January 2023 is continuation of December celestial body design. As a few planets moved retrograde in December, they will color the first month of the year. The Sun, Venus and Mercury are in Capricorn, also Pluto. Here we go, we have 4 planets in serious, business oriented Capricorn. Mercury is moving Retrograde; Mars entered Gemini in August 2022, also started it is retro cycle in October 30.2022 to move direct on January 12.2023. As Capricorn rules business, government and money, we can expect to have difficulty in these fields. January can be confusing, difficult with unexpected choking news about money, government, stock market. Be patient when setting intentions for the year ahead—because, as soon as Spring arrives, the pace of life will pick up tremendously!
Transformation, Discovery and Changes
Since 2008, Pluto’s transit through Capricorn, a cardinal or activation archetype, has been swinging the wrecking ball on systems, structures, and consciousness that have outworn their utility. Capricorn correlates to time and time spans, to the aging process, mortality, and to the limits of reality. Before move permanently in Aquarius in 2024, Pluto in Capricorn accelerates the process of bringing an era to a close while simultaneously building a new framework.
The transformation that started 2 years ago with Pluto return in the USA natal chart continues in 2023 as well. Pluto is the planet of the finances, of life and death, of the underworld. Pluto asks for transformation and change. In order to have new world, we have to remove, clean, to purge everything that is spoiled and unnecessary, the old that doesn’t work or is rotten. Pluto and Scorpio’s symbol is the bird of Phoenix. The legend say, it has to die and burn in the ashes before it will be reborn, stronger and more powerful. Yes, we are in the process of this transformation, we lost millions of people, we went through difficult time of diseases, isolation, financial crises and unemployment. We are at the last stage of Pluto transformation, but as we know, Pluto is a slow moving planet. it takes many years to make the changes. Pluto is heading toward the sign of freedom and democracy, the sign of “we the people” – the revolutionary Aquarius which cares for community, for people, for better life for all, where people take control, instead of small group of people to control the masses. In March 2023, Pluto is moving to Aquarius. Keep in mind, Pluto going to move to Aquarius March 24.2023, but it will be back to Capricorn in June 12.2023 to finish its job in Capricorn. Then, again Pluto will move to Aquarius in January 22.2024. Long passage from Capricorn to Aquarius. We still have to work on the unfinished business, we can not start anything new before we complete our job, before we clear the road from the old and rotten. Be prepared, as these changes take place not only in personal level, they takes place in the entire world.
How Pluto going to influence when moves to Aquarius? Historically, Pluto’s transit through Aquarius is a time of upheavals, revolutions and rebellions, significant social and political development, modernization, and momentous inventions that influence the quality of daily existence. When Pluto was in Aquarius 256 years ago,1778 -1797: The USA had declared independence in 1776 so the Brits were in retreat, though elsewhere were fighting the French, Spanish, Dutch and Indians in different spats. The French Revolution of 1793 had a dramatic effect and not just in France, though this was partially due to Pluto being opposition Uranus. The Industrial Revolution was in full swing having got under way during Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is at the last degrees of Capricorn, in 2022, we see and hear about unrest, revolutions, striking everywhere in the world. The last few days 370 groups in Germany are organized and ready to strike, as they invest money and ready to fight for their rights. People in Canada are not humbled, either. We have organized movement in the states, as well, but our media is not report them. Now, you know what I am talking about. The people in our country are prepared, as well to fight for our freedom and our constitution.
Pluto transits Aquarius from 2024 until 2044. The past experience associates this phase with an upsurge of more significant rebellions than usual and a flowering of inventions. The transit (2023 -2044) will see speed up the shedding, demolition, and restructuring process now begun. Some will meet the evolutionary mandate with foresight, utilizing cooperative, inclusive, and visionary ways. Others will meet the inevitability of the changing times in varying degrees of resistance. When it comes to the evolutionary imperative, resistance is fruitless. At an extreme, it sets up the potential for shock waves, consequence, and the catastrophic. Aquarius awakens, liberates, and accelerates. It is the archetype that shatters barriers and breaks records. The process is dual. It is destructive and constructive, ending and rebirth at the same time. A new age of humanity is in its incubation phase. The Pluto in Aquarius years will drive the building of a new global village prototype. It is in the face of threats to existence, that we come to recognize the universal truth, that we are all equal and that no one is greater than or lesser than. This is a key lesson of Aquarius.
