Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

LI­BRA 23 SEP 22 OCT Like wheat or grass blow­ing and bend­ing in the wind, you cre­ate ways to make projects and cir­cum­stances bend to your will; things have a way of work­ing out smoothly. Here is a real op­por­tu­nity to com­plete any per­sonal projects and work out dif­fi­cul­ties. You should be able to get your ideas across to family or friends with ease at this time. To­day and to­mor­row are won­der­ful times to en­joy a short trip or be­gin a va­ca­tion. Good feel­ings and a sense of sup­port and har­mony make this a happy time; you are flex­i­ble as well as witty and peo­ple laugh and are merry in your pres­ence. There are mak­ings for a bright and witty day to­day. Adding to a char­ity bag with a few old things brings back mem­o­ries and helps to grace­fully move you for­ward.


You could give or ob­tain a loan from a family mem­ber to­day. In choos­ing whether to take or to give this loan, you con­sider the per­son and his or her past. You might ad­mit or ad­vise that rainy days and cel­e­bra­tions are good rea­sons for a sav­ings ac­count. You have a lot of op­ti­mism for what­ever goals you set be­fore your­self at this time. A new hobby may have your at­ten­tion most of the rest of the day. Af­ter you get re­ally good at this hobby, it is pos­si­ble that you could use this hobby to make a lit­tle ex­tra in­come from time to time. To­day you are either a good stu­dent or a good teacher. Self-con­trol and set­ting lim­its are im­por­tant. Later to­day is for e-mail and phone calls. Tonight you may en­joy a pop­u­lar movie with a spe­cial friend.


Pro­fes­sional ad­vice this satur­day is ad­vised. Fi­nan­cial savvy and a practical turn of mind are qual­i­ties that take on greater im­por­tance in your life now. This could be a real-es­tate sit­u­a­tion or an auc­tion of some sort. You are a wheeler-dealer and seem to have a knack for know­ing when to pur­chase the best buys. You also play the role of a fa­cil­i­ta­tor and this can be a re­ward­ing day. You value fair­ness in all things and go out of your way to be just. You ap­pre­ci­ate oth­ers who have been suc­cess­ful and may sur­round your­self with those in power–be they politi­cians, of­fi­cials, etc. Your sense of qual­ity and dis­crim­i­na­tion may amount to some sort of liveli­hood for you. You could make your liv­ing with your good taste. Mu­sic and ro­mance are avail­able tonight.


Be­gin­ning a diet is fa­vored to­day. Also on the list of things to do are the hol­i­day list-mak­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. Now is a great time to shop and find just the right thing for the right per­son on your list. It is also a good time to stock up on the canned goods that you won’t have to pur­chase all at one time when those spe­cial dates ap­proach. Any money- or time­sav­ing plan is a good one. Loved ones and other peo­ple or things dear to your heart are em­pha­sized at this time in your life. Later to­day is for you and if you know of a mas­sage ther­a­pist or health food store, this would be a good time to see what they have to of­fer. Re­lax now, you can show off your best self at a party later. A con­cert, civic af­fair or per­haps live theater can be en­joyed tonight.

AQUAR­IUS 20 JAN 18 FEB A de­sire for the stim­u­la­tion of new ideas and ideals is em­pha­sized now. You may ap­pear very at-ease to­day. Ev­ery­thing seems to be work­ing to­gether; you may find your­self ex­pres­sive and out­go­ing. New friends and an in­volve­ment in fun ac­tiv­i­ties make you hope­ful that you can meet again. You can agree to reg­u­lar meet­ings with th­ese friends. You and your friends en­joy all the same ac­tiv­i­ties and the grand thing about it all is that you are easy­go­ing with each other. There are golf, tennis, bi­cy­cle tours, ed­u­ca­tional treks, etc. You may find that at this time of the year, some of you like to make things to send to a se­nior home or some other place where peo­ple need blan­kets or gloves to keep warm. The best part of to­day is that feel­ing of be­ing use­ful to oth­ers.


There is a feel­ing that time is slip­ping away be­fore you even get up this morn­ing. There may not be enough hours in the day to ac­com­plish all you want to do. Be fair to your­self and make a list with the most im­por­tant chores . Set a stop time for ad­di­tional projects and give up the rest of your list if family mem­bers need your at­ten­tion. When your friends call, con­sider trad­ing lists; laugh­ter can then be en­joyed. Make a fun project out of your chores. There may be some paint­ing or re­pair of some sort. You find your­self talkative and quick-wit­ted. While work­ing through your list, you may find the time good for think­ing over your own af­fairs. You may have an in­sight­ful con­ver­sa­tion with a se­nior mem­ber of the family that is en­cour­ag­ing.


