Your 2024 Virgo Horoscope: A Year to Surrender and Flow
Read your yearly horoscope to see what lies ahead
Relaxing your grip on your life may be necessary this year, Virgo. You might be buffeted a bit by the circumstances of other people -- or even the demands of your own body. That said, knowing what to let slide can help you identify the opportunities for leadership you have.
Pluto shows you your physical limits
Key Dates: January 20, September 1, November 19
Understanding what is and is not within your control may be crucial during 2024. While transformative Pluto has been transiting your 5th House of Self-Expression over the past several years, perhaps you’ve had a fair amount of power to reinvent yourself. You might discover the limits of that approach when Pluto moves into your 6th House of Wellness from January 20 to September 1. Under this influence, you might be less impressed by any diet or exercise programs that promise quick fixes. After a brief backtrack, Pluto parks itself in your 6th house from November 19 onward -- so beware of self-improvement efforts crossing the line into unhealthy obsession.
The Total Solar Eclipse could bring powerful changes
Key Date: April 8
Intense life transitions are possible as the Total Solar Eclipse strikes your 8th House of Transformation on April 8. The 8th house sometimes gets a scary reputation for being associated with death. However, it can refer to any major change that you don’t have full control over. This doesn’t have to be all bad -- for example, a financial windfall might make it possible for you to pursue a goal you’d thought was impossible. Even a positive development of this sort could shift how you see yourself, so don’t be too alarmed if you’re having trouble adjusting to something you expected to be happier about.
Jupiter in Gemini provides professional opportunities
Key Dates: May 25, June 2, August 19, December 24
On May 25, exuberant Jupiter enters your 10th House of Career and stays there for the rest of the year, helping you move toward your goals -- or discover new ones! While Jupiter supports Pluto on June 2, altering your daily routine could help build a foundation for your success. That said, Jupiter’s clash against frustrating Saturn in your partnership sector on August 19 and December 24 could inspire someone you’re close with to be unhappy about what’s changing. They won’t necessarily be upset forever, but see if they have any valid complaints you can address in the meantime.
Venus in Virgo reminds you to weigh your options with love and money
Key Dates: August 4-29
Romantic Venus is in your sign from August 4 to 29. During this time, she runs right into the conflict between expansive Jupiter and constricting Saturn on August 19. In matters of both love and money, you may be unsure whether to make a commitment or hold out for a better offer. The best answer probably depends on your motivation. Fear can push you into a bad choice, regardless of what scares you the most. Fully appreciating all the pros and cons of your decision is more likely a sign you’re on the right track.
Mercury Retrogrades stir up the feels
Key Dates: April 1-25, August 5-28, November 25-December 15
The Mercury Retrograde periods of 2024 could be emotional times for you. The first full one, in your intense 8th house from April 1 to 25, adds confusion to the upheaval of the Total Solar Eclipse. Try to get as much information as you can before you make any major decisions. From August 5 to 28, Mercury Retrograde affects your 1st House of Identity and 12th House of the Subconscious. Something that upsets you during this time might be worth exploring further. Finally, when Mercury turns retrograde in your 4th House of Roots from November 25 to December 15, you may want to question assumptions you’ve carried your whole life.
Although it’s probably easier said than done, resisting the urge to control things can make your path through 2024 smoother. Your rational side may sometimes be out of its depth, but your intuition can seize the opportunity to shine if you let it!
