Astrology Can Unleash Your Potential – Here’s How
Astrology has been around for two and a half millennia, and traces its roots to the Babylonian Age. This ancient craft was devised by the sages and the seers of those times to consult and strategise on behalf of rulers. Today, the worldwide collective consciousness has shifted from just spirituality to radical technology, social justice, and acceptance of the self through the rise of astrology.
On one memorable trip to New York for a women’s leadership training program, I had the strangest encounter of my life. I met with a psychic who told me something I’d never forget. At that point, I was at my lowest, both emotionally and physically, even though my life seemed perfect from the outside. I was exactly where I’d worked hard to be – at the peak of my journalistic career – and yet I wasn’t happy. When I visited the psychic, she said, “Don’t listen to the voices.” I was startled. “Voices, what voices?” I asked. She replied that I shouldn’t listen to the voices that tell me to kill myself. I had no idea that, at that moment, I’d begun the quest of my life by listening to the guidance of stars instead of those voices.
Fast forward to six years later, I am now a certified Applied Astrologer through the Debra Silverman School. I discovered myself, my potential, possibilities, and ultimately my soul’s journey. All the clients that I work with come to me with burning questions about their lives. They find themselves confused and torn amidst the internet’s takeover of astrology. They may have their entire astrological chart on an app, but they seek deeper knowledge about the cosmic imprint of their soul.
Astrology, Then and Now
The earliest known astrological illustrations were found 20,000 years ago. Some of the most striking ones include over 600 carvings found in France, which have the same symbols for the 12 zodiac constellations that astrologers still use today. Many cultures of the time believed that planets were forces of nature or representatives of the divine that shaped the life of every individual on earth. Whatever pattern constellated in the heavens, the study of it was always conjugated and never abstract. It was considered a necessity with life-and-death implications that required understanding the divine and mystical.
Before the advent of science, everything was connected to nature and its signs, climate, calamities, disasters, new comets, and eclipses. In the age of information, all major publications throughout the globe have a dedicated astrologer penning horoscope columns daily. The first one was published in 1930 by Sunday Express. While it was Ptolemy, an astronomer and mathematician who introduced ‘natal’ astrology, today, its sister science astronomy has split away from it, pushing many cynics to call astrology a pseudoscience. Regardless of the opposition and disbelief in the science of astronomy, questions about the millennial’s place in the universe are often comforted by astrological memes. And somehow, in this process, we feel connected to the community and end up feeling like an unique individual – a one in a billion.
Astrology, a Healing Art
Astrology as a healing art has come a long way from the Sun Sign Astrology found in newspapers and websites to a certified astrologer today, who studies a snapshot of the sky at the moment of your first breath – just like how they used to in the old times. The exact position and placements in the sky will let them have a look into the map of your soul. Just like how all psychotherapists do not work with you the same way, each astrologer looks at your chart differently.
The position of all the planets will reveal the nature of your life, almost like a neutral mirror. The map can guide you towards your true purpose. The natal chart works like an anchor for me as an astrologist, while I solidify a client’s unique qualities, challenges, possibilities to the future, as well as opportunities so that I can assist and guide them to truly live the life they were born to live.
Each planet is like a member of our counsel – almost like a spirit guide – that’s watching over us. Our lives are full of mystery and magic, and astrology as a healing art works best with time and layering of information. So, yes, grasping all there is to your life in a single session might be a far-fetched idea. Astrology is a symbolic language that appeals to both our conscious and subconscious mind.
Astrology Seeds to Sow
This healing art can speak to you when you need it most. It can actualise your destiny, and you can live out the potential of your entire being. It will illuminate the archetypes that you are living and the lessons that you are being taught. It can let you channel all energies to blend and translate into your life. Each sign within us and the planet where it plays out is the seed that we actualise and grow as we take care of it.
A story in The New York Times talked about how psychotherapists have now started learning astrology to understand their clients. Many shared that numerous clients were now using astrology as a reference point in their lives. Another article reported that venture capitalists were now investing in zodiac-focused start-ups as, according to them, astrology is having a cultural moment. I believe these factors indicate that with its rise as a constructive navigating tool for people from all walks of life, the whole debate about astrology being a pseudoscience is slowly dying out.
Transformation through Astrology
I use Applied Astrology as a healing art almost as much as an energy healing work. I practise it as a strong starting point for each client’s work with me. The natal chart acts as a roadmap into the transformation to make each puzzle of their lives finally make sense. This healing process is not for the faint-hearted and those interested in future predictions. Applied astrology requires us to comprehend where we are in our lives and to put in work for ourselves.
I create a sacred space for those who are committed, introspective, contemplative, and curious about moving into their lives with ultimate power. The tools of astrology – the planets, the positions and placements, the mystery of the skies – must be held in utmost respect for their power. There should be an understanding and awareness that it takes time to understand what these influencing factors are trying to communicate to us and what they are capable of in our lives.
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 you in 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.

Virgo, Who You Really Are
Virgos are meticulous, organised, and analytic. These are the doers and the planners of the zodiac. Because you’re ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and mind, connecting with others on a deep level is important for you. You enjoy having structure and a solid plan, and live comfortably when you have a persistent routine – this is due to the fact that you’re ruled by the sixth house of routine and wellness. For that, you need to have stable rituals to ensure you have a strong foundation and tend to be hard on yourself if something doesn’t work out the way you want.
As a mutable sign, you’re easily adaptable and can fit any environment, but you prefer to be the lead when it comes to organising and getting things together. You believe everything has a place and everything should be in its place. Because you’re an earth sign, you are realistic and heavily involved in the material world, meaning you are rooted in the earth and what it has to offer.
Career and Money

It’s okay to be vulnerable and it’s okay to be the topic of conversation, especially if you’re being uplifted and admired.
Scorpio, Who You Really Are
Scorpios are mysterious, sensual, and deep. These signs crave deep, emotional, and supernatural connections with those around them and spend their time searching for that relationship. You’re passionate and deeply emotional, which is because you’re a water sign, meaning you can be sensitive as well. Being ruled by the eighth house of sex and rebirth, self-improvement and shadow work are important to your growth. You’re overprotective of your heart and won’t hesitate to react defensively if you or someone you love were being threatened.
With your ruling planet being Pluto, you’re called to mystery, privacy, and the taboo parts of life. You enjoy thinking about the afterlife and will study esoteric and obscure religions and philosophy out of curiosity.
