Your 2023 Money Horoscope Says It's Your Year of Financial Freedom
No matter where you're at in the year financially, it's always a good time to think about your money and career moves. Whether you're ready to start a new chapter in your career, take a leap of faith and open a business, or double down on building your rainy-day fund, now is the perfect opportunity to focus on financial freedom while prioritizing your personal goals. Of course, no year is without its troubles. But your 2023 money and career horoscope is pushing you to step outside your currency comfort zone and explore a new approach. This year's cosmic weather forecasts adventurous and innovative opportunities to improve your reputation at work and increase your bank accounts. What career and money intentions will you reaffirm for the year?
The year began with messenger Mercury retrograde in ambitious Capricorn through mid-January — and this retrograde was top tier for reflecting on your long-term visions. Still, you likely appreciated the wisdom and structure this transit brought while Jupiter, the planet of luck and fortune, was in action-oriented Aries until May 18, and your inspiration to create and start fresh was greater than ever. You may have even received a raise or an aligned offer to make some extra funds in the first few days of March, when passionate Venus and Jupiter, the planet of luck and money, aligned in self-determined Aries. If you felt stuck at the beginning of the year, hopefully, this golden opportunity opened the door to a new career path or financial journey.
Things got even spicier on March 7, when responsible Saturn, the planet of professionalism and business, entered purifying Pisces, kicking off a three-year journey. This major energetic shift inspires a laid-back and inclusive economy. Over the next three years, expect to see changes in how you work, urging you to minimize external distractions and observe how your finances and career goals are affecting your mental and emotional health. Saturn in Pisces is a gentle reminder that you are worth more than a paycheck.
Just keep in mind that moneymaker Jupiter switched sides midyear, too, easing into comfort-seeking Taurus on May 16, where it'll remain until May 2024. With Taurus ruling money and values, that makes this the perfect time to brush up on your financial literacy skills and start a saving or investment challenge. Use Jupiter in Taurus to answer the question: how can my money work for me? Make wise financial decisions, and you may see a return on your investments by the end of the year.
As you prepare for more financial and professional firsts, check out what the rest of the year has in store for you, according to your zodiac sign, with your 2023 money and career horoscope. Be sure you read your sun and your rising sign to get the full picture on what lies ahead.

Aries (March 21-April 19) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
This year is a dynamic one for you financially and professionally, Aries. First and foremost, the year began with lucky Jupiter, the planet of wealth, expansion, and opportunity, transiting through your fearless first house of personal development up until May 16. Jupiter magnifies manifesting abilities, and in an assertive and action-oriented fire sign like Aries, your willpower and determination to succeed hit an all-time high. Entrepreneurs or those looking to earn extra cash likely enjoyed this rewarding transit, as it can often present an abundance of opportunities to invest in a passion project or secure a side hustle. This became even more true when Jupiter moved into money magnet Taurus and your second house of income and material possessions on May 16. With Jupiter, the North Node, Chiron, the eclipses, and two full moons in your sign this year, the sky has been — and continues to be — the limit!
In other news, keep in mind that serious Saturn, the planet of responsibility and reality, entered purifying Pisces and began a three-year cycle in your 12th house of endings and completion on March 7. Saturn in your 12th house means that as new doors open, old doors will close.
As the year flows on, don't lose your focus. Have your social media profiles and résumés ready and make sure to share your achievements. Pluto, the powerful planet of influence, will be in your community-centered house of Aquarius for the majority of 2023, making it the perfect time to prioritize network-building and collaboration.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
If 2022 opened new doors in your career and finances, Taurus, get ready to enjoy the fruits of your hard work and dedication this year. With all four Mercury retrogrades this year in earth signs, 2023 offers you the chance to achieve sustainable money growth and long-term success. For starters, Mercury, known for its impact on communications and learning, went retrograde in Capricorn and your fifth house of creativity and talents through mid-January. During this rejuvenating retrograde cycle, Mercury was encouraging you to seek new forms of inspiration at work.
