Winter Solstice 2023


NEW YEAR OF 2023! 

Be ready to receive the increasing light of the Sun and celebrate its illumination when the Winter Solstice arrives on Wednesday, December 21st!  As the days become longer during the holiday season, you will gain the energy to implement the positive plans you are now imagining. Use this spiritually surcharged season to visualize greater peace, harmony, healing, and wisdom around the world. See yourself feeling happy, calm, healthy, and peaceful. Use prayer, affirmations, visualization, and meditation, to support your positive goals for the coming year.

As you will read in this newsletter, we are entering a time of unprecedented growth, change, and evolution. This is because Pluto, which rules collective awareness, is moving into the innovative, free-thinking air sign of Aquarius on March 23, 2023. Pluto has been in the tradition-based, deliberative, hierarchical, and slower-moving earth sign of Capricorn since 2008. Aquarian ideals, on the other hand, are egalitarian, humanitarian, and inclusive. Your thoughts will increasingly attract what you need and create what you want under the influence of the fast-paced, mentally-oriented energy of Aquarius. 


The shift of Pluto into Aquarius will open your mind to many new, refreshing possibilities. The mentally-oriented energy of Aquarius also will quicken your brainwaves, which will enable you to manifest what you imagine ever more quickly. Your thinking will become non-linear as you increasingly see the world in a spherical, holistic, holographic, even 4th- or 5th-dimensional way. From this new perspective, much creative and innovative activity will emerge. Infinite portals to new potentials will open to you and you will find yourself thinking thoughts you never before considered possible!



Pluto was last in Aquarius from 1778 to 1798, when the U.S. Constitution was ratified, during the French Revolution and at the start of the Industrial Revolution. A  powerful paradigm shift for the whole planet will be initiated in 2023. This includes a redistribution of power from monolithic governments to individual communities, testing many of the democratic principles recognized more than 200 years ago. Pluto will remain in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius until 2044. As a result, old "tried-and-true" methods will not seem so true. You will reach higher and dig deeper to find truth-of yourself and the world around you. You may even feel as if pieces of yourself will be taken apart as you reassemble them in a new-and better-way.

Globally, the changes will come in the form of new technologies that will change the cadence of your life. New modes of communication and transportation will more closely connect you with people around the world. New financial mechanisms will open avenues for you to conduct commerce and will fuel small businesses that will fill the needs of your local community. Other new and revolutionary businesses will emerge that will have global reach. You will see the failing of old, corporate businesses and buildings. There also will be a melting of national boundaries and a series of rapidly changing governmental leaders, who will represent a revolving door of ideologies that reflect the world's struggle between traditional hierarchical power (Capricorn) and fast-moving, flexible, and freer frameworks (Aquarius). Aquarius responds to the needs and thought currents of the moment while Capricorn builds strength by remaining firm. You will learn to quickly adapt to changing circumstances engendered by the power of Pluto in Aquarius. The quick-moving planetary energies also will shape your perceptions of reality-and reality itself. 

Sign of Aquarius

Power, gradually-and eventually, not so gradually-will be redistributed to those who have not previously held power. Initially, there will be confusion about which "law" to follow-the old or the new. This will lead to a periodic sense of anarchy as people will make their own rules to fit their circumstances. Ultimately, power will irrevocably move to the people-along with all of the disruption this may engender. Still, it is a necessary step in our global evolution, which involves growing individual responsibility. 

These changes already are "in the air" because the Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction on the Winter Solstice of 2020 (the Christmas star) was in the air sign of Aquarius. The once-every-20-year conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn set the tone for the world for the next 20 years. The era-molding Jupiter-Saturn conjunction landed in the mentally-based air sign of Aquarius in 2020 for the first time since 1405. Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions will continue to be in air signs for the next 400 years (as opposed to earth signs, where Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions have occurred for the past 600 years). The movement of Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions, which occur every 20 years on the even-numbered decade (i.e. 1980, 2000, 2020, 2040), from earth signs to air signs, will further fuel the transition to an energetically lighter world, one that is more accommodating to the creative power of your thoughts. Mental power is related to air signs; in contrast, material progress, much of which we have seen in the last 600 years, is related to earth signs.

