Nuit Report March 27-Apr 3. Eclipse Portals

First an announcement: I have two new offerings!

Astrology Basics online class....now available to all!

And an introductory webinar on magick. Magick 101. We'll explore different kinds of magick, and go over the basics of manifestation, spiritual practice, the seasons, the role of astrology and divination, the role of sex in magick, projection, ritual, etc. This is a brief introductory webinar, good for those who are totally new to magick as well as those looking for a refreshed perspective.

Register and find out more.





We are currently in a space bookended by two eclipses.

Shed that skin!

We are being invited? pushed? dragged? called? seduced? through the doors. We are shedding old self concepts to move forward into a bigger better version of ourselves.

The Self has no problem with change. Its the ego that has trouble! But we need to be kind to ourselves, and recognize that the ego has its job to do---it wants to self preserve. And there is often intelligence in this, of course!

But now is a time to move into a bigger, albeit scarier space. A more ALIVE space.

I'm not saying that its cute. Nope. For many of us, this has been a challenging time indeed. All sorts of difficult feelings may be coming up...even if we perceive the events as "good". But let's see if we might use this energy, instead of it using US.

I pull a card in this video that is perfect for this time frame! I'll let you watch and find out...

"He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise. "

Is it making you happy to stay where you are?

Truly happy. In your heart.

Why is it that so often we think that our happiness is something that we might get down the road? In the future... That now we must meet these obligations, answer these appetites, have these experiences, achieve this goal.

When is the future? Exactly when? Isn't NOW the future?

We always seem to be looking for something outside of ourselves. Outside of what is already there.

I know that many of my readers have scars from and sensitivities about Christianity, so forgive me if I offend. But please put aside any knee jerk reactions for a moment...

To quote the master magician and mystic Jesus: The Kingdom of God is within you.

What is it that you think you need? I'm am not saying that you should NOT need anything. That is not mine to determine for you. But what if you were to really follow what you think would make you feel HAPPINESS?

If you do not know what this is, you are off to a great start. You now know that you don't know. That is REAL, and that is powerful medicine.

If you DO know, that is also wonderful. Follow your bliss.

The fact is that we are mortal. This incarnation is finite. Why should we ever squander Joy?

And let's get really into it with this question: When you are on your death bed, and you are looking at your life, what will really matter?

Sometimes its the knowing that we will die that can push us through the door to really living.

What is in your heart today? What is within you, wanting so much to be born? Only you have the answer.

Aepril's Astrology March 25: tricky psyche

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

This is a good day to make a plan. (Sun trine Saturn.)

There are a lot of uncertainties though. I know, someone out there is saying, "Aren't there always? Tell me something that I don't know." Sure. That is true. There is always uncertainty. But there are seasons for all things, an ebb and a flow. And some moments are more confusing than others.

Here's the thing about what we experience as confusion. It is usually an indication that there is a feeling that we aren't allowing ourselves to experience fully. Something that we are trying to avoid.

Our psyches are infinitely intelligent. They do amazing things to keep us "safe". They find labyrinthine pathways, like a bowl of spaghetti, to both protect us from the "danger" of remembering/re-experiencing wounding things, and to also call in healing. They create "memes" that look different, sound different, smell different than the original experience, but yet recreate the very same feeling tone that was there the first time around. Tricky bastards!!! Haha! Our mothers, our fathers, the bullying kids, the illness we fought, etc. come back for another round, initially masquerading as something or someone else.

Our psyches in this way try to provide us with an opportunity for healing. An opportunity to do things differently this time. An opportunity to reclaim pieces of ourselves that have been left in the past. To bring ourselves home.

This is a time when we can notice any resistance that we may have to who we are. To WHERE we are. First we have to admit exactly where we are. Put down the phone, stop chasing the appetite (just for a minute!), stop kvetching about how awful things are (hamster wheeling it), and just be present with where you are RIGHT NOW. I assure you, things will flow much more smoothly (and with much more room in your chest for your breath) than if you keep trying so hard. Love, love, love to you.

Note: As of next week, I am going to reduce the blog posts down to Mondays and Wednesdays, with the Nuit Report posted each Friday. This is to give me more room for readings with you so that turn around time is quicker, and it will also give me some space to attend to some new offerings that I would like to develop. I hope that you will understand and that I will still have your support, which is of the utmost importance to me!

And, I am looking forward to reading for you! And to more classes.

Aepril's Astrology March 24: compassionate truth

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

The #1 thing we can do today is breathe.
Give it all a rest.

Mercury conjuncts Chiron in Pisces, this calls for compassion. We might be finding ourselves in a bit of a challenging area. Even when things are going "well" from our ego's point of view, we might still be touching upon some spots in the psyche that have some ouch potential.

Chiron-Mercury requires gentle thoughts. We might be seeing all the places in which we are wounded, or where we have doubts. There is great healing potential now, particularly in getting better acquainted with the way our minds are functioning.

What we say and don't say can be focus. Should I say something? Why did I say that? Would it help to talk about it, or would it be better to leave it alone for now? Did I reveal too much? Not enough?

Venus and Neptune sextile today, allowing for some heart opening if you are willing to allow it. The heart is always the best guide, and now is a good time to connect it with the mind. the throat chakra is the bridge, and this is where we hold our authenticity and say our truth. It is also, interestingly, where we receive love.

