Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT You will be pleased to­day–just take a look at all that is be­ing ac­com­plished! This is a re­ward­ing day. Pay close at­ten­tion to how you direct your en­er­gies. Slowly but surely, the stress is let­ting up and as each day pro­gresses you will feel less in­clined to wish you could yell and stomp your feet. Stress has been rough, but it is get­ting bet­ter. Ma­te­rial things and the whole con­cept of value take on more im­por­tance for you now. You have good taste and can in­vest a small amount of money for a nice re­turn. Be sure to get an ad­vi­sor that has a good rep­u­ta­tion. Big ideas and grand vi­sions usu­ally play a lead­ing role in your life. Mys­te­ri­ous or mys­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion fires your imag­i­na­tion. Do not be­lieve ev­ery­thing but keep an open mind.


Sit­u­a­tions and peo­ple you thought you could not rely on may have more depth than you thought. Some hap­pen­ing in the life of a strug­gling worker has helped to turn this worker into a bet­ter em­ployee. Watch­ing this im­prove­ment may have shown you a new way of work­ing with peo­ple that just need a lit­tle time to grow, be­come bet­ter trained and per­haps have more suc­cesses. Of course the prom­ise of in­creased pay for bet­ter per­for­mance will also cre­ate changes in the new worker. You are wise to let the worker know that you have no­ticed the im­prove­ment. You dis­cover new and dif­fer­ent rea­sons or ways to en­joy and ap­pre­ci­ate life. You may nat­u­rally al­ter your own value sys­tem, al­low­ing you to have a bet­ter in­sight and more tol­er­ance.


Some­one with a dif­fer­ent set of val­ues than your own may meet with you to­day. His or her taste may run counter to yours. This may sim­ply mean a dif­fer­ent sense of hu­mor; then again, it could just mean sim­ply likes and dis­likes. Lis­ten and learn and in some cases, just agree to dis­agree and then move for­ward. Life could be ter­ri­bly dull if ev­ery­one be­lieved the same way. Ev­ery­thing points to your tak­ing the ini­tia­tive with a dif­fer­ent mat­ter this af­ter­noon. You may be cho­sen to cre­ate a dis­play for all to see; you and oth­ers will be pleased with the re­sults. Your friends en­cour­age you. There is some fas­ci­na­tion with mu­sic to­day and be­cause it re­laxes you or gives your spirit a boost you may find a book­store quite fas­ci­nat­ing in many ways this af­ter­noon.


This can be a rather stress­ful day; how­ever, out of the stress can come a real un­der­stand­ing of just where you want to make or sug­gest some needed changes. Oth­ers may not be as com­mu­nica­tive as you would like, but you will find that if you busy your­self with your own work, prob­lems will just dis­solve away. You have good prac­ti­cal job-re­lated thoughts and ideas and when the time is right you will be able to com­mu­ni­cate these to your su­pe­ri­ors or to de­scribe what you see. You may find that both your per­sonal growth and your ca­reer may de­pend upon how you can han­dle very sen­si­tive psy­cho­log­i­cal ma­te­rial that may be com­ing up now. You ben­e­fit from an­a­lyt­i­cal in­sights–per­haps a men­tor or close friend will lend ad­vice. AQUAR­IUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB As this fall goes into full swing, you are mostly fo­cused on ca­reer. You have im­por­tant ob­jec­tives that you want to ful­fill. A cre­ative op­por­tu­nity al­lows you to ex­press your­self and be com­pen­sated. Pro­fes­sional ad­vice works in your best in­ter­est. This is a good time to make some changes and reach new lev­els. This may mean a lec­ture or a round-ta­ble dis­cus­sion. This is a per­fect time for new ideas and a break­through in think­ing. You may learn things that may shake your con­fi­dence and al­ter your view­point– growth. Your self-con­fi­dence is high and you feel the warm urges of am­bi­tion; you are ea­ger to make your mark. Good health, a happy mar­riage, loyal friends and ca­reer suc­cess are the pre­cious things you seek to achieve.


Peo­ple who are good for you en­ter your life now. Cir­cum­stances arise that give you the op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing you have never done be­fore. This is the best time to ask for a loan or to take a ride in a hot air bal­loon. Hav­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing things of beauty and value play a big role in your life. This can be a fi­nan­cially fa­vor­able pe­riod. There is a nat­u­ral trans­for­ma­tion of your val­ues–the way you ap­pre­ci­ate and love your­self and oth­ers. You may de­velop an eye for that which is last­ing and worth­while. A cy­cle of nos­tal­gia and do­mes­tic­ity be­gins, em­pha­siz­ing a need for se­cu­rity and a sense of roots. This evening is a fine time for all sorts of cou­ple or group games–a good time to un­wind with the fam­ily.


