This can be a year of incredible prosperity for you, as Jupiter moves into your money zone. You’ll also be rethinking your social activities, with Saturn urging you to spend more time in spiritual pursuits and Pluto prompting long-term changes in friendships.
You’ll start 2023 in a nostalgic mood, especially around the Full Moon on January 6th. The fact that Mars, your ruling planet, is still in retrograde also slows you down for a while, but you’ll start to feel more alert when Mars turns direct on January 12th.
February brings an upsurge of joy and creativity, most potently around the Full Moon on February 5th, but also when Venus moves into Aries on the 20th - this is a wonderful time for dating and romance, as well as being helpful in bringing your creative visions to life.
Expect a shift in your spiritual thinking in early March when Saturn changes signs. Be ready to discard beliefs that weren’t working for you. If this entails a fresh start, you’ll be supported in that during the Aries New Moon on March 21st.
March brings another shift in thinking, too - this time centered around your social life. When Pluto changes signs on March 23rd it will enter this part of your chart for the first time in your life - and you may feel the need to revolutionize who you see, how, when, and why you see them.
This ties into a challenge to your identity, which is likely to peak on April 20th during the Solar Eclipse in Aries. Events will remind you how important it is to be your authentic self and will encourage you to get rid of anything - or anyone - that stops you from doing this.
The Lunar Eclipse on May 5th may bring a hidden debt to light - not necessarily financial, perhaps emotional. You will receive help from Jupiter in working out how to deal with this once Jupiter changes signs and moves into your money and values zone on May 16th.
June and July feature energies that build towards romantic promise, especially when Venus moves into the passion zone of your natal birth chart on June 5th - although this planet is retrograde until July 22nd, take care not to say things you cannot unsay. There is important news for your career in July, too, especially during the Full Moon at the top of your chart on July 3rd.
With Mars moving into your opposite sign on August 27th, you can expect an increase in passion in your closest relationship, but also, perhaps, an increase in arguments. The Aries Full Moon on September 29th could prove especially volatile in this regard - as could the Solar Eclipse in your opposite sign on October 14th.
Look to the Lunar Eclipse in the values zone of your natal birth chart on October 28th for revelations about what you have in common with others; this energy will help to soothe romantic relationships if they are still fraught - although it could prove less helpful to you financially.
The year draws to a close with Mercury turning retrograde at the top of your chart on December 13th, so the holiday period could be difficult at work. Nevertheless, a beautifully nostalgic Full Moon on December 26th mirrors the way you began the year - with fond memories all around you.
Love and Romance
The first feel-good factor for love this year arrives with the Full Moon on February 5th, which encourages you to seek joy wherever you can - including on some very interesting dates if you’re single and looking for love! Later that month on the 20th, Venus arrives in Aries, boosting your confidence to no end and spicing up your existing relationship.
Pluto’s arrival in the social zone of your chart for the first time in your life could see something transformational happening here, especially if you are single. From March 23rd onwards, all bets are off as to whether a friendship could develop into something more. However, watch out for tensions at home if it does, especially two days later when Mars moves into your family zone.
April 6th sees a beautiful Full Moon in your opposite sign, which is traditionally a very good omen for romance. Enjoy this blissful moment while you can because the Aries Solar Eclipse on April 20th is likely to rock your world to its core - and that could include romantically, too. The Lunar Eclipse on May 5th occurs in your passion zone, so be careful about using intimacy as a weapon around that period.
Whatever’s going on, Mars changes signs on May 20th and brings more passion and more energy to your love life. Venus also follows suit on June 5th, and there should hopefully follow four or five weeks when you can enjoy romance and feel truly cherished. When Venus turns retrograde on July 22nd, however, you will need to be very careful not to inadvertently hurt your partner.
Look to Mars’ arrival in your opposite sign on August 27th if you are seeking dramatic change in your love life. From making up to breaking up, this is energy that can certainly spice things up. Between then and the Aries Full Moon on September 29th, you’ll want to be sure that your motives in love are clear and transparent.
The major breakthrough in love this year comes with the Solar Eclipse in your opposite sign on October 14th. Two days earlier, Mars moves into the passion zone of your chart, so whatever drama the Eclipse brings, it will be felt right down deep in your heart. This shakeup of your relationship could feel catastrophic, but rest assured that the Universe is working in your interests here. If you are truly in love, you will emerge from this stronger.
Indeed, a beautiful Full Moon in your family zone on December 26th confirms that you will see out 2023 feeling loved, cherished, and adored - and with every prospect of creating a happy 2024.
Money and Career
The first quarter of 2023 is relatively stable for your finances and your working life. With Mars, your ruler, turning direct on January 12th, you’ll be able to get back up to speed and you’ll find that you can communicate better than you did during the holiday period.
The Full Moon on February 5th warns against risk-taking or gambling of any kind, including financially, but when Venus - a wealth planet, not just a love planet - moves into Aries on February 20th, you’ll feel firmly in control. The Aries New Moon on March 21st is a good time for job seeking or launching a new venture - especially since Venus will have moved into your money zone in good time on the 16th.
April’s Aries Solar Eclipse on the 20th can impact almost any area of your life, and it could possibly come with a financial shock attached. More likely, however, is that Mercury turning retrograde in your money zone the following day will lead to some necessary belt-tightening.
The Lunar Eclipse on May 5th brings shocks around inheritance, debt, or your own psychological self-worth, which in turn could negatively impact your abundance. Fortunately, bountiful Jupiter arrives in your money zone on May 16th, for the first time since 2012. This marks the beginning of 12 months of extraordinary possibility for you - it’s an amazing time for manifestation and wealth creation. A few days later, the Universe underlines this with a bountiful New Moon in your money zone on May 19th.
July 3rd could see you thrown into the spotlight at work, perhaps unwillingly, as the Full Moon demands that you live up to your potential. This may be an uncomfortable experience, but it will ultimately be to your benefit - you may not fully understand why until the Aries Full Moon on September 29th, however.
The Solar Eclipse on October 14th largely affects your love life, but it could also impact business partnerships of any kind, so look out for shocks and surprises around this time. Its twin Lunar Eclipse on October 28th does fall in the money zone of your natal birth chart, and will almost certainly carry a financial sting in its tail - be prepared for this, and don’t make major financial decisions around this time without expert advice.
The final two months of 2023 see you working hard, especially on self-development, driven by Mars in this sector of your chart. However, the holiday period could see some chaos at work, with Mercury turning retrograde in your career zone on December 13th. Draw clear boundaries about when you are available and when you are not - and don’t let a career crisis ruin your family experience.
