There’s a lot of personal growth on the way for you during 2022, Virgo, as you are challenged to seek new learning or to outgrow your old worldview. There’s also a focus on emotional abundance and greater passion.
If you’re single, astrology suggests that January is a very interesting time for dating someone new. The Super New Moon in your dating zone on January 2nd is promising, although once Mars changes sign on January 24th you’ll need to be careful not to be too pushy – most unlike you!
In an existing relationship, the Jupiter-Uranus sextile on February 17th is uplifting and meaningful; it’s time to grow together, through travel, new experiences and new ideas. The New Moon in your love zone on March 2nd is a good time to start; by the time the Full Moon shines from Virgo on March 18th, you will already have made memories.
The rare and magical Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurs in your love zone on April 12th, encouraging you to explore your karmic links and soul attractions; a few days later, however, Mars’ arrival in this area of your natal birth chart could hint at disagreements and fights.
April 30th sees a potent Solar Eclipse in your adventure zone; you may suddenly realize that you are stuck in a rut, or you may have to defend your opinions against a backlash. With Jupiter changing signs on May 10th, your emotions will become much more open and flowing – this is a great period for therapy and self-help, Virgo, as well as for greater intimacy with your partner. The Lunar Eclipse on May 16th urges you to get beyond what you think you know; you are growing intellectually as well as spiritually.
Some of these changes and challenges in astrology are nerve-wracking, Virgo, so May and June could feel rather edgy. However, a Super Full Moon in your risk zone floods you with bravery on July 13th, enabling you to grow in confidence over the following six weeks until the Virgo New Moon on August 27th, which sees a whole new you ready to emerge.
In early September a complex T-square challenges your identity in terms of who you are, who you choose to be with and which career you choose to follow. Mercury is retrograde in your sign in late September, so muddled thinking confuses the issues. By the time of the next Solar Eclipse on October 25th, you may well have realized that you need to rethink your priorities and beliefs. A few days later, Jupiter retrograde re-enters your love zone, while Mars starts backward motion in your career zone – ahead of the Lunar Eclipse on November 8th you are being asked to focus purely on your values, principles and outdated worldview.
Again, this could be uncomfortable, but you sense that you must do the necessary inner work to open up further emotional abundance. Persevere and challenge your own thinking.
Once Jupiter turns direct in your love zone on November 23rd, you will feel calmer, better supported and more loved.
There is a deeply spiritual vibe surrounding your love life this year, courtesy largely of philosophical Jupiter.
If you are single, make the most of January – a Super New Moon in your dating zone on January 2nd is a hugely exciting influence, for example. Do be aware, however, that with Mercury retrograde in this area of your natal birth chart in late January, you may not be giving others the impression you think you’re giving.
Jupiter’s first impact on your romantic life comes on February 17th in an electrifying sextile to Uranus, the planet of shocks and surprises. This aspect links the areas representing love and travel in your natal birth chart, so who knows what might happen if you’re abroad or meeting people of other countries and cultures!
Certainly, the New Moon in your love zone on March 2nd is a happy occasion, and Venus’ sign change on April 5th adds to the romantic vibe and harmonious astrological weather.
On April 12th, in a rare and supremely spiritual conjunction, Jupiter and Neptune combine to sprinkle karmic fairy dust over your closest relationship. Look into karmic and soul-level links with your partner – or perhaps with someone else you feel irresistibly drawn to at this time.
This year’s Eclipses don’t have much of a direct impact on your love life, but the Solar Eclipse on April 30th hints at more travel-related surprises or developments – definitely bear this in mind if you are in a long-distance relationship. A few days later on May 3rd, Jupiter sextiles Pluto in a potentially intoxicating influence on the sex and romance areas of your natal birth chart; just be aware that if you are going to play with fire, Virgo, you may get burned.
On May 10th, Jupiter advances into your passion and intimacy zone, clearing the way for wonderful sensual interactions and many happy memories. If you’re in a long-term relationship, you’ll also enjoy the Super Full Moon in your family zone on June 14th, and the one after that too, on July 13th, which falls in your flirting and fun zone.
August is typically a significant month in your love life in terms of astrology; this year, the Virgo New Moon on August 27th is followed a few days later by Venus moving into your sign, making this a very good time for dating, weddings or healing a relationship that may have been on the rocks.
Look out for a tense T-square in early October that pits your love life against your career, trapping you firmly in a battle it’s very hard to win. The Solar Eclipse on October 25th shows you the importance of communication in your love life; on the 28th, retrograde Jupiter moves backward to revisit your romance zone, quietening things down and giving you a chance to reflect.
Remember the spiritual connection you discovered with your partner in April? Hold onto that through a slightly bumpy November in astrology and another Lunar Eclipse. By November 23rd, when joyful Jupiter turns direct, you will be able to breathe a sigh of relief and move forward in love once more.
