What to expect in 2023, according to your horoscope

Horoscopes 2023 are here, so get ready to reassess every area of your life based on your star sign – relationships, health and career.

Seeing everyone for who they really are, plus everything for what it really is, will figure throughout the year.

It will be a time where we experience humanity doing an about-face to start treating others the way they’d like to be treated.

We are well and truly overdue for prosperity and fairness for the good of all to be activated on the planet.

It’s time for struggle to cease and fairness to abound.

It will be a year where the energies will see everyone held accountable.

However, it would be remiss not to mention those Mercury retrogrades that people get so concerned about.

I, for one, always look at the positives – retrogrades are also a great time to step back and reassess everything before moving forward.

Here’s to an amazing year!


March 21-April 19

It will be an active year of change as planet Jupiter (expansion and opportunity) continues its transit through your sign until May 16.

By applying its energy during that time, your creativity or ideas relating to new projects will have ongoing beneficial results – however, beware of scattered energy if you’re not focused.


Make sure you stay grounded emotionally from February 20 to March 18 when planet Venus visits your sign.

Focusing your energy on what you want and doing whatever is required to create harmony will pave the way for how the rest of the year will pan out concerning all relationships.

Career and money

Focus on what you want to manifest in these areas of your life.

Money will take on a whole new meaning, and you won’t regret channelling your energies into ideas that arise from March 19 to April 3 while planet Mercury (mind) and Sun (identity) visit your sign.

In so doing, you will set yourself up for some pretty exciting times.


Holding on to past grievances will create health problems for you this year, so it’s important to deal with whatever ails you – to release and let it all go.

Turning your back on – and walking away from – whatever (or whomever) doesn’t work will be important.

In doing so, you’ll experience improved health as you (not your emotions) will be in control of what you eat.


April 20-May 20

This will be an extremely progressive year, especially from May 17 as Jupiter (expansion and opportunity) settles in to take you on a very exciting journey.

As new ideas come your way from April 4 until June 10, you can expect a lot more freedom, presenting you with a greater feeling of independence.


As planet Venus activates its energy from March 17 to April 10, it will be decision time – but don’t expect everyone to be happy with your choices or decisions.

You’ll find your patience tested all year, so try to be as calm and grounded as possible, as this will create the best possible outcomes.

Career and money

Expect change as new ideas arise from April 4 to June 10.

Listening to and trusting your gut feelings all year will be extremely important.

Some of you may decide to pack your bags and try something new.

However, make sure it is you that makes the decision, not another – never hand away your power.


You will have an erratic energy activated around your health this year, so be aware of how you feel about any treatment or diet you are advised to follow.

No one knows your body better than you do so if something doesn’t feel right, you need to trust yourself over an outside opinion.


May 21-June 20

Okay, Gemini, it’s action time from January 1 to March 24.

Overcoming any obstacles during this time will create the path you’ll travel for the rest of the year.

There is a lot of positivity indicated – just make sure you keep on top of personal issues, and don’t allow outside influences to distract you.


April 11 to May 7 will be a positive time to take relationships to a new level.

Saying everything as it is, instead of what you think others want to hear, will see you feeling happier, with a clearer state of mind.

Towards the end of the year, expect your focus to be on where you live and who you have in your life.

Career and money

You’ll experience some full-on energy until March 24.

Keep an eye on your need to control others; focusing your energy on what you are doing (not others) will be your recipe for success this year.

Ego will stop you from creating the success you wish to manifest.

A change of career may be worth considering.


It’s always your nervous system that creates havoc for you; however, you need to ask yourself why.

Time to take it into consideration instead of always pushing yourself to do more.

Breaking from past restrictions will bring more balance, supporting you to connect with your inner self rather than living at 100km/h.


June 21-July 22

Late March to late May will be a time of change in all areas of your life.

If you’re wanting to leave things behind that no longer work, then that would be the best time to take action.

Being the year of personal growth, 2023 will force you to do some deep soul-searching.


Expect an interesting time romantically from May 8 to June 5 when planet Venus brings its energy your way.

Keeping yourself emotionally grounded will be important, otherwise you’ll find yourself in a powerplay situation – so be warned.

Trusting your gut feelings will protect you from being used and allowing manipulative, controlling people into your life.

Career and money

New career opportunities, or being in the right place at the right time, figure from March 25 to May 20 as planet Mars (career, energy direction) visits your life.

Make sure you get out and about as contacts will play an important role in success this year.

It will be important to keep an eye on your outgoings.


Out of all of the signs, it is your emotions that play real havoc with your health.

Times to be positive and take care of yourself will be March 29-30, April 25-26, May 23-24 and July 16-17.

