Via + Conjunctio → Carcer (1234)
Astrogem Casting for week commencing 29th March 2020

We’re going to be Positive.

Much of the planet is suffering from the effects of the Covid-19 virus in some way or another. It would therefore be silly not to recognise this within the approach to the Casting.

Flow continues whether we are going about our daily work or stuck in quarantine in some cramped accommodation somewhere finding it difficult to cope with forced isolation.

Flow tells us the ‘nature of the times’. It tells us what ‘now’ favours and what it does not. It tells us what we can capitalise on and what might work against us.


In all this, there is one thing which Life has done, is doing and always will do: it is always adapting.

Now we could adapt ourselves by being forced or constrained by current circumstances and simply curl up and protect ourselves, surviving the best we can to try and weather the storm.

But we could instead choose to be positive and to continue to impose our uniqueness on Life.

We could take stock. What have we got to work with? What can we do with this change of circumstances?

If you consider this time and opportunity to be new and fertile ground, then instead of feeling put upon you could see this simply as ‘passport control’ leading to potentially new, untamed and uncharted lands.

If you knew that you were being presented with a new opportunity, would you take it?

Will you be in the first wagon-train to set off across the prairie?


Knowing that things aren’t currently as you planned, will you adapt?

Can you adapt?

Will you try?



Talk about clumsy! There are four Rogues this week! Four gemstones did not want to go back until they had delivered their message. It was a complex message, but it did all hang together as you’ll see at the end.


Via the sixth house (Leo) is full of possibility. The sixth house represents the perfection of yourself within your internal world. It is not simply how you see yourself, but how you feel yourself to be armed and prepared to face the world in the best way you can. And given that the overriding influence is the majestic Leo then Flow is easing the way for you to be the best you that you can be. To rise up majestically.

Via has possibilities on each of the four Levels. At the start of a Casting Via is always going to radically affect the second geome to produce an ‘all new’ Active Transform: Four pebbles are thrown into still-water. The ripples are going to spread outwards, but they are also going to affect each other in ways that no one can predict.

(The idea of throwing four pebbles at a Lion — and the consequences of doing so — seemed to be a more troubling metaphor to me! If it works for you though, please use it and let me know what happens.)

Whichever way you look at this Flow favours you taking charge. It’s a beginning. It is going to be up to you to decide what you start and where you go.

Conjunctio in the ninth house (Scorpio) shows two principal forces affecting you: Authority and insistence on the rules (which obviously fits nicely), and that only what works needs to be considered. Scorpio, particularly in the square aspect like this, encourages you to remove what does not work. Free yourself. Get rid of the dead wood. Think optimistically of the essentials you’ll need to your journey forward. Think how to adapt.

The Pars Luna this week is in the 10th house (Sagittarius). This provides a useful indication to recognise and work within imposed institutions rather than to try and break them or complain about them. Those on the wagon-train aren’t complaining. They are moving and adapting as they go into unknown territory.


Take control of your Destiny


The Active Transform this week is Carcer (1234) in the 12th house (Aquarius). This is an interesting placement showing the constriction of Carcer’s Saturnian restrictive and educational influence in an airy, humanitarian, deep, unconventional and hidden or confined set of circumstances. So what is the message here? What change is needed and how?

Practically it means that it is all well and good to talk of change being necessary. Talk is easy.

We may see clearly the situation in front of us requires a different approach in what we do and how we do it.

But will you do it? Will you really make a change? Will you adapt?

Adapting does not mean throwing away everything you already have and that you already know. It means using what you have and what you know in different ways to meet changing circumstances.




There were four Rogues this week:

Laetitia, Via (again), Cauda Draconis, Fortuna Minor

Listen to your thoughts; let your imagination provide insights rather than worry.

Know how you feel; be open to possibility.

Clear away what does not serve you; get and keep a sense of bigger and longer perspective.

Keep to the practical and what does serve you in the real world.

Sharing is loving — please spread the word of geomancy by sharing this casting with your friends and followers.

Thank you.
