With a brand-new year just over the horizon, there's no better time than now to start setting your goals for the chapter ahead. With that said, if you've been living a hair above your means or swiping your credit card one too many times, 2022 is the perfect opportunity to reprioritise your money matters. The same goes for your professional life, especially for those of you who aren't currently satisfied with your job or your financial stability. The truth is, these feelings aren't uncommon. But your 2022 money and career horoscope is bringing significant, beneficial shifts to your financial investments, career opportunities, and your relationship with money altogether. Have you begun to set any career-related intentions for the new year?
This new year starts with Venus — the planet of money, pleasure, relationships, and stability — retrograde alongside transformative Pluto in Capricorn until Jan. 29. Capricorn is determined, disciplined, and pragmatic; it governs everything related to your legacy and reputation in the world. If you're familiar with the astrological houses on your birth chart, check in which house 26 degrees of Capricorn is located for a deeper understanding of how this transit affects your life. Essentially, when a planet retrogrades, it slows down, meaning it doesn't work at full capacity. In the case of Venus, its retrograde period is encourageing you to reassess themes revolving around your spending habits, financial stability, and professional values — especially as these areas relate to your place of employment. Are you working tirelessly to meet your goals, but still not seeing the financial results you want? If your career is no longer in alignment with your soul's truth, you'll likely feel it pretty strongly at this time.
As you ready yourself to look toward the rest of the year ahead, here's what your 2022 money and career horoscope, according to your zodiac sign, has in store:
Aries (March 21-April 19) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: Improvising Brings You Luck and Fortune
You've been working on yourself for quite some time now, Aries, although there's always room for improvement. Since 2018, Uranus — the planet of chaos, innovation, and unexpected change — has been transiting through Taurus and your second house of comfort, money, and value systems; and it will remain there until 2026. In the process, you've been making the best of freedom-loving Uranus's sporadic shake-ups, meant to help you break free from predictability and whatever's keeping you financially stagnant.
On a brighter note, since your second house governs themes related to your self-worth, Uranus is simultaneously shedding light on your unique talents, some of which you've already begun to capitalize on. Spontaneous and unconventional, Uranus also rules the higher mind, so consider this a sign from the cosmos to think outside the box and test your luck, both financially and professionally.
Venus's January retrograde, on the other hand, will highlight everything from the foundation of your professional life to your definition of success. Don't sleep on your natural money-making gifts, and ensure you're planting your seeds for the future. Representing the direction we're collectively headed, the North Node will enter Taurus and your second house of wealth on Jan. 18, shining a spotlight on your possessions, spending habits, and unique abilities that will continue to evolve throughout this year's eclipse season. Be on the look out for a solar eclipse on April 30 and a lunar eclipse on Nov. 8, as both will occur in Taurus and your second house of money. On May 10, lucky Jupiter will return to your sign, before retrograding back into Pisces on Oct. 28 and returning to your sign again on Dec. 20. The sky's the limit during this time, and this transit is sure to bring you growth and expansion with both money and your career.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: a Year of Abundance and Success Awaits
Taurus, 2022 is a big year for you, for more reasons than you think. In addition to the North Node entering your sign on Jan. 18 and ushering you closer to your to soul's divine mission, your planetary ruler, Venus, will already be retrograde in Capricorn via your adventurous ninth house until Jan. 29. If there were ever a moment in time during which the cosmos were calling on you to redefine your long-term professional goals, it's now. That might be the decision to go back to school for an additional degree or certification, or taking on the financial risk of starting your own business. More importantly, with Venus sitting alongside Pluto, you're becoming more aware of what philosophies and belief systems of yours need to transform in order for you to reach those long-term goals. There's nothing sensually driven Venus loves more than security and wealth, and you will stop at nothing to succeed in these areas of life.
