Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs/July 22-26

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.


Is it madness or magic? Either there’s an overwhelming amount on your plate, in your cup, or in your shopping bag, or the desire for so. A staggering number of options may require a reality check about what you really want and whether it’s attainable. Perhaps someone offered the illusion of help when you were hoping for far more. A situation now has the potential to go one of two ways–a rich imagination could royally pay off or end up as mere fantasy. No matter how deeply you want something to be so, it won’t happen without putting in the required effort. But where should you devote this energy? Dreams needed to be grounded in reality, especially when the material or emotional is involved. Poor choices about how to spend your time, emotions or money could lead to disillusionment stemming from unrealistic ideas and muddled thinking. On the other hand, an opportunity could literally fall into your lap that gives you the chance to get grounded or establish a relationship. Stop talking, planning, devising, strategizing, fantasizing, hoping, preparing, plotting, and procrastinating. This is as good as it gets–go after it.

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

Put your passion out there.


What’s the not so subtle influence behind a review that has you looking out there and beyond? An opening and an opportunity has presented itself for either of you to wield the power of magnetism to sway a situation toward your favor. In the interim, a show of doubt could mean that someone gets manipulated in the negotiations to move forward. Your intuition is telling you to look at the bigger picture to determine what you’re getting out of a situation where the partner is attempting to dominate by imposing their values. But value-conscious Virgo, with your fondness for facts, you’re not interested in temperamental tantrums or overly dramatic behavior based on hearsay. If only they had done what you “told” them to do, instead of rebelling to prove they didn’t have to. At some point, you may lose interest or decide to stop listening altogether when the self-promotional demands become too excessive or jealous insecurities start cropping up. If it’s you who’s interfering and micro-managing–be ready to greet a short fuse that’s ready to blow.

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

I did it my way.


Frustrating situations surrounding health, success, or destiny are blocking your happiness. Perhaps either of you may be dealing with some form of heartbreak that causes you to turn your back on the potential for success or romance. Anger triggered by the release of a secret, thwarted ambitions, or the painful revelation that a situation didn’t work out as hoped may create further damage if the first response is to resort to self-centered or aggressive behavior. If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen. A setback means you’re not clear on the rules of the game or how to play it. Turn the light on to illuminate a situation that has caused you some grief in the past. As difficult as it may be, you’ll be better served by trying to see the positives. Instead of playing prosecutor, work toward diplomatic solutions that influence and attract what you need.

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

Go one step further.
