IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Grace Gummer (1986) shares your birthday. You are practical, gracious, persevering and patient. You love the arts, especially music. You definitely enjoy the finer things in life. This year will be slower paced. You will also have a stronger focus on partnerships and your closest relationships. Take time to discover the relationships that benefit you.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Mercury will be retrograde for the next month, bringing you transportation delays and mixed-up communications with others. Delivery service will be spotty or confused. Very likely, old friends will be back in your life. Cope as best you can.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Because Mercury will be retrograde for the next month, you can expect delays in financial matters. Checks in the mail will be late. Financial deals might be delayed or suffer from errors and confused communications. However, old business will easily be finished.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Holy moly! Your ruler Mercury will be retrograde for the next month! Expect confused communications along with delays and canceled appointments. You might lose items or forget to bring something — all small (but frustrating) details. Courage!
Cancer (June 21-July 22): For the next month, Mercury will be retrograde in “hidden” part of your chart. This means that even though you might suffer from goofy mistakes and silly delays, you will actually be able to do excellent research into the past. Bonus!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Old friends will be popping up in your life in the next 4 to 6 weeks. (This might already be occurring.) It’s good to have history with others. Plus, it’s fun to talk about the bad old days and trade lies. Enjoy reconnecting.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Mercury will be retrograde for the next month and this will take place at the top of your chart, which means you might hear from parents with whom you have not been in touch. You will also run into bosses from your past and authority figures, including teachers. (Look sharp!)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the next 4 to 6 weeks, you might have travel delays as well as cancellations and problems connected with all aspects of travel. Likewise, delays and confusion related to medicine and legal matters might occur. But the good news is that you can easily study and research the past. Yay!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Mercury will be retrograde for the next month, which brings silly mistakes and delays. However, this “retrograde” will facilitate any endeavor or work that involves digging into the past and finishing old business. You will get a lot of red-tape stuff done! (Taxes, debt, shared property.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): For the next six weeks, you will encounter ex-partners and old friends from your past. Very likely, for some of you, this is already happening. Depending on how things were in the past, this could be good news — or not. (Look great because living well is the best revenge.)
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The next six weeks might be frustrating for you because Mercury retrograde will take its toll on your work or with your job. Expect canceled appointments, mixed-up communications, delays and broken equipment. However, the good news is that this same influence will help you to finish old business. Go figure.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Old flames from the past are likely to reappear in some way in your world once again. (“Boris!” “Natasha!”) This could be exciting or it could be harrowing depending on how the relationship ended. In the next month, old business with your kids might also be back on the table.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Family reunions and contact with family members you have not seen or heard from for a while might take place in the next 4 to 6 weeks. During this same window of time, it will be easy for you to finish old family business, including home repairs. Use this!
