A new year gives us a new chance to reinvent ourselves for the better, taking what we’ve learned in 2022 to the next level. While many adopt familiar resolutions (like being more active or eating healthier), if you’re looking for a unique 2023 challenge that’s completely customized to you, we’ve got you covered. Based on astrology and your zodiac sign, we’ve selected the perfect New Year’s resolution to make 2023 your best year yet.
ARIES: GIVE UP (A LITTLE) CONTROL
Carefully planning your next move may help you stay one step ahead of the competition but it’s not adding much excitement to your life! If you’re single, try going on a date with someone who can expose you to different interests or, if you’re partnered up, let your special someone surprise you with the next date-night activity. You can even challenge yourself by trying a completely new activity. Ever run a 5k, entered a photography competition or attempted to break a world record? If not, what’s stopping you?

GEMINI: FINISH WHAT YOU’VE STARTED
Multitasking is one of your greatest strengths but trying to do too much often means that some projects end up abandoned instead of completed. In 2023, challenge yourself to wrap up all the loose ends you’ve left behind over the years. With your to-do list checked off, you’ll have the freedom to take on a whole new load of exciting activities without the ghosts of past projects making you feel guilty for moving forward.
CANCER: STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Home is definitely where your heart is which is why you prefer to stick to familiar places and routines. While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying the things you already know and love, you may be missing out on new experiences and chances to create lasting memories with your friends and family. In 2023, challenge yourself to say “yes!” to a new opportunity each month, whether a last-minute trip, learning a new skill or even joining a social group to make new friends!
LEO: EMBRACE YOUR COMPETITION
Like it or not, we’re all influenced by those around us. You love being the best at what you do, but are you surrounded by people that keep inspiring you to get even better? Pushing yourself to the next level, or on a larger scale, may mean drawing your biggest competition closer to you. In 2023, take every opportunity to learn from those who have been in your shoes; why make the same mistakes when you can get it right the first time?
VIRGO: TEACH OTHERS
You like to be the one who can solve everyone’s problems, but always being the hero puts a lot of pressure on your shoulders. Some people have started to take advantage of your generous nature by developing a habit of dropping off problems and walking away. It’s time to draw a line in the sand; while you’re willing to help, friends, family and coworkers need to meet you halfway and learn to problem-solve for themselves. While it may seem like tough love, it will pay off big time in the middle of 2023 when you’ll have lots of free time to focus on the activities you enjoy the most.
LIBRA: FACE CONFLICTS HEAD-ON
The easiest way to resolve a problem is to ignore it, right? In 2022, you may have turned a blind eye to some behaviors of friends and family that rubbed you the wrong way. Unfortunately, this has only encouraged their bad behavior. In 2023, resolve to solve the problem once and for all by having the conversation(s) you’ve been avoiding. Clearing the air early means way less drama (and more respect) for the rest of the year.
SCORPIO: SHARE YOUR STORY
It’s not easy to open up, especially to strangers, but your story is important! You have something unique to share with the world, especially when it comes to obstacles you’ve faced. Whether you’ve overcome your hurdles or are still working towards your goals, there are many people out there who can benefit from your experience or provide you with the insight you need to move forward. Don’t feel that you need to do everything yourself this year; 2023 is your year to open up, help others and find the support you need to accomplish your biggest goals yet.
SAGITTARIUS: FIND ADVENTURE WHERE YOU LEAST EXPECT IT
As the new year draws closer, you’re probably brainstorming your next overseas experience. But, sometimes it’s easy to overlook the adventures in your own backyard. Have you fully explored the city you live in or are closest to? Maybe your area has a new rock climbing wall, performance center or restaurant just waiting to be discovered! We’re not telling you to put your long-distance travel plans on hold, just to add local adventures to the list, to fill your down months with new sources of excitement and learning.
CAPRICORN: TRULY DISCONNECT
Cap, your 2023 agenda is already filled with new, exciting work opportunities and personal goals. While this full plate has your ambitious spirit eager to get started, be careful not to burn your inner candle at both ends! In 2023, instead of immediately jumping from one completed project to the next, schedule time in between to formally celebrate each accomplishment. Don’t feel guilty for disconnecting and recharging your batteries before tackling the next hill, especially if it involves quality time with family and friends.
AQUARIUS: CHALLENGE OLD ASSUMPTIONS
You take your time coming to conclusions, so once you’ve made up your mind, you’re not likely to change your tune any time soon. That being said, times have changed and so have you! In 2023, challenge yourself to put your old assumptions and beliefs to the test. While you may end up reverting to some of your original conclusions, you’ll certainly learn something new along the way and perhaps even embrace life-changing new truths!
PISCES: REGAIN YOUR OPTIMISM
It’s hard to make the world a better place without having to face its darker side. Change takes time and lots of energy! It can be challenging to keep up the fight without feeling burnt out now and then. Before you get sucked into your next heroic venture, take time to show yourself the same kindness you shower on others! In 2023, make journaling a part of your routine, challenging yourself to consciously remember all of the positive things that make life so beautiful, every day.