Finding the right diet will be important this year as regeneration is indicated.


July 23-August 22

This will be a year for growth. Everything will seem to fall into place without any effort from you.

Reaping the benefits of last year’s hard work will make for a very happy you.

If everything you say and do comes from total integrity, this year will find you kicking goals.  


Well, you can expect a very interesting journey when it comes to your relationships this year. From June 6 until October 8 you will have everything supporting you astrologically to create the right energy to only attract the positive into your life.

Being thoughtful will benefit you in more ways than one.

Career and money

Ideas abound from July 11-28.

Anything to do with making the world a better place this year will bring more success than what you hope for in other areas.

Getting out and about will find you meeting the right people at the right time.

Being humble will see you creating amazing support.


Mental dilemmas will create havoc from July 11-28, so make sure you apply a practical approach to all you do, or your health will suffer.

Any dissatisfaction felt in 2023 will be caused by you not listening.

It’s important to remember that no matter how busy you make your life, you can never lie or hide from yourself.


August 23-September 22

Work, a move or a wake-up regarding relationships will create a change of status for you this year.

Things may prove challenging; however, you have what it takes to get through.

Peace of mind will be important, plus consolidation.

Early July to late August will be the best time for opportunities to grace your path.   


October 9 to November 7 brings the best energy for relationships.

Because of the challenging journey placed on your path last year, if you didn’t back away from what you needed to learn then, all past conflict will melt away, seeing you more connected to your heart and reaching your emotional goals.

Career and money

It will be full steam ahead regarding your career from July 10 until August 27 when planet Mars pays you a visit.

New ideas will abound from July 29 until October 4, and many of you will find yourselves starting a new career or becoming self-employed.

Being generous will be your key to success.


Time to create inner peace and contentment – Virgos require both to create good health. Detoxing your system will be the greatest gift you can give your body this year as it will create an opportunity for regeneration.

Having a diet that consists of foods with the least amount of human interference is highly recommended.


September 23-October 22

You can expect a big shift of energy around mid-January – if you take up the challenge presented, it will support you in taking your life in a new more exciting direction.

Keeping focused will support you in achieving your goals.

Whatever you do, make sure you trust your gut feelings.                


There is a lot happening in this area of your life towards the end of the year, and from August 28 to December 4, you can expect a lot of action.

Learning to put yourself first as you journey through the year is important as it will support you in getting really clear about what you do and don’t want.

Career and money

Expect a lot of dynamic energy from late August to mid-October – lucky then that you will have what is needed to activate career opportunities and support from higher up.

Having the confidence to ask for what you want all year will be important and if you work with a team, you’ll achieve what others think is impossible.


By trusting your feelings and not taking “no” for an answer, you’ll find yourself on top of whatever has been bugging your health over the past couple of years.

Many of you will choose to go down the alternative path for treatment, or a simple change in diet will do the trick.


October 23-November 21

This will be a year of you having to make some important decisions as it’s time to take your life in a new direction.

You’ll figure out how to walk away from people and situations that no longer work.

Things will prove challenging; however, you need to do what’s right for you, not what others want.


Brooding over what has been will get you nowhere.

The aspects point to you doing a dance between independence and partnership this year. Standing your ground, and focusing on manifesting your desired outcomes, is important. This will prove challenging as it’s about you creating what you want – watch out for others trying to manipulate you.

Career and money

This year is the ideal time for you to focus on what you want to do and be in the world.

Many of you will find yourselves surrounded by people wanting to support your business/financial goals, so make the most of it.

Negativity will play havoc with your health this year, so being as positive as possible is important.

Finding your own power and owning it will support your energy levels.

Consider deleting processed and white foods, such as flour and sugar, from your diet as they could play havoc with your body, leading to low energy and illness.


November 22-December 21

Massive change will grace your path this year as doors previously closed to you fly open.

Time to take to the helm and sail into unchartered waters.


Your life in 2023 is going to be about people, people, people.

Setting your boundaries and sticking to them in all relationships will be important.

Facing every challenge with a calm, positive attitude will do wonders.

Finances will be given an energy boost, which will help relieve the load you have carried for quite some time.

When you know you need a recharge, it will be up to you to make yourself your number one priority.

Spending time in nature will recharge your batteries, as will getting enough sleep.


December 22-January 19

It’s time for new beginnings in all areas of your life.

By holding on to what you’ve known will block the growth that’s needed, but directing your energies into something new will prove beneficial.

Anything to do with people will bring success your way.


From January 3-26 you’ll be supported astrologically to manifest what you want, or transform what hasn’t worked regarding all relationships.

Living in the present and being realistic will be important as being too idealistic will create disappointment.
