January Overview:

Tired of the slow grind? It is officially over as of January. 

2024 begins with Jupiter in Taurus at the end of its four-month retrograde (December 30) and Mercury at the end of a three-week retrograde cycle (January 1).  As the days and weeks advance, both transits clear away the holdup, and help you to gain more solid ground. The personal planets Mars in Capricorn, (January 4 to February 12), Mercury into Capricorn, (January 13 to February 4), and Venus in Capricorn, (January 23 to February 6), offer something more definable and real to put into play. They set a productive backdrop for building it better.

Pluto’s advance into Aquarius on January 20, is nothing short of momentous. Pluto, the power planet, correlates to collective, generational, and personal evolution. The sign of Aquarius is an acceleration archetype. For the world at large and for your individual (soul in motion) journey, Pluto in Aquarius sets the bigger picture agenda for the next 20 years. Everyday reality is slated for a major overall. Leaving no stone unturned, this transit will advance radical reinvention from the ground up. Much is already in the works.

Much of what lies ahead is going to be astounding. Pluto in Aquarius is the signature transit of revolutionary times, of climate change, geophysical and atmospheric events, A.I., innovation, advances in science, medicine, and technology, space exploration and colonization, and of the pioneering of new frontiers, including the mind, schools of thought, and higher consciousness. Pluto in Aquarius will awaken, enlighten, and in many instances, shock and/or shake to the core. I have written a lengthy article on this transit, which you will find posted in a back issue of the CIA TimeLords Magazine. 

Also adding to the forward momentum, Uranus, (the ruling planet of Aquarius), ends a five-month retrograde tour on January 26.  Uranus has been in transit through the sign of Taurus since 2019. Uranus revolutionizes, modernizes, invents, and liberates. It also disrupts, deviates, radicalizes, erupts, surprises or shocks.  Taurus is the archetype of money, worth, value, and survival (material, biological, reproductive). 

Progressively, Uranus in Taurus (2018 – 2026) reinvents how we survive and how we thrive. Progressively, this transit “breaks the sound barrier” on what it is worth to sustain more of the same.  In so doing, it awakens potentials, special gifts, new capacities, and resources that are aligned with the unfolding future.

Watch the following January dates (allow a day or two margin either side) for your best opportunity to set wheels in motion (or to be on the receiving end of good/right or ripe timing): 

January 12 (Mars/Jupiter trine), 

January 19 (Mercury/Jupiter trine),

January 27 (Mercury/Mars conjunction),

*January 28 (Venus/Jupiter trine; Mercury Uranus trine)

*January 29 (Mars/Uranus trine)

Keep your eye on January 20 (and the days nearby). This is a stand-out date. The sun and Pluto join forces at 29:59. That is just one minute away from their sign change into Aquarius. This date could feel like the true start to the New Year. Whether symbolic or actual, sun/Pluto marks an end or finality of major significance and potent seeding for a next stage. The sun enters Aquarius shortly after the conjunction (6:07 am PST), Pluto enters Aquarius just under 12 hours later (4:50 pm PST). Whether this “off to the races” influence is subtle or dynamic for you, Pluto’s entrance into Aquarius marks January 20 as its official threshold crossing between the past and the future.  Revolutionary times and radical changes are upon us. The next twenty years will alter reality in ways we cannot imagine now. We stand on the precipice of Pluto’s “Great Awakening.” Pluto’s mandate aims to accelerate dramatic change regarding how we create and actualize at every level of existence. 

You will feel the dynamism of this Pluto transit if you are born at the start of the fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius). If you born at the very end of the cardinal signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra) you will also feel this Pluto transit as significant in terms of endings, beginnings, and lifestyle overhaul. Pluto will revisit Capricorn from September 1 to November 19, to do a final wrap-up/check through before vacating the tenancy to start its 20-year residency in Aquarius. If nothing of significance happens in your life, recognize that just like pace of evolution itself, start to finish, the transformative affect of a Pluto transit can extend for 3 to 5 years.  

January 25, the full moon in Leo can thrust the action switch into full steam ahead. January 25 to 29 keeps the action – and the lucrative potential – going strong. These full swing dates offer the best, most lucrative springboard of the month. 

The first five months of the year are action packed. On February 21, Venus and Mars start a new two-year relationship and manifesting cycle. March 24 delivers a lunar eclipse in Libra. April is another key month to watch. Mercury tours retrograde in Aries from April 2 to 25. This Mercury retrograde also encompasses the total solar eclipse/super new moon in Aries on April 8, and the rare Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Taurus on April 20. 

On April 20, Uranus and Jupiter, the planet of increase, will join forces.  This is an exceptional and rare alignment.  Jupiter/Uranus meet every 13 years, but in different signs each time. (Uranus/Jupiter met three times during 2010/2011, twice in Pisces, once in Aries. Think back to those years. Was there something significant growing or developing?  Did it change or catapult the course of your life?)  

Every 84 years, Jupiter/Uranus meet in the same sign. On April 20, the conjunction happens in Taurus.  The last time they met in Taurus was 1941 (an escalation year regarding the events of WW2).

Watch this Jupiter/Uranus in Taurus transit for market, social and political action in the world, and for something instigating and opportune, lucrative, groundbreaking, or life changing for you. If this transit comes and goes without much notice in your life, know that there is something much bigger in play regarding how the world is changing. It will eventually trickle into your personal life too. This transit will be significant if you are born on or near April 20, or the conjunction makes an important contact to your natal chart. 

Aim to skate toward where the puck is going – toward the revolutionary, the unique, the different, the cutting edge, the exceptional. Do not hesitate to be an instigator, a leader, a ground breaker, or a group of one if that is what the stars now ask of you. Live your life in the most uniquely and singularly you way that you can. Your journey may start – or you may start – as a one-off, but if your aim is true, you will start a movement. When your energy field is tuned to the right frequency, you will call forth like-minded souls to join you along the way. May your future be an exceptional journey that gifts you with karmic destiny and reward for your heart of courage.   

Here is a briefing of your individual sun sign forecasts for January in 2024:

ARIES, March 19 to April 19:

Get ready to break your own glass ceiling! New goals and a lifestyle change is on the roster for you. Some friendships or acquaintances can fade out or take a sudden departure. They will be replaced by new interests and involvements. That last sentence does not suggest there is a gap to fill. The year ahead will be anything but boring or slow going. It is a well spring of opportunity. 

While 2024 is the start of a major life overhaul, for the year ahead Saturn and Neptune in Pisces continue to stay focused on clearing away the remnants of what still claims attention before it can be transferred away from the front and center profile. Neptune in Pisces is a tuning fork influence. Saturn in Pisces is a dissolving process. Both aim to expose potential that has been previously hidden from view but that is getting closer to its time is ripe moment. Saturn will show you the ropes and set the new reality into play in more definitive or dictating way once it takes up residency in Aries, (starting at the end of May of 2025, and with more permanency as of mid February of 2026). For 2024, both Saturn and Neptune call for you to surrender and transcend preconceived notions and judgements. Stay open to any goes. Aspire to align with your highest and best interests. There are times when uncertainty, confusion, or the unexpected can overtake you. In these times, the best you can do is to take your attention off tomorrow and to full immerse yourself right where you are. 

