ASTROLOGY OF 2022: How to plan your Year


If you're like many people, you welcome each new calendar year with resolutions, planners, and a big-picture time line for what you'd like to accomplish in the year ahead. If you'd like a little help from astrology, here are the most relevant cycles to keep in mind. 

EASTERN HEMISPHERIC EMPHASIS in your yearly Solar Return Chart

With nine or all of the planets in the eastern half of the chart, one is either self-motivated or not motivated at all. 

During the year, it is the personal desire of the individual which pushes for success in almost any endeavor, not the intent or wishes of someone else. For this reason, persons with the eastern emphasis chart do not have to depend on anyone else for guidance or support. They are already inspired on an inner level. 

Use this year to develop self-motivation, self-direction, and self-reliance. 


This does not mean that important others are missing from your life; but it does show a need for personal action and the realization that there are some things that others cannot do for you, and you must do for yourself. 

This type of chart can indicate too much emphasis on self-interest without any regard for others. You can ignore the effect your behavior has on others, make impulsive decisions without consulting the significant people in your life, or refuse to compromise when there is a conflict. You may become increasingly comfortable with yourself while becoming dissociated from those whom you 

This is a good time to feel your own power and sense of achievement on a personal level. You want to test your own ability to make things happen. Being successful this year can lead to further successes later in relationships and career. Many of your planets might be moving to the southern hemisphere next year, so this is a time for pilot studies and dry runs. You need to develop talents and self confidence to prepare for future endeavors.

Presented below are the interpretations for hemispheric emphasis, quadrant emphasis, mode, and element preponderances and lacks. The reader should remember that narrow interpretations of singular astrological data are never the ideal. It is difficult to isolate one factor for interpretation without considering the rest of the chart. This is especially true of the following factors which tend to be general and particularly susceptible to contraindications in the rest of the solar return chart. It is important that you weigh the following factors according to their consistency or lack thereof with significant themes in the interpretation.
