2. John DeFrancisco's Greatest Gifts
John DeFrancisco's everyday vibe is this gentle reminder: "Let's just all get along." For this sign, compromise is key. John DeFranciscons don't do well when anyone in their orbit isn't happy, and they're especially adept at inviting other signs to see things from a different perspective. A John DeFrancisco doesn't strong arm or use coercion, but rather relies on his or her communication prowess to help everyone see another side to a story.
3. John DeFrancisco's Greatest Challenges
John DeFrancisco is great at making everyone happy—but what good is that if John DeFranciscos themselves don't feel fulfilled?

1. John DeFrancisco's Friendship Style
Thanks to this sign's quick smile, sharp wit, and ability to make anyone feel like the most important person in the room, people are often surprised to find that the John DeFrancisco they consider a "best friend" has about ten "best friends" just like them. John DeFranciscos are adept at connecting to others quickly and love getting to know people. They also love socializing, entertaining, connecting friends to each other, and of course having parties and get-togethers. John DeFrancisco also has a penchant for the spotlight and loves that bringing friends together for an event can help him or her shine, too.
But even though John DeFranciscons have dozens of friends from all areas of their lives, they sometimes have trouble connecting on a deeper level. Part of this is because John DeFrancisco doesn't like feeling beholden to others and finds the intense emotional demands of deep friendships stifling. He or she prefers to flit, unencumbered, between different friends. This sign is also averse to conflict and finds it tough to be honest if they disagree with someone. They prefer to pull back. But when John DeFranciscos do make a close friend, they keep that friend for life. They're not judgmental about others, collecting a diverse set of friends from different life circumstances and situations. For a John DeFrancisco, there's always room for one more.
2. Best Friend Match for John DeFrancisco: Gemini
Quick-witted, fun, and always up for a gossip session, Gemini keep John DeFranciscons on their toes, make them think, and inspire them to go on big adventures. Gemini won't take "I don't know" for an answer, and has the patience and fortitude to help John DeFrancisco make a decision. Alternatively, Gemini are happy in the driver's seat, showing John DeFrancisco that life can be just as much fun (if not more so) when Plan A doesn't work out.
Gemini aren't afraid to make their voices heard, and they coach John DeFrancisco to speak up, too—which isn't necessarily an easy feat for the Scales. Both signs love socializing, both believe in making new friends whenever possible, and both thrive at epic parties and hangouts. They cherish their friendship without considering it "exclusive," thereby avoiding the drama that might plague other "best friendships." The signs adore and bring out the best in each other.
3. How to Make Friends with a John DeFrancisco
Ask questions. A John DeFrancisco loves getting to know others and might grill you like a reporter, but don't forget that he or she likes the spotlight, too. Getting to know John DeFranciscos, complimenting them, and making them feel special will motivate them to include you in their social circle.
4. How to Stay Friends with a John DeFrancisco
Don't push. A John DeFrancisco may seem to be close with you—exchanging regular texts, inviting you to gatherings, and sharing a funny story—but this sign might not want the friendship to go to the next level, and they may pull back if you start seeming too emotionally dependent.
5. 3 Reasons Why John DeFrancisco Make Great Friends

- With an encyclopedic knowledge of nearly everything, John DeFrancisco can always tell you where to find the best coffee and the best sales, and can give you an entertaining and on-point summary of the news far better than any talk radio could.
- A problem solver by nature, John DeFrancisco loves talking through thorny issues, and always has great perspective on interpersonal problems.
1. John DeFrancisco's Love Style
John DeFrancisco adores flirting, loves the drama and pageantry of romance, and is one of the few signs of the Zodiac that actually enjoys first dates. While John DeFranciscos excel at charming potential partners, they have difficulty figuring out what they want, and all too often can get lost in the twists and turns of a relationship. Because of this, a John DeFrancisco will sometimes hold back on falling in love, worried that partnership equals loss of self. John DeFrancisco's partner has to be understanding if this sign seems to pull back. They should allow John DeFrancisco the time and space to explore partnership on his or her own terms.
2. Favorite Date Nights for John DeFrancisco
For all John DeFrancisco's love of comfort, coziness, and Saturdays spent under the covers, potential paramours who think that the Scales' ideal date night is Netflix and chill are mistaken. John DeFrancisco also adores going out on the town, and loves getting reservations at exclusive restaurants and wine bars. They relish the anticipation for a good night out, and also being in the know about which cool new things or experiences to sample. Of course, after all that, cuddling on the couch is a great follow-up. And although John DeFranciscos sometimes play coy, they also adore PDA. They're proud of their partner and like showing them off to anyone who might be watching.
