2023 Aries horoscope for love, career & money, wellness and friends & family. Plus how the major planetary transits will affect you.
Brand new you! The first half of your 2023 Aries horoscope is all about reinventing yourself, as you kick off a new 12-year chapter of your life. Out with the old: Refresh everything from your image and style to what you do for a living. Money is a big focus in the second half of the year. You could get a nice pay bump, but be careful not to spend it all in one place. Stay open to unexpected work opportunities, possibly a job with travel or relocation.
From July 2023 onward, you’ll feel an urgent need to follow your calling. A key relationship will need to be renegotiated so you have room to “do you.” Making sacrifices for your sweetie or taking one for the team is great to a point, but not at the expense of your own dreams. Be mindful of the friends you invite into your circle this spring and summer; not all of them will have pure intentions, no matter how they advertise themselves.
Aries will be lucky with: Independent pursuits, solo stardom, money and work
Aries will be challenged with: Healing from past wounds, setting healthy boundaries in your relationships

2023 Aries horoscope highlights
Love is “all or nothing” for Aries in 2023.
Soulmate or bust? High-stakes, high-intensity loving is on deck for Rams while the karmic South Node rolls through Scorpio until July 17.
On May 5, the Scorpio lunar eclipse could cement a long-term bond or break it apart (at least for this lifetime).
Whatever you decide, you won’t be at a loss for summer lovin’! Ardent Venus sashays through Leo from June 5 to October 8, serving peak romantic experiences and passionate playtime. While Venus is retrograde from July 22 to September 3, you could reconnect to “the one that got away” or finally sort out drama with your plus-one.
Peaceful balance is restored once the karmic lunar South Node shifts into Libra on July 17 and helps you negotiate your needs. That sweet serenity could lead you straight down the aisle before January 11, 2025.
Aries could have overnight success this year!
Get ready for prime time! Maximizer Jupiter blazes a trail through Aries until May 16 increasing your visibility.
That’s not all! The destiny-driven North Node will visit Aries for the first time in nearly two decade from July 17 to January 11, 2025. Rich career opportunities are available all year, whether you’re expanding your role within an organization or entering a cutting-edge field.
Move ahead decisively, but don’t rush through formalities. Jupiter can bring overnight success but it can also sweep you into raw deals. Spend conservatively and make a budget for legal counsel if contracts are involved.
Get ready for a cash influx when Jupiter heads into money-earning Taurus for a year on May 16!
Detox, de-stress and kick those nasty habits, Ram.
Ready, set, de-stress! Heavy-hitting Saturn moves into Pisces on March 7, starting a three-year-journey through your twelfth house of subconscious healing and detoxification.
Aries already have a finely tuned nervous system, but you’ll be ultra-sensitive to triggers that rattle your anxiety. An elimination diet can help you identify foods that may be fueling that fire. Edgier Aries may find support through plant-based microdosing.
When Jupiter heads into tactile Taurus, incorporate bodywork and try somatic therapy that combines psychological and physical healing.
Family needs more “Aries time” in 2023.
The year is bookended by a pair of full moons in family-focused Cancer, putting cherished bonds in the spotlight. A child or an older relative may require more care, which could shift matters under your roof. Some Aries may be ready for a total relocation, which could feel both blessedly overdue and bittersweet.
With transformational Pluto weaving between dutiful Capricorn and experimental Aquarius, you’ll need to strike a balance between supporting your peeps and exploring new friendships. Get involved in groups centered around altruism and activism.
Your 2023 Aries horoscope, by the planets
Jupiter in Aries and Taurus
Jupiter in Aries:
You started hosting the beneficent planet on December 20, 2022 and will be in its good graces until May 16, 2023. But how can you pursue your passions without burning out?
Jupiter in Taurus:
From May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024, Jupiter ambles through Taurus, highlighting your stable second house. As your attention shifts to money and security, how will you know if the ideas you’ve cooked up are winners?
Mars in Gemini
Your ruling planet, Mars, has been retrograde in Gemini and your third house of communication since October 30, 2022. Holding back isn’t really your fiery sign’s style, but with Mars in the time-out chair for the latter part of last year, you’ve been hesitant to speak freely.
Good news! The galactic gag order lifts on January 12, 2023, as your red-hot ruler resumes direct motion and barrels through Gemini until the early part of Aries season, on March 25, 2023. How will you speak your truth now?
Saturn in Pisces
Beginning March 7, 2023, boundary-hound Saturn retreats into Pisces and your solitary, spiritual twelfth house until February 13, 2026. This circuit, which only comes around every 29.5 years, is like a three-year artist’s residence.
Your imagination is stirred and you channel all sorts of divine inspiration. Industrious Saturn’s presence makes this an opportune period for honing your creative gifts and turning them into something tangible. What will you do?
Pluto in Aquarius
You may need to call in some favors near March 23, 2023, when powerhouse Pluto weaves out of Capricorn (your tenth house of status) and into Aquarius (your eleventh house of teams) for the first of three loops.
The question is: Who actually has your back, Ram? Surprising developments may emerge. Keep your mind—and your eagle eyes—wide open while Pluto passes through Aquarius until June 11.
Venus Retrograde in Leo
From June 5 to October 8, Venus rolls out a long red carpet and struts through Leo, giving juice to your fifth house of glamour, fame and unbridled self-expression. Fortunately, Aries, you feel right at home in the spotlight. And during this passage, you’ll have zero problems soaking up the attention!
If one of your trailblazing projects is ready for a big reveal, put it out there before mid-July. From July 22 to September 3, la love planet pivots retrograde—a cycle that comes around every 18 months.
Aries North Node
On July 17, 2023, the fateful lunar North Node returns to your sign for the first time since June 2006. During this 18-month cycle, the world thrums at your vibrational frequency. It’s a “call to action” to step into your authority and pursue your next epic passion. What will that be?
