The elements Air, Water, Fire and Earth are a big part of astrology. For the last 200 years, society has had “Earth” based values. Status and wealth were based on land, real estate, manufacturing and tangible assets. This is a world of top-down management where few have all the wealth. Last year, we began a new 200-year cycle, which will be “Air” based. COVID acted like a slingshot launching these new values into our world: Decentralization of big systems; greater respect for individual rights; universal income; medical care and education for everyone. We will have startling advances in technology. We will continue to relate through monitors, and eventually holograms. Millions will work from home. This is what’s happening. Buy sweat pants now.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is a lovely, upbeat week and a wonderful introduction to this new year. You are high viz. People notice you more than usual especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. (Incidentally this includes the police.) Your desire to travel will be strong. You’re keen to talk to younger people, especially people from your past because Mercury is slowing down now getting ready to go retrograde on Friday, January 14. This means you’re already hearing from old friends and members of groups to which you belonged. This will be a more spiritual gentle year for you, with the exception of six months in the middle of the year when lucky Jupiter is in your sign. During that time, you’ll be out there flying your colours! “Look Ma, no hands!”
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is an upbeat week! You want to travel and do anything to expand your world. Grab every opportunity to learn and study. Think big! (Ideally, go to places you have travelled to before because of the influence of the pending Mercury retrograde) The year 2022 will be a very popular year for you. Everyone wants to see your face. Not only will you enjoy the friendship of others, you will be more involved with groups, clubs and organizations. You might even take on a leadership role. It’s an excellent year for you to think of your long-term goals as well as your spiritual values. From August onwards, you will work hard to boost your earnings because you will be spending big! Ka-ching!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
With fiery Mars opposite your sign this week, you will have to be patient with those who are closest to you because you might be easily annoyed with them. Fortunately, this is a positive, exciting week! You will find that you are focused more than usual on shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt. Things will work out favourably. Money from the past might come to you now. You might renegotiate old business with banks. Meanwhile, this is a fabulous year for you because you look like a winner to everyone! That’s because many of you will get promotions, kudos and acknowledgement for what you do. Success is definitely coming your way and you feel it. At last!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Oh my! Your focus on partnerships and close friendships is strong right now because ex-partners and old friends are back in your world! This can be a positive thing – or not. It might even create jealousy. (It figures.) Fortunately, you have the ability right now to see your closest relationships with more objectivity, which means you can see the role you play. Meanwhile, this week, you’re busting your buns at work to get stuff done. Bravo! This year, you will explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Many of you will also travel much more than usual. Bon voyage!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This week begins with feelings of inspiration and confidence. You’re up for whatever happens! You’re ready to work hard and play hard. Many of you are thinking of ex-partners more than usual because you’re in contact with them, or they are in your thoughts or your dreams. However, here are some hard facts. This year, Saturn is opposite your sign. (The last time this occurred was in the early 90s.) This can be discouraging because your energies are low. You might feel physically tired. You might feel old (even if you’re young). You might feel joint pain or have to deal with teeth problems. But hang in there! By 2023, you will rebound with joy, energy, and greater wisdom. You will also feel young again! That’s a promise.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a lighthearted, playful week, which is the perfect introduction to your new year (which will also be happier and more fun-loving). This week, you feel confident and ready to be yourself, without fear or apology. You will especially enjoy creative projects, sports events and playing with children. Admittedly, increased chaos and activity at home will exist, but you can handle this. Meanwhile, this year, you can improve your closest relationships with friends, spouses and partners. In fact, things are so good with those who are close to you –this is the best year for your sign to get married in over a decade!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Home and family are your strong focus this week. Many of you will be puttering and redecorating or tweaking your digs. (You like doing this. Better yet, you like telling other people how to do it.) You will also enjoy entertaining anyone in your bubble who can come to your home, perhaps family members? Perhaps a friend? You will be convincing and persuasive now because Mars is in your House of Communications. Meanwhile, this year, you will improve your health and you will improve your job. Count on it. In fact, many of you will travel more in matters related to your work. Children might be an increased responsibility but hey, that goes with the territory.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This week is a good time for you to think outside of the box and dare to embrace big goals! You will enjoy talking to others because you’re inspired and more confident than usual. You will enjoy the company of daily contacts and also, you will appreciate the beauty of your daily surroundings. (What a blessing!) You’re ready to work hard to boost your earnings. This is a good mindset because this year is actually a playful, fun-loving year for you! Children will be a joy. Vacations will delight. Romance will sizzle! (Be still my beating heart.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You have lots of energy as this year begins because fiery Mars is in your sign making you feel pumped, proactive and ready for action! In fact, physical exercise would be an excellent idea because you might need to release some pent-up steam within you. Meanwhile, this week, you’re focused on money, cash flow, earnings and moneymaking ideas. Money that you expect might be delayed. Meanwhile, this year, you will enjoy renovating or expanding or improving your home. Others will change residences to something better. The upshot is that home and family life will bring you greater joy. Some of you will expand your family through birth, adoption or marriage.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This year begins in a strong way for you because the Sun is in your sign, boosting your energy and giving you a chance to recharge your batteries for the coming year! How lucky are you! This is also an excellent week for you to buy wardrobe goodies, especially something that you have had your eye on for a while. It’s a positive time for you because you’ll find it easy to collaborate with others. This is not surprising because this year, you will be more optimistic and upbeat than usual. You will expect better things for yourself and be more hopeful for your future. It’s a good year to take courses or advance your training or study in any way. Relations with siblings will also improve. Sweet!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This is a great week because you feel inspired, confident and full of goodwill to others. You are motivated to think about your values and hence, your future plans. You might want to relax as much as possible this week, and enjoy lazy but playful times. Nevertheless, a competition or some kind of physical challenge with others, especially with friends and groups, might take place this week. In the bigger picture, many of you are going to get richer this year! Oh yes! This is well timed because you are setting out on a new journey (that actually began last year) of reinventing yourself. This means that increased earnings and wealth this year, as well as next year, will be timely.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You will be happy this week because things will flow smoothly and you will especially enjoy the company of others. (That’s nice.) You’ll be happy to see friends, and especially happy to play a leadership role in groups, clubs or organizations, whether this is via Zoom or in person. Jupiter is now in your sign for the first time since 2010, and this makes you feel fantastic! You feel more hopeful for the future. You feel more confident in the present. You are entering a new 12-year cycle of growth in your life when you will discover what you really are as an individual. This year you will attract people and resources who will help you. It’s a fortunate time! Lucky you!
