The last couple of years have been confusing and stressful, so we want to help make our transition into 2023 clear and productive. That’s why we have a book recommendation for each Sun Sign. Hopefully, this will give us all a head start.
**Happy Birthday Capricorn! **(December 22 – January 19) The crucial mindset for you in 2023 is transformation and change in your work, but from a creative home base. That’s why we are recommending ‘If You Could Live Anywhere: The Surprising importance of Place in a Work from Anywhere World’. Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?
**Aquarius** (January 20 – February 18) Its time to stop dreaming of creating a podcast or YouTube channel, or ramping up your social media in general, because this is the year the stars align to do it. We suggest you get ‘The Art of Social Media’ by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick asap.
**Pisces** (February 19 – March 20) Your charm and charisma are off the charts in 2023, so to help channel this personal magic into money-making power, read ‘The Like Switch: An Ex FBI Agent’s Guide to Influencing, Attracting, and Winning People over’ by Jack Schafer PHD.
**Aries** (March 21 – April 19) This is your lucky year, but you must be willing to radically change the way you think about making money, and you need to be ready to move fast when you see opportunities. Read ‘Emotional Agility:Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life’ by Susan David.
**Taurus** (April 20 – May 20) You’ve never really been a joiner, but now is not the year to go it alone—you need a fan base. Look around for organizations to join and groups be part of, maybe even do some public speaking. We suggest reading ‘Deliver Unforgettable Presentations: How to Speak To Be Remembered and Repeated, In Person, Online, And Onstage’ by Patricia Fripp, Darren Lacroix and Mark Brown, and get ready to wow them.
**Gemini **(May 21 – June 20) You always like to think things through, so the idea of using mostly instinct to make decisions this year might seem crazy. That’s why we insist you read ‘The Power of Intuition: How to Use Your Gut Feelings to Make Better Decisions at Work’ by Gary Klein. Let it be your guidebook in 2023.
**Cancer** (June 21 – July 22) Everyone loves Brene’ Brown, but her book ‘Daring Greatly:How the Courage to be Vulnerable transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead’ should be your personal manual in 2023.
**Leo** (July 23 – August 22) This year expect an explosive career trajectory if you focus on creating a team. The book to help you with this is ‘The Partnership Economy: How Modern Businesses Find New Customers, Grow Revenue, and Deliver Exceptional Experiences’ by David A Yovanno
**Virgo** (August 23 – September 22) Your 2023 is about focusing on any ‘Other’ who might be significant. To help you, we recommend ’The Power of Two: How to Make the Most of Your Partnerships in Work and in Life’ by Rodd Wagner.
**Libra** (September 23 – October 22) ‘The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need’ by Andrew Tobias has been an investors guidebook since 1976, but the newly revised edition was released in 2022, just in time for your powerhouse invest-in-your-future year.
**Scorpio** (October 23 – November 21) We are going to suggest a book that might seem counter-intuitive,—‘That Sounds Fun: The Joys of Being An Amateur, the Power of Falling in Love, and Why You Need a Hobby’ by Annie F Downs. Yes, it’s going to be that kind of year. You’re Welcome.
**Sagittarius **(November 22 – December 21) You should be changing the way you work, make money, and even how you live day-to-day, and the changes need to be radical. That’s why we recommend ‘Pivot: The Art and Science of Reinventing Your Career and Your Life’, by Adam Markel, to ease the way. Be brave—you’re going to enjoy this.
