The year 2023 and its astrological effects on the sign of Aquarius.
The year 2023 brings excellent opportunities for personal interests, communicating, studying, learning, and connecting, dear Aquarius. There can be improvements to your daily life, transportation, and interactions. More joy can be found in mental pursuits, although you’re inclined to take on more than you can manage now, so watch for this! More daily contact with friends is likely now as well. You’re likely to increase contact and find it quite pleasant.
Jupiter, the planet of abundance, begins its year-long journey through your home and family sector in May. While the North Node leaves this area of your solar chart in July, Jupiter picks up the baton, bringing blessings to your personal life and domestic world. The year spotlights the pleasures and comforts of home. Real estate or living conditions are favorable.
Since 2020, Saturn has been occupying your sign, but it now moves out (in March), not to return for another twenty-seven years! This influence has been sobering at times. There may have been times when you were more aloof and introspective, and certainly less spontaneous. This year, a stronger, more realistic, and more mature “you” emerges after Saturn’s life lessons. At the same time, you feel lighter and less pressured.
In the same month, however, Pluto moves into your sign, and it can feel that you’re swapping out heavyweight planets! Pluto won’t transit your sign consistently until late 2024; until then, it weaves in and out of Capricorn and Aquarius. But this Pluto transit is on its way, and it will ask a lot of you. Stirring in you is the desire to make radical changes to how you go after what you want in life. How you view your place in the world is evolving. For now, you might be flirting with the idea of changing your manner, image, or approach. In the years ahead, you’ll be reclaiming your personal power.
It’s a strong year for making changes and improvements on the home front or in your personal life. The potential for amazing progress and growth is with you. Your confidence grows concerning your family, living arrangements, and living conditions. These areas of life blossom, expand, or improve. There remains some unpredictability in your domestic world, but you enjoy the twists and turns more often in 2023.

Key Events in 2023 for Aquarius:
Outer Planet Transits:
Jupiter conjuncts Chiron in March and is parallel Chiron in April. These influences encourage an increased need for greater understanding, wisdom, and awareness, as well as a stronger interest in the healing arts and holistic health. It may be a time when we update our personal belief system. The potential is high for working on ridding ourselves of negative attitudes that have held us back.
We can be especially interested in dealing with personal demons that have fractured our confidence and ability to assert our boundaries.
For Aquarius, you discover better ways of communicating and opening up the lines of communication. There can be new channels or platforms for self-expression, which can be more imaginative, creative, and, ultimately, more fulfilling. You have a more vital awareness of what’s good for you, which can draw you in a new direction. You attractively present original and unique ideas, helping others open up in kind. Friendship, communications, and learning are rewarding.
Jupiter forms a square to Pluto in May. We’re ambitious, feeling that if we set our sights high enough, we can achieve anything. However, treading lightly now, while it may not come naturally, is advised as it is easy to stir up conflict. We may take on too many interests, activities, or desires under this influence. We should avoid exaggerating our importance or power, whether to ourselves or others.
Something challenges our belief system, and the need for a major attitude change arises. Narrow-mindedness can be a problem. Trying to force our beliefs on others will only lead to frustration. The tendency now is to push too hard in general and to ignore the critical details. Thinking in big terms is fine as long as the practical elements of any pursuit are taken into consideration.
For Aquarius, your desire for comfort and domesticity is building. At this time, you might see where unhealthy attachments and attitudes may hinder your chance to move forward and take advantage of opportunities to grow and improve. Conflicts between domestic demands/needs and personal goals/needs can reach a head.
Jupiter conjuncts the True North Node in early June, increasing our desire to make contact with like-minded people or with those who can help push us in the direction of growth and improvement. It’s a time of positive interaction, learning, and guidance.
For Aquarius, a central theme in your life right now is developing your sense of security, attachments to family, and home life. You have an open mind and an open heart so that new information coming in can expand your perspective. There is more faith in your emotional life and the ability to grow through your experiences. Fortunate connections or opportunities emerge for improving your domestic life or living conditions and arrangements.
Jupiter forms a sextile with Saturn in June, bringing opportunities to put our plans into motion. We’re balanced in our approach to new endeavors, seeing both the potential benefits and pitfalls, and this improves our judgment. This influence helps us crystallize and lock down recent lessons learned and endeavors.
It’s a period of constructive accomplishment. We are practical, realistic, and our judgment is especially sound–and we derive much satisfaction from practical accomplishment. We find a good balance between planning and discovering.