Rest assured, 2022 is looking good beyond the beginning of the year. Jupiter — celestial ruler of your eighth house of shared resources and financial collaborations — will be transiting through Pisces and your social 11th house for the majority of the year. During this time, bountiful Jupiter will present you with a series of fortuitous opportunities and connections that will feel almost too good to be true, given the effect they could have on your professional life and financial stability. A new moon and solar eclipse in your sign on April 30 will also prompt significant change for your sense of security for the following six months. On May 28, Venus returns to your sign, where she naturally thrives, bringing harmony to both your personal and professional life. Later, the fruits of your labour will likely start coming full circle right around the full moon and lunar eclipse in your sign on Nov. 8.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: Expect Professional Breakthroughs and Notoriety
If you're wondering what 2022 has in store for your money and career, buckle up, Gemini. First and foremost, the year begins with lucky, abundant Jupiter transiting through mystical Pisces and your ambitious 10th house, and it will stay put for the majority of 2022. Jupiter amplifies everything it touches, and in a dreamy sign like Pisces, it's really no holds barred. Put it this way: Pisces's mutable waters are equivalent to that of the ocean; its strength is vigourous and unstoppable. That idea applies to your professional life during this transit. Those of you in the media or in a creative industry are in for a treat, as there will be a plethora of opportunities for you to expand, grow, and work within your career.
There is one speed bump: until Jan. 29, Venus — the planet of wealth, stability, and value systems — will be retrograde alongside Pluto in Capricorn and your eighth house of joint finances and shared resources. Retrograde cycles are a slow-down period, encourageing us to reflect, review, and reassess the situation at hand. In Capricorn, however, these Venusian themes (i.e. money, investments, and values) more than likely revolve around career matters and business ventures. Knowing this, it's important to use this retrograde cycle wisely when it comes to your time and money, whether it has to do with a financial collaboration or perhaps even a small business loan.
More importantly, signing contracts or agreements in general isn't suggested during Venus retrograde, so it's best to wait until it stations direct on Jan. 29 to start making any major money moves. If you want to be 100 percent in the clear, wait until at least the second week of March, after Venus leaves its post-retrograde shadow phase. Your bank account will thank you later.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: This Is Only the Beginning For You
There's a lot to look forward to in 2022, Cancer, but you're also being called to work hard in a few ways, too. Let's talk challenges first. Until Jan. 29, Venus — the planet of comfort, money, unique talents, and value systems — will already be retrograde alongside Pluto in Capricorn and your seventh house, which has to do with meeting someone halfway. Despite the career opportunities that could be presented to you in the beginning of 2022, Venus — your stability — won't be working at its fullest potential, and the influence of shady, power-hungry Pluto isn't necessarily helping.
If anything, this Venus retrograde cycle is encourageing you to take a closer look at your agreements, contracts, and the balance (or lack thereof) stemming from your professional unions. Keep in mind, taskmaster Saturn — the planet of discipline, structure, and restriction — will be transiting through Aquarius and your eighth house of mergers and financial exchanges until March 7, 2023. Since Saturn entered your eighth house of other people's money back in March 2020, you've been taking a closer look at your finances, and perhaps paying back some debt in the process. This will continue to be a prominent theme for you throughout 2022. Fortunately, Saturn rewards us for our dedication and commitment, so keep up the good work.
Finally, some good news: abundant, expansive Jupiter will be transiting through Pisces and your ninth house of adventure, travel, and entrepreneurial visions for the majority of 2022. During this time, Jupiter will bless you with a renewed sense of hope for the future, while simultaneously prompting you to take a long-overdue leap of faith, like relocating for a new job opportunity or starting a YouTube channel to monetize your digital content. The possibilities are vast, and it gets better. On May 10, Jupiter will enter warrior-like Aries and your 10th house of career, bringing even more growth to your professional life. This is an exciting opportunity for you to discover your divine mission on the planet, so you can really execute your career plans moving forward.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: Having Faith and Trust Goes a Long Way
Leo, your money and career will be right at the top of your mind throughout 2022, and there's a lot of energy for you to harness that could really work in your favour. However, let's break down some challenging transits. Until the end of January, Venus — governing comfort, money, pleasure, and stability — will be retrograde alongside transformative Pluto in Capricorn, activating your responsible sixth house of employment and daily routines. During this time, you'll want to take a closer look at everything from your productivity levels to your general priorities in the workplace. You could also question your self-worth or feel generally unmotivated at this time. Try not to be so hard on yourself, and trust that the challenges like a lack of inspiration or a rough time with your schedule are all lessons for your highest good.
