Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): A lack of support and negativity may be in the cards
for you right now. Business trips might prove unproductive. Make sure that you have all
the pertinent information before any reprisals or making any moves. A little overtime
may help you reduce the workload. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Work hard on improving your gaming quarters, give it a makeover that best suits your personality and you'll actually see your game skills (and your mood) improve!
You may be a little too busy to spend time with your clan right now, be sure they know it's nothing personal or there could be some hurt or suspicious feelings. Your best games will be played in team oriented mods, but be sure to take a secondary, backup role if you want to see your team victorious. Trying to hog the spotlight will lead to disaster.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): You may be more emotional than usual. You will
feel so much better about yourself if you can control your addictions. A change of
attitude has probably disrupted your home environment. Don't rely on others to do
your work. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
A change of attitude has probably disrupted your gaming environment. Verbal abuse may lead to walkouts if you're in a clan; don't make any rash statements you may regret later.
Your best games will be played in small FFA groups or in 1 vs. 1 duels. Your best maps will be those with a modern look or those based on city landscapes. You may find your skills lacking when playing as part of a team this week, if you're in a clan then you may want to sit out for the big match, let someone play who is more enthusiastic than yourself. They may not be a better player, but they will make up for it in effort and enthusiasm.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You should be doing something special with children.
Travel will also entice you. If you're in a clan it will keep your pretty busy this week.
This will not be the week to start new business ventures or make drastic changes in
your career path. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Sudden changes may be in store for you, such as an offer to join a new clan or to team up with a creative group or competitive league's staff within the community. You will surprise those in your gaming circles, which in turn will bring you a pat on the back. Your need to obtain additional details will lead you into strange topics of conversation on gaming forums or in IRC/ICQ.
You're not fragging at peak performance right now, but as always, things will improve.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): If you've been under stress and worrying about
older members of the family, it's time to come to terms with the situation. Be
careful signing important contracts this week. Efforts made to improve yourself
will turn out to your satisfaction. You may find that someone you really cared
for in the past has come back into your life. Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Control your temper or find yourself on the outs with valued gaming pals. When in the gaming arena though, it's all about red... maps with lots of red textures will see you at an all time fragging high! This is truly your week to shine in gaming. If you've got a tournament or league match coming up then you will likely find yourself on the winning end of that rocket launcher! Creatively, work on projects that will allow you to make quick progress, leaving the more tedious tasks for the moment. Those whom you share the results with will be very impressed with the quality of your work.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Time is money and you must be ready to take
action in order to reach your highest potential. You would be wise to consider
attending lectures that will broaden your awareness concerning your professional
direction. You can easily wrap up overdue personal matters that have caused
problems for you. Rethink your motives and make the necessary changes to yourself.
Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Stay out of other people's affairs, or you will find yourself on the outs with those in your gaming circles, as you will quickly be labeled a 'gossip'. Don't make any rash decisions that may affect friendships, such as abruptly leaving a clan to join another or leaving one creative endevour to start work with another group. Don't let any money slip through your fingers this week, this is not a good week to make computer upgrades or purchase any new games. You may find the price drastically reduced the following week and will be kicking yourself for your impulsive purchase!
Your best games will be played on small indoor or dark outdoor maps, the more hallways the better. Large, wide open fragging arenas will not suit you well at all this week.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Relaxation this week will do you some good. Money can be made
if you use your ingenuity. Your temper may get the better of you if a colleague, schoolmate
or clanmate has tried to ruin your reputation. Your tendency to hesitate will drive
everyone crazy. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Don't count on someone whom may have hinted that you'd have a spot on their team. Whether it be a clan or a creative group within the gaming community, there is a good chance they will pass you up for another. Try not to take it to heart, you will be more appreciated elsewhere. Financial limitations will mean you will not be able to make the computer upgrades or purchase the new games you've been wanting right now.
If you're in a clan, expect match delays or problems working with opponents. Handle the situation with class and your team will get some well deserved kudos.
Although things sound rather bleak this week, it's all not all doom and gloom! You'll be performing in-game like a real pro!
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Opportunities for new romantic encounters
will unfold through the social events you attend. Help with your aspirations is
likely, and profits could follow. Take care of any pressing health problems.
Opportunities for new partnerships will develop through the organizations you
encounter. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Avoid being overly opinionated or you will alienate friends in your gaming circles. Think before you post in the forums, try to look at both sides of the situation and attempt to realize that those opposing your opinions may not necessarily be wrong.
Financial limitations will not be as adverse as they appear. Set up a reasonable budget and look into ways of making extra cash. That new gaming rig is just around the corner!
Your best games will be played on maps with a lot of fluids, water, lava, slime, it's all good! Space maps will be your downfall.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Try not to push your philosophies on others.
You can get the attention of important individuals but it might not be the time
to get them to help or to back your ideas. You may overspend if you travel this
week; however, the trip will be one to remember. You may have difficulties or
problems dealing with close friends or relatives. Your best game day this week
will be Thursday.
You have some unique creative talents, it would be a good idea to share them with those just starting up, perhaps a tutorial is in order! If you're in a clan you will enjoy the interaction with the younger players on your team, and you will take great pride in their accomplishments.
Those involved in creative projects with you will not have the patience to wait for you to complete things that they've asked you to do. You must not allow them to force you to rush. You'll be a pro with the Gauntlet this week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Travel is not favoured this week, avoid it if
possible. Romance is likely if you participate in unusual forms of entertainment.
You will be emotional about family matters. This is a great week to spend time with
family. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
You may have some difficulties with someone you game with regularly. Perhaps even another gamer you live with. You may change directions in gaming, either by getting hooked on a new game or mod. Remember who your friends are and don't leave them behind completely just because you are hooked on a new fad. Computer problems may disrupt your routine. Double-check that things are running how they should, time for some maintenance, don't forget a full virus scan!
The BFG is your weapon of choice, and your best games will be played on large outdoor, well lit maps.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Your energetic personality will make you the
center of attention at social gatherings. Your ability to put things together
will be appreciated by your comrades. Get involved in groups that can offer
intellectual stimulation. You could find yourself left with someone's dirty
laundry. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
You may divulge private information without realizing it this week. Talk to the person it involves and let them know how sorry you are that you accidentally spilled the beans. They may be upset, but will ultimately understand.
Try out for a clan or consider participating in a 1 vs. 1 competitive ladder. You need activity right now, if you have any creative juices then look into hooking up with other like minded individuals to start a project within your gaming community.
Your best weapons this week will be the Machine Gun and Shotgun. Your best games will be played on maps with lots of dark or Gothic textures.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): You may be overreacting to personal problems.
Be careful not to reveal private information. Don't avoid situations that may
deteriorate; try to mend them. Your time, not your cash, will do a lot more for
your relationship. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Loud mouth punks in-game are really going to get your goat this week. You may want to take a break from multiplayer and spend some time with single player missions or bots.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Romance will develop through work related
activities. Moneymaking opportunities will surface. Travel will entice you;
however, a tendency to overspend is quite possible. You need to keep the
peace and you will have to bend in order to do so. Your best game day this week
will be Thursday.
You are best not to retaliate if members of your gaming circles or clan are trying to pick a fight. You will back yourself into a comer if you are baited and your stubbornness will only make matters worse.
You're a little slow on the draw right now, making it not the best of weeks for peak performance fragging. If you're in a tournament or gaming league then you will have to fight extra hard to keep the upperhand on your opponents. Be sure to warm up for a lengthy period before making it count. Your best games will be played on maps with lots of warm textures (yellow, orange, red).
