How’s 2023 going to be? A quick overview

Written By Addittya Tamhankar

2023 brings us to the magical number of 7. 7 is mystical and 7 is also unpredictable. That is why number 7 is associated with all kind of gambling including horse race. Dynamism, Mysticism, Spiritualism, and Magic is associated with number 7. Sudden happenings is also associated with number. In many countries and cultures – 7 is addressed as lucky 7 – because when you are willing to jump – to take risks – you are bound to taste more success than others. In Vedic Astrology – the number 7 is represented by Lord Ketu. And the year 2023 will have more impact of Ketu. So if you have a positive KETU in your birth chart – if you are running through KETU Mahadasha or KETU Antardasha – then this year 2023 is going to be a great transformative year for you.

The 5 favorite signs of KETU are – Scorpio, Sagittarius, Leo, Aries & Pisces – so it is a very simple fact that all these 4 zodiac signs – Scorpio, Sagittarius, Leo and Aries will experience many good times and positive developments in the new year 2023.

The 5 signs that KETU dislikes are – Taurus, Gemini, Libra, Virgo, Cancer – so these 5 signs will face certain challenges and hurdles in the new year 2023.

The remaining 2 signs – Capricorn & Aquarius – these two buddies are already running through SHANI SAADE SAATI – and KETU is neutral in these two signs – so this new year 2023 is going to be a highly transformative year for these two signs. Natives of these signs will experience certain major change in their lifestyle as well as they will experience a major shift in their perspective and overall thought process.

Saturn transiting in Aquarius is a wonderful development for the human world since this transit will bring many positive changes in our world – new technology innovations, empowerment to woman and humanity will again gain momentum. Revolutions and humanistic ideology will now gain more momentum.

Sagittarius will come out of Saade Saati Period. I want to congratulate all the men and women born with moon in Sagittarius – because the whole period of 7.5 years have completely changed you as a person – you have evolved during this phase of Sade Saati and ofcourse evolution is always a painful process – transformation happens only when you go through certain shocks and pains and sufferings. So a big congratulations to all those beautiful Sagittarius men and Sagittarius women who have transformed into a butterfly – the new 2023 year now welcomes you to use your hard earned wisdom to good use and make the most while this year lasts!

Lord Jupiter will remain in the sign of Pisces till April 21st. Then from April 22nd – Lord Jupiter will enter in the fiery sign of Aries. So in a way it is a wonderful news for you – if you are born with Moon in Pisces sign or if you are born on Pisces Ascendant. Because from April 22nd – Pisces men and women will have an excellent financial growth as well as a good family life. So cheer up my Pisces fellows – even if your Saade Saati is starting from Jan 18 – still benevolent Jupiter will cover and protect you from 22nd April 2023. Love and my best wishes to all who belong to the wonderful sign of Pisces. From April 22nd along with Pisces – Scorpio and Cancer natives will also have good time because Jupiter is turning very auspicious for Scorpio and Cancer – so cheer up and enjoy the ride!

Taurus, Gemini, Libra, Virgo however will have to face certain challenges this year – since neither Jupiter nor Saturn is positive and so 2023 will be a year wherein you will have to put extra efforts to achieve your goals.

Rahu and Ketu will remain in Aries and Libra until 29th Nov 2023. So almost the entire year of 2023 – Rahu and Ketu are not going to change their signs and so if you are suffering due to the current transit of Rahu and Ketu then there is not much change – the status quo remains the same in your life.

Transits of Moon, Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars impact for short timeframe and basically these are the planets that keep adding a certain spice in your life. So the main script of yearly transits is set by the BIG BOYS – Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu, Ketu are these big boys. And moreover the picture for 2023 looks promising for Sagittarius, Pisces, Aries, Leo, Cancer, and Scorpio while the same year 2023 looks challenging for Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius, Libra and Gemini.

So which sign is the winner for 2023 – of course – the sign Pisces since it enjoys the support of Jupiter from 22nd April while the other – Scorpio and Cancer are the runner-up and they too will enjoy a good support from Lord Jupiter! So Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer are the winner of 2023.

However the other 9 signs are definitely not the losers – each of these 9 zodiac signs have their own story – their own battle that will have to fight and emerge victorious. Sagittarius is now free from Saade Saati. Gemini is also free from Shani Dhaiya – so both Sagittarius and Gemini will experience relief in certain matters of their life – they will much lighter.

Libra and Aquarius however has no special good news to relish upon – the only update is that nothing special is going to happen for you however there is going to be no bad news – so just keep walking through the year of 2023 – life will be as usual.

Taurus will have to face many expenses and saving money will be next to impossible – so Taurus natives should try to save by spending less and saving more.

Aries will continue to face mental worries, sleeping problems and anxiety – you life will improve only after Rahu Ketu transits a new sign in November 2023. So until November 2023 – life is going to be as usual – just ensure that you don’t make matters worse by being impatient. Be patient, be faithful and just keep walking.

