IF JUNE 7 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Musician Johnny Clegg (1953) shares your birthday. You’re stylish, entertaining and fun to be with. You are also aware of what is going on around you because you like to have your finger on the pulse of things. You easily express yourself physically as well as verbally. This year you will focus on partnerships and close friendships. It’s important to interact with others because these interactions will benefit you.

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Although you have felt the influence of Mercury retrograde before now, today it technically begins. This means it’s a good time to wrap up old business with siblings, neighbors and relatives. Guard against transportation delays and mechanical breakdowns. Ouch.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This Mercury retrograde will affect your financial scene in some way. Checks in the mail will be late along with delays in payments in other ways. However, this month is a good time for you to wrap up old money issues. Job-related delays are also likely.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today Mercury goes retrograde in Cancer but by June 17, it will slip back into your sign. This is bound to put you in contact with ex-partners and friends from the past. However, it will also create silly miscommunications and goofy errors in your daily existence.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today Mercury goes retrograde in your sign, creating havoc in your daily world this month. You might misplace items, forget things, be at the wrong place for a meeting, and in general, suffer from mistakes and misunderstandings.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Old friends will be back in your life again this month. And even at a mental level, you might find yourself thinking of old friendships and contacts from the past. You might want to get in touch with someone. This is par for the course for Mercury retrograde this month.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Many of you will be in touch with bosses, parents and authority figures from your past in the coming month. This is an excellent time to finish big projects but a poor time to initiate them. You might want to rethink some goals and ponder your life direction and general.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the month ahead, you might suffer from travel delays or be forced to reschedule things because of Mercury retrograde. However, it’s the perfect time to finish a thesis or major paper or any work connected with higher education, medicine, the law, publishing and the media.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Roll up your sleeves and wrap up loose details with inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and insurance matters because this will go swiftly because of Mercury retrograde this month. You can actually use this influence to your advantage!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Ex-partners and spouses will be back in your life again; in fact, for some of you, this has already occurred. Sometimes ex-partners are friends; but frequently, they’re not. Look sharp because living well is the best revenge. (“I’m so happy now.”)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Brace yourself because this particular Mercury retrograde will encourage silly errors, miscommunications, delays and equipment breakdowns at work. They will be small, goofy things but they will be annoying and frustrating. For the whole month! Oy vey.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Old flames will be back in your life again one way or the other, which can rattle your peace of mind. (Especially if you want to give them a piece of your mind!) To use the Mercury retrograde energy in a positive way, wrap up old business related to children and the entertainment world.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stock the fridge because there’s a good chance you will have family members and relatives camped out on your doorstep. This particular Mercury retrograde is the perfect time for a family reunion, but it might attract a deadbeat relative who is out work. Be prepared.
