It's not like you to think about shopping when you really don't need or want anything -- and there isn't even a sale going on! But you're thinking about it now. You just can't wait to get to the mall and stroll down a boulevard of shops, or head off to anywhere else there might be something interesting and unusual to buy. Well, keep your wallet in your pocket, at least for a little while. This, too, shall pass.
Your drive to get ahead usually keeps the blinders on you, but today you can't help but see advantages to pounce on everywhere you look. It's almost too much of a distraction for your own good. When you start losing sight of the big numbers to earn some smaller ones, it's time to rethink.
Whatever you do today, put in the effort as if your job depends on it. It may seem as though your reputation is on the line with this current project, but don't worry: It isn't, really. Still, that's no excuse for doing shoddy work.
The best approach to tackling a relationship obstacle is right in front of you. Step away from the problem for a while; come back later with a fresh outlook on the situation.
Today could be a good day to finally slow down. Let the others kill themselves multitasking. You'll want to kick back, watch movies on TV, and eat something tasty and easy to make. Oh, heck -- order takeout, why don't you?
Despite the warm weather and the fresh produce from the farmer's market, you still have to put in your time at work. Consider ways, such as answering your e-mails wirelessly from your deck, you can fiddle with your schedule so you can make it home for a few hours of glorious sunshine.
You can do this. Get the tyke to day care and yourself to work on time. Pick up the dry cleaning and the salad for dinner. And of course you'll remember that form which must be filed today. Oh yes, it must.
Your relentlessness will reap big dividends today. Go ahead: meow a little more and purr a bit louder. You'll find a few extra snacks in your bowl, and some serious behind-the-ear strokes.
Your drive for the tennis ball won't let you rest. You'll work yourself into a lather if your owner lets you; luckily for you, their arm is only human.
(04/20 - 05/20)
Even though you'll want to get along, it may not be entirely possible at this moment. An emotional tug-of-war seems imminent. The good news is you're confident enough to stop tugging when you realize someone could get hurt -- someone who's not nearly as well-armed as you are, for example. On one of your bad days, that could be just about anyone. And this is a good day.
The more you understand your foe, the easier it is to triumph over them. Seeing things from their perspective is a real eye-opener for you, and it gives you the upper hand in ways you could never have anticipated. You just may be the one to extend the olive branch. Some things are worth more than money.
You need a break -- not a two-day road trip, but a real, bona-fide vacation. Taking a trip is not as daunting a prospect as you think. All you need is a little cash and initiative. Once you ask for the time off, you'll be obligated to stick to your plans.
Step out of your own shoes and wear your significant other's for a while. Gaining perspective by looking at a problem through someone else's eyes could help you find the solution you seek.
Move just as slowly as you like today. You deserve it after a hectic schedule. You may have tons of leftovers in the fridge, but you can take those to work. Go out for dinner tonight. Thai or Burmese could be good choices. Pad Thai or yellow curry prawns will be a good choice.
While your neighbor means well, you couldn't be more tired of her preaching style of giving gardening advice. Sure, you have plenty to learn about a garden, but you would prefer to have a little space for trial and error without being scolded when your plans don't work out. Be tactful yet forthright when you tell her how you feel.
What's taking you so long? Your kiddo may wonder why you're dawdling so much. Show them how at a slower pace they can enjoy the sunbeams, all the new buds and leaves, and watch the inchworm measure each one out.
You've always thought of yourself as an avant-garde feline. Let's face it -- your favorite napping place is a ratty, old towel; you should reconsider your trend-setting tastes.
You can run but you just can't hide. Plans are firm when the shampoo bottles come out.
(05/21 - 06/21)
Speaking of being frugal, you may need to pull back your emotions just a bit, even if you were just getting ready to let them out -- and it certainly looks as if you were. But no matter what else is going on, pay close attention to your emotional antennae. If they tell you to charge ahead, go for it. If not, sit tight, regardless of what anyone else says. After all, when has your intuition ever let you down?
You love nothing more than blaming others for the place you find yourself in today. If it's last, then others held you back. If it's second, then the winner cheated. Whatever it is that you feel is not fair, it's up to you to take responsibility for it. How else can you expect to change?
If the balance of power shifts suddenly, don't panic. A colleague may soon be bestowed with new authority or responsibility. This may be a bit difficult to accept, but try to deal with it graciously. You'll get your turn at the helm soon enough.
