Another challenging calendar year is about to end and a brand-new awaits us.
For the first time since the 00’s we will get a year without major, long lasting aspects.
Instead, we get to experience some significant sign changes, though.
The area probably occupying most people’s mind right now; economy, inflation, prices and huge bills will continue to be a prominent topic in 2023.
Pluto will spend 9,5 months of the year in the very last degrees of Capricorn, meaning we could see more scarcity, lacks, decrease in living standards and poverty, before it turns around.
Likewise, unemployment could rise significantly.
Some societal pillars could also end up breaking completely down.
We will also continue to have a few Eclipses on the Taurus/Scorpio axis, which also highlights changes in economy, energy sources, food supply, other basic resources and our living standards.
Jupiter enters Taurus in May, which could potentially bring economic growth and abundance.
BUT the criteria for that, will be an economy based on concrete, solid, durable, usable values. Not something our current economic system can live up to, which is why we are in trouble.
Which we also were the last time Jupiter transited Taurus, in 2011, when the debt crisis, took over from the financial crisis. Back then we saw countries on the brink of bankruptcy, stock markets crashing and panic – and as we all know the worlds debt has only risen by insane measures since then…
But like I said, there IS room for growth and expansion, since Jupiter is the planet representing exactly that, but it will have to involve a sound restructuring. Maybe we will get that - or we will have to create it ourselves.
A major boom in growing our own food – self supplying from nature’s abundance – starting in Spring 2023 is also likely – and very wise – with Jupiter in Taurus.
It could very well be that it is not only because it’s fun and healthy but also necessary, at least as a supplement.
TRANSITION; THE ZEITGEIST BEGINS TO CHANGE
A couple of days after the Spring Equinox in March, Pluto enters Aquarius for the first time, it will stay in the sign a couple of months, then return to Capricorn in June and stay there until January 2024.
2023 is thus a transition period.
It’s usually quite a shock to most when Pluto changes signs. Pluto has a very strong grip on the masses, since it’s one of the primary representatives of the zeitgeist of any given time and at the same time rules mass psychology.
Towards the last part of a transit through a sign, like now, in Capricorn (where Pluto has resided since 2008), Pluto collectively takes us COMPLETELY out in the extremes of what that sign represents, before we “suddenly” hit a wall and a significant and transformative energy shift takes place and a new counter trend sets in, here in the form of the Aquarius energy.
Many will have identified so completely with the way of life or the narrative of the previous period and won’t be able to just shake it off, when the energy and the zeitgeist suddenly shifts and can become quite lost for some time.
Some will probably also feel misguided and even deceived - since Pluto often takes us through some very dark corners on its way – and as a result could end up in deep trouble, which will take time and energy to untangle from.
As an individual you can make things a bit easier for yourself, by already starting now to prepare mentally for a giant shift coming up, now that you have been made aware of it.
If you have a high belief and trust in authorities, this shift could be particularly challenging for you. There are some ties and beliefs you will undoubtedly have to let go of – and the sooner the better, for your own sake and well being. So don’t cling on, just for the sake of clinging on.
There will of course, also be some future way showers, that are already “lined up” and impatiently ready to sprint into the new times and energy.
I’m guessing that quite a few of you reading this, will be in that category. Astrology is after all an Aquarian discipline 😊
At any given time, there will always be those going against the current, that have other values than the masses and the prevailing zeitgeist. Those who doesn’t just blindly follow the pendulum swing of Pluto out in the absolute extremes, (which will usually increasingly set in during the last 10 degrees of a sign; latest happening from 2018 – 2023). Some will on top of that also have a natural connection to the following sign, here Aquarius, and its qualities and perhaps already live parts of their lives from those values – and will thus have the experience to be act as true, sound representatives and positive role models and way showers.
(This doesn’t in anyway just refer to people born with the Sun in Aquarius but goes for all who have other important placements in the sign as well or in the corresponding 11th house or have significant connections between the ruler Uranus and their personal planets – so for that matter it could just as well be a Capricorn).
The strong influx of new energy coming in, concurrent with Pluto changing signs in 2023 & ’24, will consist of awakening, freedom, truth, freethinking, rebellion, uprising, perhaps even revolution. Equal rights for all, but equality with room for differences and originality. A more flat structure, without top management. Community based on like minds and interests. Alternative methods and ways of life. Apart from that, there will also be focus on anything residing in the heavens or in space, as well as on technology and free energy.
It is, however, important to remember, that it is only 2,5 month of 2023 that Pluto will actually be in Aquarius.
So, it probably won’t all just take off in 2023, since we are not finished with dealing with the Pluto in Capricorn transit. But some important steps can be taken, that wasn’t possible before.
For those eagerly awaiting this shift, you can use the temporary influx of Aquarian energy to get your self filled up and ready to completely roll in 2024 and it can also bring a push to things you might already be doing or are planning on doing, that are Aquarian in nature.
It can also become easier to get an overview of things, since another temporary energy can bring some distance and clarity to the current issues and mess.
Finally, and importantly, the energy influx can be used as strength and backup for holding on to freedom and truth, no matter what.
