The year 2024 and its astrological effects on the sign of Aquarius.
The year 2024 brings continued good fortune to your personal life, living conditions, and domestic world, dear Aquarius, and it adds exceptional warmth to your love life and leisure time as the year progresses. First, Jupiter’s transit to your sector of the soul until late May can expand your family life or inner world. It boosts your feelings of security and joy in your home life and builds your confidence on an internal level. Greater comfort and enjoyment of downtime are likely–you may not feel exceptionally adventurous.
From May 25th forward, you might take this increased sense of personal self into the world – expressing yourself creatively, perhaps romantically, and generally enjoying yourself more. You have been doing a lot of “work” on yourself recently, and now is the time to share the “new you” (which is still, in fact, in the process of evolution). New hobbies are very possible. Channels for fun, love, and self-expression are opening! At times, you may need to watch spending or enjoy simpler activities to balance things out. In fact, you might pride yourself on better managing your material resources.
Financially speaking, you are moving just a little away from a spiritual, somewhat passive approach towards a more practical, pragmatic approach to money. Your personality has an edgier quality in 2024 as Pluto continues its slow transition into your sign. You are discovering your rough edges and learning how to manage them.
Your personal life often overshadows your professional activities this year. It can be an excellent time to set up a home business or home studies. Excitement on the home front is brewing. Certainly, you’re willing to entertain the unusual and think outside the box in your domestic world, and this attitude brings benefits. At the same time, relaxing and detoxing come more naturally, and it’s good for you! You’re cheerful, taking things in stride, and confident in yourself. People are paying attention and enjoying you. More often than not this year, you take the stresses and pressures of everyday life in stride.
New opportunities to truly enjoy yourself through recreation, pastimes, and other amusements will likely come your way. Romantic opportunities also expand. For some of you, a friendship turns into something more, or friends can be integral in exposing you to a new hobby, different and exciting forms of recreation, or romantic opportunities. You’re finding fantastic ways to express yourself and your personality through love, games, recreation, and creativity. Friendships blossom. 2024 brings more joie de vivre and the rekindling of passions and inspiration into your life.

Key Events in 2024 for Aquarius:
Outer Planet Transits:
Jupiter conjuncts Uranus in April and is parallel Uranus in early May. These influences encourage high spirits. We’re ready to discover, explore, and innovate. This transit is exciting, futuristic, and original. The need for progressive change becomes glaringly apparent under this influence. It’s a time when we’re itching to update, refresh, and renew ourselves, projects, circumstances, and connections.
We might take risks (perhaps, but not necessarily, foolish ones) for the sake of freedom during this transit. We could too easily avoid taking responsibility for things that truly matter, or we could feel exceptionally restless.
We’re open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes under the influence of this transit. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of our willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. We are feeling brave, positive, and optimistic. Enthusiasm runs high, the desire for freedom from restrictions is strong, and thirst for adventure is with us.
For Aquarius, this exciting energy occurs in your sector of home, family, and nurture. It’s a powerful time for upgrades, improvements, and sudden benefits in these areas. Excitement on the home front is brewing that leaves you feeling freer, lighter, and happier.
Jupiter forms a sextile with Neptune in May. Jupiter is expanding our desire for security, comfort, abundance, earthy or sensual experiences, money, and material things while in the sign of Taurus. As it harmonizes with spiritual Neptune in Pisces, we’re more likely to factor in our spiritual values and need for imagination, romance, and concern or compassion for others into our pursuit. We are inclined to see the good in people and situations.
For Aquarius, there can also be material benefits related to your home, family, or real estate. Improving home life can tie in with a better income or attitude toward your things, money, self-worth, and talents.
Jupiter forms a trine to Pluto in early June, and it’s easier to tap into our hidden talents or desires. As we do, we embrace new directions or pursuits. We’re discovering our ambitions and motivations, and it’s an enjoyable, productive experience. It’s a time when we strive to improve, grow, and bring something to the next level. A desire for more personal significance can lead us to give of ourselves or motivate us to more ambitiously pursue personal or professional goals. We can be opportunistic–it’s easier than usual to recognize opportunities because we’re looking to advance.
For Aquarius, this is a wonderful time to make deep, long-lasting changes that improve your life. You’re expressing yourself differently and more confidently, and you’re more determined. You’re finding fantastic ways to express yourself and your personality through love, games, recreation, hobbies, and creativity. A special love relationship or project can blossom.