Your at­ten­tion is drawn to lovers, chil­dren and other peo­ple or things dear to your heart. Be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated and ad­mired for the way you share and give of your­self is a pow­er­ful need and you en­joy re­turn­ing the same ap­pre­ci­a­tion to oth­ers. Your ap­pre­ci­a­tion of oth­ers and the beauty in your life as well as the love of those around you are where you will be re­freshed and re­laxed. This af­ter­noon there is time to bust out of your thoughts and try some­thing new; per­haps you have never been to a flea mar­ket or a farmer’s mar­ket. There is also much com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween friends. Philo­soph­i­cal dis­agree­ments can be­come overblown, how­ever–care­ful. Family mat­ters get top pri­or­ity this evening. Play a sort of bank­ing or shop­ping game to teach a child.


You will pros­per through new insights, in­ven­tions and an in­de­pen­dent point of view. Med­i­ta­tion and plan­ning can only be pro­duc­tive if you write down your ideas, let them de­velop and be­gin to plan. Per­haps you have an art you would like to dis­play. Any­time is a good time to be­gin the process of ex­press­ing your art. This may mean land­scap­ing, mu­sic, draw­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, light­ing, pot­tery, etc. You can ex­pect a lit­tle boost, some sort of ex­tra sup­port or recog­ni­tion from some new ob­server. Through your own abil­ity to fol­low through and be ex­pres­sive, you will be help­ing oth­ers. You could find that you are ad­mired for your tal­ents and for how quickly you show the re­sults of your ef­fort. If you are not with a mate at this time, you will be soon.

GEM­INI 21 MAY 21 JUN Some­times you en­joy the feel­ing that any­thing is pos­si­ble. Many days, en­cour­ages pro­duc­tive ef­forts, and you busy your­self un­in­ten­tion­ally im­press­ing the peo­ple around you. Through your work you en­cour­age oth­ers to rise above the de­mands of the day and achieve your reach. There is a kind of rest­less­ness for great emo­tional or phys­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ences. Oth­ers cheer you on and wish they had your at­ti­tude for most any chal­lenge. You are able to dis­pense with some of the unessen­tial and de­velop what is most es­sen­tial in your en­vi­ron­ment. You en­cour­age bet­ter sup­port be­cause you are flex­i­ble, agree­able, se­cu­rity con­scious and re­li­able. You look for­ward to the art of snow ski­ing, wa­ter polo, or some other ad­ven­ture this win­ter.


Mem­o­ries come to the fore­front of your mind as you work through some of your chores to­day. An old pic­ture al­bum or some school au­to­graph book may come to your at­ten­tion. You may be pre­par­ing your place for com­pany or for the pos­si­bil­ity of pro­vid­ing a place to freshen up be­fore a re­u­nion or a spe­cial so­cial event. Meet­ing at your place be­fore an event is a good thing as it re­news a close­ness from long ago. What­ever the case, you en­joy hav­ing peo­ple in your home and pro­vid­ing the ne­ces­si­ties for their com­fort–peo­ple en­joy your hospi­tal­ity. You have done all this prepa­ra­tion work be­cause you en­joy do­ing it and if you re­ally en­joy pro­vid­ing ba­sic needs and spe­cial items for your guests, you might think of in­vest­ing in a bed and break­fast.


You will be pleased at the progress you have made to­day–just take a look! This is a grat­i­fy­ing day. This may mean an art project or per­haps you are re­fur­bish­ing the old family home­stead. Sup­port and praise should be com­ing, not only from family but also from neigh­bors and the gen­eral pub­lic as well. Some civic duty may be in or­der–your ideas are not chal­lenged. You are right where you need to be at this time. You could have in­sight into your own feel­ings and in­ner, spir­i­tual na­ture. A lit­tle play time is in or­der this af­ter­noon, per­haps a din­ner with friends later this evening. Some­one may sug­gest a camp­ing trip or a group get-to­gether–what­ever you are in the mood to do–oth­ers will fol­low. You feel healthy and nat­u­ral..


Be open to those around you–lis­ten to their words. Some­one could chal­lenge you on a very sen­si­tive is­sue but this is the op­por­tu­nity you have been wait­ing for as it gives you the open­ing to try out some new com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­niques. You have some insights that will help oth­ers as well as your­self to­day. Your friends are very pleased with the at­ti­tude changes you have de­vel­oped over the last few months. New tools for com­mu­ni­ca­tion, es­pe­cially with a dis­agree­able per­son, are prov­ing quite suc­cess­ful. Har­mo­nious ties to oth­ers are what you yearn for; re­fine­ment and ele­gance are what you seek. The ideal part­ner­ship, the per­fect bal­ance, the high­est stan­dards of truth and beauty–th­ese are some of the things that quicken your pulse.
