STAR OF THE MONTH
22 DECEMBER – 19 JANUARY
Not all years are created equal, and if you don't have the support of the great cosmic providers, there is only so much you can accomplish. That was your financial reality for much of last year. However, everything changes as Venus sidles
into your money sector in early January. Slowly but surely, this agreeable planet will prepare a very welcome financial package all of your own. As Capricorns surge forward, your directness will win you many favours. February through April prompts yet another change of direction. After June, you're ready to tackle this crazy world on new terms. Your own.
20 JANUARY – 18 FEBRUARY
As an Aquarian, you love being unique - so you'll love the amazing events coming your way this year. Just don't become too smug. Even though you may be riding waves of optimism, the currents could be unpredictable, so pay attention to details. Also, be prepared to jettison old baggage for new opportunities. Money shouldn't be too much of a problem. So if you're prepared to work hard, you can play hard as well.
19 FEBRUARY – 20 MARCH
If money and possessions are your priority, a generous Jupiter now promotes a substantial increase in cash flow. At times it could even seem you're blessed with the Midas touch. Although it may not be a huge windfall, your financial circumstances could greatly improve. If your values are more spiritual, then expect personal growth in this area. Of course, there's no reason why it can't be a combination of the two.
21 MARCH – 20 APRIL
This is a jewel of a year for determined Ariens. Your mind is sharp and better able to grasp abstract ideas. Being a trailblazer, you're in your element when put in charge or when facing demanding deadlines. Would you have it any other way? Maybe. A little extra romance would ease the pressure. Look to sexy Venus, who provides recreation in the bedroom. Discretion is needed if you choose an illicit path.
21 APRIL – 20 MAY
As Jupiter moves through your sector of subconscious and psychic sensitivity over the next year, Taureans learn about the mystic dimensions of their lives. If you feel more spiritually protected - you probably are, and if you need to be taught or healed, a guardian angel or new mentor will be close by. The really lovely news? If and when you truly need help, it's likely to arrive - sometimes from the most unexpected sources.
21 MAY – 21 JUNE
Sometimes it's hard to stay motivated. Even so, it doesn't hurt to acknowledge your talents - especially in moments of doubt. You know your true potential, and now's not the time to downplay it. There's a financial flavour to 2023, with enough interested forces ready to boost your cash flow. It also wouldn't hurt to spruce up your image - others will be drawn to your new look and magnetic charms.
22 JUNE – 22 JULY
Benevolent Jupiter has progressed into your career sector, so what seemed unattainable in the past should move closer within reach. At last, long-held ambitions can be fulfilled, even if some obstacles still need a bit of a determined nudge. But don't over-correct by eagerly taking on more than you can handle. Keep your good sense about you. In matters of the heart, singles could literally bump into someone from the past.
23 JULY – 22 AUGUST
Jupiter is happy in the 9th house, its natural placement. So if you've suffered any self-doubts, this positive planet's influence should help you get back on track. This next year can also have a powerful maturing influence - a time of personal and spiritual growth. Expect some beneficial contact with those living overseas - so listen up when you hear an interesting accent. You may also move house this year, perhaps long distance.
23 AUGUST – 22 SEPTEMBER
Whether in business or pleasure, it's all systems go. Basically, you can do most of what you want. Even so, expect the occasional drawback. Success often happens when preparation meets opportunity. This year, it's good fortune that prevails but remember - prepare for all possibilities. A similar theme applies to your love life. There's a good chance of finding your karmically-linked soulmate.
23 SEPTEMBER – 22 OCTOBER
Logic and instinct have had their differences lately, but they finally reach a truce, resulting in peace of mind. Through 2023, many Librans find themselves in an emotional state of grace, almost bordering on spiritual ascendancy. Friends and family could also have something special in store for you, so trust them. But as old habits die hard, trusting someone else's plans may take getting used to. Succumb and enjoy.
23 OCTOBER – 21 NOVEMBER
Ambitious Jupiter encourages serious breakthroughs at work. Though you might still be feeling a tad overworked and underpaid, throughout 2023, recognition and rewards seem inevitable. Business travel is also likely, as is an increased cash flow. The biggest threat, however, seems to be extravagance. As more cash arrives, there seems to be little chance of it accruing interest.
22 NOVEMBER – 21 DECEMBER
You're good at making money, Sagittarius. Even more so this year. Splitting expenses will help, as does an untapped new source of income - which means you could end 2023 feeling much more financially comfortable. Playful Jupiter also sparks a plethora of pleasurable appetites. Your capacity for personal enjoyment expands, as could your waistline. Just don't overdo a good thing—everything in moderation.
