Guru by Bangkok Post's horoscope for 2023
As per our little New Year tradition, Guru by Bangkok Post presents a yearly horoscope. Let's see what next year has in store for you.
Mar 21 – Apr 19
(⛹) Around February or March, a big upheaval may happen and its consequences will last for months. Brace yourself for more challenges and don't be too hard on yourself when things that you can't control disrupt your progress. You'll find out that you're more resilient than you think. Someone you're acquainted with may become your new sworn enemy.
(฿) You may secure a new source of passive income. You're likely to make more money next year than you did this year by a sizeable margin. However, you may have to pay for something unexpected like an accident or a hospital stay in the third quarter. Staying thrifty is the best policy.
(♥) You meet someone who's more interesting than your current love in many ways. Even though you may be able to resist your attraction toward them in the beginning, you may eventually give in. You'll have to ask yourself if you want to settle for someone or seek true love.
(⚤) If you're getting to know someone, you two increasingly grow fond of each other. S/he is likely to be one of the greatest loves or the greatest love of your life. If you're not seeing anyone, you're like to meet someone whom you see yourself having a serious relationship with in the second quarter.
Apr 20 – May 20
(⛹) An important meeting may take place before June. You're likely to meet someone who can help realise your career plan. You may achieve something great or beyond your expectations before the fourth quarter starts. The more successful you are the lesser colleagues like you. You may not like changes but they may be better for you in the long run.
(฿) You have many social events to attend during the first half of next year and your wallet will take a hit. You may gain a long-term side hustle or a passive income source. After June, you may decide to renovate your home or buy your first house. You won't be short on cash throughout next year, though.
(♥) Circumstances cause you two to live apart for several months. One of you has to travel a lot for work and doesn't have much time for the other. There's likely to be an emotional distance between you two during the second half of 2023 and it into 2024.
(⚤) You may meet your dreamboat who seems to like you back. You two share many things in common, from personal values to mindsets. Similarity attracts. However, winning parental approval may not be so easy and that would be the biggest hurdle in your relationship.
May 21 – Jun 20
(⛹) You may get to do several things you've never done before. You'll feel proud of yourself for going out of your comfort zone and challenging any perception you have of yourself. In Mama Ru's wise words, you'll overcome your inner saboteur. You may find out that you are happier when you stop trying to live up to social expectations or expectations you have for yourself.
(฿) Although your salary becomes bigger every year, don't buy a car or a big house if you don't have a real need for it. Don't buy it just so people stop asking. Buy what you feel comfortable buying. It's better to live within or below your means than to downsize later. You may argue with a close friend because of money.
(♥) Your relationship is likely to become rocky for a good chunk of 2023. Someone who's on standby to steal your lover away makes him/herself known and you'll have to keep an eye on her/him for many months. However, this complicated situation is likely to be resolved in early November.
(⚤) Your friend makes take issue with you seeing multiple people at the same time but you can't help that you meet several potential dates in short succession. Your older relative may try to hook you up with single children of their friends. You also meet interesting people at parties and social events. If you don't know who to choose, ask for help from someone who knows you best.
Jun 21 – Jul 22
(⛹) Brace yourself for difficult situations and unexpected changes. You may achieve a new benchmark despite a few setbacks. You'll perform really well at work and receive praise. You may be promoted to a higher position and people fawn over you because you're somebody. Don't let success go to your head and don't forget the people who were with you from day one.
(฿) You make more money in the first six months but you also spend a lot more. You are more susceptible to retail therapy. You may decide to book several vacations well in advance. During the second half of the year, you become more mindful with money and savings to make up for what you already spent.
(♥) Couples make several shared dreams come true. Their relationship will be put to the test but they will come away closer than ever. You're each other’s ride or die. Couples who are living together or are planning to wed may obtain a marriage licence in the middle of 2023.
(⚤) If you're already getting to know someone, the spark between you two slowly dies down by the end of March. From June to October, you're likely to meet many interesting matches and several people may ask for your Line ID in person and online. You're likely to go Facebook official with someone before 2023 ends.
