Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


Cir­cum­stances are work­ing in your fa­vor to help you and raise you up–push you for­ward. You have a stick-to-itive­ness that al­ways finds you in the thick of things. Cre­ative ideas and a feel­ing of ac­com­plish­ment with your progress are eas­ily yours. You could be in the lime­light in re­la­tion to your work to­day. You may be think­ing of im­prov­ing your wardrobe. You will find a good buy if you com­pare prices. Think along the lines of more color this fall–get rid of some of those all black out­fits. You may be look­ing over your fi­nances to­day and mak­ing de­ci­sions along the line of in­vest­ing. If a loan is needed, to­day is a good time to or­ga­nize your re­quest. You may find your­self look­ing for a lit­tle ro­mance this evening or at least en­joy­ing com­pany.


Some­one needs your sup­port this sat­ur­day and you are able to pro­vide help by sim­ply be­ing nearby. You should, how­ever, wait un­til you are asked to be­come in­volved–he or she may not need what you think. Later this af­ter­noon there is a chance to join in some team sports. The neigh­bor­hood or the com­mu­nity group for which you be­long may be hav­ing some com­pe­ti­tion meet at a nearby gym. Be­ing more in­volved with neigh­bors or sib­lings sat­is­fies a deep emo­tional need. You should work hard dur­ing this time to keep the fam­ily close. Com­mu­ni­cat­ing feel­ings be­comes more im­por­tant. Food for thought: the im­ages you see re­flect your thoughts–think pos­i­tive. New clothes are in the fore­cast.


A nu­tri­tional change is in or­der and now is the most pro­duc­tive time to make those changes. Put your mind to work and take care of any de­tails that you may have, for men­tal dis­ci­pline should come eas­ily. Prob­lems and ob­sta­cles that have pre­vi­ously been con­found­ing should find easy ex­pla­na­tions un­der your keen ex­am­i­na­tion. Now could be the time to move for­ward in any projects you want to un­der­take. Don’t worry about what you have to do; fo­cus on the here and now and it will all work. Say­ing and writ­ing things with style counts for a lot now and this tends to bring out the so­cial but­ter­fly in all of us. You are able to en­joy and value your own life sit­u­a­tion. A friend or vis­i­tor in your home gives you plenty of com­pli­ments.


There are op­ti­mism, faith and a ten­dency to take chances at the deep­est emo­tional lev­els to­day. You could find that you are ap­pre­ci­ated for your abil­ity to act and get things done. Some­one un­der­stands your point of view and is will­ing to lis­ten to some changes you may want to make in the home. Gath­er­ing and ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion be­comes an im­por­tant part of your pre­sen­ta­tion and can be an ex­am­ple for the young peo­ple in the home. Neigh­bors or sib­lings have a big im­pact on your goals and make a big im­pres­sion. This whole week­end could prove to be a men­tally and so­cially ac­tive pe­riod. You have a clear vi­sion into your own in­ner sense of val­ues and how you ap­pre­ci­ate and love. This is a good time to ex­am­ine and cre­ate new goals.


You may ap­pear very re­laxed to­day. Ev­ery­thing seems to be work­ing to­gether and you may find your­self ex­pres­sive and able to com­mu­ni­cate well. You could be most per­sua­sive with oth­ers and elo­quent in speech and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. The sit­u­a­tion is a nat­u­ral for self-ex­pres­sion and lends it­self to your par­tic­u­lar way of think­ing. A good con­ver­sa­tion with those you love is pos­si­ble. You have a real ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the cre­ative mind and you are en­cour­aged to study. You may find your­self en­joy­ing long con­ver­sa­tions, writ­ing a let­ter or mak­ing a spe­cial phone call. De­cide what you want with re­gard to change in your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion and then go for it. This may mean adding a loft apart­ment to the house or en­larg­ing a kitchen or sim­ply, a new paint job; en­joy.


You will be pleased at what you can ac­com­plish to­day. Few in­ter­rup­tions ben­e­fit you in any re­search time. This op­por­tu­nity can be wisely used to your ad­van­tage. A day that is not too lazy or too stress­ful–time for ac­com­plish­ing tasks or set­ting up a plan works suc­cess­fully. Reg­u­lar work or home chores move along swiftly. There is time for a lun­cheon, a meet­ing and per­haps a con­fer­ence to talk of ways in which your ideas can de­velop. Pro­duc­tive con­ver­sa­tions will bring pos­i­tive re­sults. Your in­stinc­tive di­rec­tion at this time is to­ward get­ting down to busi­ness. On the home front, you and your fam­ily might like to help or­ga­nize a neigh­bor­hood garage sale so that you can use the funds to plant trees along the street or con­trib­ute to­ward a char­ity.