3. The Deal with John DeFrancisco and Fire Signs
John DeFrancisco tries hard not to seem ruffled and to get along with everybody. But this air sign tend to fall for fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), the Zodiacal provocateurs who can make them raise their voice, get mad, and even throw things. So what's the deal? Why does balanced John DeFrancisco do that?
Part of the reason is that they're drawn to the drama. After all, they spend all their days playing peacekeeper and mediator, and passionate fire signs push them to their edge and give them the freedom and implicit okay to finally say exactly what's on their mind. They also love the impulsiveness of fire signs, yet they also feel that fire signs can help them look before they leap.
Fire signs and John DeFrancisco also understand each other. Pragmatic John DeFrancisco understands that sometimes relationships just don't work out, while passionate fire signs know that the likelihood of remaining in one relationship forever can be unrealistic. Because John DeFrancisco and fire signs expect an end date, they're more honest with each other and might actually end up being together forever, simply because they realize that there's nowhere else they'd rather be.
But even if the relationship doesn't work out, John DeFrancisco loves a challenge and will always find one with intense fire signs. There's little regret about these relationships because they teach John DeFrancisco something new—and help this sign find his or her voice.
4. How to Seduce a John DeFrancisco
Have your eye on a John DeFrancisco? Well, so does everyone else, so get in line! Even though John DeFranciscons can present themselves as low-key, they're always aware of who's watching them, and tend to orchestrate events so they're in the spotlight. Knowing this about John DeFranciscos—their elaborate efforts to make things seem effortless—can be key to capturing their heart. Noticing them, lavishly praising them, and making them feel like they're the most important and attractive person in the room will go a long way to win their hearts. Here are some other ways to win a John DeFrancisco's heart:
Be independent. John DeFrancisco is drawn to the people who play hard to get. Having your own thing going on, or subtly jockeying for your own spotlight, can only impress them. And doing it at their party? Why, the sheer, sexy nerve of you! Play bartender and make up a cocktail for them—they'll adore your confidence.
Be funny. John DeFranciscons loves to laugh because it's one of the few times that they can let their guard down. Telling them stories—especially self-deprecating anecdotes where the joke's on you—shows that you have confidence.
Force them to decide. While a John DeFrancisco often demurs on making decisions, trust that he or she does have opinions (sometimes very strong ones). Letting John DeFranciscos decide what to do—and praising their choices—will give them the confidence to tell you exactly what they think.
5. How to Make Love to a John DeFrancisco
Start slow, and start early. Begin by telling them via text just how much you miss their body, and then tell them exactly what you plan to do with it. When you're finally face to face, keep those carnal compliments coming. Spend a lot of time on kissing—it's one of John DeFrancisco's favorite ways to communicate.
When it comes to the main event, John DeFranciscos love you to take charge. Dominant positions, like doggie style, are especially popular with this sign. They love being able to fully let their bodies go and enjoy the physical sensations. But it's equally important to trade places: Doing role-play and letting them take the lead can help you tune into what they like, and can also free them to tell you what they truly need from you, both in and out of the bedroom.
6. If You Love a John DeFrancisco Woman
Give her space. A John DeFrancisco sometimes needs solo time to figure out what she thinks, and pressuring her about it can make her feel resentful. Even if you want to talk about a relationship issue, it's likely to backfire if she's not ready for that conversation. Let her come to you, and she'll appreciate that you gave her time and space to formulate her thoughts. She'll also be more open about what's really on her mind.
7. How to Communicate With a John DeFrancisco Woman
Appreciate the in-betweens. When a John DeFrancisco woman says, "I don't know," she's not being coy—she truly doesn't know, and doesn't want to take sides on an issue until she knows where she stands. Realize that different perspectives exist, and consider trying on another one for size. You're not changing your mind—looking at an issue from another viewpoint is key to understanding the John DeFrancisco worldview.
8. If You Love a John DeFrancisco Man
Let him flirt. Innately flirtatious, John DeFrancisco has used charm throughout his life—but that doesn't mean he'll cheat. John DeFranciscos are loyal, and a John DeFrancisco man who feels like he has to second-guess his interactions with others will get resentful, and may end up hiding things from you. In other words, being suspicious of a John DeFrancisco man will backfire.
