Shooting it Straight – Air Signs/Aug 12-16

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.


Calm down–let me pour you a drink. (Or is that a bad idea?) Some things never change, particularly if one of you is desperately holding on to an idea, habit, or belief that is really at the root of your unhappiness. But is all that bluster really necessary? Things have come to a head and you may be lashing out in frustration when the discussions challenge your position leaving you mistrustful or emotionally overwhelmed. But an uphill battle you’re facing requires you to be more persistent in dealing with emotions and rethinking priorities, especially concerning situations that no longer hold value. This is a karmic opportunity where either of you may be seeking advice or assistance that requires the partner to make adjustments. You’ll gain more if you negotiate from the heart without criticism and judgment and attempt to wield influence through the power of love.

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

An old-fashioned revival.


You look like a million bucks! Change is good–until it goes too far–like a preoccupation with the material, the comfortable, the beautiful. Perhaps apathy, extravagance, or self-indulgence has taken over your connection to the point where you’re not even trying or you’re trying too hard. One of you has played a direct role in the current state of affairs through a gamble of recent words or deeds that took a situation spinning in a different direction. Either of you may be none too pleased if your confidence level took a plummet because of failed expectations. But just because it didn’t work out immediately, doesn’t mean it won’t. Whether you realize it or not, you’re being supported through a lucky circumstance that may not feel all that fortunate–for now. This respite is for a reason. It’s a momentary pause that allows you to reset, recharge and re-optimize. Baby steps–this thing has to grow. You’re not there yet, but you’re drivin’ up real close.

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

Keep calm and carry on.


Where did that come from?! They say old sins cast long shadows and this could be a week of emotional endings, hidden anger, or shocking secrets that come out of the darkness and into the light. Perhaps you break up with a partner or face a situation that changes either of you on a profound level. As a result of procrastination or denial, traumatic events may force a shift you’ve been resisting, yet had the nagging awareness was on the horizon. Getting all caught up in the emotion of a situation could be the prelude to a meltdown or confrontation between you, especially if a truth is delivered with a blow or in the form of attack. On the other hand, your intuition could prod you to issue your own surprising statements. Just make sure you know all the facts first before you go letting any cats out of the bag, especially those living out a ninth life, or you may not land on your feet. Try to relax and go easy on yourself. A bolt out of the blue could offer an unexpected solution that feels right.

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

You can keep that sh#t to yourself.
