Here's The Luckiest Day Of 2023 For Your Zodiac Sign
Cosmic energy is particularly ripe for padding your bank account, falling in love, and manifesting your dreams.
Sure, the astrology of 2023 is off to a pretty rocky start thanks to Mars and Mercury retrograde — but there’s still plenty of magic sprinkled throughout the year! For one, lucky Jupiter enters financially-oriented Taurus, bringing plenty of opportunities for us to fill our cups (and our pockets). Plus, truly miraculous transits offer an ideal time to manifest your ultimate dreams. If you want to know which days are ripe for the taking, it helps to know the luckiest day of 2023 for each zodiac sign — especially if you want to fully harness the joy and abundance of the year.
There are four total Mercury retrogrades in 2023, and they all backspin in analytical earth signs in 2023. When you factor in Saturn (the planet of tough love) moving into daydreamer Pisces, you get a cosmic cocktail of chaos. Despite this, there are plenty of lucky days in 2023 that are naturally perfect for action, manifestation, and blossoming relationships.
The lion's gate portal, which happens on Aug. 8 (8/8) each year, is known in the mystical space as a gateway into manifesting your ultimate desires. In numerology, the angel number on the date Nov. 11 (11/11), is also a day of fortune. The angel number 1111 is about growth and indicates a spiritual awakening, making it prime time for receiving blessings from the Universe.
The same sentiment goes for Apr. 11, when the sun and lucky Jupiter hook up in hotshot Aries. “When we have this cazimi [a planet being very close to the sun] in Aries, it will make us feel unstoppable to trailblaze a new path of hope for the future,” Desiree Roby Antila, astrologer and author of Sun Signs in Love, tells Bustle. “Lean into the cardinal fire energy of Aries to absorb the bold and fearless optimism of this once-a-year transit. This is a day for manifestation in the highest form.”
With so much magic in the cosmos, you’ll want to know the days to take action. Keep reading to find out the luckiest day of 2023 for your zodiac sign.
