ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)

Aries may suddenly find a pot of gold where they least expect it now. Chances are it will enable you to take certain actions that you previously wouldn’t have been able to consider. So if your wallet starts to fill up with extra money and resources, think carefully about how you can make it work for you in the long term and for powerful purposes.

TAURUS (APRIL 21-MAY 21)

You become a powerful force for good for everyone around you, Taurus. That means you hold a special responsibility to bring enlightenment and knowledge to others who need it and expand the range of possibilities for yourself in your life’s quest. Set your compass on forward and see where the adventure leads you. Oh will you be happily surprised!

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

Whatever you expect this week, you will receive the unexpected. And it won’t be a bad thing at all, Gemini! In fact, the cosmos has happy plans for you that can bring love and a bit of lust along the way with someone you know or someone you don’t yet know. Open up your heart to the possibilities and see what your intuition tells you.

CANCER   (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)

Social situations will not only give you a renewed energy, they can provide you with unexpected bonuses. Expand your reach, join new clubs or associations and otherwise expand your sphere of influence. The folks you meet now enable you to form lasting relationships. Cancers are the ones to know. Show them exactly what you know.

LEO   (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)

Long term plans will have a way of expanding and offering you new and profitable opportunities for growth. But that doesn’t mean you should sit back and wait for the delivery, Leo. It means that you can make your own success through hard work and a deep focus. There is no limit to your abilities and potential now. Go, go, go!

VIRGO   (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)

Don’t allow yourself to be bored now, Virgo. There are places to go and people to see and parties to plan and launch. Allow your imagination some room to roam and freedom to experiment. There is so much happening around you that you will miss out on all of the fun if you sit and wait for it. Put out the effort and it will reward you tenfold.

LIBRA   (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)

Your capacity for love will expand and trickle into so many areas of your life that it can leave you floating on good vibes. Let it flow into family affairs, especially with those relatives with whom you might have lost touch or need to support emotionally. You become a happy bedrock of support. Wow, Libra, what will you do with all of this warmth? You will think of something …

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)

Relationships in need of strength, connection and reaffirmation will have it now, Scorpio. Focus on what and who brings you joy and comfort and multiply it with outreach and support. You have a lot of opinions on the matter and can share your thoughts with others in a productive and meaningful way. Allow yourself to connect.

SAGITTARIUS   (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)

Hard and diligent work will have a huge payoff for Sagittarians now. That is because you can find ways to hyper focus on what exactly needs to  be done and, as you do it, lucky shortcuts appear to you. What do you need to finish off? What do you need to accomplish? This is the time to make your best moves so you can relax and enjoy later.

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)

Sparks of creativity can lead to new ideas and personal successes for you now, Capricorn. Allow yourself time to explore your artistic side. There will be times where you feel like you have discovered the secrets of the universe. If so, use your insights to propel you into new and influential circles of contacts. Who knows where it will all lead?

AQUARIUS   (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)

Your home becomes a beehive of activity, Aquarius. That means that anything you need to do to make it more comfortable could be handled expertly now. Does that require more planning than you expect? If so, sit back and allow your imagination to help you plan. You never know what crazy thought can become the genius answer.

PISCES   (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)

Explore your neighborhood for sparks of opportunity, new friendships and even an inspired purpose Pisces. Neighbors and local businesses offer you new, positive connections that make your life happier and more secure. Consider trying a new local spot or joining a local community effort. Who knows where this can all lead for you?

What it Takes to be a Medium in Lily Dale

Ghosts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sarah Durn writes all about Lily Dale for Altas Obscura:

From the outside, this small, rural community in upstate New York looks like many others in the state. Victorian cottages cozy up to one another in various shades of green, white, and yellow. Large red oaks dot sidewalks, stretching their long limbs into a vibrant canopy. But look a bit closer and you’ll start to see the “Medium Open” signs or stumble upon the Healing Temple or the community’s pet cemetery. Welcome to Lily Dale, America’s oldest Spiritualist community.

Lily Dale was founded in 1879 basically as an adult Spiritualism summer camp. People would come, set up tents, and then wait for the dead to arrive. Seances, message services, and classes followed. Back in the late 19th century, Spiritualism was flourishing, with more than a million followers. Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, actress Mae West, even Thomas Edison (maybe) all joined in. The basic tenet of the religion is that “life is continuous—in other words, we never die, we just change states of being. As a science, Spiritualism is committed to proving the continuity of life by communicating with spirits who have passed on,” writes Lily Dale medium Janice Dreshman.

What began as that tented summer commune now is a small hamlet, with about 250 permanent and semipermanent residents, many of whom are registered mediums. For about $80 to $100, you can sit down with a Lily Dale medium as he or she relays messages from family members and friends who’ve passed on, at least until your half-hour is up.

All Lily Dale mediums are members of what’s called the Lily Dale Assembly, made up of members from around the world. And while all members are Spiritualists, not all members are mediums. Some members live and work in Lily Dale. Others don’t. All members can vote on Lily Dale building decisions, community matters, and who is elected to the Assembly’s Board of Directors.

The Board doesn’t allow just anyone to waltz in and start giving readings, though. Lily Dale requires all mediums to go through a rigorous testing process to be registered and allowed to set up shop. Today, there are 36 registered mediums at Lily Dale. Some, such as Gretchen Clark, have grown up in the community. Most, though, have bought homes and moved in. Regardless, all the mediums at Lily Dale had to hone their skills and pass numerous tests before they were allowed to charge visitors for readings.

In the early days of Lily Dale in the late-19th and early-20th centuries, becoming a registered medium “was based totally on competency,” says Elaine Thomas, a registered Lily Dale medium for 37 years. If you could talk to dead people, you were in. To become a medium today though, “there’s a lot of volunteerism,” says Dreshman, who’s been a registered medium since 2005. Many of the programs on offer at Lily Dale are only possible because community members donate their time.

ARIES   (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)

So take your time and consider all of your options, Taurus. Your professional path may shift and the limits of your success will appear to be endless. Conquer and reign!

GEMINI   (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)

If you have been feeling hemmed in, this may be a good time to consider your options. Geminis need to break out of their ruts and experience new things that will enliven their lives. So try a new hobby, travel to a new location or otherwise break from your tradition. Experience something a little out of your comfort zone. You never know…

Whatever sparks your curiosity and creativity, do it now, Libra. Explore ways to bring greater joy and surprise into your life. Your luck improves and your overall zest can be expanded and popularized. There may also be more opportunities for romance. Who knows what can happen when you blend body paint and crepe paper?

SCORPIO   (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)

Home activities take on greater importance this week. Scorpios can find ways to bring family together or otherwise improve their domestic situation. Are you considering a move or a renovation?

CAPRICORN   (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)

This is a good time of year to plan your financial future. Capricorns are conservative spenders and can now make a series of good fiscal decisions that can lead to excellent investments.
