How have the last 12 months been for you? Has 2023 passed in a happy haze, or are you ready to run screaming into 2024? Either way, a brand new year means we have the opportunity to reflect, refresh, and reset. It’s time to make high resolutions…and what better way to do it than through astrology? I mean, why would you read that any other way?

Anticipating the major astrological events of 2024, as well as the major themes each zodiac sign should expect, will help you plan and prepare. Don’t you want 2024 to be the best year yet, filled with love, abundance and exciting opportunities appearing out of nowhere?! At the very least, you’ll want to mark your calendar for Mercury retrograde so you can become a scapegoat as a result.

Without further ado, your 2024 astrological overview.

From March 23 to June 11, 2023, we had a brief glimpse of Pluto – the planet of large-scale transformation – in Aquarius. The last air sign of the zodiac, Aquarius is associated with fairness, humanity and collective care as well as technology, revolution and rebellion. Interestingly, because Pluto moves incredibly slowly (it takes 248 years to complete one orbit), until March 23, 2023, this distant celestial body had not crossed into the domain of Aquarius since the late 1990s. 1700, which means that astrologers can only imagine what the full extent of Pluto’s journey through Aquarius will yield. Will we see radical changes in government this year that truly support the masses rather than the very rich? Or will we experience an AI takeover that views humans as useless? Only time will tell ! But this year, from January 20 to September 1, and then again starting November 19, Pluto will begin to reveal what’s coming soon. This is a great opportunity for you to think about the systems in your life that you use. transform and revolutionize. Perhaps your relationship with money and success is changing? Or maybe the way you see and behave towards others changes? Or maybe it’s less about external variables and more about yourself – you relate to the world differently than before. Either way, now is a great time to start taking inventory of how Pluto illuminates personal and collective growth.

One of the most talked about astrological events in 2024 is the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction. During a conjunction, two planets meet at the exact same point in the sky, merging their archetypes and generating a powerful burst of energy. On April 20, Jupiter (the planet of expansion) and Uranus (the planet of innovation) join forces at 21° Taurus. The first earth sign of the zodiac, Taurus is associated with the material world, particularly food, finance and the environment. Since 2018, rebellious Uranus has been shaking up the domain of Taurus, generating enormous economic fluctuations and serious climatic disruptions. It’s not every day that Jupiter and Uranus meet; in fact, these planets haven’t formed a conjunction since 2011 (and haven’t met in Taurus since May 1941, 83 years ago). Since Jupiter amplifies everything it touches, astrologers (including today’s society) expect massive changes in global finance and climate activism to correspond with this rare and important event. To prepare for the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, locate where 21st Taurus is located in your birth chart (to do this, use a birth chart calculator like the TimePassages app or Astro.com), specifically identifying which house it is in. it illuminates. This will reveal the area of ​​your life in which this powerful transit is occurring. For example, if it’s in your Third House of Communication, it can shake things up on an interpersonal level. Or if it is in your 12th House of Psyche, you may receive powerful psychic messages during this time. No matter where it lands, its impact is guaranteed!

Shortly after Jupiter connects with Uranus, it begins a 12-month journey through a completely new star sign. Whichever zodiac sign Jupiter occupies, it is sure to be imbued with luck and fortune in the coming year… and starting May 20, 2024, these blessings will be received by Gemini – the sign associated with curiosity, communication, networks and connections. Gemini is the social butterfly of the zodiac, which means we can all expect to feel a little more outgoing, optimistic, and cheerful in the year ahead. This transit comes with a caveat, however: Jupiter is considered to be at its detriment in Gemini, meaning the planet of expansion will function a bit suboptimal. While Jupiter is all about large-scale philosophy and the big picture, Gemini tends to focus on nuance and detail. In other words, make sure that bright distractions don’t take your attention away from the bigger picture. Keep your eyes on the prize!

As you probably know, eclipses are very important because they activate the north and south nodes, which are linked to destiny. In 2023, we began to unfold a new series of eclipses on the Aries-Libra axis (to refresh your memory, these took place on April 20 and October 14). In 2024, this story continues with three eclipses in Aries-Libra (mark your calendars for March 25, April 8, and October 2, 2024). The Aries-Libra series is all about self-reliance and partnership, so expect major changes to occur in these areas of life.

Additionally, on September 18, 2024, we will experience the first eclipse of a whole new series through Virgo-Pisces. Virgo and Pisces are all about routine and structure as well as healing and spirituality. These signs remind us that wellness is about more than face masks and bubble baths: true healing is a deep, soul-directed quest. The last time we experienced eclipses on the Virgo-Pisces axis was between 2015 and 2017, so think about what happened in your life during this two-year period: it’s possible that some themes , plots or stories resurface…especially those that haven’t been resolved.

About every two years we experience one of the world’s most thorny, irritating, and prickly retrogrades—no, not Mercury retrograde (it happens all the time, darling). I’m talking about Mars retrograde. Mars is associated with action, determination, libido and aggression; it is motivation, vitality and our spirited will. At the end of the year (starting December 6 and continuing through 2025), Mars will move backwards into Leo, the zodiac sign associated with passion, visibility, and larger-than-life theatricality. Given that this downgrade signals toughness, we should expect major slowdowns in late 2024. That’s not necessarily a bad thing – in fact, it may be exactly what we need. After all, if we continue to move forward without examining, reflecting, or reevaluating, how do we know we are still moving in the right direction? So if you’re pursuing a certain goal — whether it’s professional, romantic, or something else — don’t be surprised if you receive an illuminated glimpse during Mars retrograde.

We’re no strangers to Mercury retrogrades: they’re quarterly events, after all! And in 2024, we will face four of these cosmic slowdowns: from December 13, 2023 to January 1, 2024; From April 1 to April 25; from August 5 to August 28; and from November 25 to December 15. As always, when the planet of fast messengers begins to retreat, we should expect communication breakdowns, transportation delays, technological disruptions, and all manner of social media issues. Note that Mercury retrogrades in 2024 all occur in the fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), meaning these particular celestial events will compromise our passion, fun, and play. Even though it may seem incredibly frustrating (um, it will), it’s also an opportunity to get organized, establish structure and determine what you really need to achieve your goals. It’s time to take your intentions from fantasy to reality…and it’s going to take a little Mercury retrograde elbow grease!
