2020 was the turning point, 2021 the roller coaster, in 2022 the train is changing lanes. Here’s what ancient tarot cards have to say about your sun sign for this year 2022:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You choose your attitude and your approach this year. More expectation, more expectation from others. The more you take charge of your own well-being, the more your world within and around you expands. Labor issues show a revival. Either an old, long-forgotten project resurfaces, or you apply a new strategy. Keep an open mind to new opportunities. They may not be like the old ones, but in the new normal, your flexibility and foresight will help you achieve a lot and reap the rewards. Health issues require an overhaul of your attitude. Something has to change once and for all and only you can make it happen.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
No more procrastination. 2022 marks the year of making big, life-changing decisions or taking a stand on something you’ve been humming for far too long. Decisiveness is the key word for Taurus, and you won’t regret it. Risks will pay off only after a few delays, and choosing to take more responsibility for your life and actions will bring peace. Your moods, however, are a whole other story. There will be days when you can’t wait to get away and days when you don’t feel like getting out of bed. The best advice would be to enroll in a fitness program or diet where physical exercise and good nutrition will give you the energy you need.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
2022 marks the year of the victory of the war. If you have been struggling with a problem or a relationship, chances are you will reach a state of triumph. Moving forward seems to be the key word for Gemini who will work hard to achieve their goals. Somewhere you will learn that dwelling on the past only leads to pain and by releasing the memories you will allow yourself to open up to new positive developments. Financially, a year of slow but sure gains. You might find yourself too bogged down in paperwork and bureaucracy. Avoid taking shortcuts and realize that everything will be fine in the ultimate scan. On the health side, consider including alternative therapies and stick to your diet!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Stand up for what you believe in and don’t believe anything or anyone who tries to get you out of your way. 2022 marks a new beginning, a time to gather your resources, gather your inner strength, and show them all the good things you are made of. The coming months favor leaders, companies, freelancers and startups. Your clear mind, willingness to work hard, and vision for the future will see a number of people align with your thoughts and ways. Prepare for greater responsibilities at work and even within the family. Results may be slow, but persistence pays off in the long run. Always. On the health side, do not get carried away by your imagination and too much research on the net. There may be a simple solution or remedy at hand.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
2022 is turning out to be a life-changing year for Leos. Transformation begins when you recognize your own behavioral patterns and make the necessary changes. An awakening can bring about a change in your lifestyle or the way you work. Your passion and optimism will be a blessing to those around you who may turn to you for support and guidance. And if your heart isn’t in something, you can decide to quit work, end a relationship, or just start over. Beware of overthinking and taking on more than you should handle. Delegate responsibilities. Make time for meditation and stress relief as a practice.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
A year of give and take and reaping the rewards of good karma. 2022 is no ordinary year for Virgos. Be aware of every interaction as the consequences can be felt almost instantly in many cases. Relationships take on a new flavor where practical matters take precedence over emotions. Work-wise, harmony exists as long as you think of others and focus on collaboration rather than instructions or directives. Expenses can be high, so control the urge to splurge and revamp your investments. The cards invite you to balance your life and, above all, your health. Moderation will be your mantra for any lifestyle change you wish to incorporate.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
In many ways, 2022 brings some peace and relief to Libras. Problems that have been bothering you for ages might suddenly find a solution, and if you’ve been confused about an important decision, an elderly man’s advice might be just what you need to hear. With your will and your mind, breakthroughs are possible. Moments of introspection bring the expected results. Financially, a year where moments of relief can make up for days of delay and temporary stress. A loan is repaid. The papers are erased. Lengthy negotiations come win-win or you choose a job with a much higher salary package. Although it may be tempting to splurge on your winnings, the cards advise you to save and invest for the future. You may have learned a few lessons during the drought period and now is the time to apply them. Don’t take health issues for granted.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Spiritually, 2022 is the year of higher learning and the rewards that come with it when we learn from the elders and sages. Meditation, alternative healing, yoga and related holistic practices would bring a deeper sense of peace and purpose. If you plan to study further, the year makes it easier to research, analyze, read, and write, giving your sharp mind an extra edge. When in doubt, turn to the proven ones. You can receive praise or recognition for your efforts as long as you focus on collective benefit. Team players become leaders. On the health side, this is the year of recovery. If you’ve been sick or overly stressed, the cards urge you to take frequent breaks.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Don’t be pushed by problems, let your goals and dreams guide you. The old method no longer works. 2022 teaches Sagittarians not to be too set in their ways. Open your mind to new possibilities and opportunities in all areas of your life. Stay flexible, and as long as you listen to what others are saying, there are wins and glory for all. New partnerships and alliances are seen professionally and personally and many stereotypes are shattered as you discover how much you have changed. Major decisions regarding residence, career and finances in mid-2022. The birth of a new idea. Health issues remain manageable when you remain mindful of your physical body.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn, the key to 2022 is confidence. The more you believe in yourself, the more things work in your favor. Even the slightest doubt can affect your performance and your mindset, so work doubly hard to erase any negative self-talk and be sure to remember that you can do it. On the work side, things can get boring and monotonous. You may not feel like continuing and want to get out of the circumstances you find yourself in. Again, if you think you deserve better, do something about it. Changes await you, but only after taking the step in this direction. Independent Capricorns can choose to re-enter the workforce. Startups can change direction. Companies may consider diversifying or expanding the product line. Health questions remain good as long as you stay attentive.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Variety is the spice of life, but at some point you have to stabilize. You realize that you can’t keep changing your mind, job, friend, car in the hope that something better comes your way. Satisfaction and peace will only come if you accept and persist. Your mind may be restless or you may be filled with doubts and it would be wise to fight the urge to run. Stay where you are and show them what the cards seem to say. Financially, progress is possible but only after encountering sudden changes or even delays. Perseverance pays. Decide to give up something that you know isn’t good for your health.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Some years are turning points in our lives and 2022 seems like a monumental year for Pisces. Something ends and something begins. You are completing a major cycle in your life and embarking on a new chapter one with its share of ups and downs but where you are so much stronger and wiser than before. This year promotes upgrades, especially in knowledge, education and training. A relocation to another city or another country is likely and if you are in the job market, 2022 guarantees a placement in an established institution or organization, but after some conflicts and even fierce competition. Financially and professionally, the cards urge you to be careful who you trust. Trust your instincts about an associate or colleague at work. Someone may not be what they appear to be. Your income may increase but you will need to balance your expenses wisely. Your tendency to splurge can temporarily cause budget problems. Health is yours this year. You will find that you sleep better and if you are recovering, 2022 assures you of recovery.
