Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st)
Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): January 2023 may start with being par for the course, with challenges abounding in your career and professional life. This is a good time to wrap up projects in the workplace but be warned that this might not go as easily as you desire. Jupiter just entered Aries, where it will stay for a long time, so you might find optimism is strong and that good opportunities are coming your way for prosperity and spiritual growth. You may also find that money through the workplace is easy come, easy go. As the month progresses, your emotions may be out of sorts around the middle of the month, but this will be short-lived. Many of the challenges in the workplace will clear up now, too, except for those having to do with communication and electricity. However, your romantic relationships may be going along well, and part of this may entail getting closer to your partner(s) as it pertains to choosing what you show others in public.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st)
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): While your emotions may be strong as 2023 begins, you may find that the workplace and profession are two areas that require the bulk of your attention. In general, though, this will simply be spotting and seizing opportunities for long-term growth and stability. If you can keep your daily life in check, you may discover that your life opens up in many ways, ranging from love to overall career direction and success. As the month matures, it is worth noting that your romantic relationships may come with challenges that have to do with what you enjoy doing with your partner(s) and why. You may also find it wise to re-evaluate your social scene, including those around you. Emotional control may be something you have in abundance towards the end of the month, and this may be just what the doctor ordered to carry you through the first half of February.
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice)
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): January 2023 brings some interesting energy, as you may find that a lot is happening in your mind and inner life. As the month continues, it is worth seeing that things get dramatically better, especially when it comes to how your relationships can advance your career. Most of this will have to do with finding stability within yourself, and during this time, that can be accomplished by finding the balance between your masculine and feminine sides. You may also see that you are surrounded by opportunities for financial prosperity and personal growth, but it would be wise to act fast when you see them, or you might miss out. In general, through the latter part of January, you may find it wise to play things conservatively when it comes to groups and society, and if you do this, you may find you deepen your romantic relationships.  
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st)
C Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Tension, miscommunication, and problems in the workplace may all be themes that ring in the New Year, but in the grand scheme of things, all of this may only be slightly worse than normal new years, so it would be wise to simply deal with things as they come up, rather than emotionally blow them out of proportion. You may also find that now is a good time to play things financially conservatively, as unexpected expenses may arise. As a side note, you may discover that now is a good time to change your spiritual practices and beliefs. As the month continues, a lot of the pressure and tension from earlier in the month will dissipate, if not dissolve entirely. There may still be workplace communication challenges, and your emotions may be out of sorts, but otherwise, you may be settling into 2023 by making a lot of minor adjustments in your life rather than having to address large, glaring issues.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st)
month for Leos! As January 2023 begins, you may find that some of the tension that has to do with your role in society and where you fit in may still be present, but, in some way, there is a sense of optimism sweeping over you. You may also find opportunities for financial advancement, in the long run, are present, but if you snooze, you will most assuredly lose. Personal growth and development would also be wise to do, especially when it comes to how you handle your emotions. As the month matures, you may find that tension, especially when it comes to groups and society, are more common than not, but other than that, things are rolling along quite nicely. This may especially be true when it comes to projects that involve working with other people, as they may become unstuck. Daily life may still be full of unexpected challenges or randomness, but if this area of your life is kept in check, you approach February 2023 as you would any given February, bringing a sense of normality back into your life.  