Jupiter-Saturn Conjunction

During the upcoming years, you will have choices between many new possibilities-many of which will be generated from within your own mind and from the spiritual energies you allow to flow through you. In this time of change, it will be wise to re-evaluate your fixed habits of thought and consequent patterns of behavior. Which of your thoughts and actions are serving you? Which are not? Which would you like to continue? Which would you like to discard? Does what you're doing and thinking matter? To whom? The energy is available to create anew. What would you like to bring into your life for yourself versus what would you like to create for others? Or for the world? The power of your thoughts to determine your new trajectory is at a zenith at this time.

Telepathic Communication

If you don't know yet which direction to take with the new energies that will become available, pray for images, guidance, and spiritual assistance as the future unfolds. Ideally, your thoughts will be attuned to the energy of your own soul and the Divine. You can even pray for this attunement! Abundant celestial energies are available to assist you. You simply need to open the channel for the spiritual power to flow! Even if you don't know what to pray for-pray for the highest good for all and for the highest quality of love and light to come to you, through you, and to be available for all.

I realize my newsletters since 2012 (the year predicted by the Mayan calendar as the end of time) have focused on the dismantling of the world as we have known it. A decade has passed since 2012, and enough of our former reality has been dismantled to make space for the new ideas that will usher in a freer, more creative, and more thought-based reality. Please be aware that there still will be periods where old systems of control will vehemently assert themselves. Ultimately, however, we are moving toward a time of greater individual autonomy-and responsibility. Previous limitations will start falling away under the influence of Pluto in Aquarius in 2023-2024 and new lifestyles will continue to evolve even faster, beginning in 2026, due to the consciousness-raising planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto transitioning out of the slower-moving, more conservative earth and water signs of Taurus, Pisces, and Capricorn (respectively) into the faster-moving fire and air signs of Gemini, Aries, and Aquarius. Karmic Saturn also will move from the air sign of Aquarius (2020-2023) to the water sign of Pisces (2023-2026) into the fire sign of Aries in 2026. We are creating the foundation now for even more dramatic, fiery changes from 2026 onward. The multi-year process will give you many opportunities to experiment with new ideas and activities!


Ultimately, don't be afraid of change, but be afraid of not changing under the growth opportunities presented by the planetary energies of 2023 and beyond.

Here are explanations and historical context for the coming planetary alignments of 2023: (Or scroll down to read your personalized predictions for every sign)


1) Pluto will move into Aquarius on March 23, 2023, for the first time since 1798. 

Pluto last traveled through Aquarius from 1778 to 1798, when the U.S. Constitution was ratified, during the French Revolution and the Industrial Revolution. A  powerful paradigm shift for the whole planet will be initiated in 2023. This includes a redistribution of power from monolithic government to groups of individuals who will form cooperative communities that support each other. 

Ultimately, Pluto in Aquarius will bring greater support for humanitarian and egalitarian ideals, but also will un-earth forces that have been working to counter to these democratic ideals.  Power struggles over who controls the air waves and sources of information will continue and intensify. Issues of the limits of censorship will be front & center. Furthermore, rather than physical wars, we will, unfortunately, see more "info wars," where who controls the airwaves may well control the hearts and minds of some sectors of humanity. 

The Pluto-in-Aquarius period also will feature a rapidly accelerating pace of technological evolution and an increasing use of artificial intelligence to perform everyday tasks. The line between "human" and "trans-human" will blur under the over-use of artificial intelligence.  We also will see a greater electrification of the planet that will bring higher speeds of communication that may outpace the human mind's ability to keep pace. As wifi and electronic signals move faster and faster, we will see concomitant interruptions in these signals-as if Mother Nature is asking that technological developments work in harmony with the vibrations of humanity and the earth. 

We also will see language change to be more streamlined, efficient, and visually oriented (pictures rather than letters) to express more complex ideas. We already are seeing so much information being communicated via emojis and videos. Also, witness people spending thousands, if not millions, of dollars to purchase one-of-a-kind non-fungible tokens (NFT's) that are merely electronic pictures that can serve as a form of currency. Of course, these pictures often are more attractive than the dollar bill or euro, so who's to judge? These images well could turn into the currency of the future along with various iterations of the cryptocurrencies currently available.


