Shooting it Straight – Fire 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.


Okay Aries, how long are you gonna keep closing the door to new opportunities because you can’t get over how it all went askew last time? Sure, whatever situation you currently find yourself in right now has your fingerprints all over it and it’s making you scared to drive in the fast lane. But is drivin’ Miss Daisy really your style? Yes, hand in the face to the naysayers, the haters, the doubters. BUT, if you’re resistant to change that would be helpful and don’t ever listen to any advice, including constructive criticism, you’ll keep ending up at nowhere. Besides, this is more about what you’ve been saying lately and how it’s coming back to bite you, especially if dishonesty is involved. Part of that narrative comes from expectations that are out of balance. You believe too much in the wrong thing or too little in what life has to offer. Now you could be dealing with instability or unexpected problems due to your attraction to the wrong things or the wrong people. You’re first in line in the zodiac. Take that premise and be a leader in taking charge of a situation where you need to be more self-reliant, self-sufficient, have greater self-worth or gain some self-mastery.

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

That’s on you.


What’s the devotion quotient? Something is going on the behind the scenes that has one of you doing a rethink about whether you want to be involved or not. Someone is starting to think about how the influence of the other is eroding the personal identity. Maybe it’s motivated by the desire to protect and serve, but the effect is stifling nonetheless. Perhaps it’s time for one of you to listen to your own voice, just make sure you don’t leave out the facts when you do, or all you’ll hear is the drone of overly-emotional self-indulgence. If a partner has been unreliable or turning a deaf ear lately, perhaps it’s because they’re not interested in playing enabler or martyr for your cause. If it’s you who’s made the choice to back off, you may realize the needless sacrifice you’ve been making for an unrealistic objective. Even so, there’s a strong need for nurturing, protection and comfort. That desire could either provoke you to take control over your life or it could simply start to control your life.

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

Food for thought.


What stuff is coming up for you now and possibly coming out into the open? It’s time to go deep and you may be mulling over memories of betrayal, disappointment, failures, or loss. Struggling with depression, uncertainty, or waiting for the other shoe to drop could be wearing on you physically. You’re tired of the backstabbers, liars, and cons that have tested your faith to the point that you’re not even motivated to try anymore. You’d like to see a major shift in situations that have stalled or haven’t gone your way. Well, guess what? As long as you stay mired in fear, anger and self-defeat, you’re not going to attract anything BUT. If a secret suddenly comes out, it’s likely to be one you kept hidden away from yourself, even if someone else is the perpetrator. It’s time to heed the warning signs of danger at that first flash of red–not after you’re vulnerable, wounded and lying on the battlefield. You won’t find solutions with your face in the dirt–you can always die another day. Right now you need to see yourself and a situation clearly so that you can come up with a plan of action that leaves you as last (wo)man standing.

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

I am legend.
