Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Financial limitations are likely if you take risks.
You will have extra energy; put it to good use. Romance may be likely if you travel, perhaps on
a trip (short or long) you take over the holidays. Verbal abuse could lead to carelessness. Your
best game day this week will be Sunday.
Fast paced free for all games is where you'll stand on top of the score chart this week. Take a break from team competition to tone up your skills in situations where you are out numbered, and be sure to vary weapon usage a lot to get in some extra practice with those you don't use often. The Railgun will be your best weapon this week, practice up against the bots before heading out to the servers.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Your ability to relate will close the generation gap.
Your ability to converse with charm will entice someone you may have had an interest in
for some time now. You need to look into new philosophies. It might be best not to spend
your money on luxuries this week. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Clan life is good this week, and you're well suited to the lifestyle. Your team's game is right on target, but with a bit of brushing up on communication you will rise to the top. Your best games this week will be played on small gothic or warehouse type maps. You'll play best in small groups, 1 on 1 in particular. If playing team games, avoid the middle of the maps where you may be out numbered, large groups are not your strong suit in-game right now.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Don't be too quick to let friends and relatives know
what you're up to. Your ability to stand out in a crowd will bring you the recognition
you desire. Think about your budget before booking a trip. You may find yourself in a
predicament with family members. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Watch for some possible clan turmoil this week which would ultimately lead to the break-up of the group. Let the unhappy members leave and recruit new like-minded members. Keep spirits up with humour and reason to avoid breaking up completely. Your best games this week will be played on large fortress style maps. Keep an eye on your FFA frag count on Space maps this week, although you may not be partial to space style maps, you'll totally rock on them!
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Socially, you need a fast paced form of entertainment.
Your partner may make you feel jealous and unloved. You won't get the reaction you want
from your mate this week. Your high self esteem will benefit others by example. Friends
will be loyal and caring. Your best game day this week will be Sunday.
Your skill level is a bit on the low side this week. Concentrate on playing for fun rather than anything overly competitive. If you're part of a clan, sit on the bench this week and let others take a turn. But stick around to support your team, your good mood will help to put them in the zone! You're very chatty this week, spend time socializing and remembering why you enjoy being a part of the gaming community. Put heavy responsibilities on hold for a while so as to have a bit of fun.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Travel will stimulate your need to experience exciting
new things. This is a wonderful week to look into courses or hobbies that interest you.
You will have to watch out for minor health problems related to stress. Be sure to take
adequate time to unwind. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Your best games this week will be played in teamplay game modes, however, TDM and CTF will not do it for you. If you've been meaning to check out some new mods then now would be a great time to do so. You may find that on top of some great new gameplay, you will find a new community from which you will make several new friends.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Try not to discuss important matters with colleagues.
Property investments will payoff. Something is causing upset and confusion on the home
front. You can't lock your partner up and if you keep restricting their freedom you may
be left out in the cold. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
When it comes to clan life, it may be time to shop around a bit. Although the sense of responsibility to stay with the current group is strong, you may need something more to make you happy. Try playing solo for a while, see what offers come in and scope out potential new clans well before joining. Your best games this week will be played on small indoor maps with lots of bright colours.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Be careful when dealing with loved ones. Don't let
friends or relatives make you feel guilty if you're not able to attend one of their
affairs. Keep an open mind when dealing with youngsters. Make changes to your living
quarters that will please the whole family. Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Problems with opposing teams may cause a headache and put your group at odds with one another.
Put some energy into home improvements this week, even if it's just a matter of cleaning up your
computer area, you'll feel so much more organized and at peace after this is done!
Your best games will be played in teamplay, games such as vanilla TDM and CTF will be your strong suit.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Erratic behavior at home may be hard to handle. Money
can be made if you use your ingenuity. Your communication skills are at an all-time high.
Be sure to question any detail that you feel could leave you in a precarious position
at a later date. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Clan life may be a mixed blessing this week, you'll enjoy the games and practices, but the outcome will likely not be in your team's favour. Try to keep spirits high regardless of any losses.
Creatively you will shine in any project you undertake, if you're currently not involved in any sort of development tasks then now would be a great time to take up mapping, modelling or coding.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Travel will stimulate your need to experience exciting
new things. Don't let someone try to bully you into doing things their way. Compromise
if you wish to have any fun at all. Try not to overspend on friends or family.
Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
You could easily lose your temper in your clan. Don't push your opinions or ideas on others. If they don't want to get with the game then work some magic by yourself.
You'll receive a great rush playing with your clan this week, as your team may find itself winning a match that no one would have expected you to conquer.

if you put a little heart into your speech or request. You may find yourself in the midst
of a pretty good deal. You could make extra cash through creative hobbies. Changes

family in the projects you have set out to do. Get out and get active. Make sure all of
your travel and driver's documents are in proper order. Look for something entertaining
to do. You've got that competitive edge. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Clan arguments with other teams will give you a headache and may make you wonder if you really want to continue on with the group.

Play some tunes in the background to get into the groove and see yourself with a greatly improved frag count.

routine that promises a better looking, more aware individual. You can enjoy the company
of others and come in contact with an ideal mate, if you get out and mingle. Keep tabs on
your spending. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Back to basics this week, your best weapon will be the rocket launcher, practice rocket jumping to add some extra dexterity to your game.