Keep your eye on January 20 (and the days nearby). This is a stand-out date. The sun and Pluto join forces at 29:59. That is just one minute away from their sign change into Aquarius. This date could feel like the true start to the New Year. Whether symbolic or actual, sun/Pluto marks an end or finality of major significance and potent seeding for a next stage. The sun enters Aquarius shortly after the conjunction (6:07 am PST), Pluto enters Aquarius just under 12 hours later (4:50 pm PST). Whether this “off to the races” influence is subtle or dynamic for you, Pluto’s entrance into Aquarius marks January 20 as its official threshold crossing between the past and the future.  Revolutionary times and radical changes are upon us. The next twenty years will alter reality in ways we cannot imagine now. We stand on the precipice of Pluto’s “Great Awakening.” Pluto’s mandate aims to accelerate dramatic change regarding how we create and actualize at every level of existence. You will feel the dynamism of this Pluto transit if you are born at the start of the fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius). If you born at the very end of the cardinal signs (Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, or Libra) you will also feel this Pluto transit as significant in terms of endings, beginnings, and lifestyle overhaul. Pluto will revisit Capricorn from September 1 to November 19, to do a final wrap-up/check through before vacating the tenancy and to start its 20-year residency in Aquarius. If nothing of significance happens in your life, recognize that just like pace of evolution itself, start to finish, the transformative affect of a Pluto transit can extend for 3 to 5 years.  

January 25, the full moon in Leo can thrust the action switch into full steam ahead. January 25 to 29 keeps the action – and the lucrative potential – going strong. The month can end on an upswing of significance. It is a good time to travel, market, teach, perform, upgrade education, or to go exploring. 

What holds value for you, what you want out of life, what you are tapping from inside yourself – you are undergoing a lengthy process of evolution. It has been in the works for a few years now. Uranus in transit through Taurus (in effect since 2018) will continue to stimulate capacities, resources, and opportunities. Additionally, Uranus in Taurus continues to stimulate prospects regarding a new financial status or material reality. The end of March and whole month of April marks a turning point peak of significance. 

Thanks to the spring eclipses (Lunar Eclipse March 24, Total Solar Eclipse April 8, and the Jupiter/Uranus alignment on April 20. The springboard can start as early as end of January and extend through May. The Jupiter/Uranus transit could be life-altering regarding your financial status, survival matters, and lifestyle. (Someone close to you could transition.)  

Note that Mercury in Aries is retrograde from April 2 to 25. The transit will always take you through a repeat or re-meet. This cycle holds more significant potency. Karmic destiny is quite strong for the entire month. To the plus, Mercury retrograde could give you a second chance for a fresh start. It is also a time go independent, to free yourself up, or to cut to the chase in a way you have not been able to do previously. Keep tabs on anger or reactionary emotions.

On April 20, Uranus and Jupiter, the planet of increase, will join forces.  This is an exceptional and rare alignment.  Jupiter/Uranus meet every 13 years, but in different signs each time. (Uranus/Jupiter met three times during 2010/2011, twice in Pisces, once in Aries. Think back to those years. Was there something significant growing or developing?  Did it change or catapult the course of your life?)  

Every 84 years, Jupiter/Uranus meet in the same sign. On April 20, the conjunction happens in Taurus. The previous alignment in Taurus took place in 1941 (an escalation year regarding the events of WW2).

Watch this Jupiter/Uranus in Taurus transit for market, social and political action in the world, and for something instigating and opportune, lucrative, groundbreaking, or life changing for you. If this transit comes and goes without much notice in your life, know that there is something much bigger in play regarding how the world is changing. It will eventually trickle into your personal life too. This transit will hold significant impact if you are born on or near April 20, or the conjunction makes an important contact to your natal chart. 

Also mobilizing, Jupiter leaves Taurus to begin a one-year tour of Gemini on May 25. Expect to find yourself on the go, juggling more or taking on more. Jupiter in Gemini sets a backdrop for short projects and temporary undertakings, or rentals, diversification, visitors, quick trips, and more social opportunity. There can be important paperwork or negotiations to tend to. 

Late August through the end of November can bring a sense of moving to a next stage or of finally cutting yourself lose. Still as Pluto revisits Capricorn from September 1 to November 19 you may feel there is still more to finish off or reformat before you fully feel you can move forward. Although the entire year ahead will be one of setting up the new game board, Mars will finish the year in retrograde through the signs of Leo and Cancer. This backtrack can see you on a continuous revision and development track through the spring/summer of 2025 when the stars kick it more fully into gear. Saturn and Neptune will break fresh ground in Aries (the former is a two and ½ year transit, the latter a 14-year transit.) How can you navigate your way through the radical changes ahead? Do not hold on to the past, be open to anything goes, put courage into play, trust destiny to light up the pathway, and take a risk on a brand-new adventure.

TAURUS, April 19 to May 20:

By the end of January, all planets will be in direct motion. Jupiter ended its 4-month retrograde tour on December 30. Mercury ends retrograde on January 1. By the end of the month, Pluto will have changed signs and Uranus will be out of retrograde. What does it all mean? It means that first half of 2024 is set up to hit the ground running with less encumberment, greater opportunity. and potential profitability. 

Give yourself the first week of January to ease into it and/or to get your bearings straight. Mars, the action planet, transits Capricorn from January 4 to February 12. Mercury, the think, say, and do planet, transits Capricorn from January 13 to February 4. Venus, the relate/evaluate planet, tours Capricorn from January 23 to February 16. These personal planets assist you to maintain good organization and efficiency.  Capricorn, the builder archetype, is your best sign for creative enterprise.  Use this next month to get your game plan together and then to implement. The month ahead is well set for making the most out of the time you have. Ambition and effort net a good pay-off. Use the following dates to set wheels in motion and/or take full advantage of the opportunity of the moment: January 12, 19, 20, 26 – 30.

Starting January 20, Pluto’s advance into Aquarius has the power to completely reformat to restructure your existing reality from the ground up this transit. This transit places you at the end of a long road, and at the start of a major new chapter of your life. (At the bigger picture soul level, it signals the start of something long in the works – no less than a rewriting/refashioning of your personal history.) To a great degree, this reinvented reality (including your soul’s ambition to undertake it) has been in the works for a length of time. This year, or the next several to come, Pluto in Aquarius can see you jettison forward into a new career or professional track, or a new personal life or material status. Along with this outer reality, comes a completely transformed inner consciousness. You will observe yourself from a fresh angle/see yourself in a whole new light. 

