The astrologist explained to Hoda: "2021 into 2022 was a deep clearing year, you've been asked to release anything that wasn't authentic for you, let it go."

She further added: "This next year for you is really a preparation, and 2023 is a landing for you," before detailing that: "You're going to go through your second Saturn return, which is a spiritual moment for you where you really nail your purpose."

Hoda gasped at the predictions, and even more so when Jennifer said: "There's a deeper iteration of your confidence, your ability to love, to be loved, but it's a divine love, it's a spiritual love."

The insightful conversation

As the two co-stars intently listened, Jennifer added that there would also be romantic love in her life soon, and when asked what Hoda really wants she enthusiastically confessed: "Well I really like my chart!" revealing that she would welcome that.
