Happy New Year!

January 2, 2022 at 10:33 am PST is a new Moon in Capricorn. Earth sign Capricorn rules the 10th house of career, finances, and the practical matters of life. The new Moon, Sun, Venus, and Pluto are in Capricorn to clear out, beautify, and get organized for the New Year.

This new Moon begins Metal Ox month, the final lunar month of 2021 Metal Ox year. In Feng Shui, Metal represents a shiny, pared-down, and pristine environment. Therefore, this double Metal Ox time is ideal to do a major purge, and a thorough cleaning to be ready when opportunities come your way in 2022 Tiger year.

Fortunately, the new Moon and Sun trine Uranus in Taurus. It’s easier and less upsetting to make needed changes in your personal environment. As you pare down and release, there can be discoveries about yourself and others, and you can see the past in a new light. Plus, Mercury newly in Aquarius, and Jupiter newly in Pisces, pave the way for clear communication with increased empathy and kindness.

Chinese New Year of the Tiger starts on the next new Moon, late night January 31 here in California but February 1 in China. Join me for my online 2022 Water Tiger talk on Sunday January 9 at 2 pm PST. Come with your questions about the fortunes of all 12 zodiac signs, and take away Feng Shui tips for a new Water year.

Avoid chaos in Tiger year by including these 2022 Mercury retrograde dates in your plans:
January 14 – February 3
Mercury retrograde in Air sign Aquarius and Earth sign Capricorn to bring ideas into reality by completing projects and following up on communication.

May 10 – June 3
Mercury retrograde in Air sign Gemini, a sign ruled by Mercury. Time to slow down, stay steady, and not become overwhelmed by too many options.

September 9 – October 2
Mercury retrograde in Air sign Libra to focus on communication in relationships of all kinds, especially partnerships. Be the peacemaker if others lost their temper.

Conscious and grateful cleaning, practical focus, and completion of projects to make way for the Tiger are beneficial during this double Metal Ox lunar month, and are most empowering for Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo; Water signs Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio; and those born in Rat, Ox, Snake, and Phoenix (Rooster) years. Contact me for your astrology forecast for 2022 Tiger year, the time to bravely break free and take risks.

Happy new Moon,
