Aquarius, you’re totally out of this world. As the last air sign of the zodiac, you’re an innovative visionary who’s always a few years ahead of the curve. Known for your non-conformist spirit, it’s no surprise that when it comes to intimacy, you tend to be a bit cerebral. Sometimes, fantasizing about sex is even better than actually having it and that’s totally fine. At the very end of 2020, Saturn — the planet of commitment and responsibilities — moved into your zodiac sign, where it will remain until 2023.
So what does that mean for you? Basically, you’re finding confidence like never before. Rather than focusing on making other people happy, you’re prioritizing your wants, needs and expectations and, subsequently, connecting with people who actually support your spirit. This is a big deal, Saturn won’t be back in your zodiac sign for another 29 years, so the changes you’re instituting now are going to define this next chapter of your life. Perhaps you’ll link up with a totally unexpected partner? Or maybe you’ll trade the monogamous relationship structure for a more open dynamic? Or perhaps you’ll double-down on personal pleasure, prioritizing your independence, freedom, and exploration without external obligations? However, if you choose to celebrate desire, make sure it honestly and accurately reflects your innate spirit. Keep in mind that your planetary ruler, Uranus, is associated with technology. The latest revolutions in toys and gadgets will be sure to impress even the most stoic Aquarius. In fact, the biggest issue isn’t getting turned on, it will actually be turning the goodies off and putting them away.
What happened this year between May 13 and June 20? What was going on in your life? How did you feel? During this brief five-week period, Jupiter — the planet of abundance — was beginning to journey through Pisces, marking a powerful time of transformation. Once Jupiter went retrograde, it glided backward into Aquarius, where it remains until December 28, 2021. Basically, Pisces, if you feel like a positive experience was cut-short… it was, but I have great news for you. In 2022, Jupiter will finish what it started. For you, this means you’ll be starting a new 12-year cycle relating to identity and opportunity. This is about connecting with your truth, inviting yourself to dig deeper and setting intentions that align with your core values. Whether you’re embracing your independence or making serious commitments, 2022 is guaranteed to be a year you remember forever.
Of course, this means you’ll be in your feels — but wait, don’t stress. You’re the most psychic, empathetic sign of the zodiac, so having big emotions isn’t necessarily a bad thing. You will, however, need to find outlets to process these internal experiences, which is all the more reason to tap into your raw sexual power. Did you know that you can catalyze a spiritual awakening through orgasm? Sex magic is the perfect way for you to connect with the body, soul and spirit. Don’t be afraid to experiment with synchronizing your extrasensory abilities with your physical desires. Remember, you have the ability to transform your bedroom into an ocean — powerful, vast, limitless — and dive headfirst into sensuality. Also, note that Pisces is associated with the feet, so when in doubt, a sultry foot massage will be sure to make these mermaids sing.
Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, is known to be passionate, enthusiastic and impulsive. These thrill-seeking fire signs are always striving to be the best. Thankfully, there are some exciting opportunities to harness your magic and unlock your full and complete potential in 2022. On May 10, Jupiter — the planet of luck and fortune — will enter Aries for the first time since 2011, enabling you to expand your reach. Although Jupiter will move back into Pisces briefly at the end of 2022 — between October 28 and December 20 — Jupiter’s motion through Aries will mark a fabulous time to maximize pleasure in virtually every aspect of your life. Jupiter in your own zodiac sign is extremely auspicious — this kicks off a brand new 12-year cycle that is defined by growth, opportunity and extraordinary serendipity.
As we ramp up for next year, this is an excellent time to begin setting long-term goals relating to your hopes, dreams and aspirations. Once Jupiter leaves Aries in 2023, it won’t be back until 2034, so don’t let this opportunity pass you by. Additionally, when it comes to matters of the heart and libido, don’t be surprised if you’re suddenly inspired to experiment with sex in unexpected places.
In 2022, this Earth sign will be experiencing lots of powerful transformation thanks to the eclipses. At the end of 2021, eclipses will move into the Taurus-Scorpio axis — on four occasions in 2022: April 30, May 16, October 25 and November 8 — and Taurus will be undergoing a profound metamorphosis. The last time the eclipses occupied your zodiac sign was in 2012, so it’s been about a decade since you’ve connected to the concept of “fate” in this capacity.
Change is a beautiful thing, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s easy, especially for steadfast Taurus who deeply value consistency and continuity. The best way to ride out this monumental year is by connecting with your celestial ruler Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Taurus is known to be the most sensual sign of the zodiac. This seductive Earth sign enjoys tactile experiences that stimulate the senses through touch, sound, taste and sight. Nothing is more grounding than physicality, so Taurus’ desire leans toward luxurious experiences such as lighting soft candles, running an oil-filled bath or caressing deliciously scented moisturizer is the perfect way to relax and unwind. This sign is aroused by slow massages, mouth-watering aphrodisiacs and smooth, crisp linens. Also, it should be noted that Taurus’ most erogenous zone is the neck and throat.