Astrology suggests that your career path is relatively stable this year, Virgo, although the Eclipse cycle does emphasize how you are outgrowing some areas of knowledge – so potentially you may also be outgrowing your job.
To begin with, however, your concerns are more mundane. Colleagues may be difficult to handle in mid-January when Mercury turns retrograde; the arrival of Mars in the most reckless area of your natal birth chart on January 24th doesn’t help, as you are likely to speak first and worry about the consequences later. Nevertheless, a New Moon in the colleagues area of your chart on February 1st smooths things over.
It’s the rare and important Jupiter-Neptune conjunction on April 12th that may create waves in your career. This occurs in the area of your chart that is primarily concerned with love, but it also represents business interests and partnerships, so if you are self-employed or freelance, this is an opportunity to really connect with new clients on an almost psychic or karmic level. Mars moves into this chart sector two days later, so your business ambitions are strong and backed by real talent at this time.
April 30th is a Solar Eclipse in your education zone; something may happen around this time that highlights a need for further training or education in your profession, whether you really fancy that or not. With Jupiter moving into the emotional abundance area of your natal birth chart on May 10th, at the same time as Mercury turns retrograde in your career zone, you may want to re-think your target market or work on how you connect with others via social media.
May 16th brings a Lunar Eclipse again connected to outdated ideas or learning. Given that the New Moon on May 30th emerges from your career zone, Virgo, astrology suggests this is an excellent period for a fresh start.
Late spring and early summer in the Northern Hemisphere are astrologically quiet for your career and finances; it’s not really until August 20th, as Mars changes signs to focus on your ambitions, that you will start to feel a true sense of direction and drive. The emotional Virgo New Moon on August 27th could mark a turning point in how you see yourself, which in turn could drive up your income ahead of the New Moon in your money zone on September 25th. During late September, however, Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, so check any financial details very carefully.
On October 25th and November 8th respectively, another Solar Eclipse and Lunar Eclipse demand that you shift your opinions, your beliefs and your way of doing things. In the middle of this period, on October 30th, Mars turns retrograde in your career zone until the end of the year – this may be a good time to reassess your priorities and your direction of travel.
Jupiter arrives back in your emotional abundance zone on December 20th, so this Northern Hemisphere mid-winter period is a very good time to work on manifestation and your emotional connection to your material goals.
Saturn’s sign change brings constructive adjustments to your relationships this year, and Pluto starts a lengthy process of redefining your wellness. Jupiter, meanwhile, stretches your horizons and inspires you with enviable optimism.
The year begins with an upswing in your ambitions as Mars turns direct in Gemini on January 12th. There’s early good news for your love life too, with Venus moving into your opposite sign on January 26th, ahead of the New Moon in this zone of your chart on February 20th.
However, one of the biggest moments of the year comes on March 7th. Saturn moves into your opposite sign, for the first time since 1996, and on the very same day, an emotional Virgo Full Moon finds you feeling rather vulnerable. Saturn’s influence here can be grounding and stabilizing if your relationship has issues; but with a stable relationship, it can sometimes be suffocating and depressing. You will need to work hard to keep the passion alive in your love life this year - the New Moon on March 21st will certainly help with that.
On March 23rd, a hugely significant sign change by Pluto puts this planet in your well-being zone for the first time in your life. Over the coming 19 years, you will be able to transform your well-being holistically - but this shift won’t happen overnight, and the early stages of it may well be a struggle, especially for your mental health.
On April 20th, the Solar Eclipse brings drama around intimacy issues, and the ensuing Lunar Eclipse on May 5th could also bring shocking news. This set of Eclipses may feel unstable and anxiety-inducing, but hang in there - on May 16th, Jupiter moves into the most optimistic zone of your chart, ushering in a twelve-month period where you can manifest almost anything. This glorious, joyful influence in your life also encourages travel and education - anything that broadens your horizons is exceptionally well-starred.
Look to July 10th and the arrival of Mars into Virgo for an upswing in energy that helps you to truly embrace this sense of optimism. When Mercury, your ruling planet, moves into Virgo on July 28th, you’ll also be able to make very intelligent strategic decisions about your future.
Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo on August 23rd, which may cause some self-doubt for a while - but the Virgo New Moon on September 14th will boost your confidence, and Mercury turns direct the following day, restoring your peace of mind.
Enjoy the peace while you can, though, because the Solar Eclipse on October 14th may bring a financial shock or upset that will linger in your life. The twin Lunar Eclipse on October 29th conjuncts Jupiter and for a while, your optimism may seem very misplaced. However, a powerful Full Moon at the top of your chart on November 27th reaffirms that you are indeed on the right path.
