“The Day of Zest”
Strengths: Vibrant, alive, emotionally complex.
Weaknesses: Overenthusiastic, excessive, thoughtless.
Meditation: The object of one’s enthusiasm is at least as important as the enthusiasm itself.
Advice: Cultivate your contemplative side and confront the important questions of your existence. Don’t get carried away with thrills and sensation. That which makes you feel alive must adapt to the aging process.
Health: Those born on February 28 may not have a great awareness of their body and how it works. An objective medical authority with whom they may have regular checkups and health discussions is highly beneficial. February 28 people must be particularly careful of chronic conditions affecting their lymphatics, venous return and blood pooling in their lower extremities with advanced age. A regular exercise schedule involving swimming, jogging and/or yoga is a good combination of thoughtful body work which suits them. Those born on this day usually like both to cook and eat, so they do not need much encouragement in this respect.
Numbers and planets: Those born on the twenty-eighth of the month are ruled by the number one, and by the Sun. Those ruled by the number one generally like to be first in what they do; they are typically individual, highly opinionated and eager to rise to the top. The Sun symbolizes strong creative energy and fire, which is best kept flowing steadily rather than allowed to sporadically flare out of control. The combination of the Sun and Neptune can make February 28 people overly romantic and sensationalistic.

“Those born on February 28 have a tremendous zest for life, which they communicate to everyone who meets them. These positive, energetic individuals are able to brighten up most occasions with their vibrant personality. Yet, on the other hand, they have a propensity for heading off in entirely the wrong direction, full steam ahead. To make them aware of this is almost impossible when they are caught up in their own enthusiasm. They can be at once assured and positive, dynamic, effective or destructive, depending on the circumstances. Obviously, those born on this day would do well to sit down and contemplate their direction in life, get to know themselves better, and be more deliberate and purposeful in their actions.
Because their energies tend to be diffused and dispersed, and since they can so easily get carried away with new endeavors, February 28 people may adopt an unrealistic attitude toward the world which causes those near and dear to them a great deal of worry. Part of the problem is that some February 28 people may like having others worry about them, and may even engage in dangerous or uncertain activities precisely to get that attention.
For those born on this day, it is the actual excitement of events, the sensations that arise both in themselves and in others that keep them feeling vital and alive. However, they must learn to be highly discriminating in their choice of endeavors and involvements, taking on challenges that are not only risky but also worthwhile and rewarding, not just in the short term but over a lifetime.
Because they choose to live in such a vital and uncompromising way, February 28 people are likely to experience far more of life than the average person. Most born on this day wouldn’t have it any other way. On the other hand, uninhibited enthusiasm can lead to carelessness or thoughtlessness, which stands in the way of their serious development. Also, so they mature, February 28 people may find that the negative after-effects of their activities begin to outweigh the fun or stimulation.
Those born on this day need to imbue their zest for life with understanding. Through both intensely positive and negative encounters, they may eventually come to develop a personal philosophy and deepen their spiritual understanding for life. The question is at what point experience will at last translate into wisdom. For some born on this day, such an evolution takes place quite late in life, for others not at all. Indeed, it is incumbent on February 28 people to at some point stand removed from life’s passing show and observe themselves and others living.”
