2022 is on its way out, and it’s time to welcome 2023!
For many of us, 2022 has been a challenging year, but it has been a year where our challenges have taught us more about who we are and our direction in life.
Through these challenges, we discover more about ourselves—our true selves, our aspirations, our hopes, and our dreams. For many, the obstacles we have faced serve to make us stronger. Staying in our comfort zone is something most of us would prefer, but growth cannot be found inside the comfort zone. It can only be found outside of it.
In Chinese astrology, 2022 was the Year of the Tiger. Tiger years are often wrought with challenges and upheaval, much like the sign itself. 2023 is the Year of the Rabbit, which will prove to be a deeply spiritually transformative year for many.
The Rabbit in Chinese astrology correlates with the sign of Pisces. As a Mutable Water sign, Pisces is the pinnacle of the zodiac, which encompasses Universal, unconditional love, deep spirituality, and a deep understanding that everyone and everything is interconnected.
Hence, spiritual evolution is big on the agenda this coming year.
But as with all types of transition periods, it’s never an easy process. This is a year when confidence will be a huge aspect for all signs. It is in 2023 that we will begin to discover the true degree of our confidence, and our path will depend on how much we are willing to embrace it.

This is big news for us on both an individual and collective level, and through this transit, our confidence will shine through. Pluto is the ultimate planet of transformation, and when in the sign of Aquarius, we are looking at huge shifts individually and globally.
