New Moon in Gemini Reading

Okay folks–I’ve been having all the feels lately, and I have the sneaking suspicion that the new moon in Gemini is to blame.

 

This particular phase in this particular sign with its particular astrology is said to unearth some potentially painful emotions–a total “three of swords” vibe. Yet, there seems to be some cataclysmic shift at the center of it, inspiring a cathartic release that may finally unite the head and the heart.

In other words, this is a perfect time to sit down with a cup of tea, a notebook, and an expansively open mind and get real about what it is that you truly want.

 

I’m not talking about what you’re brain wants, but your personality resists. I’m not talking about what your fear wants or your pride wants or your insecurity wants. I’m taking about you–the purest, most unadulterated part of you. Inner child meets High Priestess meets vagabond meets fucking feminist. It’s time to close the gap between who you are and who you want to be.

How do you close that gap this month? By reaching out–by joining hands with a trusted friend who can help ferry you across. We’ve all heard the axioms “it takes a village” and “no man is an island,” but how often do we truly allow ourselves to accept support and care from others? How often do we offer it? Do we mistakenly think that alliances will lead us further from our truth when in reality they may just lead us closer to it?

Only time and experimentation will tell. With that (and with a full video reading), I leave you to discover it and manifest it.

Much Love,

Jessi

A Hot Mess Meets Paper Planning: A Candid Photo Journey

It’s the new moon in Virgo, and I’m on a serious mission to streamline my life. Never the most organized soul, I’ve spent the better part of two decades struggling to file forms and meet deadlines while day planners and file folders lay neglected in the corner, collecting dust. The witchy community made me hip to the glorious world of paper planning, and I’ve thrown myself headlong into the pursuit of productive, well-managed time usage (well…to paraphrase comic John Mulaney: “I’m just a thirty-one year old woman doing her best).

 

Like anything else, this endeavor’s been a process. I’m about to outline this process (lucky you, right?) to give you a glimpse into what this madness has been like. I wish you success on your own “get my shit together journey”, and if you haven’t yet started, I hope this (uncomfortably) candid account will give you the courage to go for it!

Step One: Buy A Planner (In June).

Step Two: Charge the Planner With Your Favorite Crystal (because your track record necessitates that you roll out whatever woo you have at your disposal to make this shit come to fruition).

Step Three: Begin.

Step Nine: Get All Political and Heated About the Cost of Living in the United States in 2016 (you can use your imaginations for this one).

Step 10: Entertain the Sacrifices You Can Make In Order to Beef Up Your Nest Egg.

Step Ten: Decide that There is No Force on God’s Green Earth That Can Make You Give Up Chocolate.

Step Eleven: Go Eat Some Chocolate.

Step Twelve: Realize That You’ve Got This On Lock.

Step Thirteen: Rejoice.
