(March 21 to April 19)

This Full Moon plays havoc with your emotions, but brings to light the challenges. Arians who have recently made a new acquaintance will realize that the other party is avoiding them. If you’ve just started a new project, a co-worker or boss will slow progress. But you’re a testa dura, stubborn in setting out clear goals and seeing them to completion. Keep going, it will be worth it!




(April 20 to May 20)

You must make a break with the past. In love, there are exes on the scene causing trouble. Stable couples are in love, but now is not the time to be making future plans. Your work life blows much the same way, with debates, disputes and even changes to your role in the air. Sharpen your tongue for Wednesday and Thursday.



(May 21 to June 21)

Finally the horizon is full of new opportunities. Doubts disappear and winning strategies emerge, as your time for review and revision is now complete. The key word is realism. So do not bite off more than you can chew, neither at work nor in love. Sunday January 11 will be a special day.


(June 22 to July 22)

Your time for reflection continues, but this week you are in a class of your own. Your resolve and determination return. At work, new initiatives spring up, especially for self-employed Cancerians. In love, your attention turns to the future, albeit only in thought for now. Singles realize it is time to start a relationship – couples in crisis take the opposite route.





(July 23 to August 22)

Work hits you full on this week. Your concentration and methodical mind are back. On January 6 and 7, you’ll be overloaded, but be careful not to worry too much later in the week when someone could stress you out about financial matters. Love takes a back seat this week, and there is much to be said for a bit of solitude, or rather reflection, especially if you are having doubts about your partner.





(August 23 to September 22)


The return to work looks like a city post-hurricane. You must bring the situation back under control and face up to a diary full of appointments. If you are thinking about changing location, job or office structure, or making demands, this is the moment. With two caveats: be patient and ask for help. Your love life is underwhelming, although this weekend will erase the emotional blur.


(September 23 to October 23)

This week brings great strength, with many planets on your side. Prioritize new projects, initiatives or collaborations. An important telephone call is coming between January 7 and 8. Lonely souls will be tempted by an apple from Eve. If this emotional fasting persists, ask yourself why. The Full Moon will encourage you to focus on your job, but also to resolve some ongoing family problems.






(October 24 to November 20)


The week starts on a low. Anxiety monopolizes January 6 and 7, as bickering with colleagues or work delays are in the cards. Be patient, because the Full Moon’s message is to keep your eyes on the future and to look ahead of the short-term stumbling blocks. Even love will be affected by this heaviness, especially for Scorpios with a secret or long-distance relationship. Prospects improve come the weekend, and singles may re-encounter an old flame.



(November 21 to December 22)


At this moment in time, your objectives are quite clear and defined. If you are still holding on to past baggage, now you can lay it to rest. Love can take many different forms, as someone is teaching you. Couples await new beginnings which are on their way: moving house, a marriage to organize, the arrival of a baby. By the weekend, unexpected feelings will be coming your way.




(December 23 to January 20)


This week’s Full Moon restores your desire for good planning and concreteness. Recent lovebirds are now looking to define the relationship. Couples are talking cohabitation, marriage and children, as well as house purchases or renovations. At work, old collaborations or projects are revived, and more generally, this is a time that you can demand more.




(January 21 to February 21)


This will be an interesting week that throws lonely hearts into passionate encounters. These are "hit-and-run" games of seduction, but rule nothing out. The stars are looking good even for Aquarians who decide to turn the page or serenely close a story. Stable couples are in love, although it is too early to make plans. Work commitments are increasing; a new project or task demands energy and concentration. You’re tired, but hold on.




(February 22 to March 20)


If you approach a test at work positively, it will open new doors in the future. The same could apply to you and your partner, especially if you’re talking about relocating. Will they follow you? New couples and singles are driven by a passion to discover new horizons, as are couples in crisis who may stumble into the novelty of a mischievous betrayal.

Searching For Marianna, A Pregnant Doctor From Mariupol Held Captive By The Russians

We’ve heard about the plight of the soldiers-turned-prisoners from Mariupol. Here are some traces of the disturbing fate of a young female doctor who’s been taken away.

A paper dove reads "Mariupol" at a shelter for displaced children in Uzhhorod, western Ukraine.

"Wait for me, because I will return…"

Marianna Mamonova wrote these words to her family, among the text messages and short phone calls that are the only remaining fragments used to piece together her recent past. We also have a photo of her, posted on Russian websites, where she looks into the lens, gaunt and exhausted, signed with a number like a concentration camp prisoner.

Until the Russian-Ukrainian war, Mamonova’s biography was available to anyone who wanted to know. She was born in 1991, studied at the Ternopil Medical University, and later at the Kyiv Military Academy. After completing her studies, she was sent to work in the coastal city of Berdiansk. Her mother says that this is where her daughter's dream came true: She’d always wanted to be a military doctor, and worked in Berdiansk for three years, receiving the rank of officer in the Ukrainian army.

Beginning in 2014, she’d worked stints as a front-line doctor in the Donbas region, and when Russia invaded Ukraine in February she went to war again. This time in Mariupol.

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.
