Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): You may not see your situation clearly when it comes to clan life.
You will find that you are able to clear up a number of small but important details if spend some time talking
to those in charge or those with concerns within the clan. It might be time to do some of those
chores you've been meaning to get done, such as completing a project or updating your website. You may find
that someone you game with is not too happy, but you can't really do anything about that right now.
Your best game day this week will be Monday. Your best weapon this week will be the Railgun, practice
up with some Instagib to further annihilate the competition!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): This could be a difficult week to deal with clanmates or people whom you
are working on projects with right now. Being unappreciated by those in charge could make it hard to do your
work effectively. Don't try to hide your true feelings from your those around you. You may want to make changes
that will not be to their liking. Try to compromise rather than having an all out battle. Your best game day
this week will be Tuesday. If you're in a clan be sure that you're getting your fair share of play time. If
your team is not very flexible about the lineup then it may be time to seek out a new team! Your best games
this week will be played on tall maps, maps with long death drops and multi-level buildings. Stick to the high
road for an increased frag count.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Take care of any outstanding matters with groups you deal with, whether it be
settling final details for a project you're working on, or deciding on a final match date with an opposing clan.
Unexpected changes in friendships could occur, you may have a falling out with a gaming pal, or you could make
some new acquaintances when finding yourself hanging out with a new group. You may find yourself wanting to join
a clan for a new game or mod you've just recently started playing. Someone you work with or game with could be
hopping mad if you have revealed private information that they though was safe with you. Be prepared to make amends.
Your best game day this week will be Thursday. You'll be on a real roll this week, topping the score charts more
often than not. Your best weapons will be the Rocket Launcher and Grenade Launcher.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Instant romance could be yours if you go out with friends. Your
concern with for those less fortunate than yourself will only add to your attractiveness. Someone you
work or game with may be withholding valuable information. You will need to do a lot of research if
you wish to get to the bottom of things. Stress may cause minor health ailments, be careful not to lose
your temper while gaming, or you may find yourself breaking something in a fit of anger. Your best game
day this week will be Saturday. Now is a good time to make that clan move, whether it be joining a
clan you've had your eye on or leaving the current for the new, if you've been thinking about a change then
there is no better time than the present. Your best weapon this week will be the Lightning Gun.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Look into intellectual and physical games that will test your
abilities. You can make new friends if you get involved in group activities. Don't press your
luck with loved ones and gaming friends. You will learn a great deal about yourself if you spend some time
alone. Stomach problems could prevail if you haven't been watching your diet, nausea could see you having to
sit on the bench during a big clan match. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. Your best maps
will be those with multiple levels to frag from, lots of earth toned textures will see you in the
fragging zone and at the top of the score charts!
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Depression may put a damper on your week. You may find it
difficult to communicate with others. Try spending the week catching up on any responsibilities that need
to be taken care of. A friend may try to talk you into lending them money. Keep your cash in your pocket
and offer them sound advice rather than your financial assistance. Your best game day this week will be
Wednesday. If ever Gemini needed some extra gaming time, it's now! You'll find yourself at the top of
the game and see your tensions melt away. Your best weapon this week will be anything you can snipe with,
Sniper Rifle, Railgun, etc.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): You are best not to nag or criticize your gaming friends right now. Be supportive
in order to avoid confrontations. Do your own thing. Sudden trips will take you by surprise. Difficulties with
older females in your family or gaming circles may turn out to be somewhat of a burden. You must try to lay your
cards on the table. Talk to this person and tell them how you feel. Your best game day this week will be
Saturday. If you're in a clan you may find yourself on the receiving end of some cheating or bad sportsmanship
accusations. Try to keep the hot heads on your team cool and select a single representative to smooth over
the situation in a mature manner. Your best games will be played in team mods, TDM, CTF, Freeze Tag, etc.
You will find yourself playing much better in these than you will in free for all or 1v1 encounters.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): You might find group functions tiring. You may have taken on a
little too much, but you will enjoy every minute of it. Be sure to organize events that will keep
you and your friends busy. Generosity will put you in the poorhouse if you give too much. Give your time,
not your cash, it will do a lot more for your relationships. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
You may be having thoughts of leaving your clan, give it a little more time before making a final
decision, you may be acting on a temporary feeling that will go away soon. Your best games will be played
on small maps this week, and you will perform at your highest possible level in 1v1 duels, take your
time when playing. If you are too eager to encounter the enemy you will fail.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Be prepared to have relatives or friends introduce you
to new and exciting individuals. You can meet a new significant other through work related
projects. A trip to visit relatives or friends should be rewarding. Moneymaking opportunities will surface.
Make sure that those involved are not underhanded. Take your time; do not make any decisions in haste.
Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. Clan life may seem rather tiring for Virgo right now,
take a break if you feel one is needed. Let others play in the next few matches and see how you feel
in another few weeks, don't make any quick decisions to leave the group. Your best weapons this week will
be the Railgun and Shotgun.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): You may be out of sorts if you have been extravagant or have
let friends take advantage of you financially. You should channel your efforts into
getting rid of bad habits. Unpredictable events will disrupt your routine. Travel and
communications will not run as smoothly as you had hoped. You are best not to confront
situations that deal with in-laws or relatives. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. Clan
life can be really great for Libra right now if you keep a laid back attitude. Getting overly upset over
match losses is a waste of your energy. Focus on more positive aspects of life as part of the team.
Use your great sense of humour to cheer up those around you and make them see that there's no
REAL reason to feel down. Your best weapon this week will be the Grenade Launcher, whip it out
amidst large crowds and have a few laughs!
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Your creative ability will surface, giving you good ideas
for new projects, and possibly new ways to make money. You will be overly sensitive when dealing
with your personal life. Try not to jump to conclusions. You can have a great time if you go out
with the one you love. Do whatever your mate wants; it really doesn't matter as long as you're together.
Your best game day this week will be Monday. If clan life has been getting you down recently then
think of ways to renew the energy you once felt there, whatever you come up with will benefit the
whole team! Your best games will be played on small maps, you'll shine in a 1v1 duel environment
as long as you don't get too cocky after getting a few frags ahead in the game!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Home disruptions may cause you to want to get out of the
house. You are better off visiting friends or relatives than entertaining at home. Work quietly
on your own to catch up on your online projects that you've been putting off. Don't keep your worries
locked up inside, or you may see yourself with a very high stress level. Get proper medical attention
and confront your situation decisively. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. If you're feeling
artistic this week then do something with that demo archive you've been keeping, put the game to some
music and make a flick to share with others! Clan life for Sagittarius is good right now, your team
is currently on a streak or about to enter into one. Make sure the team doesn't get too cocky or you
will find yourself suddenly losing to teams that shouldn't be able to beat you. Your best games will
be played on large open maps, use the Railgun for an increased frag count!