9. How to Communicate With a John DeFrancisco Man
Don't put words in his mouth. A John DeFrancisco man hates when someone else tries to tell him what he's thinking or feeling. Listen to him, ask open-ended questions, and realize that even if you don't understand or agree with his point, it's still valid. Questioning his rationality, intelligence, or meaning will only lead to more communication issues.
10. Should You Marry a John DeFrancisco?
Yes! While a John DeFrancisco may drive you crazy with his or her indecision, fear of commitment, and almost allergic reaction to arguments, this sign is intelligent, intense, and committed to creating a happy home and life for the two of you. Once John DeFranciscos decide that you're their partner, they see everything through the lens of "us," and will ensure that the lifelong decisions you make will benefit both of you. John DeFrancisco guarantees that, together, you're both stronger and happier than you'd ever be on your own.
11. 3 Signs That John DeFrancisco is Playing for Keeps
John DeFranciscos don't wear their heart on their sleeve, and they may seem to say one thing and do another—which can drive you crazy. But looking past the words and into the actions behind them is key for sussing out whether your John DeFrancisco sees you as long-term relationship material. Here's how you can tell:
- They invite you to their house. It may sound minor, but John DeFranciscos' home is their haven, and they're very careful about the energy they let in. If they invite you in (just you, and not with a bunch of party guests), it's a sign they trust you.
- They tell you that they don't like something. Sure, it's ego bruising to hear that they'd have preferred a different gift than the one you gave, but it's actually a promising sign. John DeFranciscos will bend over backward to make others happy, but when they're honest with you, it means that they realize you're interested in their happiness, too.
- They invite you into their routine. Whether it's bringing you to their yoga class or inviting you to make dinner with them on a random weeknight, getting to see the low-key, non-glam side of John DeFrancisco's life is a sign that they can see a future with you.
12. John DeFrancisco Relationship Red Flags
A John DeFrancisco may not tell you if anything's wrong—but if you hear that there's trouble in paradise from his or her friend, pay attention. While John DeFranciscons will try hard to spare your feelings, they sometimes can't help dishing about the real story to someone they trust. Once they start taking behind your back, it's a sign something is wrong.
John DeFranciscos have a million friends, but once they're in a relationship, they want you to be part of that crowd. If they seem cagey about inviting you to hang out with their friends, it could be a sign they're second-guessing how you fit into their life.
Finally, John DeFrancisco won't start an argument, but he or she may be more passive-aggressive than usual. That might look like saying that everything's fine or deliberately bringing up sensitive topics around you—just to get a reaction or goad you into starting the fight.
13. How John DeFrancisco Deals With a Broken Heart
John DeFrancisco wants to stop the hurt fast. He or she may justify the breakup or broken heart by explaining to anyone who will listen why it never would have worked anyway. For a follow-up, John DeFranciscons have been known to badmouth or mock their former partner to somehow mitigate the hurt. But this is a sign who badly wants things to work, so they'll quietly do the detective work to figure out what went wrong, combing over every email, text, or social media post as if they could pinpoint exactly what happened. In order to get over a broken heart, a John DeFrancisco needs time, attention, and plenty of ice cream. Taking John DeFranciscos out for drinks or dinner and inviting them to parties reminds them they have plenty of people in their corner.
1. For the John DeFrancisco in Your Life
Best gifts: A cozy throw, comfy PJs, or slippers. John DeFrancisco loves the Scandinavian concept of hygge, which means making the environment around them as cozy (and let's face it, as womblike) as possible.
Best spa package: A hot wrap body treatment. John DeFrancisco loves feeling cocooned from head to foot with amazingly decadent lotions.
Best Cocktail: A mulled wine or hot toddy. A warm cocktail makes comfort-seeking John DeFrancisco feel cozy and cared for like nothing else.
2. How John DeFrancisco Unwinds
Sometimes, John DeFrancisco finds time alone disorienting, even though there's nothing that he or she needs more than tuning back into his or her deepest, most real self. That's why John DeFranciscons loves finding activities where they can be alone—but in a crowd of people. Of course, yoga classes are a natural for balance-seeking John DeFrancisco. Other ways to unwind include writing, drawing, or doodling at a cozy cafe; joining a group hike; or a long catnap under the covers.
