12 Mantras To Cultivate 2023 Energy For The Year Ahead

12 Mantras To Cultivate 2023 Energy For The Year Ahead

2023 is a good change of pace from what 2022 was for a lot of people. In 2023 we enter a 7 numerology year, which is a year where the vibe is more about peace, faith, reflection, and going within. Emotions are high, but through introspection and spiritual clarity, this can be an enlightening year for a lot of people. There are some very important, once-every-decade transits occurring this year, which is why 2023 is such a game-changer.

Next year, Saturn ends its transit in Aquarius where it has been since 2020, and we all remember what happened in 2020 and the tone of that year. Saturn leaving this air sign closes that chapter, and it's time for the collective to heal. Saturn enters Pisces in mid-2023, and a spiritual awakening will be occurring. Another significant transit occurring in 2023 is Pluto's move out of Capricorn and into Aquarius. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and has been showing us the power struggles of this world and where they are coming from. Pluto moving into Aquarius gives the power back to the collective, and anything that isn’t authentic or freeing will transform.

Overall, 2023 is a powerful year for clarity, manifesting, and showing yourself the power you hold as the creator of your life. Learn from others, help highlight something for someone else and give them clarity as well, and work with the community around you to create something beautiful.

The world is going through a rebirth in 2023, and your mantra for the year reflects how you personally can move through this year while living your best and healthiest life.

Aries 2023 Mantra

“I see clearly with an open mind and heart. Everything is working out for me, and I have nothing to fear.”

2023 is part two of the good energy you were feeling this past year, Aries. Jupiter entered Aries last year and finishes its transit here moving into the new year until mid-2023. With positivity flowing into the year for you, a mantra that helps you keep up the momentum and stay in a healthy and positive perspective for the year is everything. Your biggest reminder this year is not to get lost in the unknown, and to see change and different cycles of your life as blessings and opportunities to create magic. With the first Eclipse of the year happening in Aries on April 20th, Aries will be moving through some big changes this year and the universe is giving you your very own firework show.

Taurus 2023 Mantra

“I let go of what doesn’t serve me or my growth, and I honor where I am right now.”

Taurus, you are ready for a fresh start. 2023 is bringing that for you. A good mantra for you over the next year, Taurus, reminds you to let go, as this is a reminder you need a little more than most. This coming year, you are letting go of what you cannot change and accepting peace as your way forward. With the North Node finishing its transit in Taurus this year, where it has been since early 2022, this is your year of self-discovery through acceptance and letting go of the past. The last Eclipse of 2023 will be also occurring in Taurus on October 28th, even further signifying this cycle of closure and a new beginning that you will be moving through this year.

Gemini 2023 Mantra

“I am worthy of a new beginning. I am ready for a miracle.”

2023 is a year of opportunity and emotional rejuvenation for you, Gemini. This is a year where you will be feeling more vulnerable than usual, and are ready to explore this new sense of wonder in life. Happy outcomes and open skies are what you have in store for the new year, and with Mars in your sign until the end of March, you have an extra boost of energy as well.

Cancer, you are tapping into your inner magic this year. 2023 is a year where you are practicing your manifestation rituals and creating the life you have been dreaming of. Your power of attraction is strong this year, and you are manifesting your goals in 2023. Jupiters' move into Taurus this year is positively enhancing your friendship zone and sense of community, and it takes a village. Your mantra for the new year is all about reminding yourself of the power you hold as a creator of your life, and something that also helps you align with your spirituality. This is a year full of magic for you, and your mantra will guide you toward this energy.

Leo 2023 Mantra

“I trust the divine timing of my life, and give myself and others grace.”

The key for you in 2023 is patience, Leo. This year is going at a slower pace than you are used to, but this energy is needed for a major recharge after all that took place this past year. 2023 is all about enjoying the moment and trusting the divine timing of your life. You are not missing out on anything, and what is for you will always find you.

You are in a time of emergence, and a time where you are living free in your authenticity. You understand that abundance is your birthright and you are tapping into this stream of magic that is steadily available to you this year.

Libra 2023 Mantra

“Things get better for me every day, and I am grateful for my life and all that is in it.”

