If you have a project at work that's wrapping up (or even coming anywhere close to the final stage) today is the day to attend to all the details. If you're developing a new cupcake, start testing the icing. Don't go back to the cutting board for a whole new batter recipe! Whatever you have, you've tested it enough to know it's good -- don't let doubt distract you from the important questions: Frosting or no frosting? Chocolate or pink sprinkles?
Health issues are private, but they affect others. Don't be surprised if others want to talk to you about medical bills or insurance today -- while focusing strictly on the numbers, of course! No one is being singled out.
Strike a sustainable balance. Whether it's less fast food, fewer beers at happy hour and more exercise, your health shouldn't take a backseat to your work. Even you can afford to spend a little time out of the office.
Do you find yourself making excuses over and over again for why you can't tackle this task? Your sweetheart's wondering what's going on, and so are you. A friend plays a key role and sheds some light on this.
Being bombarded with details as soon as the day begins will cause your head to spin, so take an early time out before you completely lose it. A little decadent pleasure will help and a few slices of orange-infused Belgian chocolate could fix you right up.
You are drawn to groups today and others are looking for a good leader. It may seem like an obscure idea, but why not follow your instinct and start that watercolor painting group like you've been wanting to? You could go to different locations together, or you could concentrate your creativity on all of the colorful scenes in your own backyard.
This is a great day to get people in your workplace interested in a pet project. Challenge the gang to sponsor you in a charity walk or run. It's a worthy cause plus your competitive nature will get a workout, too.
Your daily routine is disrupted and turned upside down when a new visitor comes to town. This human's a total clod. They'll step on your kitty bed and knock over your scratching post. Retract those claws -- they won't be around for long.
Your mundane responsibilities are many: check the front door, check the back door, check on the cat, examine the bowls. The list could go on and on. Don't be an agitator, but make sure you are fairly compensated.
(04/20 - 05/20)
Don't let them stop the engines if you have anything to say about it. Sure, even the trained junior engineer thinks it's time to shop shoveling coal and take a little break for routine maintenance. But you know better! This is just the time and place to keep on going -- so grab a shovel and do your best to persuade the powers that be to do maintenance at the next junction.
Someone seems a little too charming today, and it makes you wonder why -- or more accurately, it makes you wonder what they want from you. It goes without saying that you should keep one hand on your wallet when you have these types of nagging doubts.
You can bridge the gap like no other. That's why your ability to form alliances with your colleagues is the key to your success. That skill, along with a big dose of charm and charisma, will come in handy during a tough situation today or tomorrow.
You know the saying 'fake it until you make it'? It's just the ticket for you and your darling, especially if you're dealing with a social obligation that neither of you is looking forward to. You'll end up having fun.
Hard work is what's needed today, so do what you can to slog through. Things will get better in the evening when you'll enjoy chicken posole soup and pork carnitas at a Mexican restaurant.
Your friends and household love to gather around your kitchen or porch, chatting, eating and spending time together. They wouldn't do it if you hadn't created such a warm and welcoming environment. Congratulate yourself on your ability to bring people together. Tonight, fold napkins diagonally on plates and place silverware on top, in a vertical fan.
Be on the lookout for power struggles today. It could be a coworker jockeying for position. Or the little one digging in their heels about bedtime. If you're prepared, you can deal with it all effectively and gracefully.
Look around you today. Someone in your midst is ready to pounce on you. To stay safe, keep your secrets under wraps. Although you're normally open and honest, don't reveal your soul to anyone.
You may not have a lambskin bed or eat steak, but you get plenty of affection. It works both ways. You more than make up for anything lacking in other areas of your human's life.
(05/21 - 06/21)
Dissonance at your job or school might cause you some stress or discomfort at first, but once you accept the fact that everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, you will be fine. Your relationships can withstand some healthy debate, so don't hold back when it comes to disagreeing with them. Just don't get personal about it.
You're weighing things today, and they're apples and oranges. Costs are only one part of the equation; it's the things you can't easily put a number on that bedevil you today. It's all relative.
Between rumors of budget cuts and evidence of layoffs, things are getting ugly around the office. In spite of it all, try to stay professional. You will be judged not on how you fall apart, but how you handle yourself in the face of adversity.
Make merry mischief with your cutie pie. Seek out colorful places and people that will spice up your social life (and other areas while you're at it). Your life as a couple is reinvigorated when you go somewhere new.
