New Moons are always a time of release and entering into the unknown. It is the Dark Phase. We are asked to let go of what no longer serves us so that we can be free to embrace what will soon emerge out of the darkness – the new. It is the Incubation Phase. Seeds planted now will grow with the budding Moon nurtured by her increasing light. The days preceding the New Moon are the Shedding and the week following is the Creative Building. The days before the New Moon are an optimal time to clear your space ~ physically, mentally, and emotionally. Honor, what has come and perhaps gone, give thanks for the gift of yet another completion of a cycle of Creation, Regeneration, and Renewal, and come prepared with your offering of Presence. We are at the gates and once stepped through, New Light will begin to dawn. The essence of the Virgo New Moon calls us to be present with the Body as one of the greatest resources we each have to… Continue reading
What People Are Saying About The “SOUL MAP ~ BIRTHDAY BOOK”
Kaypacha Lescher ~ I have been a student of astrology for over 40 years. During that time, I have read countless interpretations of my chart by a countless number of astrologers. Bearing that in mind, I am absolutely blown away by not only the interpretations, but the wisdom teachings shared, new insights, and most importantly, aspects of myself to both consciously work on AND be proud of, all shared with gentleness and deep understanding. The “Personal Symbols” section of my book held an immense amount of value but my “Soul Story” took me to a whole new level of awareness! How Jessica explained the evolutionary intention of my soul was both profound and exquisite. This is by far the most personal and revealing interpretation of my chart, written clearly so that I can return to it again and again and still find new aspects of myself each time that all I can say is thank you!
Christine O’Connor ~ Jessica’s “Soul Map” is both a comprehensive but succinct tutorial on astrology in general as well as a specific guide for a particular birth chart. I consult mine regularly in a spiritual practice of learning to trust and to live with faith. The ancient Delphic oracle prescribed “Know Thyself” – astrology offers us a way to do this and Jessica’s “Soul Map” is a powerful tool.

5 out of 5 stars Apr 11, 2017 (on Etsy Store)
I purchased this book as a gift to my nephew not knowing quite what to expect. My book arrived yesterday, and I was blown away. You can see the time, effort, energy and love that was poured into this project. I was so impressed that I look forward to giving these books as birthday gifts. Just make sure you put in your request in plenty of time as this is not a quick turnaround. Well Worth the Wait!!
This weekends Scorpio Moon is sure to surface some deep emotions, especially with the Sun coming into the last, very potent, emotional degrees of Cancer through Saturday. For many, this current Eclipse Season is proving to be the most intense transition we have experienced. With Mars Retrograde on the South Node of the Moon, “Karma” is setting the tone and speaking loud and clear these days that “dealing with our past so that we can move forward is absolutely necessary.”
Mars is the planet of “action & energy,” and when in retrograde (especially when it’s hand in hand with all the skeletons in our closets of the past) we can feel TIERD, set-back, and possible physical issues flaring up. The energies are high and many people are having difficulty sleeping and overwhelmed with the “to do” list each day.
As with all things – “This Too Shall Pass.” The Sun moves out of Cancer and into Leo this Sunday, ushering in a fiery, playful energy to enliven the body and lift the spirit. Let it in. Next week as we build into the coming Full Moon Eclipse, Venus and Neptune will come into opposition, offering us an opportunity to tap into a higher vision of what is possible and what is necessary to ground it into reality. Now is not the time to take on more than you can handle! Take it easy, and honor and support yourself through this hugely transitional time.
By the end of August, we will have all gone through a transformation of a lifetime and for many, the “Story” of our lives will be rewritten.

Moon moves out of the Watery – Cancer New Moon Eclipse energies today and into the Fiery, Playful sign of Leo. It will come as a welcomed relief from the past few weeks building intensities! Leo says, “Take charge somewhere in your life that wants your attention and have fun while doing it!”
This current Eclipse New Moon time is ripe for planting your seed intentions. The light of the Moon will soon begin to grow and take our Dreams waxing with it into the Manifestation Phase with the next Full Moon Eclipse (on July 27th.)
We’re also still in the powerful Earth – Grand Trine aspect between Venus, Uranus, and Saturn. This is a transit that holds the potential to assist in grounding in some necessary, positive, CHANGES & powerful Shifts in your life.
Think of ways to get CREATIVELY ORGANIZED this weekend and harness the power of the Eclipse Gateway.
By the end of the weekend, the Moon will move into the light of Virgo, calling us in to FOCUS our energies where it is most effective and come more deliberate in what it is we wish to create and live. The beginning of the week will offer us a few days to “clear space” personally. Virgo is at its best when it is nurturing, purifying, and creating a state of inner well-being.
