Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


This is a sta­ble pe­riod where you can make steady progress to­ward your ca­reer and so­cial goals. You can de­velop the con­fi­dence, hon­esty, ma­tu­rity and self-re­spect that can help you han­dle au­thor­ity and re­spon­si­bil­ity. Now is a fa­vor­able time for seek­ing em­ploy­ment or pro­mo­tion as well as for learn­ing new du­ties and travel re­lated to your work. This time fa­vors busi­ness ne­go­ti­a­tions. Team sports and com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties that re­quire phys­i­cal ex­er­tion pro­vide great stress-re­lief. Be ready to back up your in­no­va­tive ideas and do not prom­ise more than you think you can de­liver. There is an op­por­tu­nity to stand up for your be­liefs, per­haps for an­i­mal-rights. Ben­e­fit comes through new friends and col­leagues as­so­ci­ated with uni­ver­si­ties.


There may be sev­eral changes of res­i­dence for the next few years and now you may be con­sid­er­ing yet another move. You may en­ter­tain friends of­ten or con­duct busi­ness from the home. Fam­ily life is sub­ject to dis­rup­tions and fam­ily mem­bers are more in­de­pen­dent and re­bel­lious. If you work away from home, you could be hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ties choos­ing be­tween driv­ing long dis­tances in or­der to stay away from the heav­ily pop­u­lated ar­eas of the city, or find­ing a place within an arts district or some other spe­cial area of the city. Con­sider giv­ing your­self more time for these de­ci­sions and con­sider the method of fam­ily com­mu­ni­ca­tion for this de­ci­sion. You have an in­ter­est in new or novel forms of ar­chi­tec­ture, food and do­mes­tic ser­vices.


This time in­creases com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween your­self and oth­ers, but it may also in­crease con­flicts of ego that will man­i­fest ver­bally. You may find your­self the neu­tral third party that me­di­ates a de­bate. You could teach a group in prob­lem-solv­ing ne­go­ti­a­tions or anger-man­age­ment prob­lems. Ne­go­ti­a­tions or con­tract dis­cus­sions are best left for another day. This time fa­vors a phys­i­cal heal­ing as well as a re­pair of mis­un­der­stand­ings. Spend some time study­ing, teach­ing or learn­ing through group dis­cus­sion. This af­ter­noon, you will be en­joy­ing some peace­ful sur­round­ings–per­haps be­side a beach or lake. Take a friend with you on a re­lax­ing bi­cy­cle ride or walk this evening. This time brings with it deep feel­ings of af­fec­tion.


Your pro­fes­sional life is steady but you may think it is mov­ing a bit slowly. If you are think­ing of mak­ing a change in your life­style–per­haps to stir the pot a bit–now is the time to fol­low-through with your ideas. If this is your first job, per­haps you have been in one place long enough. The urge to roam and dis­cover the other side of the moun­tain is some­thing you may want to talk over with close friends or a fam­ily mem­ber. You tend to make more con­tact with older, more ex­pe­ri­enced peo­ple as well as those that are in po­si­tions of au­thor­ity and there is a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence to tap into. Pleas­ant so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties are on the in­crease this af­ter­noon. Sports or games with chil­dren can be great fun. Let your artis­tic ex­pres­sion and per­sonal style flour­ish.


To­day is fa­vor­able for cul­tural, re­li­gious and le­gal mat­ters. Gen­eros­ity, fi­nan­cial gain, hos­pi­tal­ity and fa­vors may be be­stowed on you. You com­bine your courage with am­bi­tion and self-con­trol. You can ac­com­plish much to­ward your goals if you gen­tly move your at­ten­tion back onto the path, keep­ing a fo­cus. Of­fi­cials and peo­ple in au­thor­ity give you their sup­port and you can deal ef­fec­tively with busi­ness and pro­fes­sional af­fairs. Work with tools or ma­chine goes rapidly and smoothly. You can make progress in man­age­rial and ad­min­is­tra­tive ar­eas. This af­ter­noon, the pe­riod spent with friends or rel­a­tives is one of light­hearted and en­joy­able times. You are par­tic­u­larly sen­si­tive to beauty and this af­ter­noon fa­vors cre­at­ing or buy­ing beau­ti­ful art.


You tend to be most con­cerned with chil­dren and their ed­u­ca­tional devel­op­ment. Teach­ing and per­form­ing ad­vi­sor du­ties are good pro­fes­sions for you. You may re­ceive a salary in­crease or fa­vors from your em­ployer. You have a tal­ent for bring­ing peo­ple to­gether and to­day you are asked to vol­un­teer for a very im­por­tant ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­ity in­volv­ing chil­dren. You may not get paid for this ex­tra work im­me­di­ately, but you will see com­pen­sa­tion even­tu­ally. You can also find new ways to im­prove your health. You are apt to par­tic­i­pate more in games, sports and ac­tive play with your friends this af­ter­noon. This change of pace could be most in­vig­o­rat­ing. Tonight there is time to soak in the hot tub or to en­joy a bub­ble bath.