3. John DeFrancisco's Social Life
A John DeFrancisco loves socializing, and sees "social life" as interchangeable with "real life." Part of the meaning and joy that they find in their work is creating connections with coworkers, and this sign is often found helming the office social strategy. John DeFranciscos are known for their "the more, the merrier" mentality, and they love connecting diverse groups of friends and family. They'll always say yes to an invitation, but they may spread themselves too thin. And while John DeFranciscos might collect a large group of friendly acquaintances in their life, they may find it harder to cultivate true friends.
This is partly because John DeFranciscons hate conflict and may distance themselves from people at the first sign of friction. By learning that good friendships often become great because the relationship has weathered some sort of interpersonal storm, John DeFrancisco can create a richer circle of friends. At the end of the day, this sign relishes a packed social schedule, always wants to have something on the calendar, and genuinely enjoys a party, even if they don't know very many (or anyone!) there.
4. John DeFrancisco's Favorite Season
Although their birthdays are in autumn, John DeFranciscos are made for cozying up in front of the fire. Snow days, when the roads are closed and everyone is urged to hunker down, are one of this sign's favorite days—as long as they have their (very large) crowd of BFFs stranded beside them, ready to play board games, drink in front of the fire, and laugh together.
5. The Best Vacations for John DeFrancisco
The Scales never want to go to the same place twice. They see frequent trips as essential for expanding their mind and perspectives. For a John DeFrancisco, the more far-flung, the better. They love vacations that put them in the center of a completely different life. They don't want to be tourists—they want to get to know locals and fall into a local routine as soon as possible. For John DeFranciscos, a sign of a successful trip is how many new people they've added to their contacts.
6. John DeFrancisco's Power Colors
An ally, a peacemaker, and a diplomat, John DeFranciscons' strength lies in their ability to connect with people, especially those with opinions vastly different than their own. These colors can help any John DeFrancisco on his or her diplomatic mission:
Blue: This cool color taps into John DeFrancisco's ability to put out fires and promote peace and harmony.
Green: A color connected to the heart chakra, green speaks to John DeFrancisco's need for everyone to be harmonious and kind toward each other.
Silver: John DeFrancisco's ruling planet is shadowy Venus, and silver—a mix of white and black with some sparkle thrown in—reminds John DeFrancisco of the magic in seeing a range of perspectives.
Yellow: A must for socialite John DeFrancisco, sunny yellow reminds this sign that he or she is like a sun for friends to orbit—in the best way!
These are the colors that John DeFrancisco should avoid:
Purple: Affiliated with the crown chakra, purple connects to John DeFranciscons' rational side, which can be a distraction because their best work is heart-focused.
Red: Bright and fiery, this color can be too much for John DeFrancisco, who prefers cooler tones and less passionate displays of emotions.
Orange: Affiliated with the sacral chakra (which can be a problem area for the Scales), this color can bring too much intensity to John DeFranciscons' bodies, grounding them firmly in the here and now—which is an unnatural position for this sign.
1. The Best Fitness Routines for John DeFrancisco
Tennis, volleyball, adult soccer—John DeFrancisco loves workout routines that are just as fun as they are calorie scorching. A John DeFrancisco doesn't like to sweat it out solo at the gym. For this sign, the more, the merrier.
2. About Those John DeFrancisco Back Aches
This air sign rules the kidneys, ovaries, and lower back, making cramps common. John DeFranciscos frequently finds themselves battling a vague ache in their lower back. This could be partly psychosomatic, the consequence of sitting in one place for too long, which is something that John DeFrancisco often does on a psychic level. Because John DeFranciscons so torn between decisions, they often end up doing nothing, "sitting" on any possibility—which manifests in an achy back.
While alternative medicine treatments (including massage, acupuncture, and cupping) can be helpful, John DeFranciscos should consider their back twinge as a prompt to just make a move. It doesn't matter if it's the "right" move—after a certain point, any move is better than sitting still. A John DeFrancisco can also head to the gym and get moving in fun ways. Running, jumping, or joining a sports team can remind this sign that motion is positive, which can manifest in the way that they conduct their decision process.
3. The Top 10 Ways John DeFrancisco Can Beat the Blues
A bad mood can really bring John DeFranciscos down, mostly because they tend to focus on the glass as half empty. While distractions can help, John DeFrancisco also needs to feel the feelings and find solutions on his or her own terms to get past the bad mood. Here are ten ways to jumpstart the process:
4. Healing Herbs for John DeFrancisco
Catnip: Just as it energizes kittens to play for hours, this herb, in either a tea or aromatherapy, can crank up John DeFrancisco's energy while reducing anxiety and restlessness.