Leo natives will have to face certain challenges until April 2023. However after April 2023 – you will experience a wonderful time. Your investments will pay off. If you plan to start a business then do it after April 2023. After April 2023 – all the beautiful souls born with moon or sun in Leo sign or natives born on Leo Ascendant will experience great time and there is absolutely no second thought to this! So just hold on till April 2023. Leos are my favorites – and I love the royal Nakshatra of Magha – the seat of Lord Ketu!

Capricorn and Aquarius will continue with their Saade Saati period and in the process will continue to go through the process of transformation. Transformation is a painful process and very few are blessed with this kind of transformation process – so just keep going – maintain a positive attitude – and always keep learning from your experiences and situations – and then the year 2023 will turn a highly positive year for you!

So with this – I have given a quick overview of how the new year 2023 is going to be – of course as this year will progress – I will continue to guide you – alert you when there are certain difficult transits and eclipses happening this year.

Always remember – no pain no gain – so instead of expecting a very smooth ride – the evolved souls welcome the most difficult roads because the evolved souls – the wise beings are perfectly aware of the fact that – Difficult roads leads to Beautiful destinations.

As this new year begins – as the very first rays of the new year sun fall upon you – I would like to remind you that FREEDOM is above all. My vision of freedom is to BE YOURSELF. And when Saturn is entering the sign of AQUARIUS – FREEDOM is going to be the goal – the coming 30 months – you all will witness revolutions that demand freedom – absolute freedom from oppressive rulers. So I have a lot of hope in Aquarius Saturn. Aquarius is a sign of humanity, a sign of unconventional ideas and unconventional ways of life – and Aquarius demands FREEDOM – Aquarius is against dynasty politics – Aquarius wants the grassroot person to rise to high positions – so there is a lot of drama and sudden events that you all will experience as Saturn embarks on its 30 month journey in the sign of Aquarius.

Always remember – LOVE brings FREEDOM. Loyalty brings Slavery. When you are in love – you experience freedom – but when your partner becomes possessive – you tend to slip out of love – because Love can never possess. Love is giving freedom to the other. Love is an unconditional gift. Love is not a bargain.

This planet needs more love. The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of all kinds.

I am reminded of a beautiful incident. There was a great Sufi Saint – his name was Baba Farid. One day a king came to see him. He had brought a present for him: a beautiful pair of scissors, golden, studded with diamonds — very valuable, very rare, something unique. He brought those scissors to present to Farid. He touched Farid’s feet and gave him the scissors; Farid took them, looked at them, gave them back to the king, and said, “Sir, many many thanks for the present that you have brought. It is a beautiful thing, but utterly useless for me. It will be better if you can give me a needle. Scissors I don’t need: a needle will do.”

The king said, “I don’t understand. If you need a needle, you will need scissors too.”

Baba Farid said, “I am talking in metaphors. Scissors I don’t need because scissors cut things apart. A needle I need because a needle puts things together. I teach love. My whole teaching is based on love — putting things together, teaching people communion. I need a needle so that I can put people together. The scissors are useless; they cut, they disconnect. Next time when you come, just an ordinary needle will be enough.”

And so my fellows – this is the message – the message of LOVE. We don’t want to see bloodshed wars and we don’t want to see bloodshed riots happening in our neighborhood. We want to see more understanding, more brotherhood, more compassion and more forgiveness so that our society becomes an example for those visitors that are yet to arrive on this planet.

Always remember – You are a guest. Leave this earth a little more beautiful, a little more human, a little more lovable, a little more fragrant, for those unknown guests who will be following you. We have to set examples – good examples for the generation that is just born – and I am a very optimistic person – I am aware that there are many beautiful souls – healers, living on this planet who will ensure that the year 2023 turn out to be more rewarding to humanity than the year of 2022.

Love to all my followers – the new year has just began and my sharing also have just began – there is more to come – stay tuned and stay blessed.

If you want to make your new year more positive and more happening then turn to meditation – practice meditation every day – chant every day “Aum Gam Ganapataye Namaha” – all the tools and all the solutions are available to you – all you need is to get up and implement it in your daily routine. Remember – every drop matters – similarly every day matters – real and lasting change only occurs in small increments over long period of time.

BANAT BANAT BAN JAYE – says the divine master Lahiri Mahasaya – so focus on your every day routine – focus on raising your awareness and being consistent in your spiritual practice – and then everything is going to be fine.

Your focus determines your destiny. Focus on the positive – focus on your inner growth.

Happiness happens when you fit with your life, when you fit so harmoniously that whatsoever you are doing is your joy.

At the outset of the new year 2023 – I want to wish each one of you – from the bottom of my heart – a very happy new year. God bless you and may you walk on the path of self-realization. As the benevolent Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi says – the only purpose is to look with and realize the self – there is nothing else to do!

Love and Light. Stay calm, Stay patient and moreover stay faithful. Faith is the source that enables you to remain Patient.

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
