It will be hard to avoid being struck by Cupid’s arrows, or at the very least, finding a new best friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If true love strikes, it will bind the two of you together permanently. It is possible to be torn between an adoring public that demands your attention and creature comforts. Choose wisely . GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The desire to prove your love could make you look skeptically at your wallet. Remember that true love requires your devoted attention, and that some of the best things in life are free. CANCER (June 21-July 22): That spark of interest from someone new could be the real thing. Deal with necessities first, but set time aside for social fun. If you are presently attached, a magical dinner for two could re-ignite romantic fires. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Seek fame or fortune under these delightful stars, and you will surely find it. Relationships have a special zing, and you can reach new heights of ecstasy with that special soul mate. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Tides are shifting, and relationships could get a second chance to renew themselves. The pursuit of pleasurable activities in the company of a favorite love should be on the agenda. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It is a perfect time to widen your circle of friends. Romance is in the air and love is on everyone’s mind. New loves may be torn between commitment and freedom. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The cosmic light is green for romantic romps and passionate meetings. Don’t settle for second-best when you can obtain the award-winning item. Recognize and appreciate good quality in both purchases and people. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A moment of doubt could mar an otherwise cheerful day. Take care of bills and duties before being carried away on merrymaking adventures. True friendship and devotion could blossom today . CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Mingle with others to boost your reputation. Your social skills are excellent, and you could find a new romantic interest while meeting and greeting business prospects. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): True-blue partners and friends can bless this weekend, and make a pleasant outing memorable. Lovers grow closer and friendships widen. You are at your best when entertaining others with sparkling tales. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Romance that blossoms now could become permanent, but be sure to differentiate between being loving toward friends and friendly lovers, if commitment is your objective. Your attractiveness is accentuated. IF SEPTEMBER 25 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You are re-evaluating what is important and what is not this year. You could be wildly popular and feel like the star of the show wherever you go, but deep down you may prefer to stay single or independent for the moment. Changes that were made in your life last winter may need reconsideration this month, but maybe you are preparing to choose a new direction in January and are just adding new criteria along the way. Expect some wonderful opportunities to open up in just a few weeks. The answer to your prayers may appear miraculously . ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF One of my regular correspondents, Tim Bourke, is best known as a writer, but he played this hand marvelously in the semifinals of the 2004 Australian National Open Teams. Despite four natural trump losers, Tim managed to bring four hearts home here. On a club lead he finessed dummy’s club queen, cashed his diamond ace, and ruffed a diamond in dummy. After a spade to the ace and another diamond ruff, he cashed the spade king. Next came the club ace and a club ruff in hand with the heart two. Now Tim led his last diamond, hoping to ruff it in dummy. Instead, West ruffed in with the heart nine, and a spade was discarded from dummy. In the four-card ending, dum- my had three spades and a heart left, and declarer had four trumps remaining, as West led the club king. If Tim had won this trick in hand, he would have had to lead away from the heart king. This would have allowed East to win his heart queen and West to take the last two tricks. However, Tim ruffed the club king in dummy with the heart six and underruffed in hand with the heart three, bringing his trick count to nine. A spade was now led from dummy, perforce, and after East followed with the queen, Tim ruffed low. West, with only the heart A-J-10 remaining, had to overruff with the 10 and was now forced to lead from the heart A-J around to Tim’s king, conceding the 10th trick.
