For Aries, your money horoscope suggests that 2022 will be the year that your hard work and investments (both in yourself and in key financial areas of your life like your business) pay off.
Astrologer Penny Thornton explains: "All the work you’ve put in over the past six years is about to pay off. The lunar eclipses of the year (16 May and 8 November) have a bearing on your financial future. An inheritance, settlement or job upgrade for some, and a big spend for others."
Sally Morgan agrees that a new job or a promotion is on the horizon—bringing financial gains with it: "A message in March brings news you’ve been hoping for. In September, travel is likely and you could visit an exotic location—perhaps for work, as you’re about to take up a new job or business opportunity."
Finally, Bracha Goldsmith advises making the most of the good fortune coming your way in 2022 Aries—if you've been waiting for the right time to start a new venture, this could be the year. "If you’ve been thinking of going into business for yourself, this is the year to do it. Your creativity is blossoming and you’re ready! Don’t procrastinate any longer. If you already have your own business, it’s time to explore new avenues. Doors are opening and you can walk through them if you choose. Good months for finances are February, March, October and November," she said.
In 2022, the money horoscope for Taurus promises plenty of change, with new opportunities in your work. The biggest money months for Taurus are set to come at the very beginning and close to the end of the year.
Penny Thornton said, "Saturn continues to make its mark on your career, which means some of you will take on a job with greater responsibility and pay, while others will struggle to find work or receive the recognition they require. Early February could prove to be make or break time for money and work." But Sally Morgan predicts that the end of the year will also seen big business too:
"It’s a year of change, but the largest will occur towards winter. A creative opportunity in November will lead to a business development course. You’re invited to step into a role of authority, and a successful venture will place your life in the public arena."
Bracha also agreed that new projects will come up for you this year. She predicts, "Financially there will be several new opportunities coming your way this year. Make sure that whatever you put your energy into is something that gives you pleasure—do it for the joy of doing it and the money will flow in freely. Don’t be afraid to get involved in some new projects. You can always try something out for a while without making a long-term commitment. Your good months for business are March, April and October."
2022 is a big year for Geminis to action creative ideas for making money, and if you are dedicated, things will quickly fall into place. According to Bracha, "This is a year for expressing more of your creativity. You have many ideas, but choose the one you feel most passionate about."
Penny Thornton agreed, explaining that while you should make bold moves, you should also be sure not to be over-zealous when moving your money about. She predicts, "Offers and opportunities may appear out of the blue, but you’ll find effort and determination get results. This is a good year to buy a property, but not to invest in schemes that may well fail to deliver."
Sally says, "A business idea will be hugely successful in autumn, when a long-term project comes to fruition. You’ll find you’re a fast learner."
But as mentioned, the key will be staying open and keep working hard. Bracha continues, "Give yourself small tasks daily that you know you will complete and build the way to success. Financially you have many possibilities for income, so stay open and consider outlandish ideas, as they may be profitable. Good months for finance are February, March and December."
For Cancers in 2022, your money horoscope suggests that while financial relations may be strained, luck is on your side money-wise—though you may have to shout about it!
Penny explained, "Jupiter’s entry into the area of career and life goals (10 May) opens the way to success and recognition. You may be lucky and people will realize what a star you are, but a bit of self-promotion won’t go amiss. Saturn continues to hamper financial relations—lenders and partners are not in a generous mood—but you can make money."
Bracha agrees that this is the year to look at multiple income opportunities and not just rely on one: "This is an excellent year for exploring your entrepreneurial abilities. If you have a product or service that you are excited about, share it! This is your year for creating several streams of income. The stars will bring you opportunities and it will be up to you to dive in and go for it. Your best months financially are March, April and October."
However, it's vital to look after yourself to maintain your success. Sally Morgan explained, "During May, you may face changes as your workload increases. Your ability to work hard and burn the candle at both ends may leave you feeling exhausted during the busier times of the year." Why not treat yourself to one of the best zodiac gifts, as a treat for your hard work?