Keep your eye on January 20 (and the days nearby). This is a stand-out date. The sun and Pluto join forces at 29:59. That is just one minute away from their sign change into Aquarius. This date could feel like the true start to the New Year. Whether symbolic or actual, sun/Pluto marks an end or finality of major significance and potent seeding for a next stage. Pluto is at the end a 16 year residency in Capricorn and is starting a 20 year residency in Aquarius. The sun enters Aquarius shortly after the conjunction (6:07 am PST), Pluto enters Aquarius just under 12 hours later (4:50 pm PST). Whether this “off to the races” influence is subtle or dynamic for you, Pluto’s entrance into Aquarius marks January 20 as its official threshold crossing between the past and the future.  Revolutionary times and radical changes are upon us. The next twenty years will alter reality in ways we cannot imagine now. We stand on the precipice of Pluto’s “Great Awakening.” Pluto’s mandate aims to accelerate dramatic change regarding how we create and actualize at every level of existence. 

You will feel the dynamism of this Pluto transit if you are born on or near April 21. Pluto will revisit Capricorn from September 1 to November 19, to do a final wrap-up/check through before vacating the tenancy to start its 20-year residency in Aquarius. If nothing of significance happens in your life, recognize that just like pace of evolution itself, start to finish, the transformative affect of a Pluto transit can extend for 3 to 5 years.  

January 25, the full moon in Leo can thrust the action switch into full steam ahead. January 25 to 29 keeps the action – and the lucrative potential – going strong.

Uranus in Taurus ends retrograde on January 26.  This change of direction unblocks whatever resistance, or hurdle has been in the way of getting yourself to the next level. Uranus began its tour of Taurus in 2018 and continues for another two (plus) years in your sign. Expect full to the brim days for the near future! Uranus in Taurus will keep your life and your personal reinvention unfolding. By the time Uranus leaves your sign, you will see yourself/your life in a completely new light. Opportunity can come knocking at the end of January. Venus/Jupiter, Mercury/Uranus and Mars/Uranus can set you on a lucrative, opportune, and/or exciting upswing. 

2024 holds four eclipses, two in the spring and two in the fall. All four set up significant threshold crossings. They move the dial forward in terms of the circumstances of your life, and regarding your relationship with yourself. 

The March 24 lunar eclipse in Libra can get the action started, but April is the feature month to watch. April 8 delivers a super new moon/solar eclipse (a spring-board influence.) A momentous Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Taurus happens on April 20. This a rare transit happens once every 13 years, but only once every 84 years in the same sign. The last time the conjunction happened in Taurus was 1941 (WW2). Uranus is an awakening, accelerating, and often a disruptive archetype. It is the planet of surprise and of synchronicity. A Uranus transit can produce the exceptional. That can fall into the category of an opportunity of a lifetime or a breakthrough of significance. (Uranus can also produce a shockwave or shattering experience.) Jupiter is the planet of increase. Together, this duo can bring the extraordinary to pass. It holds the potential to be exceptionally lucrative, emotionally fulfilling or completely life altering. As such, April can be time to be a trail blazer, to hit the ground running on the new you. It could be destiny in the making time. This is especially so for you if your birthday falls on or near April 21. 

GEMINI, May 20 to June 30:

January opens Mercury and Jupiter at the end of retrograde cycles. As both planets move forward, you will too. Even so, you may not be operating at full speed to begin with. You may not feel entirely clear or cleared away until past the first week of January. Once you are (or it is) up and rolling, you should find yourself on a productive track. The Capricorn stars: the transiting sun (to January 20), Mars (starting January 4), Mercury (starting January 13) and Venus (starting January 23) assist you to prioritize more efficiently and to get it under better control. These transits also make you aware of the time you have and how important it is to use it wisely. Watch January 12, 19, and 27 to 29. These are opportune dates to take advantage of the moment.

Pluto, the bigger picture planet, correlates to the process of evolution and to your soul’s deepest desires. Pluto enters Aquarius on January 20. This sign advance sets a much different backdrop than Pluto’s grind through Capricorn (since 2008). Aquarius is a complimentary air sign for Gemini. If you are born on or near May 20/21 or the few days that follow, you will pick up a good strong wind from this Pluto transit. If you are born later in the sign of Gemini, your opportunity will come sometime later. 

Pluto in Aquarius is excellent for exploring new ways of making your way or your name in the world. As Pluto works its way through Aquarius you may hear a calling beyond what you have known to date. Freedom, independence, and reinvention can call you forth. The prompt could entail leaving it all behind in search of greater fulfillment, for that which speaks more deeply to your soul and is in keeping with who you envision yourself to be. Relocation, a radical lifestyle change, a spiritual quest, wealth, or fame is on the roster for some. Your interest or talents in metaphysics can grow. At the very least, you will find your intuition (enhanced by this transit) to be one of your best resources.   

Just before Pluto enters Aquarius, it teams up with the sun at 29:59 of Capricorn. This is the very last degree and minute before the sign change. The creative potency of the sun and transformative potency of Pluto make January 20 a date to watch. Whether symbolic or actual, this team-up marks a definitive end or finality of significance and an exceptionally potent seeding for a next stage. The sun enters Aquarius shortly after the conjunction (6:07 am PST), Pluto enters Aquarius half a day later (4:50 pm PST). This planetary pairing can be subtle or dynamic in terms of what it might produce on the actual date. Either way, it will set the action springboard for the year ahead, and especially for the next few months. 

A pumped-up full moon in Leo on January 25, can thrust the switch onto a fuller steam ahead. On January 26, Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, ends a five-month retrograde cycle. Uranus, the planet of surprise and synchronicity adds more potency to the action track.  January 25 to 30 is ripe for setting wheels in motion. Opportunity is at peak January 28 and 29 thanks to a cluster of trines between the following planets: Venus/Jupiter, Mercury/Jupiter, and Mars/Uranus. 

The end of January through April/May are full steam ahead months. April is the stands out month. This is due to the total solar eclipse/super new moon on April 8, Mercury retrograde in Aries (April 2 to 25), and the momentous Jupiter/Uranus conjunction on April 20. Eclipses keep the intensity dial up pre and post their event date, so watch the end of March (lunar eclipse in Libra on March 24) and the whole of April for full throttle action. Life could change on a dime. Watch for something unexpected to fast track or jettison you. Mercury retrograde could set up a do-over of substantial opportunity. Or it can be time to cut to the chase, burn off the residue of the past, and set yourself free – for once and for all time.

CANCER, June 20 to July 22:

Stay ambitious, make productive use of your time and resources as best you can. Deal with the reality as is and stay focused on your end game. Limitation, delay, or a deadline may still be in place, but now that the retrograde tours of Mercury and Jupiter are out of the way, you will find yourself making better headway with the things you have struggled with in recent weeks and months. January 9, 11, 12, 28 and 29 can be good dates for setting wheels in motion or for taking full advantage of the moment.

New opportunities and possibilities can appear by late January, into February and beyond. To an extent, it can be a matter of how you see it and how you play it. Perspective is key to the creative actualization process.    

