m Fro Ed... the Welcome everyone to the October edition of The Sentinella Axarquia Edition. Summer has now passed — far too quickly for my liking! — and it seems like a distant memory. The kids are all back at school, the streets are emptier, parking is easy again, the mornings are cooler and wait for it... Halloween is just around the corner! Before I continue, I must comment on Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, watched by millions around the world. She reigned for 70 years, which is a unique milestone in itself, let alone living until the grand age of 96 — still working until two days before her death. She devoted her entire life to her country and the Commonwealth. She was a truly amazing person and thoroughly deserved the magnificent send-off she was given… I suspect many a tear was shed in several countries. RIP Your Majesty. So on to more cheerful things. October is a great month; the weather becomes much more tolerable as although it´s starting to get a little chilly in the mornings and again, once the sun sets, it`s still beautiful enough to spend the day on the beach, sunbathe, take a boat trip, horse ride, go for a walk, ride a bike and enjoy alfresco dining — everything was unbearable to enjoy properly during the height of the summer months. There are still lots of events happening in October in the lovely Axarquia area, two Oktoberfest´s, one in Algarrobo Costa and the other in Torre del Mar, sadly both are on the same days, the 8th & 9th October. If art is more your thing, for the sixth consecutive year the Art Route of Frigiliana takes place in one of the most beautiful villages in Spain. If you have not ventured there before, then now is the perfect opportunity. Walk the streets and discover 24 locations where you will meet 48 participating artists from 12 different nationalities. You will come across many different styles of art, including paintings,

All Trussed up A woman called Liz Trussell, who appears to have nabbed the Twitter handle @LizTruss before the new Conservative leader, has been sending cheeky replies to people who think she's Britain's new prime minister. The Swedish prime minister was one who messaged the wrong Liz. Magdalena Andersson swiftly deleted her post, but not before Ms Trussell expressed a willingness to meet. She even suggested the Scandinavian leader should bring a delicacy from her home nation, and wrote: ‘Looking forward to a visit soon! Get the meatballs ready!’ What a cheek Coventry police have released a wanted appeal with a difference, as one of the thieves has not shown his face in CCTV footage. Instead, officers are hoping he might be identified by a different aspect of his appearance – due to his ‘bare-faced cheek’. They shared CCTV footage of two men pinching tools from a nearby van, as part of a spate of similar incidents in Coventry. As one of them gets to work stealing the items worth around £600 from a vehicle after smashing its window, the other decided to moon witnesses from his getaway car. The thieves are thought to be linked to a wider group that has targeted more than 40 tradespeople across Coventry in recent weeks using vehicles on cloned registration plates.

Coventry Police Detective Inspector Stew Lewis said of the mooning thief: ‘We’ve had a bit of fun with the video, but these offences are no laughing matter. These brazen thieves have stolen tools worth thousands of pounds; tradespeople have been left out of pocket and badly inconvenienced. ‘They’ve also brandished crowbars and metal batons during some of the thefts and we’re concerned they may be prepared to use violence.’

Strange News (Continued) Human sacrifice? A terrified festival-goer said he was being offered as a human sacrifice to Mother Earth after he woke up trapped in a coffin following a drinking binge. Víctor Hugo Mica Alvarez, 30, smashed his way out of the casket in Achacachi, which is about 50 miles from where he passed out in the city of El Alto, Bolivia. He’d been drinking heavily the night before, at the opening of the Mother Earth festival – where indigenous people offer everything from live animals and sheep foetuses to sweets and coca leaves for the goddess, who they believe ‘opens her mouth’ for offerings in August.

Victor claims he was among the human sacrifices some fear are still offered in ancient-style rituals to satisfy her. While covered in mud and concrete after his apparent escape, he told local media: ‘Last night was the pre-entry of the festival, we went dancing. And afterwards I don’t remember. Thankfully, I was able to break a pane of glass in the coffin and was able to get out.’

Beer Beer contains female hormones! Yes, that's right, FEMALE hormones! Last month, Montreal University and scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption.

3. Gained weight. 4. Talked excessively without making sense. 5. Became overly emotional 6. Couldn't drive. 7. Failed to think rationally, and, 8. Had to sit down while urinating.

The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain Phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women. To test the theory, 100 men each drank 8 glasses of beer within a one (1) hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects, yes, 100% of all these men:1. Argued over nothing. 2. Refused to apologise when obviously wrong.

