We are cruising into 2022 and we thought we must ask the Tarot for a sneak peek. This week’s readings are about what each Zodiac can expect in the New Year and pro-tips on how to make the most of it.
Lots of action and lots of money – 2022 is full of potential for each one of us to live our best life. Heartbreaks and disappointments in our closest relationships can be expected by some. However we are all being cautioned to be very aware of what we are asking for. Consciously choose all that you want to experience in the coming year because each desire comes with it’s own story that you will have to live in real time.
Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
Heartbreaks or then healing from one is on the cards as the new year rolls in. The year is full of potential and it might be wise to recognise disappointments from an actual heartbreak. Keep your expectations real and watch yourself for any signs of entitlement or a “poor me” syndrome.
The year will be great for creative Capricorns as there will be many opportunities to express your ideas and experience a sense of acceptance and even appreciation. Remember to take breaks, to hit pause for you will need to realign your perspective every now and then. Be careful not to get too self-absorbed only to end up creating unwanted as well as unwarranted drama in your life.
Financial goals may make you move to a new country, city or job. If you are planning to migrate or change jobs, this year is holding space for that journey. Some Capricorns may also have to cut losses and close their existing businesses. However, the window for the next venture has already opened and in the coming year the door will be wide open too.
Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
Aquarians will have to evolve in 2022. Change will strike hard and fast. Overnight life will no longer seem like what it does right now. Your current attitude towards life or situations or certain people will not fly anymore. You will have to rejig your entire way of thinking and reacting. This coming year is a good year to invest in a therapist, life coach or mentor. Healing and rebuilding is your only way forward.
Success and financial abundance are on the cards too for this air sign. You will exude confidence and clearly be the one in charge. Some will achieve a big career goal, maybe even a designation of authority will be printed on your visiting card in 2022.
Love will give Aquarians many reasons to celebrate. From finding the one to tying the knot, depending where you are on this path to everlasting love, your heart will have many reasons to sing duets this coming year.
Pisces: February 19 – March 20
2022 will need you to leave the past behind and live life with an open heart as if everything is brand new. Gather up the wisdom you’ve gained and stubbornly look forward. Nostalgia is a Pisceans favourite song and there can be an aversion to change. However, to make the most of this coming year your childlike enthusiasm will be your superpower.
Be careful at work as office politics will put you in a tight spot more than once. Avoid sharing your plans with too many people. Deception lies ahead. Financial growth can be expected. In fact some may even achieve a big financial milestone, a long-held material aspiration.
The energy for love and romance is abundant in this coming year. Pisceans who are married or in a long-standing relationship will experience a new wave of romance in their relationship. Togetherness and fulfillment will be the abundance you can tap into. Single Pisceans can find love and commitment if they so desire. Those who wish to explore the dating space will have a busy social calendar.
Aries: March 21 – April 20
Your most authentic self is waiting for you to rise up and embrace your magic. The new year ahead will push you into the limelight and the world will acknowledge and celebrate you.
Money will flow in a balanced rhythm. Generosity will be rewarded as the Universe will ensure you prosper. Realign your relationship with money if it currently hinges on faulty beliefs. Think about investing appropriately this year as you come to realise what is the role money is meant to play in your life.
For many Arians love has taken a backseat up until now thanks to responsibilities and obligations. This will change in 2022 if you allow it to. Those who are single must put themselves out there boldly and explore without expectations. Those in relationships will hit a rough patch as the weight of life and duties will make them take love for granted.
2022 is a year of pure potential if Arians choose to transform. Inner work will be demanded of them and those who respond to this call will see the life of their dreams manifest.
Taurus: April 21 – May 21
A year of completion and dreams coming true lies ahead. Marriage is on the cards for some while completion of a material goal like buying a home will be a reality for others. It’s a good idea to think about what you want to tick off your list in 2022 and take stock of how close to or far from the finish line you are.
Those who have been feeling anxious about work and the possibility of success, need focus on action and moving forward. Living in your head is the mistake you have been making and one you need to change immediately. If you take two steps with clarity and conviction, the Universe will reveal the path for the next five and bestow you with all the resources you will need along the way. If you continue to dance the tango with your thoughts, the Universe will hurl you down the path to success whether you feel ready or not. Either way progress is the only choice and you need to choose whether you’re going to enjoy the process or make it a bumpy ride.
The cup of love is overflowing for the bulls. Ladies, keep an eye out for a man who will make his intentions clear from the start and will clearly be one who knows how to take charge of things. The men will meet a spirit guide in the form of lady love. Listen to what she says as she knows things about your life ahead that only your soul knows.
Gemini: May 22 – June 21
Change is coming whether you like it or not. Embrace the uncertainty that lies ahead and be prepared to improvise.

Leave room for the Universe to guide you to the shortcuts and profitable detours. Finances will be stable and this coming year will be about emotional growth in your material space too.
Open your eyes and your heart to love. Delete the heartbroken victim narratives that are guiding your choices currently. You don’t need to be saved. 2022 will be full of interesting moments irrespective of whether you are single, in a relationship or married. Change the way you look at your love life and you will see your life transform.

Financial abundance is available to you this coming year. Act in accordance ensuring you use your resources optimally.
In your love life, it will seem like you’ve achieved a long term goal or manifested a long held desire.

Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21
Be mindful and compassionate this coming year. While 2022 has a lot to offer, Sagittarians are being nudged to find the balance in life.
