Covid 19 Update:
No astrologer or astrological tool, including this AI-based engine, had foreseen the unprecedented pandemic caused by the novel coronavirus.
 
However, many experts were expecting large scale natural disasters to rock humanity. This is because the two most dreaded planets, Saturn and Pluto meet (conjuncts) at 22°46' Capricorn.
 
This is a rare cosmic influence, that impacts entire mankind, and should be over by February 2021. Astrologically, good fortunes shall prevail from 20th December 2020, when Jupiter meets Saturn - known as the "Great Conjunction".
 
Until then, be safe, and keep your loved ones safe.
 
How adverse is this influence for you?

  • Welcome to year 2023, dear Taurus! This new year finds you expanding your experiences and awareness, through travel or learning. But it is not that easy right now - with Mercury and Mars in Retrograde (backward-moving) motion. You are facing communication and technology breakdowns - in a nervous and touchy state of mind, you are looking for pleasure from anything that expands your horizons, and you are taking time to think before acting or lacking initiative. Fated events and repeating themes may reinforce, forcing you to re-think!
     
    Overall, you already have a challenging time with your occupation and public image. And, there is chaos of sorts (or some radical change) in your self-presentation and views. However, you stand optimistic and content regarding your inner self, spirituality, charity, compassion, and private life.
     
    Also, Mr. TIOS mentions that these decan-wise horoscopes are general observations, and far from accurate. The dates and events may vary from individual to individual - as a glance at the observations for different decans would reveal. For more appropriate observations, he needs your date of birth.

  • 8th March, 2023:
    Strict Saturn, that is purposeful and grounding in Pisces, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your friendships, group associations, hopes, and accomplishments. We’ve spent at least a couple of years focusing much of our energy on our place in society, our responsibilities, and our standing while Saturn transited the previous sector for a couple of years. We should be at a point where we know, realistically, what we are doing. When Saturn transits this sector, events or realizations cause us to ask ourselves where it is that we are going. Our personal goals come under Saturn’s scrutiny as he makes his way through our eleventh house. How we fit in with others, our affiliations with people and groups, and our peers all become serious matters in our eyes. We might feel that our personal “circle” or our networks are superficial or unsatisfying at the beginning of the transit. We might feel alienated as we begin to see them for what they are worth, or what they aren’t worth. We might feel some disdain for the superficial workings of casual friendships, begin to feel uncomfortable and self-conscious about “going through the motions”, doing and saying the right things, and so forth. Alternatively, we might meet someone with whom we establish a serious friendship at this time, or we might become a member of a group or affiliation that we devote much of our time to. Weeding out what seems now to be superfluous social associations from our lives is very likely at this time as we become more serious about what we want, on a personal level, from our lives. We take a hard look at the role we play in others’ lives, and consider exactly what it is that satisfies us and contributes to our happiness, beyond marriage, romance, career, religion, and so forth. As Saturn moves further through the house, and by the time the transit is over, we should have found ways to bring definition and articulation to our innermost wishes and hopes for our personal path.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the year, and beyond.

     
     
  • 24th March, 2023:
    Transformational Pluto, that is global and progressive in Aquarius, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. This extremely long-term transit brings gradual but deep changes to your career or long-term goals. Ambition is rather intense during this phase! In fact, there can be times when it seems to take over your life. The need to find deep significance with regards to your social standing or professional life becomes apparent. Some might attract negative attention from superiors or from others in your field who are jealous of, threatened by, or finding fault in the work you do.
     This influence stays with you till 11th June, 2023.

     
     
  • 20th April, 2023:
    Solar Eclipse in - arrives on your private world and psyche! A solar eclipse occurs in the daytime at new moon. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision - making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective is often revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it is better to take in right now - to observe and get in touch with your feelings.
     Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you, indicating a new approach to the ways you handle your inner world, the ways you compassionately serve others, and the manner in which you handle guilt. This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging your spiritual and, in effect, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfilment through service, empathy, and awareness of other's needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul - searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent.

