Shooting it Straight – Fire Signs/June 17-21

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.


Something’s getting old–is it the way you’re talking to each other? Old habits die hard. As much as either of you would like to have a sense of stability, unexpected situations keep cropping up where one of you changes the rules to the game. There’s a history of ill-considered decisions or being too pushy and trying to force the issue. The tension starts when one of you wants to make decisions that fly in the face of tradition. On the other hand, one of you could be pressured into making a decision for the wrong reasons and just going along to get along. If you’re rushing, make sure you’re really headed somewhere fast. A move in the wrong direction means that something you thought was rock solid is now up in the air. Matters have come to a head where you have to deal with a costly situation that hits where it hurts.

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

You can draw a line in the sand, but we’re still on the same beach.


Are you livin’ the dream or dreaming of a life? Is one of you lying down on the job? “Well, this ain’t sleepin’ beauty, baby–I’ll go elsewhere, if need be.” You can either wish upon a star or be one. So, which one of you is just a little too relaxed about dealing with a situation and thinking that it will fix or revive itself? It’s time to take responsibility and figure out the next move, especially if there’s been some dishonesty. If they believe they can fly through this situation by playing Peter Pan–uh, look at Mr. Kelly. Somebody needs to grow up. Leave the hopeless romantic for the fairy-tales and come up with a plan if you’re not getting what you want. If it’s you who’s flat out at fault, you can expect to trip over that lump you swept under the rug. Just because you can’t see the dirt, doesn’t mean it’s not there.

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

Half-way is just another word for half-ass.


Things are getting heavy and somebody’s not sure if they want to be obligated. Is someone being unreliable and leaving the work for you while they make other plans? Are you a workaholic constantly breaking promises and perhaps staying a bit too late in the office as an excuse to avoid working on the relationship (this one, anyway). One of you is starting to wonder what the plan is behind all of this work–a few coins, a luxury you can’t really afford, or is it the sweet young thing in the office down the hall that just got hired? If you feel the partner is unpredictable because they’re either blowin’ in the wind or blowing smoke up your a$%, you might just unload. If you always end up with the short end of the stick or carrying the whole damn load, stop placing too much weight on the wrong things. Push back and break out of the rut that keeps you from getting the appreciation you deserve. Focus on opportunities that will actually pay off. You’re worth it!

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

Teamwork makes the dream work. We’re talkin’ home team, here.
