As 2022 arrives, the stars above will shine more brightly on some celebrities than others.
The planets are always moving and, as they do, they bring new opportunities and challenges to our lives. Eclipses and planetary shifts can trigger some stormy weather, but sometimes it’s best to dance in the rain.
So, which celebrities will have major hurdles to overcome, strive for a rebirth or cause us to worry? Good thing I’m a pop culture astrologer and always deliver the astrolo-tea. Take a peek to see if your fav will need a little TLC in my definitive list.
While 2022 will definitely put Gemini powerhouse Kanye West in the spotlight, it might not be in ways that he is hoping for. Intense eclipses that highlight his mental and physical health will begin in the year to come, which may cause him to feel especially fragile. Mars, the planet of anger, will also retrograde in his zodiac sign in the second half of the year and could make him feel that the world is against him. If he launches any attacks, they will ultimately bring him to defeat in the end. He was born on June 8.
Hollywood titan Ben Affleck has known his own share of ups and downs. However, 2022 could be quite tough on him as Saturn, the planet of life lessons and challenges, stands before him to test his strength, energy and willpower. Karmic decisions around partnerships are sure to come, as he must own up to his past and will need to find a sense of balance even when things are rocky in his life. The Leo star was born on Aug. 15.
As beloved (if controversial) icon and talk show queen Ellen DeGeneres takes her bow with the 19th season of her eponymous show, she is undoubtedly feeling the weight of the world. Saturn, the planet of life lessons, is orbiting within her zodiac sign and will force her to face reality and reflect on everything she has done up until this point in time. In a sense, she may feel that 2022 is a bit of a somber year as she lets go of who she used to be and fights to understand who she wants to be in the next 30 years. She was born on Jan. 26.
Having learned to live in the spotlight since he was very young, Justin Bieber is no stranger to the inevitable ups and downs of life in the public eye. While 2022 will certainly bring him some happy news and fresh beginnings — and even a high possibility of fatherhood — he will also be struggling with some inner demons and fears. This will be a silent theme beneath the radar as he tries to make peace with his mental health but will become even more pronounced for him in the second half of the year. Frustrations within his home and family could be triggered as he feels more fired up — eager to go one way when others may not see eye-to-eye with him. He was born on March 1.
Queen of pop and living Leo legend Madonna has never been afraid of stormy weather. She has always learned to fly in the face of challenges and use them as a creative tool. However, powerful eclipses this year will make her feel highly emotional and as if she is caught in the midst of an earthquake. Uranus and Saturn, two very powerful planets, will also be aiming fire at her now and in the years to come, causing her to find even deeper levels of strength. She will be forced to make some very tough decisions in 2022. She was born on Aug. 16.
Talk show queen Wendy Williams has had a few rocky years already — and 2022 could force her to make some very intense decisions. As Saturn continues to bring her intense lessons around her mental and physical health, she may even decide that it’s time to go in a different life direction in general. While personal relationships should bring her much happiness in 2022, her career will see heat. That will force her to decide if she’s ready to carry a newfound career torch, retire or end up burning herself out and leaving the spotlight in a way that dampens the light of her legacy. She was born on July 18.
Scorpios are unafraid of controversy, something that Caitlyn Jenner can handle with a smile. However, with Saturn and Uranus continuing to bring tension to her in 2022, the California governor wannabe may feel that she’s stepping into a bullfight wherever she goes — especially in the second half of the year. Her emotions could feel especially volatile, and with eclipses happening in her zodiac sign then, too, she could make many enemies that ultimately seek to bring her down. She was born on Oct. 28.
As the mighty leader of the evolving metaverse, Mark Zuckerberg has big dreams for his empire and for the world. However, with Uranus creeping through Taurus, his zodiac sign, it is clashing with many other planets. On one hand, he is doing his best to be a visionary but, on the other, he could just be spinning far into space! Eclipses are happening in his zodiac sign in 2022, too, which could fire him up to go big or go home — or weaken his energy in the process. He was born on May 14.
Leo pop star Demi Lovato will be facing some tough love in 2022. Saturn, the planet of life lessons, will stand directly across the sky from them, causing them to face everything they have built in the past 15 years — and own up to the consequences. Their physical and mental vitality will be tested. On one hand, this can help them to cut out anything that is holding them down so they are freer and healthier than ever before — or it can cause them to shatter. Partnerships will be tough on them — but so will their career and domestic life, too. To be honest, they are in one of the most trying periods of their life and they will need all the love and support they can get. They were born on Aug. 20.
American treasure Martha Stewart has a mixed bag of stars in 2022. While she will certainly see her finances grow and some opportunities to expand her legacy, she will also likely see some friction, too. Luckily, her career is pretty solid, but the stars could bring her a sense of cold distance and detachment in her personal life and relationships. She may at times feel the world doesn’t understand her and that she is more weakened than usual. In the second half of the year, it would be wise for her to tread lightly to avoid controversies or backlash online. The Leo mogul was born on Aug. 3.
Celebrities who will go through a rebirth
2022 will bring big opportunities to go through a rebirth, find an exciting new path and even walk through fire for some of our favs, including Pete Davidson, Shawn Mendes, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Johnny Depp, Zayn Malik, J.K. Rowling and Billie Eilish. This doesn’t mean things will be bad, per se — just that they will learn even more about their personal strength and what means the most to them. You heard it here first.
Predictions for what’s in and out in Hollywood in 2022 from rising manager and producer Brandon Cohen of BAC Talent
“It can be the kiss of death to predict ‘what’s out’ as the mood of audience taste is more global than ever before offering a ‘there’s something for everyone,’ which has pretty much always been the case. It would be great to continue to see breakthrough performances of emerging and raw talent, and new stories along with reboots and existing franchise expansions.”
