Leo 2023 Love & Relationships Horoscope
Pluto is starting to move to your relationships and commitment sector in 2023, coming to this sector late March to mid-June. This can start a more serious approach to your relationships, and you can take commitment more seriously. You can attract serious people to you, powerful people, but also people who may want to control you, and you have to learn how to hold your own power. You may find massive transformations occur in your relationships, and what you want and need and what you’re willing to give comes under the microscope.
Saturn has already been in your relationships and commitment sector for the last couple of years, and moves out in early March, just before Pluto starts. Hopefully, you used the last couple of years to work on your relationships, relationship issues, and sort through old baggage. You’ve likely learned a lot of hard lessons, and seen some people leave your life. The relationships that endure can stick around for the long haul, and passion can increase thanks to Pluto.
Saturn exits this sector and moves to your intimacy sector in early March, where Neptune has been for some years. Saturn in this sector can make you more serious about the emotional bonds you have with others, and you can focus on strengthening them. If they don’t feel healthy and contribute positively to your life, you may let them go. This may mean more people leave your life, but the ones that stick around can be for life. Intimacy can have a strong spiritual connection for you with Neptune here, and you likely want to feel a deep emotional, physical, and spiritual bond with your partner(s). Any intimacy issues can come out, and you can work on them, but they may stem from something old and deep that needs to be unearthed.
2023 ends with focus on love as Mars and Ceres both move to your love sector in late November to end the year. Mars is the planet of energy and drive, while Ceres is support and nourishment, so you can be super supportive, loving, and affectionate with those you love. You can make more time for romance, and can feel at ease when you’re connecting with loved ones. This can be a great time for dating, if single; if attached, you can work to reconnect and respark.
Mercury does retrograde (appears to move backward) in your love sector in late December though, so you may become more aware of love issues you need to address quickly. It’s only a week, so hopefully any issues that arise are minor and you can push through fast. This can be great for reconnecting with old flames, or for reigniting existing flames.
Leo 2023 Career & Money Horoscope
Uranus remains in your career and life path sector for all of 2023, and is joined by Jupiter starting mid-May. This can be excellent for achievement and you may find the second half of 2023 is full of success for you. Opportunities can come your way from many directions, and you can get recognition and make important connections with important people that take you further. You may be looked up to, and be seen as a role model in some way. All of this is great, but it may come with extra responsibilities. You can handle this, just make sure you’re leaving room in your plans for breaks.
Mercury retrogrades in your career and life path sector shortly before Jupiter moves in, and there may be some challenges you need to work through before the great energy starts. You may experience a setback, delay, or outright failure that disappoints you, and you may feel like giving up temporarily. Keep up the fight though, because the planets are likely going to give you the opportunity to be a phoenix!
A lunar eclipse occurs on October 28th in your career and life path sector, and this may be a time of great success and rewards if you’ve done things the right way, and are really invested in what you’re doing. You can hit a new height, end up in the spotlight, and feel like you’ve arrived in some way. On the other hand, if you haven’t done things right or your heart isn’t in it, you may experience challenges, setbacks, or failures. If that happens, try to look at it as an opportunity to understand what you need to do differently going forward to guarantee that doesn’t happen again.
The year starts with Mercury retrograde in your work sector to mid-January, and you may feel you’ve got a lot on your plate, you’re overwhelmed by work that needs to be done, and you need a break. If you can get a break, that’s probably a good idea, but if you can’t, try to go easy on yourself as you’re managing and don’t expect perfection. Mercury retrogrades again briefly in your work sector in mid-December, and there may be extra work that needs to be done and a long list of things to do. Watch your stress levels and try to leave some room in your schedule for flexibility.
Pluto is nearing the end of its time in your work sector, exiting in late March and coming back mid-June for the rest of 2023. The last decade has likely prompted you to transform in major ways the work you do, your approach to work, or what the results of your work are. You’ve likely had to make certain the work you’re doing daily is work you’re passionate about, and anything less just wasted your time. The Mercury retrogrades to start and end 2023 in your work sector may shine a spotlight on anything you’ve missed over these years before Pluto moves on, and you do too.
