ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Relationships can soon heat up and become something much deeper and more powerful, if that is what you want. Good! You might have been sitting on the fence, Aries, waiting to decide what and who you really want. Decision made. It is time to share your feelings and see if and how they are reciprocated. You may be happily surprised at the answer.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Even minor efforts will help you cement your commitment to a certain cause or person, Taurus. The important thing to note here is that you need to be present and active in order to be successful. This is something that you cannot delegate or put off. Decisions should be made once you get a clear picture of the landscape. Then go forth and meaningfully connect.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Your life may have been filled with more fun than work recently but there comes a point where frivolity must have some larger purpose. That time in now, Gemini. Put what you have enjoyed and learned to good practical use over the next few weeks. You come up with creative solutions to long standing obstacles as well as spread the joy.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Are family members becoming more involved and helpful in your life? It is possible now, Cancer. Months of cultivating connections with them pay off and you can rest comfortably knowing that if you need them they will be there. Reciprocality is key, however. Your helpfulness and love will work wonders as a balm to fraying relationships.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos roar their approval of anything and everything now. You are feeling grrrreat and are happy to let others know. But just a roar or three will not necessarily get you what you want and where you want to go. Turn up all of your charisma and charm when you share your views. And be sure to say pretty please with sugar on top....

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Money is honey, Virgo. Which is why this week you may see a bit of relief on your financial front. This has been a tight and uncertain time for you and many others. Get creative in how you amass and frugal once you do amass. Do your research and ask the right advisors if you can. Saving for a rainy day is advisable, even if it seems like it is raining all the time now.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Get yourself into the epicenter of all of the action form a safe distance. You are a supernova in a galaxy full of stars, Libra. Not only do you shine brightly, you also attract other celestial beings into your orbit. You are diplomatic and charming. Tell the crowds what you think. Share your dreams, desires and hopes. They might all just come true.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
If your communication has been fuzzy and unpredictable recently, you may now find great moments of clarity, Scorpio. The universe opens and sends you its secrets. Use what you glean to help form the future of your life path. Find time to pull back and de-stress, clear your mind and refresh your perspective. You are preparing for a big move.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Outreach to friends and large groups will prove to be very satisfying and successful now, Sagittarius. Your views are not only accepted and understood but implemented. Find ways to connect to others in a safe manner and you may find yourself heading up some fairly important groups. Today the local book club. Tomorrow the world.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
As much as you have been striving for success on your own terms, you have recently found that some careful accommodations and pivots can work well for you. This is not a capitulation to the group think, Capricorn. It is practical move to solidify your strength and power. Once that is achieved to your satisfaction you can do what you have always wanted to do.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians with itchy feet to travel may have to find more creative ways to safely explore the world. But that doesn’t mean being stuck and static, Aquarius. You will be able to find great ways to refresh your world perspective and seek other interesting people globally by seeing things from a new perspective. Sometimes it just starts with an email.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Are you feeling a bit feisty now, Pisces? If so this is the time to safely express your desires and needs to those close to you. All of this distancing has left some of us with a burning need for deeper connection, affirmation and love. It can be a boost on many important levels. Who knows what can happen when two minds act as one? It is powerful.

Get Yourself a Ghost

GhostmakersLooking to buy a ghost? check out Atlas Obscura's coverage of York, England's Ghostmakers:

 

Messrs Bloodworth, and McArthur, members of the Sorrowful Guild of Master Ghostmakers, opened this shop on York’s famous Shambles street in 2019, with the intention of selling original York Ghosts.

With the city considered one of the most haunted in the world (occasionally nicknamed The City of One Thousand Ghosts), it would make sense that many souvenirs contain phantasmagorical features. The York Ghost designs favor the more playful “bedsheet with two holes” depictions of ghosts. This tongue in cheek seriousness permeates not only the small ghost sculptures, but the entire store. 

