Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


Play­ing sports boosts your con­fi­dence and you look for friends or a team to join to­day. This could also mean you call up a friend and play ten­nis or golf. The de­mand for your skills or tal­ents in­ten­si­fies and you be­come aware of new op­tions for pas­time plea­sure. Your home en­vi­ron­ment and sur­round­ings re­ceive your at­ten­tion this evening. A mate or close friend may com­plain that you do not spend enough time to­gether. You are flat­tered and can find some time to plan or en­gage in the in­ter­ac­tions re­quired to deepen this re­la­tion­ship. You may teach your mate or friend to honor his or her in­di­vid­u­al­ism–per­haps both of you talk about goals each of you have for your own per­sonal achieve­ments. A young per­son will make you laugh this evening.


This is not per­haps the best time to make im­por­tant de­ci­sions that af­fect your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or life cir­cum­stances. Oth­ers may chal­lenge your ideas or au­thor­ity. This is a much bet­ter time to re­lax and plan for the busy days ahead. Divvy up the chores so that no one per­son has too many things to do be­fore a spe­cial day and of course, do your own share. If you are go­ing away for the win­ter, there will still be some ar­range­ments to be made. You may be sought af­ter for your guid­ance re­gard­ing travel and prepa­ra­tion con­sid­er­a­tions this af­ter­noon. You will be able to han­dle most mat­ters, es­pe­cially if you have ar­ranged your day so that you do not have a lot of stress. Some pleas­ant sur­prises this evening will be the re­ward for your choices dur­ing the day.


What were nor­mally clear ideas be­fore to­day may be­come a bit fuzzy at this time–it may be hard to be log­i­cal. This may be a good time for list mak­ing. See­ing both sides of an is­sue and fig­ur­ing out res­o­lu­tions to op­pos­ing views are the things that take on the most im­por­tance in your life as well. You may get in­sights into your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or sup­port sys­tem. There are new ideas about your past his­tory and new ap­proaches to es­tab­lished facts. You could re­ceive un­ex­pected help or sup­port from those around you for what­ever you want to ac­com­plish. Mak­ing a good im­pres­sion and putting your best foot for­ward take on greater im­por­tance this evening, par­tic­u­larly if you are try­ing to im­press a loved one. Ro­mance takes cen­ter stage tonight.


You de­cide to clean and work at pol­ish­ing floors or some other work that takes high en­ergy and you get much ac­com­plished. It is time to re­ally get down to the busi­ness of clear­ing away the things that no longer serve you. Now there is room for new and bet­ter projects. Health, food and phys­i­cal con­di­tion come un­der scru­tiny and you work to give this much at­ten­tion to­day. You make a big ef­fort to pick out those fat-free foods that will help you feel bet­ter; care­ful, some of them are full of sugar that turns to fat. You can ex­pect a lit­tle boost, some sort of ex­tra sup­port or recog­ni­tion from those around you for what­ever you choose to do to­day. This evening there is an op­por­tu­nity to re­lax with your loved ones. You may be the win­ner at a card game this evening.


This is a won­der­ful time to add to a col­lec­tion or to sell part of a col­lec­tion. A city li­brary could be hav­ing an an­nual sale and this may give you the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase some old edi­tion for your own pri­vate book col­lec­tion. You draw a sense of se­cu­rity from your friends and so­cial in­volve­ment this af­ter­noon. Shar­ing some fun ac­tiv­ity with your friends may put you at your most imag­i­na­tive, at least when it comes to ideas and thoughts. You could be trav­el­ing a short dis­tance to a craft or art show and this will cer­tainly fill your day with good mem­o­ries that last a life­time. This is a day full of fun times and op­por­tu­ni­ties to build firm re­la­tion­ships. Nosy neigh­bors may give you some frus­trat­ing mo­ments this evening–this is short-term–have pa­tience.


Do not try to prove a point to­day–oth­ers hear what you have to say but may not im­me­di­ately re­spond the way you want. Clear com­mu­ni­ca­tion is im­por­tant to you. You may find your­self lis­ten­ing care­fully to what oth­ers have to say. Your tim­ing should be per­fect and those around you should find you ready for new ad­ven­tures. Ev­ery­thing con­spires to re­veal you at your best, par­tic­u­larly in so­cial sit­u­a­tions. Emo­tional se­cu­rity and a sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing are the is­sues felt in­stinc­tively now. You want roots and you crave a sense of in­ti­mate con­nec­tion. There is a chance to un­der­stand those around you and to have a spe­cial time with some­one you love. Gen­eral good feel­ings make this a happy time.


