Category: Moon Cycles Written by Jamie Partridge
The 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 April 2021 Astrology
The new moon on April 11, 2021, at 22°24′ Aries makes aspects to six of the eight planets. But only the two strongest have been highlighted in the chart below. The new moon is at the midpoint of Mars trine Jupiter which creates an abundance of positive energy as well as good fortune.
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.  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.
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. 
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. 
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. 
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. 
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.
