Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

SCOR­PIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV Un­ex­pected changes can dis­rupt the usual or­der and rou­tine of your life. You may want more creative free­dom in your work. You may vac­il­late be­tween con­ser­va­tive and re­bel­lious urges. Friends may be stim­u­lat­ing. You will show your self-con­trol and set ex­am­ples for oth­ers to fol­low as you have a way of sooth­ing any sav­age beast. As your per­sonal ex­pres­sion car­ries a more force­ful in­flu­ence now, it is a good time to as­sert lead­er­ship. For ex­am­ple, don’t just sug­gest that changes hap­pen, pitch in and lend a help­ing hand or lead a group in mak­ing a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence. This may in­volve help­ing chil­dren, clean­ing up the neigh­bor­hood or get­ting to­gether items for a garage sale. Im­proved phys­i­cal fit­ness can in­crease your vi­tal­ity.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC This satur­day is fa­vor­able for games, en­er­getic play and sports. Your chances of win­ning in a com­pe­ti­tion are good. You can en­joy mu­sic, par­ties, fun and ro­mance this evening. Changes can emerge from ob­scu­rity, of­fer­ing you more free­dom, sta­bil­ity and leisure. Your health im­proves as ten­sions ease and ther­a­pies can have a ben­e­fi­cial ef­fect. Your in­tu­itive and imag­i­na­tive pow­ers are stim­u­lated and you can fo­cus on worth­while goals and pro­duc­tive en­ter­prises. This is an ex­cel­lent time for psy­cho­log­i­cal, psy­chic or spir­i­tual stud­ies. Va­ca­tions and artis­tic pur­suits can be in­spir­ing. Re­lax and take care of your­self. Con­ver­sa­tions are pleas­ant and sym­pa­thetic. Vis­its with fam­ily mem­bers and friends tend to be nur­tur­ing and con­struc­tive.

CAPRI­CORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN This can be a time of great per­sonal growth. New en­coun­ters and un­ex­pected, ex­cit­ing events that give you new in­sight are likely to take place to­day. You are will­ing to take per­sonal risks–even the act of risk-tak­ing makes you feel more free and alive. You are aware that oth­ers dis­ap­prove, but that means lit­tle to you now. You can make progress in your pro­fes­sional and busi­ness am­bi­tions this next week and this suc­cess may lean to­ward your plan­ning. Fam­ily may play a part in the plan­ning as the de­sire to live in a cer­tain area and a cer­tain type of home may play a big part in fu­ture needs. Im­prove your in­for­ma­tion skills by or­ga­niz­ing a rou­tine pat­tern to­ward learn­ing new things–study, read­ing, plan fu­ture classes, and play.

AQUAR­IUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB You will have no prob­lems with in­tri­cate and de­tailed projects this day. In fact, this time prac­ti­cally de­mands that you pro­ceed in this way. Work­ing or projects that oth­er­wise might seem a waste of time can be ac­com­plished with rel­a­tive ease, just so you can bring your at­ten­tion back to the in­tri­cate and de­tailed. This could mean you have started your own busi­ness or you are dec­o­rat­ing or en­joy­ing a hobby away from the work world. If you are work­ing to­day, your spe­cialty work is an ef­fort that you en­joy putting forth. You en­joy where you are, some­times re­gard­less of the work re­quested of you. You are unique in help­ing ev­ery­one ben­e­fit. You and oth­ers will see that you of­ten are suc­cess­ful be­cause of your con­fi­dence and pos­i­tive at­ti­tude.

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR This pe­riod can be sig­nif­i­cant to your even­tual re­tire­ment. It’s a good time to reeval­u­ate your fi­nan­cial stand­ing. You may face cer­tain sit­u­a­tions that could force you to be­come more re­source­ful–and you will rise to the oc­ca­sion. With oth­ers in your age group, you may have to reeval­u­ate at­ti­tudes to­ward shar­ing and trust. You may deal with dy­namic, en­er­getic and de­mand­ing peo­ple from time to time. As you en­counter con­flicts, you be­come elated with the re­spon­si­bil­ity of find­ing your way through the dif­fi­culty–you are a good teacher as well. You tend to de­sire more fun and stim­u­lat­ing ro­mance in your life. You may want to party tonight. You have a plan and soon you will have a friend with whom to share the evening.

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR Your dreams or ideals can now be­gin to take prac­ti­cal form and ap­pli­ca­tion. Old sit­u­a­tions are fad­ing away and new op­por­tu­ni­ties present them­selves. With self-re­spect and re­al­ism, you can be sup­port­ive of oth­ers and be­gin to achieve con­crete re­sults. Your com­mu­nity in­volve­ment can make con­sid­er­able progress. Your vi­sion and psy­cho­log­i­cal in­sight can be in­spir­ing and ther­a­peu­tic to your­self and oth­ers. Your think­ing tends to be ex­cit­ing and orig­i­nal. You can have sud­den in­tu­itive in­sights and you are open to new ideas. Con­tracts, agree­ments and com­mu­ni­ca­tions tend to be fa­vor­able. A sud­den trip could be ex­cit­ing and re­ward­ing. Friends, groups and or­ga­ni­za­tions pro­vide worth­while ideas.

