Shooting it Straight – Air Signs/Sept 2-6

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.


You could be spending more time alone and in reflection about what expectations between the two of you are valid. Perhaps you are taking into consideration issues of health, age, education, or experience. You may be researching the means to provide the lifestyle that would allow you to become more self-sufficient or to spend more time idling away pursuing your own interests. Stressful events are now pushing the unavoidable awareness of a false security. You no longer have the luxury of putting aside concerns that have been sitting in the urgent file. One of you may need to examine whether a time-out for mental/emotional space is a healthy pause or actually an overly-concerted effort at shutting out the world when demands are not met. The catalyst may be a secret that comes to light, information, or gossip that is less than flattering that causes you to realize that someone/something you have held in high regard is actually a source of problems or heartache.

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

Starting to see the light.


If you’re going to share your feelings, at least be honest about them. Perhaps one of you is in love with love–the perpetual dreamer. They had you at–hello. Keep in mind that Prince(ss) Charming is very good at saying whatever will lure you into the lair. The problem starts when the hopeless romantic becomes–just plain hopeless. That’s when the manipulative, irresponsible shadow side kicks in and someone starts looking for the escape hatch. One of you may be manipulating the other and getting frustrated when demands are not met. Avoiding accountability for keeping secrets, habitual lying, being seductively vague, or outright withholding information has created some trust issues–go figure. Now you’re sorting through dark emotions related to jealousy, disappointment, or betrayal and you’ve got plenty to say about it. Perhaps this is a relationship that no longer has value or one that simply needs mending. If you feel like this is love and your cup is full, better make sure neither of you are full of it.

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

Trade secret.


There’s a real focus on commitment and whether you want a traditional relationship. Someone is being very close-minded or stubborn in their approach to a situation. After all, commitment comes with expectations, responsibilities, and those damn rules–everything that goes against the Aquarian desire for freedom and independence. Either of you may be reviewing exactly what you’re getting from this partnership and whether the exchange is mutual or should remain platonic. Perhaps as a team you’re capable of accomplishing a great deal. On the other hand, some accusations about misrepresentation have been raised that are drawing you into some drama. Financial concerns, reckless behavior, or unreliable attractions and distractions have proven problematic. It’s hard to stay family when you’re fighting about trust, especially if judgment is undermined by the desire for acceptance.

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

This is all too family-iar.
