This New Moon in Leo is an invitation to connect to our inner fire in a gentle way.

The lesson of Leo is not to be the biggest, baddest, most opinionated person in the room but the one who leads with the most amount of love.

Excerpt from, “RISING WOMAN”

Leo is connected to:


Leo is connected to the Strength card in traditional Tarot, where the image is of a woman taming a lion by gently holding its mouth open. She shows how to use gentleness as a way to take our animal selves.

This serves as an example to us as to how self-compassion towards ourselves and compassion, love and tolerance of others, as opposed to using aggression, anger or force, can be the most powerful process in the world.

Our True strength isn’t how tough we are. How angry we can get or how aggressive we are, but in how gently and gracefully we can treat ourselves and others.

This New Moon is also only days before a very important cosmic event. The conjunction of Mars, Rahu and Uranus. This event can bring about intensity, aggression, volatility and expected events. A lot can come up around this time both outwardly and inwardly, so we must be as gentle as possible with ourselves and others.

When we feel the fire rising and the urge to communicate from our lower selves this week, we must take a step back, connect into our hearts and remember to speak as sweetly as possible.

A New Moon brings forth an opportunity to set our intentions for the next month. We can do that using whatever rituals feel best for us. Prayer, meditation, nature time, there are many ways to honor this moon phase.

Exciting Clinic Updates!



The Garden welcomes Emely Cook, who is a student of a kinesiology modality called Emotions and Metaphysical Kinesiology.. as part of her studies, Emely is looking for practice clients to participate in a free kinesiology balance-available on select Sundays of every month.

Kinesiology is a holistic treatment modality that uses biofeedback/muscle testing via the nerve pathways and meridian systems to tap into the subconscious mind to clear stress and imbalances within the body.

Our subconscious mind is where we hold our patterns, beliefs and behaviors which runs a majority of our daily lives. When we tap into this and gently lean into the wisdom of the body we can give it space to speak. Essentially, we are shifting and clearing at a subtle energetic level to bring the body back into balance and harmony.

Kinesiology can assist in physical, mental, emotion and spiritual stresses. A few examples are:

  • Anxiety, over-thinking, worry
  • Clearing limiting beliefs
  • Self-sabotage
  • Connecting to your truth/purpose
  • Body acceptance
  • Increase self-worth, self-confidence
  • Feeling stuck
  • and much more!

Throughout the session, a variety of different remedies are used to clear depending on what your body tests up for. Your body innately knows what you need! Some remedies include:

  • Acupressure points
  • Essential Oils
  • Sound healing
  • Oracle cards
  • Color therapy
  • Clearing spray
  • Flower Essences
  • Nature

As we begin to shift layers and clear energetic space, we can invite new/aligned energy, beliefs, and thoughts to take place. It is a beautiful, gentle approach to healing from the inside out.

Emely’s Belief/ Purpose as a Practitioner:

“A great freedom lies within when we choose to step through all the stories that are holding us back. My deepest desire is to support clients through kinesiology to shift, clear and release blocks and stresses from the inner realm. We can then create space to rise into alignment with who we truly desire to be.”

If you would like to book a session or get more information, please connect with Emely at emelcowa@gmail.com.
