Your 2024 Aquarius Horoscope: A Year to Step Up

Read your yearly horoscope to see what lies ahead

You’re moving into the spotlight this year, Aquarius, and there’s probably both good and bad to that. You might receive more scrutiny than you prefer. On the other hand, perhaps you’ve got important things to show to the world!

Pluto’s stay in your native sign pushes you forward

Key Dates: January 20, September 1, November 19

The big news of 2024 is that powerful Pluto is moving into your sign -- first from January 20 to September 1, and then to stay for the next 20 years starting November 19. You’ve been preparing for this, whether you know it or not, as Pluto has been cleaning out your 12th House of the Subconscious since 2008. This may have shown you what you don’t want. Pinning down what you do want, however, is likely to be another story. You might not be able to make everyone happy as you redefine yourself, but your growing authenticity can inspire them to find theirs.

Intense desires demand satisfaction, thanks to Venus

Key Dates: February 16-March 11, December 7-31

Love planet Venus is in your sign twice during 2024: from February 16 to March 11, and from December 7 through the end of the year. Both times, she meets up with intense Pluto, first on February 17 and then on December 7. Your desires, romantic and otherwise, could feel supercharged, and you might be tempted to bend the rules to get what you want. Venus goads overbearing Jupiter on February 24, perhaps encouraging you to push too far. On December 19, Venus engages with Jupiter more harmoniously, giving you a welcome boost toward the risks that are worth taking.

Communicate carefully at the Total Solar Eclipse

Key Date: April 8

The Total Solar Eclipse on April 8 affects your 3rd House of Communication. Eclipses tend to make things harder to see, so talking to others could be frustrating at this time. Even if someone else is legitimately in the wrong somehow, you can only truly control what you bring to the equation. Strengthening the way you organize your thoughts, perhaps through journaling, may help you bring your best self to any challenging conversation. Also, consider that you might express yourself better in writing -- it gives you a chance to ensure you don’t leave anything important out.

Jupiter’s stay in Gemini lifts your spirits

Key Dates: May 25, June 2, August 19, December 24

On May 25, Jupiter moves into your playful 5th house. Under this influence, which lasts for the rest of the year, you’re equipped to be especially creative and witty. As Jupiter harmonizes with Pluto on June 2, getting attention on purpose could be a wise move. With magnetic Pluto in your sign, you’re likely to be noticed no matter what you do, so you should try your best to make sure it’s for something good. Financial limits might push you to focus your desires as Jupiter strains against restrictive Saturn in your finance sector on August 19 and December 24.

Mercury Retrogrades challenge relationships

Key Dates: April 1-25, August 5-28, November 25-December 15

Your relationships may require patience during this year’s Mercury Retrogrades. Mercury is retrograde in your communication sector from April 1 to 25, intensifying the potential for misunderstanding on and around the Total Solar Eclipse. Pushing to talk things out right away might make any conflict worse, so wait until everyone involved is ready. Another potential trouble spot for getting along with others is when Mercury Retrograde affects your 8th House of Intimacy and 7th House of Partnerships from August 5 to 28. Finally, Mercury goes retrograde in your social zone from November 25 to December 15, perhaps bringing old friends back into your life.

Pluto’s push toward personal growth could challenge you this year, Aquarius, but it doesn’t have to be all bad. If you’re able to find the potential for creativity and even fun in any upheaval you experience, you’re likely to attract the allies you need!
