Cheers to a New Year 2023!
So many should feel like they are turning a new leaf in 2023 with Saturn finally moving into Aquarius on January 17, 2023. Currently Mercury is Retrograde in Sagittarius (rules politics, religion and belief systems). This is a time of review and reflection. Forget everything you thought you ever knew about politics, religion and philosophy and start learning from the beginning. Avoid beginning any new year’s resolutions until about January 25th. Do spend the next few weeks reflecting on the lessons learned in 2022 as these lessons will help you out in the future. What plans you thought you had, may change in the next two to three weeks. Although the “plandemic” was technically over, there is still this feeling of being held back in 2022. However, Im happy to report that we should feel like all trains are moving forward by February 2023.
Lets Talk Economy!
I want to remind you that Mars is still retrograde and will station direct at 14 degrees on January 13, 2023. In 1990, when Mars went retrograde in Taurus (rules money and our domestic life) as a result, we experienced the economic recession. In 2008, we had another recession. In 2023, we are going to experience a recession. However, I have to add this…when the Great depression began (officially October 24, 1929), both Jupiter and Rahu were conjunct on May 6, 1929 in Aries. Previous to this was the Panic of 1893, when the USA was experiencing one of its worst economic depressions. That same year on March 20, 1893 was the Jupiter/ Rahu conjunction in Aries. In 2023, Jupiter and Rahu will conjunct on June 1, 2023. There will be a stock market crisis this year. We are certainly headed into a depression. Although, there will be some improvement economically towards the end of 2024, the depression will last until the year 2028.
With Saturn in Aquarius (rules networks, organizations, hopes and dreams), we will see big corporations and organizations conducting major layoffs. Is this the end of the world…NO! Our world goes through cycles, we recover and move on. Some common sense tips are: save money, spend on what’s necessary, pay any debts within reason (you still need to have cash on hand for emergency purposes), and if your position isn’t financially stable and secure, start looking for new employment. In the event, you lose your position this year, don’t sweat it. It’s the Universe’s way of moving you where you need to be. With Saturn opposing the sign of Leo, the natural 5th house of the zodiac, you may find yourself returning to old friends, old creative outlets and/or ideas for a new source of income. The most amazing thing about our modern time is that you can make money from doing just about anything anywhere!
What about Currency?
In 2023 Cryptocurrency and the dollar will decline. The world is going to begin rolling out Digital Currency one country at a time. I have to forewarn you, although this may appear as something new, exciting and wonderful, it’s going to fail. It reminds me of the Euro, a failed economic experiment. Eventually, we will return to real money backed by real metals (gold, silver, etc.)
Saturn in Aquarius (January 17, 2023 thru March 30, 2023)
Aquarius rules networks, organizations, social connections, hopes and dreams.
Saturn wants to help you advance towards your goals and achievements. You may find yourself letting go of friendships or groups that are preventing you from doing your best or serving your highest purpose. Saturn will also help you create strong ties and foundations with others in order to advance your efforts towards your goals and achieve success. Keep in mind that Aquarius is a humanitarian sign. Remember the saying: “What is good for the goose is good for the gander.” Saturn (ruler of karma) will give you a reality check and question what have you done for society at large. Have you been good, honest and responsible towards your community? Depending on that answer, Saturn’s transit in Aquarius may be filled with rewards or sacrifices for the betterment of society. Either way, remember to use whatever position you hold in society for the good of all.
*TAKE CAUTION if you have any of the following Natal Planets in Aquarius: Moon, Saturn, Mars, Rahu, Ketu. If yes, be sure to schedule a Vedic Astrology Reading with me to help you prepare and navigate the years 2023-2025.
