2023: Shaking the Status Quo to Awaken the Soul -- January's Astrology Newsletter

By Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax

Putney Mountain,Vermont

I explore the nature of a year by combining its main astrological feature(s) with its numerology and Oriental Animal. I see Pluto entering Aquarius as the main astrology feature of 2023, the Cat as its animal, and 7 as its number.

The last time Pluto moved through Aquarius was in the late 1700s, during the French and American Revolutions. On March 23 it reenters that sign, sounding the call for a new revolution that can benefit all of us rather than the citizens of a particular country, because we're all stuck under the yoke of an obsolete and unjust system.

Aquarius is humanity's urge to get past our surface differences to our underlying kinship. Through the ages, this unifying force has had the hardest time overthrowing the rule of tyrants. In today's world, tyrants are harder to spot, because they've been subsumed into faceless corporations and monied interests which segregate people into separate identity clusters based on bigotry and fear. Pluto in Aquarius is asking us to break out of this obsolete model and dream of something bigger, better and more unified.

Check out our upcoming Pluto in Aquarius class.

On January 22, we enter a year some Oriental countries see as Rabbit and others as Cat. I know cats much better so that's how I see it. Cats are the animals that stay poised in rapt attention, with very sharp senses that tune into all movements in their environment. The cat in you is being summoned next year to drop out of your mind into your senses, tuning into your surroundings with keen acuity, asking What's going on here? Who is this other one? What are they bringing me? Moving out of your head into the sharp senses of your body is the way of the cat.

2023 is a 7, number of The Test, in which life will keep asking who you are and what you're doing until you can answer that question with certainty and soul, which requires a breakthrough out of social expediency to enduring self-knowledge.

Put together, these three factors indicate a sea change in society, with Pluto in Aquarius calling the true human being to emerge from artificial separation, the Cat sharpening your instincts so you can leap into life, and the 7 testing your knowledge of who you are and what you're doing.
