Your May 2022 Astrological Forecast Is Here
May 2022 comes on the heels of the new moon and eclipse in Taurus. Your idea of stability and wealth may have been challenged in quite a harsh, sudden manner. We start off the month on a more cheerful note on May 1, with Venus conjunct Jupiter in Pisces. Romanticism is flying high. This is a great time to go on a first date, especially for Pisces and Virgo.
What to Expect This Month
On May 4 and May 5, the sun is conjunct Uranus in Taurus. This is a great day when the impulse to change is heightened and highlighted. It may feel harsh for some Taureans, especially those who have a harder time with change, but trust that it’s for the best. Mercury goes retrograde on the 10th in the sign of Gemini. Beware about any actions or agreements you come to around this date, as they may need to be revisited later. Avoid big purchases and signing contracts – figurative and literal.
Around the middle of the month, on May 15 and May 16, sun in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius followed by the full moon and eclipse in Scorpio on the 16th. This continues with the tension between Taurus and the more Uranian sign of change Aquarius, this time adding Saturn to the mix. The impulse to change and innovate is still there, but it starts to be challenged by some practical matters that forces limits upon change. With the full moon and eclipse, there is release, but it can be a very chaotic and traumatic release.
On May 17 and May 18, Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. This energy is there for the taking, but it can be used for good or for ill. It can be a burst of creative inspiration for many, especially Scorpio, from where great creative works can be born. It can also be a time for some people to get cheated on and conned. Be careful around this time; some very skillful conmen and people that don’t necessarily have the right intentions are out there. On May 18-20, there’s a Trine between the sun in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. This is a great day for a healing session, therapy, or shadow work. Trauma comes to the forefront in a harmonious manner to be addressed and healed.
Finally, we end the month on May 28-30, with Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aries. We started off with quite a feminine energy that’s all about being magnetic, and we end off on a more masculine note that’s all about getting empowered and embracing the bountiful energy that’s out there for the taking.
What This Means for Your Zodiac’s Horoscope
Affirmation: “I do my best work when I listen to my intuition first.”
This month calls you to be more balanced in your approach to life and finally rewards you with a burst of energy by the end. The first conjunction between Venus and Jupiter can be challenging for you, as it encourages you to look within and trust your gut – two things that don’t come too easily for you. Around the 4th and 5th, be careful with your finances. You may have to deal with an unexpected expense or bill. The month ends on a beautiful note for you. You will have plenty of energy to complete all of your projects and then some. You feel powerful and strong.
Affirmation: “I can adapt to change, I can thrive with change.”
The new moon from the past month may have shaken things a bit for you, but it was just a small sample of what this month has in store for you. May will be a rollercoaster, full of thrills but also drops. The best thing you can do is embrace change. The Taureans that go with the flow and learn to see the beauty in change are the ones who will get the most enjoyment out of the month. Your love life will be hectic around the full moon and eclipse. Trust that everything is happening for your highest good. Some of you will meet your soulmate right after all of this is over.
Affirmation: “I question my own beliefs so they don’t limit me.”
The transit that will affect you the most is Mercury retrograde on the 10th. You’re used to doing things a mile a minute, and it will force you to slow down and look within. Do some journaling or art. Learn how to listen to yourself speaking. You will experience big career moments, first at the beginning of the month (where you’ll feel like you have a thousand opportunities calling your name) and then by the end of the month (where you’ll be ready to take action and become unstoppable).
Affirmation: “Love is directed my way.”
Whether you’ve been trying to meet someone new or release your ex and finally move on, this will finally manifest with the Trine between the Sun and Pluto of the 18th to the 20th. If you’ve been in pain, healing energies will come your way. If you do end up meeting someone, it will be someone who will grow to love you deeply exactly as you are, but who will also encourage you to grow and change.
Affirmation: “I release anything that’s bringing me down.”
The full moon in Scorpio is a great time to let go of anything in your home life that isn’t serving you anymore. Declutter your space and get rid of any items that don’t bring you joy anymore. All of that empty space will help you manifest anything you want to attract into your life later on.
Affirmation: “I use my words to build my reality.”
The beginning of the month is a great time for you to meet someone new or go on a first date. By contrast, mistrust anyone you meet around the 17th and the 18th, as you’ll be particularly prone to being duped by a suitor or lover. The energy around the full moon will feel intense, but you may finally drop some anxious attachments and toxic communication patterns if you learn to embrace said energy.
Affirmation: “I go slowly and enjoy the present moment.”
You feel like your luck in love has been waning. It is not like it is a complete drought of fun and romance, but it is rare and hard to come by. By the end of the month, things will change drastically, but be patient until then. A nice partner who matches up to your ideal will appear. Take things slow until Mercury goes direct. Do not take anyone who wants to go too quickly seriously. Slow and steady wins the race.
Affirmation: “Healing in my love life is just around the corner.”
If you want a brand new beginning with a current partner or to meet someone who finally lives up to your standards, pay attention to what happens around the full moon and eclipse. It will reveal something key about yourself that you’re trying to find in others instead of healing in yourself. Once you gain this insight, you will finally find the missing piece that’s been holding up your love life.
