Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): You will have demands put on you at home, some of which
may be directly related to gaming (ie. complaints that you spend too much time playing or non-related
issues that will force you to cut down your play time). Try to be patient and do what's
necessary as quickly as possible. There is no point arguing with others, both at home and
in-game because you will more than likely be on the losing end of the stick. Concentrate on
the end result and getting your business sorted out. Your best weapon this week will be one
that you can quickly pick people off with (sniper rifle or railgun). Your best game day this week will be
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Your unrealistic view of your financial situation
will lead to overextending yourself. There are a few games coming out for Christmas that you'd
love to sink your teeth into right now, but hold off and put them on your Wish List instead
of purchasing them yourself right away. Don't get involved in dubious joint ventures that
have little chance of being successful. Your best position this week will that of a roamer,
spend your time fragging mid-map, keep your team's resources away from the enemy and shake
things up for them! Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Relatives may want to take part in your family
discussions. Be polite but tell them to mind their own business. You need to work
things out behind closed doors with the ones you love and respect. Lately you may just be
going through the motions in-game, download a new mod to get your mind off your troubles
and breathe some new life into gaming! Your best games this week will be played out on darker
eery looking maps, perhaps with a Gothic type theme. The Lightning Gun is your best bet!

Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Your expectations will be greater than the actual
outcome. Try not to show your disappointment or you may unintentionally hurt someone's
feelings. You may have to reevaluate your personal partnership. Challenge yourself this
week to be the best player that you can be. Practicing against bots will help improve
your game. Take a look at playing from a strategic angle, try to predict your opponent's
moves. You're at the top of your game this week. If you play for a clan be sure to warm up
prior to any matches, you may think you play better cold but you will not in this case!

the time to find out what and who you really like. Update your web page this week,

it! Your best weapon this week will be the Lightning Gun, use it and abuse it! Try weapon
combos for increased performance. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Be careful who you befriend and who you tell your
secrets to. You need to be discreet about your private affairs. However, you must also
be fair with your emotional partners. This is a week where you are vulnerable to
emotional swings, more so than is normal. Blowing off some steam in Quake may help
alleviate some of the tension, but be careful not to be a total jackass or you could
find yourself alienating a friend or would-be friend. Your best game day this week will

game config is up to date and see about shaving off a few FPS to avoid system lag. Your
best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Your best efforts will unfold through real estate
opportunities. Residential moves will be to your advantage. Family members may not
agree with your plans. Be cautious when dealing with colleagues. Don't let situations
get out of control. If you're in a clan then you'll likely have some trouble setting
up your next match, try to keep your cool and reflect your team with dignity and class.

Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23):You will have an abundance of energy. Immerse yourself
in a work-related project where you will receive the biggest payback. If you're involved
in game community projects such as mapping, modding, skinning, etc. then this would be a
good time to pay particular attention to making sure your current project is top notch. It

superiors/co-workers and gaming pals. Your best games will be played on dark outdoor maps
this week. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Your energy will surprise others this week. Go after
your goals wholeheartedly and don't be afraid to include coworkers or school mates in your
efforts. Your achievements will be great if you focus carefully. This goes for Quake as well,
focus on changing your strategies, straying from the norm a bit to find a strategy that suits
you. Spend some time spectating to see how others move, learn to break their patterns thus
taking the upperhand. You'll be a great rocket jockey this week, spend some time with the
Rocket Launcher for an increased frag count. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Don't spend too much on your mate or on luxury
items that you really don't need. If you're planning to upgrade your system then you may want
to hold off until you know you can truly afford the changes and additions. Travel will be
rewarding, if you're thinking of attending a LAN party then go for it, you'll be glad you
didn't miss out. If you've had some gaming pals bugging you to hook up and play with them,
honor the request, you'll have a blast. Your best game day this week will be Monday.