A nod to the general path we're headed down, the North Node will enter stability-seeking Taurus and your ambitious 10th house of career and legacy on Jan. 18. This will not only deliver fertile energy to your professional life, but also make it a general point of focus for the rest of 2022. Keep in mind, there will be a new moon solar eclipse in Taurus on April 30 and a full moon lunar eclipse in the same sign on Nov. 8. With both eclipses igniting your career sector, expect significant changes with regard to your professional life. Lucky Jupiter will also enter audacious Aries on May 10, activating your expansive ninth house of education, worldly pursuits, and entrepreneurial ventures, before retrograding back into Pisces on Oct. 28. Don't be afraid to take some (responsible) risks, especially if it has to do with securing the career of your dreams.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: Your Passions Will Take You on a Journey
If 2021 presented you with a series of career opportunities, 2022 will validate your intuition to move forward, Virgo. At the beginning of the year, Venus will already be retrograde alongside Pluto in Capricorn via your attention-seeking fifth house of fame and creativity. Retrograde cycles are for quietly reflecting on the situation at hand, but in your passionate fifth house, Venus's retrograde will shed light on everything from your desire to be acknowledged to the root of what inspires you to take action. For instance, have you been getting the recognition you deserve in the workplace? Being recognised for your hard work, especially by an authority figure, can be incredibly motivating; perhaps this is something you're realising you value in your professional life after all. The fifth house also governs your heart chakra and everything that brings you joy. That said, with Venus — the planet of money, security, and self-worth — sitting together with taboo-loving Pluto, expect significant shifts from this retrograde regarding the money you've invested into your guilty pleasures, as this may no longer resonate with the new beginning you're headed toward.
Chaotic change-maker Uranus is still travelling through Taurus via your expansive ninth house until 2026. Have you been contemplating whether to start a blog or a potential side gig just to see what happens for a while now? In the past four years, you've been greeted with spontaneous bursts of inspiration and lightning-like insight about your ideal career scenario. And in your ninth house of risks, rebellious Uranus shakes up your sense of direction with regard to your personal and professional life. Consciously or unconsciously, you're looking for ways to explore other horizons and step outside of your comfort zone. In Taurus, Uranus is also inspiring you to break free from the "conventional" ways of thinking about your career goals and financial stability. Keep the solar eclipse on April 30 and the lunar eclipse on Nov. 8 in the back of your mind, as both will occur in Taurus via your ninth house. New doors will open, but they'll more than likely require you to take a leap of faith.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: You're Discovering Your Infinite Source of Abundance
Libra, all of your hard work hasn't gone unnoticed over the last year, and you're reaping the rewards in 2022, but don't let up just yet. We enter 2022 with your planetary ruler, Venus, retrograde in ambitious Capricorn until Jan. 29, activating your security-seeking fourth house of home and emotional foundation. Your external image, such as your reputation and professional life, is typically a reflection of your internal reality and emotional stability. Venus's retrograde, then, is presenting you with an opportunity to reflect and review your idea of security and what will ultimately make you feel safe personally and financially.
Saturn — the planet of structure and self-mastery — will also be travelling through your creative fifth house of authenticity and self-expression until March 7, 2023. If you're in a creative industry, or you're in the process of making that happen, Saturn's journey through this house's fertile grounds is bringing you the discipline to do the necessary work. You could've been pondering a potential creative business venture for quite some time, but with the help of pragmatic Saturn, you'll be able to give form to and even capitalize on your thoughts.
