Full Moon 23, April 2024 – Power Struggles

Full Moon April 2024 Astrology

The full moon in Scorpio on April 23, 2024, is square Pluto. In April 2024 astrology, the full moon symbolizes overcoming intense feelings, compulsive behavior and power struggles.

The recent Jupiter-Uranus conjunction also affects the April 2024 full moon. It brings self-awareness and opportunities for emotional growth, spiritual development and more harmonious relationships.

Full Moon April 2024 Horoscope

The full moon on Tuesday, April 23, 2024, is at 04°17′ Scorpio. This is a challenging moon phase because the most significant astrological influence comes from a tense square aspect to Pluto. The black “S” under the glyph for Pluto indicates it is stationary. Pluto turns retrograde on May 2, adding to its power.

Jupiter conjunct Uranus climaxed on April 20, but it is still effective because the orb is under one degree. It has a positive influence on the full moon astrology. Two beneficial fixed stars also improve the outlook for the next two weeks.

Full Moon April 2024 Astrology

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 climax with the April 2024 Full Moon. So, use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an honest and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Pluto Intensity

Full Moon square Pluto makes your feelings more intense and challenging to control. This may result in a personal crisis or emotional power struggles with family or intimate friends. Obsessive and compulsive behavior, manipulation, abruptness, jealousy and guilt-tripping are possible. In extreme cases, cruelty, bullying, sexual abuse or domestic violence may be involved.

This full moon may reveal deeply buried emotions, fears, memories and secrets. This may be painful or embarrassing, but getting them out of your subconscious is healing. Conscious awareness will help deal with other dark areas of human nature, such as bigotry, racism, fears and phobias, addiction and sexual problems.

Whatever Pluto exposes, the challenge can become an opportunity to grow and evolve. You can gain valuable psychological insights about yourself and relationship dynamics. Bad habits, behaviors and beliefs can be eliminated, positively transforming your emotions and relationships.


Jupiter conjunct Uranus brings exciting surprises and sudden opportunities. Greater flexibility and open-mindedness can lead to creative breakthroughs and solutions to old problems. A sudden financial windfall, promotion, or romance is possible. Expanding consciousness can lead to increased self-awareness and enlightenment. Amazing revelations are also likely.

The Constellations

The full moon in April 2024 is in the Sign of Scorpio, but as the star map below shows, it is located in the Constellation of Virgo. The Signs and the Constellations do not match up. Over the last 2000 years, the Constellations have moved nearly 30° out of alignment with the Signs because of the precession of the equinoxes.

The Zodiac was invented only as a measuring device. The degrees on the ecliptic line in the image below equate to those in the full moon horoscope. I use the Fixed Star and Constellation like the ancient astrologers, not the Signs and Houses of modern astrology.

Full Moon April 2024 Meaning

Full Moon April 2024 [Stellarium]

Delta Boötis is labeled Thiba in Stellarium. In astrology, it is called Princeps.

  • 03♏30 – Delta Boötis, Princeps
  • 04♏08 – Iota Virginis, Syrma
  • 04♏10 – 31824 Elatus
  • 04♏17 – Full Moon April 2024
  • 04♏50 – Kappa Virginis, Kang

The Virgin

Fixed star Syrma is a fortunate star that was said to be prominent in the birth charts of the prophets Mohammed and Moses. [1] It signifies the heavy personal responsibility implicit in the occult questing and acquisition of spiritual power and the Islamic concept of Istighafar (the act of seeking forgiveness from Allah). [2]

The Moon in the Virgo Constellation gives a receptive and analytical mind, retentive memory, a dislike for flattery and ostentation, a retiring nature, fluency in speech, an acute sense of one’s worth, a wish to be of service and finding importance in details.

Harshly aspected (square Pluto), it can give an unfunny wit, a lack of self-confidence and a ‘carping’ attitude. You may become timid, a perfectionist but blind to more important matters or ideas, and too critical, generally over nothing important. [3]

Fixed star Princeps gives a keen, studious, and profound mind with the ability for research. [4] Resourceful, conservative, somewhat fearful. [3]

With Moon: The ability to start from small beginnings and gain success in business, foreign, legal and public matters. The ability to overcome any obstacle. Premonitions are possible but not necessarily psychic ability.

Constellation Boötes the Herdsman gives prosperity from work, strong desires, a tendency to excess, a fondness for rural pursuits, and some liking for occultism. [4]

Asteroid Elatus

The asteroid Elatus is named after a centaur from Greek mythology. He was killed in a battle when a poisoned arrow passed through his arm before wounding Chiron.

Astrologically, Elatus represents self-realization through creative work and writing, ego development or lack thereof, and the feeling of invincibility. It is fortunate for fated events. “I can always survive everything – or perhaps not?” [5]

Full Moon April 2024 Meaning

Pluto has the most influence on the full moon in April 2024 astrology. It brings intense feelings, compulsive behavior and power struggles. However, Jupiter conjunct Uranus brings self-awareness and realization of the destructive influence of Pluto on your subconscious.

The fixed stars in the Virgo Constellation also help you better understand your inner psychology and overcome obstacles. Finally, the asteroid Elatus continues the theme of wounding and healing from the solar eclipse on April 8.

So, the April 2024 full moon is ideal for questioning outdated beliefs and eliminating bad habits. Challenges can be turned into opportunities for positive transformations, such as emotional growth, spiritual development and more harmonious relationships.