You are usu­ally more prac­ti­cal than most when it comes to deal­ing and work­ing with the pub­lic. You can act with­out haste and emo­tion. You are called on to make use of your nat­u­ral abil­i­ties and com­mon sense. You may be very force­ful in what you say and think. With all of this emo­tional en­ergy, you com­mu­ni­cate amaz­ingly well. You have a great deal of men­tal drive. You may find your­self with a friend at the lunch break, re­flect­ing on your own youth or some event from the past. Men­tal dis­ci­pline and pa­tience are keynoted again this af­ter­noon. Think­ing things through, ac­count­ing for all the de­tails and mak­ing care­ful mea­sure­ments keep your mind ac­tive and in­volved. A can­dle­light din­ner can be en­joyed tonight–re­lax.


A new set of clothes or a new look has you up early and ready for ac­tion to­day. You and a friend stay with an early morn­ing ex­er­cise pro­gram. In the work­place to­day, you win recog­ni­tion and au­thor­ity through hard work and know­ing the score. Self-dis­ci­pline and a sense of self-worth be­come im­por­tant is­sues in your life, as a new phase be­gins. A fear of as­sert­ing your­self can hold you back–as can com­ing on too strong. Write out a plan or list three things you can do now to reach your goals–do some­thing to move closer to your goals. The trick is learn­ing to make the most of your per­sonal tal­ents and abil­i­ties, work­ing within your lim­i­ta­tions in­stead of feel­ing hemmed in by them. You and your co-worker friends may en­joy a so­cial gath­er­ing this evening. GEM­INI 21 MAY – 21 JUN You may feel fa­vored to­day in many dif­fer­ent ar­eas of your life. Good luck and pos­i­tive ac­tion are in the fore­cast. If you are not sure about the small print in any con­tract, ask. The same goes for any ne­go­ti­a­tions just now. You should make ev­ery at­tempt to un­der­stand ex­actly what you are sign­ing–mat­ters could be de­ceiv­ing. You may want to pay par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the pos­si­bil­ity of be­ing mis­led. This is, how­ever, an­other one of your best over­all days where money is con­cerned. There is much en­ergy avail­able to you for tak­ing care of busi­ness. Higher-ups pay at­ten­tion to your ideas re­gard­ing com­mu­nity ser­vice. Per­haps you will lend a hand to help in a youth club. You and your co-work­ers can make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence.


Peo­ple and busi­ness projects are eas­ily ma­nip­u­lated, but to­day this could re­sult in re­sent­ments or a change of plans. Try to give pro­pos­als and ideas time to de­velop be­fore you push for an out­come. There is, per­haps, a sense of chal­lenge or block­age. As the en­er­gies around you slow–progress is slowed. Pa­tience will prove a ben­e­fit at this time. An op­ti­mistic out­look en­ables you to teach other peo­ple things you have learned. This may mean just ba­si­cally how to get through the slow and dif­fi­cult as well as how to en­joy the fast and up­beat mo­ments in life. Charm, per­sonal mag­netism and pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ences are linked to your at­ti­tude of pos­i­tive ex­pec­ta­tions. This af­ter­noon and evening are good times to so­cial­ize with friends or fam­ily.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Ex­tra en­ergy to­day al­lows you to com­plete a task or pro­ject that you have wanted to fin­ish for some time. You will be reap­ing the re­wards of your hard work, even though it may only be good feel­ings that come when you do your best. This is a re­ward­ing day. Make sure that you can fol­low through on some­thing be­fore you vol­un­teer to work with a char­ity or or­ga­ni­za­tion this af­ter­noon. Give your­self time to think be­fore you act. You can ap­pre­ci­ate feel­ings and move­ment and you have a lot of en­ergy to pour into what­ever you de­cide to do just now. A walk or some ex­er­cise this evening can be re­ju­ve­nat­ing–take a friend. In­spi­ra­tion and uplift­ing in­flu­ences are all around; you can use your in­sights to in­spire a friend or fam­ily mem­ber.


Right now, the key to ca­reer moves in­volves at­tend­ing to nag­ging de­tails–what­ever you have ne­glected and put aside till later. This could be a chal­leng­ing day. There is, how­ever, an open door to suc­cess. Give your­self time to think about new projects be­fore div­ing in–your at­ti­tude is full-speed-ahead. Pa­tience may work to your credit now. It may be ad­van­ta­geous to all if you can re­quest a help­ing hand when it comes to meet­ing a dead­line this af­ter­noon. Do not try to fin­ish a pro­ject by your­self. Re­ward the peo­ple that lend you a help­ing hand. You may find your­self more than a lit­tle cu­ri­ous and tempted to over­spend or indulge too much. It is im­por­tant for you to sense qual­ity and choose ac­cord­ingly. A bud­get would help to guide you.
