HI AND LOIS
By Bernice Bede Osol
Dear Annie: My wife and Dear South Dakota: Are I have been married for 45 those “fun things” planned by years. We both grew up in others?

You’ve been obsessing over this for 10 years, and we are certain it hasn’t helped your marriage. Whatever it was she did, please find a way to forgive her and let it go. Dear Annie: My wife and I have a small group of friends with whom we do something fun as a group every week or so. The problem is, we are the only ones who initiate this time together. If my wife and I don’t plan or host it, we sometimes won’t hear from these people for a month or more. To make it worse, we often hear about the fun things they did without us during this time. We are tired of feeling left out and unimportant. Aside from finding new friends, we are at a loss. -Frustrated with Friends in South Dakota
Although you might have a rather wide range of acquaintances, perhaps your most consistent and most important associations will be with those who share the same ambitious objectives as you. Important bonds will be forged during the coming months. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Something rather exciting could happen if you visit places where you have a chance to make new contacts. Expose yourself to these kinds of occurrences, and the universe will do the rest. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -If you continuously stay positive, an important situation in which you’re presently involved will work out to your satisfaction, or perhaps even better than you thought possible. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Rather than discussing something important over the telephone or even putting it to paper, you’ll be much more effective going over the matter in person, if that’s at all possible. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -Financial trends are moving in your favor, so if you have anything important monetarily that needs to be shared with others, do so now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -If at all possible, avoid people who always try to tell you what to do and how and when to do it. Your personal freedom and independences will be of utmost importance to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your day won’t count for much if you fail to be compassionate when a situation calls for it. It’s not what you do for yourself as much as what you do for others that’ll afford you the greatest pleasure. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Base your social activities around friends with whom you’re totally at ease. Pretentious people will put you in a negative mood and make yours and everybody else’s day miserable. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you have responsibilities dumped on your shoulders that affect others as much as they do you, take them very seriously. Everyone will suffer if you are indifferent or negligent. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your intuition regarding the outcome of events is likely to be right on the money. If you have to make any projections for the day, keep this in mind and refrain from listening to others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Joint ventures should work out quite satisfactorily, provided nobody tries to rush things beyond their normal pace. Press forward without being pushy. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -It’s best not to make any important decision that affects the entire family without first talking things over with them. Move on only after they’ve all had their say. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Don’t hesitate to take on something that is a bit beyond what you normally handle. It’s a day when things come easier for you, and that includes handling something new.
