Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Don't let your clan put demands on you this week. You must follow your own desires, even if this means leaving the team or joining a new group. Do what needs to be done and get on with the things you enjoy doing. You can't live your life for others, this applies to all areas of your life, not just clanning. Be sure not to burn any bridges. You may not be the easiest person to deal with. Self-deception could lead you in the wrong direction. Your best game day this week will be Monday. You'll probably do more chatting than playing this week, and it's probably better off that way since your game is at an all time low. Don't fret, your two left feet will straighten themselves out in no time!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Changes in your domestic or clan scene are evident. Take care of chores that have been hanging over your head. Unexpected visitors will be a welcome surprise. Don't let your emotional partner upset you this week. You need to do your own thing and work on making yourself the best you can be. Fitness programs could go a long way toward raising your self esteem. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. If you're not part of a clan then perhaps now is the time to take the plunge, your tryouts will go very well! You'll absolutely sizzle with the lightning gun this week, use it and use it often. Your best maps this week will be those based on a team fortress style of gameplay, play defense and you'll find yourself flawlessly defending your team's base.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You can mesmerize anyone you meet with your cultured attitude and outlook. Take time to do some writing, whether it's correspondence, web updates, or keeping a journal. Put your thoughts on paper. Avoid disputes that could lead to physical abuse or loss of friends. Group activities suit you well this week. Deception regarding joint finances may set you off. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. Don't be too quick to take over the leadership position in a group, and if you're in a clan then it may be time to step down as leader. You've been questioning your abilities lately and you'll be happier to follow the pack rather than lead them into battle yourself. If you've been thinking about changing your game handle then now is the time to go for it.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Be considerate and avoid being overly opinionated, or arguments will ensue. Be prepared to lose friends or alienate other people if you insist on being stubborn.

Get social this week, spend time chatting with gaming pals in IRC, on ICQ, or in your favourite gaming message forums. You'll probably end up chatting more than playing, but when you do hit the servers you'll be in top form and will likely receive a few well deserved compliments. Practice makes perfect, spend some time playing against some hardcore bots, be sure to use a large arsenal, you need to spread your wings a bit and stop being such a rocket jockey.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Situations could easily get blown out of proportion if you have made unreasonable promises. Focus on your domestic scene. Get together with friends or relatives. Don't hesitate to voice your ideas and opinions in creative groups or your clan. You will be well looked upon due to your compassionate and giving nature. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. Your gameplay will be aggressive this week, play offensive positions so you don't have to sit idle too much. Practice your rocket jumps, they'll help get you out of some sticky situations and will earn you the praise of your peers.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Your mate is going to want and need some attention. Try to satisfy both of your needs. A party for two might be just the remedy.

Your secrets may come back to haunt you.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Opportunities will come through behind the scenes activities. Social events held in your home will be successful and entertaining for all.