2) Saturn will move into Pisces on March 7, 2023, for the first time since 1996. 

Saturn will travel through Pisces from March 7, 2023 to February 13, 2026. Saturn was last in Pisces from 1994 to 1996. Even though the power of prayer is well-known, the power of prayer and positive thoughts was first documented in studies and recognized in the mainstream media during the period from 1994-1996. Concurrently, your thoughts, dreams, and visions will more easily manifest under the influence of Saturn in Pisces. The intangible easily becomes tangible under the influence of concrete Saturn in the numinous and other-worldly water sign of Pisces. Energy healing, telepathy, healing with light and sound, and even astrology will thrive under Saturn in Pisces. Think about where you would like to be in the future and know that you will silently be propelled forward under Saturn in Pisces. Spiritual practice also will bring you many benefits under this celestial influence. 

Saturn was last in Pisces (prior to 1994 to 1996), from 1964 to 1967, and from 1935 to 1938. Saturn in Pisces enables spiritual ideas to envelop large groups of people as personal boundaries weaken and people feel connected to something greater than themselves. National and international boundaries also will tend to erode under Saturn in Pisces-which may cause a backlash by governments trying to exert control-by solidifying borders and instituting border patrols and electronic monitoring of borders, and increased regulations and controls over who enters which nation, as witnessed during the pandemic. 

Still, diverse people and ideas will come together more easily. under Saturn in Pisces. In the United States, we already are seeing the melting of ideological boundaries as lifelong Democrats embrace some Republican ideals and Republicans are crossing the aisle to side with traditional Democratic ideals, such as gun control. It may not be uncommon to see politicians switching parties at this time. The same will be happening across the globe as Saturn in Pisces brings a blending of ideas. We already have a growing libertarian movement that  is considered both far left and far right. Its principles of free markets, individual liberties, and body autonomy embrace concepts espoused by both the right and the left. Other such movements will be emerging in the coming years. 


3) Jupiter will enter Taurus on May 16, 2023, for the first time since 2012. 

Jupiter will be in Taurus until May 25, 2024, where it will focus our minds on economic and financial change as well as innovative approaches to the environment and gardening. We may see a near maxxing-out of the electrical grid under Jupiter in Taurus, as Planet Earth can no longer sustain its electrification. Interruptions in wifi or the electrical grid will cause all of us to find new and more natural ways of living and communicating-possibly using the power of telepathy and brain waves rather than physical devices and man-made electronic waves. Soothing waves of divine compassion and heart-centered communication will eventually supplant frenetic texting and other forms of electronic communication. Nonetheless, financially, we will see a greater adoption of digital currencies, cryptocurrencies, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to gradually replace traditional paper currencies.

Solar Eclipse

4) A series of eclipses that have not occurred since 2004 also will bring new creative energy on April 19, May 5, October 14 & 28, 2023. 

These eclipses will bring energy for starting new and creative businesses, for developing new financial systems, and for discovering more of what has been hidden under the surface in need of reform. The divisiveness we've witnessed between left & right, red & blue, etc., will break through to more unity and coherence as we re-create our world in the coming years on a more conscious and evolved level. We are about to reach a maximum state of polarity. It is a law of physics that opposites eventually turn into each other. What happens when ideas go too far right? They become left. And when they go too far left? They become right. The powerful eclipses of 2023 (dates listed above) will continue to cause unexpected reversals to show us the flip side of what we previously perceived as reality. 

Finally, in transformative times such as we are in, there is no substitute for the power of prayer and positive thinking to ameliorate your journey. It will be important in the coming years to not only harness the power of your thoughts, but to fortify and strengthen your thoughts by attuning them to the energy of your soul and the Divine through meditation and prayer. This will lead to more creativity than you previously imagined.

Many blessings for a very happy holiday season and a blessed 2023 filled with much love, happiness, good health, peace, and upward evolution!

