Forecast for July 29 – August 4, 2013

by Kathy Biehl

Where we start the week and where we end it are likely to be miles and miles apart. It begins with a rare and welcome moment of stabilizing. After that … fasten your seat belts.

The stabilizing comes from a fleeting but dazzling configuration that has the potential of harnessing all the water energy of the last two months. If that brings to mind the possibility of generating electricity, you’re on the right track. The rest of the week is an intense, volatile and ultimately freeing ride hosted by the cosmic change agents.

In the process, some of what you’re carrying could and probably will fly out without your noticing. (I’m remembering once coming off the Runaway Mine Train at Six Flags Over Texas and discovering that my sunglasses and all the candy sticks I’d just bought had escaped from my purse.) Where the ride lets you off may not be the expected destination, but it will fit the trajectory of the last year or so.

Throughout it all, collectively, wounds are out in the open, with Chiron in an easy flow to the North Node. A lot of what’s coming up for air is dank and festering, from being below the surface for years. Sunlight and air will do them, and us, good. Eventually.

On Monday a second grand trine briefly moves into place, in earth (linking the Moon in Taurus, Venus in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn). This interlocks precisely with the water grand trine we’ve had since June and is creating a Star of David, with each point the same distance from the next. (Gaze upon the chart for yourself.)

Whether this presages some magical, mystical development remains to be seen. At a minimum, the line-up is pouring spiritual and emotional potency into practical areas of your life and giving physical structure to the energies and other intangibles that have been coursing through us. Watch for opportunities to ground the rampant water/emotions in mundane situations — love (commitment even), finances, restructured obligations, baggage dumping — and to nourish all the physical manifestations we’ve been seeing of dreams and inspiration.

Some of the current is rushing deep into foundations, too, and reaching the places where we’ve been experiencing cracks, fissures and tectonic shifts for the past year.  The flowing water may wash away debris and loosened boulders; it may also cut new pathways and even canyons as it cleans and reshapes internal landscapes.

During the moment of stabilizing you may feel somewhat like a frog plopping onto a lily pad, or an athlete pressing onto a springboard, or a martial artist sinking deep into his torso and legs before striking. When the moment of rest ends, though, the movement that follows is not one lyrical arching leap into the air. It’s closer to a video game character frantically flying and kicking and flailing this way and that until a barrier collapses and a way out opens.

July ends with an open current between the planets of desire and money (Venus and Pluto) and drastic, sudden clashes between our drive and the cosmic agent of unforeseeable change (Mars and Uranus). Cravings and compulsions override hesitation or common sense. Temptations and triangles defy resistance.  Passions and tempers flare and lead to the unexpected. Walls will tumble. Don’t be surprised if you kick a few down yourself.

Crossroads appear before the dust settles. (The Sun and Venus are making adjustment aspects to Pluto and Uranus.) Will you base your choice on fear or other primal instinct, or stand in your own truth and personal power? Another issue is breaking from the/your norm because it suits you now, as opposed to doing something for shock value or rebellion.

Relationships could turn on a dime. The ones that pivot toward “yes, please” will find opportunities to link up nicely on Friday. For that one day, the archetypes of the masculine and the feminine are getting along and cooperating, which should yield interesting developments on a societal and legislative level.

No matter where your route takes you — and there’s no one-size-fits-all path for this —  everyone’s enjoying fresh air by the end of the weekend. Inner constraints are simply no longer an issue. You’ve been going with the flow, letting life lead you and not forcing your hand for so much of the summer. It’s time to drop the poker face, pick up your cards and play them boldly.
