Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

SCOR­PIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV. This whole day gives you the op­por­tu­nity to bring some fo­cus to the work­place and some un­der­stand­ing to a loved one on the home front. Un­der­stand your feel­ings and take re­spon­si­bil­ity for them–you will jump many steps ahead in the game of life. There are only two feel­ings, one is fear and the other is love. Any­thing else is an in­di­ca­tor of the two. Faith, op­ti­mism and a yearn­ing to ex­plore all kinds of new hori­zons are some of the fo­cal points in your life at this time. Short trips or a va­ca­tion may be­gin to­day or to­mor­row. Travel, ed­u­ca­tion and other ways to stretch your hori­zons open new doors of op­por­tu­nity. Mak­ing a good im­pres­sion and putting your best foot for­ward takes on a greater im­por­tance. Ro­mance takes cen­ter stage tonight.


This is an easy, calm day that you should find run­ning in a smooth man­ner. Ideas and in­ter­ac­tion with au­thor­ity fig­ures or older peo­ple may be in the fore­cast some­time dur­ing the day. Work­ing with, rather than against the flow, should be easy to do. Oth­ers may find you es­pe­cially witty and per­haps, a bit ec­cen­tric. You may have in­sights re­gard­ing your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or in life cir­cum­stances gen­er­ally. You will have the op­por­tu­nity to speak up for your team, group or depart­ment and your co-work­ers value you for th­ese unique qual­i­ties. You can ex­pect pleas­ant sur­prises to­day, along with some ex­tra sup­port. The path of suc­cess is avail­able for what­ever di­rec­tion you want to take. Co-work­ers want to talk af­ter work but make sure there is no gos­sip.


You have the mind of a lawyer as you quickly size up a prob­lem and come up with a so­lu­tion. Us­ing your mind to ne­go­ti­ate ob­sta­cles and han­dle dilem­mas is a great tal­ent and you en­joy the chal­lenges. To­day some miss­ing per­son or spe­cial item is lost and found due to your spe­cial tal­ents. You may be con­sid­er­ing a liv­ing in ac­count­ing, pol­i­tics, po­lice or psy­chol­ogy. A part-time job that would help you in your hopes of com­plet­ing a for­mal ed­u­ca­tion would not take as long as you think. At this time, peo­ple can get an ed­u­ca­tion over the in­ter­net. Per­haps you would need com­mu­ni­ca­tion with a pro­fes­sor or a trip to the univer­sity but you will find the ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties are more flex­i­ble and af­ford­able than in the past. A bud­get would be good.


Im­por­tant fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions re­quire more in­for­ma­tion than you re­al­ize. It’s im­por­tant to gather all the facts nec­es­sary to give you a re­al­is­tic idea of what­ever sub­ject is at hand. You have a large imag­i­na­tion when it comes to fi­nances–choos­ing pos­ses­sions and the ma­te­rial world. A grow­ing sense of ide­al­ism af­fects your pro­duc­tiv­ity and ma­te­rial con­cerns. You may work to es­tab­lish some co­op­er­a­tive, com­mu­nal goals. So­cial re­la­tion­ships are a spe­cial fo­cus. Travel and an­i­mated dis­cus­sions play a part in this and could be less than sat­is­fy­ing in some re­spects. There is a chance to un­der­stand those around you and to have a spe­cial time with some­one you love. Gen­eral good feel­ing and a sense of sup­port and har­mony make this a happy time. PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR Do not take chances or risks just now. Be sat­is­fied with the or­di­nary and the usual. Some­one may try to tell you an un­truth to­day but your mind cuts right through all the win­dow dress­ing and gets right down to the quick. Be­fore any­one knows it, you have the heart of a mat­ter out front for ev­ery­one to see. You would make a great in­ves­ti­ga­tor–ei­ther in sci­en­tific re­search or un­der­cover work–it makes no dif­fer­ence. Your abil­ity to get to the point is all but phe­nom­e­nal. You may have some hec­tic emo­tional en­ergy just now. It is easy to see what you value and care about th­ese days. Your sense of ap­pre­ci­a­tion is sharp­ened and in high fo­cus. If you are shop­ping to­day, it is bet­ter to com­pare prices than to pur­chase an item that you may not like later.


You feel a love of order and law–an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and duty. Prob­lems are val­ued for the lessons, rather than ob­sta­cles. Your ca­reer di­rec­tion will get en­cour­age­ment and life’s trou­bles should find un­com­pli­cated so­lu­tions. This just may be the time to take risks and dare to be un­con­ven­tional. You will pros­per through new in­sights. You could find that you are ap­pre­ci­ated for your abil­ity to act and get things done. Your speech can be most per­sua­sive. The en­er­gies at this time are work­ing in your fa­vor and you are open to the learn­ing process. Now is the time to move to­ward your goals. You take care to re­cy­cle and set ex­am­ples for oth­ers. You re­spect the earth and help oth­ers to do the same, en­sur­ing a pos­i­tive fu­ture for your chil­dren.