Property Tax For Non-Resident Homeowners In Spain - Modelo 210 Non-resident property tax, known as Modelo 210, needs to be paid annually by non-resident property owners in Spain. You are a non-resident if you do not have residencia in Spain or if you live for more than 183 days outside of Spain. All nationalities need to pay the tax – both EU and non-EU residents. This tax needs to be paid each year you own the property and must be paid by 31 December the following year. For example, the Modelo 210 property tax for 2021 needs to be paid on or before 31 December 2022. The tax is payable by each owner of the property - so if there are two owners of the property each owner must pay 50% of the tax due. The amount due is calculated based upon a percentage of the Catastral value of your property - there are different rates for EU and non-EU residents. It still needs to be paid even if you do not receive rental income from your Spanish property. Non-resident property owners in Spain

usually fall into one of three categories: • Fully aware of the tax and pay it on time each year - they need to ask themselves if they are receiving value for money and use the easiest, least effort service. • Aware of the tax but have never quite got around to paying it – maybe it is time to sort it out in an affordable and uncomplicated way. • Unaware of the need to pay this tax – these newcomers to the tax should look for an inexpensive, and simple route to start paying. Everyone should look to find the most cost-effective and stress-free route to paying this tax, whether it be by finding a cheaper alternative for this year’s payment or getting help to sort out previously missed payments. Spanish Homeowner Tax is your local solution, and they are determined to bring their inexpensive and excellent customer service solution to you. See main advert below

Mice Balls This is a real memo sent out by a computer company to its employees. It went to all field engineers about a computer peripheral problem. The engineers literally rolled on the floor as they read; especially the last couple of sentences Re: Replacement of Mouse Balls. If a mouse fails to operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement. Mouse balls are now available as FRU (Field Replacement Units). Because of the delicate nature of this procedure, replacement of mouse balls should only be attempted by properly trained personnel. Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the underside of the mouse. Domestic balls will be larger and harder than foreign balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending upon the

manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop off method. Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist off method. Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive. However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge. Upon completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately. It is recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for maintaining optimum customer satisfaction. Any customer missing his balls should contact the local personnel in charge of removing and replacing these necessary items. Please keep in mind that a customer without properly working balls is an unhappy customer.

AUTOMATIC LICENCE EXPIRY AFTER 30 APRIL 2022 As of December 31st 2020, the UK ceased to belong to the European Union, and regulations that allowed driving in Spain, with a British driving licence, ceased to be applicable. UK issued driving licenses were only authorised to drive in Spain until April 30th 2022, and are now not valid. All existing agreements on highway regulations that protect the Member States of the European Union have ceased to be valid and applicable. However, those British drivers who do not have their main residence in Spain and travel for periods of less than six months (tourist type), may continue to drive in Spain, during that period, with their original permit.

917 002 006 ENGLISH FOR SPANISH LICENCE SWAP Residents with a British driving licence, had until December 31st 2020 to swap and redeem theirs for a Spanish licence.

How The Human Mind Works See the picture below; we will analyse what it represents to some groups of people...

For older men - it is a respectable woman with a nice bum crossing the street. The perverts - will imagine her as a naked woman. The wise men - will ponder the presence of mind of the photographer in the face of such beauty and gratitude that it was shared with humanity. For half of the women - this is an ordinary woman who should not have left home dressed that way. The other half - is wondering where she bought that blouse. The wise women - imagine the misery that this will be at 50.

For young men - it’s a nice bum. Only the most observant will define this as a bum crossing the street. The really observant will see the thong.

Children, the curious, and monks - will probably notice a dog driving the taxi.. Don’t be alarmed, I didn’t see the dog either.

Osteopathia Händel - Torre del Mar We would like to welcome Agnes and Jörg Hände to the Sentinella Magazine. Agnes brings to Torre del Mar 30 years of experience in a wide range of treatments including; osteopathy, physiotherapy, joint treatments, neurological treatments, helping MS, Parkinson and stroke patients and much more...

