Nuit Report Dec 19th: Solstice and New Moon!



Check out the Solstice Special, just this weekend!!! Get a gift certificate for a beloved in your life, and while you are at it...get a gift for yourself! It is easy, you can do it last minute, and it supports a small woman owned business promoting happiness and growth!!
Check it out here.

On Dec 21, we have several events: The Solstice, the New Moon, and Uranus direct. Two days later, Saturn moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius. Wow! That's quite a line up!!!!

The New Moon happens just two hours after the Solstice, both happening at 0 degrees of Capricorn. Zero degrees of any sign is very powerful, but for a cardinal sign, this packs an extra punch! This is potent moment of both release and intention setting, of calling in AND allowing for space. The space of the quiet of Winter, where the Sun Child (who is ourselves) can develop in infancy; we have entered a state of re-birthed consciousness.

Capricorn has to do with the structures and traditions of the family, and society. Uranus calls on us to awaken to how we really feel about our relationship to this. What needs to awaken, to break through or break out? Capricorn is also an earth sign, and it has to do with manifestation. If we want to continue to manifest what we have, we can keep doing what we are doing. We if need and/or want something different, something has to be done differently. The impetus comes from within, and it comes from the FEELINGS. Go toward what has heart and meaning. There is nothing to "work through" or "figure out". Haha!

Venus in aspect to Pluto/Uranus invites us to ask ourselves: "If I were someone who truly loved myself, what would I do right now?"

Hint: the Angel does not answer rationally. (If it was rational, you have have thought of it by now.)

Aepril's Astrology Dec 18: soul retrieval

-Moon in Scorpio
-Sun trine Jupiter
-Mercury sextile Neptune
-Venus sextile Neptune
-Venus square Uranus
-Venus conjunct Pluto
-Venus sextile Chiron
-Mars sextile Uranus
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus square Pluto
-Uranus stationing to go direct

At the end of the year, we often take stock of what it is that we have done and felt in the year prior. For many of us now though, the astrology is supporting looking at the entirety of our lives.

There is an idea that "we cannot change the past". We are told this over and over again in what are supposed to be theraputic situations. To accept this is supposed to be for our own good. We need to "let go" and "move on". But I'm going to call bullsh*t (I'm a Taurus, sign of the Bull, so I get to do that;)).

We CAN change the past. We can change the way that past events play out in our deep psyches. Even science has come to understand the Time has much more flexibility and directionality than has been thought. So much is about observation...perception. If you can't "let go" of something, its because you ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO YET.

Shamans have known forever that, when we receive a trauma, we leave a bit of our souls behind in Time. We then go forth un-whole, and only part of ourselves is really alive. Sometimes we don't even know that part of us is missing; we are told that we are un-whole through chronic negative feelings. We are also told through the creation of "memes" which have the same feeling tone as the original trauma; it is our psyches attempt to heal through creating a mimic of the original experience---it's saying "Hey, remember this? Part of me is back here! Help!" But usually we focus on the current "new" trauma, usually to repeat it again. It LOOKS different, it has seemingly different characters involved...but the feeling tone is the same.

Guided by our feelings, we can be guided back to the original moment where we left our Soul. Our bodies store such things, and they can be trusted completely. Your body can tell you where to go by following the feeling. Where have you left yourself behind? What part of you would really like to be approved of and brought home?

Notice what is bothering you now...that relationship, that stuck place, that repetitive problem...ask your body to show you what is going on further back by staying with the feeling it presents. Accept what is shown and said, and resist the urge to let your mind tell a "story" about it or insist that it "already knows" what the problem is. You can get free and become whole again.

Aepril's Astrology Dec 17: before the Light

-Moon in Scorpio
-Sun trine Jupiter
-Mercury sextile Neptune
-Venus sextile Neptune
-Venus square Uranus
-Venus conjunct Pluto
-Venus sextile Chiron
-Mars sextile Uranus
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus square Pluto
-Uranus stationing to go direct

As I write this post, the Moon moving through her final minutes in Libra on her way into the Dark Goddess sign Scorpio. The last moments of the overtaking Dark are here. The Moon continues to wane before renewing in a powerful cardinal New lunation on Sun the 23rd. Saturn continues to travel through the last degrees of Scorpio before changing signs on the same day. And, the Sun, who has been appearing to diminish in power, is renewed once more on the Solstice, when He appears to stand still and then move again toward glory!

So here it is folks...we're in it. Anyone who was ANYONE in the world of Myth had to go to the Underworld to gain full Sovereignty. Goddesses, Gods, heroes, heroines...most took a journey of one kind or another into dark and difficult territory in order to come back bigger and better than ever.