Affirmation: “I am magnetic.”
A surge of creativity is coming your way by the end of the month. You will become a magnet for all sorts of opportunities, both in love and career. However, you will have to purge your subconscious mind before this and do some serious healing to truly embrace these opportunities and avoid seeing them vanish.
Affirmation: “I express myself to heal my soul.”
Self-expression will be big for you this month. Whether you’re an artist or you simply learn to be more assertive, you will make big steps in this area. You will be incredibly fertile this month – do with that information what you will! The Trine of 18th to the 20th will be a time of respite after your string of unlucky events. You will shine through making art from your pain and your trauma or simply embracing it quietly.
Affirmation: “I grow stronger in adversity.”
This will be a bit of a difficult month for you. However, if you learn from the lessons that the universe throws your way, you can blossom in quite a beautiful way by the end. Mercury retrograde in particular will hit you hard. Take it easy until it goes direct next month. Refrain from changing your life in big, dramatic ways just yet. Introspect and reflect.
Affirmation: “I am wise and attract wealth.”
The beginning of the month is the best time for you to find love. After Mercury goes retrograde, try to avoid dating new people if you can. As Venus, the planet of valuables is exalted on your own sign and being magnified by Jupiter, this is also a great time to manifest wealth. After the 10th and especially around the 18th, however, there will be some ill-intentioned people who will notice your good heart and tendency to be the best in people and try to con you. Do not fall for it!
What the Full Snow Moon in Leo Means for You
This coming week, we feel the roar of the full moon in Leo. As always, on a full moon, Lady Luna is reflecting the complete light of the sun (despite this being known as the Snow Moon in the northern hemisphere!) and no one embodies the sun and its full shining glory like the sign of the lion.
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and connected to creativity, self-expression and an almost childlike joy (this is why many Leos are so proud of their little cubs). Can the lion sometimes roar a little bit too loud demanding his place in the spotlight with a tendency towards vanity? Sure, but if you’re looking for a time to shine bright and embrace that energy then be sure to work with some of the rituals below to really harness the power of this full moon. Check out where 16° of Leo falls in your chart – this is the area of life where you are at your most creative and dramatic, where you feel called to take the lead with pride!
Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius signs are feeling the changes the most this full moon. These are all signs that by their nature dislike change unless it is meaningful, so be prepared to step out of your comfort zone and embrace the changes that are starting to kick off in force this year. Remember we are more than just our sun sign, so check if your moon rising or Venus falls under any of these zodiac signs – it may explain how you are feeling!
No More Retro-Shade!
Are you feeling kind of over the amount of time we spent with Mercury and Venus in retrograde? Many of you would’ve seen the reappearance of certain themes especially in the realm of relationships and miscommunication? Well, the good news is that the energy is certainly picking up from now all the way until April 29th as we currently have zero – that’s correct, zero – planets in backward motion! Hurrah! I hear you cry and yes it will be great to finally feel the move of stagnancy that has been hanging around since the beginning of the year.
On this full moon, we finally have Mars and Venus meeting up together in a beautiful conjunction in the sky – a pairing of the divine feminine and masculine. If you are a Virgo or Cancer rising, this is powerful news in all things relationship and love. Certainly there will be some fire and activity. This is a great time to connect with people especially if you’ve been feeling stuck. The weather in Dubai is beautiful right now and so why not spend some time meeting up with other people, firing up ideas (this conjunction is trying to tap into revolutionary and maverick Uranus)?
Full Moon Mantras
Below are some suggested mantras to incorporate into your full moon rituals in order for you to make the most of this energy surge. If you have crystals, then the full moon is a wonderful time to clean them in some water and Himalayan salt and charge them under the moonlight to really activate their power. Remember: on full moons, we release what has been highlighted over the past month. We can do this through celebration, reflection, or possibly even through an emotional outburst. Allow whatever comes up to ensure you feel the power of each of these mantras.
Aries & Libra
Leo is all about courage, and your ritual for this full moon is about embracing barriers at work and knowing that you are enough when you learn to take the lead as well as collaborate. It is asking if you find more balance between your professional and private life.
Full Moon Mantra: I am enough, and I attract balance when I choose myself.
Taurus & Scorpio
The people in your life can be incredibly important in helping you find self-expression and joy as well as a sense of peace. Just remember to let them in! This can also be a great moment to understand who needs to take more of a leading role in your life and who may be draining your light. Remember to stay in alignment with those who allow you to shine in your most authentic way.
Full Moon Mantra: I attract people who embrace my strengths and support me in my challenges.
Gemini & Sagittarius
This year is bringing plenty of spiritual insights and situations – remember there are no such thing as coincidences! It is important you find moments and rituals within your busy day to embrace the deeper wisdom available to you. This full moon is asking you to tap into your intuition, both in your body and in your soul, and you ask yourself, “Where am I seeking healing?”
Full Moon Mantra: I am healing every day in every way and there is nothing to fear.
Cancer & Capricorn
Sometimes, showing up fully as yourself makes you feel indulgent or egotistical, but the Leo aspect of this moon is positively pushing you to be daring and take the limelight. Whether it’s in your one-on-one relationships or through the people you interact with every day, ask yourself if there is a deeper more authentic you wanting to come through.
