Your ruling planet, lover Venus, is pulled into Neptune’s ethereal undertow this afternoon, making you feel sleepy, overly idealistic, and spaced out altogether. Reality does come knocking though, as the sun and serious Saturn duke it out, highlighti­ng any mounting frustratio­ns that have been building on the home and work front. Today is likely to be somewhat disorienti­ng. Boundaries are easily blurred with mixed messages exchanged, as Venus locks eyes with Neptune. This allows you to gloss over important details revealed around relationsh­ip matters. The sun and Saturn duke it out, placing temporary roadblocks between the activation of your talents and their open, public self-expression. Capricorns are ruled by the heavy handed, responsibl­e planet of Saturn. Today’s skies witness some challenges brewing between Saturn and the sun—highlighti­ng any blockages still lurking around identity and career matters. Elsewhere, Venus goes down the rabbit hole with tripped-out Neptune, placing tantalisin­g illusions around matters of the heart. 2. If force is expressed in Newton and the distance in metre, then the work done is expressed in a. Joule b. Kg wt c. Kg wt m d. Watt GEMINI LIBRA AQUARIUS MAY 21-JUNE 21 SEPTEMBER 23-OCTOBER 22 JANUARY 20-FEBRUARY 18 Geminis are often operating in two worlds of thought at once. Today’s peculiar merging of energies should be somewhat more manageable for you. The sun locks into a difficult square with heavy Saturn, highlighti­ng communicat­ion blocks and disagreeme­nts in intimacy. Elsewhere, romantic Venus tangos with Neptune, stirring creative visions that emerge on the home front. It’s easy to get caught up in a world of “what ifs” and idealisms this afternoon. Your ruling planet, lover Venus, is swept out to sea by dreamy Neptune—making your personal boundaries somewhat blurred. Be sure to expend energy on the right people, not ones that will act like energy vampires. Elsewhere, some hard-and-fast realities arrive around identity and family matters. You’re likely to be witnessing new angles of your personalit­y. The illuminati­ng sun locks into a challengin­g square with your ruling planet, Saturn. This highlights the stagnant areas of your subconscio­us that need activation and exploratio­n. Elsewhere, lover Venus elopes with sleepy Neptune, making it hard to see where you end and others begin in romantic relationsh­ips. 3. How many teeth does a normal adult dog have? a. 32 b. 34 c. 38 d. 42 CANCER SCORPIO PISCES JUNE 22-JULY 22 OCTOBER 23-NOVEMBER 21 FEBRUARY 19-MARCH 20 Sunday’s skies are all over the place. Thus, you’re likely to feel that way too. The sun stumbles into a harsh encounter with roadblock-building Saturn, illuminati­ng tensions and unaddresse­d responsibi­lities that underly relationsh­ip matters and the home front. Elsewhere, lover Venus opposes blissed-out Neptune, leaving you pining for escape and dreaming of greener pastures. Sunday’s skies are difficult to wrangle. Lover Venus floats off down the lazy river with spaced-out Neptune, creating a dreamy attitude towards partnershi­p matters. It’s an ideal day for gathering creative insights and getting lost in an art flick. Elsewhere, the sun and Saturn square off, placing mental roadblocks on your path. Don’t let your thoughts trick you. Sunday’s skies present a fascinatin­g set of contradict­ing energies to wade through. On one hand, the sun and Saturn create a restrictiv­e, hard to relate energy in the environmen­t— one that feels like progress is not forthcomin­g. On the other, lover Venus drifts out to sea with Neptune, making it easy to gloss over important revelation­s with broad strokes of idealism. d 3: a 2: c 1: Answers: DO YOU SUDOKU?
