Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): You're quite the hot head this week. Your mood will affect those
around you, family, friends, a significant other, you're bound to find yourself alienating them all. Once
you feel yourself calming down, do your best to make amends and restore tranquillity. Your best game
day this week will be Monday. If you're in a clan or compete in a gaming league, someone will complain
or hint that you or your team have not been following the rules. You have a very professional nature
and can sort this mess out so long as none of your clanmates let their tempers out of the bag. If you're
not in a clan then now would be a good time to join one, social Capricorn would fit in perfectly. Spend
a little time practicing your 1 vs. 1 skills this week, and don't shy away from water battles.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Sudden good fortune will help you cover your debts. Don't be
too eager to spend what's left over; more unexpected expenses are evident. You might find it
difficult to control your emotions. Try to take some time to listen to the complaints of your significant
other, and in turn, do something to appease them. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. Aquarius
players will thrive on Alien theme mods this week, see what's out there and get downloading! Some new
friendships may come out of the new mod community you enter. If you're a mapper, consider starting
a new map to display your dream house, your creativity will be at a maximum for this project.
Your best weapon this week will be the Grenade Launcher.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Problems with female members of your family or gaming circles may
play on your emotions. Don't allow harsh words to upset you. Your partner may not be sympathetic to
your needs at this time. Your best game day this week will be Sunday. A great mod for Pisces this week
would be one that combines some fast FPS action with a little role playing, have a look around and
see if there's anything out there that will suit your gaming needs! A gaming pal or clanmate may
confide in you this week, knowing that you above all others can keep their secret and give them
the words of wisdom they really need right now. Your best maps this week will be ones with a Gothic
feel to them. Don't make excuses if you're playing isn't up to snuff, things will turn around for
you again soon!
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Pleasure trips will be favorable and bring about possible
romance. Join groups of a humanitarian nature. Your leadership ability will enhance your
reputation. Your boss may not be in the best of moods this week. Do your job and don't ask
for favors. Don't exhaust yourself or a cold will set in. Your best game day this week will be
Wednesday. You will completely thrive on multiplayer games this week, single player will not be
in the cards. Use map obstacles such as lava as a tool against your opponents, you'll be able
to maneuver around such things much better than they. Aries clan members need to stop rocking the
boat, try to be a little more agreeable or you'll find yourself being shown the door! Patience
is key to a successful winning game this week.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Someone close to you will get upset easily if you are
insensitive to their needs. Take the time to help those less fortunate. Your significant
other may be ready to trade you in if you haven't paid enough attention. Your best game
day this week will be Friday. Your ego is at an all time high this week, and for good reason
since you've been playing great! But be careful not to boast too much or you're bound to make
some enemies in the gaming community. Both defensive teamplay skills and single player
enthusiasm are high this week, so Taurus could go either way. Lend your sympathetic ear to
gaming pals in need of a friend.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Invite friends or relatives into your home. Romance is
quite possible if you are willing to approach someone who interests you. Dazzle them with
your intellectual conversation. Your best game day this week will be Saturday. Your need for
social stimulation is rather high this week, so get into a lot of multiplayer games and spend
some time chatting it up in your favourite gaming forums! Your best games this week will be
played in wide open spaces, either outdoor or well lit maps. If you're into teamplay games then
play mid-map as a roamer/gatherer/soldier or in a position of assistance such as Medic or Nurse.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Opportunities for travel and socializing are evident. Be
careful disclosing information. Someone around you may not be trustworthy. You have been so
self absorbed lately. Your best game day this week will be Monday. Your creativity level is
high this week, it would be a good time to begin planning a new mapping or modeling project.
If you've been playing mostly multiplayer games lately, take a step back and check out some
single player. The Cancer clanmate is not a good follower this week, regardless of whether you
lead the group or not, give the others the opportunity to share in the decisions. Your best
games will be played on dark indoor maps this week, and your best weapon will be the Grenade
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Your high energy will enable you to take the role of leader
in group functions. This will not be the best week to try to push your ideas or concerns.
Your position may be in question if you haven't been pulling your weight. Upgrading your computer
at this point is not a bad plan. Your best game day this week will be Sunday. Your energy level
being high this week means Leo would do well in Free For All games. Try to resist your urge to
show off too much or you'll find yourself getting a bad rap. The Leo clanmate is bossy this
week, try not to alienate your gaming pals by pushing them past their limits.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Listen to the problems of others and offer suggestions
where possible. You will be a real chatterbox this week. Try to curb your tongue and let
others at least get a word in. Someone you thought you could trust may be trying to make
you look bad. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. Virgo needs organization this
week, if you're in a clan then now would be a good time to get things back on track. Regardless

will base defender or sniper. Your best maps will be outdoor with lots of earth tone colours.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Avoid any erratic behavior or it could cause isolation at
home. If everyone wants to do their own thing, let them. You may have a hard time relating
to children this week. Your willingness to help others can and will lead to fatigue if you
don't learn to say no. Your best game day this week will be Saturday. You're a real social
butterfly this week, so will thrive in multiplayer games. If you're in a clan then be careful
of those trying to take advantage of your team this week, don't allow your friends to be walked
over. Your best games will be played on dark night-time maps, and your best position will be that
of a sniper.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): This will be a very hectic week if you've made promises to
too many people. Be careful of the groups you join or the people you associate with. You may
find that you're being used. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. Scorpio needs to be
in the thick of it all this week, you will thrive in multiplayer games and become bored easily
while playing single player. If you lead a clan but have been finding yourself pressed for time,
then it may be time to let someone else step up to bat. Your best games will be played on bright
outdoor maps with lots of vibrant colours. Positions of choice this week are that of a Spy or
