Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs/June 24-28

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.


Third parties usually don’t win elections. The same holds true for love as well. Is someone back by popular demand? Is there outside interference or external forces interrupting your connection? Troubling situations (infidelity, jealousy, health problems, disagreements) may force an important crossroad decision about where this relationship is headed. One of you has been in people-please mode for far too long and unexpressed resentment is simmering beneath the surface. There’s a definite disconnect between the love you envisioned and the reality that is currently smacking you in the face. It’s time to get clear about a few matters if you plan to repair this relationship. A good start would be for either of you to pull off the mask and stop kowtowing to the other’s every demand. If you expect to get any real clarity though, you’ll have to examine the conflict within yourself that drives you to participate in unhealthy situations.

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

Open your mouth–and not just to smile.


Eeny, meeny, miny, moe–it was all right here, where did it go? Hey, maybe life is just a dream. On the other hand, you or your partner could be partying a little too hard (whatever that means) in which case life has become a hallucinatory experience. What’s the drug of choice–luxury items, social engagement, infidelity, gossip, alcohol, controlled substances, sleep, escapism? Your situation is making for muddled thinking and the inability to discern between good options against more questionable ones. It’s also possible you’re overwhelmed and confused about the messages you’ve received lately. Perhaps the love you really want is out of your grasp or you simply can’t commit to one person. To form any kind of mutual agreements, you’ll need to step away from mere fantasy.

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

Now you see me; now you don’t.


You either have to stop being negative energy, focusing on it, or turn away from it to focus on the things you care most about. You’ve been going in circles for some time now over the same issues where there’s been an element of deceit, selfish manipulation, or attempts at revenge. But if you’re fighting fire with fire, doesn’t that just mean everything is going to burn? At the core of a situation could be debt, expenses, climbing up the ladder of success (or over others), and excessive criticism. A repetitive cycle of hostility provoked by betrayal or extreme self-interest keeps the both of you locked in a never-ending battle that eventually ends with wounded pride or some form of retribution. Let the petty go so you can concentrate on addressing the meaningful. Just going through the motions is moot–if your heart’s not in it, you probably won’t win it. There are no shortcuts now–someone’s tired of getting shortchanged. When one of you crosses boundaries or keeps going with the same ol’ same ol,’ the other one will decide to walk away from the madness.

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