Shooting it Straight – Water 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.


Is a direction change in order? You may be waiting for results, an answer, or an agreement and wondering what the risk factor is. There’s been a breakdown in communication largely because of the need to win or “best” the partner. Now either of you could feel like efforts are fruitless at arriving at a mutual consensus when one of you is still nursing a grievance. Perhaps a pause allows you to gather your thoughts and reassess a situation where threats, sarcasm, or insensitivity was a strong feature. The consequence of a truth has revealed a deal-breaker. Misrepresentation and a refusal to accept new ideas leaves you both hanging in limbo while waiting for the other to make the decision or first move.

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

Waiting list.


Struggling with third party situations? Perhaps you’ve been left as a bystander to the festivities. One of you is especially thin-skinned and taking offense to off-hand remarks that may very well be innocent in nature. Regardless of the circumstance, a situation is taxing your strength and wearing down your endurance level, though you’re determined to “protect” yourself. It’s possible that there’s been some overindulgence either physically or emotionally. As a result, someone needs to sort out the truth of a situation that’s been over-blown, exaggerated, or embellished to achieve a particular agenda. Perhaps one of you feels you’ve lost your rights, but it’s possible you’re just being obstinate and overly-defensive about plans that were unrealistic. Objectivity is out of the question with an out of kilter, over-active imagination that leads one of you to the self-centered conclusion that someone is fighting over you or with you.

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

Trigger happy.


Feeling cut off from the world? Perhaps you’ve made some decisions for your own health and well-being. Either of you may have overstepped some emotional boundaries because of a failure to recognize limitations or when to say no. Now you’re stuck in a rut with an unsatisfactory outcome due to unfinished business. There’s a lack of emotional maturity where insecurities drive tactics like revenge, accusations, and intimidation in the relationship. Someone doesn’t like to be challenged and may be unwilling to grant the same freedoms they demand. This means it’s back to the drawing board to deal with those loose ends that can’t be tied up until one of you has the resolve to work on self-esteem issues as the catalyst for change. A fresh way of communicating is key to clearing the mixed signals.

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

It’s a cruel, cruel world.
