Shooting it Straight – Water 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.


While you might wish to take control of a situation, it’s likely that something will not go according to plan. Events related to communication or travel will bring matters to a head and hopefully eliminate what’s been standing in the way of claiming your personal power–but not without some stressful interactions. Perhaps you’re having a rushed or heated discussion with a partner about where you stand. This could be as a result of either of you being forced to face the music for past decisions. You could be angry about concerns that impact your security as well as unexpected demands or responsibilities that hold sway over the stability of your circumstance. Problems occur when one of you robs the authority of the other by making decisions that rightfully belong to the partner. Now you’re having to rush in a situation that threatens to leave you behind.

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

Pushing your agenda.


Leaving so soon? Someone is determined to go their own way on their own terms. Perhaps one of you was too enthralled with your own affairs to even notice that the other one has moved on. There’s been some disenchantment with the past probably because of damage done by rivalry, gossip, or rumors where you may have felt inclined to attack back. It’s best to let it go knowing that any retaliatory strikes will only cost you in the end. Perhaps it’s just time to cut some dependent emotional ties with people who have too many demands and too many expectations. Either of you may decide to seek new interests or new people to fill the void. You’re finally beginning to realize when a situation or person isn’t right for you. Uh, unless, this is really about difficulty in making a commitment because fear drives you to perpetually abandon relationships of value.

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

Dearly departed.


You’ve got a strong tie to that card on the left, Pisces. Yep, you’re in your element which means the influence can bring out the very best in you–or the very worst. With two majors you’re having a moment–a spiritual moment. There could be an agonizing wait in store or someone “hanging around” who’s not altogether welcome. Perhaps you’re in the midst of an inner conflict about whether to move on something or take action. There are definite questions about judgment and if one of you is following the “correct” course of action. On a bad day, you might be striving toward the goal of becoming St. Pisces while making useless sacrifices as the martyr you’re prone to be. Obviously, this is the naivete that allows traitors, liars, and opportunists to lead you like a lamb to a wolf, or worse, deceive yourself into walking straight into the den of your own accord. Self-pity or escapist tendencies won’t revive a situation. Unwelcome change requires action and the need to face a disappointing truth.

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

You be the judge.