Full Moon Mantra: I commit to being authentically and unashamedly me in all aspects of life.
Leo & Aquarius
Sometimes, we are called to splurge and other times, we are called to save – but this full moon is illuminating where you put your money, time, focus, and values of what is important to you. Money is energy just like everything else; hold it too tight and it does not flourish, be foolhardy with it and abundance flows away from you. This full moon, ask yourself where do you feel the most and least abundant in life.
Full Moon Mantra: I am attracting abundance every day and I am worthy of it all.
Virgo & Pisces
Now that Mercury is out of retrograde, stop thinking about how you can communicate your needs most clearly. This full moon will be related to mindset and learning, so you may find opportunities to express yourself in big or small ways – release what needs to be said and you may find your words have true power.
Full Moon Mantra: I express myself with courage and clarity to claim what is already mine.
What January’s Full Moon in Cancer Means For You
We have the first full moon of 2022 today,January 18. Here, Lady Luna will be in her home sign of Cancer, offering nurturing maternal water energy that is associated with the crab zodiac. At first, the deep sensitivity of Cancer may seem like a passive way to begin the year. However, along with the Aries, Libra, and Capricorn zodiac signs, Cancer is a cardinal sign and all about active love and care, putting nurturing tendencies into action. Cancer asks us, “How can I live a more intuitive life?” and “How can the love I feel be put into active service for the world?”
Perhaps you express love through acts of service, or perhaps you know your physical touch has a loving effect on others? One of the best ways to put the emotion of this full moon into positive and intentional action is to lean into your own personal love language. Continue reading for some impactful full moon mantras for your sun sign! By now, you’ve made your New Year’s resolutions and perhaps even set intentions at the new moon onJanuary 2, so why does it still feel like the momentum we’ve been expecting is yet to show up?
Consider this your permission slip to hold fire. This year, we are starting off slowly with a strong intention to come into alignment. Collectively, we’ve been through a huge amount in 2021 and, whilst 2022 is going to bring disruptive and revolutionary changes later this year, we are currently being gifted with a moment to reorient ourselves and get ready.
Mercury and Venus Retrograde
There is a very strong likelihood that this full moon will bring to light resolutions – whether you made them consciously or not – that no longer feel in tune with the energy you are bringing into this year. So, when doing the full moon ritual suggested below, be open to really see what needs fine-tuning. Perhaps you have set some career goals, but in this January downtime, you realise you would like to explore another area? You may be craving or have already started a new health routine? Is it making you feel nourished and good?
This pause is welcome as Mercury stationed retrograde alongside Venus this past weekend for the first of four retrogrades that will occur this year. Venus is the planet of love and value, and has been regressing since December. From now until February 3 (when they start to station direct again – hurrah!), we are being asked to take a deep look at communication, relationships, dialogue, and what areas we put our personal value in.
One question you may want to ask yourself whether you are single or not is, “What is important to me in relationships?” Now is a brilliant time to assess whether you are articulating your needs either verbally or energetically. This full moon is deeply sensitive and brings heightened emotions around January 18. If you are beating yourself up for not making progress, then see if you can lean into retrograde energy for insights. The new moon in Aquarius in February will bring about change before you know it!
Cancer Full Moon ‘Love Language’ Theme for Your Zodiac Sign
Do check both your Sun and Moon signs for your full moon mantra for this week.
Aries/Leo/Sagittarius – Quality Time
The key question for our Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius signs is: Have you been attending to yourself enough? We look to your leadership when it comes to stepping into what makes you feel alive. If you are feeling neglected or tense, the invitation is to look at where you can find some joy. What about planning a holiday? Or looking into a course or passion where you can connect with others?
Full Moon Mantra: “I release negativity and step fully into what brings me joy.”
Taurus/Virgo/Capricorn – Physical Touch
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are Earth signs and often seen as beacons of strength, propping everybody else up and offering practical advice on call. However, during times of increased isolation, feelings of disconnect can build up. More than anyone, you experience the world through your senses. Why not treat yourself to a massage or a makeover? If all else fails, find someone you really feel you can be at home with and give them a huge hug. They may just need it, too.
Full Moon Mantra: “I release the need for control. I have an ocean of abundant resources around me.”
Gemini/Libra/Aquarius – Words of Affirmation
For Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius signs, the main message this full moon is to be open to inspiration from the cosmos. Maybe you love to write? Perhaps you are more of a TikTok-type communicator? Either way, your ideas and the way you express them have power over the people around you, so seek out opportunities to connect with people and share your ideas – whether online or in-person!
Full Moon Mantra: “I release the old narratives that no longer serve me. I embrace all new concepts life is showing me.”
Cancer/Pisces/Scorpio – Receiving Gifts
This full moon is wonderful for you! Yes, it’s highly sensitive and can leave you feeling the vulnerability you often try to hide – but therein lies the treasure. Unclear on what your next steps are? Feeling scared, but also excited for the changes that are coming? Meditate under the light of Lady Luna and ask to receive wisdom. Your innate intuition is activated right now!