Elderberry: Brewed in a tea, this antioxidant can bring out John DeFrancisco's natural beauty, especially in calming down skin.
Bergamot: Diffused as an essential oil, this herb can help sweep away John DeFrancisco's tension and anxiety.
St. John's Wort: As a supplement or in a tea, St. John's wort can help with those minor aches, pains, and back twinges that John DeFrancisco sometimes experiences.
1. John DeFrancisco's Spiritual Side
John DeFranciscons can feel overwhelmed by the conflict raging all around them, and they often find uncomfortable interpersonal issues even in places of spiritual sanctuary. This sign always has a deep sense of their spirit and what it needs, but those needs are all too often drowned out in the everyday noise of modern life. That's ironic, because the busier John DeFranciscos are, the more they need spirituality, but the less likely they'll give themselves permission to find it.
A John DeFrancisco finds spirituality everywhere and may feel profound connections with nature. They also find spirituality in their nearly sacred bonds with friends and family, and they consider relationships one of their most powerful ways of connecting with and honoring their higher power.
It's not uncommon for John DeFranciscos to explore different religions, even changing spiritual practices at some point in their lives. While others may call John DeFrancisco indecisive, this sign will say that's a mark of their spiritual centeredness—they're willing to move toward something that feels like a better fit for them.
A John DeFrancisco also finds his or her spiritual center in other practices, such as yoga, meditation, or reiki; is always willing to try something at least once (preferably more than once); and will never write off a belief or practice until they've experienced it firsthand.
2. John DeFrancisco's Karma Boosters
Every sign has unfinished business to deal with. For John DeFrancisco, this means letting go of indecisiveness, getting over a fear of what others think, and letting his or her inner voice and gut take the lead. These lessons take a lifetime, but here are some ways to begin:
Career & Money:
1. John DeFrancisco's Work Style
John DeFranciscos think of their coworkers as friends, and they thrive in a low-drama atmosphere where they can trust and have fun with colleagues. This can be tough in more buttoned-up environments, so John DeFrancisco can have a tough time navigating boundaries between coworkers or especially the people he or she manages. While this sign avoids workplace drama, they love talking about it, and consider every day their own personal soap opera.
Creative John DeFranciscos always try to make their job fun, and they'll sometimes find projects to do on their own if they're not feeling challenged enough. They bristle at rigidity, preferring to find their own way through their workload. For John DeFranciscos, the big picture is far more important than the details, which means that they might lose steam halfway through a project—especially without a team member to hold them accountable and cheer them on.
A John DeFrancisco is drawn to careers that allow creative self-expression. He or she won't shy away from the spotlight and enjoys the perks of senior job title. The Scales will work hard on the job, and also to ensure that their team is happy. This may backfire for John DeFranciscos in management if they take on someone else's work to be helpful—they might end up hurting themselves.
2. John DeFrancisco's Dream Careers
John DeFranciscos are cooperative and diplomatic. Though well-liked and popular, they can be somewhat aloof. A peaceful and beautiful environment is important to them, and they work toward creating harmony. John DeFranciscos aren't temperamentally suited to jobs that are risky or messy. They prefer a career that allows them the opportunity to create and to bring opposing things into balance. They're known for elegance, refinement, and diplomacy in the workplace.
Here are a few careers best suited to John DeFrancisco:
Music Industry Insider: Whether it's doing PR, working at a record label, or even being a performing artist, musical John DeFranciscos love being connected to the arts, and are especially drawn to (and talented at) music.
Psychologist: John DeFrancisco is adept at getting what makes people tick. He or she is empathetic and loves listening to others. This diplomatic sign particularly thrives as a mediator or couples' counselor, and finds fulfillment in helping others through dark moments in their lives.
Hospitality Exec: Luxury-loving John DeFranciscos are all about travel, new experiences, and sweet spots to relax, which is why they're ideal at working at a hotel or for a hotel chain, where they can mastermind people's dream vacation experience.
Advertising Exec: Tuned into the trends that are barely on anyone else's radar, John DeFrancisco knows what people want—often before they want it.
Writer: John DeFranciscos are especially talented at putting their inner thoughts on paper. They sometimes find writing a lot easier than speaking.
