Happy New Year! I’m just sitting here in Santa Fe, waiting to see who’s playing at JazzFest in New Orleans this Spring, the line-up is about to be released. Other than fantasizing about a Spring break, I’m thinking of what neat place in Nature I might go to write this year’s psychic horoscopes. (Two messages already came for Capricorn and Cancer during the last full moon, I’ll post them below.)
The 2023 predictions here are from the posts I did between December 2022 and the first few days of the new year. I’ll send them off now as Part 1 of the 2023 newsletter, and Part 2 with horoscopes is slowly materializing. What with Mercury and Mars retrograde, is my excuse, but Mars just went direct today, the planet of masculine energy and power, so it’s time to deliver!
May you have a year full of happy surprises and unexpected new love,
2023 is a year to take action, to not wait for the perfect time, and to be diligent. Keep up your centering and strengthening practices. Steady as you go, to get somewhere new and good.
Word of the Year: “Abrupt” The tables turn, reversals of circumstances are commonplace. There are reversals of fortune, changes of fate, and divorce rates climb. When is an “abrupt change of fortune” a welcome event? Individuals step back abruptly from whatever brink they’re on and abyss they’re staring into; in 2023 they begin a steady climb to regain their footing on higher ground.
2023 Image: A vulture comes down to pick off all that’s dead in 2023, as if a lot dies, and metaphorically speaking, (so do) a lot of past structure whether it’s a government or a marriage…whatever needs to be done with and cleared from the playing field.
NEW COVID UPDATE: 2023 is the last year we are so defenseless against Covid, before new knowledge helps us do battle. 2024 looks better. Economic destruction impact is underestimated; big changes in the workforce due to Covid. A Covid strain could change to make it more airborne.
NEW: FLYING STILL PROBLEMATIC: Fleeting psychic thought, hope it’s wrong: The airline industry continues to experience disruptive issues for 2-3 months.
January 1st Circle: The insights that came in my circle today were not personal, but visions about the collective in 2023:
In the directions January 1st: There can be large-scale losses of life, and a lot of people dying at once, but an actual world war isn’t showing up. Also not showing up are powerful factions actually winning, i.e. Putin winning or Zelensky winning, or either Good or Evil winning.
A mitigating force to the destructive ones in full swing is the power of some peoples’ minds. It’s a time when powerful solution-bringers and their combined knowledge combat current problems.
It is very, very hard to see what’s really taking shape and happening in the United States. There are powers behind powers battling it out. In the world in some places, it feels like something evil has moved into the infrastructure – an evil force is in place or in power.
Winnowing goes on in business, when only those whose value makes them relatively bullet-proof are safe when it comes to a faltering economy. On the plus side, this time spawns many new entrepreneurs and for others, chances to get more education and perhaps change direction. Take advantage if you’re free to explore.
As usual, there are big differences between messages about the collective direction of things, and what shows up as what individuals are likely to experience… and this year the spiritual guidance seems to point out peoples’ tendency to take a path of being more responsible to themselves. People are more realistic about their needs and not so driven by outer pressure. There’s more awareness of the value of taking breaks, playing, socializing, and not-doing. This is in conflict with the ongoing “get back to the office” campaign in government and big business.
2023 Pictograph Update
Pictograph Explication: New Year’s Eve Update, December 31st.
I felt like I didn’t completely capture the meaning of “too much sun” in the original explication posted in my December 2022 newsletter, see below. The message also fits the description of a solar phenomenon, when the sun goes from benign to being disruptive and damaging. or ”…too much sun.” A big dose of sun could be a significant solar flare or storm.
The message “Experiment!” fleshed out: In 2023 you absolutely don’t want to be judging yourself for what you feel like doing – and you might feel like taking a break. It’s a year to trust your feelings and accept what you want – to not be afraid of failure, to respect your creative process, and try whatever you want to try. First-hand experience beats everything.
It also means you might try things that don’t work, or you’re finding out what doesn’t work, and that’s gotta be okay and helpful to find out. People are generally pragmatic and realistic and tend to become more responsible to themselves this year.
The Inner World: A naturally-felt priority is self-expression and creativity in 2023. Expressing yourself creatively – making the life you want – is especially rewarding now.
