Shooting it Straight – Water Signs|Dec 16-20, 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.


Is this a case of “like father, like son” or have you been handling situations the very same way since you were younger? Are you choosing between an older man or a younger suitor? Depending on which way you swing, perhaps the sword is not as sharp. There are challenges related to communication, control, and decision-making. For one of you, arguments, revenge, or a lack of resolution may be due to a belief that you’re always right. Inaccurate perceptions, suspicion, selfishness, or just plain social ineptness creates problematic exchanges. Either of you may need to seek guidance or counsel to help you get in touch with the emotional side of self and stop distancing from love. On the other hand, a lack of understanding may cause you to cut communication or leave someone to fend for themselves, especially if you feel they’re trying to control your situation, your life, or your perceptions.

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

The gap.


One of you may be hoping for satisfaction in the future, but are you satisfied just to watch on the sidelines? Maybe–if what you’re tempted toward carries star quality. While you’re waiting for a wish, you may indulge your desires with whatever else can bring pleasure, comfort, or contentment. However, these pursuits can come with a consequence if you overestimate yourself or a situation. If there’s a delay, you might close off to hope or by the time wishes are actually fulfilled, you could discover they’re not worth what you thought they were. Unsettling circumstances are likely to force you to deal with the reality of a situation where you’ll need to decide whether you’ve actually got a shot at something or if you were just dazzled by a no-win situation. If your faith was warranted, you can expect a gift to be delivered, albeit when you least expect.

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

In good faith.


Someone is waiting patiently for support or to complete unfinished business, yet failing to see a truth or accept advice. Perhaps one of you is too self-contained, distant, or isolated in ways that work against you. Age, health, or concern for mental well being could cause you to excessively withdraw to the point of loneliness. Either of you may be working through a stressful situation or dealing with a crisis that requires objectivity difficult to muster. Instead, the response may be to provoke, confront, or criticize while giving others excessive power over your emotions. This may be rooted in feeling powerless or exploited. But one of you should stop talking and start listening. There’s the realization that feelings run deeper than first acknowledged. You can’t see clearly with your eyes shut.

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