The building currently occupied by the York Ghost Merchants dates to 1780, with the ground floor acting as the sales space. Here, around 1,000 ghosts can be found at one time, surrounded by ghostly images hidden in the furniture and plasterwork. There are other fun features around the shop such as a miniature train that is sometimes used to deliver ghosts to their new living companions. The upper floors are where the workshops used to create these spectral beings are located.

The ghosts are small sculptures made of a material considered a trade secret by Bloodworth and McArthur. The material can feature several colors and most of the ghosts sculptures contain psychedelic patterns. There are also special edition creations that have become collector’s items. All York Ghosts feature the makers’ mark of two torches alit, crossed and upside down, a throwback to Victorian symbolism.

Know Before You Go

Per their official website, opening times are Monday — Saturday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m.- 4 p.m.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Sexy Aries can turn up their animal magnetism now and attract anyone they set their minds to attract. The cosmic energies turn up the heat and have you focused on deeply personal emotions and actions. Connect, but do so from a safe distance. There are many ways to express your love and show how strongly you feel about someone. Get creative.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Take a step back and see how certain relationships are playing out during the pandemic. You may find that those who you once considered more distant move up in closeness. Take stock, Taurus, and apply your efforts and attention to those who give you greater gratification, love and protection. It will cary over once the pandemic is over too.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Stay safe and healthy, Gemini. This is a great time to take stock of your health, your diet, your exercise and the variety of ways for you to successfully de-stress and feel fit. All of these efforts will give you the extra strength you need to maximize your energies to get all types of small and big projects done. Get ready to cross things off your to-do list.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
It is important for you to find fun things to do but even fun will have to have its serious applications now, Cancer. Whatever you decide to do artistically needs to have a successful conclusion for you to feel that it was time well spent. So explore your creative side with a special purpose now. Your creations will be long lasting and maybe even valuable.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Family plays a bigger role in your life now, Leo. That is because relatives see you as the perfect take-charge person to help them get things done. I think you are happy to play that role. Not only because it is the kind thing to do but also because it will pay off for you in some way in the future. So be generous with your time and attention. Then anticipate the ka-ching.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos are often very clear and concise in their communication. Now you are not only all of that but also strategic and motivating. Get your thoughts and opinions out any way you can from a safe distance. Your ability to sway the crowds gets you acclaim, attention and maybe even a bit of power. So then what will you do with all of that good stuff? Heh. Heh....

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
It is possible that your personal finances have been stretched during the pandemic. If that has been the case, you may benefit from a reassessment of your options now. Are there different actions that you can now take to get yourself on a different fiscal path? Are there un-mined talents that you can tap into that may bring in a few extra dollars? Possibly so, Libra.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
You can not only command everyone’s full attention, you can also wow the crowd and take them where you want to go. The big question now is, Scorpio, do you have a clear direction of where you want to go. The next couple of weeks can be best used to put your plans into action and get the right help that you need to make dreams a reality. Go, go, go!

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Not only are you a bit more intuitive now, Sagittarius, you may find that your gut feelings can be acted upon in a beneficial and strategic way. Focus on what your soul is telling you and proceed cautiously and safely. There will be help along the way. We may not be able to predict where this road will lead but I believe that it will lead you in the right direction.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Gather your friends together or join some new groups or associations in a safe manner, Capricorn. The goal is to enable others to help you, fortify your spirits and give you a helping hand. Good things happen when you do some out reach and connect, whether virtually or socially distanced. There is strength in numbers. So make every friend count.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
No matter where your career takes you, you will feel more in control of its path now. Aquarians often have the urge to help heal the world ... and we can sure use that now! Take a moment to review your life’s course and see if it is headed in the direction that brings you joy and affirmation. If it needs a tweak, you might be able to do that successfully now.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Pisces who may be feeling too hemmed in and constrained can begin to find ways to expand their world safely and spread their wings. Find new outlets to express yourself, learn a few new things and generally expand your outlook. This burst of freedom will not only make you feel more optimistic, it will also enable you to control the direction of your life more effectively.
