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.