The air we breathe, the water we drink, and the ground we stand on belongs to all. The ultimate path of service for the Aquarius archetype calls for a unique and significant contribution to the group, to the well being of the whole. To this purpose, every individual, every organism, every life, every life form has a vital contribution to make.
TIME TO LOOK AHEAD
Uranus,the planet of freedom and revolution moves direct on January 23.2023. This is a great news, as Uranus was retro for the last five month. Uranus is the planet of shocks and surprises, but it was inhibited while in retrograde. It’s been a period of relative quiet, but when it’s direct we may experience both brilliant and disturbing ideas and events.
Uranus in Taurus represents sudden and unexpected events, including revolutionary ways of handling and dealing with money, both nationwide and worldwide, which we’ve seen during its time in this sign. So if you think the past five months have been chaotic, you ain’t seen nothing’ yet.
This is all part of the transformational times we’re living in, and as frightening as it may be, such change is needed to redirect humanity toward a better future.
FIND THE ANSWER WITHIN YOU, LISTEN TO YOUR OWN GUIDANCE
The other big sweeping change comes from Saturn, the karma, responsibility, structure loving Saturn. On March 11.2023 Saturn moves to the last sign of the zodiac- spiritual compassionate Pisces to stay here until February 2026. During the last 2 and half years in Aquarius, Saturn make a lot of restriction on our freedom, now, it goes to water sign of Pisces. Pisces are the most creative sign, they have vision, intuition, they rule our unconscious mind. Now is the time for self evaluation, finding answers within, from our heart, not from outside world. Writing our dreams and healing our mind and body will be the most important.
Saturn in Pisces make us serious about things like spirituality, the imagination, visualization and living a compassionate life. We are seeking a form for the mysteries we experience. Saturn in Pisces is not a good time for finances, or to invest in the market, even the opposite, it can bring unexpected surprises, market may crash, as Saturn is in Pisces and Jupiter in Aries.
When Jupiter moves to Taurus, then Saturn and Jupiter make sextile in June 2023, then we can see better development and increase in the market, then we can take action, as the economy will pick up, as well. In general, after May and the second half of the year, are will do better for personal, as well as business, and professional development.
The planet Saturn is similar to delay, punishment, agony, pain, grief, despair, and all that we consider undesirable. But that is the real identity of Saturn and we cannot escape it, if we don’t know the law of Saturn. Of course, astrological remedies can help us reduce our pain during the difficult aspects. Ultimately, we have to take responsibility for our pain because Saturn gives us what we deserve in exchange for what we did in past.
Saturn in Pisces is a similar life path like Saturn traveling in our 12 house – the house of isolation, healing, karma and suffering. Since Pisces is the last 12th sign, it’s the realm of the veiled, the abandoned and the lost, we could become an authoritative figure in places where others fear to tread, like prisons, lonely bins or a homeless shelter.
With Saturn in Pisces, there’s a built-in pressure to meet uncertainty with courage and discipline. Our karmic tests shows how to cultivate faith, face our fears of being submerged, and learn how to manage emotional intensity. Saturn is all about trial and fault. Through these experiences, we’ll know how to create a protective barrier, without shutting down completely.
Since Pisces is a sign of spirituality and healing, we must turn inside, we must meditate, we have to write our dreams when we get up in a morning before we get in touch with the outside world and then listen to the signals of our subconscious mind. etrospective thinking, moving slowly, asking our angels for guidance, raising our vibrations and working to get to higher dementia, are the key word how we can find peace and answers to our burning questions.
HOW TO NAVIGATE COMMUNICATIONS
Mars, the planet of action and motivation have been traveling in Gemini since August 2022, as it is Retro from October 30 to January 12.2023. The last three months were months of frustrations and difficulty, as Mars retro had bad manner and brought many negative news. On January 12, Mars finally goes forward and the roads are open, it is easy to travel by land or by air, communications are improved. Even though, Mars in Gemini is not in it is best position, especially for the USA as it takes place in the 7 house of enemies, it cause many conflicts and turbulence.
