Coney Island Event with Paranormal Expert Mark Sceurman

Mark Sceurman has been investigating the weird and unusual in his home state of New Jersey for over 30 years, compiling over 56 volumes of travels through haunted homes, abandoned factories and underground tunnels entitled Weird NJ. Not only traveling in the paranormal realm, his search to seek out the truth between local legends, mysterious areas and the darker side of history has been an ongoing theme.

Sceurman has also traveled across the United States to seek out similar legends and paranormal hot spots, co-producing 40 books with Mark Moran proving that each state has its own share of strangeness to be told.

He claims his next door neighbor has knowledge of aliens and time travel but has told him he cannot divulge any information. His neighbor only wears dark glasses and white shirts. Sceurman was once visited at home by the Men In Black, asking if his neighbor ever talked about his job. He received a letter in the mail with samples of dirt claiming to be from Mars, and another letter from someone who wants to show him a portal to the Inner Earth, which happens to be in New Jersey.

He claims the encounters with people that he comes in contact with are sometimes more frightening than any haunted house. He has never had a close encounter but would like to.

Mark Moran is lifelong resident of New Jersey, and graduate of Parson's School of Design in the NYC. As co-publisher, writer and photographer of Weird NJ Magazine, Mark has spent the last 28 years wandering the back roads, back alleys and backwoods of the Garden State and beyond, seeking out mysteries and trying to find explanations for the unexplainable.

Mark is the co-creator of the bestselling Weird NJ and Weird U.S. series of books published by Barnes & Noble. He has co-authored more than 40 books, 60 magazines, and was the co-host of the Weird U.S. television show, which aired on the History Channel.

In addition to his ongoing role as commentator on Travel Channel’s Paranormal Caught on Camera, Mark has made frequent TV appearances on other shows, like; The Holzer Files and Trending Fear.

These days Mark lives a seemingly normal life in a quiet Jersey suburb. Though his mild-mannered neighbors would never suspect it, each morning as he jumps into his Jeep to go to work, Mark begins a brand-new adventure into the unknown, seldom explored and all but forgotten side of American culture.

Madam Lichtenstein is the author of the best selling astrology book “HerScopes ” now in its 10th printing and available as an eBook.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
The world becomes a huge cosmic egg for you, Aries, full of potential and opportunity. But where do you start? What can you effectively hold to better manage your future success? The possibilities become too enormous. But make a decision and choose. Whatever happens will either be a reward or a learning experience. Both are valuable.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Taureans Should take a minute to assess their current set of friendships. Are these connections beneficial, fertile and mutually happy? Some are and some are not. But take your time before you decide which ones require too much effort to continue. Everything seems too big to handle now. In a few weeks these issues shrink to a happier size.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Too many career demands may cause extra stress and a questioning of your current professional path. Where can you go from here, Gemini? The temptation is to decide quickly to radically shift direction ... but don’t. Be deliberate in your strategies. Give things time to rebalance and slow down. Life can look very different in a few weeks.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Life suddenly becomes exciting. The world opens up in front of you and the opportunities for travel and a completely new perspective on life is endless and vast. Maybe too vast for your comfort, Cancer. While you feel compelled to jump into the swirling cosmos, wait for the best time and the right opportunity for you personally.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
If the past year has been quiet for your love life, Leo, expect a lot more action now. Life perks up. You feel more confident and inquisitive. Don’t be surprised if many admirers vie for your attention. It may be almost too much of a good thing! Take it slow. Be selective and enter into any love relationship with care and deliberation. It should last.

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Expect movement and change in a particular relationship, Virgo. While some partnerships might have fallen into a hum drum routine, there is now an opportunity to jazz things up. But before you begin to rock and roll, make sure that you can control the movement and direction to your liking. You don’t want things to get out of control. Or do you?

