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.
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.
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.
2023 looks to be a very significant year for you, with all three of the major sign changes - Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto - activating important areas of your chart, as well as some of this year’s Eclipses.
January, however, is something of a calm before the storm, with loving Venus heading into your opposite sign on January 2nd and a glorious New Moon in your love zone on January 21st bringing happiness and delight. The Leo Full Moon on February 5th is also a chance for you to shine at your brightest and best.
But on March 7th, Saturn leaves your opposite sign and moves into the self-development area of your natal birth chart, for the first time since 1996. You may find yourself plagued with self-doubt thanks to this influence, so you will need to be careful with your mental health this year.
On March 23rd, meanwhile, the transformation planet, Pluto, moves into your opposite sign for the first time in your lifetime. Over the next 19 years, you will undertake a profound shift in what you want from a relationship, and what you can offer in return. The early effects of this transit signal a deepening of your existing relationship, but power struggles and intimacy issues are likely.
The Solar Eclipse on April 20th may cause you a crisis of faith of some kind, but it’s the Lunar Eclipse on May 5th that rocks your family life, perhaps due to issues of a work-life balance. This is unfortunate because, on May 16th, Jupiter changes sign and moves to the very top of your chart - an exceptionally fortuitous and prosperous signal. Tremendous growth in your career is on the way over the following twelve months, but you will need to balance this carefully against your family responsibilities.
June, July, and August are set to be happy months in your love life, particularly during the Full Moon in your joy zone on June 3rd, which is swiftly followed by the arrival of Venus in Leo. The love planet turns retrograde in Leo on July 22nd, which is likely to be your first chance to process your Pluto-driven changing attitude to love. The Full Moon in your love zone on August 1st could be an emotional flash point, but the Leo New Moon on August 16th feels much lighter and more positive.
On October 14th, a Solar Eclipse hits the ideas zone of your natal birth chart, and your growing self-doubt may cause you to backtrack on something that is genuinely a good plan. The twin Lunar Eclipse on October 28th is in your career zone - be careful not to make dramatic changes that you can’t later undo because you do not have all the facts when this Eclipse takes shape.
Despite stressful periods this year, December looks like a very happy month, especially around the New Moon on December 12th. A deeply spiritual and reflective Full Moon on December 26th is healing and cathartic, enabling you to face 2024 with renewed confidence.
Pluto’s sign change on March 23rd is the single most significant factor affecting your love life this year - and indeed, for many years to come. Pluto has never made this transit before in your lifetime but will remain in this part of your chart for the next 19 years - a subtle but pervasive background influence that transforms your attitude to love.
Ahead of that change, January and February seem happy and settled, romantically. With Venus moving into your love zone on January 2nd and a New Moon here on January 21st, there’s plenty to enjoy. February follows suit with a New Moon in your passion zone.
However, on March 7th, ahead of Pluto’s sign change, Saturn moves into an area of your chart concerned with intimacy and power; as you adjust to Pluto’s influence this year, you must be careful not to use sex as a weapon in your relationship.
The Lunar Eclipse on May 5th impacts your family zone with a shock or surprise - but not necessarily a negative one; this Eclipse may bring news for a pregnancy, a new pet, or a new home. And when Mars moves into Leo on May 20th, your passion levels will increase still further, which is excellent news if your relationship is otherwise stable. A Full Moon in the joy zone of your chart on June 3rd is promising, and with Venus moving into Leo just two days later, you will hopefully enjoy several weeks of romance and togetherness.
Be careful when Venus turns retrograde in Leo on July 22nd, however. This could bring some emotional turmoil if there are issues in your relationship. The Full Moon shines from your love zone on August 1st, heightening emotional tension, although the Leo New Moon on August 16th gives you the chance for a fresh start if need be. When Venus turns direct in Leo on September 4th, pressure should ease.
As 2023 draws to a close, Mars changes signs on November 24th. If you’re single and looking for love, this is an incredible time for dating - don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith on someone who wouldn’t ordinarily be your ‘type.’ The New Moon on December 12th is also a very positive indication of new romance or new magic in an existing relationship. Finally, Venus changes signs and arrives in the joy zone of your chart on December 29th, paving the way for a very happy New Year indeed.
The first couple of months of 2023 are relatively quiet for your career, but that will quickly change as the year progresses. A Full Moon in your money zone occurs on March 7th, so look out for emotional spending at that time. It’s the same day that Saturn changes signs - although the focus with that transit is likely to be self-development, this area of your chart does also rule debt and inheritance, so there could be some financial disappointment or restrictions built in for a while.
The Solar Eclipse on April 20th may relate to your education or your qualifications; don’t try to bluff your way through at this point - honesty will be critical. The following day Mercury turns retrograde at the top of your chart, so it’s doubly important to be clear in your communications at work. The twin Lunar Eclipse on May 5th brings drama around your work-life balance, so be prepared for some difficult moments at work, home, or both.
The good news - wonderful news, in fact - is that Jupiter, the planet of luck, good fortune, abundance, and prosperity - moves into the career zone of your natal birth chart on May 16th, for the first time since 2012. This ushers in a full twelve months of exceptional potential for you, so dream big. The New Moon on the 19th also occurs at the top of your chart, making this a fantastic time to start a new job or launch a new business. A day later, Mars moves into Leo, further boosting your ambitions and confidence.
Mars will later change signs again and head into the money zone of your chart on July 10th, which is when you will really see your abundance levels start to rise. Be careful with money matters from August 23rd to September 15th, however, as Mercury retrograde in this zone of your chart will muddle matters considerably. The New Moon on September 14th will help to set financial issues straight again.
During the Solar Eclipse on October 14th, issues of communication create drama and conflict, and this could be true at work as well as in your personal life. The corresponding Lunar Eclipse on October 28th hints at a major or shocking work-related crisis of some kind - but one that will work in your favor. If you are suddenly thrust into the spotlight, treat it as an opportunity to show what you can do.
When Mars changes signs on November 24th, you’re being asked to stop playing it safe. Now is the time to make some daring changes at work or in business, because the Universe will reward those who take a leap of faith. As the year winds down, however, be sure to be respectful and kind to those you work with. Mercury’s retrograde from December 13th onward suggests trouble if you are too offhand or aggressive.
