Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


You want to get things ac­com­plished and yet you may put off tend­ing to im­por­tant mat­ters just now. You may feel you have been work­ing on some project way too long. Talk­ing to a higher-up may help–there could be new projects for you to un­der­take. Be pa­tient; you put the push on and buckle down and con­cen­trate–soon you will be ready for some­thing more chal­leng­ing. Al­most the same thing oc­curs at home but if you are will­ing, you can hire a young per­son to help you wind up those loose ends. Per­haps a room needs paint­ing or a cab­i­net or closet needs re­ar­rang­ing. Ne­go­ti­a­tions may be in or­der be­fore you can make much head­way. Fun and ad­ven­ture are at the top of the list when the chores are com­pleted.


This is an easy, calm day that should find ev­ery­thing run­ning smoothly. Pos­i­tive in­ter­ac­tion with au­thor­ity fig­ures may be in the forecast. Your en­thu­si­asm about what you are do­ing is catch­ing. Others en­joy work­ing with you. Work­ing with–rather than against– the flow of en­ergy should help you get you where you want to go. This is a time of good for­tune when things open up in a very nat­u­ral way. A higher-up may re­veal some im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion to­day; lis­ten with­out com­ment­ing. Sit­u­a­tions are al­most tai­lor-made and it is easy to see which path is the one to take. Op­por­tu­ni­ties pre­vail and you may find your­self want­ing and able to do al­most ev­ery­thing. Mat­ters of law, re­li­gion and phi­los­o­phy of the most de­ter­mined kind hold your in­ter­est.


If you are work­ing and not in school this year, you will find that you have a great deal of in­flu­ence on others and can make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence within the work­place. Quick re­sponse from per­sonal in­quiries should have pos­i­tive re­sults. This may mean a re­quest for a loan, real es­tate sales, con­fir­ma­tion of dates and ap­point­ments, etc. Take care not to be­come so in­volved in think­ing about fu­ture events at work that you for­get mat­ters in the fam­ily just now. Health goals may take on im­por­tance. You ben­e­fit from an older per­son’s ad­vice this af­ter­noon. Fam­ily mem­bers have a big im­pact on your goals and make a big im­pres­sion. This week­end is a good time to seal plans for a re­union, trip or fam­ily get­to­gether. En­joy the flow of mu­sic this evening.


You rea­son and an­a­lyze end­lessly and are never hap­pier than when fully en­gaged in some project. If you are not en­gaged in work, you may tend to worry and have feel­ings of in­ad­e­quacy. You make your way to­day through ideas and con­cepts, as well as the abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate and ex­press your­self to others. You are ag­gres­sive in the pur­suit of gain­ing in­sight into all that is new, dif­fer­ent and out of the or­di­nary. Elec­tron­ics, com­put­ers and com­mu­ni­ca­tions could be a big part of your life at this time. You are very mo­ti­vated when it comes to mat­ters that con­cern the care or ser­vice of others. You are up for any task that re­quires pro­tect­ing. You may have to can­cel a prior en­gage­ment in or­der to close a deal or com­plete a pro­fes­sional obli­ga­tion tonight.


This is a pro­duc­tive time to be with others and to work to­gether. There is a space in time to help a friend to­day. You show your in­ter­est in ex­plor­ing the realm of dreams and imag­i­na­tion. You can delve into most any se­cret or sen­si­tive area and find an­swers. There is a lot of en­ergy be­hind what you say and think–you can make quick de­ci­sions. You com­mu­ni­cate with feel­ing and strength. The lunch hour may be in­ter­est­ing to­day–you have choices to make. Friends en­joy your com­pany but shop­ping may take prece­dence for a short while. Ev­ery­thing works to­gether to bring out your ex­cep­tional qual­i­ties. You could come up with new ideas or styles to help make your work more com­fort­able. Per­haps new shoes are in or­der. Smile!


Tak­ing care of busi­ness is a ma­jor theme where your emo­tional ori­en­ta­tion is con­cerned. You love to have your work and sur­round­ings as or­ga­nized as pos­si­ble and you are in the mood to dive in and ac­com­plish many things. You aim to have a place for ev­ery­thing and ev­ery­thing in its place. Care­ful– any­thing that gets in your way may get on your nerves. Health and work goals take on greater im­por­tance for you now. Your mind is quick and your words are all you need to help you through most dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions. You have in­sight into your emo­tions and drive and you can talk about your work or some project you feel pas­sion­ate about with great flu­id­ity. Things are hap­pen­ing with your pro­fes­sional ca­reer that may de­pend on your own am­bi­tion, which is strong now. You are able to make all the right moves.


