Astrology.Com Daily Home & Garden Horoscopes -- Friday April 13, 2012

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Using people to your advantage is not a bad thing when you are up front with the favor you are asking, and if any, the payback you are offering. (Hint: fresh berries from your garden). A friend with organizational skills will be flattered that you thought she was so talented.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Gardening in the clothes you cooked breakfast in attracts bees -- so does your favorite perfume. Save that spray of cologne for your date tonight. Mist it in the air and walk into the minute droplets of fragrance for an overall scent of freshness.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
A slightly recessed alcove is the perfect place to put a mural, and your art-school-bound niece may be the person to do it. Look at her portfolio and if she is interested in the project, take a chance.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Procrastination is for wimps. Whatever the problem is, deal with it today and experience the good parts of life sooner. Get your mealy bugs drunk on a solution of 10 percent alcohol and 90 percent water -- these pests will not be able to eat your plants or attract ants to the feast.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Reading about all the critters that can invade your garden does not mean they will invade your garden. Organic and other nontoxic solutions are aplenty, so don't be afraid to flex your greenthumb. You might have to face a few challenges on the road to harvest, but that's part of the fun.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
You will find an object today that will become the focal point of an altered-art project. Open your eyes and be aware of the unusual as you take that walk in the park or along the beach. The exercise will elevate your endorphins, which always create a nice, conquer-anything feeling.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Realigning your values after a breakup leads you to explore a long-neglected side of yourself. Music and art may hold an appeal you have not felt since high school. Visit a gallery or take in a concert, and your mood will continue to brighten.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
It is a good day to initiate a big project, such as sanding and repainting your redwood deck. You know it needs to be done. You have procrastinated long enough. Rent a sander if you need it and get to work. When the monsoon rains hit later in the season, you will be glad you protected it now.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Evolving toward your karmic transformation means accepting help from a source you did not think you could count on. It may come in the form of advice, money or both. Be ready to offer thanks, especially if it's a pro bono gift.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Practice patience as you practice your moves. Your sewing machine came together on the assembly line in a day, but that does not mean you will learn how to sew that quickly. Practice times three is a key -- stitch with the grain of the fabric and hold it taught to prevent the underlayer from creeping and becoming shorter.
