“By our choices we create our future”
Since January 2020 when Pluto crashed into Saturn sending a Pandemic surging through our world, and Saturn-square-Uranus pitted the People against the Establishment, separation has become extreme! Isolation has taken a toll on our personal health while social media has further divided us, leaving us in unfamiliar territory, uncertain of the road ahead! And yet we are on the brink of major CHANGE!
Astrologically, all planets have turned direct EXCEPT unpredictable Uranus-in-Taurus, pesky Mars-in-Gemini, and intent Mercury-in-Capricorn, which remain retrograde as we enter 2023. However, all 3 planets will turn direct in January, so REAL forward progress can be anticipated as new vistas of possibility open for discovery. The future looks auspiciously full of potential for those who walk their talk and live authentically from the heart, while the controllers, the self-serving, or the manipulated will likely tumble. 2023 marks a significant paradigm shift within humanity’s consciousness as we undergo massive historic planetary CHANGE!
Not only have all planets turned direct by February 2023, but one by one, the outer planets are all changing signs over the next 3 years as well, and with them, our attitudes, opinions, and frequencies are also shifting. Furthermore, the outer planets are all moving from earth and water signs into fire and air signs, activating more exciting new agendas, out-of-the-box solutions, while new technological and social dilemmas will arise as the planets change signs, dimensions intersect, and new visions of our world emerge.
Since Winter Solstice eve Dec 20, 2022 when Jupiter crossed into Aries, bold new actions have been in play. Chiron also went direct in Aries around New Year’s Day, so personal and societal healing will be facilitated this year. Together Jupiter and Chiron will ignite positive New Awakenings in 2023! Jupiter will bless Aries natives, sharing benefits with fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) until mid-May, when Jupiter enters Taurus, benefiting earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) and water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) for the rest of the year.
Jupiter will conjunct the North Node on May 27th, further expanding growth and prosperity for your legacy purpose and projects. Be aware that Jupiter can also scatter and waste energies that arise from ego or over-reach, so check your intentions before you leap. Choose a path that warms your heart. Plant seeds of substance this spring, so that the harvest down the road will resonate with your Soul!
Pluto will touch Aquarius from March 24th into June before tiptoeing back into Capricorn to complete its unfinished business of collapsing outdated structures. Governments will dissolve and hierarchies will fall as greater Truth is revealed! Then on November 20, 2024 Pluto will dive into egalitarian Aquarius for the next 20 years! Pluto last entered Aquarius in 1777, when our nation was being born through radical transformation. Today a New Earth is being born! As the corporate mogul-mind of Capricorn gives way to community and humanitarian focus, innovative Aquarius will benefit us ALL conceptually and technologically, and not just the privileged few.
In July 2023, the Moon’s Nodes slip from the Taurus/Scorpio axis onto the Aries/Libra axis for 16 months, transitioning from the realm of values and passions onto the cardinal World Axis of action and global partnerships. Beauty, justice, and gender relations, as well as issues of war and peace, will likely surface this year due to the Mars/Venus rulership of the in-coming Nodes and eclipses. In addition, Venus is out-of-bounds in April-May while Mars is out-of-bounds for 6 months into May. Since out-of-bounds planets tend to generate extreme irrational behaviors, we can expect some out-of-the-ordinary events to occur this spring.
When Pluto squares the Nodes in August, our sense of personal sovereignty may be challenged. Do not give in to fear, for that is how we are controlled. Do your inner work and develop a deep faith in yourself. Explore who you are on the inside and invest your time and focus on your evolution, because the ‘objective reality’ is but a hologram. Build confidence and trust in who you authentically know yourself to be, which brings its own peace. And be grateful for any love or guidance that lights your path, and helps you to handle whatever life throws your way.
Saturn in Pisces
Saturn spent 2 years in intellectual Aquarius, helping us develop discernment. But Saturn will enter Pisces on March 8th, encouraging more spirituality, charity, and compassion. Saturn will clarify the issues, while Neptune confuses us and dissolves our resolve to fix our problems. Then Saturn hurls reality checks at conspiracy theories, exposing their lies and secrets. Our society is founded on so many false constructs, but now the falsehoods are collapsing and the veils and fences are being removed.
Alas, the shakeup of our world will be so disturbing for some that massive mental health and drug problems will escalate, as the world so many were taught to believe in dissolves before their eyes or morphs into something unrecognizable.
Know that whatever happens in the world around you does not have to dictate your life. YOU have more authority over your own reality than you realize, but only if you choose to stand up for yourself and to make your dreams happen. Where you focus your attention is where you are creating your future with your thoughts, and if you are not evolving, then you are devolving, so CHOOSE the life you want to live NOW!
Even Neptune which spends 14 years in a sign is changing signs and will enter Aries in April of 2025. After 14 years in Pisces, crossing the Aries Point marks a big change as it begins its next 160-year cycle in 2 years. Now that’s going to feel like a big shift!
Uranus, the final outer planet to change signs, enters Gemini in July 2025. There are so many outer-planet sign changes within 3 years (Jupiter into Aries, Pluto into Aquarius, the Nodes into Aries/Libra, Saturn into Pisces, and Uranus into Gemini – all by 2025) that the alterations within our society will be major and surprising. The trickiest part of this metamorphosis may be learning to adjust gracefully to the changes, rather than the actual changes themselves.
Acknowledging that we are in transition, striving toward ever higher evolution, remain flexible and open to the many fortuitous opportunities that will come your way in 2023. Find your tribe, strengthen your faith and trust in yourself, root yourself in your heart, and leap into an amazing New Year, shining brightly!