Don't let the office busybodies bother you today. You know they don't have ammunition to use against you, even though they'll try. Wow them at lunch by busting out a homemade fried catfish sandwich that'll really give 'em something to talk about.
You're particularly keen on bringing the fresh fragrance of the outdoors into your home today. Take bouquets of fresh flowers inside for placement all around the house. Collect little vases from thrift stores and fashion a little wire hook around the stem to hang on nails and hooks in various, unusual spots.
Many hands make quick work today. No matter what the size of your project, things will go much more smoothly if you recruit a coworker's help. Especially if you remind them that they really don't have to take it all so seriously.
Visit your sacred place today. Whether you've staked out a comfy spot underneath a pile of blankets or a quiet, shady nook outside, hunker down and stay there for the afternoon. You'll emerge energized and ready for a great evening.
Busybodies are discussing your owner's bills. How they spend money is none of their business, especially where your extravagant treats are concerned.
(06/22 - 07/22)
This morning you could receive the materials you've been missing that were keeping you from moving forward with the project you've been itching to wrap up. By the afternoon you're at a real make-it-or-break-it point. Will you push forward, get it done and receive acclaim and congratulations from all sides? Or will you say ho-hum, who cares, and let the whole thing go to pieces? Phooey! Of course you'll make it happen.
Making plans means coming up with the smaller steps that need to be taken today, rather than focusing on the larger goal. It may be that you hand that aspect of the project over to someone else while you look at the big picture.
Don't hesitate to clean where cleaning's due. That pile of clutter around your desk isn't going to organize itself. Spend your downtime today straightening up a little; you'll feel relieved when you can find what you're looking for.
Your emotional depth and substance are what drew your sweetie to you in the first place (well, that and your overwhelming cuteness), but a little lighthearted flirtation every now and then doesn't hurt, either.
Friends will want you to act as their therapist today, but dealing with their myriad problems may be too much. So treat some of them to lunch instead. They won't be able to talk if their mouths are filled with mu gu gai pan.
Your plan to expand your garden next year is starting to feel like a major adjustment you just don't want to deal with. Though you may be having trouble even thinking about the extra work of an ambitious project or advancement to a higher level in a group, try to relax and let things sink in a little. Is there a friend who would like to garden but doesn't have the room? Extend an invitation.
You will find that today is a day to be assertive in order to get what you want. So if you want a new assignment at work or your other half to take the little one off your hands for a few hours, speak up!
The neighborhood kitties look up to you. But today, someone special will ask for your protection. Don't hesitate to offer your help. One day this little feline will return the favor.
Your owners are busy making plans but neither of them is good at working out the details, and you're not the least among them. You can't have a good day until it's decided who will watch you while they're away.
(07/23 - 08/22)
Reach out! No, it's not a home-workout-video kind of reach (although that's not a bad idea, either), but a reach out into the world, to let the world (or a section of it) know what you're planning. You had a couple of terrific ideas lately, and now's a great time to go public with them. Oh, yeah, and why not set aside some time for a little living room workout? Kick those legs up! Bend those knees! Now reach! Reach! Reach!
Big ticket items are out of the question, as you come up with more and more ways to be thrifty. Sticking to an ever-shrinking budget is both an art and a science, and you're the best strategist for the task.
Remember, progress never comes without a few unexpected hurdles and setbacks. So don't be surprised if a business strategy you thought was perfect needs tweaking or a reassessment. And by the way, throwing a fit won't help your cause.
Lately it seems as if love can be ludicrously simply or unbelievably complicated -- or maybe a little bit of both. Learn to laugh at these circumstances, and you'll soon see them working out to your advantage.
A budget review may reveal an unexpected surplus, so splurge a little today! A shopping spree will be fun but exhausting. Take a break at a French bistro. Cheesy onion soup and crab and mushroom quiche will give you energy for round two.
People are drawn to you as you radiate strength and capability -- don't be surprised when a small crowd gathers in your yard to hear what you have to say as you're watering the flowers out front. You could move mountains today, or tons of dirt, or you could help someone to change their mind completely. A neighborhood watch program could be immanent.
Uh, oh. A lull in activities can lead to bored little ones if you're not careful. With a little encouragement, your child will naturally break out the crayons, construction paper and glitter and unleash some fresh creativity.