During the time Mars in Gemini, learn new communication skills, be patient and count until 10 before you say something, if you don’t want to feel sorry later.
Gemini is the sign of media, journalism and transportation. Expect shocking news or problem with logistics, communication and transportation.
By January 12, Mars move direct, we slowly but surely get into action, reconstructing or refueling our security with clearer goals.
By March 26, Mars will move to family oriented sign of Cancer.
ARE YOU ARE THRILLER SEEKER OR CREATOR AND BUILDER?
Jupiter is the largest and luckiest of all the true planets. It’s the planet of expansion, growth, and optimism, and has a reputation for blessing us with good luck and fortune. Jupiter is all about expanding our wealth, as well as our minds. This planet is associated with the higher mind, philosophy, truth, and religion, giving us a larger lens through which we can view the world.
Jupiter moved to Aries in December 20 and will be in Aries until May 17. 2023.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. Aries is self-focused. Aries teaches us the importance of mining the gold that is buried inside us all. And if that means screening out every other human for a day or three, so be it. Between now and May 16, indulge in periodic bouts of self-authorized self-obsession. Because you ARE that awesome. Aries are the pioneer of the zodiac. Although Jupiter is the planet of good fortune, we believe in the expression that “luck is where preparation meets opportunity.” Aries is one of the most confident, fearless signs. So, if you want to be more than a flash in the pan, do NOT rest on your laurels during this transit. Tap into the elevated, courageous vibes and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Aries is the sign of the warrior and Jupiter amplifies whatever energy it touches. In this fierce and trailblazing sign, Jupiter riles up everyone’s combative, “me first” energy. Egos get supersized. Narcissists act out. Incredible leaders emerge as the smoke of this fire sign’s blaze begins to clear. With each clumsy light we figure out how to do it better next time. It’s all about failing faster and then getting up to try, try again.
Jupiter will move to stable, slow moving, practical Taurus on May 17.2023. This period actually point to changes of the energy, in a positive way, as Taurus rules money, finances, the land, luxury and pleasure, a good food. This a good sign that from now on, we can have better economy, we can expect lucky financial development and prosperity in many levels.
Taurus is an Earth sign. With an Earth sign Jupiter, we are practical realists who need to visualize results in order to feel motivated to achieve them. We are “doers” who are not easily lured by get rich quick schemes! During this cycle, we are not risk takers–we need direction, clear goals, and strong plans, and we value tangible results. More specifically with Jupiter in Taurus, we attract the most good fortune when we are charitable, generous but discriminating, and patient. Prosperous areas are ones that allow us to discriminate and determine the worth of products and to draw upon our resourcefulness, as well as financial and investments. A strong self-image or feelings of self-worth contribute to success.
Jupiter in Taurus is a chance to make real movement towards a dream or long-term goal. We’ll be energized to make practical, planned to-do lists and start checking off items one by one until we get the end result we’ve been working towards. During this time, we have Jupiter’s desire for growth and Taurus’ patient and headstrong demeanor encouraging us to trust the process and reach a clear, tangible level of success. Life can be highly prosperous when Jupiter is in Taurus. Jupiter is the planet of good luck and fortune, while Taurus is the sign of wealth and money. At its best, this cosmic energy can yield big dollar results. The Jupiter in Taurus transit is a good time to look into our financial standings and find chances for growth.
The only downside of Jupiter in Taurus is that we can overeat or spend too much money or time on pleasurable activities. The earth and the environment should be our concerns. Ask yourself: What you value most? Think, write and do what’s motivates you, what’s moves you, what is the most important in your life? During the next 12 months, as Jupiter will stay 12 months in Taurus, be loyal to your values and work to reach your goals.
