While it won’t happen overnight, and there will be an overlapping that allows for a smooth transition, the two planets that will have a big influence on the year as a whole will see a focus shift from income and job matters and onto a chapter where there is a lot more focus on communication and your relationships. While this is happening independently of the other because Jupiter and Pluto will start and end the year in harmony, but with a different focus, there is a link between the two. New Year’s Day is Jupiter’s first full day back in direct motion in your work sector and having just turned direct on New Year’s Day, this takes the brakes of this professional year from the start. While Jupiter will remain at a standstill for several weeks and especially with Uranus still in retrograde motion here until 27th January, this marks the third and final stage in your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade.
The push will be on to make these final months count and while Jupiter will leave on 26th May, it is not until Mars leaves on 21st July that everything will have run its course. This makes 2024 a huge year for work and job matters and especially the first half. The pace will have really started to pick up by the time the Sun returns on 20th April and Venus on 28th May. Meanwhile, the year also begins with Pluto in your income sector, as has every other year since his return in 2008. This has put Jupiter and Pluto in harmony since Jupiter’s return to your work sector in May 2023, with his and the Sun’s departure on 21st January ending their partnership, for now anyway. With Mars in your income sector from 5th January to 13th February and Venus from 23rd January to 17th February, support for Jupiter and for work and job matters as they pick up speed will continue.
However, Pluto will have returned to your communication sector by then, where apart from when he retrogrades back into your income sector for 11 weeks from 2nd September to 20th November, he will spend the next 20 years. This means that Pluto will be here and ready to support Jupiter from the start, when he returns to begin his 13-month visit to your relationship sector on 26th May. Jupiter will move straight into a friendly aspect to Pluto, with a chance for the planets of luck and change to form a new partnership, one that will focus on communication and your relationships right through to June 2025. This will also put both in harmony with the South Node, which will spend the whole year in your friendship sector.
While the early and latter weeks or months of each year are always going to be the most lucrative, until now the income side of the financial fence has remained active for most if not all of the year, due to the fact that you have had Pluto in your income sector since 2008. However, that began to change when after 15 years the planet of change and revolution left, though returned less than three months later. Pluto has been back in your income sector since June 2023 and until Mercury and the Sun returned in December, on his own. The Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your income sector, so the solar spotlight is always going to be on your income situation, matters and options moving into the New Year and for the last 16 years, Pluto has been there as well.
However, this will be the last time that you move into the new solar year with Pluto in your income sector, for while he will return for 11 weeks later in the year, by the end of the year, he will be gone, and it will be centuries before he returns again. Yet Pluto is here now and as the planet of change and revolution and with nearly 16 years of his influence under your belt, there is a chance to take a bold approach to where you can change things up. However, it is once the Sun and Pluto leave that the real breakthroughs are likely to take place and especially while Mars is here from 5th January to 13th February and Venus, from 23rd January to 17th February. These are the planets that are the most adept at exploiting income potential.
Apart from a pair of Full Moons, the first on 22nd June and then another just a month later on 21st July and the Moon’s ordinary monthly visits, once Venus and Mars leave your income sector it will remain empty until Pluto returns for a short 11 week visit from 2nd September to 20th November. With Venus back again from 12th November to 7th December, she will return in time to exploit any parting gifts as Pluto leaves for the last time. Meanwhile, with your income sector empty from 17th February to 2nd September, this means that when the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through your financial sector, there will be a chance to give money matters your full attention from 17th June to 22nd July. However, with Mars returning from 5th September to 4th November, he will clash with Pluto, but with the planets of war and revolution going head-to-head as they fight for dominance, this will empower both sides of the financial fence.
While with the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos in your romantic sector for nine decades and not due to leave for another three and planetary activity in your relationship sector, this does not fully reveal what this year has to offer especially on the relationship front. The North Node has been in your romantic sector since July 2023 and until it leaves in January 2025 it will not only give matters of the heart a sense of direction but will turn the New Moon in your romantic sector on 9th April into a total solar eclipse. However, that won’t happen until after the Sun returns on 20th March, with things becoming more active on the romantic front when Mercury returns 10 days earlier, on 10th March.
This should be the start of a 14-to-15-day chance to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page but instead, a retrograde turn on 2nd April will keep the planet of communication here until 16th May. It is during that time that, as well as the Sun moving through Venus, the planet of love will move through from 5th April to 28th April, while Mars will return for his first visit in two years from 1st May to 9th June. It is while the planets of love and passion are here that you will have some of the most romantically charged weeks of the year. Once Mars leaves, things will quieten down on the romantic front, but by then, something special will be developing on the relationship front.
It begins with the Sun’s return to your relationship sector on 21st May, something that will always turn the solar spotlight onto your relationships at this time each year. However, it is less than a week later that everything will change, with Jupiter returning for his first visit to your relationship sector in 12 years on 26th May. This begins your biggest and most expansive year for all your relationships in over a decade and until leaving on 10th June 2025, you will have the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system here. Helping to get this important journey off to the right start will not only be the Sun but with Venus, moving through from 24th May to 17th June, and Mercury from 3rd June to 17th June, with the planets of love and communication leaving on the same day. It is over a month later that Mars will move through from 21st July to 5th September, with the planets of passion and luck on their own for over six weeks.
Things will just be starting to wake up on the job front as you move into the New Year with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, having just turned direct in your work sector on New Year’s Eve but with Uranus still in retrograde motion and not turning direct until 27th January. This gives you a chance to move into this new professional year with one eye still on the road behind, another on the road ahead, but with both planets at a standstill with a chance to stand back before jumping into anything. With Jupiter leaving and bringing your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade to an end when he leaves your work sector on 26th May, there could be a sense of anticipation that creates a sense of impatience if you feel like things aren’t moving, but you not only have luck on your side but time.
It is not until Jupiter’s final weeks that everything is likely to come together, with a chance until then to ease your way into things and let the planet of luck and expansion take the lead. Knowing that once he leaves, he won’t be back for another 12 years but also that Uranus will stay on until 2026 to continue what he started, Jupiter is focused on the big picture and not just on the low-hanging fruit that you can snatch and grab as you race through. Jupiter will slowly pick up speed and if you keep pace, things will start moving and come together. However, the real push to bring things home will begin when the Sun returns from 20th April to 21st May, Venus from 28th April to 24th May and Mercury from 16th May to 3rd June. The Sun and Venus will leave just days before Jupiter leaves and Mercury will stay on a few days after to tie up loose ends.
However, it is after Jupiter leaves that you could achieve your greatest breakthroughs on the job front, with Mars returning from 9th July to 21st July to exploit and run with the momentum already created. What makes the timing of Mars’ visit significant is that he will not only keep work and job matters active and the momentum Jupiter has created going, but this will create little space between the end of the most active months of the job front and the first planetary activity on the career front this year. Mars will leave your work sector on 9th July and Mercury will return to your career sector on 26th July, with a chance to piggyback off the momentum created on the job front. Along with the Sun and Venus, this will keep things active on the career front until 26th September.
