Happy New Year, star gazers! 2023 has hardly come in the door and taken off its shoes, but it already looks like this is going to be a major year for nearly every zodiac sign. The theme of this year, it seems, is change: new relationships or changing old ones, new homes, new opportunities, and new random happenstances are coming for us all.
Before you finish setting your intentions for the year (this is a no resolution household!), take a moment to read how the stars say your world will shift this year. Then, meet the audiobook that will provide the inspiration, the courage, or the laughs you’ll need to wade through the changes.
Major changes will be taking place in your home and work lives: pondering a career switch? A move? A new roommate with a home candle making business? Love is coming your way in abundance, too. Itâ€™s going to be easier than ever for you to be fun and flirty. And how are you going to face these huge changes? Courage, goaty!

Here is a challenge for you in 2023: try to think with your mind open, and your heart safe. Youâ€™ll have some big choices to make in the home and friendship sectors, so make sure you don’t miss out on something great (or, on the flipside fall into a dicey situation) because you feel your opinions are set in stone. Youâ€™re worthy of wonderful things, so make sure youâ€™re open to receiving them.
