April 2021 Astrology Forecast

April 2021 Astrology Forecast

In episode 297 of the podcast astrologers Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan look at the astrological forecast for April 2021.

The astrology of April features a shift of inner planets into the fire sign Aries, where Mars went retrograde in the second half of last year, as well as a New Moon in the same sign.

The later part of the month features a shift of planets into the earth sign Taurus where they meet up with Uranus, as well as Mars moving from Gemini into Cancer, and a Full Moon in Scorpio.

We spend the first 90 minutes talking about the April forecast, and then discuss some miscellaneous topics like how astrologers process after doing a consultation, and The Astrology Podcast celebrating 300 episodes.

This episode is available in both audio and video versions below.

  • As we slow down this month, coming from Venus enlightened realizations, use the mind generously. When angry thoughts and passionate ideas show up as we enter the battle of the mind, caring actions will do. Renewal to purify emotional complexes needs courage, and flowing with deep change can illuminate the shadow with the wisdom that arises from the experience. Caring actions to nurture life will do. As a hierophant of the mysteries, Enlightening the cosmic nature of humanity gives the astrologer the privilege to be a mirror of light, and dissolve the ego one chart at a time. To not talk about it is the gift we give each soul that allows us to travel their sky with them, noble silence is a virtue. Thank you for your service. You three were rocking it this podcast! May it be of benefit to many and bring you happiness, harmony, real peace and freedom from all suffering. Wonderful! Blessed be.

  • Hello!

    First of all, I just want to say how much I appreciate your podcast. I’m a new astrologer and have learned so much from just this source. I have a very rambunctious dog who needs a lot of exercise so I walk a lot… now I walk and learn. I’m sort of an academic type so your approach really works for me.

    The other reason for my message is that I was just listening to the above episode and wanted to comment on the Mars in Cancer part. I have a 28 year old son who has this placement in his natal chart. It’s conjunct his MC and square to Jupiter – which I know you mentioned as a mitigating factor (but I don’t remember anything about what aspects – and I kinda doubt you were referring to a square.

    He’s not into astrology so I know this isn’t conscious so I thought I’d share how I see it unfolding (so far) in his life.

    After he graduated from college with a degree in ecology, he and his girlfriend decided they wanted to live in a Spanish speaking country where they could afford to live and do meaningful work.

    They got jobs in a K-12 school in Chiapas, Mexico – not far from the Guatemalan border. He was a science teacher. After teachers in Chiapas and Oaxaca started getting shot while striking, they decided that it was time to leave. From there, he went to a Franciscan migrant refuge on the Guatemalan border where he volunteered for a couple months. He says that emotionally, this was the hardest work he’s ever done. When he left there, he rejoined his girlfriend in Mexico City where they worked for separate legal organizations that serve migrants trying to get into the US – also as volunteers.

    When he returned to the US, he got a job doing ecological restoration work on the Elwha river (On the Olympic Peninsula where the big dam was removed several years back). Then he got a job with a fancy ecological consulting firm in Seattle.

    About 2 years ago, he quit that job and took a massive pay cut to take a job with Soccer Without Borders (his first and abiding love is for that game). So now he coaches and mentors immigrant boys and girls from around the world. At one point in time he drove all over the city picking up and dropping off kids so they could play soccer. During the time when school was entirely online he ended up doing a lot more mentoring and social work type work – helping immigrant families find money for rent etc. Now he’s coaching in person again and he’s much happier.

    He has a Pisces Sun, Aries Moon and Libra Rising.

    His girlfriend is a caseworker with Kids in Need of Defense and basically harasses ICE for a living. I don’t know her chart other than that she has a Scorpio sun at the anaretic degree. Her family is Sephardic Jewish – she’s literally living into mitigating her lineage of exile and migration. They’re both seriously committed to the work of social justice.

    So while Mars in Cancer might be a difficult placement in general, this is my most intimate experience of it and it’s pretty beautiful.

    I also have a good friend with Mars in Cancer and it’s not as magnanimous.
