Shooting it Straight – Water 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.


There’s something that would make you happy; something you’d like to nurture and grow, and yet…you’re not being completely honest about your true desires. You started to feel some things that you probably hadn’t planned on or intended–was it love (or lust), perhaps? Whatever you’re calling it, strong instincts have kicked into high gear. In fact, the intense desire to offer love, protection, and care could be so overwhelming that one of you is trying to escape being smothered by the other. In the extreme, over-indulgence could cause you both to lose yourselves in the pleasure principle–sex, spending, socializing, food, alcohol. On the other end of the spectrum, your relationship has failed to thrive because of apathy and the mistaken idea that what you want will simply arrive without any effort on your part. Good things come to those who wait–but, not for too long. The relationship might be suffering due to unmet demands or failure to act on opportunities. The answer is not to get crabby and withdraw into your shell. Besides, Cancer, you’re too much of a romantic to just give up–offer some heartfelt words that open the lines of communication. With more effort and more honesty, you might just attract the object of your desire. If either of you have been misleading about intentions or tying strings to generosity, the other one will eventually get bored and move on. If the plan all along was to leave your options open to play the field, don’t be surprised if you end up with weeds (and not the ones currently in demand).

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

Pretty little lies.


“What would you think, if I sang out of tune, would you stand up and walk out on me?… Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends, mmm, I get high with a little help from my friends, mmm, gonna try with a little help from my friends…” Do you feel like you only get support when you sing in a key your loved one wants to hear? Perhaps you haven’t fully mastered the art of give and take in relationships. You want to be close, but the exchange rate doesn’t convert and the dividends aren’t what they used to be. One of you may not fully share choosing instead to maintain control by metering out money, love, or affection. When something is offered, it may be given with an air of moral superiority or withdrawn if the conditional strings get too knotty. But is there a real need or is someone taking advantage or becoming too dependent? This is a situation or relationship where things are off–there’s too much of something and not enough of another. An unfair circumstance is creating lots of emotional or passive-aggressive behavior to achieve what should be a mutual goal. It’s time to renegotiate. Either buy in, pay up, or opt out, but your relationship is an investment that should be bringing some reward.

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

Go for the gold or get out of the race.


There’s history to consider. This agreement is old and perhaps it doesn’t really offer the security you once thought it did. In fact, you may have gone along with it in the first place because of poor personal boundaries or habits that often leave you at risk of being swindled or misled in some way. Health issues, financial investments, or property matters have an influence over your long-term future throwing you in the midst of a major life transition that affects your relationship. While your inclination is to cling to the old notion of security, this is a closing cycle that will bring inevitable change. You’re now questioning past choices and the motivation behind them. Were you looking for love in all the wrong places? Worse still, are you bypassing love for the sake of convenience? Your symbol may be two fish swimming in opposite directions, but don’t get hooked on self-sabotage and scenarios that are contrary to your desires. You deserve the fairy-tale ending and happily ever after: 1. Let go of the past and lovers who are liars. 2. Stop lying to yourself.

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

This is a stress test. Can your heart handle it?