Gemini is symbolized by the twins and are known for their notorious duality. This air sign loves to have many balls in the air and thankfully, that’s what 2022 is all about. Mercury — Gemini’s planetary ruler — will go retrograde on four occasions in 2022: January 14, May 10, September 9 and December 29. This is the maximum number of times the planet of communication can spin backward in a calendar year. Each Mercury retrograde cycle lasts for approximately three weeks so, during this period, Gemini should go above and beyond to make sure they’re not missing any important details, as misunderstandings are often the primary calamity during Mercury’s reversal.
Mars will also go retrograde in 2022 — a backward motion that will begin on October 30 and continue until January 12, 2023. Mars has the rarest backward cycle — this red planet only reverses every two years, so it’s especially notable that this motion happens to take place in your own zodiac sign. The best way to prepare for this is to tap into innate verbosity. This air sign is renowned for its clever nature, and likewise, is aroused by sexy banter, witticisms and lots of experimentation. In the year ahead, try incorporating erotic games into your foreplay. Whether you’re playing strip poker or something more elaborate, linking pleasure and play is the perfect fit for this mischievous air sign.
Like your animal symbol, the crab, Cancers are known to walk on their side, dodging unpleasant situations through a somewhat indirect approach. There’s some extraordinarily lucky astrology coming your way in 2022. In other words, you may not want to shuffle away from this. Throughout next year, Jupiter –the planet of expansion and fortune — will be cruising through Pisces, a like-minded water sign. It will illuminate the area of your chart associated with travel, adventure and exciting opportunities. Before the advent of the telescope that enabled stargazers to identify far-out planets in our solar system, giant Jupiter was actually the ruler of Pisces, so this planet is extremely delighted to be cruising through this sign. Interestingly, Neptune — the modern ruler of Pisces — is also in Pisces.
For the first time since the mid-1800s, Jupiter and Neptune will be joining forces in Pisces on April 8, 2022. This is major and marks the beginning of new explorations in virtually every aspect of your life, so be sure to note this on your calendar. Although this celestial milestone will only last a single day, the impact will be felt for many weeks. Likewise, this is an excellent time to tap into your innate passions and desires. While you tend to safeguard their emotions in daily life, Cancers’ biggest thrill is letting loose. When you finally feel comfortable removing your armor, you expose your raw truths and pleasure, which is much kinkier than meets the eye. To work up to that level of intimacy, you need to build trust through physical closeness such as cuddling, spooning and hand-holding. When in doubt, the moon is an excellent way to track your sensual wax-and-wane. Ruled by the moon, this celestial satellite plays a major role in every Cancer’s life, so don’t be surprised if the natural rhythm of la luna influences your own carnal urges.
Symbolized by the lion, regal Leos are zodiac royalty. Leos are known for their larger-than-life personalities, unabashed creativity and their propensity to perform. In late 2020, Saturn — the planet of rules and responsibilities — moved into Aquarius, which is Leo’s opposite sign, illuminating the area of Leos’ chart associated with partnership and commitments. 2021 was a major time for celestial lions who have been making profound changes in all aspects of life to accommodate new opportunities. If you have yet to say “I do” or “buh-bye,” don’t worry, this narrative will continue into 2022, with attention shifting from July and early-August Leos to mid-August Leos. By the time Saturn leaves Aquarius in 2023, all Leos will have experienced this radical transformation. It takes Saturn 29 years to complete an orbit, so the changes catalyzed by this ringed-gas giant are truly built to last. But don’t let it stress you out.
Fundamentally, this is all about embracing your personal main character energy and — as the star of every show — you’re all about that life. When it comes to sex, extravagant lions love to show off. These theatrical fire signs love to entertain an audience, which is why the biggest turn-on for any Leo is to feel wanted. Leo is associated with the heart and spine. Consider getting down in a seated position, with Leo transforming an ordinary chair into a lusty throne. With so many changes taking place, this is about finding your moment in the spotlight.
In traditional astrology, the Virgo constellation represents the virgin archetype — antiquated mythology that is both irrelevant and incorrect. Though it’s true that Virgo has youthful qualities, this sign is actually horny. In fact, Virgos are constantly thinking about sex. They want to know who’s doing it, who’s already done it and when they’re going to do it next. Good thing that, in 2022, there will be plenty of opportunities for Virgo to take their crush to the next level. One of the most powerful astrological signatures of next year is Jupiter — the planet of luck and fortune — moving through Pisces. Jupiter expands whatever it touches and as it cruises across Pisces’ domain — Virgo’s opposite sign — it will magnify the area of Virgo’s chart associated with alliances, partnerships and serious commitments.