Love & Light, 


P.S. Thank you to many of you for asking me about my friends in Italy during this difficult period that the European community is facing due to the war in Ukraine. The cost of living in Italy has increased considerably: from fuel for cars and for heating homes, to electricity, to food products. To cope with the stress this situation has put on their finances, my friends have had to cut back on groceries, limit the use of their car, and heat their homes for a maximum of 3-4 hours per day despite cold temperatures. Having lived in Italy in the winter of 2001, I was astonished by how expensive it already was in those years to heat my small apartment. To save on expenses as much as possible, my friends have built small stoves using terracotta flower pots over tea lights, which allow them to add some warmth to their home (see photos). If you feel guided to offer them a little help to make Cornelia and Moreno's time less difficult, this is their PayPal account: It is possible to send both dollars and euros labeled as a "gift".

They are very spiritual people who will pray for all those of you who communicate your names in your PayPal message. And whomever includes their email address will receive a thank you note from them in Italian and English and an electronic photo of Florence at Christmastime. Moreno and Cornelia thank you in advance for your generosity and kindly express their gratitude!

Moreno & Cornelia's heating:

Thank you so much for your loving kindness!

This is because you are becoming aware of higher dimensions of thought and perceptions under this celestial influence. Diverse people and ideas will come together more easily under Saturn in Pisces. Spiritual ideas take hold more quickly as personal, national, and international boundaries weaken-and even melt away-as people feel connected to something greater than themselves.

The candidate who is elected under Pluto in Capricorn will likely change his tune to be more expansive, humanitarian, and democratic due to popular demands under the pervasive influence of Pluto in Aquarius.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
With Mars, your planetary ruler, retrograde in Gemini until January 12, 2023, you may feel your plans are unfolding less quickly than you would like. This is a good moment to practice patience until people and situations naturally align in your favor. Watch tangled situations become untangled as the winter season progresses. Lucky Jupiter in Aries until May 16, 2023 will support your positive energy and accomplishments. A New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in the last degree of Aries on April 20, 2023 could derail an expected plan. But something better will come to take its place. Think back to 2004, the last time this solar eclipse occurred, and reflect upon the issues involved. A similar issue will be resolved on a higher level in 2023. Jupiter in Taurus beginning on May 16, 2023 will enable you to focus on your financial wellbeing-this is an excellent opportunity to enhance your financial health by gathering resources, stockpiling materials, or re-examining your budget. Venus retrograde in the compatible fire sign of Leo from August 23  to September 3, 2023 will bring an acquaintance from the past back into your life. The reconnection has the potential to be quite pleasant. A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra on October 14, 2023 will bring new emotional influences into your life. Welcome new people into your life because they will have something important to show you.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
Lucky Jupiter enters Taurus on May 16, 2023, bringing a peaceful, calming, stable feeling to your world. You will feel you can finally relax and smell the roses after a potentially tumultuous start to the year of 2023. With a series of eclipses in Taurus and your opposing sign of Scorpio back in 2022, followed by a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 5, 2023, combined with Mercury retrograde in Taurus from April 21 to May 14, 2023, you have certainly dealt with your fair share of unexpected changes. Jupiter in Taurus until May 25, 2024 will be a calming influence in your daily life. Saturn in Pisces from March 7, 2023 until 2026 will also help you refine your interpersonal interactions and focus on the friendships that are most important to you. Pluto in Aquarius from March 23 to June 11, 2023 will help you see life from a deeper perspective. You will have the potential to get in touch with latent power within yourself. Venus retrograde in Leo from August 23 to September 3, 2023 will help you resolve a conflict in a relationship from the past. Each party took a hard line, but time and experience have softened each of your views. A warming rapprochement is possible. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 28, 2023 will open your mind to a new relationship or a new way of relating.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 21) 
You will feel a burst of energy after energetic Mars in Gemini completes its retrograde cycle on January 12, 2023. You will feel doubly blessed when communicative Mercury, your planetary ruler, in Capricorn completes its retrograde cycle on January 18, 2023. You certainly will be getting the new year of 2023 off to a good start with these astrological transits! Focus on connecting with like-minded people under the positive influence of lucky Jupiter in Aries until May 16, 2023. After this time, you will be more inclined to keep your own counsel. Saturn in Pisces beginning on March 7, 2023 will bring a serious note to a work situation. Pluto in Aquarius from  March 23 to June 11, 2023 will help you discover a new place to explore or a new subject to study. Mercury retrograde in Taurus from April 21 to May 14, 2023 will give you a chance to relax, renew, and review. A series of eclipses on April 21 and May 5, 2023 will awaken a memory that will impart wisdom that you can apply in your everyday life. Another series of eclipses on October 14 and 28, 2023 will awaken your creativity. Mercury, your planetary ruler, retrogrades again from August 23 to September 15, and then once again from December 13, 2023 to January 1, 2024. The retrogrades of Mercury will enable you to savor your past during the late summer and holiday season. These are times when you can build upon solid foundations you have already established.