Jul 23 – Aug 22
(⛹) From May, career prospects become brighter. Better changes are likely to happen in your work life. Many opportunities come your way and you can't believe how fortunate you are. Someone very capable may mentor you and you should show how thankful you are to have them for guidance.
(฿) Although you have to pay for more things next year, you're very likely to exceed your income goal. The more people you know, the more money-making opportunities come your way. You manage to stay financially disciplined for most of next year and may be surprised by how much money you can save in 2023.
(♥) Your love is likely to grow sweeter and more romantic. Your partner is your personal lucky cat who brings you good news and opportunities. If you want to open a business with them, it'll become a success. Unmarried couples are likely to tie the knot next year or at least move in together.
(⚤) You have flirty chats here and there with your online matches but none really interest you. You focus on becoming a better version of yourself and stay on that path for most of next year. Around June, you may suddenly become a hopeless romantic and actively seek dates. You may no longer be single by November.
Aug 23 – Sept 22
(⛹) It'll be difficult for you to maintain a healthy work-life balance during the first quarter. It's likely that you have to drop whatever you do to attend to urgent tasks. After that, you'll have more breathers and won't burn yourself out. You'll get to learn new skills and perform tasks outside your usual job description. You may make a big leap forward on your career ladder and everyone is envious of your success.
(฿) Until May, you may not be able to keep up with your savings goal. Although you make more money, you also spend more. Your financial standing will improve during the last six months as you may secure a new source of income. If you've been paying for something in monthly instalments, you'll finally be able to pay it off.
(♥) Couples are there for each other through thick and thin. They take turns to be each other's source of support and strength. You may think you listen to your partner but sometimes it's better to say nothing. S/he sometimes wants to complain and doesn't want to be told what to do, no matter how helpful you think you are.
(⚤) You may see two people at the same time. You'll meet them through work or via your social media connections early next year. Your ex may also try to get back together with you. You're likely to deal with these three people for most of next year. You'll find who's right for you, eventually.
Sept 23 – Oct 22
(⛹) Brace yourself for challenging tasks in the first quarter. You'll be surprised that you can overcome something you think you couldn't. From May, work life becomes smoother and you may be promoted to lead a new project. Brace yourself for haters who are envious of your success and status at the office. Pay the peanut gallery no mind.
(฿) Through your expanding connections come more income opportunities. Your old friends bring you good news. The biggest financial gain awaits you in the third quarter. However, you're likely to be more drawn to gambling and high-risk investment and may lose a lot of money.
(♥) If you're cheating on your partner, you may become more emotionally and sexually involved with the person on the side. The truth may eventually come out and you would be judged harshly by friends and family members who root for your relationship. The price you'll have to pay to leave your current love for a new one may prove to be too costly.
(⚤) You'll meet several potential lovers in various ways. Your friend or relative may introduce them to you. You may meet them at parties or while enjoying a new hobby. However, it'll come down to only two people whom you're really into. It's likely that you can't decide and you'll keep seeing them both in 2023 and even through to early 2024.
Oct 23 – Nov 21
(⛹) During the first half of 2023, what seems difficult may turn out to be easy. You may surprise yourself with how much you can do when you buckle down and focus. Whether you're a salary earner or a freelancer, you'll receive more work opportunities next year. Don't work too hard or you may experience burnout, office syndrome or even depression during the second half of 2023.
(฿) Business owners make more money despite their fear of people spending less. You'll have more cash and assets. If you rent right now, you may own a house next year. If you have debts, you may become debt-free. However, several scammers and fraudsters are on the cards around July and August.
(♥) Couples continue to be there for each other through thick and thin. They are also each other's sources of support and strength. Bantering and bickering become a norm in your relationship but outsiders may think you two don't get along. Trying couples are likely to become parents. Unmarried couples may skip the wedding and go straight to the marriage licence.
(⚤) You'll get to know several interesting people and go on dates with them. An older relative who you respect and is close to may hook you up with someone eligible. You'll finally realise what qualities you're looking for in a partner. You may move in with someone or even get married before 2023 ends.