Meanwhile, Saturn, the planet of responsibility and limitations, completed its stay in Aquarius and your career sector on March 7. Generally, Saturn's ingress through this area of your chart encourages you to be more disciplined with spending habits, especially online shopping. Although it's tempting to surge full speed ahead, lean into the slower pace the year takes, as bountiful Jupiter, known to bring luck and good fortune, spent a lot of time in Aries at the beginning of this year, highlighting your rest zone. Conjunct Chiron, the wounded healer, Jupiter's placement in your 12th house of reflection urged you to release self-limiting beliefs and money fears keeping you tied to an unfulfilling job or financial commitment. You likely felt these energies strongly around the Aries solar eclipse and new moon on April 30.
While you were gearing up for your major comeback, the cosmos were working overtime for you behind the scenes. You may have received an unexpected gift or a well-deserved bonus on March 30 when your planetary ruler, sweet Venus, cozied up with spontaneous Uranus in Taurus. Spotlighting your first house of personal development, this generous transit should have given you the confidence boost you needed to overcome any losses or setbacks the transit planets in Aries uncovered. On a brighter note, the South Node in Libra, visiting your sixth house of work-life balance from July 18 until Jan. 11, 2025, is a favorable time to ask for more support in the office and at home.
If you've been looking for a roommate to help cover expenses or researching time-management hacks to restructure your work schedule, you'll receive more insight into how these themes are transforming your professional and financial goals around the Oct. 14 Libra solar eclipse and new moon.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
You're in demand this year, dear Gemini. Get ready for your glow-up! This is an explosive year of social expansion and financial healing for you, and it's likely to be one of your most adventurous and clarifying years yet. You gained a lot more momentum once the first Mercury retrograde of the year was in the rearview mirror — like leading a team project, launching a new website, and becoming more influential on social media. You can thank money magnet Jupiter, which was heating up in confidence-boosting Aries, for that. While the lucky planet zipped through your electrifying 11th house of teams and technology through May 16, you may have felt called to reach out to innovative coworkers and community members creating waves in your industry.
Don't forget that Saturn, the planet of accountability and long-term planning, slid into your 10th house of career and public reputation in March, where it will remain until 2025. Saturn's extended stay in Pisces highlights the progress made during the Jupiter in Pisces transits in 2022 and 2021. It also pushes you to stop idealizing your dreams and put in consistent work and self-discipline to make them a reality. Because the 10th house also rules business and management, some Gems may be ditching their 9-to-5s and becoming their own bosses.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
If 2022 was a low-key year for you, Cancer, your 2023 money and career horoscope is bringing the blaze. While the year kicked off with Mercury retrograde in Capricorn, the time gave you space to reassess your current work relationships and financial affairs. Doing so put you in a better position to attract aligned partnerships and income opportunities that supported your personal goals during the Capricorn full moon on July 3 and the Cancer new moon on July 17.
On March 23, power player Pluto in Aquarius made a home in your empowering eighth house of inheritance. This once-in-a-lifetime astrological event urged you to minimize debt and increase investments. Tucking away cash may seem overwhelming and limiting at times, but building a legacy for your future brings joy to your soul. For all your hard work and dedication, treat yourself to a nonworking vacation. You'll need frequent rest breaks to maintain your momentum throughout the year, especially since Saturn ingressed into sleepy Pisces on March 7.
Another important transit that happened this year is the North Node's enlightening entry into your 10th house of career and life goals on July 18. Until Jan. 23, 2025, the soulful North Node of Destiny will move through Aries, a proactive, impulsive, and assertive fire sign. During this awakening transit, you may find that the direction of your professional goals leads you toward a more purposeful and authentic path of employment. With Chiron, the wounded healer, also visiting this area of your chart until 2027, it's best to shed outgrown beliefs about who you are and the type of work you should do. If you're feeling overwhelmed, ask a trusted friend or coworker for support. Wise Jupiter in Taurus moving through your 11th house of associations and groups for the second half of the year makes it the perfect time to start a community-centered project.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
Prepare for an exciting and transformative year of passion projects and promotions, Leo. We began 2023 with move-maker Mars retrograde in lively Gemini through mid January, which stimulated your 11th house of teamwork and collaborations. As the year progressed, you may have noticed that playful Jupiter in fellow fire sign Aries and your ninth house of adventure through May 16 pushed you to explore higher earning opportunities. Even if you're satisfied with your current gig, the destiny-fulfilling North Node in Aries from July 18 until Jan. 11, 2025, will push you to take a leap of courage.