Pluto, the agent of your bigger picture evolution, has spent the past 16 years touring Capricorn. This transit is also the signature transit of collective evolution. All this time Pluto in Capricorn has been breaking down the reality baseline. We have witnessed this at every level of existence. Pluto enters Aquarius on January 20. Capricorn rules the past, Aquarius rules the future. Pluto in Aquarius will speed up the process of moving into a completely altered reality. This transit is an unlocking, awakening, enlightening, or liberating influence for your sign. The transit can help you to shatter your own sound barrier, the one that holds you back. You could come to an awareness or recognition of something that has previously escaped your awareness or comprehension. The discovery process could a lightening produce flash or a shockwave. A new capacity or a whole new side of yourself can emerge. Pluto in Aquarius could prove to unlock lucrative potential. To the plus, you could stumble upon a new source of income. The next few months and years could take you through a significant material/financial overhaul. You could find yourself attracted to subjects, a lifestyle, a social track, community, an individual or intimate other that is radically different than what you have reached for in your past. A change in your relationship status is possible too.

Uranus, ruling planet of Aquarius, ends retrograde on January 26. This planetary shift supports Pluto’s in mandate for accelerated change, for a radical shift of consciousness and of creative enterprise. Uranus, in Taurus revolutionizes everything to do with net worth, self worth, and survival (at all levels, emotional included). This development curve has been in the works since 2018 and continues to 2025/2026. In 2024 it will gain plenty more traction. 

Thanks to eclipses (March 24, April 8) and other transit triggers, March/April are forward-thrust months to watch.  On April 20, Jupiter and Uranus join forces. They last met 13 years ago in 2010/2011. What was happening/instigating for you then?  The last Jupiter/Uranus conjunction in Taurus (same as April) was 1941 (an escalation year for WW2). Jupiter, planet of increase, enlarges the scope of whatever it touches. Uranus can be awakening, accelerating, enlivening, and/or disruptive. When Uranus is triggered, it will always produce an element of surprise/the unexpected. Jupiter/Uranus can be lucrative or opportune. Risk is in the mix, but when is it not? Don’t gamble with what you cannot afford to lose but do put courage into play and reach for what it is in your most authentic highest and best interest. As of mid May onward, you will move to the next phase of implementation regarding your soul’s reinvention mandate.

LEO, July 22 to August 22:

The new year launches with the end of both Jupiter retrograde (December 30) and Mercury retrograde (January 1). What does that mean for you? As time moves along, the backdrop is set to move ahead with personal and professional goals, and to gain more reward for your efforts. In addition to the sun in Capricorn (to January 20), all three personal planets on tour through Capricorn (action planet Mars, January 4 to February 12; think, say and do planet Mercury January 13 to February 4; feel, value, and relate planet Venus January 23 to March 11) support your ambition to get it under better control and to make improvement where it is most required. These transits help you to stay better organized and on task. You should feel you can make effective use of you time and resources. 

 

January 20 is a stand-out date. It could rival January 1 as the New Year launch! This is due to the powerhouse alignment of the sun and Pluto at 29:59 Capricorn. This merger takes place at one minute to completion of a creative process that has been long in the works and one minute to a whole new actualizing track. (29:60 or 00:00 marks the start of Aquarius.) Whether you experience this alignment as subtle or actual, catapulting or jolting, Sun/Pluto now arrive at the intersection of an end or finality of major significance, and (more importantly) a very potent seeding for a next stage. From this point forward, the actualizing process speeds up on collective and personal evolution.  January 25, the full moon in Leo can thrust the action switch into full steam ahead. January 25 to 29 keeps the momentum – and the lucrative potential – going strong. 

Adding to the forward thrust momentum, Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, ends retrograde on January 25. Uranus spends 7 years in transit through a sign. Uranus entered Taurus in 2018 and will continue in this sign through 2025/2026. Uranus in Taurus revolutionizes everything to do with value and worth, i.e., financial (net worth) and emotional (self worth). Jupiter, currently traveling through Taurus (a one-year transit), forms an exceptionally rare alignment with Uranus on April 20. Jupiter meets with Uranus once every 13 years, but an alignment in the same sign only happens once every 84 years!  The last Jupiter/Uranus conjunction spanned 2010/2011. What was instigating for you at that time? The last time Jupiter/Uranus met in Taurus was 1941 (middle of WW2). 

Jupiter increases the scope where-ever it goes. Uranus awakens, disrupts, erupts, invents, revolutionizes, surprises, jolts, and accelerates change. Put these two together in the sign of Taurus and it is anything goes, and on a grand scale regarding everything to do with money, finance, survival, resources, and worth. (Uranus in Taurus correlates to crypto currency.) It could be lucrative and/or life altering, perhaps in a sudden, extraordinary, unforeseen, or catapulting way. An exceptional discovery could be made, regarding antiquities and extinction, or the future. We could hear of something exceptional from science, technology, medical research, space, A.I. climate change matters and initiatives. 

This April 20 Jupiter/Uranus alignment follows on the heels of two eclipses (lunar eclipse March 24, total solar eclipse, and super moon on April 8). It also hosts Mercury retrograde in Aries (April 2 to 25). Suffice to say, April is a month to watch! In actuality, the end of January through mid May is laden with significant planetary triggers. The first half of 2024 prime for hitting the ground running and for making faster gains. The April 20 Jupiter/Uranus alignment can be of significance for your birthday falls on or near August 13/14.

VIRGO, August 22 to September 22:

January sets you onto a better move ahead, especially so thanks to end of Jupiter retrograde (December 30) and Mercury retrograde (January 1). It is also due to the sun’s position, and to the personal planets in transit through Capricorn: Mars (January 4 to February 12), Mercury (January 13 to February 4) and Venus (January 23 to February 6). These transits set up a fortuitous backdrop of growth and opportunity.  Use this time to explore, expand, publish, broadcast, or procure. Trust the wisdom of your body, trust your intuition. Put ambition put to good use and set yourself to task. It is amazing what you can achieve when stay goal oriented and results driven. 

The biggest news of the year is Pluto’s entrance into Aquarius. Correlating to the force of evolution, Pluto’s bigger picture mandate is to leave no stone unturned in terms of utterly transforming the collective and personal creative process. Pluto has spent the last 16 years breaking down the structural foundations that have built our reality and that are outmoded and do not serve our future evolution, i.e. racism and gender inequality, political systems, religious doctrines, and antiquated social norms. The last time Pluto toured Aquarius (248 years ago) was the time of political upheaval in Europe and the French revolution. I have written at length on this transit (visit my website or check out a back issue of CIA Timelords Magazine).  Capricorn represents the past. Aquarius represents the future. As of January 20, Pluto crosses the threshold! This date can be significantly catapulting or life altering, especially if the transit triggers something important in your natal chart. 

Just before Pluto enters Aquarius, the sun and Pluto meet in the very last minute of Capricorn (29:59). This underscores an element of finality and no turning back. Look to prospects for the future, not to a repeat of your past. Borrowing a quote from a political speech, skate in the direction of where the puck heading. Did you feel the last few months/last year has been a slow grind. This year will be anything but! 

Putting everything on the increase (or to excess), the full moon in Leo on January 25 begins an upswing or trendsetting run of transits. Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, ends retrograde on January 26. Uranus will trigger and accelerate that which has been stuck in development for the past few months. Once the domino sets in motion, it will trigger a chain reaction. January 27 to 29 is opportune for setting wheels in motion. (A word of caution regarding the January full moon. Go for gold but try not to over-estimate the prospect, potential, or value.)   

