The first half of April will pass relatively quickly, everyone will feel that things are moving at a rapid pace. April brings us renewed motivation and invites us to tackle projects on which we had procrastinated before.
A fantastic and uplifting energy characterized the first half of April, so connect with it and use it to move projects forward, launch new ideas, and get creative.
The New Moon in Aries on April 11 is the perfect day to set goals and plant seeds of intention. It carries powerful magnetic energy that can help you attract anything you desire.
In the first part of the month, the square March Neptune could create some tension or bring information to the surface, which will trigger strong reactions.
As we enter the season of Taurus in the middle of the month, we will find that things slow down a bit. We will then have to work with what is already in front of us rather than adding something new.
The month then ends with the Super Full Moon of Scorpio restorative, and Sun performs its annual alignment with Uranus, which has the power to bring a moment of enlightenment.
All of this energy combined makes April a month to take action, trust our intuition, and be open to change. To guide you through the energies of the month, let’s take a closer look at the dates to watch in astrology for April 2021.

April 19 – Season of Taurus
Welcome to Taurus season! We leave the fiery Aries for the more methodical earth sign of Taurus. Aries season has been busy and we may have felt that time was passing quickly.
