Week of October 21

ARIES March 21-April 19 Ive been told that nobody sings the word hunger like I do, testified Aries chanteuse Billie Holiday. She wasnt suggesting that she had a stylish way of crooning about fine dining. Rather, she meant hunger in the sense of the longing for lifes poignant richness. Her genius-level ability to express such beauty was due in part to her skillful vocal technique, but also because she was a master of cultivating soulful emotions. Your assignment in the coming weeks, Aries, is to refine and deepen your own hunger.TAURUS April 20-May 20Author Renata Adler expresses my own feelings when she writes, Hardly anyone about whom I deeply care resembles anyone else I have ever met, or heard of, or read about in literature. I bet if youre honest, Taurus, you would say the same. Its almost certainly the case that the people you regard as worthy of your love and interest are absolutely unique. In the sense that there are no other characters like them in the world, they are superstars and prodigies. I bring this to your attention because now is an excellent time to fully express your appreciation for their one-of-a-kind beautyto honor and celebrate them for their entertainment value and precious influence and unparalleled blessings. GEMINI May 21-June 20If you cannot find an element of humor in something, youre not taking it seriously enough, writes author Ilyas Kassam. Thats a key thought for you to keep in mind during the coming weeks. Levity and joking will be necessities, not luxuries. Fun and amusement will be essential ingredients in the quest to make good decisions. You cant afford to be solemn and stern, because allowing those states to dominate you would diminish your intelligence. Being playfuleven in the face of challengeswill ensure your ultimate success.CANCER June 21-July 22 Im hoping the horoscopes I wrote for you in late August helped propel you into a higher level of commitment to the art of transformation. In any case, I suspect that you will have the chance, in the coming weeks, to go even further in your mastery of that art. To inspire you in your efforts, Ill encourage you to at least temporarily adopt one or more of the nicknames in the following list: 1. Flux Luster 2. Fateful Fluctuator 3. Shift Virtuoso 4. Flow Maestro 5. Alteration Adept 6. Change Arranger 7. Mutability Savant 8. Transition ConnoisseurLEO July 23-Aug. 22When one is a stranger to oneself, then one is estranged from others, too, wrote author Anne Morrow Lindbergh. If one is out of touch with oneself, then one cannot touch others. Only when one is connected to ones own core, is one connected to others. In bringing these thoughts to your attention, Leo, I dont mean to imply that you are out of touch with your deep self. Not at all. But in my view, all of us can benefit from getting into ever-closer communion with our deep selves. In the coming weeks, you especially need to work on thatand are likely to have extra success in doing so.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22My cosmic tipsters told me that you will be even smarter than usual in the coming weeks. As I scoured the heavenly maps, I detected signs that you have the potential to be a skilled code-cracker, riddle-decipherer, and solver of knotty problems and tricky dilemmas. Thats why I suggest you express gratitude to your beautiful brain, Virgo. Sing it sweet songs and tell it how much you love it and find out which foods you can eat to strengthen it even more. Now read Diane Ackermans description of the brain: that shiny mound of being, that mouse-gray parliament of cells, that dream factory, that petit tyrant inside a ball of bone, that huddle of neurons calling all the plays, that little everywhere, that fickle pleasuredome. LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22I vote in American elections, but Ive never belonged to a political party. One of my favorite politicians is Bernie