Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR This is not the time to be lazy. There is much to do this morn­ing and the prepa­ra­tions for a pre­sen­ta­tion or sales pitch will go very well. A ten­dency to scat­ter your en­er­gies may need watch­ing at this time. There are work­able so­lu­tions to most ev­ery­thing and you are pa­tient. Do not hes­i­tate to fol­low up on a blos­som­ing busi­ness ven­ture–re­search may be in or­der. There may be some­one new that you will meet who will give you im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion. Deal­ings with rel­a­tives may keep you very busy this af­ter­noon. The re­sults of th­ese in­ter­ac­tions with rel­a­tives are most pos­i­tive. It pleases you to make oth­ers happy. Group and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties fill your time this evening. Of­ten com­mu­nity or hobby ac­tiv­i­ties pro­vide a re­lax­ing break.

TAURUS 20 APR – 20 MAY You have a great deal of un­der­stand­ing of and sen­si­tiv­ity to the needs of oth­ers just now and may be called on to help a co­worker or you could be asked to run some im­por­tant er­rand. It may be easy to come up with ideas for a neigh­bor­hood beau­ti­fi­ca­tion project later to­day. You seem able to cre­ate in­cen­tives so that oth­ers want to be in­cluded in fu­ture plans. This may in­volve plant­ing of flow­ers or hedges along the en­trance to your neigh­bor­hood. Per­haps a pro­tec­tive cover near a bus stop could be pe­ti­tioned for now. What­ever the case you will suc­cess­fully in­volve oth­ers in a quest to beau­tify your neigh­bor­hood or city. There is a real op­por­tu­nity to­day to com­plete and work out dif­fi­cul­ties that in­volve peo­ple or projects re­quir­ing a high de­gree of dis­ci­pline.

GEMINI 21 MAY – 21 JUN You will eas­ily adapt to any en­vi­ron­ment or so­cial group to­day. You are nat­u­rally at­tracted to agree­able peo­ple who can sat­isfy your crav­ing for con­tin­u­ous men­tal stim­u­la­tion. You will need to pick and choose your ac­tiv­i­ties so that you are not scat­ter­ing your en­er­gies in too many dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions. You could spread yourself too thin and find yourself spent of en­ergy by this evening. There may be an op­por­tu­nity to lis­ten to a mo­ti­va­tional speech, at­tend a lec­ture or learn a new craft. Lis­ten­ing and learn­ing in­stead of teach­ing and ac­tion may be the mode of the day– go­ing with the flow, so to speak. You crave new ex­pe­ri­ences and as you reach out for that some­thing new, you will not be dis­ap­pointed. You are op­ti­mistic about your fu­ture.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL A strong need for nur­tur­ing is a big­ger than usual el­e­ment in your life now. You may feel the need to care for oth­ers or to have them care for you. You may find work with se­niors or dis­abled is just for you. Then again . . . It may be you are good in the health care in­dus­try and can be most help­ful with mas­sage ther­apy or wa­ter ther­apy. Ac­tiv­i­ties with neigh­bors, friends or rel­a­tives make the af­ter­noon go along with the strong feel­ings of sup­port and ap­pre­ci­a­tion for life. De­mands on you and on oth­ers will be­gin to loosen. How­ever, other peo­ple may tend to en­cour­age you to act pre­ma­turely. Think things through be­fore jump­ing into some­thing you may not want to do in the fu­ture. Weather per­mit­ting, en­joy a walk tonight.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG You tend to en­joy mak­ing a dif­fer­ence for peo­ple with a com­mon cause or a univer­sal ideal in­stead of seek­ing power. How­ever, to­day you may find oth­ers could give you much en­cour­age­ment along the lines of ob­tain­ing a power po­si­tion, per­haps in your pro­fes­sion or per­haps in the com­mu­nity. If you de­sire this, sup­port is avail­able. Part of the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and ad­di­tional life ex­pe­ri­ences that come with hav­ing such a wide scope of friends is that you are con­stantly ma­nip­u­lat­ing your time. This af­ter­noon you may find yourself help­ing or be­ing with friends–some­one could be mov­ing or oth­er­wise need­ing your as­sis­tance. Your unique qual­i­ties stand out to­day–you are able to help oth­ers with­out re­lin­quish­ing your per­sonal time.

VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP Too many peo­ple in one place to­day may have ev­ery­one in a frus­trated mood. This may mean a meet­ing has been go­ing on a lit­tle too long. Per­haps it is time to sug­gest a break. Peo­ple al­ways see sit­u­a­tions in a dif­fer­ent way af­ter get­ting a lit­tle fresh air or tak­ing in a lit­tle snack. New in­sights make ev­ery­one happy to­day. A few chores at home af­ter the work­day is over and you are ready to join your friends or fam­ily. Close re­la­tion­ships take on more emo­tional depth, power and im­por­tance this evening. A love of mu­sic, an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for sen­sual plea­sures and other fine things in life are the signs of the cy­cle that has be­gun for you. A few of your friends, rel­a­tives or neigh­bors may gather this evening to chat about plans for the sum­mer.

LIBRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT You want bal­ance dur­ing the work­ing week and the eas­ier you can make it for you and your fam­ily, the hap­pier you are. Meals made ahead of time and frozen and lunches ready to as­sem­ble in a quick man­ner are fun to grab and go . . . You are proud of yourself and you feel or­ga­nized. If you have a large fam­ily, you will en­joy help­ing them be­come or­ga­nized. They will all learn from you, so keep up the good work. Con­sider writ­ing a mag­a­zine ar­ti­cle on some of the tech­niques you use to make your fam­ily run well. You may be sur­prised at the re­sponse you get . . . You could even put out feel­ers to the crowd and see if read­ers will sup­port a blog. This evening, you may want to send a let­ter to a friend or se­cluded fam­ily mem­ber, via fax or com­puter.

SCORPIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV Stay away from lift­ing and mov­ing heavy things to­day, un­less you can get some­one to help or you wear a brace and bend from your knees–your back will be much more re­laxed. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties to move equip­ment, help some­one carry boxes, etc. Your pro­fes­sional life is in­ter­est­ing to­day, in that you are around en­ter­tain­ing, smart and witty peo­ple. As much fun as it is to lis­ten to a few jokes or witty re­marks, it is also fun to hear your own voice–easy does it. At home this evening you may be­come aware of an el­derly friend or rel­a­tive that has some back­ground of in­ter­est. En­cour­age the el­derly in your fam­ily, or friend’s fam­ily, to write down ge­neal­ogy or event facts for the next gen­er­a­tion. You could record their sto­ries for pos­ter­ity.

SAGITTARIUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC Check out a class or book on med­i­ta­tion. It will give you tools for re­lax­ation. Med­i­ta­tion classes will also help you have that in­ner com­fort that comes with be­ing nur­tured. You might even find some recorded in­for­ma­tion along this sub­ject. A li­brary may have a few record­ings on med­i­ta­tion and that will save you money and al­low you to find the rhythm or style of med­i­ta­tion best for you. Nur­tur­ing and be­ing nur­tured are im­por­tant to us all. To­day is a great time to col­lect the sup­port that comes from be­ing pos­i­tive and calm. Close re­la­tion­ships take on more emo­tional depth, power and im­por­tance. You are in a great mood to­day and can ap­pre­ci­ate your own bet­ter qual­i­ties. You may have fun car­ing for an­i­mals this evening–per­haps a bath.

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN Ar­riv­ing at work early this morn­ing helps to avoid the crowd of com­muters. You have lots to do. This is a very good time for meet­ing, de­ci­sions and find­ing your way through just about any prob­lem you may un­cover. Vis­it­ing a mu­sic store at the noon break cre­ates some fun-filled min­utes. If you do not have chil­dren, some­one in your fam­ily or among your friends does. You will find yourself around chil­dren this af­ter­noon. There is a chance that some­one will want to bor­row your tools, car, lawn equip­ment, etc. If you feel that there could be a risk–say no. You are learn­ing to stand firm in many dif­fer­ent ar­eas of your life–about time! More thought­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tion with a loved one is en­joyed this evening. Har­mony fills the air this evening.

AQUARIUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB You could en­list the aid of oth­ers to help you in the work­place now. There can be re­wards in team ef­forts. Your creative abil­i­ties are in full gear and you could come up with some creative ideas that will aid your team. Your suc­cess ar­rives in an ed­u­ca­tional, le­gal or pub­lish­ing ven­ture. You could be in­volved in help­ing the el­derly, hand­i­capped or chil­dren this af­ter­noon. There is a sec­ond chance to­day to make a dream come true–for yourself or some­one else. You could be most per­sua­sive with oth­ers. A good con­ver­sa­tion with those you love is pos­si­ble this evening. Sta­bil­ity sat­is­fies a deep emo­tional need. If you are stay­ing home, mu­sic could be fun this evening, whether it is in lis­ten­ing or par­tic­i­pat­ing in a jam ses­sion with your mu­si­cal friends.

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR A group meet­ing turns out to be quite suc­cess­ful this morn­ing. You al­ways have in­tel­li­gent, se­ri­ous, yet light­hearted ways to get your mes­sage across to oth­ers. Em­ploy­ees that know you are speak­ing will not usu­ally be ab­sent on those meet­ing days. A creative and up­beat meet­ing pro­vides a pos­i­tive sort of at­mos­phere for the whole day. There are stim­u­lat­ing con­ver­sa­tions pop­ping up in the most in­ter­est­ing places. This af­ter­noon, a friend may en­cour­age you to take bet­ter care of yourself. You may find you have an in­ter­est in sign­ing up for a nearby ex­er­cise class with this friend. The do­mes­tic scene gains new ap­peal and now is a good time to talk with your fam­ily. You are very aware of other peo­ple and their needs. Con­sider a sum­mer­time of­fer.
