You'll probably do more chatting than playing this week, and it's probably better off that way
since your game is at an all time low. Don't fret, your two left feet will straighten
themselves out in no time! Play for fun this week rather than being overly competitive. Clown
it up a bit on your favourite servers this week and you'll be in the spotlight regardless of how well
(or poorly) you play!

to take advantage of you. Unexpected events may be upsetting. You are best to get out of the
house this week. You're likely to encounter new partners if you take short trips.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): This is a great week to mingle with people you would
like to impress. You can look around for the right place and enlist some of your friends to
help you move. Travel will be enjoyable but could be expensive. You may have been too
agreeable to someone who just wanted to use you. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Don't be too quick to take over the leadership position in a group, and if you're in a clan then it may be time to step down as leader.

If you've been thinking about changing your game handle then now is the time to go for it.