On a more magical note, Jupiter, loaded with blessings, will spend most of 2022 transiting through Pisces and your responsible sixth house of due diligence, daily rituals, and work routines. Swirling with positivity, Jupiter's move through Pisces is an excellent time to level up in your area of employment, whether that looks like starting a new job or simply improving your day-to-day work conditions. Pushing you to let go of the unnecessary, the South Node will enter Scorpio and your financially driven second house of comfort, money, and possessions on Jan. 18, triggering a series of eclipses — May 16 and Oct. 25, specifically — throughout 2022. Eclipses typically introduce pivotal change, and in your second house of wealth and self-worth, these shifts will most likely revolve around your source of income.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: Everything Is Unfolding in Divine Timing
Contemplating your next big move, Scorpio? 2022 begins with comfort- and money-driven Venus retrograde in Capricorn and your third house of communication and thought processes. Here, the planet of wealth sits alongside your modern ruler, Pluto, highlighting your everyday encounters, how you communicate, and what is actually worthy of your time. Is there something in your immediate environment or workplace that's no longer resonating with you at your core? A negative thought pattern taking time away from your professional duties and financial abundance? All in all, Venus's retrograde journey is helping you recognise your self-worth and identify what truly matters in the long run. After all, when transiting through pragmatic, Saturn-ruled Capricorn, Venus takes pride in her financial investments and professional value, as should you.
Thank goodness Jupiter — signaling abundance and luck — will be transiting through Pisces for the majority of 2022, bringing you closer to your most authentic, creative, and expressive self. If you're in the creative, film, or media industries, this transit will surely deliver a surge of inspiration to you. The same goes for those of you working in other professional fields, as Jupiter will invigourate you with joy and confidence.
Ironically enough, the South Node will enter your sign on Jan. 18, triggering this year's Taurus-Scorpio eclipse series. Taking place in your sign on May 16 and Oct. 25, the eclipses in Scorpio will challenge you to purge what no longer serves you, bringing valuable insight to your career path. Don't be afraid to open your heart to this experience — some of you might even unlock a unique talent in the process. On May 10, Jupiter will enter assertive Aries and your responsible sixth house of employment and daily rituals, before retrograding back into Pisces on Oct. 28 and returning to Aries on Dec. 20. Expect the career decisions allowing you to thrive to become a little bit clearer.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: You're Making Positive Adjustments
The topic of money is never an easy one to discuss, but you're getting down to business in 2022, Sagittarius. For starters, Venus — the planet of finances and stability — will retrograde in Capricorn and your second house of security and wealth at the start of the year. During this retrograde cycle, Venus is encourageing you to reassess everything from your spending habits to your money-making abilities. How can you capitalize on your skills and talents? Where have you been undervaluing yourself? Venus also happens to rule your 11th house of associations, colleagues, and future aspirations, which means you may also rekindle professional connections from your past — some of which could offer you insight on your next big career move.
Meanwhile, your ever-so-lucky planetary ruler, Jupiter, will also transit through Pisces and your fourth house of home, family matters, and living spaces until May 10. Saving up some cash to renovate your home or switch up your space? Jupiter magnifies everything it touches, and something within you will more than likely need and benefit from more space at this time. Either way, this transit serves as an excellent catalyst to work harder and nurture your savings account.
On Jan. 18, the North Node will enter Taurus and your responsible sixth house of daily rituals, due diligence, and area of employment, pushing you closer to your professional calling. You will also feel more practical and analytical at this time, especially when it comes to your major responsibilities. Look out for the new moon solar eclipse on April 30 and the full moon lunar eclipse on Nov. 8, which may begin ushering in significant work-related changes all throughout 2022.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: Gear Up For a Personal and Professional Revamp
You're often recognised for your professionalism and pragmatism to begin with, but you're ready to take things to the next level in 2022, Capricorn, as you're feeling ready to maximise your potential personally and professionally. Firstly, you're ringing in the new year with Venus retrograde conjunct Pluto in your sign. Keep in mind, retrograde cycles are notoriously slow periods, offering you time to reflect on the situation at hand. With this retrograde in your first house of self and physical identity, this is an opportunity to critique and polish your business or personal brand. Have you been working at your fullest potential? If not, how can you nurture yourself to ensure that you are? On the downside, some of you may even come to realise where you've been selling yourself short and how that could be affecting your financial income. This all sounds chaotic, yes, but don't stress about the outcome; take things day by day.
