Winter’s Last Breath

Why do zebras have stripes? New research into the question suggests that among other benefits, black-and-white striped fur is a deterrent to bloodsucking, disease-carrying horseflies. On winter’s last day, you may marvel at the complexities of your own evolution and pat yourself on the back for all of the problems that adaptation has solved.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Letters and emails require thought; conversations are where the real deals happen. You never know what the other person is going to say. That’s why conversation is the art that separates the amateurs from the pros.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll get dressed up appropriately and show up where expected with an attitude of service. This simple effort may seem to take more out of you now, but it will give you much more than it takes.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you’re to win the game you’re playing, you need a well-tested strategy. Talk it over with a friend or teammate. You’ve already played a few moves, but now is a good time to pause and reconnoiter.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). People will like hearing your compliments only if they desire them first. So don’t give them too early. If you hold back, it will mean more when you finally gush a bit.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is safety in agreement, acceptance and doing what you’ve been doing. If only there were fun there, too. But since there’s not, seek danger. Follow your curiosity to the unpopular and unknown choice.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Now that your guiding planet, Mercury, is flying direct again, you’ll find that a certain someone can be more readily contacted and is also much easier to understand and connect with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you were able to meet one of your heroes, what would you say to that person? The future holds such a meeting, and you’ll get something valuable out of any time you spend preparing for it now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The very thing your ancestors had to fight and die for is now a part of your daily life that you often take for granted. Not today. You will be fully aware and appreciative of their sacrifices.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Understanding where others are coming from will require special attention and a few adjustments. But once everyone is on the same page, moving forward will be easy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The attention lavished on you may not be a direct result of something you did today. Rather, your past efforts have accumulated, and you’re now enjoying the fruits of your labor.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll surprise them again. They really should be onto you by now. Don’t they know that you have already been many people and lived many lifetimes between zero and your current age?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You come across as so amazingly competent now that the one in charge can’t help but give you a new assignment. With any luck, it’s something you can accomplish in a few hours.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 19). Your strong sense of direction will take you to foreign places. Because of all you learn there, you will be a different person by your next birthday. The rule you break in April will liberate you. In May, someone will invest in you. June sees you punching a different clock. Also, it will seem that someone’s heart beats just for you. Leo and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 33, 35 and 13.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My 8-year-old daughter has been brought up on princesses and fairy tales just like I was, and I’m starting to believe it’s an unfair model. No matter how it’s dressed up or twisted, the princess story always seems to revolve around the prince. She’s a Pisces, by the way, and I’m an Aquarius. What should I teach her about what it means to be a woman?”

As the sign of tomorrow, Aquarius people are uniquely wired to concern themselves with the future ramifications of actions. Aquarius people are known to be forward thinking, and they feel it is their responsibility to live in a way that creates an improved next world. Your mindful example already teaches your impressionable young Pisces more than you might guess about what it means to be a woman.

If you’re asking whether or not you should let her watch princess movies (many of which have come a long way since the fairy tales of yesteryear, by the way, as evidenced by not one but two strong Snow White heroines last year), my suggestion is to keep the dialogue open. Your Pisces is a wise soul with an understanding beyond her years.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Bruce Willis is among the top movie actors in terms of box office receipts, having starred in films that have collectively earned in the billions, and the hits keep coming. The Valentine’s Day release of “A Good Day to Die Hard” will be followed by “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and more this year. Willis is a Pisces with a well-rounded chart that includes significant planets in all four elements.