Full Moon Mantra: “I release barriers between myself and my dreams. I am powerful and beautiful beyond measure.”

Pisces, Your 2022 Horoscope Predicts the Best Year Ever
For Pisces, 2022 is a reality check. It’s about snapping out of a dream – not to discourage or out of a bad place, but to finally take the necessary actions to get make their dreams a reality in the year to come. Pisces have a strong intuition and even stronger imagination, which can make or break their luck in 2022. With a strong, clear, and level-headed perspective, they can launch their careers, advance their love life, and liven up their quality of life.
Pisces, Who You Really Are
Pisces are dreamy, imaginative, and emotionally aware. These signs are highly intuitive, so they can understand situations in ways others can’t. You’re in step with your feelings, making you a compassionate empath, which is due to the fact you’re a water sign. As a mutable sign, you can shapeshift and adapt to any given curveball your way. Being ruled by Neptune, you’re deeply entwined with otherworldly topics like mysticism and magic. However, this also makes it difficult for you to see reality clearly.
The twelfth house of the subconscious is your ruling house, so you value your psychology and are concerned with why others do what they do. This also makes you incredibly creative because your imagination never stops running. You’re a dreamer and find the best, most romantic ways of living in your truth.
Career and Money
Venus goes retrograde in Capricorn from January 1 to 29, so it’s a good idea to slow down and reassess the reality of your goals. You may have incredible ideas for your career or professional endeavours, but this period is going to test you on whether you can be realistic with the pursuit. However, this is an empowering force that will strengthen your already-motivated dedication and inspire you to take action. Are you satisfied at work? Do you feel empowered at your job? Whatever the answer, this year will help you make appropriate moves.
During May, you’ll feel extra motivated to take charge of your finances and follow through with your money goals – whatever they should be – as Venus enters your house of money during this time. What’s more, Jupiter will be moving from Aries into your native sign, making this year an extra lucky year for finances and professional matters.
Friends and Family
When Jupiter enters Pisces in 2022, you’ll feel more connected with your deeper relationships, a.k.a. your friends and family. This shift is going to highlight the aspects you need to address in these relationships – are you feeling included? It’s time to open up, get involved in your community, and make time for your family.
Uranus will be going retrograde in Taurus from January 18 to August 24, meaning there may be some changes or radical realisations within your friendships to look out for. This may not be sinister, as Taureans crave comfort and you crave acceptance, so the common theme is that you’re looking for a place to call home, whether that be with your family or your chosen family or friends.
Love and Romance
As Jupiter enters your native sign, you can feel especially drawn to romance and love, if not pursued by others. This bubbling excitement may have you fantasise even more than you do, so it’s important to keep a level head when it comes to love, especially serious commitments. It’s okay to feel giddy and excited about your love life, but losing yourself in a fantasy can cause a lot of problems in the long run.
April will be an especially lucky time in love for you, as Venus enters your native sign. You may feel extra comfortable and complacent, which can help you arrive at the next step. If you’re single, this could be an ideal period to put yourself out there as you’ll feel more like yourself. If you’re committed, there’s a chance you could find yourself euphoric or even looking to advance your relationship to the next level.
Pisces, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
Find your footing in 2022 by doing reality checks. If you feel you’ve bitten off more than you can chew this year, it’s a good idea to lay out the groundwork – otherwise known as boundaries – for how you process and move forward in life. Get serious about your goals, create a framework, and get to work!
Cancer, Your 2022 Horoscope Is Looking Fruitful
For Cancers, this year will encourage inner growth as you seek to expand your personal beliefs, your relationships, and your pockets. This is a time to seek new experiences and sharpen your intuitive growth. 2022 is all about physical and spiritual expansion, so you can look forward to a year of abundance and travel. You’re typically the caregiver of those around you and, this year, you’ll be converting that nurturing power to your personal growth.
Cancer, Who You Really Are
Cancers are intuitive, sensitive, and nurturing. Feeling safe, helping others grow, and doing inner work are all huge values to you. Because you’re ruled by the moon, you’re deeply connected with your moods and emotions, although the intensity of your own feelings can often get the better of you, causing you to sometimes spiral or become on edge. As a cardinal sign, you’re filled with sharp instincts and bright ideas, so you have the grit to take initiative and responsibility. Your fourth house ruler of home and family makes you sentimental and family-oriented.
Being a water sign means you have a deep connection with your intuitive side and are psychic to some degree.
These signs feel most at home when they’re taking care of themselves and others. They’re sacrificial; they will do just about anything to ensure the safety and comfort of others. Being ruled by the moon gives them sharp insight into the feelings of not only themselves, but also others – their strongest suit is being an empath and their ability to read a room and address any discomfort.
Career and Money
As Venus enters its retrograde from January 1 to 29, you may feel extra obligated to hone in on your inner boss. You’ll find yourself finding new streams of income and perhaps even dabbling in a new business venture with all the ambition in the air during this time. That’s because this retrograde is asking you to slow down, so you can create a strategy to propel your finances and your career forward.
