As we enter a new year, those born in 1976/1977 under the Chinese signs of the dragon or snake are in for a particularly auspicious time!
Numerologically, 2024 is a sturdy number 8, symbolising Strength in the Tarot. It’s a year twice as stable as The Emperor (4), yet infused with the powerful fluidity of the infinity symbol found in both the Strength card and The Magician! Speaking of which…
Mercury Direct in Sagittarius (January 1st – The Magician and Eight of Wands):
The cosmic magician, Mercury (The Magician in the Tarot), waves its wand on New Year’s Day, turning direct in adventurous Sagittarius. This enchanting gesture opens the year like a door, inviting us to witness the unveiling of new possibilities. Mercury’s direct motion brings clarity and direction to our thoughts, urging us to embrace open-mindedness and expand our horizons.
Mars enters Capricorn (January 4th – The Three of Pentacles):
Dynamic and willful Mars (the wand in The Magician) takes centre stage, exalting itself in disciplined Capricorn. As opportunities manifest upon The Magician’s altar, expect golden moments to unfold before your eyes – sheer will, determination, and a touch of The Magician empower us to take measured steps toward our goals, emphasising manifestation as half luck and half hard work, where perseverance and long-term planning make the most of the seed presented to you.
New Moon in Capricorn (January 11th – The Queen of Pentacles):
The journey continues with the New Moon in ambitious Capricorn, unfolding like the imagery of The Queen of Pentacles. This lunar event invites us to set intentions for the year ahead, focusing on practical goals and career aspirations and laying a solid foundation for personal and professional growth.
Reasonable boundaries and rules offer us freedom – freedom from worry and chaos. Setting goals for ourselves allows us to focus on what matters.
This lunation harmonises beautifully with Uranus, pointing to a strong intuition, a good feeling of progress, and a healthy relationship with change. Coupled with the upcoming moves into Uranus-ruled Aquarius, your urge to be helpful in society and align with your inner values heightens.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 20 degrees and 44 minutes of Capricorn, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 17 to 25 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
Juno Retrograde in Virgo (January 12th – The Hermit):
As we delve deeper into the month, relationship dynamics come under scrutiny. Juno turns retrograde in detail-oriented Virgo, symbolised by The Hermit. This introspective period encourages us to reassess commitments and address unresolved relationship issues, fostering personal growth.
Mercury enters Capricorn (January 13th – The Knight of Pentacles):
The narrative unfolds further as Mercury joins the Capricorn party, embodying The Knight of Pentacles, encouraging strategic thinking and practical communication. Harness this energy to articulate ambitions and engage in productive conversations supporting long-term objectives.
Pluto enters Aquarius (January 20th – The Queen of Swords):
Time takes a curious turn as we venture into the future. Events between March and June of 2023 gave us an initial glimpse of the upcoming 20-year run of Pluto in Aquarius. Reflect and journal about the past on the micro and macro levels to see your future.
Sun enters Aquarius (January 20th – The Fool and Star):
An auspicious day unfolds as the Sun (life) joins transformative Pluto (death). Bold, capitalised, and underlined, this event signals the arrival of Pluto for transformation and rebirth. It’s time to set intentions for the long game – think innovatively, envision unconventionally, and ensure it’s for the highest good.
Venus enters Capricorn (January 23rd – The Page of Pentacles):
The celestial journey continues with Venus, represented by The Page of Pentacles, adding another layer of seriousness to our relationships and finances as it enters pragmatic Capricorn. It’s time to focus on rebuilding foundations for enduring connections based on mutual respect and shared goals.
Full Moon in Leo (January 25th – The Queen of Wands):
It’s time to express ourselves and let things out of our systems. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional and burst into our consciousness.
Plus, this Full Moon forms a square to Jupiter, urging caution against exaggeration or overshooting associated with our revelations.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 5 degrees and 15 minutes of Leo, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 1 to 9 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.
Uranus Direct in Taurus (January 27th – The Tower and The High Priest)
And finally! (In more ways than one!) Having been retrograde, Uranus turns direct in Taurus, mirroring and supporting the mass shift in stability and innovation. Expect breakthroughs and a renewed focus on material and financial advancements!
As January unfolds, the astrological landscape presents a blend of grounded determination, visionary thinking, and opportunities for personal and collective transformation.
Embrace the energy of change, align with your purpose, and navigate the month confidently and intentionally. May this be a month of growth, self-discovery, and the unfolding of your unique journey.
It’s time to put aside dreaming and wanting, and it’s time to start taking action by creating a 12-month plan and setting up milestones along the way so that you can measure your successes.
Your unique journey awaits!
