2022 may bring challenges as you struggle to balance your career ambitions against your family life, Leo, but you start the year in fine style with a Super New Moon in your wellbeing zone on January 2nd – perfect for New Year resolutions!
Early unease in your relationship may start around January 14th, however, when Mercury turns retrograde. The New Moon in your love zone on February 1st is typically a positive sign, but the Full Moon in your own zodiac sign on February 16th hints at stormy emotions; you may have misjudged your partner’s level of agreement with your plans. The following day, Jupiter sextiles Uranus in a rare show of opportunity – this aspect impacts the passion and career zones of your natal birth chart, so this is a good time to win your lover’s heart and mind about your career ambitions.
On March 6th, Venus and Mars both move into your love zone, upping the passion but also increasing the angst. On April 12th, a rare and magical Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurs in your emotional debt zone – use this energy to seek healing, reconciliation, mutual understanding and forgiveness, ahead of the Solar Eclipse on April 30th, which may cause shocks and upheavals around your career.
Jupiter changes zodiac signs on May 10th, sweeping into your travel and adventure zone, promising much joy if you can abandon your fixed nature and be more spontaneous with your partner this year. However, repercussions around your work-life balance continue with the Lunar Eclipse in your family zone on May 16th, so you may need to focus on keeping the peace.
When Mars shifts into your career zone on July 5th, you will have opportunities galore. Focus on being the best you can be during July, ahead of the very promising Leo New Moon on July 28th.
Despite the good news on the career front, unease still continues at home; August 11th may be a particularly important day, with an emotional Full Moon in your love zone at the same time as Venus moves into Leo. The message here is to act with sincerity and love, from the heart, even when times are tough.
Look to the arrival of Mars in your social zone on August 20th for some fun – under this very sociable influence, you can enjoy parties, day trips and other activities.
On October 23rd, Venus brings calm and harmony to your family zone, but just two days later the Solar Eclipse in this area of your natal birth chart may rock your stability. The accompanying Lunar Eclipse in your career zone on November 8th points towards difficult choices, as does a very tense opposition the following day.
Hold your nerve and keep making decisions with the highest good in mind. This very difficult astrological period does have an end in sight, notably on November 23rd, when a New Moon in your joy zone makes it all worthwhile in the long term.
Love and Romance
If you are in an established relationship, 2022 will bring challenges to your work-life balance and the harmony of your home, but with your career set to enjoy excellent success, know that any such angst will end well eventually.
You start the year on the backfoot in love, with Mercury retrograde in your love zone from January 14th. However, the New Moon in this area of your natal birth chart on February 1st is exciting – if you are single, this is a very good time for dating.
Passion – for better and for worse – is set to increase in early March; the Pisces New Moon in your passion zone on March 2nd may be intoxicating and is swiftly followed by sign changes for both Venus and Mars into Pisces on March 6th and 15th, putting them front and center of your love life.
If you’re in a relatively new relationship, it may feel quite fated around this time, especially on March 12th when a rare and mystical Jupiter-Neptune conjunction highlights karmic links. Two days later, Mars piles on the drama with a sign change into your passion zone, so there should be some memorable moments here for sure.
On April 30th, a Solar Eclipse in your career zone is highly likely to have repercussions at home, particularly in the run-up to the Lunar Eclipse in your family zone on May 16th. Spend a few weeks reminding and actively showing your partner how much you care, offering reassurance and listening to their needs. The Super Full Moon in your dating zone on June 14th is a good time to rekindle your magic together.
August looks set to be an important month for your love life particularly around August 11th, when Venus moves into Leo at the same time as an emotional Full Moon shines from the romance sector of your natal birth chart. Very meaningful connections can be made at this time if you’re single; in an established relationship, it’s all about remembering why you fell in love, despite external stresses and strains.
October 25th is a Solar Eclipse in your family zone, so there could be some more shocks in store if your partner is not fully on board with your career trajectory. A few days later, Jupiter moves backward into your passion zone, so your relationship may noticeably cool while you and your lover try to work out your differences. Look to the Lunar Eclipse in your career zone on November 8th for a resolution one way or the other.
If your relationship remains under pressure, try not to panic. Mid-November brings much brighter news, with Venus changing signs to add magic and joy to your love life; a New Moon in this area of your natal birth chart adds to the relief on November 23rd.
This means that the festive period should be romantic and harmonious, especially if you can travel – Jupiter moves back into your travel zone on December 20th, making this an ideal time for a romantic getaway.
Money and Career
Work-life balance is not easy for anyone, even at the best of times, but for you in 2022 exciting career news does become a mixed blessing; on the one hand, you are really going places; on the other, your family life feels the strain.
Work begins well in the first half of this year with a Super New Moon in your work zone as early as January 2nd. Watch out for becoming a little too arrogant or bossy in late January, however, when Mars in this area of your natal birth chart gets too pushy. The early Mercury retrograde period this year ends with Mercury turning direct in your hard work zone on February 4th, so that will help.
On February 17th, a very positive sextile between Jupiter and Uranus is an ideal opportunity for linking passion and your career – if you can show your partner how invested in success you are, then you may start to win their support.
The first quarter of the year is an excellent time to practice manifestation and gratitude too, particularly around April 12th when a rare and beautiful Jupiter-Neptune conjunction shows you a huge sense of purpose around clearing emotional debts as well as financial ones. Two days later, Mars backs up this message too, arriving in this area of your chart and boosting your confidence further.
April 30th is an important date, being a Solar Eclipse in your carer zone. Between then and the accompanying Lunar Eclipse in your family zone on May 16th, you may have to make important decisions around your career progression and ambitions. As a fixed sign, you probably prefer to err on the side of caution, but a Super Full Moon in your risk zone on June 14th highlights what can be achieved if you’re willing to take a leap of faith.
Mars pushes into your career zone on July 5th; this, together with a Super Full Moon in your work zone on July 13th and an optimistic Leo New Moon on July 28th suggest that great progress can be made in this period. Keep promoting your skills and talents; this is not the time to be shy.
Watch out for some over-spending in late August and early September; a New Moon in your money zone on August 27th is inspiring, but with luxury-loving Venus clouding your judgment, you will struggle to stick to a budget. Retrograde Mercury moves backward in your money zone in late September, so be careful.
Two more Eclipses – Solar on October 25th and Lunar on November 8th may force you to choose between work and family, but know that this tension is only temporary. Choose with your heart, not your mind; whichever choice you make, there will be consequences, but you are more than equipped to handle them. The New Moon in your joy zone on November 23rd suggests that matters will quickly settle down.