What will it be? In or out? Your inability to decide where to spend the day will drive your human crazy, so figure it out. Pick wisely -- your choice will set the mood for the day.
Your owner is not impulsive as a rule, but they're even more thrifty and conservative than usual these days. You don't mind staying within budget but remind your owner that variety is the spice of life, especially when your chow is involved.
(08/23 - 09/22)
Maybe you've had a plan for a fantastic new approach to work in mind for a while now. Maybe you've been letting the plan incubate, and you've been making sure that the temperature stays just right. Maybe today your little hatchling is going to make a few little cracks with its little beak in its little incubation eggshell. Maybe today's the day your great idea bursts forth and shows everybody its wings. Bravo!
The issues of the day take a bit of analysis -- with the emphasis being on the word 'bit.' The numbers won't be rubbed away like a worry stone if you go over and over and over them. Once you realize what they are, you have no logical choice but to accept them.
Manage things from backstage and the sidelines today. Maybe you can't be in the spotlight on this particular assignment, but that's okay! You'll get another chance to show your boss (and the world) the miracles you can perform.
You and your sweetheart have all the relevant information. You've done the calculations and drawn up the plans. Now it's time to make a decision. Try not to fret. And remember, both of your opinions count.
Having too much to think about today will give you a major headache. A three-bean salad or mild chili could work better than aspirin. Beans are high in magnesium, which has been proven to beat beat head pain.
Wow! Your fridge looks fantastic and you've clearly spent quite some time organizing your various music collections. Before you start pruning your bonsai tree, take a minute to ask yourself if you might be procrastinating, just a little bit. There's a particular chore that should really be your priority today such as vacuuming crumbs from corner spinning cupboards.
Today, you may find you're just like your kiddo in some ways. If you're around a lot of people, you may become so keyed up you can't relax later. Schedule some extra downtime in the evening, so both of you can chill out a little.
Trust your instincts today, especially when you're confronted with a potentially dangerous situation. The vibrations of the universe will tell you what course to take -- making a safe decision is up to you.
When your owner starts to tidy up, you know they've finished one project and needs to start another. Make yourself scarce while they get organized. You'll be back on the couch again once they're on to other things.
(09/23 - 10/22)
If you're fixing somebody's plumbing, they're going to be grateful. Ditto if you're reconfiguring their computer. Ditto if you're helping them decide what to wear to a career-altering interview. Ditto if you're lending an ear while they go over the problems in their relationship. You have lots of talents, and your ability to solve problems is one of them. The folks in your vicinity are sure lucky to have you!
It's not looking good for your short-term goals. There may be too many details involved for one person to handle. Instead of being overwhelmed, why not reach out for help? There are plenty of people in your network who would love to lend a hand.
No one expects you to finish it all at once. Remember this today when work starts getting hairy and unmanageable. At some point your workload may become so overwhelming, you'll feel like doing nothing at all. Take things a little bit at a time.
A skilled juggler like you can pull off that whole tricky work-life balance thing, but someone else (your sweetie, perhaps?) learns best by example. Give them the benefit of your hard-won wisdom -- discreetly, of course.
Let go of grudges you may be holding against coworkers today. Life is too short for negative feelings. So invite one or two frenemies to lunch, although you'll swear you have no idea how all that Tabasco wound up in their Cobb salads.
You can't help looking at leaves today without noticing the intricate structure of veins. And when you walk by a house on your block you wonder how they managed to design that porch and still keep the tree. You have a special awareness as to noticing the structure of things today; be on the lookout for inspiring architecture you may want to incorporate into your dream home.
You may have to explain the bigger picture to your little one today. They need to know why you must ask permission before you go in the water, and why you can't stay in the pool until your lips turn blue.
Guess what? Everything won't go your way today. Don't pout. Accept that life is a matter of compromise and sacrifice. You'll have plenty of food in your bowl and tons of attention later on.
You're generally a good listener, but a cat fight can make you spring into action. And when your cat is involved, there's no holding you back. Charging right in is better than doing nothing at all any day.
(10/23 - 11/21)
You're a good person to have in charge. Why? Because, for one thing, you are a very responsible human being. If you have something to accomplish, you'll accomplish it. Also, you're a good person to put in charge because you pay attention to the little things and to the big things and to all the things in between. This is no small challenge -- and no small accomplishment. So pat yourself on the back, baby. It's good to have you here.
