Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

SCOR­PIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV. You are at your men­tal best with clear thoughts. This is an ex­cel­lent time to make de­ci­sions and take care of men­tal work. You may de­cide it is quiet enough this morn­ing to bal­ance the check­book, work out a bud­get or just gen­er­ally catch up on some read­ing. You could be feel­ing more in­ward and more like shar­ing some time with your lover or with close friends this af­ter­noon. Per­haps this is not a time to be very out­ward or to try to present your­self to the world. You are feel­ing re­flec­tive rather than ex­pres­sive. Some kind of heal­ing process is at work in your life: you iso­late what doesn’t work, elim­i­nate it and move for­ward. Tonight you may find your­self help­ing some­one move or car­ing for chil­dren so that friends can have some time alone.


Fam­ily and se­cu­rity are things that rat­tle your chain more than ever now. These are ar­eas where you make new be­gin­nings and bold moves–things you are will­ing to fight for . . . Things in which it pays to be care­ful. Un­con­ven­tional hob­bies and other forms of self-ex­pres­sion may be en­joyed today. Too much time spent with your own project, how­ever, may play havoc with some­one else’s plans. Re­fine­ment and re­la­tion­ships are the keys to emo­tional sat­is­fac­tion for you. Har­mony and beauty are deeply sat­is­fy­ing–and the lack of them can be emo­tion­ally un­set­tling. Be sure to set aside time for oth­ers today. This may mean an el­derly per­son needs to hear your voice or a young child needs your as­sis­tance. Think be­fore you speak!


Your love of truth makes phi­los­o­phy and re­li­gious ideas life­long habits. You ap­pre­ci­ate things of a global or uni­ver­sal level and travel or stud­ies of for­eign lands could be a part of this in­ter­est. You may en­joy the com­pany of friends this af­ter­noon. Ap­pear­ances mean lit­tle to you and you value hon­esty and sin­cer­ity in friends and part­ners. This is a time when you may feel very pas­sion­ate, or dur­ing which your feel­ings, emo­tions and ba­sic life urges undergo change and trans­for­ma­tion. You feel more per­sonal and di­rect and find that you waste less time with hurt feel­ings than be­fore. Your home en­vi­ron­ment, friends and sur­round­ings in gen­eral get at­ten­tion and re­ceive en­cour­age­ment. Your life fi­nally seems to have har­mony and bal­ance.


An out­go­ing and very ex­pres­sive cy­cle of ex­pe­ri­ence has be­gun for you at this time. Now more than ever, you want to be ad­mired and ap­pre­ci­ated by oth­ers, to do and cre­ate things that stir their hearts. This is child’s play; this is ro­mance; this is tak­ing a chance. This may be a time you find your­self among friends or fam­ily that look to you for guid­ance. Fig­ur­ing things out takes on spe­cial sig­nif­i­cance for you. A height­ened in­ter­est in health and diet, as well as an urge to get things or­ga­nized into a ra­tio­nal sys­tem, is a part of this. Much men­tal busy­work goes on today. Friends, group projects and com­mu­nity con­cerns could play a key role that ef­fects your ca­reer di­rec­tion. Al­tru­ism and hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts can af­fect your work and life-path. PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR A friend may con­fide in you today and you may find your­self toss­ing the in­for­ma­tion around in your head most of the day. Think about this–per­haps this per­son con­fided in you be­cause he or she needs a lis­ten­ing ear, not nec­es­sar­ily for feed­back. You will be able to help–pa­tience. Fol­low your heart. You con­trib­ute to har­mo­nious re­la­tion­ships with fam­ily mem­bers today. Fi­nan­cial prob­lems can be set­tled. When you in­vest . . . Seek in­vest­ments you be­lieve in–mak­ing money can be­come dou­bly re­ward­ing. Start by sup­port­ing a good cause. Time spent alone this evening can be very heal­ing. Med­i­tate and get your life to­gether be­fore go­ing out. A new group or club of­fers trav­el­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and you may very se­ri­ously con­sider join­ing.


Close per­sonal ties to other peo­ple are a fo­cal point for your feel­ings–mar­riage and other part­ner­ships could be a key arena for your ac­tiv­i­ties today. You may be able to bring the fam­ily or per­haps a group of your friends to­gether today to en­joy a play, a mu­si­cal or an art ex­hibit. Achieve­ment in po­etry and art may be pos­si­ble now. Your whole world may seem trance­like or dreamy. Movies, books and all other forms of es­cape could prove en­joy­able. This is a great time to re­flect and un­der­stand your own path and any changes you might want to make. Your emo­tions and the feel­ings of those around you may be very easy to un­der­stand. A spe­cial re­la­tion­ship is high­lighted this evening. It is your turn for hap­pi­ness. Ro­mance is pos­si­ble.


