Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Emotional upheavals behind you, you will find this a much calmer and more
productive week in all areas of your life and your lifestyle. Loved ones are more apt to go their own way and
do their own thing this week. Giving someone a gift is just that... giving; do not try to attach any strings to it,
you could get a rude awakening. If you're in a clan that doesn't use voice communications then now is the time
to push for a change. Using a talk program will improve your team's game and increase the enjoyment for all. Your best
weapon this week will be the railgun, if it's alluded you before then now is the time to make a dent in getting the
motions down. Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): A young person's accomplishment will make you happy this week and since it is
artistic it will double your pleasure. Keep a positive focus on the future while you are on the job or at school and
be ready to catch those fleeting opportunities that come your way. Be careful not to lose your temper too badly this
week, you will have a high likelihood of breaking a piece of your equipment (such as mouse or keyboard). If you're
in a tense game then leave before you feel the need to slam anything! Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): A week full of surprises and turn arounds for you as you experience a time of
love and prosperity. Friends will draw close to you this week as they begin to sense your strength and your faith.
A loved one will be the source of some special happiness for you. You're a real whiz at building things this
week. If you play Weapons Factory or Team Fortress type games then give Engineer a try. You'll build your team a
defense like they've never seen before! Your best game day this week will be Sunday.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Someone you care about may call you a Quake addict this week. If you've been putting
off chores or delaying meals so you can get in an extra map then now would be a good time to show them you can take
a break from Quake when needed!
A younger person needs your help and guidance as he/she looks to you as a role model. This may be someone in your
clan or gaming circles, don't ignore them as they really need your solid advice right now. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Helping people who are down on their luck or downtrodden by the world, or even
put upon by others is your 'thing' and this week you excel at what you do. I have to add that although you excel
at this, your mate may be getting tired of you bringing other peoples concerns into the relationship. It is best if
you can lay them aside and concentrate on your loved one at the appropriate moments. You're a bit of a clumsy one this
week, be careful eating around your keyboard, as it is you could feed a family of four with the crud inside there
already! If you've been worried that your case may not be in the best of places, it's time to re-arrange your workstation
so nothing happens to it. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): You will meet up with someone this week who could further you greatly in your
career. Your ideas are solid, your business practices are sound, it's time to market your ideas and this is just
the person to help you get where you want to go. In the game, people are calling you a llama this week! Chill on
the ego trip, people will be more impressed with your skill if you're not always pointing it out to them.
Your best game day this week will be Sunday.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): You interact well with others but have a tendency to be slightly snobbish and
you find it puzzling when others resent this in your actions. To you this seems to be natural but you will quickly
find out that the others find it intolerable; apologies are best in this situation.
If you spend a lot of time on message board forums and have become part of a community then try throwing out a few
upbeat posts aimed at people you haven't gotten along with well in the past. If you tend to snub your nose at people
on servers then try a new friendly angle, it's a lot nicer to make friends than enemies. Perhaps they will see that you're not
as uppity as they may think. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Travel is for you this week as you may find yourself going on a
short jaunt for business or pleasure, perhaps to meet some new gaming pals or attend a LAN party? A friend is headed
for trouble and you try to figure out a way to 'cut him off at the pass' but that is not to be. Sometimes people
must make their mistakes in order to grow from the experience and those who aren't given this chance remains
childish all his/her life. A younger gaming pal will need your guidance more, so concentrate on giving them your best
abilities as a mentor. This will be a good week to play competitively, you'll be at the top of your game and thrive
in a competitive environment. Don't forget to utilize your full array of weapons, you tend to focus on one or two,
try some combinations and give the enemy a real power punch! Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): A wonderful job is about to go out the window unless you focus more on it than on
your gaming. Arrange yourself to fit the job description, not arrange the job to fit your personal
life style. Shorter evening play schedules and earlier to bed would be a big step in the right direction. Your family
will be needing to see more of you than they have lately, as there could be some problem that you have not been
aware of that, the solving of same, could benefit from your input as
you are very insightful on such things. You're feeling a little stagnant lately, spice up your game life with a new
mod or some colourful new maps. Your best games this week will be played on wacky maps with strange settings rather
than the typical. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23):A week of celebrations and parties as you begin the family birthday season! It seems
most of the people you know and those in your family all have birthdays within days of one another and some on the
same days! With all the fun activities don't lose sight of your goals and aspirations at work or at school as that could give a
co-worker a chance to get ahead of you for that promotion that is in the works. You may find yourself in a bit of a sticky
situation on the game scene and someone may go as far as to accuse you of cheating! Try not to get too wound up and involved
in gossip, those who know you will defend you and the whole sorry mess will be over in a flash. You'll play your
best games this week on dark and dreary maps, hit the sewers and soak up the frags, you'll thrive in this type
of environment. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): A former friend may be walking 'on your fighting side' but it is better to
keep your cool and your head in these kind of matters as that is the only avenue to winning a dispute such as
this one. Others agree with you so there is no need to pursue the matter any further. A loved one could be
planning a wonderful surprise for you this week and that is why there is such an air of secrecy and mystery
in the house. Don't pry, they will be disappointed if you do! Your best game day this week will be Monday. Unfortunately,
the rest of the week will not hold much promise for you, you'll be stinking up a world of suck on the servers. Never
fear, you'll be back in shape and kicking some butt next week! Your best positions this week will be defense, sniper
or mid-map free for alls.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): A job change is in the air for you this week as you and the present boss
have a hard time seeing eye to eye on anything. Get a job before quitting though, as strange as it seems, it is
true that it is easier to find one when you have one...go figure! If you are in need of help your gaming friends
will rally around and help you out. You may be feeling a bit anxious this week, and you know from past experience that
Quaking helps you to unwind. Focus on fragging for fun this week, rather than getting too competitive.
Your best game play will be in crowded areas, haul out that rocket launcher and blast away! Give those playing with you
a chuckle by doing a lot of rocket jumping (the practice will do you good as well!). Your best game day
this week will be Tuesday.
