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.
hopefully this isn't the first time someone has reached out in this way, but I need to be put in contact with someone who knows a bit about magic or abilities or family witch gentry. My grandmother always called it 'the gift' and now i'm looking for answers.
is someone able to help me?

Witchcraft and Magick is a practice, it has nothing to do with your genetics or family history nor is it something that can be passed down. However, sometimes the word "gift" is used when a person has a special talent for example when it comes to divination. In my country, a person who is talented at divining or using tarot is usually referred as a person who has "the gift". However, keep in mind that even if you are talented in a specific practice, it does not mean that this is a trait passed down by genetics or your family; not really something that is carried in DNA like blue eyes or dark hair.

If you knew your grandmother growing up, chances are she already taught you. Being taught the ways actually has very little to do with magick but instead teaches how to live--a philosophy to every day life.
A big one in my family was "never think ill of someone especially out of anger or worry" as a way to be conscious and in control of one own thoughts, not letting emotions run them. Never say something you don't truly mean was another.
Then there was a lot of superstition and spirit etiquette--never say the name of the dead unless you want them near, never speak ill of the dead, never walk over a grave, etc.
But of course, culture matters. What I was taught isn't necessarily what others would be. Regardless, you should reflect on how you were raised and what you were taught. More than likely, you are already prepared by your family. Even if your grandmother's child (your parent) didn't practice, he/she likely unknowingly passed along the same philosophy because it was second nature.
