Shooting it Straight – Fire Signs/Sept 23-27

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 feels the need to either protect or stand up for yourself. There’s a history of either being on the defense or trying to get over. Perhaps you’re fighting a lawsuit or dealing with estrangement, losses, or disapproval. Either of you may be focused on creating a lasting foundation of security, but having to fend off a partner whose efforts don’t support shared prosperity. However, a situation now requires getting down to brass tacks to discuss the future and money issues. In fact, one of you may carry the stress of being the perpetual problem-solver. Someone will need to be particularly adept at working a strategy if they expect to sway matters in their favor. This may require restructuring financial or emotional accounts to accommodate additional unwanted burdens. Unfortunately, either of you may be very difficult to please while playing the starring role of victim. The response could be to issue a rallying cry of solidarity or a raving rant that keeps you on the outs.

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

Speak volumes if you want to be heard.


Which one of you thinks the other should either put up or shut up? Perhaps there’s been a resurgence of popularity for one of you or some outside interference in the connection that’s causing either of you to question the strength of this partnership. With a major card that represents you, perhaps it’s your own insecurities that are threatening the union. You may have difficulty sustaining any relationship if you can’t muster the courage to master the animalistic elements of your baser instincts. That means releasing any jealous or domineering tendencies to overpower your partner by force of brute strength or sheer will. On the other end of the spectrum, perhaps you should just do you and stop biting your tongue and biding your time because of self-doubt stemming from a fear of being alone, vulnerable, abandoned, failing, or being rejected. Anger ain’t attractive either. Don’t close off to real partnership. Instead of creating an uproar, take a time out to get creative so you can claim the lion’s share.

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

You have to go on dates to be dating.


Where’s is the love? Maybe you’re asking that question right now because you’re upset about not getting your rightful recognition or you realize where you’ve just been settling. Because you feel you deserve the full spotlight, you’re not interested in any three-way parties or someone lording their self-professed superiority over you. Perhaps you’ve been battling it out with each other or not speaking at all, as of late. Either way, you’re coming to terms with a rude reality. Your confidence level has taken a hit and it’s causing you to question what you’re doing. And what you’re doing is self-sabotaging by putting energy and time into situations that look good initially, but tend to end in frustration. Could be if someone isn’t willing to work with you within reason, perhaps they’re working against you. Make sure that someone isn’t you.

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

Due process.
