Shooting it Straight – Water Signs|Nov 11-14, 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.


The goalposts are changing. Perhaps one of you has run out of patience and is waiting to shake things up, waiting to argue, or waiting for the fallout. Maybe you’re moving, dealing with property, a new job, changing your lifestyle, or breaking off a relationship. Major shifts due to recent insights or revelations are occurring in areas of life that have been stagnating or where either of you need more freedom. Beliefs or ideas that you both once heavily invested in are now breaking down and may require that you restructure to make necessary adjustments in the emotional or financial arena of life. These unsettling circumstances demand that you let go of something or someone, like it or not. Before either of you explode, take careful stock of what’s truly valued. Shock and awe may have been a military tactic, but one of you won’t appreciate the bluntness. Perhaps a bit more awe and a lot less shock is the key.

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

Half-hearted is half-a$#.


Could be that someone’s questioning whether to wait, to resist, or to forge ahead. Either of you could feel overburdened with work, responsibilities, stress, or tension. Circumstances can easily play into your fears, doubts or insecurities about failure, feeling trapped, being alone, or rejected. Perhaps it’s time to consider releasing a few of the burdens that keep you overwhelmed and in the habit of making excuses for not delivering. Maybe taking a little time out for romance, spending time with your children, or doing something fun or creative actually rejuvenates both self and the relationship. In fact, taking an objective step back might reveal that one of you is taking matters much too seriously or still holding on to a grievance. A time out could give you the added perspective about a situation where ego made you all too willing to pass the buck on taking responsibility.

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

For real, though.


Is this deja vu or you can’t step out of yesteryear? One of you is having a difficulty related to old emotional ties, a love affair, worries over children, struggling with expectations that haven’t been fulfilled, or revisiting the potential and possibilities connected with a friendship. Something about the past is coming back to haunt you through the reappearance of a person or situation where any mistakes work to your disadvantage. There could be some muddled thinking, jealousy, or revisionist history taking place. What’s said and not is understood by both of you. As a result of the past, feelings have changed and either of you may change your mind about the nature of your relationship. Perhaps you started this alliance without really thinking it through, or you’re discovering the chemistry is off, or you’re trying to figure out just where this is headed. You’ll have to make a decision about how you really feel, an offer, or an invitation. The impact will either change your perception about reaching new horizons or wake you up to crossed boundaries.

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

Nothing personal.
