You’re a strong-willed, determined fixed water sign, Scorpio, and you’ve been insisting that you can do things by yourself since you were little. And while your amazing personal power remains intact in 2023, there might also be some times when you have to rely on others to get the job done. Mars, your powerful co-leader (the other is Pluto) spends the start of the year in a retrograde cycle traveling with intelligent air sign Gemini, then goes direct in mid-January but stays in Gemini until it transitions into fellow water sign Cancer at the end of March.
This planet’s extended stay in your regeneration and transformation zone gives you some real opportunities to grow as a person. Your curiosity blossoms now, so use your advanced investigative and research skills to get to the heart of the things that matter most to you.
Revitalizing Pluto stays steady in Capricorn until late in March when it transitions into innovative Aquarius for a brief three months (from the start of May to mid-June). The planet is retrograde from the start of May to mid-October. With this pairing, be aware of the transformations that are taking place around you and find ways to contribute positive actions on a global scale.
