Love and Relationships in 2022
What do the astrological trends forecast for love relationships in the year ahead? Read on for key astro-events in 2022.
Saturn in Aquarius in 2022
Friendship and community matters make headlines in 2022. Although social matters tend to dominate, we are in the position to take a more detached and honest approach to affairs of the heart.
Saturn in Aquarius can bring tests to friendships, but these test their foundations, and those with weak foundations are challenged to strengthen them. This year, Jupiter isn’t concurrently in the sign, and the rougher edges of this transit are more evident.
A serious approach to our friendships is a continuing theme this year. Saturn transiting the sign of casual relationships, acquaintances, and associates brings a mature and serious tone to these connections. Some may feel it as burdensome. Relationships may go through a sort of “road test” during this 2+ year cycle that started in 2020 and will end in March 2023.
Long-term compatibility and shared visions or friendships are factors we take into consideration more than usual.
Jupiter in Pisces in 2022
Jupiter spends more time in compassionate, spiritual Pisces this year–until May 10th, and then from October 28th-December 20th. We experienced this energy briefly last year.
During this transit, we have a stronger belief in a higher power. We are most able to attract luck and rich life experiences through our intuition, imagination, and compassion. Helping those in need boosts our own morale. We attract the best fortune when we are charitable, tender, devoted, compassionate, giving, and when we look out for the underdog. We are more idealistic and perhaps less ambitious in a worldly sense, more motivated to give than receive. Faith in the basic goodness of people can bring about positive circumstances or good “luck.”
We should watch for escapism, bending personal philosophies or morals to suit the situation, deception and self-deception, restlessness and vague discontent, and unwillingness to face problems or negative situations directly.
Jupiter in Aries in 2022
In truth, Jupiter shares its time in two signs in 2022: Pisces and Aries. Jupiter is in Aries…
- May 10-October 28, 2022, and
- December 20, 2022 to May 16, 2023.
Jupiter in assertive, outgoing Aries brings a general philosophy of life that emphasizes independence and individual freedom. Faith in ourselves can bring about positive circumstances or good “luck.”
Relationships can benefit from the general attitude that the past should be left behind us. Some of us can feel considerably more confident in our ability to be independent, and this can test relationships.
Uranus in Taurus in 2022
Uranus is once again in Taurus, and we’re completely redefining our views of money and belongings. We’re also “doing” comfort in brand new ways. It’s fun, but sometimes, the uncertainty throws us off-center. In February and July, especially, this energy is rewarding and working in our general favor. There is an open and accepting quality to our friendships and also with our sexuality.
Chiron in Aries in 2022
Chiron in Aries all year suggests that, in order to heal and grow, we need to work on self-confidence, body image, and our relationship with our independence. It’s certainly a me-oriented transit, but it’s a vital one if we want to bring our whole selves into a relationship.
When Jupiter meets Chiron in 2023, we’ll be in the ultimate shape for doing this work on ourselves. Until then, we’re learning and growing. In 2022, Chiron isn’t forming any significant relationships with the outer planets.
The North Node of the Moon in Taurus in 2022
The North Node of the Moon spends the year in Taurus, and we’d do very well for ourselves if we can work on improving our own self-worth and feelings of comfort in 2022. Getting ourselves in shape with money matters and personal belongings can also figure strongly.
Pluto in Capricorn in 2022
Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn and will stay there for years to come, slowly transforming our values on many levels. With regard to relationships, we are likely to see an increased attraction to mature partnering, status, and professionalism.
2022 is the Number 6
A feminine or yin influence on the year, the Number 6 favors building harmony. We aim to be more helpful, supportive, and sympathetic. We’re a little more inclined to serve and assist than we are to want to take the lead. Harmony, beauty, and service are keywords.
2022 is the Year of the Tiger
In Chinese Astrology, the period from February 3, 2022, to February 3, 2023, is represented by the Tiger. The year 2022 is the year of the Yang Black Water Tiger. [Note, the Chinese New Year is not always the same date as the beginning of the new zodiac sign year (start of Spring)–this year, the New Year is February 1, 2022.]
In order to understand this energy in terms of relationships, we’ll need to keep in mind that the Tiger is the third sign of the Chinese Zodiac. It is a courageous, authoritative, charismatic, initiating, competitive, dynamic, adventurous, and dramatic sign.
Ruling over the first month of spring, other themes associated with the Tiger are renewal, initiative, changefulness, and new beginnings.
There can be some fickleness and boredom with routine this year. The Year of the Tiger favors short-term, exciting romances, pleasure-seeking, love as a game of hunting and chasing, and variety in love. The Tiger is also honorable and quite honest and upfront, so we might see more fun-loving but honest expressions of affection this year–more people being upfront about what they are seeking in love and relationships.
Independence, playing “hard to get,” assertiveness, and bravery are generally viewed as more attractive this year.
Pigs, Goats/Sheep, Rats, Roosters, and Dogs may enjoy the most “success” in love this year.
Love and romance may be so-so, average, or status quo for Rabbits, Dragons, Oxen, Horses, Snakes, and Tigers. The love forecast for Monkeys is less favorable overall.
Approaching a new love interest this year is best done with confidence and honesty.
Mars retrograde in Gemini in 2022
Mars retrogrades in the sign of Gemini from October 20th, 2022, forward, bringing about a need to rethink or reassess our energy levels, motivation, and desires.
Mars is retrograde from October 20th, 2022, to January 12, 2023. It’s not the best energy for our love relationships, at least in an immediate sense. Ultimately, we are learning how to better assert ourselves and our needs/wants, so whatever we do learn during that period can be used to strengthen our relationships. However, it can be a confusing time for those already experiencing uncertainty in their love lives, because it brings more confusion and mixed signals!
With Mars retrograde in Gemini, there can be some stalling of intellectual and mental initiatives. Health issues may be a factor (especially in areas ruled by Gemini, including the lungs), and accidents a higher possibility throughout the Mars retrograde period.
In love, it’s words used as weapons that we should watch for the most. These can be regrettable.
Venus retrograde in Capricorn in 2022
Venus retrogrades in the sign of Capricorn near the end of the year, from December 19th, 2021, forward, bringing about a need to rethink or reassess our personal relationships. Past lovers may reappear and some relationships may end. Commitment or business/practical problems can be a hot topic.
Old friends and lovers may re-appear, perhaps complicating current relationships. We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or predestined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period of time. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored just for now.
Those who have Capricorn strong in their charts may be more introspective, distant, or hard to reach during this cycle. They may not be in a very favorable light just for the time being. It’s not the best period for entering into a new relationship, because our sensors when it comes to love are not up to par.
Note that Venus retrograded in the sign of Capricorn 8 years before this date (from December 21, 2013, to January 31, 2014), and similar themes can re-emerge, if relevant.
Love in 2022 in General
We have a real mix of energies this year with outer planets spread between all four elements and three modes. This suggests that opportunities and challenges come more equally to the signs. Nevertheless, some signs do stand out from the pack. The signs of Leo, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio have the most direct influences on their relationship sectors.
Aries and Taurus tend to be more focused on their independence or autonomy at this time, similar to last year. They’re going through considerable growth in their personalities, and will more often need some space to sort things through. On the other hand, Libras and Scorpios may more often feel at the mercy of their relationships.
