New Moon April 11, 2021 – Fortune Favors the Brave

New Moon April 2021 AstrologyThe Aries new moon on Sunday, April 11, 2021, is at the midpoint of Mars trine Jupiter. So the spiritual meaning of the new moon April 2021 astrology relates to using courage and good judgment to take advantage of opportunities for growth.

However, the April 2021 new moon receives quite the opposite energy from a fixed star associated with inhibition, reserve, and misfortune. So this is a particularly good new moon to overcome personal limitations like shyness and depression. It is also good for breaking through other barriers to progress and success.

New Moon Meaning

Sun conjunct Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

New Moon Aspects

Sun sextile Mars gives a boost to your confidence, strength, and courage. So this is an excellent new moon for physical activities like exercise, manual labor, and competitive activities like sports and business.

Personal relationships, especially those of an intimate nature will benefit from your extra warmth, charm, and charisma. Your sex drive will be strong and others will find you more sexually attractive than normal.

Sun sextile Jupiter brings optimism, good luck, and happiness. So new moon April 2021 is excellent for starting new projects and reaching your goals. There should be little or no resistance and others will be generous and hospitable toward you.

This is a moon phase of material and spiritual growth with opportunities to increase your wealth. You could also expand your horizons through further education or travel.

Mars trine Jupiter brings a strong desire to compete to win. Almost any action you start will turn out to be successful. This is the right time for decisive actions, making important decisions, taking the lead, and increasing your wealth.

You can count on courage and good judgment to take advantage of any opportunities for personal, material or spiritual growth. This is an especially good new moon for dating and improving existing relationships.

Minor Grand Trine

The blue triangle highlighted in the New Moon April 2021 astrology chart is called a minor grand trine aspect pattern. The Hubers call blue aspect patterns Talent Triangles. [1] They give a lot of reserves and indicate an abundance of available abilities, competence, expressiveness, soulfulness, and striving for harmony.

The minor grand trine makes you more conscious of the opportunities that will naturally be presented to you. It gives an extra measure of intelligence and objectivity, which help you present your abilities to others in a more competent manner. It instills a clear ability to communicate effectively with others. It also gives a very specific kind of logic that helps you get your projects up and running.

New Moon Stars

New Moon April 2021 is in the Sign of Aries. But as the star map below shows, it is in the Constellation of Pisces. This discrepancy is due to the precession of the equinoxes. It has moved the Sun Signs almost a whole Sign (30 degrees) out of alignment with the Constellations from which they were named over 2000 years ago.

And while the new moon is within the constellation Pisces, it aligns most closely with a fixed star in the constellation Cetus. Baten Kaitos, Zeta Ceti, is located in the belly of the sea monster, or whale.

New Moon April 2021 [Stellarium]

Fixed star Baten Kaitos at 22°14′ Aries is of the nature of Saturn. It gives compulsory transportation, change or emigration, misfortune by force or accident, shipwreck but also rescue, falls and blows. [2]

Saturnine properties such as inhibition, reserve, caution, solitude, and simplicity often are forced onto people either by a mundane power or a higher power. Sometimes ideas are propagated which makes life trying or troublesome. Fate is usually one of change. Baten Kaitos gives a tendency to depression or to dwell on the thought of death. Life often is full of humiliation, renunciation and obstacles. But the position of the complete chart is always important. [3]

Baten Kaitos often does mark where someone becomes stuck with a situation for some little while, perhaps from their folly. But with good aspects, they should emerge with some benefit to count for the experience, even honor from it. [4]

Constellation Cetus the Whale is said to cause laziness and idleness, but to confer an emotional and charitable nature, with the ability to command, especially in war. Makes one amiable, prudent, happy by sea and land, and helps to recover lost goods. [2]

New Moon April 2021 Summary

The April 11 new moon is at the midpoint of Mars trine Jupiter, the focal point of a minor grand trine. This means all the positive energy, initiative, courage, sexiness, and good fortune of Mars trine Jupiter is amplified through the new moon.

However, the fixed star aligned with new moon April 2020 is associated with misfortune, obstacles, inhibition and reserve. These Saturn qualities are quite the opposite of Mars trine Jupiter. This combination of a shy and depressing star with outgoing and optimistic aspects is a unique opportunity, especially for people with a planet around the new moon degree of 22 Aries.

Firstly, if you are shy or are suffering from depression, this new moon gives you the chance to make a brave new start. This is a great opportunity to leave your comfort zone and come out of your shell. You can use the courage, enthusiasm, initiative and good luck from Mars trine Jupiter to break the Saturnine shackles of inhibition, pessimism, and loneliness.

Secondly, the dynamic new moon April 2021 astrology aspects can be used to break through barriers that may have stood in your way for a very long time. This is an excellent new moon to overcome external limitations and obstacles. You can also overcome a fear of failure or a fear of success. This is a particularly good new moon to start your own business or ask someone out on a date. Fortune favors the brave this moon phase.

The effects of the April 11 new moon last for four weeks up to the May 11 new moon. And the best time for new starts is during the waxing moon phase, from April 11 to the April 26 full moon.

  1. Being brave reposting this …

    from rebellion New Moon Oct 31, 2020

    “There was a confluence of human activity early in Libra, as the tendency with this sign is to Merge. So the virus smash us again. My Bells Palsy condition flared up. When it does I know the virus is moving. My antidote is to spend more time in Natural isolation. ”

    antidote = essential activity!


