It is possible in the coming week to be torn between following tradition to achieve security and taking the unconventional and unknown path. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Those closest to you could become so entranced by compelling business aspirations that they forget to be considerate and kind. Keep your head down and do not put fresh irons in the fire. Don’t be in a rush to get things started GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In an atmosphere of dedicated determination to succeed, you alone have the facts and the wisdom to make important decisions. Weigh the facts and err on the side of generosity to guarantee long-term security . CANCER (June 21-July 22): Reaching your goals and winning at all costs could be in the air. An intense push to receive recognition of your abilities takes much energy. The new moon tomorrow may illuminate hidden corners that need attention before you can climb further . LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make it do or do without. Powerful ambitions may be building over the next few days. It is wiser to use resourcefulness to succeed with what you already have, rather than launching something new . VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Pressure to reach your career objectives could cause friction at home. You do have the benefit of foresight to protect you from making errors of judgment. Listen to family members and gather information before making any irrevocable changes. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Home or family needs could be at odds with your business objectives and create a small conflict. The shifting heavens can bring some unexpected events in the next several days, so expect the unexpected. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You are like a dog with a bone. Concerted effort under trying circumstances can eventually spell success. You have the stamina to see things through to completion and the courage to face daunting odds. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Perfect communication with a partner can spell the difference between a troubled or peaceful future. Talk things over and make your plans clearly so that you can sidestep temporary problems. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ve got the power to make your way up the ladder of success — but you may have some trying moments. Deal with existing issues and try not to start anything new. AQ UARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Ambitious others may forget to be considerate and trod on your toes to reach the top this week. Rebellious urges to break with tradition could rise to the surface. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): When everyone else is losing their head you can keep yours. The wisdom of trusted friends and companions can help you make crucial decisions and protect you from missteps. IF NOVEMBER 11 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You may have burned the midnight oil in the past year to get ahead. Now you have reached a pleasant and peaceful plateau where you can rest and recharge your batteries for the next several months. Important matters that you put into motion this December may not bring you rewards until next June when the cosmic lights turn green and you can reap some material benefits for jobs well done. ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF Who had more reason to be aggrieved on this hand from the Dyspeptic Club’s regular Wednesday game, North or West? Against three no-trump West led the heart jack, and on winning with the king, declarer advanced the four of clubs to the seven, king and ace. Now no return could touch the contract. On winning the heart return, declarer played his second club to the queen, then a low one to East’s jack. Although East now found the spade switch, all the defense could muster were four tricks in the black suits. West was right to be aggrieved. East should have ducked the first club, allowing dummy’s king to hold. Then, with only one outside entry to dummy, declar- er could not both establish the club suit and later gain access to it, and the contract would fail. Meanwhile North had this to say to his partner: “If you had ducked the first club altogether , you would still have had a club left to lead to the king on the second round. If this is ducked, you would still be in dummy to lead a third club, and so long as clubs break 3-2, you come to four club tricks. All that you give up is possible overtricks if West had started life with the club ace.” My view is that since South made his contract, North had less of a case. Additionally, declarer’s play was not so easy to spot, whereas East should have known to duck his club ace on general principles.
