Welcome to 2018. You will find this year a radical change from last year, but that’s a good thing. Every January I compile a list of books I know will be helpful for each astrologically sign. If you know me you know I’m a big fan of audiobooks, so this year it’s audiobooks for everyone!
Here’s my list:
Happy Birthday Capricorn! (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) This is your year and you deserve it! Finally, you can exert some real influence again and expand your fan base. What you do this year sets into motion a three year cycle of prosperity, success and for the next ten months, popularity. To help get you ready, I’m recommending: Influence: Mastering Life’s Most Powerful Skill, by The Great Courses, Narrated By Professor Kenneth G. Brown. You have influence this year, so use it for good not evil.
Aquarius (Jan 21-Feb. 19) For the next couple of years, your job is you—your mind, your visions, and the exhaustive study of what makes that brain of yours so powerful. Having said that, this is also your year for stellar career success and elevated social standing. If you handle it wisely you will have an extraordinary 2018. To help navigate your way to the top, read: “Your Best Year Ever—A 5-Step Plan for Achieving Your Most Important Goals” by: Michael Hyatt, narrated by: Michael Hyatt. This book can be your roadmap.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) It’s time to let the world know how amazing you really are and over the next three years you’ll be called upon to speak your truth in front of an audience—several, in fact. But this year you travel, spiritually and physically. Discovering who and what you believe in may not seem very interesting, but when the path includes all sorts of travel, real and metaphoric, things get exciting. To prepare you might listen to this audiobook: “The Art of Pilgrimage—The Seeker’s Guide to Making Travel Sacred” By: Phil Cousineau, narrated by: Efrem Zimbalist Jr. Just a suggestion.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 20) 2018 kicks off a 3 year cycle, where your power and status accelerate exponentially. Especially important are the next three months.

Try listening to the podcasts: The Foundations for Collaboration, The Collaborative Podcast Series, Book 1 by David B. Savage, narrated by David B. Savage.
Taurus (Apr. 21-May-21) You work well in the context of partnerships, so this next year should feel great, because partnerships are lucky in 2018. But, your main difficulty has always been truly listening to your partner when your emotions are involved.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) 2018 is your year for having some fun, exploring and expanding your innate creativity and improving relationships of all kinds.
