As we go
into 2022, it seems like we are all looking for something exciting to look
forward to. Although astrological transits do not cause events, they reflect
events that are destined to take place in the world.
Our job, as
enlightened human beings, is to bring out the positive side of the astrological
events we will experience, and minimize the destructive and limiting side of
them, even though they seem to happen suddenly and inevitably.
the retrogrades, eclipses, nodal shifts, and several planetary aspects in the
year ahead that will give us the opportunity to practice doing exactly these
What Do Retrogrades Mean?
Retrograde periods signal a time when planets appear to be moving in the reverse direction. They create snarls, stagnancy, indecision, and obstacles at their worst. It is important to realize that they are priceless opportunities to “go back” and revise, revamp, and revisit people, places, and things with which we have unfinished business. Used wisely, they are a wonderful way to make everything better.
energy of a planet, its sign, and its placement in your natal chart reveals
where and how you can make these occurrences work in your favor.
- Venus: Dec. 19,’21-Jan. 29,’22 (Capricorn). Another chance at love! Especially, for Capricorns, and for Taurus and Virgo, which aspect this transit by trine.
- Mars: Oct. 30, ‘22-Jan. 12, ‘23 (Gemini). Hold back on projects and rework strategies and goals. All Air signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, will react to this retrograde most strongly.
- Jupiter: July 28, ’22- Oct. 23,’22 (Aries back into Pisces). Cash in on blessings that stayed “in the bank.” Get ready to clean up, Aries and Pisces!
- Saturn: Jan. 4, ’22- Oct. 23, ’22 (Aquarius). A time to tighten up procedures and discipline. Let’s face it, Saturn works on all of us. The Saturn ruled signs, Capricorn and Aquarius, will have the easiest time with this because it’s part of their soul signature to have self-discipline.

communications, written or spoken, professional or personal, will be revisited
and revised. They will be expressed through the key-note energies of each sign
that they take place in.
It is good
to find out from an astrologer which houses these signs rule in your natal
chart. This gives you the advantage of knowing where and how communications
need to be improved.

- Sept. 10-Oct. 2 (Libra/Virgo)
- Dec. 29-Jan. 18,’ 23 (Capricorn)
- Uranus: Begins 2022 in retrograde until Jan. 18, then retrogrades again Aug. 24-end of 2022 (Taurus). Environmental and economic shake-ups will result in something better. Taurus, Scorpio, and those signs squaring Taurus and Scorpio will feel the inevitable change!
- Neptune: June 28-Dec. 4, ‘22 (Pisces). Our dreams and illusions are examined and reformed. Water signs especially will dream their most realistic and beautiful dreams.
- Pluto: Apr. 29-Oct. 8 (Capricorn). Power structures will be revised, or crumble. Be cagey when dealing with authority. They may become draconian.

beneficial for all signs! They move energy up and forward.
