Books for Each Zodiac Sign: 2024

by Deborah Carter Mastelotto

We will all welcome the new energy 2024 brings, especially during the first half of the year. We feel a strong need to establish ourselves, build something solid, and unapologetically embrace comfort and security. 

We attract the most good fortune by being steady, charitable, and generous. We can pursue our goals in a more leisurely fashion, watching profits and possessions slowly accumulate but we must guard against being stubborn and too self-focused.


Learn to think like a ‘Business of One’ but, to make remote work satisfying and productive you need a strategy. That’s why the book ‘Remote, Inc: How to Thrive at Work . . . Wherever You are’ by Alexandra Samuel and Robert C. Posen.

I’ts the book you need this year. It gives you the strategies and tools to help tap into the unique advantages of working from home.

To help you do this painlessly, first read Karen Wickre’s ‘Taking the Work Out of Networking: Your Guide to Making and Keeping Great Connections’ . Let Wickre guide you in your quest to make genuine profitable connections that last.


Life doesn’t have to be as complicated as it was last year, but your key to success is

just a shift in your perspective, in the way you see yourself. Let Vaughn Carter help you see things differently with his book ‘Help Me, I’m Stuck: Six Proven Methods to Shift Your Mindset From Self-Sabotage to Self-Improvement’ and get out of your own way.

This year your career success depends on sharing your vision and enlisting acolytes to follow it. Going solo won’t bring you as much joy (or profit), but you might need a little boost. Read Cameron Herold’s ‘Vivid Vision: A Remarkable Tool For Aligning Your Business Around a Shared Vision of the Future’. This book can be a holistic road map to help get your teammates passionate about your big picture, and the one you want to share to make your dream a reality.

Fun is an action you can take here and now, practically anywhere, anytime.

PHD Mike Rucker’s book ‘The Fun Habit: How the Pursuit of Joy and Wonder Can Change Your Life’ is your book for 2024.

Sagittarius folk need to feel the freedom to move, especially in your work environment.
