Greetings cosmic truth seekers! Welcome to your 2022 astrological forecast. This year spotlights a possible correction in the stock market or in finances overall, and a possible change in healthcare, with a focus on spiritual wellness. The financial shift is triggered by the eclipses in Taurus and Scorpio as well as Uranus and the north node of the moon transiting in sign of Taurus. While last year’s focus on mental health was paramount, this year we will incorporate a more compassionate approach in dealing with all earthly matters triggered by both optimistic Jupiter and inspirational Neptune meeting up in Pisces during the first half of this year. The following is a general forecast for all 12 rising signs followed by the lunar cycles. I wish you well during your journey this year.
The first half of this year spotlights career movement or changes. This is triggered by Mercury, Venus and Mars all making a pit stop through the sign of Capricorn which impacts your career house. Pluto, the planet of transformation is also making its presence known in this area of your chart. These combined energies will bring added responsibilities or changes that will help you express your unique skill set and talents. Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and luck makes a significant stop in your sign from May to October foretelling blessings that may present themselves during these months and again during the first half of 2023.
This year will be spotlighted more so because of the lunar eclipses and the north node of the moon affecting your sign in 2022-2023. This year will bring beginnings and endings in your life.