     
     
  • 22nd April, 2023:
    Tactful Mercury turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in your own sign Taurus, afflicting your self-presentation and views. You face communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items - both lose or sometimes find - especially surrounding yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. This period can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels, and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Avoid signing contracts or comitting something, because this is the riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication, and transport - including a week before and after.
     This Mercury Retrograde cycle, indicates that extra care should be exercised when it comes to your body language. Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant. You may appear uncommunicative and hard to reach, or what you say comes out wrong. This is a time to review the manner in which you come across to others--not so much whether it truly reflects your nature, but more in terms of whether it is working for or against you. Don't worry too much if others aren't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. You might spend more time than usual when it comes to making decisions now, and this is natural. Rushed decisions may be regretted when you change your mind later on.
     When this retrograde cycle ends - After three weeks of readjustment, you can start getting plans back into shape for going ahead, which includes some new feathers put on your personal image. You may find you have discovered some improved ways of fitting your own leadership into the mix, which will firm up during the next few weeks and everyday rhythms get renormalized. Although it might not have seemed so a couple of weeks ago, you’re increasingly glad to have had the opportunity to edit your life a bit so you can better exploit your position both socially and financially during the next month or so. Some changes will be momentary, but some will last.
     This retrograde cycle especially effects you more adversely than any other zodiac sign or native. Take precaution!
     This influence stays with you till 15th May, 2023.

     
     
  • 2nd May, 2023:
    Transformational Pluto turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in air sign Aquarius, afflicting your occupation and public image. Fated events and repeating themes will reinforce on your controlling habits, compulsions, addictions or prejudices that must be eliminated - especially in matters of your career, reputation, ambitions, and social standing. This is a time of reflection about power and control in your life. If people have controlled or are manipulating you - then now is the time to let them go. If you have been too controlling of others or situations - then it is time to let go. This is not a time for power tripping but a time for elimination.
     Backward-moving Pluto joins along with Mercury - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till 11th October, 2023.

     
     
  • 5th May, 2023:
    Lunar Eclipse in - arrives on your private world and psyche! A lunar eclipse occurs at night at full moon. A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision - making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective is often revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it is better to take in right now - to observe and get in touch with your feelings.
     Surprises surrounding the compassionate care and attention you give others, as well as the work and service you render, may be in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. Your sectors of self - undoing, privacy, and dreams are involved. This could manifest, for example, as a situation that tests your faith and compassion, a culmination or fruition of a service you render, an event that calls on your urge for privacy and reflection, and other such possibilities. Finding a balance between practical concerns and spiritual or non - material matters is what this Lunar Eclipse is about for you.

     
     
  • 17th May, 2023:
    Optimistic Jupiter, that is tenacious and pleasure-seeking in Taurus, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook. Throughout its journey through this sector, Jupiter’s transit brings noticeable improvements to your environment as well as self-confidence to your personality. You are more obviously expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. This transit heightens your optimism and increases your generosity. This cycle has the potential for being a relaxed, fortunate, and hopeful time. You are greeting life with a fresh, can-do attitude. What happened in the past is not very important to you now–it’s the future that you’re eyeing now. You are filled with faith in the universe–faith that everything will work out. This is an excellent period for self-improvement. Dealings with the public are favored, and others tend to look at you as a leader. Events occur that help you overcome problems that previously seemed challenging or even insurmountable–you have an altogether different perspective on life now, and are not inclined much to sweat the small stuff. You want to create a distinct first impression on others, and you tend to do just that. Furthering your personal ambitions and interests comes more easily during this cycle. At times, you may feel like the sky is the limit! You feel considerably more free to be yourself, and others tend to accept you more readily. You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however. There is also a risk of overindulgence and other forms of extreme behavior. Weight gain is often associated with this transit. Be careful that a carefree attitude doesn’t end up a careless one. Particularly if Jupiter’s transit trines planets in the fifth and/or ninth, this is a favorable time for creative matters, romance, travel, and higher education.
     Please remember that Jupiter alone does not give results, your karma does! Jupiter merely gives you the wings to fly - even if, in your imaginations.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the year, and beyond.