The work you do, the way you take care of health and other mun­dane obli­ga­tions are im­por­tant keys to your progress now. There is a need for fo­cus and care­ful anal­y­sis in this area of your life. Set up sys­tems and sched­ules and stick to them! A new job of­fer from last week may call for new cloth­ing: a suit, a coat, etc. This is a good time to shop for those things but do not go over­board as you may de­cide you like where you are work­ing just fine. A com­fort­able get-to­gether this af­ter­noon gives you an op­por­tu­nity to laugh with friends and re­lax. Your bril­liant imag­i­na­tion and en­chant­ing man­ner trans­port all who meet you be­yond the dull and into the ex­tra­or­di­nary re­gions where you en­joy your life. You would have fun writ­ing short sto­ries.


Op­por­tu­ni­ties open up in a very nat­u­ral way. Sit­u­a­tions are al­most tai­lor-made and it is easy to see how the day ahead will un­fold. Plans have been made and a short trip or cam­pout is at hand and you are ready to go; in fact, you were prob­a­bly ready hours ago. The en­er­gies to­day speak of travel and friends and fun. Cir­cum­stances should work to­gether to help bring out your ideas. There are fu­ture plans you want to talk about and there are friends that are in­ter­ested in your think­ing. You may find your­self more than a lit­tle cu­ri­ous about their goals as well. You cer­tainly would en­joy set­ting up time for more ad­ven­tures like to­day. You en­joy the day and vis­it­ing among friends. You may be tempted to pur­chase lots of cu­rios; care­ful.


You are much too busy at this time. It could be hard for you to bal­ance all the de­mands that come to your at­ten­tion. Look for ways to strike a bal­ance, even if you have to step away for a bit–cre­ate a di­ver­sion or hire some­one to help you. A young teenager might en­joy a lit­tle ex­tra spend­ing money if you are in­ter­ested in pack­ing a few boxes away in stor­age, or per­haps get­ting a few boxes un­packed from stor­age for the hol­i­days ahead. A per­sonal im­prove­ment of yours is vis­i­ble. Changes you want to make re­gard­ing a habit or life-pat­tern of ac­tiv­ity are a pos­i­tive now and will have a good foun­da­tion. This evening you will ben­e­fit from a lit­tle time with your feet propped up and some re­lax­ing mu­sic–of course a mas­sage might be nice!

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Ideas and in­ter­ac­tion with au­thor­ity fig­ures or re­spected el­ders may be in the fore­cast. It may be time to co­erce a se­nior rel­a­tive into mov­ing to new liv­ing quar­ters. This might not be too hard, de­pend­ing on where the new digs might be lo­cated. Mov­ing with the flow of en­er­gies to­day you will make some ben­e­fi­cial dis­cov­er­ies. The home front may be in need of a lit­tle work and you are mag­i­cal in how you talk some­one into help­ing you with a lad­der as well as heavy work. You may be ex­hausted by the day’s end; your goals seem crowded into a small time el­e­ment. The per­son help­ing you to­day will help you again, so you could spread the work out over a few days in­stead of all in one day. A helper might en­joy one of your spe­cial menus this evening.


This is a day where you could con­tinue to be emo­tion­ally tested. You may need to keep or ad­just your thoughts or opin­ions into more pos­i­tive di­rec­tions. Chal­lenges just seem to fol­low you around to­day–chal­lenges, how­ever, bring op­por­tu­ni­ties to grow and ex­pand your knowl­edge. All this chal­lenge type of stress will pass be­cause you help to make any ad­just­ment pos­i­tive. You may de­cide to dive in and co­or­di­nate some project so that it will move quickly and be suc­cess­ful. A sudden in­spi­ra­tion helps you find a use­ful short­cut where a com­pli­cated project is con­cerned. Stop early and move to the rhythm of mu­sic; dance, love, laugh and be happy. A lover en­riches your life and to­day you think about how great it is to have this per­son in your life–tell him or her.


Ev­ery­thing may be pour­ing in at once and it’s all good news. Your friends are in town or a home­com­ing foot­ball game party is shap­ing up nicely; what­ever the case, there are lots of er­rands and chores and peo­ple to help be­fore some cel­e­bra­tion can be en­joyed. You may ben­e­fit from an older per­son or one in au­thor­ity this af­ter­noon. This au­thor­ity fig­ure will help you un­der­stand some law or teach some law. There is time to re­lax this af­ter­noon, re­ally! Talk about some­thing other than the on­go­ing prepa­ra­tions you are in­volved with now. When you go back to your er­rands, you will find some­thing spe­cial that will help com­ple­ment the dance or the din­ner or the party in gen­eral. You will find plenty of com­pli­ments re­gard­ing your ef­forts with this event.
