A Light is Shining at the End of the Tunnel in 2022!
Although in some respects 2022 is looking ‘more normal’ than where we’ve been in recent years, sometimes we may feel as if time is speeding up, and we’re dealing with more stuff than usual!
We still have the ‘normal’ challenges and growth spurts to deal with, but the light of insight and awareness shines through to guide us, especially when planets are retrograde as we can become more self-reflective.
The Eight Planetary Retrogrades
Mercury Retrograde ( 14/1/22 - 3/2/22, 10/5/22-3/6/22, 9/9/22-2/10/22, 29/12/22-18/1/23 )
Mighty Mercury rules over luck, travel, divination, communications, commerce, trickery, and transactions. When Mercury goes retrograde, misunderstandings and miscommunications can reign supreme. Cognition is also affected, so you may feel confused and fuzzy-headed with your head in the clouds, especially if you are an Air sign – Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius.
Venus Retrograde ( 19/12/21 - 29/1/22 )
Starts at: 26° Capricorn 29’ | Ends at: 11° Capricorn 5’
Venus is the planet of love, relationships, beauty, the arts, cooperation, and money, and she changes sign every month or so. Venus Retrograde in Capricorn brings emotional and physical transformation… like it or not! Although Venus loves peace and harmony, if you’ve been holding anything back, she won’t be able to put up with any unfairness in a given situation.
Mars Retrograde ( 30/10/22 - 12/1/23 )
Starts at: 25° Gemini 37′ Rx | Ends at: 08° Gemini 08′
Mars is the planet of war, aggression, force, action, energy, and masculinity. He changes sign every six to seven weeks or so. Mars also goes retrograde every two years for about 2-2/12 months. And in 2022, Mars will be retrograde from 30th October 2021 to 12th January 2023, in Gemini. There could be arguments and forceful communications more so than usual during this time.
Jupiter Retrograde ( 28/7/22 - 23/11/22 )
Starts at: 8° Aries 43′ Rx | Ends at: 28° Pisces 48’D
Jupiter will be retrograding the fiery sign of Aries and moving back into watery Pisces in 2022. He is the planet of expansion, growth, knowledge, adventure, and good luck. Jupiter turns retrograde every 9 months for about 4 months. During this time, you may feel less ambitious and less expansive. But it’s a great time to take control and overcome negative habits and behaviours that no longer serve your highest good.
Saturn Retrograde ( 4/6/22 - 22/10/22 )
Starts at: 25° Aquarius 15′ Rx | Ends at: 18° Aquarius 35’D
Saturn is the planet of chronological time, governments, judicial systems, employment, those economically disadvantaged, and natural resources, including agriculture. Saturn is also ‘Lord of Karma’… he really is not to be trifled with. To stay on his good side, everything must be above board, organised, structured, and properly legal.
Uranus Retrograde ( 19/8/21 - 18/1/22, 24/8/22 - 22/1/23 )
Starts at: 14° Taurus 48’ | Ends at: 10°Taurus 49’ and Starts at: 18° Taurus 55′ Rx | Ends at 14°Taurus 56′D
Uranus continues his journey through Earthy Taurus and will be retrograding, giving both excitement and turbulence. On an inner level, there is a great deal of psychological and spiritual transformation. Uranus spends approximately 5 months per year in retrograde. Be patient. It’s probably not the best time to act, but it is a good time to plan your future.
Neptune Retrograde ( 27/6/22 - 3/12/22 )
Starts at: 25° Pisces 27′ Rx | Ends at: 22° Pisces 39′
Neptune will be retrograding in the changeable watery sign of Pisces enhancing both spirituality and delusions. On an inner level, there is a great deal of psychological and spiritual transformation. When she’s retrograde, delusions and illusion may occur more often than usual. Logical thinking may be particularly difficult, and judgement doesn’t seem as clear cut as usual.
Pluto Retrograde ( 29/4/22 - 8/10/22 )
Starts at: 28° Capricorn 36′ Rx | Ends at: 26° Capricorn 07′
Pluto continues to retrograde in the stable Earthy sign of Capricorn. Pluto rules over profound transformation, death, and rebirth, and is often a time of major transformation in life. Spiritual wounds may surface from the past that need to be understood and healed. We could experience extreme emotions, including fears we can’t explain or express. Karma and fate are key themes now.
Solar and Lunar Eclipses 2022
All eclipses represent transformation and 2022 has four eclipses which is fairly normal. Solar Eclipses represent male aspects whilst Lunar Eclipses represent feminine energies. Eclipses force us to confront our own shadow nature or the dark side of our personal subconscious. They are also a sign from the Universe that change will soon visit us, which can be unpredictable and unexpected.
