Shooting it Straight – Air 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.


Why just look at this golden opportunity here in my hands! But you just might blow it if you’re too afraid to leave the security you already know for the unknown of a new potential–one that might bring you closer to someone you care about. A wild imagination swirling in issues of over-indulgence, emotional insecurities, and an obsession for the material or physical might only provide relationships that end up as friends with benefits, if anything at all. There’s a tendency to go too far or too fast and end up losing the stability you seek when you label a partner as either the problem or the answer. Perhaps there’s a desire to heal a situation, but one of you feels that the price of sharing is much too high, especially when there’s been a failure to deliver on promises in the past, infidelity, or either of you haven’t been completely truthful. But without that intimate connection, a relationship in unlikely to develop further with any certainty. One of you needs to feel safe in sharing without fear of overreaction as the indignant response.

When you open your mouth, don’t just blow hot air.


The devil made me do it. Really? That old excuse. One of you is selling, but is anyone buying? Someone’s losing patience and wondering about what’s taking so long or whether a situation is even moving in the right direction, especially if there are questions around limits or who’s obligated to do what. If it’s you who’s forever waiting for things to get better, it’s time to stop procrastinating and get down to business to deal with unhealthy behavior and/or toxic attachments. Either the fear of being exploited or the instinct to gain is making it difficult to remain objective enough to to stick with the facts without adding a more palatable PR spin to suit the personal agenda. With two majors here, your situation includes lessons that are karmic in nature and playing out in ways beyond your control. In fact, it’s the lack of control or good judgment in turning away from petty temptation that’s keeping you chained to a negative circumstance that strips you of your authority. You’ll lessen the odds for error in the future when you finally face the fact that you’ve made some mistakes. That’s when your survival instincts will kick in and if anybody give you hell, you’ll tell them to go to hell, rather than go down in flames yourself.

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

Shut…the f&#k…up.


You may be really worried about the recent choices that you’ve made or those of someone close, especially if painful criticism or bullying was involved. It’s exhausting going over old ground and the lingering effects may be depression, regret, guilt, or remorse about the pain that’s been caused or the suffering endured. These unwanted and unpleasant changes are currently affecting your state of mind and perhaps the physical health as well. While your first inclination is to step in and fight the good fight in someone else’s name, that would mean overstepping your authority and making choices that aren’t yours to make. In fact, the desire to do so is creating friction in the relationship, especially if the other person is unwilling to consider all options. This is a spiritual struggle that requires that you walk away, if only temporarily. While it may be difficult, it’s also essential to your own well-being.

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