Moon Phases

The influence of the April 23 full moon lasts two weeks up to the May 7 new moon. Astrologically, a Full Moon is influenced by the preceding new moon. The April 8 new moon was a total solar eclipse, precisely conjunct Chiron. But positively linked to Jupiter, it brings more healing than wounding and promotes a spiritual awakening.

If the full moon in April 2024 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. I have Chiron at 4°30 Taurus, and things are not good now. Precisely the day of this lunation is my dad’s death anniversary.

  2. Fixed square with natal Uranus opp Chiron. Shaking head. Just don’t know. But it reminds me not only is pluto moving to opp Uranus. Pluto also moving to conj with Chiron.

    I am not much of an emoter. But awoke realizing I was screaming at the top of my lungs in the dream I was having. So loud it woke me up. 🤣

  3. Full Moon with Scorpio void of course Moon transit, 25 April
    The moon won’t be void until the early evening EST, about 9 hours.

    Add stars Pherkad major and minor, opposite Nashira.

    Putting on a quintile cap. The fire does down. Perhaps a shot of a flaming hermit this evening? if you’re in Hyder, AK, or wish it so.

    Part of Fortune moves off the descendant, conjunct Jupiter -Uranus. One can weave a lot of lore, and Gore; a a grip on a hockey stick, score!


  4. Flaming Hermit, a hymn and her

    Across the street from Hopa
    A nuclear reactor born,
    My hometown builds them tougher
    Than the Sun early morn.

    Many years they operate
    Tube bending still go on,
    Culture at its richest
    When Makemake write the songs

    Conspiracy entertainer
    Air trine on the air,
    Takes a pinata smashing
    Dark side solar flare

    The glare, the glare, the glare,
    goxi solar flare

    Roses and Orchids team up
    High grade the Artwork mime,
    Pen screenplays for cartoon broadcasts
    Bouquets never a dime

    Never a dime, a dime, a dime
    30 crypto wine

    Step on the Helium dontcha gals
    Get us off this far side muse,
    Instruments giving strange readings
    Oscillation in the news.

  5. Hi Jamie!
    It’s deeply TRUE.This time,you will get the Real definition of Power Struggles.
    Won’t you ask that Who is Responsible for such situations??

    Answer: Taker.
    The taker is responsible for such situations.
    Communication is a two ways process.
    Not One side.
    So, this time,it will NOT BE EASY to COMPROMISE or you will get the Answers or Solutions EASILY.
    IF Taker will communicate the issues wholeheartedly then the Answer/Solutions WILL Come.
    Amswers mean the Solutions of Prolonged Unresolved Issues of Past.

  6. With the adage, ‘Bench and Bullpen win the pennant’ one could easily ascribe the saying to the Giants-Dodger, 3 Oct 1951, “Giants win the Pennant! ” and ‘shot year around the world’


    To end the game at 3:58 pm est, Bobby Thomson three-run homers Ralph Branca.

    Chart look familiar?

    Where bowling becomes baseball

    The article includes an intrigue that, daresay, return of external comet 12P Pons-Brook ‘madhatter’?

    “What happened to put Thomson and Branca together on center stage? Why were so many people caught up in this daily struggle with such passion? Or, to put it more formally, what is the relevant context that will help us to understand why it is still discussed so widely half a century later?”

    • 3:58 pm, 3 October 1951

      The chart is derived from the scheduled beginning of the game, 1:30 pm plus the duration 2:58.

      There is a video analogue time showing 4:03 +

      Astrologers would suggest angular momentum played a part in the drama. As Thomson and Branca set for battle. Add time for Thomson to position from the on -deck, go 0-1 and a second Branca pitch. Angular momentum easily consumes 5 minutes, but where does it come from? The simple answer is first pitch at 1:35pm, not unusual. Angular momentum builds from the start of the official start of game and becomes enormous.

      With this example, today we’re fortunate to have an astrology looking glass. Angular momentum in the presented charts; USA student protests, Niagara Falls navigation song — Canada House of Commons debacle, and even the battle with Artificial Intelligence while I post.

  7. I received an automated message from Google. Terms of service and such. So I thought it might have something to do with the Video, and asked Jamie to remove the link… Which also appears to be an automated service.

    • In terms of the art, the video shows unequivocally the comedy and tragedy in our descendants, a mirror to today, Moon void of course, 9:28 am est

      • Looking at the Aquarius Moon void chart with Cosmogenesis

        Uranus conj Midheaven, with Sun transit 12Tau46 , and Vertex transit 14Tau30.

        thank you Jamie for jumping my memory. Numerology of May 2, (5 + 2 =7), and June 1, ( 6 + 1 = 7), of course combined = 14.

        And one can run with Cosmogenesis further if your focus is on Student protest, as several havent forgotten six months ago ‘defending the defenseless’, and ‘clash of the titans’. re: vertex

  8. Jamie, I’ve evacuated to the beach. Dunkirk chart … shore to ship, shore to ship, under attack, 56 units AI technology closing in…

    • Dunkirk memory, operation Dynamo climax, 1 June 1940, 7:00 pm UT
      Transit 2 May 2024, 7:00 pm UT

      June 1st 2024 is said to be the climax of Dunkirk Evacuation operation.
      One can see the near transit of Uranus. Dunkirk Moon conjunct Sedna, Apex yod, Asc sextile Neptune.


      Moon transit Aquarius void of Course, to keep things in perspective.

  9. How many sevens do you see?

    56 units of AI ( 8 x 7)
    2 dates that numeralize to 7 (2 x 7)
    2 chart times, 7:00 pm (2 x 7)

    84, or 12 x 7

    using three different gathering points, we stylize the circuit of the planets at issue, Sun and Uranus
