April 2021 is a strongly Mars dominant month, with Mars governing both Aries and Scorpio. The beginning of this month, we have several planets in the constellation of Aries imbuing the unified field with the quality of Mars, which is bold, impulsive, independent, and energizing. We all will be tested to respond with awareness or react on impulse. We end this month with a full moon in Scorpio.

How we wield our power is influenced by our natal geometry in dialogue with Mars and Pluto this month. The new moon on April 11th is squaring Pluto in Capricorn suggesting transformation of our fears to courage, facing obstacles to action and transforming freeze response to flow. This new moon sets a tone for each of us individually and collectively.

In terms of spectrum and duality, the predominance of fire could inspire initiative, boldness, enhanced will power in some, but for others it can impel reactiveness, anger, impatience and brusque behavior. 

Lovely Venus Is conjunct the Sun in Aries on this new moon. We can tap into her energy to harmonize our thoughts before we speak or react. All planets are in direct motion this month until April 28th when Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn.

The full moon on April 26th is in the constellation of scrutinizing Scorpio. This powerful force urges us to let go and move forward with our new initiatives. Pay attention to your inner voice and its guidance. What do you KNOW that you KNOW, but still holding on and letting go?  This configuration highlights endings, purges intense emotions, and encourages us to confront what has been lurking in the shadows.

The midpoint of the Sun and Moon opposition is Saturn in Aquarius is restructuring our collective progressive ideals.  The Sun is in stable Taurus aligned with unpredictable Uranus. Taurus represents our values, money, and possessions. We may experience sudden changes or shocking revelations in these areas.

The full moon in Scorpio tends to reveal secrets or disclose what has been hidden. Resistance to inevitable changes is what creates suffering. During this phase of the moon and its cycle, be mindful of what branches need pruning, so your flowers can bloom in this coming Spring.  Set the intention then act accordingly. The time is now. Letting go is not always easy, but it is simple.
