Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Strengthen your position among your peers. Stand up and propose your ideas, and you'll be surprised how many people will follow you. Your devotion will be persuasive. If you're in a clan this is a good time to get the group focussed and energized. Creatively, work quietly on your own and you will forge ahead. You need time to put your house in order and sort out what you are going to do about your personal direction. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. Your best weapon will be the Rocket Launcher, so if you play Rocket Arena then this would also be a very good time to practice your rocket jumps. Speedruns are also in the cards for you right now, if you enjoy them or have never tried them, then look into it and give it your best shot!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): You can make major decisions regarding your professional direction. You should be able to tie up loose ends this week. You can make gains if you work in conjunction with others. Take time to do something nice for yourself, perhaps spend some extra gaming time or buy a new game you've had your eye on.

You've got some bad game habits on the go right now, take a look at how you're playing and think of ways to break those disastrous patterns!

Realism will suit you well, your tactical and team skills are top notch this week.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Do not get involved in joint financial ventures. Put your energy into behind the scenes activities. If you've been considering doing some mapping or modelling this would be the time to start. You may be emotional if you allow your mate to take advantage of your good nature.

Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Use your creative abilities to come up with new ideas and directions. If you currently run a website or are part of a mod/map teams, then this is a great time to come up with some ground breaking new ideas! Travel opportunities must be taken advantage of.

Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): DDon't point your finger unjustly at others.

You will be entertained and intrigued by the logic someone least expected may possess.

Your social skills aren't at an all-time high right now, so if you're a forum chatter, be careful not to offend too many people this week! Your best weapon will be the Shotgun when used in combination with the Rocket Launcher. And watch for your game to suffer this week on maps which are usually your favourites!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Don't make financial contributions in order to impress others. You need to refrain from being the generous one in the group.