Keep following that path through the rest of the year. December seems to be a relatively calm and settled month for you, although when Mercury turns retrograde on December 13th, you may feel the need to cut back on some of the festive socializing so that you can avoid being overwhelmed. Don’t worry, it won’t be for long. The Full Moon in your friendship zone on December 26th marks an emotional and joyful return to socializing as the year draws to a close.
As mentioned, it’s Saturn’s arrival in your love zone on March 7th that sets the tone for your romantic year, bringing either greater stability and commitment or perhaps a sense of restriction. Ahead of that, however, Venus’ transit through your love zone begins on January 26th, which should bring some very pleasant moments, and the New Moon in your opposite sign on February 20th is also very promising.
The Virgo Full Moon occurs on March 7th, the day of Saturn’s sign shift, and this does point towards some emotional volatility in your life at this time. Be very open and honest with your partner, even if it’s painful. The New Moon on March 21st will help you to trust when you feel most vulnerable.
The Solar Eclipse on April 20th hits an area of your chart that deals with intimacy, passion, secrets, and obsessions. You may experience a compelling attraction at this time, even if you are otherwise happily settled. Be very careful about the choices you make here as the Lunar Eclipse on May 5th implies that gossip or rumors could bring something hidden to light. If it does, it’s likely to be the Full Moon on June 3rd that brings matters to a crunch point in your personal life.
Mars changes signs on July 10th, arriving in Virgo and boosting your passion, drive, and determination. This can be a wonderful transit for love, turning up the heat and producing just the right amount of romantic fireworks. Although, if your relationship is already on the rocks, this argumentative influence can have dramatic consequences. Venus turns retrograde in your secrets zone on July 22nd, so again, anything illicit may come to light, further increasing the pressure you feel.
The Full Moon in your love zone on August 30th may mark the turning point in your relationship this year. Whatever happens, trust that it will be for the best - and by the time of the Virgo New Moon on September 14th, you will be feeling happier and stronger.
October 14th sees a Solar Eclipse in your money zone, which could provoke tensions at home if one of you feels that the other has been irresponsible. However, with Venus having arrived in Virgo on October 8th, it’s likely that any such antagonism will soon be soothed.
The final two months of 2023 see the focus shifting to your family life, especially when Mars changes signs on November 24th. This is an excellent period for home improvements or even moving - and the New Moon in your family zone on December 12th could herald some very happy news indeed, just in time for the holiday season.
It looks like a slow start to 2023 initially, as Mars is still retrograde in your career zone as the year begins. However, the ambition planet turns direct on January 12th and the New Moon in your everyday work zone on January 21st confirms that your working life gets back up to speed. The first couple of months of the year are good for new initiatives and long-term strategic decisions.
Pluto’s sign change on March 23rd largely affects your holistic well-being, but this area of your natal birth chart also rules relationships with colleagues, your day-to-day responsibilities, personal organization, and routine work. There could well be some adjustment over the coming year as Pluto settles in, perhaps transforming your working environment in some way.
Seek to control emotionally-driven spending during the Full Moon on April 6th, if you can. Venus changes signs on April 11th, heading to the top of your chart and reinforcing your charm and popularity, which is a great sign if you work in sales or marketing, or need to improve the atmosphere at work.
However, the Solar Eclipse on April 20th may bring drama around a debt or loan, while the Lunar Eclipse on May 5th underlines the importance of transparency in communication. This is definitely not a period for underhand deals or rule-breaking.
Jupiter is the planet of abundance and prosperity, and on May 16th Jupiter’s change of sign puts an emphasis firmly on your ideals and vision. Good financial fortune over the next twelve months may come from a humanitarian angle - at the very least, you’ll want to make sure that the way you make your living sits easily with your morals and ethics.
If a change of direction is needed, June 18th would be a good moment. This is when the New Moon shines from the top of your chart. Mercury, your ruling planet, arrived in this zone of your chart a week earlier on June 11th, so any decisions made then will be logic-driven and firmly in your best interests.
You’ll get a strong creative boost when Mercury arrives in Virgo on July 28th, allowing some seriously good ideas to bubble up. However, don't try to implement anything too radical between August 23rd and September 15th, as Mercury will be retrograde in Virgo for that period. Mars heads into the money zone of your natal birth chart on August 27th, so you will be itching to move ahead with a new income stream, but patience pays off. The Virgo New Moon on September 14th marks the moment you can start to move forward again.
However, the Solar Eclipse on October 14th rocks the financial axis of your chart. Shocking news or unprecedented circumstances could derail your plans. Try to stay calm; the Lunar Eclipse on October 28th will reveal hidden information that will help you reassess the situation. The waters will be calmer by the time the Full Moon shines from your career zone on November 27th, enabling you to end the year on an ambitious high note.
Do keep an eye out for Mercury turning retrograde in the risk zone of your chart on December 13th, however. Do not gamble in the final few weeks of the year.