Sanders, who for most of his career has been an Independent. But now Im a staunch advocate for the Democrats. Why Because Republicans are so thoroughly under the curse of the nasty, cruel, toxic person known as Donald Trump. Im convinced that its crucial for our countrys well-being that Democrats achieve total victory in the upcoming election. In accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to do your personal equivalent of what Ive done: Unambiguously align yourself with influences that represent your highest, noblest values. Take a sacred stand not just for yourself, but also in behalf of everything you love.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21I loathe narcissism, but I approve of vanity, said fashion writer Diana Vreeland. Heres how I interpret that: People who care mostly for their own feelings and welfare, and who believe theyre more important than everyone else, are boring and repellent. But those who enjoy looking their best and expressing their unique beauty may do so out of a desire to share their gifts with the world. Their motivation might be artistry and generosity, not self-centeredness. In accordance with cosmic potentials, Scorpio, I invite you to elude the temptations of narcissism as you explore benevolent forms of vanity.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21Yes, do let people see you sweat. At least for now, be forthright and revelatory. Let people witness your secret fire, your fierce tang, your salty tears, and your unhealed wounds. Hold nothing back as you give what you havent been able to give before. Be gleefully expressive as you unveil every truth, every question, every buried joy. Dont be crude and insensitive, of course. Be as elegant and respectful as possible. But make it your priority to experiment with sacred vulnerability. Find out how far you can safely go as you strip away the disguises that have kept you out of touch with your full power.CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19Between 2008 and 2017, Southern California had two sizable earthquakes: 5.5 and 5.1 on the Richter scale. But during the same period, the area had 1.8 million small quakes that were mostly too mild to be felt. The ground beneath the feet of the local people was shaking at the rate of once every three minutes. Metaphorically speaking, Capricorn, youre now in a phase that resembles the mild shakes. Theres a lot of action going on beneath the surface, although not much of it is obvious. I think this is a good thing. The changes youre shepherding are proceeding at a safe, gradual, well-integrated pace.AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18No American woman was allowed to earn a medical degree and practice as a physician until Aquarian-born Elizabeth Blackwell did it in 1849. It was an almost impossible feat, since the all-male college she attended undermined her mercilessly. Once she began her career a doctor, she constantly had to outwit men who made it difficult for her. Nevertheless, she persisted. Eventually, she helped create a medical school for women in England and made it possible for 476 women to practice medicine there. I propose that we make her your patron saint for now. May she inspire you to redouble your diligent pursuit of your big dream. Heres your motto: Nevertheless, Im persisting.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20 Henry David Thoreau wrote, I fear my expression may not be extravagant enough, may not wander far enough beyond the narrow limit of my daily experience, so as to be adequate to the truth of which I have been convinced. Youll be wise to have a similar fear, Pisces. According to my analysis, you can generate good fortune for yourself by transcending what you already know and think. Life is conspiring to nudge you and coax you into seeking experiences that will expand your understanding of everything. Take advantage of this opportunity to blow your own mind

