Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


Your good eye-hand co­or­di­na­tion and a sus­tained ef­fort make al­most any task run well. You may feel like re­liev­ing some of this in­ten­sity with ex­er­cis­ing or just get­ting out and about dur­ing the noon hour to­day. You may even en­joy a bit of ex­er­cise with a few of your co-worker friends. You work hard and a break to re­fur­bish your en­ergy is im­por­tant. This is a pe­riod of great men­tal ac­tiv­ity and height­ened com­mu­ni­ca­tion with oth­ers. In­tel­lec­tu­al­ism and the ex­change of ideas have spe­cial ap­peal. You tend to be cre­ative and orig­i­nal in your work and ca­reer, manag­ing to bring new ideas and spon­tane­ity to bear. A round ta­ble dis­cus­sion is im­por­tant and pro­duc­tive this af­ter­noon. You en­joy the com­pany of a pet this evening and one of you learns a new trick.


There is a more dy­namic and out­go­ing qual­ity to your life style now. Best­ing oth­ers in the heat of com­pe­ti­tion and tak­ing on a lead­er­ship role means more to you now than in the past. Fi­nan­cial gain is the bright prospect loom­ing before you now, as you fo­cus on how much things re­ally mean to you. There may be a ten­dency to em­pha­size the ma­te­rial too much, which could lead to the feel­ing that the things you own, own you in­stead. This can be an ex­pan­sive, cre­ative and even a ro­man­tic phase, a time you will look back on with pride and fond­ness. What a great time this is to re­flect and un­der­stand your own sit­u­a­tion–just how you feel about your place in the world. Some­one from your past is on your mind. He or she may be think­ing about you as well.


You are feel­ing good and ev­ery­thing in the work­place seems to just fall into place. Your com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills seem fine-tuned. You are per­cep­tive and sen­si­tive to the needs of oth­ers and you are in a good po­si­tion to teach, guide or just en­joy the spe­cial per­son­al­i­ties of the peo­ple around you. Your mind is ever on com­mu­ni­ca­tion, how you present your­self and come across with oth­ers. It is easy for you to ex­press your­self in a crowd–you are tal­ented. Oth­ers could seek you out for your psy­cho­log­i­cal in­sight and un­der­stand­ing. You have an abil­ity to find the real break­throughs and to spot new trends. You work in ar­eas that are at the very fringe of tech­nol­ogy. The word is ac­com­plish­ment–if there is a job, you can do it.


Your ideas and thoughts may run counter to ac­cepted val­ues: your own or those of oth­ers. You may find your­self in a dis­ap­prov­ing mood at times. De­ci­sions made now may have to be rethought later. You could find your­self tense. This is a great time to re­flect and un­der­stand your own sit­u­a­tion, just how you feel about the di­rec­tion in which you are mov­ing and per­haps some changes that may be needed. There could be an op­por­tu­nity to rise above your own lim­i­ta­tions. You will find that when you re­move any emo­tional is­sues, you make clear and wise choices. You have an open in­vi­ta­tion at this time to have spe­cial time with some­one you love. A re­laxed evening with mu­sic can pro­vide op­por­tu­ni­ties for you to loosen up.


Events may make it easy for you to be orig­i­nal, have break­throughs and find new so­lu­tions to old problems. In­de­pen­dence, orig­i­nal­ity and ec­cen­tric­ity are to the fore­front. You have a burn­ing zeal for hu­man­i­tar­ian goals and what is best for a group or a com­mu­nity. With lit­tle pa­tience for red tape and su­per­fi­cial­i­ties, you in­sist on get­ting right to the heart of any ques­tion. You en­joy your own life sit­u­a­tion and feel es­pe­cially kind to­wards a neigh­bor or friend. Some­one may com­pli­ment you on your tastes or be­long­ings as you visit with friends in your home later to­day. At this time of year there are al­ways op­por­tu­ni­ties to talk about tra­di­tion. You may find that you have been in­vited to sev­eral par­ties and may be asked to help in the plan­ning stages of one or two.


The work you do and the way you take care of your health are im­por­tant keys to your best po­ten­tials now, in many re­spects. There is a need for fo­cus and care­ful anal­y­sis in these ar­eas of your life. Set up sys­tems and sched­ules and stick to them! You may ex­pe­ri­ence dis­sat­is­fac­tion with what you have or find around you. Per­haps it is time to weed out the unessen­tial or find help to com­plete long projects that have be­come te­dious or bor­ing. These things that you get rid of cre­ate a space for new and more fas­ci­nat­ing things to en­joy. Friends this af­ter­noon bring a give-and-take op­por­tu­nity into your life. You give and crave to be ap­pre­ci­ated for your gifts. This evening brings about a cre­ative and even ro­man­tic phase–a time of fond mem­o­ries.