You can take ac­tion to im­prove your fi­nances and per­sonal worth. With the ex­tra courage, you can ask for a raise in pay. You are more con­fi­dent and ca­pa­ble and you will be able to im­prove the pro­fes­sional realm with which you are in­volved as well as your own se­cu­rity and com­fort. You may be ob­sessed with a sin­gle idea, even though that idea has no real im­por­tance to you. Change the sub­ject or agree to dis­agree. When you pay at­ten­tion to these ten­den­cies, you will be able to have more con­trol over your emo­tions. Save the emo­tional see­saws for im­por­tant lifechang­ing events. Med­i­ta­tion or con­tem­pla­tion of hu­man be­hav­ior might be good. You will tend to in­dulge your­self this evening with just plain good feel­ings. Re­la­tion­ships are har­mo­nious.


Your com­pet­i­tive side clicks in to­day and you may have to walk away for a while to re­set your fo­cus. It may help you to set­tle down and get much ac­com­plished if you work on one thing at a time. You take pride in your ideas and try to in­flu­ence oth­ers with your writ­ing and speak­ing. You feel pas­sion­ate about your work and may not be very sat­is­fied if you find that lit­tle has been ac­com­plished dur­ing the day. The thing is . . . There is progress. Give your­self credit, coming to un­der­stand a dif­fi­cult path will help you to be­come more con­fi­dent when the road is com­pli­cated. There may be some dif­fi­culty with ne­go­ti­a­tions to­day but you can suc­ceed. Think about how you can ne­go­ti­ate busi­ness projects or set­tle­ments based on terms to which all par­ties can agree.

GEMINI 21 MAY – 21 JUN You should be suc­cess­ful in any un­der­tak­ing this day. An an­i­mal may come to your at­ten­tion and you may want to help heal or find a way to par­tic­i­pate in fu­ture con­cern for par­tic­u­lar an­i­mals. Per­haps weather or dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances have pre­sented a ne­ces­sity to help these an­i­mals. Group ac­tiv­i­ties that you can or­ga­nize will help to bring about all sorts of aware­ness, warn­ings and care tech­niques. In the busi­ness sec­tion of your life, some­thing of value from your su­pe­ri­ors is sur­pris­ing as well as grat­i­fy­ing. Spend some time in re­view of your fu­ture plans. You have pri­vate goals to be re­al­ized now as your do­mes­tic life be­comes more and more im­por­tant to you. Your skills and clever think­ing will work to­ward help­ing you build up your sav­ings and tal­ents.


New rou­tines break the monotony but this rou­tine will need some syn­chro­niza­tion for it to work smoothly. How­ever, the prob­lems of work will com­pel you to use your in­ves­tiga­tive sense and de­velop some sort of un­der­stand­ing and even­tual fair agree­ments. If su­pe­ri­ors do not have writ­ten proof of your find­ings, you may not have the power to make the nec­es­sary changes. Take some time to view how oth­ers view you–you have the op­por­tu­nity to gain quite a lot of in­sight. The key phrase here is clar­ity of per­cep­tion for your re­flected per­son­al­ity. Avoid need­less stress to ei­ther body or psy­che. This evening is the per­fect time to walk, bi­cy­cle ride or just en­joy the stars with some­one spe­cial. Plan some time to be out-of-doors this coming week­end–fresh air!

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

This is a time of chal­lenge that could test your de­ci­sion-mak­ing process. Some­one who op­poses you may chal­lenge you or you may have trou­ble get­ting a new pro­ject started. In any case, these man­i­fes­ta­tions will force you to eval­u­ate the wor­thi­ness of your ac­tiv­i­ties. Write out a list for your­self that in­cludes your ac­tiv­i­ties that are work­ing to­ward the end re­sult that you want and a list of how you can move to­ward the de­sired out­come in more pro­fi­cient ways. If you come upon blocks, it may be time to un­der­stand that a de­tour or time-out may be im­por­tant. Neigh­bor­hood or­ga­ni­za­tions, work­ing groups, friends and busi­ness as­so­ci­ates will put pres­sure on you to con­form to their goals. You en­joy help­ing oth­ers as you con­tinue to make your own progress.


There may be a new plan in the works to start up a busi­ness that can be ac­com­plished from home. Let an ex­pert check the pa­per­work and then make your de­ci­sion. It may be that you will want to keep your day job and start the new one grad­u­ally. Al­though youth never seems to think of re­tire­ment . . . Now is a great time to con­sider your even­tual re­tire­ment. It may also be smart to reeval­u­ate your fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity plans. Elim­i­nate fi­nan­cially un­pro­duc­tive ar­eas and put more ef­fort into mean­ing­ful pur­suits. Re­la­tion­ships with fe­male friends and rel­a­tives are very good– they may pro­vide you with a wel­come op­por­tu­nity to get to know some­one new. While shop­ping later this af­ter­noon, you will want to pay close at­ten­tion to the sales tag; there may be a bar­gain.
