There are, of course, infinite ways to explore the wonderful cosmos that is Los Angeles. From food tours to architectural journeys to those legendary “Maps of the (Movie and TV) Stars,” people have been charting their courses through our sprawling jewel of a town following the most varied interests, landmarks and stories. You could also, to paraphrase the great bohemian and jazzman Chet Baker, “get lost,” letting your feet (or your wheels, more likely) take you where they may, finding secret paths like an old-timey flâneur or flâneuse sauntering about in search of the unknown.
But you could actually split the difference between predetermined tours and rambling meanderings, and this is where Astrology (yes, Astrology) comes in handy. Whether you believe “our fate is written in the stars” or you just like to add a little pop-wisdom structure (and small talk fodder) to your decision making, check out our series of Los Angeles activities to please every sign of the Zodiac.
You can choose your own sign, take a date or a friend to the place most suitable to theirs, or get really ambitious and sample each experience on this star-struck baker’s dozen every month when the sign changes. Here at the Mystical Division of Discover Los Angeles (not an actual Division), we prophecy a stellar time will be had regardless!
Pisces: Museum of Jurassic Technology
We have two locations close(ish) to each other where Pisces (February 19 - March 20) will feel most at home. Go first to the Museum of Jurassic Technology (9341 Venice Blvd, Culver City 90232), the eccentric Culver City cabinet of wonders full of all artifacts odd and wonderful. Pisces loves difference and uniqueness—and even the hours are unique at the Museum of Jurassic Technology, so check before going. The Tula Tea Room upstairs and rooftop garden will provide your Pisces with a much-needed space for reflection.
After processing this uncanny experience, jump on the 10 and take them to Santa Monica Beach, or go down Venice Boulevard to Venice Beach. Trust us on this—Fishes (Pisces) need their water, and fortunately the mighty Pacific belongs to all of us here in Los Angeles. The life-giving liquid will work wonders on the mood of your Pisces; witness them springing to excitement as soon as they are within sight of the ocean.
Bonus Astrological Location for All Signs: If you want to learn more (or pretty much anything) about astrological or any other mystical matter, the library of the Philosophical Research Society/University of Philosophical Research (3910 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles 90027) in Los Feliz is open on Fridays and contains one of the most important collections of esoteric books in the world. Collected by Los Angeles scholar and mystic Manly P. Hall in the mid-20th century, the library contains many interesting and unusual volumes that will reveal everything you ever wanted to know about astrology (but maybe didn’t know where to ask).
