Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

LIBRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT If pro­fes­sional ad­vice is needed, this week is the most pro­duc­tive time to seek that ad­vice. Stresses and blocks that pre­vi­ously were in your way, now seem to be fad­ing. You want to gain the ad­van­tage over life’s stresses and use them to your best ad­van­tage so you want to learn how. Faith untested is not worth both­er­ing with: that’s the les­son that takes cen­ter stage in your life now. Le­gal, po­lit­i­cal or ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ences re­quire se­ri­ous thought and plan­ning. This af­ter­noon you could be plot­ting your next move to suc­cess. You could have some fun times with young peo­ple later to­day. You are very imag­i­na­tive when it comes to other peo­ple and re­la­tion­ships of all kinds. A most re­laxed evening is un­fold­ing.

SCORPIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV. You may have trou­ble get­ting mov­ing, but once rolling, oth­ers bet­ter move aside. This is an ex­cel­lent time to be in school, or to work at a job. You will ben­e­fit from log­i­cal in­sights, get­ting to the heart of things. Af­ter you have given some time for thought and fo­cus, ne­go­ti­a­tions dur­ing this time can be quite pos­i­tive. If you take it easy and do a bit of re­search, you will find your­self in a good po­si­tion to re­solve or fi­nal­ize plans. You may have a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to so­cial­ize this evening. This could be in a res­tau­rant or at a com­mu­nity get-to­gether. Net­work­ing at this time, with peo­ple who share your in­ter­ests, pro­vides both sup­port and feed­back for fu­ture achieve­ments. This is a great time for you to plan a new diet.

SAGITTARIUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC You may be help­ing peo­ple that find dif­fi­culty in lis­ten­ing or grasp­ing what is told to them. Try not to per­son­al­ize the sit­u­a­tion and re­peat your­self in sev­eral dif­fer­ent ways. Some­times peo­ple need to hear an ex­pla­na­tion in a dif­fer­ent sort of pre­sen­ta­tion or ex­pla­na­tion. Much is ac­com­plished to­day. This could mean that some form of teach­ing, lec­tur­ing, con­fer­ence or re­search work is ac­com­plished. Your mind is very clear and your thoughts are brought to a sharp fo­cus. It is easy to or­ga­nize your thoughts and com­mu­ni­ca­tion of all kinds is fur­thered. Write that book–take that course. Your thoughts count–so use your mind and com­mu­ni­cate. You may have sud­den in­sights, and you will have an un­ex­pected boost in the way you ex­press your­self.

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN You may find your­self con­fronting an au­thor­ity fig­ure to­day. This could be a good thing if you are friends as well be­cause a clear un­der­stand­ing may be what is needed to push for pos­i­tive re­sults con­cern­ing a whole group. If you are not close, phrase your ques­tion care­fully and show that you want what is best for the whole. Do not push if your ques­tions do not re­ceive clear an­swers. Rad­i­cal and in­ven­tive ideas may hold the key to re­al­iz­ing your am­bi­tions and ad­vanc­ing your sta­tus–a shakeup could be in the works. The new broom sweeps clean; old pat­terns of or­ga­ni­za­tion and power are ripe for an in­no­va­tive ap­proach. You are gifted and even lucky when it comes to ca­reer de­ci­sions. Things will man­age to work out well for you at this time.

AQUARIUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB Ex­am­ine and re­or­ga­nize your work­place to re­flect an en­vi­ron­ment that will in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity. Spec­u­la­tive ven­tures have tremen­dous prom­ise. Re­tire­ment plan­ning also can be es­pe­cially for­tu­nate. This is a good time to pro­mote your tal­ents or to make pro­pos­als. Your dis­ci­pline and fo­cus in cre­ative en­deav­ors help you to be cre­ative in the way you make your pre­sen­ta­tions. You tend to take ev­ery­thing with great pas­sion. Your drive to get at the heart and truth of things is con­stantly in­voked and serves as a com­mon theme in your life. You may find that your per­sonal growth de­pends upon how you can han­dle some very sen­si­tive sub­jects this af­ter­noon–pa­tience. You make the right choices when you give your­self time to think be­fore you speak.

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR Your or­ga­ni­za­tional abil­i­ties and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity will be what guides you and proves suc­cess­ful. Your ca­reer could as­sume a much more de­ter­mined and solid form–a firm foun­da­tion. Mak­ing your mark on the world has spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for you. Achieve­ment, am­bi­tion and au­thor­ity are things that take on greater im­por­tance. Or­ga­niz­ing and ad­min­is­ter­ing peo­ple and projects will be­come cen­tral to your lifestyle. Spec­u­la­tive ven­tures fare well at this time. You may fi­nally see some re­sults from an in­vest­ment you have held for some time. A re­la­tion­ship will im­prove as the evening moves along; you can help your loved one to re­lax with a mas­sage. A mas­sage could also be shared. Home is where the heart is this evening.

