How every astrological event in 2024 impacts your zodiac sign

Published

on

In more ways than one, 2023 was a transitional time: it introduced energies that will continue to be present for the next twenty years. The biggest developments of 2023 involving technology, media, AI, and space infrastructure were just the beginning—and in 2024, you can expect these themes to become even more exciting and apparent.

Due to Saturn’s entrance into Pisces at the beginning of March 2023, boundaries were a huge theme of 2023. This trend continues in 2024, when knowing where other people end and where you begin is crucial to maintaining healthy professional (as well as personal!) connections.

At a personal level, many people will continue to release relationships that dim their light, due to the Lunar North Node of Destiny remaining in individualistic Aries. Instead of wanting to please others, the cosmos are inspiring all the signs to chase the goals that truly resonate. This deep hunger for seeking personal sovereignty began in the summer of 2023 and will last until mid-January of 2025.

Overall, the year ahead offers the opportunity to get back in touch with your inner power, and the vehicles to get there involve deeply healing your past, embracing freedom, and adopting a completely new life philosophy—one that adapts to the challenges of our time. That mental upgrade arrives as a gift from the retrogrades of Mercury, which in 2024 happen in fire signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

Read on for a full, complete breakdown of every astrological happening in 2024.

January 2024

Mercury goes direct on the first day of the year, slowly dissolving the confusion that has plagued all the signs for the past three weeks. The first part of January functions as a long throwback into the past, as “the future” promises to arrive when both the Sun and Pluto enter futuristic Aquarius. January’s astrology is a reminder that it is now time to take your power back.

  • January 1: Mercury goes direct – Mercury goes direct today, making the first week of the year ideal for planning out your 2024 goals. Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, and Gemini will feel the most relieved.
  • January 11: New Moon in Capricorn – One of the luckiest new moons of 2024, this inspires all the signs to think about their long-term career goals as well as their life’s overall legacy. It’s now the appropriate time to think about how your 2024 resolutions fit your five- or even ten-year plan. Be firm and ambitious!
  • January 20: Pluto & Sun enter Aquarius – Visionary moments are set to arrive over the next month as the world begins to shift. A new paradigm is unfolding, and everyone is being asked to shift their mindset towards the future—especially those who are a Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius.
  • January 25: Full Moon in Leo – You’re seeking attention and feeling rebellious, and must search for an outlet for your high-energy demeanour without acting too impulsively. Creativity, big aha moments, and nice surprises are available to those who are searching for inspiration and personal growth.

February 2024

Being one of the only two months of 2024 in which all planets are direct (the other one is March), February clears the way for everyone to follow through on their New Year’s resolutions. Acting on your most cherished dreams—especially around the February 9 New Moon—can set you up for success in the long run. This month, you’re feeling inspired to let go of the fear of the past and embrace radical change as you look into the future.

  • February 9: Mercury enters Aquarius – With the planet of communication in its strongest place in the sky until February 21, you can think clearly and objectively, and make serious headway in any communication-related projects. You get special help from Mercury if you are an Aquarius, Libra, or Gemini.
  • February 14: Mars conjunct Pluto in Aquarius – The days surrounding this date brim with intensity, so it’s key to speak, move, and act with full awareness. Power plays involving authority figures will take place, so make sure to dodge interactions with domineering people. On the flip side, this aspect is great for focusing on passion projects.
  • February 18: Sun enters Pisces – For the next four weeks, a magical mindset takes over as the universe accentuates the world of dreams, imagination, and mysticism. If you can truly envision something and work towards it, you can bring it to reality—especially if you’re a Pisces, Scorpio, or Cancer.
  • February 24: Full Moon in Virgo – Dare to abandon what’s not working and focus on what is. Bringing a deeply healing tone to the end of the month, this lunation is a reminder that to grow in the right direction, you must sometimes embrace contraction. Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, and Sagittarius will feel this the most.

March 2024

March begins with a serious tone as you are reminded that, to make your dreams come true, you must work hard at them. Harness your ambition during the first ten days of the month, as the vibe will begin intensifying after the March 10 New Moon in Pisces. Eclipse season begins during the second part of March, which is set to bring massive change into your life through mid-April.

