There will be a cash-out opportunity in December. Cultivate your burgeoning talent in January; try apprenticeship or internship. May and July are the most interesting months for your love life. Friends influence you, and you could even move. Aquarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 2, 14, 38 and 5. Aries (March 21-April 19): It takes cour age to poke holes in your own theories. Just don’t poke so many that the theory totally sinks before it’s ever had a chance at a test-float. Taurus (April 20-May 20): “Let’s do this. Let’s go there,” they say — usually an indication that whatever is going on right now has either played its course or is just not getting off the ground. Ask yourself why “there” would be any better. Gemini (May 21-June 21): Maybe you’ve drifted from knowing what you want and who you are. That’s natural for these transitional times. The questions you ask will tell you more about that than the answers will. Cancer (June 22-July 22): What if your life is not defined by what you do, but by what you long to do? Where would that put you now in your own estimation? Your consciousness on this matter will make a difference today. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): What you’re going through is unique and universal at the same time. You’re not entirely alone in it, and yet, at the end of this chapter, no one will have a story like yours. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re one of the most authentic and grounded people around, and yet even you wonder sometimes whether you’re faking it. Take comfort in the fact that, to varying extents, everyone is. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Exciting challenges will demand a clear and quick mind. That’s why, if you can get out and do some exercise, it will be worth your while — or, more aptly, absolutely crucial to the success of your day. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’re going to speak up about something. Here’s a radical idea: Why not have it be about you? No one will organize around your secret wish, but your public request will be honored. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Nerves are like pepper. A pinch will give your efforts an exciting edge. Too much, and the soup becomes inedible. Regulating your nerves will be the challenge of the day. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What would you have to do to impress yourself today? A goal with just the right amount of elasticity to stretch you to your potential will be a game changer. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Family knows you best and therefore works you best. Beware of emotional manipulation traps. Don’t do anything that will make you feel like the sap of your family tree. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The one who expresses him or herself freely (risking possible rejection and/or personal embarrassment) will get the ball rolling so everyone feels comfortable enough to chime in. Horoscopes HOLIDAY MATHIS Answer to Saturday’s puzzle Cy the Cynic says that the best way to resolve a hard decision is to flip a coin. When it’s in the air, you’ll realize whether you’re hoping it will land heads or tails. Not every bridge-table decision admits to that approach, but technique and card- reading will help. At today’s four hearts, South ruffed the third club and drew trumps, leaving him with none. He cashed four diamonds and led a spade, but East won the last two tricks with the ace of spades and a club. Down one. “I could have led a spade early,” South shrugged, “but with my luck, I’d have guessed wrong.” South was right about waiting to draw trumps. He needed to lead a spade while dummy still had some trumps to protect against a fourth club lead. At Trick Four, South should lead a spade to the jack. West has shown the A-K of clubs but neither opened the bidding nor acted over South’s opening bid of one heart, so East is more likely to hold the ace of spades. This week: reading the cards. Daily question You hold: Q 7 6 2 8 3 6 5 4 A K 5 3. Your partner opens one heart, you respond one spade and he bids two diamonds. What do you say? Answer: To pass would be timid. Partner could have as many as 18 points, and you might miss a game. But your hand is a bit too weak for a bid of 2NT, and your diamond support is inadequate for a raise to three diamonds. Take a “false preference” to two hearts to give partner another chance. Bridge FRANKSTEWART MONDAY, ATLAST NewsdayCrossword BY GAIL GRABOWSKI, EDITEDBY STANLEY NEWMAN
