Dear Friends: Happy New Year!
Here are some astrological highlights for 2022: Venus turned Retrograde in Capricorn at the Full Moon on December 18, 2021. She stays in Rx most of January. Try to avoid cosmetic surgery right now. A brand new relationship may not last under the Rx motion. It is a time when relationships from the past return for resolution. Try to avoid big financial transactions and postpone marriage. Make yourself comfortable this month. Return to a favorite restaurant or bring back music from the past. Venus will turn direct at 11 degrees Capricorn on January 28, 2022.

Mercury will turn Retrograde on January 14, 2022 at 10 degrees Aquarius. This means this planet is very close to the Earth. It is a time to slow down and catch up on projects that have been stalled. It is not a time to buy new vehicle or major electronics. Contact friends and clients from the past to bring them into your life for the new year. Mercury will turn Direct on February 4, 2022 at 24 degrees Capricorn. In January 2023 Mercury again turns Retrograde in Capricorn coinciding with more confusion in Congress.

Mars is currently in the sign of Sagittarius. His energy drives us to explore, travel and celebrate the holidays. Mars will turn Retrograde in Gemini on October 30, 2022 and will remain in that position until January 12, 2023. It is a time of frustration, anger and warlike attitudes. We must be very careful of what we say and look before we leap rather than throwing ourselves into action. Election Day will be on November 8, 2022. Mars will be Retrograde at 25 Gemini with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 16 Taurus happening that evening. There could be mix-ups and rebellion around that time.

Jupiter will be in the sign of Pisces this month through May when he moves into Aries. He expands our spirituality and compassion and encourages us to give of ourselves. We may be less ambitious in a worldly sense. We attract good fortune when we are tender, artistic and giving. There may be a feeling that something in our lives is coming to an end. Jupiter moves back to Pisces during the holidays in 2022 with blessings and good will.

Saturn will be in Aquarius all year. The last time Saturn was in this sign was 1991 to 1993 and before that from 1962 to 1964. Of all the signs of the Zodiac Saturn in Aquarius is the most challenging. There is big social, economic and political change reflected in the spread of Covid 19 and its variants since December of 2020 when Saturn moved into Aquarius. It is a period when some of us feel isolated from our loved ones. It is a period when we need to find our own truth and chart our own paths.

Uranus will be in Taurus all year. Uranus will square Saturn at 18 degrees for the last time in October and November of this year. Since February 17, 2021, this configuration has been a time of restructuring, dissolving, activism, deception and endings. It is a time of being grounded and having faith in ourselves. Since Uranus arrived in Taurus in early 2019 The Bitcoin industry has been growing and becoming more prominent throughout the world. By the time Uranus ends its stay in Taurus in 2026 this form of money handling will be quite popular.

Neptune will be in Pisces all year. This planet circles the Sun every 164 years and spends about 14 years in each sign. Neptune rules shipping, trade, travel as well as chaos, confusion and deception. With the spread of Covid 19 and its variants we see Neptune in its challenging mode as there are major delays in trade and travel as well as flooding and water damage in many parts of the world. Neptune rules Storms. In April 2022 Jupiter trines Neptune in Pisces bringing greater spirituality and creativity to all of us.

Pluto is in Capricorn all year. This planet will remain in Capricorn until January 2024 when he moves into Aquarius. Governments and politics are going through great renovation around the world. In the USA chart Pluto will return to his natal position at 27 degrees of Capricorn 32 Minutes on February 20, 2022. It shows a milestone for the USA as there is instability in government, commerce, social change and more. This can be seen as a second revolution for the USA. The first revolution was around July 4, 1776 when Pluto was also at 27 degrees of Capricorn.
