At the beginning of 2022, I would like to scream to the world: “This is my year, Covid go away, hands off me, I have full spectrum of life to attend! “You might smile but I feel like this deeply in myself. Now, I need to start digging deeper to create my intention to set the focus and energy direction flow, so the Universe can hear my plea and join me in creation of My best year ever, 2022!
In astrology, the unique alignment of the planets and stars during this time of transition sets the tone for the year ahead. Each sign of the zodiac—and by extension, your personal birth chart—interacts with the current moment in time in a distinct way. As a new year season begins, create a small personal ritual to set and seal your intention for the coming year.
INTENTION SETTING AND YOGA
This is a moment to revisit and honor where you have been, reflect on what went well in 2021, or what could have gone better, and integrate newly gain wisdom and experience into life forward. One or two sentences, be specific and clear. Speak loudly, and express gratitude, release all to the Divine.
All Zodiac Family in the Year of 2022.
You’ll receive a wave of Jupiter-inspired expansion this year, Aries. It’s a time to recognize any fears as they come up when you take steps toward the life of your dreams—and to move through those fears with confidence. You know what’s best for you. Follow your intuition. Forge your authentic path this year.
Uranus, the planet of sudden changes, continues to transit Taurus this year and the Lunar North Node moves into Taurus as well. Align your intentions with practical steps to manifest your aspirations. How can you take your values and ideals and turn them into definite, skillful action? Set your intention for practical growth this year.
Gemini energy is ending an 18-month North Node transit, which means it’s time to recognize and celebrate all the ways you’ve grown, shifted, and adapted in that time—and what you’ve learned along the way. This year, apply past lessons to the present and set an intention to keep a record of your personal growth.
Cancer energy is at the end of a challenging Pluto opposition, so now is a great time to focus on pampering and caring for yourself. How can you add more beauty, joy, and resilience to your daily life? Consider the answer, and then set an intention—coupled with a practical plan—to regularly add these self-nurturing things to your life.
Leo, you’re in a position to align with your true leadership qualities in 2022. Now is the time to glow up by giving back—whether you donate old clothes, volunteer for a local charity, or otherwise serve others. Set an intention for generosity in the new year.
The new year begins with favorable energy for you, Virgo. Your energy would do well to spend time in nature. Spending time outdoors will help nurture your more mundane goals. Steep yourself in areas with flowing waters, greenery, and open skies.
Libras can often see how others are thinking, feeling, and behaving. As such, Libra energy is a gift to those around you. This year, set an intention to bring this back to yourself and schedule a little extra “you time.” About an hour each week should suffice. Whatever you like to do when you’re alone, set an intention to prioritize that throughout the year.
Scorpio energy is going to be trine Jupiter this year, which means it’s at a favorable angle, so set an intention to schedule ample time to be creative. Activities done for creativity’s sake tend to have no ulterior motives, no need for them to be done “right,” and no demands on how they turn out. By practicing the art of creativity, you give yourself permission to view yourself and your life as your own creative project. You are free and able to be molded into your vision.
Sagittarius has spent the last 18 months with the South Node of the moon traveling through its energy. This might have felt as if life was temporarily stalled as circumstances shifted and you had to deal with any pressing issues. Now is the time to refocus some energy on your own expansion and edification. Set an intention to do something to expand your mind, whether means taking a class, reading some excellent material, taking a trip, or something else entirely.
Capricorn, you’ve had a series of challenging transits over the last several years. Now is the time to realize how far you’ve come and how much you’ve overcome. For the new year, align your intention with the energy of gratitude, including for yourself. You might decide to begin or expand an existing gratitude practice, or consider finding a practical way to keep track as you continue to navigate life with a grateful heart.
The new year is the ideal time for you, Aquarius, to organize and build structures that will support you in the coming year and beyond. Saturn’s presence in Aquarius will help you find success, provided that your intention draws on organization and systematic process that will help you toward your desired goals. Ensure that each small step aligns with your bigger vision.
2022 is a powerful time for Pisces energy, with both Jupiter and Neptune—both rulers of Pisces—traveling through the sign. Set an intention to unabashedly move toward what you want and know you deserve and release any vices, beliefs, or inner obstacles that stand in your way. The more you align your daily reality with your broader vision, the better will come your way. Let yourself flow.