     
    In addition - A wanting to succeed, and succeed big-time - is in the air, when the sky observes optimistic Jupiter in Taurus clashing with transformational Pluto in Aquarius - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. It could be a pet project or in your career that you feel this intense drive to reach the top. Success, power, and influence are all possible but without some care, there will be a price to pay. Ruthless determination, greed, and corruption may get you there quicker or make you more money but at what cost? Your personal life is the most likely area to suffer, especially your closest relationships.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 25th May, 2023.

     
     
  • 12th June, 2023:
    Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn, enters the sector of your personal chart that rules your education, knowledge, travel, perspective on life, and philosophy. Destroying things which have control over you will increase your spiritual power and lead to personal mastery. Fated events and repeating themes in your travels and experiences, will reinforce on your controlling habits, compulsions, addictions or prejudices that must be eliminated for your spiritual evolution. This is a time of reflection about power and control in your life, and this is not a time for power tripping but a time for elimination. If people have controlled or are manipulating you - then now is the time to let them go. If you have been too controlling of others or situations - then it is time to let go. If you have been too smothering and controlling in a relationship, holding on too tight, then you may be forced to let go. If obsessive or compulsive behavior involving food or drugs has taken hold of your life, then events may force a turn around. Perhaps suspicion, secrecy, racism, gambling or porn are taking control and holding you back. The more intense your destructive behavior, the more extreme the detoxification or withdrawal stage will be.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till rest of the year, and beyond.

     
     
  • 18th June, 2023:
    Strict Saturn turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in water sign Pisces, afflicting your social life and goals. Expect additional tests and challenges in the sector that Saturn transits - as if a double-dose of contraction is enforced regarding your friendships, group associations, hopes, and accomplishments. You will need to deal with particular issues involving your duties and responsibilities in these areas, and face limitation, restriction, anxiety and fear - in order to overcome them. This period offer a chance to recognize and admit the problems and issues that needs sorting. Things may get so out of control that an intervention or some drastic event must occur to shake you out of your depression or isolation. In the end, you should have come to terms with the relevant issues, and hopefully find ways to strengthen the foundations. Focus and motivation leads to productiveness, achievement and recognition.
     Backward-moving Saturn joins along with Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till 4th November, 2023.

     
     
  • 19th June, 2023:
    Cautious expansions - are in the air, when the sky observes optimistic Jupiter in Taurus connecting with strict Saturn in Pisces - primarily influencing your self-presentation and views. Some opportunities for growth are likely to be on offer and you can rely on sound judgement skills to only chose those opportunities that are right for you. These opportunities may be in your career, through investment or business deals, or in your personal life as major material possessions or relationship choices. You will come out of this experience wiser, richer, or happier.
     You might not be directly involved in the above possibilities, and be at the receiving end of such things - or imagine, or come to know, or otherwise become aware of such things.
     This influence stays around you till 29th June, 2023.

     
     
  • 1st July, 2023:
    Dreamy Neptune turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in water sign Pisces, afflicting your social life and goals. It is time to face some harsh realities concerning your friendships, group associations, hopes, and accomplishments - as some illusions, dreams and false realities are stripped off. The further from the truth you have travelled, or the more extreme your methods of escape, the bigger the shock. A new relationship or a critical event can trigger an old memory of pain - from which you sought to escape. You may then feel humiliated, exposed, betrayed, scared, anxious or guilty. You may spend more time worrying about yourself and your problems. Self-pity, social anxiety or depression could lead to withdrawal and loneliness.
     Backward-moving Neptune joins along with Saturn, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.
     This influence stays with you till 6th December, 2023.

     
     
