Miracles — Welcome to the Saussy Astrology Guide for 2024!

This is a post you will want to book mark and be able to refer back to as it has many of the essential astro dates you need to know.

Let’s begin to dive into the astrology of 2024!

We will begin with the various phases of the moon, check out the solar ingresses for 2024, and then look at things like those pesky Mercury Retrograde periods, eclipses, and the highlights for both the inner and outer planets.

Unlike the versions from year’s past of this astro guide, you will note that there are no questions or prompts to consider for each of the astrological events.

You can find all the prompts, questions, and detailed explanations for the events described below in the Planning by Starlight Planner!

If you want a taste of the planner, check out the pics sprinkled throughout this post! They are all created by Jacquelyn Tierney and they come from the 2024 version of Planning by Starlight!

Now, for those of you who are relatively new to Astrology, don’t worry.

I keep this guide simple and straightforward so you can get a lot out of it.

If you really love astrology, or enjoy learning more and more about how it works, then be sure to check out my book, Star Child: Joyful Parenting Through Astrology – which has a ton of great astro info and is relevant whether you have kids or not!

And if you are ready to really put the stars to work for you, then do join The Fixed Stars Society…where I fix the stars to shine in your favor!

Lunar and Solar Eclipses in 2024

There are four eclipses in 2024, they occur in the signs of Libra, Aries, and Pisces. You can learn more about eclipses and how to work with them here

In short, I have found that eclipses are very useful for breaking long-held patterns of thought, behavior, attitude, and action that no longer serve. 

Many astrologers talk about eclipses in negative terms but don’t let that keep you from noting eclipse times and trying your hand at working with them in an intentional manner.

If you want to truly optimize your eclipse experience then join the Fixed Stars Society here we make Eclipse Magic every single time an eclipse rolls around.

Mercury Retrogrades for 2024

Every planet has retrograde periods but most people are only familiar with Mercury Retrograde – mostly because many astrologers and non-astrologers alike make this period out to be terrible, full of bad luck, and extremely frustrating. It can be, but I prefer to practice with Mercury retrograde instead of in resistance to it.

You can learn more about Mercury retrograde in my Mercury RX archives here and check out this article to start to get a sense of how you might deepen your retrograde experienceIf you are what I call Mercury-sensitive you will want to make a note of the things to do BEFORE Mercury goes retrograde and join the Fixed Stars Society where we always engage with the Mercury RX Survival Kit.

In 2024 all of the Mercury Retrogrades all occur mostly in Fire signs with the exceptions being the first retrograde period of the year which begins in December of 2023 and in the sign of Capricorn and the third retrograde period of 2024 which begins on August 4th in the sign of Virgo before Mercury retrogrades into Leo.

When Mercury retrogrades in Fire signs, we often find that impatience, aggression, and anger get the best of us. The vibe is hot and bothered and these retrograde periods make conflict much more likely on both personal and global levels. Watching out for accidents, arguments, and scattered energy is a smart move during these periods. These are excellent periods to look at things like exercise, fitness, creative work, and nutrition.

For a detailed write up on what the Mercury Retrogrades have in store for us make sure you snag the Planning By Starlight Planner!

Here are the dates for the 2024 Mercury Retrogrades:

December 13th 2023 – January 1st 2024: Retrograde starts at 1:09 AM in Capricorn at 8 degrees. Mercury stations direct on January 1st at 9:08 PM in Sagittarius at 22 degrees.

April 1st 2023 – April 25th 2024: Retrograde starts at 5:14 PM in Aries at 27 degrees. Mercury stations direct on April 25th at 7:54 AM in Aries at 16 degrees.

August 4 2024 – August 28th 2024: Retrograde starts at 11:56 PM in Virgo at 4 degrees. Mercury stations direct on August 28th at 4:14 PM in Leo at 21 degrees.

Inner Planet Awesome: Mercury, Venus, and Mars

These three inner planets move through the sky and around the zodiac relatively quickly which means that they make many transits throughout the year.  Besides the Mercury Retrogrades listed above, there is a Mars retrograde in 2024 at the end of the year that carries into 2025. Happily there is no Venus Retrograde to contend with this year!

Mars Retrograde: December 6th 2024 – February 23rd 2025

Mars Retrograde begins at 5:33 PM in Leo at 6 degrees and stations direct on February 23rd 2025 at 8:00 PM in Cancer at 17 degrees.
