Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

SCORPIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV Some­one in the work­place could be just itch­ing to cause trou­ble. There could be some ten­sion or sense of op­po­si­tion re­quir­ing com­pro­mise or ne­go­ti­a­tion on your part. An op­por­tu­nity for un­der­stand­ing and even growth is avail­able now. Cir­cum­stances could dic­tate your tak­ing ac­tion. Be very care­ful with your words and you will come out a win­ner–all day long. An im­por­tant re­la­tion­ship, per­haps with an older per­son or some­one in author­ity, may come into fo­cus this af­ter­noon. You feel healthy and nat­u­ral and may de­cide to en­cour­age some­one around you to join you in some ex­er­cise rou­tine. A light din­ner fol­lowed by a flam­ing fruit dessert can be an im­pres­sive way to en­joy your evening. Fam­ily, home and your sense of roots are ful­fill­ing.

SAGITTARIUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC To­day, you may have a great deal of dif­fi­culty keep­ing your­self quiet while a co-worker learns a new task. You could an­nounce that you would be happy to help if needed. Now, go about your busi­ness as usual and then later, the two of you will get along in pos­i­tive ways. Let the day take care of it­self. This af­ter­noon you will de­cide to use your en­er­gies in mak­ing wise de­ci­sions for your­self. Li­brary book­shelves are stacked with new books or movies that you have been want­ing to en­joy. Later this evening, the art of con­ver­sa­tion with a friend im­proves and is pos­i­tive. Con­sider sign­ing up for a new cre­ative and fun class or cre­ative cook­ing or gardening video. If you en­ter a con­test to­day, you will be pleased with the out­come.

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN Dis­cov­er­ing what you truly be­lieve in–fight­ing for it, even–is a high per­sonal pri­or­ity. Re­li­gion, law, pol­i­tics, travel and higher ed­u­ca­tion are some of the are­nas where this takes place. This is a time of test­ing the lim­its to see how far you can go. Cir­cum­stances should work to­gether to make your dreams real. Come on; be brave–this a good time to toot your own horn, so to speak. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and re­search in all forms could be a key area for your ca­reer growth. You are needed at a com­mu­nity meet­ing this evening. You can ap­pre­ci­ate an imag­i­na­tive ap­proach and may value fu­tur­is­tic ideas. You may en­joy a good visit with your friends later. Be care­ful–there is a chance you could fall asleep read­ing a book tonight.

AQUARIUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB Some­one could chal­lenge you on a very sen­si­tive is­sue this morn­ing. This could re­sult in an in­tense dis­cus­sion. You may find your­self an­a­lyz­ing cer­tain sit­u­a­tions. You might call this a great chal­lenge for your in­ge­nu­ity. When you get through these sit­u­a­tions grace­fully, you will know your strength. Your cur­rent po­si­tion may de­mand some reeval­u­a­tion. It may be very hard for you to com­mu­ni­cate what you mean to oth­ers un­til you cre­ate some time to think through things. Your abil­ity to or­ga­nize and see things through to the end will be your guide and will prove suc­cess­ful. This evening, close re­la­tion­ships will take on more im­por­tance. Feel­ing cared for and needed is an im­por­tant part of this evening.

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR You have an in­ner need for com­mu­ni­ca­tion of all kinds and may have too many ac­tiv­i­ties dis­rupt­ing your con­cen­tra­tion just now. You can be all over the place, try­ing to make one more con­nec­tion. Speak­ing and writ­ing come nat­u­rally. You have a need for lots of va­ri­ety but a change of pace can be a bit try­ing. This af­ter­noon the work­place will seem to set­tle into a good rou­tine–your man­age­ment skills pro­duce a sense of fo­cus and rhythm. You put forth a lot of ef­fort in your ca­reer re­spon­si­bil­i­ties to­day. Outer cir­cum­stances are fa­vor­able and it should be easy for you to push for­ward in pro­jects and in all as­pects of your life. Things may seem al­most mag­i­cal in the way they work out in your fa­vor this evening. Ro­mance is pos­si­ble.

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR Your need to be re­spected may be­come an emo­tion­ally charged is­sue to­day. You de­velop a knack for or­ga­niz­ing things and peo­ple, as a sense of am­bi­tion and prac­ti­cal­ity takes hold. Work, achieve­ment and am­bi­tion mean a lot to you now. A pe­riod of in­tel­lec­tual cre­ativ­ity has dawned in your life; ex­press­ing your­self with lots of sin­cer­ity is im­por­tant to you. Beat­ing the odds through clev­er­ness is ap­peal­ing and may lead to an in­ter­est in all kinds of fi­nan­cial spec­u­la­tion. A lover or child who is bright and ar­tic­u­late plays a big role in your life this evening. You are just plain witty now and the ideas roll off your tongue. This is a real time for com­mu­ni­ca­tion–by phone, let­ter or in per­son. You may want to walk, bi­cy­cle or just sim­ply ex­er­cise this evening.

