The Power of Astrology: As Above, So Below [Your 2023 Astrological Map]
Hello! Natalie Viglione here, and I wanted to share my research for how this year of 2023 will go when we tap into the Celestial Energies and how this energy is affected in our realm... I would never call myself an "expert astrologer," but I pay attention to the cosmos and am a scientist and researcher by nature. This guide weaves the common threads of many different sources and seeks to see through the veil.
I have followed astrological goings-on since I was in my early 20s (so over 20 years now), and while I would not call myself an expert astrologist, I am a scientist and researcher by nature. Rarely would I trust one source or even two sources in this area of expertise because many times, the interpretations offered cloud the truth of what’s happening with the stars (aka planets, aka Celestial Beings).
In this topic, I seek to look at MANY sources and then bring the common threads through. For this, I chose varying astrologers and different sites and then painted a larger picture of the massive transformation that this wonderful Celestial Being we call Earth (or Gaia) is going through with all of us living beings connected to this evolution that is continuing big time into 2023.
The time of great shifts is upon our lands . . . commencing in 2012 as an end to the old, and this all will continue for some time. Intuitively, anyone connected to the energies of All That Is has felt this and feels this greatly! Every year we will see more and more commence, so there will never (THANKFULLY) be a return to what used to be...
WHY ASTROLOGY IS POWERFUL!
Astrology as science: It's important to note that astrology is a profound science of subtle energy interactions between celestial bodies (stars and what we label as planets), and humans are a microcosm of this via our physical body (matter) and our subtle bodies: ethereal, astral, mental and causal.
It is FAR MORE than most can imagine. This little snapshot using it in this way to guide our lives is actually the TINIEST aspect of what these energies should be used for. The higher dimensions and ETs -- the ancients as we can call them -- have used this as THE underlying science to build and create technologies so far advanced that few would believe it if you talked about it. Which this world has seen in recent times only in secret but will see again (in the future). The pyramids are one such example that was strategically built using the energies of celestial bodies--the frequencies of the cosmos!
There are psycho-mental aspects to humanity, and our health and evolution of personality get influenced by the subtle influences of the cosmos that are characteristics of the great planets/stars. But here is something to remember: we are NOT at the mercy of these movements and the energies of these celestial beings/bodies. When the energies are unfavorable to us, we can overcome them through superior discernment, knowledge, and, most of all, our will! This -- discernment, knowledge, will -- is the basis and foundational aspects of magick.
IT BEGAN IN 2020 ...
It all kicked off in a big way in 2020, as many of us are aware that followed the stars and frequencies of that time…
The theme we can’t ignore is that in 2020, cosmically, Saturn met Pluto in Capricorn (this was a Saturn-Pluto conjunction), which started the CRUMBLING of the 3rd density (the old systems) as this conjunction of star energies that is about the dismantling of systems. The enslavement time on this Celestial Being, Earth, (and its beings within and on), is ending… but not without some bumps in the road and not without some of those growing pains that always happen in massive transformations (any of us that has done a lot of spiritual inner work know that great transformation is rarely simple!).
KEY THEMES OF 2023
Thematically these major themes are:
- The continual ending of old corrupt control systems
- Moving into your pure, authentic Self
- Shifts around work (career, etc.)
- Deep healing via seeing all aspects of you (shadow work) is the continual ask
- Waking up around the control of materialism
- Take off those rose-colored glasses, or they'll be ripped off for you...any rose-colored glasses that people wear will be ripped off to see whole truths (and nothing but the truths...)
A ROADMAP FOR 2023 ENERGIES
In 2023, Saturn LEAVES Aquarius to enter Pisces: Pisces is the last sign, so this signifies an end to a long season, the last ‘phase’ of winter, so to speak. Let’s look at the bigger picture: The end to a looooong season (100,000+ years) of a “dark hold” that has come in and out of our lands; it’s what we can call “evil forces,” and this hold is being torn away. These factions that have held this planet hostage can no longer enslave this world; therefore, all the systems are crumbling. This is making way for a new density to be birthed, and what this means is that we are moving into the 4th density as this Celestial Being (what we call planet) will go from 3rd density to 4th density, and many of us are going for that ride.
Saturn enters Pisces on March 7th and will send frequencies into our lands that will ensure you’re committing to more spiritual discipline(s)/doing some deep healing work.
Collectively, Saturn in Pisces is about what’s mentioned above--the dissolution of old, outdated systems that no longer serve the higher evolutionary pathway chosen by Earth and the entire system.
2023 will also be about walking paths that promote the FULL expression of your authenticity.
Deeper shadow work (integrating all aspects of Self multidimensionally from lower to higher aspects or frequencies) will be required. Jupiter magnifies the energy of Wounded Healer Chiron in the early spring and winter of 2023.
