Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Be careful not to hurt the ones you care about. Even if it's
just an offhand comment regarding a friend's skill on a public server. They will not be in the
right frame of mind to put up with tactless comments. Your creative ideas must be put to good use,
if you are not already involved in a project then now would be a great time to begin one. You can
ask for favors or run your ideas by those who will be able to support your objectives. Go after
your goals. May may not be well received by your significant other due to the time you will have
put forth to achieve your goals. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. This week's
skill factor: Your mind may not be completely on the game this week, too many other things going on.
You'll hold your own, but it may be best to sit the bench for any games that really count.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Your charisma will no doubt attract a lot of attention. People
will hang on your every word in gaming forums and IRC. Use your intellectual approach to get the
best results. You're in the mood to spend time with your significant other, so put projects or
games on hold for a day or two. Try not to confront issues until you have the strength to cope
with the outcome. Put in some overtime or cut back on purchases until you have recent debts incurred
under control. Your best game day this week will be Friday. This week's skill factor:
Your skill level will be fair to good as per usual, but you're in the mood for a bit of a break.
Spend some time with your honey and use your game time for a few laughs rather serious game play.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): If you're looking to do something worthwhile, consider
volunteer work. Even if it's something as small as helping a new clan out with their web design.
Regardless of what your good deed is, it will be quite rewarding for you. Be careful not to push
your luck or take too much for granted when dealing with other clans this week. They may lead you
to believe that everything is fine, but once it's time to play the game they'll be full of
excuses and delays. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
This week's skill factor: Your focus is more 'behind the scenes' this week, working on projects, organizing
clan activities. Your skill level will be adequate, but don't expect any big wins until you
get back into the zone!
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Sudden changes regarding friendships are likely to occur
if you have tried to change others. Get involved in groups or hobbies that attract
you, now would be a good time to join a clan or creative group if it's something you have been
considering. Home improvement projects, especially those areas in which you game and work, will
benefit you greatly. Spruce things up to clear the clutter from your mind and improve your
overall mood and fragging experience. Expect to pay more than anticipated for entertainment or
other purchases. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. This week's skill factor: Game
on! You'll be unstoppable this week, be sure to schedule any matches around your mood. If you're
feeling hot you'll BE hot!
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Problems with your mate will develop if you don't let
them have their way. You have two choices: Get out on your own, or bend to your mate's
whims. If you want things to work out then it will likely require breaks from
gaming. Take care of the needs of elders in your family. Lay your cards on the table regarding
your personal direction, stop thinking and start doing! The break you've been waiting for is
just around the next corner if you put forth an effort to achieve your goals. Your best game
day this week will be Thursday. This week's skill factor: This is a great week to practice
moves that have been eluding you. Learn the tricks and you'll find your skill level improving
by more than you'd have ever expected.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): It's a great week to attend social functions. You will
really enjoy all forms of entertainment this week. Rent a movie, purchase that game you've
been thinking about, you'll have a blast regardless of what you do. Sudden romantic encounters
are quite likely, but discretion will be a must. Don't expect new acquaintances to be completely
honest about themselves. Your best game day this week will be Friday. This week's skill factor:
All signs point to frag-o-licious! You'll be at the top of your game if you block outside
noise and interruptions. Put on some head phones and let 'er rip! You'll be unstoppable in
any mod you play.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Your sensitive nature will allow others to read you
well. Don't volunteer private information about yourself unless you're prepared to be
talked about behind your back. You will be encouraged to get involved in a moneymaking
venture. Although it does look promising, be careful not to overextend yourself or you
will lose in the long run. Your best game day this week will be Sunday. This week's skill
factor: Your mind simply isn't on your game right now, try not to get too discouraged,
things will improve again soon! In the meantime, play for fun rather than trying to focus
on big wins, avoid organized matches this week.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): The home environment will be unpredictable this week. Don't
ruffle the feathers of those you care about most. You'd be wise to control your spending
so your debts don't get out of hand, hold off on game purchases and hardware upgrades for the
moment. Partnerships may be strained if one of you has been erratic and hard to deal with. Try
to stay calm and understand both sides of the situation. Socializing or travel will lead to new
partnerships. Your best game day this week will be Monday. This week's skill factor: Your
skill level will be average this week, rather than becoming annoyed with your performance,
consider taking a break by delving into some single player action or taking your mind off
competition with some speed runs.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Limitations at work might set you back. Be careful when
dealing with superiors. Do your best, but don't make too many promises or you may exhaust
yourself. Look into some personal changes. Invite friends in for a visit or organize a fun
free for all game with clanmates or those in your gaming circles. You will have the urge
to make physical changes, new haircut or perhaps some body toning, you'll feel great about
yourself if you follow the urge. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. This week's
skill factor: Physically you're not quite into the action this week, concentrate on getting
some extra sleep and worry about your performance next week. Your best games will be played
in realism mods on maps with lots of water, such as pier or ship type settings.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): You will be able to contribute a great deal to
a clan or creative group that you join. Your communication skills will bring you popularity and
increased self esteem. People will hang on your every word in your favourite gaming forums
or in IRC, enjoy the limelight! Your high energy will help you through this rather hectic week.
Your best game day this week will be Thursday. This week's skill factor: You're totally on the
ball right now. If you are in a clan you will likely find yourself the star of the team
this week. Be sure that you're available for any big headliner matches, you'll be unstoppable,
expect a lot of pats on the back and compliments this week!
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Get motivated and follow up on some self-improvement
resolutions. It might be time to shake a leg and do a personal makeover. Try not to say
the wrong thing at the wrong time. Clanmates will be of major concern if you haven't kept
the lines of communication open. This is a great week to mingle, if you've been keeping
to yourself or have lost that loving feeling towards your favourite games, now is the time
to let loose and bring back the excitement you once felt. Your best game day this week will
be Tuesday. This week's skill factor: Your individual skills are decent this week, but team play
is where you'll really shine! If you normally play FFA and need a bit of an ego boost then
kick up a team game to really let loose and get some much deserved kudos!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): You will be in an overly generous mood this week.
Your best efforts will come through hard work. Don't hesitate to enlist the aid of friends
or family if you have a big project to finish. Emotional upset will cause problems with stress.
Kick back and have some fun, you deserve it. Some fun, fast paced free for all games will
help loosen you up! Your best game day this week will be Saturday. This week's skill factor:
You'll play like a real champ, but it won't come easy, you'll really need to work your stuff to
keep the lead. Probably because your heart just really isn't in it at the moment, play for fun,
leave the competitive stuff to the others. You'll have the most fun playing team games this week,
specifically CTF, Fortress, Weapons Factory and Jailbreak type mods.
