Wondering what the stars have in store for us in 2023? With so many planets, transits, shifts, and retrogrades, there’s a lot to consider. It can be overwhelming to try and make sense of it all this astrology. But don’t worry—I’ve got you covered! Read on to learn more about the 5 astrological transits that will shape 2023 and how they will affect us.
Saturn Shifts From Aquarius to Pisces ♓️
The first big shift of the year will come when Saturn moves from Aquarius into Pisces on March 7th. This will mark a major shift in energy, as Saturn has not been in Pisces since the early 90s. Saturn is known for its strict and structured nature, while Pisces is a sensitive and intuitive sign, so this transit may bring about a clash of energies. However, it also has the potential to offer opportunities for growth and healing, as Saturn in Pisces can help us confront and overcome our emotional wounds. This transit may also bring about a greater focus on spirituality and creativity, as well as a deeper connection to our subconscious minds.
Pluto Enters Aquarius ♒️
On March 23rd, Pluto will move from Capricorn into Aquarius. This transit could bring about some changes, particularly related to technology and communication. Pluto is known as the planet of transformation, and it stays in each zodiac sign for many years, bringing about deep and lasting change. As it enters Aquarius, it will trigger a shift in how we approach innovation, technology, and group dynamics. Aquarius is known for being unconventional, innovative, and forward-thinking, so the presence of Pluto in this sign may bring about a period of rapid change and disruption. We may see a focus on technology and social media as a means of creating connections and driving progress. Get ready for an influx of new ideas and ways of thinking!
Venus Retrograde In Leo ♌️
July 22nd to September 3rd, Venus will be retrograde in Leo. Now, before you start thinking this means you'll be wearing your heart on your sleeve, hold your horses! Venus retrogrades are notorious for bringing up unresolved issues around love, relationships, and finances. And when it's in Leo, the sign of drama and grand gestures, things could get pretty wild. You may find yourself reevaluating what you truly want from your relationships, or perhaps revisiting old flames and wondering if things could have turned out differently. Just remember, with Venus retrograde, what glitters may not necessarily be gold, so take everything with a grain of salt, and maybe leave the grand gestures for another time.
Jupiter Retrograde In Taurus ♉️
On May 16th, Jupiter will move from Aries into Taurus which could bring some relief and stability after some Aries upheaval in our lives. During this time we may feel more down to earth, enjoying the simple pleasures in life. This is a time for growth and gains.
Slowing down is key when Jupiter will be going Retrograde in Taurus from September 4th until December 30th. During this retrograde, you may find yourself reevaluating your relationship with money, and questioning whether you're truly living in alignment with your values. Jupiter retrograde in Taurus may bring some financial setbacks, but fear not, for these may be blessings in disguise, helping you to realign your priorities and focus on what truly matters.
Aries ♈️ & Libra ♎️ Lunar Nodes Of Destiny
On July 17th 2023 the North Node will move from Gemini into Aries and the South Node from Sagittarius into Libra. This is an important transit because it symbolizes the beginning of a new cycle in life where we must establish new goals, figure out our purpose, and strive for balance between physical needs versus spiritual needs/goals. This can be an exciting but daunting task; so take your time exploring different possibilities before making any decisions during this period as they may have long-term implications!
The Lunar Nodes represent our karmic path and destiny, and with Aries representing the self and Libra representing relationships, this transit may bring about a balancing act between personal growth and social connections. You may find yourself reevaluating the relationships in your life and wondering if they are truly serving your highest good.
And let's not forget about the 4 eclipses in 2023! We will be seeing 2 solar eclipses in the signs of Aries on April 20th and Libra on October 14th and 2 lunar eclipses in Scorpio on May 5th and Taurus on October 28th. These eclipses may bring about sudden endings and new beginnings, so if you've been feeling stuck in a rut, get ready to make some big moves! Overall, 2023 is shaping up to be a year of growth, change, and transformation, so hold on tight and enjoy the ride.
All this 2023 astrology points towards a transformative year! Remember, while the cosmos may guide us, it's up to us to manifest and step into our power. So let's embrace the astrological energy and see where it takes us this year!
