Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs/Aug-30

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.


Maya Angelou said, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” Hopefully, you’re taking into account those wise words and using what you’ve learned to guide you toward something better, especially if past mistakes included an abusive marriage or toxic relationships. Unfortunately, you’re not able to make the quick getaway that you’d hoped for if you’re still dealing with the residual effects of choosing the wrong lover, partner or mate. Someone is allowing moods or desires to justify actions, particularly when money is involved, that may invite unnecessary problems, false accusations, or nasty rumors. Old habits die hard, especially those that are tied to expectations. There’s a better way for one of you to deal with something rather than wasting time making excuses. Either commit or split.

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

This sh#t is getting old.


Working to build a fortune are you–at what cost? Your relationship? One of you has fallen into such a rut of nitpicking and criticism that you can’t see the forest for the trees. Someone was so busy focusing on the details that they failed to see the change in the wind and the writing on the wall. Bills, bill, bills. “Can you pay my bills? Can you pay my telephone bills? Can you pay by automo-bills? If you did then maybe we could chill. I don’t. think. you. do. So, you and me are through.” Those lyrics were out long before Bey became a queen or one of you starting expecting the royal treatment. It feels like fate has blown a wild card in a situation that has depleted you financially or emotionally. But the fact is, that either of you set these wheels in motion when you said what you said or did what you did. One of you is looking for the other one to show up and put up. Someone needs to decide whether to make a change or settle for the change.

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

Don’t play me cheap.


You’re gonna need to put some of those sticks down if you plan to reach for the sky–you can only carry so much of the weight. While there’s a desire for the opportunity to close out a cycle and start something new, one of you may be resistant, overburdened, spinning out of control, or blowing things out of proportion. This relationship is hardly equal, possibly due to selfishness or insensitivity. Either it’s ALL about you or NEVER about you. Someone’s taking an all or nothing approach of disregarding advice or opinions, or refusing to get help with the unfortunate result of keeping the odds stacked against. Heavy conversations and weighty words make an impact. At issue is the ability to communicate effectively without undermining either yourself or your partner. One of you may be outright lying to the other, or worse, conning self through self-proclamations of genius. “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”

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

Watch what you say–unless you want to start some sh#t.
