2022: Aries Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
Note: This is where the summary or overview of the year ahead resides; more details are below.
The year 2022 brings a strong focus on your inner world, dear Aries, and on embracing your personality and independence. Events occurring now expand your innate compassion, warmth, or inner eye. Your perspective or personal philosophy is also going through changes. You might do some special studies on your own this year. There can be hidden or elusive elements to your communications, interests, and studies.
Later in the year, mostly from May to October, your personality, image, body image, and self-confidence expand to new levels with Jupiter in your sign. You are seeing whole new possibilities, and your vision of life is panoramic.
In 2022, you enjoy an increasing feeling of hope, optimism, and spiritual protection. Your intuition heightens to possibly even uncanny levels. Pluto continues to apply pressure, having you question whether the career path you’re travelling is in fact a reflection of the true you. However, you’re really coming into your own, making and shaping things in ways that are exciting. You’re a little bolder with pursuing what you want or feel you’re worth.
While Mars is retrograde later in the year, you are not as sure of yourself and uncharacteristically second-guessing your decisions. Rules and plans seem to be changing. Roadblocks and delays are irritating, but they could be the key to figuring out true desires, especially related to personal interests, communicating, connecting, and getting around.

Key Events in 2022 for Aries:
Outer Planet Transits:
Pluto trine True North Node in February. This transit intensifies our passion to make a difference, a change, or connection. We can feel strongly connected to people or groups at this time.
For you, Aries, this is a period of a stronger sense of mission regarding your work, finances, talents, and practical affairs. You can be a leader and influencer. Transforming your reputation can figure strongly.
Jupiter sextile Uranus and semi-square Pluto in February. With these aspects, changes and innovations are exciting. We’re open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of our willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. We’re less tolerant of repetition and routine, and we’re resistant to obligations or limits to our self-expression. Good luck or money can happen unexpectedly, appearing in the nick of time.
For Aries, this is a potentially brilliant period for making the most of what you have, improving your money situation, and utilizing your natural talents in creative and perhaps profitable ways. Opportunities can emerge unexpectedly, or coincidences happen that push you along a new brainwave that’s exciting. You could discover a hidden resource, or a liberation from a matter from the past that’s been dragging you down can figure strongly. Intuition and creative flashes can be notable.
As well, getting a handle on your personal belongings or money matters can be freeing, boosting your optimism and spirit.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. With this fabulous alignment, idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface. Themes now are making connections with others of a different background, a spirit of altruism and generosity, widening our minds through unusual or different experiences, expanded faith, and a feeling that anything is possible if we believe in it. We more easily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the better good.
Everyday, ordinary life doesn’t satisfy, as we hunger for a more idealistic life. This can certainly lead to disappointment or strong feelings of discontent and restlessness. We may need a reality check in order to keep our expectations realistic. However, it’s a period of greater compassion–when our guiding principle is to trust in people or the universe.
For Aries, there can be an increasing feeling of spiritual protection, spirituality, heightened intuition, and understanding. Your dreaming world is active, and your faith in the unknown strengthens. Rewards for past good deeds or projects can emerge now.
Jupiter sextile Pluto in early May. We’re discovering our ambitions and motivations, and it’s an enjoyable, productive experience. It’s a time when we want to improve, grow, and bring something to the next level. As we connect with our hidden talents or desires, we begin to embrace new directions or pursuits.
For Aries, your intuition, compassion, or work you did in the past can benefit your current career or reputation. You can get a real sense that if you shine some light on areas of your life that you’ve kept hidden or that have left you feeling guilty, you’ll work more wholeheartedly and feel stronger on a professional level.
Uranus conjunct True North Node in July. With this transit, we attract people or lessons into our lives that encourage us to detach from traditions or conventions that are keeping us from growing. It’s a good time to make pivotal friendships or group connections. We’re learning to be more self-sufficient while concerning ourselves with bettering the world around us.
Other influences and minor transits:
Venus is retrograde from December 19th. Venus is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn from December 19th, 2021, to January 29, 2022.
For all, love, finance, and pleasure matters are not straightforward during this period–it’s a time to review our attitudes, feelings, and satisfaction levels rather than forge ahead boldly into new love relationships or financial projects. It may be best to avoid any major decisions about love (and finances) during this cycle. Venus is your partnership ruler, so that this period can affect your relationships more than most.
Still, this cycle occurs in your sector of career and reputation, and you could be reviewing the pleasure factor or your satisfaction levels with your long-term goals, life path, status, or career. There can be some backing up and changes of heart at this time.
The Sun aligns with Jupiter in Pisces and Venus aligns with Mars in Aquarius on March 5-7. It’s a wildly creative and optimistic time. We’re generous with our time and energy, and we can be quite reactive and affectionate, perhaps bolder than usual as we wish to do something special.
For you, Aries, this can be a time of a special or pleasant escape or diversion. It can be an opportunity period for your private life. A release from a burden can figure strongly. The beginning sparks of a budding new friendship is possible now.
Mars is retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, in the sign of Gemini (pre-retrograde shadow begins September 3). We can feel stuck on past relationships or situations, finding it difficult to move ahead. Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations are significant in your studies, daily affairs, communication, or transportation. There can be weighty issues and delays to manage now. A project or course of study can feel uninspiring.
Challenges with self-expression, pushing/selling your ideas, or with neighbors and siblings may occur now. Social interactions can be a little strained, as you may feel the need to hold back or there is a lack of usual spontaneity in your communications. There can be frustration with daily routines. It’s time to rethink, revise, and reorganize your plans. Backtracking is a good idea. In fact, this is a strong time for making important edits of work already in progress.

The horoscope on this page, Aries Yearly, shows the trends and predictions for the year in detail. Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Aries, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
There are some pleasant developments for you this year, dear Aries. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that by understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease, you can make the most of these trends by seeking and pursuing the opportunities and managing the challenges.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Aries:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging at times),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in a direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
Expansion, Growth, Hope, Improvement, Spirit
Saturn=Restriction, Structure, Simplicity, Realism
Uranus=Innovation, Excitement, Unrest, Rebellion, Change
Neptune=Inspiration, Spirit, Confusion, Dissolution, Enlightenment
Pluto=Upheaval, Transformation, Rebirth, Unearthing, Excavation, Power
Chiron=Vulnerability, Wisdom, Healing, Wholeness, Non-conformity
North Node=Life Lesson, Growth, Improvement, Challenge
As is evident in the above chart, there are far more harmonious and neutral influences for Aries than there are challenging ones in 2022, suggesting a period of fewer changes and disruptions than there were in some previous years. Support and harmony or status quo areas are in stronger focus. While Pluto continues to challenge you, you’re finding good outlets for expressing and enjoying yourself.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Saturn in harmony with your sign again in 2022 is helpful and stabilizing. It’s also suggestive of a strong support system.
While Chiron in your sign is certainly easier than Chiron clashing with Aries, it remains a strong influence and can, at times, bring its own brand of pressure. However, it’s an influence that encourages healing, growing, improving, learning, and humbling yourself to the whole process. You’re learning to take much better care of yourself on all levels–body, mind, and spirit.
Jupiter heads into your sign this year, dear Aries! This transit opens you up–you feel lighter and freer. Jupiter is in Aries for half of 2022. While it will continue to develop in 2023, this transit is joyful and liberating.
Areas of greatest change or occasional disruption tend to be with money, reputation, and career. Despite some ups and downs, this year is powerful for developing your intuition, personal development, and increased confidence. Go big in these areas, while respecting your limits!
