Cancer 2022 year ahead

This is an excellent time in business and your chosen career. Your plans are working out and you will be rewarded financially.

Partnerships are very significant currently. Are you ready to make a commitment? This is a very good time to deal with legal matters associated with the your relationship/partnership. There is a big emphasis on joint financial matters for you and your partner/spouse and or business partner. The financial rewards look very promising and your joint resources are likely to grow.

The chart indicates that work and well-being are important to manage day to day. You are unlikely to be able to control all issues day to day at work.

This is a good time to travel – do you and your partner want to travel to the same destination? You may need to negotiate!

Gemini 2022 year ahead

Your big focus is communication and your own ideas. You seem plugged in to your local community and these connections with neighbours and people in the local or school community are supportive at this time. It is also a good time to connect with siblings. But with Mercury in Gemini and retrograde and combust, you may need to consider what you think and or say. You may need to revisit certain ideas.

You are concerned about financial matters – your personal financial resources. It seems like things may be up and down currently. The chart indicates that income is unpredictable. You may need to consider a new income stream but with this comes a certain amount of risk. It seems like an appropriate time to consider your options.

Relationships may be more challenging and you may need to work though some issues. The matter of love and financial resources has your attention.

This is an important time professionally and your focus is on achieving status, recognition and financial rewards. There appear to be certain things professionally that are beyond your control. You may need to surrender?

You are excited about travel opportunities in the year ahead.

Jupiter in Aries

Jupiter enters the sign of Aries on 11 May 2022. It leaves the sign on 28 October as it travels back into Pisces for a while and then enters Aries again on 20 December 2022 and continues its journey in Aries until 16 May 2023. Mars the ruler of Aries will connect with Jupiter between 22 May and 5 June and will be exact on 29 May 2022. Mars speaks about energy, action and aggression and Jupiter will magnify these qualities. Expect bold moves whether in the stock market, on the battle field or in the sports arena. Things are likely to become very competitive. Sports records may be broken. New frontiers are likely to open up especially when it comes to education, knowledge, travel and space. This is a time of confidence and bravado.

Mercury retrograde again from tomorrow

Mercury travels retrograde again from 10 May to 3 June 2022. This is a time to go over details related to information and data. More information might reveal itself. Deals may not go through and this may end up being a good thing. Dot i’s and cross t’s. Miscommunication and misunderstandings are more likely. Backup computers and phones. You may have issues with appliances or anything technical. Think gates, garage doors, house alarms. If you have been mulling over changes to any of these things, then now may just be the time you need to sort out your plans.

Taurus 2022 year ahead

This is an important time financially. You are feeling joyful and optimistic. Be mindful of excessive use of drugs and alcohol. Escaping in no way to cope. You have many dreams. What about falling pregnant and having a child? Is this a good time? Is there ever a good time?

There is some emphasis on your local community, schools and siblings. It seems like things are going well – but could still be somewhat disruptive and unsettled. You seem to be dealing with matters behind the scenes. This is a good time to communicate your thoughts to those close to you. Keep strong boundaries. Know your limits when it comes to dealing with siblings/neighbours and school matters.

Your partner may be very engaged with day to day work and is working very hard. Financial rewards look good jointly. You would love to travel – perhaps coincide with a work trip with your partner.

Its time to reassess what success means to you – you need to make some changes. Some friendships may have run the course. Connecting with old friends is great as long as the connection is positive and not toxic. You may need to let go of some friendships.

Ukraine and Russia

Both countries were born in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union, Ukraine on 1 Dec 1991 and Russia on 5 Sep 1991.

