Shooting it Straight – Fire Signs/May 20-24

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.


Frustrating decisions are in focus and either of you may be changing the rules of the game to suit your purpose. Could it be that your perception is tainted with bias and baggage from the past? Do you still trust your own intuition? Something’s going on behind the scenes and a light needs to shine on secrets or information that has previously been withheld. Are is there a valid reason for holding back? You may be dealing with concerns that connect to the future, health, happiness and success. Even available opportunities seem challenging at this point. One of you may be aggressively pushing your own agenda and meeting with resistance as a result. In fact, you or your partner may be re-evaluating whether to remain involved with each other or a situation because of a goal, promise or belief once held. The only way to move this situation forward is with tact. Careful of bullying your partner or you may find the connection burning out. Hey, when you play with fire, you might just get burned.

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

If your laundry’s out, make sure it’s clean.


Two can play this game–but who does it better? There may be smug attitudes and cavalier behavior, but somebody decides to cut the crap. Either of you may be questioning the level of satisfaction in this relationship. Excess, extravagance, and emotional withholding are themes worthy of high drama soap operas but not real life. Not the life you want. You’ve experienced disappointment, betrayal, hardship and have had to go it alone too many times in the past. One of you has decided that this time it’ll be different. You’re making decisions that suit yourself and turning your back on players, haters and partners who don’t deliver. With this kind of thinking, you could turn travesty into triumph!

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

You don’t know what the hell you’re talking about! And so…that’s the back of my head–get used to it.


This week feels like running in circles making little to no headway. You may need more space and yet the demands never seem to stop. Partnership and decisions feel like losing propositions right out of the gate. Either you or your partner may be hell bent on doing your own thing in your own way. You’re not hearing it and not having it, especially if your boundaries were pushed. But it wouldn’t hurt to examine whether the problem was actually that you’d taken something for granted for too long and then got a reality check as a result. Perhaps you or your partner have been operating in people-please mode and a situation provided the mechanism to become more self-reliant. But are you committed or not? The right conversation could heal some hurt feelings.

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

If you need a punching bag, go to the gym.