  • 24th July, 2023:
    Sweet Venus turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in fire sign Leo, afflicting your home and domestic life. Your love life enters a fated period, a period of introspection and reassessment of who or what really brings you pleasure - especially about your domestic activities, home, family, and attachments. Giving and receiving love, affection, pleasure, and satisfaction becomes more difficult. Same goes for financial dealings or comforts of life - it is not an ideal time for investing or buying luxury items. You might have second thoughts, or simply lose interest, later. This is a good time to evaluate what your heart and mind desires - to improve how you feel about yourself, and to love yourself more. Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues. Even reminiscing about old partners will help to remove your karmic baggage and lighten the load. Destiny encounters are possible and you may actually come into contact with your soulmate - if so, you should experience a feeling of inevitability or familiarity - but it is better to wait until this cycle ends to make your move. You will likely become interested in someone or something of value that would bring you pleasure. During this period, you may find the reasons for problems in earlier or current relationships.
     This Venus Retrograde cycle, starts with affecting your home and family. Relations with your family may be a little strained. You might want to wait until Venus is direct before you express your frustrations with family members! What you say now may be costly. Furthermore, if you take the time to think about things, your approach to dealing with these issues later (after the retrograde) is likely to be much more productive. The desire or need for warm relations with family members, or for support and a feeling of security, is especially strong but the path to satisfaction may be hard to find just now. This is a great time to think about how to improve your home, but not necessarily for going forward with entirely new projects.
     When this retrograde cycle ends - Core values may have been at issue recently, with the need to take a second look at what is really meaningful to you and what is passing fancy. Such changes are now likely to solidify and give you a better sense of personal objectives and what your inner bottom line goals should be. Dispense with that which does not feed the soul but only gives temporary amusement. Quality, not quantity, should be the watchword — follow your heart, not just your appetite, and you’ll find that you will be well-filled. And don’t forget that when you give, you get, so an open and generous hand now means instant good karma.
     Backward-moving Venus joins along with Saturn, Neptune, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     This retrograde cycle especially effects you more adversely than any other zodiac sign or native. Take precaution!
     This influence stays with you till 4th September, 2023.

     
     
  • 24th August, 2023:
    Tactful Mercury turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in fellow earth sign Virgo, afflicting your creative world and romance. You face communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items - both lose or sometimes find - especially surrounding your romance, children, creativity, recreation, and hobbies. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. This period can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels, and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Avoid signing contracts or comitting something, because this is the riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication, and transport - including a week before and after.
     This Mercury Retrograde cycle, indicates that extra care should be exercised when it comes to matters surrounding romance, children, and creativity. Be as non-judgmental as you can with romantic partners and your children, if applicable. Re-thinking the suitability of your romantic relationships is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. There may be the need to revisit old issues with your children or lover, or there could be some communication problems with the same. Arguments with a lover may be blown out of proportion far too easily. Both you and your lover should avoid harping on the words used and try to get to the meaning behind the words instead. Or, a romance may not be moving forward in obvious ways. It might seem like stagnation, but it's actually a period of review and rest. Other possibilities include calls that are not returned, a lover is late for a date, or dates get cancelled. Speculation and gambling are not advised right now. It's probably not the best time to launch a new creative project, but it's a good time for reworking an existing one. Same goes for romance! Things will change after Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with romantic partners, and children; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.
     When this retrograde cycle ends - A period of changeability and shifting focus has turned the corner and you will increasingly know better which choices are viable and which are not. Provisional projects will turn into final directions; distractions will be identified and pushed aside. Wherever you do wind up going, don’t simply forget the road not taken, the path decided against. Keep them in your memory bank as they may turn up in other guises later and you’ll already be halfway there. Follow through on what looks like a winner now, but don’t let seemingly wasted time be forever lost by throwing away its fruits. Act selectively, but retain all.
     Backward-moving Mercury joins along with Venus, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     This influence stays with you till 15th September, 2023.

     
     
  • 30th August, 2023:
    Chaotic Uranus turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in your own sign Taurus, afflicting your self-presentation and views. You get a break from the rebellious energy that was directing you to bring about drastic changes, or with events enforcing such changes, in areas of yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook. This is a period to align your inner change in response to external changes in your life. It can also be a time to induce the changes in attitude or behaviours which are necessary to make the desired outward change possible - especially if you may have anticipated a major change in your life, or tried to initiate change, but nothing has happened. Previously, you were attempting to force radical changes in your self-presentation and views. Now, is the time to analyze whether your revolution was based on ignorance or the innocence of youth - and make necessary ammendments with insights about the error of your ways.
     Backward-moving Uranus joins along with Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto - already retrograde, and further slows down your life.
     As with all outer planets, this period causes relatively less concern than the rarer inner planet retrogrades like Mercury, Venus, and Mars retrograde cycles.

