It’s been a tough couple of years, but don’t despair! In 2022, the stars are aligned to give everyone a chance to heal. It’s been a long time coming, and this year, the universe wants you to rest, recover, and receive the good stuff you’ve been wishing and waiting for. What gifts will 2022 have in store for you in love, at work, and in friendship? Ahead, we break it down by zodiac sign so you can set your New Year’s intentions early and get the most out of this magical year.

Aries

You’ve never been afraid to make the first move, and 2022 puts that to the test. With lucky Jupiter in your sign from May 10 to October 28, you’ll have lots of exciting firsts that set the stage for you to shine for years to come. If you’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to launch a new venture, this is it! Jupiter will come back to your sign on December 20, but before that, you’ll have to contend with your ruling planet Mars going retrograde in your communication zone from October 30. After all that expansion, it’s only natural you’d outgrow certain friends and ways of expressing yourself. Trust that your true kindred spirits will stick around no matter how far you go. 

Taurus

With radical Uranus in your sign since 2018, you’ve been rebelling against past versions of yourself and embracing your singular way of showing up in the world—and in 2022, it’s time for a big reveal of the new you. First up, lucky Jupiter in your social sector syncs with Uranus on February 17 to connect you to the perfect friends, teams, and mentors to support you in the process. Then on April 30, a solar eclipse in your sign gives you a chance at a hard reset, where you can take a totally new path if you want to. You’ll be living in a whole new world by the time the lunar eclipse lands in your sign on November 8, and honestly, you wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Gemini

The last few years have been far from glamorous, but with lucky Jupiter in your career sector through May 10 and again from October 28 to December 20, you get glittering opportunities that’ll boost your portfolio well into the next decade. You’re in high demand, but when private Pluto in your intimacy zone aligns with Jupiter on February 17, be selective about who you let into your inner circle. And when smart Uranus in your regenerative twelfth house syncs with Jupiter on May 10, the best thing you can do is put self-care at the top of your priority list. After that, motivation planet Mars goes retrograde in your sign from October 30, helping you adjust to this new level by working smarter, not harder.

Cancer

If you’ve been waiting to have a “What are we?” conversation, the new year is the time to do it. With an eclipse cycle stirring things up in both your crushes and collaboration zones, you’re set to spend 2022 navigating the boundaries between love and friendship. Under the Taurus solar eclipse in your social sector on April 30, you make a once-in-a-lifetime connection, and the corresponding lunar eclipse on November 8 sees you crossing a major milestone together. Even better, the Scorpio lunar eclipse in your romance house on May 16 helps you say goodbye to relationships that are past their prime so you can meet your match under the solar eclipse on October 25.

Leo

Your outgoing sign loves to make friends with everyone, but with lucky Jupiter in your intimacy zone though May 10 and again from October 28 to December 20, you’ll have the best luck allowing a select few access to your inner circle. When it comes to romance, this vibe gives you the confidence you’ll need to open up to lovers about your sexual preferences so you can actually get what you want. You could go public with a new relationship when Jupiter syncs with unconventional Uranus on February 17, and you put love back on the schedule after it aligns with regenerative Pluto in your daily habits zone on May 16. 

Virgo

Get ready, because the stars are aligned for 2022 to be one of your most romantic years yet. Lucky Jupiter will be in your partnership zone through May 10 and again from October 28 to December 20, giving you the perfect opportunity to form relationships that are built to last. It makes a rare alignment with glamorous Neptune on April 12, delivering one of your most cinematic love moments ever. It feels like the end of a movie, especially when sweet Venus joins the party from April 6 to May 12. Moments like this only come around once in a lifetime, so don’t leave any words left unsaid. If you feel like there’s chemistry, let the other person know. You’ll be so glad you did!

Libra

Your romantic sign craves companionship, and in 2022, you’re on the way to meeting your match! Lucky Jupiter in your one-on-one partnership zone from May 10 to October 28 helps you attract people who are ready to grow alongside you and start a brand new adventure together, whether it’s a romantic relationship or another kind of collaboration. On top of that, an electric Taurus solar eclipse in your intimacy sector on April 30 delivers megawatt chemistry that makes you feel totally lit up. In fact, it’s so intense, you’ll feel aftershocks at the corresponding lunar eclipse on November 8. Your powers of attraction will be at an all-time high all year, so be intentional about who you let into your orbit. 

Scorpio

Who do you want to be, Scorpio? This year, two wild card eclipses in your sign give you the chance to reinvent yourself. The cosmos rolls out the red carpet for you to transform your style and make a dramatic debut. First, the lunar eclipse on May 16 helps you say goodbye to familiar but expired habits that aren’t aligned with the new you, and under the corresponding solar eclipse amped by beauty goddess Venus on October 25, you have a major Cinderella moment. After that, an intense Mars retrograde in your intimacy sector from October 30 revises who gets access to your guest list now that you’re on top. You’ll be busy, so reserve the best of you for a trusted few.

Sagittarius

You’re the zodiac’s free spirit, but in 2022, you finally make your way home. With expansive Jupiter in your cozy fourth house through May 10 and again from October 28 to December 20, you could invest in a dream living space, move to a new city, or otherwise create the sanctuary you’ve been craving. It syncs with Uranus in your daily grind sector on February 17 and Pluto in your money zone on May 3 to deliver work opportunities right to your doorstep. Even better, Jupiter moving into your pleasure-focused fifth house from May 10 to October 28 promises a sizzling summer, with plenty of crushes and creative projects to keep you entertained. You deserve to heal and have fun, Sagittarius!

Capricorn

Work is usually your first priority, but in 2022, the stars pull your focus—and your heartstrings—back to love. Venus retrograde in your sign joined hands with intense Pluto to help you reconnect to beauty, romance, and what you value, and when it wraps up on January 29, you’ll have a much deeper understanding of your desires. Venus’s exact alignment with Pluto on March 3 gives you a cosmic gift that’s worth its weight in gold, so invest it wisely into your future. On May 3, lucky Jupiter in your communication zone aligns with Pluto in your sign, connecting you to all the right people at just the right time. You’re usually a solo act, but this time, a group effort feels so much more rewarding.

Aquarius

After that, Uranus aligns with the Taurus solar eclipse on April 30 to supercharge your healing, and when it makes a rare connection to the north node (also known as the destiny point) on July 31, you skyrocket past blocks that have been holding you back for years. You’ve got a date with the cosmos, so show up, dress your best, and have an amazing time.
