Wondering about how this upcoming month is going to affect your zodiac sign? You’ve come to the right place. Keep up with me throughout the months of the year. I will be your astrology prodigy!

Astrology has been around for thousands of years, and it used to be vital to people’s religions, everyday tasks, and more. Astrology has more recently been taken up as a hobby to see where people’s “faith” and “destiny” will lie at certain times.

Maddie Griffis, a senior, gathered her thoughts and kindly shared that she thinks that astrology is “fun to follow!” However, she does not constantly keep up with her sign, but it is still fun to see posts about it. Another senior, Caroline Karls, stated that she “loves astrology.” She has a couple of jewelry pieces with zodiac signs incorporated as well. On the contrary, some people do not follow astrology. Science and chemistry teacher Michael Radloff is not the most firm believer: “I do not believe in that stuff. Things being determined from stars and planets millions of miles away is silly.” It is okay to not be an avid follower of astrology! It has been proven that reading about your zodiac sign can be at the very least entertaining if the information is not taken to heart. With that in mind…

Now is the time to reflect on things that have gone right and wrong this year. What did you do to accomplish the good, and what did you fail to do that caused the bad? The biggest thing everyone should do to prepare for the new year is to look deep inside themselves and sift through hidden motives to determine whether they are truly beneficial or not.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

Happy birthday, Capricorns! This month may be filled with chaos. This can mean positive or negative chaos, but the feeling of being overwhelmed may be present regardless. Even when everything appears to be working against you, progress is being made. Remember that progress can be slow but beneficial.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

A year with many changes is coming up for you, Aquarius. A common theme for this month is that it is going to feel fairly slow-paced. There may be some trouble with romantic antics or creativity. Do not let it frustrate you, it is okay to have these bumps in the road. The biggest thing for Aquarius is getting closure. There are going to be some things from the past that come back to you. Reach back and find the closure you need.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

This is going to be a great month for you, Pisces. So many new opportunities will come your way, and they may be just the ones you have been begging for. Keep your eyes peeled for new opportunities related to larger goals and don’t hold yourself back. Your gut feeling is usually right, especially with dilemmas regarding your future.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

Beautiful, fiery Aries, this is a new chapter for you. You are starting fresh, and things that were constantly dragging you down in the past months will soon evaporate into your careless thoughts. Big miracles, expansion, and growth are illuminating your path into 2023.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

This year will start out slowly; this is the hardest month of the year for you, Taurus. Your big glowing and shining months are nearing spring, so this is the bulk of slow energy. Your intuition will grow stronger, and you will feel the energy strengthen by the day and lead you into positivity and new beginnings. Bear with this slow pace because things will soon look up for you.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Money, money, money. Money is the biggest milestone here, Gemini. There will be big adjustments surrounding your financial stability. Just because Christmas has passed does not mean that you should blow all of your money! Take care not to let the adrenaline from the new taste of positivity drown you out.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Cancers, anxiety is not a new emotion for you. It’s something you’ve had to adjust to a lot. But the good news is that this feeling will soon depart after months of being taunted. Karma and long-needed stillness will fill your month.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

Friendships may have been very rocky lately, or perhaps parent-child relationships. Luckily, with Mars retrograding on January 6th you will feel these issues slowly diminish. There will be delays in approaching goals, but be strong-willed, and do not let your fire burn out.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

The biggest focus for you, Virgos, will be relationships. This month will be consumed by your interpersonal relationships in a great and beneficial way. Harness your energy for new or current careers as well, things will soon look up in that aspect. Overall, this is going to be a good month for you all.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

Exciting energy awaits you! Radiance and luck are flowing out of each day of the month for you, Libras. Jupiter’s retrograde will cause your current relationships to thrive or cause all the single people out there to cross paths with their soul mates! What a lovely month coming up!

Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

January 2023 will bring a lot of ups and downs for you, Scorpios. You will receive the blessings of Jupiter, the planet of great growth in finances. On the other hand, you may feel a stagnation in trust with people close to you. Keep your eye out for sincerity.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

Big shifts surrounding your personal life await you, Sagittarius. Joy and luck are brewing in the sectors of passionate relationships with oneself. You will find yourself growing in a positive direction and moving away from past traumas and troubles that have been lingering in your mind. Have faith in yourself.


As the new year unfolds, each zodiac sign can expect a unique set of challenges and opportunities. Astrology may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who find enjoyment and inspiration in reading about their zodiac sign, it can provide a sense of guidance and self-reflection.

Whether you believe in the stars’ influence or not, taking a moment to contemplate the year ahead and set intentions for personal growth and improvement can be a valuable exercise for anyone. So, whether you’re a devoted astrology follower or just a casual observer, let the stars guide you on your journey through 2023, and may it be a year of positive transformations and fulfilling experiences for all!
