If there is one thing we can guarantee about life and love, it’s that things are bound to change. While this is true of every relationship, some zodiac signs may be noticing some significant shifts in their relationships in 2023.
The upcoming year is going to be a source of change for several zodiac signs in their love lives, but this isn’t a negative thing. Some may experience finding a new partner, while some may shift into a more serious commitment with their significant other—and some may see a new side to their current relationship they didn’t expect.
Check out your sign (check Sun and Rising!) to see if your zodiac sign will see their love life shift in 2023.
2023 is certainly lining up to be an interesting time for you when it comes to love, Leo. The year kicks off with Venus—the planet of love, beauty, and romance—will be in Aquarius, which rules your 7th House of Partnerships. A new year has your sights set on a new relationship—whether a new partner or a new approach to your current one. This consistency will continue throughout the first few months as planets transit your House of Relationships and your 8th House of Intimacy. However, the biggest indicator of a love life shift takes place during the summer, when Venus moves into your sign—only to retrograde around July 22nd. This transit will happen in your 1st House of Self, and while your focus will partially be tailored towards changing your appearance to match who you are, it will also be a time to reflect on what (and who) you value, leading to reassessments of the type of relationships you tend to find yourself in. By the end of the year, you’ll have a much more secure connection in your relationships because you know it’s what you want and need.
Love is certainly on the brain for you this year, Aquarius. With Venus starting off in your sign at the beginning, the focus on yourself and your desires (as well as your connections) will be impossible to ignore. Naturally, other planets will be making this shift as well. Saturn has also been sitting in your 1st House for quite some time but will be moving into Pisces later on in the year—a little bit of a break from the restrictions you may have been feeling. Later on in the Spring, both Mars and Venus will transit your 7th House of Partnerships, giving you the drive and motivation to pursue your relationships more directly. However, Venus in Leo will start its retrograde on July 22nd, meaning that all this intentional work you’ve been doing regarding yourself and your relationships will be put to the test. You know what your expectations and boundaries are to ensure a healthy relationship, so take advantage of this time to communicate them. As the end of the year approaches, you will realize how much better you know yourself and your significant other—whether through growing together or simply knowing the type of person you should be with.
Shifts don’t have to be dramatic to be noticeable—something you will learn in the upcoming year, Libra. At the start of the year, your 5th House of Romance and Passion gets plenty of attention, encouraging the possibility of new love interests and passion in your connections. Once Venus moves into Leo during the summer and activates the 11th House of Friendships, there is a possibility of finding a connection with someone through your social circle (though with the retrograde, it may take a little longer to see the potential). Additionally, once Jupiter is in Aries, the planet will add some extra abundance to your relationship house. The possibilities are wide open for you—if you’re ready to embrace them.
Your love life will certainly have to make a shift, especially as you are embracing and learning to love yourself, Aries. 2022 spent a good amount of time focusing on your habits and boundaries, and 2023 is ready to let you explore new connections with these concepts in mind. Your House of Self gets a boost in the abundance aspect with Jupiter as it moves into your sign, and later in when Venus in Leo transits your 5th house of Passion and Romance, you’ll likely notice an uptick in meeting new people and flirting like crazy. Once Venus starts its retrograde, you may reassess what brings you actual joy and pleasure—which are important things to be aware of as you move through the rest of the year. The more you embrace and love yourself, the more attractive you’re going to come across to others.
The conclusion of the Taurus/Scorpio eclipses will take place during your season, bringing to a close all the lessons you’ve been learning through each eclipse. This may signify the end of a relationship or an end to how it once was. Venus in Leo may have you making some significant decisions with a partner if you’ve made it through—you’ve come out on the other side and may consider the possibility of moving into together, getting married, or even starting a family (though once Venus retrogrades, don’t be afraid to slow down the planning process—no need to rush into things just to prove a point). Scorpio season will activate your 7th House of Relationships, a perfect time to focus on each other (or to make a connection if you’re single). There is much to consider this year, but if 2022 has taught you anything, it’s that you’re ready for it.
