You will continue to see things as they ought to be, and your idealistic views pave the way for a beautiful future. November brings a big, lucky commitment. Come up with a business plan in the next 10 weeks. A winning performance at the start of 2016 will help you move up at work. Leo and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 2, 39, 48 and 16. Aries (March 21-April 19): You want to know how things work, but not quite as much as you want to know how people work. You’ll look for subtle indicators, seek understanding, search for motives and learn quite a lot. Taurus (April 20-May 20): Many people like you and want to show you how much. If you are embarrassed by constant, doting attention, then you should keep 10 paces away from the one you suspect has a crush on you. Gemini (May 21-June 21): While looking for fun, don’t expect to find it in leisure. All the excitement is bound up inside a knotty problem. The best part will be working things out with the others who are trying to solve this. Cancer (June 22-July 22): Though it would seem only fair that the one who does the most work is also the one most rewarded when the work is done, unfor tunately, it doesn’t always happen that way. You’ll have to make it happen. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): This day will spike with excitement, and then — whoosh — fall into lulls of long, flat time. It’s a roller coaster you’ll find enjoyable once you resign yourself to going along for the ride. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When they don’t act right (and they won’t in some of today’s instances), try to think of the bad manners as a sign of lacking knowledge and training, not as a personal deficit. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): As many people try to get your attention at once, your powers of focus will be challenged. Though it’s nice to be needed and popular, you could also feel harried by all the commotion. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): What you most want to do might be something you know is wrong. Just know you’re not alone. Being good isn’t easy. The average person struggles to do the right thing on a daily basis. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You might not agree with or approve of another person’s choices, but your sophistication of mind and your worldly style hinge on the one crucial attitude that peace depends on: tolerance. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the same way that bad art lacks an artistic point of view, bad dates lack a romantic point of view. You’ll have the most fun with people who know what they like, what they are looking for and why. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It’s easier for you to meet another person’s needs when you know what they are. Ask. If what you learn isn’t what you wanted to hear, chances are you’ll be willing to adjust your thinking in the name of harmony. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): So much will go right when you avoid two things: worrying about the future, and worrying about now. Without the anxious energy, you’ll enjoy seizing your opportunities. Horoscopes HOLIDAY MATHIS Answer to Yesterday’s puzzle I continue a series on card-reading. When we say someone played “double dummy,” we mean he played as if he could see all four hands: with remarkable skill. Declarer sees only his hand and dummy but can use logical reasoning to “see” the defenders’ cards. It’s easier to play well when you know what everyone has. In today’s deal, West leads a low club against 2NT. South wins with the ten, leads a heart to dummy and returns a diamond: five, jack, ace. West then takes the ace of clubs and leads a third club to set up his suit. South decides not to play for a 3-3 heart break: He leads a second diamond, and East plays low. Should South play the queen or finesse with the nine? An inference is available. If West had no further side entry, he would have led a second low club, not the ace and a low club, to keep communication with East. If South trusts his opponent to defend logically, he will finesse with the nine of diamonds, losing three clubs and two diamonds. Daily question You hold: J 9 2 10 4 A K 7 A J 7 6 3. Your partner opens one heart, you respond two clubs and he rebids two hearts. What do you say? Answer: Your partner may have six cards in hearts but has not promised more than five. One option is to leap to 3NT, giving the opening leader no more guidance. I would choose a bid of three diamonds. If partner bids 3NT, pass. If he bids three hearts, raise. If he bids four clubs or four diamonds, try four hearts. Bridge FRANKSTEWART THAT CANBEARRANGED NewsdayCrossword BY S.N., EDITEDBY STANLEY NEWMAN
