Key themes: dream world, honoring your need to slow down, communities that inspire you, making a home for yourself, connecting with your inner child.
Happy New Year Pisces! For you, 2023 will be a year to connect with your intuition and your inner wisdom, to acknowledge it. Allow yourself to be supported and sustained by it. It’s also a time to have the hard conversations. Don’t postpone the things that need to be said and explored. Find support in your friendships and with loved ones.
The year kicks off with Venus, the Goddess of Love, joining forces with Pluto, the Lord of the Underworld, in Capricorn on January 1st, right before she moves into the sign of Aquarius on the 2nd, where she’ll be hanging out until February 20th. The year starts out with a check in regarding how our intimacy is impacted by the structures that are falling apart and transforming all around us. It’ll be easier for you to notice the dynamics that aren’t working within your groups and communities. Bring in the necessary conversations to the table in order to transform things. You have such a way to do so, that it’ll make it easier for others to respond. As Venus moves into Aquarius bringing some sweetness into your inner landscape, give yourself the chance to rest as much as you can this month.
On January 6th we have the first Full Moon of the year in its home sign of Cancer, happening at 6:08 pm EST, highlighting and intensifying your emotions when it comes to your romances, the children in your life and your creative self-expression. Look back at how far you’ve come with your creative projects during the past 6 months. How would you like to reinvent your emotional relationship with your creative life? Try not to let feelings of unworthiness get in the way of your ability to connect to your pleasure, your joy and to bring your creations to life from that space of expansion.
When Mars goes direct on the 12th, things will heat up within your home and family life. Let your fire, your passion and your heart fill your home. Redecorate, have fun experimenting with new recipes, play new games with your kids or old ones that you haven’t played in a while, have soothing conversations with your partner or your roommates. Give yourself whatever your inner child wants in order to feel safe, held and delighted within your dwelling.
Mercury retrograde comes to an end on the 18th, and so the messenger goes direct in the sign of Capricorn, activating new conversations and reviving the exchanges that might have brought up miscommunications or misunderstandings. What do you feel has been left unsaid within your networks, friendships, communities, and regarding your future visions and the causes that move you? This is a wonderful time to activate conversations that bring new and inspiring collective movements.
On the 20th, we welcome Aquarius Season, followed by the New Moon in the same sign, happening on the 21st at 3:53 pm EST. This Moon reaffirms Venus’ invitation to allow yourself to rest and recoup, without guilt, without fear of the social activities you’ll be missing. You give so much to the world and the people in your life. You deserve to retreat, regather and center your self-care. Then on the 22nd, Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius will go direct in Taurus, and this need will be even more felt, inspiring you to write about what’s going on in your inner world, start therapy, or have healing conversations with the ones that are there to hold space for you.
Venus will enter your dreamy sign, where its energy is exalted, on the 26th. Themes of compassion, unconditional love and intimacy through spiritual connections will be present for us all until February 20th. And for you, this will be especially present within your personal goals and journey of self-discovery.
