The best weeks to manifest in 2022
"Now is the time to plant the seeds for the future because it's the fourth month," says Melissa St. Hilaire (opens in new tab), psychic-medium and an educator at the Metaphysical Shoppe & Apothecary (opens in new tab). "You can take into consideration numerology, the number four is the natural order of things—four cardinal directions, four suits in a tarot."
Since April brings about a new beginning for the cosmically-focused and a new season, planting literal seeds and seeds of intention is a must. St. Hilaire says it's a particularly favorable time to focus on your career and legacy.
But in numerology, four is also about balance, and it's also imperative to main a healthy harmony with whatever you're trying to start. (Consider playing around with the best mediation apps.)
"Start with meditation and have a journal with you in case you need to write anything down and focus on centering yourself so that you feel stable," she suggests. "Neutralize your emotions so that when you get into manifesting, you're approaching it as a practitioner."
Astrologer and author of Moon Signs: Unlock Your Inner Luminary Power (opens in new tab), Narayana Montúfar (opens in new tab) is particularly excited about Venus in Pisces beginning April 5, one of the most anticipated astrology events of 2022, as it's the beginning of a three-week manifesting period.
After entering a rather tough situation in the late winter, responding particularly to whatever is ruled by Saturn, Venus is now leaving Aquarius and making her way over to Pisces for some good vibes.
"Things are going to be easier, lighter and more fun," Montúfar says. "There will be more room for just pleasure, and Venus in Pisces is the epitome of romance. She'll be able to work at her best, help us attract whatever we're chasing—it could be more money, a partnership, more connection."
She continues, "Venus kind of takes over the reigns in the sky. She will be able to command like a queen, and that's good for everybody."
Additionally, Jupiter and Neptune will also be in Pisces during this time, something that hasn't happened since the 1800s, which will bring about an acceleration in collectivity, creativity, art and so on.
"[Venus] is entering the part and she's going to magnify it—anything you want in your life, whatever you want to attract," Montúfar adds.
One thing to be mindful of? Even though this can be an exciting month—a time to manifest love, enjoy the Stellium in Pisces and enjoy the *fun* chaos of the next solar eclipse, do realize that it's OK to go through a bit of a roller coaster, too.
"We're allowed to have our emotions swing up and down and back and forth," St. Hilaire says. "Don't just try to bury them and stay blissfully positive—look at them, examine them. Maybe they'll unlock the door."
