Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Be careful not to lead someone on if you truly have no interest. You will meet a new romantic partner if you get involved with group events such as LAN parties, or travel in general. You need to take a good look at all sides of an issue before making a decision. Changes regarding your image will bring you greater confidence. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. Meddling will not prove beneficial, if you're in a clan then this will be especially true. Someone may accuse of you cheating this week, be the bigger person and just shrug it off. You're seeing red this week, you'll play your best games on maps with lots of warm colours such as red, orange and yellow.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): You can make a serious attempt at quitting those bad habits that you've picked up over the years. Misunderstandings at work, school or in your clan could easily lead to your demise. You'll feel much better when your slate is clean again. Now is the time to concentrate on building a strong financial future. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. In-game, practice getting into hard to reach places and you will gain an edge over your opponents. You will play your best games this week on space theme maps. Your skill level isn't at an all time high right now, best leave the hardcore competition for next week.

Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): You can make new friends and experience new things if you do a bit of chatting, loosen up this week!

Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Don't be afraid to confront situations concerning loved ones or clanmates in order to solve any problems that may exist.
