Shooting it Straight – Fire Signs/July 1-5

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.


Does everybody have an opinion on what you should be doing? Maybe it’s because you’re all over the place and yet never on the same page as your partner when it comes to getting assistance or reward. One of you might feel as if you’ve been taken advantage of and that the relationship has changed to the point that you’re no longer willing to share ideas, especially if those ideas tend to be met with criticism or control. Some unwelcome news, gossip, interference, or possible infidelity is putting a damper on your happiness. Who’s at the center of this party? If one of you is offering information, the other one is not sure if they really want it at this point–there’s a desire to move on from the inconsistency and theatricality of the three-ring circus. There’s also a realization that motives are selfish, and with that, an acknowledgment that what’s being shared may serve an agenda or not be altogether accurate. One of you needs to look more carefully at the data–the numbers don’t lie.

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

Money talks.


Someone doesn’t want to join the party and both of you can feel it. If someone is sharing advice or a decision, one of you has decided that you no longer want to get involved, either because you’ve shut down emotionally or because a secret has been revealed. This could be a rote response based on habit patterns deeply rooted in the past, but it’s also due to ever-shifting goalposts and self-serving game-changers (yours or theirs). A lot is happening behind the scenes that suggests your relationship is currently undergoing reconstruction. What you thought was a date with destiny is now a romance under review. As a result, one of you may decide to withdraw to rethink a matter, promise, or goal. Is this situation still the “golden opportunity” it once appeared to be, or are there so many strings attached that it’s starting to make you feel like a wooden marionnette? Who’s the real puppet master here? With so much projection, either your mind or your emotions are running the show, but it’s time to let intuition take the lead.

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

Politics is defined as the exercise of power. You’re not the ruling party.


Say what?! Can you repeat that–or stop repeating that so I can add my perspective? There’s something that you would like to work out a whole lot better–a situation, objective, or relationship. It’s not that you’re not clear on what you want; you’re not getting the cooperation or clear information that you need. That’s because there’s been some misrepresentation–either materially or emotionally. In fact, someone may have felt emboldened to exaggerate, embellish, or flat out lie. Clearly, one of you is not having it. You don’t intend to be exploited or taken advantage of by this situation where the other party is showing a lack of respect through a half-hearted effort. Overvaluing someone or something is costing you way more than you’d planned. If you thought your beloved was the cause or the answer to everything, they’re now starting to look like a huge question mark.

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