Welcome to your horoscope for January 2024. The year begins positively, with the end of Mercury Retrograde. See horoscope profiles for all 12 zodiac signs by longtime Almanac astrologer Celeste Longacre. 

January 2024 Horoscope

On the 1st of January, planet Mercury ends its period of apparent retrograde motion at 10:08 PM (EST); communications will flow much better now. Significant decisions can be made, especially those you’ve been holding off on. Look at the unique perspectives that you got the past few weeks and measure them with your natural checks and balances, now back in place. See Mercury Retrograde Dates.

On the 20th of this month, the Sun and planet Pluto enter the sign of Aquarius. It takes Pluto from 18 to 31 years to travel through a zodiac sign, so its placement in a natal chart represents a generational tendency. For all of us, its current placement represents the focus of our issues. 

  • Capricorn—where it was—is concerned with form, foundations, governments, goals & how society is structured. 
  • Its passage into Aquarius hints that we may be looking at how we are in groups, challenges to freedom & what is good for humanity now. 

It will be important to look at all sides & be open to discussion as we navigate our future. As Aquarius can be somewhat detached, don’t let it lull you into a lack of concern for what is happening in our world; vote, attend school board meetings, and check on elderly neighbors if the power goes out or there is a big storm.
