After a long year under its reign, we’re ready to leave the White Metal Ox in the dust! Ruled by tradition, the Ox is all work and no play, sweeping its emotions under the rug to focus on the next task on its never-ending to-do list. On February 1st, the Black Water Tiger takes over, bringing new adventures, creativity and passion into 2022.
In Chinese astrology, the tiger reflects courage, optimism and justice. These daring leaders are unafraid to carve a new path and pursue their greatest passions. Under the influence of the water element, this year’s tiger embraces its emotions, valuing family, friendship and love. This year signals a fresh start, urging us to reflect on our past and move towards a new and brighter future.Read More »

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
You’ve spent 2021 playing by the rules, but the game is about to change! The competitive tiger is a welcome change, helping you regain the lead and excel in your career. However, the tiger’s independence might make you feel a little anti-social early in the year, as you lay low and plan your next move.
Once Venus enters your sign in the spring, your social life will blast off. Whether you’re pursuing a long-term relationship or just a quick fling, red-hot passions will lead you in an unexpected direction. As you dive headfirst into a new connection, don’t forget those who have supported you along the way. Your greatest growth will come with help from those who know you best.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Everything has started to feel a little too routine. Although you’re ready for a change, it’s not clear when, or how, it will happen. This year provides you with all the opportunities you’ll need to make the path clear. For you, 2022 is all about personal growth and self-love.
Although romance is in your future, it may develop slowly as you shift your focus inward. Even your relationships are subject to change as you embrace your worth and move away from friends (or lovers) that try to hold you back. Your freedom and confidence will also pay off when it comes to boosting your career and finances.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
There’s nothing about change that phases you, but it may be hard to make up your mind for long! This year will be full of new energy and inspiration, helping you tackle new challenges at work and in your personal life. With so many opportunities arising, the key to success is to stay focused on your long-term plan and learn to say “no” to anything that will distract you from your ultimate goal.
Although you’ll be running at full speed, 2022 brings you clarity when it comes to your relationships. There’s no time for drama, allowing friendships and romantic partnerships to grow in a healthy direction, bringing stability to your personal life.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
This new year is all about approaching your relationships differently. Things will be running more smoothly, giving you the space and patience to help those around you become more self-sufficient. With more freedom, your future is filled with fun, self-indulgence and upward movement in your career.
2022 is a great year for your love life, whether finally finding that special someone or falling back into the “newlywed” phase with a current partner. You’re ready for more, putting old issues to rest and engaging in new activities with friends and family. Switching up your routine and getting a new perspective gives you everything you need to live your life to the fullest.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Starting the year with a burst of energy, you’re eager to get down to business! However, the world’s not ready for you yet. The beginning of 2022 may be frustrating, moving slower than you’d like. There are lessons you need to learn as you move through a year of twists and turns.
Although things may not turn out the way you initially expected, don’t give up! This year is all about the journey and growth with changes in all areas of your life leading in new, positive directions. Stick it out and you’ll experience groundbreaking success in your personal, career and romantic goals by the time the year wraps up.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
Starting off the year, you’ll have to make some tough decisions. Coming face to face with some hidden truths may result in a few tears but you’ll get the answers you need to build healthier relationships. As painful as it may be, following your heart will be well worth it later in the year.
Come summertime, the hard part will be over, leaving you open to travel and let loose! In your professional life, anything is possible. Seize those networking opportunities and let your new partnerships launch you to the next level!
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
Things are going pretty easy for you in the new year. Although you could take your foot off the gas and just glide through 2022, don’t let yourself get too comfortable! Use this time to take a step back and reconsider what you really want in life – it’s a great year for career changes, moving to a new location or even heading back to school.
During the first half of the year, you’ll be on a creative and emotional high. This is the time to tap into your intuition and influence others around you, especially at work. All of this energy funnels into your relationships during the summer, increasing your chances at love, then into career success late in the year.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
With Pluto on its return, the universe is sending you some intense energy. This puts your romantic relationships into overdrive. Not only are you feeling more passionate but you’re craving deeper connections and creative ways to express your feelings.
In all things in life, whether relationships, work or personal projects, you may be feeling weighed down as the year begins. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! Take initiative early and fight hard for what you want – you’ll get what you want (and deserve!) by the end of the year.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
This is the year you’ll feel the most grounded. In the winter, you’ll get some long-awaited answers that will help you gain closure, freeing you to move beyond old wounds. It’s time to build stability through routine and self-love, setting you on a path of positivity as you head into the summer months.
As the weather warms, take every opportunity to get outside and travel! Now that you’ve squashed your inner demons, you’ll be able to soak up all the world has to offer. Relationships are the main focus this year so expect your social circle to increase, giving you new friends (or family members) to share in your adventures.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
You’re so close! 2022 will bring you to new heights in your career, leading you to the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for. Starting the year off with a win, you’re already starting to think bigger when it comes to your personal and career goals.
This is the start of a whole transformation, especially when it comes to your creative hobbies and passions. Through artistic self-expression, you’ll find the ability to channel your true self and connect on a new level with the people in your life or through social media. Don’t be afraid to let loose and have fun!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Don’t wait for things to happen, jump in the ring and take a chance! The new year brings an opportunity for you to turn a new leaf, breaking old habits and making positive changes. This may be challenging, as familiar patterns, people or situations may be tempting you to revert to a stage in your life that you’re ready to leave behind.
You may not be as focused on your career, prompting you to make a big change. This offers an opportunity to pursue a new field or learn skills that will lead you in a new professional direction. 2022 is a year to regain your power – know your worth and chase your dreams!
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Coming out of the winter months, you may find yourself feeling a little lost. For you, finding yourself lies in your creative and spiritual endeavors. Expressing yourself through artistic outlets will help you regain your footing, whether by redesigning your personal space or traveling outside your comfort zone.
The upcoming year is all about saying yes to new opportunities. As you embark on a journey of self-exploration, keeping your options open will lead to inspiration in the places you least expect.
