Ready, Set, Go

Via + Tristitia → Caput Draconis (1234)
Astrogem Casting for week commencing 7th August 2022

I wish everyone reading this a very happy Lughnasadh—the festival of first fruits and the start of the harvest season.


Via in the 5th house (Scorpio) shows that, as foreshadowed from the Castings for the last couple of weeks, matters are reaching a pinpoint of readiness. The machine is oiled and ready and all that’s needed now is for you to turn the key, press the button or otherwise fire the starting pistol.

You seem to have brought matters successfully to this point. It is the ending of one stage and the start of the next—and bigger—stage.

There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of overlap: there’s not much time to make the shift between the stages, but in fact there doesn’t need to be if you are ready to go. In other words, just do it. Go!

Tristitia in the 1st house (Cancer) indicates that the change, when it comes, comes quickly. In some sense it may feel unexpected, but that is only because you are in the process of changing and things are moving. It is just a different feeling from thinking about it and planning the change. Keep a firm hand on the tiller of your boat. Be secure in your mind and all will be well.

Take control of your Destiny


The Active Transform this week is Caput Draconis (1234) in the 9th house (Pisces). This indicates that immediately after the change the situation and circumstances have to settle down into a new pattern. This period may seem a little uncertain, but just let the dust settle a little first.

You know that a situation is new because things are different and you are unaccustomed to them.

Do not be hasty and don’t let your imagination run away with you.

Stay calm and steady and let matters settle into their new course.

The Pars Luna is in the 5th house (Scorpio) this week and this placement was a little challenging to interpret in the light of the specific Flow in the Casting. It suggests some kind difficulty but this is in the very same house as the very positive new change indicated above.

This suggests that you should not be either too drastic in your new actions and circumstances nor that you are too (and unnecessarily) generous. Be fair. Just give and get what is your due, no more, no less.

Note: Given the unusual placement of the Pars there is another possible interpretation. It is more likely for those who are not as deeply in Flow. This will not therefore apply to everyone, but for a few who it does apply to it is likely to hit home: Events this week may seem to ‘run backwards’. That is, there will appear to be a new start, then there will be some sudden or unexpected shift in circumstances followed by the need to clear away some unfinished business before things can proceed forward on track again.
