Jupiter planet of luck, opportunity and expansion lands in your 7th of lasting love and partnerships, Libra. Time for love? Certainly one of the best for you to become part of a double act or enhance your present one you’ve experience in 12 years! Out with the longing – on with the loving in ‘22!
Love and partnership matters are the hot topic for you in ‘22, In all love’s many splendored forms and across all areas of your life. But as the year begins, you are being asked to focus on love close to home – of family, those you live with, meeting your needs and theirs and love for that place you inhabit rather than the romantic kind. This is all down to ruler Venus starting the year retrograde in your 4th house.
Mercury will also be retrograde at this time. Starting its moonwalk in your 5th of romance and ending up in your 4th before heading direct once again. All this tells you that seeking that new partner is a no-no for now. But also this is about living and loving your life and how you live no matter what your relationship status currently is. If you focus on this during this retrograde period, you will quickly discover that this opens the doors to getting all the other kinds of loves.
Yes, 2022 may be off to a slow start due to this. But take it that the year will not stay this way. You will experience a glow-getting, goal setting retro free period for most of February and all of March promising non-stop, full speed ahead progress towards those desires.
Uranus remains in your 8th for ‘22 and you need to remain true to those values and ensure your value system is aligned to what truly matters to you. This is about soul integrity and what you will or won’t sell it for. Priceless as a certain credit card campaign tells us. Your values will provide you with a guiding light this year during any times of uncertainty and confusion.
Especially as this year’s eclipse axis takes place between Taurus and Scorpio – your 2nd and 8th houses. And the North Node swings back into Taurus at the start of the year. Yes, this will be about your money, cash, assets and income. You should of course, avoid major financial decisions at the times of the eclipses which I will give you in a moment. But it will be about far more than that at the end of the day. Financial karma and beliefs around money will come full circle. But this will also be about what money can’t buy you too. As well as what it can. Remember – money cannot buy us love or happiness but it buys us choices. And also, how much is ‘enough’? Expect to find yourself in situations where you will look at this either through your own experiences or those of other people!
Your eclipse dates are April 30 – a partial solar eclipse in your 8th at the time of the ‘Black’ new Moon. This is nothing sinister but the term for the second new Moon in a month. An extremely rare event which can only occur once every 2.5 years. For one to cause an eclipse is rarer still. If you remember your eclipse rules then you know you are in the dark at the time of an eclipse. Eclipses hide and conceal. A partial eclipse – well, you have a glimpse of the truth. Just not the whole picture.
So, no big decisions on this day around either money or partnerships. And keep an open mind around what might be hidden in that eclipse. Eclipses are neither good nor bad. They simply ARE. It just so happens on the day this one occurs ruler Venus makes a superb alignment with Jupiter in your 6th. Benefits being one hidden thing which could emerge.
This occurs just after a magical and once-in-165 alignment occurs between Jupiter and Neptune in your 6th on April 12. Love what chooses you and drop the struggle and the chase. Look to what emerges and comes to you effortlessly. Especially if it has a positive impact on your work, daily life and overall wellbeing.
Your other eclipse dates are May 16 – total lunar eclipse in your 2nd at the time of a Mercury retro. I should not have to tell you to keep emotions out of any financial dealings and guard your cash at this time. You have another eclipse in here on Oct 25 – a partial solar one. Watch and wait. And the final one in your 8th on Nov 8th which falls conjunct Uranus so has an unpredictable quality to it. However, if something doesn’t go to plan this simply means it was not in your long term best interest. Bear this in mind.
Back to love
So, let’s get back to love. Jupiter spends approximately half the year in your 6th of day job and everyday business and responsibilities. And the rest in your 7th of lasting love and partnerships. Get ready to open your heart to someone or something bigger! It arrives in here on May 10, re-enters your 6th for final housekeeping tasks on Oct 28 and returns to your 7th on Dec 20 to see in the New Year for you.
This is one of the best cycles you have experienced in 12 years for bringing you that special someone. Or even redelivering that partnership opportunity you missed out on the first time around. You have more than one period where attraction and hot, hot love possibilities are all around you. The first one occurs in March after Venus has turned direct and meets Mars in your 5th and Eros and the Sun enter Aries and your 7th. The first two weeks of April are filled with the promises of falling in love with love again. Whether this is with your current bae or someone new.
July brings the chance of important new connections where communication and common themes align you to someone very much on the same page as you thanks to Venus drawing on all the potential of the Galactic Centre. Your birthday cycle this year coincides with Mercury retro in your sign but this time you have the planets opposing Jupiter in your 7th. Second chances rule at this point.
You’ll be filled with the desire to expand your horizons and travel especially the long distance kind may be back on the menu for many in ‘22. Your confidence and willingness to try something new will increase thanks to an extended stay by Mars in your 9th. However, Mars will make an extended retrograde in this house. Don’t take unnecessary risks, become over-confident or an Adrenalin junkie in your search for that rush. And please, if you are going anywhere, stay away from ‘dodgy’ areas or places you don’t know during this retro cycle. Mars retrogrades on Oct 30 and remains backwards on into ‘23 so this applies across this entire period.
You will end the year with Jupiter back in your 7th, Chiron direct in here and powerful Ceres in your 1st offering you a new deal on love or partnerships in some form. Your main goal for ‘22 however should be first and foremost to fall in love with your own life first. Then in loving what you do. Not someday. Someday is a time which never happens. But today and everyday. Then – falling in love with a person, what you can achieve or experience with someone be they a love partner or another kind. If ‘21 had you asking ‘Where’s the love?’ – ‘22 shows you exactly where it can be found, Libra.
