Welcome to the Birthday Club’s third post of birthday shout-outs! They’re revamped, glitzed, and better than ever! As you may know, once a month will be a forum announcement to celebrate the birthdays of our favorite Eden Staff, reviewers, and contributors! (And if you have yet to submit your own birthday, PM or email me now!) And this month I added more details and information since it was so popular. I hope you enjoy!
To make celebrating with our fellow Eden contributors more interesting and special, every month has its own characteristics and history, so I’ll be sharing a little of that each time. It’s not going to be extensive information because that would take up entirely too much space and leave me with nothing to do next year. But it does add a little spice to every month of the year and, hey, you might learn a little something too!
One last thing! I announced this a few months ago but I wanted to make sure everyone hears this wonderful news! Thanks to your involvement and the amazing generosity of the EdenFantasys Staff, every contributor who participates in the birthday club will receive a $25 gift card for their birthday (sent out on a weekly basis)!
So not only is March the start of spring (in the Northern Hemisphere, at least) but there are 9 contributor birthdays to celebrate!
Happy Birthday, all March babies!!!

Zodiac Sign (Feb. 19th – March 20th) – Pisces
Under the ruling planet of Neptune (but traditionally under Jupiter), this is a mutable water sign symbolized by two fish, generally swimming around or opposite of one another. You’re imaginative, sensitive, and gentle in nature but also a bit of an escapist and fairly secretive. You’re more likely to patiently wait for problems to sort themselves out rather than take the initiative to fix them yourself. Also, some of your biggest pet peeves are being overly criticized or being subjected to dealing with know-it-alls. But on a more positive side, you tend to be artistically creative or inspired and desire deep emotional connection with your friends and partners. And because of that, you tend to give a lot more than you take.
Your main colors are white, mauve, and red. Your physical body part that corresponds to your sign (yes, the zodiac has body parts too) is the feet. And since this is the month of the start of spring, I find it appropriate to mention that your flowers are the poppy, water lily, pink, and thyme. Some famous Pisces include Dr. Seuss of children’s books fame, Jon Bon Jovi, Albert Einstein, and Czar Alexander III.
If you’re at the tail end of the month and don’t fall under this sign, no frets! We can’t do repeats for every month so your sign will be next month with March. But also keep in mind, for anyone who has even an inkling of interest in astrology, that the closer you are to another sign in birthday, the more characteristics you share with them.
