Shooting it Straight – Water Signs/Aug 26-30

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.


Get ready to rumble…or tumble! If you’re not careful about where you’re headed–you may have either an accident or an awakening, possibly both. One of you is feeling pressured to move forward with single-minded purpose, even if it means bull-dozing a partner in the process. But in spite of the wish to get on with things, you’re likely to experience interruption, disruption, confrontation, or delays mainly due to forces outside of your control. Either of you could feel the temperature rise when your viewpoint is challenged and conflicts could quickly turn militaristic ballistic if you can’t get a handle on your moods or emotions. But you’ll have to stop propping up the propaganda–anything false is fair game for falling flat. Issues could run the gamut of crisis-oriented influences related to divorce, property or vehicle issues, health challenges, etc. Feel free to drive a point home.

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

One big, happy family. Right?


I’m still testing the waters about how I feel about this situation. An issue requires careful negotiation, but that could be difficult since one of you may not feel the same way you used to about a situation. You’ll have to find the middle ground between you, especially after an uncomfortable shift that’s caused either of you to question the partnership and whether you’re still compatible. Something about the chemistry has been off; maybe it’s due to some jealousy, selfishness, or heartache. Could be that one of you feels that you’re expected to live up to a standard that’s mostly in your own mind. On the other hand, one of you could have serious issues that need healing. Infidelity, addiction, obsession, or anything else over the top and out of control could prevent a compromise. Whatever it is, you’ll both need to come clean about some bad habits that turn this connection into a bad relationship.

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

Just. f#%kin. say. IT.


Okay, Pisces, I’m getting tired for you. This is the third week running that you’ve had this heavy card. But perhaps, finally, you’re coming to terms with an agreement about exactly what kind of load you’re willing to bear. Of course, you’re resistant to being wooed by the charm and seduction of any offer where everything’s not totally open and aboveboard (although you may be quite willing to keep a few secrets). You’d prefer to shoulder the responsibility yourself before getting lost in the romance of something unreliable. In fact, you may be hard at work trying to push someone to grow up and act more responsibly. But if you think you’re “the one” to make that happen–keep dreamin’. If work is all you’ve got to keep your feet firmly on the ground, then just keep pushin’. Just be sure any reasonable prospects don’t pass you by while your nose is to the grindstone.

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

An offer you can’t refuse.
