In April-May and then in November, the challenges of this position are more likely to be felt. There could be issues regarding independence and freedom, legal matters, confinement or hiatus, or the need to tend to the care of others.

However, overall this is a period of greater realism and practicality. You are more able to meet your responsibilities. Life feels solid and stable, zodiac sign dates and the benefits of this influence are likely to be felt most strongly when Saturn officially trines your Sun or Ascendant. In 2022, you have many opportunities to set your life in order.

Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Personality, Personal Image

Your 2022 Aries Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you can take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.

In March 2018, you entered a lengthy cycle where the image you present to the world and your personality change quite rapidly. You are embracing change, pushing yourself beyond your usual limits, expressing your independent streak, and taking a few personal risks. This influence continues throughout 2022 and beyond.

Potential negatives: While personal changes are necessary and perhaps inevitable, foolish risk-taking and pointless rebellion are not! You don’t need to throw away everything from your past or clean your slate to express your independence. Tame your urges to rebel just for the sake of it, particularly in mid-March, when domestic, career, and reputation matters need special attention, and in early May and October, when you can have a hard time dealing with restrictions of any kind.

However, this influence can be a very liberating one. Some detachment level allows you to progress in areas where you previously held yourself back through fear, excessive emotionality, or lack of confidence. Until June, incredibly wonderful energy is with you for the more positive manifestations of this influence. You are discovering new ways of expressing yourself and your creativity. You could meet someone or come across information who/that changes your perspective and awakens something inside of you. This is a time of new ventures and possible breakthroughs.

Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Career, Reputation, Personality, Work, Health, Partnerships

Your 2022 Aries Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation occur. It’s a time for “out with the old, in with the new.”

Career, professional matters, and public life continue to transform this year. All year, professional matters continue to require significant and lasting fundamental changes. There can be tests to your level of expertise and possibly even exposure to your areas of weakness. Treat these as challenges to improve. Changes may seem more challenging in February and May when you can be distracted by pleasure and romance, as well as in March when sudden events can temporarily throw you off-center, and you become acutely aware of the need to update your skills or become more advanced and current in your business.

However, October brings more accessible, more natural change when your view of your changes is incredibly positive. It becomes pretty apparent that the steps you’re taking ultimately lead to a more secure footing in your professional life. Your ambition increases pleasantly, you are more enterprising, and you seek to expand your business or work pursuits, quite willingly putting in the extra effort to do so. You could develop new products or redesign your business, and recognition for your efforts is forthcoming.

As well, your personality and your partnerships will continue to evolve in meaningful ways in 2022. Your definitions of “me” and “you” are transforming. Issues of personal courage, confidence, and independence come to the fore. Personal appearance, your body, and your image become especially important. For some, marriage or divorce will be an issue. For most, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their personal growth will come into strong focus. With the North Node moving through your partnership sector most of the year (until October-November), you are called upon to face up to your needs and desires to partner.

Also, this year, and especially in the last quarter of 2022, your attitude towards service, health, work, and privacy is evolving in important ways. Circumstances are such that you need to develop healthy habits, routines, and schedules. You are called upon to rid yourself of under-performing guilt and develop faith and trust in a larger, more spiritual plane. It’s time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, develop more compassion and understanding of others, and be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. It’s time to let go of some of your obsessions with rules, details, and fears of not doing things perfectly, but it’s also essential to take charge of your lifestyle and habits. Unexpected complications can force you to take the rest you need unless you recognize this need and feed it. Work on balancing mental and physical health, and between work and rest, particularly around the eclipses in March and September.

Your Planetary Ruler in 2022: Mars is your planetary ruler. From January 12-February 19, take extra time on decisions, get extra rest, and consider taking action on stagnant areas of your life. More power to you when your ruler is in your sign, and this year, this period is from February 19th to March 31st. March is a power month for getting things done and dazzling others with your unique qualities, independence, and enterprise. Focus is on money and building your resources from April 1-May 11. Two intense periods for putting effort into your projects and work are May 12-June 23 and September 25-November 12. October is powerful for work and health initiatives. Romance, creativity, children, and entertainment become animated from August 9-September 24, and attraction is powerful in the last week of June.
