Shooting it Straight – Air Signs/July 8-12

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.


I’m trying to figure out why you refuse to see this for what it is? Perhaps one of you is either anxious to keep the other tied to a circumstance or waiting to be freed from it. Part of the problem could be grandiose ideas that need to be cut down to size in favor of more realistic goals. On the other hand, a lack of confidence could be blocking either of you from making a move, and consequently, making any progress. So what is the self-sabotage that keeps you stuck in the endless loop of disappointment really all about? I mean, it’s one thing if you’re into bondage and quite another if you’re getting squeezed. You probably realize that as bright as you are, you don’t always make the best romantic decisions. This is especially true if you’re beginning to see the lesser side of a partner or showing yours. In a troubled relationship, matters may have reached the critical point where you can barely hold back the anger–rope, blindfold, and duck-tape are starting to look like a good idea. But before you go there, try to reasonably put your feelings, not just your thoughts, out into the open. If the conversation goes well, “my hands are tied” could take on a totally different meaning.

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

Get a room. I want to tie you up.


(First, are you deeply involved with a Pisces (sun, moon or rising)? Maybe it’s coincidental, but you both have the same cards in reverse order.) There’s something you know you need to do, but you’re probably stuck in a rut and refusing to make the necessary changes that would bring improvement. One of you realizes that you should be moving in a better circle or direction, and yet you keep falling back on those old, familiar habits. But if you don’t reach potential, you won’t be satisfied with the outcome. There’s unfinished business that needs to be addressed, so stop wasting time. If either of you thinks you can achieve a goal through circuitous means, a half-hearted effort, or by cunning or craft–you’d be lying to yourself (or to each other). You can try to hide out from the world or travel it, but until you deal with those loose ends, opportunities will be limited. Either of you may need to stop pushing the envelope (financially or emotionally) and giving in to temptations that fail you and put you at risk. You’ll need a winning strategy that focuses on the end result. For that, you have to commit to either start something new, finish what you’ve started, or bring something to conclusion.

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

Stop being jack of all trades and learn some mastery.


Is this the beginning, or the end, or the beginning of the end? You’ve got to improve, repair, or get clear on a situation before it’s too late. The past could be a problem and something about it could haunt you until you make what appears to be, in spite of resistance, an inevitable change. With Mercury in retro, it won’t be surprising if situations involve a blast from the past and the repercussions that come with it. This may have to do with renewing an old tie, trying to rekindle a romance, or dealing with someone you wish you hadn’t. Whatever it is, it’s shaking up the status quo, and not necessarily in a way that’s pleasing. It comes with a fear of facing the unknown and requires you to release an outmoded situation that has become unproductive in order to reach for greater security. Your ability to deal with the unpredictable determines survival–of self and/or your relationship. Is it the fear of intimacy? You may be looking back to the future to do what you wish you had done in the past.

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

Up close and personal.
