Happy New Year
As the year begins, there’s a lot happening in Capricorn and your relationship sector. On the 1st, there’s a powerful Venus-Pluto conjunction in your opposite star sign, a symbol of obsession and passion, also potentially an ending.
Full Moon/Mercury Direct
Plus, on the 6th, it’s your Full Moon in Cancer cutting across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. One way or another, you may be on the verge of making a big decision about a relationship, a partnership or a contract.
This is powerful astrology to start the year and it puts you in the ascendancy. It’s an ideal time to review your relationships, consider your needs and decide what you want moving forward. If you need any help or inspiration, turn to your friends for advice and ideas.
This is because the planet Uranus is lively from the 5th to the 8th in Taurus and your friendship and group sector. Be around the right group of people early on in 2023 and this could start something new in your life.
Yes, talk planet Mercury remains retrograde in Capricorn and your relationship sector until the 18th. Therefore, ideally wait until then to make any big decision. Mercury switched direction on December 29, 2022 so events on or around this date may prove significant.
As Mercury switches direction, new information may come to light. Either that or you’re ready to speak up. There’s a Sun-Pluto conjunction on the same date, the 18th, adding intensity and finality to any big decisions.
There’s another planet turning direct this month and that planet is Mars. Mars has been retrograde since October 30, 2022 in Gemini and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. This isn’t an easy placing for you as you can turn anger inwards. Or, your mind is in overdrive.
If you’ve experienced any anxiety or depression over the last ten weeks, Mars retrograde in Gemini may have been the astrological culprit. Gemini’s the sector of your horoscope which rules secret enemies too, so you may find out who’s been talking behind your back or who’s not in agreement with you.
Mars turning direct on the 12th could bring new information to light. It’s a time for inner work, insight and understanding. Mars remains in Gemini until March 25th.
Mars in Gemini represents a time of preparation for you, when you’re doing your research and getting ready for a new chapter or phase beginning at the Equinox in two months time. It’s ideal for writing and creative work, counselling and coaching.
This is a month when you’re wise to get practical and pay attention to the logistics of life. This may mean dealing with money matters, perhaps linked to a legal issue.
This is because Aquarius is the star sign of the moment when Venus moves here from the 3rd to the 27th and Aquarius rules joint finances in your horoscope. The Sun enters Aquarius on the 20th
There are some lucky dates when it’s a good time to free yourself from any financial ties as you have the planet of opportunity Jupiter in Aries and your career and vocation sector.
On the 4th & 25th, Jupiter teams up with Venus and the Sun respectfully. Both dates are helpful for money, contracts and negotiations.
Plus, on the 21st, there’s a New Moon taking place in Aquarius, a symbol of new beginnings. This would be the ideal time to set up a savings plan, renegotiate a mortgage or ask for a pay rise.
It might mean stopping a payment or minimising expenses too. Do what you know is right for you to feel both financially and emotionally secure.
This could out to be a big month for you when you’re determined to start 2023 in a way that means business. Where there’s flow in your horoscope is in your career and money sectors. Wherever you’re feeling held back, use the turning points and the green lights to get ahead.

In my native language Finnish we have a saying “being as irritated as a bear shot in the ass”. That’s exactly how I’ve felt the past two months, and I didn’t know the Mars R in Gemini could contribute to that.
Also I had a job interview that came right out of the blue on the 29th of December. I’ve been on a sabbatical for a few months now, and this job would be my dream job, so let’s see how it turns out. Fingers crossed ?
I have your 2023 yearly book, so I will consult that during the year.
Thank you Sally!
