Spend some time today getting your home or workspace in order. Perhaps there’s an area that’s been messy or disorganised for some time — an overstuffed closet or desk drawer, the desktop of your computer or your financial files. It will feel especially good to impose some order on the situation. In fact, it’s a great day for any activities that have to do with arranging, cataloguing or creating a practical system.
May 21-June 21
In conversations and email exchanges today, be sure you’re focused on the right details. In any situation, look for the bottom line: what’s most practical, basic and useful. Consider everything else fluff — the stuff that doesn’t need to concern you. It’s important to keep that in mind today, because it’s easy to get caught up in unimportant variables or concerns that don’t really matter in the long run.
June 22-July 22
Making sure your home and finances are in order brings you a sense of security today. You’re working efficiently, staying on top of things, and that feels good. You know your loved ones can depend on you, as can your employer. Your thorough attention to detail is sure to bring you good things, even if just an inner sense of satisfaction. Taking care of things feels very good.
July 23-August 22
A sense of modesty sets in today. You still welcome approval and recognition from others, but perhaps for different reasons than usual: Now you want to be noticed for your hard work. You want someone to appreciate your commitment to detail. Don’t worry — you’re putting in a strong effort, and people are sure to notice. You’re so naturally artistic that it’s hard not to notice the special flair you bring to even mundane tasks!
August 23-September 22
You expect people to be reasonable today, and for life to make sense. And for the most part, your expectations should be satisfied. You’ll take charge of any problem or challenge with calm grace. You make it look easy to deal with tough situations, but really, you simply trust yourself. You know you have the tools to handle anything that might come up, and that knowledge makes you serene.
September 23-October 22
You’re especially observant today, and harmony in your relationships and surroundings is even more important to you than usual. If someone behaves in a rude or boisterous manner, you inwardly cringe. In fact, any type of social outburst runs against your preference for smooth, orderly interactions. Your mind is keen, so if you have any research or detail work to do, today is the day for it. Nothing escapes your notice.
October 23 – November 22
Today, your innate loyalty and commitment are deeply felt and obvious to others. You don’t have to make any splashy declarations of love. You let everyone know where your loyalties lie simply by being of service to the people you love. This can include your work, too. If you love what you do, you feel every bit as dedicated to it as you might to a member of your own family.
November 23-December 20
Today, you feel constrained by the demands of logic. You’re a philosopher and a seeker. You know the universe is a much broader, more varied place than conventional thinkers might believe. But there’s a time and a place for cool, straightforward reason, too. Today is one of those days when you’re better off being ruthlessly logical than whimsically creative. Rationality can open doors in ways you might never expect.
December 21-January 19
You’re flexing your mental muscles today, proving to yourself and anyone who’s paying attention how truly resourceful you can be. You’re like a cerebral MacGyver, using whatever you have at hand to fulfil the needs of the moment. There’s a great deal of creativity in this economy of movement and effort, Capricorn. You’re living proof that being sensible and capable isn’t boring in the least.
January 20-February 18
A logical perspective is good today, but try not to get locked into a rigid point of view. Sometimes you can be a bit stubborn in your thinking, especially if you’ve already decided you’re right. And now, attempts at being rational could lead to narrow thinking if you aren’t careful to keep your mind open. Keep gathering details and organising them as you go along, but don’t discount elements that don’t seem to make sense.
February 19-March 20
Everyone seems so cool-headed and rational today, and this is hard on you. Of course you understand the importance of logic, but how could reason ever trump feeling? For you, real truth lies in the subjective realm of emotion. Relying solely on logic only gives you half the picture. See if you can combine the two today. Look for patterns in your feelings that coordinate with what you know logically to be true.
