Oct - 21st Nov
YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE 2023
While they won’t all be in play at the same time Jupiter, Mars and Venus will all contribute to making this not only the most powerful professional year in over a decade but encompassing both job and career matters. The year begins with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your work sector and while he has only been here for 11 days by the time you move into this new professional year, he had already spent five months here before retrograding back out seven weeks earlier. Your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade actually began last May and while it might have appeared that things got off to a false start this allowed you to plant seeds and lay down tracks for when he returned, with the planet of luck and expansion having returned with a mandate and knowing what to focus on from the start.
Jupiter is here until 17th May, with Venus’ return on 20th February the point when the faster planets will return to get things up to speed, something that will end with the Sun’s departure on 20th April. It is while the Sun is here that there will be two New Moons, the second on 20th April not only a solar eclipse but just weeks before Jupiter is due to leave. Meanwhile, it is just days after Jupiter leaves on 17th May that Mars will return to your career sector on 21st May, with the warrior planet of the cosmos timing his first visit in two years to perfection. However, the real game changer will be what happens while Mars is here, with Venus returning on 6th June to begin her longest visit to your career sector in our lifetime, with a retrograde turn keeping her here until 9th October. This will not only give things a massive boost on the career front through the middle months of the year but will keep the momentum that Jupiter has created on the job front going.
Meanwhile, by then Jupiter will have moved on and on 17th May will return to your relationship sector, where he will spend the next 12 months and with perfect timing. Jupiter returns to begin your most important relationship year in over a decade just as Pluto is beginning to transition out of your communication sector, where he has been since 2008. Pluto will leave on 24th March but will retrograde back in on 11th June, just a few weeks after Jupiter’s return to your relationship sector, with the two then working hand in hand for the rest of the year. Meanwhile, Saturn is also on the move, leaving your home and family sector on 8th March where he has been since 2020. This may have been a challenging few years but with a chance to enjoy the benefits once Saturn is gone with Pluto, your ruling planet returning to change things up on 24th March. Meanwhile, Saturn will return to your romantic and creative sector on 8th March, a much easier place for him to be and where he will stay for the next three years.
With Neptune in your romantic sector since 2012 and Uranus in your relationship sector since 2019 and both here until 2026, there is continuous planetary activity on the romantic and relationship fronts throughout the year or at least that is the case at this period in your life. However, there are not only times when things will be active and especially when the faster planets move through, but both are set to get a serious and game changing boost this year. It was only late last year that Jupiter left your romantic sector for the second time in 2022 but this time, he won’t be back. However, when Venus, the planet of love returns on 27th January she will be keen to capitalise on the growth this has made possible. Venus will be alone with Neptune until the Sun returns on 19th February, giving the planets of love and dreams plenty of time to work their magic.
While Venus will leave a day later, this will get the year off to a romantically charged start. However, it is while the Sun is here from 19th February to 21st March and Mercury from 3rd March to 19th March that everything changes again, with Saturn returning for his first visit in three decades and for his first encounter with Neptune in your romantic sector in our lifetime. Neptune is the planets of dreams and fantasies and Saturn is the planet of structure and discipline but this is a partnership that will run through to early 2026 when they will both leave. Saturn’s return is a chance to get serious about matters of the heart and where Jupiter has spent most of last year working with Neptune to fuel your romantic dreams, the hard taskmaster of the cosmos can help turn those dreams into reality.
Until Neptune leaves in January 2026 and Saturn a month later, they will work as an unlikely team to create the most powerful romantic years in our lifetime. Not to be outdone, there is something special developing on the relationship front as well. Things will become more active on the relationship front when Venus, the planet of love returns on 17th March to work her magic and before she can leave on 11th April Mercury, the planet of communication will return on 4th April to begin what should be a two week mission to give your relationships a voice. Instead, a retrograde phase will keep Mercury here throughout the Sun’s month long visit from 20th April to 21st May, not leaving on 12th June. This will prove a massive advantage when on 17th May Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returns to begin the most expansive 12 months on the relationship front in over a decade.
