2022 Astrological Moon Calendar +Essential Oils to Use

Bookmark this page and refer to it throughout your 2022 year!

The 2022 Astrological Moon Calendar will give you a snapshot view of the unfolding emotional ebb and flow of events for 2022.

You can use it to get an advance look at the upcoming opportunities available for you, as well as to check in as events unfold on the worldwide scene.

For insight about how things will unfold for you personally pay especial attention to:

Eclipse Moons
Partial Solar April 30
Total Lunar May 15/-16
Partial Solar Oct 25
Total Lunar Nov 7-8

Supermoons
June 14
July 13

New and Full Moons

If any of these Moons are happening in aspect to one of your personal planets you will experience more effect from the celestial event.

Conjunctions and Oppositions to your personal planets usually are the most impactful. These aspects in direct conversation with your Sun and Moon are usually the most important prognosticators for significant change.

Oppositions

Oppositions bring illumination about the planet and the area of your life (house) where it’s located. If you can stay on the high side of the vibration the results from an opposition can be very growth producing and bring welcomed opportunities.

However, if resisted much struggle and suffering can ensue. Look for the opportunities in events, rather than play the victim of external forces operating. Keeping a positive attitude can help you make needed changes that result in improved circumstances for your future.

Conjunctions

Conjunctions represent birth and new beginnings. They are usually more pleasant than oppositions in their effect. The notable exception to this might be a Lunar Eclipse Conjunct your Sun, Moon, or other personal planet. Lunar Eclipses often bring things to a head with dramatic events at the dark of the moon followed by an opportunity for a new beginning/fresh start in the area of your life where they occur. Again, staying open-hearted with a positive mindset of gratitude helps you stay attractive to any potential opportunities.

Essential Oils can be very potent allies for helping you stay positive and elevating your frequency to attract the best outcomes possible. You can’t control what’s happening in life, but you can choose to respond in a way that will be productive and help you make the most of your current and future circumstances.

Important Celestial Events

There are four important celestial events to take note of that greatly impact the 2022 New Year and beyond. These, of course, are in addition to the Eclipses and Super Moons listed in this year's Moon Calendar. Pay especial attention to the dates of  these events as they will have a marked influence for how things will unfold in 2022.

December 19, 2021 - January 29, 2022
Venus Retrograde on December 19 at 26° Capricorn and Stations Direct on January 28 at 11° Capricorn. Venus will be Conjunct to Pluto as she Stations Retrograde. This usually indicates a slow down to reassess things with regard to personal finances, values and material concerns. Venus enters her shadow (the degree to which she will retrograde back to) on November 16/17.

The caveat with this particular Venus Retrograde is her Retrograde Conjunction with Pluto at the degree of the United States Pluto Return. This signifies a major death and rebirth for the United States and the start of a new 248 year cycle for America. This can be the beginning of the end for democracy with slow decay to follow, or a complete renaissance of the democratic form of governance. The Venus Retrograde review will give clues to which it will be.

December 23, 2021
Saturn 11° Aquarius Square Uranus 11° Aquarius - this is the 3rd and final time for this exact square between these two planets. The Square between Saturn and Uranus has brought revolutionary change to established structures. The pair will be within orb of square at 17° just before the November mid-term elections in the United States of America.

December 28, 2021
Mercury enters his shadow (Stations Retrograde - January 14 - February 3, 2022.

October 30, 2022
Mars Stations Retrograde on October 30 at 25° Gemini and Stations Direct on January 12, 2023 at 8° Gemini. There can be tremendous confusion with airing of different points of view. Mars Retrograde is a review of actions taken based upon much misinformation, gossip and hearsay. This period looks ungrounded and volatile. All the air from Gemini fans the flames of the Mars fire. There can be quite a ruckus. A significant opportunity for clearing the air of tensions.

Moon Square Saturn
Moon Trine Neptune
Moon Sextile Pluto (Rx) (vc)
Mercury Stationary Retrograde

The Full Moon in Scorpio always creates a need to dive deep into your own feelings. When a Lunar Eclipse occurs simultaneously with the Scorpio Full Moon, then your desire for rich, deep and meaningful emotional exchanges becomes fraught with a compulsive note that is off the charts. Deep emotions are coming  to the surface for expression and release. Nothing can stand in the way of the realizations set to be exposed. You, and society at large, may be forced to change many things now. Shallow or surface relationships or fixes will not suffice to meet the needs of this moment. There is much that must be purified and purged.

Mars Conjunct Jupiter
Moon Sextile Jupiter
Moon Sextile Mars
Saturn Stationary Retrograde

The Gemini New Moon brings the need for changes and spontaneity. There may be a lot of heightened buzz as people may feel especially motivated to share their feelings and views about current events. Local and community matters gain the most attention. Commonality and banding together gains importance. People’s feeling of safety lies in their open discussion about what matters most to them. This is a time to focus on shared values and what brings harmony rather than focusing on differences and what divides you from others.

