(March 21 to April 19)

Professionally speaking, you have become a beacon for others around you. You may have noticed in the last two weeks that some people — despite having argued against your ideas — are now listening to you more. It's a blessed sky to start new projects, which will be released in the coming months. There will be new stories for singles and new projects for couples. If doubts remain, soon the way will be clear! Have courage!

TEMPO: vivacissimo al galoppo



(April 20 to May 20)

Doubts about the future re-emerge, especially mid-week when a conflict in the workplace stalls optimism. It's not for a lack of collaboration opportunities or projects, but for not meeting economic expectations. Because of this, try especially hard to enjoy the weekend and relax, but also flirt and talk about love.

TEMPO: adagietto incalzando


(May 21 to June 21)

The sky is still full of fraught nerves, but if nothing else this Full Moon brings back clarity and dialogue with your partner. You will be looking for solutions, new shared places or roles between the two of you, but it's not always a simple mediation. A moment of tension will come during the weekend; those already in crisis may not make it. An interesting phone call or email will come in relation to work in the middle of the week. For some, this will be something that could change their career prospects.

TEMPO: lento moderato


(June 22 to July 22)

Despite the stars speaking to me about professional roadblocks continuing for you, this also happens to be a good week to start meditating about solutions that can lead to something so much more fulfilling. And in love: Mars and Venus continue to push us closer to love. All you have to do is want it!

TEMPO: allegretto gioioso




(July 23 to August 22)

What could prove to be a dead weight in work is actually lighter than usual. The change that you're about to undergo is a bearer of the new, with wit and enthusiasm. And right now, after facing the preparatory hardships, you're becoming aware. Rusty singles are getting back in the game, for now with some entertaining encounters. Although, just between us, maybe it's time to get back to love. For those already in love, around Feb. 3 or 4 a surprising proposal will come.

TEMPO: marcia appassionato




(August 23 to September 22)


This Full Moon, alas, brings back reflection and isolation. As I said before, work continues to absorb a lot of energy. In particular, you're taking on responsibility beyond your expertise and you can't do otherwise. In some cases, it's your family weighing down the mood. But, you're tough and I'm sure you'll come through just fine. Love waits until the spring to be resurrected.

TEMPO: largo calando


(September 23 to October 23)

The professional sphere is always on top, but it's from there that some interesting knowledge could come out. This Moon expands the range of collaborations and people moving around your new projects. In other words: more support, but also for any projects that could be developed in the future. And it's not just there — someone you've recently met, or are going to meet, could also broaden the range of your heart.

TEMPO: allegro marziale





(October 24 to November 20)

Around Feb. 4, work-related issues will finally be discussed. You should put the brakes on anything that isn't gratifying — whether that's family or financial matters. But, don't panic: A solution will come on Feb. 6. Despite everything, your feelings are in a recovery phase. Those who have the same old story continue without putting stakes down. New knowledge stimulates passions, although they're fleeting. Couples will struggle with questions about home life.

TEMPO: marcia moderato


(November 21 to December 22)

This Full Moon definitely brings a "dreamy" week. You have been given a new way to project your desires, but above all to better understand the goals of your love life. Often these things converge — especially if you can find a wall on the other side. Late February will be a better time to think about things in pairs. Job prospects remain good, but remember: It's not just desires and goals, you also need a lot of patience.

TEMPO: adagio sognante



(December 23 to January 20)

You're definitely in a period of great change. These certainly relate to work, but more than anything your finances. Some choices will be unavoidable, especially for those who have changed jobs. But right now you're noticing the first positive results. In this sense a day of strength will be Feb. 6. New discoveries over the weekend will be interesting for singles, while couples, with a little anxiety, will plan a more concrete future.

TEMPO: moderato deciso



(January 21 to February 21)

It is not a difficult period for love, but at work you will be put under a little bit of pressure. There are contractual agreements to be reassessed, problems with a partner-collaborator, or the general sense that goals are not being achieved. It's better to take a break over the weekend of Feb. 6-8 — perhaps with a trip. Love will be put in a stand-by period: new couples may have second thoughts, while singles are content with passions of the moment.

TEMPO: andantino stressato



(February 22 to March 20)

The Full Moon this week will give an extra punch to your work projects. Still there is no clarity on the objectives, but at least you have the opportunity to take a step forward, despite everything seeming tiring. Those who have fought with their partner can now reconcile; those in crisis may find themselves in a secret tryst. For strong couples there is a moment of grace, while for certain singles this weekend, an old friendship might prove to be something more.

TEMPO: allegretto affettuoso

In Uganda, Having A "Rolex" Is About Not Going Hungry

Experts fear the higher food prices resulting from the conflict in Ukraine could jeopardize the health of many Ugandans. Take a look at this ritzy-named simple dish.

Zziwa Fred, a street vendor who runs two fast-food businesses in central Uganda, rolls a freshly prepared chapati known as a Rolex.

WAKISO — Godfrey Kizito takes a break from his busy shoe repair shop every day so he can enjoy his favorite snack, a vegetable and egg omelet rolled in a freshly prepared chapati known as a Rolex. But for the past few weeks, this daily ritual has given him neither the satisfaction nor the sustenance he is used to consuming. Kizito says this much-needed staple has shrunk in size.

Most streets and markets in Uganda have at least one vendor firing up a hot plate ready to cook the Rolex, short for rolled eggs — which usually comes with tomatoes, cabbage and onion and is priced anywhere from 1,000 to 2,000 Ugandan shillings (28 to 57 cents). Street vendor Farouk Kiyaga says many of his customers share Kizito’s disappointment over the dwindling size of Uganda’s most popular street food, but Kiyaga is struggling with the rising cost of wheat and cooking oil.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has halted exports out of the two countries, which account for about 26% of wheat exports globally and about 80% of the world’s exports of sunflower oil, pushing prices to an all-time high, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, a United Nations agency. Not only oil and wheat are affected. Prices of the most consumed foods worldwide, such as meat, grains and dairy products, hit their highest levels ever in March, making a nutritious meal even harder to buy for those who already struggle to feed themselves and their families. The U.N. organization warns the conflict could lead to as many as 13.1 million more people going hungry between 2022 and 2026.

Central to the tragic absurdity of this war is the question of language. Vladimir Putin has repeated that protecting ethnic Russians and the Russian-speaking populations of Ukraine was a driving motivation for his invasion.

Yet one month on, a quick look at the map shows that many of the worst-hit cities are those where Russian is the predominant language: Kharkiv, Odesa, Kherson.
