Aries ♈︎ (March 21 - April 19)- DodgeBow

Taurus ♉︎ (April 20 - May 20)-William Paca House and Garden
Being a Taurus means you love calmness and serenity. A long spa day or a soak in the tub is right up your alley. This zodiac represents steadiness. Taurians are a haven of serenity and a rock of dependability when everything else seems to be falling apart. Therefore, a quiet day sitting in the grass and observing the life around you sounds perfect!

Gemini ♊︎ (May 21-June 20)- Live! Casino
Wouldn’t having two of you make life so much easier? Well, this is what Geminis think of every day. Gemini is an expressive and witty sign that embodies two distinct characters; you never know which one you will encounter. They tend to abruptly become serious, reflective, and restless but are social, conversational, and up for some fun. They think things out rather than merely relying on their emotions, which makes them incredibly flexible in any circumstance.

Cancers ♋︎ (June 21 - July 22)- Wild Kid Acres

They are extremely sensitive and emotional people who care a great deal for their families and their homes. Cancer is empathetic and attached to those they surround themselves with. People with their Sun in Cancer are exceedingly devoted and sensitive to the suffering of others.

This family-owned farm is sure to interest Cancers. Built and run by the Martinez family, Wild Kid Acres began as an animal rescue sanctuary but quickly peaked the interests of the neighbors nearby who asked to play with the animals. Today, Wild Kid Acres operates as a free-range farm using its animals to assist in mental health therapy. They also host the Mayo Farmers Market once a month, along with hosting a multitude of fitness classes such as yoga, HIIT, and CrossFit, which you can do with…wait for it….Goats! Cancers will appreciate the family connection that went into building Wild Kid Acres and the mental health advocacy that the farm promotes.
Leo ♌︎ (July 23- August 22)- Chesapeake Arts Center
Put the light up and roll out the red carpet because the Leos have arrived. They can do anything they set their minds to in any area of life they devote themselves to, and they are theatrical, creative, self-assured, dominant, and incredibly tough to refuse. A Leo's unique qualities make them the "king of the jungle."

What better way to exhibit a Leo's theatrical and creative nature than to visit the Chesapeake Arts Center (CAC)? The Art Center features two top-notch performance spaces, the Hammonds Lane Theatre, and the Studio 194 Theatre. The Hammonds Lane Theatre features a multiple-aisle seating arrangement with a 752-person seating capacity rehearsal hall. Meanwhile, Studio 194 is a small intimate space with the ability to host smaller productions, concerts, meetings, lectures, and rehearsals. Even as a non-Leo, the author has enjoyed summer Musical theatre camps hosted at CAC. Leos would enjoy not only the musical and dance performances hosted at this location but also the local art pieces displayed. So, whether you are coming to watch or coming in to perform, CAC is sure to be a hit amongst Leos.

We can’t think of a better place to do this than the Annapolis Visitors Center. The volunteers are happy to assist with the suggestion of plans and directions and even help set up the activities. And just because it’s in Annapolis doesn’t mean you can’t also plan activities in the entire county. Virgos will appreciate having a place where they can get all the information out in the open and plan their visits to Annapolis and Anne Arundel County in one place.
Libra ♎︎ (September 23 - October 22) – Maryland State House
Libras are considerate and fair, and they detest being by themselves. They place a high value on relationships and seek a partner who can serve as a mirror image of themselves.

Natural justice seekers, Libras are sure to appreciate the Maryland State House.

Scorpio ♏︎ (October 23 - November 21)- Mission Escape Room
Scorpios are intense, passionate, and cunning individuals who believe in "all or nothing." They naturally can charm people and use their solid auras and thoughts to control circumstances and interpersonal interactions. They can dwell in the depths of their intense emotions. They traverse the world like a game to win and conquer whatever they put their sights upon, craving connection and psychological depth.

To test human connections and psychological depth, look no further than mission escape rooms. There are three locations currently in Anne Arundel County, one in Gambrills, Arundel Mills, and Annapolis! The idea is straightforward for people who have never participated in an escape room. You have 50 minutes or fewer to escape a confined space by working as a team and using all your wits and talents. You'll need to use teamwork, puzzle solving, and clue-finding to open the closed door. Even if you can't get away in time, you'll still have a good time! But intense and cunning Scorpios will certainly outwit the tricks and puzzles these Escape Rooms provide.
Sagittarius ♐︎ (November 22 - December 21)- Schooner Woodwind
The adventurous and energetic Sagittarius sign represents the zodiac's travelers. They are inspired to travel the world in a quest for the meaning of life due to their philosophical outlook and open-minded intellect. Extrovert, upbeat, enthusiastic, and open to change. This Sun sign represents people who are frequently engaged with cerebral tasks, but when they find stability, they demonstrate their capacity to translate abstract ideas into tangible outcomes.

For our adventure-seeking Sages, the Chesapeake Bay, while often beautiful and serene, can quickly change its tune as bodies of water are unpredictable. Sagittarius, accustomed to change and call to action, will enjoy the Schooner Woodwind Sailing Cruises.

Pass the US Naval Academy, beautiful residences, and the old city skyline as you sail by. Set the sails, take the wheel, or unwind while sipping a refreshing beverage.
Capricorn ♑︎ (December 22 - January 19)- Historic London Town and Gardens
Capricorn is a fixed sign that stands for time and duty. Capricorn people tend to be conventional and frequently have a severe demeanor. These people have a sense of inner freedom that allows them to make significant strides in their personal and professional lives. They are experts in self-control and possess the capacity to set the pace. They will grow from their failures and succeed entirely through experience and knowledge.

Capricorns appreciate growing through experiences. Therefore, Historic London Town might be up your alley. Explore a botanical sanctuary on the South River and a "forgotten" colonial port city. You will get the chance to learn about horticulture, archaeology, and history at this living museum and garden. Group guided tours are provided of the parks and historical areas but fear not our independent-minded Capricorns. Self-guided tours are also welcome.
Aquarius ♒︎ (January 20 - February 18)- Chill Axes
People with their Sun in Aquarius, the sign that stands out from the rest of the zodiac, feel unique. As a result, they tend to be eccentric and enthusiastic in their pursuit of freedom or occasionally introverted and reserved because they are frightened to show their actual selves. They are both knowledgeable, deep thinkers who enjoy battling for noble causes.

The top throwing location in Anne Arundel County is Chill Axes. The goal is to throw the axe at the projected target. In addition to axe throwing, you can stay and relax in their lounges with food and drinks. Although this activity may seem a little out there, Aquarius should appreciate the strategy it takes going into something as simple as throwing an axe at a target as well as the ability to choose to play by yourself or with others.
Pisces ♓︎ (February 19 - March 20)- Renaissance Festival
Pisces are pretty friendly and frequently choose to socialize with people from various backgrounds. They are always giving and selfless, which is an excellent intention if they don't anticipate receiving much in return. People with Sun in Pisces have a natural grasp of the life cycle and are guided by their senses, which helps them build unique emotional connections with other people. With that being said...

This should interest Pisces because of your value in interaction with people of different backgrounds. The Renaissance Festival is ideal for entertaining big crowds and royal subjects of all ages. This experience provides something for everyone. So, whether you go alone or go with friends and family, Pisces are guaranteed to make connections and have fun!
