Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

– CAPRICORN 22 DEC 19 JAN The feel­ing for to­day is the need to stay fo­cused. You feel good about the re­sults of some long-term project com­ing to an end soon. New projects are on the hori­zon. Re­wards for your hard work in your busi­ness should be en­joyed be­fore long. You could also see some mon­e­tary re­sults from a lucky guess. Your cre­ativ­ity is at an all-time high; keep your con­cen­trated ef­forts go­ing. Ex­pec­ta­tions can move to the back burner con­cern­ing ro­mance; how­ever, ro­man­tic pos­si­bil­i­ties are strong. You may be ready for a lov­ing part­ner­ship that comes when you choose a good re­la­tion­ship. Keep the faith, there will be some­one for you soon, if there is not some­one spe­cial just now. Party time this evening cre­ates some fun in­ter­ac­tion with friends and ac­quain­tances.

– AQUARIUS 20 JAN 18 FEB Speak out to­day when an im­por­tant de­ci­sion may cre­ate un­ex­pected prob­lems for em­ploy­ees. The de­mands of your ca­reer may in­ter­fere with the har­mony at home just now. Be­ing over­worked can keep you away from the fam­ily. Re­view and de­fine your ca­reer goals and you will be fo­cused and ready for all sorts of mir­a­cles. You will cre­ate a heal­ing with a friend to­day; whether the re­la­tion­ship is a last­ing one or not, you will be pleased with the out­come. This is a time to in­sert a lit­tle flex­i­ble think­ing into your day. You have enough com­mon­sense to stay out of trou­ble. Tak­ing things too far with­out the facts can have you ag­o­niz­ing over an imag­ined out­come as well as a stom­achache. Busy hands will help you to keep your mind re­laxed.

– PISCES 19 FEB 20 MAR Un­fin­ished tasks may have you work­ing late to­day. 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. If you de­pend too much on the ap­proval of peo­ple, you may be get­ting into a bed of thorns. Be en­thu­si­as­tic with your re­gard for oth­ers. Be gen­er­ous in your praise. It is worth the ef­fort; peo­ple will ad­here to your words when it is most im­por­tant to you. They will re­mem­ber you as the per­son who ac­knowl­edged them. Your crav­ing to be ap­pre­ci­ated will also be re­al­ized. Be open to re­ceive mes­sages of beauty, cheer and courage. This evening, you and a friend may de­cide to make win­ter wreaths for the front door.

– ARIES 21 MAR 19 APR Your own thoughts are dis­tract­ing to­day. Have a notepad avail­able and write down one or two word thoughts each time you find your mind drift­ing so that you can know that you will re­mem­ber and get back to that par­tic­u­lar thought later. Work can soon con­tinue at a brisk pace as usual. In­sert your sense of hu­mor when it is needed to­day. Si­lence can be very loud this af­ter­noon and you may want to stir the soup--but stir softly, as other peo­ple may be con­cen­trat­ing on their work. Find ways to clear away things that stop your love re­la­tion­ship from grow­ing. En­joy a walk or a good visit with a friend this af­ter­noon. Find ways in which to share your ex­pe­ri­ences of each day. You can be a very ex­cit­ing com­pan­ion.


To­day en­cour­ages hard work and study--you have a real ap­pre­ci­a­tion for ideas and thoughts. This af­ter­noon you catch up on phone calls and make ap­point­ments. A young per­son or mate com­plains be­cause he or she needs more money. Dare your­self to guide this per­son in dis­cov­er­ing the abil­ity to make money in­stead of ask­ing for it. With a mate, it may be in man­ag­ing a garage sale, etc. There could be an emo­tional over­tone to all of this that re­quires some flex­i­bil­ity. Your sense of hu­mor will cre­ate pos­i­tive feel­ings. You may have at­tracted a new friend re­cently. This could be­come an im­por­tant re­la­tion­ship, per­haps a younger per­son or some­one in your near en­vi­ron­ment. You think of ways to add color to a drab sur­round­ing..

– GEMINI 21 MAY 21 JUN You will find your­self feel­ing in a stay-ath­ome mood but you, like the rest of us, join the work crowd and make your con­tri­bu­tions. Ca­reer or vo­ca­tional de­ci­sions are best made from the plan­ning view­point and not the fi­nal de­ci­sion phase just now. Be wise with your use of power. Work a lit­tle on your taxes this af­ter­noon so that you will be ahead of any prob­lems that could come up, as in find­ing re­ceipts, etc. This is a time to re­new the spirit and build on the con­nec­tions you have with your loved ones. By tak­ing charge of your life and show­ing re­li­a­bil­ity, you can eas­ily gain the re­spect and ad­mi­ra­tion of oth­ers. Be watch­ful while walk­ing your dog this evening; you may dis­cover an in­ter­est­ing new an­i­mal in the neigh­bor­hood.