Because the Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your income sector, the solar spotlight is always on your income situation, matters and options as you move into the New Year. While Mars won’t visit your income sector in 2023, every planet that will spend time here this year are all here from day one and while they won’t stay here, this gets this new financial year off to an empowered and potentially lucrative start. The first to leave will be Venus, with the planet of money leaving on 3rd January and then unlike the Sun and Mercury, who will both return in December, then not returning until 2024. This makes it important to listen to your heart and to focus more on wishful thinking as you move into the new financial year with the Sun, Mercury and Pluto staying to help with the when, where and how.
While the Sun and Mercury are only passing through, starting the year with Pluto, the planet of change and revolution here has been the norm since his return in 2008 and after they leave, he will keep the wheels turning. The Sun will leave on 20th January, but Mercury will stay on and that will prove to be a major advantage. Mercury returned in early December 2022 for what is normally a two week chance to use his smart head for money to get your head in the game and to think on your feet but instead, a retrograde turn will keep him here until 11th February. Mercury is still in retrograde motion as you move into this new financial year and until turning direct on 19th January brings a chance to spend time back at the drawing board. What makes Mercury’s extended stay significant is on 24th March Pluto will leave, leaving your income sector empty for the first time in over 14 years.
That won’t be the case for long, with Pluto retrograding back in on 11th June but this is the beginning of the end of his time here, leaving again in January before returning later next year, then not returning again in our lifetime. What makes the timing of Pluto’s return on 11th June significant is that he will retrograde back in to ensure no stones have been left unturned just weeks after Jupiter will return to your work sector on 17th May to begin your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade. Meanwhile, the other side of the financial fence will get a much needed boost when Mars returns for his first visit to your financial sector in two years on 26th March. This is early in the year for planetary activity on this side of the financial fence, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have but the timing couldn’t be better. Mars is here until 21st May and Venus from 8th May to 6th June, with the planets of money and passion able to operate during the only time this year or in the last 14 years when there is no planetary activity on the income side of the financial fence. It is in June and July that the Sun and Mercury will focus more on financial housekeeping.
Business & Career
The professional gods have dialled up an exciting year on both the job and career fronts, though with one obvious from the start and the other less obvious but leading directly on from the first. What will be obvious from the start is the focus on work and job matters, as for the first time in over a decade you move into a new professional year with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your work sector. As you move into 2023 Jupiter has only been here for 11 days, but what has the potential to be your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade actually began back in May 2022. This is when Jupiter first returned and while he retrograded back out five months later, this gave him time to plant seeds, lay down tracks and explore your options, with his return late last year not only a chance to take up from where he left off but for a complete do over. This time you are ready and prepared to make this count.
Jupiter is only here until 17th May but in that time, he will put into just under five months what he would normally tackle in a year, with so much already banked. Jupiter is also speeding up and this time there will be no stops and no detours, just a push from the largest and most powerful planet in the solar system to create as much job growth and expansion as possible in that time. Jupiter will have help from the faster planets, with Venus moving through from 20th February to 17th March, Mercury from 19th March to 4th April and the Sun from 21st March to 20th April. Two New Moons will also give this a lot of momentum, the first an ordinary New Moon on 22nd March and the second a solar eclipse on 20th April, this time bringing the elements of fate and luck into play.
Jupiter’s departure on 17th May will see things dial back on the job front but with more than enough momentum to keep the wheel turning for the rest of the year. However, it is just a few days later that something extraordinary will start to happen on the career front, with Mars conveniently returning for this first visit to your career sector in two years from 21st May to 11th June, two months before the Sun will normally put the focus on career matters. As well as firing things up professionally and especially on the career front, Mars will return to capitalise on the months that Jupiter has just spent in your work sector. However, it is what comes next that is the game changer, with Venus returning for what is normally a 24 day visit on 6th June but not leaving until 9th October. This will be Venus’ longest visit to your career sector in our lifetime, giving the planet of money, desire and attraction plenty of time to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction.