Depending on your job, you may be traveling for work, publishing a book, going back to school, or partnering with an international company. With so much emphasis on your Aries house of continued growth, hopefully, you were able to celebrate your hard-earned success during the April 30 Aries solar eclipse and new moon. You put in the work!
As long as you focus on staying true to your values, then there's no way you can lose. Trust your gut when the final eclipse of the year lights up your career-oriented 10th house in Taurus on Oct. 28. Eclipses are known for inspiring unexpected, life-changing transformations. With lucky Jupiter conjunct the Taurus lunar eclipse and full moon, lean into the discipline and self-accountability this new season of your professional life requires. Your bank accounts and newfound supporters will thank you later!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
It's no secret that 2022 was a whirlwind year, Virgo — professionally and financially. Your 2023 career and money horoscope nudges you to keep up the focused work and finish what you started. Since 2020, disciplinarian Saturn has been transiting Aquarius and your sixth house of work and daily routines, bringing increased duties and responsibilities in the office and at home. But on March 7, Saturn slipped into purifying Pisces and your seventh house of equal partnerships, encouraging you to walk away from draining jobs and environments where you are overworked, underappreciated, and underpaid, after three years of putting others first.
To lighten the mood, on March 30, moneymaker Venus and spontaneous Uranus aligned in Taurus and your ninth house of growth. Although Uranus is known for its unexpectedness, this lucrative cosmic event should have brought you the financial breakthrough you needed. Here's hoping you used the extra cash flow to invest in something sustainable and of high value, such as property, instead of splurging on frivolous luxury items. From here on out, before you buy and sign your name on the dotted line, ask yourself: what's the return on my investment? If you stay disciplined, you'll be making it rain by the end of the year when wealthy Jupiter in Taurus ends its retrograde in your expansion zone on Dec. 30.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
It's not about what you know when it comes to your money and career this year, Libra. It's about who you know, and how often you connect with them, so get to networking! In fact, according to your career and money horoscope, 2023 will be one of your most sociable years yet. Pluto, known for its powerful and persuasive qualities, began its once-in-a-lifetime journey in Aquarius and your fulfilling fifth house of creativity and popularity on March 23, but only stayed until June 11. Pluto's short preview in Aquarius showcased the success you can create when you accept and embrace a leadership role instead of hiding behind people-pleasing tendencies. In fact, you may have experienced major shake-ups in your professional partnerships and contractual agreements during the April 30 Aries solar eclipse and new moon. If you were willing to actively negotiate, maybe you saw an increase in pay, attracted a lucrative business partner, or received a large lump sum of money.
Despite this being a celebratory time, watch out for internal criticism, egotism, and overthinking. With the karmic South Node in Libra illuminating your first house of self and identity from July 18 until Jan. 11, 2025, you may be struggling with how your progress comes across to others. Rather than battling with impostor syndrome, program yourself with positive and prosperous affirmations that remind you how priceless you are.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
Your level-up is on the way, Scorpio, but it won't happen overnight. According to your 2023 career and money horoscope, the cosmos are cooking up an extra serving of abundance for you this year, but be cautious of get-rich-quick schemes clouding your judgment. The rest of 2023 brings a mixed bag of energy, but rest assured, the end of the year is not serving all gloom and doom. Jupiter's journey through impulsive Aries in the first half of the year highlighted everything from your productivity levels and work-life balance to how well you budget and manage your money. As long as you didn't go overboard and deprive yourself of your favorite feel-goods, you likely left this transit proud of how much more time, freedom, and leftover resources you had when the lucky planet left Aries and your sixth house of organization and daily routines on May 16.
Keeping that in mind, Jupiter's ingress into sister sign Taurus and your seventh house of partnership from May 16, 2023 until May 25, 2024 is a reminder to be intentional about who you collaborate with and invest in. As an emotionally sensitive water sign, you must choose employers and employees who complement your talents and personality. To get the most out of this transformative transit, you need to feel seen and appreciated to do good work.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
Don't sleep on your potential, Sagittarius. This is your career and money year to stop playing it small and boss up! For one, your planetary ruler, generous Jupiter, began the year journeying through Aries and your fifth house of risks through May 16, guiding you to take a leap of faith and allocate your resources toward what brings you joy.
