You probably either straightened up your casting plane, or started curving it the other way.

One can throw a tailing loop without hooking one's line if your casting plane is curved so that the line nearer the rod tip is out of the way as the hook is moving forward.

The combination is a recipe for pretty horrible accuracy (unless you're doing it intentionally, and practice it, ala the "Belgian Cast"), but it will prevent hooking one's line on the forward cast.
