Spring Equinox 2023


Spring Equinox Greetings!


The Spring Equinox arrives on Monday, March 20, 2023 and signifies the moment when the light of day surpasses the dark of night. The increased sunlight brings greater aliveness to Mother Nature and greater activity to human spheres.


The 2023 Spring Equinox also coincides with a powerful New Moon in Aries on the "world axis" and is concurrent with major changes in the heavens that will reverberate for many years. Karmic Saturn has just moved from the mental air sign of Aquarius into the emotional water sign of Pisces on March 7, 2023, for the first time since 1996. This will bring a greater focus on spirituality and greater awareness of the immense power of your thoughts and feelings to create your reality.

Additionally, profoundly transformative Pluto will move from business-like Capricorn to idealistic Aquarius on March 23, 2023. This is the first time Pluto will be in Aquarius since 1798. Pluto in Aquarius will initiate revolutionary changes, many of which will be based on advanced communications technology and artificial intelligence--and the creative endeavors that arise from these technologies. Pluto will be in Aquarius until 2044. Pluto last traveled through Aquarius during the revolutionary years from 1778 to 1798. Pluto's sojourn in Aquarius in the 2020s to 2040s will shift the collective focus from material preoccupations with security to more erudite concepts of mental evolution, equality, and freedom. A testing of the foundations upon which our nations and our societies have been built will accompany this change in consciousness. Ultimately, we are moving to a more evolved way of living and being.  Read my 2023 Forecast 
for further details about powerful transits of Saturn & Pluto. 


Expansive and lucky Jupiter will move from the entrepreneurial fire sign of Aries into the environmentally-and-financially-oriented earth sign of Taurus in May 2023.  We will become more aware of the sustainability and stability (or instability and un-sustainability) of our natural environments and financial systems under this passage from May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024. New solutions will be born with this celestial power.



This astrological period also will bring a shift of focus onto the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink as we become more collectively concerned about the health of our environment. Pluto in the earth sign of Capricorn facilitated a concern with energy resources buried under the earth (fossil fuels) while Pluto in the air sign of Aquarius will shift the focus onto resources available (or not available) through clean air and water, symbolized by karmic Saturn in the watery sign of Pisces and Pluto in Aquarius, the Sign of the Water Bearer. We will see many new innovations powered by water, or simply by hydrogen or oxygen.



Finally, I would like to thank all of you who contributed to the heating and medical expenses of my friends in Italy. My friends feel blessed beyond measure for your generosity and feel deeply grateful for your assistance. They have continuously kept all of us in their prayers. If you would like to read more about their plight, please visit my website (scroll down to the photos of candles & terracotta pots) or feel free to contribute directly to them via moreno.cornelia73@gmail.comat

Please read on for more information about upcoming celestial transits and personal predictions for every sign!

Please also feel free to contact me at if I can be of assistance to you as you traverse the unfolding planetary changes. I am happy to help! 

Many, many blessings for love & light in the Spring season,

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Saturn in Pisces for the next 3 years means that you will be developing a rich inner life to counterbalance your busy outer life.

There is something you have been thinking about for many years that is now ready to manifest. Karmic Saturn in Pisces, from March 7, 2023 to 2026, will help you steer your actions to the right course. Make sure that you assess the facts of your situation realistically and then merge your intellectual knowledge with your intuition and your heartfelt feelings to arrive at the correct conclusion. A Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 20, 2023 along with lucky Jupiter in Aries until May 16, 2023 will help you connect with the right people who will support your good ideas.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
Your planetary ruler, Mercury, turns retrograde in the compatible earth sign of Taurus from April 21 to May 14, 2023.

Disciplined Saturn in your opposing sign of Pisces, starting on March 23, 2023 until February 2026, will help you choose to focus on the relationships that are important to you. People who are not aligned with your life purpose will naturally fall away. You will not have to take any precipitous actions.

Prepare to hit the ground running when the Spring Equinox arrives on March 20, 2023. The equal balance between day and night will provide a significant turning point for you, from which  to  create on a higher level. Transformational Pluto in the compatible air sign of Aquarius beginning on March 23, 2023-until 2044- will support you to create something from deep within your psyche, reaching to the profound level of your soul.

This will be the beginning of a new, uplifting chapter in your life. Spontaneity will replace rigid structures and diversity will supplant sameness. Many new doors will open for you! The transition of karmic Saturn from Aquarius to Pisces, from March 7, 2023 to 2026, will also help you express the romantic, artistic side of your nature. Sentiments that have been in your mind will suddenly come into physical manifestation under this celestial influence.

Disciplined Saturn, your planetary ruler, moves into the spiritual water sign of Pisces on March 7, 2023, for the first time since 1996. Saturn will remain in Pisces until 2026, where it will influence you to focus upon your spiritual wellbeing as a path to greater success.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
The Spring Season will focus your mind on areas of your life in need of refinement and renovation. You will have the opportunity to make changes in areas of your life that have not been operating as efficiently as you would like. It's an excellent time to streamline and focus on what is truly important to you. Transformational Pluto in Aquarius, beginning on March 23, 2023-until 2044-will help you get in touch with a profound level of your consciousness. You have easier access to the energy of your soul than most any other sign of the zodiac. Use your free time to engage in contemplation, creative writing or artistry, being by water, spiritual practice, and meditation. Any of these activities-and others that you are familiar with-will help you get even closer to the calm and soothing energy of your soul. The Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 20, 2023 will divert your financial resources from a planned objective to another priority. A Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 5, 2024 will help you reach a previously planned destination from a different direction than originally planned. The new route has much to reveal.
