Shooting it Straight – Air Signs/July 15-19

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 baaaaack. Yep, you’d like to move on from a conflict that’s been raging for some time now, but here you go again just when you least expected it. You thought you saw the shoreline and then a storm blew in and took everything off course. Could be that you feel you need all decks on hand, but yet you both want to be at the helm. Now you’ll have to pass through some turbulent waters to try to start over–again. Someone’s not getting the concept that this two-person crew will need to take turns. Continue with the miscalculations and blindly placing faith in the wrong relationship or circumstance to keep your self-esteem afloat and you’ll end up doomed to sail on your very own Flying Dutchman. Open your eyes and see this Fata Morgana for what it is before you’re lured into a sinking situation. Things will smooth out when you gain control–of yourself.

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

If you stay mad, you’ll go mad.


Have I painted the picture for you? Recently, there have been some accusations that flew out of nowhere pushing matters to a head. It seems that one of you is a little too insecure or needy right now. If you can’t forge forward together to make some improvements in the relationship or a situation, either of you might start to feel as if you’re carrying dead weight. But cooperation could be sorely lacking due to poor decisions, jealousy, fighting or upsets where third parties are involved. As a result, things are becoming frustratingly complicated and costly. The unexpected now requires a face-to face sit-down to discuss what’s gone wrong and how to make it right. You can still turn this relationship into a masterpiece if you’re willing to put in the work.

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

News travels fast.


Things are either getting progressively worse or you’re imagining the worst. Either way, it makes for some sleepless nights. You may be under extreme stress due to illness, guilt, depression, or because of a few regrets. Someone’s hands are tied and there’s no escaping a nightmarish situation where one of you bullies the other and expresses false remorse until the next round. Adding to this complicated affair is the steady flow of responsibilities, obligations or news that seems to fall in your lap at the very last and worst possible moment. Perhaps it’s time to overcome your fears and break free from the constraints of a confining relationship or thought pattern. After all, it could be you holding the rope. It’s not your job to “save” anyone other than you. Will the real you please stand up–for yourself?

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

It’s just a mind trap.
