The Astrology of 2023 & Beyond
Saturn will also make a major shift into Pisces from March 2023- Feb 2026. Joining up with Neptune who is there on an 15 year journey (2011-2026). Saturn will now be in the House of Spirit with its ruler and guardian. This could be a return to the ancient ways of wisdom, Cosmic Practices and Consciousness, Spiritual Law, and an understanding of our place in the Universe.
Jupiter will start the year in Aries but transition into Taurus in May to conjoin the North Node of Evolution in the final degrees before itself shifts into Aries. This is is a profound conjunction on May 30. Jupiter in Taurus is putting into practical use and action our Visions, Truths, Beliefs and Wisdom.
The Karmic Nodes of Fate will shift from Taurus & Scorpio to Aries & Libra in July and start a new 18.6 month journey of evolution for the collective and individuals. We will also experience 4 Eclipses, 4 Mercury Retrogrades, and be stepping into the year of the Water Rabbit on Jan 21. The Water Rabbit is related to Pisces, Neptune and Jupiter so this will give an extra boost to the Spiritual Awakening and Evolution.
The planet Uranus will be delivering lightning bolt calls to awaken. For those on the path our job will be to stand in our illumination and use our own path of our Soul’s Purpose to help others awaken too. Let this be a year of illumination.
Learn about greater cycles of time that are now unfolding that are referenced by the Greeks, The Yogis, The Mayans, and the Lakota. We’ll also cover the quantum physics and evolutionary states of consciousness and how these transitional events will play out for each. We will share tools and practices that may be helpful to navigate these unfolding energies and times. And, we we will look at the astrology of 2023 through 2025 and beyond.

“Get Clean. Find Clear. Start Right.”
It is now the final turn on the wheel of the year. We are heading towards Winter Solstice and the Dark Season. This is a perennial time when nature guides us inward to self-reflect. We may greatly benefit from cleansing our physical bodies, our emotional bodies and our mental/astral bodies at this. Be still and listen to what arises form the inner senses. This can be a process and can take time to understand. Stay dedicated to your spiritual practices with regular and sustained effort. The Yogis call this Tapas. The right direction will present and we may cultivate more Will Power to follow through on our inner guidance. This journey is aligned with the Winter Solstice and marks the rebirth of the inner and outer light. Our mantra for the next month’s astrology can offer a path at this time: “Get Clean. Find Clear. Start Right.”
The Gemini Full Moon is Nov 27 and energized with a Mercury-Neptune square. The Moon is our emotional and intuitive bodies. Illuminated in Gemini, this will draw awareness to our Communication, Nervous System, and our Perceptions. Are they clear, clean, accurate and True? Mercury square Neptune may point out where they are not. Neptune can show us our delusions and false grounds that we stand on. Remember the power of Truth and our words of communication.
Venus squares Pluto, enters Scorpio, and trines Saturn on Dec 3, 4 & 5. First Venus- our values- meets up with the Soul, our conscience. Are we clean and clear with how we invest our time, relationships, spiritual practices, and Life Purpose? The Soul may reveal where we are out of alignment. Venus in Scorpio is an offering to be vulnerable, to surrender whats needs to be surrendered, and transform. The trine with Saturn is a strengthening of our Inner Will to aligning with our Soul.
Neptune goes direct on Dec 6. Neptune is on a 14 year journey through Pisces and will move out in 2025. We are at the tail end of an extend opportunity to deepen our spiritual life. Once Neptune goes into Aries, there will be a noticeable shift of action and manifestation based on what we have sown for the last 14 years. Use this remaining time well.
Dec 12 is the Sagittarius New Moon. Sagittarius is Truth, Trust & Journeying. Go inward to the Self and get clear. New moons are always a good time for ceremony. This same day, Mercury goes retrograde from Dec 12 – Jan 1. Mercury will criss-cross from Capricorn back into Sagittarius. Retrograde energies draw us inward and seek to rebalance what is disharmonic or misunderstood. This time will set an energy for the New Year, use it well.
On Dec 21, the Sun enters Capricorn and is the Winter Solstice. The return of the light with Capricorn energy. Capricorn is the goat-fish. The goat is the animal that can easily navigate and climb to the top of the mountain-The Material World. The fish nation can swim to the deeps of the sea- The Spiritual World. The return of the light is mastery and balance in both worlds, which is Capricorn energy~ wisdom and practice in action.
Mercury sojourns back into Sag on Dec 22, retouching the themes of getting clear and starting right. Know yourself, your deepest self.
Christmas Day on Dec 25 is a harmonious trine between Neptune (now direct) and Venus. If we have connected with the mantra of the month, this will be a supportive time where our inner values align with our Spirit and feel synchronistic, empowered and maybe even Light Hearted.
The Cancer Full Moon and Chiron Direct are on Dec 26. The last full moon of 2023 is in the moon’s home sign and supports the Wounded Healer’s look at our Masculine energies. See you after the Solstice, and until then… “Get Clean. Find Clear. Start Right.”
