The Moon calendar 2022 is filled with all the dates of New Moons, Full Moons, lunar and solar eclipses - and which sign of the zodiac they fall in. In light of the gravitas of these events in astrology, it's definitely worth marking them down in your calendar ahead of time.

Your Moon sign is an indicator, in your astrology birth chart, of your deepest desires and needs. On top of what it shows in our chart, the Moon is also an important factor in the astrological events in 2022, as are eclipses in astrology.

The Moon and the lunar cycle have been a source of fascination since humanity began. Many still believe that the lunar cycle can affect moods and how people behave - often with a more negative connotation. Move over Mercury in retrograde 2022 - we'll get to you later.

In fact, words like 'looney' and 'lunatic', which are insensitive and outdated words often given to people with mental illness, have their origins in 'luna' - the Latin word for moon. And in fairness, before humanity knew the science behind the lunar cycle and eclipses - they had the capacity to cause widespread anxiety and panic.

Heck, even during the information age, any staunch disbelievers in astrology could find themselves all aquiver if they took a deep dive into the Royal Family's link to eclipses.

Spooky correlations aside, the cycle itself offers an opportunity to take pause, meditate, think about what you'd like to leave behind, and what you'd like to focus on moving forward.

So when you're making your plans, as well as checking out your 2022 horoscope, you had better consider when to schedule Full Moon rituals to help you manifest bliss this year.