A touch of fi­nan­cial ge­nius can re­sult in phe­nom­e­nally suc­cess­ful in­vest­ments. One way or an­other, changes in your fi­nan­cial sta­tus are in the off­ing–taxes, in­vest­ments, debts or lega­cies play a part in this. In­ter­ac­tion with other peo­ple will be elec­tric, ex­cit­ing and un­pre­dictable the rest of this year. Charisma is high­lighted now–you de­velop a deeper un­der­stand­ing of many of life’s mys­ter­ies and taboos. You may dis­cover new facts about your fam­ily tree. There is talk of tra­di­tions and fam­ily. There are old diaries and pho­tos for you to en­joy and or­ga­nize into a fam­ily al­bum. You have a clear vi­sion into your own in­ner sense of val­ues, how you ap­pre­ci­ate and love. This is a good time to ex­am­ine and think about what is most im­por­tant to your fu­ture.


This is a good day to get things done, es­pe­cially around your liv­ing area. You have a sense about bal­ance and how to main­tain bal­ance in your life. You are suc­cess­ful in what­ever task you choose. There may be some re­pair or yard work you will want to do be­fore the win­ter be­gins. You may be close to fin­ish­ing a re­mod­el­ing job this week­end. This af­ter­noon is a good time to en­joy the out-of-doors and per­haps, ex­er­cise a bit. Per­haps you and the young peo­ple in your fam­ily, or among your friends, will en­joy one or two of the fol­low­ing: horse­back rid­ing, fish­ing, tar­get shoot­ing, darts, etc. Your per­sonal charisma is high­lighted this evening and you and a loved one may en­joy re­lax­ing in a lo­cal restau­rant. You could be an­tic­i­pat­ing a child soon.


Ob­tain­ing and ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion takes on more mean­ing now. Be­ing more in­volved with a mean­ing­ful group of peo­ple like close neigh­bors or fam­ily mem­bers sat­is­fies a deep emo­tional need. Com­mu­ni­cat­ing feel­ings be­comes more im­por­tant now. A new cy­cle be­gins for you–sig­nal­ing a strong in­ter­est in re­la­tion­ships, so­cial con­nec­tions and the arts–on a more in­tel­lec­tual level than in the past. A fam­ily de­bate helps to show off your prob­lem-solv­ing abil­i­ties. You are able to see both sides of an is­sue–the sit­u­a­tion may call out for un­der­stand­ing and com­pro­mise. Mar­riage and other close re­la­tion­ships give rise to great ex­pec­ta­tions now, as a new cy­cle gets un­der­way in your life. This is a time to en­joy and ap­pre­ci­ate your ties to other.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Your imag­i­na­tion may mis­lead you to the point of mo­ti­vat­ing you in a wrong di­rec­tion. Your re­al­is­tic think­ing could be ob­scured by some sup­posed spir­i­tual or hu­man­i­tar­ian ideal. Given time to think through some par­tic­u­lar sit­u­a­tion, you may feel you should re­verse your path. This will be a time of in­tro­spec­tion–you may find your­self elim­i­nat­ing some of the plans and projects yet un­com­pleted. Writ­ing and mak­ing lists of projects and steps to com­plete a goal will bring about a good fo­cus. List mak­ing could also elim­i­nate false starts. This af­ter­noon you may find your­self help­ing a young per­son. Whether this is with home­work or just lis­ten­ing to them, you ex­press your com­pas­sion and will­ing­ness to help.


Se­crets have a short half-life around you–you have them out in a wink of an eye. You are bril­liant when it comes to in­sights into the mind–psy­chol­ogy and mo­ti­va­tion. Your in­ten­sity is ob­vi­ous and some may pre­fer to keep their dis­tance rather than sub­ject them­selves to your laser eye. Noth­ing is passed over with­out be­ing ex­am­ined in­side and out­side. Some­one may chal­lenge your ideas or good taste. You al­ways seem ap­pre­cia­tive of oth­ers and can cre­ate a pos­i­tive out­come to most any dif­fi­culty. This is, how­ever, not the best time to shop, choose col­ors, etc. Charisma, self-trans­for­ma­tion, the de­vel­op­ment of per­sonal power: these things play a big­ger role in your life now, more than ever be­fore. Re­mem­ber that tiny causes can lead to big ef­fects.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT

Don’t be sur­prised if you are not in top men­tal gear this day. You may feel more like shar­ing some time with your loved one, or with close friends. Per­haps this would be a good time to visit the zoo or in­volve your­self in some fall neigh­bor­hood ac­tiv­ity where you can feel you are a part of a team or group. Close re­la­tion­ships will cer­tainly take on more emo­tional depth now. It is pos­si­ble that you are cling­ing to some re­cent hap­pen­ing in the past and need time to work through some feel­ings. Some hon­est soul-search­ing as well as be­ing with those you love and who love you are the best ac­tions to take at this time. There is an op­por­tu­nity to un­der­stand and deepen a friend­ship this evening. Gen­eral good feel­ings and a sense of har­mony make this a happy time.