TAURUS 20 APR – 20 MAY This is not a great time to at­tempt to get your ideas across to oth­ers. You may find your­self feel­ing blocked and un­able to ex­press your­self very well. You may have some ideas about ways in which to or­ga­nize a par­tic­u­lar pro­ject. There is an op­por­tu­nity to get some in­sight into some of your prob­lems and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that may prove of great value in the years to come. Break up old habits. This is a time when in­sights into your ca­reer and prac­ti­cal skills may reach a high point. A new, dif­fer­ent and pos­si­bly un­con­ven­tional ap­proach to man­age­ment in­for­ma­tion gives you real con­trol over your work sit­u­a­tion. This will also give you a foot in the door to fu­ture work op­por­tu­ni­ties. Writ­ten pre­sen­ta­tions give you pos­i­tive recog­ni­tion now.

GEMINI 21 MAY – 21 JUN ‘the great wheel of change may ap­pear to move at a snail’s pace or even grind to a halt. This is a time dur­ing which ev­ery­thing you do may seem more dif­fi­cult–could be tough. To help things move a bit faster, move your at­ten­tion to­ward a part-time job. You have a lot of in­sight to help you in what­ever sort of en­deavor you seek to ac­com­plish. A con­sid­er­a­tion would be to tu­tor or to teach in some com­mu­nity col­lege night classes. There may not be a part-time that is listed but you can cre­ate one. You could even be a tourist guide. You will find that your friends are par­tic­u­larly sup­port­ive of what­ever you de­cide. They may even help with sugges­tions or just keep you com­pany through some re­search. You will gain from the sup­port you re­ceive.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL Your ca­reer may be un­der a lot of pres­sure just now. Look around–you may not be the only one be­ing tested. Take a deep breath and con­tinue your work as usual. Main­tain­ing a bal­ance and keep­ing crit­i­cism to a low tone, you will fare well. You will also have less of a prob­lem in your work progress if you take your reg­u­lar breaks. You will find suc­cess­ful end re­sults to your ef­forts. It’s wis­dom, not nec­es­sar­ily knowl­edge, which counts most. This af­ter­noon you may find that some friends want to play some gam­bling games. You may ac­tu­ally do quite well if you take lit­tle steps. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties to read, en­joy a hobby or just gen­er­ally re­lax later this evening. You en­joy the com­pany of your loved one tonight.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG It is easy for you to push for­ward in pro­jects and in all ar­eas of your life. Things may seem al­most mag­i­cal in the way they work out in your fa­vor. This is a great time to or­ga­nize and get things ac­com­plished. Oth­ers may find you at your most imag­i­na­tive, at least when it comes to ideas and thoughts. Right now, you have an op­por­tu­nity to tran­scend the every­day thoughts and soar into more cos­mic or eter­nal mus­ings. This is a great time to be with oth­ers and to work to­gether. It could be easy for high-sound­ing ideas and false ideals to mis­lead you into mak­ing ca­reer or vo­ca­tional de­ci­sions that are wrong for you. Be care­ful that you do not in­volve your­self in some plan to mis­guide or de­ceive an­other. Ro­mance is pos­si­ble this evening.

VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP Mak­ing your mark on the world has a spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for you. Achieve­ment and author­ity take on greater im­por­tance at this time. Ad­min­is­ter­ing to peo­ple and pro­jects will be­come cen­tral to your life­style. Am­bi­tious schemes and the pur­suit of suc­cess and sta­tus take on a high pri­or­ity. This brings a fo­cus on the prac­ti­cal, the suc­cess­ful, the prag­matic–what­ever it takes to get ahead in the end. The meek may in­herit the earth, but the shrewd will col­lect the rent. Your work or ca­reer is in har­mony with the rest of your life. You could gain from sub­or­di­nates or young peo­ple now. This af­ter­noon you will find your­self teach­ing young peo­ple the finer art of cook­ing with a nice choice of sub­sti­tu­tions as well as safety. Per­haps you have pur­chased a new stove.

LIBRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT This is a good time to or­ga­nize and dis­ci­pline your mind and meth­ods of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Per­haps this is also a time for se­ri­ous think­ing. Ed­u­ca­tion and stud­ies of all kinds may be in or­der now. This is a time for per­spi­ra­tion in the idea depart­ment. Sci­ence, phi­los­o­phy or re­li­gion is likely to seem as if it holds the ul­ti­mate an­swers. There does not seem to be an end to your search for the right words, just fan­tas­tic quests and good re­search. Ide­o­log­i­cal cru­sades can set your head spin­ning; dis­tant jour­neys can stir your soul. Avoid le­gal en­tan­gle­ments as much as pos­si­ble. This evening you may touch upon very emo­tional parts of you and find your­self an­a­lyz­ing and psy­cho­an­a­lyz­ing. Care­ful–you may fall into some pity party.
