Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): A week of ups and downs that you could probably
have done without but alas, you must cope and cope you do. Fellow employees, students or
gaming pals/clanmates could be a source of irritation for you if you do not still the
rumors that have suddenly started to surface. You could be in for a 'Peyton Place' type
of situation if you let them go unchecked. The Lightning Gun is your best friend this week,
use it and abuse it for a seriously increased frag count! Your best game day this week will
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Making promises you can't keep just to restore
the peace either at home, on the job or in your gaming circles would be the worse thing
you could do to solve your problems this week. Try stating right out what you can and
cannot do, or will or will not, as this clears the air for you to move forward with your
life and your ambitions. Younger people or children may be a concern for you this week but
you are the rock they lean on and you come through for them in a time of worry. Your best
game play this week will be on two fort style maps, ones with identical castles or
fortress-like bases. Take the offense and strut your stuff, the map will flow like water
for you, you're rocking hardcore this week! Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Your new business is off to a flying start but you
are going to have to get more organized this week with record keeping. By all means
keep it on the computer but print it out or get a book to keep a paper record...just
in case. Advice is cheap this week so be sure you examine it well before you take it
as gospel and go with it; you have some good ideas of your own, use them well.
You may have been recently hooked on a car racing game, this week will mark your return
to one of your first loves -- Quake. A friend has been prompting you to check out a new
mod, stop being lazy and give it a go! You'll soon be leaving that racing game in the
dust. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): A good week to do some catch-up on some projects you
have been putting off. Enlist the help of family members. Do not worry too badly about
money, things might be tough but they are going to get better. If you've been in need
of some computer upgrades then just give it a little longer and you'll find yourself
in a position to upgrade soon. If you're in a clan or a gaming group, you will find
yourself being pushed toward taking a more active leadership role within the group.
Although you'd make a fine captain, do not accept the post if you're not really keen on it.
Your team will be quite upset if you accept and then leave the job so soon after the
election! Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): A social function that you may not wish to attend
this week could be the very one you really need to attend! There is a good chance that
you will meet a person that is interested in not only investing in your enterprise but
is also well versed in the art of advertising and can be invaluable to you and your
company or business plans. If you've been considering going to a LAN party then now would
be a good time to finalize those plans! Out of town visitors will warm your heart this week
and you will enjoy every minute of the visit. If you've been playing in a slump lately
and even your bots are mocking you, don't despair, things will pick up soon! You've been
a bit clumsy in the game, but you'll wake up soon. Download some new maps for a
refreshing change and practice your Railgun! Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Your web business will demand most of your time this
week as you get the show on the road. Meeting with like minded individuals will also
give you a boost so why not find yourself a seminar to attend in your spare time. A loved
one has obtained a measure of success and possibly fame this week and you spend time
celebrating this good fortune. If you've got a big match this week then be sure to warm up
at least 30 minutes prior to the game. You'll see yourself as the star player that night!
Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): The round of job applications that you or your
mate have been putting in finally gets some attention as you are notified to come
in for interviews. When the dust clears there will be several offers to choose from.
Signing up for evening courses to improve job skills will make a big impression
on potential employers. You may find yourself with a decision to make this week --
play in the big match or do something with your significant other. If you can't come
to a compromise then choose your mate. Someone else in your gaming circles is waiting
in the wings to take your place in the game, let them have their moment in the spotlight.
Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Friends and relatives may tend to take advantage of
your good nature and your pocket book this week if you don't wise up quickly to what
is going on. There will be some who genuinely need and deserve help and you are
astute enough to see which ones they are and act accordingly. A weekend trip that
is planned may not come to pass due to illness of a family member...don't worry,
you can still go next weekend. If you've been at odds with a gamer of the opposite
sex, it's time to mend those fences. The person in question can be a really great
friend to you and sometimes you could really use a sounding board. Your best game
day this week will be Saturday.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): It may be too early to plan your holidays but not
your shopping list, especially if your gift giving means you will have to mail them
off to friends and relatives. Give everybody a break and do it early this year so
the "Christmas present" doesn't turn into a new years gift. You will have a week
full of surprising developments at work or school which will be very much to your benefit.
When Quaking this week don't be so anxious to jump into the thick of the action all the
time. Creeping through the shadows while picking off opponents will provide you much
entertainment, and you will excel at it too! Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23):Your week may start with a major upset about a
teenager, and you may feel your hands are tied. They are not, as this person looks
on you as their mentor and role model, so this is an ideal time to step into that
position. An on going domestic dispute may have you pulling your hair out by the roots
until you manage to come up with the best way of all to put a stop to it. You may also
be getting nagged about your excessive gaming habits this week. Grenades are the key
to your success in-game this week, as you go on some super pill popping sprees leaving
chaos in your wake. Not only will you top the frag count, but you'll be having a blast!
Your best games this week will be played on very bright outdoor maps, with plenty of
lush greenery and perhaps the odd body of water. Your best game day this week will be
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): A week of playing catchup as you let too many
things slide last week when you took care of some other matters that were unavoidable.
Nose to the grindstone will go far to convince the powers that be that your job or school work is
still very important to you. An intended move is best handled on the weekend when you
will be able to find many willing hands to help you out. Be sure you order out for the
pizza as a treat for the "movers". Playing catchup, moving and getting settled in will
play havoc with your nerves but be sure you keep your cool when letting off that steam in
a game of Quake, or you may find yourself booted from the server! Your best games this week
will be played on space themed maps, regardless of whether you actually like the theme,
this is where you will thrive! Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Your week's vacation may catch you in just
the right mood as you will be taking a special trip this week and you use the time
to renew old acquaintances and look up all the family that got scattered over the
years. A minor problem, perhaps a spat with a loved one, may threaten to cut your
trip short but you find an ingenious way to solve it and all goes as planned. The
return trip on Friday may see you having a little car trouble that you quickly have
fixed. Bodies of liquid will be your best defense in-game this week. Where normally you
may despise that pool of lava, slime or water, this week you will be able to work magic
around them. So play on maps with plenty of liquid! Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
