The zodiac sign of Aries is known for its fiery spirit. The year 2023 brings opportunities for people with an Aries sun sign or placements opportunities to grow as individuals, create connections and clear away outdated attachments. From transits that support personal growth or career advancement to a rosy Aries love horoscope, find out what 2023 holds in store for the sign of the ram.
Being in the Spotlight
Aries is a cardinal sign that can thrive on attention and competition. 2023 is a great year for taking the spotlight, especially when Mars ends a retrograde cycle that began on Oct. 30, 2022 on Jan. 12, 2023. When the shadow period of this retrograde ends on March 16, you should be ready to step up and show off projects you’ve been working on behind the scenes.
You’ll be able to clearly communicate your ideas when Mercury goes direct on Jan. 18, ending a retrograde that began on Dec. 29, 2022. You should also factor in the shadow period for this retrograde cycle, which lasts until Feb. 8. Consider gaining insight through psychic readings for Aries during this time. Venus enters Aries on Feb. 20, which can attract the eye of a love interest, and can positively influence your second house of possessions when the planet enters Taurus on March 16.
Light Your Fire Up for the Year
In March, Saturn moves into your 12th house, which is associated with dreams and spirituality. This transit, along with the start of Aries season on March 21, can ignite your spiritual fire and help you harness the energy of this sign during the first half of 2023. From May 16 until May 2024, you can expect your self-worth, including your finances, to increase.
Jupiter enters Aries on April 22, and will not return for another 12 years. Seize this opportunity to start or advance on a project. This energy can be an opportunity to light a fire this year that keeps burning even as Saturn enters the mutable water sign of Pisces on March 7, 2023, in a transit that lasts through May 24, 2025.
Release Old Attachments
The new year brings opportunities for growth and also enables Aries placements to release old attachments that no longer serve your highest purpose. Whether you are consulting love horoscopes about new relationship prospects or the state of existing bonds, Aries placements can let go of trauma when Chiron goes retrograde in Aries on July 23 and close cycles with the full moon in Aries on Sept. 29.
Although Mars is in retrograde until Jan. 12, 2023, and the shadow period extends through March 16, Venus entering Aries on Feb. 20 presents new romantic opportunities. The new moon in Aries on March 21 signals the start of a new astrological year, while the new moon and solar eclipse on April 20 is the culmination of a shift that started eight years ago. The new year promises Aries sun signs and placements significant opportunities for personal expansion.