It'll be an unpredictable year for Leo's work and money-wise, but that doesn't mean it won't be fruitful.
Sally predicts that 2022 will bring new career moves: "A promotion or new business venture sees you reaching for the stars, as growth and personal happiness are highlighted. You’ll feel you’re finally where you want to be. As one door closes, the windows open, allowing you to chase your dreams."
Penny Thornton says, "Uranus continues to make the going unpredictable and this could mean you’ll be doing more than one job or retraining in order to find one. 2022 favors enterprise and you could go into business with a partner or team up with a colleague. Lenders should be generous, and buying and selling is a good option."
And according to Bracha, one of the main themes will be taking control of your finances. "Financially your aspects are quite positive this year," she said. "The key is to keep a good handle on your expenses and outgoings. Ask yourself why you really want to buy something. Do you need it? Or is it a desire? Spend wisely, pay down any debts and your finances will flow." Like Penny, Bracha also expects financial collaborations to work well. She said, "Collaborations are under favorable stars. Your best months for ventures are February, April and November."
For Virgos, 2022 is all about self-promotion—but it'll be vital not to burn yourself out in the process.
For your money horoscope, Penny predicts an exciting year for Virgos if they can utilize their connections: "You have to remind people how talented you are. Network like crazy. Use your contacts. Some Virgos will work abroad or with international firms; others may find themselves teaching or mentoring. Money comes in during the second half of 2022, either through work, a settlement, a property sale or a legacy," she said.
Sally concurs, but explains that it's important to make sure it all works for you too. "You may be feeling very eager to please at the start of the year and will even take on things that you don’t really enjoy, as you’re not afraid of hard work. But life is too short—think things through carefully, choose wisely and cherish every second you have."
Bracha also insists that big things will happen, but they'll need consistent action to come to life: "You are full of new ideas, many of which have the potential to boost your finances. Take consistent action every day, and if you have an existing business, maybe explore new avenues. There are wonderful opportunities out there for you, so don’t give up. Someone may want to support you financially, but make sure there are no strings attached. The best months for your finances are January, February and October."
Money horoscope predictions for Libra in 2022 look good, especially if you are keen to strike out on your own. However, there are a few reasons to be financially cautious...
Bracha predicts, "This is a great year for going self-employed, doing projects or working in a consulting capacity. Although your income may be unpredictable, you may find that you earn more than before, especially if you focus on doing what you love. You are extremely creative, with many good ideas, and now is the time to pursue them. Best months for financial transactions, deals and investments are May to August."
Penny agreed that your financials look very promising, but that for some Libras it could be in a very different way to being self-employed. "Partnerships prosper, and you could be headhunted by a top organization. The year’s eclipses highlight the financial axis, so there is an element of fate to the way money. Back your own talents," she said.
According to Sally, the key for many Libras will be to take breaks and keep the details of your finances private: "Balance your work and free time over the summer, taking into account your personal and professional obligations, as you may end up feeling exhausted with little time left for rest. The Full Moon moves into Aries in October, when somebody you’ve taken into your confidence may turn out to be untrustworthy, so keep your financial situation to yourself."
For Scorpios in 2022, it's a time of big change—but that needn't be negative! There are huge opportunities for making money, especially in the latter part of the year.
Bracha said, "Financially, 2022 is positive. It’s a great time to reduce or pay off debts, and try not to take on any new ones. Work with what you have and create something new from a shoestring instead. You will have many opportunities for making money—choose something that excites you and you’ll do well. Apply caution to investments and don’t rush into anything. Your best months for deals are April, May and December."
While Penny agreed that it could be a great time to learn new skills and that bigger investments could be stalled. "2022 is a year of transition. You may need to change your career or gain new skills to progress in your field, and if you are in your mid-40s, it’s time to follow your passion. The second half of the year is better for money and work, but there could be delays with property sales and purchases."
