Shift In Perspective

Carcer + Carcer → Populus (14)
Astrogem Casting for week commencing 19th November 2023

We have made four attempts to Touch the Hair of the Goddess—so far without success—though we did meet some interesting, if sodden, people on one of our outings. We persevere.


Carcer in the 2nd house (Sagittarius) gives rise to a question: Is it still slow in coming? Are you still looking for the link or the breakthrough from your efforts to get to the promised results? In this opposition aspect there is a clear indication that the answer lies in the question…

Interestingly, your feelings about what you are seeking seem to be getting in the way of you getting it, too. It seems that you are trying a good and sound way to make progress. But perhaps you feel in some kind of plateau or that you are going round in a circle. It is natural to feel frustrated when you are putting in a lot of work with seemingly little to show for it.

Carcer in the 8th house (Gemini) continues the theme of reflection from last week’s Casting. It seems that what is right and good for you is seemingly not the answer for the outside world. In other words, just because something seems right and obvious to you for some reason it might not be working in the field / real life.

The answer will lie in how you look at or phrase the problem.

The Pars Saturnii is in the 7th house (Taurus). This indicates that the same principle of reflection will apply in your interactions with others who are involved in the issue. The Pars indicates that however they are involved, reverse it: If they are holding you back, find out what you can learn from them. If they are seemingly being helpful, set their help aside. It may be that their good intentions are inadvertently holding you back, irrelevant or misguided.

If you are trying to include others—don’t. If you haven’t included them—do. It’s all about opposites being contained and reflected in the approach you are taking.

Take control of your Destiny


The Active Transform is Populus (14) back in the 2nd house (Sagittarius). The essence of this reflection is to see how you can ask the same question but in a different way. (Reflection is always the same but somehow different.)

Use a slight change in wording when speaking or thinking about the issue… A shift from ‘you’ to ‘them’ or from ‘them’ to ‘you’; change from ‘one’ to ‘all’, or vice versa.

A shift in perspective is like having a second head working on the problem.

In this way, what was external can come in. What was bottled up can then flow outwards.
