2023 Libra horoscope highlights
Libras will find freedom through the right relationships.
Partnerships are always a priority for you, Libra, but while free-spirited Jupiter roams through Aries until May 16, no one’s clipping your wings. To keep relationships from devolving into a power struggle, fill your shared calendar with active adventures. Novelty releases dopamine, which might be your primary bonding agent this year!
Meanwhile, the lunar North Node continues its tantric trek through Taurus until July 17, luring you into new erotic terrain. Get ready: Your turn-ons may evolve before your eyes, especially once Pluto dips into Aquarius and your fifth house of romance from March 23 to June 11—the beginning of a 20-year cycle. The snug vibes that warmed your heart (and other body parts) for the past fifteen years could suddenly feel like a too-tight suit.
There’s no denying your urges once the karmic South Node lands in Libra from July 17 to January 11, 2025—its first visit here since 2004-06. Developing your personal passions is the quickest way to bringing sexy back…not trying to “fix” your partner or find a new one.
Raise your Libra investment IQ in 2023.
Let your money work hard for you, Libra! With the fateful lunar North Node in your eighth house of investments until July 17, learn all you can about emerging tech markets, cryptocoins and NFTs—yes, even if the bottom seems to have dropped out on these. There could be a few “buy low” opportunities worth leaping on after lucky Jupiter lands in Taurus for a year on May 16. Libras could make a nice profit on the sale of a property, perhaps near the October 28 lunar eclipse.
But your 2023 Libra horoscope calls for you to stick to your budget and keep your sleeves rolled up. On March 7, industrious Saturn lands in Pisces, giving your sixth house of systems and efficiency a workout. Simplify your processes and you’ll see greater profits.
Core strength is the a Libra key.
Shoulder back, core tight! Structured Saturn heads into Pisces this March 7, kicking off three years in your sixth house of healthy routines. The bones, teeth and joints are governed by the ringed taskmaster: all areas that could use extra focus and protection in 2023.
In addition to dental and chiropractic checkups, try using a stability ball as a desk chair or investing in a standing desk. Need to do some emotional healing? When the South Node dips into Libra from July 17 to January 11, 2025, you’ll be ready to push past ancient blocks, perhaps with guidance from therapists, shamans and bodyworkers.
Libras have BFF, will travel!
Global Jupiter swings through Aries until May 16, so embark on an epic winter- or spring-break getaway with a BFF or visit a long-distance amie in her city. Your ruler, social Venus, rolls through your communal eleventh house from June 5 to October 8, boosting your popularity skyward. Don’t forget your ride or dies during Venus retrograde, from July 22 to September 3, which would be the perfect time for a reunion.
With Pluto finishing its tour through your family zone, you may need to support a relative who is aging or going through tough times. Playing caregiver? Make sure you have enough support for yourself during the process.
Your 2023 Libra horoscope, by the planets
Jupiter in Aries and Taurus
Jupiter in Aries:
When expansive Jupiter pivots back into your opposite sign of Aries, it broadens horizons in your seventh house of partnerships until May 16. Roll the dice on anything from a legendary love affair to a booming business alliance. With your risk tolerance elevated, could this be the year when you make things official or extricate yourself from a situationship that doesn’t work for you anymore?
Jupiter in Taurus:
Come May 16, Jupiter plunges into Taurus and the intimate waters of your eighth house. This cycle, which lasts until May 25, 2024, won’t make you desperate to be half of a supercouple. Quite the contrary!
Mars in Gemini
Libras fall in love easily—with people, places, pastimes—so much so that it can be hard to settle on a favorite anything. Good news! In early 2023, there’s zero pressure to drop anchor. Do you instead want to drop out of the rat race for a minute?
Saturn in Pisces
Beginning March 7, orderly, meticulous Saturn lands in Pisces, parking in your sixth house of work, wellness and daily routines until February 13, 2026. For the next three years, how can you integrate fresh systems into your repertoire—and make them stick?
Pluto in Aquarius
On March 23, enigmatic Pluto changes signs for the first time in 15 years, darting forward from Capricorn and your domestic fourth house into Aquarius and your passionate, flamboyant fifth. Although this first transit only lasts until June 11, make no mistake, Libra: these two months will be life altering.
Venus Retrograde in Leo
Novel romantic opportunities will be right at your fingertips between June 5 and October 8. The question is, Libra, how experimental are you willing to be?
Aries North Node
Across the wheel from the Aries North Node, the South Node occupies your sign from July 17, 2023 to January 11, 2025. It helps you “true up” with your goddess-given gifts, the ones you’ve had for as long as you can remember. (And probably before then, too!) How can you (re)discover your superpowers, Libra?
