What does 2022 have in store for you? Study your horoscope to discover how your star sign will affect the next 12 months

Have the stars aligned for you in the new year?

By Lilith Rocha
After the turbulent uncertainty of recent cycles, Jupiter in the zodiac's final sign this year offers deeper insights into the psyche of society and humanity's destiny.
Generous Jupiter in empathetic Pisces, the zodiac's poet, suggests greater financial recognition of the arts, healing and teaching professions.
While our solar system's largest planet paints an uplifting, idealistic picture of future possibilities, its flip side can be unrealistic and its inflationary energy in a water sign predicts widespread flooding.
Change maker Uranus continues rocking global politics and economies, bringing radical changes to the way we earn, spend and shop.
Operating through Taurus, the most tactile of earth signs, it stresses the necessity of staying in touch with each other and the natural world.
As we're all called to make important decisions during the new abnormal of 2022, Saturn reminds us yet again that it's not someone else's responsibility to take care of the world – it's ours.

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 21

Big Picture: 2022 is about decluttering your inner and outer worlds in preparation for the fabulous mid-year rebirth of Jupiter in Aries. You'll taste its first surge from May to October, then again from late December into next year.
Money Matters: Material wealth matters less this year than more important values, like are you making a worthwhile contribution? Several eclipses in your money sector could bring unexpected openings. Watch for a mid-year Mars/Jupiter meet-up revealing an untapped resource.
Connections: As Saturn completes its restructure of Aries relationships, social circles shift away from draining alliances in favour of collaborators who are a better fit. A previous enemy or competitor could now become a friend.
The Inner You: With this year enhancing your understanding of how the subconscious mind works, overcoming deeply ingrained fears and historic hurts could be quite pleasurable. Empathy and tolerance blossom by helping others, but remember to take care of yourself as well.
Food For Thought: "If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere. I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough? One can speak poetry just by arranging colours well, just as one can say comforting things in music. Love many things, for therein lies the true strength ... and what is done in love is done well." – Aries artist Vincent van Gogh

TAURUS Apr 22-May 21

Big Picture: Jupiter makes this year's choices less about expectations, more about enjoyment. Uranus continues inviting you to let go of the familiar, to shed outgrown personas in your style, expression and presentation.
Money Matters: As Pluto overhauls long-term values Jupiter has a more immediate effect, and 2022 restores cautious confidence in your changing economy. While financial rewards from doing what you really love may or may not be less, the soul satisfaction is assured.
Connections: Jupiter's genial boost loosens you up to new directions in romance, friendship and community groups. People coming into your life with interesting tech and networking skills are likely to be fun, inspirational and supportive – some of them your true tribe.
The Inner You: Taureans use comfort to cope with the chaos of life, grounding themselves in material surroundings that communicate serenity. As you appreciate the value of what you already have, the more authentic you that emerges might surprise others. Might surprise yourself...
Food For Thought: "There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it." – Taurean dancer Martha Graham

GEMINI May 22-Jun 22

Big Picture: Jupiter's status upgrade has 2022 looking like your year in the limelight. Expect appreciation of your talents and accomplishments, bringing promotion, awards or career advancement – along with increased responsibility.
Money Matters: With Pluto winding up its final year of economic lessons, 2022 brings new financial opportunities – with the giant proviso that this period is notoriously fraught with unscrupulous fraudsters, so choose projects and friends wisely and carefully.
Connections: Look who's the popular community player as supportive mentors flock to your orbit, and friendships flourish with colleagues who can further your business interests. A partner could be integral, and might also find you writing a new chapter in your personal book of love.
The Inner You: With so much external activity, avoid overdoing it. Set limits and boundaries. Time away from digital distractions and juggling a dozen different thought streams is more important than ever this year.
Food For Thought: "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength ... There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of birds, the ebb and flow of tides, the folded bud ready for spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after the night and spring after the winter." – Gemini conservationist Rachel Carson

CANCER Jun 23-Jul 23

Big Picture: As Jupiter explodes a depth charge in your belief systems and personal perspective, 2022 activates the enhanced understanding part of the Crab clan's chart. It's not easy playing truth sleuth in a culture of backstage power dynamics, but this year strengthens your courage to speak out for what you believe in.
Money Matters: Saturn might be organising Cancerian economics this year, but Jupiter could blow some of those old saving stories out of the water. If you normally have a budget that doesn't quite work, try a plan instead that allots a specific sum for enjoyment and pleasure. While Saturn's into money management, Jupiter just loves having fun.
Connections: With the pairing of Jupiter and Neptune in a fellow water-sign, unusual one-offs who aren't usually your type can motivate and inspire. Look for a variety of personalities who invite your intuition and imagination to play.
The Inner You: As you ditch ideas that no longer apply, Jupiter's influence on your mood makes minor inconveniences less stressful. While opening up your armour isn't comfortable, being honest and vulnerable will attract intimacy you crave.
Food For Thought: "Men shouldn't have to bear the burden of our remembrance. It's not their function to remind us we are goddesses. It's our function to remember it ... When we remember, they will too." – Cancerian activist Marianne Williamson