In 2013 and 2014 the government collapsed and there was significant protest action with Uranus and Pluto transits. President Viktor Yanukovych fled to Russia and left behind a lavish palace, indications of a corrupt regime according to the protesters. A decision was made to bring Ukraine closer to Europe and EU. In March 2014, Russia seized Crimea.
2015 and 2016 looked equally difficult indicating massive social unrest amongst people, the land and the public service in general. In this period a agreement was reached with Russia over the conflict in Eastern Ukraine. In 2016 and 2017 the issue relates to the image of the country and its leadership and relations with Russia. All is not what it seems. In 2017 the situation becomes untenable for the people of Ukraine. Poroshenko was President from June 2014 to May 2019.
2019 describes a big change in direction for the country and its leadership and during this period Zelensky was elected as President. He campaigned against corruption, poverty and an end to the war in the east of the country. In 2020 and 2021 pressure mounts in relation to the wealth of the country and its people. It is at this time that Zelensky orders a series of measures against oligarchs, some close to Putin and shuts down 3 pro Russian TV stations. Russia starts deploying troops along the Ukraine border from April 2021.
It looks like this situation may linger for a while until significant changes happen in 2025 and 2026.

Uranus made an aspect to Moon and Saturn in Russian chart between May 2018 and March 2019. This aspect speaks about instability abroad and with Ukraine. An uprising – a crisis. This situation will once again come into focus as Pluto transits in 2023 and 2024. It highlights issues with trade and legal matters that affect people far and wide and in neighbouring countries, together with communication and transportation. This is a destructive period. It signifies an end to the long drawn out conflict, the need to surrender. Pluto rules death, debt and taxation – there are many problems it appears. This war will have been costly in many different ways.
It certainly seems like this situation is unstable for a number of years.

In addition Pluto is about to change signs once again indicating a period of significant social and generational changes.
Pluto ingresses into Aquarius in March 2023 and stays in this sign until Jan 2044. This is a long cycle and this planet was last in Aquarius between 1777 and 1798. It was on 4 July 1776 that the United States adopted the Declaration of Independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. America is undergoing its Pluto Return during 2022 and 2023 – this is a very significant period in US history. It is a time of significant change. Discarding old systems that are no longer fit for purpose. Pluto rules – death/debt/taxation.
There is no doubt these next few years create fundamental changes across the world.

29 March to 5 April 2022 – Venus and Mars connect with Saturn

The dominant theme in 2021 and 2022 has been the Saturn Uranus square. This aspect started in March 2020 and concludes in December 2022. The aspect was most intense in 2021 when it was exact 3 times on 17 Feb, 15 June and 24 Dec 2021. March 2020 was the start of lockdowns across the world. SA locked down for 3 weeks initially on 23 March 2020. But this lockdown has morphed into something else over time. Saturn speak about rules and those in authority and Uranus speaks about freedom and independence. These 2 planets are at odds and in a tricky relationship with one another. There are those in society who have been very pro lockdowns and there are others who have been anti lockdown as a means of controlling a virus as their personal freedoms have been trampled on. It has been obvious to see government overreach at various stages of this process. We are still in some sort of lockdown and it seems like governments are having a hard time weaning themselves off these rules and regulations. Especially governments like the ANC who have always yearned after a centralised system. The language of the National Command Council says it all. The National State of Disaster has been extended monthly since the start. The normal running of our Constitutional Democracy with Parliament as the oversight body is put on hold with enormous power vested in a small grouping of ministers.

We watched as the police and military were unable to control the riots which unfolded from 29 June to 7 July 2021. This looting was directly related to the arrest of Zuma and the battle raging on in the ANC. This is most certainly a time of social unrest. Lockdown has forced many businesses and individuals into financial distress. Millions of people have been pushed deeper into poverty with the disruptions to society over these past 2 years. The homeless problem has been exasperated with many more people on the streets and local authorities unable to act with the State of Disaster in place.

Venus and Mars joined this aspect in July 2021 – Venus speaks about love and money and Mars is the aggressor. On 7 July Venus and Mars opposed Saturn and made a square aspect to Uranus. This was a highly volatile time and after 9 days of chaos the situation calmed but not after a massive amount of destruction to business and society. We are still none the wiser as to what unfolded even though an estimated R20 billion worth of damages occurred to infrastructure and businesses in KZN and Gauteng mainly.

In July 2021 Venus and Mars opposed Saturn – now Venus and Mars will be joining Saturn in March/April 2022.

