Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


A ma­jor life event that marks the end of a for­ma­tive pe­riod and the be­gin­ning of more in­de­pen­dence takes place soon–per­haps to­day. You are on your own and this marks the start of in­creased re­spon­si­bil­ity and ac­count­abil­ity. This is a time for deep thought, re­view of self, a new chance. Now is the time to make that out­ward push and ride the crest of the wave into fame, ac­count­abil­ity and per­haps, for­tune. It will be hard for you to do wrong, for all the cy­cles are work­ing in your fa­vor. This is also a time when you may marry or take on a new role in the com­mu­nity. Friends and a so­cial life are in or­der and, in gen­eral, an easy and un­trou­bled time. You may help es­cort or vol­un­teer to drive or care for the el­derly a few times a week.


This is a day of great men­tal ac­tiv­ity and height­ened com­mu­ni­ca­tion with oth­ers. In­tel­lec­tu­al­ism, the ex­change of ideas, and the idea of be­ing smart as a fox: these things have a spe­cial ap­peal and im­por­tance. You be­come very much the ex­pert as you search and in­quire into the na­ture of a sub­ject–be it life, sci­en­tific re­search, or what-have-you. Your in­ves­ti­ga­tions will take you into some in­ter­est­ing places. A pas­sion for search­ing, find­ing out and com­mu­ni­cat­ing takes hold. You may even teach oth­ers the art of re­search. You are an elo­quent speaker and the job of teach­ing is likely your task for the day. Peo­ple will un­der­stand just what you mean. This evening is a good time to set­tle down with a good book or take in a movie. Ideas have greater mean­ing.


There is a lot of ea­ger­ness for ac­com­plish­ing just about any­thing you want to ac­com­plish. This can cause you to be a bit im­pa­tient with oth­ers, how­ever. Be aware of your re­sponse to oth­ers and try to think be­fore you speak. You may be look­ing for new ex­pe­ri­ences to­day–ones in which you can ex­pand your knowl­edge. The ex­pe­ri­ence it­self is what is fore­most in your mind, not so much what you can get out of it. You seek con­tact and in­volve­ment, and are not much con­cerned about pri­vate mat­ters. You will find your­self giv­ing way to oth­ers in al­most all sit­u­a­tions, par­tic­u­larly to­day, as you do not want to be slowed by emo­tional frus­tra­tions. Your abil­ity to man­age peo­ple, plus a built-in sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity, is most ap­pre­ci­ated.


New ways to com­mu­ni­cate or an easy man­ner will make con­ver­sa­tions and in­ter­ac­tions go well. New in­ven­tions and cre­ative plans in the news keeps you busy with your own idea. One idea begets an­other idea and one ac­tion causes dif­fer­ent re­ac­tions. This is a day for dis­cov­er­ing, un­cov­er­ing and find­ing what will be needed next. You may find your­self more talk­a­tive and easy­go­ing than usual. Prob­lems could lose some of their def­i­ni­tion and ap­pear less dif­fi­cult. A ca­sual get-to­gether after work with some of your friends may end up as a big party. Do not feel bad about at­tract­ing most of the at­ten­tion in a group–you know a lot of peo­ple and peo­ple love to be with you. You set a good ex­am­ple that is help­ful in many ways; share your beau­ti­ful smile.


This is a very good day for job-re­lated events. This may also be a time of in­tro­spec­tion and you may find your­self let­ting go of plans and projects started in a more out­ward phase, but as yet un­com­pleted. Per­sis­tent, in­tense and se­ri­ous will find your­self lo­cat­ing the root of a par­tic­u­lar prob­lem. You look for ways to reroute, block or get rid of the cause! Too many ques­tions keep com­ing up about trans­porta­tion, and this is a com­mu­ni­ca­tion you look for­ward to hav­ing with fam­ily mem­bers or house­mates. This evening an un­ex­pected so­cial op­por­tu­nity finds you work­ing to make a good im­pres­sion. Some friendly in­di­vid­ual that you may not have seen in some time could sur­prise you with some great story that you can will want to know more about.


If the game of poker were the game of life, you would have the win­ning hand to­day. You can con­tinue to hold the win­ning or up­per hand by keep­ing that poker face dur­ing ne­go­ti­a­tions. You have an in­born sense of mass psy­chol­ogy, what the pub­lic wants and dreams of, and your ideas or pro­jec­tions are usu­ally on tar­get. Fi­nan­cial spec­u­la­tion or deal­ings with part­ners can soon see pos­i­tive re­sults. You can project im­ages of what is de­sir­able or ideal, us­ing words and ideas that are en­chant­ing and spell­bind­ing. You would make a great film di­rec­tor. Cir­cum­stances should work to­gether to help bring out your ideals–make it eas­ier to make your dreams real. You may be test­ing and sep­a­rat­ing what is not im­por­tant. Have pa­tience with young peo­ple this evening.