  • 5th September, 2023:
    Optimistic Jupiter turns Retrograde (backward-moving) in your own sign Taurus, afflicting your self-presentation and views. During this influence, you are drawn to reflect on issues related to yourself, your personality, body image, attitude, and outlook. These issues find such importance, that extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything is in order before you continue with your life. You might adjust your expectations re-align them realistically.

OVERALL YEARLY TRENDS
 

 
Expansion, Growth, Good Luck for 2023
Jupiter represents our optimism, hope and the sense of justice. It is the basis of how we go about trusting others and improving our lives, and how we express our generosity and tolerance. Jupiter's transit expands the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your awareness along with it. It stays in each sign for almost a year, as it covers the entire zodiac in 11,9 years.
  • Jupiter, the planet of plenty, continues to favour the sector of your solar chart that rules privacy, spirituality, and spheres of life that is beyond our control - until 16th May, 2023. During this influence, you will seek to expand and grow your spirituality, charity, compassion, and private life, with a sense that you are not truly living or experiencing your life to the fullest. This is a period to sort your attitudes and behaviours that may restrict your future growth.
    + Show Details
    Till 16th May, 2023, Jupiter transits your House XII: Personal life, privacy, and spirituality.
     
    This cycle brings benefits to activities that take place "behind the scenes" or otherwise privately, as well as in the soul. Your perceptions heighten, and in fact, intuition is extremely reliable now. Your ability to make sacrifices for others increases, and you might build your confidence in yourself as you help and support others.
     
    The transit finds you becoming more compassionate, empathetic, and sensitive, or get in deeper touch with these traits. Charity, giving/donating anonymously, volunteering, and helping others without expectation of reward will be most fulfilling during this cycle. Helping others helps you. Work that involves serving others may begin now and bring you much joy!
     
    This particular placement (and transit) is said to offer one spiritual protection. In general, help seems to be there when you need it. You are building or rebuilding your inner faith now. This is a time when you can rid yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deep-seated fears, and deeply-ingrained tendencies towards guilty feelings. You are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and in fact, confronting your fears can be quite pleasurable during this period.
     
    Your dreaming world may be especially rich, lighter, helpful, and more intuitive. Meditation and retreats may be especially useful to you now, as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. Much pleasure and growth might be found in solitude and contemplation. You may pick up New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance during this cycle.
     
    You can be strongly attracted to alternative healing methods for both mind and body. You may be exploring counselling, spiritual, or psychic talents. There could be a source of income related to healing, counselling, or spiritual guidance. For some of you, there can be work on a business or money-making project in relative solitude or privacy. There may also be some sacrifices involved in your personal relationships.
     
    These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once - and you need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.
     
    On the downside, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it's for good - building your faith is the work you are doing now. While your tendency is to play a supportive role to others, if taken too far, you will need to draw some boundaries when it comes to your energy and time. Also, you might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other "glamorous" forms of escape. There can also be some strains on mental and physical health, a feeling of overload with daily affairs or communications, and possible pressures in your work. Difficulties keeping up with daily schedules, which can be (or seem) demanding at these times, can be an issue.
     
    Overall, a seemingly non-eventful period that offers stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well. This is a period to privately relish - particularly of alone time, and perhaps a private relationship or attraction!
     
    The most favourable periods for all of the above matters are when Jupiter is in direct motion (forward-moving) during this cycle. And, the most potent period of this influence is the first month of this approximately 13-month cycle.
  • From 17th May, 2023 onwards, Jupiter brings blessings to the sector of your solar chart that rules individual personality and projected self - for the rest of the year. During this influence, you will seek to enhance and develop your personality, body image, attitude, outlook, finance, and independence, with a panoramic vision of life that opens your eyes to whole new possibilities. This is an extremely rewarding period, and/or an extra-ordinary time to seek a new beginning or fresh start.

    17th May, 2023 onwards, Jupiter transits your House I: Individual personality and projected self.
     
    An extremely fortunate period, this is an exceptionally extraordinary cycle that comes once in every 12 years or so, and brings significant improvements to your immediate environment and self-confidence. You feel considerably freer to be yourself right now, and you are proud of who you are.
     