Jupiter forms a square with Saturn in August, with Mars involved, and again in December, and circumstances are such that we must restructure our lives or plans in accordance with rules, laws, limits, and the demands of reality.
It’s best to breathe new life into old plans rather than to strike out with a new plan altogether during this period. We may need to cut back on something in order to grow in another area. It’s important not to overextend ourselves at this time and to avoid attempting easy fixes or shortcuts. The need to adjust our expectations becomes obvious.
For Aquarius, financial responsibilities or a stronger desire for security can sometimes clash or compete with your newfound craving to connect, communicate, and enjoy yourself more fully. You may be holding on a little too tightly to certain possessions and attitudes, for example, and as you begin to feel a strong desire to break free and try new things and ways of expressing yourself, there can be some tension. It’s a time to examine what’s preventing you from enjoying your life and taking a few creative risks.
Jupiter forms a sextile with Chiron in October & November, bringing healing magic to our lives. Our attempts to broaden our horizons through such experiences as furthering our education, expanded activities, and spirituality, contribute much to our personal growth.
This subtly uplifting time brings us the opportunity to free ourselves from restrictive and negative attitudes that have been undermining our progress. We are especially open to learning from others, and better able to help others to understand our point of view. We might open our minds to different perspectives and philosophies. We are absorbing and possibly sharing what we’ve learned from past experiences and mistakes.
For Aquarius, relationships can be smoother as you put more effort into communication or better structure your personal interests to accommodate other pursuits and connections. It can be a good time to humble yourself to the need for improved connections and communication, which helps you in many different life departments.
Mars is retrograde from December 6th, 2024, to February 223rd, 2025, in the signs of Leo and Cancer (pre-retrograde shadow begins October 4th). We can feel stuck on past relationships or situations, finding it difficult to move ahead.
Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations figure strongly now, particularly for you in your relationships, and more specifically, partnerships for the 2024 portion of this retrograde cycle. There can be weighty issues and delays to manage related to a close connection, legal contract, or negotiation.
You have the chance to reassess how you’ve been dealing with others, and you may be finding new and improved ways of connecting. Taking things slowly is most beneficial. Lackluster areas of your life seem to be in the spotlight. Fortunately, you can use this time to get in touch with your current needs and desires.
Note that Mars is the ruler of your communications and transportation sector in your solar chart, and all Mars retrograde periods, including this one, seem to impact these areas.

The horoscope on this page, Aquarius Yearly, shows the trends and predictions for the year in detail. Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Aquarius, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
There are some interesting developments for you this year, dear Aquarius. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that by understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease that you can make the most of these trends as you seek the opportunities and manage the challenges.
Aquarians are progressive yet loyal. They are not afraid to break from tradition if it doesn’t serve a good purpose. Pluto is entering a very long-term transit of your sign, although it’s a very slow transition. In 2024, it stays in your sign consistently from November onward, but spends a good chunk of the year in Aquarius.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Aquarius:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in a direct, challenging relationship with your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in a direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
As is evident in the above chart, harmonious transits tend to outweigh challenging and neutral energy from the outer planets. These bodies are working, for the most part, in ways that you understand intuitively.
Even so, a challenging outer-planet influence is from your own (modern) ruler, Uranus. This transit can be somewhat destabilizing. It’s a period for reorienting yourself and answering a call to make some changes, even if they are not immediately welcome. As well, Pluto is depicted as harmonious, but it has its own way of putting pressure on you.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Uranus is the only outer planet that’s actively challenging you all year in 2024. Interestingly, Uranus is one of your ruling planets. This does point to a need to make changes to your home or domestic world and living conditions or arrangements, which can be occasionally disruptive, but ultimately liberating.
Surprises on the home front can sometimes challenge you, but you’re on the road to major improvements. In fact, Jupiter brings more enjoyment and blessings to your home life this year.
Pluto will remain in the background of your solar chart for a while longer, suggesting there is further work to do with getting closure in your life. However, it’s emerging this year for many months, and you’re getting a preview of Pluto’s transit to your sign before it settles in in November. Transformation and reinvention are the themes! It’s a strong time of self-discovery.
Figuring strongly is special attention to exciting interests and developments with family, home life, creativity, recreation, love, and romance. Go big in these areas, but know your limits!