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR At the work­place to­day there is a sense of emo­tional cool­ness or de­tach­ment at the per­sonal level. You may find this a good set­ting for work­ing and ac­com­plish­ing much. It is ideas that count for you now, more than nar­rowly per­sonal con­cerns–and you may have lit­tle tol­er­ance for peo­ple who do not op­er­ate at this level. You value what is hon­est and straight­for­ward and have a par­tic­u­lar dis­like of what is se­cret, in­tense and pri­vate. The new, un­usual and at times, the whim­si­cal are the things that in­stinc­tively ap­peal to you. A so­cial event this evening will find you at your most el­e­gant. You draw emo­tional sus­te­nance and a sense of se­cu­rity from ideals, friends and so­cial in­volve­ment now. Tonight is for laugh­ter and fun con­ver­sa­tions.

TAURUS 20 APR – 20 MAY You must be open to the op­por­tu­ni­ties around you. Ex­ert the ini­tia­tive it takes to use each mo­ment to the ben­e­fit of your progress. This is an ac­tive day. If you feel that there is more stress in your day than you would pre­fer, help your phys­i­cal well­be­ing by soft­en­ing your diet. At home this evening, you en­joy the com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween friends and fam­ily. There is an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for ideas and thoughts that are in­no­va­tive. Many times you have been pressed for time, yet you know that your in­ter­ac­tion with fam­ily and friends re­quires spe­cial at­ten­tion. You are wise to take time to be with loved ones. It is easy for you to love and be com­pas­sion­ate and to value what life of­fers. You have a sense of unity and brother­hood that will stay with you.


Sat­is­fy­ing days make up for all the stress that comes with the chal­leng­ing days. This is a re­ward­ing day; you can grab the at­ten­tion or the ben­e­fits. Work is easy to com­plete. Travel and ad­ven­ture are com­pelling temp­ta­tions as you dare to test your met­tle and stretch your hori­zons. You can demon­strate great un­der­stand­ing and sen­si­tiv­ity to the needs of oth­ers just now and are in a good po­si­tion to com­mu­ni­cate con­cern­ing groups and so­ci­ety. You may be able to bring a group to­gether with words or ideas that trans­port oth­ers. Po­etry and art may be pos­si­ble now. Cre­ative en­deav­ors may bring mon­e­tary re­wards–praises for the depth of your imag­i­na­tion and cre­ativ­ity are over­flow­ing. Movies, books and all forms of es­cape are en­joyed.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL Although you shy away from chal­lenges, you can­not es­cape fac­ing a few of them. Chal­lenges are what help us grow–learn­ing about our­selves and oth­ers. Chal­lenges also help us to im­prove our prob­lem-solv­ing skills–to­day may be chal­leng­ing. An ir­re­sistible force meets an im­mov­able ob­ject–pro­ceed with cau­tion! There are ap­pro­pri­ate times to ex­press your feel­ings. To­day your prob­lem-solv­ing skills may be more di­rected to­ward learn­ing how to stay out of a sticky sit­u­a­tion. There is a lot of en­ergy avail­able for what­ever is needed. The se­cret to a suc­cess­ful day is a good meal and breaks where you can re­ally en­joy some quiet time, which may in­clude a walk or some ex­er­cise rou­tine. Water, mu­sic and an an­i­mal are forms of re­lax­ation this evening.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG This morn­ing you are up early and in the mood to clean and clear away any clut­ter, whether it be in­side or out­side your liv­ing area. You are in a de­ter­mined mood to make things look neat and to clear away the cob­webs, so to speak. Clear think­ing is im­por­tant just now. To­day you could be teach­ing or at­tend­ing a lec­ture. Your words and ideas can trans­port and en­chant lis­ten­ers, car­ry­ing them be­yond the world as they know it and into the world as they wish it could be. You may de­cide that this af­ter­noon is the time to put your en­er­gies to­ward some en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns. You may help to or­ga­nize some ben­e­fit for the kids in your town. Chil­dren cer­tainly have your at­ten­tion as you want very much to help them have a good start in life.

VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP Con­tracts signed now through the end of this month will have pos­i­tive re­sults. High-tech gam­bles could pay off in big ways. Su­pe­ri­ors seem to de­mand more than usual to­day. Mak­ing this a har­mo­nious day may de­pend on your will­ing­ness to tend to some­one else’s needs. Turn­about-is-fair-play will hap­pen for you soon, but for now a pa­tient at­ti­tude will be most im­por­tant. Un­con­ven­tional hob­bies and other forms of self-ex­pres­sion that break from the norm play a big­ger part in your life. A child or lover may be re­bel­lious–or per­haps sim­ply ahead of his or her time. Ro­mance and re­cre­ation take on an un­usual char­ac­ter, out of step with or­di­nary ex­pec­ta­tions. You may find that you have in­tu­itive abil­i­ties that you had never no­ticed be­fore.
