Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


Work is al­ways on your desk–thank good­ness. How­ever, you do find that your mind drifts to your own idea of re­cre­ation. It has been a long time since you heard your heart sing. Oh, come on . . . Take the com­ing week­end to rent a cabin at a nearby lake and en­joy the time away from work. A lit­tle added work around the house each day this week will have you ready by the time fri­day night arrives. If you are by your­self, get a group of friends to­gether . . . If you are with a fam­ily, make plans to have a re­union soon–wher­ever you de­cide. At any rate, it is time you planned for more fun–per­haps one week­end a month. You and your fam­ily will en­joy some fun to­gether time. This evening you may be able to catch up on news of the neigh­bor­hood.


En­ergy and self-as­sur­ance are rather low, so use the time to eval­u­ate your sen­si­tiv­i­ties and leave the deep dis­cus­sions for an­other time. Do not ne­go­ti­ate the sign­ing of con­tracts today. This is, how­ever, an op­por­tune time to sit down alone and get many things ac­com­plished. You will find a shift in en­ergy as you head for home this af­ter­noon and as you look back on your work­day you will be most pleased at your ac­com­plish­ments. If the weather is not suit­able for work­ing in the yard this af­ter­noon, clean the garage. This will leave you by your­self to think, work and clean and hum a happy tune. Show your ap­pre­ci­a­tion of others and cel­e­brate life in gen­eral by treat­ing your­self and some­one you know to a din­ner or a fun na­ture walk, etc. Group ac­tiv­i­ties are good.


You en­joy do­ing some re­search in the work­place. Dur­ing this day there are also op­por­tu­ni­ties to lis­ten to a book on tape, take long walks, pet an­i­mals, en­joy brief vis­its with chil­dren and have long philo­soph­i­cal con­ver­sa­tions. This is your day to do many things. One thing about you is that you do not be­come pre­oc­cu­pied with one idea and ac­cept it as gospel–you have an open mind. Con­sid­er­ing all sides of a story may be most ben­e­fi­cial just now. Take stock of what you have ac­com­plished in your life and share your ex­pres­sion of grate­ful­ness with a dear friend. Co-op­er­a­tive ac­tiv­i­ties now should be both well-at­tended and suc­cess­ful. Per­haps a light din­ner and movie is the per­fect ac­tiv­ity for tonight. Your fo­cus this evening is on healing and love.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

This is a great day for per­sonal achieve­ment as well as making plans. Your per­sonal goals are clearly vis­i­ble and you should make great strides in reach­ing them. Be care­ful not to alien­ate friends or loved ones who may be fol­low­ing a dif­fer­ent path. You at­tract many op­por­tu­ni­ties right now, but you must choose which to pur­sue. Faith in your own self is the key. This is a time of ma­jor tran­si­tion in your life, one that is usu­ally quite ben­e­fi­cial. Today, your job is to find ways in which you can en­hance your cre­ative abil­i­ties and lift or raise your psy­chic en­ergy. Care­ful–there are op­por­tu­ni­ties to be lazy, as well as ex­pres­sive. Con­sider sign­ing up for a class or teach­ing a class. This will pro­mote a healing in your­self and others.


This tues­day, clear com­mu­ni­ca­tions and young peo­ple go to­gether. You will find this a good time for de­ci­sion making with lots of talk­ing to others about their dreams and goals and the process of achieve­ment. You could be teach­ing, lec­tur­ing or find­ing your­self a guest speaker. The ac­cent today is on com­mu­ni­ca­tion. A gath­er­ing of peo­ple af­ter your speech will be easy to nav­i­gate and it will leave you feel­ing that you have helped others. Trad­ing points of view with others should be in­for­ma­tive. Travel is fa­vored, es­pe­cially if it is for your own rest and re­lax­ation. Find a good book­store, mu­seum or con­cert for tonight. You may see value in or feel love for an older per­son or some­one in author­ity. You ap­pre­ci­ate the pos­i­tive things around you.


You may be pleased, if not a bit sur­prised, at how many projects have al­ready been com­pleted this year. Four months into the last year was less ful­fill­ing but now–you re­al­ize your po­ten­tial. Of course, you have come to un­der­stand that the more you ex­pe­ri­ence or know the more there seems to be to learn and ex­pe­ri­ence. You are re­freshed with new en­thu­si­asm to con­tinue your work and re­assess new ways to branch out and be ex­pres­sive. It does not mat­ter whether you are the least paid per­son in the busi­ness or the busi­ness owner . . . You are en­cour­aged and look for­ward to new ac­com­plish­ments. This is a good day. Your gen­er­ous and warm mood cre­ates op­por­tu­ni­ties to shine in the so­cial cir­cles; you can melt any heart.


