December 28, 2023

Welcome to 2024, Cancer. Pluto, the badass planet of death and rebirth, embarks on a journey all year that is major for love and relationships. Let’s talk about love first, shall we? The makeover planet is in Aquarius and your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation starting on Saturday, January 20, encouraging you to expand what’s on the sensuality menu, whether you’re taking a break from dating, enjoying the fluidity of your orientation, or experimenting with kink and fantasy. Pluto dips into Capricorn and your 7th House of Partnership on Sunday, September 1, where it will stay until Tuesday, November 19, bringing big but welcome changes to your most important relationships.

As the moon is your ruling planetary body, one stressful aspect of 2024 is that the two lunar eclipses affect you more than other signs. The first arrives on Monday, March 25, and the second on Tuesday, September 17. Eclipses can leave you feeling exhausted, so layer on self-care, especially sleep, on and around these dates. If you hang out with anyone, have it be a trusted friend. While overall, 2024 is a chill year for your friendships, your love life, as well, or rather, and especially your professional life are going to be turned upside down in the best way possible.

Love & Relationships

Your 2024 love and romance horoscope emphasizes how healthy your relationships become when you combine romance with logic. As lover Venus enters Capricorn and your 7th House of Partnership on Tuesday, January 23, it brings a much-needed dose of fact-based thinking to your romantic life. You’re the poet of the zodiac and know how to express feelings (and experience them deeply). A little logic helps you act effectively on these emotions.

On Monday, June 17, Venus enters your sign, heralding one of the most romantically charged periods of the year. This transit amplifies your capacity for nurturing and ability to let love in, making it an ideal time to deepen existing relationships or attract new love. Your innate romanticism is at its peak. Simultaneously, on Monday, June 17, Mercury, the communicator, also your sign. This dual event enhances your ability to express your feelings and desires in love. Use this time to have meaningful conversations with your partner or articulate your feelings to someone you’re crushing on. It’s also an opportune moment to clarify any misunderstandings.

Pluto, the badass planet of death and rebirth, embarks on a journey all year that is major for love and relationships. Starting on Saturday, January 20, Pluto in Aquarius shakes up your 8th House of Sex, Death, and Transformation. Expect changes in your intimate life, ranging from exploring new fantasies to your orientation. This period is about discovering latent aspects of your sexuality. Then, on Sunday, September 1, Pluto briefly re-enters Capricorn, revitalizing your 7th House of Partnership. This phase promises a romantic Halloween. Couple’s costumes, anyone? Then, on Tuesday, November 19, Pluto returns to Aquarius, adding physical pleasure to emotional connections, a.k .a. the combination for the most fun and fulfilling dating experience ever.

Finally, Wednesday, September 4, marks another significant shift in matters of love as turned on Mars enters your sign, Cancer. Mars, governing desire, ignites your passion and assertiveness in love. Embrace this energy to express your needs and desires confidently. This is a time for bold romantic gestures and embracing the full spectrum of your emotional and sexual being.


What did you do on New Year’s Eve, Cancer? While overall, 2024 is a chill year for your friendships, there may be unexpected shakeups or drama brewing during the first month of the year. That’s because Uranus, the wild child of the zodiac, ruler of surprises, is retrograde when 2024 begins through January 27th, 2024, in the sign of Taurus in your 11th House of Friendship. Yes, this could indicate that you get frustrated with a friend (or they get annoyed at you) or that you even have a falling out with someone dear to your heart. However, it can also indicate welcome change. Most likely, an acquaintance surprises you with a thoughtful act of kindness that brings you closer. While not all change is bad, it can be stressful, so use more self-care than usual during the first month of the year.

As noted, 2024 looks to be relatively calm and reliable for your friendships, which is as it should be. You require a solid foundation. And regardless of your dating status, you must continue to put time and effort into them. There is one date that comes with a forecast for drama, and that’s the full moon and lunar eclipse in Libra in your 4th House of Home and Family on Monday, March 25. Remember, lunar eclipses can leave everyone feeling on edge. You’re more prone to the effects as the moon is your ruling planetary body. With this one falling in your 4th House, you’ll want to take it easy to avoid drama. You do care about family as much as your reputation states. However, that doesn’t have to mean blood relatives. You care about your friends just as deeply. So if you’re feeling paranoid around this eclipse, wait a day or two, use your rational mind, and think before lashing out at anyone.


2024 starts on a high note (actually, it’s altogether fabulous news on the work front) with a full moon in Leo falling in your 2nd House of Possessions on Thursday, January 25. Full moons symbolize culmination, meaning that this lunar phase could bring welcome financial news. Although the stars work within our economic constraints, it’s okay to want to believe. If the stars have their way, this day brings a positive turn in your finances. It may be an expected one but don’t forget that most change seems fast but is really the result of years of work.

Brazen Mars moves into Aries and your 10th House of Social Status on Tuesday, April 30, indicating that you’ll get more followers, praise at work, or some recognition. Remember that it’s a testament to your hard work and dedication.

As the summer begins and your season creeps closer, even more good news comes your way regarding career and creative projects when Venus, who is so generous that she rules money, love, and beauty, enters your sign on Monday, June 17. This transit heralds an abundant period ripe with potential for advancing your dreams, whether that’s the poems you write at night and hope to publish or your day job, and ideally enhancing your income. On this same date, Mercury also enters your sign (note Monday, June 17 in your calendar). This alignment of Venus and Mercury makes your words drip with honey. Witch-tip: Cast a spell by dabbing actual honey on your lips and make your words even sweeter. Now is a fabulous time to negotiate for a raise, kickstart a side hustle, or advocate for a healthier work-life balance.

Venus continues to move through the sky, entering proud Leo and your 2nd House of Possessions on Thursday, July 11, indicating that the whole summer is an excellent time to ask for what you want from the material world. And, just as the leaves begin to change, fighter Mars enters your sign, Cancer, on Wednesday, September 4, boosting your assertiveness and helping others listen. And after such a busy summer, try to relax into fall and winter, enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Health & Wellness

Remember, Cancer, while having the moon as your ruling planetary body means that you’re creative as hell and highly emotionally intelligent, there are a few downsides. One is that even though eclipses are stressful for everyone, the lunar variety affects you more than others. The first of the year comes on Monday, March 25. Put on some loungewear, eat some delicious food, and avoid the drama by saying in. Another comes later in the year on Tuesday, September 1, and we prescribe the same prescription of as much sleep and self-care as you can manage.

When lovely Venus sashays into your sign, Cancer, on Monday, June 17, prepare to feel extra pretty. Because your season starts just a few days after, on Thursday, June 20, you deserve to treat yourself to a birthday present such as delightful nails, delicious hair color, or daring eye makeup. If you’re saving funds, you can totally ask someone else to buy these delightfully vain gifts for you.

But that’s not the only time during 2024 when Venus graces you with feelings of confidence and a desire to switch up your beauty routine. When the planet enters brave Sagittarius and your 6th House of Health on Thursday, October 17, go ahead and get that cute ear piercing or even a plastic surgery consultation you’re curious about. In astrology, your 6th House of Health is about wellness, not illness, so it’s all about doing what makes you feel good, which is totally allowed to include looking good. And, on the topic of makeovers, the new moon, the phase associated with beginnings, in transformative Scorpio and your 5th House of Pleasure on Friday, November 1, begs you to finally get that makeover, minor or major.