Jupiter in Pisces is in your house of philosophy, meaning you’ll find yourself exploring different streams of income or experimenting with different revenues. You may even find yourself in a foreign place, whether it’s a job transfer, a new job offer, or a work-from-home opportunity. In order for you to grow, it’s important that you explore the different opportunities that will come your way this year.
Friends and Family
This year is all about the bigger picture, and you may find yourself more involved with your community than ever as Venus retrograde moves into your house of friendships and society. This period is about reflecting on your public life and about how you fit in your inner circle.
Jupiter being in Pisces for most of 2022, you may be in search of expanding your family and friendships. This transit is moving into your house of philosophy, so sincere reflection on what it means to be part of a family is a huge theme for you this year, but so is the possibility of expanding your family. This year could mean evaluating both what it means to have a reciprocal partnership with others and your role in your domestic and platonic relationships.
Love and Romance
Love is headed your direction, and it’s going to make waves in the most spectacular of ways. Venus retrograde is happening in your areas of partners and relations, so you can feel Capricorn’s strong and stable energy to cement a positive, uplifting love life in 2022. This period is a good time to reflect on your past relationships – what worked and what didn’t. Shifting focus on how you operate in your relationships will make way for healthy relationships.
With Jupiter in Pisces moving into your house of philosophy and expansion, you can expect there to be playful exploration in your love life. You’re in the midst of figuring out what turns you on and experimenting in areas of love. If you’re single, this could mean dating will be eye-opening as it helps you see things from different perspectives. If you’re committed, this is an auspicious time to grow deeper in your connection with your partner, learn new things, travel, or even take your relationship to the next level (like marriage or expanding a family).
Cancer, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
2022 is a year of growth and expansion for you, so it’s important to open up to the newness that will greet you in the year to come. Make those travel plans and prioritise your love life because you’re about to realise magnificent growth – just be sure you keep an open mind.
Aquarius, 2022 Is About Getting Out of Your Comfort Zone
For Aquarius, 2022 is a year of vulnerability and opening up to new experiences. Getting out of your comfort zone and allowing yourself some downtime are both huge themes of the year to come. While 2022 will see prosperity in money, career, and friends, there may be an imbalance with your love life. You’re working hard to meet your goals this year, and people are attracted to your allure and sense of responsibility.
Aquarius, Who You Really Are
Aquarians are forward-thinking, unique, and rebellious. These signs feel a purpose when advocating for others, specifically the good of society. As an air sign, you’re free-spirited and deeply rooted in matters of the mind, and you come up with unique and unorthodox solutions to everyday problems. Because you’re ruled by the eleventh house of society and friendships, the well-being of your community and friends are important values. If something is unjust, you will find a way to combat it or stand up for what you believe to be right.
You’re ruled by Uranus, so rebelling and going against the grain comes naturally to you. As a fixed sign, you may be stubborn to change your views, but you’re able to see your ideas through. You believe in the power of independence and uniqueness, and you fight for fairness and expressing one’s individuality. You push society forward and rally around others’ right to be different – you don’t march to the beat of your own drum, you created a whole different musical instrument.
Career and Money
As Venus enters its retrograde period from January 1 to 29 in Capricorn, you may feel especially empowered. You’re bringing in all the leadership energy into your work and taking your time, as Capricorn shares a similar ambitious heart as you. It’s important not to bury yourself in work, though, as you may experience burnout during this retrograde. Take care of your mental health, too.
With Saturn being your traditional ruler, you can get back to your roots and channel the discipline that this period has to offer, applying it in your professional life. You may find yourself promoted or in a new position or line of work entirely. Regardless, you’re working harder than ever in 2022, kicking the year off with a loud bang. Be open to the new career path and embrace the changes, even if they may seem uncomfortable at first.
Friends and Family
Get ready for a year of lively socialising, as 2022 brings a lot of attention to your social circle. You may feel extra admired and popular this year, so it’s important to get involved and open yourself to that rather than seek refuge in your own company, whether that’s with your friends or family. In August, Venus will enter your sister sign Leo, which will significantly fire up your popularity and the admiration of others.
When it comes to family, eclipse seasons in the spring and fall may bring uncomfortable positions, and there’s a chance you may feel alienated or disconnected. These periods are entering in Taurus and Scorpio, which are fixed signs, so there’s extra pressure to welcome different perspectives and a lot of push back to allow yourself to be vulnerable.
Love and Romance
With Saturn in your native sign throughout 2022, you may feel like you don’t have time for romance, and that your focus is elsewhere. In order to restore the spark, it’s important that you find a balance in all areas of work. This transit is asking you to take initiative in your love life. On the flip side, Jupiter will be hanging in your house of security and materialism in May and October, so your need for acceptance and comfort in a relationship will be at an all-time high.
You often feel detached and disconnected from your emotions, but this period is all about opening yourself up to new possibilities. If you’re single, you should make sacrifices in your routine so that you make time for dating. If you’re committed, this is a period of radical acceptance with your partner – feeling understood is important to you.
Aquarius, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
Life is bland when it’s all work and no play. Open yourself up to all the new changes, friends, and hard work that you’ll endure in the new year, but be sure to make time for all the fun in-between moments, too.