Aepril's Astrology March 23: anything can happen

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

Dude! This posted later than my usual 10am schedule. Wanna know why?

Because this week has kicked my ass!!! Haha!

What a big one, huh? Holy smokes. We are now between eclipses. This means that, well, ANYTHING can happen.

I am not in the business of "predictions", because I believe that takes the power out of our hands. We have free will. We are the Universe experiencing itself. We tell the Universe what it is that we wish to experience--consciously and unconsciously--and that creates the World. I know that I frustrate some of you sometimes when I read for you and tell you that its "up to you" what happens. You are a co-creator! Even in the best of readings--astrology, tarot, i-ching--the outcome that appears can change. Any change to the direction of the path; any change of mood or thought--and the whole course of manifestation can change. The oracle is fluid. We need most of all to come home to ourselves as much as we can, and this is one of astrology's greatest gifts, in that it can facilitate that by articulating what is there, in its mapping.

And, I see myself as a Weather Forecaster. But these eclipses make it especially challenging to even tell you which direction the wind is blowing! We are in the eye of the storm, where we have a brief respite, but there is more coming. And anything is possible.

The Moon goes void-of-course today after a square with Pluto, so this just adds to the up-in-the-air-ness of it all combined with emotional intensity.

I am hearing from many of you that much is "coming up" now that is challenging our usual ways of navigating things. Well, I say GOOD. Messes are sometimes GOOD. Shake it up. Let things move around. Expand the parameters.

Tell me in the comments about your experience if you will! :) I'd love to hear more.

Nuit Report March 20-27. Life/Death/Life



It's Eclipse season. At the time of this writing, the Equinox is pending. The Wheel is turning once again. A portal has opened.

We are invited to move though a door today. The door to a renewed relationship to Self.

We get an opportunity to leave a self-concept behind, to let it dissolve. To let our bigger, more powerful and authentic Self to emerge into the light of day. This is the dawn.

We are each the Holy Fool, walking forth into the unknown.

When we begin, we automatically make an agreement to experience an ending. When we love, we automatically make a pact with Death. When we take pleasure, we automatically invite in pain. When the new day begins, night will come again.

But this is what brings in Eternal Life. This is what makes us whole. It is the way of the Anima, the Soul.

She changes everything She touches, and everything She touches changes. 

The deeper wisdom is that all that dies is also born again. The more we can be present with Death, to love Her and untangle Her bones, the more Eros, or Life-force, makes its way in.

Go deep. Go brave. Go within. Go toward what makes you feel ALIVE!

Go team, GO!!!!

Aepril's Astrology March 19: this is the time...

-Moon in Pisces
-Mercury conjunct Neptune
-Mercury square Saturn
-Mars conjunct Uranus
-Mars square Pluto
-Mars conjunct S. Node
-Mars trine Jupiter
-Jupiter trine Uranus 
-Saturn square Neptune
-Chiron sextile Pluto
-Uranus opposite North Node
-Uranus square Pluto
-Urnaus conjunct South Node
-Neptune opposite Lilith
-Pluto square the Nodes


We are in the darkest dark of the Moon. We are in the last degrees of the zodiac. As we talked about yesterday, this is completion time. The New Moon Solar Eclipse at 29 Pisces happens first at 5:36 am EDT, then comes the Equinox at 6:45 pm EDT. 

We can move out of the past and into the next phase now. There is a cosmic Intelligence behind all that happens. Can you feel that? 


This is a time for divination. Get out your cards, your I-ching, your runes, and ASK the Universe what you'd like to know about. Know that it is not a greater power than your own Divinity that speaks to you, but rather the Divinity within yourSelf that is reflected. 


This is a time for mediation. Listen, feel, allow for your Angel to speak to you. Don't assume that you already know what is there. All answers reside within. There is always more to know. Allow yourself to be surprised. Allow yourself to be Loved. 

This is a time for ritual. What do you wish to ritually celebrate? How can we show gratitude for what already is? How can we ritually honor and release the past? How can we call in the future? 


This is a time to envision what it is that we want to move toward. Let yourself float in the Cosmic waters. Let it take you downstream without effort. Where does it take you? What direction brings you the most joy, the most pleasure? The most aliveness? Can you trust the Universe? Can you trust yourSelf? 

I am following my Guidance right now and sharing this part of an ancient poem with you called Thunder, Perfect Mind. It is, to me, one of the most beautiful things ever written about the Mysteries:

 I was sent forth from the power,
and I have come to those who reflect upon me,
and I have been found among those who seek after me...


For I am the first and the last.
I am the honored one and the scorned one.
I am the whore and the holy one.
I am the wife and the virgin.
I am <the mother> and the daughter.
I am the members of my mother.
I am the barren one
and many are her sons.


I am she whose wedding is great,
and I have not taken a husband.
I am the midwife and she who does not bear.
I am the solace of my labor pains.
I am the bride and the bridegroom,
and it is my husband who begot me.


I am the mother of my father
and the sister of my husband
and he is my offspring.
I am the slave of him who prepared me.
I am the ruler of my offspring.


But he is the one who begot me before the time on a birthday.
And he is my offspring in (due) time,
and my power is from him.
I am the staff of his power in his youth,
and he is the rod of my old age.
And whatever he wills happens to me.


I am the silence that is incomprehensible
and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.
I am the voice whose sound is manifold
and the word whose appearance is multiple.


I am the utterance of my name.