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox)
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): The beginning of January 2023 may bring a heavy emphasis on dealing with your professional life, particularly when it comes to wrapping up projects from last year. This may be true whether or not you want it, so it would be wise to do what needs to be done, even if it is bigger than the first appearance. Emotional control and staying productive may be your allies at the beginning of the month, which helps ease into the latter half. Other than a short temper or perhaps biting words in conversations, you may find that the second half of January 2023 brings immediate results in the workplace for the work you did two weeks prior, so instant gratification may be a good feeling for the beginning of the new year. Throughout the month, you may find it smart to be careful with your hands, especially your wrists, including making sure you don’t type too much. You may also be accident-prone if your temper gets the best of you or if someone makes you angry.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st)
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): January of 2023 may start with more challenges and problems than you think you can handle, but with a lot of thought and changes, you may find you come out of the month transformed for the better. Challenges may be present in your professional life, especially regarding money through the workplace, personal communication, and wrapping up projects from last year. You may also discover that challenges have to do with your profit margin, and your spirituality may need to be changed in the name of improvement. Wounds that have to do with your sense of self are still present, but the window for healing them has passed. As the month matures, your emotions may become problematic, and you may have issues when it comes to communicating them to the right people. The prosperity and spirituality challenges may still be present, too, but how you are seen in society and how you interact with groups may both be rolling along well, with money coming to you through them.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st)
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Emotionally, January 2023 may be tense, holding onto how 2022 ended, but this will be a fleeting feeling, as the month quickly moves in a positive direction, especially when it comes to your occupation and career, both of which may be rolling along nicely, bringing money and resolutions. If you make a lot of major adjustments and put in the work, you may discover hidden opportunities for prosperity and spiritual growth. As the month progresses, professional life may continue to stand in the spotlight, but now challenges are to be found that has to do with how you get along in groups and society in general. Regarding those two areas, you may find that your romantic life doesn’t quite fit or that there is something else that is ‘off’ about the interplay between intimacy and group participation. Money may not be flowing as easily to you through the groups that you know, but while this is problematic, in the overall scheme of things, it is fleeting, lasting only about three weeks.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice)
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): The key word for January 2023 is ‘Jupiter,’ as the planet has just arrived in Aries, and with it comes opportunities for long-term prosperity and personal growth. Seizing the opportunities when they come up might be the only way to capitalize, so it would be wise to stay sharp. You may still be internally feeling the effects of the Mars retrograde, but this will fade as it sets the stage for the second half of the month. Latter January brings a lot of good flowing motion, especially regarding money through your social connections and the unfoldment of romantic relationships. Mars has gone direct, and while still problematic, you may find it is not as severe as it has been and that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. A sense of relief may be present through the whole month, as most of the emphasis on Pisces, and therefore challenges, has dissipated, leaving you to feel that the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st)
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Happy birthday, Capricorns! This is your month to not only treat yourself but also to shine in your professional life. The Mercury retrograde at the beginning of the month encourages and directs you to finish up leftover work from 2022, but this will only take a couple of weeks. You may also find your emotional control is better than average and that you are doing a good job of handling emotionally charged situations in grounded and practical ways. As the month continues, the emphasis stays on the workplace and occupation, but now there is more attention on Jupiter’s entry into Aries. Challenges may be present when it comes to increasing your profit margin and prosperity, making this a good time to re-evaluate your long-term financial investments and plans. Your personal growth may also require changes and tweaks in light of how 2022 went. Humility would be a good way to start 2023 in general
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st)
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Your daily life may still be chaotic, full of the unexpected, but other than that, January 2023 may come with new chances for achieving prosperity, either through paying down debt or simply getting new opportunities for increased revenue. If you hesitate, though, you might miss out on what comes your way. Your personal growth is also rolling along nicely and well for the month, and the re-evaluation process that has to do with inner balance is coming to a close. As January moves on, it is worth noting that things go from average to good. During the latter part of January, your social life may come to the forefront to address, particularly when delegating your energy. Money may come to you through your ability to use your intellect or through the people you know. Your romantic life may also enjoy a spike because now is a good time to connect with your partner(s) by exploring subjects you both enjoy.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox)
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): Other than internal challenges that have to do with harmonizing your masculine and feminine sides, you may discover that January 2023 begins with a lot of good influences, especially coming from your career, occupation, and overall direction of life. Good things that have to do with your emotions may also pop off around you, particularly manifesting daily. As January continues, it is worth noting that handling your emotions comes easier to you and that your career continues to roll along nicely and smoothly, especially now that Mercury moves direct. ‘Minor adjustments’ may be the theme of the last half of the month, but if you adapt, like you are good at like you always do, you may find that setting yourself up for short-term growth comes easily, with fast-paying dividends of all types.
