Whenever you wake up on January 1—which may be later than usual with the languid Taurus moon encouraging you to stay in bed—no need to dive into the whole resolution-setting thing. Mercury is retrograde, remember? And in ambitious Capricorn, no less, so the stage won’t be set for such forward-thinking activities. We recommend holding off until January 21, when the first new moon of 2023, in experimental, progress-driven Aquarius, sets up a much better launchpad for your dreams. In the meanwhile, you can ease into 2023, using the first few weeks as a time for all the retrograde-positive “re-” activities, such as relaxing, reflecting, and reconfiguring.
That’s not to say you can’t start reviewing career goals right after the New Year. Scour LinkedIn and social media. Is a former colleague crushing it? And do you see an opening for a collaboration? Send a hello note or catch up over a cup of cheer. Don’t go in with an agenda; just nurture the relationship. If nothing else, you’ll leave the casual meetup inspired, with ideas you can apply to your own ambitious plans.
