Don't forget to find out the basics of your sign in the Quake Astrology Guide!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Concentrate on your job or school work. Your emotional life may be up in the
air if your mate has been going through a change of heart. Be understanding, but don't neglect your own needs. Someone
you live with will be disgruntled if you haven't been too concerned about your household duties. Try to get along;
do your work early and then get out of the way. Your best game day this week will be Friday. Your weapons of mass
destruction will be the Grenade Launcher and the Lightning Gun, especially when you find ways to use them in
combination! If you're in a clan prepare for the Christmas slowdown which has already
started within your group, you'll find yourself short of players or with players whom are lacking enthusiasm. After
Christmas you may see your clan looking for new members to replace those whom have gotten caught up with other games
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Expect your partner to be upset and emotional if you have been wrapped up
in your own concerns or hobbies. Make plans to spend some quality time together. You will spend more than necessary
if you take trips. Don't pay for friends or peers. Be careful what you say, and to whom, if you don't want to be thought
of as a gossip. Someone within your gaming circles will sell you out, either in chat or on the gaming forums you
frequent. Don't give them a chance to give out your name as their source to the gossip. Your best game day this week
will be Monday. If you've been considering attending a LAN party, go for it! You could use a weekend away with
friends. Your best weapon this week will be the Rocket Launcher.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): You will face financial limitations if you haven't been putting money aside
for an unforeseen expense. You must do some extra work if you want to get out of debt. Concentrate on making money
and this will turn into a productive week. You can impress others with your creative flair and your ability to get
the job done quickly. Your best game day this week will be Friday. Be careful with any computer upgrades over the
next while, not just because money may be a problem, but because you could run into problems while installing new
hardware that will lead to greater expenses. Your best games will be played on large fortress-like CTF maps, with two
identical bases. If you don't normally play CTF then this may be a good time for you get back into it, or a CTF
style mod. Your best weapon will be the Grenade Launcher.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Investments or risky financial ventures should be avoided at all costs. This
is not the time to start new endeavors or make drastic changes. For best results, relax and pamper yourself. You
will get along surprisingly well with employers and colleagues. Your discipline and determination will help you
complete difficult projects on time. Your best game day this week will be Friday. Your weapon of choice will be
the Plasma Gun. Your best games this week will be played out on maps with a lot of metal framework/walkways and
moving or rotating platforms, very industrial looking. You may run into some ultra-trash-talkers on public servers
this week, don't join them or you may find yourself on that server's ban list!
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20): A reappearance of a past acquaintance will leave a bad taste in your mouth. Don't
be afraid to ask for the money that was owed to you when that person conveniently disappeared. Physical changes will
enhance your looks. Your competitive nature will give you the winning edge in sports or gaming events. Extravagance will be
your downfall. Your best game day this week will be Wednesday. Your best games will be played on small
maps (up to 6 players), with lots of narrow hallways and corners to frag around. If you're in a clan then you'll find
yourself fragging in great form for matches this week, but your warmups and pubbing may be a little shabby.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 21): Empty promises will be disheartening. Try to get offers in writing before you
celebrate. You can lose money or possessions if you aren't careful where you leave your valuables. Your emotions
will be mounting. You will meet potential new mates through friends. Someone in your home environment may be
unpredictable. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. If you've been considering joining a clan, you may
want to wait until after the holidays when the team you're considering will be most receptive to new members.
Maps with lots of fluids such as water, lava or slime will be your downfall this week, tread lightly around
such obstacles or find yourself with a negative frag count!
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): Your career will take a positive turn. The courses you were taking will payoff.
Don't let friends or family put unreasonable demands on you or your time. You need to focus on your goals.
Alterations made to your home will turn out better than you expected. Invite friends over to help do the finishing
touches. You can impress everyone with your creative and innovative ideas. Your best game day this week will be
Sunday. Your best games will be played on floating maps, where your opponents can fall (or be pushed *cough*) into
oblivion. You'll be at the top of your game this week if you watch your gaming posture, loosen up and enjoy the
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22): Be careful, someone you live with may not understand the way you feel about them.
Be prepared to make changes that will help you feel more comfortable. A move may be required. Don't let your mate
push you into doing things that you'd rather not do. You may want to start looking for a new love who has the same
criteria as you do. You need to make changes in your game configurations to compensate for new hardware or a new
play style you've been flirting with recently. Your best game day this week will be Monday. Expect to take lots of
tumbles in the fog of death, but never fear, your gaming abilities will be much improved next week. Your
best weapons will be the Grenade Launcher and Railgun.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Alterations in your living arrangements are inevitable. Close friends may shed
some light on your situation. Work diligently on sticking to your budget. Relatives or close friends will meddle
in your private affairs if you confide in them. If you have frustrations, work them out by getting involved in
competitive games. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. This will be a great week for sniping, either
in a mod with a sniper class or just with the Railgun. If you really want to be top notch then get in some bot
practice and you'll soon find yourself picking people off with a much improved accuracy. Your best games will be
played on outdoor maps with lots of trees or bushes, and plenty of hills to dodge around.
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): You will be unstable about your financial situation. Don't be too worried, just
stop spending unnecessarily. You need to be careful when it comes to joint finances. Romantic connections can be
made through intellectual pursuits. Take time to get to know one another as friends before you move into a physical
liaison. Your best game day this week will be Saturday. If you're a drinker then be sure to avoid the suds if you've
got a clan match coming up, your game play that night will be your team's downfall! If you work on community oriented
projects such as maps, models or a mod, then be sure to release some goodies in time for Christmas, the community
will appreciate your gift to them. Your best weapon this week will be the Shotgun, you'll find yourself virtually
unable to miss a shot!
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Your mate may not be too content. Don't push yourself on them. Try giving them a
little space. They are likely having problems with the way you are running things at home. Your unique and original
ideas may be blocked. Influential individuals may feel that you're ahead of your time. Don't get into debates that
will damage your reputation. Your best game day this week will be Monday. Have some fun this week with your online
pals, your sense of humour is just what you all need. Keep things light and friendly, avoid losing your temper and
starting heated debates. If someone is rubbing you the wrong way then release some stress with a few rounds of
your favourite game! You're all about grenades this week, use 'em and abuse 'em!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Travel should be on your mind. Even short trips to visit friends or
relatives will prove to be interesting and informative. You need to interact with others. Your sensual way of
expressing yourself will elicit romantic opportunities for you if you attend functions. Don't let children stand
in the way of your happiness. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. If you've been slacking off in your clan
for quite some time then now may be a good time to sit back and decide what you want. Perhaps you'd be a better fit
in another group or just on your own as a single player. Your best games will be played on dimly lit maps with lots of
rich greens, blues and reds, you'll thrive in this environment. Whereas maps with lots of browns and little use of
other colour will take you out of the "zone". Your weapon of choice this week is the Rocket Launcher.
