Our last spin around the Sun was a wild cosmic rollercoaster ride of emotional highs and lows. 2023 promises just as much growth and change, but this time, we are more than ready to greet all possible futures. Let the sunshine in — it is the dawn of a promising new year! With Pluto moving into Aquarius for the first time since 1798, “future” is the operative word. As the year begins, it may feel like we are headed in the wrong direction, since both Mars and Mercury will be retrograde until January 12 and 18 respectively. It can feel like a sigh of relief once they start to move in the right direction again, especially after such a messy end to 2022. We might not be ready to write our New Year’s resolutions until February, and that is more than okay. In fact, using this time out to reflect and integrate all the new changes in our lives might be the best use of our time.
