Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


You have the op­por­tu­nity to make steady progress to­ward your ca­reer and so­cial goals now. Your con­fi­dence, hon­esty, ma­tu­rity and self-re­spect are de­vel­op­ing nicely. Be­cause one or two em­ploy­ees do not show up to­day, you may be asked to fill in as best you can. Dis­agree­ments can arise from dog­matic or fixed opin­ions–care­ful. Diplo­macy is re­quired in com­mu­ni­cat­ing with any­one. Your phys­i­cal well­be­ing is good and get­ting bet­ter, par­tic­u­larly through good nu­tri­tion and ex­er­cise. Clean up your sur­round­ings by get­ting rid of the things you no longer use. Now there will be plenty of time to en­joy your­self and your sur­round­ings. No procrastination! You may change your mind about a very im­por­tant de­ci­sion.


This is a day to ad­just to chang­ing plans and then . . . Ad­just again. In­ter­est­ingly enough the ad­just­ment you need to make en­hance your pro­fes­sion and show off your skills. Group ob­jec­tives are achiev­able. Be clear about your goals, move to ac­com­plish them and suc­cess is as­sured. This is a pe­riod of in­creased work re­spon­si­bil­ity. You work to de­velop good work habits and a sen­si­ble health regime. Dress­ing sensibly and find­ing bet­ter ways to serve your cus­tomers, clients or em­ployer are im­por­tant is­sues to you. You will have a guardian an­gel bless­ing all you do for fam­ily and friends. If you would like to pur­chase a new home, ex­pand or ex­tend your ex­ist­ing home in some way, this could be the time to up­date.


Busi­ness and pro­fes­sional deal­ings may have rel­e­vance to fam­ily, or to do­mes­tic prod­ucts and ser­vices. You can ben­e­fit from all in­ter­per­sonal and pub­lic re­la­tions, so­cial con­tracts, le­gal af­fairs and pub­lic-speak­ing ap­pear­ances. Give your new as­so­ciates your sin­cere loy­alty. You avoid con­flicts of in­ter­est very well, know­ing that there is no pay­off in try­ing to con­vince some­one of your way of think­ing when they do not want to lis­ten. You set ex­am­ples with your hard work and your goal will be re­al­ized. You may achieve more than you thought as you set more goals and you can see that you will achieve pos­i­tive re­sults quickly. You gain a spe­cial­ized knowl­edge that will give you the free­dom to ad­vance your pro­fes­sional ob­jec­tive.


It’s a good time to travel for plea­sure. Sports or games with chil­dren can be great fun. Let your artis­tic ex­pres­sion and per­sonal style flour­ish. You can have an im­pres­sive lucky streak in busi­ness spec­u­la­tion or gam­bling. Do not bet the farm. Know when to quit or you will end up ow­ing more than you have gained. The fast pace of daily af­fairs might get you down to­day. Try to rec­og­nize the stress sig­nals and rise above the moment. Think things through and do not be­la­bor your point. There is a pos­si­bil­ity of com­ing to an agree­ment in a par­tic­u­larly dif­fi­cult con­tract or view. This pe­riod em­pha­sizes im­por­tant so­cial and pro­fes­sional agree­ments. You will have less time to spend with fam­ily and old friends. Plan a group gath­er­ing soon.


Joint ven­tures have a green light to­day, bring­ing you luck in wheel­ing and deal­ing. There are new fi­nan­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties through­out this week; pre­pare to move fast in this re­gard–your in­stincts are sharp. Prac­tice good judg­ment in a so­cial sit­u­a­tion. Con­sider all the facts be­fore reach­ing a con­clu­sion. You are com­mended for keep­ing gos­sip out of a con­ver­sa­tion with friends this af­ter­noon. Avoid in­tel­lec­tual prej­u­dices con­cern­ing per­sonal, re­li­gious, philo­soph­i­cal, cul­tural or ed­u­ca­tional views. If you have al­ways wanted to write a book, now is the time to be­gin. You have an in­ter­est­ing life and can use some of your ex­pe­ri­ences as a ba­sis for your book. Your de­ter­mi­na­tion to pro­vide will pre­vail; re­wards are in the mak­ing.


You tend to de­sire more fun and stim­u­lat­ing ro­mance in your life; per­haps this is an ad­ven­ture bug you tend to get in­stead. You may want to en­ter­tain oth­ers in or­der to be no­ticed and ap­pre­ci­ated. Your sex ap­peal tends to in­crease. You are apt to par­tic­i­pate more in games, sports, gam­bling and ac­tive play with chil­dren. You may en­joy in­tel­lec­tu­ally ori­ented games and hob­bies and take more plea­sure in lit­er­ary art forms. You also tend to be con­cerned with chil­dren and their ed­u­ca­tional de­vel­op­ment–plan­ning is im­por­tant and there is much to con­sider. You ex­press your­self well and com­mu­ni­ca­tions are pos­i­tive. You may take a greater in­ter­est in beau­ti­ful cloth­ing, and al­ter­na­tive health habits be­come more at­trac­tive.