As from 2nd June 2022 Agnes and Jörg opened their new physiotherapy practice in Torre del Mar, Calle Levante, 29, located in the road in front of the ´blue parking´ car parks at the end of El Copo. We spoke to Agnes to find out how they ended up in the wonderful Torre del Mar. “We are originally from the North of Germany, it was far too cold and grey for us there so my husband Jörg and I moved back to Spain. We searched for a long time and after weighing up all of our options, we decided on the most beautiful place on the Costa del Sol: Torre del Mar.” “30 years ago I completed my training as a physiotherapist in Germany. After that, I went on to qualify as a manual therapist and chiropractor. I soon began to realise that there are many people with jaw problems, which led me to further training in CMD (Cranio-Mandibular Dysfunction), as well as in organic and cranio-sacral parts of the body. I decided to combine all these areas and train in oesteopathy. And in order to be able to work freely without a doctor’s prescription, I then completed the further training as a physiotherapeutic non-medical practitioner.” “My husband realised he could work better in Spain as a diving instructor, so in 1999 we went to Catalonia. We worked in Empuriabrava near Roses until 2012. Between us we speak four languages, Spanish, English, German and French and

working in four languages is a lot of fun and a great challenge. Sadly, we had to move back to Germany for family reasons, immediately I opened my own practice there and, together with Jörg on reception, ran it until 2020. However, anyone who has already experienced the Spanish warmth and friendliness starts to miss Spain and, of course, the climate. After returning to Spain and with one year of renovation work now finished, our practice is ready in our own house. We look forward to meeting you. Kind regards from Agnes and Jörg Hände See main advert on page 6

Halloween Facts Do you celebrate October 31st? Here are some fearfully fascinating Halloween facts to impress fellow spirits Halloween was brought to North America by immigrants from Europe who would celebrate the harvest around a bonfire, share ghost stories, sing, dance and tell fortunes.

Jack-o-lanterns originated in Ireland where people placed candles in hollowed-out turnips to keep away spirits and ghosts on the Samhain holiday.

Pumpkins originated in Central America. When Europeans arrived in the New World, they found pumpkins plentiful and used in cooking by Native Americans. They took seeds back to Europe where they quickly became popular.

Orange and black are Halloween colours because orange is associated with the Fall harvest and black is associated with darkness and death Samhainophobia is an intense fear of Halloween.

& t i Fru Factspkin Veg Pum Pumpkins are fruits, a type of squash that includes cucumbers, squashes and melons. Pumpkins are native to North America and have been domestically grown there for five thousand years. In 1584, after French explorer Jacques Cartier explored the Saint Lawrence region of North America, he reported finding "gros melons" (large melons). The name was translated into English as "pompions," which has since evolved into the modern "pumpkin."

The world’s largest pumpkin pie was made in New Bremen. It measured 20 feet in diameter and weighed 3,699 pounds! Pumpkins are members of the vine crops family called cucurbits. They are easy to grow! In early colonial times, pumpkins were used as an ingredient for the crust of pies, not the filling.

Pumpkins are low in calories, fat, and sodium and high in fibre. They are good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, potassium, protein, and iron. Eating pumpkin is good for the heart. The fibre, potassium, and vitamin C content in pumpkins all support a healthy heart.

Pumpkins were once recommended for removing freckles and curing snake bites. Pumpkins range in size from less than a pound to over 1,000 pounds. Pumpkins are 90 per cent water. Eighty percent of the pumpkin supply in the United States is available in October.

The largest pumpkin ever grown was 1,226kg (2,702lb 13.9oz) by Stefano Cutrupi from Tuscany, Italy.

Colonists sliced off pumpkin tips; removed seeds and filled the insides with milk, spices and honey. This was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie.

Pumpkins require a long hot growing season and loads of compost, manure and water.

Native Americans flattened strips of pumpkins, dried them and made mats.

The Real Man The top things that make you feel like a real man… Opening jars – She’s struggling. You take if from her hands, open it effortlessly and pretend she loosened it for you. She didn’t. Jars are men’s work. Calling someone ‘Son’ – Especially policemen, but even saying it to kids makes you the man. Sharpening a pencil with a Stanley Blade – Blunt is it? Hand it here love. NO I don’t need a sharpener, you think I can’t whittle. Going to the tip – A manly act which involves driving, lifting and – as you thrillingly drop your rubbish into another huge pile of rubbish – noisy destruction. Drinking up – Specifically rising from the table, slinging your coat on and downing two

thirds of a pint in one fluid movement. Then nodding towards the door saying, ‘Lets go’ and striding out while everyone else struggles to keep up with you. Having a scar – Ideally it’ll be a facial knife wound, but even an iron burn on the wrist is good. “Oooh, did it hurt?” “Nah” Carving the roast – And saying “are you a leg man or a breast man” to the blokes and “do you want stuffing” to the women. Congratulations, you are now your dad. Arriving in the pub late and everyone cheers you – dDesn’t mean you’re popular, it just means your mates are pissed. However, the rest of the pub doesn’t know that. Parallel parking – Bosh, straight in first time! Winking – Turns women to putty. Doesn’t it?

