The Puente Nuevo is the newest and largest of three bridges that span the 120-metre-deep chasm that carries the Guadalevín River and divides the city of Ronda, in southern Spain. The architect was José Martin de Aldehuela, who died in Málaga in 1802. The chief builder was Juan Antonio Díaz Machuca. The construction of the newest bridge (the one that stands today) started in 1759 and took about 34 years to end. The bridge connects the older city with the newest part.

This small bronze Buddha is probably one of the earliest iconic representations of Shakyamuni from Gandhara. He sits in a yogic posture holding his right hand in abhaya mudra (a gesture of approachability); his unusual halo has serrations that indicate radiating light. His hairstyle, the form of his robes, and the treatment of the figure reflect stylistic contacts with the classical traditions of the West. This Buddha shows closer affinities to Roman sculpture than any other surviving Gandharan bronze.

Mercury is in Cancer and will go retrograde in a couple weeks. Now is a great opportunity to learn about history and your family lineage, especially considering you will likely want reliable friends and loved ones around come July 4th. If Mercury is fogging your brain too much, offset this by prioritizing Capricorn related activities such as brainstorming a new career focus or simply making an applied effort to read over any important terms of agreement more closely than you normally would.
