Following Sunday’s Full Moon in Libra, our last days of March and first days of April are bound to be contemplative ones. Whether our schedules are burdened by the necessary errands of a new season or strained against the emotional toll of a world that is in desperate need of a compassionate structural overhaul, we are very good at searching for meaning even when there’s barely time to search for details. The sign of Libra, especially, is good at brooding and can tend toward obsessive thoughts — especially if there’s even a glimmer of a chance that the act of thinking something all the way through (when has that ever happened?) will serve to bring down the sword of justice. It doesn’t help that Mercury still transiting Pisces can make those thoughts all the more murky and susceptive to wishful reasoning. Luckily, the Sun’s transit through Aries coupled with Venus in Aries is more than willing to push us past Brooding Town into Action City. With Gemini Mars forming an air trine to Aquarius Saturn and Saturn forming a trine to the Full Moon in Libra, the devil is in the details and more than willing to balance the accounts. The air trine work of Sunday’s Full Moon is mostly under the surface, with Mars positioned at 14°, Saturn at 11° and the Libra full moon at 8° but there’s no time like the equinox to remember the impact of work we can’t yet perceive.

"Per la prima volta il sindacato Anief sarà presente ai tavoli per il rinnovo contrattuale e abbiamo tante proposte da portare avanti. Le prime riguardano quelle di avere un salario minimo ancorato al costo della vita". Così, in un'intervista all'Adnkronos/Labitalia, Marcello Pacifico presidente Anief. "Non è possibile - sottolinea - che dopo il blocco avvenuto per dieci anni, avere ancora oggi degli stipendi lontani 5-6 punti anche con i nuovi aumenti dell'inflazione". "Dopo una vita spesa sul precariato - spiega - faremo una battaglia sulla parità di trattamento tra persone precarie e di ruolo, sia a livello giuridico che economico. Dal diritto alle ferie, ad esempio, al diritto degli scatti di mensilità". "Cercheremo poi - continua Pacifico - di rivedere i profili professionali, garantendo anche il rispetto delle norme sulla sicurezza dei lavoratori, ma anche il riconoscimento del burn out. Questo ci porterà anche a chiedere delle specifiche indennità, a cominciare da quelle con il test epidemiologico da Covid 19 proprio perché si tratta di un lavoro svolto in presenza che al pari delle altre categorie ha rischio elevato anche di tipo biologico. Poi bisogna riconoscere un'indennità di sede ad esempio per chi lavora a centinaia di chilometri lontano da casa. Tutti argomenti che riguardano di fatto la possibilità di verificare e valorizzare il personale della scuola non solo docente, ma anche amministrativo dell'università, della ricerca, delle accademie e dei conservatori".

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — The attack was brazen, streamed live on the internet: Men carrying big guns walked into a Holy Thursday church service, grabbed the pastor and three parishioners and led them away in full view of cameras. For Haitians, it was a fearsome emblem of a wave of kidnappings and deaths that has victimized even impoverished people already already stung by years of violence in the streets. One of the church abductees, Steven Jérôme, spent the first night in the hands of his captors sitting on a chair afraid to close his eyes.
