Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Don't allow colleagues or fellow students to put unreasonable pressure on you. Too much of a good thing could cause problems for you this week. You will have extra energy; put it to good use. Pushy people must be kept at arm's length this week. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. Your best games will be played on floating maps, where your opponents can fall (or be pushed *cough*) into oblivion. You'll be at the top of your game this week if you watch your gaming posture, loosen up and enjoy the ride!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Partnerships will be successful. You may find yourself in a heated dispute with a friend if you try to change your mind or back out of deals made. Don't ruffle the feathers of those you care about most. You will enjoy interaction with others this week, get chatty in IRC and your favourite gaming forums! Your best game day this week will be Saturday. Expect to take lots of tumbles in the fog of death, but never fear, your gaming abilities will be much improved next week. Your best weapons will be the Grenade Launcher and Railgun. You need to make changes in your game configurations to compensate for new hardware or a new play style you've been flirting with recently.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You will feel better about yourself and you may also meet potential love interests. Discord may arise with someone you're close to. It may be a disappointing week emotionally. Verbal abuse could lead to carelessness. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. Your best games will be played on small maps (up to 6 players), with lots of narrow hallways and corners to frag around. If you're in a clan then you'll find yourself fragging in great form for matches this week, but your warmups and pubbing may be a little shabby.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Face your problems one by one this week. Don't hold back. You may experience financial loss if you don't use good judgment. You need to enjoy the company of those who enjoy the same pastimes as yourself. Your best game day this week will be Friday. Your weapon of choice will be the Plasma Gun. Your best games this week will be played out on maps with a lot of metal framework/walkways and moving or rotating platforms, very industrial looking. You may run into some ultra-trash-talkers on public servers this week, don't join them or you may find yourself on that server's ban list!
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Get involved in activities that will bring you in contact with new friends. You will find that friends or relatives may not understand your needs this week. One-sided relationships are likely. You will find that joint ventures could easily turn out to be dead end projects. Your best game day this week will be Monday. Be careful with any computer upgrades over the next while, not just because money may be a problem, but because you could run into problems while installing new hardware that will lead to greater expenses. Your best games will be played on large fortress-like CTF maps, with two identical bases. If you don't normally play CTF then this may be a good time for you get back into it, or a CTF style mod. Your best weapon will be the Grenade Launcher.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Any out of character behavior will confuse loved ones and your mood swings will result in loneliness. Don't let opposition from those envious of your talents daunt your progress. Use your creative talent in order to accomplish your goals. You have a lot to offer. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. If you've been considering attending a LAN party, go for it! You could use a weekend away with friends. Your best weapon this week will be the Rocket Launcher. Maps with lots of fluids such as water, lava or slime will be your downfall this week, tread lightly around such obstacles or find yourself with a negative frag count!
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Avoid being overly opinionated or you will alienate friends. Friends and relatives may not understand your needs this week. Relationships may be hard to handle. Good friends will give you the honest answers you need. Your best game day this week will be Friday. Your weapons of mass destruction will be the Grenade Launcher and the Lightning Gun, especially when you find ways to use them in combination! Someone within your gaming circles will sell you out, either in chat or on the gaming forums you frequent. Don't give them a chance to give out your name as their source to the gossip.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Be prepared to neutralize any threats, someone may be aiming for something you have and want to keep. You won't be able to keep a secret, so don't go swearing on any lives! You will find good buys that will lift your spirits. Kick your shoes off and relax a bit this week, it will do you good, get in some extra gaming time! Your best game day this week will be Thursday. If you begin to feel a little blue then go on a downloading spree to grab some new maps and mods which will add a world of new life to your gaming! You will be best suited to team oriented games this week, take the lead, communicate well and watch yourself repeatedly bringing your team to victory! Your best games will be played out on maps with multiple levels with lots of ramps and stairways.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): You may have some time off but your thoughts will be on your work and your cash situation. Be careful when using machinery or electrical equipment (that includes installing new hardware, don't rush things!). Get busy making those changes to your home. A need to express yourself may come out in creative ways. Your best game day this week will be Friday. Have some fun this week with your online pals, your sense of humour is just what you all need. Keep things light and friendly, avoid losing your temper and starting heated debates. If someone is rubbing you the wrong way then release some stress with a few rounds of your favourite game! You're all about grenades this week, use 'em and abuse 'em!
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Your romantic inclination could lead to a committed relationship, or at the very least you may find yourself making an extra effort to get closer to someone, where'd you normally be too shy. Visit friends you don't get to see that often. Escapist tendencies may lead to overindulgence. Don't be afraid to pursue unfamiliar grounds. Your best game day this week will be Sunday. If you've been slacking off in your clan for quite some time then now may be a good time to sit back and decide what you want. Perhaps you'd be a better fit in another group or just on your own as a single player. Your best games will be played on dimly lit maps with lots of rich greens, blues and reds, you'll thrive in this environment. Whereas maps with lots of browns and little use of other colour will take you out of the "zone". Your weapon of choice this week is the Rocket Launcher.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Changes in your residence may be financially favorable. Hassles with your boss or teacher are sure to erupt if you speak your mind. You may begin to see some unexpected financial gains soon. Problems with female members of your family may play on your emotions. Your best game day this week will be Friday. If you're a drinker then be sure to avoid the suds if you've got a clan match coming up, your game play that night will be your team's downfall! Your best weapon this week will be the Shotgun, you'll find yourself virtually unable to miss a shot!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): This might not be a week for hasty decisions. You can make money through solid investment plans. Get closer to those who can provide you with valuable information and knowledge. You may find that purchases or entertainment could cost more than you had originally intended to spend. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. This will be a great week for sniping, either in a mod with a sniper class or just with the Railgun. If you really want to be top notch then get in some bot practice and you'll soon find yourself picking people off with a much improved accuracy. Your best games will be played on outdoor maps with lots of trees or bushes, and plenty of hills to dodge around.