There is time this morn­ing to com­plete un­fin­ished busi­ness, or­ga­nize your desk and place a few plants around your work space. Make room for an ex­tra sweater and some rain gear . . . Just in case. This af­ter­noon you may be asked to lead a group in some project where a con­ser­va­tive mind is an im­por­tant fac­tor. In work­ing with so many dif­fer­ent age groups of peo­ple, you are still able to mold the group into one mind so that ev­ery per­son can con­trib­ute as one. You are wise to en­cour­age each in­di­vid­ual in the group for sug­ges­tions and help. Work­ing within a group can in­clude trust and fair play and some back­ing that adds up to a suc­cess­ful end re­sult for your com­pany. A loved one needs your sup­port this evening..


This is a good time for clear de­lib­er­a­tion and prob­lem solv­ing. This is a vi­tal day in which much en­ergy and ac­tion is uti­lized. You could find your­self able to re­ally com­mu­ni­cate and get your ideas across to oth­ers. You are in a se­ri­ous frame of mind and may find your­self deal­ing with mat­ters of much con­cern and re­spon­si­bil­ity. A clear-minded in­sight serves you well. This is a very good time to com­mu­ni­cate your goals and put them into words. Per­haps it is time for an em­ployee re­view, but if not, it is cer­tainly a good time to take your own notes that will help you fo­cus on a few goals. An old neigh­bor­hood or school friend may drop by your house this af­ter­noon to give you some ma­te­rial on a class re­union. CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL You may find your at­ten­tion drawn to sub­jects like law, pol­i­tics, ed­u­ca­tion, travel and re­li­gion. These are cer­tainly some of the ar­eas in which an emo­tion­ally charged drama will be played. Per­haps this is a bet­ter time to think and study–you have a real ap­pre­ci­a­tion for ideas. You may find your­self en­joy­ing a long conversation, writ­ing a let­ter or mak­ing a spe­cial phone call. You may find your­self be­ing put to good use by your friends, or it could be that cir­cum­stances force you to re­or­ga­nize and be more con­ser­va­tive. All of this should go rather smoothly. Your more com­mon-sense qual­i­ties are valu­able. A yearn­ing for the stim­u­la­tion of new ideas and goals is em­pha­sized for now and new friends sup­ply you with plenty about which to think.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Hec­tic emo­tional en­ergy, es­pe­cially this morn­ing, slows you from that long-de­sired camp­ing trip or out-of-town visit with friends. Pa­tience wins out and you will be on your way soon. Fun and ad­ven­ture are on the sched­ule today. Take a chance on some­thing ex­cit­ing, cre­ative and fun. So­cial­iz­ing is your tal­ent and you can use it to your best in­ter­est–net­work­ing. This evening, new en­er­gies seem to fill you up with fresh ideas and thoughts. You could be at your most imag­i­na­tive. New cre­ative en­deav­ors, in­clud­ing writ­ing, will be well worth your time and ef­fort. You could be­come pub­lished be­fore the end of next year. It is easy for you to find the proper mo­ti­va­tion to ful­fill your ideals or make your dreams into re­al­ity. Luck is with you.


The home and fam­ily scene are likely to be in a state of change now–this may mean mov­ing, an ad­di­tion to the fam­ily, or such. High-tech equip­ment im­pinges on the do­mes­tic en­vi­ron­ment some­how. An ec­cen­tric rel­a­tive at­tracts some no­tice. You like for things to go smoothly and some­times the bumps in the road are dif­fi­cult to work through but you have the strength and en­thu­si­asm to suc­ceed and not be­come un­set­tled. You will do your best to close the gap be­tween any mis­un­der­stand­ings among fam­ily mem­bers or be­tween friends just now. Close per­sonal ties to other peo­ple are a fo­cal point for your feel­ings–mar­riage and other part­ner­ships could be a key arena for this. A yearn­ing for ad­ven­ture stirs in you now.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT

At heart, you have a deep sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity and pur­pose and this se­ri­ous­ness is gen­uine and felt by oth­ers. Your in­ner re­sources and emo­tions are ac­cented. A group dis­cus­sion may find you step­ping in to lend a fo­cus. Ex­pect a sense of sup­port and good­will from those around you. You may be able to en­joy and value your own life sit­u­a­tion today or feel es­pe­cially kind to­ward a friend or loved one. A vis­i­tor to your home may want to know about a fun sight­see­ing tour, or a play. Your unique and un­usual qual­i­ties make you the cen­ter of conversation; ev­ery­thing is pos­i­tive. You may find that oth­ers are sup­port­ive of your ideas. You could come up with new so­lu­tions. The good life and all that comes with it are what you aim for now.