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Work assignments can become almost unmanageable now, Libra. There are so many interesting and seemingly important projects, it might be hard for you to decide what you should complete right away and which you can defer or delegate. Take your time deciding, even if you feel the need to act immediately. Strategic decision making pays off.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Have fun, Scorpio, but be sure that the fun you choose is more play than work. Planning a big party, for example, is a huge task if you do it on your own. It may also require a lot more work to recruit helpers. Enjoy life in little chewable bites. You find that the big and impressive can wait until you have exhausted many of the small and intimate.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Family projects, events and issues take up more of your time now, Sagittarius. As much as you feel that you can manage everything that is going on around you, there may be times when you feel overwhelmed by all of the frenzy. Learn to take breaks and sit back and slowly enjoy everything and everyone around you. Life is too short.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Anything you say, no matter how quietly or measured, could take on mammoth proportions. You have great ideas and strategic insights that are very valuable to others. Capricorns have the power of the word now but should be careful to use this power sparingly and carefully. You can move mountains but be careful as to where they will land!

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Money issues continue to be a big part of your thought process, Aquarius. It comes and goes but now it moves with greater velocity and less personal control. Before finances spin off and out, take time to sit back and think carefully of what you want and what you need. Then you can slowly put your plans in place for your future growth and security.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Whatever personal project you have in mind, it can take off like a rocket, Pisces. People naturally gravitate to you as you draw an adoring crowd wherever you go. Think practically before you commit to a particular direction, a set of advisors and influencers. Slow and steady gets you where you want to go. Tomorrow will be yours to control. Heh. Heh.

Mercury Retrograde May 29 - June 22, 2021

Wonderful astrologer Felissa Rose has just sent me her overview of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde. I am sharing it with you now. Thank you, Felissa!

Mercury Retrograde May 29-June 22, 2021

Every year the planet  Mercury goes retrograde three times.   This year the first one was from late January into February and the coming one begins on May 29th at 6:35 pm EDT ending on June 22nd at 6:01 pm.   In 2021 the last time Mercury will be retrograde is from September 27th until October 18th.   During the coming  Mercury retrograde it will be transiting Gemini, the sign that Mercury rules.  The retrograde begins when Mercury is at 24 degrees 41 minutes of Gemini and ends on June 22 with Mercury at 16 degrees and 9 minutes of the same sign.   The planets move from east to west  but while  retrograde they appears to be going backwards.   That’s due to the earth’s position in relationship to Mercury.  These occurrences have an influence on human behavior and sometimes quite a strong one.  Although Mercury turns direct on June 22 and things begin to become more coherent,  there’s even more clarity as it moves to  the exact degree  it went retrograde at 24 degrees 41 minutes , on July 7th.

During the time Mercury is retrograde its influence becomes more internalized.   People become more introspective and like those who were born under Mercury retrograde there’s more of a tendency to think before speaking.  Something that’s generally good to do but which there isn’t always the opportunity to so.   Many successful authors were born while Mercury was retrograde and even if you weren’t, it’s a good time to go over, reflect on and write down your ideas and opinions before sharing them with others.

Those familiar with things that have  happened  while this planet is retrograde are aware of the delays, mistakes and mishaps that more frequently occur at these times.   Give yourself more time to do what you need to and try not to act in a rushed manner for everyone else is under the influence of Mercury  retrograde  and as a result slower to pick up and perceive information and not as open to initiating projects.  If possible, it’s best  not to  purchase new mechanical or technological equipment.  More often during this retrograde period things are more apt to break down and have a need to be replaced.  If you have to make a sudden and unexpected purchase of equipment or technology,  get a warranty where it can be easily replaced or repaired.   More likely there’s apt to be delays getting in touch with either tech support or the sales department  whomever you need to contact.  Mercury also rules paperwork so go over contacts and agreements and if possible, put off signing and finalizing them until Mercury is no longer retrograde.

Non crucial or emergency medical and dental appointments should be avoided.  If you want clear test results which don’t have to be repeated, put it off until Mercury has gone direct.   Both Mercury and Gemini, the sign it’s moving through,  are about information, which particularly needs to be clear when it comes to one’s health.   Gemini is the sign of breathing and the lungs and allergies should be more than apparent during this period.

