The Nuit Report for the week of Aug 29: Sacred Apples and Yogic Union





We are in the midst of some very powerful and challenging energies right now! So many things trying to come together within us...lost pieces of ourselves demanding attention. Old childhood memories may surface now as the cosmic clash (and yogic union!) of energies continues. A flood comes to finally let loose to wash away the old debris. Perhaps we get the benefit of a good tension releasing cry (or two!). Could be more intensive even than that, as the waters come in; change might flow more freely, washing away resistances...

Lilith offers us the sacred apple of power and wisdom; a tantric balance of polarities is called for. We get the most out of our magick when we accept what is, as it is, and go from there. Denial distorts and weakens the will, and delays positive change. Part the mists with the power of pure heart and initiated knowledge; know the secret way to Avalon, Isle of Apples, with the blessings of the Goddess...

Aepril's Astrology Report Aug 28: gentle, simple, and new.

-Moon in Libra
-Sun opposite Neptune
-Venus conjunct Black Moon Lilith
-Venus square Mars
-Venus inconjunct Chiron
-Venus trine Uranus
-Mars trine Chiron
-Mars square Lilith
-Saturn conjunct Mars
-Saturn square Lilith
-Saturn square Venus
-Saturn trine Chiron
-Saturn inconjunct Uranus
-Chiron trine Uranus

Moon makes a square to Pluto this good morn'...and opposes Uranus. There may be a few upsets, but they are short lived---and really, upsets are not necessarily BAD. They awaken us!

The Sun opposes Neptune. The flood comes in. Perhaps the big testing that happened over the last few days finally wore down resistances, and the levee might have broken. This, too, is OK, because there are tensions that just need to be released. We get a chance to get out of our own way and let our divinity take the driver's seat.

This is a great time to get reacquainted with the spiritual centers of the body. Try something gentle, simple, and new. The Sun is in Virgo, the sign of healthy integration of mind, body, and spirit. As Sol opposes the planet of the intangible and the ineffable, we do well to tune into our bodies more carefully and attentively. Perhaps yoga, meditation, guided visualization---things that move the energy into a healthier flow. It's amazing how much of an effect doing so can have on ones life as a whole! And...this is a fine way to prepare for the movement which is coming over the next weeks.

Aepril's Astrology Report Aug 27: bottom line

-Moon in Virgo, into Libra
-Sun opposite Neptune
-Mercury opposite Chiron
-Venus conjunct Jupiter
-Venus conjunct Black Moon Lilith
-Venus square Mars
-Venus inconjunct Chiron
-Venus trine Uranus
-Mars trine Chiron
-Mars square Lilith
-Saturn conjunct Mars
-Saturn square Lilith
-Saturn square Venus
-Saturn trine Chiron
-Saturn inconjunct Uranus
-Chiron trine Uranus

Venus squares Mars today. This is barely coming out of an exact square and conjunction respectively with Saturn. Really, its still all in play, so we are not OUT yet. We are letting it all out, breaking down or breaking through.

Saturn is in Scorpio, and Lilith is involved. We are dealing with rejection--the consequences of what we have rejected in ourselves, of what we have rejected in others. It is also about our collective rejection of others based on---whaddaya have? Sex, race, culture, religion, sexuality, ideas, you name it.  Rejected energies come back to demand attention, and perhaps justice.

Some rejections are unavoidable, though. We just aren't that into whatever it is that we have said no to. It is just not our jam. This is different than rejecting out of fear. This is defining who we are, what we want, what does and does not turn us on. Still, there can be consequences, in terms of conflict and bad feelings. We might have to deal with that now. This is where self mastery comes in, refusing to self-abandon. It's your life. It really is.

Our "bottom line" is tested now. How low will you go? Saturn asks us to think about the consequences of our actions. If we accept such and such behavior from someone now, what can we expect to happen with them down the road? This is a chance to revision and upgrade our expectations.

Sun opposite Neptune reminds us to accept others EXACTLY as they are. So often we try to change each other, with disastrous consequences! Accepting does not mean tolerating that which is not correct for us, or staying with something or someone anyhow. It means SEEING who and what is there and making choices from that place, as opposed to what or who we wish was there. What a weight can be lifted by doing so!

Aepril's Astrology Report Aug 26: Release from the clutches.

-Moon in Virgo
-Sun opposite Neptune
-Mercury opposite Chiron
-Venus conjunct Jupiter
-Venus conjunct Lilith
-Venus square Mars
-Venus inconjunct Chiron
-Venus trine Uranus
-Mars trine Chiron
-Mars square Lilith
-Saturn conjunct Mars
-Saturn square Lilith
-Saturn square Venus
-Saturn trine Chiron
-Saturn inconjunct Uranus
-Chiron trine Uranus

Yeah, Venus is making a square to Saturn. It is exact today. This is about commitment to ones values. We get tested on this today. Are we standing by what we value? Great! Or, have we allowed that to fall out of integrity? Some of us are beholding a mixed result! Ah yes, this earth school thing...we aren't here to be amazing and aligned ALL the time, what with being human and stuff! Now's an opportunity to realign.

