Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


This is a good day to get things done. You are a unique in­di­vid­ual, with tal­ents that do not com­pare to many–think pos­i­tive. You are able to ap­ply real dis­ci­pline or or­ga­ni­za­tion. You find your­self in a very prac­ti­cal mood and work­ing with, in­stead of against, your­self. You have a yearn­ing to move to­ward the more chal­leng­ing is­sues soon. Con­sider your choices care­fully today be­cause at some hour you may be con­tem­plat­ing some big changes for your busi­ness. You are in a good po­si­tion to add your ad­vice or guid­ance for those who ask. Emo­tional se­cu­rity, a sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing turns your at­ten­tion to the home front this af­ter­noon. Mak­ing phone calls, pay­ing bills and writ­ing let­ters hold you close to home this evening.


Some­thing you say or com­mu­ni­cate may go against your own best in­ter­ests. You could clash with an older per­son or one in au­thor­ity at this time. Not per­haps a good time for you to try out new things or break away from an old rou­tine. You might say this is not the day to do two things at once. Slow your pace at bit and you will find you will have ac­com­plished much more than you thought pos­si­ble by day’s end. In­tense feel­ings and strong at­tach­ments make for hot times and you are fiercely loyal, if not some­times posses­sive. You are not at all su­per­fi­cial but al­ways get to the heart of things. This is good for busi­ness and pol­i­tics, par­tic­u­larly at work. You have a sense for power, wealth and pas­sion. Ac­cept the changes that are be­ing asked of you at this time.


You may be moved to ap­pre­ci­ate and dis­cover the beauty in your life and in those around you. At the same time, every­thing could take on added value. Be care­ful that you do not over­spend or in­dulge too much just now. Travel and other con­tacts with far­away peo­ple come to your at­ten­tion and have pos­si­bil­i­ties this win­ter. Such things bring love and gain in one way or another. Higher ed­u­ca­tion, philo­soph­i­cal or reli­gious con­tacts could have a part in mak­ing good things hap­pen. Fam­ily, home, rel­a­tives and real es­tate will all be a part of the pos­i­tive changes in your life. You have a keen in­ter­est in what makes things tick and who or what pulls the strings. With your knowl­edge and skills, you fig­ure out ways to make your nest egg grow.


In-depth dis­cus­sions and prob­ing con­ver­sa­tions find you at your men­tal best. Your an­a­lyt­i­cal abil­i­ties are at a high point. You can re­ally get your thoughts and ideas across– good com­mu­ni­ca­tion. It is time to put your plans to work and move for­ward with your ca­reer goals. You may find that a co-worker or part­ner will join in and as­cend the cor­po­rate lad­der with you. A friend from long ago may con­tact you this af­ter­noon. Much con­ver­sa­tion over old times may find you look­ing through the scrap­book this evening. Emo­tional se­cu­rity and a sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing are the is­sues that are felt in­stinc­tively now. You may want what oth­ers have but you may also de­cide you like the way you have set up your own life to run.


This is a time when ideas and com­mu­ni­ca­tion of all kinds will as­sume in­creased im­por­tance. Your mind could be quite clear and nat­u­ral just now. Ideas are flow­ing and could come with ease. You have a knack for putting the feel­ings of a group into words and may serve as a teacher or spokesper­son. If you have ever con­sid­ered a vo­ca­tion in teach­ing, now may be the time to do some­thing about it. You might even con­sider volunteering to teach an adult read­ing class. You may be able to en­cour­age a friend to join you in this ven­ture. Hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts can af­fect your work and life-path. You have an op­por­tu­nity to take con­trol and be­come more dis­ci­plined. Friends, group projects and com­mu­nity concerns could play a key role in your ca­reer di­rec­tion.


Good prac­ti­cal job-re­lated thoughts and ideas are avail­able as usual. Fig­ur­ing things out is one of the things that take on spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance. You have a strong urge to or­ga­nize things today. There is much men­tal busy­work. The abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate with su­pe­ri­ors or de­scribe what you see brings at­ten­tion to what you say. Your tim­ing should be per­fect for just about any project you want to at­tempt. Be care­ful not to push too hard as you could be­come too dom­i­nat­ing. You may feel the need to care for oth­ers or to have them care for you. You sense what is needed and you move for­ward to take care of the es­sen­tials or to lend a help­ful hand. Spend­ing qual­ity time with your loved one is your main pri­or­ity this evening.


