Forecast for August 12-18, 2013

The pressure’s still on. It is pushing and shoving us through an uncomfortable, unavoidable and unstoppable process, toward a culmination we can’t entirely predict.

Until that pops out — next week, at the earliest —  growing pains are still with us. So are labor pains and whiplash from the rollercoaster that life is simulating just now. The fundamental cosmic influences of last week are still in control, so much so that I refer you back to last week’s forecast for this week’s overview.

There’s one wrinkle: This week may be less intense. (What a wrinkle, right?) That could be because no new dramas are complicating the ones already in progress, or that could be because you are growing somewhat accustomed to the pressure.

Whichever, the week does feel like the eye of the storm. The eye is a momentary calm, not the end of the storm, but a brief break in it, when the winds die back and you can step outside and see evidence of what the storm has been doing — before the winds ramp up and the rest of the storm moves through.

Enhancing the calm, or at least the illusion, is a lovely shift in our desire to connect with each other. Venus, the ruler of relationships, money, creativity and all that we hold dear, is moving on Friday into her second home of Libra, aka relationship central. While here Venus prefers harmony and grace in words, music, art and, of course, how we get along. She inclines us to strive for (not necessarily achieve) balance and fairness. She’ll be advocating for civility and beautiful turns of phrase in the midst of turmoil, and for creating works of art to capture, process or convey this extraordinary process of growth.

For a fuller discussion, please read my extended weekly forecast for both this week and last. For another take on this week’s events, listen to my quickie podcasts for both this week and last.
