It’s a year of passionate commitment and intention. To set something big in motion and then be prepared to see it through. And to get yourself noticed in all the right ways – and by the right people, as you do it, Aquarius. Prepare to stand out in ‘22!
Go the distance. Who remembers that whispered line from the 1989 film ‘Field of Dreams’? If you’ve not seen it, then watch it as 2022 begins. It has another famous line ‘If you build it, they will come’. Both of these apply to you this year, Aquarius which is why I am starting this forecast off with this message. If you have an idea, a belief, a love, a passion or a vision – take it out there this year. And above all – go the distance and see it through.
Self-belief and belief in your ideas and abilities, is at the heart of the message of this film. And self-confidence, surety and above all, a willingness to take a chance, fuels your story this year. But as it does begin, feet up on the couch and rewind because retrogrades reign supreme! It’s a time of tuning in, revision and tapping into visionary, higher inspiration. Take time to decode your past and those past choices too. Especially around love.
Now, just maybe your once-upon-a-time is your happily ever after. But if your happily ever after is just so once-upon-a-time – use January to look at why your love life has turned into more of a cautionary tale than a fairy tale. Venus retrograde in your 12th can open up the true meaning of that story you’ve been busy writing. And you can now edit it for a better outcome once it heads direct again and arrives in your 1st in March. In fact, your birthday season and on into March delivers a free-wheelin’ retro free cycle when all the planets are direct once more.
The year also begins with Mercury retro in your sign from Jan 14 – another reason to plan and dream until February when Mercury will return when you are in birthday mode. Continue to process the past to gain a fresh perspective from it. Then – get ready for your relaunch and to go the distance between you and those dreams. ‘22 offers satisfaction and what you need to sustain you in the long term, Aquarius.
Ruler Uranus remains in your house of lifestyle, family, home and security. What you need to sustain you, your path and living arrangements, continue to undergo an electrifying revolution. Especially as you now have the North Node moving back into this house in your chart. And along with this, this year’s eclipse axis is across your 4th/10th houses of home and achievement.
The Moon rules your 4th house. And not just home, family and physical security but your emotional security too. Eclipses in your 4th can therefore be extremely powerful. While eclipses in your 10th – a house where the Moon is less emotional and more goal-oriented, may challenge you to keep your cool and stay professional. As with all eclipses – something’s being covered up and you need that Moon energy to access your insight, intuition and emotional truth. Dates to watch and wait and steer clear of trying to second guess what others may be feeling are:
Apr 30 -when a new ‘Black’ Moon in your 4th brings a Partial Solar Eclipse. This occurs the day Venus and Jupiter meet in your 2nd. Remember – eclipses can come with hidden benefits and this one could just conceal a better deal around income or property!
May 16 – the full Moon in your 10th and a total lunar eclipse asks you to merge that dedication to going the distance with awareness of how others see you. Time to ensure you come across as someone who means what they say and says what they mean. Above all, during this eclipse and the next in this house at the time of the new Moon on Oct 25 – protect your public image at all costs. Yes, the lights have been turned out. But that doesn’t mean to say you are invisible!
Nov 8 delivers a total lunar eclipse in your 4th – conjunct your ruler. Please pay close attention to anything around the home, family, property dealings, airbnb-ing if you are a host, boundaries, fences and security. Property dealings may change or someone may not be giving you the big picture. Certainly this is an eclipse where you need to pay close attention to that gut.
Being open to changing direction or where or how you live may form a big part of creating your happily-ever-after this year. Your ancient ruler Saturn remains in your sign all year, asking you to continue to know what you want – and to get serious about it. Taking yourself seriously and projecting self-authority is essential to career progress this year – especially during October when the planets in your 9th will trine Saturn and Vesta in your 1st asks just who is in charge (the answer when it comes to where you are going should be you!).
Rewards for going the distance could be on offer thanks to Jupiter and Neptune in your money zone. April 12 brings a once-in-several-lifetimes meeting between these two in here. Both rule Pisces and it has been 165 years since both planets were in residence at the same time. For all signs, this is probably the most important of the year. As well as your money, this takes place in your house of values, possessions, talents, skills and self-worth. And also relationships you can literally ‘bank’ on. Those rare and special people you know will always have your back no matter what.
One outcome could be financial improvements but you could just as easily benefit from the help or generosity of someone you know. Or see the arrival of a new, potentially significant connection whose presence in your life is like a big payday! Love is after all – our greatest asset. Best times for love for you – February and your birthday season when Venus and Mars meet in your sign, July/August when the Sun and other planets are in your 7th and October when they move through your 9th.
Yes, you are worth it!
Jupiter pays two houses in your chart a visit this year. Dividing its time between them. Your 2nd of money, income and possessions and your 3rd of ideas, business, getting around, writing, learning and the internet. Look at how one house is connected to the other as Jupiter goes back and forth and you’ll discover ways to boost your income and break out into new and better areas of discovery and opportunity. Above all – be a self-starter. And don’t be a talker. If you build it, they will come means taking action on those ideas – not simply talking about what you are going to do with them.
Jupiter leaves your 2nd and lands in your 3rd on May 10. This also puts travel back on the menu for many of you. It remains in here until Oct 28 when it re-enters your 2nd for less than two months. And return to your 3rd on December 20.
Your other noteworthy transit this year is passionate, go-getting Mars which will spend an unusually long time in your 5th house of romance, lovers, creativity, fun, pleasure and children. It’s time to go off in hot pursuit of what you want. To immerse yourself in what makes your heart beat faster, to party and play and above all, stand out and get yourself noticed. Really, Mars in here simply don’t do shy and retiring. In love, you need to really, really, really, really, really, really feel it in a very Carly Rae Jepsen way. Or else it’s not happening. Searing, scorching love, fire, creating something, making love feature.
Enjoy right up until Oct 30 when Mars retrogrades in here – a retro which will take you into ‘23. But by now – you should have built or gone after that vision of yours, Aquarius. And been noticed for your passionate intent as well as your ability to go the distance to those dreams – on into 2023.