OPINION: Honoring Ancestors
10/20/2020 12:00am

The city should support the acquisition of 1305 N. Fifth St. and its inclusion on the Slave Trail. Dear Richmond City Council and city residents,My fourth great-grandmother, Kitty Cary, would have been buried in the Shockoe Hill African Burying Ground, the now invisible Grave Yard for Free People of Colour and For Slaves at Fifth and Hospital streets. She died just over 160 years ago in Richmond, where she lived in the home of her owner on Franklin Street. Elizabeth Fisher, the daughter of her owner, wrote a heartfelt letter to her sister Ann in Philadelphia the very same morning that Kitty died in 1857, sadly informing her sister of the death of their beloved Kitty. The letter brought tears to my eyes as I read of her long illness and painful death. I was touched by how much love was expressed for Kitty in that letter. Kittys daughters who were present were devastated. Her other children and grandchildren had been sold after the death of Elizabeths father a few years prior, splitting up the family. Elizabeth told how she had Kittys body neatly prepared for the grave. It is what she would have done for me she said. Kitty was dressed in the garment that she herself had requested for that purpose. Her last words were spoken to her children in an attempt to comfort them as she herself lay dying, seeing them weeping Dont cry children, dont cry for me, I am going home she breathed her last breath and died.Elizabeth and her sister Jane intended to follow Kittys body to the grave the next day. She indicated that their intention was that no respect would be spared for Kitty. My intention also is that no respect should be spared for Kitty, other family members buried there, or for the more than 22,000 people estimated to have been interred there. In my eyes Kitty holds a place of high honor. And all of those people buried there probably were loved by someone. They were someones child, someones mother, someones father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, grandparent, grandchild, cousin, husband, wife, friend. They are still someones someone. They deserve to be honored. They deserve to have their story told and no longer hidden. And they deserve to be allowed to rest in peace.I came to Richmond in October 2017 to find Kitty and my family.I had only known of the intention of her owner, who moved to Richmond, to keep her. I had no idea of what had actually happened. So I came to Richmond and found Kitty in the letter. The excitement I felt when I realized that I could go to the place that she would have been buried was tremendous. I remember the confusion, and the disappointment upon reaching my destination. I didnt understand the place at all, and I kept thinking that I must be in the wrong place. I hoped that I was in the wrong place. And I left there not knowing until sometime later that it was the right place. That desolate hillside has an abandoned gas station and a billboard on it. It is so disrespectful with streets, a viaduct, railroad tracks and a highway all run through its grounds. But with all that has happened there, it does not make that place or its people not important. Even those whose skeletal remains were obviously moved or scattered, they deserve something better, as even today their essence remains.I thoroughly researched the history of the place where my ancestor Kitty was laid to rest by those who loved her. It has been a horribly sad and disturbing journey seeing the degradation, the disrespect and the destruction associated with this burial ground. I have no idea if she rests there in peace, or if she fell victim to one of the many atrocities that befell that graveyard. Any number of things may have happened to her, from having her body stolen and used as a medical cadaver, to ending up as street fill. Though even if she herself were untouched, how could she rest in peaceThe history of the burial ground is tragic.Equally as terrifying as the burial grounds destructive past is its future, as even today high-speed rail and the widening of Interstate 64 threaten to harm it unless steps are taken to recognize it, acknowledge its full historical boundaries and protect it. This burial ground is supposed to be a place of eternal rest a place of honor and memorial, just like at the two burial grounds next to it. The disparity between them is shocking and quite beyond words.On any given day, a descendant of those buried inside the walls of the Shockoe Hill Cemetery or the Hebrew Cemetery can go and visit the grave of their ancestor, which is still to this day lovingly cared for. That is not true of the African American community whose ancestors died between 1816 and 1879 in Richmond and were buried outside the walls of Shockoe Hill Cemetery. They have been made to disappear, as if they had never existed at all. I wonder when will they be recognized and honored When will they be given the peace that they may rest, and that we may rest knowing we have corrected the wrongIt now appears that a new day may be dawning, as City Council passed a measure to support acquiring the parcel at 1305 N. Fifth St. A second ordinance needed to secure the acquisition of the burial ground is expected to be introduced in November. While the parcel is a small portion of the 31-acre Shockoe Hill African Burying Ground, it lies at its very heart. Now the property may be the citys best chance to claim, memorialize and learn from this extraordinary history.I ask city residents do all they can to support the acquisition of 1305 N. Fifth St. so that it can be appropriately studied, interpreted and remembered. Thank you for your consideration. Lenora McQueen is a member of the descendant community of the Shockoe Hill African Burying Ground. People can get involved by asking their City Council representative to support and protect the burying ground.