You are able to cut through what­ever prob­lems present them­selves and get at what is nec­es­sary to find, re­pair or sub­sti­tute what­ever it takes to make things work. You work well with those in au­thor­ity who are in­de­pen­dent. Clear de­ci­sions af­fect­ing oth­ers could be made today. You may be sought af­ter by your co-work­ers for ad­vice and di­rec­tion re­gard­ing pro­fes­sional and per­haps, emo­tional is­sues. Be wise to keep any in­for­ma­tion you hear in con­fi­dence, un­der your hat. You could find your­self en­gaged in non­con­formist causes, al­ways ready to pro­mote what is in­de­pen­dent and in­no­va­tive. You like rad­i­cal ap­proaches and find your­self in sup­port of what­ever is new or what­ever break­through ideas are next in line. This may be a day of in­tel­lec­tual cre­ativ­ity. Ex­press­ing your­self with flair is fun and showy, which you en­joy.


This is a chal­leng­ing day. You may, how­ever, want to set aside time to at­tend a lec­ture or busi­ness meet­ing on the tech­ni­cal level. Later, emo­tional con­sid­er­a­tions may block or op­pose how you pro­ceed with a plan. Some­one may get pushy or ob­scure the real choices and the right path. Give your­self time to think things through. Stay away from spec­u­la­tive ven­tures. It is not a good idea to squan­der your resources. You are prac­ti­cal and con­sci­en­tious about your own per­sonal choices and how you con­duct your life. These at­tributes take on a spe­cial im­por­tance now as the young peo­ple in your fam­ily, and per­haps friends, de­pend on your think­ing to help them make life choices: home, car, etc. You are good at help­ing when asked.


Frus­tra­tion, es­pe­cially in get­ting things ac­com­plished, may set today’s mood. You are, how­ever, able to rise above any dif­fi­culty . . . Seen or un­seen. If pos­si­ble, this is a bet­ter time to stay on the path and just keep mov­ing for­ward. You can han­dle any glitch in the process and will even­tu­ally learn to be more pa­tient with your­self. Some­times the process of well-trav­eled steps points the way to the end re­sult that is ap­pre­ci­ated the most. This af­ter­noon, ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion takes on more sig­nif­i­cance. Be­ing more in­volved with neigh­bors or your sib­lings is im­por­tant af­ter your work­day has ended. A sense of be­long­ing and nur­tur­ing is an is­sue that is felt in­stinc­tively. You may be will­ing to go that ex­tra mile for some­one in order to con­tinue pleas­ant con­nec­tions.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

You are a very force­ful speaker and com­mu­ni­cate with great en­thu­si­asm. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties to speak to small and large groups today. This could be in a lec­ture, a work meet­ing, teach­ing, etc. Words just flow out and al­ways demon­strate a heart­felt con­cern that brings them home to your lis­ten­ers. You have no trou­ble putting your feel­ings into words; in fact, you may have to ex­er­cise some con­trol over your tongue, for you can be quick to say things. You may be sought af­ter for your ad­vice and guid­ance re­gard­ing very per­sonal and emo­tional is­sues. You will be able to be un­der­stand­ing and cut through the red tape to get at what is be­hind a prob­lem. If you have a quest, you will find join­ers. A so­cial event this evening will find you at your most el­e­gant.


This is a good time to buckle down and con­cen­trate on your work. Your man­age­rial abil­i­ties and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity prove suc­cess­ful. Your ca­reer as­sumes a more solid form–a firm foun­da­tion. Preach or teach what is on your mind today. Your words con­tain a timely mes­sage that is good for all to hear. You may be able to en­joy and value your own life sit­u­a­tion this af­ter­noon as you visit with a friend or fam­ily mem­ber. You are learn­ing to ask good ques­tions and you can quickly get to the root of a mat­ter that helps in un­der­stand­ing view­points. Lis­ten­ing and adding your com­ments when asked is what makes you a fa­vorite. You may find your­self on the phone later today as you busy your­self cook­ing or look for a spe­cial recipe to trade.


You may be sur­prised when oth­ers ex­press ap­pre­ci­a­tion for your abil­ity to know just what needs to be done and you con­trib­ute your ex­per­tise to what­ever is needed. This could be in the work­place with a team that needs coach­ing, sup­port or guid­ing. Real in­sight into your own in­ner work­ings could sur­face in a man­age­able form. Ev­ery day is dif­fer­ent and you en­joy your work and the peo­ple you work with as each per­son is ded­i­cated and en­thu­si­as­tic. At home this af­ter­noon you may re­al­ize that al­though much ef­fort goes into your work­day, the peo­ple at home also need your at­ten­tion. You build your re­la­tion­ships so they will last a life­time and you are will­ing to do what it takes to make fam­ily work. A young per­son takes the lead tonight.
