Shooting it Straight – Water 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.


An unexpected situation could occur where you end up surprising yourself by coming up with a quick solution or by using your powers of persuasion. If you’re not careful though, the result could be a rush to judgment that binds you to a circumstance–one of those crazy ideas like getting hitched in Vegas on a whim or a whirlwind decision to move in together after you’ve known each other for only two days. On the other hand, you could be on the defensive about who’s in charge if the only goal is to succeed at all costs. Someone thinks that their word is THE word and the last word. Period. This disrespectful behavior isn’t likely to go over very well with the partner. In fact, the fallout could get rather ugly when either of you start to lose your temper. Know what this is really about? Of course, it’s about getting what you want. Do you know what you want? All of this pent-up frustration simply needs the proper outlet. Got any good ideas?

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

Make love, not war.


You’re having to decide how you really feel about something or someone in the face of changing conditions. One of you may be extremely intolerant of an opposing view or questioning the commitment level, especially if recent actions created drama you were ill-prepared to deal with. An invitation or offer may have been “innocently” extended, now there are consequences to consider because you didn’t listen to advice or intuition from the start. In fact, there’s a lot more to this situation than meets the eye–secrets, projection, repressed feelings, past conditioning–a lot of muck to wade through and you may need help sorting it out. This isn’t necessarily going to turn out exactly as you had envisioned. In fact, one of you is throwing hissy fits about following the “rules” of the game when the game has changed altogether. It may be your party, and you can cry if you want to–but does anybody care?

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

Grow the f#$k up.


Starting to feel like your job is just to come in and clean up the mess that was left behind? Sure, you’re good at getting organized and planning things. But was this the plan? Now you’re wondering why you’re being left with the scraps. Hey, my sweet Pisces, you’re just so easy to take advantage of. But perhaps part of the problem is your inability to resist taking over and taking charge of situations whether they fall within your jurisdiction or not. Keep playing earth mother and you’re gonna have a grown “child” on your hands. Pretty soon you’ll realize that the only way to have a relationship with this person is on their terms. Maybe you’ve been asking the questions, but it’s time to take control and get some answers. Start with you.

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