Diva Week: Bdays For Mariah, Chaka, Diana

A law was made a distant moon ago: all African-American divas must be born in late March. Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan, Diana Ross, and Aretha Franklin are among those with birthdays this week. (Also Lady Gaga.) These dynamic women are all Aries, the first and fieriest sign of the zodiac, who like to take the plunge. Imagine them as the first creatures that emerged from the proto-blaze as the earth exploded into existence. Or, if you would prefer a firmer science, imagine what qualities you can borrow from these women as you clean house, and hit the reset button on your New Year’s resolutions. Ask yourself: what kind of person do you want to be in the coming year? And does any of it involve big hair?