CANCER (June 22 - July 22)
Dynamic Mars will give you an energetic boost when it travels through the Sign of Cancer from March 25 to May 20, 2023. The powerful and supportive energy continues for you as Venus joins the celestial line-up in Cancer from May 7 to June 5, 2023; the Sun travels through Cancer from June 21 to July 22; and Mercury travels through Cancer from June 26 to July 11, 2023. March to July will be the time to start new projects and make your soothing, nurturing influence felt. Two series of eclipses in 2023 also will bring interesting new people or circumstances into your life. A New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in the last degree of Aries on April 20, 2023 could raise an issue you last dealt with in 2004. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 5, 2023 will show you a new way to accomplish a domestic task. Lucky Jupiter in Taurus from May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024 will bring greater stability to your social context, as well as your personal, familial, and financial affairs. A New Moon Annular Solar Eclipse on October 14, 2023 will temporarily stir some emotions among family and friends, but the disturbance will be quickly quelled. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on October 28, 2023 will bring discordant energies back into harmony. Mercury retrograde from December 13, 2023 to January 1, 2024 will bring someone from your past back into your life. There may be a work association or project that brings you greater clarity about your life direction. 

LEO (July 23 - August 22)
Lucky Jupiter in the compatible fire sign of Aries from December 20, 2022 (on the eve of the Winter Solstice) until May 16, 2023, will help you meet new people, start a new business, discover a new favorite place, or explore a new topic. These discoveries will help you embark upon a new trajectory in your life. Your power and energy will be further uplifted by the passage of energetic Mars through Leo from May 20 to July 10, 2023. Your energy will be strong at this time. Loving Venus will join the celestial line-up in Leo from June 5 to October 8, 2023. This will put the accent on love for you. Venus normally spends only one month in each sign of the zodiac. But the love planet will spend a full 4 months in the Sign of the Lion because of its once-every-18-month retrograde (July 22 to September 3, 2023-when the love planet moves backward from the perspective of earth for approximately 40 days). During the retrograde of Venus in Leo, you can expect loved ones from your past to return to your life. You also will have a chance to resolve any unresolved issues or misunderstandings. Venus in Leo for 4+ months (June 5 - October 8, 2023) also will stimulate your creativity, which will be further highlighted by the passage of communicative Mercury through Leo from July 11 to 28, 2023, and the Sun in Leo from July 22 to August 23, 2023. The solar and lunar eclipses on April 20, May 5, October 14 and 28, 2023 will lead you to a new opportunity. Stay aware of new directions presented to you-and evaluate carefully.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
Your new year will get off to an energetic start when Mars in Gemini completes its retrograde cycle on January 12, 2023 and communicative Mercury, your planetary ruler, completes its retrograde in the compatible earth sign of Capricorn on January 18, 2023. From this time going forward, you will quickly get new endeavors off the ground and efficiently put your ongoing projects in order. Energetic Mars will further support your progress when it travels through Virgo from July 10 to August 23, 2023. Use the Mercury retrograde period from April 21 to May 14, 2023 to prepare for the future by metaphorically putting your ducks in a row. A New Moon Solar Eclipse on April 20, 2023 may cause an annoying delay, but you will be able to break through any barriers it causes by the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 5, 2023, combined with the completion of Mercury retrograde on May 14, 2023, your ideas will prevail. Be patient if circumstances don't align right away-they will slowly fall into place throughout the spring season due to the positive support of lucky Jupiter in the compatible earth sign of Taurus from May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024. Another Mercury retrograde, this time in Virgo and Leo, from August 23 to September 3, 2023, will help you implement an idea you have been contemplating for a long time. This will give you a chance to reevaluate your life direction and to make course corrections. Loving Venus in Virgo from October 8 to November 8, 2023 will further enhance your journey and help you magnetize supportive people to the endeavors you believe in!