Mercury retrogrades are periods  to take to take it easy as well as spend more time on inner and personal development.  One’s world seems to slow down a bit and though it’s important to deal with whatever is needed,  it’s a good time to reflect on where you are now and where you want to be.  The world might seem more complicated and confused but by reflecting and looking inward about yourself and the things you’ve done and learned, there can be more clarity and understanding of what and why we’re here.   For there are times one doesn’t value the moment until it becomes a memory.


Horoscope for the Week of May 24, 2021 - Mercury and Saturn Retrograde

Both Mercury in Gemini and Saturn in Aquarius retrograde this week. Expect some crossed wires that hamper communication and possibly cloud our better judgment. Handle every problem that comes your way slowly and carefully.

Madam Lichtenstein is the author of the best selling astrology book “HerScopes ” now in its 10th printing and available as an eBook.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Anything you say could be misinterpreted now, Aries, and cause some misunderstandings with friends. So if you have a certain opinion or idea, let it float around in your mind for the time being instead of sharing it. Who knows? A very careful consideration and a waiting period may be the way to sharpen your eventual message.

TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Your value system could be in for a deep re-evaluation now, Taurus. But your shifting preferences could shift again in a few weeks. So before you embark on a certain direction, sit back and think about it a little longer. What looks like a sure fire way to make money may not be the best way. All that glitters is not gold. And in this case, it could be styrofoam.

GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
First impressions can be lasting impressions, Gemini. So if you find yourself in the center of a crowd, take the responsibility of all this attention seriously. Your voice carries a global impact which can lead you to places you might prefer not to go at this time. So be a bit of a wallflower, if you can. Plan your eventual entrance with care so you wow them later.

CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
If you are holding some wild sexy secrets, be prepared to accidentally spill them in what might be an inappropriate time. Uh oh, Cancer. But this is not a malicious act and hopefully others are quick to forgive. But to spare you these uncomfortable moments, I suggest that you refrain from gossip and idle chit chat ... at least temporarily.

LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Plans with friends may go astray. They forget or you forget or all of you wind up in various different places looking for each other. So expect invitations to get lost and phone calls missed, Leo. Romance too, may hit an unanticipated snag because of miscommunication. Lessons learned. It will all be a part of the mysterious cosmic fun eventually...

VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Virgos may be working doubly hard over the next few weeks as certain tasks require re-dos. You are usually vary careful and efficient but the fates seem to mix up the directions, instructions and even the supplies. Why ask why? Try to maintain your calmness and composure and plow ahead. These mix-ups may even prove to be educational. We hope.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
If you are planning a party, Libra, make sure that everyone knows all of the details ... and remind them a few times. Invitations to fun events may have a way of going astray. In fact any excursion local or otherwise can wind up as a wild goose chase. So while travel in general seems to go a little off track, remember that it can become a great adventure!

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Honesty is the best policy when it comes to close relationships, Scorpio. But now it might be good to add a dollop of sugar and diplomacy since your message may get muddled or mis-communicated. Something nice and frothy can be a happy memory. While there will be time in the near future to tell it like it is, for now tell it like it can be.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Interactions with neighbors could go well, hit a snag or be confused, depending on how carefully you craft your message. Sagittarians often talk without thinking. But now, it is best to first think very carefully and then, if things can wait, say nothing. You may also find that local events can get mixed up. Maybe it’s time for a vacation?

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns learn a few financial lessons now. One is that you always carefully read the fine print before you invest or buy. The other is that you need to do more research from different sources and listen to all reputable advice before you act. You work too hard for your money to waste it on speculation. The cosmos is asking you to pay greater attention.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians think of all sorts of creative activities and want to find a group to join in. That is great. But sometimes your plans are not described in a way that others can envision. So anything that sparks your imagination should be presented in concrete and understandable bits of clear description. Hard to do, I know, but I also know you can do it.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Family issues need to be cleared but there is so much miscommunication and static that sometimes your opinions get lost in the clouds. The best advice for Pisces at this time is to let more things pass and maintain a mellow and somewhat distant presence. Watch, listen and wait for the right time to act. It will come soon but not right now.
