Congratulations, stellar sisters: We have officially succeeded through the first quarter of 2021! The astrology of April 2021 is accelerating with many planetary changes and the first retrograde in more than two months. March has introduced the astrological new year, Aries season and the beginning of spring, so we are going to this new month with many new initial energies with us. You will definitely want to mark your calendar for some of the major astrological events in April 2021.
The first half of April will be dominated by the combative energy of Aries season 2021, which culminates during the sharp new moon in Aries on April 11 (which is auspicious to be the first new moon of spring). As we move into the second half of the month, we will begin to feel the basic vibrations of Bull season more intensely as huge three planets enter the bull’s sign between April 14th and 19th. In fact, all the personal planets in astrology will change signs this month, so we will feel some significant energy changes.
Speaking of changes, the end of the month brings the first planetary retreat since February, as Pluto retreat 2021 begins on April 27th. Until then, we’re officially in a retrograde free zone – so take advantage of this advancing energy before things worry.
Read on for your April 2021 astrological overview and get ready to make some cosmic moves.

This culminates on April 11, during which we will experience the cosmic renewal caused by the new moon of April 2021.

On April 14, a romantic Venus enters Taurus, which heightens our feeling and indulgence regarding love and money. Now there is no need to rush anything in love, because Taurus likes to be pragmatic, take his time and enjoy the present moment.
On April 19, both the sun and Mercury will join Venus in Taurus – marking the beginning of Taurus season 2021. With three significant planets entering Toro’s terrestrial territory in just a few days from each other, the energy change will be palpable – and we’ll finally be able to calm down and make sense of all the plans we made during the Aries season.

Fire Mars is not very comfortable in water Cancer, so we may feel that our ability to act on things is a bit stifled by overly protective feelings and an intense mood.
As if the origin of Mars in Cancer has not deepened us enough in our senses, we will also have an emotionally charged overflowing rise in the water sign of Scorpio territory just a few days later on 26 April. The full moon of April 2021, known as the Pink Moon, will shine a light on our deepest feelings and darkest secrets – so get ready to dive beneath the surface and immerse yourself in the greatest mysteries of life.
Let The Retrograde Begin
The last months of the month bring us a familiar yet annoying astrological phenomenon: the beginning of the retrograde season of the year, which will begin on April 27 with the retrograde Pluto 2021. This backbone will force us to dive into self-reflection and embrace serious things. internal transformations until October 6th.
The backward journey of this planet takes place every year and lasts about five months, so it’s nothing we haven’t experienced in a year. But after a solid two months without any setbacks, this atmosphere could require some adjustment time.
