2024 Important Astrology Dates to Watch For: Essential Cosmic Events for Your Calendar

2024 important astrology dates

Happy New Year!

We all look forward to the New Year with the hope of a new beginning….

Especially if the past 2023 was a challenging one, and I know it was a transformative year for a lot of us with 7 planets being retrograde simultaneously over the summer.

2023 was more about re-evaluating our true values. Re-connecting with our core beliefs and facing the truth about how well they actually serve our higher purpose.

Still, I know that many of you were able to make a huge dream of yours come true, with Jupiter entering Taurus and for quite a few of my clients this meant purchasing their dream home or gaining massive financial freedom.

So, will 2024 be a better one?

Will the stars align in a way that all the inner work you did in 2023 pays off?

Will the cosmic alignment in 2024 allow us to feel lighter, more carefree, and more in tune with our deepest needs and desires?

2024 promises to be a year of powerful astrological events and shifts.

Watch out for significant episodes, associated with power, technology, and financial systems. The total solar eclipse over the USA may bring unexpected twists of fate.

This year will be particularly intense for those with Sun, Moon, or Rising signs in Aquarius, Libra, Aries, Scorpio, and Pisces.

When navigating the year ahead, remember to trust your intuition and understand that we have free will for a reason.

Use planetary cycles to your advantage but know that they should not dictate your entire life.

Astrology is here mostly to inspire us towards constant evolution and inner growth.

No cosmic alignment can guarantee love, happiness and success unless you play an active role in making this particular scenario manifest.

And vice versa. By using your free will and the strength of your faith and intentions, you can massively soften the blows of faith, predicted by the stars.

As always, I will do my best to give you the most constructive, actionable and sensible astrology guidance for 2024 and I am starting off with a list of key astrology dates and what they mean for you.

2024 promises to be a year of powerful astrological events and shifts. Watch out for significant episodes associated with power, technology, and financial systems. The total solar eclipse over the USA may bring unexpected twists of fate.

This year will be particularly intense for those with Sun, Moon, or Rising signs in Aquarius, Libra, Aries, Scorpio, and Pisces.

January 2024 Highlights

January 2024 is expected to be a notable month astrologically, indicating a potential turning point for the collective. On January 20th, the transformative planet Pluto will move into Aquarius, coinciding with the Sun’s entrance into the same sign.

Pluto Enters Aquarius – January 20, 2024

2024 important astrology dates

The most critical transit in 2024 is Pluto moving into Aquarius on January 20th, where it will remain for several months, briefly return to Capricorn, and then stay in Aquarius for the subsequent 20 years. This significant generational change will result in substantial transformation for the collective.

For those with Capricorn placements, Pluto leaving your sign might bring relief. However, the final moments of Pluto in Capricorn might spark significant changes in themes that have persisted for the past two decades.

With Pluto in Aquarius, we may see a breakdown of traditional forms of government, church, and the patriarchy. Innovation and technology will be recurring themes, with increasing advancements in AI and alternative ways of living.

For those graced with a Capricorn Sun, Moon, or Rising, the past two decades have been a journey focused on achievement, ascending to new heights, and conquering formidable challenges. The weight of this heavy and intense planetary influence on your sign is finally lifting, allowing you a well-deserved opportunity to unwind.

As Pluto transitions into Aquarius, a collective shift unfolds, marked by the dismantling and breakdown of traditional structures in government, church, state, and the patriarchy.

The worn-out systems of old will undergo transformation, making way for emergent paradigms. Institutions like the church and monarchy relinquish the power they once held, while global governments maintain and even expand their influence, a trend initiated during Pluto’s passage through Capricorn. However, this era also heralds a monumental uprising of the people, aligning with Aquarius’s ethos of collective well-being. Expect movements toward socialism, communism, and ostensibly collectivist authorities revealing shades of totalitarianism.

Aquarius, with its emphasis on innovation and technology, emerges as a prominent theme for the next two decades.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) not only persists but evolves into more advanced forms. Simultaneously, individuals at a personal level will exhibit increased innovation, thinking outside the conventional boundaries and devising creative solutions to life’s challenges. Communal living becomes more prevalent, accompanied by a surge in alternative perspectives and lifestyles. Embrace the transformative energy of Pluto in Aquarius as you navigate this era of societal evolution and personal ingenuity.

Jupiter Conjunct Uranus in Taurus – April 20

2024 important astrology dates

This conjunction may cause unexpected changes in the financial market, with a likely positive outcome.

The movement of Jupiter from Taurus to Gemini will be felt by many as it moves from a slow earth sign into a fast air sign. Gemini is all about our local life and economy. There may be a trend toward supporting local, needing to purchase local and supporting local farmers and producers. We can also see an increase in money made online and through communication and media.

Gemini is a fast moving sign… expect to see blessings wherever we have Gemini in our chart.

This will be felt the most by Sagittarius Sun, Moon and Rising and Pisces Sun, Moon and Rising.

Saturn Retrograde – June 29 to Nov 15

2024 important astrology dates

The potent influence of the “lord of karma,” Saturn, intensifies during its retrograde phase spanning several months in 2024. Saturn’s retrograde motion heightens its impact, potentially leading to challenges related to control, governmental structures, and adherence to rules.

Pluto Returns to Capricorn Briefly – Sept 1 to Nov 19

A temporary revisit to Capricorn suggests a resurgence of older, outdated systems or a notable shift within governmental, religious, and institutional realms. This serves as a final prelude before Pluto fully embraces Aquarius for the next two decades, emphasizing a shift towards people-centric focuses.

Partial Lunar Eclipse in Pisces – Sept 17

2024 important astrology dates

Marking the initiation of the Pisces/Virgo eclipse series for 2025/2026, this eclipse on September 17 provides a preview of themes for the next 18 months. Echoing the impact observed during 2015-2017, expect similar influences to unfold.

Annular Solar Eclipse in Libra – Oct 2

Concluding the Libra eclipse series from the past year, the October 2 eclipse holds significance for individuals with Libra Sun, Moon, or Rising, signaling relief as the eclipse cycle concludes. Libra themes of justice, fairness, law, relationships, beauty, and values are accentuated during this period.

Pluto Shifts Back into Aquarius – Nov 19
