Shooting it Straight – Earth 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.


I wanna get next to you.” Hmmm. Does that mean get closer or get under your skin? A stressful, crisis-oriented situation is either bringing about an ending and pitting you at odds with those nearest and dearest, or spurring some sort of renewal. Perhaps this relates to loss, repair, or release related to family or an intimate alliance. Situations involving conclusions or wrapping up unfinished business tend to stir up deep emotions, intuition, and survival instincts. Either of you may need to surrender to or compromise in what appears to be a hopeless circumstance. Unfortunately, that’ll be difficult as one of you has taken up residence in the past and is resisting some much needed change. An overabundance of feeling is in jeopardy of either turning into full-blown depression or a drowning in the sea of love. Efforts at holding on to a situation or relationship taking its last gasps will only keep you stagnant and suffering unnecessarily. The rainbow will appear as soon as you let go.

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



Someone’s putting up a good front. One of you is wearing the bruises like a badge of honor while acting very determined to soldier on. But behind the wall is a lack of real commitment. Your defenses are up but your intuition is off about the timing and it’s throwing off your game. As a result, one of you is stepping out of a boundary you’ll soon regret in the chase for fame, fortune, or favor. Perhaps a relationship had grown stale or the excitement of the chase is what motives. However, a temptation to go here, there, and everywhere will eventually lead to nowhere there. At this point, you may even realize that an unwillingness to compromise forces you to stand guard at the gate, rather than as guest at the gala. The real battle is to beat old habits where you struggle to determine what’s worth fighting for and not.

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

Drama-mine pill.


I avoid, therefore, I am (not). Someone is in denial and closing off emotionally. While there’s the potential to manifest something to satisfaction, the mode may be questionable, and in some cases dubious. There’s the risk that either of you may resort to craft or cunning in order to get what you desire while taking things too far. Whether the attempt is to steal someone’s heart or their money, someone’s estimation is off the mark about self, a situation, or the other person. One of you needs to practice caution against getting tricked, duped, or browbeaten into action you regret. In fact, the message is more about wasting time in ways that rob you of your own happiness. Perhaps it’s time to develop some better strategies whether that means negotiating better terms, avoiding destructive habits or people, or getting the hell out of dodge in a situation.

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

Viewer discretion is advised.
