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.
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.
You can listen now to Stream: trustpsyche podcast on iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay, & Podbean.
Jessica DiRuzza and Christina Hardy have a rich conversation on the Saturn-Uranus cycle of time and how it relates to our current moment (closing song: Travis DiRuzza plays Don’t Stop by Fleetwood Mac).
Christina has been a practicing astrologer for 17 years. After receiving her Masters in Transpersonal Psychology at John F. Kennedy University, she studied archetypal astrology for 5 years at the California Institute of Integral Studies with Rick Tarnas. She then expanded her practice by studying evolutionary astrology under Kim Marie Weimer and became certified in June 2019.
Christina previously worked as a Director of Career & Academic Advising at Youngstown State University in Ohio. She combines her astrological knowledge with her 15 years’ experience helping people find careers that nourish their soul while meeting their practical needs.
She is also a certified Deep Memory Process practitioner (taught by Patricia Walsh) and offers past-life hypnotherapy as a tool for understanding and healing one’s present life issues. She draws upon all these traditions to illumine the evolutionary intent of the soul, helping her clients navigate life’s challenges.
You can find more information about Christina at her website www.transpersonalservices.com. You will also find YouTube presentations describing the philosophy of evolutionary astrology as well as information about her upcoming courses in September 2020.
*For those of you who would like to learn Evolutionary Astrology, I highly recommend you study with Christina. She has an upcoming online EA course for beginners. Go to her website, transpersonalservices, to find out more information and to register for the upcoming September 2020 online course.
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,