Fortunately, Jupiter — the planet of abundance, blessings, and expansion — will transit through Pisces and your third house of communication and immediate environment for the majority of 2022. This ingress will not only expand your perception and help you think outside the box when it comes to your professional life, it will also bless you with a renewed sense of hope, optimism, and inspiration. Your local network and resources will also benefit from this transit, as you are presented with exciting offers and creative ideas for a brand-new chapter. On Feb. 12, Mars will meet with Venus in Aquarius and your stability-seeking second house of money and unique talents. This electric synergy brings forth a series of inspiring ideas and monetizing opportunities that could benefit you quite nicely. Do you feel comfortable working in a virtual space? Perhaps you'll decide to set up an online shop with virtual payment methods, so you can earn passive income while you sleep. Your community and colleagues are also sources of inspiration for you during this time, so don't overlook the value of your connections.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: a Positive Transformation Lies Ahead
You're getting a lucky break in your money sector this year, Aquarius. For most of 2022, Jupiter, known to bring luck and blessings, will be transiting through Pisces and your second house or comfort, financial investments, and stability. During this time, you will more than likely feel flooded with inspiration when it comes to your ability to make money and your financial resources in general. Also known as the Greater Benefic, Jupiter magnifies everything it comes in contact with, so if your second house governs the money you have in the bank . . . well, you can do the maths. You will also gain greater awareness of your value systems, spending habits, and what truly matters to you, which will help you better manage your money and career ambitions moving forward.
Professionally, it's important to consider the eager-to-release South Node entering transformative Scorpio and your ambitious 10th house of career on Jan. 18. Kick-starting this year's Taurus-Scorpio eclipse series — which will ignite your career sector on May 16 and Oct. 25 — these eclipses will likely bring about pivotal change in your professional life, specifically when it comes to your reputation in the world. That could look like a drastic career change or leaving a work situation entirely in pursuit of something better. On a final note, April 30 will be one of the most rewarding and magical days of the year, as Venus — the planet of beauty, money, pleasure, and stability — joins forces with lucky Jupiter in Pisces and your second house of financial security. Expect positive breakthroughs and blessings that could feel almost too good to be true.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) 2022 Money and Career Horoscope: a Bright Light Leads You Toward a Dream
Pisces, there's a lot to look forward to in your personal and professional life in 2022. Before you reap the fruits, however, the year kicks off with Venus retrograde in Capricorn and your 11th house of community until Jan. 29. Let's face it: you're a mutable water sign who, sometimes, would much rather retreat than mingle with potential connections who can guide you on your current career path. While there's nothing wrong with being an ambivert, Venus's retrograde through your social sector could resurface the connections you've undermined or the professional endeavours you may have disregarded once upon a time.
All in all, this retrograde cycle is here to teach you the value in building long-lasting connections and being a team player. The good news is, with the help of abundant Jupiter — your traditional ruling planet — transiting through your sign for the majority of 2022, there's plenty of room for you to go forth and prosper, both financially and professionally, with some valuable learnings in tow. Jupiter transiting through your sign also means you're the celestial favourite for the time being, so don't let this burst of luck from the cosmos pass you by.
On Jan. 18, the North Node (what guides us toward something) will enter Taurus and your communicative third house, while the South Node (what guides us away from something) occupies Scorpio and your ninth house of education and expansion. This is important to keep in mind, as there will be a new series of Taurus-Scorpio eclipses — April 30 and Nov. 8 in Taurus and May 16 and Oct. 25 in Scorpio — bringing heavy awareness to your immediate surroundings and personal philosophies. You can expect these events to push you toward the financial investments or the next career move that'll benefit you in the long run. Finally, on May 10, Jupiter will enter Aries and your second house of money and values, before retrograding back into your sign on Oct. 28 and then returning to your financial sector on Dec. 20. In other words, prosperity awaits when it comes to your finances and growth in your self-confidence. Be patient.