Because this transition phase will inevitably cause anxiety among a certain crowd and their desperation might become bigger than it already has been – and thus potentially also more dangerous…
Because when we get to the end of Pluto’s stay in Capricorn it will become irrefutably clear how low classic Capricorn representatives such as state, government, authorities, big business and “the top of society” truly was willing to sink – and their grip on power will wane.
That’s what the Plutonian energy does; it clarifies and exposes the darkness, the corruption, the abuse of power and the no longer sustainable, in order for us to be able to clean it out or remove our energy from it. Then Pluto introduces a counter measure, this time in the form of the Aquarius energy, that as previously mentioned represent freedom for humanity and a flat structure, where all are equal, but different.
For power-hungry beings, who would like to stay in control, keep on top managing, skimming the cream, sucking of other people’s energy, this is of course no less than a nightmare.
Which is why some among them might feel tempted to quickly install a system to try to prevent us from ever reaching that point.
Since the ”rules” of this world are that everything has to happen within the framework of the at any given time prevailing energies, it would be quite obvious to use a twisted version of Aquarius’ relation to technology, the internet and anything digital – and in that way try to implement a tyrannical digital surveillance system, taking the last part of freedom from people, BEFORE the new energy has rushed so much in, that a large part of humanity will break free from the chains and won’t ever be caught again – meaning, it will have to be implemented during 2023.
If all else fails “ a threat from outer space” could of course also be an obvious distraction, with Pluto in Aquarius 😉
Even though freedom cannot be kept down forever, during Pluto’s 20 year long transit through Aquarius, we REALLY DON’T need any more problems, we have to untangle ourselves from afterwards, after all the mess that we collectively have been caught up in, the past few years.
So, let’s not, shall we, just ride along with something, that might sound convenient here and now, but instead stop and think things and implications through.
Be particularly wary of anything presented as the ONLY solution, without any alternative options. There will ALWAYS be alternatives under the influence of pure Aquarius energy.
Whether we are talking digital programable currencies as the only payment option, digital ID’s as the only way of identifying yourself. Social credit scores as the only way to distribute resources etc.
And of course, be extremely wary of letting unknown technology enter your body.
Whatever might come of technological wonders or monsters, the coming years, there will always have to be a free choice whether anyone wants to make use of it or not – just as there should always be room for alternative options.
If we in 2023 manages to hold on to a true free choice and alternative options, things cannot go completely wrong.
DOES THIS HOLD WATER? TEST OF THE SPIRITUAL WORLD
Saturn also changes signs in March, when it leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces.
This put a focus on the entire spiritual world – and what here can either sustain or will break under Saturn’s testing reality check.
Anything not holding water, anything that doesn’t have real substance behind it, does not stand good chances the coming years.
A test and a clean up in various spiritual figures, influencers, “gurus” and “saviours” and their messages will happen.
The same goes for various artists, by the way.
Disillusion among followers might occur, but will in that case be a healthy and necessary process in order to determine who and what deserves your energy and attention going forward.
A new saviour of some kind could also manifest. Whether a self-proclaimed Messiah or something, a system or other, that is presented as something that will save us all from the situation we’re in.
You can be sure, that if all is just to be let up to this other/others - or again is presented as the only solution - it is NOT for our benefit.
The Saturnian energy always demands that we take responsibility for ourselves and make an effort. So, in case of outer help or salvation of any kind, something will definitely be required of you too, if there’s actually something to it or this could literally mean, that we will have to save ourselves.
Just like Aquarius represents alternatives, Pisces represents multiple options.
Even though there might be the only right solution for you, it doesn’t mean that it applies for all else too. Keep all of this in mind next year.
If we transfer what happened during Saturn’s transit through Aquarius, (2020 – '23), the sign of freedom and community, to Pisces, there could in a worst case scenario also be introduced some restrictions on practicing or communicating about spirituality.
Or (further) attempts to cut off people from their soul and spirit and contact with a higher power.
So, if you consider yourself a spiritual being, be absolutely clear on not allowing anything or anyone to come between you, your inner life and your connection to a higher divine source or dictate what you can or cannot believe in or practice.
Saturn in Pisces also brings further focus on health care, elder care, psychiatry, social institutions etc.
Saturn here can unfortunately mean more cuts or limited operation, as well as a debate on how many and who it is realistic to help, in the given circumstances, after everything has been brought down.
Apart from that, and most importantly, responsibility could also be placed for actions the last years in both health care and the medicine industry.
Saturn will remain in Pisces until 2026.
WAR AND PEACE
Asides from the aforementioned Eclipses on the Taurus/Scorpio axis, we also begin a series of Eclipses on the Aries/Libra axis in 2023, with a Solar Eclipse in each sign.
This axis highlights aggression, military operations and war versus diplomacy, peace negotiations, truce and justice. Peace seem to be more prevailing during the Fall, where the Libra Eclipse will take place.
The individual’s will and desires and the consideration for others is also an important theme of this axis.
We also have Jupiter racing through Aries in the first months of the year, until May, which could also further highlight aggression and warfare.
It can however also offer individuals power of action, a zest of spirit, courage, flourishing optimism and an eye for exciting new possibilities.
