the Quake servers. Organize your papers, clean up your computer area and other rooms you spend a lot of
time in. Getting organized will help you to relax, thus improve your game! Friends and relatives may be
hard to take this week. Don't blow situations out of proportion or you could find that others will

yourself exhausted and open to colds and infections. Your best game day this week will be Friday.

Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Be sure to spend time helping children with projects that are too
