Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs|Jan 27-31, 2020

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.


Perhaps overwhelming anxiety or depression is affecting your relationship. There are questions about whether one of you is adequately recognized in the pursuit of a hope or the wish to make changes. But the claim to fame might also share space with the knowledge of notoriety. Situations could place what exactly either of you are known for under scrutiny. Is one of you known for disappearing, spending extravagantly, drinking, drugging, dreaming? An unexpected opportunity on the horizon depends on the ability to distinguish fact from fiction. Any hope for advancing an interest will remain an illusion until one of you recognizes that gains must come through the loyalty of both enlisting and extending assistance. The key is to rise above without casting your shadow. There’s an influence that can help you determine which goals have true value before moving forward or wasting time.

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

Go toward the dream.


Conflicted about marriage/commitment? Working on your relationship? Trying to break with the old order? Either of you could be grappling with unmet expectations, demands, or the repercussions of ongoing inconsistencies that put you at odds. There’s a competitive drive based in egoistic dogma and the need to be in charge. Along with the need to be right is also a struggle to do the right thing. However, situations will now demand that you review facts over feelings about what is “right” for you as opposed to the conservative or conventional beliefs of another. It’s time to look at who and what you align yourself with. It may be that coming together in spite of differences to think outside of the box in order to solve problems can be immensely productive. If not, this can be a discouraging period of accusations, back-biting, and sticky-wicket drama related to reckless behavior and wrong alliance.

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

The right fight.


One of you could be on a defense that’s wearing thin and putting you under some form of duress. You recognize either the advantage or the vulnerability of having something exposed and out in the open. The only hope for victory is your hope in the face of uncertainty and in spite of setbacks. The advantage lies in the wisdom of experience and the practicality of thinking that offers a clarity unfettered by unfounded fear or unwarranted optimism. In spite of the reality of a troubling situation, change is on the way. You’re being guided toward an opportunity to greet your personal best and realize mutual goals. But there’s a danger for one of you of allowing too much emotion to distort faith. The real barrier may be the obstinacy that keeps you from trying harder or to do better.

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

Protecting the future.
