Shooting it Straight – Fire Signs|Nov 18-22, 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.


Someone’s being overly dramatic and unyielding in the demand to have things their way and may have a history of doing so. Perhaps one of you is trying to shove ideas or beliefs down the throat of your partner, only to have them spit it back in your face. There’s a penchant for going overboard, to extremes, and taking too many risks in the incessant need for validation. That may be the least of worries if there’s also a tendency to go into straight b$%tch mode out of frustration. Either of you may be a very poor listener intent on ruthlessly fulfilling an unbridled ambition. But the over-aggression or domineering pattern to overpower others really speaks to a crack in the facade. Just because you have a big stick doesn’t mean you have to beat others over the head with it–unless you’re harboring fear that the love, recognition, or goal you so desire is not within your power to acquire. The dilemma is trying to maintain a harmonious co-existence. You’ll need to call a truce or at least find the middle ground acceptable to you both. If you can’t come to terms, get some outside help.

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

Baa, baa, black sheep.


It’s a high stakes game–all or nothing, black or white, love or money. There’s a psychological theory at play this week known as splitting. It’s a contributing factor to instability in relationships where one of you views others as either personified virtue or personified vice depending on whether they gratify or frustrate your needs. What erupts from this out-of-kilter outlook could be problems concerning home, family, marriage, or relationships with children that tie to security and stability, but appear to be hopeless. The home team can’t seem to score a win due to constant in-fighting, squabbles, and disagreements. With two 10s here, this is an ongoing cycle that’s been (d)evolving over time but is now closing out. With ten cups overturned, emotions could be spent and a pronounced turn toward building coins could be the focus. It’s imperative that someone steps up to take on more responsibility regarding the long-term future and its impact on material and emotional destiny.

Family history.


You may be discussing the need to keep your eye on the prize or the prize is all that matters. One of you could be over-managing in the pursuit of answers that center on security, be it financial or emotional, especially if there’s been any fiscal recklessness, dependency, instability, or a sense of entitlement. If one of you is not careful of overstepping boundaries, a need to be in charge could lead to arguments. There’s a question as to whether time or money has been well-spent or used productively. But with so much effort applied toward ambition, there may be very little energy left for the pursuit of love resulting in either of you feeling lonely or rejected. Obviously, withholding affection or emotion out of mistrust won’t bring you any closer in a relationship, but it also won’t help you avoid pain if that’s your fear. Perhaps less emphasis on outward appearances and more recognition of the inner is the real value here. There’s only one way to find the answer…
