until the end to see the amazing dancer Soleil Chappelle and musician/producer Travis DiRuzza in their artistic creation for Moon-Pluto.
The trustpsyche team would love for you to join this transformative journey into the depths of the archetypal realm—a journey guided by the 45 planetary combinations. Each planetary pair, from the archetypal meaning of the Sun and the Moon out to Neptune and Pluto, is covered in depth in this 60+ hour course. Original music, dance, art, poetry, guided meditations, experiential exercises, and so much more are combined together for each archetypal pair for an embodied, grounded, and intuitive approach to the archetypes and the planets in aspect.
Stream 8 covers personal transits in astrology, part of the supporting material from trustpsyche’s online astrology course, Deepen Your Astrological Practice, which you can begin now at trustpsyche.com. A step by step process on how to follow your personal transits or those of clients.
You come to me from all around the world. We enter into this sacred contract as teacher and student. Together, we grow, learn, and transform. I am overcome with Joy at the opportunity to be your teacher and work together in these ways. My thanks is in my Voice, my gestures, my tears.
As I recorded the introduction video to Deepen Your Astrological Practice earlier this week, I realized some important things. My silence as a teacher over the past two and half years has been gestating something deep and new. I had intuited what it may be, but it was not until I spoke I felt the Beauty and Truth of what was coming through me. It is also very clear to me that this channeling of this astrological awareness is not possible without you. You call me forward and help pull through me what needs to emerge.
As your teacher, I am forever grateful to be able to serve you in these ways. Use me. Take me all the way. I am yours. Set your clear intentions and I am here to meet you in the middle.
There is one spot left for the live version of Deepen Your Astrological Practice. I can feel that it wants to be taken by someone. If this someone is you please write to Travis at TravisDiRuzza@gmail.com to join before we begin this Sunday, September 23rd, 2018.
Deepen Your Astrological Practice begins in just a few weeks on Sunday, September 23rd, online. The course is almost full with four spaces remaining for the live class. A generous donation was given to the course, and I am now offering two partial scholarships to those who want to attend live and need financial assistance. If you or someone you know would like one of these partial scholarships please email Travis at TravisDiRuzza@gmail.com. The scholarships will be given out on a first come first serve basis.
I am blown away by what has been created for this course by the dozen plus other astrologers and artists with whom I have collaborated. Original works of art, dance, music, and meditations have come pouring through so many gifted humans. The astrological insights for this course are currently flooding my consciousness as well. I love teaching and it is an honor to be back in the cosmic saddle.
My clear intention with this course is to support and guide each person to have their unique relationship with the planetary archetypes. What is most important to me is for each person to find and strengthen their voice and channel of these powerful, creative, and divine energies. My speciality is seeing you and helping you open more fully to what wants to manifest. Please come and share this time and space with me if this calls to you. I welcome all walks of life, from all parts of the world, and from all spiritual backgrounds.
I am so excited to be teaching again. We have a fantastic group of people for the course. I would love for you to join us for the livestream this Equinox or at your own pace anytime after. The video and audio will become available within 24 hours of each class recording. If you have any questions at all, please contact the sweet and kind Travis at firstname.lastname@example.org. Register by August 1st for pre-order discounts.