Director: Baz Luhrmann Cast: Austin Butler (Elvis), Helen Thomson (Gladys Presley), Tom Hanks (Col Tom Parker), Olivia DeJonge(PriscillaPresley), Richard Roxburgh (Vernon Presley). Cert: PG13 Running time: 2hr 13mins Whether you’re normally a fan of musical films or not, the recently released biopic of the legend known as The King takes the genre to a whole new level. As well as the obligatory songs, there are Oscar-worthy acting performances from Austin Butler as Elvis himself, and movie legend Tom Hanks who brings the singer’s

lifelong agent and promoter Colonel Tom Parker to life with uncanny insight. Butler might not look like the image of Elvis, but within a few minutes he is totally believable in the role and in the film, Butler’s voice was blended with the real Presley’s for many of the songs. Hanks brings a whole new dimension to the usual perception of Col Parker, who not only ruled The King’s career, but also his life. “Without me there would be no Elvis Presley,” he maintained. Parker — in actual fact a Dutch-born showman and hustler called Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk — cast himself as Presley’s closest confidant and was rewarded with 50% of the megastar’s profits whilst wielding 100% control. This is an enthralling, entertaining, nostalgic, beautifully acted and revealing film — one definitely not to be missed. Star Rating: *****/*****

Police Officers Question: How do you tell the difference between a UK Police Officer, an Australian Police Officer and an American Police Officer? Answer: Pose the following question: "You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a firearm and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?" UK Police Officer’s Answer: Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! - Does the man look poor or oppressed? - Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

- Could we run away? - What does my wife think? - What about the kids? - Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? - What does the law say about this situation? - Does the firearm have appropriate safety built into it? - Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? - Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?

Police Officers (Continued) - If I raise my gun and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed when he falls over running away, knocks his head and kills himself? - If I shoot him, and lose the court case does he have the opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and I will lose my family home? Australian Officer’s Answer: BANG!

-Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? - If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? - Should I call 9-9-9? - Why is this street so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behaviour.

American Officer’s Answer: BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!

Decotta Law I am a British resident and I own Spanish property. Should I gift it to my children during my lifetime? If you gift Spanish property to your children there are various things that one needs to think about. What tax you will pay tends to be at the top of one´s list. As a Spanish non-tax resident, regardless of whether you sell or gift your property, you will need to account for 19% Spanish Capital Gains tax (CGT). A capital gain is calculated by taking the sale price and deducting the purchase price and related fees and costs. In addition to the 19% CGT, one needs to pay plusvalía. Plusvalía is essentially a municipal CGT.

One would not have to pay any lifetime inheritance tax in the UK and this would be what is referred to as a Potentially Exempt Transfer (PET). Provided that you live for seven years after the gift, it would not fall into your estate for the purposes of calculating UK IHT. UK IHT at death, above applicable exemptions, is charged at 40% and 36%. Each individual's circumstances are different. For a confidential consultation tailored to your situation please contact Sam Baker, English solicitor at De Cotta Telephone 952 527 014 See main advert below

If you gift your property during your lifetime, you will also need to account for lifetime inheritance tax (IHT) in Spain, often referred to as a “donación” in Spanish. This is generally very low in Andalusia as there is a 99% exemption when gifting to children. There is a series of formalities to follow which we can help with. This is only part of the picture for British residents, in that British residents need to also consider their potential obligations and tax liabilities in the UK. UK CGT is ordinarily charged at either 18% or 28% on second residential property, depending on whether the person is a basic or a higher rate income taxpayer. An individual will normally be given credit for the Capital Gains tax paid in Spain to avoid double taxation.

Choosing A Perfect Pumpkin To Carve Tips on how to select your pumpkin for the night of 31st October

that is vertical or tilted upward. • Is free of soft spots or breaks in the skin.