It’s also a time when we value learning and sharing valid information from trustworthy sources. We respect reasonable, ethical, and sound approaches. The key to harnessing this wonderful energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make us happy.
For Aquarius, there is a positive focus on steadiness and security. You’re willing to put in the effort to make constructive changes to money, home, and family matters that boost our self-esteem and sense of security. Efforts to structure and discipline yourself, especially with money and personal belongings, are excellent, and the results help you succeed and enjoy your personal life more thoroughly. It’s a powerful time for organizing your things! It’s also a fine time for coming into your own, seeking out more from life, and asking what you can do to make life more rewarding. Business matters prosper, and you’re likely to feel comfortably supported and supportive. Reasonable expectations help you achieve what you set out to do.
Mars is retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, in the sign of Gemini (pre-retrograde shadow begins September 3). We can feel stuck on past relationships or situations, finding it difficult to move ahead.
Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations figure strongly now, particularly related to romance, recreation, and creative or heartfelt pursuits. There can be weighty issues and delays to manage. Lackluster areas of your life seem to be in the spotlight. Fortunately, you can use this time to get in touch with your current needs and desires.
Note that Mars is the ruler of your communications and transportation sector in your solar chart, and all Mars retrograde periods, including this one, seem to impact these areas.
Venus is retrograde from July 22nd to September 3rd in the sign of Leo, bringing about a need to rethink or reassess our personal relationships. Past lovers may reappear and some relationships may end. Problems with fire, passion, and attention can be hot topics.
We might revisit our past loves–typically in the mind only, but for some, on a physical plane as well. It’s not a good time for major decision-making regarding love, as we might regret our choices later. Think of this time as a process–you need time to allow your heart to catch up with the rest of you, and so do others.
We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or predestined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored just for now. It’s not the best period for entering a new relationship or making big purchases, because our sensors regarding love and money are not up to par.
For Aquarius, the question is whether or not you’re receiving satisfaction from and harmony with a partner or a close relationship. There can be a feeling of emotional distancing or limbo during this “review,” after which you’ll begin to put all the pieces together and feel more confident about making changes. You’re playing catch-up with your feelings, needs, wants, and values. Aim to consider problems from different angles and perspectives.

The horoscope on this page, Aquarius Yearly, shows the trends and predictions for the year in detail. Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Aquarius, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
There are some interesting developments for you this year, dear Aquarius. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that by understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease that you can make the most of these trends as you seek the opportunities and manage the challenges.
Aquarians are progressive yet loyal. They are not afraid to break from tradition if it doesn’t serve a good purpose. However, there is a need to structure your life or return to basics in some manner with Saturn continuing in your sign for a transit that cumulatively has lasted about three years. It started in 2020 and continues only until March 7th this year.
In 2023, you’ve learned to be more responsible, structured, and self-reliant. Fortunately, you have some support from Chiron, and until mid-May, Jupiter as well.
While Pluto is entering a very long-term transit of your sign, it’s only giving you a sneak peek from March 23-June 11.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Aquarius:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in a direct, challenging relationship with your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in a direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
As is evident in the above chart, harmonious, challenging, and neutral energy from the outer planets is balanced. This suggests a generally straightforward energy flow.
Even so, a challenging outer-planet influence is from your own (modern) ruler, Uranus. This transit can be somewhat destabilizing. It’s a period for reorienting yourself and answering a call to make some changes, even if they are not immediately welcome.
The North Node (not a planet) is challenging you until mid-year, and it helps you push your boundaries at home or in your personal life to improve yourself and your life.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Uranus is the only outer planet that’s actively challenging you in 2023, as was the case last year. Interestingly, Uranus is one of your ruling planets. This does point to a need to make changes to your home or domestic world and living conditions or arrangements, which can be occasionally disruptive, but ultimately liberating.
With a continuing focus on personality development and structuring your life until early March (brought to you by Saturn), surprises on the home front can sometimes challenge you, but you’re on the road to major improvements. In fact, from mid-May forward, Jupiter brings more enjoyment and blessings to your home life.
Pluto will remain in the background of your solar chart for a while longer, suggesting there is further work to do with getting closure in your life. However, it’s emerging this year for only a few months, and you’re getting a preview of Pluto’s transit to your sign. Transformation and reinvention are the themes.
Figuring strongly is special attention to exciting interests and developments with communications, connecting, transportation, family, and home life. Go big in these areas, but know your limits!