STEP INTO NEW YOU. BRAVELY, COURAGE, SOVEREIGNTY
Bravely, courage and sovereignty are the key words for 2023. Every year, it is normal to have one New moon in every sign. In 2023, we are going to witness two New Moon in the same sign of Aries. These will powerful, significant, they will bring life changing events, bravely, sovereignty, bold action and new beginning. The first one is the Pink New Moon is on March 21st.2023, it is a day after the spring Equinox 2023. Then, on April 20.2023, we have New Moon Hybrid Solar eclipse, again in Aries, this time at 29 degrees of Aries. WOW! It is rear, it is compelling sign for profound shift. This is time for new beginning, for new start, new endeavors, new bold action and enterprises. Aries are warrior, they are always in the first line, they are these that make change in the world.
Both New Moons, in March and April are in action oriented, pioneer, brave, a fire sign of Aries. Jupiter here plays like the good fairy, supports and motivates for brave actions, as Jupiter travels through Aries until May 17, when it moves to Taurus. The eclipse or the North node is changing from Taurus/ Scorpio to Aries and Libra, as we are going to have a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra in October 14 2023.
LOVE, RELATIONSHIPS AND MONEY
Venus will be retrograde in the sign of artistic Leo on July 23.2023 to September 04.2023. For 43 days, the planet of love, money, values, harmony and diplomacy will be retrograde. During this time, our love life enters a fated period. Giving and receiving love and affection becomes challenging. Old friends or lovers may reappear or we may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues. Venus also rules money, it is not an ideal time for investing or buying luxury items. Never get married during Venus retro. No big parties! Rethink your relationships. It is OK to go back to old lover, but be cautious if you start a new relationship now. If you do, move slowly, make sure you are with he right person, investigate him or her, make sure he/she is available, as you don’t want to find out later that you are in a love triangle.
BE CONSCIOUS! GET CLOSE TO THE NATURE! BE THE LIGHT!
2023 is the year under the influence of earth and water, as most of the heavy planets are in earth and water signs. The year starts with the Sun, Venus and Mercury in Capricorn, Pluto is in Capricorn, as well. Uranus in Taurus, Neptune is in Pisces. Saturn will move in March from Aquarius to to Pisces, too. What this means to all of us? It is going to be a year that we have to turn to the planet earth- to take care of it, also, to spend more time in the nature. The mother earth asks us to learn not to be in a hurry, to move and act slow, to find peace and guidance inside of us. Having joy, pleasing our senses in more natural way, enjoying everything wonderful that the nature gives us. It is time to move slowly, to evaluate our life, to ask ourselves what we really want, what we want to improve or what new skills to learn that we need to survive during difficult time. Consistent work and thoughtfulness will be rewarded. Finding answer within our heart will be the best. Turning toward the nature for relaxation and for healing (earth), asking our angels for guidance (water). We are stepping into Aquarius age. As Pluto moves to Aquarius, it gives as a sign that the changes and transformations are in progress, it make take a few years, but we are moving into the right direction. The old system is crumbling, Pluto is going back and fort again to Capricorn, then on January 24.2024, it moves out and get to Aquarius, for the next 20 years. Aquarius is known as the revolutionary sign of freedom. It can be turbulent time, but we know that after the storm, we will be glad to see the rainbow. Pluto will remain in Aquarius until January 19.2044. Yes, for the next 20 years.
We are the cause of everything around us, is thought, mixed with emotions. It is time to think what we do and to act slowly. When we take “unreasonable responsibility” for being the cause of everything in our life – maybe some of the things we created originated from an unconscious place, but we still ultimately created them – we empower our self. Get closer to the nature, save it, use it properly, spend more time outside. Create, sow, grow and eat plants, fruits and vegetables. Everything has a rhythm to it. The seasons of the year have a rhythm to them, as do how we eat, sleep, and wake up. To surf successfully, you have to get in rhythm with the waves. Rhythm is essential in music. Rhythm works everywhere. In life and anything we’re working on, we are in rhythm when we’re not rushing or doubting; we’re riding the wave and feeling things out and adjusting.
Stay positive, turn toward the nature, see the new revolutionary world and action from higher dimension, try to imagine and see the rebirth of the world. This is the year to turn into spirituality, to see the light, to be a light, to spread love and compassion; to unite, to reevaluate our value system, as we will be transformed, as the whole world will be changed.