First things first, you have to spend some time in the local supermarket or greengrocers, finding the perfect candidate to carve. Start the selection process by deciding on the shape and colour: • Tall thin shapes are ideal for funny faces and whimsical expressions. • Round shapes are great for happy faces – and scary ones, too. • Oddly shaped pumpkins are perfect for creating unique characters. • Want something different? Consider a white pumpkin. Even when unlit, white pumpkins seem to glow as the daylight fades. Before making your final selection, make sure your pumpkin: • Has a broad, gently curved face for carving

• Sits well on the ground and is stable. • Includes a bit of stem, especially if you will be removing the seeds through the top. Although faces are the most beloved patterns for pumpkins, don't limit your thinking! Patterns, shapes, and even letters can be used to create one-of-a-kind treasures. Or consider using stickers, glitter, or paint to add even more decoration to your cutout design

Canillas De Aceituno Why Canillas de Aceituno is THE place to invest around these parts now Andalusia is no longer just a Summer holiday on the beach for Europe. Rural tourism is flourishing and tiny, whitewashed villages now compete alongside beach resorts in popularity as they never could have done before. One such village is Canillas de Aceituno, 30 minutes inland from the coast. Apart from the fact that it is picturesque, full of colour, light and charm, with good facilities and amazing views, this beautiful little place now has “El Saltillo”, a mountain walk running above the village to nearby Sedella. The swinging bridge over a deep gorge is its main attraction, and the walk is on the way to rivalling the top tourist attraction in Andalusia –the “Caminito del Rey” in El Chorro. Taking in nature and the magnificence of the mountains, the walk has put Canillas on the map, as enthusiastic groups of walkers and hikers, couples and young families, head to the hills to discover it.

As a result of its growing popularity, Canillas is becoming a hot-spot for property hunters and a good place for small investors, as the demand for accommodation grows. One example is our clients and good friends Tracey and Allan, just nearing completion of the renovation of their stunning little B&B in the heart of the village, ‘La ViejaBotica’, in the old village pharmacy. Exciting times lie ahead for this couple, as they prepare to open their doors and let in the tourists! There is still plenty on offer at a reasonable price in the village, including bargains to be had, restored and let out, providing a realistic return on investment. The village has some excellent builders, as well as experienced renovators such as Tracey and Allan, making it an even easier little project to take on and instantly make friends. So, if you are looking for somewhere to invest a little capital in this part of the world, talk to us for a selection of properties and projects in Canillas de Aceituno.

Strictly business Motsi Mabuse has claimed there are no strong bonds between the Strictly Come Dancing judges, insisting the panel gets the job done but is not friendly outside of work. The twinkle-toed star, 41, who has been a judge on the BBC ballroom dance contest since 2019, says she and Anton Du Beke, 56, Craig Revel Horwood, 57, and head judge Shirley Ballas, 62, may wish each other well on special occasions but otherwise they all prefer spending time apart at home. When asked if they are 'pals' and spend time together outside of work, she told The Telegraph: 'No. None of that. There are some moments where you write “Happy birthday” or something like that.' Describing their relationship as 'professional’, she added: ‘In Germany, we’ve had the same judges for 10 years and there’s a basis of friendship. In the UK, it’s different. 'There’s so much pressure – it’s prime time, so you get in, you do the job and everybody just wants to go home,' she explained.

B for Bully? Mel C has claimed that her Spice Girls bandmate Mel B 'bullied' her when the band were at the height of their fame in the nineties. The performer, also known as Sporty Spice, 48, is about to release her first autobiography Who I Am: My Story, and she has recalled some of the more heated moments she experienced with the legendary pop group. Singer Mel said she and Scary Spice would get into spats when they were on the road, recounting the moment they shared some angry words and were pulled apart by Geri Horner during a work trip to Los Angeles. Mel C explained to The Sunday Times: 'We’d been on a night out and come back to the bar. We were on the port, and Geri, trying to keep the peace and keep us apart, ended up getting clocked in the face.' Mel insists all members of the band have remained close, however. ‘We five know that individually we would not have achieved what we did together and we are so grateful to each other for that,' she told the Daily Mail. ‘We don’t fight any more — we give each other the space that we need.’

'I really felt like my dad was just trying to kill me and I really hope he burns in hell,' she declared at the end of a two-minute audio clip. Spears, 40, also vented her frustrations with her sons as they continue to avoid her. Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, have not seen their mother for nearly six months now. Their father Kevin Federline said it has been difficult for them since a judge decided to end her 13-year conservatorship. Since then, Spears has taken advantage of her newfound freedom by posting almost nude selfies to Instagram, even though she knows it embarrasses her sons. She maintains it “empowers” her. In the clip, the superstar, 40, said that she has lost her purpose now that she doesn't see them.' Since they’ve been gone, a huge part of me has died,' she said. She also explained that her reason for posting the recording was that her therapist is only available ‘usually once a week’ and it's important for her to ‘feel like I can share.’

