Astrology.Com Daily Home & Garden Horoscopes -- Tuesday July 31, 2012

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You've been raising the roof, burning the candle at both ends with your home-improvement projects, and keeping your house in tip-top shape. Now's a good time to slow down and concentrate on small projects, such as cleaning out your inbox. Search for long-lost friends and family members you've lost touch with.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your partner may want to throw a barbecue bash for all of your closest friends and relatives, while you had something a little more intimate in mind. Their proposal may be more labor intensive, but don't be quick to dismiss suggestions based on the amount of cleaning up you'll have to do -- just get them to promise to help.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
If your housemate seems to have abandoned her cleaning duties in favor of watching television, there could be some deep undercurrents that need attention. Try to read the signs and approach her without being accusatory, and see whether you can get to the bottom of the issue -- just don't assume anything.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
Do your best to be clear and avoid misunderstandings today. Of course you didn't intend to forget your friend's birthday, but be careful of passing it off as no big deal -- it was important to her. Similarly, it was really supposed to be a compliment when you told your neighbor he looked as if he'd lost weight, even if he seemingly took it the wrong way.

You have a healthy ambition today and are yearning to get out into the garden despite your crazy schedule.

Tap into that great stamina.

Looking back on the projects of summers past, you may begin to notice patterns -- or maybe not. If you have a tendency to drop the ball come fall and pick it up the following year, maybe it's time to rethink your strategy and get those projects finished before the cold weather sets in.
