Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


Act­ing on im­pulse can lead you in di­rec­tions that go nowhere, so watch out for ten­den­cies to be hasty or tem­per­a­men­tal. Now is not the time for you to ini­ti­ate a change–you could be very close to reach­ing your goals. Con­tinue with your hard work and you will see great re­sults. An urge to change and try new things may chal­lenge and over­turn your hard work. How­ever, new ways to com­mu­ni­cate will make con­ver­sa­tions and in­ter­ac­tions go well. You might also keep your eyes open for a spur-of-the-mo­ment fi­nan­cial op­por­tu­nity. Tak­ing care of work is­sues is of ut­most im­por­tance. You may find your­self more talk­a­tive than usual this af­ter­noon. Us­ing your prac­ti­cal side takes on a spe­cial im­por­tance. Good news comes in the mail to­day.


Moody, even dreamy, de­scribes the emo­tions of the day. It may be dif­fi­cult to get into a more prac­ti­cal way of think­ing. Fo­cus . . . Set your mind to com­plet­ing your work and take plenty of breaks. An un­fo­cused mind can be just as bad as a stress-filled day. A crav­ing this af­ter­noon may cause you to won­der just what it is that makes peo­ple pre­fer one thing over another, par­tic­u­larly food. To­day your de­sires may be for choco­late or caf­feine. In­stead of ig­nor­ing the urge, do a lit­tle re­search. You may find a health rea­son for that de­sire. Some peace­ful re­cu­per­a­tion time may be in or­der af­ter a busy day. Re­lax­ation is easy to ob­tain af­ter a bit of ex­er­cise and ex­er­cise is fun with a friend. The night is yours.


This is a great work­ing day. Much can be ac­com­plished. You may be sought af­ter as just the per­son for a prob­lem-solv­ing sit­u­a­tion. Your di­rec­tional abil­i­ties, plus the tal­ent of get­ting to the core of a sit­u­a­tion, are in high fo­cus. This is a pro­gres­sive day in which plans can be made or find­ing your way through just about any prob­lem ends with pos­i­tive re­sults. You feel suc­cess­ful. Good ad­vice from a guide or older per­son is avail­able–if you need it. This is a time to broaden your hori­zons, both in­tel­lec­tu­ally and spir­i­tu­ally. Ed­u­ca­tion, pub­lish­ing, broad­cast­ing, ad­ver­tis­ing, le­gal and po­lit­i­cal in­ter­ests of­fer pro­fes­sional op­por­tu­ni­ties, if you are on the look­out for them. Dis­cus­sions of travel pre­vail this evening. Solid plans can be made about ex­penses.


In­for­ma­tion that you have been ex­am­in­ing and think­ing about will now be­gin to take shape. This next pe­riod is one of ac­tion and em­bark­ing on new projects. You will feel more and more con­fi­dent and out­go­ing. Things that may have been in sus­pended an­i­ma­tion for many years will now take on struc­ture and shape. The price of suc­cess could mean that ideas and some ac­cepted meth­ods of com­mu­ni­ca­tion are ig­nored, or set back. So­cial re­la­tion­ships are a spe­cial fo­cus now. Travel and an­i­mated dis­cus­sions play a part in this and could be less than sat­is­fy­ing in some re­spects. Im­por­tant fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions re­quire more in­for­ma­tion than you re­al­ize at this time. It’s highly im­por­tant to gather and learn all the facts at this time.


Care­ful, to­day your drive and pas­sion may put you at odds with author­ity fig­ures. There is a ten­dency just now to­ward speak­ing and not think­ing through what you want to say. Put your abil­ity to un­ravel dif­fi­cul­ties and find ways to im­prove–not nec­es­sar­ily to re­port or com­plain. You have a lot of ideas for im­prov­ing a va­ri­ety of life sit­u­a­tions. Write down facts and op­tions so that you and oth­ers can make clear, thought-out com­ments that will cre­ate pos­i­tive re­sults. At home this evening you can re­lax and visit with friends and fam­ily. Be as adapt­able as you would like oth­ers to be. A clear-minded in­sight into your own plans and meth­ods is avail­able to you. Tonight, a so­cial event is fun. That dress or suit from sev­eral years ago is per­fect for tonight.


