Happy New Year
It would be tempting to rush into 2023 and get things moving fast. Admittedly, there are certain areas where you can make waves but it’s worth being patient with two key planets retrograde until mid-January.
Before then, there’s a lot going on for you in the first week of the year. It starts on the 1st when your ruling planet Venus runs into Pluto, God of the underworld. This combination takes place in Capricorn and your travel and study sector. On the plus side, this can lend you resilience and an obsessive desire to learn or expand your horizons.
Yet, sometimes this combination means that things don’t work out the way you want them to. A trip or course may have to be postponed or even cancelled – the 18th could also prove challenging. Perhaps, you’re the one changing your mind about long-term plans.
Full Moon/Mercury Direct
Yet, on the 6th, there’s a glorious Full Moon that falls across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac lighting up your travel and study sectors. Plus, this Full Moon pulls in spontaneous Uranus in your star sign Taurus.
An alternative plan could work out even better during the first weekend of the year. Follow where life leads you and say yes to any diversions or changes of direction.
Another potential turning point this month is the 18th when talk planet Mercury turns direct in Capricorn. This date is likely to reveal new information that can help you make a clear decision about your next steps.
Mercury turned retrograde on December 29, 2022. This can be a positive time to go on retreat or take yourself off somewhere different. Yet, if your plans are chopping and changing and you’re more willing to revise holiday or study plans, you’re in tune with this month’s astrology.
There may be another reason why circumstances are changing or your situation is in flux. This is because action planet Mars is packing a punch in Gemini and your personal money sector. Therefore, finances are foreground.
Admittedly, Mars has been retrograde or on go slow since October 30, 2022 and this can bring frustration or a feeling of powerlessness. It’s not been the best time to make a major financial decision or a big investment.
Yet, Mars turns direct on the 12th, a significant turning point. This is your cue to be assertive around money and act fast. Get things moving, be strong, be bold, be forceful if necessary.
Mars remains strong in Gemini until March 25th. If things go well, you may come up with a new money-making idea that could revolutionise your life in 2023.
This really is a ‘new’ year for you and a time to embrace change and look to the future. This is because your planet Venus is in air sign Aquarius from the 3rd to the 27th and is joined by the Sun in Aquarius on the 20th.
Aquarius rules your career and vocation, your status and reputation. It’s the star sign at the peak of your horoscope linked to your future path. Aquarius rules technology and all things modern and this is an ideal month to consider how you can embrace future trends.
You could move a business online, set up a website or commit to a course of online study. You might be out and about within society, helping others and being committed to your beliefs, your values and your desire to bring about change.
There’s a New Moon in Aquarius on the 21st, a symbol of new beginnings and an ideal date to launch a new project.
Plus, you have the planet of change and reinvention Uranus in your star sign Taurus and Uranus turns direct the day after the New Moon on the 22nd. This is another indication that it’s not a time to stay stuck in the past as progress and all things new beckon.
A little bit of luck or inspiration could come your way on or around the 4th and 25th. Plus, the 30th is an excellent date to be persistent and go all out to get what you want.