And according to Sally, "The best places to visit in March for you will be near water - as this will bring a new person into your life, which will lead to study and an exciting opportunity."
Success is coming your way this year financially and career wise, with hobbies having the potential to provide lucrative returns in 2022.
Bracha explained that consistency will be key to achieving your financial goals over the next 12 months. She said, "This year is well starred for finances if you are proactive and consistent. Stop procrastinating—when you take constructive action, you will receive positive results. This is not a good time for partnerships, though. Work project-by-project rather than tying yourself into something long-term. Things will change radically and you’ll need freedom to move. Your best months are February, June and November."
While Sally agrees that hard work will pay off ten-fold: "A fiery new hobby will become extremely important to you this year and will bring unique ideas to the forefront of your mind. Take center stage and luck could lead you on to a successful career. As you feel so passionate about this hobby, the joy you feel will rub off on others, and your reputation will soar. Hard work pays off, and you’re able to save for a rainy day and a future house move or car."
But, Penny Thornton cautioned against being too flippant with money, too. "You may start a family business, receive family money and backing or you could work from home. It is also a good year to invest in property and your own talents. But it’s not a good year to throw money around. The New Moon (2 January) starts a new financial cycle and one that will yield results in mid-July," she said.
Aquarians—a key theme of your money horoscope for 2022 is to expect the unexpected.
Penny Thornton explains, "You may have to rethink your long-term prospects. Jupiter’s passage through the money zone should help finances, but with the eclipses of the year on your life-direction axis, completely random developments affect your course."
While Bracha Goldsmith predicts that you'll be busy but it'll be a year full of good stuff: "This promises to be an exciting year for you, financially. You will be kept on your toes, but it can be fun! You have many ideas and this is the year to act on them. Be ready to promote yourself—you will be surprised how much you can accomplish. Putting a small amount of money into something speculative could pay off handsomely. Excellent times for investments and promotions are February to April and October."
Finally, Sally Morgan says that big things with big companies could be on the horizon. "New beginnings and personal growth on the creative front might see you headhunted by a large company."
Things will really begin to take off fiscally from the middle of the year for Capricorns, and it could be a good time to invest if you make sensible decisions.
Penny explains, "It may take until mid-June before your efforts to find work or improve finances start to pay off. Likewise, a new home or using your home for investment purposes is more likely from June. It may also be time to rethink your career and retrain."
And Bracha agreed that any efforts you do make will pay off, as long as you make thought-through choices. "Financially, you are going through many changes, and it is a good time to start thinking long-term. Conservative investing is the way to go—avoid taking risks. You have some positive aspects this year, especially if you are willing to use your creativity. It is time to share your gifts with the world! What are you waiting for? Good times for investments and negotiations are April, May and December."
However, Sally warned that you shouldn't let your career and finances take over too much—and that you ought to be cautious in the early part of the year at work. "Avoid overworking, as your success could become overwhelming. In January, as the sun moves into Aquarius, a work colleague could make dishonest remarks, but other employees will defend you. Signing a legal document in September will expand a business or property," she said.
Pisces can look forward to a creative and enriching 2022 career-wise, which could reap solid rewards.
Bracha predicts, "Your finances may be a bit variable this year. See this as a positive thing encouraging you to be creative. You may have large chunks of money coming in, and then it may be quieter, but don’t be discouraged. Just know that another wave of income is around the corner. If you are willing to try new things, they are likely to pay off for you. Your best months for deal-making and investments are April, June and July."
And Sally agrees, saying, "There is the chance to study and invest an inheritance into something that you’re really interested in, which could lead to a career change."
Penny also advised trying something new when it comes to your career, such as a new qualification or organization: "Journeys in miles and experience take you far. You may join an overseas organization, learn a new language or acquire qualifications, and turning your hobby into your job is recommended. Some Pisceans will find great success and recognition, and all should see financial improvements. Aim high. You have nothing to lose."
