Whats your sign? And what does it indicate about your home and garden preferences? With a hat-tip to all the fine astrologers who know a lot more about astrology than I do, I bring you my intuitive suggestions just for fun.
Capricorn, an Earth sign
Capricorns are often grounded and really good in business and finance. For you, your home office should receive special focus and attention. Youll probably also want a special section in your kitchen for a computer, so you can check your portfolio while you wait for your morning coffee to brew.

Aquarius, an Air sign
Aquarians are considered to have strong humanitarian interests. Since this likely includes entertaining people to discuss local and global events, youll want a comfortable family room that opens onto a patio garden for indoor/outdoor gatherings.
Pisces, a Water sign
Pisces are generally dreamy and sensitive. You probably like a lot of quiet time, and appreciate the soothing benefits of gardening and being out in nature. Landscaping activities and garden areas for drifting and dreaming will satisfy you and dont forget to add a fish pond.

Aries, a Fire sign
Aries people are often strong, outgoing, and focused. Youll tend to thrive in a home with an open floor plan, so you can stride from end to end with plenty of space to move. Make sure your garage is well-organized and has plenty of space for movement, too.

Cancer, a Water sign
Cancer is the sign of the ultimate homebody. Hearth and home are havens for most all people, but for you, even more so. Youll probably thrive in a home that has a well-designed kitchen, and your patio will be an extension of that an outdoor kitchen equipped to the max.

Leo, a Fire sign
Leo people are often extroverts who love attention and applause. Because you probably enjoy being surrounded by loving friends and admiring neighbors, youll want to landscape your home for the wow! factor. And your living and dining areas will likely be large and dramatic so you can entertain with flair.

Virgo, an Earth sign
Virgo people tend to be detail-oriented and prize perfectionism (no matter that its an impossible goal). You will likely value organized closets, a lot of extra storage space in kitchen, garage, and laundry room. Neatness and cleanliness help you feel calm, so well-designed storage spaces will serve you well.
Libra, an Air sign
Libra is the sign of balance and harmony. Many Libra people appreciate order and symmetry. Remodeling your front porch with columns will please your eye and make a gracious entry to your home. A large entry hall with simple, artistic furnishings will please you greatly.
Scorpio, a Water sign
Scorpio is the sexiest sign of the zodiac. Scorpio is also known for its love of mystery. For you, a wonderful bedroom and bathroom suite is perhaps the most valuable place you could lavish your remodeling attentions. Build in all the extras so you can enjoy all the pleasures of your private space.
Sagittarius, a Fire sign
Sagittarius people are known as adventuresome types with lively, crackling personalities. Youll probably want at least one major fireplace in your home, and more is better. Youll also want one outside. Travel gear will be plentiful for you, so add shelving and cabinets in your garage and closets to store it all.
