Follow The Grain

Fortuna Major + Fortuna Major → Populus (34)
Astrogem Casting for week commencing 4th June 2023

Fortuna Major in the 10th house (Aquarius) shows that the world, your place in it and your control over it all seem to align with the changes you want to make this week.

In order to make the best of this you will need to act on what you know deep inside yourself to be true. There is no need to guess. You will need no suppositions. Simply act on what you know and believe to be true carved, as it were, on your inner tablets of stone.

You do not need to seek guidance or to ask permission to live by the truth.

Fortuna Major is repeated in the 2nd house (Gemini) and continues the theme, this time shading it with a further interpretation. It shows that that you should act on the principles you know. Specifically, this goes beyond just the facts of a situation. It shows that you should follow your own guidelines for how to conduct yourself and your business.

This does not mean that you should be operating on automatic pilot. It means that you should follow your own, inner well-worn paths of doing. It also means that you should behave according to your deepest knowledge of the way things are.

There is no need for further preparation or advice on your current projects. You can simply move forward with confidence based on your own experience and wisdom.

The Pars Solii is in the 5th house (Virgo) and gives a reinforcing slant on the Casting, but with an interesting additional slant. It indicates that there is no need to follow others, even if they have been successful doing what they do. The reason for their success may not in fact be obvious. You have no need of their advice particularly as their path is their own and (and this is particularly interesting) they may not know the real reason for their own results. Following their advice without the full picture could be very misleading. Follow the grain of your own piece of wood.

Take control of your Destiny


The Active Transform this week is Populus (34) in the 6th house (Libra). This takes Flow to a higher interpretation: Keeping to the fundamentals (generally) will be important this week.

You can only achieve the delicate balance of forces in your projects by being sure of yourself, your tools and your capabilities. Confidence comes from within, not by being told what to do.

By following your principles (as mentioned above) you will be doing what is fair and appropriate, not just what gets an easy result in your (or someone else’s) favour.

By following and doing it your way you will avoid dissipating your energies in trying to conform to someone else’s way.

Go with the grain, do it your way and the results are all yours.




There was one Rogue this week: Caput Draconis in the 5th house (Virgo). You will be able to see what wouldn’t work for you be observing what goes wrong for others. This is called learning from the mistakes of others. Knowing that your way is different should increase your confidence that your approach would be more likely to work.

Use your unique approach to your advantage.