You can't take care of your own business if you spend all day doing favors for others. This isn't an 'I'll scratch your back, you scratch mine' type of situation, either. You need to focus on your own bottom line today, or watch it sink.
Do the grunt work now and you'll enjoy big rewards down the line. Doing your homework is critical when it comes to securing funding or nabbing a major project. A little preparation now will put you heads and shoulders ahead of the competition.
A light touch is what's called for, especially if one of you is in a grumpy mood. With a few quips and a considerate gesture (flowers at the breakfast table, perhaps?), you can turn this situation all the way around.
You'll zero in on problems at work today and know immediately how to solve them. You'll apply the same eagle eye to your dinner later, and with just one taste you'll know that your chicken tortilla soup needs more cumin.
It might not be the best idea to start sanding the molding in the living room in preparation for your detailed painting project right before you go on vacation. You may have the urge to get the project underway, but you wouldn't want to leave unfinished business for the rest of your household or worse, have a mess to return to.
Go ahead and take on an important assignment at work. You're ready to take charge and will likely score big points with your positive attitude. Later, though, you'll be willing to let your little one decide major matters like what's for dinner.
Your relationship with yourself is the most important connection you'll ever make. Unfortunately, you're feeling disjointed and distant from everyone, including you. Take a break from your routine, find a quiet place and relax in the sun.
It's 'Do A Friend A Favor' day. That works for your owner, too. Stay out of the trash or give your human some extra affection, and you'll get some extra biscuits in return.
(11/22 - 12/21)
Life is in the details. Do you drink coffee with soymilk or green tea with honey? Do you toast the toast or boil the water first? Do you go to work via the bus along the water or take the bus that runs through downtown? What catches your eye en route? These are little things, sure, but they give your life texture and flavor. And because you are a particularly tuned-in kind of person, you know that recognizing, exploring and honoring the little things is a key to happiness.
Breathe! Breathe again! You're over reacting to some news today, either good or bad. The numbers can be staggeringly positive and the hyperventilation will still get the better of you! Learning to relax is a must for the day.
Slow down and do it right the first time. After all, you're in no hurry to finish right now. If you squander your time by rushing ahead and glossing over the details, you'll only have to backtrack later.
It's the small things that make the biggest difference in a relationship, from the way you kiss each other good morning to your bedtime rituals. Pay attention, and be kind and courteous to one another.
Today won't be an opportune moment to ask for a raise. Instead, go to a Chinese restaurant for lunch and order steamed crab with glutinous rice, a dish that symbolizes wealth. It'll be yummy even if it doesn't put extra cash in your pocket.
You feel as if you're beating your head against a brick wall as far as your zoning problems are concerned. Try not to get down about it and believe that a solution is possible as long as you persevere. Whatever your challenge today, try to keep your chin up and your legal notices from the town in order.
Don't worry, be happy. This about sums up your philosophy today. You and your little one will be spreading the gospel of fun throughout the neighborhood today. You're sure to make quite a few converts, maybe even those new neighbors.
You better be ready to laugh at yourself today. A huge feline faux pas forces you into the center of attention and not in a good way. Stay humorous and light. By tomorrow that snafu will be ancient history.
Others in your doghouse may drive you crazy. If you can't stand to hear one more bark or whine, or one more cat's meow, spend some time alone. The yard never looked so good.
(12/22 - 01/19)
You have a real caretaker's streak in you. Do you take care of business? Of people? Your family? Your friends? Your neurotic coworkers? Be careful not to let your inner caretaker take over; that is, only caretake when it's appropriate. When it's not -- maybe with your neurotic officemate who is an adult and should do their own caretaking -- don't give in to the urge to jump in and fix everything.
The facts aren't easily available but that won't stop you from digging them up. You don't even have to leave your desk chair. You can travel long distances via the internet to unearth the numbers you need today.
Long-distance phone calls or emails to faraway colleagues will prove invaluable today. Others in your industry can help you muddle your way through a tough situation. Don't worry -- you'll return the favor someday soon.
A minor ego flare-up could make things around the house slightly uncomfortable. One of you has to give or this could be a case of irresistible force vs. immovable object. Who's it going to be?
You'll dissect work problems like a well-trained surgeon today. By laying them bare, you'll be better able to solve them. You'll apply the same workmanship to dinner tonight when you'll carve up a medium-rare filet mignon with the aplomb of a world-class fencer.
