IF January 21 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Martin Shaw (1945) shares your birthday. You have a colorful personality, and are quite comfortable being a star. In fact, you are often a trendsetter in your group or in society at large. You will face a major decision this year. Save your money in the first half of this year and cut down on overhead expenses because this will help you later in the year. Your integrity and patience will be tested.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Old friends, especially younger, artistic people are back in your life again. Wonderful! Good to have history with others. This might be a chance to catch up on old times or reconnect and create new bonds. Because others can help you now — be open to these possibilities.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Now, and in the next few weeks, you might become involved with authority figures from your past like bosses, teachers or parents with whom you have been out of touch. This is an opportunity to re-establish relationships that will benefit you now and in the future.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Grab every opportunity to travel somewhere, especially someplace you have been before. Perhaps a previous trip somewhere pleasant, now beckons to you once again? Others will reunite with people from other cultures and different countries. Explore places and ideas!
CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is a good time to finish up old business regarding inheritances, insurance matters, taxes, debt and shared property. Because Mercury retrograde will help you wrap up loose ends, do as much as you can.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the Moon is opposite your sign. In addition, Mercury retrograde is taking place opposite your sign, which means friends from the past, especially ex-partners, will be back in your life. Oops.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Now and in the next few weeks, you will find it easy to finish old projects at home in order to make your living space more comfortable and attractive. You might also hear from relatives. In fact, they might be camped on your doorstep.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your daily efficiency will suffer with this particular Mercury retrograde.

An old friend might help you with the chaos and increased activity at home.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your efforts to go forward with financial plans might be stalled in the water at the moment because of Mercury retrograde. However, Mercury retrograde will help you finish up old business. This means you have to switch your focus from new business to old business.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Mercury is now retrograde in your sign, which is bound to bring you back in touch with ex-partners and friends from your past. It can also create maddening frustrations with lost keys, misplaced papers, missed appointments, confused communications and silly errors. (Whaat?)
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Although your general efficiency might suffer now, and in the next few weeks, Mercury retrograde will actually help you to research anything from the past. If you’re looking for answers to old problems — dig deep because you will be successful. Secret love affairs and old flames might reappear.