Hardworking couples have difficulty knowing when to take a break and have some purposeless fun time. Yours is no exception. Learn to relax.
You may feel hard-boiled today, and it's not because of all those deviled eggs left over from yesterday. Being aggressive could be a good thing as you hit the stores today. You'll be ruthless in your returns, but don't forget to eat. A bacon and egg sandwich with roasted peppers could be nice.
There are some vegetables that scare your taste buds. Perhaps you didn't eat them growing up, and that's why they seem so exotic. Be it artichoke or eggplant, they follow the same basic instructions as a simple potato. Open up your world of produce this week. Steam the artichoke and dip the leaves in butter or light mayo.
You may have some serious thinking to do about a work-related matter. Someone needs to know your true motives, so spell them out. Later, it'll only take a few minutes in the park with your baby to reclaim your playful side.
Although it's hard for anyone to put a leash on you, soften your rigid veneer today. Go with vulnerability this afternoon. Curl up on your favorite human's warm lap. You need the attention.
One of your owners is out of the picture and you have no idea why. The ways of human relationships are not clear to you or any dog, but rest assured, you were not the responsible party.
(06/22 - 07/22)
If anyone has a right to be impatient with roadblocks, it's you. You always try your best to keep things running smoothly, and, for the most part, you do a fine job. But some things even you can't fix, and you're about to encounter one of them: The immovable will of someone who doesn't understand the concept of bending. Don't be impatient with them. Their help will be invaluable when it comes to keeping a relationship together down the road.
It would take something extreme to get you out of your comfort zone today -- and that's just what might happen. It's the kind of experience that leaves you well positioned once it's over, but hard to deal with during the moment. You can turn things around once you stick your neck out.
Your words, as much as your ideas, are subject to misinterpretation, especially in a public venue. So make sure you rehearse your pitch carefully, or others may get the wrong idea. Organize your notes and practice what you have to say.
Missed the memo on separating work woes from troubles of the heart? Bringing work home is fine, but keep the politics at your desk. Your loved one may offer an ear, but keep your rants to a minimum.
You may not feel like leaving the house today, and there will be nothing wrong with that. It'll be the perfect day to relax with your family and put those leftovers to good use. Make something easy. Ham will be perfect in a quiche or as part of a casserole with rice, cheese and asparagus.
Though the sun is shining and day at the beach is in the works, you may not feel like leaving the house. Everything that you wish to do today is indoors. You're beginning to realize that you're fine with the prospect of not basking in the sun today. You're creative mood is sunlight enough. Lay your beads out in the concave line of a rule and your will have your bracelet strung in no time.
Problems in life are inevitable, but that's no reason to get yourself all worked up today. Your boss and coworkers are much more understanding than you give them credit for. It will all prove a tempest in a teapot.
You adapt to your human's schedule with ease. This harmonious relationship provides the foundation for a trustworthy bond. Your flexibility is a source of comfort and reassurance; keep tuning in to your household energy.
Good dog? Bad dog? There's never any in between with you. True to form, you behave either really well or tremendously bad.
(07/23 - 08/22)
Here comes your second wind -- just a little too late for your taste. Of course, now that it's here, you won't be able to live with yourself if you don't at least try to do something with it. It's okay, just let it go. You'll feel far worse if you exhaust yourself by doing anything at all. Besides, you won't believe how much you'll get done after a little R and R. Rest is crucial for a brain like yours.
Don't waste your time arguing with someone who wants to block your progress -- they don't have the ultimate say anyway. Find the person in a position of authority and deal directly with them. Cut out the middleman.
Coworkers may have something valuable and entirely unexpected to contribute today. Listen to their suggestions before you set this plan in stone. Just because you know how you want things done, don't discount the input of others.
Words soothe but they also sting. Don't let your sweetie say things that bruise your ego. In the heat of an argument, stand up for yourself. Self-respect isn't a phase.
You've got a strong sense of what you want and you'll get it today as you return some unnecessary items. You really don't need another pair of shoes, but a slow cooker is another matter entirely.
You may be digging your new bran flake diet, and tofu may be your new best friend, but don't be surprised when others don't climb aboard the bandwagon. The smells of barbecued meats and cooling pies are drifting from yard to yard this time of year, and restraint may be difficult for some. Keep track of the inches you have lost for your own benefit.