LIBRA (September 23 - October 23)
Lucky Jupiter in your opposing sign of Aries from December 20, 2022 (on the eve of the Winter Solstice) to May 16, 2023, will bring many fortunate people into your life. This will be a beneficial time to focus on enhancing the healthy and positive relationships in your life. Jupiter in the Venus-ruled sign of Taurus from May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024 will further assist your efforts to solidify committed and positive interpersonal connections in your life. A New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 20, 2023 will open a new path for your creative expression. You will take steps toward realization of an impromptu project after the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on May 5, 2023. Loving Venus, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde in Leo from July 22 to September 3, 2023. This will be a time to review past relationships and determine if there are any areas you would like to refine or outstanding issues you would like to resolve. If so, this is the correct timing for a heartfelt discussion with a loved one. If it is a new issue, however, it is best to wait until Venus retrograde has completed on September 3, 2023. Loving Venus will remain in Leo until October 8, 2023, so you will have plenty of opportunities for creative interactions! Energetic Mars in Libra will bolster your energy and ambition from August 27 to October 11, 2023. During this time, you also will have the support of the Sun in Libra from September 23 to October 23, 2023. And communicative Mercury will in Libra will support you to express yourself from October 4 to 22, 2023. A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra on October 14, 2023 will potentially disrupt a plan, but a better plan will take its place. All will be back on track after the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on October 28, 2023. Venus, your planetary ruler, will support you to maintain your balance as it travels through Libra from November 8 to December 4, 2023.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 21)
Powerful Pluto, your planetary ruler, moves into Aquarius on March 23, 2023, for the first time since the transformative planet traveled through Aquarius from 1778 to 1798. This was a time when the U.S. Constitution was ratified, the French Revolution began, and the Industrial Revolution started as well. Not only will Pluto in Aquarius usher in a paradigm shift for you-it will be a paradigm shift for the whole planet! Pluto rules the deep subconscious, which actually exerts a strong magnetic pull on everyone's personalities-especially if you are a Scorpio-because you have greater energetic access to deep strata of your powerful subconsciousness than most people. Pluto in Capricorn from 2008 to March 23, 2023 has been responsible for the breakdown of many governmental, corporate, and financial structures that we had come to rely upon-and thought would never change. With the advent of Pluto in Aquarius, we will begin see more of the new systems that will better support the world we are moving into. This new world will be more humanitarian, egalitarian, and more technologically advanced due to the technological orientation of Aquarius. In your own life, this may mean  a more streamlined approach to your daily life as the result of greater interface with technology. As a result, you may feel a little more removed from the physical hustle and bustle of this world and more in touch with your own mental activity. A series of eclipses in Scorpio and your opposing sign of Taurus in 2022 and again in 2023 has begun to dislodge old patterns, relationships, and lifestyles. In 2023, you will be ready for a whole new beginning!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
Lucky Jupiter, your planetary ruler, is in the compatible fire sign of Aries from December 20, 2022 (on the eve of the Winter Solstice) until May 16, 2023. This will support your ability to put your higher ideals and creative projects into action. You love to study and learn, and share what you have gathered with others. Your intention is to make the world a better place for everyone. You will have an opportunity to make a positive contribution in an innovative way under the influence of Jupiter in Aries during the first half of this year. Your attention then will be focused on taking concrete steps to secure your own foundations as Jupiter moves into the security-oriented earth sign of Taurus from May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024. Dynamic Mars in your opposing sign of Gemini until March 25, 2023 will bring interesting and energetic people into your life. Make sure to listen to their point of view for greater harmony. A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 20, 2023 will reawaken an idea you last considered as long ago as 2004. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 5, 2023 will bring an important insight through a dream and focus your attention on elements of your subconscious that are ready to come to your awareness. A New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra on October 14, 2023 will help you to see an old friend in a new light. And a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on October 28, 2023 will help you improve your dietary regimen and help you ascend the ladder of your personal evolution!

