New year, new beginnings, new opportunities: discover what’s in the stars for you in 2023
By Sara Segat / Matthew staff || Edited by Victoria Vega
It’s our pleasure to welcome you back. Here are your astrology predictions for the upcoming year of 2023.
As always, you may check your sun sign, moon sign, and rising (or ascendant) sign when reading all about what’s coming your way. While the sun determines your ego and true inner persona, and the moon regulates your moods, emotions, and feelings, the ascendant acts as your façade – the outer, more physical part of your persona.
You may approach these predictions considering what each of the big three (sun, moon, and rising) stand for. For example: if you are an Aries sun, Taurus moon, and Gemini rising, you should check the first three predictions and reflect upon them in terms of the planets those signs are in and what those planets represent in your life (see above).
1. ♈︎ Aries | March 21 – April 19 | fire
For you, 2023 will be all about resilience. This year wants you to be combative and ready to face anything that might come your way. You will learn how to handle moments of pressure and difficulties that catch you off guard. But fear not, Jupiter will be on your side all year round, bringing you luck and optimism when you need it the most. 2023 could be the right time to finally face some of your biggest challenges: thinking before speaking and allocating the right amount of time to everything. If you do, success is sure to follow.
2. ♉︎ Taurus | April 20 – May 20 | earth
For you, 2023 will be all about change. This year wants you to become the best version of yourself you could possibly be. You will learn how to make more space for better, healthier habits and for your loved ones. With Uranus in your sign until the end of 2024, you will see many aspects of your life changing for the better. Don’t forget, however, that nothing really comes out of thin air, so make the most of the goodness of 2023 by always taking the first step towards your goals and always being open to learning new ways of seeing the world.
3. ♊︎ Gemini | May 21 – June 20 | air
For you, 2023 will be all about alignment. This year wants you to focus on yourself, your ambitions, and even your weaknesses. You will learn how to make the most of your duality to achieve inner balance. With Mars and Venus in your favor all year round, expect this inner balance to be the source of more self-love and romantic opportunities. Always remember to prioritize your personal growth and peace, as 2023 could finally mark a turning point in your life in terms of knowledge, acceptance, and empowerment of your truest identity.
4. ♋︎ Cancer | June 21 – July 22 | water
For you, 2023 will be all about passion. This year wants you to get out of your comfort zone to follow what thrills you most. You will learn how to cultivate your energy and enthusiasm to attract exciting opportunities. Jupiter will advance many of these opportunities, but keep in mind that Saturn will also slow you down when you need to make sense of everything that’s coming your way this year. This combination allows you to be protected throughout 2023, while still being able to make it a highly transformative and enlightening experience for you.
5. ♌︎ Leo | July 23 – August 22 | fire
For you, 2023 will be all about gratitude. This year wants you to embrace contentment to appreciate who you are and what you have. You will learn to cherish the progress you are making and everything you have already achieved, rather than focus on what is not there yet. But your ambitions will never be outshined, and with Jupiter on your side for a good part of 2023, you can expect this year to bring you many of the things you want. Just remember that attracting those things into your life is much easier if you appreciate what’s already there.
6. ♍︎ Virgo | August 23 – September 22 | earth
For you, 2023 will be all about patience. This year wants you to take a step back, avoid rushing to conclusions, and make good use of your innate analytical abilities in all areas of life. You will learn to look for the good in every situation, which will inevitably present you with many more opportunities. Mars and Mercury will support you throughout 2023 by bringing luck when you need it; you just need to make sure to maintain a positive outlook and to take your time when dealing with all sorts of situations, so good things will come.
7. ♎︎ Libra | September 23 – October 22 | air
For you, 2023 will be all about adapting. This year wants you to look into yourself and look for new ways to open yourself to others and to the world. You will learn to prioritize social activities and to balance them with moments to recharge in private. With Mars on your side for a good part of 2023, you will have a lot of energy, but make sure you use it wisely. Keep in mind, the efforts you make for others is still energy consumption, so never forget to balance it by allocating enough time for yourself, too. After all, your sign flourishes with balance.
8. ♏︎ Scorpio | October 23 – November 21 | water
For you, 2023 will be all about clarity. This year wants you to trust the process, as many doubts you are dealing with now will become suddenly clear by the end of the year. You will learn to be confident in the progress you’ve made and see the way it’s ultimately shaped you into the person you are. With Jupiter in your favor all year round, good things will follow, as long as you focus on bringing that progress forth – be it by opting for healthier habits, cherishing new encounters, or looking for exciting opportunities. Remember, ask yourself questions.
9. ♐︎ Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21 | fire
For you, 2023 will be all about exploration. This year wants you to adapt to transformations that will occur and that you yourself will incite. You will learn to cultivate your inner and outer persona by trying out a little bit of everything. With Jupiter in your favor for most of 2023, your explorations will not only bring you much joy, but will also lead you to success in all the major areas of your life (self, love, work, community). With the right mindset and a good dose of wanderlust and reflection, this year will likely be one of your best.
10. ♑︎ Capricorn | December 22 – January 19 | earth
For you, 2023 will be all about strength. This year wants you to get out there, speak up for yourself, and foster your leadership skills to achieve your goals. You will learn to overcome your fears and ultimately learn from those experiences. Jupiter will support you all year round, so the challenges that might interfere with your plans will be eased. Never forget that with luck and success also comes a great deal of responsibility, so manage everything with a critical eye. However, you should also make space for moments of tenderness and openness.
11. ♒︎ Aquarius | January 20 – Feb 18 | air
For you, 2023 will be all about opportunities. This year wants you to direct your energies towards your big goals, as there are high chances you will finally make the progress needed to achieve them. You will learn how to use your imagination to find creative solutions and motivate you in all areas of your life. With Jupiter in Taurus and Saturn in your sign for the first part of the year, you will have all the energy and the luck to make things happen. For this, think of other people as well, and perhaps use this year to create for the common good.
12. ♓︎ Pisces | February 19 – March 20 | water
For you, 2023 will be all about learning. This year wants you to spread knowledge, kindness, and happiness in your community, and to nurture your selfless spirit. You will learn to make the most of uncertainties by embracing them, and surprising yourself and others; this will allow you to discover things about yourself and the world around you. Mars will challenge you on-and-off this year, but if you keep a positive attitude, challenges easily become useful lessons. Never forget to take time on your own to recharge: that’s how lessons become clear.