Libra, Your 2022 Horoscope Has You Shedding Layers
What’s wonder without a little bit of plight? While 2022 doesn’t spell out danger, it does interpret a lot of transformation as you coast through a new year of revival and inner growth. Libra, 2022 is offering you tremendous growth, but it’s not without tremendous sacrifice. You’re a positive and relationship-oriented person, and you’ll see both of these assets being tested in 2022. But with Jupiter in your corner, you’ll find even the toughest obstacles to be the greatest teachers.
Libra, Who You Really Are
Libras are romantic, fair, and sociable. These signs are heavily centred around finding peace and striking harmony in their lives. Because you’re represented by the scales of justice, you easily see the perspectives of others and take into consideration what is fair and just. You’re ruled by the seventh house of partnerships, which is why you value your social life and tend to revolve your worries around your public image. You’re compassionate and believe everyone deserves a second chance, which speaks to your need for balance.
Your ruling planet is Venus, so love, beauty, and romance are heavily important to you, as is nourishing your relationships. Since you’re an air sign, you’re free-flowing and all about the intellect. You’re also good at coming up with brilliant ideas, which is due to the fact that you’re a cardinal sign, meaning you’re the initiator. You crave harmony and peace, so you’re deeply motivated by the idea of reciprocation.
Career and Money
Your native planet, Venus, will go retrograde in Capricorn from January 1 to 29, which spells an auspicious time for your bank account. Money is on your mind this year, and you’ll find yourself especially inspired to take all the roads necessary to achieve the wealth you set your sights on. This transit is moving into your home sector, so you will feel the urgency to garner a comfortable lifestyle through your diligent hard work – so be mindful of your spending.
Because Jupiter in Pisces is resting in your house of routine, you’ll find that luck is on your side. Is your occupation inspiring and motivating you? Pay attention to your habits and reflect on the sustainability and longevity of your job. If you’re satisfied with your profession, it can feel like you’re doing the job you were set on this earth to do, so be responsible, productive, and grateful.
Friends and Family
Your social life and partnerships are important to you, and that will come as a huge learning moment as you pass through Venus retrograde. As this impacts your house of kin, you’ll notice the ways in which your friendships are serving you and wonder whether mutual effort and attention are being placed within them, so setting boundaries is important during this time.
Eclipse seasons in the spring and fall may bring uncomfortable revelations as they will move into your eighth house of death and transformation along with your house of security. Where do you feel most safe? What areas of your friendships or family are you feeling appreciated and heard? These shifts are here to shed the parts of you that are taking you for granted, while showing you where you are falling short, too.
Love and Romance
What is home to you, Libra? Venus in retrograde is setting the tone for your love life in the new year by helping you look at its stability. This is a period of thinking realistically as opposed to the romantic filter you see everything through. If you’re single, you might spend this time evaluating the fantasies you have about love and holding them up to what is actually possible – is your idea of the ideal partner keeping you from earnestly giving people a shot? If you’re committed, you may be anxious about learning what direction your relationship is going, so having those important talks with your partner is important.
Because Saturn is stationed in Aquarius throughout, 2022 will be glowing up your house of pleasure and play, so exploring your sensuality and needs in love will feel like a sexy homework assignment. This transit is all about deeply connecting with your sensuality. As you learn the ropes of what heightens your pleasure, it’s important to remain disciplined. Are you putting too much emphasis on love and romance? It’s time to stay balanced and focus on other areas of your life, too.
Libra, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
This year is about to light a lucky fire in you, Libra, assuming you’ll recognise that your fortune sprinkled equally in all areas of life, and it’s balanced out with a lot of shedding. It’s important to retire the rose-tinted glasses and put things into a practical perspective.
Capricorn, Your 2022 Horoscope Says Let Go…
For Capricorn, 2022 is a time of grace, introspection, and allowing yourself to become vulnerable. This is the year you let go a little bit of your control and speak your truth. Capricorn, you’re a diligent go-getter, which will be why you’ll reap the rewards of it in 2022. This is a lucky year for you in areas of love, friendships, and career, so long as you make the time to do so and can be transparent about your needs. Take advantage of your lucky stars, and don’t be afraid to dream big – you already have the drive and will to do the job. You just need the imagination to make it a reality.
Capricorn, Who You Really Are
Capricorns are pragmatic, responsible, and hard-working. These signs are incredibly dedicated to their work and value their labour, which is why you find them saving money rather than spending. Because you’re ruled by Saturn, you’re disciplined and oftentimes strict, even if it’s with the boundaries you set with yourselves. You persevere through the challenges of life and don’t let obstacles deter your dedication. As an earth sign, you see things in a realistic way and gravitate towards practicality rather than flashy.
Being a cardinal sign, you take initiative easily and love to come up with new ideas, making you good leaders and CEOs. You’re ruled by the tenth house of public image, career, and purpose, which makes you extremely focused and care deeply about the light others see you in. You can often become obsessed with your reputation. It’s important for you to feel like you serve a purpose to yourself and others and, even if you get lost in the pursuit, you always find your way to where you need to be.