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
Your planetary ruler, karmic Saturn, will prompt you to focus on your spiritual practice during the coming year. It also will emphasize your spontaneous flow and adaptability in changing circumstances. This influence will begin most strongly when Saturn enters the Sign of Pisces on March 7, 2023, where Saturn will remain until 2026. Think back to 1994 to 1996, when Saturn was last in Pisces, to get an idea of the issues you may be facing from 2023 to 2026. You inevitably will be resolving these issues on a higher level-one that reflects your current level of evolution and higher state of your consciousness. If you were alive in the 1960s, Saturn was in the Sign of Pisces from 1964 to 1967. This was a period of striving for expanded freedoms and free thinking. You will have a similar opportunity this year to expand your thinking and espouse ideologies you previously considered "out-of-bounds." This is a time to try new things, including new and more open attitudes and approaches to life. You will feel more alive and part of the greater flow as you experiment with more expanded ways of being. Transformative Pluto also will be leaving the Sign of Capricorn, where it has been since 2008, to enter the Sign of Aquarius, from March 23 to June 11, 2023. This will relieve some of the pressure that has been on you to discover and confront hidden aspects of the world around you. You will have an opportunity to uncover and heal any remaining issues when Pluto retrogrades back into Capricorn from June 11, 2023 to January 20, 2024, and when transformative Pluto has its final stay in Capricorn (for the next 248 years) from September 1 to November 19, 2024.  Combined with lucky Jupiter in Aries until May 16, 2023 and Jupiter in the compatible earth sign of Taurus until May 25, 2024, you will be able to integrate the many changes that have visited your life since Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008. You are now entering a calmer, more flowing period of your life!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
Transformative Pluto in Aquarius from March 23, 2023 to June 11, 2023 will shine the spotlight on you! Your egalitarian and humanitarian ideas will begin to take root in the collective consciousness under this celestial influence. This will open the way for your greater participation in and impact upon society. People will listen to you-and deeply value your input! Pluto was last in Aquarius from 1778-1798, when the U.S. Constitution was ratified, during the French Revolution, and when the Industrial Revolution began. You have similarly revolutionary ideas bubbling up in your mind. This is the year to begin to manifest your ideas as people will be ready to support your forward-thinking concepts. Pluto, which rules mass consciousness, will retrograde back into Capricorn, where it has been since 2008, from June 11, 2023 to January 20, 2024, and from September 1 to November 19, 2024. Otherwise, potent Pluto will be in Aquarius until 2044! This is the time to hit your stride! Also note that a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 5, 2023 will disrupt a previously planned activity to show you a better solution. A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on October 28, 2023 will bring a new influence into your home. You may either renovate a part of your dwelling, move objects in significant ways, or choose a new dwelling altogether.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
Karmic Saturn in Pisces from March 7, 2023 to February 13, 2026, will highlight the importance of flexibility in your worldly affairs and deep concentration in your spiritual affairs. Saturn represents structure and Pisces represents flow. So, this will be a time for you to master the art of gracefully flowing within traditionally proscribed boundaries. You will have plenty of time to practice this flowing quality that you are so good at, as Saturn will remain in Pisces for nearly 3 years. Think back to 1994-1996, when Saturn was last in Pisces, to get an idea of the flavor of the next few years for you. These were the years when people began to become aware of the power of their thoughts to sculpt their reality. The power of prayer was first documented and publicized in the mainstream media. You will have similar abilities to prove the power of your thoughts in 2023-2026. Saturn also was in Pisces from 1964 to 1967, which was a time of free thinking and relating. Saturn in Pisces will give you an opportunity to discover where you fall on the spectrum of rules versus freedoms-how much of each are you comfortable with? Loving Venus in Pisces from January 26 to February 20, 2023 will enhance your relationships; the Sun in Pisces from February 18 to March 20, 2023 will strengthen your will; and Mercury in Pisces from March 2 to 18, 2023 will help you articulate your goals. These celestial transits also will heighten your sensitivity and perceptive powers. Trust your intuition in general, and especially during these periods, when celestial energies will give you additional support. The Pisces Full Moon on August 31, 2023 is another powerful time for you, when you will be able to manifest ideas you contemplated during the first half of 2023!
