Shooting it Straight – Water 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 looking at you looking at me. It just got real. The curtain has finally been pulled back to reveal some struggles with ego (and perhaps money as well). There’s a lot of strife and disruption that causes either of you to feel defensive. Is this a relationship or a competitive sport? One of you is constantly nitpicking and challenging the other for the advantage and it certainly doesn’t feel like you’re on the same team. It’s causing a review, and with that, questions about life, goals, and whether there’s real emotional support. In fact, both of you may be reassessing exactly what you’re getting out of this relationship, if anything at all. But there is an opportunity to work together to solve the problems, though it will mean going above and beyond what you’re currently giving. Unless, of course, you’ve lost interest or totally lost control of this situation. If that’s the case, what are you waiting for–permission? Procrastination or indecision about the next move places you in a holding pattern that makes for an easy target.

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

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. (Buddha)


Someone’s still smarting from rejection and feeling lonely. Recently life has begun to feel like a struggle because not a lot has gone as you’d hoped. Some recent setbacks may have involved financial strains, suffering from health challenges, or simply losing faith in a situation. If your relationship is on less than stable ground, either of you may feel misled about the commitment level. There’s been a lot of anger, sharp words, arguments and one of you has the audacity to think you know it all. The effects are putting quite a damper on your love life and your physical well-being. Now one of you is trying to figure out what’s at the root of this dilemma and may be willing to plot or pry in order to get some answers. You’re on the precipice of a situation where just one more thing could deal the final blow to your relationship. Try as you might to avoid emotions and stay intellectual to rise above it all, the energy between you incites self-righteous behavior, intolerance and exaggeration. Scorpio, you may be immune to your own venom, but your partner is not. Let go of huge expectations in this relationship and start with smaller goals that stand a chance of being realized.

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

Go for it doesn’t mean the jugular.


I’m keeping a record. The past or family history provides a compelling timeline about how you ended up in the here and now. A spectrum of issues related to wealth, domestic situations, children gone rogue, family in-fighting, disapproval or estrangement means that your material links with others will either strengthen or degenerate. Some recent breaches in trust are pitting parties against each other and creating troubling situations that demand attention while also taking a bite out of your time or money. As a result, you may feel tempted to give in to the pressure of demands for the wrong reasons. While reaching for the rainbow means you’ll have to compromise, that doesn’t mean your personal values. Your own history of accommodating others just because it’s comfortable needs to be examined. To get over the rainbow, you may have to rock the boat.

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

Full stack for high stakes.
