You are at a crossroads and wish someone else would make a tough decision for you. Rethink a past choice regarding your lover. An old friend re-enters your life and has great news. • TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Startling suggestions from a co-worker should be strongly considered. Accept compliments graciously. Offer to assist the host of a social event - you'll make points with community leaders. * • GEMINI (May 21-June 21). An apparent foe Is actually on your side. Spend time with children and you'll learn much about yourself. Damaging information must be dealt with now to avoid future repercussions - don't put it off. • CANCER (June 22-July 22). Blessings come in clever disguises. Telephone calls relieve anxiety, giving you a chance to regain once-lost relationships. Use your psychic abilities to help children or relatives. Resist your urges for sweets. • LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A well-deserved promotion Is on the way, so be patient and do not second guess employers. A relationship with a companion who is quite often too critical should be re-evaluated. Dive Into an outdoor event or party. • TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (October 8). Your ideas are more brilliant than you know. Follow hunches regarding money through November. Career changes should be postponed until the new year, when even more opportunities will present themselves. Romance with a Pisces or Aries will lead to marriage by March. Travel in January, when you can meet people who will open up all kinds of new interests for you. • VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Money is raised with little effort. Musical or inventive talents are coming out and should be encouraged by class or individual Instruction. A romance needs your patience. A friend needs your humor. • LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's not inappropriate to be needy. Ambitions at the workplace should be kept a secret until the timing is right. Remain calm when a relationship with a family member gets stormy. Compromise with a child to end a feud. • SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Work alone on a creative project, as others will only sidetrack your vision. Love sparkles at a social event, especially with an Aquarius or Capricorn. Mix-ups occur with scheduling if all is not written down. • SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relax and a problem with a co-worker will take care of itself. Be persistent with higher-ups regarding an addition of responsibilities. Surround yourself with people who know how to enjoy life. • CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). An older relative will help with a career shift. Focus on your mate's needs and a relationship will take a turn upward. A financial deal is a sure winner if you enlist partners who have prior experience. • AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Travel is exactly what a child needs to turn his or her attitude around for the better. Explore a creative venture that involves work with the elderly. A possible new love is waiting for you to make the first move. • PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Encouragement will be the determining factor between success and failure on a project, so you must enlist your lover's support.

Sam Nunn once he retires at the end of the year. He's learned a lesson from House Speaker Newt Gingrich. The House ethics committee is investigating a college course taught by Gingrich, R-Ga., to determine whether it was a political activity that violated tax laws. Democrat Nunn, who will give NUNN Says guest lectures at Georgia Tech: "I am going to go see my good friend Newt and say, 'Newt, give me a checklist of all the things you did.' And I'm going to avoid those." "I'm getting out of politics," Nunn said Monday. "They're not going to be getting any political lectures from me." A former chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Nunn has been in the Senate for 24 years. Singers Hill, McGraw wed RAYVILLE, La. — Country singers Faith Hill and Tim McGraw are collaborating again, full time. Hill and McGraw were married Sunday, squeezing in the nuptials at McGraw's hometown church just before a celebrity softball tournament. "We respect each other's work, and we also respect each other," Hill said recently. "It's great to be out on the road with someone you're dating — when you're able to see the person daily. I haven't had that before. "I didn't go out looking for this," said Hill, who is putting off her honeymoon until after their Spontaneous Combustion tour. Lovell gets the whole thing MILWAUKEE — James Lovell Jr. is finally getting his due in his hometown, more than 25 years after the mayor scrapped plans to name a museum wing after the Apollo 13 commander. His popularity as commander of the Apollo 8 flight prompted wooing from the Republican Party and a promise in 1970 from city officials to LOVELL name the science wing of the Discovery World Museum in his honor. It never happened. Mayor Henry Maier scrapped the plan, saying he was worried Lovell would come after his job. "Old Mayor Maier was sort of paranoid about it," Lovell said. Not to worry. This time, the whole museum will be named for Lovell.

Recently, I had an employment problem 'and needed a lawyer. Joe Us- tened to my story for one hour and then referred me to another attorney in his firm. That attorney handled it with two phone conversations to my employer's attorney, and nothing more ever came of it. Joe sent me a bill for $500 for his services. The attorney who actually took care of the case billed me $342. Joe even charged me for the initial phone call when I asked him what I should do. After the other attorney took over, Joe continued to ring up charges for "consultations." I found it hard to believe that a family ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. member would charge for these things. My husband, who makes his living as a computer consultant, spent three hours at Joe's home one night installing computer software and instructing his family on how to use it. It never occurred to him to charge for this. I sent Joe a letter telling him how I felt. I also sent a bill for my husband's services in computer installation and training. I haven't heard from Joe, and now I wonder if I did the right thing. What do you think? I need an unbiased, outside opinion. — New Jersey Sue Dear Sue: Joe should have told you before the one-hour phone conversation that he was going to send you a bill for his advice. I agree it was tacky and not very "brotherly." I'm sure a great many people will not agree with me, but I would pay the bill anyway. And now the plot thickens. You say your husband did not intend to charge your brother Joe for installing the com- TV TONIGHT puter. (He sounds like a sweet guy.) You had no business getting into the act. That was between the two of them. Sending Joe the bill was completely out of line. Even though the relationship is now in tatters, you should apologize for that hasty, ill- conceived move and hope the apology will mend the rift. Dear Ann Landers: Last month at my nephew's wedding, an acquaintance spilled a glass of red wine all over my peach linen dress. It was the second time I had worn it. The man apologized profusely. I took the dress to two cleaners and telephoned the Dry Cleaning Institute. All agreed, it was highly unlikely that red wine stains would come out of pastel linen. They were right. The dress is ruined. Unfortunately, that dress represents one-third of my yearly clothing budget. If this man had backed into my car in the parking lot, I'm sure he would have taken responsibility for the damage, but somehow, when you sit down together in a social setting, the rules change. Please let me know what action, if any, I should take. This man is a good friend of my nephew's parents, and we see him at large 'family gatherings. I don't want to generate any ill will. Thanks for your guidance. — B.D. in Old Greenwich, Conn. Dear B.D.: I'm afraid it's a bit late to "take action." You should have let the gentleman know when the incident occurred that you were sending the cleaning bill to him. When the dry cleaner informed you the dress was permanently stained, you should have then sent him a bill for the dress with a note of verification from the dry cleaner. I'm printing your letter for others who may find themselves in a similar situation. When a person gets spilled on and it is not his or her fault, the victim should say, "I'm sure you want to make this right. I'm sending you the cleaning bill."