    The transit finds you greeting life with a fresh, "can-do" attitude. Your optimism and generosity are heightened, and your personality is more obviously expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. You create a distinct first impression on others, and your likability increases manifold. Others tend to accept you more readily - people thoroughly enjoy being around you, not because of what you do or can do, but because of who you are. You are both appreciated and respected, and others tend to be appreciative of the very qualities that come most naturally to you.
     
    You will be eyeing the future now - what happened in the past, is no longer of much importance to you. Events occur that help you to overcome problems that previously seemed challenging or even insurmountable - and furthering your personal ambitions and interests comes more easily during this cycle. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off, and/or good deeds in the past may be handsomely rewarded. This is a time when you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner, as you will seek out a new beginning - a fresh start, of sorts - and your desire to do right will be especially strong. At times, you may feel like the sky is the limit!
     
    These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once - and you need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life, and always watch for overdoing things or carelessness.
     
    This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more "me" time - which is, in fact, long overdue after a period of serving, supporting, and helping others (during Jupiter's previous cycles). However, you might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested.
     
    On the downside, too many individuals tend to waste this marvelous time in boasting and day-dreaming - and exposing oneself towards 'superiority complex'. This cycle also brings a risk of overindulgence and other forms of excessive behavior. A carefree attitude is different than a careless one, and the fine line between the two is definitely something to consider during this cycle. This cycle may also bring endings into your life in order for you to grow, although these are generally easy ones. Any situation, including ailing or bed-ridden dependants, that may be burdening you or restricting your growth might be removed. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, for which you are now enjoying some level of freedom from).
     
    Overall, you have a different perspective on life now, and you are not inclined much to sweat for the small stuffs. Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly.
     
    The most favourable periods for all of the above matters are when Jupiter is in direct motion (forward-moving) during this cycle. And, the most potent period of this influence is the first month of this approximately 13-month cycle, while you may start feeling the surge in your self-confidence from around a fortnight ahead. Notably, the entire cycle has the potential for being (and bring) a relaxed, fortunate, and hopeful time in your life.
  • However, from 5th September, 2023 to 31st December, 2023, when Jupiter is retrograde (backward-moving), your optimism may falter, and you may lack the confidence to surge ahead - especially in matters of individual personality, and representation.

 
Contraction, Challenges, Lessons for 2023
Saturn represents our conscience, moral conviction, and principles. It is the basis of our boundaries, our responsibilities, and our commitments. Saturn's transit restricts the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your limitations along with it. It stays in each sign for around 2 and half years, as it covers the entire zodiac in 29,5 years.
  • Saturn, the planet of rules and strictures, continues to review the sector of your solar chart that rules occupation and calling - until 7th March, 2023. During this influence, you will be compelled to streamline your career, business, professional goals and objectives, ambition, reputation, and public life - facing tests and challenges that strengthen the foundation in these areas.

    Till 7th March, 2023, Saturn transits your House X: Reputation, occupation, and calling.
     
    This cycle challenges your career, reputation, and responsibilities. These are areas of your life that undergoes contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. Results in these areas of your life will not be as forthcoming, or with ease, as they have been in the past.
     
    Your standing in society, and ambitions are in strong focus during this transit. Depending on your age, your career would require important decisions and choices.This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality - and you will be building a secure foundation in your professional or most public life.
     
    You have found yourself in the spotlight, and whatever you have been building is now under review or subject to inspection. This can be a time for receiving recognition and career "rewards". In early adulthood, it can be a time when you truly begin to face your duties as a career person or take on more significant responsibilities. You do not focus on where you are going as much as you focus on where you stand.
     
    This cycle is an eye-opening one - a time when you are working hard, taking on your fair share of duties and responsibilities, and either reaping some of the rewards of your hard work or facing the consequences of poor choices. You become aware of what you have - and haven't - accomplished to date. You are treated to a realistic look at what you've built and achieved. You no longer view your place in the world, your career, and your reputation with rose-colored glasses. It is what it is!
     
