Welcome to April 2021! We have entered a month of divine blessings and movement! After a rough last few months (especially January + February) April 2021 wants to grant your wishes and to introduce you to unlimited possibilities and magic.
In April, most of the planets will begin to move into the fire and earth signs of Aries and Taurus. This will create lots of drive and inspiration as well as practicality and solid footing.
April 2021 wants you to take a chance on something larger than yourself. A dream vision, project or business is enhanced this month. If you have been wanting to go out there and make your mark on the world, then the astrology of April 2021 is shining in your favor. All the planets will be direct until April 27th (when Pluto goes retrograde) so now is the time to put the pedal to the medal.
Fortune favors the brave. Fortune also favors the grounded application of practicality and planning. Both will be supported this month, so my advice is to take that idea, dream or inspiration and offer it to the universe. You might be amazed at how fast your manifestations come in. The universe and spirit are guiding you. All you have to do is trust and take it one step at a time.
April 2021 will also begin the rumblings of the upcoming eclipse season, which will officially begin in May. Since eclipse energies can be felt up to 6 weeks prior to the actual date of their occurrence, we could start to see major shifts in energies, especially as we move into the end of April. If you have Gemini or Sagittarius prominent in your chart (Sun, Moon, Rising, or cusp of the 1st, 4th, 7th or 10th houses) then you might be the initial bearers of such changes that this eclipse season will bring. Expect the unexpected if you fall in this group. Everyone will be impacted to some degree, so pay attention to any sudden shifts or reversals that begin in April as that is the nature of eclipse energy.
We begin the month of April with Mercury, the planet of, the mind, intellect and communication moving into the fiery and trail blazing sign of Aries. Aries, the 1st zodiac sign is all about, forward movement, action and inspiration. Mercury in Aries wants to light a spark of creative movement and drive behind any of your business projects or ideas. Sudden communications will be particularly emphasized with Mercury being in the ram’s den. Aries energy is anything but wishy washy or indirect. In fact, Aries is quite the opposite. Expect some blunt and honest communication with Mercury here. You will be all charged up to express your heart’s desires and a lot of progress within your communication with others is indicated.
On April 11th, we have the New Moon at 22 degrees of Aries. New Moons always signal, fresh starts, fresh slates and awakenings. Aries, the 1st zodiac sign is all about, inspiration, movement, entrepreneurship and passion. The New Moon in Aries is a wonderful time to begin a new project, business or creative idea. In ancient times, it was auspicious to begin new ventures at the New Moon in Aries as it signaled the beginning of the astrological new year. Whatever endeavor you create currently has lots of momentum and success to go the distance. Fiery flames of passion and purpose is what this new moon heralds. Expect to feel awakened to your power and sense of adventure again.
On April 19th, the Sun, which represents our, vitality, ego and life force shifts from the fiery sign of Aries and moves into the earth sign of Taurus. Taurus, the 2nd zodiac sign, deals with, practicality, sensuality and enjoying Mother Gaia. The Sun’s shift into Taurus is a soothing balm of coming back down to earth and with focusing more on our tangible existence and resources. This includes our inner resources of self-worth and self-respect. Nature is calling and since Venus rules the sign of Taurus, we will want to create beautiful gardens and enjoy sensuous foods and pleasures.
On April 23rd, Mars, the planet of, war, aggression and purpose, leaves the airy sign of Gemini and moves into the watery and moody sign of Cancer. Cancer, the 4th zodiac sign represents, home, family and emotional foundations. Mars entry into Cancer will bring out some rather passive aggressive energies. Mars happens to be in his fall in Cancer as he is exalted in its opposite sign of Capricorn. This will make this 6-week trek through the emotional and deep waters of Cancer a little more difficult for the warrior planets. Mars in Cancer could bring up fiery situations with family members and you might notice that folks’ moods could be all over the shop. Being mindful and grounding will be particularly challenging but uber important with this aspect. This is a great time however, to work on remodeling or purchasing, property, a house or land. Also, renovating your current abode could also be a healthy way to utilize Mars in Cancer’s energy.
On April 26th, we have the Super Full Moon at 7 degrees of Scorpio. This will be the second super full moon of 2021, so it will again be a powerful lunation. Full Moons are highly emotional and charged with magic and manifestation energies. Scorpio, the 8th zodiac sign is all about, shared resources, power, transformation and secrecy. The Full Moon in Scorpio will be super deep and very revealing. Secrets and unknown truths could rise to the surface at this time. A mysterious and almost unexplainable air of power is what this full moon is all about. Expect to be probing deep within whatever area of life Scorpio rules in your chart. Repressed traumas or issues with giving our power away will also be big themes. This Full Moon in Scorpio wants you to finally put those tendencies to rest and to create boundaries within and with folks around you. A rising of power and transformation will be very apparent with this intense and soul exposing super full moon.
April 2021 wants you to get out of your comfort zone and to go after what you were put on this earth to accomplish. With the elements of fire + earth so prominent, you will have access to a fire of inspiration within but also the grounded application of such fire to make a dream a reality. If you have felt stuck or plain unmotivated, then April 2021 wants to put a pep back in your step. You were not created to play small or to listen to those mindless loops within your brain. It is time to get out into nature and reconnect with her passion and support. You are never alone, and spirit wants you to know that they are right behind you this month. April 2021 is here to create a sense of inspiration and fiery passion back into your life, remind you that you are supported by Mother Earth and to gain back your sense of energy and passion for your true heart’s desires.
