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.