Jupiter conjuncts Chiron from February 5-April 12 (exact on March 11), which is about expanding everything that it touches; Jupiter will magnify the need to face, process, and integrate shadow realms. Focusing on healing the past now, is how to be set up for success!
Jupiter squares Pluto April 25-June 12 (exact on May 17). In this is a rare square between Jupiter in Taurus and Pluto in Aquarius; it is expected to magnify our thirst for power and success, so mark this on your calendar to avoid ruthless behavior stepping on other people to get to the top during this time and go within instead of going “out there” in this frequency.
Jupiter has a lot more that it will be bringing in this year. This Star enters Taurus on May 15, and it has been called the “planet of abundance and aspiration,” so it will bring blessings to that Taurus-ruled area of our charts, smoothing out any issues that presented themselves during the Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle.
Jupiter sextile Saturn May 12-July 18 & December 2-December 31st, and this sextile between Jupiter in Taurus and Saturn in Pisces (exact on June 19), is one of the most positive astral connections of 2023, helping create the stability and growth that has lacked in previous years (WOO HOO, right?!).
Another rarity is that Jupiter conjuncts the North Node of Destiny May 11-June 21 (exact July 1) with Jupiter’s expansive influence gets magnified during this rare period of time, and this will support financial advancement in new ways and steady growth for every zodiac sign. Did someone say NEW?
Pluto is a powerful Star of energies from May 1 – October 10th; this is retrograde to watch in 2023. Pluto will toggle between Aquarius and Capricorn, and so this is giving us a sneak peek into the collective themes that will remain active for the next 20 years! (Yes, we should pay attention to this!) Pluto also enters Aquarius from March 23-June 10th, and there is no other planet-sign combination that screams “power to the people” like Pluto in Aquarius. Big shifts towards a fairer future can begin now if there is a collective push towards a shared goal of ridding the Earth of the factions that control and manipulate (UM... that deserves an F-YEAH!)
Throughout the year, the Mercury retrogrades are all in Earth signs, and what this means for us is that the frequencies of this will bring transformation regarding the realm of materialism (material possessions and the way people make, save, and spend money will be seriously challenged). So, are you seeking a new way to serve or create? This is THE year to make that happen, as energies will require this. It kicks off in the 2023 Spring; the Mercury retrograde in Taurus kicks off the reassessing of “financial situations,” bringing access to exciting ideas for those who seek guidance within.
Summertime... within the Summer, Venus in Leo means that more and more people that aren’t in aligned relationships will seek more freedom and so be aware of those aspects. If you're aware, you can ensure that drama doesn’t blow up, but rather you can make changes as needed in a kind way for all involved when changes start to shift.
From June 17 – November 4th of this year, Saturn entering Pisces on March 7th means that this is dissolving the old structures of our lives (and the old density... as above, so below), as we talked about above. During the retrograde, this process of dissolution will align people that choose to do it with their true paths.
Say goodbye to the “rose-colored glasses” syndrome, June 30 – December 6th, Neptune retrograde means those who have been hiding from seeing the truth, blinded by the silly influence of the planet of materialism/fantasy, will have the rose-colored glasses pulled (NAY, ripped!) off at some point during this retrograde. If you're a truthseeker, like me, you will see much of what you wished for many years ago! A good balance will be about becoming more spiritual and embracing the positive energies around a person’s life.
North Node enters Aries, and the South Node enters Libra July 17th, so starting in the Summer, destiny has a new face. From July 17 to January 11, 2025, the frequencies in our Solar System, as it spirals and evolves, will ask us to embrace independence and a deeper sense of authenticity. That's the universe code for BE WHO YOU TRULY ARE, no more masks, no more BS... just the raw, real YOU!
ANOTHER POWERFUL YEAR
So, as you can see, it’s another year filled with the ask for all to do MORE inner work (no one can hide!), deeper healing in all ways, and as this relates to the Collective (meaning all persons that affect ALL other things). Because, the truth is, there is nothing but connection between all things—flora, fauna, Earth, and humans (to the Cosmos and All That Is)!
To support this year of massive transformation and rare periods of influence from the Stars, we will all be asked to let go of the old in all ways, heal, and TAKE OUR POWER BACK in bigger ways than EVER previously done before!
There is a calling for more and more people to learn how to truly serve others on the positive pathway for a Higher Good for ALL things of this Earth and in this timeline. (OR, people can also choose the other path, the negative path of service to self. Either way, it’s a choice that has to be made).
Maybe this will resonate with you...I created a program to help you leverage the Star Energies of 2023, head on over to Disrupt Now Program (which is another brand that I run) to explore the Tap Into Your Magick program... Check that out here
