Astrology.Com Daily Home & Garden Horoscopes -- Friday August 24, 2012

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're unusually introverted today. Where could you create a comfortable personal oasis in your place? First think insular. Then, deck out your bathroom, den or boudoir with candles, soothing colors and sweet smells. Next, tuck yourself into your own personal cloud nine and call it a day.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You've been feeling a little possessive lately. It's time to shake things up a bit. Sit down with your child and explain to her who made the heirloom quilt and ask her if she is ready to have it on her bed for a while. Maybe it's even time to teach her your family's legacy of quilting.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Today, probe into the unknown. Scour the ground for moles and cutworms, check windows and walls for any places where the weather gets in or analyze your home's foundation. You are sharp and calculating; put on your goggles and helmet and get to the bottom of this!

Spend the day nurturing your family. Whether they are blood relatives or the chosen few, you'll want to get them all over and closer to you. Make a barbecue pizza with chicken homemade sauce, red onions, pineapple and button mushroom slices -- actually, you may want to prepare two, just in case.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
You have an investigative spirit. Analyze the unseen, my dear Watson. Steam clean rugs and furniture, wash all your windows inside and out and get to the bottom of that pile of laundry. Follow through and you'll crack this case in time for dinner. Use a carpet rake so your pile carpet does not dry in funky ways.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
They say curiosity killed the cat, but don't you even listen to that. Buy a potter's wheel and dig a raku pit, try blowing a glass masterpiece or clip a perfect little bonsai tree. Don't shrink away or raise those cockles, just saunter in and hunt your prey! Craft books will show you the way.

Let your fingers do the walking and soon you'll be on cloud nine!

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
A simple bit of advice: don't get involved with stuff you're not sure of now. You think all you need is a vision and perhaps a how-to guide but this is not always so. If you're even a little fuzzy on a particular project, don't hesitate to consult a professional!
