Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): January 2022 may begin with a lot of challenges regarding the romantic area of life, your career, money through your job, and personal communication, and the predominant theme is that of forging the new way ahead in the new year. However, optimism may be running high, and you may have a desire to travel, so if the environment says it is possible, you may want to consider it. As the month moves on, you may find that things get more interesting. Overall, a lot of the challenges may resolve themselves, but now a Mercury retrograde occurs, telling us communication issues may center around friends and social circles. There may still be challenges regarding money and your love life, but these will resolve soon, and the intensity in the latter part of the month will not be as severe as earlier.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): The Venus retrograde at the start of January may either be gentler with you than it is other signs, or more extreme than others, but other than that, you may find that January 2022 begins as “business as usual,” in context of what it has been in the recent past. The time is right to focus on long-term plans for work, your career, and where you are going in life, so it would be wise to focus on these in the beginning of the month. However, as the month progresses, you may find challenges that come up once Mercury retrograde. These communication issues may have to do with your social circle, friends, and embracing new, improved ideas that come your way. Jupiter in Pisces tells us now is the time to live your spirituality, and to improve your connection with the divine through meditation.
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Emotional tension may be how January begins, and this may boil over to being short-tempered and accident prone when traveling, so it would be wise to play things safe, calm, and collected. You may also find that with Jupiter entering Pisces, spiritual issues are unearthed to be addressed, and that if you want your fortune to change, you have to change to receive it. It might also be a good time to re-evaluate what you do for fun, and to take another look at bad habits. As January moves forward, you may find that for the most part things get gentler, with one exception, the Mercury retrograde. Later in the month it would still be wise to be cautious while traveling, but the Mercury retrograde will keep you busy because it plays out in your social circles and institutions. You may also find that it might be wise to make some minor adjustments regarding money you get through work.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): I hope you’re ready, because January 2022 is coming in with a bang. You may find tension and challenges in most areas of your life as the month begins, and while this happens every year around this time due to the Capricorn activity, this year it may be more intense due to the Venus retrograde. However, Jupiter in Pisces tells us it is now an appropriate time to develop your spirituality to the next level, and to find guidance and comfort in that. As the month moves forward, you may find that things ease up dramatically. You may still find challenges when it comes to your romantic life, money through work, and creativity, but by the end of the month things will ease up there, too. In the latter weeks of January, you may find the best way to proceed is analytically and in a grounded fashion.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): Optimism, extra energy, and making changes may all be themes that begin the month, so it would be wise to remember that this is a new year, full of potential to be had. Specifically, you may find comfort and joy in traveling, weather permitting. You may also find it wise to take a second look at your financial investments to cover your bases and see if changes should be made. As the month progresses, you may find that things change for the more intense. The Mercury retrograde may bring tension to your social scene, and in generally it is calling for changes and resolutions when it comes to that area of your life. Part of the lesson here lies in adapting to the new and innovative rather than the tried, true, and comfortable. You may also find that there are general life challenges too, but these will ease up in mid-February.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): Jupiter entering Pisces may bring your attention to the spiritual side of life, specifically the ungrounded, intuitive trust required to take your growth to the next level, so it would be wise to embrace the unknown, but specifically as it has to do with your spiritual growth and direction in life. In contrast to this, you may find that the attention is fully on your career and occupation. The Venus retrograde in Capricorn tells us it is not only time to review your romantic interests, it is also time to review your creative outlets and how you handle money through your job. You may also be emotionally out of sorts at the beginning, but this will only last a few days. As the month moves on, you may find that the Mercury retrograde hits harder than normal, especially when it comes to your social circles and friends. With several minor adjustments, you can unlock career opportunities and take greater control over the direction in your life.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Challenges in many areas of your life may be the theme for the beginning of January, and while this is true on average, what sets this year apart is the Venus retrograde in Capricorn. This tells us it is time to review what you’re doing professionally, romantically, and creatively, as it is time for something new and different to take you to the next level. However, you may also find optimism is an ally, and that a trip may help with that transition, weather permitting. As the month moves on, you may find that things get substantially better, but also that the challenges with money through the career and your love life continue. You may also experience blocks in your creativity, but most of this will clear up by January 30th. You may also find that the Mercury retrograde takes center stage, focusing on your social circles, friends, and embracing the new, if it is appropriate.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Even with the Venus retrograde in Capricorn, you may find that January begins nice and smoothly, especially when it comes to your business, career, and overall direction in life. It is a good time to review how you handle your money, and your romantic situations. You may also find it wise to develop new hobbies as creative outlets. As the month moves forward, you may discover that things get more challenging, especially when it comes to your social circles and friends. You may find it is time to review these relationships, and to consider embracing the new when it comes along. Emotionally you may find comfort in using your analytical skills and your daily work routine. It would also be wise to let go of the past in the name of a fresh start.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Emotionally you may be on top of the world as the new year begins, so it would be wise to embrace your optimism and carefree attitude. You may also find comfort in taking trips for recreation, and your energy levels may be higher than normal. Jupiter entering Pisces though, may call your attention to making spiritual changes. As the month moves forward, you may find that communication challenges come up regarding your friends and social scene, and it may also be time for a review regarding embracing the new and different. Emotionally you may be out of sorts the later it gets in the month, and this is due to having to be grounded in order to get things done, instead of free-wheeling and fancy-free.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Happy birthday Capricorns! This is your month, and what a month it is! While it is generally business as usual, you may find that the Venus retrograde is drawing your attention to resolving money situations stemming from work, and your romantic life may require some attention and adjustment as well. Jupiter entering Pisces may bring good things your way if you listen to your intuition and find practical, grounded ways to manifest your vision of your life. As the month moves on, you may discover that things get a bit more challenging, but all it takes are a series of minor adjustments to stay on point. You may also find it wise to stay analytical, grounded, and to eat well to maintain your health.
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Optimism, extra energy, and a desire to journey, may all be major themes as January begins, but besides that, you may find it is now time to make minor adjustments when it comes to how you manage your money in order to get where you’re going in life. While a lot of other signs are getting a large impact at the start of the month, this may not be true for you, but don’t get too excited, as the second half of January will change that. As the month moves forward, you may find that communication challenges with your friends and social life take center stage due to the Mercury retrograde in your sign, and because it is retrograde in your sign, you may find it impacts most of your life in general. It is also worth noting that it would be wise to watch out for accidents involving your wrists, bones, and circulatory system.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): You may find that emotionally you are out of sorts as the month begins, and this may bleed over into being short-tempered and accident prone if you try to rush through things, so it is wise to remember that patience is your ally. You may also find it wise to be safe when traveling. Business may be rolling along nice and smoothly though, and Jupiter’s ingress into your sign may bring unseen blessings and a deeper spiritual connection. As the month progresses, you may find it wise to make appropriate, small-scale changes, but the month does end as it begins, with out-of-sorts emotions. You may also find that it is wise to watch what you eat during the last week, and to be safe when it comes to communicating and your romantic relationships.