Free Energy Down the Line?: The December pictograph prediction mentions a “breakthrough in solar tech” that makes it more viable. (When I saw the news about a breakthrough in nuclear fusion, it felt like that was the link to solar energy’s viability.)
“Chastised”: These small cap brown letters show the small-cap kind of place people are in (except for the red ‘d’ at the end that signifies Democrats being energized) People are more self-aware of the lessons they’ve learned. Delusions of grandeur are down, accepting what’s real is up.
To add to these pictograph predictions, the pictograph explication below from last month’s December 2022 newsletter has different messages:
“Chastised” is about people facing the consequences of their actions, karma – U.S. rioters and politicians getting sentenced, Mother Nature teaching us hard lessons about squandered resources… people subdued by what they’ve wrought. The upside of “chastised” is that there’s an “I’m wiser now” sense to people now, and they’re more pragmatic in 2023. Democrats are motivated and energized.
Individuals, especially the 2nd half of the year, are better able to free themselves up for whatever comes next. What’s advised is to explore and experiment in your life in 2023.
There’s an out-of-control feeling about global warming and the heating up of the planet.
There could be a significant breakthrough in solar energy that makes it more viable. “
2023 Psychic Astrology Highlights
Jupiter enters Aries December 20th: The downside: This energy enables the self-righteous, the war-mongerers, and the hard right. People with boundary issues can’t keep them. The upside: Significant collaboration on complex problems happen between giant entities. The sheer might and the technical knowhow to get down to details combines to make progress with big impacts felt later.
Mercury Rx in Capricorn December 29- January 18th: A great time to put the finishing touches on new marketing campaigns, works in progress, and organizing projects. The organization of your day so you’re fitting in what’s important is an excellent focus. You’ll easily see now what doesn’t work and will be able to root it out.
Pluto in Aquarius, Innovation Moves Center Stage: (from the December 2022 newsletter) “In the U.S. and countries in surprising places, brilliant new leaders with bold ideas emerge. This is a sign of Pluto moving into Aquarius beginning in 2023, when according to the stars, societies move oppressive structures, to innovation being what forms the structure. Social structures that depend on being able to control others are out, being co-creationists with others and the Universe is in. Pluto is in Aquarius for the next twenty years.”
Global and Local Predictions
People Think Local: Individuals can go from trying to stop global warming to goals that have more immediate results, impacting their lives closer to home and their community. People are more pragmatic and realistic about their goals. Many go into teaching and somehow more practical subjects are being taught.
Prioritize Kids in 2023: The most impactful and valuable focus for government and organizations at any level are services for the young. They need to be provided with a safe place where they can interact playfully and as well with their imagination – building things, making things and learning things.
Real Local: Santa Fe does fine in 2023. In the near future, promoting the music festivals and art and cultural events will pay off. The educational experiences available here, plus opportunities to be creative, will inspire more people to come here.
A lot of People Sober Up: There’s always a big difference between messages about the collective direction of things, and what shows up as what individuals are likely to experience on their personal journey. This year the spiritual guidance seems to point out peoples’ tendency to take a path of being more responsible to themselves… taking their life more seriously and doing things more effectively. People are more realistic about their needs and not so driven by professional achievement and ego-needs. There’s more awareness of the value of taking breaks, playing, being with like-minded others, and not-doing. This is in conflict with the ongoing “get back to the office” campaign in government and big business.)
Surprise Attack: With a mighty lunge and a snap like the jaws of a lion, a world power roars into action to grab power while it can. (Sounds like China/Taiwan.)
Worldwide Turbulence: There are various wars brewing, plus Nature is boiling over. Volcanoes go off beginning in February. What to make of the turbulent and boiling waters of 2023? Stay sober and responsible to navigate them! Resilience is tested, strength is gained, and people adapt. Stay flexible for success in 2023.
Think Before You Speak: The earth isn’t the only thing boiling over. Stress causes people to lash out, especially while Jupiter is in Aries and Mercury is retrograde in the beginning of the year.
