April 2021 Astrology Ascendifi Almanac
4/3 – Mercury Enters Aries
Mercury’s transit through Aries can be a swift moving arrow towards your goals. If you have drifted off track which we all have in some sense during the mind trip through Pisces, this time may spark redirection and refinement. Focus is becoming even more so on the self in relation to the ‘other’ while we are all still equilibrating after March’s Libra full moon. There is a fire of opportunity here to ask yourself about what is worth putting your power into and what is your place in things? What position do you want to take in matters happening now? Are situations in alignment with your “I”? Who/what are your opponents to what you are trying to achieve? Aries reminds that you are streaming with life-force and bares the lesson to not inappropriately ignite or project it onto an opponent. The Aries Sun sextiles the North Node subsequently making this a time of rising to a new phase of our ego/spiritual development.
4/4 – Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn The Moon enters earth sign Capricorn squaring the sun in firey Aries. Since Aries and Capricorn are both cardinal signs, they are the initiators and have no problem leaving behind anything that doesn’t suit them anymore. Capricorn are known for their ability to not only set but also attain all of their goals and desires. They will stop at nothing to succeed at whatever they put their mind too. You may start to be seeing whatever is coming in the way of your goals, it could be something in your physical such as a person/job/obligation or it could be your mindset and limiting beliefs. Free yourself. It might be time to leave behind whatever is keeping you off path from your goals. The fear of failure or imposture syndrome might have you thinking you need to prepare everything out and have all the pieces of the puzzle together before acting. Just start with what’s in your way. Ground yourself under this moon and listen to your heart of what doesn’t feel right for you. Let the cardinal energy wash away what is no longer serving you, your heart deserves it.
4/6 – Venus in Aries Sextile Mars in Gemini
Passionate feelings flood the mind seeking space and some form of resolve. A fight for love can be manifesting internally or externally. Walking the path of your own truth you realize the energies within you stir with expansion, realization, manifestation and consequence. What is constant is the evening balance between thought and feeling. Today’s demands pull the self in many directions, but this scale is always weighing in the background much like the heart continues to beat without your conscious command. Throughout your day what comes to you through thought? What comes through feeling? How much do they harmonize? How much do your intentions and actions agree with them? New insights on life balance are available now. A powerful exercise on defining your truth is to write down- On your deepest level what thoughts do you know are true, what emotions within you do you know are true? Do you know love exists, that pain brings healing, nature is divine, or hope is remembering? Let what you know to be true hold you, allow the expansion you seek to come forth from within.
4/9 – Mars in Gemini Square Neptune in Pisces
Transitions can awaken feelings of obsession, paranoia, fear, and hopelessness when there is not enough supportive energy allowing clear sight. All events have their place in the process and that is not to say it makes them any more pleasant. The force of Mars forms an action dynamic (square) with the dreamy haze of Neptune. Can you sacrifice what is most precious to you to the universe? Do you have that trust in your heart? Sacrifice the outcome from your grip, let go of the expectation for the rush of movement to actually come to you. It seems counter intuitive to let go but it is only dedicating yourself to your unfolding. Mercury and Chiron also meet in Aries today bringing development from the Sun, Chiron, Venus conjunction at March’s full moon. If you wish to move forward through the most hard-fought battles, find your resistance, spend time with it and ask it what it most fears. Then, let it go. Neptune is sanctioning ethereal energy, angels, higher light beings and frequencies will take these burdens from you. Like life is full of births and deaths we are continually welcoming things in and out of our arms.
4/11 – New Moon in Aries
As the New Moon in Aries comes in at 22 degrees – CUE YOUR REBIRTH! This is the first New Moon of the astrological year. You have gone through hell since the last New Moon in Pisces and may have released more than you ever thought possible. You are the phoenix rising from the ashes. You have fought your demons off, you have released an ocean of tears, you have pushed forward despite everything in you screaming to make it stop. It can be difficult when you have been faced with things that forever change you. An event or series of events can happen, and you lose a piece of yourself, or a piece of your innocence. The world might look different and feel different. Sometimes you hang on to those wounds and let them direct the path you take in life. New Moon in Aries will give you the power to accept these wounds and thank them for their lesson, they have moved you forward. You have all the motivation you need to start your fire, stay in your power, and keep away from those who try to put your fire out. Instead of looking at it as an anchor holding you back, you are now being called to help others navigate through. You can help elevate the collective consciousness. You have hope for a better future, now you must align with your courage to push forward.
4/14 – Venus Enters Taurus Venus enters Taurus (where she rules both Taurus & Libra) where she will give you a push into going after whatever it is you have your eye on. Taurus loves to be in the present surrounded by the luxuries of everything for your five senses can indulge in. If you are focused on material possessions and money, this is a perfect time to drum up business, connections, and ideas. You will be feeling more creative to find ways to go after your heart’s desires. You may have realizations about what makes you feel like a million bucks. Allow yourself to lean into this feeling. Issues surrounding love and money will come up for you to rewrite. Taurus is known to be stubborn, so it is important to make note of where you are blocking yourself. Becoming jealous and possessive over your relationships or whatever you are placing value for during this time isn’t going to allow more abundance into your life.
4/16 – Sun square Pluto
What is brought to consciousness is intensely experienced now. Having a vision is a very precious thing. Fear can threaten that your vision is being taken from you or dismantled. If you live fixed on protecting your vision you are also under the illusion that something is out there trying to blind you. That is not the highest truth and keeping your vision safe is also keeping it from becoming more. What is feared is not our sought out dreams being ruined or denied but the power that fuels them being taken leaving us deflated. That is an exchange of power. The power you hold cannot be taken away only given because it is yours. Lessons on giving away your power always result in retrieving parts of the soul.
4/17 – Mars in Gemini Trine Jupiter in Aquarius
We all carry tremendous experience no matter where you may be on your journey. No one is unscathed by the seasons of life and their impact on personal belief systems. What we can all embrace is the unfolding of processes through time. Mars in Gemini in particular yields a mental scattering of all experiences on the floor to be reorganized, reconsidered, put in the right boxes and appreciated for how different they may all be. Can you see how a process may be a force of good in your life? In a harmonious aspect with Jupiter in Aquarius we receive the benevolent outcome of our experience. This is a time of getting support for what you want. Make sure you know what that is.
4/19 – Sun Enters Taurus
The Sun has bloomed into Taurus, the luscious, sustaining, Earth mother. A feminine, fixed sign, Taurus likes to have secure footing, they thriv
