The first few weeks of 2022 are introspective, particularly with Mercury retrograde in your public zone from January 14th. However, Mars shifts into your adventure and learning zone on January 24th and is joined by your forward-moving ruler Venus on the 29th, making you feel somewhat restless and keen to seek out new experiences.
Some of this will be felt in your career, particularly during the New Moon in Aquarius on February 1st and the Full Moon in Leo of February 16th. You should consider your work-life balance in that period.
The Jupiter-Uranus sextile of February 17th brings you great insight via teamwork, your community or your humanitarian instincts. There are opportunities for work here, but also for personal growth. Think about moving professionally into a worthwhile sphere of work.
This thread is continued when Mars and Venus both shift into your career zone on March 6th, and it’s further underlined when the rare Jupiter-Neptune conjunction illuminates your community zone on April 12th.
Late spring and summer in the Northern Hemisphere are more focused on your personal life, with the Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30th bringing some shockwaves, for sure. In your relationships, family life or interpersonal sphere, it may be time to take stock. Jupiter arrives in your privacy zone on May 10th, just before a Lunar Eclipse in your love zone on the 16th, so you would be well-advised to turn down the temperature and to deal with these matters privately and without drama.
You’ll feel more confident when Venus moves into Taurus on May 28th, and your self-esteem gets a further boost on July 5th when Mars moves into Taurus too. These are good periods for addressing any underlying angst in your personal life, before the second set of Eclipses create additional turmoil in the Northern Hemisphere’s fall months.
Venus moves into your love zone on October 23rd, which will help to smooth over ruffled feathers in a partnership – but the Solar Eclipse in your love zone a couple of days later does feel rather fated. Conflict between your personal life and your career ambitions may be to blame here. Try to get things back on an even keel before the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8th.
Early winter in the Northern Hemisphere is a quieter and more satisfying period for you this year, with little to trouble your routines and normality during the run-up to the festive season. On December 20th, Jupiter moves back into your privacy zone following its earlier retrograde period, but this time the emphasis is on spiritual growth. Embrace the true meaning of the holiday period and look for ways in which you can grow your spiritual understanding as the year draws to a close.
Love and Romance
Love and relationships are likely to be a major issue for you this year, Taurus, given the series of Eclipses around your own zodiac sign and your opposite sign. It’s going to be important to keep a cool head and to stay rooted in your values.
Early signs of tension in your love life may be evident around the Full Moon in your family zone on February 16th, if you’re already settled with a family, or during the Full Moon in your dating and risk zone on March 18th if you’re single or in an early stage of your relationship.
If you are actively looking for love, the beautiful Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on April 12th is interesting – this occurs in your friendship zone, but hints at romance and karmic connections with someone you already know well. A few days later, passionate Mars arrives in this area of your natal birth chart too, so matters may progress quickly.
However, the first major sign of trouble occurs around April 30th with the Solar Eclipse in your own sign. This may find you doubting yourself, your lover or your future together, especially if anything illicit is revealed. Venus moves into your secrecy zone days later on May 2nd, hinting either that something underhand is being revealed or that you will need time, space and privacy to cope with what has happened. Be kind to yourself, especially during the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone on May 16th, which is when matters may really come to a head.
Remember that Eclipses bring drama and shocks, but these can be keys to transformation for the better, if we allow them to be. Whatever happens, your confidence will start to rise when Mars arrives in Taurus on July 5th, and the lovely New Moon in your family zone on July 28th is a reassuring sign too; the latter is backed up by the arrival of Venus in your family zone on August 11th.
If you are single in August, the 27th is a very good time for dating or finding new love, as the New Moon shines from your dating zone. With Venus moving into this zone in early September too, the signs are good for a well-starred meeting.
Your love life appears to stabilize in late October when Venus moves into your love zone – but just two days later, a Solar Eclipse in that same zone may remind you that there is still unfinished business. Look to the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8th for emotional closure.
The very next day, a tense T-square involving your own sign, your opposite sign and your career zone suggests that love will need careful handling when it comes under pressure from your working life. However, overall, the signs for the rest of 2022 are calm and loving, at least from a relationship standpoint.
Money and Career
You may be looking for a fresh start in how you earn your living early in the year, especially around the time of the New Moon in Aquarius on February 1st, which falls in your career zone. It could take you a while to figure out where you want to go, but the powerful Jupiter-Uranus sextile on February 17th points you firmly towards community-focused work of some kind; you’ll definitely want to be making a difference.
Venus and Mars both move into your career zone on March 6th, giving you the go-ahead to start making changes if you wish, driven both by your ambitions and by your emotional intelligence. The Full Moon in your creativity and risk zone on March 18th highlights how great gains can be made if you’re brave enough to try.
The Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30th and its partner Lunar Eclipse in your relationship zone on May 16th could bring drama if you are in a business partnership of any kind. There are trust issues around this Eclipse series, so don’t allow yourself to be fooled. Meanwhile, the arrival of Jupiter in your secrecy zone could point towards career opportunities in mental health work, institutions or psychic/divination work of some kind.
You can expect good financial vibes when the New Moon on May 30th shines from your money zone, but with Saturn turning retrograde in your career zone on June 4th, itchy feet regarding your career direction are not going away any time soon. Watch out also for extravagant spending when Venus moves into your money zone on June 22nd.
The Full Moon in your career zone on August 11th is likely to be a crunch point in any career decisions you need to make. Be bold and don’t allow money to be the over-riding factor in your choice. As evidenced by the arrival of Mars in your money zone on August 20th, you have what it takes to succeed financially even if you are changing direction.
Being a cautious zodiac sign by nature, however, you may second guess yourself for many more weeks yet. The tense opposition early in October shows you are still wrestling with issues of risk, money and purpose in life, although the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus on November 8th is likely to force your hand one way or the other.
Opt for a scaled-down festive season while you adjust to any new career options or financial constraints. The Full Moon in your money zone on December 7th warns against extravagant spending, so keep a tight budget if you can.
