Shooting it Straight – Fire 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.


Where’s the motivation beyond wanting to push your partner off of a cliff? Something’s changed in a way that’s created a chasm between you. One of you needs to take a leap of faith and commit to closing the gap. Like now. Either the relationship or a situation has grown stale and probably needs an infusion of fresh energy to change course and move in a new direction. Current circumstances could have you feeling tied down and looking for the next exit sign. In fact, you probably wish that you were anywhere BUT where you presently are–physically or mentally. Just be sure that risky moves don’t cause you to lose your footing. It’s possible that one of you is attempting to gain by exploiting the partner’s naivete or coaxing them into running a fool’s errand. Instability due to upsetting news, inconsistencies in behavior, or issues of infidelity chip away at the bond between you. But trying to instruct or admonish your partner with that condescending tone isn’t helpful and neither is that supposedly well-intentioned pep-talk. Of course, one of you could very well be acting like a spoiled child, spouting forth foolishness, and throwing temper tantrums when the program doesn’t go your way. Is this a situation past its prime because one of you is behaving like a prima donna?

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

If you think you’re the sh#$t, you might wanna clean up your act.


“Anything you can do, I can do better.” (If your mate is named Annie, run for cover.) Can you handle the truth? One of you wouldn’t have to be so defensive if you’d just listen to a few words of good advice once in a while, rather than trying to rally “a few good men” to do battle. Perhaps some doubt is causing either of you to feel vulnerable, especially if a partner seems to be lording their authority. One of you is currently riding high on the horse while the other is going off the rails and ranting on a soapbox. You recognize a disadvantage and it’s causing you to overcompensate by resisting any assistance at all. In fact, one of you is in full-on defense mode and ready to strike–even if that means out on your own. But one can be the loneliest number–real teams share both the ball and the win. Resolve the situation or cut your losses.

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

Thanks for the ride.


If this is your idea of hanging ten, you’ve got it all wrong. It’s time for the sunny side up–you need to shine a light and get clear about what it takes to survive a situation that may not be as serious as you think. Lighten up–stop focusing on past betrayals that keep you stuck to victim-hood. Acting out your frustrations won’t help you move past a circumstance that’s making you feel stuck, but taking care of business will. The bad news is that your self-doubt is a product of expecting good things from bad situations. If you’re in a dead romance or at a dead-end in the search for it, something has to end so that you can recognize your own light. The good news is that there’s a bright spot at the end of that dark tunnel and your place in the sun is right around the corner. In the interim, try not to push a personal agenda so hard that you burn yourself out before daylight. The sun knows exactly when to rise.

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

Put a pin in it.
