2/12/11 Blogged: Love and Soul, An Interview with Jessica Shepherd by Travel & Soul Editor Erin Reese

Hearts and flowers, warm fuzzies, and happily-ever-afters. Is this the reality of true, soulful love? Or is there perhaps something to be said for the type of relationship that occasionally puts us through the ringer, whether or not the ring is on the finger?

You may know the groundbreaking creativity book, The Artists Way by Julia Cameron…I dare say A Love Alchemists Notebook is THE Artists Way for love, relationship, and romance, with a complete creativity system to attract love into ones life. The alchemical principles are timeless, and the exercises within WORK. Read more.


2/12/11 Ottawa Citizen Newspaper (CANADA): Baked with love

The Happy Baker Erin Bolger and Love Alchemist Jessica Shepherd cast a spell by mixing love magic with food.

To find out, I phoned my friend and expert on love, Jessica Shepherd, author of A Love Alchemist’s Notebook: Magical Secrets For Drawing True Love Into Your Life… Read more.


1/30/11 Blogged: From’s Maria DeSimone

My Venus has fallen…and she can’t get up. (Then) I met a book that reminded me how powerful my tragic, battered Venus really is. A book that has me riveted because, in less than a week it’s helped me restore the power inside of my Venus. It’s reminded me that she’s brave and one day, she’ll have the courage to love again. If your Venus is broken…or you think it is, I can’t recommend this book enough. Read more here.


1/21/11 Blogged: The Diva Digest

Oh Jessi, you vivacious minx! How lucky can we get to have a hot red-headed astrologist who is married and living a (presumably) happy life out on the Bay to tell us how to draw love into our lives? Usually it’s old women who have never had a lover and live alone with their cat in Nebraska. Those who cannot do, teach, but not in this case! This book is such a fun mix of anecdotes and quips that you can easily overlook the fact that it his positively filled with wisdom, both inherent and scientifically based. Read the full blog right here.


1/5/11 Blogged: In Loving Response-ability

Jennifer says, I was stunned a few months ago. In reading Jessica Shepherd’s book A Love Alchemist’s Notebook (a book I highly recommend and pick up almost every night for a refresher on love), she spelled (pardon the pun) it out for me. Responsibility = the ability to respond. Duh. No kidding, why hadn’t I noticed it before?…Read more here.

2/8/10 A STARRED REVIEW from Publisher’s Weekly!

Not every book receives the honor of being reviewed by PW, and apparently RED STARRED reviews are few and far between. That’s why I’m over the moon thrilled with this fantastic praise! Astrologist-blogger Shepherd (of Venus and Beyond: Love on the Outer Planets) offers a welcome oasis for those who feel stranded by lower-your-expectations dating guides (see He’s Just Not That Into You). Rather than focus on pitfalls, Shepherd prescribes a “cosmic love adventure”…click here to read the full Publisher’s Weekly review.
