Shooting it Straight – Water Signs/Jul 29 – Aug 2

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.


Perhaps you’re unaware that you need to protect yourself better or that you’re facing an unknown threat. One of you may be on the constant defense or trying to gain an advantage while the other chooses to simply withdraw. At some point, you’ll have to defend your position, deal with your problems, or cut your losses. At issue could be a continuous stream of requests for help, advice, or assistance that bring undue burdens and responsibilities at the worst moment. The misconception of Darwin’s theory of evolution is that survival of the fittest indicates brute strength, when in fact, it suggests the power of a species to adapt to changing conditions. You’ll need to reconsider your stance and adapt to new circumstances if you want to create change that works to your advantage. If either of you are holding out, persistence in the power of persuasion could be key. This is a situation where you’ll either need to make something happen or something will happen to you.

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

Your boundaries are trash.


Are you focused in the same direction? Someone may present a heartfelt offer or invitation that goes unnoticed in favor of more worldly ambitions. Situations require that you reevaluate and possibly change course because of changed feelings. One of you is starting to realize that the reality of a situation stands in stark contrast to the romanticized version playing in your head. It’s either time for a few characters to exit stage left or for someone to gather the gumption to get the relationship established. One of you could be holding out because of old hurts, past rejection, or insecurity. But there’s no time like the present—it may be better to put it out there and let the chips fall where they may. Once in a while, you need a little fantasy to create the reality you desire.

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

I’m a slave…for you.


C’mon Pisces, we’ve had this conversation before. A you satisfied with how much work this is becoming? A lot of extremism is throwing off the balance in your life. The best case scenario is that you’ve got a generous benefactor bankrolling an ambitious endeavor. The worst case is that someone’s sitting around enjoying themselves while you carry the load. If you’re working to please someone, you’re realizing that there are walls to be scaled, mountains to climb, and burdens to bear. You’re at a critical juncture where you have to determine how much more you can take on and where improvement can be made that would allow you to feel better about life. It’s time to release unexpressed feelings, unsatisfied needs, frustrated desires, tension, and stress because of decisions to over-extend or a tendency to over-estimate what you’d be getting from a situation.

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

Monotony leads to madness. Don’t go crazy.
