Year of 2022
Aries, you’re sizzling from the very beginning of the year as your power planet Mars winds down its time with fellow fire sign Sagittarius in the first weeks of January. A thirst for knowledge and life experiences fills this time in your life with a sense of wonder and adventure. There’s no limit to what you can learn when you keep an open mind now!
Of course, Mars is perfectly at home in your aggressive sign from the end of May until early July, throwing you into competitive overdrive and helping you conquer anything that gets in your way. You know exactly where you want to go, and although you might not always take the most direct path to getting there, you won’t stop until you reach your destination.
However, Aries, Mars is retrograde in clever Gemini from late October until the end of the year, so you’ll have to be open to taking a more strategic approach to life. You like to just power through your problems, but your typical aggressive “purely running on adrenaline” energy won’t work so well now. You thrive when you’re contemplative and thoughtful, working through your problems by writing them down and journaling rather than simply trying to ignore them.
Your birthday month is always exciting, so at some point between late March and late April you should be anticipating a blowout! With this celebratory energy surrounding you this whole month, you’re ready to take on the world, and you aren’t afraid to really go after what you want. You’re great at taking the initiative and being a leader, and you definitely don’t like to be told what to do. Avoid arguments and petty disagreements now by doing your best to ignore people who try to get you fired up for no good reason.
