New Year’s Intentions for 2023, According to Your Zodiac Sign
By Amelia Quint
A carefully selected New Year’s intention can be a powerful motivator—and when it’s backed by the stars, that’s even better! You’ll have both your own willpower and clarity to push you towards your desire, plus the momentum of the universe to help you achieve it.
In astrology, Jupiter is the planet of growth and can show you areas of opportunity, so we’re able to look to it to find out what doors could be opened for your zodiac sign in 2023. Will you be going after big goals in love, your career, or your spiritual journey? Read on to find out!
Aries | Being yourself is a gift
You’ve already had lucky Jupiter in your sign for five months of 2022—and with six more on the way in 2023, you’re poised to expand far beyond what you’d previously pinned to your vision board. And the great news? It doesn’t require any extra work. All you have to do is be yourself. After that, Jupiter in your money and resources sector means your individuality totally pays off. It’s a huge boost to your confidence, and you deserve it!
Taurus | Try on a new style
With free-spirited Uranus and transformational eclipses in Taurus in 2022, you’ve probably outgrown the past versions of yourself—and with Jupiter in your sign for the better part of 2023, it’s time to try on a new style. Maybe you’ll have a drastic hair transformation to honor the change, or maybe you’ll donate half your wardrobe to charity and start afresh. Whatever you choose, it’ll look amazing on you.
Gemini | Healing doesn’t have to happen alone
Having generous Jupiter in both your social and self-care sectors in the same year might seem contradictory, but who says spending time out and about can’t be nourishing? You’re on course to make lots of new friends, and they won’t just be acquaintances. They’ll be the ones you can open up to about your dreams and who you can call when you’re having a tough day. As long as you balance hangouts with alone time, you’ll love widening your inner circle in 2023.
Cancer | Success is better when it’s a team effort
You’re happy spending time solo, but when you’re surrounded by friends, being at the top feels so much more comfortable—and that’s exactly what 2023 is all about for you. Yes, Jupiter in your career zone means you may achieve some impressive professional victories this year. Still, after it moves into your groups and goals zone in May, you realize that you’re even more motivated when the work is a team effort.
Leo | Experiment to expand
Get ready, because Venus—the love and beauty planet—is in retrograde in your sign this summer, which means it’s time to get creative! You’re already a star, but during this period, you’ll fine-tune what makes you shine and try out a few new moves. Alongside that, lucky Jupiter in your culture and career sectors means you’ll reach an even wider audience in 2023. Whatever you do, don’t rest on your laurels. Experiment, and you’ll get even more applause for your performance.
Virgo | New adventures help heartbreak
Have you ever wanted to jet off and find yourself after a heartbreak or tough life event? This year, the stars are aligned for you to do just that, whether through a literal trip or a strategic retreat. Jupiter in your intimacy zone early on in the year delivers plenty of romance with a side of healing for these colder months. After that, it moves to your exploration sector, where you’ll get the chance to visit parts unknown—whether through travel, study, or self-reflection. It’s a busy itinerary, but you’ll have a great time.
Libra | Open up in your relationships
You’re the most romantic sign of the zodiac, so it’s only natural that relationships would be important to you. In 2023, they’re number one on your priority list. With generous Jupiter in your partnership and intimacy zones, you’ll definitely be feeling the love. Then, a solar eclipse in your sign in the fall means you may undergo a major personal change, but it’s so much easier to do when you feel supported and safe opening up.
Scorpio | Healthy partnerships help you grow
You’re no stranger to personal transformation, and with another eclipse in your sign on the way in 2023, you’re still a work in progress. But with lucky Jupiter in your health sector in the early months, it’ll feel good to put in effort to build habits you know will support that healing and make you stronger. Once it moves into your partnership zone in May, you’ll have plenty of supporters to cheer you across the finish line.
Sagittarius | Find more fun to help you feel better
You’re already the life of the party—and with open-minded Jupiter kicking off the year in your crushes and creativity zone, you get your best ideas when you approach work like it’s play. In fact, once the good luck planet moves into your daily routine sector in May, you could turn a passion project into a full-time gig with ease. Most of all, you realize that you’re so much happier when you’re doing what you love. Prioritize what feels good, and the rest will fall into place.
Capricorn | Home is where your heart is
Your usual work style? Get it done, and feel your feelings later. It’s tempting to put your emotions on pause, but Jupiter in your home and heart sector this winter gives you the time and space you need to fully process your emotions. When it moves into your pleasure zone for the rest of 2023, you’ll be able to put fun back on your schedule. Even better, with heavy Pluto out of your sign from March to early June, you’ll feel so much lighter.
Aquarius | Thoughts and feelings give powerful insights
Your vision of the future is already lightyears ahead of everyone else’s—and with wise Jupiter in your mind and heart sectors, you’re ready to expand it even further. As serious Saturn dips out of your sign for the first time in two-and-a-half years, Pluto steps in for a preview of how you’ll transform in the decades to come. Get ready for brilliant ideas and emotional insights. It’s a lot, but trust your thoughts and feelings to steer you in the right direction.
Pisces | Your ideas are valuable
Last year, lucky Jupiter in your sign helped you upgrade your dreams to be bigger and better than you’d imagined. This year, the stars are aligned for you to actually make them a reality. It moves through your resources and communication sectors to help bring you the cash (and confidence) to ask for what you need to build them. It might feel like a reach, but authoritative Saturn in your sign this spring gives you the gravitas you need to sell it. Go ahead, make your pitch!