In these last few days, it may appear that the Dark is winning. Here's a secret: it's SUPPOSED to look that way. We're supposed to wonder if we have gone too far from the Light, if we will ever heal, if life is worth this battle, if the Sun is ever going to come back to life. That's a crucial part of the story. The cup has to be emptied in order for it to be able to experience being filled. We have to "not know" in order to seek the knowing. We have to journey out into the Dark in order to experience the Joy of returning home to the Light.

I dunno about you guys, but the second I woke up this morning, the race was ON! Gwyddie was jumping on me to get me out of bed, my inbox was full, and my head was full of all that I wish to accomplish on this fine day.

I can be a challenge at times to stay conscious during such moments for any of us! These astrological times can be experienced as harried, but they can also be inspiring! It may seem easier to just stay up in the head and go on autopilot, and forget to pause and tune in.

So let today's post act as a public service announcement to take a breath and slow down. The fact is, you will probably "get more done" that way. Right now we are hitting a moment of testing: do we only tune into our Hearts when we are distressed or in crisis, or when we feel like there is no where else to turn? Or can we remember do it in fast-paced moments of excitement, too? Can we stay present with ourselves under any circumstances, or do we "lapse" back into a disconnected default when things are moving quickly?

I wonder if you can stay present enough to notice what feels good, and what does not. I wonder if you can catch when you are in auto pilot, and stop for a few seconds to follow your breath. There is nothing more important than how you feel; it is your ultimate navigation system. Use it whenever you can remember, and you will be rewarded.

Aepril's Astrology Dec 15: things get personal

-Moon in Libra
-Sun trine Jupiter
-Mercury sextile Neptune
-Venus sextile Neptune
-Venus square Uranus
-Venus conjunct Pluto
-Venus sextile Chiron
-Mars sextile Uranus
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus square Pluto
-Uranus stationing to go direct

Luna activates things first thing Monday, squaring off with Venus. Moon transits are so quick (lasting only hours), I rarely even mention them. But Venus is about to move into some very intense aspects, and her contact with Luna (in her ruling sign of Libra) gets things started.

This week is kind of a big deal. We have a waning Moon, we are finishing up our experience of Sun in Sagittarius. AND...about one week from now...Saturn finishes his long stint in Scorpio and makes his way INto Sagittarius. We are finishing up a long phase of development, folks.

Uranus and Pluto made their 6th of 7 exact squares (for more on that see my Nuit Report posted Fri: "Awakening".) As if that energy isn't volatile enough, Venus will be moving into direct contact with this powerhouse of collective change and upheaval, making things PERSONAL.

Relationship and money issues continue to intensify as this week moves forward. Venus is all about worth, and we are given a strong invitation to look carefully at what we are continuing to invest in: emotionally, financially, artistically, spiritually. What you are seeing in the mirror that is your external world IS EXACTLY in alignment with the way that you are internally holding your self. This week we get to make adjustments as needed, remembering that negative emotions are a signal that we are thinking in ways that are in resistance to our True Self. Go toward what feels good.

Nuit Report: Weekly Astrology Dec 12: Awakening



Uranus and Pluto are continue to square off in a tremendously powerful aspect. They have been at it for the last few years in the background, changing lives in profound and radical ways. But they are not quite finished! We are up for a grand finale firework display!!

This is the Great Awakener squaring off with the God of the Underworld. We are pushed toward ownership and awareness of ALL that we are. Wholeness is more valuable than perfection.

This square activates the Moon's Nodes, letting us know that the more that we can awaken, the more we continue to evolve. We ARE the Universe experiencing ITself. We are the front line.

Aepril's Astrology Dec 11: its your move

-Moon in Leo
-Sun square Chiron
-Sun sextile Node
-Mercury square Chiron
-Mercury trine Uranus
-Mercury trine Jupiter
-Venus sextile Jupiter
-Jupiter square Saturn
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus square Pluto

It's almost like there is just TOO MUCH going on! Most mornings I just sit down and write with ease, but this morning the focus was not happening in the same way. So I decided to pull a tarot card for today:
The 10 of Coins for the Rumi deck. "Pure gold is glad in the heart of the fire"

And whaddaya know! Today, Luna makes a conjunction to Jupiter in Leo. This is the Heart, and yes, this is fire. This is the Monad. The Center. the Source. The Undivided Self. It is The Golden Stone of the Wise.

Coins are of the element of Earth. So here we go: 10 is the culmination number of the suit. To get our best stuff manifested, get in line with Source. And guess what--good news! You ARE Source! You don't have to wait for the Universe to tell you what needs to happen next---you are actually needing to tell IT. It is experiencing ITself through you. Through the YOU that is already whole and perfect. It is waiting for you to make the next move, to go towards your vision, to seek what makes the hours fly by, to step into your passion.

THIS is what will bring wealth. This is what will open the door to an experience of abundance.

There are a lot of energies right now that are inviting us to bust out of old leaden weight and move forward. It is your choice what happens next.