You have the de­sire and en­thu­si­asm to tackle any prob­lem or project that comes to your at­ten­tion. Your per­son­al­ity and mode of liv­ing will be change­able. You are well dis­posed to oth­ers and have the abil­ity to stop and lend a help­ing hand when­ever the need arises. Com­pan­ion­ship with oth­ers is most re­ward­ing and you are wise to take ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to be with friends later this af­ter­noon. You can be help­ing them as much as their pres­ence is help­ing you. Your body is in­vig­o­rated, mak­ing you feel ready to con­quer the world. There is not only a de­sire for out­door phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, but there will most likely be am­ple op­por­tu­nity to par­take in it. How­ever, you should be care­ful re­gard­ing any undo risks or thrill-seek­ing

stunts. This evening is for fun.


You may soon look to pur­chase or sell art and lux­ury items. You may want more phys­i­cal com­forts and you seek to im­prove your ma­te­rial se­cu­rity through fi­nan­cial or busi­ness agree­ments. A co-worker may be quite im­pressed by your choice in art and you may be asked to help in choos­ing art­work for his or her liv­ing area. If you send out pic­tures dur­ing the hol­i­days you might want to make an ap­point­ment for a pho­to­graph sit­ting that will in­clude all who want to be in­cluded. Pro­fes­sion­ally, you are where you need to be . . . There will be new op­por­tu­ni­ties to grow soon, but not now. Con­ver­sa­tions about foot­ball are hard to com­pete with to­day; even at home they seem never-end­ing. A young per­son in your fam­ily wants more of your time.


Projects be­gun now will be suc­cess­fully com­pleted with re­wards. The work you put in to build­ing a solid foun­da­tion for your­self and your fam­ily will def­i­nitely be ben­e­fi­cial. Con­sis­tency is im­por­tant–you must re­main com­mit­ted. Per­sonal fi­nan­cial con­sid­er­a­tions can be com­plex, par­tic­u­larly if joint re­sources are a con­cern. Ne­go­ti­a­tions, how­ever, will prove most pos­i­tive. Va­ri­eties of peo­ple come across your path this day. This will more than likely be in your pro­fes­sional ex­per­tise. Work your charm, and in­flu­ence them to­ward your way of think­ing–buy! You may re­view your bud­get so that you can save for that spe­cial va­ca­tion or investment idea–fru­gal­ity is not fool­ish. Be­tween you and the astrologer–your wor­ries

will end!

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Your imag­i­na­tion is en­er­gized. Ac­tiv­i­ties can in­volve pro­mo­tional cam­paigns, mu­sic, storytelling or in­spi­ra­tional work. This is a take ac­tion sort of day and you take pos­i­tive ac­tion to achieve the best out of your work. Some­times a lit­tle re­minder to keep a few mo­ments for you to re­flect is a good thing. In­stead of get­ting stuck in af­ter­noon rush-hour traf­fic, you can learn new ideas and in­ter­est­ing per­spec­tives while vis­it­ing one of the mu­se­ums or li­braries near your work. Later to­day, you may be called upon to help some­one that is hav­ing some psy­cho­log­i­cal bat­tles–you will know just what to say. You tend to be gen­er­ous with money and ma­te­rial goods. Money can be­come avail­able for higher ed­u­ca­tion and travel. Grad­u­ally, liq­ui­date what

you no longer need.


To­day is a day to spend in team or group ac­tiv­i­ties. If you need a fa­vor, now is the time to ask. This is also a good day for in­ter­views or pro­mo­tions. An un­ex­pected as­sign­ment is prof­itable. You may find new friends this af­ter­noon. When asked, you are mo­ti­vated to help oth­ers solve prob­lems. Emo­tional stress strongly af­fects your sense of phys­i­cal well­be­ing. By mak­ing an ef­fort to re­lease emo­tional blocks and free your­self from ten­sion, you will be pleased at how much bet­ter you feel. Ap­ply your en­er­gies this evening into con­struc­tive ac­tion. Seek re­spon­si­ble groups or com­mit­tees with which to com­bat prob­lems. Be aware of harm­ful or toxic sit­u­a­tions. This may just mean that it is time to go or­ganic with re­gard to gar­den­ing.


You tend to be pro­duc­tively in­volved with taxes, in­sur­ance, in­her­i­tance, pen­sions, in­vest­ments, credit and jointly held re­sources ev­ery year. It is a good time to ben­e­fit from re­search or to di­rect your in­sight to­ward un­der­stand­ing other peo­ple’s mo­ti­va­tions. You may have a de­sire to de­velop busi­ness or cor­po­rate strat­egy. This can be an im­por­tant clear­ing-out pe­riod of elim­i­na­tion and re­cy­cling waste prod­ucts. You will be an in­ter­est­ing, stim­u­lat­ing per­son to be around to­day, so get out and min­gle. This day is good for mak­ing ini­tial con­tacts that might de­velop into in­tense or im­por­tant re­la­tion­ships later. Your self-con­fi­dence is up, pro­vid­ing you with the strength not to feel chal­lenged by a friend or lover’s need­i­ness.
