AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
Re: Shaman? and seeing eye? By: TainoShaman Apr 07, 2014

A shaman is a person who is very close to the spirit world. Typically a tribal person but occasionally, especially in our modern era, the spirit will choice a person who has great medicine. The only way to become a shaman is if the spirits choice you, although, you can do shamanic practices like shamanic journeying and other practices.
As for seeing spirits on the physical plane without the third eye or AP is prettymuch impossible. Sorry.
That's classic shamanism, core shamanism allows one to be a shaman and not be called by the spirits to do so. Also, anyone who isn't specifically of the Tungus region (where the term shaman comes from) they aren't really a shaman; they are a shamanic figure with their own culturally relevant term. For those people who do not have a culturally revelant term that they know (such as within the Northern Tradition), shaman is an acceptable term. That still doesn't necessarily make them a shaman, they are just using the term as best as they can.
So you can study/learn it from either the spirits or people, but I would first learn what it means to be a shaman, what sorts of challenges you'll face due to it. Kaldera's shamanism series has a pretty awesome chapter in there that tells you why you wouldn't want to be a shaman. I think you might want to read that before jumping into things. Just be careful what you wish for/call yourself, because someone might take you up on it.
AP and the third eye (or brow chakra) are used within and come from specific cultures. The biggest culture this has at the current time is within New Age dogma. New Age dogma states that everyone, regardless of what their path is, must learn and work with their chakras otherwise they can't function properly. The chakras come from a specific culture which the New Age movement has picked and chosen from. They come from Hinduism. Karma (another part of New Age dogma) also comes from Hinduism, however karma is limited to their culture, to their believers. To anyone outside of it, karma doesn't apply. So the chakra system would logically be the same way.
This concept of things only applying to the people within the tradition is something seen with very old cultural traditions and within a select few newer ones based upon older cultural traditions.
But I digress, my point is the third eye isn't a requirement for seeing spirits while on the physical plane. As for AP, many people do not use the terms AP in reference to journeying into the Unseen or Spirit worlds, because a) it is not culturally relevant or b) AP and what they do sound nothing alike. I'm one of the people who don't use this term because whenever I leave my body it seems much more colorful and less controlled than AP is.
So again, you don't need to know AP to see spirits.
