The Mother Of Invention


Via + Fortuna Major → Fortuna Minor (1234)
Astrogem Casting for week commencing 13th August 2023

Via in the 3rd house (Libra) would normally indicate a lot of very favourable opportunities opening up for you. But given the square aspect in the Casting there is likely to be more of a tendency for this placement to produce more indecision as to the best way forward. There are likely to be lots of choices but perhaps none of them are very clear.

It may also indicate that the options are not clear because the situation itself is fluid and changing and that you’re having to make a choice with imperfect or varying knowledge—trying to hit a set of moving targets.

The Pars Luna is in the 10th house (Taurus)—in a somewhat surprising role—seems to come to the rescue here. The indication is that a figure in authority will be able to you assist you in one of two ways.

Either they could be a source of comfort, advice and emotional stability in pointing out the best way forward, or (bizarrely) that they are so completely wrong or too authoritarian that you completely push back and rebel against their point of view, thereby making your choices that much more clear as to the best way forward for you.

Either their help or their ‘anti-help’ could therefore prove useful.

Fortuna Major in the 6th house (Capricorn) indicates that taking on new areas of responsibility with regard to work could be a natural consequence of your actions.

You may, however, be trying to do too much for others and end up wearing yourself thin. If you have made or been forced into a commitment to them you are likely to find that this will mean that you are in for a long haul.

Take control of your Destiny


The Active Transform this week is Fortuna Minor (1234) in the 9th house (Aries). As both of the parent geomes are powerful (the new Moon and the full Sun), their union will put the ‘active’ in ‘Active Transform’. So while Flow may seem to require a lot of effort, the rewards you gain will be proportionally high.

In other words, those new opportunities will open to the degree that you can create new solutions and ways forward for yourself.

All this change is good for creating new ideas and new ways of doing things.

After all, necessity is the mother of invention.
