In the first month of a brand-new year, you are reminded that luck is as much something you enjoy as it is something you create.
For many, the end of the year was challenging as it felt like the lucky break or moment was just out of their reach.
You had dreams and desires and were starting to make plans, yet no matter what you did, it felt like it never got any closer.
As the new year begins, the month ahead has Mercury, Mars, and Uranus turning direct.
This represents an intensely lucky time for all zodiac signs as it begins until April 21, 2023, when all planets will be direct.
When all planets are directed, you are encouraged to take action and create change within your life, which is exactly what allows you to choose and create lucky outcomes.
Having all planets direct for about four months is an extended period, which means that as Uranus turns direct on the 22nd, the last planet to do so, you are being freed from the limitations that have set you back.
It is truly an amazingly lucky time to trust the universe and know in your heart that it is time to act.
Here is each zodiac sign’s luckiest day of the month for January 2023:

Uranus is known as the great awakener because its changes ripple through your life in the most unexpected ways. In Taurus, it is activating your luck sector; however, since it has been retrograded since August, cultivating success or abundance may have felt challenging. Now, as it turns direct, you will once again feel like you are in the flow of divine energies, allowing you to create your lucky opportunities.
(September 23 – October 22)
Luckiest day for Libra: 12
Luckiest days for love: 18
Mars is the planet of action, but since the end of October, when it turned retrograde, that has been hard to come by. Because Gemini, where Mars has been since August, rules all aspects of luck within your life, you may have felt that life has been more challenging than normal. All of that will change as Mars turns direct within Gemini mid-month, giving you the green light to start taking action to create the life of your dreams.
(October 23 – November 21)

The Full Moon in Cancer echoes back to the New Moon in Cancer at the end of June 2022. Cancer rules lucky opportunities in your life, which means that something is about to come to fruition for you alongside this lunation. Cancer energy rules travel, new adventures, learning and even perspectives of the higher self. Look for spaces where these themes may arise, and then allow yourself to start writing your own story instead of thinking you are destined to live that of others.
(November 22 – December 21)
Luckiest day for Sagittarius: 18
Luckiest days for love: 12
Capricorn energy is always important as it rules what and who you value. This is not just about luck but also love. Capricorn energy helps you fundamentally clarify your motivating factor for making decisions so that you can create a life based on your truth. Mercury has been retrograde within this sign since the end of the year; now, as it sets to turn direct, it is time to take what you have learned and start putting it into action.
