are necessary. You will find your vitality is lowered. Arguments could prevail. Dig deep,
ferret out any hidden concerns before you sign on the dotted line. Your best game day this
week will be Tuesday.
You will be able to communicate well this week. Discuss your objectives with clanmates or those in your creative group.
Try not to be too disappointed if you're not playing at your usual skill level this week, it's just a temporary set back. If you're in a clan then you'd do best to sit on the sidelines for any big games this week. Try doing some speedruns or flag runs to challenge yourself and have a blast!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Voice your opinions and contribute to the debate. Take a
close look at contracts and agreements that have been offered to you. Don't make any rash decisions
that may affect friendships. Use your charm, but don't be phony. Your best game day this week
will be Friday.
Avoid clan disputes and overly sensitive issues being debated on gaming forums you frequent.

if you've been spending too much. Attend events that will bring you in contact with the right
people. Money can be made if your are willing to take a chance. Your best game day this week

CTF or Jailbreak would probably suit you best right now.

goals. Have a heart-to-heart talk with family or friends and find out what the problems are. A new you could
help your attitude. Social events will be favorable. Your best game day this week will be Thursday.

Realism games and mods will suit you well this week and see you at your peak performance.

a precarious position at a later date. Be prepared to jump quickly if you wish to stay in the
forefront of your industry this week. Having your own business is a good idea. Work quietly on
your own and you will forge ahead. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
If you're in a clan, focus on improving team voice communications. Practice will make perfect, you just need to be a little patient with those having a bit of trouble with the whole voice concept.

to force your will on others. You can have quite the romantic adventure if you take time to get
to know your mate all over again. Stand up and propose your ideas, and you'll be surprised how

reputation. Get more involved in group efforts at work. Your best game day this week will be
If you're in a clan be sure to warm up as a team well before the game to find your team on the start of a winning streak.

Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Use your better judgment before you sign up for a costly
venture. Your mate will enjoy helping out. Much knowledge can be obtained through the experiences
you have. An older member of your family may have left you with a pressing situation.

If you are involved with a clan or creative group, get the team back on track with a good old pep talk. The person who has been trying to get into your clan is a safe bet, bring them on in if they seem like a good personality match. You can work on skill later.
Realism mods aren't your gig this week, you'd be better off playing a deathmatch variation or even taking a trip back to Quake or Quake II single player.