    At times you may feel exposed, publicly scrutinized, or under fire in your career during this transit. If this discomfort is great, it may be that you have been holding onto a false image of yourself.
     
    Important projects may come to fruition, and this can be a time for reaping their rewards, but there can be some disappointment now as well if you haven't achieved what you wanted to accomplish. You are indeed more accountable for your choices. Projects that you've been working on behind the scenes or that you've left unfinished might come to fruition during this period, or you could be using them to further your career. You may need to employ some caution with regards to elements from your past, as these might come before the public eye in some way during this cycle.
     
    Events will occur that tests your foundations in these areas your life that require a "back to basics" approach in order to build (or rebuild) a strong foundation. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the cosmos is checking if the foundations are strong. During this period, anything built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests, and fall apart - gone from your life for good. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
     
    You may acquire a higher position now, and you are likely to feel the weight of increased responsibilities that come with it. There can be issues to handle with a parent (more likely the father) or parent figure, or a boss/authority figure in your life.
     
    The end result, as this cycle reaches its climax, there can be more recognition of the efforts you put forth, as well as increased motivation for tackling tasks that you previously felt were monotonous or uninteresting. This can be a fantastic career peak for some.
     
    As things start falling apart in the affected areas of your life, it is felt most strongly in the first year of this cycle that lasts approximately 2.5 years.
  • From 8th March, 2023 onwards, Saturn inspects the sector of your solar chart that rules friends and acquaintances - for the rest of the year. During this influence, you will be compelled to streamline your friendships, group and community involvements, personal dreams, ideals and perspectives - facing tests and challenges that strengthen the foundation in these areas. You may be more discriminating when it comes to making new friends or associations, and feel less energetic in networking/socializing.
    + Show Details
    8th March, 2023 onwards, Saturn transits your House XI: Social activities, friends, and acquaintances.
     
    This cycle challenges your friendships, causes, and wishes. These are areas of your life that undergoes contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. Results in these areas of your life will not be as forthcoming, or with ease, as they have been in the past.
     
    Your friends or group affiliations are in strong focus during this transit. Depending on your age, you are more selective about how you spend your time and with whom you spend your time. This is a grounding energy that gets you back in touch with reality - and there can be some feelings of loneliness experienced now, as it can sometimes be difficult to find what you are looking for.
     
    Events or realizations during this period may have inspired you to question where it is that you are going in your life. Your long-term personal goals come under scrutiny. How you fit in with others, your affiliations with people and groups, and your peers all become serious matters in your eyes. You may conclude that your personal "circle" or your networks are superficial or somehow unsatisfying at this point in your life.
     
    Keeping friendships strong and healthy requires effort. There may be power struggles or concerns about betrayal to deal with. Friends or group affiliations may seem more demanding of your time and energy now, or you might feel stress about how much of yourself you put into your social obligations. There can be strain on a friendship due to increased focus on an intimate relationship for some. You may be more discriminating when it comes to making new friends, or circumstances are such that you spend less energy on networking and involvement in your community or in teams and groups. Existing friendships may experience some tests or trials during this cycle, and one or possibly more friendships may end. Ones that are true, however, will strengthen. This can point to the strengthening of ties with a special friend or group.
     
    You might feel some disdain for the superficial workings of casual friendships, beginning to feel uncomfortable and self-conscious about "going through the motions", doing and saying the right things, and so forth. Alternatively, you might meet someone with whom you establish a serious friendship, or you might become a member of a group or affiliation to which you devote much of your time.
     
    Lending and borrowing to and from friends is generally considered tricky, but can be especially so for you now. This applies not only to money, but also time and energy. Friendships or causes can drain you at times if you are giving too much while ignoring your own needs.
     
    Events will occur that tests your foundations in these areas your life that require a "back to basics" approach in order to build (or rebuild) a strong foundation. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the cosmos is checking if the foundations are strong. During this period, anything built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests, and fall apart - gone from your life for good. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
     
    Weeding out what seems now to be superfluous social associations from your life is very likely at this time as you become more serious about what you want, on a personal level, from your life. You take a hard look at the role you play in others' lives, and you consider exactly what it is that satisfies you and contributes to your happiness, beyond marriage, romance, career, religion, and so forth. At some point through this journey, you should begin to find ways to bring definition and articulation to your innermost wishes and hopes for your personal path. A more solid sense of belonging might be experienced now. You know on whom you can rely, and they know they can rely on you!
     