Venus was marching towards Saturn on 20 March and then on 24 March, Mars started its advance on Saturn – the day Russia invaded Ukraine. Mars is associated with a show of force and aggression. This aspect becomes intense in this next week from 29 March to 5 April. It certainly is a volatile time in SA and across the world. There are opposing forces at play – those wanting peace and those wanting war.

This Saturn Uranus square indicates a period of significant societal change – 1930/31 and 1950/51 and 1976/77 and 1999/2000 and now again in 2021 and 2022.

Jupiter conjunct Neptune 19 March to 8 May 2022

Jupiter magnifies what it touches. Neptune speaks about dreams and ideals. Imagining a more beautiful world. But Neptune also speaks about illusions and delusions. Dreams not in touch with reality. We can expect a big pull towards dreams of a better future – peace and not war. But is this a realistic option? Time will tell. Neptune is deceptive. It speaks about lies and manipulation. Jupiter seeks the truth and Neptune may make that hard to find currently. This aspect is exact on 12 April. Will peace manifest in the war in Ukraine?

Neptune rules drugs and alcohol. If you are an addict this may be a time when you struggle to manage your addiction – can’t get enough. Want more and more and more. This is a dangerous situation. Overdose? Escape. Can’t face hardship and just need an escape. The situation is not likely to resolve at this time. But there needs to be an acknowledgement that your current path is not sustainable. Time to be truthful with yourself. Stop deceiving yourself and others.

Neptune rules the oceans and oil. Expect oil prices to rise in this period.

Neptune is ultimately wanting us to find deeper meaning in our lives – not a desire to escape but a deep desire to connect spiritually in a universal way. Finding your way to your truth whether this is via a religious and or spiritual path.

Aries – 2022 year ahead

This is an important time for you in partnership – personal and or business. There is a need for growth and expansion. There are some niggles which need to be resolved. It is important for the partnership to find purpose and direction. You need to ask yourself what you want for yourself in your relationship/business partnership. Other partnership opportunities may cross your path. What then? What is best for your family? Should the family move? Are these dreams realistic?

It seems that you and your partner need to negotiate matters related to your work and routine. It is important to focus on your roles and responsibilities at work and or your day to day responsibilities in your partnership. What needs to change? Is there a legal matter that needs your attention? Is there an opportunity further afield that you need to consider? Things may take an unexpected turn. There is much uncertainty when considering opportunities abroad.

This is an important time financially. If your work responsibilities need to change, what are the financial implications? What do you need to discard day to day to make changes to your work responsibilities?

Important to look after your well-being – health and wellness must also take priority day to day and these aspects need to be scheduled into your daily routine. Making time for your children and sporty or creative pursuits is equally important to work responsibilities.

Putin and Ramaphosa – born 1952

Interestingly both leaders were born in 1952. Putin on 7 October and Ramaphosa on 17 November.

Saturn conjunct Neptune square Uranus.

Saturn conjunct Neptune sextile Pluto.

Saturn is exalted in Libra and this emphasises the desire to be in control from a point of view of knowing what is right. Saturn conjunct Neptune speaks about an idealist. Dreaming of a better society. It also speaks about the possibility of being delusional, dreams not in touch with reality. This conjunction speaks about being disillusioned with the system at particular stages in life.

Saturn/Neptune sextile Pluto – desire for power and control especially with Pluto in Leo.

Saturn/Neptune square Uranus – desire to break the system with revolution and create an ideal society.

The years 1992, 1993 and 1994 (Uranus and Neptune transits) were significant for both these individuals in terms of their desire to create changes in society. And we know what happened to SA at that time. 2016/2017/2018/2019 (Uranus and Pluto transits) were equally significant and once again indicated a time of personal and societal change. Pluto speaks about destruction and decay and the need to discard outdated ideals from past. Uranus wants a significant change integrating innovation and technology. We can see what has happened to SA in this time. The dream did not materialise quite as anticipated and something new needs to be created – for self and society.
