Yourbirthdaytoday,Oct.21: When the signs don’t point to the way and the Sun doesn’t shine on the way and there is no one around to usher you to the way, you have to invent the way. You will never be lost this year because you’re creative, strong and tenacious. You will make a remarkable difference in your own life and in the lives of others. Leo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 25, 48, 46 and 22. Aries (March 21-April 19): Your own happiness isn’t even on the list today. What’s up with that? Maybe it was just an oversight on your part. You have had your hands full taking care of your people. Taurus (April 20-May 20): Reach out, and you’ll be immediately accepted. This kind of thing doesn’t happen every day, so take advantage of the special social stardust sprinkled over today’s efforts. Gemini (May 21-June 21): You’re creative, and therefore many options seem feasible to you. Luxury of choice isn’t always the best thing for your art. Self- imposed limits might force you to excel even more than you thought you could! Cancer (June 22-July 22): Today gives you the feeling that your destiny has already been determined. It has — mostly by you. You’ll get the early evidence that a wish you made long ago is coming true. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The uncontrollable situation rears its head again. Dwelling on it has the potential to conjure the nervous and frustrated energy in your belly. Sometimes the best option is to ignore what you can’t do anything about. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your friends have their opinions, none of which apply to you in the straight-to-the-heart and logical ways that would cause you to act immediately. You’ll ruminate and form your own opinions. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Anxious energy looks for a focus. Don’t give it one. Dissipate uneasy feelings instead through activity. Going for a walk, knitting, reading, cleaning, a movie — they’re all ways to change the mental channel. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): On the cusp of the old you and the new you, you are as mysterious as a midnight moon. Those who are “awake” enough to admire you can’t help but wonder about the side you don’t show the world. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You could be the center of attention if you wanted to be — tempting today, for sure. But the truest expression of your charisma will happen when you quietly tend to your agenda. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): So the new road opening up doesn’t look like it’s going to be a pleasant, paved walk in the park. No, this one is rocky with boulders, cliffs and the like. Still, you want to go. Your fortunes beckon you forward. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The ego is a gold fob watch, hypnotizing you into believing that other people are your problem. While other people may help you work on the problem, the root of all conflict is inside the self. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): No need to hurry. You will get where you need to be at the perfect time regardless of what the clock says. Stay cool, patient and relaxed. You’ll make a better impression in life and in traffic. Horoscopes HOLIDAY MATHIS Answer to Yesterday’s puzzle “How did you know, Holmes? I would have finessed in clubs. After all, if Moriarty has the king, I make an overtrick.” “I do not enjoy going down at cold games, Watson.” Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were reviewing a match against Professor Moriarty. When Holmes was declarer at four spades, Moriarty, sitting West, led the king of diamonds and shifted to the queen of hearts (not best). “Why not win, draw trumps and let the qu een of clubs ride?” Watson asked. Why not? How did the great detective play four spades? West had not opened the bidding but had shown the A-K of diamonds and Q-J of hearts. Hence East had the king of clubs. At Trick Two, Holmes let the queen of hearts win! He took the next heart, drew trumps, threw a club on the ace of hearts, cashed the ace of clubs and led the jack. When East covered, Holmes ruffed and led a trump to dummy to discard a diamond on the ten of clubs, losing three tricks in all. “Quite amazing, Holmes.” “Elementary.” Daily question You hold: 6 Q J 4 2 A K J 7 6 4 3 2. Your partner opens one spade, you bid two clubs, he rebids two spades and you try 2NT. Partner then bids three hearts. What do you say? Answer: Partner has minimum values with six spades and four hearts. Your options would be a pass, a bid of three spades or four spades, or a raise to four hearts. I would be an optimist here and bid four hearts. If partner’s hand is short in clubs, the play may go well. Bridge FRANKSTEWART BOSSY NewsdayCrossword BY FRED PISCOP, EDITEDBY STANLEY NEWMAN