    You might gain increased responsibilities when it comes to a friend or group affiliation. Some of you could experience a leaner but also more conscientious period for income from a business. Some might take on responsibility for a partner's children. You might decide to contribute to your community in significant, tangible, and practical ways during this transit. There can be nice opportunities to make long-lasting connections. You can have more influence in a group, possibly quite naturally taking the lead. Its a time for making solid plans for your future.
     
    As things start falling apart in the affected areas of your life, it is felt most strongly in the first year of this cycle that lasts approximately 2.5 years.
  • However, from 18th June, 2023 to 4th November, 2023, when Saturn is retrograde (backward-moving), you may review or seek to rectify something that you had previously done, thought, or decided - especially in matters of social activities, friends, and acquaintances.

 
Excitement, Innovation, Independence for 2023
Uranus represents our sudden inspiration, and lightening insights. It is the basis of our innovative thoughts and ideas, our rebelliousness to break free, and our progression. Uranus' transit disrupts the area of your life that it touches (influences), drawing your intuition along with it. It stays in each sign for around 7 years, as it covers the entire zodiac in 84 years.
  • Uranus, the planet of progression, continues to revolutionalize the sector of your solar chart that rules individual personality and projected self - for the entire year. During this influence, you will undergo radical change in your personality and the image you present to the world, while you are embracing change and pushing yourself beyond your normal limits. You are likely to take some risks or innovate in these areas, throughout this lengthy cycle, and the changes may be quite dramatic or erratic or unconventional.
    + Show Details
    For the entire period, Uranus transits your House I: Individual personality and projected self.
     
    This overwhelming long-term influence touches your personality, image, body awareness, and manner - in disruptive, exciting, or surprising ways. And, there may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations, or past conditioning patterns. This is an especially eventful period of your life when you make big changes, especially to areas of your life that have become too routine, or that are lifeless and no longer truly represent you.
     
    Your personality fairly bubbles with bursts of enthusiasm, and it is very likely that you might go through a series of personal makeovers. You will be breaking free from the expectations of others now, not only or even with your style or look, but also with your personality. Changes with the image you project to others, and perhaps your personal style and appearance, take place during this period. For some, they can be radical.
     
    You are far more inspired during this period, and your behavior tends to be more spontaneous or obviously independent. Freedom of personal expression is immensely important to you now, and if you turn a few heads or raise some eyebrows in the pursuit thereof, you don't particularly worry about it!
     
    At the very least, people around you are surprised by your more rebellious and risk-taking nature. This once-in-a-lifetime energy is very difficult to tame or control - so, please do remember to act rather than react.
     
    On the downside, your need for freedom can be so strong that you leave cherished things (or people!) behind. Alienating those close to you may occur now, if you're not careful. Impulsiveness is something to watch out for - while you shouldn't resist change now, but you should avoid entirely impulsive behavior. Rebellion is sometimes necessary - eventually you'll want to feel truly free to be yourself, but you should avoid being overly rebellious or stubborn.
     
    The most potent period of this influence is the first two years of this approximately 7-year cycle.
  • However, from 1st January, 2023 to 22nd January, 2023 and from 30th August, 2023 to 31st December, 2023, when Uranus is retrograde (backward-moving), you may lack the enthusiasm to start or try-out anything new - especially in matters of individual personality, and representation.

 
Change, Purging, Transformation for 2023
The North Node of Moon, often referred as True Node, is a mathematical point that represents our personal "karmic" imbalance. Along with the South Node, it describes our unavoidable fate It is the basis of our life's mission, the drive or purpose of our life - the innate desire for fulfillment that we are drawn to. It is appropriately known as the "Destiny's Call". True Nodes' transit spotlights the area of your life that is calling your name, and steers your life's path accordingly. Eclipses, on the other hand, re-aligns your path - by opening our eyes to a new perspective, and revealing information that was previously unknown or unconsidered.