Sip, Stay Awhile

If the mod, 2,800-square-foot Rooftop Bar is the go-to jewel of Quirk Hotel, the high-ceilinged, ground floor Lobby Bar is slated to become its jazzy heart.The funny thing is if we hadnt had the pandemic, Im not sure if the re-concepting wouldve come around, says Quirks food and beverage director, Morgan Slade. But it was always an idea that was in the back of everyones head.Five years ago, Quirk opened its doors and its signature restaurant, Maple & Pine. Along with the trendy, ubiquitous ampersand, the restaurant also featured a New American menu with staple items like burrata salad, fancified fried chicken, tagliatelle pasta and duck breast. Stylistically, the food was very composed it was very pretty, Slade says. It kind of pushed us into being a special occasion restaurant.In a 2016 review of Maple & Pine, Style food critic Matthew Freeman concluded: Whether youre here for drinks and some sliders off the bar menu or an extended family brunch, this new Richmond sophistication is sure to find a continuing fan base among out-of-towners and locals alike.We kind of flipped it around a bit, says Lobby Bar executive chef Felipe Bolivar. Instead of adhering to the app, entree and dessert model not that theres anything wrong with that, Bolivar says the Lobby Bar team pursued a more malleable mode of service with a small-plates-centered menu. Thats not to say that the revamped signature restaurant doesnt exude the sophistication of its predecessor. It does. Order a Q75 cocktail made with gin, creme de mure, thyme and sparkling wine and try to not morph into a Bond girl as you raise your shiny flute. Bar snacks like the shell bean hummus and thin-as-air local sourdough crostini are served in wide, shallow pottery bowls works of art befitting their Italian Renaissance-style surroundings built in 1916.But a two-hour fine-dining time commitment is a thing of the pre-pandemic past. When you look at the pandemic scenario you ask What is everyones comfort level Slade says. And, What is their time commitment going to be Are they willing to come sit inside for two hours or do they want drinks and bites before they see where the evening goesFor Bolivar his rsum includes stints at ThallyDC, Iron Gate D.C. and Richmonds the Roosevelt cheffing at the Lobby Bar is all about letting the customer dictate their own experience. Its the hospitality industry, it makes sense to go that avenue rather than having us decide, he says. That customer-driven experience means peace of mind for all eaters, vegans and carnivores alike. The same thought and execution go into each dish, whether youre hankering for the lamb neck fritters served atop stewed garbanzo beans with spicy chili jus or the vegan-friendly, house-made Moroccan couscous with autumn vegetables. And yes, Bolivar says, the couscous is gluten-free. You would never know It took a lot of effort to make it work, but were thinking about everyones needs. The chef himself has a peanut allergy and knows all too-well the woes of dietary restrictions. Vegan dishes, gluten-free dishes theyre not an afterthought, Bolivar says. Another boon of the Lobby Bars varied menu is that it works for the amorphous dining space. Situated literally in the lobby, the restaurants millennial pink curved booths and long marble bar are part and parcel of the hotel itself. Its a unique space, Slade says. Everything is happening at the same time. Before there were these superficial borders it didnt make sense to have designated spaces in a clearly open area. Now, you can order several small plates and a bottle of Nebbiolo for a sit-down dinner or grab an absinthe-infused Modern Day Hemingway to sip in the corner while you read This Side of Paradise. We want our guests to relax, Slade says. There is a lot of stress going on, so we think How do we create a real airy, happy place where people can come and do their own thingThe Lobby Bars stress-free environment includes socially distanced tables, disposable and digital menus and sanitizing between seatings. Diners can choose to enjoy their meals inside, or in the spacious outdoor dining area, adorned with twinkly lights, lush, potted plants and now, heaters. Bolivar notes that the team eased into service with weekend brunch in August. It then tacked on Thursday-Saturday dinner, and as of Monday Oct. 19, the Lobby Bar is up and running seven days a week. We basically deconstructed the whole operation and put it back together, Slade says. The brunch menu leans lighter no biscuits the size of your head here. Instead find smoked mozzarella and caramelized onion frittata, roasted butternut squash and quinoa salad and salade nicoise with white-anchovy-wrapped, sun-dried tomatoes. Dont worry, Bolivar assures us he and sous chef Anna Schmitt of Iron Gate and Seasonal Pantry will also be whipping up hazelnut-chocolate pancakes topped with whipped cream in case you need to soak up a few too many Q75s from the night before.

