The New Year will definitely bring with it some significant shifts in the cosmic energy, which will then create substantial changes in the entire energy grid of the planet.
As we go through 2023, three significant planets will be moving through signs as they continue to establish new dynamics that have never been experienced before.
One of the major shifts that this year will herald will be the movement of Pluto from the zodiac of Capricorn to Aquarius. Pluto, as we are well aware, is the planet that symbolizes death and rebirth and spends quite some time in every zodiac sign. The movement, therefore, will be representing quite a huge shift that will bring with itself several lessons for us to learn.
Some of the Dates That We Would Do Well To Remember
Mars Direct on the 12th of January
Ever since the end of October this year, Mars has been in a state of retrograde. But as we begin the new year, it will be stationing itself direct- which brings an end to that cycle.
With Mars moving away from the retrograde cycle, our motivation will also increase considerably, and our energy levels will receive a much-needed boost. We might also find ourselves posting ideas regarding possible avenues of spending time, resources, and energy.
Saturn Entering Pisces on the 7th of March
Saturn will be moving into Pisces on the 7th of March, 2023, for the first time in over 29 years. This planet has a very grounded presence, and in the zodiac of Pisces, we could find it pretty hard to integrate the energy in the beginning.
However, when we are able to channel this energy in a highly productive way- it will bring with us a healthy dose of reality to our creative and spiritual endeavors. This energy will also help us take in ideas and put them into a stark reality.
Pluto In Aquarius on the 23rd of March
Pluto will be dipping its toes into Aquarius on the 23rd of March, 2023, for the first time in our lives. The planet will be progressively dancing on the cusp between Aquarius and Capricorn until November 2024, when it will be making Aquarius its new residence.
The planet is also known as the planet of both death and rebirth, and when it moves through the zodiac, it works overtime to burn everything that needs to be dismantled. And like a phoenix, it facilitates a rebirth from the ashes itself.
On each rebirth, the hope would be to move into a far higher level of consciousness and awareness. Pluto also relates to a higher level of power, so when one makes a big move, our attention will shift toward governments, financial markets, and big businesses.
Aries Solar Eclipse on the 20/21 April
This has the potential to be one of the most vibrant events of the year, and this will also be the first time that we will face an eclipse in Aries since 2015. The Eclipse brings with itself some incredible power of manifestation, so you should be free to exercise your co-creative talents and then end up setting some intentions!
The Eclipse will also bring up a lot of opportunities for you, so you need to keep a close eye on the horizon. And finally, emotions will be on the surface- so try to channel them into productive energy so that you can reach your goals.
Jupiter in Taurus on the 16th of May
While the year will start with Jupiter in Aries, from the 16th of May onwards, it will be dipping straight into Taurus. Jupiter in the zodiac of Aries is quite ambitious, but Jupiter in Taurus will help us ease things on the way and have us reflect on our ideas so that we can build strong foundations under them.
This planet is also about pleasure, so make sure you consume delicacies. We will be faced with a balanced relationship- so there is no reason why we can’t manage our finances properly.
Lunar Nodes Would Be Shifting To Libra and Aries on the 17th of July
The Lunar Nodes would be moving from Scorpio and Taurus into Libra and Aries, creating a whole new Eclipse cycle. The Lunar Nodes, for those wondering, are mathematical points in astrology that not only indicate the signs of Eclipses but are also the collective karmic destiny of our planet.
The North Node, which would be falling in the zodiac of Aries this year, will represent what we are supposed to focus on as a society. On the other hand, the South Node will represent what we need to create. Although with the North Node in Aries, it would seem that we are being encouraged to move out and express ourselves freely.
Venus Retrograde in Leo on the 22nd of July
The planet which rules over love, beauty, relationships, and money, Venus, will be in a state of retrograde from the 22nd of July to the 3rd or 4th of September. The retrogrades in Venus take place every 18 months, where the planet goes through a rapid transformation in how its energy is expressed.
At the same time, we go through our own transitions as we keep reflecting and reassessing our relationships with ourselves and with money. With Venus being in a state of retrograde in Leo, there is a possibility that we would be experiencing massive shifts when it comes to passions and our self-care routines.
Since Leo is also a zodiac with very heart-centered energy, we could also experience heart openings and forge a connection with our hearts at the same time.
The Eclipses In The New Year
2023 will have four separate eclipses in store for us. Two of them would be powerful Solar Eclipses, while the other two would be weaker Lunar Eclipses. With Solar Eclipses being the more dominant force this year, it does appear that we are being streamlined to start focusing on the beginnings.
The last Eclipse of 2023 will also be one of the last eclipses in the cycle between Taurus and Scorpio that we have been functioning through- which would make it quite a powerful point for closure and completion.
Mercury’s Backspin Through The Earth Signs
What seems to be quite an interesting point would be the positioning of Mercury retrograde in 2023. Our year will begin with a Mercury retrograde and end in one as well.
Mercury, as we are well aware, is the planet that thrives on communication and thoughts, so when in a position of retrograde, the themes would be highlighted for us.
The planet will retrograde, especially in the earth signs, so we might find a need to stay extra grounded- as we focus on the facts themselves. Since a retrograde can easily change the way we think, it would be even more prudent for us to find clarity within the changes.
We might also need to believe in our own convictions and not turncoat when faced with alternative ideas and thoughts. And the rest of the year should go pretty seamlessly after that.