The way you deal with ne­ces­si­ties and obli­ga­tions–health and work in par­tic­u­lar–is in a state of trans­for­ma­tion. Your job sit­u­a­tion may change rad­i­cally. Im­prove­ments are in the works. En­vi­ron­men­tal con­tam­i­nants con­nected with your work can be a prob­lem. You will be pleased with your new ac­com­plish­ments, dur­ing which in­sights and a break­through in or­ga­ni­za­tion are in order. Things are hap­pen­ing, and your ca­reer or path de­pends upon your own ob­jec­tive, which is strong at this time. You are able to use good com­mon sense to feel the trends and make the right moves. You can progress by tak­ing ac­tion. There is a rev­o­lu­tion–new ideas and ways to do and use things be­come clear. You are in touch and in har­mony with oth­ers. You have good sup­por.


There are pos­si­bil­i­ties that you will run into a snag with a per­son or be­come blocked in a sit­u­a­tion this morn­ing. Qui­etly and re­spect­fully stat­ing your opin­ion may not be the an­swer in this sit­u­a­tion. The prob­lem could be a phys­i­cal ill­ness of an­other per­son and let­ting this dif­fi­culty slide may be the wiser choice. In-depth dis­cus­sions and prob­ing con­ver­sa­tions find you at your men­tal best this af­ter­noon. You may get the feel­ing that this has turned out to be a very for­tu­nate day. You are feel­ing suc­cess­ful and able to cope with what­ever comes across your path. You may find your­self very talk­a­tive tonight. You may even find that a board game or some trivia game brings back old and fond mem­o­ries. Sen­ti­men­tal­ism is present this evening. CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL Al­though you could overdo and find your­self feel­ing cross, you can pat your­self on the back for learn­ing how to rise above the neg­a­tive. Busi­ness lev­els out later to­day and yet, an­other rush on busi­ness prod­ucts may be planned. Per­haps there are dec­o­ra­tions to be sold, wed­ding dresses on spe­cial or cars at a low cost . . . Your ex­per­tise is fine-tuned and you could sell ice to an es­kimo. En­joy this busy time but plan your meals wisely and have snacks that are full of pro­tein. You are en­cour­aged in your ca­reer ad­vance­ment as well as your per­sonal progress–you en­cour­age oth­ers. You will ben­e­fit from an­a­lyt­i­cal in­sights, get­ting to the heart of things, pen­e­trat­ing. This evening find time to re­lax– per­haps a bi­cy­cle ride or a mas­sage. Laugh­ter is con­ta­gious–laugh a lit­tle.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

There is a push to com­plete your work. Travel op­por­tu­ni­ties are avail­able all month. This is a great time, when any­thing is pos­si­ble. One of the key el­e­ments dur­ing this time in­volves your sense of di­rec­tion. You may want to se­ri­ously re­view your ca­reer path. Higher ed­u­ca­tion or philo­soph­i­cal and per­haps re­li­gious con­tacts could have a part in mak­ing good things hap­pen. Part­ner­ships, per­sonal re­la­tion­ships or the so­cial scene in gen­eral is very im­por­tant dur­ing this time and can have a very de­cided in­flu­ence on your ca­reer. You may find that a more im­per­sonal at­ti­tude is the key. Use the re­cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties in your home­town; pay at­ten­tion to waste and ex­cess. Th­ese small steps will im­prove the qual­ity of life for your­self and oth­ers.


Your ca­reer or life path, the way you make your liv­ing or get through life, is quite unique. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties now, to reach beyond your cur­rent sit­u­a­tion and to ex­pand your hori­zons. Your ap­proach to any prob­lem is al­ways orig­i­nal and you could in­vent things or dis­cover new places or de­velop new ways of do­ing things. Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, com­put­ers and the whole elec­tronic rev­o­lu­tion are per­fect ca­reer choices for you. Close per­sonal re­la­tion­ships are likely to un­dergo some test­ing. Now is good for ce­ment­ing your ties to oth­ers. Make sure th­ese re­la­tion­ships are rock-solid, be­cause if they are not, they are apt to crack un­der stress. Fair­ness with and re­spon­si­bil­ity to the other peo­ple in your life is em­pha­sized to­day.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT

This is a re­ward­ing day. Oth­ers may seek you out for your ad­vice re­gard­ing very per­sonal is­sues at this time. You have a pro­lific moodal­ter­ing way of in­ter­act­ing with oth­ers and to­day you may find de­pressed con­ver­sa­tions easy to ma­nip­u­late into a most pos­i­tive out­look. You might con­sider writ­ing a se­ries on how one might sur­vive or ex­cel in the work­place. You are more tal­ented than you give your­self credit for and you can help many peo­ple with an up­beat, mat­ter-of-fact type of think­ing. You will find op­por­tu­ni­ties to cut through the red tape and get at what is be­neath and be­hind the most dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions with just the sim­plest of ques­tions. Recog­ni­tion comes from higher-ups. A loved one does for you, what you do for oth­ers–en­cour­ag­ing.
