2004 Astrological Guide
Life, love and gaming in the year 2004!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Life: Big changes in your family affairs will affect you this year. When problems arise you will be the peacemaker, able to calm the waters when people are at each other's throats. There will be a parting of the ways, someone you care about will move away leaving you feeling a bit blue. This is a good move for them, so try to be supportive. 2004 is the time for you to let go of emotional baggage that you've been carrying around for many years now. It's also time to take control of your finances. Better record keeping will be a huge help in that department. Be sure to invest in yourself, bettering your self image will boost your confidence dramatically.
Love: If you're starting out with someone new or have the love of your life already in your heart, then this year will reward devotion and loyalty with more happiness than you can imagine. Be careful not to get involved in something that will leave you starved for affection. If you are already in a relationship, then you may find yourself having to work to save it.
Gaming: This is your year to duel. Strategy and static positions will not fly your flag, so stay away from the team games and get down with your bad FFA fragging self! Once Spring hits you will likely find yourself needing a break from gaming. You may even start to wonder if you've "grown" out of your FPS addiction... the answer to that question is "no". After the summer an exciting new game or mod will drag you back to the battlefield!
Work On: Strafing and dodging.
Where You'll Rock: Lone warrior, roamer, soldier, sniper, flag / objective carrier.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Life: This year you will find yourself creating a new image as far as appearance and fashion goes. Your new look will also help bring our your true persona. You may find yourself getting involved with volunteer work, you will find it very rewarding and it will bring you peace of mind. Listen to your gut in 2004, you will have awesome intuition. Loot will be phat this year if you keep your eyes open for good investment opportunities.
Love: In 2004 it's romance over nookie when it comes to fulfilling your fantasies. Be warned, this year you see someone as you want them to be rather than how they really are. Once they reveal their true colours they will fall off the pedestal you put them on and you may be left confused and disillusioned. Rather than suffer, be realistic from the word go and you can keep your surprises to a minimum. However, an unlikely companion will lead to a year of total joy.
Gaming: This is the year of gaming for you, you will become involved at many different levels. Whether it's starting a clan, writing for a fan site or running a league, you will not be happy to just sit back and play. 2004 will see you playing better than ever before, and the compliments will be coming in hard and fast. Although this is truly your year to shine, be sure to keep your ego in check.

Look to the past this year as a situation you thought was finished comes to the surface again, this time when you lay ghosts to rest make sure you do. Do not give in to someone's financial demands, and be careful about lending as you will likely not see a return. Put money aside for something big on the horizon, be it a baby's birth, wedding or some other special occasion which is sure to drain the old pocketbook!
