Libra 23rd Sep - 23rd Oct
YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE 2023
Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter are all on the move this year, the latter twice and the other two for the first time in years, making this a year of change. Yet in each case they aren’t moving into areas of your chart that aren’t already active, meaning that you have been preparing for this for years now. For Saturn that shift in focus will be significant, ending a visit to your romantic and creative sector that began in 2020 and returning to your busy work sector on 8th March, where he will spend the next three years. Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos but for the last few years he has not only been in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart but in a fellow Air sign. There might be quite a jolt when Saturn asks you to roll up your sleeves and get to work, but with Uranus here since 2019 this is something you are ready for.
With Neptune and Saturn both here until 2026, they will work as a team to shape things on the job front or whatever it is that keeps you busy for the next three years. While the Sun, Venus and Mercury will all move through a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart during Saturn’s final months and his departure on 8th March will leave it empty, not for long. It is just a few weeks later that Pluto, who has been in your home and family sector since 2008 will return on 24th March, just a few weeks after Saturn leaves. As an outer planet, this is never a hard and fast shift as will be the case for Jupiter and Saturn this year, with Pluto retrograding back out on 11th June before returning next year and then spending the next 20 years here. What Saturn has been preparing for or has asked you to invest in, Pluto will not only keep alive but as the planet of change and revolution will give you a chance to branch out from.
Meanwhile, while Jupiter has only been in your relationship sector for 11 days as you move into 2023, he had already spent five months here before retrograding back out last year. This is an opportunity for a do over, this time knowing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you from the start. Until leaving on 17th May and as the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system, Jupiter is putting a huge amount of focus on your relationships with an opportunity for growth and for major new beginnings. It is on 17th May that Jupiter will return to your financial sector to begin your biggest year for financial growth and expansion in over a decade. Yet once again this will not be a cold start, with Uranus here since 2019, ensuring that you are ready to hit the ground running from the start.
Love & Romance in 2021
From the very beginning, regardless of what the Sun and the faster planets are up to, this is a major year on both the romantic and relationship fronts, with some of the most powerful planets in the solar system either already involved or about to make their exit or entry. Just starting the year with Saturn in your romantic sector and Jupiter in your relationship sector is putting the two most powerful planets in the solar system front and centre. While Jupiter only returned late last year and is still in his early days in your relationship sector as you move into 2023, he had already spent five months here before retrograding back out last year. Jupiter has returned armed with everything needed to bring relationship growth until leaving on 17th May, though it is in February that things will really take off.
While Jupiter has just returned to your relationship sector, Saturn is preparing to leave your romantic sector on 8th March, ending a journey that began in 2020. Saturn can be a tough and demanding planet, but he has given you the ability to take your power back when it comes to matters of the heart. Helping to smooth out any of Saturn’s sharp edges will be Venus, with the planet of love returning to your romantic sector from 3rd January to 27th January. Venus will be working to get the year off to a romantically charged start and meeting up with Saturn here for the last time for another three decades, she will be drawing on the power he can give you to move mountains if you have to. With the Sun here from 20th January to 19th February and Mercury from 12th February to 3rd March, this will help to make Saturn’s final months here count.
However, while Saturn’s departure on 8th March will leave your romantic sector empty for the first time since 2020, not for long with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution returning for the first time in our lifetime just a few weeks later on 24th March. While Saturn is all about staying strong and inflexible, liking to stay between the lines, Pluto is a rulebreaker and will be encouraging you to have fun with what you have learned over recent years. By then things will be heating up on the relationship front, with Venus’ return on 20th February bringing the planets of love and luck together in your relationship sector for the first time in over a decade. Venus is only here until 17th March, but she will be followed by the Sun and Mercury, who from 19th March to 20th April will give you everything needed to make Jupiter’s time here count, before he too leaves on 17th May.
As you move into the new financial year the lunar nodes are still policing a balance between money coming in and money going out, but all the planetary activity is in your financial sector, the side of the financial fence where the focus is more on your financial situation and money matters. This is partly because with Uranus in your financial sector from 2019 to 2026 there is continuous planetary activity on this side of the financial fence, partly because it is in the first half of the year that the faster planets will move through and partly because things are set to become even more expansive. While there will be no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence until the second half of the year that is normally the case, which means that last year’s planetary activity hasn’t fully run its course and there is still natural momentum.
With the lunar nodes in your two money houses, this means that the New and Full Moons last year were eclipses and there are still two more to come before the North Node leaves your financial sector and the South Node your income sector on 18th July. The first will be an eclipsing Full Moon in your income sector on 6th May and the last an eclipsing Full Moon in your financial sector on 29th October. The Full Moon in your income sector will fall in the heart of the most active months of the year on the financial front while the Full Moon in your financial sector will fall during the most active months of the year on the income front, creating the push back that can lead to a breakthrough. Meanwhile with Uranus in retrograde motion in your financial sector until 23rd January, things are fairly quiet on the financial front, with things not really heating up until Venus returns from 17th March to 11th April.
However, this is the awakening of a sleeping giant for while this begins what are always the most active months of any year on the financial front, running through to the Sun’s departure on 21st May, this is just the lead up to Jupiter’s return on 17th May. With Jupiter not leaving until 26th May 2024, the planet of luck and expansion is returning to begin your biggest year for financial growth and expansion in over a decade. Meanwhile, while the first planetary activity on the income front for the year doesn’t begin until Mars returns to your income sector on 12th October, this will be worth the wait. The warrior planet of the cosmos will kick off the most lucrative months of 2023 and while only here until 24th November, the Sun and Mercury will build on from what he begins while it is Venus’ return from 5th December to 30th December that could be the most lucrative weeks of 2023.
Business & Career
As you move into the new professional year it has been just 11 days since Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion left your work sector, not to return for another decade. Even in ordinary times, this is something that will have created a huge amount of momentum while having begun what will take months if not years to fully play out. Jupiter had left last May but retrograded back in five months later, giving him a chance to return to what he began but also to spend more time with Neptune, the planet of dreams and fantasies. However, Jupiter also knew what was to come and this meant that he has left a lot of things open and has leaned heavily towards having a dream or something to aspire to, knowing that when Saturn returns on 8th March he will bring the discipline, structure and the time to turn dreams into reality.
However, a lot of water will pass under the bridge before then, starting with Venus’ return to your work sector on 3rd January. With the Sun not returning until 19th February, the day before Venus leaves this will give her time on her own with Neptune, with the planets of desire and dreams able to build on from Jupiter’s legacy, putting even more focus on wishful thinking. However, even if Saturn wasn’t on his way, it is while Mercury is here from 3rd March to 19th March and until the Sun leaves on 21st March that they will naturally focus more on the when, where and how. It is while the Sun and Mercury are here that Saturn will return, teaming up with Neptune, the planet of dreams here for the first time in our lifetime. Neptune has been here since 2012, plenty of time to work on the dream and until they both leave in early 2026, it is time now to make the dream a reality.
Meanwhile, while there is no planetary activity on the career front until Mars returns on 26th March, this will fire things up on the career front just weeks after Saturn’s return to your work sector. Unlike your work sector, which will remain continuously active for the next three years, all planetary activity in your career sector will run its course when the Sun leaves on 23rd July. This is a nearly three month window, during which time the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars will all move through, though in two windows. Mars is here from 26th March to 21st May and Venus from 8th May to 6th June, well before the Sun returns each year. They can get things started and focus more on firing things up, knowing that from 22nd June to 23rd July the Sun and Mercury can tie up loose ends.
