Shooting it Straight – Water Signs/Sept 16-20

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.


One of you has no problem whatsoever sharing what’s on your mind. The problem is, are you sharing the right things or making a stressful situation much worse? Someone’s super emotional and may be creating trouble by trying to force a situation to go their way, especially when they feel slighted. Either of you may have difficulty “just letting it go” due to the compulsion to find out where you stand. Perhaps you feel that your emotions have been toyed with, your partner feels unloved, and you both feel a lack of fulfillment from this relationship. It’s unlikely given the present conditions that you’ll gain control. In fact, one of you will find out that you were NEVER in control and all the petty, dagger-throwing, foot-stomping, in-your-face power-plays are not going to make one whit of difference.

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

Don’t let it all hang out.


One of you has some real hang-ups that you can’t seem to get over. As a result of personal history, someone’s had to live a false self that feels spiritually empty. Perhaps promises weren’t kept or there’s been a failure to progress, either due to the lack of effort or commitment because one of you has changed your mind about a matter. There may be serious self-defeating habits or attitudes that need to be conquered or either of you may need to decide how far you’re willing to tow the line of sacrifice. While you may prefer to take the easy way out, events have recently transpired that call for a change in perspective about dealing with loose ends that have started to unravel as a karmic past you’d hoped to avoid resurfaces. Get very clear–that was then, this is now. What you’ve been waiting to express, may be coming too late.

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

Talk til’ you’re blue in the face.


You can’t wait forever–and you know that. You’re trying to figure out how to seize the moment and capitalize on opportunity by taking stock of all that’s gone before and turning face to the future. Something about a situation feels like a wasted effort or you’re still waiting for a return that never seems to arrive. You’re not even invested in the discussions anymore because the last little thing is now the last little thing you’re willing to put up with. As a consequence, you’re having to get your ducks in a row and take another look at where you’d like to direct your energy, time, money, affection and so forth before the expected letdown you’re anticipating in a current connection. You’re finding the alliances you’ve come to count on haven’t been all that helpful or cooperative. Now it’s time to reflect on how to get to where you’re going.

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

Good things come to those who wait.
