This beautiful Sun in your sign will embrace Uranus' unpredictability and bring unexpected revolutions. Singles will suddenly fall in love, couples will make important decisions, and there will be changes of scenery in your professional life. Revolutions, however positive they may be, are asking you to break with routine — which could cause a bit of agitation. I advise you to face this period with great mental flexibility: Go with the flow and you won't regret it.

TEMPO: allegretto aritmico


This week begins with impatience. Answers at work are overdue — and more generally, there's a delay in negotiations. The sky in the medium-to-long term is on your side, but for now it calls for calm and optimism. Professional concerns will inevitably interfere with your relationship, and you will end up discussing financial matters. A greater change will be felt from Wednesday, when the Moon comes into favor: Give yourself a relaxing break for Easter, a time that could also lead lonely hearts to surprise encounters.

TEMPO: marcia spazientita


Wednesday and Thursday mark a moment of reflection when it comes to work issues, triggered by a small misunderstanding or an annoying spat with a co-worker. It's nothing too serious but it hides a bigger problem: For some time now you have been looking for the "right place to be" and you feel that sooner or later you will have to make an important decision, which will change everything entirely. It's a wonderful weekend for love and dialogue with your partner. The weekend will also bring good opportunities for lonely hearts in search of new love: A friendship may turn out to be something more.

TEMPO: vivace riflessivo


Do you feel like you're experiencing a period of inconsistency? One day you're proactive and optimistic about the future; the next you fear failure ... The only antidote to this is realism. The opportunities are there, just evaluate them — both at work and at home. It's a favorable week to forge new alliances in the workplace, as well as in your heart. The weekend may bring family tensions: better to spend Easter with your friends!

TEMPO: marcia instabile


You're difficult to be around at the moment. To say the least, you're impatient. Work is definitely what's bothering you here, and comments from colleagues or a boss just don't go down well. Deal with your ego, stay calm and don't make hasty decisions. Those who have recently discussed love or those who are looking for a contact may find it hard to compromise. Lonely hearts will find new energy this Easter weekend — but over a lunch with friends. This period of tension is almost over and soon you will regain possession of the positive and dynamic sky, making 2015 a favorable year for those born under this sign!

TEMPO: adagio elettrico


Here we are at last, a good week for your sign! Professionally you're back on track and, despite some delays on projects or "organizational" fatigue, you haven't been lacking grit or opportunities — including outstanding money. It's time to ask for the right compensation for your efforts and commitments, and it's time to bid goodbye to those who sap your energy! On the feelings front, there is stability in marital or cohabitational projects. Love (including yourself) to the max!

TEMPO: allegrissimo con fuoco


Although some issues have not yet been resolved, you can say that you've taken the reins of your professional life. Many have changed professional duties to bring new life into collaborations. The road is steep but this enthusiasm will take you far — even into unexpected situations. It's a beautiful weekend for singles. New love will be formed with the right "tension" to keep on sparkling.

TEMPO: allegretto con novità


Those with big projects at work are uncertain about what will happen at the end of the assignment. It's the same mood for affections, where couples are living "for the day" —postponing joint projects until the end of the summer may be a good decision. Lonely hearts are wary of new encounters, while those in crisis are entering a revision phase. Tension is palpable but these problems are not unsolvable. Go towards the summer making important choices that will lead to a new stability.

TEMPO: lento insofferente


Right now professional agreements or collaborations depend on your ability to accept compromises. Although you are totally in the right, sometimes "giving in" on some aspects and keeping an eye on the most important issues is a sign of great strategic wisdom — one must allow a Pawn to be sacrificed to save the Queen. The beginning of the week, in this sense, can be decisive when it comes to old controversies. In love there is a transient cloud of pessimism, though the sky in the long term remains beautiful and radiant. It will pass.

TEMPO: marcia naturale


Here's a week of great strength when it comes to work. Wednesday and Thursday are important days to come forward and propose new ideas. Those who sowed well and persevered despite last year's difficulties will soon be able to gather the first ripe fruits. In love, singles are favored, once more in a state of grace. A small decline will be noticed in couples over the weekend — nothing terrible, just a misunderstanding with your partner or with a family member who's breaking … the eggs in your basket.

TEMPO: allegretto con profitto


After Venus, it's Mars' turn to get on your nerves. At work you have the feeling that your efforts aren't being rewarded like they deserve to be. Despite this fatigue, it's important to remember to have clear goals, and that a motivational factor is necessary. Love is fatigued, both for singles and couples, but Easter weekend will be a beautiful time for recovery.

TEMPO: adagio sostenuto


Change is at the center of your thoughts. A new professional path, possible financial stability and a new life ... Even if these goals are clear in your mind, the way to reach them is less defined. Keep your eyes open: An event or person will soon show you the way to these new opportunities. In love you're trying to find a compromise with your partner, between work and responsibilities that are keeping you at bay. For now there's dialogue, but for those who have long been in serious crisis the reckoning is near.

How Western Sanctions Are Quietly Undermining Russia's Fighting Power

Despite what the Kremlin claims, Western sanctions against Russia are working. Perhaps most important is the embargo on electronic component exports, which prevents the Russian army from rebuilding tanks and missiles severely depleted in the war.

-Analysis-

PARIS Europe is shooting itself in the foot.

That was the narrative that spread among both the public and economists: the European Union sanctions against Russia were bound to backfire, without ever really taking a toll on Moscow — power shortages this winter in the West, while Russia "bathes in cash" thanks to soaring energy prices and a rising ruble. All the while, the received wisdom told us, Moscow will be able to skirt any EU export embargoes via the black market or thanks to its Chinese ally.

The ever masochistic European Union was blindly following the U.S, rather than truly defending our interests by advocating a rapid diplomatic solution, a formula that ultimately means "just let Putin take Ukraine".

The only problem is that this narrative is that it's a myth. It is a line of rhetoric based on a lack of understanding of the real objectives and functioning of sanctions.

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.