Watch your kiddo go after what they want today. Nothing stands between them and that extra cookie. Today you should pursue your own goals with that same determination. There's a strong chance you will succeed.
Arrogance might creep into your consciousness today if you aren't vigilant. Your haughty attitude has a tendency to push others away, so stay grounded to stave off loneliness.
Get your ego out and take it for a ride. As top dog you deserve a little arrogance, so gloat with enthusiasm.
(08/23 - 09/22)
You've never been good at waiting, hoping or praying. It's what other people do -- lesser people who are more easily appeased. No, taking action has always been your favorite tactic. At the moment, however, you'll have to learn the virtue of patience. You'll also have to help yourself understand you can't be responsible for anyone else's actions. That will be a bit trickier.
You're tired to talking -- and more importantly, you can't afford it anymore, either! You need to make a move, either with a so-called partner or on your own. Let those who want to sit around and fantasize about their plans do so while you take action.
See, all that work wasn't for naught. Finally, your efforts are paying off! Whether it's that raise or promotion you've been pursuing, or just the successful end of an arduous and trying project, you're about to achieve what you've been toiling away for.
How dedicated are you to your relationship? Reevaluate your commitment to your sweetie and go from there. If you're in for good, act like it.
Flirting may have paid off as you've scored a date for tonight. Dinner is always a nice icebreaker, so make reservations. Go for something out of the ordinary. Italian is always great, but Moroccan food is a surefire conversation starter.
You've been a lone crafter for quite a while, getting your fix through magazines, books and craft blogs. Suddenly, out of nowhere, you may discover a new buddy who has similar interests. Gone are the days of your solo ventures once you stumble upon this important person. Her smaller fingers may handle the brads and beads for cards so you can enjoy completing your delicately embellished designs.
It looks like all of your hard work is finally paying off. The kiddo shows great progress, be it in crawling or arithmetic or reading. Celebrate these wonderful successes and let them know how proud you are of their accomplishments.
You will reach emotional critical mass today. You can't go backward and you're afraid to move forward. The good news: You don't have to make any decisions. Find a dark, cozy place, curl up in a furry ball, and fall into a long, deep sleep. You'll wake with a new perspective.
Meeting an eligible dog is a healthy ambition -- there's no argument about that. Your own eligibility after a recent trip to the vet, however, poses the only problem with the equation.
(09/23 - 10/22)
Hurry up and wait. One step forward and two steps back. That's how you're feeling today, and even though you can be patient if you try really hard, you're not feeling especially tolerant right now. The good news is once you're over this irritating hump -- once you're done spinning your wheels -- you'll be out of a rut and able to see things clearly. And, with any luck, this particular situation shouldn't come around again.
Old issues are haunting you today. You can't shake the feeling that if you lost before, you can lose again. Of course, anything is possible, but most people learn from their mistakes and move on; you are no exception. Hold onto your wallet and you'll be just fine.
Are you fighting just to fight? Would you rather be right or happy? Remember who holds the cards here, and act accordingly. Don't tangle with the boss unless you're really convinced it's worth the battle and the ensuing consequences.
Sentimental moments make for great movie scenes, but can cause unneeded strife between you and your partner. Resist the urge to dredge up painful memories for the sake of drama.
You may experience a little letdown today. That's natural, but don't let it ruin your day off. Take in a funny movie or take a peaceful hike; you'll feel better afterwards. Bring home burritos or hoagies for dinner tonight.
Your property line may end at the edge of the fence, but there are no limits to what you can see in the open territory beyond your house. Become a spectator to your natural surroundings, appreciating the way that plants grow wildly compared to your thought-out, manicured garden. Sprinkle wildflower seeds in a flowerbed and see what comes up where.
It's out with the old, in with the new today. You can make excellent progress when weeding out the closets. But getting your kiddo to part with that ragged teddy bear or funky blankie might be quite another thing.
Your fundamental personality combines confidence and self-esteem. Recognition and admiration builds on your natural assets; therefore, you work hard to reap these emotional benefits.
Things at home feel unbalanced, but be honest: Are you really getting fewer treats and less attention than you deserve, or are those old issues?
