The next year of 2022 is upon us. Some of you are probably nervous considering the last two years we’ve had, but that isn’t necessary. With this tarot pick a card, you can get a peek into good fortune and make sure it happens or avoid obstacles coming your way.
It’s easy: all you have to do is select one of the piles of cards above.
After you select your cards, scroll down to your pile or choose below.
In this reading, I’m using the Rider-Waite tarot, the Work Your Light oracle deck, and the Moonology oracle deck (these are affiliate links that support my tarot reading). I’ll be drawing three cards for each major area of the year: life, romance, and career.
Now let’s find out what’s coming your way in 2022.
Pile 1: Gold Butterfly
The first card in your spread is The World, Reversed. It seems as if your life is going to be turned upside down in 2022. For some of you, this is a good sign, and for others, you might just want to crawl under the covers and wait until 2023 before you come out again.
There’s been a lot of changes in the world around us and the way we view life has been upended. However, even in the worst of circumstances, you can use these world-shaking events as an opportunity to try something new for yourself.
Instead of fearing change, see the next year of your life as a way to do something different. This is an excellent year for you to break patterns that no longer serve you and give yourself a fresh start. Look at what you have or would like to have and then think critically about how you can change it to be in your favor.
When it comes to love, your card, Awakening, has the wisdom message of “Energetic updates. A new way of being. Integration.” Sounds like a promising sign for your love life, right?
I believe that for those of you in a relationship, it’s going to evolve into something more wonderful than it ever was before. You will both be more mindful of each other and feel a connection deep in your hearts.
For those of you who are single, you have the option of meeting a soulmate or twin flame in 2022. This match will help elevate your consciousness to a higher level and you’ll find that your relationship is deeply tied to your higher purpose.
Anyone who has picked this pile that’s thinking of moving in together with a significant other can also feel confident that the universe has your back and it will be a positive experience for you.
The overall energy here is one of togetherness, and that bodes well for any stage of the relationship – including a potential engagement or marriage.
Wow! With a card like Blue Moon, you have an amazing possibility to make your dreams come true. Whether it’s a traditional career or a passion, this is a rare year of possibility for you. Not all world-shaking shifts are bad. Sometimes, major change is what’s needed to see your dreams to the final stage.
The wisdom message of this card is “Believe in the impossible.” I sense that you’ve been feeling disappointed with some aspect of your career, but you weren’t sure how to change it to be in your favor. That’s one reason why major life changes, like the one you’ll be experiencing this year, can also open up new doors you didn’t realize existed.
Allow yourself to dream and see what’s possible. You may even feel the confidence to open a door and take a leap of faith.
Pile 2: Blue Butterfly
For you, 2022 is going to be a year where you invest in your future. Your card is the Seven of Pentacles. The man here has planted a garden and is waiting to see what will grow. There’s a good chance his hard work will bring him abundance, but he must be aware of bad weather that could ruin his harvest.
You need to think like a farmer this year. What is something in your life that needs more attention? Now is the time to invest your energy into improvement.
But something to be aware of in all this hard work is how much simple joy you can derive from it. Even though farming is hard, many find it fulfilling because of the small steps they take each day. And some farmers take on special projects unique to their homestead which interest them.
Choose projects which personally matter to you so you can feel the pride of incremental progress.
There’s a major change for this pile when it comes to romance. Your card is Break the Chain with the wisdom message of “Ancestral patterns. Healing. Rewriting the future.” That means bad habits in relationships are going to fall away.
For those of you in a bad relationship, you’ll find the strength to seek your independence and feel emotional catharsis by doing so. Before, you may have felt as if you were stuck and destined to be in a disappointing or abusive relationship. No more.
Those who are single may find the confidence to put themselves out there. I definitely sensed a “glow up” for some of you, so don’t be surprised if you start making major changes in your appearance that will inspire courage to put yourself out there.
Let’s not forget those in good relationships either. An issue that has or will come up in your relationship will be resolved, and it’s going to make your romance stronger than it ever was before. Because lovers become family, see this rewriting of the future as healing together.
When it comes to career, 2022 is also a wait-and-see year like so much of your life. That’s because your card is the New Moon in Pisces with the wisdom message of “Meditate and contemplate.” You’re getting ready to make major changes in your career and passions, but you still need some time to think it over.
I sense that you want to make sure you’re in alignment with your higher purpose. Because of this, you want to meditate on all the possibilities before making any life-changing decisions.
To work with the gardening energy of the Seven of Pentacles, consider trying out different possibilities this year without committing to any one of them. This will give you critical data on how it will integrate into your life when you make a final decision.
Pile 3: Red Butterfly
This year is going to be one where you focus on making the right decisions for yourself. Your first card is the King of Swords and he represents the proper use of rationality.
There’s been a lot of chaos in the world and you’ve probably had to make or will need to make important changes. But these changes can be scary and it’s easy to feel yourself emotionally compromised and unable to act. However, that isn’t going to be the case for you this year.
Lean into your wit and even be a bit ruthless in your thinking. That’s because you’re able to see your life with better clarity and understand what needs to be done. That also means you can act with more ambition and purpose, so there’s a lot of progress that can be made in many different areas.
The second card in your spread is Keepers of the Earth with the wisdom message of “You are not alone. Ancient ancestors stand beside you.” No wonder why you feel so capable in critical thinking this year!
But what does that mean for romance? For those who are in a relationship, you’re going to feel more emotionally invested in each other’s families and backgrounds. This is promising for new relationships hoping to transition into a more permanent commitment like marriage.
As for those who are single, I don’t really see any sign you’re going to enter into a relationship this year. Rather, your relationship status is irrelevant to this particular card. Instead, you’re going to feel an inner sense of worth that will carry you into better social situations – including romantic ones.
Use this to your advantage to properly vet those you wish to date.
The last card in your spread is the Fixed Moon with the wisdom message of “Hold your vision.” Because your spread is so focused on stability and seeing things as they really are, I believe that this year will be one of improvement and tweaking when it comes to career and other life passions.
That’s not to say you won’t invest emotionally in these areas, but that you’re going to do a bit of housekeeping. This will help you to use your critical thinking to see if you’re following the right path. For those who are, you’ll then move to make the most of your situation.
But for those who do want to change, you’ll decide on a vision and then tenaciously fight for it. Once it’s in your grasp, you’re not going to let it go. Like the King of Swords, you’ll do everything you can to protect what’s yours.
And you might need to. This strong energy tends to come out when needed most. You probably won’t have an easy year, but it’s not going to be a year that takes from you. Instead, you’re going to stand tall and strong.
