on your favourite public servers. You will be able to communicate well this weeks. Discuss your objectives with
partners or peers. You can make major accomplishments while on short trips. If you're planning to attend an upcoming

Quake. Your best maps will be filled with dangers such as spikes, lava, and slime, which you'll manage to
avoid while your opponents take the death plunge.
Aries (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): You will have a greater involvement in groups; however, they may not be to
your advantage. If you're thinking about joining a clan then be careful that you aren't saddled with the
responsibilities of others. You may find it necessary to confront a situation that has gotten out of hand. Talk to
the party involved and make sure that they are informed as to what actually happened. Your best game day this week will
be Monday. Someone is trying to get on your good side this week, you'll easily spot it and in the holiday spirit should

open and up front with your boss. Don't let your mate put demands on you. If you join intellectual groups, you should

increased frag count. Don't accuse others of cheating or start any arguments that could have an impact on your

problems will get worse if your partner hasn't been playing by the rules. You can stabilize your situation if you
compromise. Your talents might just be discovered, if you're playing without a clan tag this week then expect to be
asked to join a clan or two. Don't be shy to promote your own interests. You can learn from those who have had similar
experiences. Your best game day this week will be Saturday. If you've been having trouble with your mouse lately then
hook yourself up with a new one over the holidays, it will go a long way toward improving your game. Your best games
will be played on tall maps where you'll score a lot of fluke grenade hits that will keep you laughing and having
a blast throughout!
Cancer (Jun. 22 - Jul. 22): You must not make unnecessary changes this week. Your emotional attitude with
respect to your status and direction in society may be unrealistic. Business trips might prove unproductive. Your
personal life will be under the gun and you may want to avoid the questions your mate is going to want to ask you.
Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. If you're in a clan then now would be a good time to take the lead
and turn the group in the direction you want to go in. Consider joining a 1 vs 1 ladder or servers where you can
duel others, one on one deathmatch is where you'll shine this week. Take a break from teamplay games and practice
your skills as an individual. Try fragging to music, you'll find yourself totally in the 'zone'.

your personal life. Overindulgent people will cause disruptions in your life. Your best game day this week will be
Thursday. Your best weapon will be the Rocket Launcher. Have some fun with it, practice rocket jumps while taking
minimal damage, challenge yourself to reach areas or ledges which you previously thought were not accessible.
Have some fun and surprise your opponents with your new found skills. Your best games will be played out on maps
with multiple levels with lots of ramps and stairways.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22): Avoid any intimate involvement with coworkers or employers. Empty promises are
evident; therefore, get it in writing, to be safe. It may be a disappointing week emotionally. This will not be the
best time to sign deals or to take care of other people's financial matters. You will be inclined to make unwise
investment choices. Your best game day this week will be Saturday. Clan activities will be few and far between over
the holidays, plan to play a lot of one on one or practice against bots to improve your game for the New Year!
If you begin to feel a little blue then go on a downloading spree to grab some new maps and mods which will add
a world of new life to your gaming! You will be best suited to team oriented games this week, take the lead,
communicate well and watch yourself repeatedly bringing your team to victory!
Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 23): Emotional relationships will be plentiful if you attend group activities. Your
outgoing, aggressive nature will attract someone you've been anxious to meet. You can get support from groups that
you belong to if you're willing to step out on a limb and voice your opinions. Don't be afraid of opposition; your
suggestions are valid. Be sure to play with your ears this week, listen for sounds that will help you surprise your
opponents and take the lead. Your best game day this week will be Tuesday. If your favourite game has felt sluggish
lately then a little computer maintenance may be needed, clean up the clutter on your hard drive or consider getting
a new one. Your skills will be solid this week, loosen up and enjoy yourself, don't be so worried about coming in
first place and you'll see it happen naturally with little effort on your part.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 - Nov. 21): Uncertainty regarding your mate may emerge; reevaluate what you see in each
other. Social gatherings will be conducive to meeting new potential mates. Someone you live with will be quite
unreasonable this week. Spend lots of time with friends and avoid the situation on the home front. You really can't
do anything to change matters at this moment. Your best game day this week will be Thursday. You'll find yourself
spilling grenades for laughs, but will also see yourself with a greatly improved frag count, go with it. Your best
games will be played on maps with a lot of water, and your best mode of play will be Deathmatch Free For All. You
may not be in a team play frame of mind this week, so if it's CTF you usually crave then give DM a chance for a sweet
change of pace.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): You will be popular and will easily attract members of the opposite sex.
Do not lend money to friends, or contribute more than necessary to groups unworthy of your cash. Don't let your
jealousy be the reason for a decaying relationship. Sooner or later your partner will have had enough. If you can't
trust someone, question the connection. Spend a lot of your gaming time in social situations this week, servers where
you can laugh it up with others, and gaming forums or chats where you can playfully debate and spend some time in the
lime light. Your best game day this week will be Friday. If you normally play competitively then this would be a good
time to take a brief break, play for fun and see the game in a whole new light. If you've been putting off trying new
mods, maps or configurations then take some time out to do just that.
