In many ways, the year 2022 is a brand-new year, as its themes constitute a significant divergence from previous years. It will be full of revolutionary personal breakthroughs, innovative art-making, lightness and joy, prosperity, and expansion, according to numerology and astrology. In short, there’s a lot to suggest that 2022 will provide us with the pleasure we’ve always craved—and perhaps even more so now than ever.
Let’s take a look at some of the major energetic shifts that will occur in 2022 and how you may utilise Feng Shui to generate this energy in your home and life.
WHY IS 2022 SHAPING UP TO BE SUCH A SPECIAL YEAR?
IN NUMEROLOGY, THIS YEAR IS A 6
The Universal Year 6’s energy is heavily influenced by Feng Shui: home, love, creative power, and balance are all highlighted in this number. According to numerology, this is a wonderful moment to increase your energy and confidence, as well as creating a haven where you may feel grounded and ready to take large creative risks.
IN ASTROLOGY, IT’S A BUSY TIME
Jupiter will spend a lot of time in Pisces in 2022. (now through May 10 and then back again from October 28 to December 20). The planet’s themes of luck, expansion, gift-giving and blooming can really show in this emotional sign. Jupiter hasn’t been “reaching its metaphorical wings” of fortune as widely in the last two years, but in 2022, a great sense of magic and infinity could arrive.
In April, Jupiter will align with Neptune in the sign of Pisces, a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence that astrologers predict will usher in revolutions in art and creative self-expression.
The North Node’s journey to Taurus (earthy, enjoyable, physical, wealthy, and rewarding) and the South Node’s move to Scorpio (emotional, passionate, and mysterious) are two additional major astrological shifts that could leave us searching for new ways to connect to the Earth and our emotions.
IT’S THE YEAR OF THE TIGER IN THE CHINESE CALENDAR
Tiger years are regarded to be forward-thinking, successful, abundant, powerful, and highly energetic in Chinese astrology. For the year 2022, this isn’t a poor source of energy.
IT HAS A HEAVENLY COLOR LINKED WITH IT
In 2022, even the Pantone Color of the Year is optimistic. “Veri Peri,” Pantone’s blue-violet, is a periwinkle that shouts divine inspiration. Very Peri portrays a lively, cheerful attitude and dynamic presence that fosters brave creativity and innovative expression.
HOW TO BRING THIS BENEVOLENT VIBE INTO YOUR HOME
So, what does this mean for you and your home? We may take advantage of the new year’s boundless potential, enthusiasm, and abundance by applying ideas from the ancient philosophy of Feng Shui. Here are a few effective methods for getting started:
NOTE HOW YOU FEEL IN YOUR OWN HOME
This is a simple exercise that you should undertake at the start of the year. Take a walk through your home and sit in each room, simply watching it. Ask yourself, “How do I feel?” as you go. You may get a sense of what changes will have the most influence on your home and life by really feeling into each space.
The idea is to make your home feel “at home,” which can be as easy as cleaning or replacing light bulbs, or as complex as building a wall of your artwork. This year, follow your instincts and see where they lead you.
INCLUDING ENERGY CLEANSE IN YOUR CLEANING ROUTINE IS A GOOD IDEA
Creating a fast energy-clearing ritual that you can execute once a week is an excellent way to keep your home gleaming. I like to incorporate it into my weekly house cleaning routine.
Simple things like burning incense in each room, lighting a candle (I like to place my candle on a plate and surround it with sea salt to boost the energy-clearing power), burning a few bay leaves from the spice rack like incense, or diffusing your favourite essential oil can help you clear your energy.
REMOVE ALL TYPES OF CLUTTER
You knew it was going to be on here! You may make room for more expanded energy by removing clutter. You make space for possibilities, love, and abundance to flourish all around you.
Besides cleaning and decluttering your home, now is an excellent time to prioritise your desires and focus on what is most important to you. Remove any extra chores that keep you busy but don’t provide you with any benefits, as well as any commitments that make you feel overwhelmed and overextended.
DEVELOP YOUR ARTISTIC VISION
Are you ready to start or grow your creative business? Because all signals point to a creative year in 2022, now is a great time to make a vision board (physically or online) for what you want to accomplish. Examine all aspects of your visions for the coming year. What are the aims and experiences that you want to pursue? Start looking through periodicals and the internet for the images to reflect your dreams, and start planning an exciting year of invention.
Let your vision inspire you to take tons of inspired action this year since it’s all about big dreams and big actions.
FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME, CONNECT TO THE EARTH
Given the earthy quality of Taurus’ North Node, this is an excellent time to cultivate your own food. Your garden will help you ground and connect to the outside from the comfort of your own home, besides providing you with fresh produce.
Taking care of a garden, whether it’s an outdoor garden, an indoor setting, or a windowsill herb display, can be beneficial to your mind, body, and spirit.
CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT CONDUCIVE TO FLOW
Developing a flow state can assist you in realising your creative potential. Now is an excellent time to organise your workplace, computer, and phone so that you can work more efficiently.
MAKE SELF-CARE A PRIORITY
With all of the bustle and motion of a Tiger year, the best advice I can provide is to schedule self-care and sleep time as if it were a job.
It’s easy to stay up late, skip lunch, or otherwise put your health on the back burner when you’re inspired or motivated. The goal is to prioritise self-care in order to create a life that makes you feel fabulous foremost. Slight changes like blackout curtains in the bedroom, or daily reminders to go for a walk, may not seem revolutionary, but they have far-reaching consequences.
EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT HUES
Another fantastic technique to harness bright, radiant energy in the new year is to bring in some new colours. Buying new multi colored pillow covers, painting a wall or a room in a colour you’ve never considered before, such as a pink dining room, getting a set of markers or Sharpies to use a full rainbow of options while brainstorming and making lists, and even wearing new colours that appeal to you are all possibilities.
For infusing our lives with colour energy, starting with our favourite hues is a terrific place to start. You can then pursue your interests and desires, reaching for colours that make you feel good. In addition, 2022 is an excellent year to learn more about colour therapy!
MOVING FORWARD TO THE YEAR 2022
Every year, I choose a theme and a focus word. The year I resolved to make happiness my top priority was the most successful year of my life. That will be my theme for 2022, and you are welcome to join me by utilising these suggestions. I wish you a year filled with joy, contentment, and plenty of rewards!
