Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Don't make promises that are unreasonable. A poor
reputation will result if you get yourself into a position that makes you look irresponsible.
You should pay attention to the physical limitations you've been experiencing. You will be
fatigued easily if you aren't strict about your dietary and sleep habits. You may be fooling
yourself about your abilities in-game. In the mods you play you may fancy yourself a sniper,
although you're not a bad sniper, there is a much better class for you out there. Don't
pigeon-hole yourself into one position, experiment a bit. Your best game day this week will
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Don't confront situations that deal with your
personal life right now, take some time to think things through clearly. Spend as much time
out of the house as possible. You need to feel good about yourself right now. Take time out
to do just that. A day of physical activity may turn things around for you. In Quake, let
your inhibitions go and feel free to experiment a bit. You're stuck in a rut, the same old
strategies and map routes. Time to stray from the norm, you'll be happy you did since it
will improve your game quite a bit. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You can make career changes if you are willing to
put in some learning time. Extravagance might be a problem, you need to chill out on
computer / office upgrades. Only get what you absolutely need right now, since it won't
be long until you want to upgrade again -- wait and get a better price in a few months.
Money-making ventures may not be fruitful. When it comes to Quake, spend a day trying new
things, maps, models, mods, it'll suddenly feel like a whole new game and you'll have a
renewed burst of energy and enthusiasm. Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): If you're in a relationship, don't get jealous if your
partner wants to spend some time with friends. Give them space and you will get all the
attention you want later. Use your time apart to play some Quake and re-acquaint yourself
with some long lost gaming pals. If you're single, gaming will help you get your mind off
that special someone at work or school that you've been eyeing. You're a rocket jockey
by nature, but it's time to spread your wings. Try picking up other weapons this week, don't
touch the rocket launcher and a whole new world of possibilities will open to you! Your best
game day this week will be Saturday.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): You can expect to have unexpected and unwanted visitors.
Find a graceful way to turn down any invitations for things you're not interested in doing.
You can get caught up if you're willing to put in some extra hours today. You can expect
family members to be a little perturbed if you don't do your share. Changes of residence
are hectic but beneficial. Your best weapon this week will be the Grenade Launcher. Your
best games will be played on bright, colourful maps where you will suddenly feel alive again.
If you normally keep your brightness turned down, then try turning it up to see things in a
whole new light. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Travel opportunities should be explored, if you've been
considering attending a LAN party or just visiting with a gaming pal, then go for it! Your
need to learn is evident. You should sign up for any interesting courses being offered or
read tutorials to learn new things from home. Look into exploiting a creative hobby,
possibly pertaining to gaming (modeling, skinning, mapping, etc.). You can bet that
someone you live with will be stubborn about the changes going on at home. You have to do
what you feel is best and not worry so much about others. Your best game day this week
will be Friday.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Go out with friends or spend some extra time in chat
or on your favourite gaming forums. You will enjoy the mental debate that you share with
those close to you. New love interests may be met through the company you keep. You should
be taking time off to do things with family or friends. Short trips, sports events, creative
endeavors, or just spending a bit of time outdoors. Look for tips on how to better your Quake
configurations, you'll be able to increase the game's performance, thus increasing your OWN
performance! Your best game day this week will be Monday.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Family gatherings could lead to a connection to a new
romantic relationship. You may have a problem with those you live with if you are not
willing to compromise. Children or younger pals could probably cause upset this week. Don't
take criticism to heart. Your partner could cause some grief. You are best to focus on your
own interests. Communication in-game is key for you this week, if you're normally not a
very good team player then tinker with your communication binds, learn them once and for
all and immerse yourself into a team playing role. You'll love feeling like part of a team
instead of an outsider, and your team play skills will eventually become top notch! Your
best game day this week will be Monday.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Your mate may overreact to just about everything. Try to
be extremely affectionate if you wish to keep the peace and avoid severe disagreements in
your relationship. Friends will be able to enlighten you regarding your present situation.
Don't hesitate to let your thoughts be known, and to seek advice. You will meet someone who
interests you if you get involved in intellectual pursuits, possibly even game forum debates.
You'll be feeling very social this week, take advantage of the situation, spend a lot of time
chatting in IRC, ICQ, on forums, etc., and you will make some new acquaintances that will become
good friends over time. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23):Take a day trip to visit friends or relatives you don't
get to see that often. Family members may drive you crazy this week. Time away from home and
from your partner may be a good idea. You will tend to be extravagant in the days to come.
Try to curb your habits. If you're upgrading your computer then take the less expensive
route. You don't have to spend all your money in one place. Take time to examine ways to
help family members or clanmates who are facing difficulties. You may be their only hope.
Gaming pals will come to you this week for advice, they will listen to what you have to say
and thank you for your wisdom. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Residential moves will be beneficial; however, you are
likely to have major trouble convincing those you live with that you are making the right
choice for everyone. Your ability to help the underdog and your diplomacy while working
with others will bring you allies and support in getting ahead. If you're not part of a clan
but have been considering joining one, now is a good time to make that move. You'll play
great as part of a team and will enjoy the organized competition! At the very least, join
some sort of gaming group that meets regularly to play together. Your best game day this
week will be Wednesday.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Don't let the ones you love rule your every move.
You need some time to yourself. Perhaps spending a few days travelling about on your own
would be a good idea. Don't let your money slip through your fingers because you're having
trouble saying no. Tighten your belt and look for things to do that don't cost so much. Your
best weapon this week will be the Plasma Gun. Your best games will be played out on maps that
have plenty of liquids (water, lava, slime), where normally you may not play well in water, you
will be a huge step above the rest this week in that aspect, so use it to your advantage! Your
best game day this week will be Thursday.
