There is determination in this sky with a great desire to get things done! When your motor is revved up, it may seem that the world around you is slow and sluggish. Don't go forward anxiously, things will happen at the right time while your sky maintains a patient and concentrative order.

TEMPO: adagio pazientando


OK, last week's return of Saturn to opposition weighed heavily on you with anxiety, discouragement and delays. From the middle of this week, the sky will take off with a twist that will silence even the most resistant of discontentments. Smiles will return, even in love.

TEMPO: allegretto sollevato


Saturn has (temporarily) left your opposition and this is already good news. Jupiter and Venus in the Sixth House facilitate negotiations and pave the way for defining agreements and contracts. The only jarring notes are fatigue, both physical and financial. Everything is in recovery, especially your heart.

TEMPO: andantino affaticato


The recovery phase continues, leading to a more energetic and optimistic second half of the summer, towards an autumn of strong growth. The Sun and Mars will be in your sign for some time and this week they join Mercury to restore clarity and better ideas.

TEMPO: andante risvegliato


Despite the sky remaining protected and illuminated by Jupiter and Venus, the presence of these planets in your Twelfth House might give you the feeling that everything is moving in slow motion and your life is passing by behind a fogged pane of glass. This feeling will fade soon, disproved by an enthusiastic and optimistic confirmation.

TEMPO: allegro in attesa


The transit of the Sun, Mars and Mercury in the Eleventh ouse makes you charismatic and charming. You have an iron grip that Margaret Thatcher would be jealous of, but nevertheless you can endear with grace, class and elegance. You are preparing to receive a gift that the heavens have waiting — in just over a month, you will ascend to the highest of all zodiac positions.

TEMPO: alla riscossa


With all these planets in the Fourth House and the return of Saturn to Scorpio, there may be some anxiety associated with your family, finances or house which may affect your mood. They are last ditch efforts of fears that have already been addressed and metabolized. Soon they will vanish, leaving no "hangover."

TEMPO: avanti così


The return of Saturn in your sign brings a call to commitment and responsibility, but you'll be in good shape. Mars, the Sun and Mercury are in a trine that makes you aggressive and willing to take the bull by the horns. You will face your commitments head on because now you know what you're worth and that whatever challenge you face will only make you stronger.

TEMPO: andantino in crescita


The sky becomes gradually more relaxed as more and more planets are leaving Gemini's opposition. There are many commitments and the effort is great, but at least there is no longer the sense of pressure that weighed you down for most of June. Take advantage of every opportunity to travel because new things will rejuvenate you, and under this sky luck can come via travel — even for your heart.

TEMPO: lost in translation


This week could show the most difficult and arduous side of things. Do not be put down from this B-side due to the many transits in opposition. Your sky contains an important promise of recovery that will last a whole year: just wait one more month, one last struggle.

TEMPO: prima dell'alba


With Saturn in quadrature and Venus and Jupiter connected in opposition, this is an exhausting sky — no doubt about it — especially for those in their 20s and 30s. But put it this way: with a sky burdened by Saturn's quadrature, we have shared good or bad since the end of 2012. From September, these claws definitely leave you in peace, opening the door to the most beautiful sky for many years to come. It pays to bite the bullet.

TEMPO: manca poco


The sky in your sign registers improvements week after week. After the Sun and Mars, Mercury is now also sitting on a beautiful trine. Creativity is flying high, but the desire to feel good is dominating the sky, and sweep away all obstacles from your path to this well-deserved renovation of well-being. Make good use of this beautiful sky, and if you don't like something speak out: call a spade a spade.

Jehovah's Witnesses Translate The Bible In Indigenous Language — Is This Colonialism?

The Jehovah's Witnesses in Chile have launched a Bible version translated into the native Mapudungun language, evidently indifferent to the concerns of a nation striving to save its identity from the Western cultural juggernaut.

A Mapuche family awaits for Chilean President Gabriel Boric to arrive at the traditional Te Deum in the Cathedral of Santiago, on Chile's Independence Day.

Claudia Andrade

NEUQUÉN — The Bible can now be read in Mapuzugun, the language of the Mapuche, an ancestral nation living across Chile and Argentina. It took the Chilean branch of the Jehovah's Witnesses, a latter-day Protestant church often associated with door-to-door proselytizing and cold calling, three years to translate it into "21st-century Mapuzugun".

The church's Mapuche members in Chile welcomed the book when it was launched in Santiago last June, but some of their brethren see it rather as a cultural imposition. The Mapuche were historically a fighting nation, and fiercely resisted both the Spanish conquerors and subsequent waves of European settlers. They are still fighting for land rights in Chile.

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.