(10/23 - 11/21)
Speaking of plans, don't be put off if you run into a snag in yours. For the next couple of days, getting where you want to be will be tough, and getting in touch with someone you're trying to reach may be even tougher. That doesn't mean you should give up. Your perseverance is the stuff of legends, and anyone who'd deliberately avoid you would obviously have to be a glutton for punishment.
You're thinking of the past, but not in a good way. You're glad it's behind you. Looking forward is the healthiest approach to life -- and if that means dangling your own financial carrot on a stick, do so. You're entitled to motivate yourself any way that works.
There may never be a better time to implement good ideas and squelch bad ones. After all, you and your boss are on the same page. Take advantage of this newfound camaraderie while you have the opportunity.
Recent mood swings may be a result of relationship stress. If you want your symptoms to fade away, try thinking with a more positive outlook.
All of those leftovers in the fridge may be calling your name today, but show some self-control or you could spend the entire day eating. Hit the gym instead and work off yesterday's indulgences. Then you won't feel so guilty about doing the same thing all over again tonight.
Even if you have opposing ideas with your housemate, communication is the key to your happiness. You may settle on a paint color that was neither person's first choice, but it is better than the color of resentment, right? Consider a textured finish to add excitement one wall and the whole room.
You are known for extreme determination or willpower, which others will discover today. You might take up the fight for something important, like a day care space at work. Choose your battle carefully and victory can be yours.
You favor principles over popularity. The humans and animals around you admire this trait. They strive to emulate your character and live a clean life.
Alpha dog -- you? You don't have an ambitious bone in your body unless the one in your mouth has plans you don't know of.
(11/22 - 12/21)
As of this evening, you'll be feeling even more curious than your nature already ensures and more than willing to investigate all your options. You'll be eager for new information and new experiences. There may be a stumbling block or two on your way, but you learned a long time ago to treat stumbling blocks as simple bumps in the road. Besides, if anyone out there knows exactly how to navigate obstacles via shortcuts, it's you.
You don't work well with someone that you're forced to deal with today. Stay focused on the common goal rather than on your way of accomplishing it. Being flexible is the best way to boost your bottom line under today's circumstances.
Morale could use a boost, and you're just the person to make a difference. Your bubbly mood has rarely been more luminescent, and it's rubbing off on those around you. You're the light of the office and they're seeking your gleam.
Skip your usual impulse to buy last-minute items. Instead, save up for something big both you and your honey can enjoy together. Make it a surprise!
Going shopping today could be more of a headache than it's worth. You could end the day feeling drained. Instead, relax with friends. Enchiladas and nachos at a boisterous Mexican restaurant may not be peaceful, but it sure will be fun.
Your approach to almost everything you make is quite original. For this reason, crafting lessons from friends are often lost on you, and cooking tips go right over your head. Get a blank book. Write down your own recipes and project how-to's. Give the directions to your daughter or a friend.
Your generous nature is fired up today. You may be tempted to get out the checkbook when a friend is in need or a charity comes calling. But a tough financial situation may be around the corner, so practice restraint.
Today, stay in the present. You'll have a tendency to relive ugly situations, but for your own good, don't go there. Enjoy the sunshine on your face and the cool breeze in your fur later this afternoon -- revel in life's nuances.
Belly up to the fixin's bar. You're used to going about things in a direct manner, so when the ingredients are right there, you'll have no problem with making your own lunch.
(12/22 - 01/19)
If you didn't take an oath or write your promise in blood, you might want to consider changing your plans for tonight -- mostly because a startling message or event this morning will convince you that wherever you were planning to be isn't where you really want to end up. You have a new beginning on tap. Better get busy making it everything you know it can be. After all, you're the only person who can.
Things are moving too slowly for you to ever get where you need to be. The fines and late fees are really adding up and soon it won't matter how much you are able to accelerate. It's now or never, Capricorn -- put the pedal to the medal.
Big moves now will lead to big results. Don't be afraid to take a risk. There is no limit to what you can achieve if you're willing to break through every obstacle. If you let fear and intimidation run your professional life, you'll get nowhere.
Usually your high energy excites everyone around you, but today it may do the opposite. Your sweetie is rundown and tired, so keep your hyper attitude on the down low just for today.
You'll have positive results by putting new spins on any leftovers you have in the fridge. Bland chicken sandwiches can be reinvented by using garlic aioli instead of mayo, while broccoli is great when remained as a spicy salad. All it takes is a little imagination and a big appetite!
