Full Moon April 26, 2021 – Restrictive Change

Full Moon April 2021 AstrologyThe Scorpio full moon on Monday, April 26, 2021, is opposite Uranus. So the spiritual meaning of full moon April 2021 astrology relates to unexpected events, sudden, changes, impulsiveness, and rebelliousness. 

However, the limiting and depressing influence of Saturn is an even stronger influence on the April 2021 full moon because it square aspect to the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus. This combination of hard Saturn and Uranus aspect makes this a full moon of restrictive change.

Thankfully, the full moon is also trine Mars which gives the courage and strength to overcome any unexpected changes or barriers. And you can count on good judgment and even more courage from the April 11 new moon.

Full Moon April 2021 Astrology

The April 26 full moon at 07°06′ Scorpio makes three challenging planetary aspects and only one helpful aspect. So overall, this is a difficult full moon.

The strongest of these aspects is the full moon opposite Uranus. While the full moon square Saturn is only a weak aspect. But the restrictive and depressive influence of Saturn is still significant because Saturn square Uranus is the major astrological influence of 2021.

The chart below shows Saturn is in a much closer square aspect to Mercury and Venus. That means the four most personal planets are all square Saturn: The Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus.

In addition, the Sun, Moon, and the Mercury-Venus conjunction are all under the influence of challenging fixed stars. Two of the three stars with a Saturn nature.

Full Moon Meaning

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Full Moon Aspects

Full Moon opposite Uranus can cause unexpected events, sudden, changes, mood swings, and impulsive reactions. Such things can lead to anxiety, nervousness, agitation, emotional detachment, and relationship turmoil.

A strong need for independence and rebelliousness are other disruptive forces to be aware of. You may subconsciously be looking for excitement. But your intuition and instincts may also be impaired. So be very careful about making major changes, especially in intimate relationships.

Full Moon square Saturn has a restricting and depressing influence on your feelings and relationships. It becomes harder to emotionally connect to others. Sadness, loneliness, guilt, and shame are possible as you are reminded of past relationship failures, loss, and grief. Bitterness or low self-esteem may also hold you back from sharing your emotions.

Full Moon trine Mars brings courage, initiative, emotional strength, passion and sex appeal. You will intuitively know what you want and how to get it, especially in relationships. It helps you be direct and assertive without looking bossy or rude. These are the things you can use to overcome the more numerous challenges from Saturn and Uranus.

More Aspects

Mercury square Saturn makes it harder to communicate your plans and ideas because of negative thinking, crticism, misunderstandings and arguments. If studying or doing important work, pay attention to detail. Seek trusted, professional advice if involved in contracts, business or legal matters. Do not rely on the words of others, and be careful with your own.

Venus square Saturn adds tension to your love life. It makes it harder to share your affections because of delays, shyness, distance, or other restrictions. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms. But you may also face rejection or guilt trips from others. So don’t be hard on yourself and don’t ignore the affections of others. This aspect is also associated with financial hardship.

The Fixed Stars

Full Moon April 2021 is at 07°06′ Scorpio Sign. But as the star map below shows, it is in the Constellation of Virgo. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago. Virgo is also the longest constellation, spanning over 50 degrees in the Zodiac.

Full Moon April 2021 Summary

The April 26 full moon opposite Uranus brings unexpected events, sudden, changes, impulsiveness, and rebelliousness. The alignment with fixed star Khambalia adds unreliability, changeability, and arguments.

However, the restrictive influence of Saturn is a stronger influence on the full moon April 2021 astrology because it is in a challenging square aspect to the Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Venus. It brings sadness, criticism, fear, and guilt, and makes it harder to share your thoughts, feelings, and affections.

Added to this, the fixed stars on the Sun, Mercury and Venus are of a Saturn nature. They bring the potential for impediments, worry, tests of endurance, loss, and disgrace.

The combination of all these difficult aspects and stars is likely to cause some self-doubt and problems with self-esteem, especially for decans 1 and 2 Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Relationships will come under a lot of strain if negative thinking is projected onto others through nasty words, criticism, or disloyalty.

Thankfully, the full moon trine Mars gives the courage, intuition, emotional strength, and initiative to overcome any adversity. Plus, the influence of the April 26 full moon is combined with the much more positive influence of the April 11 new moon.

