Astrology and tarot can guide you through what – or who – is on the cards for you in 2022, with your love horoscope for the next 12 months.
Read on for your dating forecast for 2022 ahead, with a tarot card for each star sign, what this means for the year, and the signs that could bring some romance to your life.
March 21 to April 20
Tarot card for Aries: King of Swords
Your head rules your heart this year, which makes a change.
The King of Swords brings a more thought-through and planned approach to your relationships. You compartmentalise them, judge them and bring the appropriate time and energy to them as a result. It’s kind of strategic, but it gets results.
You realise that you have more control than you thought, and that you can shape things how you wish them to be. You lead the changes you want to happen.
Air signs (particularly slightly older ones) are key for you in 2022 – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. People who challenge you intellectually, make you laugh, and keep you on your toes.
April 21 to May 21
Tarot card for Taurus: Seven of Cups
You feel lost in a daydream in 2022, with the imaginative Seven of Cups, and your fantasy love life and wishful desires take on a new power.
You want to try the Law of Attraction to bring a vision of love you have to life, to manifest the type of dream lover and relationship you fantasise about. And you can do this, you’re ruled by Venus after all.
March and July mark turning points in your love life fortunes.
Water signs are major for you in 2022 – Scorpio, Cancer or Pisces. People who are creative, dreamy, compassionate, and loving. You yearn for intimacy, and these guys bring it.
May 22 to June 21
Tarot card for Gemini: Eight of Swords
The Eight of Swords is a pattern-breaking, habit-dropping, prison-breaking kind of card, all about recognising our own self-limiting attitudes or behaviours and calling them out.
When you change your mind, you change your life. The buck stops with yours truly in your love life dilemmas. Get your head straight, and the rest will follow. You’ve gotten into a rut, and you’re about to climb out and run free again.
Air signs are big for you in 2022 – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. People who represent a different type of partner for you than in the past, and make you feel renewed, hopeful, and like things can be different.
June 22 to July 23
Tarot card for Cancer: Ten of Wands
The Ten of Wands is a pressure, feeling overwhelmed, workaholic type card, so it implies that whatever you’re doing here… do less of it. Take the heat down, chill out, stop overdoing or overthinking it, be relaxed and let things unfold at their own natural pace.
Sometimes it’s when you’re not looking, that the best things happen. So take your eye away from this life area and be surprised by the good things that occur.
Watch out for fire signs – Aries, Leo and Sagittarius – this year. People who help you to chill out and let go and feel safe just by being with them, in their company.
July 24 to August 23
Tarot card for Leo: Knight of Coins
Commitment is a major theme this year. You are not interested in playing the field, messing about, notching up conquests or simply pursuing flighty romances.
The Knight of Coins brings a much more mature, loyal, steadfast and partnership need to the fore. You want a true life partner, to protect and be protected by. Someone who is sensible, reliable, and ready to help you face life and build a wonderful home and lifestyle together.
Earth signs are major for you in 2022 – Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. People who are serious, hardworking, trustworthy, and strong. You want someone with backbone and who knows who they are.
August 24 to September 23
Tarot card for Virgo: Six of Swords
You are willing to let go of the past completely, whether that is exes or flings that you still keep on a string, or expectations or comparisons to how things used to be, or a grudge you still nurse.
The Six of Swords brings a sense of clean slate to 2022, in all ways, and you might even find yourself moving away or onwards physically in some way, which impacts your love life.
Air signs are big for you in 2022 – Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. There is someone new on the horizon whom you encounter as part of a journey or location change. They are new on the scene and help you move on too.