  • March 10: New Moon in Pisces – Bringing a triple dose of dreamy energy, this lunation will have you feeling a bit foggy. Overcome any feelings of confusion by embracing mystical practices like meditation, dreamwork, and positive visualization. If you are a Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, or Sagittarius, try resting more and doing less now.
  • March 11: Venus enters Pisces – With the planet of pleasure, art, and money in its absolute favorite sign until April 3, your love life will resemble a fairy tale. Since this transit overlaps with eclipse season, fated encounters with old soul mates could also be in the cards—especially if you’re a Pisces, Sagittarius, Scorpio, or Capricorn.
  • March 20: Sun enters Aries & Spring Equinox – Being the very beginning of the astrological year, this day carries fortunate and initiatory energy! The steps that you take now could direct you to a mine of gold later in the year, so make it a point to begin something you feel passionate about.
  • March 25: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra – Following up on one of the energetic themes of the year, this eclipse naturally clears away the relationships that no longer feel aligned with your values. This phenomenon affects the cardinal signs—Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn—the most.

April 2024

The first Mercury retrograde overlaps with the first of two eclipse seasons this year, making April a month of major personal and collective transformation. Going with the flow and bettering the way you express your masculine energy (regardless of your gender identity!) is what helps you flow with the universal currents at play this month. Once the Sun enters Taurus on April 19, the intensity slowly begins to dissipate.

  • April 1: Mercury goes retrograde in Aries – The first 2024 Mercury retrograde arrives today! Lasting until April 25, it will lead you to review the ways you express ambition, anger, and your own sense of individuality. Those who embrace deep healing can come out as winners.
  • April 8: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries – Doors open and close for all zodiac signs at this intense eclipse. The themes that come up now will be relevant for the rest of the year, so pay attention, as you might notice repetition when autumn arrives.
  • April 20: Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Taurus – This rare conjunction will magnify the need to seek freedom and embrace radical personal change. If you’re a Taurus, Gemini, Leo, or Libra, you could experience an unexpected raise, a promotion, or more financial gains in real estate or other investments.
  • April 23: Full Moon in Scorpio – Affecting the fixed signs—Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius—at a deeper level, this lunation has everyone exploring the boundaries around power, renewal, and deep transformation. Those who dare to dive below the surface could find the answer to subconscious patterns that block personal evolution.

May 2024

With eclipse season and Mercury retrograde over, May brings a much-needed grounding energy. Out of the entire year, this is the best month to spend time in nature, as a total of four planets will be in the earthy sign of Taurus, until May 20. The May 7 New Moon in Taurus is fortunate for beginning a journey. Activities like camping, traveling, writing, and learning will be your vehicles to express yourself and find happiness.

  • May 2: Pluto goes retrograde in Aquarius – Until October 1, the retrograde of Pluto will bring collective change that can inspire you to create a positive impact within your community. These months encourage you to support causes that are close to your heart, especially if you’re an Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, or Scorpio.
  • May 20: Sun enters Gemini – Until June 20, all zodiac signs will be social, chatty, and a bit restless as they feel the need to connect with others. With only one month away from summer, everyone has their eyes on exciting travel destinations in the season ahead.
  • May 23: Full Moon in Sagittarius – For those who have been focusing too much on the details, this lunation grants the chance to take an optimistic and big-picture perspective towards difficult projects and life, in general. Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces will feel this lunar event more than other signs.
  • May 25: Jupiter enters Gemini – After being in Taurus since May 16, 2023, Jupiter—the planet of luck, abundance, and spirituality—enters Gemini. For the next twelve months, all things communication (speaking, writing, teaching, and learning) receive celestial help. Now is the time to write that book, return to school, or launch that podcast!

June 2024

While June continues to bring opportunities to socialise and have fun, the activation of Saturn adds a serious tone to the month. Between June 5 and June 14, career duties and family responsibilities are bound to take more of your time and energy. Those who put in the effort will be rewarded later on! Once Cancer season arrives, officially kicking off the Summer Solstice, you’ll be free to enjoy time in the sunshine with your chosen family

  • June 3: Venus Star Point – This is one of the most positive days of the entire year for love and romance. However, the presence of Saturn could lower the excitement that this day normally brings. On the positive side, many couples might choose to either get engaged, married, and maybe even become parents now.
  • June 6: New Moon in Gemini – Featuring a square between Venus and Saturn, this lunation is the perfect time to liberate yourself from relationships that no longer light you up. Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces will feel this more pronounced.
  • June 21: Full Moon in Capricorn – Changes to your career path are bound to arrive now‚ and they might be nonnegotiable. When a door closes, there is always a better one waiting on the other side, so this is a time to trust that the universe has your back!
  • June 29: Saturn goes retrograde in Pisces – Until November 15, karmic adjustments take place as Saturn mixes the past with the present and the future. All signs—but especially Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces—will struggle to maintain healthy boundaries in relationships now, especially when it comes to career or business relationships.