The new moon continues to bring the courage and good judgment to take advantage of opportunities for growth. It can help you overcome the full moon limitations like shyness and depression. It is also good for breaking through other barriers to progress and success.

The effects of the April 26 full moon lasts for two weeks up to the May 11 new moon.If the full moon April 2021 astrology directly impacts your horoscope decan you can read about it in your monthly horoscope. For more detail about how it affects your natal chart see full moon transits.

  1. Wonderful work, thank you for your great study…. I notice I have same book Fixed Stars and Constellations in Astrology, Vivian E. Robson, I have original form 1923 ))) smart book 😉

  2. I find your site to be extremely clear and helpful. You emphasis the positive, but inform us where/when to be careful. Thank you for your fine work.

  3. Ok, i am in a total panic here. In my time zone, the full moon is 12:31 a.m. April 27th.
    I am scheduled to get my first shot of Pfizer vaccine on April 27th at 11:00 a.m.
    Now i am freaking out.
    Can anyone tell me what the restriction and bad aspects have to do with my physical health and getting the vaccine? I am otherwise healthy, with a few well controlled medical problems. I’m 61.

    Help !!!

    • Hi Vicki. I am sorry this post has you freaking out. I doubt very much that a full moon would affect a vaccine. Plus the Pfizer vaccine is the safest of all I heard. I can only get the AstraZeneca vaccine 🙁

    • Vicki-
      I appreciate you tuning into the larger picture of supporting astrology of your life. events- no need to panic.
      Meet the opportunity with appreciation. A vaccine is a restrictive object in itself- it will be restricting the growth of the virus in your body. Fullmoon is high tide- fullness of water in your body- great time to get a vaccine. Stay hydrated, take it easy with anything else you do that day, restrict what you eat-avoiding junk foods and alcohol, and heavy smoking and exertion. Common sense things-yes. Best to you!-
      I had Moderna vaccine and did so with appreciation.

      • Oh Sunny, thank you so much !! I love what you have to say ! Yes, i truly have never thought about it that way – i have always let fear get in my way……….you have no idea what your response has done to realign my beliefs. I don’t have anything to fear – i need to embrace this opportunity.

        Thank you so very much. I seriously made so many decisions in the past that were fear based. You have really really opened my mind and i am truly grateful to you.


      • Dose 2 moderna on full moon. I am 26 degree taurus 3rd decan virgo moon and cancer rising. I have been depressed and down on myself. As I am stuck in my room unable to even work from home due to chills, fever, body aches and headaches, I am thinking of this is scropionic terms. Destruction of old me for new me. I did not honor my body over pandemic and while I have lost 12 pounds since January, I still have vices. At the new moon I moved into my new office, but I have continued to show about 30% of my pandemic vices. I am ready to be reborn.

    • Don’t get the experimental, liability-free injection. People are already dying and ending up with serious debilitating conditions from it. VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System) reports are off the charts. This thing is seriouslt hurtinf people. Go and look for yourself.

      Trust your instinct. Just don’t do it. Ever. Please.

  4. Hi Jamie, thank you ! It isn’t just your post it is every astrology site that says this is a horrible full moon.

    Thank you so much for taking time to reply. It doesn’t take much to freak me out !!!

    And, fyi, my husband got the Astra Zeneca and had a slightly sore arm and other than that – he sailed right through it !!!

    The rest of the post resonates as well – in particular we are currently a few provinces apart 🙂

    Thanks again Jamie 🙂

  5. From time to time I tune into Jamie’s erudite and always informative site here, and just want to say that this beautiful Full Pink Supermoon may be challenging, but aren’t they all, in the sense that Full Moons bring everything to fruition.
    Remember to go out and breathe in the majesty of the spring night sky with the Queen sailing through it in all of her silvery (pink ;)🌺 glory, and feel blessed to release all your burdens on the exhale.
    Be the light and love… for yourself, your loved ones, and the beautiful blue planet that we all call home. 💛

  6. Saturn is about consequences, and the South node is currently transiting Sagittarius truth.

    Like the immediate times we live in, difficult Full Moon and a Pluto stationary retrograde, there will be consequences for speaking truth. Better to lie low, play golf for instance, cheat willfully, pad the scorecard. Afterwards, burn it in the fireplace.
