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.