July 2024

Summer fun gets a dash of intensity as a total of three planets form their yearly opposition to retrograde Pluto, the planet of power and transformation. July 3, July 12, and July 20, in particular, brim with intensity. During these days, pay attention to the reasons behind your actions, as the cosmos will instigate deep self-study with the goal of helping you break unhealthy patterns. This will be especially true for Cancer, Taurus, Scorpio, and Capricorn.

  • July 2: Neptune Goes Retrograde in Pisces – Until December 7, this retrograde will dissolve the rose-colored glasses, showing of the unwanted realities you’ve been avoiding. While coming down to Earth might be difficult for Pisces, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Gemini, seeing the truth about certain people or situations will eventually bring freedom.
  • July 5: New Moon in Cancer – This is the most positive lunation to set intentions around nurturance, self-care, and family, as Cancer is connected to the archetype of the mother. Emotions will run high now, but they can also help you connect with those you love at a deeper level. This will be easiest for Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
  • July 21: Full Moon in Capricorn – Meaningful collective shifts inspire you to reconsider your career path, as well as the role you play in society. Those with a natal planet in Aquarius, Libra, or Gemini might decide to break free from the corporate matrix and launch their own businesses, as a deep hunger for freedom ripples through the collective.
  • July 22: Sun enters Leo – As the only season of the year ruled by the star of the solar system—the Sun—Leo season inspires everyone to enjoy life to the fullest! Creativity, leadership, and self-expression are at an all-time high, and every single zodiac sign will chase the spotlight now.

August 2024

August will require you to have patience, as the planets will make readjustments to your growth and the way you give birth to new ideas. Mercury goes retrograde in two signs (first Virgo, and then Leo) between August 4 and August 28, affecting almost every zodiac sign. Since Uranus—the planet of change and brilliance—will also be active at the beginning and the end of the month, breakthroughs can be reached by those who keep an open mind.

  • August 1: New Moon in Leo – This lunation kicks off a four-week period in which everyone will focus on reawakening their creativity. Trying different hobbies, palettes, and sceneries will help you feel more alive during this time! The fire signs—Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius—can specifically benefit from searching for new inspiration.
  • August 16: Jupiter in Gemini square Saturn in Pisces – Obstacles along the way show up now—but instead of throwing the towel at the first criticism of your work, try to stay the course. Only those who have overextended themselves since the Spring (perhaps Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces) will feel the need to scale back.
  • August 22: Sun enters Virgo – Following the aspect above, a “let’s get it together” kind of vibe arrives along with Virgo season. For the next four weeks, examine every aspect of your life (work, wellness, and spirit) so you can fix whatever seems misaligned with your goals.
  • August 29: Venus enters Libra – Venus—the planet of pleasure, money, and love—enters Libra, one of its favourite zodiac signs. While adjustments to close relationships will take place between now and September 6, you’ll also receive more opportunities to enjoy life between September 7 and September 21.

September 2024

Eclipse season returns this month, so you can expect change to arrive during the last two weeks of September. Luckily, September 2 provides a New Moon in the helpful and productive sign of Virgo. Harness the following ten days after this lunation to tie up loose ends. Once eclipse season arrives mid-month, many people (specifically Aries, Virgo, Libra, and Pisces) will need more downtime, as eclipse season tends to be a time of low energy.

  • September 1: Uranus goes retrograde – If you are a Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius who has experienced rapid life change, you get a break from it between now and the end of 2023. What’s in store now are some big “aha” moments regarding why those changes needed to happen.
  • September 14: Venus in Libra trine Jupiter in Gemini – This is one of the most positive days for love and romance in the entire year, benefiting Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius the most. If you’re single, now is a good time to overhaul your online dating profile.
  • September 17: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Pisces -Also a supermoon, this eclipse is associated with endings. But because eclipses are portals, this is a time to trust in the wisdom of the cosmos, which is bringing you what you need, and not necessarily what you want. This time will be the most intense for Virgo and Pisces.
  • September 22: Sun enters Libra/Fall Equinox – After an energetically confusing time, everyone is ready for a new beginning! Enter, fall. While the Sun shines in the sign of the scales for the next four weeks, everyone is called to seek balance, especially within their relationships.

