Welcome to 2023, everyone. This bright, shiny new year begins on a messy note as we enter with two major retrogrades. Fortunately, we will see the end of both retrogrades this month when Mars moves forward in Gemini on the 12th and Mercury moves forward in Capricorn on the 18th. So if the vibes have been feeling a bit off the last few months, you’re about to get some relief.
With the planets going forward, we too are moving ahead into new and exciting fashion when Venus enters innovative Aquarius on the 2nd. This is a great time to experiment with new trends, color patterns, and explore what the ideal “you” would wear. Nothing is too weird to try. However, don’t go shopping for the sake of shopping. When the sun enters Aquarius on the 20th, you need to keep sustainability in mind as well, so make sure you are purchasing responsibly. Try hitting the thrift store for some unique fits.
The end of the month gets a little dreamier when Venus enters Pisces on the 26th, shifting our sartorial focus to a richer, more romantic style. Now is the time for cozy outfits, celestial vibes, and a pastel color palette to help us ride out the rest of winter.
So what do the cosmos have planned for your wardrobe at the start of 2023? Check your stylescope below—remember to check your sun, rising, and Venus sign to get the best insight (and more outfit ideas).
