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.
Love and Romance
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.
Money and Career
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.
