YOU BORN TODAY: The native of Scorpio is a brilliant magnetic and usually powerful individual. Those born on this particular date, however, are usually more warmhearted and sentimental than their counterparts; also have a touch of the poetic and the mystic not always found in the Scorpmn. You have tremendous business acumen and may start life out in the fields of commerce or banking but. later in life, could quite possibly, abandon the whole thing (even though successful), to pursue either a more intellectual or artistic career. These leanings are within you from birth and you will probably never be content until you have given them a true outlet. You may take up art. literature or music as an avocation -- and wind up successfully commercializing it. You may have an affinity for science also, and, in this area, would he happiest in medicine.

Four hearts. Partner want to know whelher you have minimum or maximum raise His three club hid indicate extra values and a suit whcr he needs help. Your doubleto king is probably just what he' looking for. As your value have risen greally because o the club bid, you should accep partner's invitation to game b; jumping to f o u r hearts. 2. Three hearts. Here you hand has depreciated in value for you lack of a good diampm fit and the chances of makini game plummet accordingly You therefore bid three heart tell partner thai his diamond id doesn't interest you. 3. One heart. In general, with wo suits of equal length, you id the higher ranking one, and n this basis it could be argued lat the proper response is a padc. However, this rule has n i m p o r t a n t exception, ameiy, the case where you iavc a weak hand that you p l a n 0 bid only once before dropping lut of the picture. The advantage of responding 1 heart is that if partner has our-card length in either najor. you find the t r u m p fib right away (for he will bid a spade if he lacks heart support). But if you respond one spade, you may never locate the heart fit if partner has four of them. 4. Four hearts. You don't raise to game expecting lo make H, but rather to cut the opponents out of five clubs or diamonds, which they seem likely to he able lo make a f t e r your partner's preemptive bid. This aggressive tactic may very well succeed if the missing high-card strength is evenly . divided. i. Four spades. As partner is marked with a singleton or void in hearts, you can probably make at least four spades. Of course, you could double four hearts and probably beat it a trick or two, but bidding four spades is likely to produca a better result.
