#Goals. You have them: short term, long term. Moving the needle on them? Well, that can seem overwhelming.
But what if you approached them in smaller bites? The AstroTwins’ new coaching program, Launchpad, helps you “microdose” your way to success.
Like a lot of people, you probably set new year’s resolutions when the ball dropped on 2023, just like you did last year and the year before and…you get the point.
But it’s not long before you, er, drop the ball on those resolutions…and it’s not your fault. In a study published in Forbes, just 11 percent of people kept their resolutions beyond six months! (If you crushed your goals, congratulations. You’re one of the few!)
If you’re looking for another way to achieve your dreams than sheer willpower or pithy inspo mantras on Instagram, consider Launchpad, the new coaching program from The AstroTwins.
In the Year of the Water Rabbit, grow by leaps
The Year of the Water Rabbit began at the Aquarius new moon on January 22, 2023. Although the Year of the Rabbit comes from Chinese astrology, Rabbit years in Western astrology are ruled by planet Neptune.
- Neptune’s themes are creativity, empathy, spirit and fantasy, which we’ll all feel this year.
- This Rabbit year’s element is water, which can be serene abundant, creative and intuitive (good for career goals) and affectionate (good for love goals).
How the Year of the Rabbit translates to “microdosing” goals
What does the Year of the Water Rabbit mean for your dreams and goals, whether they be love, career, health and happiness? It helps to understand how if you try our vision board exercise (before you say “forget it, not another vision board!” this one requires no scissors or glue!)
How to “fill in” each square of Bunny Bingo to begin manifesting, and taking action on, your 2023 goals. Try this exercise and then consider taking it to the next level with Launchpad. Registration closes February 5, but your Bunny Bingo vision board can be created anytime!
What is your most audacious idea? Something you’ve been afraid to say aloud? Imagine it and put it on paper!
Astro tip: Tap into abundant Jupiter in trailblazing Aries until May 16, 2023. This gives you the can-do attitude and desire to go after what you want.
“Binky” (the power of playfulness)
Visualize your victory leap. Start from the end and work your way backwards. Use this as a motivator to grow and take risks.
Astro tip: The destiny-driven North Node returns to Aries on July 17, 2023, for the first time in 18 years! This transit invites us to put a personal dream front and center. If it sounds like a stretch to achieve this, find comfort knowing this transit lasts until January 11, 2025!
This is about listening for inspiration, ideas and clarification. Not hearing! Keep your ears up to take in nuanced listening vs. assumptions you may have about what people are telling you.
Astro tip: This one borrows from Numerology, which has a comfortable relationship with astrology. 2023 is a 7 Universal Year. Its focus that we will all experience is on spiritual and personal growth and evolution.
Set up your creative space, a spot that inspires you to feel safe and let your imagination grow. Where will you locate your “hutch” or enhance one you already have?
Astro tip: Tap into the South Node in Scorpio. With the lunar node in Scorpio until July 17, 2023, you’ll need a safe space to cocoon where you can let your guard down and be free to be yourself.
A fluffle is a group of rabbits, and for us it’s about creating your community and summoning your supporters! If you isolated during 2022’s Year of the Water Tiger, it’s time to come out and join a, well, fluffle!
Astro tip: Your astro allies here are Saturn and Pluto. On March 7, 2023, restrictive Saturn ends a three-year journey through communal Aquarius, allowing you to be more social. But who with? Transformative Pluto dips into Aquarius from March 23 to June 11, 2023, and then for 20 years from November 19, 2024 (for the first time since 1798!) The way we work together is about to shift to sharing more resources and collaboration.
Honor and enjoy the process for your longer-term dreams, the ones beyond your 12-month window. These are the ones that need skill-building and persistence. Where have you “microwaved” where you should have slow cooked? You might need to go back on something and build.
Astro tip: Here is where you can tap into power player Pluto in Capricorn for most of 2023 (and part of 2024) as it wraps a 16-year tour through the methodic earth sign. The lesson here is slow and steady wins the race.
This part of your vision board is about how you treat yourself! This includes not only self-care but self-kindness. Pro tip: schedule your care so it happens!
Astro tip: Abundant Jupiter spends a year in Taurus from May 16, 2023 to May 25, 2024. This underscores the importance of sensuality and simple pleasures. Additionally, the destiny-driven North Node is in Taurus until July 17, 2023, which is just screaming for you to reward yourself.
These are the small and regular practices that turn your vision into reality.
Astro tip: Tap into Saturn in Pisces again here. When the disciplined planet flows into dreamy Pisces for three years beginning March 7, 2023, you can create more time to imagine and ideate, turn routines into rituals. This isn’t about just hitting results but enjoying the process.
Why work with The AstroTwins?
Bring your vision board to life, but in sync with the stars!
“There are a lot of decisions people make in a year’s time, and sometimes we just get so overwhelmed by trying to make them,” Ophi says. “We don’t know when and we try to do them all at once and then we give up.”
The AstroTwins created Launchpad to let you know that living your destiny does not have to be hard or take forever. And it can be fun!
“If you’re someone who loves manifesting but you want to add a practical and measurable system that you can implement with ease and you want it to be based in astrology,” Ophi says, Launchpad is for you!
Launchpad has two levels designed for your needs
A key benefit of Launchpad is real-time interaction, every quarter, with Tali and Ophira, to really zoom in on what’s happening in the stars so you can work with the energies that are available in the Year of the Water Rabbit. It will also explore how to use The AstroTwins’ I*AM system of approaching your birth chart, working with it to bring out your strengths.
Launchpad includes four live sessions with The AstroTwins!
Launchpad PLUS includes eight live sessions with The AstroTwins!
Who are The AstroTwins?
Identical twin sisters Ophira and Tali Edut, known as The AstroTwins, are professional astrologers who reach millions worldwide. Through their website Astrostyle and as the official astrologers for ELLE magazine, they bring the stars down to earth with their lifestyle and coaching-based approach to horoscopes. They’ve created astrology sections for multiple media properties, including Mindbodygreen, Refinery29, Parade, and Lifetime. Bestselling authors, they’ve written over 15 books and co-created the 2022 Amazon Prime reality dating series Cosmic Love.
The AstroTwins just completed a year-long program, called “Astropreneurs.” This membership group of soul-centered entrepreneurs kept their cosmic compasses pointed in the right direction with Tali and Ophira’s coaching. They stayed inspired, aligned and able to take action on their dreams with a supportive community. Here’s what some of them had to say:
- “Astropreneurs put me on a new path of learning about who I am as a business woman in this great Universe, and like every star and planet, I have an integral place and purpose to fulfill.”
- “I’m more clear about my goals and how to get there, more aware of my strengths. This was so refreshing and encouraging!“
- “Just loving this course and community. I’ve gained so many insights that are taking my thoughts, musings and ideas to place I never dreamed of exploring before.“
Coaching and community are the goals of Launchpad, Ophi and Tali say. If you have questions about Launchpad and how to co-create with the stars, learn more about Launchpad here.
