Since November 2020, the nation has experienced a change in power from the red to blue, as President Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump in the presidential election. We have also witnessed — and been part of — the fight for racial equality with the continuous Black Lives Matter movement. According to Ellen Bowles, an astrologer, tarot reader and ancestral healer, all of these antiquated systems of power will continue to be challenged in 2022 and beyond. As she explains, Pluto is in Capricorn until 2024, and that’s a powerful alignment. “Over the next few years, we will continue to see our outdated political systems be exposed and the reorganization of power," she says.
Considering nearly all parts of our lives feel uncertain these days, having faith can be a tricky belief to come by. However, in 2022, it’ll be essential. On a collective conscious and global scale, next year’s theme is trust, says Jeannette von Johnsbach, a leading energy healer at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. “The waters run deep, emotions run high, and we are in a time that requires faith and trust in life and humanity. Fear has replaced our ability to see clearly.” In 2022, she says it will become apparent that the only way forward is through trust, confidence in life, and our ability to take the following steps with conviction.
According to Bowles, because the planet Uranus will be in Taurus until 2025, there will be experimentation and revolution when it comes to finances and material matters. “With Uranus ruling technology, expect big advancements when it comes to digital forms of currency,” she says. “In a post-pandemic world, we will continue to see technology replace physical exchange of goods. The financial market will experience unexpected changes and unpredictability.”
Much like you have an astrological sign, so do countries, marriages, and jobs. And based on the natal chart for the United States (born July 4, 1776), 2022 marks the beginning of the country’s Pluto Return, explains astrologer Kelsey Kennedy. At the start of 2022, Kennedy says there will be a lot of transformative and forward-moving energy. “Fire and Earth signs are going to see it more in their finances and career, while Air and Water signs will feel it more in their personal lives, family, and community,” she continues. “After this past year of stop and go, allow yourself to ride this wave of uplevelling. But by the second half of 2022, see how you can balance it out with rest and relaxation to avoid burnout.”
Reiki healer and owner of MajaEden Wellness, Meah Starr Kadziela, says 2022 will be a biggie, as we will all be urged to reach higher levels. She predicts there’s a possibility for strong female leadership in the United States, as well as a prophet that could help to unite us all. “This prophet will deliver messages of love, hope, healing like never before seen, and will be a direct driving force to complete uniting millions upon millions of people across the globe,” she says. Since hope will feel renewed, she also says there will be a major decline in those who report and identify anxiety as something they struggle with. “Peace will be restored, and trust and the belief that we are truly all one, rising to the next level of human greatness,” she adds. “2022 will be seen as a year unlike any other. Prepare yourself for a heart-opening, mind-opening year never before seen in history.”