The individual will generally be harder to suppress than previously, during this transit.
2023 ASPECTS: PAIN, ANGER, JUSTICE, HEALING – 2020 WILL STILL HAUNT US
Humanity has been through a lot in the past years and in many ways also seem traumatized and under maximum pressure.
There’s clearly a need for healing – and we will get an opportunity for that in 2023.
Even though there’s no major long-lasting aspects, there are still some important collective aspects and they all appear within a few months of the year from late February/March till June/July, which is interestingly also within the same timeframe as all of the above mentioned sign changes.
So, a lot of activity is concentrated in the Spring Quarter and about a month/some weeks before and after.
Jupiter will conjunct Chiron in Aries.
Here the opportunity for healing arises as well as important lessons that can be learned, that in the future can become wisdom and provide higher meaning.
There is a price for this healing and learning though; that we are willing to face something difficult and painful and start dealing with it.
We get a strong hint of what at least some of this painful stuff could be, when Saturn and Pluto simultaneously, for the first time since their Great Conjunction in 2020 will connect again in their mutual cycle, creating a semisextile.
This intense and heavy aspect was used to write world history with draconian measures all over the world; lockdowns, restrictions, mandates, bans and extreme meddling in people’s lives and possibilities to travel, socialize and earn a living.
If we don’t rip up that sprouting seed, sown back then, here in 2023, it will become a recurring thing. While a virus was blamed the past years, it can be all kinds of other reasons and excuses in the future. But the measures could be repeated. Or we could conclude in 2023, that this simply went too far and was nothing less than abuse and assault on humanity and we then promise each other to never do something so drastic again.
But even though we potentially stop the methods from recurring use, we will still have to deal with the consequences of what WAS initiated during that conjunction.
Repercussions, damages and trauma will pop up again and again years and decades from now. Irreversible damage has been done in some cases. Others will need serious measures to counteract.
So, yes healing is definitely needed and in a best-case scenario we might even discover some new – or old - healing methods for those who have been harmed physically as well as mentally.
Following that a huge focus on justice will come up during Spring.
Jupiter will also conjunct Eris in Aries.
Some of those who have felt excluded, stepped on or otherwise treated unfairly can now receive some kind of redress or attention.
But some (not necessarily the same) could also become very, VERY angry and vengeful during Spring.
This could potentially run completely off track and amock and become very violent and destructive.
Hopefully we can find a more civilized manner of receiving justice for the aggrieved.
But unfortunately, lynching is not completely out of the question with this extremely hot-headed combination in Aries.
Another 2020 conjunction, between Jupiter & Pluto also reaches a crisis point, in the form of a square, in their cycle around the same time.
This ALSO highlights justice – and also involves a throwback to 2020’s extreme lawmaking (and lawbreaking, when it came to constitutional rights) – the lawmakers who were responsible back then as well as those who implemented it.
This aspect also highlights economy, resources and distribution, by the way.
Finally, the last aspect is ANOTHER of the Great 2020 Conjunctions, this one between Jupiter & Saturn, who met in Aquarius at the end of that year and who will now make a harmonious sextile to each other.
Back then, we got a rather clear example of the fact, that some DO truly fear the potential for humanity when it comes to the free-flowing undiluted Aquarian energy.
This otherwise hopeful aspect was obviously sabotaged and abused. A syringe was presented as a scientific miracle and the ONLY hope in the dark - ( there was that “only solution – thing” again….) – and then we were all locked down and separated from each other for FAR longer, than the first time (where we didn’t have a so called “super weapon”…) – giving the Aquarius conjunctions promise of freedom, community, true hope and light extremely difficult circumstances to shine through.
However, during all the three 2020 Conjunctions, asides from the official things initiated, there were other far more important seeds sown, other kinds of hope and visions for a brighter future, which were manifested and sent out into the ether back then.
This was especially true for the Jupiter – Saturn Conjunction at the Winter Solstice that year: A literal Return of the Light on Earth, “The Age of Aquarius”, hope, freedom, truth, community, light, love – agape.
All of that was envisioned and poured out there and didn’t just disappear into nowhere, despite the obstacles.
It has gestated in hiding and will in 2023 reach a new harmonic point, where it can take on a more visible and concrete form, that can be used constructively, by those who wishes to do so.
This will happen at the same time as Pluto is dancing back and forth between Aquarius and Capricorn – which tells us that the true Aquarius energy and spirit cannot be kept down forever.
What we need to do now is to strengthen the highest qualities of that sign and not allow anymore dark and twisted versions to be initiated, not allowing anymore distraction or sabotage blocking the true potential.
And then there will be a lot to clean up after the latest Pluto in Capricorn years – and 2023 looks to be a year when that clean up phase can start in earnest.
All freedom loving spirits, all alternative people, all spiritual people, all free thinkers, all intuitive empaths; those of you who have acted from a pure, honest heart and mind and have substance behind you and your claims – you’re the ones who will now get the opportunity to lead the way and set a good example. Time to get ready!
Happy New Year 🥰
Freedom Truth Light ☮ & 💗 Tina
