Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


This tues­day is a great day to be with oth­ers and to work to­gether. You may be asked to step a bit be­yond your own work and help out if an­other co-worker is ab­sent. Ten­sions may be high be­cause of the lack of help to­day but you can get through the day with a smile on your face. You could be the chef at a fa­mous res­tau­rant or mak­ing cakes for a wed­ding. What­ever the case, tim­ing is im­por­tant and you will be able to help meet the sched­ule. Per­haps you have not felt re­warded for your hard work or some­one else has had con­trol of where you want to work. Your ef­forts and at­ti­tude will get you where you want to go. Big­ger and bet­ter is the theme when it comes to cre­ativ­ity, ro­mance and self­ex­pres­sion. Tak­ing safe chances ends in a pos­i­tive.


You have con­tact with many peo­ple to­day and are privy to stim­u­lat­ing in­for­ma­tion–pro­fes­sional and per­sonal. You have no trou­ble putting your feel­ings into words; in fact, you may have to ex­er­cise some con­trol over your tongue. As you gain in­for­ma­tion, you gain in­sight into the dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties you see. If you are in a po­si­tion to hire peo­ple you will be read­ing re­sumes as well as com­mu­ni­cat­ing per­son­ally with peo­ple. Take notes of each in­ter­view and then you can re­view the in­ter­view hon­estly. You keep busy to­day and you are ab­sorbed in your work. If you are a de­tec­tive, it won’t take you very long to line up all the clues by dates and come up with the right an­swer. You might find some­thing for your own in­vest­ment while shop­ping with a friend.


“do not con­fuse me with the facts,” is your motto now, as you tend to lose sight of the de­tails in fa­vor of see­ing the un­der­ly­ing con­nec­tions that link them to­gether. This can make the way you think and com­mu­ni­cate very in­spired and in­spir­ing, but it can also lead to con­fused de­ci­sion mak­ing and dif­fi­cul­ties in mak­ing your­self un­der­stood by oth­ers. Cir­cum­stances could dic­tate your tak­ing ac­tion–much can be ac­com­plished with your in­sight. A need to be the cen­ter of at­ten­tion takes hold and there is a crav­ing to give and to be ap­pre­ci­ated for your gifts. This can be an ex­pan­sive, cre­ative and even ro­man­tic phase–a time you will look back on with pride and fond­ness. You are able to en­joy and feel es­pe­cially kind to­ward a friend or loved one.


The good life and all that is fine and lux­u­ri­ous are what many of us try to achieve. You may have plans but you will find they will need ad­just­ing from time to time in or­der to see the end re­sult more clearly in your mind’s eye. To­day you will get some in­sight into one or more ad­just­ments to your fu­ture plans. They will be pos­i­tive as you be­gin to get a bet­ter per­spec­tive on your plans. In­vest­ments can be good, well-built fur­ni­ture that needs a new coat of var­nish or some slight re­pair. This fur­ni­ture could make a nice ad­di­tion to the fur­ni­ture in your home or it could make a good re­sale item. Some is­sue that needs to be brought to the at­ten­tion of the city coun­cil may be in dis­cus­sion around your house tonight; you have ideas.


There are good prac­ti­cal job-re­lated thoughts. You have the abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate with su­pe­ri­ors or de­scribe what you see. Oth­ers may want you to speak for them. You are ap­pre­ci­ated for your abil­ity to quickly step in and ac­com­plish what is needed. Ev­ery­thing may be pour­ing in at once and it’s all good news. Your ca­reer di­rec­tion gets some en­cour­age­ment and life’s prob­lems should find easy so­lu­tions. You may ben­e­fit from an older per­son or one in au­thor­ity. If you live by your­self, you might con­sider the com­pany of an an­i­mal or cre­ate some re­lax­ing space, per­haps for read­ing or just med­i­ta­tion. You could fill this area with a beau­ti­ful fish tank or per­haps plants with light­ing that you could change ac­cord­ing to mood.


Work and ca­reer should be a pri­mary fo­cus at this time. An op­por­tu­nity to make good de­ci­sions, and to make clear choices, is yours. You will pros­per by pur­su­ing your dreams of how life could be. Don’t be afraid to project your im­age and make those dreams real. Ideas of group co­op­er­a­tion could fur­ther your ca­reer. A group meet­ing may give you the op­por­tu­nity to speak up and show off your tal­ent to be ex­pres­sive and have good ideas. You are at your most prac­ti­cal and what hap­pens now may have a last­ing ef­fect on your life di­rec­tion. A change in fi­nan­cial sta­tus is pos­si­ble and can lead in un­ex­pected di­rec­tions. There are new spend­ing pat­terns, per­haps fo­cused on high-tech in­ter­ests. You need ex­tra sleep and whole­some meals at this time.