You could ex­pe­ri­ence sev­eral in­ter­rup­tions to your work this morn­ing. You could be frus­trated by some­one, or ex­ter­nal events might pile up and be thrust upon you. Au­thor­i­ties and red tape may stand be­tween you and the com­ple­tion of your goals. This, how­ever, is of short du­ra­tion. This is not a great time to at­tempt to get your ideas across to others. You may find your­self feel­ing blocked and un­able to ex­press your­self, par­tic­u­larly in a group sit­u­a­tion. Pa­tience–if all your days were the same, you might look for a dif­fer­ent job. Your at­ten­tion this af­ter­noon may be to­ward some­one that is a bit un­der the weather. Take the time to visit and for­get your own frus­trat­ing day–it will mean a great deal to this per­son. Later this evening, ro­mance is in the air.


Faith, op­ti­mism and a yearn­ing to ex­plore all kinds of new hori­zons are some of the fo­cal points in your life at this time. Travel, ed­u­ca­tion and other ways to stretch your hori­zons open new doors of op­por­tu­nity. Re­li­gious, philo­soph­i­cal and cul­tural mat­ters are likely to have a spe­cial ap­peal. Trans­mit­ting ideas on a broader scale brings gain. Tak­ing re­spon­si­bil­ity for the er­rors of the past and the ways you con­trib­ute to your own un­do­ing are very im­por­tant is­sues now. Dodg­ing them may be the eas­ier thing to do, but it will only put off a day of reck­on­ing. Mak­ing peace with the past and com­ing to terms with karmic debts are be­com­ing some of the is­sues that con­front you now. Fail­ure to face these things can cause set­backs in your path.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

You are com­ing into a pe­riod of fluc­tu­a­tion. This may mean a change in liv­ing quar­ters or pro­fes­sional choice or just sim­ply a change in what you choose to be your fa­vorite color. You may find that your pro­fes­sional life has a few new touches of orig­i­nal­ity. If you work on the sales floor of a fine de­part­ment store, the way you show off the prod­ucts you sell will win the eye of the cus­tomers. If you have al­ways wanted to be a buyer for your com­pany, you may get the chance soon. This af­ter­noon you may be help­ing to dec­o­rate for a dance, a wed­ding or a shower of some sort. The peo­ple that agreed for you to dec­o­rate could not be luck­ier. Join a loved one in some fun ac­tiv­i­ties later this evening and re­lax with those you love..


The prob­lems and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of life may be seen in a new light at this time. You are able to han­dle dif­fi­cul­ties more eas­ily, see­ing them as part of a larger story. You bring a sense of value and the ideal to what are oth­er­wise very prac­ti­cal mat­ters. You may find your­self in man­age­ment and or­ga­niz­ing at a very ideal or spir­i­tual level. You have a sense for what the crowd wants, which may in­clude an ad­ver­tis­ing, dec­o­rat­ing or de­sign skill. There is a change oc­cur­ring that will bring new in­sight into how you can take bet­ter ad­van­tage of your cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. You are more able to see what is or is not worth pur­su­ing now. You may have break­throughs that are per­haps, un­con­ven­tional in health and diet. Pay your bills on time.


In-depth dis­cus­sions and prob­ing con­ver­sa­tions find you at your men­tal best. Your an­a­lyt­i­cal abil­i­ties are at a high point. Tak­ing care of busi­ness is a ma­jor theme where your emo­tional ori­en­ta­tion is con­cerned. You crave or­ga­ni­za­tion and prac­ti­cal­ity and you want to get things ac­com­plished. You aim to have a place for ev­ery­thing and ev­ery­thing in its place. Health and fam­ily goals take on greater im­por­tance as well. Your home en­vi­ron­ment, friends and sur­round­ings in gen­eral re­ceive at­ten­tion and en­cour­age­ment. Your work or ca­reer is in real har­mony with the rest of your life. Your de­sires are strong and you will want to en­joy your­self. Ro­mance is very pos­si­ble. There is a ba­sic drive to ap­pre­ci­ate and taste life.


Your pri­or­i­ties and busi­ness ne­go­ti­a­tions are equal. Dis­cus­sions with au­thor­ity fig­ures may cre­ate some nega­tive think­ing–what ifs, etc. These neg­a­tives can be changed rather quickly and you may even feel that you can cre­ate some sort of turn­around with your in­put to­day. You draw emo­tional sus­te­nance and a sense of se­cu­rity from ideals, friends and so­cial in­volve­ment this evening. There is a need for change, a de­sire to break with out­moded pat­terns from the past and a long­ing for the new, the dif­fer­ent and per­haps, the unique. Work goals are im­por­tant, but you will find re­la­tion­ship in­ter­ac­tions just as im­por­tant this evening. Find a bal­ance–en­joy some laugh­ter–get plenty of rest. You can look for­ward to an en­joy­able week­end.
