In my last astrology update, I mentioned how a leader may step down or pass away in the fall of 2022, and Queen Elizabeth was that leader. She being a Taurus played out with Saturn in adverse aspect to Uranus in Taurus. I also discussed how crypto and the stock market would plummet and they did. Jupiter in Pisces and Saturn in square aspect to Uranus in a money sign, Taurus, was an obvious call. The question is: Will the stock market and crypto turn around for the better?

There is a lot happening astrologically and I am sure you must feel it. What takes place on earth is a reflection of the moving planets. In the beginning of 2023, there is a short-lived stall with both Mercury and Mars retrograde, which does not inspire improvements until after January 17th. Then Jupiter now residing in Aries, a very assertive fire sign, is activated. Aries likes to take action and Jupiter’s encouragement will bring improvements, especially where ever it is located in your astrology chart. Mars direct in Gemini, the sign of the twins, will likely have you addressing two situations in your life until late March.

However, I am not seeing an upswing in all industries. The problem is Pluto in Capricorn, which basically means, hardship for the masses. Although Pluto will move into Aquarius for about two and a half months starting late March, it retrogrades right back into Capricorn for the rest of the year. While in Aquarius, we as a planet can become more enlightened or experience the opposite, unrest.

 The real advancement with just about everything is when Mercury goes direct the morning of January 18th giving us the green light to go ahead. Most people will feel more inclined to act on projects, investments, travel plans, personal goals, and romance. Jupiter in Aries will be very motivating right into the spring and will bring some financial improvements.

Still, a sluggish influence is noted, Saturn semisquare Jupiter. Saturn takes away from what Jupiter could give. Working hard is the only way to get around this influence. This goes for our government as well. Saturn in trine aspect to both Venus and Jupiter in the USA astrology chart in the summer indicates that our government will need to buckle down. And perhaps that is just what is needed to address soaring debt and inflation.

In the meantime, use Jupiter in Aries to tackle what you want and need to accomplish this spring. You will find the motivation to do so and be pleased with the results.
