Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): If do not bend to the wishes of others this week, there will
be conflict. Someone you work on a gaming related project with has a greatly opposing view to your
own and they aren't willing to budge. You can either take their way of their highway.
Sudden changes may be in store for you, such as an offer to join a new clan or to team up with
a creative group or competitive league's staff within the community. You will surprise those in
your gaming circles, which in turn will bring you a pat on the back. Your need to obtain additional
details will lead you into strange topics of conversation on gaming forums or in IRC/ICQ.
Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. You're not fragging at peak performance right now,
but as always, things will improve.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): You're seeing red this week, in more ways than one! On top of
being a little moody or cranky, you will become rather explosive when your opinion is opposed. Control
your temper or find yourself on the outs with valued gaming pals. When in the gaming arena though, it's
all about red... maps with lots of red textures will see you at an all time fragging high! This is
truly your week shine in gaming. If you've got a tournament or league match coming up then you will
likely find yourself on the winning end of that rocket launcher! Creatively, work on projects that
will allow you to make quick progress, leaving the more tedious tasks for the moment. Those whom
you share the results with will be very impressed with the quality of your work. You may have a problem
dealing with elders, especially if you are a young clannie. Try not to take things too personally,
and don't get cocky, this will show others that you're a lot more mature than they give you credit for.
Your best game
day this week will be Friday.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Your gaming community creative projects will bring opportunities
for advancement. Stay out of other people's affairs, or you will find yourself on the outs with those in
your gaming circles, as you will quickly be labeled a 'gossip'. Don't make any rash decisions that
may affect friendships, such as abruptly leaving a clan to join another or leaving one creative
endevour to start work with another group. Don't let any money slip through your fingers this week,
this is not a good week to make computer upgrades or purchase any new games. You may find the price
drastically reduced the following week and will be kicking yourself for your impulsive purchase! Your
best game day this week will be Saturday. Your best games will be played on small indoor or dark
outdoor maps, the more hallways the better. Large, wide open fragging arenas will not suit you well at all
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Don't count on someone whom may have hinted that you'd have a spot
on their team. Whether it be a clan or a creative group within the gaming community, there is a good
chance they will pass you up for another. Try not to take it to heart, you will be more appreciated
elsewhere. Financial limitations will mean you will not be able to make the computer upgrades or purchase
the new games you've been wanting right now. Efforts to borrow the money will not go as you had hoped.
This may be a stressful week for you, causing some upset stomach problems. Try not to sweat the small
things. If you're in a clan, expect match delays or problems working with opponents. Handle the situation
with class and your team will get some well deserved kudos. Your best game
day this week will be Tuesday. Although things sound rather bleak this week, it's all not all doom and
gloom! You'll be performing in-game like a real pro!
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Avoid being overly opinionated or you will alienate friends in your
gaming circles. Think before you post in the forums, try to look at both sides of the situation and
attempt to realize that those opposing your opinions may not necessarily be wrong. Try to channel your
energy into professional endeavors this week. Be cautious of making any residential changes. Financial
limitations will not be as adverse as they appear. Set up a reasonable budget and look into ways of making
extra cash. That new gaming rig is just around the corner! Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Your best games will be played on maps with a lot of fluids, water, lava, slime, it's all good! Space
maps will be your downfall.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): You won't get the reaction you want from your friends or mate this week.
Any intimate relationships with colleagues will lead to gossip that could easily affect your position.
You have some unique creative talents, it would be a good idea to share them with those just starting
up, perhaps a tutorial is in order! If you're in a clan you will enjoy the interaction with
the younger players on your team, and you will take great pride in their accomplishments. Your best game day this
week will be Friday. Those involved in creative projects with you will not have the patience to wait for you to complete
things that they've asked you to do. You must not allow them to force you to rush. You'll be a pro with
the Gauntlet this week.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): You may have some difficulties with someone you game with regularly.
Perhaps even another gamer you live with. You may change directions in gaming, either by getting hooked
on a new game or mod. Remember who your friends are and don't leave them behind completely just because
you are hooked on a new fad. Computer problems may disrupt your routine. Double-check that things are
running how they should, time for some maintenance, don't forget a full virus scan! You may find that
someone you live with may be irritable; you're best to leave them alone. Your best game day this week
will be Monday. The BFG is your weapon of choice, and your best games will be played on large outdoor,
well lit maps.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): You may divulge private information without realizing it this week.
Talk to the person it involves and let them know how sorry you are that you accidentally spilled the beans.
They may be upset, but will ultimately understand. Be cautious not to get involved in chatter that will
cause problems for others. You need an energetic outlet that will help you dissipate your anxiety. Try
out for a clan or consider participating in a 1 vs. 1 competitive ladder. You need activity right now,
if you have any creative juices then look into hooking up with other like minded individuals to start
a project within your gaming community. Your best game day this week will be Monday. Your best weapons this
week will be the Machine Gun and Shotgun. Your best games will be played on maps with lots of dark or
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Friendships could be terminated quickly if disappointments
occur. Try to calm down emotionally about personal and financial matters. Your inability to take
advice from others may have cost you dearly in the past. Learn from your mistakes or you could
lose again. Loud mouth punks in-game are really going to get your goat this week. You may want to take
a break from multiplayer and spend some time with single player missions or bots. Your best game
day this week will be Friday. Your best games this week will be played on maps with lots of metal
textures, or maps with an industrial/futuristic feel to them. Your best weapons will be the Lightning
Gun and Grenade Launcher.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): You can gain approval, get kudos, and ask for help if you put
a little heart into your speech or request. Rewards, gifts, or money from investments or taxes
can be expected. You are best not to retaliate if members of your gaming circles or clan are trying
to pick a fight. You will back yourself into a comer if you are baited and your stubbornness will only
make matters worse. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. You're a little slow on the draw
right now, making it not the best of weeks for peak performance fragging. If you're in a tournament
or gaming league then you will have to fight extra hard to keep the upperhand on your opponents.
Be sure to warm up for a lengthy period before making it count. Your best games will be played on
maps with lots of warm textures (yellow, orange, red).
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Others may be less than willing to accommodate you this week. Try
to be there for them if they need assistance, but don't protect them to the point where they
don't learn a valuable lesson. Work hard on improving your gaming quarters, give it a makeover that
best suits your personality and you'll actually see your game skills (and your mood) improve! Your
best game day this week will be Wednesday. You may be a little too busy to spend time with your clan
right now, be sure they know it's nothing personal or there could be some hurt or suspicious feelings.
Your best games will be played in team oriented mods, but be sure to take a secondary, backup role if
you want to see your team victorious. Trying to hog the spotlight will lead to disaster.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): A change of attitude has probably disrupted your gaming
environment. Verbal abuse may lead to walkouts if you're in a clan; don't make any rash statements
you may regret later. Don't let friends or relatives rule your life. You can help them more than they can
help you. Your best game day this week will be Saturday. Your best games will be played in small FFA
groups or in 1 vs. 1 duels. Your best maps will be those with a modern look or those based on city
landscapes. You may find your skills lacking when playing as part of a team this week, if you're in a
clan then you may want to sit out for the big match, let someone play who is more enthusiastic than
yourself. They may not be a better player, but they will make up for it in effort and enthusiasm.