Jupiter in Aries (April 21, 2023 thru May 1, 2024)
Aries is the first-born, trailblazer of the natural zodiac and rules the mind-set and stamina. Jupiter brings fortune, luck and helps us to grow and expand, and does beautifully in Aries. May I remind you that Rahu (North Node) and Uranus are still in transit in the sign of Aries. We can expect tons of advancements, new enterprises, surprises, shake-ups and catalytic shifts in energy! With Jupiter trining the signs of Leo and Sagittarius, you can look forward to 2023 as a time filled with optimism, inspiration, intuition, and adventures. Jupiter does propel use forward into the future. We have the guts to step outside our comfort zone and move into the unknown. This is an awesome opportunity to begin a new business. Let me remind you that the following companies began during a recession: Venmo, Uber, Airbnb, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Hyatt Hotels and Hewlett-Parkard to name a few. If you have an idea, run with it! The downside of Jupiter/Rahu transit in Aries is that with we may be willing to take risks, chances and/or break taboos that could put our moral/ethical compass into question. Do your best to remain in good standing with yourself, and with others.
Rahu/Ketu change signs (November 28, 2023 thru May 29, 2025 )
Rahu and Ketu move into Pisces and Virgo. Pisces is the natural 12th house of the zodiac which rules liberation, death, sleep, bed pleasures, loss, expenses, suffering, hospitalization, confinement and hidden enemies. Virgo is the natural 6th house of the zodiac which rules health, pets, employment, fitness, food, lawsuits, accidents, attacks, and routines. I foresee another virus outbreak that will be difficult to diagnose which will result in another pandemic. We may likely see masks encourage again (although I feel many will ignore this), increased number of deaths the likes we haven’t seen before. I’m concerned about sick animals and contaminated food/crops. There will be problems with healthcare and treatments. The pharmaceutical industry will face difficult times regarding patents, drug developments, trust, lawsuits and political issues unrest. There will be increase in job loss/unemployment. More about this later in the year 2023. In the meantime, I strongly suggest learning more about holistic, natural and herbal medicine to prepare for the times ahead, including finding alternative sources of income.
FYI: The last time Rahu and Ketu transit Pisces and Virgo was from February 22, 2005 thru November 7, 2006. You can expect a similar theme to take place for you.

Saturn is moving into the 3rd house of the USA Natal Chart. In the 3rd house reside the natal Moon. USA is currently under the Sade Sati (7.5 years) transit and will enter the second phase of this transit January 17, 2023. The second phase of Sade Sati is the most intense because this is when Saturn conjuncts natal Moon. As previously stated in this newsletter, USA will go from recession into depression. We will witness more struggles and changes in identity and welfare of the USA. There will be more health problems among Americans. If you think the death toll is high now, it will hit record breaking numbers during this transit. There will be another health crisis in the USA. We can expect devastating hurricanes, floods and snow storms. The USA will enter into a war. Biden will be stepping down from office due to health-related issues. Harris will be stepping into Presidency. Bombing of a nationally recognized building in the USA. It could be government or financial building. The October 14, 2023 Annual Eclipse Path runs from Oregon thru Texas. The Solar Eclipse will take place in Virgo at 27 degrees. This will closely conjunct the USA natal Saturn which rules the second and third house. We can see a serious stock market decline. Housing market will decline. In this event, buy land and properties. Partner up with friends or family. Financial institutions will be in distress. Cryptocurrencies and the dollar will decline. I would still purchase gold, silver, commodities, gems, jewels as this will hold its value and increase. The years 2024, 2025, 2026 will be financially devasting. Massive unemployment by 2024. There will be a reset, but I don’t feel its going to go as planned by the elites. Ultimately, I predict that the USA will restart as a new country with a new constitution and new flag. The new name may go something like this: The Republic of the United States of America. This may not occur until sometime between 2025 – 2028. I haven’t perfected the date yet but will let you know when I’m certain. It should be of no surprise because we cannot undue the corruption, bad laws and bad politicians. I also recommend you begin getting more involved in your local politics and school boards. The future needs good people like you to step up and prepare for the days ahead. I know we can do this!
This may not have been what you wanted to hear about the year 2023 and years ahead. However, Im a firm believer of forewarned is forearmed. Im a very proud supporter of human race and the United States of America. I believe that with enough good people, faith, and passion, we can stop the corruption, overcome the elites agenda and start over fresh. Say a prayer and may Divine Creator help us to do just that!
Looking forward to our journey together in 2023.
Wishing you and your loved ones a most blessed New Year 2023!
With Love, Lissabeta Kalag - AstroDevi