Nov 22 – Dec 21
(⛹) During the first six months, you may discover your true calling. You'll get to do what you really want to do for a living. If you're an artist, you may meet a patron in July or August. S/he has been following your work from the beginning. If you're a civil servant, you may be assigned to a new position that comes with more power.
(฿) Until April, money comes and goes. You don't get to save much because there is always something unexpected that you have to pay for. If you're a ricewinner, you may gain a new income stream or a dependent of yours may become financially independent. You may buy big gifts to thank those who have been helpful to you.
(♥) There seem to be no problems in your relationship until May. Around August, you may meet someone who acts too friendly with your partner but you have nothing to truly worry about. In the last quarter of 2023, you two may go on a honeymoon trip for a week or even longer.
(⚤) Until June, you'll get to meet new matches but none develop into a relationship. After that, you get to meet someone who's very your type and the feelings will be mutual. However, your competition may show up and you'll have to put up a good fight to win this love race.
Dec 22 – Jan 19
(⛹) Your workload becomes lighter during the first quarter. You may get to do things that you don't usually do and become an integral part of successful projects. You enjoy your work more as you like to try different things. Many new people will be added to your business contact. Around July or August, you may receive a big praise or a great job offer.
(฿) Business owners make more revenue, despite their concerns about the economic recession. If you have several income streams, you may lose one but will be able to secure a new one soon afterwards. Someone may try to blackmail you or ask for a bribe. If you've been a renter, you'll finally become a homeowner.
(♥) If you're with your first love or the biggest love of your life, you two are likely to stay together. If not, brace yourself for a shaky phase in your current relationship. Your first love or the one that got away may return to your life and they still make your heart flutter. Dramaaa.
(⚤) If you're getting to know someone, your relationship will gradually grow throughout the next year. If you're not seeing anyone, love at first sight/swipe awaits you early next year. Either way, you may move in together with someone during the second half of 2023.
Jan 20 – Feb 18
(⛹) Work-wise, big changes await you next year. In the first quarter, you may start a new job after training your successor. A great opportunity that many want for themselves may be given to you with little effort on your part. Oh, colleagues are likely to become envious of your success. They aren't necessarily bad people as it's more about their own insecurities and self-doubt.
(฿) Until April, money comes and goes and you'll have to pay for several things that are expensive and can't wait. Afterwards, you become more financially disciplined and secure a long-term source of supplementary income. If you have several debts, you're likely to become debt-free before 2023 ends. Congrats in advance.
(♥) From April, circumstances cause you two to enter a long-distance relationship. If so, your relationship will become rocky from September. You may be tempted to enter a ménage à trois but it may backfire. You may feel like you want to spend alone time to improve yourself in various aspects.
(⚤) After April (we aren't sure why April keeps coming up either), you may experience love at first sight/swipe and you two become immediately enamoured with each other. S/he is likely to come from a different background or even another country. This may cause you to be more cultured as you're exposed to a different way of life or thinking.
Feb 19 – Mar 20
(⛹) There's a good chance that your work life will be better next year. You may obtain new skills, make more money or have more power in the office. A dozen of business trips or so await you and there will be a few times when you feel exhausted. Business owners may enter a new market and you'll run your empire with great enthusiasm.
(฿) You'll be making a lot of money for the first six months of next year. However, during the third quarter, you may not manage your wealth as well as you should. You may be tempted to get involved with online gambling. A new source of long-term passive income awaits you during the fourth quarter.
(♥) Couples may have serious fights from July to October. You'll have to be more careful with what you say as your partner is more likely to take offence even when it's not intended. Overall, your relationship isn't smooth and the deep bond between you two will be put to a test but things will get better towards the end of 2023.
(⚤) You're busy at the beginning of next year that you don't even think about dating. There's no sign of any possible relationships during the first six months but you may enjoy some flirty chats with your online matches. Someone you're already familiar with may be secretly in love with you all along.
