Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs|Oct 21-25, 2019

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.


Despite the toll of physical and emotional demands, one of you seems to have cast a spell over the other that compels you to do the partner’s bidding. Perhaps it has you questioning your own mojo as you struggle to stand up for yourself, defend, or protect your personal rights or reputation. You hit a wall when either of you fail to compromise or you allow obstinacy to become an impediment. On top of that, you may need a strong fortress to keep outside forces from undermining your alliance. That includes bad habits tied to the memories of exes in the present scenario. If you’re looking to gain more than just wisdom from the hard knocks you’ve recently taken, it’ll take both of you to stop with attitudes that block both progress and resources. Put all those emotions and insecurities aside and get practical if you want to push through this. Neither one of you needs to do everything and end up with nothing.

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

Playing both sides of the fence.


There’s a battle raging and while it may feel like a clash of petty conflicts and ego one-upmanship with “the other”, the real war is the one you’ve waged against yourself. Perhaps you failed to act in your own interest or you’re meeting challenges because you did. Ultimately, the question is at what cost and who were the casualties? Can it be that there’s a secret wish to lose, because to do anything else might require you to rise to a level of success or intimacy that frightens you? Perhaps one of you bought into something that proved to offer nothing but empty or ill-gotten gains and no clear winners in the attempt to gain the upper hand. There’s a slim possibility for redemption if you choose to deal with the truth of a situation by acting with integrity instead of giving up the fight for your spiritual self. You can’t afford the luxury of taking a “wait-and-see” attitude. You’ve got to solve a problem that requires a combined effort at resolving your differences.

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

Battle of wills.


Something about a partnership, contract, or agreement feels restrictive, possibly due to deception on the part of others or even self. As a result, one of you feels chained to a circumstance that may be especially burdensome, challenging, limited, and just plain getting old at this point. It may point to responsibilities that come with parenting, age, career, or having to deal with or act as an authority in some manner. Either of you may be trying to get your way in a situation that tends to bring out the worst in self because of petty temptations, unhealthy habits, and the refusal to say no when you need to. The consequences of procrastination due to waffling between wanting to help and fearing that too much will be asked often means you opt for risky choices that may not lead to foreseeable solutions. Figure out what this connection means to you and your security before you let feelings undermine your judgment.

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

Take a re-laxative and just be done with this s%#t.
