Your Horoscope for 2022 with Astrologer Bethany Marple
As we step into the new year, sometimes it can feel a bit daunting just thinking about what can be coming our way, especially after the last two years!

That’s why astrology is such an amazing tool to help us interpret what’s to come. Astrology is a practice that tracks the movement of celestial bodies and their impact on the earth. We can look ahead at what the planets are doing for the year to understand the energy and themes that will be activated over the next 12 months, clueing us in to how we’ll be affected.

While these energies are felt collectively, it can vary so much for each individual person. That’s because we were all born at a completely unique time – the position of the stars and planets when we were born alters how the planetary movements may affect us, so what may feel like a calming or grounding time for some might feel like an energising or activating time for others! Below we have broken down some key astrological events for each sign to help you understand what’s to come in 2022.

 

ARIES

This year, you’re invited to reflect on your actions, Aries! Yes, it’s your superpower to move with precision and efficiency, but this year, you’re being encouraged to ask – why? What’s the reason behind what you do? Developing a deeper understanding of your subconscious patterns through journaling, therapy, or meditation will help you clarify your actions and understand what your next step is. As your ruling planet, Mars, enters a retrograde period (30 Oct–Jan 12), you’re invited to think before you act – not to second guess yourself, but to expand your perspective to see if there is a better course you can take, particularly when it comes to work and your community. And most importantly, think before you speak! Remember, your words have power, so use them carefully!

 

TAURUS

You are being asked to step out of the shadows, Taurus! Sometimes are comfort zone can keep us feeling introspective, wanting to stay private and comfortable. As the South Node shifts into Scorpio in January, this year is all about developing deeper connections in your relationships and letting go of any past fear and betrayal that may be lingering. You don’t need to worry because the same cycles are not repeating – you are in completely new energy! As the North Node enters Taurus (also in January, and it will be there for 18 months), you are entering a time of embodiment and expressing your true self – live it up, Taurus! This year everyone is seeing your beauty as the gift it is.

 

GEMINI

This year is majorly expansive for you, especially in your career! Taking a more intuitive approach to your career decisions and really doing what feels good for your heart will open so many opportunities for you, especially around April 12, when heavy hitters Jupiter (ruler of abundance) and Neptune (ruler of dreams and vision) meet up in the sign of Pisces (connected to our intuition and emotions). At this time, you’ll see an expansion of your visions for your career, and it will feel like the missing puzzle pieces falling into place. Let off the accelerator this year – as Mars enters a retrograde period in your sign (Oct 30–Jan 12), you are being invited to brainstorm and bring ideas forward, remembering that we don’t have to act all the time.

 

CANCER

Feeling deeply called to learning and expanding your mind? As Jupiter moves through Pisces for most of 2022, you may feel a yearning to learn new skills, modalities, or tools. Maybe there’s that course you’ve been dying to take, or even a new hobby to take up. Follow what feels good for your heart this year, Cancer, as your inner child will benefit from a bit of creativity and fun throughout the year – something we can so easily forget to prioritise. Then, in May, as Jupiter moves into Aries, you may be called up to bring these skills to your career! Remember, when we work on ourselves, everyone around us heals.

 

LEO

Sometimes the things that used to light you up can lose their shine. Use this year to explore all the things that light you up, Leo! As Jupiter enters Aries (May 10), you’re being asked to embody and explore what expands you. And know that it’s okay if these things change over time! Maybe it used to be going out and having a crazy adventure, and maybe now it’s building a comforting home, or exploring a new creative outlet. Embrace the now, Leo, an honour where you’re at rather than trying to force yourself into old patterns. Holding space for this new version of yourself will illuminate your path and any career uncertainty that has been building!

 

VIRGO

As the North Node moves into Taurus in January (and will be there for 18 months!), you can expect this year to bring a lot of expansion, particularly in areas of study and travel. You will feel called to further learning that feels in alignment with your values and using your creative thinking will support you in this. Seek mentors and courses that expand your way of thinking to help see a bigger picture! This self-development will come in handy as Mars Retrograde (30 Oct–Jan 12) asks us to review our career goals and realign our actions. This is a year for dropping time wasters and embracing the things that make us feel truly valued!


LIBRA

Expect to see expansion of self-love this year! Your ruling planet, Venus, starts off the year in a retrograde phase (finishing up January 29), which allows us to see clearly what in our relationships no longer serves us, and asks us to redirect that energy inwards. Devote time daily to your self-care by creating nourishing daily practices, noting that this doesn’t always look like face masks and chocolate! Meditation, journaling, and moving our bodies are all powerful ways to connect more deeply with the self. You may find yourself standing up for yourself in relationships, putting up boundaries – know that this shows a deeper level of devotion and care for self.

 

SCORPIO

As the South Node moves into your sign in January (and will be there for 18 months!), we’re stepping into deeper devotion to self! Spend more time this year connecting with your body. Maybe you’ll feel called to up the self-care, or to reinvent your look! But remember that your beauty is something to embrace and enhance, not change or hide! The eclipses in Scorpio (Lunar Eclipse on May 16 and Solar Eclipse on Oct 25) will help us more truly understand and accept ourselves, to hold space for evolutions in our relationships! Remember to ask for help this year, Scorpio – you don’t have to go it alone this year. This year will bring a new feeling of safety, security, and stability in your relationships. The people in your life are here for the long haul!

 

SAGITTARIUS

Creating a harmonious and safe home base will be so important this year! You may feel called to change and tweak and rework the interior of your house this year so that it becomes more of a reflection of your heart. Hang up lots of photos, have a bunch of comfy blankets around – allow yourself to feel deeply safe at home. As your ruling planet, Jupiter, enters Pisces for ten months of the year, you may seek comfort in the spiritual! Having a safe space to meditate, keep your crystals, or pull some tarot cards will help your heart feel settled when the world feels unstable. Embracing your inner mystic may just fulfil that longing for expansion you’ve been seeking.

 

CAPRICORN

As the North Node moves into Taurus in January (for the next 18 months), you are being called to embrace joy this year! The last two years of astrology have been very Saturn-heavy (hello to your ruling planet!) and so we have been feeling restricted, structured, and leaning a bit too much into rigidity. This year, we’re reminded that it’s okay to have fun! Schedule time for creativity without needing an outcome – especially around the time of Saturn’s Retrograde (4 Jun–Oct 23), as we will feel relief from our responsibilities and be able to drop expectations and embrace opportunities! Do the things that make you feel good this year, Capricorn.

 

AQUARIUS

Starting off the year with a Mercury Retrograde in your sign (Jan 14–Feb 3), communication is a big theme this year, Aquarius! Remembering that patience is a virtue, we can use this time to review our communication styles and see where we’re overcomplicating things. If you want to say something, you are safe to speak directly! When Jupiter (the planet that rules expansion) enters Aries on May 10, we’re being called to speak up this year. Remember, you don’t always have to prioritise what others are doing – your path is the most important! Don’t let fear stop you from aiming big, especially when it comes to your career and mission. Your ability to aim high is what sets you apart from others.

 

PISCES

Showing love and kindness to yourself this year is the key to staying grounded! As your ruling planets, Jupiter and Neptune, both traverse Pisces together, you may feel expanded, exhilarated, and optimistic! You may also struggle to see your own value, getting lost in what others expect of how you look or what you do. Bring that focus back to you and what your soul really wants, because this year marks the start of a new cycle of self-love! Parts of yourself that maybe you’ve struggled to understand will come to light and you will see yourself in a new way. This may manifest as a change in your look, how you speak, or the people you spend time with. Either way, this year you are stepping into more authentic self-expression – own it!