However, strict Saturn (the planet of responsibility) has slid into evasive Pisces and your foundational fourth house of family and retirement, where it will remain until 2026. Saturn in your fourth house urges you to minimize impulse shopping and prioritize more pressing matters like purchasing a home or sending your children to school. To avoid chaos and imbalance between home and work, discuss future investments and career intentions with loved ones when making life-changing financial decisions; otherwise, feelings could get hurt.
To end the year with a bang, on Dec. 12, the Sagittarius new moon gives you the courage and confidence you need to be bold and bet on yourself. Whether you're launching a personal brand or testing a new product line, don't hold back your light. When your planetary ruler, Jupiter, ends its annual retrograde on Dec. 29 in your daily-routine sector, expect productivity levels to go through the roof.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
Every year doesn't have to be all work and no play, Capricorn. In fact, your 2023 money and career horoscope is screaming at you to slow down and set firm boundaries around your work schedule, money, and, most importantly, undisturbed rest. Hopefully, you've already seen improvements since Saturn switched gears and entered prophetic Pisces and your expressive third house of self-learning and communication on March 7. Goats who are involved in publishing, design, and education may see an increase in pay and opportunities to promote their work while Saturn visits this area of your chart until 2026.
However, don't forget that you attract the most money and professional success this year when you listen to your intuition and prioritize rest and restoration. You'll start to see why you've been called to take it easy once the North Node of Destiny glides into Aries and your fourth house of privacy until 2025. If you haven't joined the work-from-home team yet, you could now. The North Node's soulful presence gives you the comfort and reassurance you need to grow and flourish on your own terms, without competing or being micromanaged by others.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
Since 2020, you've been working behind the scenes to revamp your skillset, Aquarius. With a new degree or certification in tow (thank you, Jupiter in Aries), employers will be wowed by your impressive résumé. Even if you're happy where you're at, don't slack on the job search this year. Your 2023 money and career horoscope wants your professional profiles to portray you in the best possible light.
Fortunately, you likely saw a physical change in your paycheck and bank account beginning on March 7 when Saturn, the planet of sustainable success, ingressed into Pisces and your money-making second house of income and assets. Serious Saturn is rewarding you for your consistency and efforts, especially since Jupiter in Pisces journeyed through this same area of your chart in 2021 and 2022.
The year comes to a close with lucky Jupiter in Taurus settling into your fourth house of home and stability. Although you love being around people and connecting with coworkers, this privacy-seeking transit offers an opportunity to explore the work-from-home (or anywhere) lifestyle. Other water bearers may be looking into consulting or a freelance gig that provides higher pay and more control. Just be cautious when taking the entrepreneurial route, as you may find that changemaker Uranus in this area of your chart could bring unexpected expenses and inconsistent funds. You may want to ease into your new lifestyle instead of diving in headfirst. It's OK to start small and make passive income on the side while you continue building credibility at your 9-to-5.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) 2023 Money and Career Horoscope
Money's on your mind this year, sweet Pisces — secure your bag! Consciously or unconsciously, you're looking for exciting and profitable ways to make a name for yourself while increasing your investments and overall net worth. Have you been contemplating settling down into a more stable and profitable career? If yes, hopefully, you kick-started your big plans before Mars in Gemini moved out of your house of achievement and public recognition on March 25.
In addition to Mars retrograde clarifying career goals, the Jupiter in Aries transit (until May 16) likely encouraged you to get serious about diversifying your income streams. Instead of relying solely on your business or 9-to-5, the cosmos is encouraging you to get creative and look for innovative ways to attract extra dough. As if the universe knew you needed a fresh start, Saturn, the planet of responsibility and rewards, moved into Pisces and your first house of self and personal development on March 7. Also known as the great teacher, Saturn brings structure and order to everything it touches. And with the planet of wisdom in your first house until 2026, it's never been a better time to give your résumé and bank account a magical makeover. Keep in mind that Saturn is retrograde in your sign from now through Nov. 4, so pace yourself. Your new chapter is just beginning; there's no need to rush it.
