You will be happiest if you are allowed to roam footloose and fancy free for the next few days. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Business strategies could suffer from negative feedback or require intense energy to get off the ground. Better timing can be had in the weeks ahead. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take as few significant steps as possible right now, but gather information and let your views be known. Your words carry weight and your wise evaluations may help to sort out convoluted situations. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Longstanding situations that involve partners or relationships are coming to a peak. Keep a watchful eye on your piggy bank and avoid throwing good money after bad. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Although big ambitions could be frustrated under these celestial conditions, you can still get an enormous amount of work accomplished. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The spirit of the day is intense and ambitious. Much can be accomplished because you have the necessary information to stay on track and retain a balanced outlook if sweeping changes are proposed. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): A serious mood is not conducive to carefree entertainments so prepare for a quiet weekend. Don’t push for romantic commitments now — your plans could backfire. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may wish to launch a business project, but it is difficult to untie it from the dock of past experience. Caution can both hold you back and steady you in rough waters. It is better to wait in a safe harbor than risk turbulent unknown seas. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Trust that partners or significant others will give you the support and advice you need. More stable conditions are ahead, so refrain from making major moves no matter how tempting it is to act now . CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Patience is your best virtue. Long-lasting pressures are about at their peak. With your dedicated determination you can move mountains if you wish, but all you will have is a bunch of rock in a new place. AQ UARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If push comes to shove you are likely to take off for places unknown to escape the fray. You may be in contact with others who are highly precise and their dedication to duty could rub you the wrong way . PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The wheels are turning and churning around you, but you have the benefit of loving companions and wise advice. You are willing to work hard to get ahead but set your heart on tranquility and peace as the ultimate reward. IF NOVEMBER 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You are a powerhouse of ambition and determination — plus you have the star quality necessary to make your mark in the business world. Winning big requires strict attention to the rules and the ability to manage your time and resources carefully. Don’t cut legal or ethical corners to get ahead or you may have to pay the piper in February, April, or next fall when others may seem more critical than usual. But don’t be a pessimist either; helpful stars next July should remove restrictions or offer you an outstanding opportunity for lasting happiness and success. ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF When West led a trump against four spades on this deal from a par contest, most Souths got off on the right track by winning, then playing dummy’s club ace and ruffing a club. Next came a spade to dummy, and another club ruff eliminated that suit. There are now two possible losers in each red suit. This being a par contest, you should assume that the diamond honors lie unfavorably and that you would not be able to guess the heart jack. Some declarers went to dummy with a trump to play on diamonds, but the bad split there reduced them to locating the heart jack. On the auction, West was more likely to have that card — no luck there! Declarer was correct to eliminate clubs. But to leave a defender with a choice between giving a ruff and discard and returning another suit into one of the tenaces, South needed to leave trump in both hands. The winning move, after drawing trumps and stripping off the clubs, is to play the diamond ace and a low diamond from hand. Now, however the outstanding diamonds and hearts are distributed, the defense can take no more than three tricks. When one defender wins the second diamond, a heart or club is immediately fatal. If East has a low diamond to play, South can cover it to ensure setting up his fourth diamond, on which he could discard dummy’s heart loser.
