Shooting it Straight – Earth 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.


There’s a dilemma and one of you may be on the defense about it. A change of tune, change of heart, and change of mind now has you stuck in limbo with an important choice to make. Communication is a problem area and while the process is waiting to play out, either of you could be getting rather testy. In spite of matters currently up in the air, you’re more than ready to meet a challenge head on. In fact, you might even relish cutting someone down to size if you find them at the forefront of a fault-finding mission motivated by manipulation or jealousy. But, my lovely Taurus, letting them rile you up by waving that red flag in the wind is the strategy they’re using to pull you into the bullring. You know what happens at the the end of the bullfight, right? The wrong decision could be deadly. However, sooner rather than later, you’ll have to break the stalemate and take action. Use the power of intellect. That might mean getting some good advice to find a resolution.

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

Just holding the sword isn’t going to cut it.


Keeping your eyes on the prize, are you? It could be slipping away due to some over-the-top habits. If a real opportunity fell in your lap, would you recognize it? Either of you may be more concerned with “appearing” to be happy, successful, attractive, etc., rather than focusing on the deeper aspects of relationship. This might mean an obsession with the material or the physical where spending habits, sex, or working long hours are now influencing the ability to make a true connection. The impact could cause you to miss the chance for a heartfelt exchange that puts your relationship on solid foundation, especially with someone you struck out with in the past. In fact, a tendency for not showing up or delivering on a promise could jeopardize your future as a couple. There may be value in going over old ground or cutting ties with the past. What’s it worth to you?

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

It’s not that serious. The relationship or the problem blocking it?


What’s your address? Not your physical home, but rather where your heart is? You’ve entered a karmic period of closing chapters that may feel stressful. Perhaps you’re dealing with crisis situations that involve health, age, separation from a partner, or consciously choosing to spend more time alone to focus on something important. In spite of a good deal of solitude, you’re also revisiting people, places or issues (if only in your head) with the goal of moving past toxic or abusive situations that left you disappointed–repeatedly. That could mean clearing out clutter from the recesses of your mind or the corners of your room and keeping someone at bay until you figure out the next move. You’re in discovery mode regarding exactly who and what you’re dealing with, self included. Finding out these truths could easily bait either of you into losing a waste of time face-off intended to showcase moral or intellectual superiority. Make sure you’re focused on the right things or you’ll miss the boat. It’s not what they say, but what they do. Take notes.

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