ARIES (March 21-April 19): Most salamanders reproduce by laying eggs, but the alpine salamander doesn't. Females of that species give birth to live young after long pregnancies that may last three years. What does this have to do with you? Well, I expect you to experience a metaphorical pregnancy in the coming months. Even if you're male, you will be gestating a project, creation or inspiration. And it's important that you don't let your incubation period drag on and on and on, as the alpine salamanders do. I suggest you give birth no later than July.
