What you do for love at the end of the year will have magical results. Family bonds in fun and mischief. Your social swirl gets interesting with the additions that February brings. Cancer and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 22, 27, 49 and 5. aries (March 21-April 19): The usual way: When all is said and done, more gets said than done. Your way: Silently and with razor-sharp intention, do it. Then walk away. If anyone is talking about it, it won’t be you. taurus (April 20-May 20): If you don’t get it on the first try (or the second, third or 70th try), chalk it up to building your character. It’s one of the few things you can build that will endure. gemini (May 21-June 21): Maybe you like someone more than you care to admit or more than is appropriate for your current position. Have no fear. That person who makes you nervous will also bring out your best. Cancer (June 22-July 22): You think of love as being sweet, kind and undemanding. True, but love can also be tough or even harsh. Sometimes love demands that we step up and fulfill our potential. leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Your style is to go in with a formal tone and keep that up until you’re sure that respect has been paid. Then you’ll ever so subtly test the boundaries of casualness. virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re right. You know it. The question is how far you should push the things you’re right about. Too far, and you’ll alienate the others. Not far enough, and your conscience will nag you. libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): People tend to picture freedom in extremes of wealth or homelessness, but there are ways of being freer in your life that don’t involve being rich or without responsibility. scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’re so intuitive and aware that you will read more meaning into a situation than those directly involved might care to. Your insights are accurate, though best kept to yourself for now. sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Top photographers insist that it’s the eyes behind the camera and not the camera itself that make for a great image. This metaphor will be reflected in the brilliant results you get today with minimal equipment. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Accept that there will be some glitches, and go through them calmly with your head held high. Don’t waste your breath apologizing for minor offenses. No one expects you to be infallible, and you shouldn’t, either! aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): As you concentrate on building your team and increasing your number of fans, it will feel like you’re giving, always giving. Are you giving too much? At this point, you can’t give too much. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Buckle up because you’re about to hear (ad nauseam) about the astounding accomplishments of others. Are you surprised that this does not ignite your spirit of competition? The reason is that you’re in a league of your own. horoscopes HOlIDAY MATHIS answer to Yesterday’s puzzle This week’s deals have treated reading the cards as declarer: using logic to visualize what the defenders hold. Cover the East-West cards and try to make five clubs. West leads the king of hearts and continues with the deuce to East’s ace. East then leads a diamond to dummy. For the contract, how do you play the trumps? In real life, the declarer noted that he had eight clubs. The percentage play was to finesse for the queen (as per the old wisdom about “eight ever”), so South led a trump to his jack. Down one. Instead of relying on percentages, you should draw a logical inference from East’s defense. East knows from West’s lead of the deuce of hearts that you had three hearts. If East’s trumps were Q-x-x, he could beat you for sure by leading a third heart and forcing dummy to ruff. Since East gave you a chance to take a finesse, you shouldn’t take it. Cash the A-K of trumps. luckily, the queen drops, and you can draw the last trump and claim. daily question You hold: ♠ A K 10 5 3 ♥ J 5 ◆ A K Q 6 2 ♣ 8. You open one spade, your partner responds two hearts, you bid three diamonds and he raises to four diamonds. What do you say? answer: Partner has 10 or more high-card points with four-card or better diamond support. Bid 4NT, Blackwood. If he shows one ace, bid six diamonds. If he shows two, bid 5NT. If he then shows one king, you can expect to take 13 tricks by setting up the spades or hearts. Bid seven diamonds. bridge FrANK STEWArT saturdaY stuMPer newsday Crossword BY DOUG PETERSON, EDITED BY STANLEY NEWMAN
