Shooting it Straight – Earth Signs|Feb 10-14, 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.


One of you could be obsessively focused on business income or a travel obligation. Matters may not progress as you’d like when a chronic or longstanding habit emerges that slows the forward motion of events due to pessimism or some form of deception. The surprise of a sluggish response to addressing responsibilities, restrictions, or a temptation toward the toxic may force either of you to review the real cost of investment. On the other hand, perhaps fear and negative thinking are the true culprits that cause you to talk yourself into staying chained to each other or a bad situation. In this case, time may work for or against you. The sooner one of you decides what the limitations are (i.e. what you’re capable of and not) in every aspect of life, the easier it’ll be to practice self-control and determine where you may be pushing your luck.

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

Old habits die hard.


This should have been a celebration. Instead, you may be waiting for a fight or hoping to make progress in a battle that’s testing your patience. Perhaps the problem is that one of you is partial to doing things on your own, in your own way, or inhibitions keep you from joining together. Thus far, reluctance or self-doubt has blocked you from moving forward to find out where you stand in a situation or deal with a pressing matter of worry. Perhaps it’s the excessive self interest coupled with a tendency toward impulse that’s making it difficult for one of you to be pleased with a partner’s effort in the attainment of a goal. As a result, delays, interruptions, or obstacles can spike the cost of success to a higher price than expected and pose an unnecessary risk to your security. There’s a need to seek direction in the impetus for change to create a win-win solution.

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

Friend or foe.


Just a little innocent research…or perhaps a bit of prying. One of you may be observing the vulnerability inherent to a situation and attempting to gather information by resurrecting a relationship that serves to manifest a desire. But the real intent is to keep a distant arm’s length by telling only what you deem to be the vital parts of a story. This could be an attempt to maintain equilibrium, but more likely it’s an effort to steer matters in your favor. But doth thou protest too loudly for the preference of your own company? Could the truth actually be that an aggressive stance taken in self-righteous conviction is what isolates one of you? Someone needs to decide if they want to be the back story or the front cover.

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

Separate the sheep from the goats.
