Looking for the hidden trap
2022 is a strange year because, even though the majority of the planetary events do not directly affect you, you will be called upon to expose yourself to the public and prove what you are capable of during the second half of the year. Jupiter is in Pisces, almost throughout the year, and you have the opportunity to make a great leap forward in your career and see your labour pay off following a two-year-period when you struggled for it. Perhaps this means that you move into a new professional environment, that you make the next step in your existing job, or that you find an opportunity to be integrated in an environment that helps you to feel comfortable in your own skin. On the other side, the eclipses in the axis of Taurus/Scorpio will be an obstacle to your next steps mainly if you focus on the financial area. You will be called upon to decide whether you choose a job based on remuneration or pleasure. You must prove you are physically and mentally apt for everything you have taken on or you plan. You must look after yourself and find harmony between physical exercise and daily activities. Finally, you must be mentally alert as from August onwards because, with Mars in your sign who even goes retrograde on October, 30, you are called upon to be at the helm of efforts with a goal and a plan. Thus you cannot leave without actual reason and arguments.
Jupiter in Pisces from the beginning of the year until May, 10, as well as between October, 28 and December, 20, will be an opportunity to make important steps in the professional or domestic field. Jupiter favours the beginning of new professional challenges; the introduction to a new professional environment in which you are called upon to participate equally; and the creation of links with people with whom you share a common way of thinking and emotional perception. You could put your personal gain on the back burner and try to be one with the rest of the team in your effort to feel inner fulfilment through the overall giving and the result of the specific action. Perhaps your family grows and you feel emotionally complete since there are people in your life who need your presence and contribution. You acknowledge that you take on a different role which could entail guidance. Jupiter in Pisces could also cloud your judgement and carry you away in irrational, but instinctual, decisions and actions. You have the opportunity to go deep on the emotional level but you will also realise that you lost touch with reason. This will frighten you and make you react to invitations to participate in groups and teams that focus on emotional intelligence.
The trial period of Jupiter in Aries between May, 10 and October, 28 signals the opportunity to reinvent your personality and lead groups in need of guidance. Perhaps you decide to reorganise the team you are a member of or decide to invest time in your friends and leave professional issues by the wayside.
Saturn in Aquarius throughout 2022 will be a good opportunity to make sure you make small but essential steps in changing your way of thinking. Perhaps you are about to graduate or you try to finish your studies and this demands time and labour on your behalf. Perhaps you have decided to take up complementary studies that will be your stepping stone toward a career change since you try to escape from a professional environment that has led to an impasse. At the same time, perhaps you have decided to study the philosophy of societies which have managed to evolve as time goes by and to focus on their achievements when they offered vision to people and not when they imposed punishments and penalties.
On a practical level, Saturn in Aquarius could be the reason why you decide to settle unfinished legal business. Perhaps you are about to compromise with the opposite side and a litigation comes to a close in a more favourable way in comparison to what it seemed like some years ago. Perhaps you decide to make a career change since you wish to get in touch with foreigners so as to find ways out that you have not managed to explore because you are chained to a familiar environment.
The first eclipse of the year is a Solar one that takes place on April, 30 at 10 degrees Taurus in conjunction with Uranus. It seems to disturb your routine. You must beware of financial issues and be prepared for others’ unexpected demands. Try and gain time and do not hurry to give answers or to commit to actions that will confuse you even more in the future. Perhaps you screen out your professional environment and you must confront the real personality of some people in your circle. Thus you must be more careful than you have thought you should be until today. The Lunar eclipse on May, 16 at 25 degrees Scorpio in square with Saturn in Aquarius seems to activate within the sense of what is legal and fair. Perhaps you find it hard to fit in in a stifling routine but you also need to be patient so as to stand work conditions that could lead you to your next career step. In addition, you must look after your health and deal with something with potential side-effects that could pop up towards the end of the year. Thus you might turn to a new way of coping with your physical and mental health and introduce new habits to your life to that end.
The second set of eclipses begins with the Solar eclipse on October, 25 at 2 degrees Scorpio in conjunction with Venus and in quincunx with Jupiter in Aries. You must focus on your routine and make sure you find your balance in relationships which seem to go through a rough patch. Ego is a bad advisor, at the current juncture, since you might lose people you are not ready to alienate. On the other side, you screen out your surroundings and you seek to define your life based on your personal needs. Perhaps this means that you find it hard to keep on working in the usual way and that it is time you were bold about cutting the painter with your familiar past since you do not want it to be your present too. The Lunar eclipse on November, 8 at 6 degrees Taurus in conjunction with Uranus, in opposition to Mercury and Venus in Scorpio, and in square with Saturn in Aquarius seems to cast a shadow over your daily life. Perhaps you find it hard to respond to a routine which impacts on your health with respective consequences. Look after yourself and try to focus on areas in which you should really participate. Perhaps you realise that you must change your lifestyle and that you cannot keep on operating according to your old self since you have changed and you cannot overlook time.
The North Node enters Taurus and the South Node enters Scorpio respectively on January, 18. It is a period of almost one and a half year when your health and work routine will be in your focus. On the one side, you are obliged to cope with yourself and look after your physical health starting off with your nutrition. You had better change some existing habits and try to bring harmony in your daily life through your nutritional habits. Perhaps you avoid specific categories of food and add elements to your diet which you avoided before since you are decided to look after your weight. Perhaps you want to be brave about changing your life and leave a life pattern which was based on the material world by the wayside. You have decided to focus on your inner world. It is not that easy because your routine consumes a great deal of your time and you cannot cut back.
On a practical level, you had better be careful with your associations at work and make sure you decipher your colleagues before you lay your cards on the table. Perhaps some of them are double-faced and they can easily betray you so keep your secrets to yourself as it is not the right time to share them. If you are under pressure due to unemployment or because your existing work environment is despicable, ask yourself what your inclination is and when you forgot to integrate it into your life. Perhaps you realise that you must change career; you must dare to realise dreams you have buried; or you decide to finish a professional chapter that gives you material security but overlooks your need for peace of mind.
