Be methodical as you work through your task list today. A cautious, conservative approach works best, especially if you’re dealing with resources, such as the family budget or funds at the office. If you find any problems in the numbers you’re working with, it’s easy enough to trace them back to their point of origin. Details don’t escape you now, so you know your work is thorough and complete.
May 21-June 21
It’s hard to make a decision today, because there are so many different factors and variables to consider. But after a certain point, you’re just splitting hairs. If you really feel so overwhelmed by details that you just can’t make an informed decision, put your project aside or ask for an extension. Or ask someone whose energy is calmer and more level than yours for their input. They might spot the most logical choice immediately.
June 22-July 22
Be attentive with your loved ones today. You may not feel especially affectionate, and in fact might feel a bit shy. But you can still get the message across in quiet ways that you care. This can be as simple as cooking someone a good meal or bringing them their favourite magazine or newspaper. In fact, any act of service today, however small, is a wonderful way to remember others.
July 23-August 22
A dramatic response to a problem that arises today probably isn’t your best bet. Instead, go for the quiet, sensible solution — no matter how much you might wish you could swoop in like a superhero to save the day. Even if your efforts aren’t noticed, you can take pride in knowing that you were instrumental in smoothing over some mistake that could have really messed things up if it weren’t for you.
August 23-September 22
A clear, commonsense approach is your best bet today in just about any situation. This shouldn’t be difficult for you, since you’re practical by nature and you avoid extra or unnecessary steps. Put your natural attention for detail to work, whether you’re polishing up a project for your boss or telling your child a bedtime story. Your keen eyes notice all those little variables that make such a difference.
September 23-October 22
Your focus today should be on creating balance at home and in your own body — the two places where you live. This means eating wholesome foods, getting some exercise, and straightening things around the house. Put up some new prints on the wall or grace the couch with a pair ofÂ colourful cushions. Creating this type of simple harmony makes it feel as if you’ve cleansed your soul.
October 23 â€“ November 22
If you’re managing a team of people today or reviewing someone’s work, make sure you don’t slip into a critical frame of mind. Your mood is fine, your energy is strong, and you’re focused on the shortest distance from point A to point B. Thus, you might not realise when your words sound sharp or judgmental. If you have feedback for someone, be reserved and sensitive when you present it.
November 23-December 20
Buckling down and attending to details puts you in a slightly grouchy mood today. But cheer up — life is going to lighten up soon, and you’ll be back to your adventurous ways. Catch up with busy work like cleaning, paying bills or finishing up reports for your boss. That way, you’ll have a clear desk at the end of the day and a clear agenda when things get exciting once again.
December 21-January 19
You don’t overspend on frivolous items and definitely not today. An inner sense of calm helps you stay in touch with the fact that you already have everything you need, and it’s more important now to work than to splurge. Even if you don’t hold a paying job, your contribution is important to your family, so attend to it conscientiously. Working this efficiently is its own reward, Capricorn.
January 20-February 18
A skeptical mood descends. Suddenly, your bright vision of the future seems impossible, impractical or out of reach. But maybe this is a good wake-up call. It’s important for your ideas and plans to be not just inventive, but actually feasible. If you’ve overlooked some details, this is your chance to go back to the drawing board and keep refining things until you have a more workable plan.
February 19-March 20
You’re extra sensitive to criticism today, and unfortunately, everyone else seems to have discovered their inner critic. Perhaps you can choose to view their comments as simple feedback instead of harsh judgments. That way, you won’t have to take it all so personally, and you’ll be able to learn from the useful bits. Maybe your work really does need a little more time and attention before it’s perfect.