Week of October 14

ARIES March 21-April 19 Would you be willing to meditate on how you might become more skilled in the arts of intimacy Would you consider reading books and websites that offer guidance about strategies for being the best partner and ally you can be Are you receptive to becoming more devoted to practicing empathy and deep listening Im not saying youre deficient in these matters, nor am I implying that you need to improve your mastery of them any more than the rest of us. I simply want you to know that now is an especially favorable time for you to make progress.TAURUS April 20-May 20Entre chien et loup is a French idiom that literally means between dog and wolf. Its used to describe twilight or dusk, when the light is faint and its tough to distinguish between a dog and a wolf. But it may also suggest a situation that is a blend of the familiar and the unknown, or even a moment when whats ordinary and routine is becoming unruly or wild. Entre chien et loup suggests an intermediary state thats unpredictable or beyond our ability to define. In accordance with astrological omens, I propose you regard it as one of your main themes for now. Dont fight it enjoy it Thrive on itGEMINI May 21-June 20For 34 years, the beloved American TV personality Mr. Rogers did a show for children. Hes now widely acknowledged as having been a powerful teacher of goodness and morality. Heres a fun fact: His actual middle name was McFeely. I propose that you use that as a nickname for yourself. If McFeely doesnt quite appeal to you, maybe try Feel Maestro or Emotion Adept or Sensitivity Genius. Doing so might help inspire you to fulfill your astrological assignment in the coming weeks, which is to allow yourself to experience more deep feelings than usualand thereby enhance your heart intelligence. Thats crucial In the coming weeks, your head intelligence needs your heart intelligence to be working at peak capacity.CANCER June 21-July 22 A blogger named Dr.LoveLlama writes, You may think I am walking around the house with a blanket around my shoulders because I am cold, but in fact the blanket is my cloak and I am on a fantasy adventure. I approve of such behavior during our ongoing struggles with COVID-19, and I especially recommend it to you in the coming days. Youll be wise to supercharge your imagination, giving it permission to dream up heroic adventures and epic exploits that you may or may not actually undertake someday. Its time to become braver and more playful in the inner realms.LEO July 23-Aug. 22According to author Rev. Dr. Marilyn Sewell, The body has its own way of knowing, a knowing that has little to do with logic, and much to do with truth. I recommend that you meditate on that perspective. Make it your keynote. Your physical organism always has wisdom to impart, and you can always benefit from tuning in to itand thats especially important for you right now. So let me ask you: How much skill do you have in listening to what your body tells you How receptive are you to its unique and sometimes subtle forms of expression I hope youll enhance your ability to commune with it during the next four weeks.VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22In his fictional memoir Running in the Family, Virgo author Michael Ondaatje returns to Sri Lanka, the land where he spent his childhood, after many years away. At one point he enthuses that he would sometimes wake up in the morning and just smell things for the whole day. Id love for you to try a similar experiment, Virgo: Treat yourself to a festival of aromas. Give yourself freely to consorting with the sensual joy of the worlds many scents. Does that sound frivolous I dont think it is. I believe it would have a deeply calming and grounding effect on you. It would anchor you more thoroughly in the here and now of your actual life, and inspire you to shed any fantasies that you should be different from who you are.LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22The hardest thing you will ever do is trust yourself, says Libran journalist Barbara Walters. Really I dont think so. In my experience, the hardest thing to do is to consistently treat ourselves with the loving care we need to be mentally and physically healthy. But I do acknowledge that trusting ourselves is also an iffy task for many of us. And yet thats often because we dont habitually give ourselves the loving care we need to be healthy. How can we trust ourselves if we dont put in the work necessary to ensure our vitality But heres the good news, Libra: In the coming weeks, youre likely to be extra motivated and intuitively astute whenever you improve the way you nurture yourself.SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21You cant learn anything when youre trying to look like the smartest person in the room, writes author Barbara Kingsolver. Thats a useful message for you right now. Why Because you will soon be exposed to teachings that could change your life for the better. And if you hope to be fully available for those teachings, you must be extra receptive and curious and open-mindedwhich means you shouldnt try to seem like you already know everything you need to know.SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21Ive decided not to use quotes by famous writers whove endorsed bigoted ideas. In the future, my horoscopes wont mention the work of T. S. Eliot, Roald Dahl, V. S. Naipaul, Edith Wharton, Kingsley Amis, H. P. Lovecraft, Flannery OConnor, Rudyard Kipling, and Louis-Ferdinand Celine. Im sorry to see them go, because Ive learned a lot from some of them. And I understand that many were reflecting attitudes that were widespread in their era and milieu. But as Ive deepened my commitment to fighting prejudice, Ive come to the conclusion that I personally dont want to engage with past perpetrators. Now, in accordance with current astrological omens, I invite you to take an inventory of your own relationship with bigoted influencesand consider making some shifts in your behavior.

If thats true, I expect that a surge of luck will flow your way soon. According to my astrological analysis, fate has grown impatient waiting for you to take the actions that would launch your life storys next chapter.

Allow them to work their magic.PISCES Feb. 19-March 20 Have you formulated wily plans and crafty maneuvers to help you navigate through the labyrinthine tests and trials up ahead I hope so.
