2023 looks to be an exceptionally busy year for you, especially once your ruler, Saturn, changes signs. However, it’s also a year in which you can make great progress on your life path, courtesy of Pluto, and find joy in your personal life, courtesy of Jupiter.
It will probably be a slow start to the year - you may not feel fully back into work mode until Mars turns direct on January 12th. All the more time to enjoy some romance though, especially during the Full Moon on January 6th. Venus transits your money zone from January 2nd, aligning you with abundance, and the New Moon here on January 21st is promising for your income.
On March 7th, your ruling planet Saturn changes signs. This may lead to increased stress levels during the year, as you will feel responsible for everyone and everything. However, with Pluto moving into your money zone on March 23rd, you are likely to discover several hidden talents that will help you manage the pressure. Pluto has not visited this part of your chart in your lifetime, and it could be quite an eye-opener for the next 19 years!
On March 25th, Mars moves into your opposite sign, boosting your passion levels but also increasing your temper. With this in mind, the potent Solar Eclipse at the bottom of your chart on April 20th may create drama and upheaval within the family. Try to stay calm and use the energies of the corresponding Lunar Eclipse on May 5th to rethink your long-term goals. With Venus moving into your opposite sign on May 7th, the waters will soon calm.
Indeed, on May 16th, Jupiter moves into the joy zone of your natal birth chart. This is a truly magical influence for you, bringing you the chance to be fully creative and joyful over the coming twelve months, and freeing up much more time for you to do whatever you love. The New Moon in this zone of your chart just three days later is symbolic of this fresh start.
July seems likely to be a happy month for your personal life in particular - the Capricorn Full Moon on July 3rd is very empowering, and the New Moon in your love zone on the 17th speaks to plenty of romantic promise. However, watch out for Venus turning retrograde in your passion zone on July 22nd - you will need to be very honest with your partner at this time.
It’s October that sees the biggest potential developments in your career this year, around the time of the Solar Eclipse on the 14th, which may see you thrust unexpectedly into the limelight during a mini work crisis of some kind. This is an opportunity in disguise, and if you seize it, you’ll be rewarded during the Lunar Eclipse on October 28th.
2023 draws to a close on an optimistic note, although you’ll want to be careful with communication when Mercury turns retrograde on December 13th. The Full Moon in your love zone on December 26th, however, is a magical way to close the year.
Love and Romance
It’s a very pleasant start to 2023 for love, especially in an established relationship. The Full Moon on January 6th shines from your opposite sign, creating warmth, intimacy, and soul-to-soul connection. There should be pleasant family-related news too, especially on March 21st during the New Moon.
However, Saturn’s change of sign in early March could add pressure to your relationships simply because it creates many more responsibilities for you. You’ll need to work hard to give your love life the attention it deserves, although it will help when Mars moves into your opposite sign on March 25th.
Family dynamics could be shaken by the Solar Eclipse on April 20th, so it’s important to stay calm at that point. The following day, Mercury turns retrograde in one of the most passionate zones of your chart - saying little is a good idea. By May 7th, when Venus moves into your opposite sign, the dust will have settled.
From then on, everything looks very rosy in your romantic life. Jupiter, that most joyful of planets, moves into your pleasure zone on May 16th, paving the way for twelve months of happy memories, new connections, passion, fun, and laughter - with the Full Moon on May 19th opening this up to a great start.
You’ll also enjoy some memorable moments once Venus moves into the passion zone of your chart on June 5th, and again during the Capricorn Full Moon on July 3rd. Be aware, however, that when Venus turns retrograde on July 22nd, jealousy or secrecy could become an issue.
Look to the Full Moon in your family zone on September 29th for a strong emotional connection with loved ones and perhaps a reunion too, or the end to a family feud. When the Lunar Eclipse on October 28th brings something hidden to light, this secret may actually turn out to be helpful to your love life - perhaps putting an end to a rumor or speculation once and for all.
On November 8th, Venus is right at the top of your chart. As well as being helpful for your working life, this influence can also suggest great pride in your love life; you will very much enjoy being the center of attention at this point, so pack on the glamor and the showbiz vibe.
It looks to be a pleasant and peaceful holiday season to round out 2023, and the glorious Full Moon in your opposite sign on December 26th is a wonderfully romantic way to end the year.
Money and Career
Venus, in its capacity as a wealth planet, moves out of Capricorn and into your money zone on January 2nd, making this first month of the year an excellent time for abundance. There’s a New Moon in this zone of your chart too on January 21st, so don’t be afraid to try some new money-making ideas.
Saturn leaves your money zone, finally, on March 7th. This is good news for your bank balance and frees you up to create more wealth - however, Saturn’s new position in your chart does increase your stress levels; be careful not to overwork yourself this year.
Meanwhile, Pluto ends its tour of Capricorn, where it has been since 2008, to move into the money zone of your natal birth chart. Over the next 19 or so years, this revolutionary planet will indeed revolutionize your approach to and understanding of abundance. In particular, this is a very good time to ensure that your career path aligns with your higher, more profound, or spiritual goals.
On April 20th, a Solar Eclipse rocks the family zone of your natal birth chart, possibly due to your increased Saturn-driven work ethic and the conflict this brings with your family responsibilities. Take some time between then and August to try to rethink this balance.
On August 1st, the Full Moon shines from your money zone, creating a turning point in your wealth journey this year - hopefully a good one. Mercury turns retrograde in your learning zone on August 23rd, however, so be careful not to bluff your way through job interviews or training as you stand a high risk of being found out. Nonetheless, when Mars moves to the very top of your chart on August 27th, your ambitions will soar.
It’s then a very productive period for work until the Solar Eclipse strikes at the top of your chart on October 14th. What feels like a crisis probably isn’t, so if you can stay calm and take control, you will emerge from this looking good. In particular, the Lunar Eclipse on October 28th rewards you for taking a calculated risk.
Venus heads into your ambitions zone on November 8th, adding to your charisma and making it easier for you to get support or investment from others. This leads to a productive and pleasing end to 2023 for your career. However, be careful with your online privacy when Mercury turns retrograde in Capricorn on December 13th - otherwise, careless talk could catch you out.
