Shooting it Straight – Fire 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.


One of you is realizing that you’ll need to become more self-reliant if you ever expect to enjoy life in the manner you aspire to. But failure to open up to suggestions, assistance, or advice can mean being by your lonesome whether you choose to or not, especially if you’ve tried to climb over others in pursuit of the superficial. There’s a tendency for hyper-criticism where the focus on practicalities comes at the cost of emotions. One of you may feel both surprised and crushed to discover that you’ve been verbally attacked or that your own words have carried heavy consequence. Someone is now questioning whether expectations have been unreasonably high, particularly in the demand to be taken care of. Either of you could have placed your faith in a false situation that now threatens to upend your security, peace of mind, and/or reputation, and this time, charm alone won’t cut it. The benefit of being on top is the opportunity to lift your partner. Recognize the wisdom of an opportunity to move forward when it arrives through mutual exchanges that have true value rather than momentary distractions of limited entertainment.

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

Partner let me upgrade you.


Are you hiding your star? There’s something that either of you could refuse to face and the denial of it is dimming your light and damaging your health. The problem could be that when self-worth is too entangled in what others think, you become open, vulnerable, and sensitive to criticism or perceived slights. Someone’s faith is being challenged, especially if one of you hasn’t addressed old self-defeating patterns and conditioned responses that have been keeping the door of opportunity bolted closed. Neither of you will be able to hide for long when something is exposed, whether a betrayal or your own self-deception. There’s an ending, transformation, or the facing of a truth. With two majors, lessons arrive through the subconscious in order to address your fears and anxiety about material concerns for the future. While one of you may be acting on instinct in the unconditional pursuit of your own conviction and strong self-will, the strain of that determination could lead to emotional tension between you. It’s time to take a closer look at new possibilities. When you do, help could arrive from a hidden source when you least expect it.

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

When you wish upon a star…


The focus is to keep security in hand–financially and emotionally. You might feel you don’t have enough of either and that you’ve been slow to make progress. Either of you may feel resentful, jealous, or unappreciated, especially if there’s been a tendency toward infidelity or for your partner to talk a good game with little action behind it. Perhaps one of you is running low (on cash, emotional fuel) while the other with plenty is unresponsive on all counts. Current circumstances have created a shift that requires both of you to reassess the level of loyalty in relation to costly habits or patterns you’ve thus far taken for granted. Without that conversation or the clarity of commitment, plans tend to end in a power struggle. You need a breakthrough in a situation that’s been full of empty promises and unpredictability. Don’t identify so much with the material and you’ll start to trust your intuition about what can be accomplished on your own.

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

Growth spurt.