October 2024

October is one of the most potent months of 2024 due to the second eclipse season of the year overlapping with Pluto going direct in Capricorn on October 11. Collectively, the world is saying goodbye to a fifteen-year-old period of materialism, which involves seeing old structures crumble. Themes around the economy and the environment will be prevalent, making everyone change their overall outlook on life. Embrace the intensity and the transformation to find your place in the world’s new paradigm.

  • October 2: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra – This is the last eclipse you will experience in the sign of Libra for many years, meaning that it performs its last “clean-up” of everyone’s relationships. You are feeling rebellious and tempted to end any connection that prevents your authentic self-expression. Libra, Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn will feel this the most.
  • October 9: Jupiter goes retrograde in Gemini – It’s time to review all the growth you’ve experienced since May 25, which has most likely manifested in the area of communication. Expect slower expansion from now until February 4, which is when Jupiter goes direct. Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Pisces will feel this “contraction” more intensely.
  • October 17: Full Moon in Aries – Eclipse season is finally over, and this lunation happening in the most individualistic sign invites you to spend time alone so you can process all the shifts from the past month. Healing the past will help you succeed in the future.
  • October 23: Sun enters Scorpio – For the next four weeks, the Sun illuminates what needs to transform in your life so you can fully embrace a feeling of empowerment. This season inspires everyone to celebrate the magic that comes with knowing you can create your own reality!

November 2024

A lot of the questions that have come up recently get answered around mid-month when Pluto—the planet of the collective subconscious—enters Aquarius for good on November 19. For the next twenty years, Pluto will instigate a revolution of the mind, bringing groundbreaking discoveries in technology, space infrastructure, science, and social equality. This kicks off an era of transformation for all signs, but specifically for Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus.

  • November 1: New Moon in Scorpio – Starting the month on a high note, this lunar event is ideal for setting career-related goals and even launching new ventures. Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer could receive good news in the form of a new job or a previous opportunity that they missed in the past.
  • November 15: Full Moon in Taurus – Unexpected news arrives at this lunation, when important decisions will need to be made. To grab a new opportunity, you might have to give up something else. Err on the side of freedom and personal authenticity—because life’s too short to not dance to the rhythm of your own drum!
  • November 21: Sun enters Sagittarius – The most optimistic and celebratory season of all arrives today. Over the next four weeks, seek out new horizons, exciting flavors, and enriching experiences. Studying, long-distance travel, and deep thinking can help make you feel alive, especially if you’re a Sagittarius, Leo, or Aries.
  • November 25: Mercury goes retrograde in Sagittarius – The third and last retrograde of Mercury in 2023, lasting until December 15, will drive you to realize that your belief system might be outdated. Since a new astrological era has started, it’s time to change your overall life philosophy. The good news? You have three weeks to do that!

December 2024

Featuring planets going in and out of retrograde motion, December is a month that asks you to do basically everything differently. Those who suffered a loss this year (most likely Pisces, Sagittarius, Gemini, and Virgo) should seek healing around December 7, when Neptune goes direct. Mars—the planet of action, drive, and sex—goes retrograde from December 6 to February 23, 2025. The way you chase your goals and express your masculine energy will transform as the year comes to a close.

  • December 1: New Moon in Sagittarius – If something didn’t quite pan out this year, this lunation represents a second chance to get it right. Gemini, Sagittarius, and Capricorn can benefit from the retrograde planets the most by reviewing old projects now.
  • December 15: Full Moon in Gemini – Confusion reigns at this lunation, requiring everyone to fully surrender and believe in the natural intelligence of the universe. Mercury going direct today means you can begin regaining control once the Winter Solstice arrives.
  • December 21: Sun enters Capricorn/Winter Solstice – On the shortest day of the year, some people could be in for an unexpected and nice surprise. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn benefit from letting go of what they can’t control by going with the flow. However, fated encounters are on the table for all signs now.
  • December 30: New Moon in Capricorn – Mimicking the August 19 Jupiter-Saturn square, this New Moon brings a feeling of contraction. As you prepare to ring in the new year, there is a lot more work to be done before you can even arrive at your 2025 New Year’s resolutions. January and the first half of February of 2025 will be about going within and embracing deep introspection. What do you truly want your legacy to be? Today, begin answering this deep and incredibly important question.
