Malta Independent - - CROSSWORD & FUN -


An an­nounce­ment at work this morn­ing may cause you to want to re­view parts of your ed­u­ca­tion that you have not had a chance to put to good use. Con­sider your op­tions and put your good sense to use. If you are very dis­creet, you can re­store a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion at work to a state of har­mony. A new pro­fes­sional as­sign­ment ap­peals to you this af­ter­noon. You may feel that you will be able to make those im­por­tant strides for­ward as you take on this new as­sign­ment. If you are not as tech­ni­cally skilled as you would like, this is a good time to in­vest in a class or the equip­ment you need. Some­one you re­spect will be able to ad­vise you. This evening is a good time for sur­round­ing your­self with friends and young peo­ple and for hav­ing a good time.


Se­crets, taboos and mys­ter­ies ap­peal now. Learn­ing the process of find­ing so­lu­tions holds your in­ter­est. This may mean that some num­bers did not add up prop­erly, and you are usu­ally able to de­tect the miss­ing link. Some­one may have lost some­thing im­por­tant or a sim­i­lar prob­lem has your at­ten­tion–don’t lose track of your goal for today. Your in­stinc­tive ori­en­ta­tion at this time is to­ward get­ting down to ba­sics and elim­i­nat­ing any mis­un­der­stand­ing or mis­take. You un­cover an­swers from the most un­ex­pected places. You could re­ceive un­ex­pected help today or sup­port from oth­ers. There is a big project due at work this af­ter­noon and you en­joy be­ing able to con­cen­trate on it. This evening is a good evening for mu­sic, din­ner and ro­mance.


New forms of cre­ativ­ity and self-ex­pres­sion seem to open up new av­enues for ac­com­plish­ments. In­creased con­fi­dence and a more out­go­ing man­ner may be the keys that open many a new door in your ca­reer. This is cer­tainly a time dur­ing which your ca­reer or life path un­der­goes a cer­tain amount of change and trans­for­ma­tion. You find your­self firmly against side­tracks: the unessen­tial. You can re­ally home in on how to solve prob­lems and get where you want to go. Your sup­port sys­tem that con­sists of fam­ily and friends be­comes more se­cure at this time. You are able to dis­pense with some of the unessen­tial things in your life and de­velop what is most ba­sic and true in your en­vi­ron­ment. You en­cour­age bet­ter sup­port. Progress is un­avoid­able.


There is a project due at work today and you en­joy be­ing able to con­cen­trate on it. There are no in­ter­rup­tions and if you wish, oth­ers are ready to lend a help­ing hand. A num­ber of new goals make a lot of sense to you and you work to cre­ate greater suc­cess. Feel­ing suc­cess­ful and pros­per­ous is the first step to­ward be­com­ing those things. Pic­ture your­self liv­ing the life you want to lead and you will be very pleased at the out­come. A fam­ily mem­ber, per­haps a child, wants to share some qual­ity time with you this af­ter­noon. Later this evening you may meet an old friend for din­ner. If you have been over­do­ing it lately, this evening may be a good time to re­lax. Po­etry, mu­sic and the arts in­ter­est you, as do psy­chol­ogy and the psy­che.


Oth­ers will fol­low your lead today. Ob­tain­ing and ex­chang­ing in­for­ma­tion takes on more emo­tional im­por­tance for you now. You could come up with plenty of new ideas for mak­ing the work you are do­ing run as smoothly as pos­si­ble. Your in­stinc­tive ori­en­ta­tion now is to­ward get­ting down to busi­ness and ac­com­plish­ing your goals for the day. The power of or­ga­ni­za­tion on a so­cial scale–busi­ness, pol­i­tics and such–seems to take on a larger-than-life en­ergy, as you en­ter into a new cy­cle. It’s as if am­bi­tion and au­thor­ity are an­swers in them­selves, rather than only a means to an ideal ob­jec­tive. This could be a time dur­ing which your ca­reer un­der­goes a cer­tain amount of change and trans­for­ma­tion. You are fo­cused and at­ten­tive to your work.


This is a great time to be­come friends with your co-work­ers as you work to­gether. A pe­riod em­pha­siz­ing an en­hanced sense of per­sonal pos­si­bil­ity has just be­gun. This is a time of tremen­dous psy­cho­log­i­cal growth, which can lead to per­sonal suc­cess if you fol­low through with it. You might also find that you will put on the pounds if you are not care­ful. Ev­ery­thing points to your tak­ing the ini­tia­tive. In the work­ing world you will find your­self com­ing up with all sorts of pro­duc­tive ideas. This could mean a new ad­ver­tis­ing strat­egy or new sales ap­proach. At home or in your own artis­tic ex­pres­sion it could just be the touch that gains you recog­ni­tion. You could find that you are ap­pre­ci­ated for your abil­ity to fol­low through and try new ideas.


