While Jupiter left Pisces late last year, as you move into 2023 the planet of luck and expansion has only been gone for 11 days and the foundation year for this new Jupiter cycle of expansion has only just ended. While Jupiter has moved on and until leaving your income sector on 17th May will be working to get the year off to a lucrative start as he works to make this the biggest year for income growth and expansion in over a decade, he has left behind a lot of unfinished business in Pisces and more importantly Neptune, the planet of dreams and fantasies and your ruling planet. The year begins with Neptune on his own again but not for long, with Venus returning on 27th January. This will give the planets of desire and dreams a chance to spend a few weeks together before the Sun returns to begin your birthday month and new solar year on 19th February, a day before Venus leaves.
It is once Venus leaves but while Mercury, in Pisces from 3rd March to 19th March is here that everything changes. On 8th March Saturn will not only return to Pisces for the first time in three decades but to join up with Neptune, who has been in your sign since 2012, for the first time here in our lifetime. Where Jupiter was able to fuel a sense of what’s possible and help build the dream, Saturn is all about discipline, structure and here with Neptune now for the next three years, this is when it is time to get serious about turning dreams into reality. With both here until early 2026, this brings you to the start of a three year period that everything until now has led up to and everything from now will lead on from.
Meanwhile, while Neptune and Saturn will work on the dreams that Jupiter has helped to reshape, the planets of luck and dreams will be working to make his time in your income sector before leaving on 17th May as lucrative as possible. While Jupiter will only spend the first five months of 2023 in your income sector, he had spent five months here last year before retrograding back out and then returning, making these the most potentially lucrative months of the year. This is something that Venus will be keen to exploit when she returns to your work sector on 6th June for what should for the planet of money be a 24 day mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Instead, a retrograde turn on 23rd July will keep her here until 9th October, with Venus’ longest visit to your work sector in our lifetime beginning just weeks after Jupiter has left your income sector and when there is a huge amount untapped income potential and momentum to exploit. By then Jupiter will have moved on, returning to your communication sector on 17th May to begin a massive year for all aspects of communication.
Starting the year with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your income sector is going to get this year off to a lucrative start, but with a lot of practice under your belt and a clear mandate from the start. While as you move into this new financial year Jupiter has only been here for 11 days, instead of a fresh start this was an opportunity for a do over after retrograding back out seven weeks earlier. Jupiter had already spent five months here last year and while he didn’t get far before turning retrograde, this was a valuable chance to test the waters, plant seeds and lay down tracks for future income growth and expansion. Jupiter knew he was coming back so this was all about setting things up for the future, a future that has now arrived. When Jupiter returned it wasn’t to take over from where he left off but to start over from the beginning again, travelling over ground already travelled twice before and with it a chance for a reset.
Until he leaves on 17th May, this time not to return until 2034, Jupiter will be working to make 2023 the biggest year for income growth and expansion in over a decade and while he won’t be here for the whole year the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior planet of the cosmos will stay on to keep the wheels turning. In that time Jupiter will have a lot of help, with some of the most potentially lucrative weeks of his time here likely to be when Venus moves through from 20th February to 17th March, bringing the planets of money and luck together here for the first time in over a decade. Mercury will lend his smart head for money when he moves through from 19th March to 4th April while it is during the Sun’s month long visit, from 21st March to 20th April that two New Moons will create even more momentum.
The first on 22nd March is an ordinary New Moon, able to create a new wave of momentum just as the Sun has turned the solar spotlight onto your income situation, matters and options. However the second, on 20th April is not only a solar eclipse but just weeks before Jupiter is due to leave on 17th May, bringing luck and fate into play as it works to act as a major trigger. Meanwhile, apart from a Full Moon in your financial sector on 6th April, there is no planetary activity on the other side of the financial fence, where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have until Mars returns on 28th April. This is the warrior planet’s first visit in two years, with a chance to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit as money matters get their first real attention this year. Mars will be here when the Sun moves through from 23rd October to 24th October, during which time Mercury will move through. It is Venus who will make a standalone visit from 8th November to 5th December, with the planet of money able to ensure no opportunity has been missed.
