Searching for new emotional and professional stability continues to be your mission. This week will be decisive for some to lay the foundations for a future project. It's about choices, but also amazing opportunities that confirm a positive trend. A resolution to a dispute is just around the corner, especially one that concerns family, money or property. Lonely hearts have strong passions: Eros has the better of your heart at the moment.

TEMPO: allegro focoso

This week will be about the new scents of spring and awakening — you can finally breathe more calmly, in a more purposeful atmosphere. Monday and Tuesday are good days to propose or take on a project that has been on hold, with possibly major news for you professionally. In love there's more understanding and dialogue with your partner: This time, work problems or tensions with parents are gone. For lonely hearts there is a passionate encounter around the corner, but this will mean a challenge …

TEMPO: vivace fiducioso

Although Saturn is in opposition — which blocks your ascent and requires caution — there will be a real opportunity to put a project into the pipeline. From March 24-26 it will be possible to close a deal, get a confirmation or see business grow. For some, problems of the heart are silenced by work objectives, but it may be time to face or rekindle the relationship. It's a busy week for lonely hearts, especially if you're looking for part-time emotions.

TEMPO: andante energico

Spring brings your heart more momentum and confidence. Already from Friday, lonely hearts would do well to go out and be seen around: There's romance ahead. We cannot yet speak of certainties, but by overcoming fears a new encounter can go on and become something more. Those recovering from a recent separation can now go back to looking forward to new meetings. At work, the end of the week helps clear your mind on future objectives.

TEMPO: allegretto passionale

This week, the heart beats, in the middle of the lackluster distractions of work and family which require your attention. Nothing really worrying, but until mid-April a sense of nervousness could hang in the background. Finances return to worry you: A recent spending has flattened your bank account. In work, midweek agreements are favored, although some negotiation will soon be revisited.

TEMPO: andante zoppicando

If for some time now you haven't felt butterflies in your stomach, be prepared — because it's now time to rise. All singles of this sign be warned: This is a sky full of knowledge and emotions which forbid you to stay at home. Among the most favored for you are those whose sign is Taurus. It's a beautiful week for those in search of new collaborations or new projects. A small revisit of the balance sheet is advised, mainly because of unforeseen expenses.

TEMPO: vivace progettando

Your focus this week remains on work. There are those who recently accepted a compromise, or who have found a new job that doesn't exactly mirror their expectations. The situation is chaotic, but you go with the flow. These are exciting days, full of events and challenges that will soon define your professional horizons. Love suffers from the pressures of work, but there will be a strong recovery.

TEMPO: marcia animato

I think you're fully aware that at the moment there are hardships, both emotional and professional. But you're also aware that you're working for a more peaceful future, and the path is ever more clearer to you. At this time, it's important to put one foot in front of the other and move on without losing your temper. The second half of the year will bring you rewards. The stories that come into being are sort of "indefinite" ... Seize the best they can offer, by coming to terms with your own intransigence.

TEMPO: adagetto agitato

There could be some tension at work around Wednesday, when a co-worker or your boss could surprisingly turn the tables on a project. At this time it's not a good idea to exacerbate the situation with an out-of-place word — it's better to find middle ground. It's important to sow well today, because there is too much to reap before summer. In love, the stars protect you: There is a possibility of a great turn of events and beautiful surprises. Many "targets" who in the past seemed insensitive to advances are now very much interested. Those who held out will win!

TEMPO: marcia spiccato

For all couples, it's a wonderful time to plan a major event. There is a great desire to return to building things, under a sky that stimulates and helps. Sure, some small organizational tensions may arise but nothing can diminish the excitement and beauty of the moment. So, on to marriage, moving in, or even new babies. The beginning of the week and weekend are passionate and memorable for lonely hearts. At work, incoming offers may leave you speechless.

TEMPO: vivacissimo pizzicato

Work continues to have the edge over your thoughts. Recently a situation has restarted your enthusiasm and creativity. Again this week, especially around Wednesday, a positive trend calls to discuss solutions or new projects. In love, you've probably noticed a certain distance from your partner. For now let it run, but soon you'll need to find a more balanced way to divide your energy between work and affections. Single people must make do with hit-and-run relationships.

TEMPO: andante laborioso

For lonely hearts, now is the time to be seen around. Eros whets your appetite and sets the table for two. For now you're in a "fast-food" mood, let's see if the story will be continued. Stable couples can look beyond recent discussions and come to love again. There are still doubts about the economic future, but all together it's solvable. Around Friday, an amazing opportunity or important choice in your professional field is coming to be seized.

Putin In The Middle East, A Chilling Reminder Of The Power He Still Holds

Defying an ICC arrest warrant, Russian President Vladimir Putin is on a one-day foray to UAE and Saudi Arabia to display his role in shaping the geopolitical and energy landscape — and to make the world forget about the Ukraine war just a little bit more.

PARIS — There are several remarkable aspects to Vladimir Putin's trip to the Middle East: firstly, the fact that it is taking place at all. The Russian president has been facing an International Criminal Court arrest warrant since March: since then, he has only traveled to countries that are safe for him, such as former Soviet Republics and China.

This is his first foray outside his own world: he's showing to Russians back home that he's not a global outcast.

His destinations are also interesting: the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, in a whirlwind one-day trip. He arrived in the Emirates in the middle of COP28, making sure to go after the Western leaders that had left. French President Emmanuel Macron and U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris were there last week, making the choreography perfect for Putin — and for the UAE, which has positioned itself as a hub for circumventing international sanctions.
