Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


A tem­po­rary ob­sta­cle may ap­pear this morn­ing, but never fear . . . It is short-term. You may be very pleased with the re­sults of your quick think­ing and hard work by the time this day has ended. You or­ga­nize projects and peo­ple. Peo­ple’s opin­ions are not quite enough for you now, they must be backed up by au­thor­ity or ev­i­dence and that is what you will be re­ceiv­ing. Those in au­thor­ity take no­tice and you will be re­warded for your suc­cesses soon. There is a great op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand your mind and ed­u­cate your­self now. Chil­dren come to you for prac­ti­cal help and oth­ers are pleased at the way you can or­ga­nize a crowd–par­tic­u­larly with chil­dren. Talk about any cel­e­bra­tion con­cerns with a part­ner or loved one now–travel may be in the fore­cast.


You have a nat­u­ral god-given gift for know­ing just what the pub­lic wants and needs when they come to see you. This could mean any­thing from per­fume, cologne, vi­ta­mins, hair­cut, etc. There is a great feel­ing that comes with the abil­ity to make suc­cess­ful and wise de­ci­sions and to use your skill to help oth­ers. Time is mov­ing much too quickly and when asked, you find just the thing that will make a par­tic­u­lar cus­tomer happy to­day. You might en­joy work­ing as a concierge in a fine ho­tel, a wedding con­sul­tant or a cruise ship’s en­ter­tain­ment co­or­di­na­tor. There is no es­cap­ing the fact that you have plenty of work to do just now and it is not good to ig­nore it. You may be se­cretly plan­ning a trip around the world in your own yacht–you will make it hap­pen.


It may be nec­es­sary to do some pen­e­trat­ing anal­y­sis, par­tic­u­larly with a group or in re­la­tion to your sit­u­a­tion. Oth­ers may come to you for help in un­der­stand­ing or psy­cho­an­a­lyz­ing their predica­ment. This could be a time when it would be ben­e­fi­cial to make some changes in your en­vi­ron­ment. Be­ing able to com­mu­ni­cate and get your mes­sage across to oth­ers is es­sen­tial now. Your tim­ing should be good and those around you will ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­fort on their be­half. Time spent alone this evening can be very heal­ing. Med­i­tate and get your thoughts to­gether, or re­fresh your en­er­gies be­fore go­ing shop­ping or at­tend­ing a group get-to­gether. You seem to be full of ex­cit­ing plans for the fu­ture and for you and a loved one.


Ev­ery­thing is com­ing to­gether to show you off at your finest in the work­place. You may be teach­ing or lec­tur­ing dur­ing the day. You have an ex­panded knowl­edge of ab­stract and spir­i­tual things and you are blessed with the abil­ity to help oth­ers, al­though you may not think it a bless­ing. Your friends may have a spe­cial way of uti­liz­ing some of your tal­ent, or it could be that you find cir­cum­stances bear­ing down on you that force you to re­or­ga­nize and be more con­ser­va­tive. This should all work out just fine. Your more re­served qual­i­ties serve you well at this time. You may find a kind of ro­man­tic wist­ful­ness char­ac­ter­iz­ing your ap­proach to life. This could even mean a long­ing for a soul mate or a yearn­ing to save the world.


Talk­ing should be quite un­con­strained to you, as your mind is usu­ally quite clear and nat­u­ral. Ideas could come flow­ing to you with ease. You find your taste in artis­tic things and ap­pre­ci­a­tion in gen­eral is keen now. This may be the per­fect time for you to pick out fur­nish­ings, colors and so forth–the finer things in life. Your sense of value is to the front. Later to­day you may want to just sit back and en­joy what you have. You may ac­tu­ally pre­fer to spend more of your time with loved ones and fam­ily later this af­ter­noon. Your mood is just one of want­ing to en­joy the home en­vi­ron­ment. Some­one spe­cial wants to cook for you this evening and you may lend a help­ing hand, per­haps to chop, peel and steam. Yum!


Your emo­tional di­rec­tion is to­ward tak­ing care of busi­ness–you want an or­ga­nized and prac­ti­cal out­come with the ef­fort you put forth. You want to get things ac­com­plished. Health and work goals take on im­por­tance and you are ap­pre­cia­tive of the days when every­one works well to­gether. Your way with words and your sense of hu­mor are some of the things that en­dear you to oth­ers. Some com­pe­ti­tion to­day is fun and re­ward­ing as you use your sharp mind to sur­pass the oth­ers. Jot down some of your bril­liant tech­niques to help oth­ers learn how to mem­o­rize or work through a cus­tomer file or close a deal. Away from work, you could find that real es­tate may tweak your imag­i­na­tion. You en­vi­sion a fu­ture home and may spend time with de­sign ideas.


