January 2024 Astrology Forecast: January 2024 is a time of significant evolutionary acceleration. Throughout the month, Mercury and Uranus station direct, respectively in Sagittarius and Taurus, and three personal planets enter Capricorn, reminding us of the value of dedication and integrity. On January 11, we are going to experience a New Moon in Capricorn, a powerful opportunity to get clear about our intentions and visions for the year ahead. The highlight of the month is undoubtedly Pluto’s ingress into Aquarius, together with the Sun, on January 20. The beginning of Aquarius season and Pluto’s second ingress in the sign bring our attention to our personal individuation and deconditioning journeys, as well as to collective social shifts and our transition to the Age of Aquarius. As the month comes to an end, the Full Moon in Leo opposite Pluto invites us to reflect on the ongoing dance between creation and destruction.
Here are the main astrological events for January 2024.
Mercury stations direct in Sagittarius
Jan 1, 2024, 22:07 EST
As the calendar year begins, Mercury stations direct in Sagittarius after being in retrograde motion since December 13, 2023. From now on, we have chances to gain a new understanding of the experiences we had while Mercury was retrograde. Mercury’s shift of motion is an invitation to take action according to the insights we got during the past weeks and to clarify any misunderstandings and miscommunications that might have occurred. While Mercury is in direct motion through Sagittarius, we have an opportunity to make choices and implement adjustments in our reality according to how our beliefs, worldviews, and perspectives changed during the retrograde phase.

Mars enters Capricorn
Jan 4, 2024, 09:58 EST
Mars’ ingress into Capricorn, the sign of his exaltation, brings a boost of determination and stamina, supporting our energy levels and our desire to make things happen. In Capricorn, Mars expresses his qualities in a structured, organized, and practical way: this combination of energies supports self-motivation and self-determination. This transit supports our endurance and perseverance: while Mars is here, we want to build something tangible and long-lasting with our energy. Mars’ journey through Capricorn inspires us to work hard and be self-disciplined. During this transit, it is important to assess the true motivations behind our desires and to reflect on whether our idea of success has been distorted by societal or familial programming.
New Moon in Capricorn
Jan 11, 2024, 06:57 EST
The New Moon at 20º Capricorn happens in wide conjunction with Pluto at 29º of the sign and trine Uranus in Taurus. This lunation is the first New Moon of the calendar year and offers us an invitation to plant seeds, set practical intentions, and clarify our visions for the year ahead. Any New Moon in Capricorn asks us what we aim to build and what we are willing to commit to for the long term. The activation of Pluto offers us an invitation to deeply reflect on how we have transformed as well as about how our long-term desires and visions have transformed in the last years. The trines between the Sun, the Moon, and Uranus will inspire us to be unconventional and daring in following our Soul’s call, even when it doesn’t conform to others’ expectations.
Mercury enters Capricorn
Jan 13, 2024, 21:50 EST
Mercury continues its post-shadow phase and enters Capricorn, where its retrograde originally began back in December. Mercury’s transit through Capricorn brings our attention to how our mind is structured and invites us to gain mastery over our thinking patterns and inner dialogue. This transit is an opportunity to improve our mental discipline and our organization skills and supports our efforts in restructuring our thinking habits and communication patterns. Mercury in Capricorn offers us an invitation to deepen our awareness of how past conditioning still affects our way of thinking and perceiving reality, as well as how we speak to ourselves. This transit also reminds us of the value of keeping our word and matching what we say with what we do.
Aquarius season begins & Pluto enters Aquarius
Jan 20, 2024, 09:08 EST & Jan 20, 2024, 19:51 EST
Every year, Aquarius season comes to remind us to celebrate our uniqueness and embrace individual differences. This time of the year reminds us of the power of connection and collaboration and of the value of creating and growing together. The Sun’s journey through Aquarius brings our attention to our relationship with our communities and with the larger human collective, inviting us to reflect not only on how our communities can support us, but also on how we can serve our communities.
Pluto’s transit through Aquarius is going to last until 2044, and this shift marks a turning point in our personal and collective evolution. Pluto’s upcoming transit through the sign of the Water Bearer catalyzes a change in the relationship between individuals and society, inviting each of us to embrace a new level of personal responsibility. Pluto in Aquarius calls for empowerment and individuation: this shift is a call to take charge of our lives and focus on unlearning old ways of coping and survival strategies that kept us safe in the past, yet hold us back from full, authentic expression.
Venus enters Capricorn
Jan 23, 2024, 03:51 EST
Venus’ ingress into Capricorn encourages a practical and grounded approach to both love and finances, inspiring us to value security and long-term investments rather than immediate gratification. During this time, the focus is on our maturation process, particularly in the context of relationships. This transit invites a conscious approach to connection, emphasizing self-respect as well as awareness about our and others’ boundaries. Venus in Capricorn offers an opportunity to recognize how our past experiences and conditioning still influence our present decisions, both in romance and in finances. This transit represents a favorable time to observe our attitudes toward commitment and responsibility and challenge the belief that commitment and freedom are mutually exclusive.
Full Moon in Leo
Jan 25, 2024, 12:53 EST
During a time of strong emphasis on the opposite sign of Aquarius, the Full Moon in Leo opposite Pluto brings up intense feelings and emotions. This lunation marks a time of creative and emotional maturation and could draw our attention to indirect, subtle ways we try to have our needs for attention, recognition, and validation met. Leo represents the full expression of Self, the blossoming of our creative potential, while Pluto represents the necessary deaths, releases, and transformations that are also a part of life and of any creative process. This Full Moon brings our attention to the interplay between creation and destruction and may offer us opportunities to reflect on what needs to die in our lives to free up creative energy.
Uranus stations direct in Taurus
Jan 27, 2024, 02:35 EST
For the last few years, Uranus’ transit through Taurus has been bringing our definition of stability and security up for discussion. Uranus’ shifts of motion always correspond to times of increased unpredictability, unexpected turning points, and general acceleration of the pace of events. As Uranus begins to move forward again, we have opportunities to take action according to what we learned during his retrograde phase. This event invites us to act in order to align our external reality with the way our values have changed throughout the last few months. Uranus stationing direct increases the dynamism and the momentum, as well as the intensity of feelings of restlessness and discontent, which may inspire many of us to make radical changes at this time.
January 2024 Astrology Forecast: Our Invitation
2024 is another year colored by the energy of Pluto and his dance between Capricorn and Aquarius: this is a dance between past and future, between the old paradigm and the new paradigm, between the known and the unknown. As with all transitional periods, this shift is characterized by chaos: many situations are coming to a breaking point, long-standing issues are erupting in extreme ways to push us to find new solutions and explore new ways of dealing with them.
The month of January 2024 will remind us, once again, that things cannot go on as they always have: the status quo is no longer sustainable. With Pluto entering Aquarius and Uranus, Aquarius’ modern ruler, stationing direct in Taurus, the pressure will be on, and the pace of events will speed up significantly. As we enter a time of significant evolutionary acceleration, we can expect to experience both substantial social changes and deep inner transformations affecting each of us individually.
