Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): If you're in a clan, this could be a week of turmoil for setting
up matches and having disputes before, during and after games. You can win the battle if you're open
and up front with league officials. Ferret out information that will hold the other team responsible
for their actions, and don't forget to keep logs and demos. You can meet individuals who stimulate
you if you join creative groups within the gaming community. If you've been ignoring your significant
other lately, then try to include them in your plans and activities. Your best game day this week
will be Thursday. You've been concentrating far too hard when playing lately, loosen up a bit and
let the flow of the game carry you away.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): New romantic relationships can develop through group
activity related to gaming events. Beware of clanmates who don't have your best interests
in mind. You may see some internal battles brewing within the clan, and you may find yourself
forced to the bench. If the situation is not resolved soon, you may want to consider moving on
to a group who will appreciate you regardless of whether you are one of their best players or
not. You will be moody and react poorly to issues concerning your mate. Try to be a bit
more understanding or you may end up spending some evenings alone this week. Your best game
day this week will be Saturday. Your best games will be played in mods with lots of arena
style maps where rocket jumping is welcome, such as Rocket Arena and Rocket Duel, where you'll
shine above the rest.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You have to feel free to come and go as you please to
achieve happiness, if you are not satisfied in a current clan situation, this may be a good time
to go solo. Money problems will get worse if you insist on making hardware upgrades or
over spending at your local EB. You can stabilize your situation if you compromise and just buy
a portion of what you've got planned. Your talents might just be discovered. Don't be shy to
promote your interests and creativity. You can learn from those who have had similar experiences.
Your best game day this week will be Sunday. Your best games will be played in small FFA groups
or in 1v1 duels, you'll be at your fragging peak on small-ish cramped maps.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Find out all you can before jumping to conclusions; secret
enemies may lead you astray. Take on tasks or extra training in the field of employment you'd
like to see yourself in. Romantically, you may find yourself interested in more than one person.
Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. If you are considering joining a new clan,
spend some time with the group before making a final decision. You may find that their goals
and idea of a good time do not quite mesh with your own. Your best games will be played in
team oriented non-CTF mods such as Freeze Tag, Jailbreak and TDM, where you'll be fragging at peak
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Don't try to deal with important issues or make changes
that will upset the apple cart. Ask a close friend for advice. Over exertion and negligence
will be your worst enemies. Partnerships could prove to be lucrative. Take a look at the
possibilities of starting a small part time business with friends or relatives.
Your best game day this week will be Friday. You can bring back the thrill of FPS gaming
you once had by downloading new mods and trying out new maps, there's something out there
completely suited to you. Spend some extra time catching up with old gaming pals this week,
opportunities may present them self to you through your acquaintances.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): You will have a greater involvement in groups; however,
they may not be to your advantage. Be careful that you aren't saddled with the
responsibilities of others. You may find it necessary to confront a situation that has
gotten out of hand. Talk to the party involved and make sure that they are informed as
to what actually happened. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Your best games will be played in team oriented mods, specifically CTF themed games, where
you will be virtually unbeatable! Maps with futuristic and industrial themes are where you
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Personal problems may be hanging over your head but
don't confront the situation. Don't get depressed, get busy. You can accomplish a lot
if you're willing to put in a little extra time. Make plans to mix business with pleasure.
A member of your clan may have left you with a pressing situation, just resolve the issue
to the best of your ability. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
You'll be lagging behind the rest in CTF oriented games and realism mods this
week, if you play competitively in these type of game modes then it may be a good idea to
sit on the bench this week.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Frustrations and limitations could cause anxiety this week. Be
aware of deception when it comes to your position, and be sure not to jump to conclusions.
You will impress others with your initiative and ability to accomplish tasks. Discuss your
objectives with peers or friends. You will communicate with ease this week, spend some extra
time in your favourite gaming forums yacking it up for a much needed release. Your best game
day this week will be Tuesday. The old saying "walk softly and carry a big stick" holds very true
for you this week. Slow down your pace, sneak up on the enemy and use the Rocket Launcher
to blast 'em away. You'll find yourself at the top of the score chart in no time.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Your efforts won't go unnoticed; however, someone you
work with may get jealous. Don't draw too much attention to yourself at work, school or in your
creative endevours. Plan to get together with someone special later in the week. Your best game
day this week will be Thursday. You will carry your team's flag to victory. If you're a part
of a clan with a big match coming up, be sure you get in on the action. Now would be a good
time to update your communication binds, practice using them more effectively to prove yourself
as a top notch team player.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Travel and learning should be on your agenda this week. You
might consider signing up for events that will not only bring you enlightenment but also
broaden your circle of friends. Don't overdo it. You need to enjoy yourself. Too much work
and no play will not only result in fatigue and frustration but also loneliness too.
Your best game day this week will be Friday. Be careful what you say to clanmates or gaming
pals this week, no need to cause hurt feelings in an effort boost your own ego. Instead you
should offer up constructive tips to those players in your circle who are not quite up to
your skill level. Single player missions will suit you to a "T" this week and rejuvenate
your FPS gaming experience.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Physical activity will help defuse your frustration.
Jealous coworkers may try to sabotage your attempts to get ahead. You should spend extra time
with a friend who hasn't been feeling so great about them self. Sudden romantic infatuations could
lead to a significant and prosperous connection. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Spend some time watching demos of the top ranked players if you want to increase your own skill
level. Practice what you see against some hardcore bots, and for a change of pace try downloading
some new custom made bots. Your best games will be played on large outdoor, day lit maps with
lots of earth tones and graphically appealing scenery. You will shine in realism mods above all
others this week.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): You are best to ask questions if you aren't certain
about issues that are confronting you. Money problems will be difficult to deal with if you
neglect your budget and splurge on new games or hardware. Your best game day this week will
be Sunday. If your commitment level has not been very high lately, it may be time to re-evaluate
your clan situation. Talk to those whose opinions mean a lot to you, heed their advice in the
matter. Team games are not quite up your alley this week, you will play much better in a relaxed
FFA atmosphere. You will find 1v1 duels stressful, if you play competitively you may want to
postpone your match until next week when you will be feeling more confident. Your aim is a little
off, spend some time tweaking your config and cleaning your mouse or game controller.