You may want to feel more se­cure through a bet­ter fi­nan­cial in­come now. A part-time job could be con­sid­ered this tues­day. You are able to en­ter­tain and ex­press your tal­ent in suc­cess­ful ways, which could be how you de­cide to in­crease your in­come. If you are in a fam­ily that has a hard time bud­get­ing, you might teach bud­get­ing through games, re­wards and in­cen­tives. What­ever the case, you have to be the one to set the ex­am­ple, so you might want to re­think your own bud­get. Cre­ativ­ity comes into play now–en­joy this time of learn­ing–it can be one of the more im­por­tant times in your life. Your mood im­proves as the day moves for­ward. This evening you and your fam­ily mem­bers will cheer each other as you all share in ex­press­ing your dreams, goals and plans.


– There is a lit­tle ex­tra time today for solv­ing puz­zles and an­swer­ing prob­lems that may have been pushed aside for an­other time. Com­mu­ni­cat­ing feel­ings be­comes im­por­tant as you may un­cover im­por­tant mat­ters that need at­ten­tion. Con­sider the facts and re­port the re­sults of your eval­u­a­tion. Mat­ters can then be con­sid­ered in a timely man­ner with­out emo­tional com­ments. Teams of peo­ple are made up of per­son­al­i­ties and a good boss is aware and will un­der­stand your think­ing. Ap­pro­pri­ate com­mu­ni­ca­tions will prove pos­i­tive. Be sure to keep an open mind about new ideas and pay at­ten­tion to the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties a new plan may re­quire. Friends are the keys to your emo­tional sat­is­fac­tion this evening and a movie or meal to­gether may be just the tonic.


You seem em­pow­ered with a clear and in­quis­i­tive mind. Dis­cussing ideas with co­work­ers or in meet­ings with your boss can be most ben­e­fi­cial and re­ward­ing. Any­one tak­ing a noon break with you usu­ally finds the most in­ter­est­ing con­ver­sa­tions. You have an easy­go­ing man­ner to all. Re­la­tions with mem­bers of the op­po­site sex are strength­ened at this time. This is a good day to ask fa­vors from some­one close or to re­turn a fa­vor. How­ever, it may be best to just take it easy and plod along with what­ever you were do­ing. Stay­ing on an even keel with busi­ness, friends or a ro­man­tic part­ner is kind of nice at this time and may find you whistling a happy song. You could be en­cour­aged to be­come in­volved in vol­un­teer work this evening–per­haps with chil­dren.


Men­tal mo­ti­va­tion from others is en­joyed now; it is a good idea to make ev­ery ef­fort to co­op­er­ate and com­pro­mise with others. Any project today should be a suc­cess. You may want to take on a men­tally dif­fi­cult project or ap­proach a sub­ject with some­one you were too shy about be­fore. You could ask for a raise or–speak pub­licly at this time. En­ergy and self-con­fi­dence are strong! Past fears should melt away. This evening presents an op­por­tu­nity to en­joy some so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties. Be­cause of past ten­sion and hard work, you might re­ally con­sider join­ing the group–fam­ily or friends–in some fun ad­ven­ture. There is de­sire for in­ti­macy and love with a part­ner this evening–with the ex­pres­sion of af­fec­tion be­ing most sat­is­fy­ing.


A bal­ance in your life would con­sist of work and vol­un­teer aid, rest and re­lax­ation, ex­er­cise and nur­tur­ing with chores and hob­bies in each week. This will help bring your en­er­gies into bal­ance and re­duce the pos­si­bil­ity of phys­i­cal prob­lems later. Learn how to re­lax and clear your thoughts through art or mu­sic. This will re­ally help your peace of mind. Mu­sic is also a won­der­ful tool with which to rest, en­ter­tain your­self or ex­er­cise. This is a suit­able time to get to know some­one bet­ter. Ad­di­tion­ally, there is a chance you may hear from a long-lost chum. Men­tal in­cen­tive from others is a good thing and it’s a good idea to make ev­ery ef­fort to lend your sup­port and en­cour­age­ment to others, as well as your­self. This is a pro­duc­tive day.


– Firm de­ci­sions in a group meet­ing this day may be sur­pris­ingly suc­cess­ful. If you can, pro­vide for this meet­ing a few snacks and wa­ter with a le­mon or lime wedge for the glass. By shar­ing your per­spec­tive, and lis­ten­ing to the other ideas, a new plan will de­velop. You may be de­lighted at the progress and just want to take in the view of ev­ery­thing com­ing to­gether–sim­i­lar to an artist that sees the pic­ture be­fore the brush hits the can­vas. The en­er­gies of this day are to­ward progress and growth. This en­ergy can be used for healing and plan­ning or steady ac­tiv­ity of any pos­i­tive sort. Later this day you may find your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties dou­ble where re­la­tion­ships are con­cerned and this may mean babysit­ting or just re­spond­ing to the need of others on short no­tice.
