What The Signs Can Expect This Year

There’s no mistaking it. We are in 2024, and as we journey around the Sun for another 340-plus days, maybe try and consider the planetary and lunar cycles at play to make the most of this new year. 

2024 solar and lunar eclipses will mostly happen in the Aries-Libra axis prompting us to strike a balance between releasing and receiving in areas related to independence and relationships. Mercury’s backward movements change from last year’s Earth sign retrogrades to fire, meaning the planet will be retrograde in the signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius this year. Creativity, vibrance, action, and tempering one’s energy will be themes that may come up a lot during these transits. 

Another major shift is Pluto’s move to Aquarius which started this month until he goes retrograde again into Capricorn for the last time in September. As the planet of deep transformation and changes, Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008, where we’ve seen a major shift in the world economy. His transit through the sign also changed the way we see resources and power structures, according to which world powers gained and lost. The planet reenters Aquarius in November and finally stays, giving us a sense of what will transform in the next two decades. Fresh out of its retrograde period in Taurus, Jupiter, the planet of fortune and expansion, is also moving to Gemini in May, bringing about more curiosity and a renewed zest to learn. Be careful of getting distracted though, because Jupiter will want to jump into any new topic it finds interesting, ignoring the nitty gritty of every pursuit. The lesson is refinement and clarity in communications.

Based on these major planetary events, here’s what every sign can expect this year. Get more insight by reading both your rising sign and Sun sign scopes. Note that these are mostly general assumptions, and if you want to get more specific, I recommend seeking a professional astrologer to see what’s up based on your birth chart.