Career and Money
As Venus starts its retrograde in your native sign from January 1 to 29, you’ll notice that all your hard work was worth it. This is a period of slowing down, and you have no problem with that. In fact, you feel right at home with this transit, so you will find yourself setting a healthy financial tone for the rest of the year as you turn to building your savings and, ultimately, your empire. With Jupiter moving into your third house of communication in May, you may find yourself leading rather than following in terms of your career, and even networking in massive ways, which will then strengthen your presence in your career. Therefore, it’s important to be extra mindful of how you portray yourself in a professional setting.
Friends and Family
2022 may find you coming to terms with some friendship drama, causing you to look elsewhere for platonic relationships, so the world won’t blame you if you made new friends, especially when Jupiter in Pisces revs up your social life between January and May, and later from October to December. These are hotspots for friendships and your cue to venture out and meet new people.
On the other hand, it’s important to protect your energy since Uranus will enter its retrograde in Taurus from January 18 to August 24, causing a little bit of friction as it brings uncomfortable change surrounding your relationships, including family. What’s more is the eclipse season in both spring and fall that will have you especially connected to your past and roots, so it’s a good idea to think about the future of your family. Do you want to start one? Are you repairing the relationship with your current family? These are important questions to keep in mind in the new year.
Love and Romance
During Venus retrograde in Capricorn, you’ll find yourself taking a backseat and evaluating what you want in terms of romance, so introspection is important. This will hit a fever pitch around July, when Venus strolls into your house of partnerships, so it’s a good idea to have your needs addressed by then in order to move forward with your newfound revelations. Are you ready for love or are you putting off romance for other priorities?
Jupiter will be in your corner in 2022, helping you articulate what you want and what you need for your relationship to thrive. It’s important to pay attention to the signs and your body, and hold the lessons from the past close to you in the year to come. If you’re single, it’s time to look to the future and be open with what you want it to look like. If you’re committed, you may feel called to go all in and take your relationship a level higher. Confusion and mixed signals have no place for you this year.
Capricorn, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
This year is about reveling in your magnetic energy, so take pride in all the hard work you’ve been putting in, but be sure to create leisure time to help you get back to your roots. Diversify your routine, make new friends, and speak what’s on your mind.
Taurus, Your 2022 Horoscope Is Looking Wild
Taureans are strong, loving, and grounded. These qualities will help them persevere through the manic changes that 2022 will bring. It’s time for the bull to put their game face on because challenges will be underway, but the obstacles of the new year are still no match for a headstrong Taurus because 2022 is the year you crack down on discipline. It’s a long year filled with shock and change – something you don’t typically warm up to very easily. You’re being tested to be more comfortable outside of your element and are learning hard truths when it comes to friendships and relationships. When you can focus on your needs and respect your own boundaries, you’ll easily get used to all the uncertainty that may come your way.
Taurus, Who You Really Are
Taureans are grounded, romantic, and headstrong. Comfort is highly important to the bull, so you’ve earned a reputation for being homebodies and recluses, but it’s only because you’re comfortable in your own solitary. It’s also because of a Taurus’ need for comfort and cosiness that they are seen as lavish and leaning towards a life of luxury, wealth, and material things, which is in line with the fact they’re ruled by the second house of possessions and materialism. You can be sensitive when someone disagrees with you, and you aren’t afraid to stand your ground.
Best not to get in the way of a Taurus as they will protect what’s theirs, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. That’s because they’re ruled by Venus, the planet of money, beauty, and romance. It’s important for you to feel validated in your personal beliefs, so you can be sensitive to change and uncertainty because you’re a fixed sign. And because of this, you yearn for consistency, so commitment is of utmost importance. As an earth sign, you’re strong on the details and are highly connected with nature and your surroundings.
Career and Money
The planet of finances will be in retrograde for most of January – from 1 to 29 – and it will be stationed in fellow earth sign, Capricorn. The structure of your financial plan should be taken seriously, so if you want to avoid any mishaps at work or disruptions to your streams of income, diligent saving and smart spending are crucial. This should be relatively easy for you, seeing as Capricorn energy will give you the comfort and structure you need to get through it. In fact, you will feel empowered as you work hard towards a goal, whether it be starting a new professional journey or putting in extra work, overtime, or a side hustle to maintain your lavish lifestyle.
On May 28, Venus will be moving into your sign, with you feeling more confident and comfortable about where you are financially, so it’s best that you take advantage of this auspicious time. Is there a business you want to start, but are worried about funding? Are you interested in pursuing a certain career, but don’t know where to start? This is the time to investigate these matters and get to the bottom of what you want in terms of profession. 2022 is all about getting your finances in check so you can fund your next big project that will be extra supercharged come Leo season, which will give you the confidence to launch your business or step into your new career goals.
Friends and Family
2022 is about to get really serious when it comes to your family, home, and origin. That’s because each eclipse season in the spring and fall is taking place in your native sign, so you may feel extra sensitive surrounding topics of structure in family. Beware of familial drama, which tends to happen during eclipse season. If you spend a lot of time at home, it could be time to take a step back and seek space for quiet reflection. You may yearn for a stronger connection with your family or simply learn to reconstruct what it means to be appreciated and comfortable at home. During this time, it’s important to ask yourself if you need to do a little extra housekeeping to feel truly safe and secure in your sanctuary.
