Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs/Aug 19 -23

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.


Cut it out, Taurus! What is all that worry about? You’re smart but that doesn’t mean you have all the answers. You do have a lot of questions though. Did you do the right thing? Are they making the right choice? It’s time to change a way of thinking and open up to talk about your paralyzing doubts or fears. You know–the questions that keep you up at night. Can I stand alone? Do I want to be single? Is my partner faithful? Where will the money come from? Is my health failing me? So much thinking about making good decisions is making you sick. An over-emphasis on being independent is masking your true feelings of vulnerability. Now you’re having to backtrack about what and why you’re doing what you’re doing. What you really need is a break if you’d like to stave off a breakdown.

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

Live to work or work to live?


Is something shaking up your very foundation? You may be arguing with or about family or find yourself caught up in a confrontation. Something long-standing in your life is experiencing major change and it’s requiring you to let go of ideas or beliefs, and in some cases, tangible assets. Perhaps there’s been a crisis to manage or a life transition that has turned everything on its ear. Either of you may have a history of trying to break with the past, shake off the status quo, or rock the boat in ways that meet with disapproval. This situation is creating worry about the long-term future and whether anything will be left standing after it’s all said and done. After the dust settles and the shock wears off, one of you will realize that you may not necessarily need everything you want. Something’s gotta give–make sure it’s not your temper.

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

You want to be heard, not be part of the herd.


Really? That’s the choice you’re making? Sure about that? Someone’s looking sideways due to a difference of opinion or about whether the answers add up. Either of you may have recently made a decision that holds an uncertain outcome and now feel overwhelmed by all the various factors that need to be considered. On the other hand, perhaps you’re not dealing with how you’re really feeling about this tense situation and choosing instead to sit on the fence until you sort it out. Obviously, this thing can go in two directions. And therein lies the problem–make a move or sit and wait, be proactive or follow the path of least resistance, continue the battle or call a truce. On top of that, you’ll need to get clear about who’s really stirring the pot. Could be it’s not what’s “out there” undermining progress, but rather the conflict brewing within you.

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

Just when you think you’ve heard it all…