  2. If the signs are not right, does that mean the planet alignments are also not right? Is this al just ancient history being replayed over and over again from ancient books? Is there anything listed here that you can really say is true to the sky at all? Because people are believing this, and when a large amount of the population believes the same thing, it makes it happen. So, what exactly is being manifested here, and is it really a step forward for humanity or just another version of repeating a limited and historical past of destruction? Is the moon really in Aries? Is mars really trining Jupiter? And if not, why do you keep saying they are? Don’t you think you have a duty of care to explain that this is not really true? I see that you do mention the shift in equinoxes which is great considering most astrologers are still ignoring this. But much still needs to be done before there’s anything ethical about this. Lies are lies.

  4. Three Charts multi-composite

    2. Brave New Moon, April 11, 2021
    3. Henge proclamations epiphany, January 8, 2021

    Before looking at the three in composite, note the Natal and Brave New Moon synastry.

    Note the complex midpoint stellium at the Mid Heaven

    Part of Fortune, natal, 24Tau13
    Part of Fortune, brave, 22Sco42

    POF opposition directs us to the Henge Proclamation… review Capitol Riot thread.

    This is a remarkable chart. Welcome to The Proof of the Henge, fortune favors the brave..

  5. Yes but people, it’s occurring opposite Spica and with Venus, so this mix portends double great benevolent fortune across the skies and tips the scales way in favor! Bates K’s been nearly opposite Spica for eons unknown, yet Spica’s great goodness manifests throughout time in spite of it. And with Venus also conjunct, it’s a wonderful, sweet message in the sky!
    Thank you Heaven!

    • Hi Vonnie. That is a great point. More exactly, Xi Cephei, Kurda, now at 2429 Aries is opposite Spica at 2408 Libra and Arcturus at 2431 Libra. This is at least as important an axis as Aldebaran/Antares and Sirius/Vega. It is certainly the most fortunate axis.

    Add Neptune to the Aquarius pile. Uranus and Pluto now frame the pitch. Looks like a game of Polo or Football? The key: follow the green aspect and align the head or pigskin with the ascendant? This game might last a Precessionary few days, so pack a lunch to the stadium.

  8. I’m going to be a coward, post a Sidereal chart of the Natal/New Moon synastry, with Spica, and run away….

    We’ve ARCed Tropical and Sidereal.

  9. I can’t wait to see what happens around this new moon since I have Chiron at 22 Aries 18′.

  10. Hi Jamie, I have the 5th house on Aries at 22 degrees 03. What might this entail? I also read that the 22nd degree can portend major loss and a long period of grief. This is true of my life. A major loss 14 years ago has defined my life ever since. Also the lives of my children. Do you think that makes sense with this placement? And if so could this new moon bring positive change???

  11. My Universe, my Mars is at 20° Aries and Venus 19° Aries. My grand trine is becoming more and more activated through my transits. It’s been nothing but brutal! Everytime I ask for help on here I am ignored so I will just wait and see what goes forth from the Divine. Thankful for a higher Spiritual path that listens and hears. Buh bye nasty ass government. Bono sings about Elvis presley and America. It’s beautiful, listen to it.

  12. New moon conjunct node here. Very karmic but exciting nevertheless. Can’t wait for anything to shake up a somewhat boring heavy earth influence in my chart with fire and air quality from this aspect.

  13. You cracked a smile on my face. My midheaven is at 22.12 Aries so conjunct Bates K and I feel this fixed star quite a lot in m career /public life. I have not felt the goodness of Spica for a while…but let’s hope I will soon see it.

  14. Hi Jamie, my midheaven is at 22.12 and new moon will also square natal Venus at 19.12 and opposing natal Pluto at 19.56 Libra. It will also trine natal Neptune at 19.54 Saggitarius and north Node at 20 in Leo. Maybe it makes an aspect with Jupiter at 17.14 in Virgo. Would the opposing and square aspects be stronger than the trines in this case? Would the opposing and square aspects reduce the positiveness of this new moon.
    I have been feeling lot of obstacles lately. I have had some very hard years can I see a change with this new moon?

    At this site, you can look up any degree and get a meaning for it, but remember to round UP to the next degree – thus to look up your fifth house, use 23 degrees Aries, the 22nd was already passed by, and the transiting planet is highlighting the upcoming one. Once an aspect has passed a degree, the influence falls away rapidly from it and the upcoming one gets the spotlight on it that becomes brighter and brighter.
    That’s why it’s way better to act before an aspect you want to emphasize in something, than after it became exact, if that’s possible. And the fifth house rules recreation, and children, and vacations and fun, so an event fourteen years ago would hardly apply, unless the event was something that happened related to a child.
    And remember, in astrology, nothing is absolute, and strong things occur at the upcoming New Moon that will greatly offset any negative undertones. It may even help you heal any events and sorrow from this part of your life fourteen years ago. Perhaps you could contact someone and get a chart done for that event that has caused so much grief and begin to understand the root causes of the incident.
    And having only good aspects all the time would be just like living in Florida or Hawaii, where the temperature never changed and the days become jaded and no deviation, same old thing all the time, no heavy blankets or snuggling in front of a warm fire when it’s freezing outside! We need variety in our lives, I believe, for us to thrive. If we all liked the same thing and looked the same, life would quickly get boring!
    When I was young I read Jacqueline Bigar’s horoscope in my Dad’s morning newspaper every morning, an at the end it always said, “Remember, the stars impel, they do not compel. What you make of your life is largely up to you!!!!”

  16. Hi Vonnie- thanks so much for your answer- very kind of you. I shall look up the site you recommend. I have only just discovered that degrees themselves have meaning! Yes I agree life is largely what you make it. I understand profoundly now that death is woven through the fabric of our lives and this has given me a privileged perspective in many ways. The hardest thing was that the children lost their father at such a young age. It was hard at first not to compare their experience to their peers. But they have grown up into very compassionate people and I am so very proud of them.
