TAURUS (April 21 – May 21)
Pounce On It. Okay, Bull felines, scary stuff (a new pet or person) may spook you early this month. Better to face your fear factor than to flee–just do it. The fact is, you can split but then you'll have other ghosts to deal with. By the Full Moon on May 26 you won't be a scaredy cat anymore. Plus, you'll have a new sense of cat confidence and that will help you to catch a mouse–real or not. Purr-fect days: 12, 14

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21)
Nuzzle Up. The teaming of Venus and Mars this month makes you want to give extra sandpaper tongue kisses to your loved ones–human or animal. So put your loving cat self to work and you'll stay calm and content–like cats often are. By the New Moon on May 12 companionship will be in the cat bag. Purr-fect days: 13, 14

CANCER(June 22 – July 23)
Balance Yourself. You really don't need anyone to tell you that things in your cat world are unbalanced. But don't let human stress overload your cat cool. Recharge with power catnaps and cat massage. Yes, your cat people will do it because it will relax both of you. And they know that you know that nurturing is a big deal to insecure Crab Cats. Purr-fect days: 15, 16

LEO (July 24 – August 23)
Be Playful. Ah, Leo pussycats, this is your month to get plenty of ego-boosting attention and affection. Fun-loving kids can make your days fun and full of stimulation. That's right, children can give you plenty of Lion strokes. Warning: Don't have a hissy fit because of too much petting. Overall, if you do that you'll spoil your time. Purr-fect days: 17, 18

VIRGO (August 24 – September 23)
Back Off. Yes, we know how persnickety Virgo felines can be–and this isn't the month to be fussy, sorry. Around the Full Moon on May 26 it's best to go do your cat thing (such as licking your paws and face) without lofty expectations and leave your very busy humans alone. It will be for your own peace of mind. Purr-fect days: 12, 21

LIBRA (September 24 – October 23)
Paws Up. Your charming cat-attitude pays off at home–the place where lovable Libran felines are very content. Enjoy special people, special pampering. Sweet words (such as "I love you") and new places (perhaps a new kitty sill or cat chum is in the works) may be in the stars. Keep up the Good Kitty routine Lib, and this month will be one to cherish. Purr-fect days: 22, 23

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 22)
Dump the Attitude. You'll be hit with an unexpected action from a human or pet pal. (Could you-know-who be flying the coop?) For best results, don't hiss or spit–just let go of the bad energy. Then after mid-month get heady and let your spirit be our guide oh spiritual one. Purr-fect days: 1, 25

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 – December 21)
Be Catty. Your feelings count big-time this month, Sag. So tend to your body from head to tail (emotional-wise), which isn't too hard for purring machines like you. Once you speak your mind–and tell it like it is–you'll feel like a new-and-improved puss. Hey, it's all about communication and you'll get your meows in. Purr-fect days: 26, 27

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 20)
Get Tough. Oops, Goat! Early this month your usual practical manner flees and you pull a foolish cat stunt (e.g., chase the dog, fall out of a tree) and pay the price. Well, dust yourself off and vow to be a grounded cat for the rest of the year. P.S. Mr. or Ms. dog will forgive you no matter how scared he or she was. (Dogs provide unconditional love–even to obnoxious cats). Purr-fect days: 28, 29

AQUARIUS(January 21 – February 19)
Bat The Mouse. Your personal woes are all squared away this month, and that leaves time for batting the toy mouse (or a real one!) and catching up on your cat video chock full of stimulating wildlife to die for. Enjoy, oh cerebral one. This is the time of year to feed your Aquarian craving of rodents. Purr-fect days: 3, 4

PISCES (February 20 – March 20)
Be Independent. While you're a cat and a Pisces, being self-reliant can happen for you. You must lose that needy Fish cat thing you've got going on and go get a life. The worst case scenario: Heated arguments at home will bug you but just play dumb and get into whatever it is that makes you happy. Sound like a good cat plan? Purr-fect days: 5, 6

ARIES (March 21 – April 20)
Go Do It. While the teaming of Mercury, Venus, Mars and other planets tweak your cat mind, you still have got that Ram urge to go do it in the great outdoors. It's time to watch the birds, check out the flowers, play with dog friends and get back to the basics. It will make you feel more like a wild cat. Purr-fect days: 8, 9
