Shooting it Straight – Earth 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.


You’re looking over here when perhaps you’d better start looking over there. Maybe you needed a rest to gather your thoughts, but while you’ve got your eyes closed in that tranquil reverie, a disaster could be headed your way unless you recognize exactly how to manipulate a situation to your favor. Either you or the partner has been biding time and keeping the other one in the dark about what’s really going on. For one of you, relationship is no longer a priority. Perhaps the grief of hardship, loss, difficulty, betrayal and so on has left you bitter and resentful. This may be why you’ve decided to go it alone and shut out the madness of foolishness and stupidity while you build up your defenses. You’re wearing full armor now and ready to do battle with mind and tongue. Yes, you’re a tad vindictive–because you’re tired of being treated unfairly. Just be sure to play it cool. A situation hinges on what is said–and not.

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

Alone in the dark.


You might be putting up a brave front, but you’re deeply worried about a situation. You’ve had to make some unexpected changes recently that affected your schedule, your money, or your relationship. While the target destination is clear, you’re having difficulty figuring out how to get there intact. Some delays, misunderstandings or setbacks have caused a detour. While you take great pride in knowing everything, dearest Virgo, why not let your partner drive once in a while, especially if they seem to know the lay of the land, dare I say, better than you? And even if they don’t, an excursion every now and then might be worthwhile. While you can’t see it now due to an emotional preoccupation with a person or outcome you’re obsessing over, there are some other options up for grabs–those alternatives you cast aside for various highly principled reasons. But don’t take the high road so you can look down on your partner. Take it so you can share the view.

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

It’s all or nothing.


What are you trying to hold on to–old ways, old thinking…old money? There’s a history behind this. Either of you may be blocked from or perpetually hold back on–affection, love, money, assets. You may be involved in territorial disputes where you vie over the power to rule the kingdom. In your mind, you’re just protecting what’s rightfully yours. But it may be time to consider what these ongoing worries about security are costing you. Perhaps someone is really holding on for dear life to protect their heart. Unless, of course, they’ve become so mean-spirited and selfishly concerned about the material that they don’t have one anymore. There’s a lot at stake and it’s playing out as problems, disapproval, estrangement or disputes. What risk are you inclined toward–gold futures or a golden future?

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

Love don’t cost a thing…is just a song.
