Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs/Sept 9-13

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.


And you think I care? Think again. A couple of things haven’t turned out well and it’s becoming one thing too many. There’s a lack of faith in some recent decisions and it seems like things are never going to get better. You’re not getting the support you need–no one seems to understand how much you’ve been through because they’ve been too busy hobbling along and focusing on “their” hurts, needs, insecurities, disappointments, yah-da, yah-da, yah-da. You’re sick of going without materially, physically, or emotionally. Instead, you’re looking toward the future and shifting your gaze away from problems to concentrate on solutions. Perhaps you’ve decided that some things are just out of your authority and you’re ready to turn your back on those who are either spiritually corrupt or perpetually needy.

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

Baby, it’s cold outside.


Are you frustrated about having to move on from something or are you moving on from the frustration? It’s likely that you are revisiting a place, person, or past issue where there hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing. You’d like nothing more than to get past troubled waters to recover from the tension and disappointment attached to some bad news where you were hoping for a very different outcome. But the real frustration comes from repeatedly trying to devise schemes to navigate past uncomfortable situations rather than put in the hard effort to row through rough seas. Unfortunately, someone’s all wet (and not in a good way). Perhaps a splash in the face will wake one of you to the reality of getting involved with people who are toxic, or wasting time and energy making the same mistakes, or having to deal with unresolved issues you didn’t properly address the first time.

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

Strike three. I’m out.


“You got me where you want me. I ain’t nothin’ but your fool. Ya treated me mean. Oh you treated me cruel.” Aretha Franklin ruled as the Queen of Soul. But who or what’s ruling your soul? Someone’s having to make a decision because the past is finally catching up with the present. Either of you may be upset about delays, restrictions, obligations, an ex, or dealing with authority figures tied to karma and personal history. New and unsettling circumstances that you may be ill-prepared to deal with have caused you to unwittingly place yourself at risk and at the mercy of those willing to take advantage of your good nature. On the other hand, perhaps controlling or manipulative behavior on your part is keeping you chained to destructive temptations that harm self and/or others. Either way, one of you will need to get clear about boundaries in a situation that presents an imminent danger of pulling you over the edge. Be prepared for a cliffhanger.

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

Chain of fools.
