Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Whatever you think the weather will be on the day of your big party, it will likely do just the opposite. Despite some weird outside influences and a few acts of nature, your naturally sparkling personality will bend and mould to its surroundings, spinning just as effortlessly as a weather vane.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
When you first moved into the house, its dark browns and neutral beiges made the home feel unfamiliar. With a splash of red and accents of burnt umber, the place will suddenly start to come alive. A coat of paint is the real path to making a home feel like your own.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
You are full of good solutions today, from removing silly putty from denim with WD-40, to stripping gum out of hair with peanut butter, and using baking soda to soak up a spill on the carpet. You'll feel as if you could write a self-help book by the end of the day -- if you had any time to spare, of course.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
You learned one skill when you were rather young, and that seems to have tided you over for quite some time. But why not try something similar but different?

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Your family traditions are rich and plenty, though you don't tend to think about them until they're not there. Pick up the family traditions where others have left off, stringing the cranberries or making sourdough waffles on Sunday mornings. This is how history is passed on.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Someday, you think, someday you will know what your house looks like without linoleum. All home improvements can't happen at once, and a roof, sometimes, is more important than hardwood floors. Remember: One step at a time.
