Horoscope♉: 02/03/2020


Your current love interest could be experiencing some family problems, Taurus. Therefore, don’t expect too much scintillating conversation this evening. Your partner may seem preoccupied and not be in the best of moods. Rest assured that this has nothing to do with you. Don’t let your insecurities get the best of you. Don’t demand an explanation.

This is tactful and will certainly be appreciated.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Li Ch’un

Li Ch’un is Chinese for “spring is here.” This is one of 24 days in the Chinese calendar marking a change of season.

He had some success testing his designs on dummies, but he had no evidence that his parachute would work with a real person when he jumped from the Eiffel Tower before a crowd of spectators and reporters.