Learn­ing to man­age change–much of it aris­ing from so­cial or tech­no­log­i­cal de­vel­op­ment–is vi­tally im­por­tant now. Don’t be caught sleep­ing at the switch, think­ing that things will re­main the same–they will not. If you are not pre­pared for change you might find that change hap­pens when you are not look­ing for it. The place where you work is a mo­ti­vated, for­ward-mov­ing com­pany. Now is a time to gather and ex­change in­for­ma­tion that will pre­pare you for fu­ture ad­vance­ment. You may find that both your per­sonal growth and your ca­reer de­pend on how you can han­dle some sen­si­tive psy­cho­log­i­cal ma­te­rial com­ing up now. You will ben­e­fit from an­a­lyt­i­cal in­sights– get­ting to the heart of things. You are in a pos­i­tive place. Mu­sic will help you re­lax tonight.


You must pay at­ten­tion to­day; new in­for­ma­tion can change your method of work. Money, sex and health can be a fo­cus for this–travel may help de­cide the out­come. You have an abun­dance of good prac­ti­cal job-re­lated ideas. The abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate with su­pe­ri­ors comes eas­ily. Your prac­ti­cal side is show­ing to­day and that is good. There are break­throughs in your ca­reer just now that could be­gin to un­fold and help you to reach new lev­els of ac­com­plish­ment. Pro­ceed with an at­ti­tude of high hopes and raised as­pi­ra­tions. Friends are your great­est al­lies this af­ter­noon and you may en­joy just hang­ing out and be­ing part of the group. Be care­ful what you ask for this evening–it could be granted to you. Sing, hum and en­joy your sur­round­ings.


To­day may bring op­por­tu­ni­ties to move or change your po­si­tion in the work­place. A turn­ing point is oc­cur­ring now that may re­quire some care­ful thought and good judg­ment on your part. Be open to the ideas of oth­ers as you may find fresh opin­ions. You can make great head­way with what­ever you are in­volved with just now, which could in­clude per­sonal and busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties. Projects you have been put­ting off at home may be done this af­ter­noon. It looks as if you will re­ceive some help or as­sis­tance where you need it the most. Pay at­ten­tion to what you are do­ing; act­ing on im­pulse can lead to false starts. Re­spond to long over­due cor­re­spon­dence tonight. Per­haps you could write a thought­ful let­ter to a si­b­ling. En­ter­tain pleas­ant thoughts tonight.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Use your in­stincts to help you make some im­por­tant de­ci­sion this morn­ing. Do not sec­ond-guess a gut feel­ing. You will also be asked to lead a meet­ing. A col­league may need a fa­vor this af­ter­noon and you hap­pily spend a lit­tle time to help. Your home and fam­ily en­vi­ron­ment are likely to be the scene of many chal­lenges. Peo­ple who want to do things their way seem to pull the rug out from un­der you. It’s im­por­tant to take ac­tion, but only where it can do the most good. This is where your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties are to­day: where the most good can be done. Women play an im­por­tant role in mak­ing your busi­ness or pro­fes­sional life more lu­cra­tive now. A busi­ness so­cial gives you an op­por­tu­nity to net­work; go and take your part­ner or loved one with you.


You may not place much value on ideas and thoughts just now. Hard work and re­search tells the truth, how­ever, and you are ready to ex­press your opin­ion. Re­move the emo­tions and go with the facts. You have the sta­tis­tics to back up your re­search and you are ready. Some­thing that some­one says or com­mu­ni­cates to you may have cre­ated the de­sire for re­search–this is good. Lessons learned in busi­ness sit­u­a­tions are valu­able. A dif­fer­ent man­ner of pre­sent­ing your­self may be in or­der. In-depth dis­cus­sions find you at your men­tal best. As a stress re­lief, en­joy some form of sports or ex­er­cise this evening. Re­la­tion­ships are high­lighted now. Clear the agenda this evening and be there for a loved one. Al­low your part­ner to make some de­ci­sions.


New busi­ness op­por­tu­ni­ties are open­ing up for you to­day. This could mean a new job, new in­vestors, new pro­mo­tion . . . Do not he­si­tate to make your move. This is a good time to make de­ci­sions in your own pro­fes­sional life as well as help­ing to im­prove your com­pany’s busi­ness. As you make de­ci­sions on what to pur­chase, good re­sults hap­pen as you check cre­den­tials, seek fi­nan­cial ad­vice or com­pare prod­ucts. Trav­el­ing home this af­ter­noon you may be­come aware of a group of peo­ple who can­not help them­selves and they may just sim­ply need ad­vice. Per­haps you have stopped along the way to visit with some­one in the hos­pi­tal or checked on an an­i­mal at a clinic. Help­ing those who can­not help them­selves and get­ting them help is im­por­tant to you.
