Shooting it Straight – Water 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.


Perhaps you were waiting for just the right moment to gain an advantage. But did this turn out to be a missed opportunity or a losing battle? A situation could end up becoming a bad investment of time, energy or emotion, especially if you’ve been plagued with indecision or a lack of commitment. Someone hasn’t kept a promise or is beginning to realize a vulnerability because of a circumstance that requires more sacrifice. One of you may be putting up a brave front, but behind the facade are fears of rejection, depression, or anxiety about the future. You may lose your nerve or stay stuck in your stance, but a victim mentality is keeping you from making positive change. Could it be that you’re putting in way too much effort to please while playing to the crowd? Dock the delusions. You’re going to have to turn this thing on its head to get ahead.

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

Give me a break.


I got the message–I have to work (or pay) for it. One of you may be getting educated on what commitment is really all about, especially if you’ve been unrealistic and failed to listen to advice or take notice of those important details. Perhaps someone was looking for greener pastures on the other side of the fence but realized just how much effort would be required. It could also be that who or what you desire has built an emotional wall and is now unavailable. A (potential) partner you’re interested in may be more focused on career and ambitions rather than relationship, or you might have created problems through one-track tendencies. Empty promises and a lack of appreciation fueled a miscalculation about the extent of the devotion to the partnership. Now someone’s feeling resentful and jealous because they didn’t understand limits and may be blowing a situation out of proportion.

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

Tone deaf.


Waiting to get married or have you changed your mind about a commitment? Either way, sacrifice and expectation are issues. Either of you may be frustrated when things seem to move productively forward only to stall. You may be dealing with an element of deception or a lack of clarity about the choice of lovers or partners that leads to a drama-rama fest of scandal, gossip, and rumors. The end result is disappointment that something didn’t turn out as expected or someone has failed you (or you them). You’ll need to examine your own commitment level to achieve an objective, especially if you’re looking through the clouded lens of attraction or irritation. The inability to get a clear picture before stepping outside of the norm could prove to be risky. You don’t have all the facts right now and you might wanna wait until you get them. When you take a second look, you may see it differently.

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

Build it and they will come.