Most notably, on April 12, Jupiter will join forces with dreamy Neptune, sending shockwaves through this chart and unlocking unexpected fantasies. Is there something you desire that you’ve been a bit too shy to act on? This is the time to do it. Both before and after this monumental day, you’ll feel inspired to prioritize your pleasure. You’re a creature of habit. If you’re craving a certain level of intimacy, that shouldn’t be something you experience once in a blue moon, but rather, a practice that is embedded into your routine. Another important thing to note: Virgos are associated with the stomach, so gentle caresses on Virgo’s abdomen are guaranteed to have an explosive effect.
Represented by the scales, Libra strives for harmony in all relationships. Likewise, when it comes to matters of the bedroom, this elegant air sign appreciates dynamics that are fair, balanced and inherently reciprocal. Ruled by Venus — the planet of love and beauty — Libras aspire to treat their partners like works of art, adorning their minds, bodies and souls. Fortunately, this year will be sure to revolutionize Libra’s relationships. On May 10, Jupiter — the planet of abundance — will enter Aries for the first time since 2011, activating the area of your chart associated with serious, committed relationships. Although Jupiter will cruise back into Pisces briefly towards the end of the year — between October 28 and December 20, 2022 — this lucky planet will enable you to connect with others in new and extremely meaningful ways.
Interestingly, this is the halfway point of whatever started when Jupiter was cruising through Libra in 2017. What narrative has transformed over the past six years? How can you continue to emphasize pleasure, partnership and passion within your interpersonal bonds? Although Libras are extraordinarily generous, it’s important to remember that everything, including intimacy, its a give-and-take. Libra, you can’t be the only one putting in the work. When it comes to counterbalancing, what position captures this ethos better than the classic 69? When in doubt, don’t be afraid to flip upside down and look at life from a different perspective.
Like salt and pepper, peanut butter and jelly, Boris and Natasha, Scorpios and sexuality go hand-in-hand. In fact, this infamous water sign is closely connected to its spellbinding sensuality. Named after the elusive scorpion, mysterious Scorpios dwell in the shadows, unapologetically weaving through the dark shadows and erotic, taboo passions most other zodiac signs are too scared to indulge. Scorpios aren’t afraid to push boundaries and, fortunately, in 2022, there will be lots of opportunities to challenge the status quo.
In November 2021, the eclipses will shift into the Taurus-Scorpio domain and, likewise, all 2022 eclipses will be on your axis. These eclipses — which will take place on April 30, May 16, October 25 and November 8, 2022 — will invite growth relating to self and others, inviting you to transform the ways in which you relate to the world. What’s more, eclipses are linked to destiny, so don’t be surprised if things feel super fated over the next 12 months. Further, Jupiter — the planet of luck and fortune — will be moving through Pisces, a like-minded water sign, throughout 2022. It will activate the area of your chart associated with love, romance and creativity. What does that mean? You can most certainly look forward to lots of crushes, trysts and butterflies in your stomach in the year ahead. With Pluto — the planet of the underworld — as your celestial ruler, don’t be afraid to experiment with kinkier sex, such as role-play and bondage.
Adventurous Sagittarians are known for their fun-loving, thrill-seeking spirit. Symbolized by the archer, this fire sign is tantalized by new experiences including those in the bedroom. Philosophical in nature, Sagittarians view intimacy as an opportunity for discovery and exploration, so they tend to be quite playful in the sack. Perhaps the most important astrological happening of 2022 will occur on May 10, when Jupiter enters Aries, a like-minded fire sign. Although Jupiter will briefly re-enter Pisces at the end of 2022, its motion through Aries will activate a new era of life, defined by exploration, expansion and growth.
Don’t be surprised if you end up connecting with a long-distant lover who ends up taking you halfway around the world. While other signs might be reluctant to get involved with someone so far away, you couldn’t be happier. What’s more, this may be an excellent opportunity to get down in unexpected places. Outdoor intimacy is a huge turn-on for Sagittarian lovers. Tap into your intrigue and join the mile-high club.
Capricorns are the bosses of the zodiac and they do a great job making sure everyone knows it. In 2022, Saturn will continue its slow journey through Aquarius, your neighboring sign. For you, motion through this domain activates the area of your chart associated with values, including money, finances and personal assets. Fundamentally, the year ahead is about aligning your bank account with your priorities. Remember, the most valuable resource is your time, so make sure you’re spending it on the experiences you truly want.
In other words, if your entire day is eaten up by exhausting, draining obligations, maybe it’s time to infuse your schedule with a bit more pleasure? Despite your stoic demeanor, you’re definitely among the kinkiest of the zodiac signs. Much like their long-term goals, ambitious sea-goats approach sex with dedication, tenacity and sensual intensity. Sex and masturbation are the perfect ways for this serious earth sign to relax, unwind and have a little fun. When it comes to matters of the libido, a Capricorn partner is deeply erotic and takes much pride in their ability to both give and receive. Interestingly, there’s a bit of a competitive twist to Capricorns’ sexuality, so this is a competitive nature to Capricorns’ sexuality. However, so long as this lust is counterbalanced, 2022 is the perfect year to turn up the heat.