When it comes to friendships, you may have a tough time navigating your social life. This could be due to a falling out or friendship drama, which is supercharged from January 18 to August 24, when Uranus takes you for a chaotic spin with Uranus retrograde. It could be time to sincerely reflect on whether you want to continue associating with your current friend group or if it’s time to move on completely.
Love and Romance
While Venus retrograde is teaching you valuable lessons when it comes to mapping out your needs and desires in your relationships, you won’t be feeling anything too heavy or harrowing since reflection and self-care are super important to you. With your willingness to look within and steer clear of any cosmic drama that may come your way, you’re equipped to really buckle down on what matters most to you so that your relationships can thrive.
You’ll find May and September to be particularly auspicious for your passionate love life as Venus will have you deeply connected and prioritised highly on your list. It’s important for you to care about self-care because reflection and shadow-work are thematic for youin 2022, so remember to strike a balance between making time for romance and nourishing your own self-love. If you’re single, it’s a good time to reflect on your needs in love as you will do for your friendships and family. If you’re committed, it’s likely you have a lot of unresolved strains in your relationship that will need a lot of investment to take care of.
Taurus, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
2022 is a great time to lean in on your personal growth. It’s time to be brave in the face of adversity, change, and disruptions. You may grapple with issues in your social life, but will be thriving as far as your public image and career goes. Take time reflecting on your deepest desires and challenge yourself to be inviting to new things to come.
Leo, Your 2022 Horoscope Is Predicting New Heights for Your Career
Change is in the air for Leo, and it’s about to get stern and serious. Avoid the rockiness and drama of change by opening your mind to all the positive growth on its way to you. This year is bringing massive change to Leos everywhere. As you reinvent yourself, you’ll find a renewed sense of peace and comfort in the changes, even if you may seem like parts of your life are dying. Like a phoenix, you’re rising from the ashes of your own fire, so call yourself to revel in the new you.
Leo, Who You Really Are
Leos are creative, generous, and strong-willed. These signs are the brave hearts of the zodiac, so they’ll protect and serve those they love with a strong force. As being ruled by the sun, you tend to have an inflated sense of self, which is reflective in your motives, but it’s because you’re deeply connected to life and want to live as fully and freely as possible.
Since you’re a fixed sign, you cement yourself in your beliefs and will protect your philosophy – this makes you good at following through and an excellent leader. You’re ruled by the fifth house of pleasure and creativity, making you artistic and lively, so pursuing a creative life is important to you. As a fire sign, you are driven and ambitious, and typically aren’t concerned about any restraints or limits that you may encounter. You’re in touch with your inner child and prioritise fun. You don’t take life seriously and believe others should live in step with this value if they want to feel fulfilled, too.
Career and Money
It’s time to get serious about your money and profession, Leo, especially during Venus retrograde between January 1 and 29 in Capricorn, which will have you get down to business – not something you necessarily are jumping for joy about, but it comes with its reasons. Are you feeling comfortable with your current position? And is it allowing you the creative freedom you need? This is a period of reclaiming the cost of your labour.
Shifting focus on your finances, you’re destined to make moves that will not only reward you in material things, but also enrich your spiritual growth. That’s due to Jupiter in Pisces for most of 2022, lighting up your house of rebirth. Whether it’s new streams of income, a raise, or a promotion, this year is bringing auspicious change for you.
Friends and Family
Your domestic relationships may feel friction during eclipse seasons in both the spring and fall periods, as they’ll be parked in Taurus and Scorpio. This energy is a push and pull of change and resistance and, being a fixed sign, you may experience discomfort as you’re being asked to make adjustments in your friend group. However, these changes are meant to help you understand the realities of friendship as it gives you a “that’s life” type of energy all year long.
With Jupiter in Pisces in 2022 lighting up your house of rebirth and transformation, you’re learning what it means to recreate and be reborn. This might mean transforming your domestic relationships or even welcoming a new family member. The coming year is asking you to brace yourself for a clean slate, loss, and revival.
Love and Romance
Venus retrograde is buckling down on your love life, and you may be comforted by the fact that Capricorn is all about stability and consistency, so you can really assess the longevity and quality of the romance in your life during this time. You’re a fixed sign, so underneath your fire, a persistent connection is important to you – and this is the time you realise that.
Because Jupiter in Pisces can seem a little suffocating, you may find it difficult to know what you want in terms of a romantic relationship. This is supercharged by Saturn in your sister sign Aquarius, which asks you to accept the shocking revelations that you might have regarding your love life. It’s time to ask yourself how you show up in love – are you looking for something serious with longevity, a forever type of relationship? If you’re single, this is what you’ll learn. If you’re committed, you may be revealed hidden truths about the motivations in your partnership, but this can also encourage a deeper connection depending on the context of the relationship.
Leo, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
2022 is bringing you a world of change and, in order to flourish in the ways you’re meant to grow, you’ll
need to accept the new and swift changes your way, and they won’t always be pleasant. Dig deep within
yourself to find your true intentions and allow yourself to transform into the person you’re meant to be