Ceres retrogrades in your money sector late March to early May, and this may be a time of financial stress. You may feel under a lot of pressure, have a lot of financial obligations, and may not feel you have enough (even if you actually do). You may feel like you lack financial support from partners, and everything is falling on you. Try to take a step back, take some of the load off of your shoulders, and be gentle with yourself. Slow down and reconnect with the present and your body. This can help with managing stress.
Ceres remains in this sector to late June, and this gives you a chance to turn things around going into Jupiter and Uranus in your career and life path sector. Mars also starts to help by touring your money sector mid-July to late August, and you may find you make more money, have more financial opportunities, and generally feel better about your financial situation.
Mercury retrogrades in your money sector late August to mid-September though, so you may have one more little issue that needs to be addressed. It’s also likely you’re just worried about old financial problems coming back, but they don’t, it’s just worry and stress. Try to keep that under control
All of the Mercury retrogrades as well as Ceres retrograde impacting your professional sectors in 2023, so this is a big year for retrograde energy and your professional life. This may mean you’re changing jobs or careers, or going back to a job or profession you used to do (second chance).

A solid home and family life can be a great foundation for you at this time.

Leo 2023 Mental State Horoscope
Ceres begins 2023 in one of the sectors ruling your mind, and this can help you focus on tending to your mind, nurturing your mind, and taking care of your mental needs. This helps once Ceres turns retrograde in early February, and is retrograde in this sector to late March. You may feel your ideas aren’t supported, your plans aren’t listened to, and your thoughts are ignored. Try to look within for any validation, since this may be difficult to get externally during the retrograde. It may be a good period for working on old ideas or plans again, and for revising.
Ceres comes back to this sector after the retrograde late June to mid-September, and you can work on tending to your mental needs and supporting yourself with your ideas and plans. Mars also tours this sector late August to mid-October, and you may find you have lots more mental energy too. You can think quicker on your feet, and have lots of new ideas to work on and plans to take action with. You can get excited by what you come up with, and want to get moving quickly.
A solar eclipse occurs in this sector on October 14th, and this can bring a brilliant new idea, an opportunity for you to pursue an idea of yours, important new information that is highly beneficial, or some good news you’ve been waiting on. You can be enthusiastic and focused on the positives.
Jupiter is in another sector ruling the mind to start 2023 until mid-May, and you can be more expansive and focus on the bigger picture. You may be more optimistic in general, and feel it’s good to work on your plans. This can be strongest with a solar eclipse in this sector on April 20th, and there may be some big idea you have that you have the chance to do something with, and you can feel more hopeful and positive about what’s possible.
Mars tours the sector ruling your subconscious mind late March to mid-May, so this is after Ceres retrograde exits one of the sectors ruling your mind. This can be helpful for digging into your subconscious, working on old issues from the past, and letting go. You can feel ready to release baggage, and the more you do in a healthy way, the more you can feel free and ready to take advantage of any opportunity for success and advancement. You can welcome quiet time and time alone to rest as well.
Leo 2023 General Horoscope
Mars is retrograde to begin 2023 until mid-January, and this began in late October 2022. The retrograde is entirely in Gemini, which is your hopes, dreams, and friends sector. You may start 2023 questioning your future, uncertain of your dreams, and feeling you need to start over. That’s probably just the retrograde talking though, so put plans to give up on hold until after the retrograde ends.
Mars will tour your Zodiac sign late May to mid-July, and this can give you a big surge of energy for starting new projects and ventures. Mars in your sign happens roughly every two years, and it’s a great time for new beginnings that you can work on for the next two years. Focus on what excites you, animates you, you feel most driven to do, and then work on smart action to get started. You can take the initiative and don’t have to wait for someone else to do it for you.
Coming out of that though, Venus will retrograde in your sign July 22nd to September 3rd. This can slow your energy down considerably, and you may lack a work ethic, feel stuck, and can be impatient and impulsive but also stubborn and obstinate. You likely need to give yourself a break, and not expect yourself to do too much. Now, this energy can be excellent for second chances, as any retrogrades in your sign are. So, think about what you’d like a second chance with, and try to plan to take action during this retrograde.
Those of you Leos born August 19th and later can feel the start of the retrograde most, and those of you Leo born between August 2nd and 7th can feel the end of the retrograde most.