There is no major planetary activity on the romantic and relationship fronts that will keep things active all year. However, there is more than you would normally expect because Mars will visit both your romantic and relationship sectors for the first time in two years in 2023 and a Venus retrograde phase that will have no direct impact, will have an indirect impact on both. Normally there is a 24 day gap between Venus’ departure from your romantic sector and return to your relationship sector each year but instead, she will turn retrograde in that time and there will be a four month gap. This means that Venus will make a much earlier than expected return to your romantic sector, which will have exciting implications, while a delayed and late return to your relationship sector will keep the focus on your relationships much further into the year than is normally the case.
While there will be no planetary activity in your romantic sector until Mars returns on 26th March, three months before the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart each year, the spirit of romance will get an early boost. This is thanks to a Full Moon in your romantic sector on 7th January, the most romantically charged of 2023 and Venus, the planet of love’s return to Pisces from 27th January to 20th February. It is just over a month later that Mars will return for his first visit to your romantic sector in two years and held back by a retrograde phase he is ready to fire up your romantic passions and fighting spirit. Normally here for just six weeks, Mars still hasn’t built up to full speed after turning direct in January so will instead stay on for nearly two months, not leaving until 21st May.
This is when Venus’ early return to your romantic sector could be a game changer, returning on 8th May while Mars is still here, bringing the planets of love and passion together. When Venus leaves on 6th June this will leave your romantic sector empty until the Sun returns from 22nd June to 23rd July, during which time Mercury will also move through. Meanwhile, it is while the solar spotlight is still on matters of the heart that Mars will return to your relationship sector on 11th July, beginning his first visit in two years and the first planetary activity on the relationship front this year. Mars is here until 28th August, so will be here when Mercury returns on 29th July and the Sun on 23rd August. While the Sun will keep the solar spotlight on your relationships until 23rd September, a retrograde turn will keep Mercury, the planet of communication here until 5th October. This is when Venus’ late return will work to your advantage, with the planet of love returning for a standalone visit from 9th October to 8th November.
On face value, this is not only a typical professional year but with no continuous planetary activity in either of your two professional houses a fairly low key year. However, drill down and you will find that this is anything but low key, with two factors not only setting the year apart but in a way that is going to give both job and career matters a massive boost without having this hanging over you all year. There are two separate points in the year when job and career matters will be active, allowing you to focus on each in turn while there are two factors that will give this professional year the X factor. Those two factors are Mars and Venus, not only the two most charismatic planets in the solar system but planets that can not only make things happen but make them happen now. What makes this year significant is that Mars will be visiting both your work and career sectors for the first time in two years and Venus will turn retrograde this year.
Apart from a Full Moon on the job front on 6th February, there is no planetary activity on the work and job front other than the Moon’s monthly visits. However, that will change when Mars returns to your work sector on 21st May to begin his first visit in two years and what can be the busiest weeks of any year. Until leaving on 11th July Mars will fire up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit while creating the drive to make things happen. It is while Mars is here that Venus will return on 6th June for what is normally a 24 day visit, when as the planet of money, desire and attraction she will fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction.
Instead, a retrograde turn will keep Venus here until 9th October, for what will be her longest visit to your work sector in our lifetime. Mercury will move through from 11th July to 29th July and the Sun from 23rd July to 23rd August, but this is all about what Mars begins and what Venus will keep going for four incredible months. This is not what you would normally expect on the job front. Meanwhile, it is just over a month after Venus finally leaves your work sector on 9th October that Mercury will become the first planet to reach your career sector this year, returning on 10th November to begin what will be a period of continuous planetary activity that will run through to 23rd January 2024. In that time the Sun, Mars, Venus and Mercury will move through, ending this professional year and starting the next on a high.
