Aepril's Astrology Report March 5: FULL MOON in Virgo: our badness as the best in us

-FULL Moon in 14 Virgo at 1:05 pm EST
-Sun conjunct Neptune, Chiron
-Mercury sextile Mars, Venus, Uranus
-Venus trine Saturn
-Venus conjunct Mars
-Venus square Pluto
-Venus conjunct Uranus
-Venus conjunct South Node
-Jupiter trine Uranus
-Saturn square Neptune
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus opposite North Node
-Uranus square Pluto
-Urnaus opposite the North Node, conjunct the South
-Neptune opposite Lilith
-Pluto square the Nodes

We have the Full Moon today at 1:05 pm EST. Luna comes into Her full expression at 14 degrees Virgo, conjunct Black Moon Lilith.

I've shared with quote before, but I think it bears sharing again (I've had it as my email signature forever): 

"The great epochs of our lives are when we rebaptize our badness as the best in us" --Nietzsche 

I am feeling right now that this is a "Be Your True Self" Moon. Virgo is bout integrity: INTEGRATION. We are invited to bring all parts of ourselves together as one whole, perfect in our imperfect-ness!!

Lilith, also is about WHOLENESS. She is about rejecting nothing about ourselves or our experience, but to accept all. She tells us where we might feel shame, especially around our bodies, sexuality, or anythings that we might feel is "inferior" about ourselves.

Lilith is often considered to be "dangerous". This may be because, as the part of us that is uncompromisingly true to ourselves, she does not necessarily go along with the status quo. But what person or society can grow without this impetus? She represents the lower chakras, the serpent wisdom within. We are emotional and physical beings.

In fact, the vast majority of what motivates us is unconscious! Politicians and advertisers know this truth, and use it. But how about we align with the Goddess, and get in synch with these Lilithian energies? We may worry that being in alignment with our instincts may cause us to be overtaken by them, but on the contrary, not giving them their attention and respect makes us susceptible being run by them---or worse, having someone else harness them and run us with them. We instead can harness this power to live more vividly.

This Full Moon has the energy of the Dark Goddess about her, transforming us into better and brighter in direct proportion to how brave we are willing to be in facing our demons. We can turn them into angels again in this way!

The energies are getting more volatile as we continue on with Venus and Mars in Aries, close to the South Node. We are challenged to move on past old relationship patterns. Do you wish to break out of an old way of doing things? Be bold! Be yourself.

We are also moving into eclipse season again, and we'll be talking more about that in reports to come. But expect the unexpected as we move forward from here. Stay with yourself. Trust yourself.

Aepril's Astrology Report: All or Nothing

-Moon in Virgo (Full tomorrow conjunct Lilith)
-Sun conjunct Neptune, Chiron (at midpoint)
-Mercury sextile Mars, Venus, Uranus
-Venus trine Saturn
-Venus conjunct Mars
-Venus square Pluto
-Venus conjunct Uranus
-Venus conjunct South Node
-Jupiter trine Uranus
-Saturn square Neptune
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus opposite North Node
-Uranus square Pluto
-Urnaus opposite the North Node, conjunct the South
-Neptune opposite Lilith
-Pluto square the Nodes


Today is an all or nothing day. Especially in relationships and creative endeavors.

Now is not the time to hold anything back. Now is the time to ask the Universe for what it is that we really want, what it is that makes us feel alive.

The best way to connect with Spirit is via ritual. Ritual takes the intention right where it needs to go, and is the messaging system of the invisibles. The unconscious mind works in symbols, so we can more easily get beyond resistance to manifesting. Ritual helps us focus our energies and send them in an intended direction. It tells the Universe--I'm here, I'm aware, I'm present with this desire, and I"m ready when you are!

We are entering into the Full phase of Luna's cycle. (See my latest Nuit Report for more on this Moon)  This is conducive to raising powerful energies. Luna conjuncts Lilith tomorrow as she goes full; meanwhile, today, Venus makes a conjunction with Uranus and a square over to Pluto. See if you can harness these energies, instead of them harnessing you!! Easier said than done, perhaps. But, paradoxically, the trick is not in trying to be "strong" and forcing ones will (lowercase "w") on any situation, but in being authentically present and tapped into what is already there. then you can get more powerfully aligned.

