Shooting it Straight – Fire 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.


Have either of you received or delivered a threatening message? Is it necessary to put yourself at risk with a bold declaration? If so, perhaps frustration now requires that you take immediate action in response to a matter that has been a source of grief. An invitation is on offer that relates to opportunity, community, friendship, or romance. Negatively, it might involve legalities, a love triangle, or some third party interference centering on loss or the need for change. Curve-ball communication could bring in some unwelcome news or highlight relationship issues that put a damper on happiness. As a result, either of you may need to tread lightly when the connection experiences an uncomfortable transition that’s inexplicable to you both. A small change in both attitude and environment can make all the difference.

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

Did you hear what I said?


There are control issues regarding who’s in charge of the empire. Losing direction or dominion also means losing sight of the consequences. One of you is less than excited about a circumstance where blocked development leaves you feeling ineffective, powerless, or pessimistic. A surprise situation, news, or encounter tied to the past is triggering extreme self-awareness that, in turn, changes your emotional engagement with each other. In the heat of the moment, passion can quickly turn to anger when attempts to stifle individuality take the relationship for a turn neither of you expect. But the larger problem may be the ensuing apathy and the dwindling desire to help. If you’re looking to deepen the bond, it requires a more measured balance of emotion and/or communication where both of you open to new possibilities. That fresh start is likely to begin with a break–from one another–if only to regain enough enthusiasm to come up with a better strategy.

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

Rise to the occasion.


A particular way of doing things may be a source of pride for one of you. But is the routine really more of a rut than anything else? Perhaps clinging to repetition is more so a response of regret about past events that failed to yield results. While either of you may wish to shut off to the two cents being shared (or two cents is all you’ve got), bitterness isn’t becoming. What’s called for is creativity. One of you needs to (re)gain the confidence to consider a direction change by looking at the investment of time, money, energy, or emotion and whether it’s time to renounce or renew. You’ll have to come to terms with ending or rekindling a situation where the emotional stakes are high. Either way, this process needs a plan and some patience. In the interim, one of you will need to temper your expectations of others. Don’t wont for waiting–fill your own cup.

On a wing and a prayer.
