Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Romantic encounters are evident through travel or educational pursuits. Coworkers may not be completely honest with you; try not to rely on help from others. Use your added discipline to get what you want. You will be able to talk to your mate about future goals and perhaps make plans for the two of you to take a vacation. Your best game day this week will be Saturday. Your best games this week will be played in realism mods and your best position will be that of a sniper. Your aim is good this week, skill factor is high. You may want to practice your railing against bots to further improve aim. Your clan will definitely notice that you are dead on and will give you the pat on the back you deserve.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Take care of any paperwork concerning institutional or governmental agencies. Don't be too quick to judge your loved ones. Entertainment should include the whole family or a lot of your friends, now would be a great time to plan or attend a LAN party. Take an active role in the planning, your energy level is quite high right now. 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. Give it some more time before making a final decision and encourage others to "chill out" a bit. Your best games will be played early in the day when you are playing cold with little warmup. Play some tunes in the background to get into the groove and see yourself with a greatly improved frag count.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Don't blow situations out of proportion. Watch for empty promises that may give you false hope. Travel will be favorable and bring you the greatest rewards, go ahead and plan to attend that LAN party or tournament you've been thinking about. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. Back to basics this week, your best weapon will be the rocket launcher, practice rocket jumping to add some extra dexterity to your game. Your most frag filled confrontations will take place in large arena style maps. Watch for your clan to start on a winning streak, it may be short lived but it will be sweet none the less. The group may be at odds right now, wondering whether to move to a new game or mod. You may find yourself looking for another team to join.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Get busy on those home improvement projects that you've been procrastinating about. You'll stay out of trouble if you pick projects that will benefit the whole family. Things at work have been moving quickly and you may be feeling a little uncertain about the changes taking place. Make alternative plans just in case you need to make a career shift. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. 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.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): You may find that your family responsibilities are piling up. Don't let others try to create unwarranted guilt if you can't meet their demands. Consider applying for a job in another part of the world. Your best game day this week will be Friday. 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. 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.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): You must not let fellow workers take advantage of your fine talents. If they want help that's great, but if they try to take credit for your work, you will have to set them straight. You will be ready to jump on anyone who gets in the way of your progress. You are in a high energy "get it all done" mood and you'll have little patience with those who are slacking off. Your best game day this week will be Sunday. 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!
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): You'll feel good about yourself this week after helping others emotionally. Whether it be in chat on IRC/ICQ or in a forum, you'll be helping just by listening, even if you don't realize it immediately. Your hypnotic eyes will capture the hearts of those who interest you. Your best game day this week will be Monday. 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.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): You need to mingle with people who can spark enthusiasm and confidence in you. Look into joining groups that can give you hands-on advice about your future goals, and that will help further your career. You may find yourself in a heated dispute with a friend this week. Be careful not to let things get too out of control or you may lose this friend for good. 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.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Hard work will bring rewards. Travel will lead you in new directions. Don't be afraid to pursue unfamiliar grounds. You will find the excitement gratifying. Your mate may not be too sure about your intentions. You can evade the issue as usual by being affectionate and fun loving. 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.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): You will have difficulties spreading yourself between gaming and home life. Family or a mate may be giving you an extra hard time regarding the amount you play these days. You will need to balance things out better if you wish to keep everyone happy. Do what you can, but don't let the situation stress you out too much. Arguments may flare up in your clan. 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 game day this week will be Sunday. Your best games will be played in teamplay, games such as vanilla TDM and CTF will be your strong suit.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): You're in need of some recreation right now. If you've spent too much time on work and not enough on play, then now is the time to push aside the pencil and have a little fun for a while. You need to be active and spend time with friends you enjoy. Shopping will see you finding some great bargains this week, so if you've been looking for a new game or hardware upgrades then start sniffing around, now is the time. 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. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. 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.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Travel may be on your mind right now, if you're considering attending an upcoming LAN party then go for it! You will find that valuable knowledge can be gained if you are willing to listen, whether it be in a forum, IRC or in person, keep your ears to the ground. You should catch up on correspondence. You will do your best work on your own. You should be setting up interviews or sending out your resume. You need a job with more responsibility and a higher wage & enjoyability factor. Signing up for courses will be beneficial. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. 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.