You may have to ex­cuse your­self from some of the in­ter­ac­tions with co-work­ers in or­der to get your work ac­com­plished to­day. You may feel like talk­ing a bit more than usual, hap­pily be­com­ing lost in con­ver­sa­tion. It is cer­tainly a day for think­ing and ideas. There will be an urge to com­mu­ni­cate more than usual. With your de­ter­mi­na­tion to be­come more at­ten­tive to your work, much can be ac­com­plished. Later to­day there will be an op­por­tu­nity to ex­change in­for­ma­tion and be­come more in­volved with neigh­bors or sib­lings. Oth­ers may find you es­pe­cially witty and ec­cen­tric this evening. You may have in­sights or break­throughs in re­gard to your own liv­ing sit­u­a­tion. You are ready for big changes and you pro­ceed with lit­tle steps.


You bring a lot of men­tal skills and un­der­stand­ing to what­ever you do and could help oth­ers take a more in­de­pen­dent ap­proach to their life or ca­reer. Some of your friends and even co-work­ers may seek you out for your psy­cho­log­i­cal in­sight and un­der­stand­ing. To­day may be one of those days where you seem to be spend­ing more time in giv­ing guid­ance to oth­ers than you are in achiev­ing re­sults from your work. You may find your­self in over­time or tak­ing a bit of work home with you this af­ter­noon. Your in­ner re­sources and emo­tions may also be ac­cented this evening when a young per­son presents you with some in­ter­est­ing chal­lenges. You ex­pect good will and ef­fort from every­one that seeks your guid­ance and you re­ceive pos­i­tive re­sults.


Things are hap­pen­ing and your ca­reer or path de­pends on your own am­bi­tion and drive, which are strong now. This is the time to get ahead by tak­ing action. Good for­tune and plain old luck sur­round you. You eas­ily make correct de­ci­sions and you find the right path to move for­ward where ca­reer and suc­cess are concerned. Life’s problems seem man­age­able. On the home front you will be the cen­ter of at­ten­tion as you may have un­ex­pected com­pany. You en­joy en­ter­tain­ing oth­ers and can al­ways find some type of re­fresh­ment to serve when nec­es­sary. There will be an op­por­tu­nity to trade in­for­ma­tion and en­joy con­ver­sa­tions about cu­ri­ous things. This can be an ex­pan­sive, cre­ative pe­riod–a time you will look back on with fond­ness.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

This is a very lucky day for mak­ing plans. You feel suc­cess­ful. Sub­jects such as law, pol­i­tics, ed­u­ca­tion, travel and re­li­gion are some of the ar­eas where emo­tion­ally charged is­sues could be dis­cussed. Good sug­ges­tions from a guide or older per­son may be help­ful–lis­ten care­fully. This is also a time of strong de­sire– per­fect for start­ing some­thing new or tak­ing care of busi­ness. A busi­ness part­ner­ship that used to work to your ad­van­tage now seems less in keep­ing with your plans for the fu­ture and it is time for changes to be made. A change of at­mos­phere af­ter work may help you gain fo­cus on this change and may call for bounc­ing a bas­ket­ball around for a while. This or some sim­i­lar ac­tiv­ity is a great way to get rid of stress af­ter a busy work­day.


Ca­reer de­ci­sions are straight­for­ward. You make your way through ideas, concepts and your abil­ity to ex­press them to oth­ers. You will make ca­reer gains by your abil­ity to sense qual­ity and choose ac­cord­ingly. Help­ing those who can­not help them­selves–and ac­cept­ing such help if you need it–is an es­sen­tial les­son now. There is a men­tor to be found if you need one and you may have the op­por­tu­nity to play such a role for some­one else. You may find your­self more than a lit­tle ea­ger to ac­quire items to­day. Your cur­rent ap­pre­ci­a­tion for just about ev­ery­thing may lead you to over­spend this af­ter­noon. Talk to a friend this evening and make plans to ex­er­cise to­gether through­out the win­ter. This is a great way to chan­nel ten­sions into some phys­i­cal en­ergy.


Outer cir­cum­stances are fa­vor­able and it should be easy for you to push for­ward in projects and in other as­pects of your life. Things may seem al­most mag­i­cal in the way they work out to the most pos­i­tive. This is a great time to get things ac­com­plished. En­vi­ron­men­tal con­tam­i­nants con­nected with your work can be a prob­lem and you may be suc­cess­ful in con­vinc­ing higher-ups of needed changes. You may en­cour­age co-work­ers to join with you re­gard­ing a cleanup pro­ject in your work en­vi­ron­ment. There are re­wards! Oth­ers ap­pre­ci­ate your at­ten­tion to bet­ter work­ing con­di­tions. You may even­tu­ally see a domino ef­fect with other busi­nesses around your city where this cleanup is concerned. You en­joy vis­it­ing with friends this evening.
