Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Be supportive of family members who may be having a rough time coping with
life this week and you will be thankful you did. A gaming pal comes to you for some friendly advice and
gets it. If you've never bothered to learn how to rocket jump then now is the time. You'll find it will come in handy
in ways you've never comprehended before. Put away the RJ script if you use one, you'll be able to develop your own
skill far beyond what a script can do for you. Dreams this week may not be too clear, but concentrate on those that you can recall as they will have a
significant meaning for you. Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): A loved one gives you some good news, and you call everyone you know to shout
it out. Watch those telephone bills if you're chatting with long distance chums, as now is the time to start cutting
costs and being more conservative. Computer problems, both at home and at work, may plague you this week, but everything
should be fixed, or well in hand, by Friday. This week would be a great time to practice your strafing and strafe
jumping. You may think you've already got the moves, but there is room for improvement. If you're in a clan then
enhancing this skill will come in especially handy right now. Your dreams may not hold a lot of messages for you but rather, be a
showcase for your happiness with the coming event. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): The week ahead for you seems bright and mostly successful, but if you are single,
you will find that a new romantic interest could well become the love of your life; check for wedding rings before
you commit yourself to that first date. The end of the week will see some of your best laid plans going wrong, don't
fret, you will win most of the battles this week, let someone else have the last say on some things. Halloween is on
the way, you'll find yourself sitting at the computer stuffing yourself and buzzing from the sugar on Wednesday night.
The sugar high won't do a thing for your game, but it will keep you Quaking well into the night. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Aries is in for a good time this week as you go about mixing business and pleasure,
something you are expert in doing, and get your business on the road to success. Friends and family are very supportive of your efforts, and a friend rides to your
rescue when you run into technical problems. If you're in a clan then you will find scheduling games really tough this week,
try not to lose your cool with the other clan, show everyone your team has class. You may run into a lot of trash talkers
this week on the servers, try to resist the urge to play into their hands, ignore them instead. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Coping with friends and family is hard enough but when someone invites
friends to stay the week, and you have never met them, then you feel like hiding in the attic. Don't, you are
in for a surprise and a treat, these people will become your friends, and one will even become your best friend.
Go all out to entertain them. You may suspect someone you sort of know to be a cheater, don't spread rumours,
remember they are innocent until proven guilty! If you've got the need for speed this week then now would be a great
time to check out a mod with a grapple. You'll find yourself swinging around the map and having a blast playing
Tarzan! Your dreams will have significant meaning for you this week so pay close
attention to them. Your best game day this week will be Sunday.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Watch out this week for those who would gossip and carry tales, holding
yourself beyond reproach will send them looking for more interesting prey. A week of hard work for you and you
may be a little stressed out in the middle of the week when some of your plans get turned into a different
direction than you had intended. Someone in your gaming circles or clan are acting like a bit of a jerk. Let them
know they are ruining their reputation. A good realism mod would suit you well right now, take a look around
to see what tickles your fancy. You'd make a great sniper if you spent some time practicing the skill.
Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Grown children can pose almost as many problems as the younger ones; they will
run you ragged for the next few days. Don't take a thoughtless word to heart as the person responsible may not
realize that you were offended. Home and family are your main concerns this week, and you also must cope with
changes on the job. If you normally play defense in team games you should take a crack at offense this week, it will
suit you to a "Q"! Work on that fear of heights and play some tall maps this week, you'll play your best game
surrounded by mountains and lots of browns and greens. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Your company depends on you to take them into the future via the web and you
give it your best shot, earning everyones respect. This will be your week of greatest activity as you move
from one project to the other. Late week will find you handling your own contracts and you find that you have
been offered the best deal around and you take it. Quake maps with lots of water don't sit well with most people,
get the upper hand by practicing your shots and movement under water, the water suits you well even if you don't
think it does! You're a little nervous this week, playing games can be a great stress reliever. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): A new employee may not be to your liking, but if you are patient you can
establish a friendly working atmosphere. Virgo will have to cope with a new love this week and figure out how
to get the old love to take no for an answer. Spend some time this week thinking about map strategies, look at the
situation from all angles and you'll find yourself kicking some major butt! Practice with bots, see how sneaky you
can get. You will have some highly romantic dreams, some about your
life and others will be pure fantasy. Your best game day this week will be Sunday.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Libra should endeavor not to lose his/her cool this week as it could be
either disastrous to your love life or your career. You may feel out of sorts for a few days and this could
be the cause of your unrest, try not to quarrel with friends or clanmates. This would probably be a good week for
you to play single player, check out some classic Quake missions or play against the Q2 or Q3A bots with the intention
of improving your skill level and having a good time on your own free of arguments with others. Your best game
day this week will be Monday
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Don't let a friend discourage you about your romantic choices, chances are
good that this friend rains on your happiness because he/she is lonely, introduce this person to someone charming
and fun to be with then you will see a big difference. A week of struggling to get ahead for you but by weeks end
you will see that you have made some very good progress towards reaching your goals. Your best gameplay this week
will be on well lit outdoor maps with lots of buildings to creep around in. Surprising the enemy will be your
best strategy. If you're into class based mods then check out some new classes this week, there's one that you've
ignored that you'd play great in! Your best game day this week
will be Tuesday.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): A tough week at work with some problems to overcome, but if you just
stay cool you will emerge the winner. Spend more time with a child, as they grow up so quickly that you could
miss out if you keep putting things off. A little compromising on your part this week could go a long way in
settling an argument with a friend or loved one that has been going on for weeks. You've got a real eye for
design and colour schemes this week. If you've been considering starting a new project such as mapping, skinning or
perhaps putting together some new textures, now would be an excellent time to put some thoughts down on paper
or jump in and get started! If you play CTF you'll find the flag will be in your hands more often than not, regardless
of whether you're normally a defense player. Take advantage of your ability to rule the game this week!
Your best game day this week will be Friday.