TAU­RUS 20 APR – 20 MAY You may need to deal with threats or co­er­cive tac­tics, or strug­gle against cor­rup­tion and dis­hon­esty. You will ex­ceed the ex­pec­ta­tions of your peers and bring any prob­lem to a halt. You may have reme­dies that will keep the prob­lem from com­ing up again and writ­ing a pam­phlet on the remedy will help your pro­fes­sional stand­ing im­mensely. Take re­spon­si­bil­ity for se­cur­ing your own vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties with pre­cau­tion, hon­esty, trust and self-re­spect. This can be a chaotic time when you may want to avoid your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Ex­tract your­self from en­tan­gle­ments. Pol­i­tics can be a pos­i­tive move for you . . . Keep your hu­mil­ity. Pos­i­tive ac­tiv­i­ties just hap­pen this evening. You may get with a friend and plan a hik­ing trip soon.

GEM­INI 21 MAY – 21 JUN This is a fun day and it is time to set aside the over­time and make a pre­sen­ta­tion that will show your time is worth more than you are paid now. You may find travel to be re­ju­ve­nat­ing, bring­ing re­newal to your sense of op­ti­mism and spir­i­tual growth. Of course this travel may not be for per­sonal plea­sure but pos­si­bly for busi­ness. You will be pleased with the out­come of any trip. You can re­lease out­moded be­liefs and dis­cover hid­den truths and wis­dom at this time. 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 make you bet­ter able to han­dle au­thor­ity and re­spon­si­bil­ity. Mu­sic is re­lax­ing tonight.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL Meet­ing mem­bers of the op­po­site sex is en­hanced. You have a clear pic­ture of friends’ feel­ings. You should not hes­i­tate to sup­plant your own wishes and wants for those of a friend or rel­a­tive, how­ever–the re­la­tion­ship can only im­prove with your help. Take stock of what you have ac­com­plished in life and share your ad­vice with oth­ers. Look around–a friend may have a young per­son that will lis­ten to you. To­day brings with it a golden op­por­tu­nity to men­tor to oth­ers–to lead and guide oth­ers. Ex­press­ing af­fec­tion should come eas­ily and can do much good for your dis­po­si­tion. You will do well with groups of peo­ple to­day–per­haps you will sing within a group or play some team sports. This evening would be a good time to set up reg­u­lar meet­ings.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG Pro­fes­sion­ally speak­ing, you are at the top of your game. In other words, your fo­cus is good and you seem to in­tu­itively know when to make the right move to be of help to a cus­tomer. Some of the peo­ple you help to­day will seek you out in the fu­ture. Later to­day, a re­la­tion­ship is high­lighted. Set the stage for an in­ti­mate, heart-to-heart talk in or­der to show your sup­port as well as to gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing. Be pa­tient with a fam­ily mem­ber who has a press­ing prob­lem. Es­cape bore­dom through this evening by re­view­ing the progress of a fa­vorite hobby. You will work very hard on your own per­sonal projects now. You may feel op­ti­mistic and se­cure. Con­tinue to reach high and the fu­ture will be en­light­en­ing.

VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP This day will show you how you can gain bet­ter con­trol your earn­ing power. Ini­tially, you will need to be more fru­gal and re­source­ful in your fi­nances and de­velop a more prac­ti­cal sense of val­ues. To­day you will have an op­por­tu­nity to speak up and step into a lit­tle part-time job. In­ter­est­ing . . . This job may take you into some very in­ter­est­ing places. You will grad­u­ally build up your sav­ings through this lit­tle job. Your imag­i­na­tion is stim­u­lated and you may re­veal some of your psy­chic tal­ent. You can teach an­other about the schemes and promises that harm the in­no­cent in a neigh­bor­hood or among a group of peo­ple. Per­haps you could teach a class, give a lec­ture on wise choices or cre­ate a news­let­ter re­gard­ing per­sonal safety.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT This is a good time when there is a high in­ter­est in projects but ac­tion is not forced. Team sports and com­mu­nity ac­tiv­i­ties that re­quire phys­i­cal ex­er­tion pro­vide great sat­is­fac­tion. Any phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties un­der­taken to­day will be en­joy­able. There is an op­por­tu­nity to ex­cel in some fa­vorite task or hobby. This is a good time for ac­com­plish­ing any per­sonal project started ear­lier. Your work is much more ef­fec­tive than usual and you are able to get a lot done. In ad­di­tion, this is a very good time for phys­i­cal com­pe­ti­tion and sports. Many changes have taken place around you this year–now is the time to en­joy the com­pany of friends and in some ways, just cel­e­brate life. Find a unique way to ex­press your ap­pre­ci­a­tion to a loved one.