The stars are amped up over the first five months of the year. Don’t miss out! Use your time and opportunity wisely. Reinvent as the moment dictates. The stars set an optimized backdrop to break new ground, to become a new/updated version of yourself, to live a completely reinvented life, one that is a radical departure from what you previously conceptualized for yourself. 

A new Mars/Venus relationship cycle (outer world, personal world) starts in February. March 24 delivers a lunar eclipse in Libra. April 8 delivers a total solar eclipse, super new moon in Aries. April also hosts the next Mercury retrograde (in Aries, April 2 – 25) and a rare Jupiter/Uranus conjunction on April 20.  

Jupiter, the planet of more, increases and enlarges where-ever it goes. Uranus in Taurus shatters the sound barrier and/or the glass ceiling. This dynamic pairing happens once every 13 years, but each time it is in a different sign each time. The last conjunction spanned 2010/2011. What was growing/instigating for you? The last time Jupiter/Uranus met in Taurus was in 1941 (escalation year for WW2). Whether or not something happens for you on this exact date, know that something big, and life altering is in the works. It could be lucrative. No matter what happens, know your soul values the experience, the learning, or the potential. Taurus correlates to money, to worth and value, and to survival at all levels (biological, geo-physical, financial, emotional) Uranus in Taurus is also a signature for cryptocurrency, speculative markets, and undertakings. The influence of Mercury retrograde during this transit suggests the potential to start over or start fresh, and to build it better this time. 

Jupiter will end its tour of Taurus in the middle of May, to spend a year in transit through Gemini. This planetary switch will mobilize you in a myriad of ways. A new address, (co-habitation), more short jaunts out of town, more social connections, fresh interests, and new income streams are quite possible.  Jupiter in Gemini puts more variety in your day to day. It is good for diversification, for more physical activity, for exploring new talents, resources, or avenues. You can have more than one income stream or project on the go.  (You could have more than one relationship prospect to explore too.) From September 1 to November 19, Pluto will revisit Capricorn for a final review and check through regarding any left-over from the past that need to be dealt with. Even so, by then, you will be well immersed in your new life trajectory.

LIBRA, September 22 to October 22:

2024 opens with two planets ending retrograde tours: Jupiter, as of December 30; Mercury, as of January 1. Both transits give the greenlight, but there could be a slow build over the week or. You can take your time, but make sure you don’t waste it, especially while the stars (sun, Mars, Mercury in Capricorn) set a good backdrop for getting it organized and under better control. 

January 9 could start to light a spark. The new moon on January 11 can give you a better feel for what lies ahead. Something could be seeding new life in your awareness. January 12, (Mars/Jupiter trine) and January 19 (Mercury/Jupiter trine) and the few days either side can set wheels in motion and/or put it into a fuller swing (market trends, social or political campaigns included.) These dates are good for travel, sports, seeking fresh opportunity, marketing ventures, putting yourself out there, or for going your own way.  

January 20, Pluto enters Aquarius. On this day, the sun and Pluto align at the very last minute of Capricorn before both move into Aquarius. This sun/Pluto conjunction set the moment as prime to navigate the turnstile marked “leaving the past behind, destination: your future.”  This, despite the need for more time to process or to complete. (You can revisit throughout the year, and especially September 1 to November 19 when Pluto backtracks into Capricorn for a final time.) January 20 could transpire little to show for it, or it could trigger something of significance. Whether or not you fully recognize this threshold crossing until you look back on it later, suffice to say, it is momentous. As November 19, Pluto begins its 20-year tour of Aquarius. These years will accelerate collective and personal reinvention.

Have the past 16 years of Pluto in Capricorn been a grind for you? Know that Pluto in Aquarius, a complimentary air sign, helps you to take to lifestyle changes and personal reinvention like a duck to water. Your sign (and the Pluto in Libra generation, 1970 – 1984) is meant to come forward as a frontrunner for social and market trends. 

January 25 delivers a full moon in Leo. It can hold great prospect for creative enterprise and for matters of heart or wallet, but know there is a propensity to over-estimate, over-promise, or over-shoot.  On January 26, Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, ends a five-month retrograde tour.  Uranus will continue its tour of Taurus through 2025/2026. You are at the start of creative, actualizing, and experiential track that will transform the most important parts of your life, starting with a new way of envisioning yourself and the world around you. So much will unfold over the next few years. The best is yet to come, especially so when you allow yourself to envision it and to live it authentically/whole-heartedly.

March/April can be a catapulting time, one that could springboard the unexpected, and/or change the course of your life. This two-month window host the following: a lunar eclipse in Libra on March 24, a total solar eclipse/super new moon) in Aries on April 8, and Mercury retrograde in Aries (April 2 – 25). Additionally, Jupiter, planet of increase, and Uranus, the electricity planet, form a rare alignment on April 20. This conjunction happens every 13 years but in a different sign each time. The last time they came together was in 2010/2011. Think back and you may see the significance of that time. The last time Jupiter/Uranus happened in Taurus (same as now) was 1941 (a WW2 escalation year).  Watch for something of substantial significance regarding finances, (earnings, investments, debt, assets, wills, legacies), values, net worth, self worth, and survival (at all levels). Mercury retrograde could see you revisit something or someone of the past (actual or karmic). It could provide a fresh chance for a do-over. 

SCORPIO, October 22 to November 21:

The new year opens with Jupiter (December 30) and Mercury (January 1) completing retrograde cycles. Held up or blocked no longer, the stars set a backdrop for better progress ahead. 

Capricorn transits – the sun (to January 20), Mars in Capricorn (January 4 to February 12), Mercury in Capricorn (January 13 to February 4) and Venus in Capricorn (January 23 to February 6) help you to put ambition into to play, to get it better organized and under control. You can make better use of your time and resources. There’s potential to gain more tangible results for your efforts too.  January 12, 14, 28, 29 (and the days nearby) are optimal. Putt it into full swing and/or take full advantage of the moment.

January 20 is a stand-out date to watch. The sun and Pluto join forces at the very last minute (29:59) of Capricorn before both advance into Aquarius. The sun does this every year, but Pluto visits Aquarius only once every 248 years I have written at length about this transit. You can find that article on my website, or in a back issue of the CIA Timelords magazine. In short Pluto in Aquarius marks revolutionary times of accelerated change. Outside of a dip back into Capricorn from September 1 to November 19, Pluto will spend the next 20 years (to 2044) in Aquarius. This transit can completely alter (even rock the foundation of) your life in a significant way. By the time this transit gets through with you, you might not even recognize yourself! Pluto prompts deep, core, and lasting change. It will significantly transform your inner perception, how you receive and process through your emotional body. It can utterly transform your personal life, home life, and family dynamic. The transit can help you to unlock the imprints of the past, i.e. the secret vault and emotional triggers that are deeply imbedded within your subconscious. If you so inclined to do this profoundly deep work, the transit can provide the key to unlock long buried tools that will help you to liberate yourself. The transit assists to accelerate your evolution by the breaking of chains that bind, i.e., the repeating loop of past lives. Yes, you have incarnated for a reason. You have set up this life for a reason. Pluto in Aquarius does the wind-up on a new clock. It is one you have preprogrammed for this exact period of your life, for this timeline (the next 20 years). If you are born on or near October 24 or Nov 13, (or 1983 -85, or 1991/92) you can feel the most dynamic life-altering effect of Pluto in Aquarius in the year ahead.  Having said that, whether the day or days nearby are eventful, or come and go with little fanfare, know that you stand poised at a significant chapter of collective history writing chapter that also coincides with your individual life journey/your unique soul-path undertaking.  

Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius, ends retrograde on January 25. This occurs on the day after a “going for the gold” full moon in Leo (January 25). The full moon could bring significant recognition your way. Or someone of significance can make their mark on your life, (it could be an entrance or an exit of note.) There’s ample promise, but try not to inflate, over-estimate, over-value, or over-shoot the mark. 

Relationships – your relationship to yourself, to the people in your personal and professional life, to your values (money matters includes) – all are slated for reinvention and evolution. February begins a new Venus/Mars relationship cycle. March 24 delivers a lunar eclipse in Libra. April 8 delivers a super new moon/total solar eclipse in Aries. Mercury in Aries tours retrograde from April 8 to 25, suggesting the month is slated for a significant do-over and/or fresh start (after a necessary cut to the chase or tear down). On April 20, Jupiter and Uranus join forces in Taurus. This rare transit happens once every 13 years, but in different signs each time. The last time Jupiter/Uranus joined forces in Taurus was 1941 (WW2 escalation year). The previous Jupiter/Uranus conjunction took place in 2010/2011. In looking back, you may find personal significance to the circumstances of that time. Jupiter/Uranus set the backdrop for something lucrative or full of potential to hit full swing. In the middle of May, Jupiter will begin a one-year tour of Gemini. This mobilizing transit can keep you betwixt and between moving past the past and getting better acquainted with the emerging new reality.

SAGITTARIUS, November 21 to December 21

Jupiter, your ruler, ended a 4-month retrograde cycle on December 30. The new year launches with Mercury at the end of its three-week retrograde cycle. Two more planets (Pluto and Uranus) will complete retrograde cycles later in January. What does all that mean? The first week or so of January gives you a little extra time to warm up to it. Once up and rolling, 2024 will not dally or dither on the forward thrust agenda! 

Mars enters Capricorn on January 4. Mercury enters Capricorn on January 13. Both transits help you to get yourself/your priorities better organized. Venus in Capricorn (January 23 to February 6) helps you to make the most of your time. Inspired and spontaneous moments set good wheels in motion on January 12 (Mars/Jupiter trine) and January 19 (Mercury/Jupiter trine). Travel, reaching for more and putting yourself out there are favoured on these dates. 

January 20 is a date to watch. Powerhouse Pluto aligns with the sun at 29:59 Capricorn. That is just one minute before the sun advances into Aquarius and just a half day before Pluto does the same!  While the sun and Pluto meet yearly, the last time they crossed a threshold of such significance was 248 years ago!  We stand poised the end of a lengthy process. It has been one of inching toward this intersection of time, of moving through a no-turning-back turnstile regarding the inevitability of the future that awaits. The inevitable also includes the necessity to break free of (or shatter) the crystalized patterns of a creative process that no longer serves purpose. A completely reinvented reality is in the works.  Leaving no stone unturned, Pluto in Aquarius accelerates collective and personal evolution.  The coming years will be a radical departure from what we have known. We are gaining glimpses now, but know, there is so much more to come! Pluto in Aquarius will revolutionize existing reality from the ground up (and into space) for the next twenty years! I have written at length on this transit. Read the article on my website or in a back issue of CIA Timelords magazine. 

How will this Pluto transit influence your personal life? It will complete reformat how you see and interface with the world around you, i.e. what you are interested to know, learn, and discuss; your lifestyle, your friendships, your day-to-day activities, where and with whom you find yourself. You will have a different vibe about you and folks will notice it. The result is that you will attract in a much different way than you have to date. Also, Pluto in Aquarius can unlock more of your extraordinary talents and resources. Expect your intuition to grow. A hobby or creative talent could turn into a new vocation or career path. This year and in coming years, you will find yourself immersed in a lively self discovery process, which includes not only personal and social reinvention, but professional development too. 

A full moon in Leo (January 25) precedes the end of Uranus retrograde on January 26. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius. As such, this transit holds even more than its typical impact and potential. January 27 to 29 hosts a run of stars, starting with Mercury/Mars (conjunction) triggering the action, followed by trines on January 28 (Venus/Jupiter, Mercury/Uranus) and January 29 (Mars/Uranus). Put that all together and its “take-off time.”  The manifesting track is at optimum, so know you can go further or take it further and gain more than you might at another time. The one caveat is that there can be a propensity for the inflationary, for too much all at once, for overshooting the mark, or holding to overly high expectations. Seize the day but also keep it real. 

The next few months are going to speed up the action, perhaps greatly so. February hosts the start of a new two-year Mars/Venus relationship and manifesting cycle. March 24 delivers a lunar eclipse in Libra. The most significant month to watch is April. Mercury in Aries, retrograde from April 2 to 25, can be inflaming or instigating. This transit is famous for a revisit or backtrack. It could set up a second chance to get it launched, for a do-over with better odds. It may be time to burn the bridge and start over from scratch. How ever it goes for you, Mercury retrograde makes the target too obvious to ignore. 

April 8 delivers a total solar eclipse, super new moon in Aries. Whatever fires up, does so with a dynamic life force.  On April 20, Jupiter/Uranus join forces for the first time in 13 years. Think back to 2010/2011. What was instigating or growing in scope for you back then? Jupiter/Uranus meet every 13 years, but each time in a different sign. They meet in the same sign only once every 84 years. The last time Jupiter/Uranus were together in Taurus was in 1941 (WW2 escalation year).  Jupiter puts everything on the increase. Uranus disrupts and awakens, typically in a sudden, unexpected, destabilizing, or unpredictable way. When these two team-up in the sign of Taurus, they thrust something lucrative or of significant value into a new reality. This transit could see you make a breakthrough regarding health, work, problem solving, or survival matters. You could discover something about yourself, your natural gifts, or your circumstances that changes everything. It could be lucrative and/or life altering, perhaps in a sudden, extraordinary, unforeseen, or catapulting way. An exceptional discovery could be made, regarding antiquities and extinction, or the future. We could hear of something exceptional from science, technology, medical research, space, A.!. climate change initiatives. (Uranus in Taurus, 2018 – 2025/2026 also correlates to crypto currency and other such revolutionary inventions. This transit also favours alternative healing modalities. Also, Uranus in Taurus, a resource rich archetype, can unblock unconscious content. This can be from the catalogue of frozen and forgotten memories, i.e. trauma consciousness, or it can see you tap/reawaken natural gifts, talents, and capacities from past lives that you have brought into this lifetime. 

Jupiter, your ruler, leaves Taurus on May 25 for a one-year tour of Gemini. Do not expect to sit still or be bored. Jupiter in Gemini can keep you on the go and on the move. It can increase your social life, and it can keep you physically on the go too.