Your work or ca­reer is in real har­mony with the rest of your life. You could gain from ob­serv­ing the more ex­pe­ri­enced as well as the young peo­ple to­day. Ex­pe­ri­ence com­bined with new vi­sion will mo­ti­vate you for­ward into new hori­zons. You will en­joy cre­at­ing new goals. Sug­ges­tions and pro­pos­als may be ac­cepted from the com­pany in which you work. Per­haps some mon­e­tary re­wards can be ex­pected as your pro­pos­als may save the com­pany much money. You will have some good op­por­tu­ni­ties to move for­ward in your ca­reer. Com­mu­nity prob­lems come to your at­ten­tion this af­ter­noon and changes here are pos­si­ble as well. This may in­volve trans­porta­tion sit­u­a­tions: school buses, city buses, park­ing, etc. Plan ahead and gather sup­port.


Emo­tional se­ri­ous­ness, a sober ori­en­ta­tion and a prac­ti­cal aware­ness of time man­age­ment are key­notes of your deep­est feel­ings. There is a ten­dency to be too strict with your­self at this time. You may in­sist that what­ever does not con­trib­ute to se­cu­rity and other long-term goals is triv­ial. Ob­tain­ing and ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion takes on more sig­nif­i­cance. Mak­ing de­ci­sions based on the facts will bring you much recog­ni­tion. Be pre­pared–this could be a busy day. The pos­i­tive re­sults will de­pend on your ac­tions. You at­tract money just now. You may have in­sights with re­gard to your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or life cir­cum­stances and now is a good time to dis­cuss any changes or ideas with your loved ones. Your loved ones see and value your unique qual­i­ties.


Faith, op­ti­mism and the de­sire to ex­plore all kinds of new hori­zons are some of the fo­cal points in your life. Just hear­ing from a co­worker who may be in an­other coun­try or an­other state has your heart skip­ping a few beats. Think­ing of the next va­ca­tion or the op­por­tu­nity to travel for the com­pany keeps your mind trav­el­ing. It is a good thing you have a rou­tine to fol­low in your work or there would be too many mis­takes as your mind trav­els over the next trip op­por­tu­nity. This is a re­ward­ing day in that much can be ac­com­plished. If you get ahead of your­self you might be able to knock off a lit­tle early to­ward the end of the week and do a lit­tle camp­ing or find a week­end job that will help cre­ate a lit­tle ex­tra trav­el­ing money.


If you need a loan, to­day is a good day to re­quest one. Pos­i­tive re­sults come from your in­vest­ments and earn­ing po­ten­tial–a raise is also in the works. There is a de­sire to be in con­trol this morn­ing as you will want to par­tic­i­pate in some de­ci­sion or im­por­tant vote. You make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence as you speak and guide oth­ers with your in­sight. It is good to have a pre­sen­ta­tion avail­able for oth­ers to re­view and to in­flu­ence the group to­ward a good de­ci­sion. You would make a good man­ager and you wait your time un­til it hap­pens, soon. This can be an ex­pan­sive, cre­ative and even ro­man­tic phase–a time you will look back on with pride. You may find your­self being put to good use by your friends this af­ter­noon.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

If pro­fes­sional ad­vice is needed you will have pos­i­tive re­sults. Chal­lenges pro­vide you with choices to ei­ther move in a new di­rec­tion or work to over­come the chal­lenge. This is a good time to be cre­ative and se­cure the pos­i­tive. Your cur­rent sit­u­a­tion may de­mand some reeval­u­a­tion or other­wise chal­lenge your ideas. You will over­come any dif­fi­culty in com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Any frus­tra­tion with con­nec­tions or tim­ing will be of short du­ra­tion. You may find this a cru­cial time dur­ing which–de­pend­ing on cir­cum­stances of your stand­ing or growth in the com­pany for which you work–you reach new heights of ac­com­plish­ment. This will bring about great dis­ci­pline and a con­cen­tra­tion or fo­cus. New op­por­tu­ni­ties open up soon that will show off your tal­ents.


If you want to be­gin a new work or per­sonal project, to­day and to­mor­row are good times. You ap­pre­ci­ate an in­ven­tive ap­proach and may value joint or un­con­ven­tional ideas. Think­ing you may need some health im­prove­ment, con­sider a hair anal­y­sis to dis­cover which nu­tri­tional foods would be most im­por­tant and ben­e­fi­cial for you. Phys­i­cal com­plaints can be helped through proper sup­ple­ments. You will nat­u­rally lose weight as you go along with a healthy pro­gram. A need to be healthy and more en­er­getic takes hold now. As you be­gin to get health­ier you en­cour­age oth­ers. A co-worker friend may have unique ways of dis­play­ing pic­tures and you could find that you en­joy check­ing out the lat­est. You may want to dis­play a few pic­tures.
