Happy New Year and all good wishes for a successful 2023. The year begins with tight planetary alignments in the serious and responsible sign of Capricorn. This reflects the themes of austerity and shortages which have unfortunately been thrust upon us for now and over the next few years. Fortunately, Jupiter in Aries and Neptune in Pisces both bring optimism and enthusiasm for a new way of living; these planetary cycles remind us of how important it is to be patient, stay true to ourselves and trust our inner wisdom. Mars, the planet of action and motivation, goes direct in adaptable Gemini on the 13th, suggesting it’s time to take stock and look at other ways of accomplishing your aims and ambitions; whatever is not working needs to be addressed with a new approach. Love planet Venus arrives in Aquarius on the 3rd, this objective influence moves us towards unconventionality, independence and freedom – something we can all benefit from. Change and opportunity are the themes of the first full moon of the year, arriving in the sign of Cancer on the 6th. The first new moon of 2023 falls in individualistic Aquarius on the 21st, this indicates that the time is right for following and honouring your intentions for new beginnings.
