The Year Ahead: Daemons for Your Astrological Sign – 2024 Edition

Today, I thought I’d do a reading for the year ahead for each astrological sign by pulling a Daemonic sigil – for the Goetic Spirits. Remember to read your sun sign along with your moon sign. I’m a Cancer sun with a Capricorn moon – the earthy part of water according to the elemental makeup of my natal chart. Oftentimes, the Capricorn reading is more accurate for me. Only you can decide which one fits you better based on what’s going on in your life.

Remember that you can do this for yourself at any time. There are plenty of decks on the market for the Goetic spirits, and even a Dukante sigil deck. Any of them will pair well with my book Sigillum Diaboli, which gives meanings for the sigils.

♑ Capricorn (Goat): December 22–January 19 – Ronove – 2024 will be a great year to go back to school, get certifications, or learn new skills. Consider writing out what you’d like to learn this year and create a plan of actionable steps you can take to increase your skills and knowledge. This seal may indicate you will be doing research or getting serious about a writing project. If none of this applies, then chances are you’re going to learn something new about a situation you’re in that you were unaware of before and it will change your opinion and perspective of the matter.

♒ Aquarius (Water Bearer): January 20–February 18 – Balam – This coming year will be busy for you, Aquarius! Numerous social events and opportunities for networking will arise in 2024. You may even find yourself making great strides in your career or social group because right now – you’re looked upon favorably by peers and bosses. Use this to your advantage. This seal is also a warning to keep your plans secret until you’re ready to launch them or until you see measurable results. That way there’s no chance of someone trying to beat you to the plate or stand in your way or talk you out of it.

♓ Pisces (Fish): February 19–March 20: Ipos – You are going to need a lot of courage in 2024, Pisces! You’re going to have to make a big decision in 2024 and problems could arise from a surprising source. People you thought would back you up may not or may be completely against your decision. But here’s the thing — the decision is ultimately yours. You’re the one who has to live with it. If you’re comfortable with that – it doesn’t matter what others think or how hard they try to fight that choice you’re making. It’s your life and you have to do what is best for you.

♈ Aries (Ram): March 21–April 19 – Andrealphus – This is a seal of new beginnings. Especially with regard to your career options. 2024 finds you making a choice about changing jobs, accepting a promotion, or starting your own business. Make sure you’ve done your research and don’t rush into anything. It’s okay to take some time to think about your choice, but don’t wait too long or the opportunity may pass.

♉ Taurus (Bull): April 20–May 20: Alloces – This is the year to be cautious, dear Taurus. Don’t jump into anything without reading all the fine print and thinking it through. It might be best to spend 2024 working methodically toward your goals – slowly – until you see measurable results. Try not to focus on the end result too much, because the end result could be different than you envision, and moving slowly will give you a better idea of what the final outcome will actually look like. This way, not only will you discover if this goal is what you actually want, but also if you have the stamina or desire to continue toward it. You may end up changing your mind.

♊ Gemini (Twins): May 21–June 21- Bifrons – This looks to be a good year for Gemini when it comes to love and friendship. If you’re attached, you may find a deeper connection with the person you’re with. If you don’t have a partner, this might be the year you find that special someone. If you have recently lost someone (whether in life, love, or friendship) this is the year that brings you the emotional healing you need to move forward. You may also find yourself feeling a bit of nostalgia for the past, and desire to look at family photos with your loved ones or reach out to connect with an old classmate.

♋ Cancer (Crab): June 22–July 22 – Sabnock – This is the year to lay low and STFU, Cancer. Keep your plans and projects to yourself or you risk others trying to hamper them – or steal your ideas and call them their own. To overcome obstacles, take a step back and listen – process what you’re hearing, and then choose a carefully planned response. If you’re aggressive and forceful with your reaction (as we Cancerians often can be when something triggers an emotional response in us) you’ll only create more problems and obstacles.

♌ Leo (Lion): July 23–August 22 – Leraje – Leo, this is your year to let the past go and move forward. Sometimes we hang onto conflicts due to our own egos, and this tends to be the case with you. When you’re right, you’re right and you want others to accept that you’re right. Let it go and practice forgiveness for yourself and others. Now — as a caveat to this, I’m not saying you should act like the conflict never happened. It did. But you can choose to accept that the other parties in the conflict have their beliefs and you have yours – and that you no longer need these people in your life or maybe the subject just needs to be dropped and never revisited. Not all hills are worth dying on. Also, you can forgive without condoning shitty behavior or remaining close or friendly with someone.

♍ Virgo (Virgin): August 23–September 22- Cimejes – Virgo – 2024 is your year to shine and share your knowledge and experience with others. You may be sought after as a mentor. Just be careful your expertise isn’t used to bash or destroy others. There’s a fine line between confidence in what what one knows – and arrogance. Usually, the pulling of this seal also indicates that this is the year to launch new projects and plans, and that there will be few (if any) obstacles holding you back this year.

♎ Libra (Balance): September 23–October 23 – Stolas – 2024 will be a great time to brush up on your communication skills as there will be plenty of opportunity to do so. But — preciseness is key. You will find yourself needing to be more careful in how you communicate with others in order to get your point across, or to project the proper information you want the other person to hear. It may be best to make sure you rehearse what you say beforehand so there are no misunderstandings. If you can master this skill of precise communication – you can be successful in any situation the year throws at you.

♏ Scorpio (Scorpion): October 24–November 21 –  Glasya-Labolas – It looks like 2024 is going to be whirlwind of action for you, Scorpio. You may be busier this year than the past few. But be careful about sharing private plans and dreams with others, otherwise prying eyes could hinder your success, whether it be by those wanting to sabotage you, those who disagree and make you second guess yourself, or those who unintentionally stand in the way of your success.

♐ Sagittarius (Archer): November 22–December 21 – Seere – 2024 may be roughest on you, Sagittarius. We all have rough years, but it seems like you may be stuck in a stalemate. Feeling like you can’t get ahead or that things are staying the same no matter how hard you try to make changes. Never fear. There is hope. Find comfort in the fact that the wheel turns, and everything that goes down WILL come back up again. Be careful of acting rashly to intense emotions because it will only make matters work. Instead, turn 2024 into a year of reflection, planning, and self-care. Things will start moving forward again, it’s just going to take some time.