You have many projects de­vel­op­ing at this time and your pro­fes­sional progress is run­ning smoothly. Now you have the abil­ity for sus­tained work that al­lows you to co­or­di­nate events and com­plete tasks like never be­fore. Your open-mind­ed­ness makes it easy to work with most peo­ple. To­day you may be asked to com­plete dif­fi­cult tasks and al­though you are wor­ried that you will not fin­ish, you are suc­cess­ful and you are able to help oth­ers com­plete their tasks as well. Those that you find near­est and dear­est to your heart, like your mate and per­haps a child or two, are em­pha­sized this af­ter­noon. You love to make lit­tle trin­kets that al­ways seem to en­dear you to your loved ones. Feel­ing ap­pre­ci­ated for your gifts and tal­ents is a pow­er­ful need.


Cir­cum­stances may in­crease an ap­pre­ci­a­tion and en­joy­ment of your life sit­u­a­tion. Your sys­tem of val­ues may deepen, pro­vid­ing you with a bet­ter sense of dis­crim­i­na­tion. Oth­ers depend on your past ex­pe­ri­ence and your ex­per­tise at pur­chas­ing, se­lect­ing colors, etc. Oth­ers will find your help­ful com­ments im­por­tant. Co-work­ers may find you es­pe­cially dy­namic and as­sertive; you have an abun­dance of en­ergy and drive at your fin­ger­tips. Con­tin­ued suc­cess may point to your abil­ity to be as flex­i­ble as pos­si­ble–per­haps re­work­ing some of your goals. De­vote some time to the one who means the most to you this evening. Har­mony is your mind­set now. Har­mony is what you get! A quiet evening may con­sist of some or­ga­niz­ing pic­tures for a wall or an al­bum.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Fi­nan­cial knowl­edge and a prac­ti­cal turn of mind are qual­i­ties that take on greater im­por­tance in your life now. As a wheel­erdealer, you have a knack of know­ing how to put peo­ple, ideas and things to­gether prof­itably. Play­ing the role of a leader has its re­wards. Oth­ers will dis­cover just how prac­ti­cal you are when it comes to work­ing and deal­ing with you. You seem to have a builtin radar de­tec­tor that helps you to act with­out haste or emo­tion. You are smart and you use your com­mon sense as well as your in­tel­lect. Feel­ing the need to be re­spected is a strong need but you will learn to take care and not let it rule you; con­fi­dence and hu­mil­ity are best and you make a good men­tor through this knowl­edge. You may de­cide to visit with friends this evening.


There could be some very im­por­tant mat­ters that re­quire your at­ten­tion and have you serv­ing as a guide to some­one younger than your­self. You may, at long last, fig­ure out new ways to pro­ceed with plans and de­ci­sions that af­fect some busi­ness con­cerns. Some in­depth dis­cus­sions and prob­ing con­ver­sa­tions find you at your men­tal best. Your an­a­lyt­i­cal abil­i­ties are at a high point. Ex­pect some good prac­ti­cal job-re­lated thoughts and ideas. The abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate with su­pe­ri­ors or de­scribe what you see is strength­ened dur­ing this time. Hav­ing a big un­der­stand­ing of con­cep­tual and spir­i­tual ideas and know­ing just how to present them goes a long way in in­creas­ing your pop­u­lar­ity. A neigh­bor­hood event finds you on your toes this evening.


You may find much of your en­ergy be­ing used on romance and cre­ative pur­suits. This is not a waste of time as what­ever re­sults hap­pen will be ben­e­fi­cially used in the work­place as well as in your per­sonal life. You may own your own busi­ness but more than likely you are serv­ing oth­ers, which is of­ten where you like to be th­ese days. You are en­ter­ing into a very aes­thetic and com­pet­i­tive phase now, one in which you want to be ad­mired and ap­pre­ci­ated for what you do and who you are. As a new cy­cle starts in your life, there arises a pas­sion for de­tails, a need to do just the right thing at just the right time. This can give you in­di­ges­tion if you take it to extremes! Know­ing that you did a job well gives you lots of sat­is­fac­tion and is a high pri­or­ity at this time.


Tak­ing care of busi­ness could be one of your ma­jor themes to­day. Much of your emo­tional sup­port and se­cu­rity comes from your friends, moral in­tegrity and so­cial in­volve­ment dur­ing this time. You could def­i­nitely be feel­ing a need to make some changes in your life, and to break away from some of the out­dated things of your past. You just want to em­brace the new, in­no­va­tive, dif­fer­ent and unique. The old has be­come bor­ing and com­mon and it is time to up­grade your way of do­ing and look­ing at things. It may be easy for you to en­joy and value your own life sit­u­a­tion, or to feel es­pe­cially kind to­ward a friend or loved one. There could even be some spe­cial com­pli­ments com­ing your way re­gard­ing your tastes or be­long­ings.
