2023 is numerologically a “7” Universal year. “7” years are great for introspection and discovering your own inner truth. 2023 will be a year of coming face-to-face with who you are and what you value. “7” years are considered spiritual years because you must go within and confer with your Higher Power in order to honestly move forward as a soul. Beginning 2023– a “7” year– during a Mercury retrograde is a double reminder that introspection, self-discovery, and a spiritual connection are very important to you as an individual and as a member of the world community.
From December 29th to January 18, 2023, the planet of communication and plans will be retrograde (appearing to go backwards). Mercury retrogrades are great for introspection and personal “re” work– reflection, retreat, review, reinvention. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. If you can, please hold off on buying (or leasing) any big-ticket items and wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions. Please practice patience with compassion, remember to focus on the big picture, go easy on yourself and others, and accept that there will be delays, so please factor in extra time in your schedule, and above all, please don’t take the vicissitudes of life personally.
Your message this month comes in a quote that also represents your theme for the year 2023. During this “7” year of introspection, please examine your life, motives, feelings, hopes, wishes, dreams and relationships through the lens of this quote.
