It’s The New Moon in Cancer!

Today is July 18th and tonight into tomorrow morning, depending on where in the world you happen to be, it’s time to welcome the new moon in the sign of Cancer.  The new moon is a time for new beginnings.  It’s a time to revitalize things that we have been working on but also a time to go inward and find what we need in order to create loving and nurturing environments for the future.  With this new moon being in Cancer we find that the big themes these all tend to be wrapped up in having to do with family, and most specifically, mothers.

Cancer is a water sign that is ruled by the moon, so when we see the moon enter Cancer it tends to have a little bit of an added punch. Cancer is often connected to mothers and children, affairs of the heart, especially at home, and looking for ways to connect more deeply with those we are close to.

And while not everyone might be interested in spending this time looking for ways to reconnect with their mother in the traditional sense, use this as a time to also examine your connection to the Divine Mother, the Divine Feminine, and seek ways to make your relationships with the Divine Family stronger.

During the Cancer new moon, you may find that you’re feeling your emotions running particularly high with family.  If you are especially empathic you may find that these emotions are less yourself and more those of the people around you.  Be sure to give yourself time to separate from those situations and be still.  Make sure that your emotions are truly your own.

Jess is a great teacher, as well as an insightful reading and a wonderful healer. Her lessons are informative and easy to understand. Her cards speak to her in a way that I hope mine will to me one day. I have also had a Chakra session and a Reiki session with her and afterward I felt at peace, balanced, and whole again (I was quite sick at the time). I trust very few people, and I follow my path alone, but I trust Jess. She’s a beautiful spirit.

When I started coaching with Jess I thought I was coming to her for help with a breakup and an unexpected and sudden international move. It turned out that wasn't the real issue at all! Jess asked questions I never would have thought to ask myself and gave me a whole new perspective on what was going on in my life. She made me feel like what I want matters. By the time we were done I felt like I could take on the world!

OMG I'm blown away by the accuracy of the reading. Jess has a special gift. What she revealed to me, opened me up to a place I knew I should be at but was holding myself back from.

I was so overwhelmed trying to get back into my witchcraft practice, but Jess helped me create an actual plan and a schedule for doing the work. The results in just two months has been far beyond my expectations. I'm in touch with my power like never before!