Knockout blow Former professional boxer Chris Eubank, 56, suffered an embarrassing mishap as he ran over his designer luggage while driving his 2.6 tonne Rolls Royce Phantom convertible in London recently.

The former professional boxer, 56, had pulled out of his parking space during an outing in West London when he made the unlucky discovery that his cream holdall was stuck beneath the wheels of the luxury motor. In a bid to free it, Chris ran over the bag a second time before a passer-by came to the rescue to help free it from behind the front wheel. The good Samaritan lay on the floor and poked around until he retrieved the crumpled Longchamp bag which was covered in black tyre marks. The helpful stranger appeared star-struck as he handed over the bag to a grateful Chris, who got out of his Rolls Royce to thank him. The middleweight champion, who retired from boxing in 1997, is known for his eccentric sense of style, often sporting tailored suits, jodhpurs, bowler hats and monocles.

They'd got ready, all dolled up, but just needed to put the dog out when the taxi arrives. However as the couple walked out of the house, the dog shoots back in the house. They don't want the dog shut in the house, so the wife goes out to the taxi while the husband goes upstairs to chase the dog out. The wife, not wanting it known that the house will be empty, explains to the taxi driver: 'He's just going upstairs to say good-night to my mother.' A few minutes later, the husband gets into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long' he says. 'Stupid bitch was hiding under the bed and I had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching and biting me as I hauled her arse downstairs and tossed her in the back yard! She better not s*** in the vegetable garden again!' The silence in the cab was deafening.

Jokes h a ha Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter. The man at the counter asked the older boy, 'Son, how old are you?' ‘Eight,' the boy replied. The man continued, 'Do you know what these are used for?' The boy replied, 'Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike.

I'm worried about the way things are going, but fortunately she just stuck it to one of his bum cheeks again. My relief was short-lived. Seeing the way things are going, the guy races over to me.

s e p o c s o Hor by Juanita Banana of Banana Moon Yoga Therapy, Studio, Travel & Retreats ARIES: March 21-April 20 With the Sun in opposition, you may experience difficulty in focusing this month Aries and some work-related stress. To combat both you could drop any distractions and practice some breath meditation TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Mercury and Venus are stimulating Tauris this month, so watch out for strong intellectual and sensual distractions mid-October. With Uranus also coming into play soon too expect the unexpected! GEMINI: May 22-June 21 While Jupiter and Saturn continue to aid your progress, an extra boost is given from Uranus. Don’t get frustrated if some things seem a little slow, better to change attitude towards this and all will work out to your best interests CANCER: June 22-July 22 Feeling a little at odds with yourself? Then settle to what is immediately in front of you and try not to agitate over things you can’t fix. You would benefit from balancing work and home-life with some outdoor activities LEO: July 23-August 23 Things have calmed down after last month meaning you can relax and go with the flow. If you remain calm and collected when faced with a predicted unexpected event, you’ll have a peaceful and enjoyable October VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Energy and power comes to you courtesy of Mars this month Virgo. It’s a great time to make a home, renovate, decorate, work out at the gym, outline projects, plan wild adventures and just do everything that previously waited for this energy boost

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 As the Sun makes a solar return to your sign, it brings support from Jupiter and Pluto, making you feel good, and ready to take on the world. You’ll be a bright, shining light amongst your friends and colleagues SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 October brings all round improvements to Scorpio, with Venus and Mercury supporting your sign. You will have grace and poise though maybe flirtatious and liberal. Enjoy fun and shared warmth with those close to you SAGITTARIUS: November 22 December 21 During October, the dynamics for Sagittarius are similar to last month, meaning your overall situation is remains good, upbeat and well organised. Avoid being over intense and to rush things – go slowly and success will be yours CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 Things are fairly quiet again in October for Capricorn. So slow down, avoid making a bigger than necessary deal of any issues and just do the things you personally feel to be important. Adventure awaits but not this month! AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 With Uranus giving you a high sense of freedom and liberty and Neptune a sense of connection to the universe, this is an excellent time to open up to new options and projects, or to travel adventurously. Enjoy! PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Whilst you have energy to tackle and do things, you very much need to stay focused and not stray too far from previously well-thought out plans. Stay close to home to avoid over-extending yourself!
