Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


There is an op­por­tu­nity to un­der­stand those around you and to have a fun time with friends and fam­ily to­day. Gen­eral good feel­ings and a sense of sup­port and har­mony make this a happy time. A young per­son may need lessons in man­ag­ing money and you are pro­vid­ing a plan. Care­ful, do not be­come too car­ried away–he or she will learn about the state of the econ­omy soon enough. You find your­self feel­ing more pri­vate and in a stay-at-home mood later to­day. You have a great so­cial drive and love to work in a group or with close friends but this af­ter­noon you may pre­fer to spend some time with your loved ones and fam­ily mem­bers. Games or some sort of sports ac­tiv­ity would not be an un­usual ac­tiv­ity for you and your loved ones to­gether.


You pos­sess, at your cen­ter, an in­ten­sity that burns through any in­con­sis­tency; search­ing for op­por­tu­ni­ties to un­der­stand the world and all of the many se­crets therein is a search you love to per­form. This may mean you lis­ten to a spe­cial ra­dio show or you read par­tic­u­lar books about space travel, time, un­der­wa­ter liv­ing, stock­ing up the food shelves, sur­vival tech­niques, tech­nol­ogy that is new on the mar­ket, etc. Deep con­ver­sa­tions may be dis­turb­ing, stim­u­lat­ing and en­light­en­ing and may en­cour­age in­ves­ti­ga­tion. You en­joy the light-bulb ef­fect these long talks pro­mote. You could meet with some op­po­si­tion with some of your own ideas. On the whole, this can be a great op­por­tu­nity for all in­volved to widen the scope of un­der­stand­ing.


You may ap­pear very tran­quil this morn­ing. Ev­ery­thing seems to be work­ing to­gether and you may find your­self ex­pres­sive and able to com­mu­ni­cate well. In-depth dis­cus­sions and prob­ing con­ver­sa­tions find you at your top per­for­mance. Your in­ves­tiga­tive abil­i­ties are high. This af­ter­noon you could find your­self in a hobby store buy­ing parts, games or an ad­di­tion to your fa­vorite pas­time. Be­fore you be­gin to play with those hob­bies of yours, clear away some of the things that no longer serve a pur­pose for you. Some other per­son may en­joy the items you no longer use or en­joy–a garage sale or a con­tri­bu­tion to a thrift store is in order. Friends may visit this evening and you find your­self in­volved in the pick­ing-things-up-be­fore-they-come rou­tine.


You may find that you have been cho­sen or vol­un­teered as a guide for some­one or sev­eral peo­ple that do not come to your town very of­ten. Smile–this may be an op­por­tu­nity to grow professionally. Some­one may want to in­vest in real es­tate. This is gen­er­ally a fruit­ful pe­riod for real-es­tate in­vest­ments and you may want to in­vest as well. Your most re­spectable self is show­ing to­day. You have the abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate well with oth­ers. Fam­ily, home and the other roots in your life give you a sense of mis­sion now. There is growth and gain through these things. Be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated and ad­mired for your gifts and tal­ents are pow­er­ful needs. Tak­ing chances can bring big re­wards. A new un­der­stand­ing be­tween loved ones is pos­si­ble.


This is a good time to con­sol­i­date and or­ga­nize your af­fairs or re­ar­range your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion. You may be put in charge of the chil­dren or the yard work or some other chore that does not make up your day but this may call for a fair ex­change and you are ready to help. Gen­eral good feel­ings and a sense of sup­port cre­ate a happy time. You have a clear vi­sion into your own in­ner sense of val­ues: how you ap­pre­ci­ate and love. Take the time this af­ter­noon to re­lax . . . Per­haps a movie or a bi­cy­cle ride through the park would be fun. If you are still sit­ting with chil­dren a game of ball would be fun for all. If the weather is good, con­sider grilling the evening meal. With kids around, they might fetch what you need if you cook a few of their fa­vorite good­ies.


Per­haps this is the best time to think and study, for you have a real ap­pre­ci­a­tion for ideas and thoughts. You may find your­self en­joy­ing a long con­ver­sa­tion with a friend– writ­ing a let­ter, or mak­ing a spe­cial phone call. There are sud­den in­sights into some of the most sen­si­tive and vul­ner­a­ble ar­eas of a puz­zling sit­u­a­tion or per­son to­day. Con­tem­plat­ing what you have heard to­day and un­der­stand­ing that there may be more to the story will get you hap­pily through the day. Dis­pute what you hear too soon, and the truth could be lost, as well as a real un­der­stand­ing of a dif­fi­cult in­di­vid­ual. Be pa­tient and in a few days you will have a new un­der­stand­ing. Ask ques­tions and lis­ten to the an­swers very care­fully. A wish comes true tonight.