The way your fresh beets stain your cutting board when you slice them open just gives you more opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the natural magenta. Eat them simply steamed with dark, green spinach and crumbled white goat cheese. You'll be in heaven.
This might not be an easy day when all is said and done, since problems may crop up in your place of business. Fortunately, you love a good challenge and this is one day that you will rise to the occasion.
Surrender to the universe and let it determine the course of your day. Don't struggle to live your life. You'll find a new freedom if you let go, retract those claws and tap into positive energy.
Just what are you looking for in the trash can? The facts, ma'am, just the facts. You know last night's dinner is in there somewhere, and you'll be caught in the act of doing your research.
(01/20 - 02/18)
It's not surprising that people turn to you when they have a conflict they can't resolve alone. After all, you give good advice. And, a lot of the time, you just listen -- which is what most people need, most of the time, anyway. If a coworker comes to you, lend them your ear. But hold off on lending them money. It might be the kind of fix that doesn't fix things for them (or you) in the long term.
No one at the table has the same agenda today -- but that doesn't mean you can't work out an equitable solution for everyone involved, likely without admitting a thing. You may never get them to tip their hand, so don't bother trying.
You'll have a tendency to blow things out of proportion today. So before you turn this little skirmish into a major battle, make sure it's what you're really after. Sometimes watching and waiting is better than making a federal case of it.
Are you and your sweetie pie on the same wavelength about the next step you're taking? Or is one of you thinking about having fun right now while the other is thinking about the future? It's time to sort this out.
Be wary of working closely with others today. Conflicts could arise and the fur could fly. You'll be in better company later when you dine with friends. They'll be agreeable to everything and they won't even mind if you get anchovies on the pizza.
You have one of those days when your dream life of the night before seems to be with you all day. You feel an intense sense of nostalgia as you putter around your garden in the long rays of afternoon light. Pick a new perfect spot for your hammock or chair swing.
You may be of two minds about whether or not to take that new work assignment. Instead of making a snap decision, take a few minutes to organize your feelings today. You'll then be in a much better position to make a decision.
A storm is coming, either literally or figuratively. Normally, the growing brouhaha would send you scampering to your favorite hiding spot, but not today. Feel the power and energy created by Mother Nature.
Everyone has a different agenda today: the dog walker is pulling one way; some dogs are lunging ahead while others are busy smelling the roses. It's one of those chaotic walking days when a nap on the couch may just seem like a better deal.
(02/19 - 03/20)
You have a kind of sixth sense for when other people are under stress. You automatically respond by extending an offer of compassion -- whether in words, with a gesture or just by silently acknowledging what they're going through. It might be time you start expecting the same kind of deference to sensitive feelings for yourself. And expecting something is more than half the way to receiving it.
You're being overly critical, and what adds insult to injury is doing it before you know all the facts. Make sure you are being open-minded and fair in all your decision-making today. Let the numbers speak for themselves.
Empathy more than pressure will help you seal the deal today. So when you're dealing with a difficult customer or client today, put yourself in their situation. Maybe they're just being cautious -- after all, things are tough all over.
Not all of your partner's friends are to your liking, but not all of your friends are their cup of tea, either. Trying to force the issue won't help. Be diplomatic and understanding and you'll work this out.
If you've experienced a disappointment recently, take the time to process it. The company of coworkers may have a healing effect, so join them for lunch. Get something extra nutritious to give you energy. Lentil soup or falafel fits the bill.
You happen to crave an intensely flavored cheese paired with a zesty array of fresh fruit -- peaches, grapes and blackberries. What better way to spend an afternoon than with a picnic on a hill or at the beach? Throw in a baguette, some sparkling water and a blanket and you're ready to enjoy the simple pleasures. Don't forget the wine or sparkling juice!
Tempting as it is to dream the day away, there is work to be done. Focus and give your best effort while on the job or completing your other chores. And stay alert when you hit the park with your kiddo, as they deserve your full attention.
Ground yourself in reality today. A world full of wet food and constant attention just doesn't exist. Find happiness in the gifts you already receive. You're one lucky kitty -- it's about time you felt that gratitude.
Your owner is super analytical when it comes to relationships, but this one has taken them by surprise. They didn't have all the facts beforehand; if they knew they would be swept off their feet, they would have stayed home.
