Shooting it Straight – Air Signs|November 4-8, 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.


There’s a surprising wake up call that arrives out of the blue. Perhaps it comes because of an infatuation that hinges more on the physical rather than the inner. Someone may be highly sensitive to allowing idealized projections to take over as opposed to dealing with the jarring reality. If things don’t pan out as planned, one of you could resort to disruptive or passive-aggressive behavior that escalates close to hysteria. Maybe it’s a fatal character flaw or the overwhelm of a situation that keeps one of you drained and unable to offer the sensitivity expected. On the other hand, perhaps something was said, that while shocking and difficult to swallow–is also true. Unsettling circumstances are placing pressure on one of you to shift your approach. A breakdown, breakup, or breakthrough is the catalyst for change.

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

Final fantasy.


I’m lookin’ at you lookin’ at me. Perhaps one of you is trying to establish the foundation for a relationship that’s solid and reliable, yet the steady stream of unrelenting obstacles keep getting in the way. You and the partner stay at odds by trying to counter each other or win with unfair tactics. There’s a dream you’d like to develop and either you can’t do it alone or you’re forced to. The problem is that one of you refuses to listen or is so caught up in winning that perhaps you actually miss the prize. There’s a lot of criticism and control due to the dogmatic view of life in black and white terms. Eventually a habit of taking someone or something for granted is going to come home to roost. It’ll force you to deal with what you should have already. This is a relationship that works only if you’re equals or doesn’t work because you are.

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

Getting to know me. Getting to know all about me.


So…is that working for you? It’s time to consider your role in a situation and how you happened to end up where you are. Perhaps the monotony of doing the same thing again and again and again, whether it works or not is the issue. It could be bills, the drive for success, a need to protect yourself, or a labor of love driving the determination to cross that finish line, but change is definitely in order. There’s a push for power, albeit self-empowerment, that motivates one of you to seek opportunity–but at what cost? The rut you’ve fallen into triggers repetitive criticism, carping, quibbling, and endless fault-finding. One of you needs to understand that getting ahead requires one step at a time without trying to navigate, draw a map, outline, graph, or chart the future. There are no corners to be cut, but you can also improvise once in a while. All that attention to detail would take you a lot further if it was related to the little things that also make your partner feel appreciated.

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

Put your heart in it.
