Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs/Aug 5-9

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.


What’s arousing all this bullish bellicosity? Just like your zodiacal mascot, you’re naturally laid-back and social (with a huge appreciation for green). Perhaps too much time in isolation having endured endless taunting and harassment is now testing your temperament. Either of you may resort to tactics of intimidation or confrontation if challenged on issues (namely security) where you could be rather set in your ways. You may find yourself charging into conflict with the least bit of provocation, especially if you feel someone is trying to control what you say, how you say it, and your freedom of movement. These bouts of aggression and head-butting are likely to begin and end rather quickly once you’ve established the terms of dominance. But don’t be enticed by the moving target when you should consider the bigger picture. Either of you may be too quick to find fault, or too slow in taking decisive action. Get mental instead of going mental.

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

F&#k how it feels.


Someone may be producing the goods a little too late. Either of you may have decided that emotional or physical healing is more important than just making a buck OR you’re sick of not having the security you were banking on. While one of you may be attempting to share valuable information and stay focused on the material, the other is tired of this chronic situation and choosing to withdraw. Someone is sick of dealing with denial, trying to maintain the status quo, not rock the boat, or waiting for a better turn of events. However, in spite of being ready to make some much needed changes—nothing is happening…at all. But what’s your record? Could be there won’t be any communication or movement UNTIL an apology or fully detailed explanation is provided about how one of you has been keeping the books–emotional or financial.

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

A gold mine of information.


You’re willing to test the waters with regard to something, but either of you could take flight at any moment when things don’t go as expected. And they probably won’t. You’re trying to reconcile your relationship or come to terms with drama surrounding expectation and commitment. There’s the need to marry a desire to go against the grain with the convention of also maintaining some measure of protocol. But are your values and beliefs compatible or is one of you over the top and out of control? Are you doing your fair share to compromise for this relationship to work or has it become about being “right”? The gospel truth is that neither of you needs to “earn” salvation, so cool it with the fire and brimstone. But you do need to stop procrastinating and commit to having some serious discussions. And while there’s the inclination to want to preach and teach, keep in mind that the vantage point from the pulpit is very different from the pew.

Splitting hairs about splitting up.
