Year of the Tiger is here! Find out what’s in store for you!

2022 marks the start of the second of your three seed-planting years. In your 12-year cycle, this is the height of spring: The weather is perfect, and it feels good to be in the fields putting seeds into the ground. This year, you're trying new things. You might be renovating the house, moving back into an office, or making new friends. Your life will now settle down into its new comforting routine.

In the water Tiger year, there's a great deal of focus on your general well-being. This year, treat yourself with as much kindness and consideration as you give to others. You'll need time for rest and recuperation, and to have a vacation every once in a while. You are still quite busy this year, but it's time to prioritize self-care.

In 2022, you may learn new things, go back to school, or take online courses. You might discover a new hobby or interest. And you could meet some very interesting people who share your passions.

Overall, the word for Ox is “patience.” You've made some recent changes, and now it's time to see what manifests.


There could be some ups and downs in your relationships in 2022. This area of your life is where you will be putting most of your attention during the water Tiger year. Ox, you appreciate stability. So when people move away or make major changes, it can have a big effect on you. A close friendship could change significantly as your friend gets married or moves across the country. If you're in a committed relationship, you may find it challenging to spend time together as your schedules are out of sync.

The bright spot is for those Ox natives who are looking for love. You may have a golden opportunity during the water Tiger year. You can find someone who is utterly fascinating and finds you to be the same.

March 18 brings a full moon where a meeting could potentially lead to romance. You could stroll out together in the moonlight. Ox, a playful banter could have the two of you talking all night long. And who knows? You could end up having breakfast together!

Around the time of the new moon on June 28, communication improves between you and a special someone. This is like a balm on hurt feelings, and a healing can take place that strengthens this connection.

At the lunar eclipse on November 8, some small mistake could be blown out of proportion. Ox, to keep from blowing the lid off of your love relationship, focus on compassionate understanding. Be the first to apologize, even if it's not your fault.

Family & Friends

Ox, you are generally healthy, especially when you watch what you eat. The year of the water Tiger brings support (and some challenges) for the positive habits you've already established. This year, your routines may be influenced by others. You may be encouraged to indulge in time off, or to skip your workout more often than usual. On the other hand, this year you could find your inner chef.

For you, Ox, the solar eclipse on April 30 puts an emphasis on flexibility and exercise routines. You might take up yoga or a gymnastics-related calisthenics program. You can make visible improvement at this time.

The full moon on September 10 may reveal that it's time for you to get back on the health track. You may want to start a bullet journal to keep a record of your progress. This is also a good time to increase the amount of leafy greens in your diet.


Ox, you may have gotten a new job over the last year or so. If this is the case, you'll be solidifying your position this year. But the year of the water Tiger can bring more changes to the company you work for and the way you do your job. You may be returning to an office this year. Or, with a permanent work-from-home situation, you could decide to change residences. It's a good idea to strengthen your skill set this year. Look at taking short courses, especially on technology, communication, or marketing.

The new moon on March 2 brings possible recognition from your supervisor or other people in your industry. This is not a time to be shy, Ox. Stand up and accept the applause! Later, you can parlay this goodwill into a better position for more status, benefits, and even a better salary.

Around the time of the lunar eclipse on May 15, the spotlight will be on you. If you own a business, you can connect with a powerful mentor or influencer.

However, during the water Tiger year, any additional money coming in from your job could easily find its way out again for travel plans, education, or home renovation projects.

The full moon on June 14 can bring a new source of revenue. You may have been working behind the scenes on a side business or an investment plan. The seeds planted over the two weeks following this eclipse can bring you benefits in a few months.