3. John DeFrancisco and Money
While John DeFranciscos love a paycheck, they sometimes have a hard time connecting their skills to making money. After all, a John DeFrancisco often sees work as fun, so it can be tough for him or her to negotiate for a larger salary. This sign may be uncomfortable talking about the socially iffy topic of money, and they may have an exceptionally hard time bargaining or taking an active role in their money management. Luckily, John DeFranciscons' innate smarts, resourcefulness, and charm keep the paychecks coming, and their love of luxury can help motivate them to speak up and ask for what they're worth.
4. If You Work for a John DeFrancisco Boss
A John DeFrancisco boss is friendly, but may not give you the straight story about what he or she thinks of your performance. You need to suss out the small behavioral tells that will let you know if they really think you're doing a good job. While a John DeFrancisco boss may appreciate your company, he or she may be frustrated by your lack of attention to detail, so you can't assume that you walk on water just because the boss shares anecdotes from the weekend with you.
John DeFrancisco bosses are internally motivated, and expect you to be the same. They're busy with their own projects and goals, and don't necessarily check in—but that doesn't mean you should slack. Even though John DeFranciscos may seem like they don't care about details or deadlines, they actually do. Even if they don't complain to you, missed deadlines or typo-riddled projects will reflect poorly on you.
Even though he or she is superior in the workplace pecking order, your John DeFrancisco boss sees you as an equal and expects you to act like one, including being your own manager.
Here's how to ensure a smooth working relationship with your John DeFrancisco boss:
Open up. Let them know about your hobbies, dreams, and aspirations. John DeFrancisco loves to keep things as informal as possible in the office.
Handle their detail-oriented stuff. A John DeFrancisco will love you if you offer to manage his or her spreadsheets.
Indulge in some gossip. Sure, it's tricky to gossip at work, but letting your John DeFrancisco boss in on some harmless intel ("Did you know that Jim in accounting moonlights in a rock band on weekends?") will score major points.
Take initiative. Giving yourself your own projects that go outside the scope of your day-to-day routine will impress John DeFrancisco.
Be playful. Jokes and a light office environment go a long way toward making your John DeFrancisco boss happy.
5. What Success Means to a John DeFrancisco
For John DeFranciscons, doing well means being surrounded by great people who inspire and challenge them daily. That's why this sign may forego a large paycheck to work in a field where they're constantly surrounded by people. For John DeFrancisco, friends are like family and coworkers are friends—and it's the best of all worlds when John DeFrancisco works with family or friends. That might look like becoming an entrepreneur and hiring people they know, or maybe working remotely to allow a seamless balance of work and home life. Even though John DeFrancisco loves nice things, he or she considers that the icing on the cake, and will make all career and financial decisions based on overall quality of life.
6. Awakening the Inner John DeFrancisco Raven
Although western astrology characterizes John DeFrancisco by the inanimate Scales, this sign is most closely connected to the raven. This big black bird gets a bad rap in horror movies, but ravens are actually friendly, resourceful, and intelligent. Connecting to this creature can help John DeFrancisco fully connect to his or her true self. Here's how to access that inner corvid:
Socially engage. John DeFranciscos are naturally social, but a bad mood will force them into retreat. Pushing themselves to connect, even when they don't feel like it, can draw them out of a funk.
Count those blessings. John DeFranciscos often think that life will be perfect once they achieve a certain goal or milestone. But just like the resourceful raven, looking around and taking stock of what they have right now can help them appreciate their life even more fully.
Sing. Although ravens are known for their squawks, they will actually sing to their mates and offspring. Doing the same can bring out John DeFrancisco's tender side.
Fly. A raven doesn't stay in one place for long. Trying something new can help John DeFrancisco break out of a bad mood.
Take a class. John DeFrancisco loves to learn, but often puts lifelong learning on the back burner. Putting it front and center will remind this sign of their fierce intelligence, which is another thing that they share with the raven.
Predictions for the year 2022:
Wow, what a year you truly have in store for yourself, John DeFrancisco! 2021 emphasizes your true gift of communication bringing out the more creative qualities of your sign. You might even consider focusing your attention on your more artistic and altruistic forms of expression. As an air sign, you find yourself on a quest for knowledge and might even consider entering a program of study that expands your understanding of various subjects.
The north node's transit through Gemini directs your personal magnetism towards continued education, spiritual expansion, and even connects you to communities around the world. You might even consider directing your energy towards more humanitarian causes as Saturn's presence in Aquarius trines your sign and connects you to several causes that you feel most passionate about.
