As we enter the third year of the Aquarian Decade, there’s disruption on every dimension, from outer space to the deep sea to the heart of the disappearing forests and jungles.

Many of us have stopped asking, “When will things go back to normal?” That was a common refrain of 2020 and early 2021. But as the pandemic wore on, it seemed safer to try to find acceptance of these surreal conditions, or at least, to be patient.

It’s hard to describe something you’ve never experienced before. But the planetary lineup of 2022 invites us to get creative, investigative, and script some answers. Adopting an experimental attitude—or what performance experts call a “growth mindset”—will help us through.

As expansive Jupiter moves through healing Pisces and pioneering Aries, and the lunar nodes ripple across the Taurus/Scorpio axis to transform our material and spiritual lives, it’s our turn to write a new script for 2022.