Are you afraid? Good! This means that you're onto something important. Are you clear? Great. Tell the Universe about it. Are you unclear? Fine. Stay with that, and let it tell you what it needs to. The important thing is that you are where you are, and then you'll know exactly what to do, and when to do it. It'll come naturally.

You don't need to know any special esoteric practices to do a ritual. Anything done with intention is a form of magick. It can be as simple as lighting a candle and focusing on your desire.

Let me know how it goes! :)

Aepril's Astrology Report March 3: breakthrough

-Moon in Leo
-Sun conjunct Neptune, Chiron (at midpoint)
-Mercury sextile Mars, Venus, Uranus
-Venus trine Saturn
-Venus conjunct Mars
-Venus square Pluto
-Venus conjunct Uranus
-Venus conjunct South Node
-Jupiter trine Uranus
-Saturn square Neptune
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus opposite North Node
-Uranus square Pluto
-Urnaus opposite the North Node, conjunct the South
-Neptune opposite Lilith
-Pluto square the Nodes

This can be a breakthrough day.

Jupiter and Uranus make a harmonious and exciting trine to one another, bringing the possibility of "lucky" stuff happening! There is a crackle in the air, especially for those of us with planets around 14 degrees of the Air or Fire signs.

Part of what creates "luck" is the ability to take a chance, and to be in the right place at the right time. It is often a culmination of years of work, that now has the opportunity to pay off.

Venus is involved in this configuration, telling us that part of the trick to taking advantage of these opportunities is to hold oneself in a place of Love. Do you feel deep down that you are deserving of good things? If not, this is a great opportunity to heal that.

Venus also makes intense aspects to the Uranus/Pluto square, giving a reminder that, from the day that you are born until the day that you die, you are the only person that will be with you the whole way. It is imperative that you become your own best friend, and get your own back. Remember, selfish behavior come form a sense of LACK, not out of true self-love. We have to be in state of self love to be able to give ourselves "permission" to receive fortune.

Love and Light to you.

Aepril's Astrology Report March 2: radiant heat

-Moon in Leo
-Sun conjunct Neptune, Chiron (at midpoint)
-Mercury sextile Mars, Venus, Uranus
-Venus trine Saturn
-Venus conjunct Mars
-Venus square Pluto
-Venus conjunct Uranus
-Venus conjunct South Node
-Jupiter trine Uranus
-Saturn square Neptune
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus opposite North Node
-Uranus square Pluto
-Urnaus opposite the North Node, conjunct the South
-Neptune opposite Lilith
-Pluto square the Nodes

The Moon in Leo joins several planets in fire today. We still have lots of heavy stuff going on, but there simultaneously new Life force coming into the picture. I personally am grateful for the warming fire energy, as it seems to have manifested a new furnace into my world...a very welcome development after experiencing the breakdown of the old one. The side of the delivery truck even says: "Radiant Heat", one of those occurrences of correspondence that made me laugh at the wit of this Universe.

The Sun moves into the midpoint between Neptune and Chiron today, making for a very vivid dreamscape that may overlap into the mundane world today. We're perhaps feeling blissed out or hung over from the events of the weekend, or perhaps a little bit of both. There is a magick to this energy, but also a capacity for healing stubbornly persistent wounds.

Jupiter in Leo conjunct the Moon gives us a reminder today that we do well to go toward that which feels good. Joy can be one of the most frightening of emotions; I appreciate what Brené Brown says about "catastrophizing joy" as a preemptive measure for staving off potential loss:

"When we're overwhelmed by love, we feel vulnerable—so we dress-rehearse tragedy...I think the most terrifying human experience is joy... The problem is, worrying about things that haven't happened doesn't protect us from pain. Ask anyone who has experienced a tragedy; they'll tell you there is no way to prepare. Instead it, squanders the one thing we all want more of in life. We simply cannot know joy without embracing vulnerability—and the way to do that is to focus on gratitude, not fear."

I will leave things right there for today.

The Nuit Report for Feb 27-Mar 6: Full Moon in Virgo. Matters of Ultimate Concern.



Take it to the next level of the stars!!! 

I dedicate this Nuit Report to the memory of Ix'chel Kala Joy Neve. A bright beacon of Love and Light in this world, who continues to open hearts and inspire even as she has transitioned to the other side. A free spirit, poet and Sister who's openness and shared experience has been unutterably beautiful. We have collectively received a great gift in her, just by her existence on this plane, and she will be terribly missed by many. 

