The Moon’s shift into steadfast Taurus is a sweet relief from recent pressures sapping our energy. Today should see the pace slow, requiring less effort to stay on course and allowing more time to enjoy life. Nevertheless, consistent work, even at a gentler pace, is rewarded.

Astrologer Marina of MarStars Astrology Insights believes today offers a fantastic opportunity to achieve significant results.

Marina said: “Today marks a Mars quintile with Saturn, an interesting planetary combination.

“Generally, Mars and Saturn are unfriendly with each other because they represent completely different energies.

“But we can achieve something great when these opposites are combined.

“This aspect helps us adapt to new circumstances – that is the nature of this quintile aspect.

“Usually it allows us to choose something and to make certain changes.

“These are today’s main topics; choices and changes.”

Mars and Saturn are also an interesting combination for achieving results.

Mars is a planet which usually forces or stimulates us to initiate action and sometimes take more risks than necessary.

Saturn, contrastingly, is a very stable planet, requiring us to consider matters before we take action and to be more patient and hard working.

We can achieve great things when we combine these energies in a positive and constructive way, especially in terms of business or activities requiring effort.

Marina said: “In one way or another we have to make decisions today to allow us to make the necessary changes.”

The transit Moon is today in Taurus, which is a sign of being stable and rounded.

So be more practical and patient in your approach of achieving concrete results.

The Sun in Sagittarius angles across to Uranus making its final visit to Aries, which will not occur again in our lifetime.

Whatever direction is calling you – follow it.

Mercury and Jupiter meet in Sagittarius today, so look out for themes around travel, foreign affairs and the Internet.

Today may mark the start of a long journey – if not in the literal sense, then certainly the metaphorical one.

Ottawa military family alleges bad faith eviction by Saudi Arabia’s top diplomat in Canada

An Ottawa military family alleges their former landlord — Saudi Arabia’s top diplomat in Canada — acted in bad faith when he gave them a notice of eviction, claiming he intended to move into their Vanier rental home with his own family.

The home is now listed for sale for $950,000, two months after Vivian and Tim Funk moved out with their two young children.

In documents filed with the Landlord and Tenant Board, the Funks detailed how their landlord, Sulaiman AlAqeel, acted to end their tenancy by allegedly pretending he was moving in himself. This was preceded by an attempt to market the house to new tenants for significantly more money when the Funks had not given notice indicating they would be leaving, the documents alleged. “The landlord’s representative,” according to the documents, allegedly told the Funks they needed to accept a $500 monthly rent increase and a new lease if they wanted to continue living in the rental property, which wouldn’t be legal under the Residential Tenancies Act.

Ottawa COVID-19 hospitalization data showing half of cases coming from community, not just long-term care

With local data showing 50 per cent of COVID-19 hospitalizations coming from the community, long-term care residents aren’t the only one vulnerable to severe illness from the virus, Ottawa’s Board of Health reports.

Despite the majority of deaths having happened in older adult age groups in long-term care homes, residents shouldn’t think institutions are the only settings that are vulnerable to outbreaks that lead to serious illness from the virus.

“[Ottawa Public Health] continues to expand our understanding of the types of settings and situations that have the most impact on COVID-19 transmission in our community and is seeking academic partners to better explore exposure risks as well as a broader assessment of the harms from different public health measures,” OPH outlined in its document, to be present at the Board of Health on Monday.

At the same time, however, OPH says it is working closely with partners on “processes to strengthen and streamline responses.” This includes weekly meetings across agencies to address issues and concerns to ensure a strong collaboration, ongoing communications with facilities, preventative visits and phone calls to review infection prevention and control.

In situations where OPH identified failings at an LTCH or concerns of compliance have been raised, OPH has been quick to issue letters of expectation that outline the deficiencies and timelines fo compliance.

It is unclear how many letters have been issued through both waves of the virus.

And while outbreaks in LTCH during wave two have recorded a higher number of LTCH outbreaks than in wave one, the overall morbidity and mortality has been lower. This means fewer cases, fewer deaths and a lower average duration of outbreaks.

OPH contributed this to building on lessons learned from early COVID-19 outbreaks in LTCH in Ottawa.