Essential Oil to Use: Lemon
Use oils that help focus your mind and free you from any sticky, or overly sentimental emotional attachments. The astringent oils are all good!

  • 23° 24’ Sagittarius Super Full Moon
    Tuesday, June 14, 4:52am PT

Moon Trine Mars
Moon Sextile Saturn (Rx)
Moon Square Neptune

The Sagittarius Moon brings optimism for the future. Higher education and having a goal, or mission to accomplish brings unity to disparate views. You may feel a strong urge to be more open minded and search for greater understanding. This Moon brings optimism. There’s a tendency to believe things will get better. Watch for overly expansive plans as they can get you into trouble. Much unresolved tension can get released with this Super Full Moon. All in all an extremely potent moon promising fulfillment. Think back to what was initiated around the time of the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius on December 3, 2021.

What is a Supermoon?

A Supermoon is referred to as a perigee full Moon by astronomers. When the Moon is at perigee it is at its closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. When that closest point in time coincides within the Moon’s full phase we call it a Supermoon. 

What causes a Supermoon? 

The Moon has a near-point (perigee) and a far-point (apogee). At perigee the Moon appears a little larger (a Supermoon) than usual, while at apogee, the Moon appears a little smaller than usual. A Supermoon may appear bigger and brighter in the sky.

Why are Supermoon’s important?

The Moon’s electromagnetic pull on the poles of the earth and the human body varies as the Moon cycles in its elliptical orbit around the Earth. During a Supermoon this electromagnetic influence is more pronounced. This results in higher tides of the ocean, as well as an intensification of emotions coming up for release.

  • 7° 22' Cancer New Moon
    Wednesday, June 28, 7:52pm PT

Moon Square Jupiter
Sun Square Jupiter
Venus Sextile Jupiter
Moon Sextile Uranus
Neptune Stationary Retrograde

Your feeling of safety is now very much related to your home, the family and related activities such as childcare, nourishment and nurturing of roots. You may be more prone to fluctuation of your emotional moods. Depression can result from thinking too much about things related to childhood issues, or self care matters. Your perceptions about the world are far more emotional and personal than usual. Now can be a time for some sort of new start in your home and family. Perhaps buy new furnishing, or welcome the arrival a baby into your family. With Neptune Station Retrograde some dream, or longed for event may now get revived.

Essential Oil to Use: Rose Otto
Oils that nourish the emotions and support congenial relations in the home, family and with close loved ones.

Venus Trine Saturn (Rx)

The Capricorn Moon always brings a strong need for being useful in society. This is the zodiac sign of accomplishments and achievements. Governments and corporations are represented by this sign. A full moon always brings completion and something worth celebrating. Go BIG and, if you're willing to do the necessary hard work, you can achieve all of your goals and objectives. Look to your own self for the self approval you may seek from outside. Stepping into and shining your own light for others to see is rewarded. Take responsibility for yourself and what shows up for you and let go of any self doubt. You must trust that you are worthy of the success that urges you from within to accomplish great things. Let go of past disappointments. A time begins now when you start to review (and let go of) what you previously valued and reassess what matters most to you now. A time of deep assessment of your values brings tremendous benefits in the future.

Essential Oil to Use: Frankincense
Use the ancient oils and oils commonly used for celebration rituals and rites of passage.

5° 38’ Leo New Moon
Thursday, July 28, 10:55am PT

Moon Trine Jupiter
Jupiter Retrograde (Rx)
Sun Trine Jupiter
Mercury Square Uranus

The Leo Moon brings opportunity from impressing others and getting praise and admiration with mixed results. Though there’s a part of you that may seek, or even crave the limelight, there’s also a part that feels insecure when getting attention. The Leo Moon may bring an opportunity to look at your fear of criticism. Perhaps you need realize that your fear comes from your own inner critics voice. You can create peace within when you turn your inner judge into a worthy ally by accepting and appreciating its feedback for your own improvement. Now is a great time to start a new self nurturance program. Give yourself the attention you seek outside. With Jupiter Retrograde you can review your own thought patterns and the emotions seeding them to great effect.

Essential Oil to Use: Patchouli
Essential oils that spark your passion and creative fires.

Your emotions can feel much more conflicted and complex than usual.

This Aquarius Moon may bring gatherings with like minded others that can help ameliorate and give a positive outlet for your emotions. Pursuing and expressing common future visions with others can help you deal with the negative emotions like fear, anger and jealousy that can surface now.

It is better to trust life and let it run its own way, not everything must be according to our expectations.

The Lunar Total Eclipse in Taurus brings issues of self respect to the surface. Your emotional need for stability gets challenged by the pressures building for change that needed to happen yesterday. In Taurus your feelings of self worth come from material things and the seeking of material things. The Taurus Eclipse brings issues related to your genuine sense of self worth not predicated on material values, but rather for spiritual values like love of home, family, country and the world at large. You may be getting a crash course in self acceptance of who you are, not what you have. A tremendous opportunity for the cleansing and release of false values.