'Look what I made!' you'll cry out, holding a gorgeous lattice crust pie to a group of astonished onlookers. Take pride and joy in your accomplishments today. You should be pleased as pie at the way you've honed your skills. Put the ice cream on the side so you can savor the lattice crust in each bite.
This is more like it -- a high-energy day in which to get things off the ground. Perhaps literally, like a toy pickup blitz. But your brain is also working on putting that big plan into action. Make some phone calls.
You expect the creme de la creme of people, places and things. Prestige is the root of your happiness, but sometimes you hurt others in the process. Although exclusion is subtle, those around you get the message.
It's a great day if you're interested in impressing others. You're not that type of dog, though, so don't think twice about recognition.
(01/20 - 02/18)
Still making that to-do list and checking it twice? Of course you are. You're the very soul of diligence and perseverance -- which will come in handy tonight and tomorrow. Oh, and if you need help, don't forget that age-old expression, a favorite of business managers across the globe: Delegate! Certain individuals are more than happy to take over part of the job. Don't be shy.
You don't have to understand exactly why things are happening today -- but only because you have to react to them with lightening speed. You'll have a breather soon, and you should use it to figure out exactly why you're in the pickle you are, so you can avoid it in the future.
Discipline is more crucial than ever. Keep your head down and don't respond to the solicitations -- fun or professional -- of colleagues. They know better than to take it personally. If you're not careful, you'll be inundated by distractions today.
What goes around comes back twofold, so be sure to keep your couple karma in good shape. Wishing bad tidings on other couples that you believe to be deceitful wastes your precious time.
You'll hear that leftover salmon calling your name today, so don't try and fight it. By using a little imagination you can go beyond humdrum salads. Rich, savory croquettes with a thick sauce will give that fish a new zing, and this dish may be even better than the original!
It's not that you're on a strict diet, but a few items have been penciled on to your 'do not eat' list. Although it may seem like a sacrifice to pass on chocolate this week, your love affair with watermelon and fresh peaches is just beginning. Cut a watermelon in half and fill it with melon balls and chunks of fresh fruit.
Don't try to fight it. Today, your little one will have their ups and downs, tears and smiles, and that's perfectly all right. All you need to do is be there for them through it all -- especially for the down times.
You are one whiny cat today. No matter how hard your friends try, they can't please you. Search for the source of your obstinacy. You'll find the answer in unresolved fear and anger.
Act less like a dog and more like a goat. Don't flail away all day long. Keep your head down and your determination up.
(02/19 - 03/20)
The universe seems to be deliberately tossing obstacles between you and the object of your affection. Whether it's a thousand miles, an ex who just won't let go or someone's responsibilities to family, don't let it get to you. You've been up against worse challenges. Nothing is insurmountable if you really want to be together. Find a way around the roadblocks. It'll make a great story for your grandkids.
If you're waiting for angels to come rescue you, you may be waiting for quite a while. Your motivation will kick in way before you get to that point of needing to be saved anyway. In fact, you're feeling those first restless urges to move forward. Make the most of them!
Coworkers will help you through a tough situation. Whether you're on shaky ground professionally or just out of your league, let them know you need assistance. They'll be more than happy to oblige.
Matchmaking can be fun. You have plenty of single friends that you know would get along, and maybe even fall in love. Put your Cupid skills to the test.
Help yourself by helping friends today. Inviting them all to dinner will keep them well fed and you'll get rid of a lot of groceries that might otherwise go bad. Creamy corn chowder will be a great starter, while gnocchi with a thick, savory oyster mushroom sauce will be an unexpected yet pleasant surprise.
That's it? You might be wondering those very words as you watch cheesy breakfast biscuits rise in the oven. So many of the things that you thought were truly difficult will turn out to be deceptively easy today. To remove coffee stains from a table cloth, pour boiling water on the fabric until the stain vanishes. Launder as usual.
It's good to be well-connected and today you will appreciate that. Perhaps someone will come to your assistance about that last-minute revision to your tax return. Or give you a tip about a new job. It's good to have such friends.
Take pride in your commitment to excellence. You tackle projects with full gusto. Organize that cluttered toy bin already. You'll feel a sense of freedom when you clear out the chaos.
You finally have friends in high places. A scrappy alley buddy makes it to the top, and you're the right-hand dog.
