Angel, it depends on what your definition of ghost is really. If you mean the typical ghost that you hear about in hauntings, then no. Most people who
astral project a lot will tell you that a "ghost" in that sense is not really alive or able to interact. It is simply an imprint, a part of the
whole of a being that is left after it dies and slowly fades away.
If you want to interact with the deceased, you would need to be interacting with the essense, the "soul". The part of you that also assumedly leaves
your body during an astral projection. In this case, yes. I believe that you can communicate and interact with a deceased person. If someone is in a
tragic car accident, you may find them wandering around in the astral plane, bewildered to where they are and what has happened. These people move on
fairly quickly once they realize what has happened, and people who died naturally do the same at an even faster rate. At first they may stay around
for a while to attempt to watch over their families, etc, but before long they will realize that there are more important things to do, and more
important places to be.
While I do not believe/trust in psychic mediums in the large majority, this is how any that actually speak to the deceased would go about doing it.
If you are in the astral, you can 'talk' to them much easier than this.
You can also interact with other travellers who are doing the same as you, and I have even been told that you can interact with extraterrestrials (I
have not verified this one myself, though).
Please be aware that there are also negative entities on the astral plane and other planes. Some of them are quite horrible and terrifying. They may
attempt to trick you and appear as the person you are really looking for, etc. From the horror stories I have heard, I would not get involved with
magic, or channelling (including automatic writing, ouiji, etc) as it apparently attracts these entities.
But along with negative entities are also 'higher beings'. Many people have talked to advanced/heavenly beings, and it is even said that you can
interact with spiritual leaders such as Jesus, Buddha, etc etc on the astral plane.
I know a lot of that sounded ridiculous and that is okay. Don't believe anything until you verify it for yourself. And that is a simple summary of
pretty much all the types of entities you can interact with on the astral plane =).
