ARIES (March 21–April 20)
2022 is the year for the warrior to embody truth and fight for a cause that matters. Dive into who you really are and don’t be afraid to be the leader who makes a change in your friends and family. Love could be just over that hill, so muster up the energy to get a running start; now is not the time to be meek. Ideas come flooding in, so keep a pencil and pad handy for all of your creative thoughts.
TAURUS (April 20–May 21)
Dear bull, the start of the New Year will push you out of your comfort zone. It’s a vast prairie out there, and you’ve been sitting under a tree waiting for inspiration. Well, here it comes. You’re ready for a flash of red to get it all started. Time to love what you do and do what you love. The same old boring routine isn’t going to work anymore. Leave the bullpen that has been your prison!
GEMINI (May 21–June 21)
It’s a good thing you’re such a curious creature; much will be going on behind the scenes, and you will have lots to keep you busy. You must have some downtime between all of the nosiness, so you don’t burn out too fast. Your need for daydreaming will be hard to control, but it also may give you a billion-dollar idea during the first couple of months in 2022!
CANCER (June 21–July 23)
As you begin the New Year, find your place in society. Instead of hiding out again, you may find yourself in some sort of spotlight. Now could be the time to shake off the self-imposed restrictions; you need expansion, and you finally realize that you have to expose yourself to be free and release the fabulous creature inside!
LEO (July 23–August 23)
The year begins with a bang for the big cats! Your boldness is filled with possibilities. This year could be full of career growth or a complete change of what you do for a living! You must learn, however, to respect both others’ limits and your own, as well. This may be foreign to you. Pay attention to the inside as much as to the outside of yourself; you tend to be mainly concerned with looks more than health, and I mean that politely!
VIRGO (August 23–September 23)
Your preoccupation with health has served you well. But, as you go into 2022, you will need to shine the light on healing your creativity and revolutionizing the way you think about life. You’ve been way too serious! Use 2022 to let your hair down and laugh regardless of who is watching. Learn you can be soft and still be direct. Your strong mental focus will always be your ace card; stop taking the work home at night. You need your rest!
LIBRA (September 23–October 23)
2022 is your year of complete balance. Well, at least try and see if it is! You need to celebrate yourself and all of your accomplishments; a world without Libras would be a very gray place! This year is a time to love yourself, and that is an order! You have done enough work on yourself. Now live a little!
SCORPIO (October 23–November 23)
Learning intimacy has been a challenge, but now is the time to learn to overcome the habit of too much secrecy! Lighten up, Scorpio; Uranus in Taurus is trying to help you come up from the ocean floor and take a breather! The first couple of months in 2022 may have you out of your comfort zone, but that is where you find the freedom you are seeking. I believe this year will liberate you in ways only you can imagine!
SAGITTARIUS (November 23–December 22)
2022 will be the year of stable routines and planned strategies, which alone is quite radical for your free spirit! To get that brass ring, you must be disciplined in certain areas, but that doesn’t mean you’re boring. Learn the balance of when to have recess and then get back to work. You’ll need all your energy to accomplish what you started. Be kind to yourself in the first three months of the year.
CAPRICORN (December 22–January 20)
You’ve been working hard and you have a payoff coming by early spring. You are almost at the finish line, so don’t quit now: It’s just a couple more months of serious business until your hard-earned award. Your need to make an impression on life is strong. It’s your nature to be constantly giving, making it hard to receive. That is an act of control you should finally let go of this year.
AQUARIUS (January 20–February 19)
Your lessons from last year revolved around material things. This New Year brings you the challenge of spiritual liberation in ways you’ve only imagined, unallowed before. You will be helping the community by just being you and sharing your intuitive futuristic ideas that bring positive change! You find comfort in your own skin after much inner work, so now is time to come forward and be seen.
PISCES (February 19–March 21)
Self-imposed isolation is so last year, and being the martyr is no longer chic! Dear fish, the next few months are crucial to your debut back into society. You must keep all of those resolutions this time, or no one will take you seriously! Your intentions are always good, but the follow-through leaves them hanging and unsure whether you are trusted. You must hold yourself accountable, keep your word, and show once and for all you’re the stuff of legends!