We get a does of truth today. If that turns out to be good, then congratulations! Saturn says job well done! If not, that's ok. This is a signal to get clearer about what matters, and prioritize accordingly.

Saturn conjuncting Mars marks the beginning of a two year cycle. How has your last two years been? What worked well, and what could use a revamping and/or revisioning? We can make a new decision about where to put our energy. What kind of work feeds us? It's upgrade time!

Oh, and that pesky shadow. Yeah, that. Always looming about, playing games, making us look all... not shiny. Tricky bastard! But wait...dontcha know? The Shadow is where the WEALTH is! As Saturn continues to cut away obstacles (paradoxically by seemingly creating them, I know, I know...) we get to release buried treasure from the clutches of restriction and repression. Dig!

Aepril's Astrology Report for Aug 25: New Moon: Vanilla ≠ Intergrity.

-NEW MOON in Virgo!
-Moon opposite Neptune
-Sun opposite Neptune
-Mercury opposite Chiron
-Venus conjunct Jupiter
-Venus conjunct Lilith
-Venus square Mars
-Venus inconjunct Chiron
-Venus trine Uranus
-Mars trine Chiron
-Mars square Lilith
-Jupiter inconjunct Neptune
-Saturn conjunct Mars
-Saturn square Lilith
-Saturn square Venus
-Saturn trine Chiron
-Saturn inconjunct Uranus
-Chiron trine Uranus

New Moon at 10:13 AM EST, 2 Virgo.

Virgo can be such a unassuming sign. Virgo is known for its service and humility, preferring to work out the details behind the scenes rather than get all big and bombastic out in the spotlight. She is the High Priestess, connecting spirit and matter, veiled, and revealed only to those with eyes that truly see.

But with the energies we have going this week, she means business. Things are volatile; indeed, this is one of the most challenging astrological episodes of the year. Perhaps there has been too much suppressed for too long; even if this has been out of what seemed like necessity, it can no longer continue. How we experience this energy now will depend on our personal journey. We are reminded that we tend to mirror what we ARE, not what we WANT. For instance, if we feel unworthy in some way, we tend to attract individuals into out lives who are unworthy of us. Etc. You know the drill.

This New Moon opposes Neptune. There can be some Towers falling now, certainly. But there is also great promise for renewal. We get a chance now to let things fall apart (or notice how they are ALREADY apart) and reintegrate in a different way. Things that we thought that we healed long ago might resurface now; we are walking a labyrinth, where we come face to face with the same things again and again on different curves of the path. Lucky for us, Saturn/Mars gives us amazing powers of will direction; we do well to listen well to guidance and align ourselves correctly. Use the Force. This is the time...NOW...to consciously align Love and Will.

Stubborn does not equal strong. Vanilla does not equal integrity...

"The great epochs of our life come when we gain the courage to rebaptize our badness as the best in us." --Nietzsche

Hang in there, folks!! Sun in Virgo.


Hang in there folks!
It's a hum-ding-er of a time right now! If frustration gets you, see if you can stop and listen to what is being said. Chances are there is something to be heard loud and clear. What can still change? What needs to move?

The Sun is in Virgo now. Season shift into more earthiness. But, Virgo IS a mutable sign, so change is possible. We have choices. Think about what you wish to manifest at the New Moon in Virgo on Monday, especially in terms of overall health and daily life. What does your ideal day to day life look like? What could might be prioritized or organized better? With this earth Moon, and Mars conjuncting Saturn, the thought forms that we put out there are likely to stick, so use this Dark Moon weekend to get as clear as possible. This is a great time to do divination and consult with your guides.

Overall, try not to get to uptight. This energy, too, will shift and change! See if you can use it for its maximum manifestation powers!

The Nuit Report! Aug 22: New Moon in Virgo. Integration/Integrity.

This week's Nuit Report is posted and ready to be watched!



And...keep taking in those breaths, cause this week is a ride! We have Venus/Lilith in a square with Saturn/Mars, our HEALTH--mental, physical, spiritual--DEPENDS on us being fully integrated.

When we receive a trauma, we leave parts of our soul in those places in the past, and lose integrity. This time frame holds a call to bring all of ourselves back into focus and alignment. Lilith is what Jung called "The Shamanistc Anima"---she is the key to healing the soul. She is calling us to get right with those parts of ourselves that we chose to leave behind and reject--perhaps at one time for the sake of survival! But now we get an opportunity to reclaim the power to be whole.

This is a time of deep work--but also, as with all New Moons, the potential is there to press the reset button and renew. Veuns in Leo asks us if our hearts are in what it is that we are doing. As she squares Saturn, perhaps it becomes clearer what is and what isn't helping us feel our passion.

Depression and/or melancholy is a clear sign of soul loss. It is a state of being unintegrated. We lose health and reason for living when we suppress aspects of who we are. Lilith reminds us that all demons were angels once. We were born whole; we may have lost that sense. Saturn asks us to re-prioritize that which is truly meaningful. Take a pause if you need to. Refuse to be bullied into being unduly limited--even by those internalized inner demons. There is guidance from the Angel anytime if you open your heart and listen.
