Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs/June 3-7

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.


There’s anger about shady behavior and the failure to carry through on a promise. Maybe an assurance was prompted by a rash decision to begin with and likely driven by or accepted because of emotional insecurities. On the other hand, it might have been part of a cold and calculated plot because one of you simply didn’t give a damn about how the other person felt. Either way, a situation is on shaky ground causing you to wonder about the future and prompting you to seek answers. In fact, you could be sorting through rumors, conspiracy theories, or secret revelations that tie to some form of betrayal. The bigger truth to uncover is why you’ve formed this alliance in the first place. Is is style over substance? Perhaps there’s been too much obsession about fringe benefits–financially or sexually. Now you’re having to get real about whether this is a real opportunity, especially if excess of any kind is taking its toll on your connection. You may be striking out or on the defensive about anything offered at this point. Is it solid or is someone selling out? Big plans offer more security if you take it one step at a time right now. Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.

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

Listening is an art. Not everyone’s an artist.


Can I leave you with a little something? I call it enlightenment. Perhaps it dawns on you why somebody left or maybe you’re still looking for answers. While you were focused on this, that, and the other over there–somebody’s moved on. Or maybe, you left you. You’re disappointed with how things have turned out and you don’t even know what you want anymore. And so… you’re…in search of. Start doing some listening because situations are playing out to give you better awareness. I know, Virgo, it’s so hard to admit that on occasion, you just might be—wrong (gasp). Got milk with that humble pie? Perhaps you pushed something a little too far through a controversy which ended in an ultimate showdown between winner and loser. Which end did you come out on? Is that criticism really constructive? If you’re on the receiving end, you may be looking at whether word and deed are in alignment. What you “hear” and what the truth is could be two different things.

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

They deserve a medal for dealing with your a#$–the medal of freedom.


There’s history to deal with and if you’re not careful, it’ll repeat itself. It all depends on the level of satisfaction of the parties involved. Issues are cropping up that demand focus–medical, emotional, financial–and taking on greater responsibility both for self and loved ones. The real concern for the future means it’s time to talk futures–stocks, taxes, savings, inheritance. You and your partner may have to restructure the budget because of waste, legal issues or financial risks that turned out to be less than profitable. The ties that bind may experience stress under the tension of disapproval, fights over money, or breaking with tradition, especially if part of the problem has been extreme self-indulgence or arrogance. If ego takes over, one of you may get exactly what’s needed–just desserts. If this situation involves infidelity, the player could get played. You might be visiting old haunts or haunted by old issues. Whatever you’re dealing with, the past and the future are currently intertwined. With all these heavy demands you may decide to close shop for a while. Don’t forget your old friends–while you may close a few chapters, some of your history’s worth preserving.

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

Take it at face value. They value your face–they’d like to see it once in a while.