CAPRICORN, December 21 to January 20:

2024 opens with both Jupiter and Mercury finished with retrograde tours (December 30 and January 1 respectively). Mars advances into Capricorn on January 4, but if you are not quite up to full steam ahead over this first week of the month, you certainly will be as the month progresses. January 9 to 12, 19, 20, 25 – 29 are the full swing action dates of the month.

All three personal planets will take tours of Capricorn: Mars: January 4 to February 12; Mercury: January 13 to February 4; Venus: January 23 to February 6. Mars is the action planet, Mercury is the activity planet (think, say, do), and Venus, is the go by feel/receptivity planet (planet of worth, value, and finances). All three boost your drive, ambition, and your potential benefits and results January 28, 29 hold optimal prospects for taking advantage of the moment/for making great gains/strides. (It is also a suitable time for a move, for travel, a vacation, for expanding your repertoire, products, marketing/name brand, publishing, or knowledge base.) 

The most important item to report on is powerhouse Pluto on a sign change. Pluto correlates to your soul’s desire for growth and attainment. The sun (creative/actualizing principle) merges with Pluto at the very last minute of Capricorn (29 degrees, 59 minutes) before both advance into Aquarius on January 20 (the sun in the morning; Pluto just shy of 12 hours later). The sun is the creative actualizing principle. Pluto correlates to the drumbeat/baseline of the collective and personal soul evolution. It describes the metamorphic process; the compelling/non-negotiable evolutionary force. Pluto has been hard at work reformatting you from your core since it started its transit through Capricorn in 2008. No doubt, this transit has changed you and your life in a fundamental, no turning back way. You will feel the strongest impact of this year’s Pluto transit if you are born on or close to January 19, 20. These couple of days and through the end of the month (especially January 25 to 30) could produce significant world events/headline news. At an extreme, signature of an Aquarius transit can be destabilizing, disruptive, eruptive, explosive, sudden, unexpected, and accelerating. Even if this weekend comes and goes with little fanfare, it is monumental in terms of threshold crossing into the new frontier called our future.  

Occurring only once every 248 years, Pluto’s transit through Capricorn demarcates significant eras of collective history shaped by significant and intertwined endings and beginnings.  Every 248 years, Pluto in Aquarius marks revolutionary times of accelerated collective evolution (social and political uprisings, modernizations). The archetype of Capricorn correlates to the past. The archetype of Aquarius correlates to the future. 2024 sets the clock onto an acceleration track regarding the transition between past and future. Pluto in Aquarius is the signature transit of climate change (actual, social, political, and ideological).  If you are interested to know more about the influence of Pluto in Aquarius, please check out my article which is posted on my website or in a back issue of the CIA Timelords magazine.

Pluto will return to Capricorn from September 1 to November 19. This time frame will be significant for you if you are born on or close to January 19 20. It marks the finalization timetable for Pluto in Capricorn, and a finishing touch phase for you. It marks the end of a 16-year chapter and brings you to the starting gate of the next 20-year chapter of your life.  

A full moon in Leo on January 25 precedes the end of Uranus retrograde on January 26, and a run of mobilization (take flight/trend setting) stars, starting with Mercury/Mars (conjunction) on January 27), Venus/Jupiter (trine) and Mercury/Uranus (trine) on January 28, and Mars/Uranus (trine on January 28. In ending its five-month retrograde cycle Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius, adds even more spark and fuel to the Pluto action. Uranus started in 2018 continues in Taurus to 2025/2026. Uranus serves to accelerate the reinvention of everything that constitutes value and meaning (from the mundane and material to all that we hold sacred and precious, to the ideologies by which we create our reality). It also accelerates everything that pertains to survival at all levels.  

Have you felt held up or unable to move it/yourself forward? That is about to change, big time. The shifts of Pluto and Uranus from retrograde to direct motion speed up mobility/mobilization. You should find you make good/faster progress in January, especially past the full moon on January 25. 

February (the start of a new two-year Mars/Venus cycle), March (lunar eclipse in Libra, March 24) and April also set wheels in motion. April 8 delivers a super new moon/total solar eclipse in Aries. The solar eclipse can set up a launch pad of significance, pertaining to your private life or professional life trajectory. A new material or personal life status can be in the works (newly single or new independence or entrepreneurial bid). Noting Mercury in Aries is retrograde from April 2 to 25, this new status could be something that has been previously attempted or undertaken. It could be a replay, repeat, or a second chance to go for the gold and/or get it right this time.

The first major transit of 2024 is Pluto’s entrance into Aquarius on January 20. The second major event of the year is the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction on April 20. This rare transit happens only once every 13 years, but it is in different signs each time. What was instigating or growing in scope in 2010/2011? The last time Jupiter/Uranus aligned in Taurus (same as April 20) happened in 1941 (WW2 escalates). Watch this date for something big/of major significance regarding money markets, trends, or survival. (Uranus and Aquarius rule atmospheric conditions, social/political, weather, and geophysical.) This Jupiter/Uranus merger can hold lucrative, life-altering, even exceptional/once in a lifetime, opportunity comes knocking for some. 

AQUARIUS, January 20 to February 18

Jupiter in Taurus ends a 4-month retrograde cycle on December 30. Mercury ends a 3-week retrograde cycle (that began in Capricorn and back-tracked into Sagittarius on December 22). The month ahead provides the opportunity to make better progress on things you have recently struggled with. Mars in Capricorn, starting on January, helps to you get it better organized and under control, but can ease your way along over the first week of the month. By January 9 and the week(s) that follow, you will feel/see an increase of momentum. Mars in Capricorn (to February 12) and Mercury in Capricorn (January 13 to February 4) turn your main attention away from the outer world and active social participation, and onto more personal life ambitions, priorities, and matters. Your world could see less of you, but that is simply because you are busy elsewhere.

Your life and your future is slated for a major overhaul. You can conjure, you can guess. Intuition will give you great insights or downloads. Still, what is on its way can prove to be beyond what you fathom right now. 2024 is the start of a few-year run of major outer planetary sign changes, starting with Pluto’s entrance into Aquarius on January 20. This transit, which happens only once every 248 years, will spend the next 20 years completely revolutionizing our/your day-to-day existence. You will feel the most potent effect of this transit if your birthday falls on or near January 21. If you are born later in the sign of Aquarius, you will have time to watch Pluto in play before it comes knocking on your door. Pluto is the agent of the soul for the collective and for the personal life journey. It correlates to the inevitable force of evolution. Pluto in Aquarius sets the clock onto acceleration regarding a reformat of how we create our reality at all levels, (social, political, and survival based). Pluto in Aquarius marks revolutionary chapters of history and major shifts of power (for example, the last cycle coincided with the French Revolution, 1777). The Pluto in Aquarius years also produce groundbreaking inventions and discoveries in science and technology that modernization quality of life for the collective. See my website for the article I wrote on this very important transit.)

