Another year means another opportunity to live your very best life. Granted, we are about to narrow it down to the unlucky zodiac signs who will have the worst year in 2023, but don’t take this to heart. There will be highs and lows for all 12 zodiac signs because perfection is an illusion. So, let's take a closer look at the more challenging aspects of the year ahead to help ground and prepare ourselves for what's to come. Are you ready?

The Start and Mid-month Hurdles

Let’s not sugarcoat it—despite the thrill of the NYE countdown and the cinematic appeal of clinking glasses as the clock strikes midnight, the symbolism of the winter season remains. The cold weather and long periods of darkness are associated with death, but this is only because our actual “rebirth” occurs in the springtime. That being said, don’t be discouraged if things aren’t progressing at full speed in January. After all, starting the year with Mars and Mercury retrograde isn’t necessarily ideal, especially since both of these planets play significant roles in our everyday lives. The good news is, you’ll be in the clear by mid-month, as Mars will station direct on January 12, followed by Mercury on January 18.

March, a Pivotal Month

Fast-forward to March, a high key pivotal month in 2023. Saturn, the taskmaster planet that brings structure to our sense of belonging in the world, will enter Pisces on March 7 for the first time since 1996. Saturn in Pisces will bring discipline and reality checks, specifically in areas of life where we tend to dissociate or over idealize. It can trigger feelings of limitation and restriction, removing our rose-colored glasses. However, if we do the work and commit to self-mastery, we will be rewarded in the long run.

Pluto's Influence

As for Pluto’s ingress into Aquarius on March 23, there is nothing remotely subtle about this transit. It will transit through this fixed air sign until 2043. Consider the collective effects of Pluto in Capricorn since 2007, where it destroyed hierarchies and transformed our perception of tradition and power. Under this transit, authority figures who misused their power were brought to light. Now, with Pluto in Aquarius, the emphasis is on our societal programming and community affairs. The areas of your birth chart where Aquarius and Pisces are located will experience the most traction and transformation.

A Year of Challenges for Leo, Aquarius, and Pisces

If your sun sign or rising sign happens to be Leo, Aquarius, or Pisces, here’s why you’re more likely to experience challenges in 2023:

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Before you think it’s the end of the world, hear me out—2023 will certainly test you, but it’s only making you more resilient. It will challenge the foundation of your intimate unions and serve as a catalyst for your relationships. Saturn, journeying through Aquarius, has been helping you create stability and structure in your one-on-one relationships. Saturn will officially enter Pisces on March 7, bringing discipline and structure to everything from your joint ventures to your emotional attachments. If you’re hanging onto a commitment or a relationship that’s no longer in alignment with your true North, Saturn could remove this energy from your life. Pluto's presence in Aquarius will unveil the shadow side of your relationship dynamics. Take advantage of Venus retrograde in Leo from July 22 to September 3 to reflect on your personal branding and rediscover your gifts and talents.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

One of the main astrological takeaways of the year has your name on it—the ingress of Pluto into your sign on March 23. Pluto, the planet of destruction and transformation, is associated with death, rebirth, and personal power dynamics. It will reconnect you with your shadow side, allowing you to rise above your darker attributes. This transit will bring significant changes, particularly if you have personal planets in the early degrees of Aquarius. Saturn's concluding journey through your sign on March 7 will shift its focus to your stability-seeking second house of finances and values. This transit will help you build a strong foundation for yourself and your financial security. Use this time to work on your self-esteem and trust in yourself.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

It's not over until it's over, but you got this, Pisces. Saturn, also known as Father Time, will enter your sign on March 7 for the first time since 1996. This transit will bring discipline and harsh reality checks to areas where you tend to dissociate or avoid. Saturn will remove the facade and encourage your self-improvement. Pluto's transit through your 12th house of closure, dreams, and inhibitions will confront past energies and help you evolve. It's an excellent time for strengthening your intuition and reconnecting with your spirituality.
