Do you see a brighter future for me with a Cance- rian born My birthday is For those with moon in Capricorn (that's you, Leo dear), a secure home life is a basic need and it often requires some time and maturity for this important goal to be met. In the past few years, as Scorpios have experienced personality transformations due to Pluto's influence, those with Capricorn moon have been buffeted by the transits of Saturn, Uranus and Neptune through their emotional lives.
So many feelings have assaulted these natives that they are indeed mistrustful of their own instincts and emotional responses. When all of this turmoil has been absorbed, you will be a real grown-up, wise and self-possessed, with the deep security that comes only through experiencing loss and discovering that, in the long run, you cannot lose what is truly yours. Your Cancerian friend has many planets compatible with your own, but your chart is stronger than his; before you make a permanent commitment, learn a great deal about each other. Make sure you are truly healed from your marriage before you commit to another one. CELEBRITY INSIGHTS: Meg Ryan has such an adorable smile that you may not realize right away the power of her Scorpio moon energies.
Venus near the sun and Mars near the moon give her a winning personality and a passionate emotional nature. She needs a role that shows the strength of her inner being. 1992 Tribune Media Services, Inc. LET'5 5EE, VOU'KB A6AJNSTHEATINC?

Hjordis Eythorsdottir, one of Iceland's many promising young stars, sitting East, found a spectacular defense in the Women's Team event at the recent Nordic Championships. North-South arrived at a reasonable three-no-trump contract after East opened one heart. West led the king of hearts, taken by declarer.
Now South made an error by leading a club to the ace. Desperately needing an entry to partner's hand for a heart lead through dummy's jack, East jettisoned the king of clubs under the ace! Declarer had no way to come to nine tricks without clubs, and no way to develop the suit without letting West gain the lead for the killing heart return. Declarer went down three tricks. Declarer's technique left something to be desired. East almost surely had the king of clubs for her opening bid, so declarer should not have permitted the defender to get rid of the offending monarch.
At trick two declarer should have crossed to the table with a spade and led a low club toward the queen. East can now be forced to win the club trick, allowing the suit to be run. Denied an entry to partner's hand. East cannot break the contract no matter how she discards on the clubs. Try it if you don't believe us.
