Wealth, status, advantage — you’re not driven to possess them, and yet they’ll freely be given because of the value you are able to offer others. Virgo and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 22, 38, 1 and 18. Aries (March 21-April 19): Sometimes you’re the star; sometimes you’re the extra. Today will bring another scene that requires respectful normalcy and blending in. After the director yells “Cut!” you can go back to being yourself. Taurus (April 20-May 20): There’s nothing shocking about today’s events except that you know how most of them will turn up and turn out before they happen. Are you getting more psychic, or is your life getting too predictably routine? Gemini (May 21-June 21): Many Gemini people are after success in business today. It’s a matter of finding out where your customers are and going after them there. It’s not so hard. In fact, it’s a lot easier than trying to make them come to you! Cancer (June 22-July 22): The best action is the one that has you feeling so powerful, engaged and interested along the way that it doesn’t matter to you what the result of all this effort will be. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Truth: This endeavor you’ve taken on is not for the faint of heart. False starts, mistakes, long periods of recovery, more mistakes — so what? The only way to truly fail at this is not to try at all. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s becoming evident that you don’t have an excellent plan. It seemed like a good idea, but if the efforts aren’t paying off as expected, it’s time to change your tactics. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Everyone has to start somewhere. Remind yourself of this as you look at those who have what you’d like to have. It may seem very far away at this point, but if you keep going, your day will come. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The best idea isn’t always the one that gets implicated. Who has authority? Who’s popular? It’s that person’s idea that is more likely to get traction. Think about this before you propose your idea. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The passersby appreciate what you add to the ambiance of a place, though most won’t say it. So it’s nice when a certain someone likes the song of your gypsy spirit and puts spare change in your tambourine. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Some talk in words strung together. You’ve heard enough of that. Today someone talks to you in meanings and feelings that move you to do something different from what you would have before the conversation. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Just because another person has cast you in a certain role in his or her life doesn’t mean you have to take that appointment. You’re A-list. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll save yourself money and trouble by thinking forward as to what’s coming up between now and the end of the year. There are certain events coming up that you will not be able to attend unless you make plans now-ish. Horoscopes HOLIDAY MATHIS Answer to Yesterday’s puzzle Reading the cards — my topic this week — assumes that you can rely on your opponents to play logically. Always assume that they have. If you make a well reasoned play that fails because an opponent did something silly — well, you can have a good laugh. Against today’s slam, West led the ace of diamonds and shifted to the nine of hearts. South was reluctant to finesse — the lead of the nine looked ominous — so he took the ace, drew trumps and let the jack of spades ride. He went down two when East won and led a heart to West’s king. “The spade finesse might have won,” South shrugged. Did he miss a clue? South should have asked himself why West would shift to a heart if he had only low hearts. If South held a hand such as 2, K 6 4 2, K, A Q J 8 6 4 2, West would guess the queen of hearts for him, giving away the slam. South should judge that West is trying to dissuade him from taking a finesse that will win. South should play a low heart from dummy at Trick Two. Daily question You hold: A K 9 3 A J 10 7 6 4 K 7 5. Your partner opens one diamond, you bid one spade and he raises to three spades. What do you say? Answer: Partner has four-card support and a hand worth about 17 points in support of spades. A direct jump to six spades might get you to a good contract in a hurry. If you prefer to go slowly, cue-bid four hearts to show your side ace. Then if partner encourages by cue-bidding five clubs, bid six spades. Bridge FRANKSTEWART SEETHELIGHTS NewsdayCrossword BY BILLIE TRUITT, EDITEDBY STANLEY NEWMAN