This is a great time to be vo­cal in the work­place. Oth­ers may look to you for tech­ni­cal writ­ten so­lu­tions but now you must be vo­cal and add your ap­proval or dis­ap­proval to a par­tic­u­lar vote. In­de­pen­dence, as well as any­thing un­usual, is val­ued. There are all sorts of op­por­tu­ni­ties open­ing up that will help you to stretch your ca­pa­bil­i­ties and ad­vance. The com­forts in your life are im­prov­ing and luck is also on your side. You may en­joy get­ting away from your usual rou­tine this af­ter­noon in or­der to par­take in some­thing dif­fer­ent for a change. You might con­sider tak­ing a short drive or walk with a friend. Per­haps you had a gift cer­tifi­cate that has been burn­ing a hole in your pocket and this af­ter­noon is the time to en­joy the gift. Is­sues work out smoothly.


You could be in the pub­lic eye where your pro­fes­sion is con­cerned. Peo­ple just au­to­mat­i­cally drift to­ward you when ques­tions arise in the work­place. You are kind enough to tell some­one where there is a mis­take and how to fix it with­out crit­i­ciz­ing. You have good com­mu­ni­ca­tion with higher-ups and may find an in­vi­ta­tion to lunch prof­itable. Your tim­ing should be per­fect and those around you should find you most spon­ta­neous. This af­ter­noon a friend may help you with some im­por­tant mat­ters. This could in­clude teach­ing you some new artis­tic tech­nique, try­ing a new recipe or learn­ing how to re­pair some­thing bro­ken. Your un­selfish at­ti­tude with oth­ers is mag­netic; a fan­tas­tic some­one wants to treat you spe­cial this evening.


You seem to have a bet­ter fo­cus to­day on how to com­plete some re­oc­cur­ring dif­fi­cult project. You can be­come clut­tered oc­ca­sion­ally but you are learn­ing to fo­cus and thin out the unim­por­tant clut­ter–whether it is on your desk or in your style of work­ing. Cor­rect choices and the best path for you may be clearer now than be­fore. You seem more con­fi­dent and your com­mu­ni­ca­tion to oth­ers shows def­i­ni­tion and strength. Lead­er­ship qual­i­ties are show­ing and a higher-up is ready to give you the chal­lenges you ask for now. This is a good time to do some writ­ing about your per­sonal goals. Re­lax this evening–per­haps din­ner out would be en­joy­able.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

The chal­lenges you face this morn­ing will be short term. The emo­tional sup­port you think you need will have to come from your own con­fi­dence. Some sort of tem­po­rary ob­sta­cle is present–you must clear your mind and work through the prob­lem–you may feel frus­trated but all is tem­po­rary. Chal­leng­ing au­thor­ity and rock­ing the boat will not play in your fa­vor. Old pat­terns of or­ga­ni­za­tion and power are ripe for an in­no­va­tive ap­proach and it may be good to com­mu­ni­cate your ideas by the writ­ten word. Rad­i­cal and in­ven­tive ideas hold the key to re­al­iz­ing your am­bi­tions and ad­vanc­ing your sta­tus–a shakeup could be in the works. Do not ex­pect a re­sponse quickly . . . Con­fer­ences are needed. An­i­mals hold your at­ten­tion this evening.


The peo­ple with whom you work may be very sur­prised at your ease in dis­cussing some very tough sub­jects to­day. You have re­tained quite a lot from your own ob­ser­vance and may be able to in­struct oth­ers in im­por­tant mat­ters. You are very mo­ti­vated to im­prove your busi­ness or work arena now. You have a lot of en­ergy as well as a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude. There is a feel­ing of be­ing pleas­antly re­laxed and con­tented emo­tion­ally. Loved ones and other peo­ple and trea­sures dear to your heart are em­pha­sized this af­ter­noon. You may be help­ing a young per­son with home­work or there may be an op­por­tu­nity to guide some­one in mat­ters of im­por­tance later to­day. Be­ing ap­pre­ci­ated and ad­mired brings you a great deal of sat­is­fac­tion.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT

Events make it easy for you to be in­ven­tive, have break­throughs and find so­lu­tions to old prob­lems. You may find your­self able to im­ple­ment your ideas and put them into prac­tice. You work well with oth­ers in a team ef­fort. You are ap­pre­ci­ated and may find your­self in de­mand of­ten. You suc­ceed and move ahead by us­ing your mind and thoughts. Also, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and re­search in all forms could be a key area for ca­reer growth. You could come up with new so­lu­tions or in­ven­tions. You are in a rare mood of self-en­joy­ment this evening and can ap­pre­ci­ate your own bet­ter qual­i­ties. You may see value in tak­ing care of a se­nior fam­ily mem­ber. Old emo­tional wounds heal at this time. Smile, this is an ac­tiv­ity that is most con­ta­gious.