On January 20, the sun (creative actualization process) and Pluto join forces at the very last minute of Capricorn before both make their sign changes. The sun enters Aquarius in the morning, Pluto enters Aquarius 11 hours later. January 19, 20 can be mobilizing in a take flight or enlarged in scope, break new ground way.  (Stay alert for headlines news). Watch for the end of November and December to continue the process/next phase of staging for what was instigated in January/February.  

The full moon in Leo on January 25 can continue that over-the-top trend. Opportunity is at peak but know there is a propensity to spend too much or expect too much, or to take it further than is wise. 

This full moon can set you free in a past a hurdle, springboard, or untethering way. Travelling with the brakes on no longer, on January 26, Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, ends its five-month retrograde cycle. January 27 to 29 puts the action into full swing. It is a suitable time to go for it, to travel, relocate, promote, broaden horizons, put yourself out there, or to take a risk as the opportunity presents itself. 

February 21, Mars/Venus (both in Aquarius) begin a new two-year cycle of personal, social, material and relationship reinvention. March 24 delivers a lunar eclipse in Libra (sign of relationships). April is the month to watch. Mercury tours retrograde in Aries (April 2 to April 25). April 8 delivers a super new moon/total solar eclipse in Aries. A solar eclipse in Aries sets something new into play that holds dynamic life force. Mercury’s retrograde cycle suggests a repeat or revisit moves into a whole new format, direction, or chapter. You may get a second chance or a do-over opportunity, one that can hold better odds than the first time around. 

The other most standout transit of the year is the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction on April 20. This rare transit happens every 13 years, but in a different sign each time. The last time this duo came together was in 2010/2011. What was instigating or growing in scope for you? The last time Jupiter/Uranus joined forces in Taurus was 1941 (WW2 escalation.) Jupiter enlarges and increases. Uranus reinvents. Together, this duo places you at the starting gate of a completely reinvented personal life/home life/family trajectory. You can feel the fullest effect of this transit if you are born on or near February 9, 10. Someone of significance could exit or enter your life. Jupiter/Uranus could produce a lucrative or life changing opportunity. It could be a time to buy or to sell real estate, to start your own business/a self-employment track. Late May, Jupiter will begin a one-year transit through Gemini (a complimentary air sign). This transit is a mobilizing and trend setting influence. Jupiter in Gemini can enhance social activities and prospects. It can see you undertaking studies, additional training, or keep you on the go with more variety and opportunity. It also puts more attention on siblings, friends, neighbours, and associations.

PISCES, February 18 to March 19

Jupiter ends a four-month retrograde cycle on December 30. Mercury ends a three-week retrograde cycle on January 1. As both move forward, you should feel you are gaining more solid ground, that you are making better use of your time and money, and that conversations are delivering better quality and satisfaction. Mars in Capricorn (January 4 to February 12), Mercury in Capricorn (January 13 to February 4), and Venus in Capricorn (January 23 to February 6) help you to stay organized and to get it under better control. All three personal planets keep you ambitious and goal oriented. It is a good look on you. Apply yourself, see the results. The next month or so is a time when you can get more than the usual accomplished, and in some cases, with less strain or sweat than at other times. January 11 (new moon in Capricorn) January 12, and January 19 onward, set the action into full swing.

On January 20, the sun meets with Pluto before both leave Capricorn (the past) for Aquarius (the future). Sun/Pluto conjunctions happen once every year, but rarely do they align as they do on January 20 – at the very last minute of Capricorn! Symbolically (perhaps in actuality too), this culminating transit marks a finality of significance. A chapter ends, a new one immediately springs to life. The threshold is crossed on January 20, but know that Pluto will revisit Capricorn one last time, from September 1 to November 19. This review period marks a finish-it-off, phase or checkback to see if anything important has been overlooked before full steam ahead.

January 25, the full moon in Leo sets up the potential to hit a jackpot (love, money, success, special event or recognition, reward, happiness), but with Jupiter’s influence, grand expectations are in the mix too. There can be a tendency to indulge or spend more than you should. This full moon could bring something exciting (news, an event to attend.) It is excellent for creative projects/endeavours. Something or someone new could fast track you into a whole new adventure!  On another note, the illuminating full moon can shine a brighter light on the topic of personal satisfaction and reward. It can give you the confidence you need to make a break for it and to take a risk on personal/lifestyle reinvention. 

Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, ends a five-month retrograde on January 26. This transit “breaks the sound barrier” on your internal dialogue. It prompts a new thinking and observe it in action process. A new perspective is emerging regarding self discovery and self worth, on relationship and communication tracks, on what you find holds value and meaning to you personally. This Uranus transit can trigger new interests, capacities, friendships, a new income stream, and/or a new lifestyle. January 27 to 29 marks get it off the ground, take flight time. Take full advantage of the moment. Move, travel, expand your marketing, repertoire, skill set or education; teach, explore, launch a new business or project, set yourself free, get to know someone new. 

February 21 begins a new two-year Venus/Mars relationship reinvention cycle, self to self included (or perhaps, first and foremost). March 24 delivers a lunar eclipse in Libra (relationships, social matters). In addition to the second half of January, April is the other most significant month to watch. A total solar eclipse/super new moon in Aries happens on April 8. Coinciding with the eclipse and the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction (next paragraph), Mercury tours retrograde in Aries (April 2 to 25). This suggests a repeat or revisit may give you the opportunity to truly/finally severe ties, or a second chance to regain what you have lost (i.e. confidence, courage, peace of mind/heart; absolute conviction; yourself in the process). You can make a significant turnaround (if even just for yourself.) 

April 20, Jupiter and Uranus form a rare conjunction. This meet-up happens only once every 13 years, but in different signs each time. The last time this duo joined forces was in 2010/2011. Was something instigating or growing in scope for you? The last time Jupiter and Uranus joined forces in Taurus (as they do on April 20) was in 1941 (WW2 escalated). Jupiter increases. Uranus reinvents, often in an abrupt, unexpected, exciting, disruptive, or liberating way.  Jupiter/Uranus in Taurus has the potential to be lucrative and full of potential. As such it is a good date to launch a new financial venture or to invest in someone or something. If nothing of note happens to you on this date, know the groundwork is laid for discovering fresh opportunity and for building it better from here. Whatever happens in the world, could happen on a large scale. (Taurus is a survival and mortality archetype. Uranus also produces weather extremes, earthquakes, and such.)

Saturn continues in Pisces to 2026. Jupiter advances into Gemini late May. Encompassing election season (for the USA and elsewhere) Pluto dips back into Capricorn from September 1 to November 19. I will have more to say on the second half of the year in later writings.

Pluto in Aquarius, the Evolutionary Astrology Perspective:

Leaving no stone unturned, Pluto’s transit through Aquarius marks a time of significant and lasting change at all levels of existence. A preview of the future and its mandate is already well in evidence. It is readily witnessed through increasing threats to survival on the planet caused by Mother Nature and by human choices, through innovations in science and technology that serve to accelerate the revolutionising of daily life, and through the growing number of souls that are awakening to a higher level of consciousness. Considering that Pluto correlates to evolution and Aquarius to liberation, the potential for profound inner change and soul growth is at its prime. How can you best ready yourself for the years ahead?