– CAN­CER 22 JUN 22 JUL You are mov­ing ahead and fi­nances are im­prov­ing. There is just one prob­lem--the money just does not seem to stay around long enough to take root. How­ever, by show­ing rea­son­able re­straint you can set up a sit­u­a­tion for bet­ter fi­nan­cial growth. Con­cen­trate on the job at hand and zero in on ways to im­prove the re­quired skill. Lo­cal, im­me­di­ate and press­ing mat­ters get the green light. Visit­ing or invit­ing the neigh­bors in for a game of cards or re­fresh­ment may be just what is needed to strengthen the com­mu­ni­ca­tions at this time. This would be a great time to run new ideas past a neigh­bor­hood im­prove­ment group. Per­haps a neigh­bor will sup­port or add to your pro­pos­als. Fam­ily, home, rel­a­tives and real es­tate play big parts in your life..

– LEO 23 JUL 22 AUG Tak­ing care of busi­ness is the most im­por­tant or­der for the day. Tummy trou­bles to­day may have you be­liev­ing in a more bal­anced nu­tri­tion. Your sharp mind and en­thu­si­as­tic ways may keep you from be­ing taken ad­van­tage of to­day. A fear of fail­ing if you as­sert your­self can hold you back--as can com­ing on too strong. The trick is learn­ing to make the most of your per­sonal tal­ents and abil­i­ties, work­ing within your lim­i­ta­tions in­stead of feel­ing hemmed in by them--bal­ance. There is noth­ing like laugh­ter to bring about a peace­ful end­ing to a rather frus­trat­ing day. Watch a com­edy video and en­joy be­ing en­ter­tained a lit­tle dif­fer­ently from your usual. If you want to add color to a drab af­ter­noon, con­sider ar­rang­ing a bowl of fruit or flow­ers.

– VIRGO 23 AUG 22 SEP Prob­lems con­cern­ing per­sonal space, pri­vacy or lim­i­ta­tions in workspace can be han­dled with pa­tience this morn­ing. Changes hap­pen and you are able to cre­ate an agree­able com­pro­mise. Ex­er­cise helps in arthri­tis and walk­ing should be con­sid­ered as a good form of ex­er­cise for you; walk­ing is also a good way to en­joy good blood cir­cu­la­tion. Main­tain­ing good health care re­quires di­ver­sity. Con­cen­trate on main­tain­ing a cen­tered aware­ness. In a cen­tered aware­ness you will be­come aware of pos­ture, at­ti­tude, en­ergy, etc. You may re­ceive help from a guide or teacher along these lines as well. Pro­fes­sional and per­sonal re­la­tion­ships get a pos­i­tive boost. Find ways in which you and your loved one can be close to na­ture this af­ter­noon.

– LIBRA 23 SEP 22 OCT A com­puter or some other high-tech equip­ment has your in­ter­est this morn­ing. You may ap­pre­ci­ate your pro­fes­sion and prom­ise to learn as much as you can in or­der to ex­cel and move for­ward. You some­times find it hard to be­lieve you can have so much fun within the con­fines of how you make your liv­ing. The af­ter­noon will bring about more changes that are pos­i­tive where the mat­ters of money are con­cerned. You at­tract peo­ple that give you en­cour­age­ment and may at­tract a new friend this af­ter­noon. Some­one may be com­ing into your life that is new to your part of the coun­try. You are able to help this per­son ne­go­ti­ate through the ba­sics. There is time this evening for a home movie or a movie in the com­fort of your home

– SCORPIO 23 OCT 21 NOV This is a smooth-run­ning day. Busi­ness is a ma­jor theme and you are up for any of the roller coaster events. You crave or­ga­ni­za­tion and you will gain some free­dom of con­trol in your area of ex­per­tise. You feel a need for a change, a de­sire to break with out­moded pat­terns from the past. Travel plans are pos­si­ble now as well. You may have sev­eral con­tracts or pro­pos­als to re­view this af­ter­noon. This is a full day with a most pos­i­tive end­ing. This af­ter­noon is fill­ing up with a va­ri­ety of so­cial op­por­tu­ni­ties. Per­haps a stim­u­lat­ing lec­ture or mu­sic con­cert is the av­enue of en­joy­ment. You may find your­self shop­ping for the lit­tle ex­tras that make an evening per­fect--a lit­tle wine, a lit­tle cheese. Ro­man­tic en­er­gies are high this evening.

– SAGITTARIUS 22 NOV 21 DEC You have the right idea in the busi­ness field but if you talk to cus­tomers in­stead of rep­re­sen­ta­tives, you might find more in­ter­est­ing ways to in­crease busi­ness. Ex­pect a boost of sup­port and good­will from those around you. You could be most in­flu­en­tial and per­sua­sive. Keep­ing par­tic­u­lar things in or­der is a ma­jor theme where your emo­tional ori­en­ta­tion is con­cerned. Most of this is so that the things that are im­por­tant to you are not left out of the or­di­nary flow of life. Again, it is a ma­jor theme emo­tion­ally. Health and work goals take on greater im­por­tance for you now. You need to add more veg­eta­bles to soups, sal­ads and pas­tas in or­der to help you feel full and sat­is­fied. Save the rich food for spe­cial oc­ca­sions.