Provocative 2023: People are provoking, countries are provoking, and what’s coming to life and also feeling out of control are Nature’s killing machines; it is insane to provoke biology by trying to bring ancient viruses to life in labs. There’s enough risk with whatever gets dug up by melting ice due to global warming.
Brrr: There will be more “unusual” cold spells like Winter 2022.
Empty Cupboards: We run out of stuff in 2023, storerooms are empty. It can be water we run out of in some places, grain in others, but storerooms are strikingly bare. Sometimes people are asked to give more freely than other times. In 2023, the world will be needier than ever, and poverty a much greater problem. People respond with grace and more generosity this year.
Reality Check from Science in 2023: The statistics come in, research to the rescue! We need to change the script pronto! New facts make people act now to save the planet’s diminishing life and resources. Landmark legislation is proposed.
Good News from the Stars: The New Year’s planets signal creative and practical innovations to come, and government programs proposed that actually address the need for change.
This is the last batch of 2023 general predictions left to be posted, mostly the left out
messages from the Winter Solstice December 21, 2022 and a couple of others I found, (very messy writing process).
Projects started around the Winter Solstice 2022 (3rd week of December) attract needed help.
Exercise from the New Moon in Capricorn on Goals and Success: Pick just 3 things that seem essential for personal success. Figure a way to do something about at least one of them almost daily through action.. Don’t spread yourself thin; remind yourself of only 3 important-for-satisfaction personal goals. There is a great sense of fulfillment that comes from completing things this year.
The Speaking Stones New Year’s Eve 2022: The stones show a lot of workarounds in 2023, meaning creative solutions are more the foundation of the year than catastrophes. First people can clearly see what doesn’t work and what needs to be cleaned up, but that’s just the first step in creating a new and better situation.
People on the main stages of the world don’t get to the place they want to, so the Russian war on Ukraine could still go on.
There’s a distinct “before and after” about the potential of free energy. Before free energy, we’re all focused on conflicts with each other. . After free energy, we feel more connected to the universe. Important positive developments are put in place through creative and innovative solutions, but we don’t see the results yet this year.
New Messages ,January 3rd 2023
Children Born Now: What kind of people are being born now? “Poets! Poets are born, poets are reincarnated; old souls break out of their sleep to don the clothes of Everyman, until they’re needed. New cultural leaders both emerge in 2023 and are being born around this time – under the influence of the latter, future culture becomes wiser.
A Conversation with Aliens: (Me summing up what seemed to be messages from Outer Space Beings) “Ahoy there! People from outer space! You don’t see us coming out of our fog for 5 years!” Translation: “the fog “is everything that keeps us short-sighted about our common goals, divided and at war, with destructive ecological practices. People are going to try everything that doesn’t work…crazies in the government like Santos, polarization still going strong.
The message from Outer Space Beings is that we don’t come out of it for years and in the meantime, we try a lot of things that don’t work.
Changing Relationship with Death: Today’s population which has a generally uncomfortable relationship with death, will get a lot more used to it in the next 4 years, and this is part of how people collectively become more understanding and accepting of death.
“Emptyness” is a future theme. There are new battles to face, psychologically. Mental health and well-being services will get more experimental.
Personal Growth Challenge: We are in Nature’s rock tumbler, and what causes friction within us gets exposed and “worked on.” Rumi has a neat poem about welcoming all inner conflicts as a chance to have a crack at mastering them. Here’s something to try: You can ask yourself to inwardly to come up with a more polished response to a particular frustration. Your inner guidance is likely to give you an answer. It will be one that promotes harmony and allows you to be unbothered.
Here are two stray horoscope messages, invoked by the recent full moon in Cancer; I’ll probably add something else to them in the Part 2 edition:
Capricorn 2023: The full moon in Cancer is January 6th, and those born around that time will have a diverse plateful of experiences, karmic encounters, and chances to step back and try choosing peace over power. Family is important; participating more in community feels fulfilling, too.
Cancer 2023:” OMG!” said the Cancer full moon babies, “are these things really happening?” Powerful changes for Cancerians willing to go where fate points, and your imagination will help you see how you’ll like it: Try this! Draw a picture of where you want to go – use anything…symbols, stick figures, words, that depict what it’s like when you’ve got what you want.