There is an in­stinc­tive im­per­a­tive to be in con­trol–pulling the strings. You may be the head of the house­hold or think you are in charge, but oth­ers have their ideas and need your lis­ten­ing ear. This un­der­stand­ing may lead to greater in­ter­est or ex­pe­ri­ence in heal­ing and in­vest­ing and gain­ing bet­ter in­sight into the peo­ple liv­ing around you. You may be re­minded of your var­i­ous re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Check your anx­i­eties at the door and come into a room with your good at­ti­tude. Take care of any busi­ness you had pre­vi­ously post­poned. A meet­ing with some­one older or in au­thor­ity is at hand this af­ter­noon–with a lis­ten­ing and pa­tient at­ti­tude, a sat­is­fac­tory agree­ment can be met. You could find that you are ap­pre­ci­ated for your many achieve­ments.


Re­fine­ment and re­la­tion­ships are the keys to emo­tional sat­is­fac­tion. You may be able to en­joy and value your own life sit­u­a­tion to­day or feel es­pe­cially kind to­wards a friend or loved one. Vis­i­tors in your home may com­pli­ment you on your tastes or be­long­ings. You find your­self other-ori­ented just now, with many thoughts and ideas for a part­ner­ship or a love sit­u­a­tion rather than do­ing things alone. You have a clear vi­sion into your own in­ner sense of val­ues and how you want your life to progress. This is a good time to ex­am­ine and think about what is im­por­tant, per­haps share your ideas. This is a very nice day that is filled with some re­newed ap­pre­ci­a­tion for all that is beau­ti­ful and fine. A se­nior in or around your fam­ily unit be­comes im­por­tant.


Fam­ily, home, rel­a­tives and real es­tate gain your at­ten­tion to­day. You en­joy your fam­ily and want to help pro­vide the best. You con­trib­ute a lot of en­ergy to your fam­ily group that en­cour­ages con­fi­dence and trust. Mat­ters of health come to your at­ten­tion and you may de­cide to be­gin an ex­er­cise pro­gram–per­haps with a loved one. Early morn­ing walks are a good thing. To­day, some­one new may come into your liv­ing sur­round­ings. This could be a birth or the agree­ment to have some­one in your home for a while. You could have com­pas­sion for a stu­dent or a young per­son who opens to you. You are able to dis­pense with the unessen­tial in order to de­velop what is most ba­sic in your en­vi­ron­ment. Plan­ning can go on paper this evening.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

You are very ex­pres­sive and out­go­ing when it comes to your feel­ings and emo­tions; you may even be a lit­tle too sen­si­tive at times. You could, how­ever, be suc­cess­fully work­ing with some new cre­ative ex­pres­sion to re­veal the real you, per­haps through sports, art, theater, etc. Teach­ing, other than your pro­fes­sional work, may be where you find your thoughts to­day. This could be as a tu­tor or a teacher of some cre­ative sub­jects. It may be a good time to teach a young per­son how to ride a bi­cy­cle. Cre­ativ­ity and time to cre­ate are im­por­tant for you. You may find your­self leav­ing things un­done around your liv­ing area so that you can com­plete a craft or art project this af­ter­noon. Your at­ten­tion may be fo­cused on an­i­mals later. Mu­sic fills your home this evening.


Re­li­gious, philo­soph­i­cal and cul­tural mat­ters are likely to have spe­cial appeal. These things have a way of stir­ring your blood. A meet­ing with some­one older or in au­thor­ity gets you think­ing about gain­ing more in­sight through con­tin­ued ed­u­ca­tion. The abil­ity to lis­ten and ex­press your­self in clear mes­sages is most im­por­tant to you. You will be pleased with some of the cour­ses that are of­fered and you might even de­cide to con­tinue your ed­u­ca­tion so that you can teach oth­ers or work in the school sys­tem. This af­ter­noon you can re­lax and just sit back and en­joy what you have–to live life. Your de­sires are strong and you will want to en­joy your­self this evening. There is a ba­sic drive to ap­pre­ci­ate and taste life.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT

Your grasp for many sub­jects and ideas helps you to con­vey im­por­tant mes­sages to oth­ers, par­tic­u­larly when no one else can suc­ceed. Your value sys­tem may re­ceive a chal­lenge from a new in­de­pen­dent streak that wants to break away and try new things. You may not ap­pre­ci­ate the urge to up­set and change things that are mov­ing in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion from your own fo­cus; how­ever, you may feel it is time to be­gin your move. A busi­ness con­sul­tant or em­ployee ad­vi­sor may be a con­sid­er­a­tion for next week. For now, you might en­joy a walk, a lit­tle ex­er­cise– sham­poo the dog. This ac­tiv­ity will help you fo­cus your thoughts into a plan. You have a lot of en­ergy for im­prov­ing your sur­round­ings or life sit­u­a­tions. A loved one is on your side; talk.
