At the top of your agenda as we kick things off are work and money. An evaluation may be underway on the career front that sees you revamping everything from your resume and professional headshots, to an entrepreneurial launch and your overall legacy.
You may be considering the value you add in a company setting, as well as how you are being properly compensated for the expertise you bring to the table. If negotiating a salary adjustment or new hire contract, expect an ongoing review, along with delays and misunderstandings throughout all of January.
Destiny may favor you as a cosmic turning point brings focus to finances, investments, your self-esteem and overall sense of self-worth. This may not only play out on the career front. Property matters, the give-and-take in relationships, and other exchanges of energy feature. Your values are changing, and as a result, so too will the investments you make with your resources (time, money, love, etc.).
It might be worth reconnecting to your own faith-based practices as events unfold in early 2022, especially if overcoming inner fears and doubts that get in the way of you pursuing the career path, material wealth, and people you value. Jupiter in Pisces throughout half the year will enhance your awareness of how you may inadvertently self-sabotage your own efforts. New insights should propel you forward in a more confident light once Jupiter enters your sign later in the year. So be sure to reflect on how you might acquire greater abundance in life overall, however you define it.
A surge of energy will be felt as soon as we reach the spring equinox in March – your birthday season! Life will pick up pace as events move forward on the career and financial fronts. That said, another round of hiccups and delays courtesy of another Mercury retrograde may see you waiting for a tax refund in May or experiencing misunderstandings as it pertains to financial documents. This is especially true if securing funding on an educational endeavor or negotiating settlement on a new property.
The plot thickens once eclipses hit. A solar eclipse on April 30th marks a new chapter involving your finances and resources, but something may need to be divided, settled, sold, or surrendered at the lunar eclipse on May 16th before you can receive what is owed. FYI, this could also involve a sexual tie or marital contract. What culminates will beg the need for you to give a little in order to get a little.
Once Mercury stations direct in June, financial matters should resolve. Life will get back to the pace you prefer, especially since the planet Jupiter will have finally ingressed your sign. Consider this a cosmic blessing, Ram! You will be feeling energized and confident to assert independent pursuits, doing so rather unapologetically.
In fact, the summer season sees you in your element as home, family, fun, play, children, creative aims, recreation, romance, and other pleasurable indulgences fill your plate! You can accomplish so much under this cosmic weather, so be sure to use the energy afoot to your advantage. Jupiter’s transit of Aries will only last a few months before the biggest planet in our solar system returns to the sign of Pisces through January 2023 during its retrograde. Jupiter will come back to your sign again next year, too. So, use this short stint to “level-up” and center your own journey of becoming.
The final month of summer brings busy days, meanwhile. Doctor appointments, increased activities on the work front, ongoing chores and responsibilities, health matters, or all the above fill your schedule during the third quarter of the year. What’s more, Mercury will retrograde again mid-September through the first week of October initiating a few hiccups in personal relationships.
Misunderstandings with loved ones feature – a spouse, close friend, business partner, relative, etc. What arises may also bring disruption to your regular schedule and events. As always when the messenger planet does its backtrack around the almighty Sun, be patient and flexible. You’ll need to keep your wits about you as we close out the year.
When Mercury stations direct in October, busy days will become manageable. But another choppy cosmic period will bring us to the close of 2022.
For starters, a second pair of eclipses peak on October 25th (solar) and November 8th (lunar), bringing new chapters, once again, that center finances and shared resources. These will be important themes all year-long, Aries. The Universe will be bringing you opportunities to get your financial affairs for the purpose of comfort and security, so take heed. But the big news of this period involves Mars retrograde.
Of all the planets that retrograde, Mars is the hardest to navigate. This planet connects us to our willpower and assertion. But when retrograde, our efforts are thwarted. This will be especially difficult for you, dear Aries, because Mars is your ruling planet in Astrology. You will have to ground your energy a bit and find a channel for pent-up frustrations. Mars will stay retrograde through January 13, 2023.
This cosmic event will affect you personally when it comes to learning endeavors, education, training, and activities playing out in your community. You may be juggling several projects at school, coordinating a relocation, or launching a seminar that comes with a lot of moving parts. Along the way, you may have to bob, weave, and redirect your efforts. This may feel a bit “manic,” to be honest. So, find your pace, especially if launching a communications platform, participating in online events, or being trained in new technology.
This is how the year ends, Ram. But there are so many other life events unfolding that will keep you in high spirits and grateful. Travel, for example, is possible, whether a quick getaway or journeys abroad toward the end of the year. What’s more, you may be feeling hopeful with an aspirational goal that inspires hope.
2022 can conclude however you want, and it may require some additional rest and reflection to gain clarity. So, stick to your vision, whatever that may be, without worry or concern. When in doubt, remember to turn back to your faith and stay there. This is not the year to strongarm your way through an agenda. A little patience and trust will go a long way.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, ARIES!