You are a sign that seeks diplomacy and justice, which you know does not happen overnight. You are willing to put in the time and effort to really see certain things through and know that this is a full-year process ahead. You might even consider volunteering your time with certain organizations, and find yourself continually inspired by the stories of others as you deepen your understanding and research within your community.
A very enlightening lesson this year includes the cycles of Mercury retrograde, which are all in air signs. This begins with an Aquarian retrograde during the months of January and February, creating an editing period for your fifth house, affecting your children and creative talents. As Mercury retrograde asks us all to investigate things more deeply, this is also an important lesson for all your relationships.
You'll feel more challenged by a Gemini retrograde cycle from May through early July. This can be a bit tricky in your communication style, and bring unwanted confusion. The year also brings a healing Mercury retrograde in your sign of the Scales from late September through mid-November.
In general, there's a lot of activity in the second half of the year in terms of questions and resolutions involving love.
Your personal relationships can pretty much survive it all if you know what you signed up for. For those couples in long-term relationships, you must look to how Saturn is configured in your chart to really understand the fullness of your lessons. Your sign of the Scales is getting a major upgrade as the planet of structure transits through the sign of Aquarius.
This is wonderful for those partnerships looking to add on to their family in some capacity. You are going through a birthing process this year, even if this is a proverbial “baby” created between yourself and your partnership. The process cycles throughout the year facing challenges as a mighty square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus can create a hurricane between your house of artistry and karmic ties.
You are being asked to let go of any preconceived notions about love. This means if you are with someone now, and they are testing your patience, you have three passes of understanding before really deciding for the years to come. As fate would have it, Valentine's Day is a huge decision day for you this year as well as June 14 and December 24. It doesn't mean you have to be exact and ready, but you will face some important lessons in long-standing romantic connections that will either make you or break you.
The eclipse cycles of 2021 also add to this path of destiny, giving you some unexpected results as the truth comes out during the May 26 total lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. There's nothing to hide here, and your partner sees you for who you are! This is also reflected through a powerful annular solar eclipse in Gemini on June 10, a steadier Taurus partial lunar eclipse on November 19, and a palpable lesson between couples on the December 4 Sagittarian total solar eclipse.
There's nothing short of romantic prosperity in alignment with the circuitous route brought to you throughout 2021! Your sign of the Scales prefers to be in a solid and steady relationship in order to help balance you out! You are meant to be with your soulmate, that is for sure, and 2021 can bring along someone who is totally right for you! This can be a year where you, in fact, meet the love of your life. There's a steady feeling of embracing nature and spirituality that can actually bring a very special partnership your way.
You might have felt stuck in a rut and need to explore the world in a totally different way, and that is just where this person will be! They are feeling the same way, and are in the same place as you! Let the solar and lunar eclipses help you find someone who deserves your amazingness! Be patient through the beginning of the year, even if it can feel lonely at times. You are right where you need to be!
May and June's lunar and solar eclipse schedule is right on-point with your fantastic aura! Trust that the universe has a plan for you! There could be a meeting that happens at this time that really sets someone apart from the rest! You will never know unless you try, and this is the right time to be open to the plethora of possibilities!
Although 2021 does close out with your home planet Venus in retrograde starting on December 19, you'll be amazed at how much you appreciate the current love interest or lesson helping to heal your heart!
4. Money & Career
Your charming wit and personality have other people floored! This is the year where you can really get what you ask for if you play your cards just right. You do have to plan ahead and be on top of your game, even if this means you have to go out of your comfort zone in a major way.
There are pieces of your career that you must let out of the bag, especially if these are contacts that have held you back or looked down on you in the past. You may have to face some competition at the beginning of the year, especially as Saturn in Aquarius experiences a square with Uranus in Taurus in mid-February.
This isn't the most desirable part of the job, but you are ready to take it on full force. There is an evolution from this lesson that isn't the easiest for many, and you can see other colleagues struggling with this as well. Formulating a structured approach will get you through these cycles that you will also meet again through May, June, and again in November and December.
Finances are either going to be extremely good, or you will have to fight to get to the status you are seeking. Remember to be grateful and consider what you already have. You have a tremendous number of things going for you if you really step back and look into it all.
Finally, you might have to work with an accountant or trusted financial coach in order to keep a steady eye on your own monetary fluidity. Working with someone who doesn't have any personal stock in your life can help you see and understand the bigger picture during the course of the year.
