Embracing the Vision of Change
2024 launches us into the new beginnings we clarified (or experienced) in 2023. After two years of great uncertainty, and last year re-finding a sense of direction, along with continual change, surprise, and letting go, 2024 takes up the thread of essentials from last year with forward movement. It’s helpful to look back to 2023 and review what decisions were made that now lead you/us forward. Collectively, we are still in uncertain times, times of transformation, change and renewal, of letting go and reassessing, (see below on Pluto changing signs). Based on decisions made and values clarified, 2024 encourages one to breakthrough to new places, find what inspires you, and grow in your ability to hold your sense of purpose, a vaster vision of interconnectedness, and conscious sustainable living.
Humanity is in an alchemical vessel of being cooked into transformation. The intensity between the old and the new ways increases, as we are polarized between the past and future, in this change of the ages. Aquarius is the fertile field in which we now find ourselves. What will our ideas and perspectives create for us? We struggle, like a huge serpent shedding its skin, for which values will lead us forward, being dominated by old world views, or will the positive visions for needed change and transformation gain momentum to create the new era? The next few years will form the answer.
With Mercury retrograde from mid December to January 1st, taking time to gather your intentions, to review what’s unfolded in 2023, and to clarify where you now, sets a positive launching pad for the movement and new projects in 2024. The beginning of the year supports planning, organizing, and learning, leading to a Spring of inspiration, breakthroughs, and beginnings. This is a year of lots of communication, connections, and possibilities. Midyear Jupiter enters airy Gemini while trining Pluto in Aquarius and enlarges upon the themes of transformation. There is strong energy for reform and regeneration.
2024, the year of the Wood Dragon in Chinese astrology
Begins February 9th (February 10th in China), at the 2nd New Moon after the Winter Solstice. We feel its energy entering in January
On February 9-10 we move into the dynamic year of the Dragon. A Dragon year will be fast moving and high energy with intensity. A symbol of the magical, mystical, and magnificent, the dragon can lift our spirits into passionate creativity. A year of transformation. In China, the dragon represents the Emperor, highly regarded, possessing power, eagerness, and zeal. It is said to be an excellent year to start a business, to travel, get married, have a child, and new endeavors will carry the passions of this Dragon year. In a Dragon year taking risks and pursuing goals are supported. The energy of the year can carry an exuberance of mission and daring. Though one must watch going to extremes, actions taken can manifest in success, or illusions of grandeur that fail dramatically. We can imagination the undulations of the flying Dragon to bring about extremes in earth motions, earthquakes, great waves, and volcanic eruptions. Finances and investments may fluctuate as well.
The element of Wood is the element of the Dragon in 2024. The wood element supports formulating and implementing ideas while working cooperatively with others. (Combine this with Pluto in Aquarius and Jupiter conjuncting Uranus and you have an excellent year for implementing your ideas, community efforts and projects). Wood is the element of Spring and implies quick growth, sudden breakthroughs.
Mercury retrograde goes direct on January 1st, at 22 Sagittarius, conjunct Mars
Mercury goes direct on January 1st like a green light allowing forward movement and decisive action as it is conjunct Mars in fiery and direct Sagittarius. It catches up with Mars, once again, in practical Capricorn on January 27th. (It had conjuncted Mars on Dec 27 when retrograde as well). A time to be direct, decisive, and focused toward our goals. The grand Earth trine with Sun, Jupiter, and the Moon (on the 1st) suggest staying grounded, especially with the shifts and changes of Pluto moving from Capricorn to Aquarius on the 20th. Jupiter and Saturn sextile as well in January, creating the energy for ideas and plans to be steady and enduring. (Chiron conjuncts the North Node in February).
Since mid December, what has become clearer? What priorities do we now see in going forward? What ideas and thoughts have now been clarified, so action can take place?
On January 20, 2024, Pluto enters Aquarius once again.
(In September of 2024, Pluto drops back into the last degree of Capricorn, until November of 2024 when it fully enters Aquarius).
As Pluto finishes its movement through Capricorn, we experience the liminal space of being in the in-between. This is the last year that Pluto moves between the two signs Capricorn and Aquarius. We can experience this in 2024 as an intense need, with the timing being crucial, to solve systemic problems, while at the same time holding the vision and acting upon new beginnings.
The 29th degree, being the last degree of the sign (“Anaretic degree”), is known for having the challenging task of resolving the themes of the sign. With Pluto transiting the last degrees of Capricorn in 2023 & 24, there is a reckoning with governing forces, and the organization of systems we share. As Pluto enters Aquarius developing themes will focus on community development and concerns, and visions for the future. Collaboration with others can have transformative impacts, and issues of polarization will be confronted.
On January 20, 2024, Pluto enters Aquarius once again.
We experience Pluto’s sign change as being involved in powerful endings, while we feel the pull of new beginnings.
As you think about the house that Pluto will be transiting (the house in your chart with Aquarius, focusing on the 1st degree of Aquarius and the last degree of Capricorn) you can imagine that Pluto disrupts the normalcy of routines and taken for granted perspectives. Suddenly we experience the need to let go, to release, and allow something new to emerge. But as Pluto moves between signs we may have to return to something of the old to complete and resolve an issue, or pattern that no longer works. We can choose to align ourselves with the process of change, knowing we are in a dynamic initiation into new states of being and awareness.
In the sign Aquarius, Pluto begins the process of revealing, de-structuring and transforming how we connect with each other and create community. Pluto will focus our attention on equality of community members, highlighting the disenfranchised. Aquarius rules technology, social media and the digital world. Here, Pluto exposes what’s working, what’s not working in social media, exposing the underlying structures that motivate the companies and individuals involved. Its forces will expose and enact transformation around social media, the technology in the digital plane, including digital money, and issues around AI, etc. Pluto in Aquarius brings up the creativity and transformative qualities of AI as well as the dangers and complications of AI use. Aquarius is the sign of revolution and AI activates revolutionary possibilities on many levels in our culture and society. Pluto in Aquarius will uncover and expose hidden agendas around the use of AI, as well as empowering transformation with its creative use in 2024. Pluto in Aquarius will bring out the hidden agenda of the Surveillance Capitalism in which we live, to be evaluated for and by the community. As Pluto begins its journey in Aquarius agendas will be set for the themes over the next 2 decades, until 2043, when Pluto enters Pisces. We will see the redesigning of both the architecture and building of communities, and the nature of community. It’s a time for community involvement, planning, and action.
The myth of Aquarius teaches us about living in both worlds, the world of the Gods (inspired creative consciousness) and the world of humans (conditioned ways of being). Where will our values spring from? It is possible that the Aquarian scientific and technology revolution will supercharge innovation and new inventions, how we care for each other, and how we feel connected?
With Pluto in Capricorn finishing its Pluto return in the USA chart, our collective values become the issue. What kind of government and governing structures shall we have? Are we conscious of what we are creating? We are at a potent crossroads. (sign up for Susan’s 2024 talk to hear about the USA’s chart and the dynamics of this election year).
The Jupiter Saturn cycle and placement
The Jupiter Saturn cycle in 2024, begins in a harmonious and supportive sextile to each other in January. By August, they square each other, creating an important turning point in what we as a society, and individually, are creating.
With Jupiter from 5-11 Taurus sextiling Saturn from 5-11 Pisces through March, planning, studying, learning and teaching comes more easily. It marks a good time to expand a business, or start a new endeavor. The expansiveness of Jupiter is in harmony with the structuring, stability and enduring powers of Saturn.

Significant series of harmonious Jupiter transits move us forward until August, when the Jupiter Saturn square has us slowing to take stock, make corrections and face realities.
