Shooting it Straight – Water 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.


A sudden truth, shock, or argument may have brought a situation tumbling down. These aren’t pretty cards and one of you may feel a lot of remorse and regret about some things that were said that cut to the heart and shook either of you to the core. Someone feels betrayed and back-stabbed by a situation that wasn’t necessarily out in the open–until now. As a result, one of you is having to let go of an outdated mode of thinking and give way to the possibility of a new direction–for better or worse. For some, there’s been a consistent failure to pay attention to the warning signs that are now leading to crisis–health situations, accidents, property issues, or challenging, life changing events. While either of you may fold under the pressure to surrender to depression or martyrdom, the fact remains that you will have to pick up the pieces and rebuild as a couple or on your own.

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

It’s just a story. Change the ending.


One of you is very determined to put your “house in order.” Perhaps you’re shelving emotions in order to do that and choosing a more detached and practical approach toward relationships. There are also important decisions that may center on family, reaching goals, and achieving a measure of success. It’s clear that one of you is hoping to lighten the load and avoid a rerun of past disappointments, possibly because of marital problems, family disputes, wayward children, illness, financial issues, etc. This can suggest a willingness to cut off any connections that don’t allow for total control in the all-encompassing effort to avoid disaster. The problem is that the concern driving either of you to protect self can easily turn into cold, calculating, vindictive, or even deceitful behavior. For the relationship to work, you’ll have to accept each others terms. That just might mean giving up the reins and following the lead.

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

Fall in line.


Someone may be questioning decisions or rejecting advice. Perhaps you’ve decided to turn your back on a difficulty or you’re finding it difficult to do so. Either way, wires have crossed and it’s presenting some challenges to your relationship. One of you may be very gifted at solving problems, discussing intellectual matters, and arriving at logical conclusions, yet sorely lacking with regard to the spiritual or emotional side of life. Either of you could be disheartened by the partner’s lack of sensitivity or the motions of doing what’s expected without the romantic passion to accompany it. In your mind, these failed efforts don’t really make you feel as if you’re getting anything out of this relationship. On the other hand, perhaps the emotional chasm between you is caused by jealousy, suspicion, and controlling behavior tinged with ruthlessness, especially when things don’t go as expected or when actions or beliefs are being challenged. Become the impartial observer to discern whether it’s possible to work out equitable solutions or if your partner is just a selfish a#$hole.

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

It isn’t personal.
