Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): You need to get in touch with yourself. Look into
doing things that have always interested you. Let your creative juices flow. Children will
make a difference to your outlook. You can achieve anything that you set your mind to. Now
would be a great time to learn how to program a mod, make maps or design your own website.
If you get really tense while you play Quake, you may want to concentrate on loosening up a
bit, it will help improve your game a bit. Ping problems will occur for a portion of the
coming week, you may have to learn to play like an HPB again for a while. Your best games
will be played on maps with a lot of bright coloured textures, you should see a noticeable
performance difference over maps with a lot of plain greys and browns. Your best game day
this week will be Monday.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Friends and relatives will introduce you to new and
unusual activities. You will be captivated by someone you meet who has a completely
different background. You may be a bit frantic this week, stay calm and work on your own
projects. Both in-game and out, if you appear to be a know-it-all you'll meet with
opposition. If you get too cocky you will find yourself being shunned by your gaming pals,
on servers and on the message boards you frequent. Your best game day this week will be
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): A friend, schoolmate or coworker may be jealous. Don't
tell anyone secrets that you don't want revealed. Underhandedness is evident and you must
be aware that someone is looking for an opportunity to make you look bad. You'll be rather
clumsy in-game this week, falling off edges and shooting yourself in the foot so to speak. Don't
try to be prom king on the servers this week, concentrate on having fun and your mistakes
won't bother you so much. If you play for a clan you may want to sit on the bench this week
and give someone else the chance to play! Your best game day this week will be Tuesday.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Difficulties with business or personal relationships
are likely. You will be involved in deceptive circumstances and may find that situations
are not as they appear. Difficulties with gaming pals will also be unnerving. Don't expect
your friends to understand your situation. Be careful when using machinery or electrical
equipment, don't fiddle around inside your computer case too much this week, you could
inadvertently break something. Your best games will be played on city maps this week,
with plenty of buildings to duck around in. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): Love and romance are just waiting to unfold. You'll
meet new mates through friends or while attending talks that relate to a creative hobby
you are interested in. Love is growing; infatuations are confusing you. You have a
choice to make regarding who you want to get intimate with. Be careful not to hurt
anyone's feelings. If you play all three Quake games (1, 2, & 3), you will find the most
enjoyment checking out single player missions for Quake 2 this week. Now would be a good
time to practice your Railgun, both in Q2 and Q3A, you are most receptive to learning
right now. Your best game day this week will be Sunday.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Presentation of your ideas for work efficiency will be
well received. You will find that coworkers will help you fight for better working
conditions. Emotional upset will be hard to avoid if you haven't spent enough time with
your mate. Your intuitive awareness should help you clue in to what you must do to
rectify the problem. The key to your in-game enjoyment will be true team work. If you don't
currently play a mod which requires a concentrated effort in team work then it's time to
download one! Tarzan you ain't, if you play a grapple mod then be sure to get a little
swing practice in this week! Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Don't bother trying to hide something from your mate.
You are best to be honest and clear the air. Romantic opportunities will heighten your day.
Travel, lectures, and social gatherings will enhance your popularity. New friendships look
promising and lasting. Spread your wit and humour around a lot this week, you'll be a great
pick-me-up for many people on your favourite gaming stomping grounds. You won't be at the
top of your game this week, in fact you'll be playing a lot lower than your actual skill
level, so play the class clown instead and get back to the serious business of gaming
next week. Your best game day this week will be Friday.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Romantic encounters with colleagues can develop. Be
aware of the underhandedness of jealous peers. Concentrate on moneymaking deals and
securing your position. You will be emotional about changes that are going on around
you. Acceptance will be the key to letting go. You need to move into a new level of
life. Changes are necessary. That goes for your game as well, if you've been upset about stinking
up the servers lately then it's time for a skill tune-up and change of strategy. Practice
your strafing and general dodging techniques this week to move yourself up a notch.
Your best game day this week will be Thursday.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Get out and do things that you enjoy. All work and
no play isn't good for your emotional well-being. Take the time to get to know new
acquaintances better. Spend time chatting in gaming forums or on IRC/ICQ and make some new
contacts. You should look into moving if a position of interest comes up
in a different geographical location. Not everyone you live with will be thrilled, but
the prospects look good. Your best weapon this week will be the Shotgun. Your best games
will be played on very tall maps with plenty of high ledges to pick people off from.
Your best game day this week will be Wednesday.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): You can make positive improvements to your home if
you get the family's help and make everyone feel that they've contributed. Don't get
dragged into office politics. A female member of your family will cause problems.
Ignore this inexcusable behavior and carry on with your own plans. You have to stop
trying to please everyone else. In-game, practice getting into hard to reach places
and you will gain an edge over your opponents. You will play your best games this week
on space theme maps and your best game day will be Sunday.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): You need to be careful what you consume. Poor dietary
habits will result in minor health problems. Get back to basics and stop those
overindulgent habits you've picked up. You'll be in an awkward position if you're in
the middle of a dispute. Meddling will not prove beneficial, if you're in a clan then
this will be especially true. You are likely to lose the friend you thought you were
helping so be careful what you say. Someone may accuse of you cheating in Quake this week,
be the bigger person and just shrug it off. Your best game day this week will be Saturday.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Don't get into conflicts with those who are in a
position to ruin your reputation. Listen and be diplomatic in your approach to solving
existing problems. Social events will lead to new romantic connections. Don't jump too
quickly; take your time. Your best games this week will be played on baron outdoor maps,
desert-like or with lots of sand and bright lighting. Your best game day this week will be
Thursday, but be careful not to get too cocky about your winning streak or those who had
gained respect from the experience will quickly lose it!
