Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19):
Changes at home could lead to problems meeting up with your gaming pals for some quality play time. If you're in a clan, make sure that you run your ideas by those in the group before making permanent decisions. Problems with a clan leader or server administrator will lead to anxiety and worry. Don't get angry with your gaming buds. You are best to concentrate on playing and avoid getting involved in idle chatter. Time to expand your horizons, be it by trying out a new Mod, testing out new positions or starting to focus on weapons you don't normally use much. Your best game day this week will be Saturday!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18):
Relatives may not be too sure how to react to your gaming habits. Try to be brief with your explanations and don't allow them time to ask questions. Playing on your own a lot this week is favoured, if you normally play team games, spend some time playing Deathmatch free for all games. You'll find that you've missed this mode of gameplay and you'll also learn a few new tricks. Your need to spend money may baffle others. Don't over extend yourself, get what you need while remembering you don't really NEED a super-rig. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday!
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20):
Your erratic behavior will frighten others, clanmates or gaming pals will be confused by your sudden change in play style. Make plans to take a little time away from gaming, spend some time with your family. A little exercise should be on the agenda as well. Travel will lead to new friendships and valuable information, plan to attend a LAN party you've been invited to. You will be able to communicate easily and will be the life of the party! Members of the opposite sex will be attracted to your loyal, stable nature. You'll be going through a lot of highs and lows this week, one day you'll be kicking serious butt; the next you'll be looking like a chump. Your best game day this week will be Friday!
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19):
Don't let anyone take advantage of your kindness. You will be willing to bend over backward. You'll find yourself helping out newer players, if they get cocky then let them fend for themselves. If you lead a clan, be sure to delegate some of the work to others or you'll soon find yourself burnt out this week. Sudden changes regarding your financial status may be likely. Don't hesitate to help an older member of your clan or gaming circle to sort out their personal issues. Your best game day this week will be Sunday!
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20):
You should be looking into clubs or groups that have a similar philosophy to your own. If you're not already in a clan then now is a good time to seek one out, if you're already part of a group then this could be a good time to make that change to the new one you've been considering. Ease up on your desire to have top notch skills, get out there and just play for pure enjoyment this week. New friends will do you a world of good. You need attention and you won't get it by arguing. You will be emotional with respect to your mate. Plasma, plasma, plasma... use it and abuse it, work it into your game often. Your best game day this week will be Friday!
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21):
Join in social events and you will meet new long term friends. This isn't a week you should be playing solo, consider joining a clan or spending a lot of time playing with current clanmates. Your energetic nature will entice potential mates. Don't let family members rain on your parade. You will have amazing endurance and stamina this week which will see you at the top of your game. Get involved in competition, whether it be friendly competition with pals, playing in clan matches, joining a gaming ladder or simply hitting some one on one duel servers. You will experience great satisfaction from your encounters with others. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday!
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22):
Small groups will be more appealing than crowded servers this week. You will be able to initiate a more creative style of gameplay that you have been wanting to try out for some time. Don't worry about embarrassing yourself if your game starts off a little poorly, you'll improve your new technique as you go along! Your efforts will not go unobserved, you'll find people complimenting you in no time. You must get into a position that will enable you to present your ideas to those in a position to help you reach your goals. You're all about strategy this week, play smart and you'll have a blast. Your best game day this week will be Saturday!
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22):
Love will develop through organizational functions you attend. Use discrimination in your romantic choices. Your Quake talent will be appreciated by others. You will be sensitive about your skill level, but you've got nothing to worry about. This would be a good time to focus on tweaking your configurations, team communications and issues pertaining to your frame rate. You may need some time to yourself this week, away from Quake and your gaming chums. Your best game day this week will be Monday!
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22):
Don't expect your Quake pals or clanmates to do everything you want. You may be used to getting your own way, be careful not to be unreasonable this week. Be understanding to the needs of older players in your group right now, give them a hand when needed. You will be rewarded for your good deeds. Make sure that you don't have ulterior motives. Problems with authority figures such as clan leaders or server administrators will lead to anxiety and panic. Now is not a good time for you to be considering any LAN parties. Your best game day this week will be Friday!
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23):
Stabilization in relationships can be yours if you're willing to bend a little. If you've been riding rough waters in a clan, take a step back and agree to try out strategies suggested by others in the group. You may be on an emotional roller coaster this week. Try to keep things in perspective. Your gaming pals may not be too pleased with your decisions. Keep your mind off your troubles this week by getting more involved with community activities such as organizing fun free for all games (like guys vs. the gals), updating your web site or collecting strange statistics for the enjoyment of others. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday!
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21):
You need to expand your circle of friends. Try playing on some servers that you don't normally play on, you'll meet new people and will be happy you did so. You may have an interest in player models and skinning, you should act on this interest now. You've got a picture in your mind and you should bring the picture to life, be it with a new Quake skin, desktop background, new clan graphics, etc., it's time to be creative. Get involved in activities that will bring you into contact with those who can grant you favors. Your best game day this week will be Monday!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21):
Don't count on getting any help from teammates this week. Whether it be on a public server or in a clan match, you're going to have to do the bulk of the work. Get an early Quake start this week, the earlier in the day; the better your play. Group activity will be most satisfying, if you're not normally into team oriented games, then now is the time to give one a try! Don't let others talk you out of your hard-earned cash. Put your money into home-improvement projects or long-term investments, now is not the time to upgrade your computer or be buying new games. Wait until October or November to pick up those new game titles you're considering purchasing. Your best game day this week will be Thursday!
