Shooting it Straight – Air Signs/May 20-14

Here’s a heads-up on the challenge or obstacle you’re likely to face in your love relationship this week (problem) and what’s at the root of it (action). The advice is irreverent, a bit cheeky, unfiltered and admittedly brazen. The message is putting either you or your partner on notice. You know who you are! If you’re offended by the truth or strong language–stop here.


You’ve got to pay to play. If you’re looking for a fresh start, you’re going to have to make some change–not with coins but with cash. Perhaps your partner is expecting you to put your money where your mouth is regarding situations in which you’ve been resistant to creating beneficial changes. An unexpected setback, a feeling of stagnation or just plain bad luck could have instigated anxiety or disappointment about unfulfilled expectations. External forces outside of your relationship may have also been the culprit and now there’s a price to pay. This might even carry over to passion in the bedroom where attraction has begun to fizzle. Whatever the case, a change of fortune has triggered the realization for you or your partner that you’re better off alone or better at dealing with a situation than you thought.

And what is it that either of you may need to know but don’t really want to hear?

It’s crunch time–let’s crunch numbers. $$$


Struggling to get off the fence? You’re having the hardest time making that decision. Who can blame you–battered and tattered as you are? You’ve been through a lot because of or with a partner. But guess what? You’re still standing, even if you don’t know for how much longer. You could be at odds with a mate–you don’t know where this relationship is heading. Perhaps you don’t have very good boundaries and keep trying to please a partner at high cost to self. Maybe you’re tired from working so hard to defend yourself and your rights. Could it be that you’re having an inner battle about whether you deserve to be treated better? Are you overly defensive? Don’t get in your own way trying to protect yourself or your cause. In spite of the uncertainty, you’re close to reaching your destination, especially once you figure out the role you played in this situation. When you stop suppressing how you feel and allow yourself to see the truth, you’ll realize how irrational those fears are. You’re a survivor.

And what is it that either of you may need to know but don’t really want to hear?

You can’t be everything. Ask for help.


What are you waiting for? Stop hanging around waiting for the security and reliable relationship you crave to establish itself. Perhaps circumstances need to shift in one of two ways–either through more meaningful or less useless sacrifice. You’re having to examine who or what has been letting you down on the regular, or more importantly, where you keep disappointing yourself by failing to do what needs to be done. One of you may be critical and controlling, and as a result, false accusations or poor decisions may have led to an unfortunate reversal that affected your domestic situation or career. A refusal to change or break from the status quo means that something could be stagnating and in limbo. As long as either of you continue on the path of least resistance, you’re likely to keep making decisions that put you at risk–emotionally and/or financially. Your situation means breaking bad habits and taking a different, and perhaps radical, approach to deal with loose ends that need to be handled.

You’ll never take the winning shot if you keep dropping the ball.