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23

Big Picture: This is a year of getting to know yourself and transforming your relationships with others. As you delete outworn stories, you'll be less caught in the drama of dominant narratives. Developing greater trust in your inner knowing, you'll encourage others with confidence and creative style.
Money Matters: Combining resources and talents with the right partner could significantly improve this year's financial outlook. While credit might be easily available, be wary of over-extending. Financial scammers are rife, making extra online precautions necessary.
Connections: As 2022 increases maturity and commitment in relationships, forgiveness could be a major theme. After Mars makes its late August appearance in your sector of friends and community groups for a rare seven-month stayover, be on the lookout for well-connected benefactors or professional mentors.
The Inner You: This year's astral travel promo makes your internal landscape the trendiest destination ever. Trek to thrilling emotional depths. Dive and discover psychological knots from ancient history. Find buried treasure.
Food For Thought: "Heart is what drives us and determines our fate. That is what I need for my characters in my books: a passionate heart. I need mavericks, dissidents, adventurers, outsiders and rebels, who ask questions, bend the rules and take risks." – Leo writer Isabel Allende

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23

Big Picture: Jupiter in Pisces makes 2022 a powerful year for upgrading relationships and partner agreements. As you become more willing to compromise, your ability to negotiate mutually-beneficial arrangements expands exponentially.
Money Matters: This year supports a financial reset: getting more bang for your buck by brokering better deals with service providers, reducing fees and overheads. As you further develop your areas of expertise, funds earned with others could also bring an economic upturn.
Connections: As a magical Jupiter/Neptunian hook-up showers blessings, friendships that might have tired a little can revive. And that's not all: for five months Jupiter in Aries jazzes up your social life even further, so be the one to initiate those overdue catch-ups.
The Inner You: With Saturn winding up in your work zone, don't set yourself a punishing pace. Practise saying no, especially to your inner perfectionista. Forget apps: establish where happiness is most available to you in the real world. Above all, regularly lavish yourself with something luxe and utterly indulgent.
Food For Thought: "No-one yet has made a list of places where the extraordinary may happen and where it may not. Still, there are indications ... It likes the out-of-doors. It likes the concentrating mind. It likes solitude." – Virgo poet Mary Oliver

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23

Big Picture: During 2022 Jupiter pays its 12-yearly visit to buff up your health, habits and daily schedules. Libra's biggest challenge will be addressing problems and upsets directly – but don't forget you're one of the zodiac's visionary leaders.
Money Matters: In this year's financial climate, the way things used to work may not apply and you might find your personal wealth in areas other than money. As 2022 tests Libran flexibility levels, the best economic results come from staying positive and developing mastery via further learning.
Connections: Jupiter in sharing, caring Pisces for half the year, and my-turn-now Aries for the other half offer an overall balance for your relational scales. Libra's most valuable contribution is your expertise in scheduling events that get people together and bring out the best in them.
The Inner You: Saturn spending its last year in the joy division of your chart insists you find the delight in life, even in adverse circumstances. Look for the immense satisfaction available from being useful. Infuse more worth, pleasure and beauty into everyday activities by elevating routines into rituals.
Food For Thought: One must think with the body and the soul or not think at all. The manifestation of the wind of thought is not knowledge, but the ability to tell right from wrong, beautiful from ugly." – Libran political philosopher Hannah Arendt

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22

Big Picture: Jupiter spends roughly every 12th year in your astral house of fun and frolics, and 2022 invites your romantic, entertaining side out to play. As values of sensitivity and compassion gain greater traction, this is your year for self-expression and creative exploration.
Money Matters: For the first half of 2022, Jupiter offers a fertile cycle for increasing your income through developing a talent or passion. The expansive planet's mid-year move to Aries calls time for bringing that creation into the world: marketing its presentation for maximum impact.
Connections: Saturn restructuring your family dynamics continues questioning how you want to live and who with. Scorpios are more about core connections than casual acquaintances, but stimulating artistic or philanthropic networks could infuse this year with deeper, meaning.
The Inner You: What to avoid this year? Strict definitions that don't allow for alternative possibilities. Unhelpful criticism or fault-finding. Your phoenix spirit is ready to rise from the ashes of the past few years, so lean into the massive support available from a boundless universe.
Food For Thought: "If you can fill the journey of a minute; With 60 seconds worth of wonder and delight; Then the earth is yours and everything that's in it; But more than that
I know you'll be alright; Cause you've got the fight, you've got the insight ..." – Scorpio singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell


Big Picture: Every 12 years your ruling planet Jupiter sends Sagittarians into nest-feathering mode, with 2022 set to change living arrangements, improve family dynamics and engage domestic upgrades. Since your gypsy spirit loves being on the move, this may involve relocating.
Money Matters: During 2022 worldly pursuits and professional ambitions could be less prominent. Pluto's lessons in financial management caution against overextending on home renos or flashing the plastic too enthusiastically.
Connections: All relationships have the capacity to benefit this year, including your relationship with yourself. Family problems could resolve as you experience a desire to reconnect with your roots. Sagittarian social life explodes into Technicolor splendour, with Mars in party mode later this year.
The Inner You: With Jupiter in Pisces increasing your ability to go with the flow, you'll be happier with what you have and likely to find that what you always wanted is what you've already got. This year makes it easier to make peace with past disappointments rooted in family history.
Food For Thought: "Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between this world and the next. We can choose to walk through it ... lightly with little luggage, ready to imagine another world." – Sagittarian author Arundhati Ro

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20

Big Picture: With Jupiter switching on your communications centre, this year finds you extra perceptive, fluent and persuasive. Others are receptive to your ideas and impressed with what you have to say. A busy, exciting year, but keep it simple and avoid overload.
Money Matters: Mercury's early year retrograde works well for a rejig of your money mindset to keep expectations realistic. As Saturn completes its final year through your money zone, time management gets the best returns for your hard work.
Connections: Jupiter staying half the year in your home and family sector could see you spending more time with relatives. As you identify less with material achievements and empathy escalates, all relationships improve, but especially renewed intimacy with those who matter most in your life.
The Inner You: As Uranus continues your ongoing growth process, what used to make you happy may lose its attraction as you begin to feel the need for something different. Unexperienced pleasure portals open when you're willing to experiment, and an error or missed opportunity could be the catalyst for something new and beautiful to emerge.
Food For Thought: "Sometimes ... we don't want to feel like a postmodern, postfeminist, overstretched woman, but rather a domestic goddess, trailing nutmeggy fumes of baking pie in our languorous wake." – Capricorn domestic goddess Nigella Lawson

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19

Big Picture: Aquarians crave security, which this year arrives in the form of confidence in your own intuition as a navigation tool. Your self-assurance strengthens as Saturn applies the finishing touches to a cycle of maturity which won't come round again for another 30 years.
Money Matters: Jupiter lights up your money sector once every 12 years and this is it. Income is likely to increase, although so will expenses. While this cycle benefits building on existing resources, it warns against overspending or jumping into new ventures without due diligence.
Connections: Yes, this year's people are over-emoting; react and there'll be a perceived lack of empathy on your part. If others don't seem to be operating from the empire of the sensible, try this: whatever your love language is, just keep letting them know it.
The Inner You: Saturn only visits each sign once or twice in a lifetime, and as 2022 finalises its three-year cycle it asks you to craft a foundation you can trust: promises and commitments to yourself, regardless of external circumstance.
Food For Thought: "I imagine good teaching as a circle of earnest people sitting down to ask each other meaningful questions. I don't see it as a handing down of answers. I'm always amazed that people will actually choose to sit in front of the television and just be savaged by stuff that belittles their intelligence." – Aquarian writer Alice Walker

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20

Big Picture: Jupiter spends half of 2022 aligned with Neptune in your sign: a magical marriage blessed with a sense of flow and progress, a spirit of altruism and the panoramic wisdom of the big picture. Projects materialise, things come together, your faith is restored.
Money Matters: Jupiter's golden influence in Pisces couldn't be more auspicious. While the planet of abundance doesn't just dump money in your lap, Jupiter's vibrational frequency promotes a confident mindset that attracts financial windfalls, additional income and promising prospects.
Connections: 2022 opens and closes with Venus rearranging your social networks, which won't all be plain sailing as friendships past their due date expire. But with Jupiter amping up your personal magnetism, there's no shortage of interesting newbies jostling to get up close with you.
The Inner You: Feelings aren't really effective unless they're expressed. Actions speak louder than intent, and Jupiter encourages more effort in getting those emotions on the move this year – with particular focus on bringing your inner leader out into the world on behalf of what you care about.
Food For Thought: "We've got to hold on to what we've got; We've got each other and that's a lot; For love we'll give it a shot; Woah, we're halfway there; Woah, livin' on a prayer; Take my hand, we'll make it I swear; Woah, livin' on a prayer ..." – Piscean singer-songwriter Jon Bon Jovi