You may find your­self hav­ing emo­tional dif­fer­ences with some­one. Those around you, or the sit­u­a­tion you find your­self in, may not feel right to you–you could be chal­lenged. How­ever, this is of short du­ra­tion; you are in the mood to seek the right so­lu­tion for all. Your in­stinc­tive think­ing at this time is to­ward be­com­ing fo­cused and com­plet­ing un­fin­ished busi­ness. You have a love af­fair go­ing with the mind and you value the in­tel­li­gent use of words, ideas, thoughts and such. This af­ter­noon you may en­joy games of trivia. You love to talk and may find your­self in sev­eral good con­ver­sa­tions all day long. These stim­u­lat­ing men­tal ad­ven­tures are among the most ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ences for you. You may teach young peo­ple the art of gen­eros­ity tonight.


This morn­ing you may find you are at odds with oth­ers re­gard­ing mat­ters of con­ven­tion. If you do not be­come car­ried away by other peo­ple’s fool­ish ideas you will be able to in­sert some pos­i­tive, com­mon­sense al­ter­na­tives to projects that may need sal­vaging. Con­nect­ing with oth­ers through an at­ti­tude of team­work will make for prof­itable re­sults. Your en­thu­si­asm could be­come pop­u­lar, par­tic­u­larly if you point out the good points that oth­ers have cre­ated and how they will fit with the group. This makes you ideal as a teacher or group leader, es­pe­cially with young peo­ple. Know when to pull back and take the back seat, so to speak. You will feel real har­mony this af­ter­noon from those around you. Mu­sic can be quite a lot of fun this evening–dance.


You have blind courage and sheer guts–a self­s­tarter. In­no­va­tions–new and pos­si­bly un­con­ven­tional ap­proaches to be­ing pro­duc­tive or mak­ing money–are in order today. In­de­pen­dence is a very good thing. We are all con­nected, but we also need to be in con­trol of our own goals and this is some­thing you strongly work to achieve. Lis­ten to your own in­ner guid­ance par­tic­u­larly if you have the sense of be­ing pulled into in­vest­ments or other projects that seem to dis­tract you from your path of suc­cess. Your re­sponse to life is be­com­ing more orig­i­nal and in­no­va­tive. You look to home and fam­ily for sup­port and en­cour­age­ment. Se­cu­rity and hav­ing roots are im­por­tant to your pro­duc­tiv­ity now. Some­one close to you wants to see you suc­ceed.


This is a great time to be work­ing in group or team sit­u­a­tions. Dis­cov­er­ing what you truly be­lieve in–fight­ing for it, even–is a high per­sonal pri­or­ity now. Re­li­gion, law, pol­i­tics, travel and higher ed­u­ca­tion are some of the ar­eas where this takes place. This is a time of test­ing your lim­its to see how far you can go. Learn­ing what makes peo­ple tick is ex­cit­ing and en­light­en­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal in­for­ma­tion. There is an em­pha­sis on close re­la­tion­ships and a pre­oc­cu­pa­tion with ideas of fair­ness and har­mony that are part and par­cel of the men­tal cy­cle you have just be­gun. This af­ter­noon you may de­cide to shop and pre­pare for the win­ter months ahead–per­haps it is time for a new style–hair or clothes. Ro­mance is an out­let for much of your en­ergy this evening.


This is a pe­riod of in­creased men­tal ac­tiv­ity and sen­si­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion with oth­ers. In­tel­lec­tu­al­ism, the ex­change of ideas and the idea of be­ing smart as a fox are the things that have a special ap­peal and im­por­tance at this time. You are most per­sua­sive with oth­ers and elo­quent in mak­ing your­self un­der­stood. You should be able to get your ideas across with ease. The mak­ings for a bright and witty day are at hand. Your com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills are at a high-wa­ter mark. New un­der­stand­ings of those around you bring about a special time of en­joy­ment. Gen­eral good feel­ings and a sense of sup­port and har­mony makes this a happy time. Stress re­lief this evening may en­com­pass the fun of be­ing en­ter­tained by a friend.


You may find that both your per­sonal growth and your ca­reer de­pend on how you can han­dle the very sen­si­tive psy­cho­log­i­cal ma­te­rial that may be com­ing up now. You will ben­e­fit from an­a­lyt­i­cal in­sights, get­ting to the heart of things: pen­e­trat­ing. You are at your most prac­ti­cal when it comes to deal­ing and work­ing with oth­ers. This is a time of much en­ergy and drive, per­fect for be­gin­ning a new project or tak­ing care of busi­ness– very phys­i­cal too. You may be asked for your ad­vice and coun­sel re­gard­ing some very per­sonal and emo­tional is­sues. You will have an op­por­tu­nity to ei­ther be a lis­tener or to lend a help­ing hand with­out get­ting in too deep. An evening out for din­ning and dance is pos­si­ble tonight, per­haps even a lit­tle ro­mance.
