This week begins with a new moon in Aries and, for as long as we want to believe it, everything is possible. The Aries new moon is a bonfire bash, with Mercury, Chiron, the Sun, and Venus all under the constellation of the ram. There’s something irreverent and unstoppable in the air, something teenage, something earnest, something that believes in a thing called love. With Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini, people are very likely to say what they mean and do what they say. While no one is guaranteed to like the results, they are likely to hear something along the lines of “don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Just think about Aries Lil Nas X responding to “Montero” haters with the reasoning, “Y'all love saying we going to hell but get upset when I actually go there lmao.”
With Pluto squaring Venus and Neptune squaring Mars, it’s important to remember that just because we can say something, just because we want something now, doesn’t mean we should go for it. Aries is great at shooting their shot, but isn’t always prepared for what comes after the game is won. Set your sights a little farther in preparation for the week ahead so that when temptation knocks, you’ll have something to measure it against.
Like what you see? How about some more R29 goodness, right here?
Roberto De Zerbi dice addio al Sassuolo. Il tecnico dei neroverdi ha confermato, dopo la vittoria in casa del Parma per 3-1, che andrà a via a fine stagione. "Prima della partita contro il Genoa ho parlato con la società e con i giocatori e ho comunicato loro che ho deciso di andare via. È una scelta soffertissima perché non sono contento, lo faccio prevalentemente con il cervello perché non penso di poter io dare di più a questa squadra", ha detto De Zerbi ai microfoni di Sky Sport. "Penso che abbiamo toccato il massimo -ha aggiunto- e magari se verrà un allenatore con la stessa squadra potrà fare meglio, non è detto che si faccia solo peggio. Ma dopo 3 anni di mia gestione martellante, essendo sempre esigente al massimo, parlando anche con la società, perché rimarrò sempre riconoscente, anche nei confronti dei giocatori...sono un professionista e devo portare risultati. Credo che abbiamo toccato l’apice sotto tutti i punti di vista, oggi entrare tra le prime 7 vuol dire scavalcare le corazzate, per due anni stare all’ottavo posto in questo modo...di più non penso che avrei potuto dare a questa squadra". Sul suo futuro, De Zerbi si è limitato a dire: "Ho iniziato a considerare altre squadre nel momento in cui ho fatto questa valutazione".
Having three U.S. Formula One races a year might be too many but alternating Austin with Indianapolis could be a good way forward, according to McLaren boss Zak Brown. The country currently has one race, at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, but Miami is due to debut next year as a fixture in what is a key growth market for the Liberty Media-owned sport. There has been talk of further expansion, with a new following attracted by the Netflix 'Drive to Survive' documentary series.

Atletico Madrid took a giant step towards the La Liga title in dramatic circumstances by fighting their way back to beat Osasuna 2-1 at home on Sunday thanks to a late strike from Luis Suarez. Atletico dominated the game and hit the woodwork twice in the first half before having two goals ruled out for offside but fell behind in the 76th minute when a bullet header from Ante Budimir crossed the line before Jan Oblak could punch it away. Atletico hit back with an emphatic finish from substitute Renan Lodi in the 82nd minute while top scorer Suarez completed the comeback by firing home from inside the area in the 88th.
BILBAO, Spain (Reuters) -Real Madrid ensured the La Liga title race will go down to the final weekend as they beat Athletic Bilbao 1-0 at San Mames on Sunday thanks to a second-half goal from defender Nacho Fernandez. The result sees second-placed Real move onto 81 points, two behind city rivals Atletico Madrid, who beat Osasuna 2-1 on Sunday thanks to two late goals. In a first half shorn of clear-cut chances, Real were adamant they should have had a penalty when Alvaro Odriozola's cross hit Jon Morcillo's arm, however referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz waved away the protests.
A centuries-old battle over how to pronounce a river name was decided by a game of croquet on Sunday. The River Nene originates in Northamptonshire and runs for 100 miles through Cambridgeshire and Norfolk before flowing into The Wash. But for generations there has been controversy over the way it is pronounced – locals in Northampton say "Nen" while 40 miles away in Peterborough they say "Neen". When a long-awaited local croquet derby was planned, the two sides decided to up the stakes by making it a decider on the pronunciation. Northampton was the first side to win five games in Sunday’s contest and claimed the right to call the disputed river the "Nen" with a decisive 7-2 victory in a four-hour contest. Paul Hetherington, 56, Peterborough club secretary, said: "The dispute has been going on a long, long time, it must be centuries-old. "I've always been interested in the pronunciation because the towns are only 40 miles apart and we are just downstream of Northampton. "I was joking about it with the Northampton club when I thought it would be a good idea to have a game to settle once and for all the name of the river." The origin of the Nene – the UK's 10th longest river – is unknown but its name has changed over the years; it has been called “Nenn” or “Nyn” during the course of history. Paul Chard, 61, chairman of Northampton Croquet Club, said: "It is quite odd why there's a difference. "I looked on Wikipedia and they pronounced it the 'Nenny' but no one calls it that. "I know that in villages in the middle of us like Oundle and Thrapston one person at one end of the village will say 'Nen' and a person at the other end will say 'Neen'. "I don't think anyone knows why. "With Peterborough and Northampton deeply divided north and south of the river you can sometimes hear people who live in the middle oscillating between the two pronunciations. "When I moved here 20 years ago I picked up what local people said to me and it wasn't until I played with people like Paul that I heard the other pronunciation.” Despite being so close, the two towns play in different croquet leagues and rarely meet for a derby. It was therefore decided that such a momentous tie should carry a significant prize for the winning team. The five-person mixed ability teams played nine games, three of the longer-form association croquet and six of the shorter version of golf croquet. The losing team agreed that their town will pronounce the river's name in the winning team's way in all correspondence and public interviews. However, they have plans to make it an annual tie – so the pronunciation could shift on a yearly basis.
Monaco Grand Prix winner Daniel Ricciardo is revved up for the return of Formula One's glamour race this week but fears an 'empty' feeling compared to previous years. The McLaren driver, a Monaco resident like many of his racing rivals, won in the Mediterranean principality with Red Bull in 2018.