2023 is a year of claiming your blessings. Happy outcomes and opportunities are coming into your life over the next year, and the sky is clearing for you, Libra. For your 2023 mantra, gratitude is the attitude. With a Solar Eclipse in your sign this year, you are moving through a year of personal transformation, and are embarking on a new path over the next year. Your mantra is your reminder of the blessings that fall into your lap when you trust yourself and the divine timing of the transformations you are moving through over the next year. 2023 wants to give you something special, and this is a year of happiness.

Scorpio 2023 Mantra

“I am a passionate and creative being, and my energy is powerful.”

Scorpio, you are all about the passion of life, and this year is no different. The perfect mantra for Scorpio in 2023 activates positive emotion within. Your mantra for the year is all about using your power as a creator in this life, and blazing your way forward to create your dreams. The South Node finishes its transit through Scorpio this year, and by the second half of 2023, you have a huge weight lifted off your shoulders. You are the phoenix rising from the ashes this year and are a force to be reckoned with in 2023. This is a year of passion, and your spirit is free.

Sagittarius 2023 Mantra

Sagittarius, you are going through a spiritual awakening in 2023. Over the next year, you are emotionally replenishing your energy, and growing as a soul. As a Sagittarian, you are spending more time in your safe space and getting away from the busyness of the world as much as possible this year. With the year closing with a Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius, 2023 has a lot to teach Sagittarius overall, and it’s all about listening to your body and giving your mind and spirit time to process what’s occurring. Your mantra for the year is all about connecting within and finding your strength here.

Capricorn 2023 Mantra

“I am free to choose my thoughts, beliefs, and path. I choose for myself, and I choose wisely.”

The perfect mantra for Capricorn for 2023 reflects the soul journey you are moving through this year. For you, Capricorn, you are looking for freedom, reflection, and new scenery. Travel is big on your mind over the next year, and you are thinking about where you want to explore next. You are taking yourself on some important adventures this year, and are ready to learn more. 2023 is a big year for Capricorns overall, as Pluto finally leaves your sign and starts entering its transit in Aquarius at the end of March 2023. Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008, and now that Pluto is saying its final goodbyes, you can take the lessons you have learned over the past decade or so, and use your newfound power to enhance your life.

Aquarius 2023 Mantra

“I am worthy of everything I want in life. What I seek, is seeking me.”

2023 for Aquarius is all about moving out of spaces that don’t serve you and finding yourself and your people. You have been going through something over the past few years with Saturn, a challenging planet, in your sign since 2020; and you’ve had to be strong for yourself in times when it felt like you were doing it all alone. Saturn ends its transit in your sign this year, and you get to move into a new chapter in your life. 2023 is a year of movement, but you are also in the building process of creating a new life for yourself as well. You are finding the balance between what is falling away from your life and what you are moving into, and your mantra for the year is a reminder that you can have it all if you allow it.

Pisces 2023 Mantra

“I am always at the right place at the right time, and I am divinely protected.”

2023 is karmic for Pisces. This year is a time of clarity, and also about finding your strength. Saturn begins its transit in your sign on May 7, 2023, where it will remain over the next few years. Saturn will be bringing the past, present, and future up for review, and will be helping you make sense of it all. Saturn teaches us where in our life the foundations or systems aren’t working, and how to build something more sustainable for ourselves. With Saturn in your sign; your image, persona, how you see yourself, and how others see you, are going through this sense of change and rebirth, and your mantra for the year will help keep you grounded through what is occurring this year.

Nicki Minaj’s Appearance At The ‘Barbie’ Premiere Is A Moment For The Culture

Nicki Minaj is opening up about the significance of her involvement in the upcoming Barbie film, highlighting how the brand has impacted her career as she attended the Los Angeles premiere of the highly anticipated project.

From the beginning of Minaj's rap career, which dates back to 2007 following the release of her first mixtape Playtime Is Over, the star coined the nickname Barbie after the Mattel doll. Minaj's love for the toy and the brand's representation ran so deep that she continued to incorporate the Barbie persona in practically almost every project, including the cover of Playtime Is Over, where the “Queen” rapper appeared as a figurine trapped inside a box. Over time, the emcee nicknamed her fanbase The Barbz and created numerous titled tracks containing the word Barbie. The list includes "Barbie Tingz," "Barbie Drip," "Barbie Dreams," and the newly released "Barbie World" featuring Ice Spice as a part of the Barbie soundtrack.
