Shooting it Straight – Water Signs|Oct 7 -11

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.


If one of you has the authority and the other has the know how, why not join forces and combine the two? Your intuition may be telling you something, but you’re paying it no mind. Something’s going on behind the scenes, and one of you is the inside trader (hopefully, not traitor) and knows precisely how to cut through the confusion, but may be keeping it secret. But if you’re not fully engaged in the conversation, how can you expect them to be more involved? Maybe nobody’s getting the message because communication is riddled with habitual patterning from childhood, past experiences, or memories that remain unresolved and unaddressed. How convenient that not listening gives one of you the leeway to make up rules for this relationship that would suit you better. On the other hand, someone may have turned away in response to the other person trying to control their situation, life, perception, etc. There’s a re-think required about an opportunity and the relevancy of what you “think” you know, believe, or feel versus what’s a convoluted, old notion you need to turn your back on.

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

Knowledge is power.


“We need to talk..” never seems to bode well for the start of a conversation. It usually is a precursor to revelations you’d rather not hear, especially when there are issues of mistrust involved. Could be that either of you have recently fallen from the pedestal of love due to a lack of wisdom and maturity necessary to maintain a real relationship or fallen off the wagon into escapist habits related to substance abuse or addictions. The end result is that someone is being manipulated or is emotionally oblivious to the needs of the partner. The worst case scenario is the bitter realization that one of you is a fraud and just plain insincere. Whatever is going on is complicated and may connect to a celebration that was planned for next spring. In the meantime, it’s impossible to take back what was said.

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

Shut the door or shut your mouth. Maybe both.


The truth will set you free only if you have the courage to share it. You may be telling it like it is to move past a situation which might literally include movement–a trip, move, relocation, a long distance relationship. You’re hoping for a swift recovery from a circumstance that has sorely tested your strength of character due to a revolving door of disappointment. The desire is for a quick solution that puts the recent stress and tension of a toxic and abusive situation squarely behind you, even if it means severing ties (family included). Whether you find yourself drawn into conflict or galloping past, all depends on whether you’ve learned the lesson of taking decisive action to remove yourself from pointless and destructive habits or people.

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

Where’s the exit?
