I planted this azalea more in part sun (I think last year) it did not bloom this spring. Can I transplant it to a more shadier area now or wait until fall?

It's best to transplant azaleas when they are not actively growing - late fall or early spring. If you move it now it's likely to defoliate to some degree which will keep the roots from collecting and storing energy for growth. And, azaleas spend the summer months developing flower buds for the next spring's floral display. You'll interrupt the process if you dig and move it now. I'd wait. Hope it blooms for you next year.