This week we have several aspects and events that invite us to strongly consider matters of “Ultimate Concern”. Venus makes strong contacts with the ongoing (and culminating) Uranus-Pluto square. We are called to ask ourselves what it is that we truly value—what will matter in the end when we question the meaning of our lives. Do we live in a manner that aligns us with what we truly hold with love, beauty, and value?
The Full Moon at 14 degrees Virgo conjuncts Black Moon Lilith thurs March 5. This asks us to become integrated (or into integrity) with our passion, instincts and sexuality, connecting it with our sense of spirituality, love, and intelligence.We are invited to be more whole, more free. Why are we alive? If today was the last day, what would you most want to make sure that you did? Said? Felt? Loved? Experienced?

"Do not be afraid.
The God is passionate.
The Goddess compassionate.
In Death prepare to live again
Come Spring"

"Change"

Ix'chel Jaguar, October 2014. (C. 2014 , Michelle Neve)”

Aepril's Astrology Report Feb 26: not so bad


This panther COMPLETELY FORGOT it had invited friends round for lunch.

-Moon in Gemini
-Sun square Saturn
-Sun conjunct Neptune
-Mercury sextile Saturn
-Venus trine Saturn
-Venus conjunct Mars
-Mars trine Saturn
-Jupiter trine Uranus
-Saturn square Neptune
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus opposite North Node
-Uranus square Pluto
-Urnaus opposite the North Node, conjunct the South
-Neptune opposite Lilith
-Pluto square the Nodes

I'm going to be blunt: with The Sun still conjunct Neptune today, it might be tempting to just keep our heads up our asses.

It might be hard to be an "adult" today, and "deal". Maybe it would be better to hang out and smoke, or drink, or sleep, or maybe we even get a flu or cold or "stomach thing" to rest without guilt.

We might feel like these 44 Medieval Beasts That Cannot Even Handle It Right Now.

Certainly, we could all use a big laugh!

At its highest vibration, we can use these energies for making art, or at the very least cracking good jokes. At a lower vibe, we might just feel like hiding from the world and having a good cry. And if this is so, that's OK.

Even the Buddha had bad days. We don't just stay aligned 24-7. We come in and out of it, riding the perpetual waves of संसार Saṃsāra. No one can stay on the best vibe ever forever! This is a world of contrast, and that is part of the fun! We are expanding in conscious through days where we might feel like lazy cranky jerks. And that's not so bad.

We are building into some very powerful circumstances over the next weeks. Use this time to check out that link I included, have a good laugh (or cry or temper tantrum or art session or whatever) because things are going to get very interesting. There's no avoiding what's coming, and it's going to be a wing-ding!!! All good stuff of course, designed to set us free and make us invite into more of who we are!

Get your personal reading with Aepril!

Also, be on the lookout for new webinar offered to be announced shortly, Intermediate Astrology, and a webinar on Lilith, and on Shadow Work. Also, I invite you to suggest what you might like to see me offer in the comments. Love and Light!!!

Aepril's Astrology Report Feb 25: Om...

-Moon in Gemini
-Sun square Saturn
-Sun conjunct Neptune
-Mercury sextile Saturn
-Venus trine Saturn
-Venus conjunct Mars
-Mars trine Saturn
-Jupiter trine Uranus
-Saturn square Neptune
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus opposite North Node
-Uranus square Pluto
-Urnaus opposite the North Node, conjunct the South
-Neptune opposite Lilith
-Pluto square the Nodes

Sensitivity increases now as The Sun conjuncts Neptune. Consciousness (The Sun) meets with the Collective Unconscious (Neptune) and we are reminded that--wow, yes! All really IS one.

This can also create some anxiety for our egos as well, as the ego can feel overwhelmed by dissolving barriers. Neptune's action is that of fusing, of shrouding all things in a mist of mystery. Things get a bit unclear, including boundaries. It also may become unclear as to where our keys have gotten to...

Neptune is the Sea, and could be said to rule the Arts as a "higher" octave of Venus. This is a good time for things like meditation, yoga, art making.

We are supported by the sextiles between Mars/Venus and Saturn still today, so we can get things done with less effort. In fact, with the Neptune influence on the Sun, we do well to get out of "problem solving" mode all together. Attacking a problem like its a problem is a form of resistance, and can get us stuck. Instead, cultivate curiosity about what might happen if you went WITH the "problem", rather than against it. The words "solution" and "solve" have the same root as "dissolve".
