Imagiscopes: Week of April 17, 2016

Imagiscopes are based on sun sign astrology, popularly known as “the horoscope” for each sign that is found in many daily, weekly and monthly publications.  Like the horoscope, the imagiscope is based on the astrological transits for the week ahead, customized for each Sun sign. Find your Sun sign below to read your image for the coming week!

Imagiscopes are offered as a window into the living imagination, the imaginal realm which gives birth to all form and structure. Rather than offering a literal interpretation or story about the dynamics you may experience during the week, imagiscopes offer an invitation into an experience of those dynamics. Perhaps they will spark a memory, a feeling, or a more intuitive recognition of the planetary powers at play in your life this week. It may be helpful to not try to “figure it out,” but rather to sit with the mood it evokes and see what imagery or fantasy of your own might emerge in response.

To accurately determine your Sun sign, visit astro.com or a similar site which will allow you to cast your own natal chart. You will need the date, place and time of your birth. Those who are born from the 19th – 22nd of a given month may be one of two different signs. If you are casting your chart, also check out your rising sign if you don’t already know it. Images apply to both your Sun sign and the rising sign (Ascendant) of your natal chart, but note that the rising sign is only accurate if you have your correct time of birth.

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of April 17 – April 23, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Eyes drifting inattentive
catching sight of a
writhing, twisting
pressing against the
tightest of taut skin

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Mercilessly the sun chases
a beast of burden
fused to the ground
as if racing this
immoveable object
to complete burnout

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Swirling dark waters
relentlessly churning
sucking flow downward
like a renegade propeller
making motion with no clear direction

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Syncopated rhythm
wobbles in time
with the breaking open cask
of fetid, old wine
since turned to water
and not missing a beat more
casts it over the shoulder
defeating a persistent evil eye

Leo & Leo Rising

Set to swaying
rhythmic playing
turning round a narrow hoop
rocking itself in and out of rut
desire gathering in the thighs
straining to break through

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Silver shock of scale and fin
startled, quickly darting beneath rock
to burrow itself in familiar shadow
unaware of the lamprey eel
silently waiting within

Libra & Libra Rising

Splintered wood leans in shards
fraying from pole to pole
drifting apart as if
toward the other
misconnection tearing the heart

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Steam off jettisons of boiling
hot water stabbing at the sky
uncertain intervals of roaring fate
that emanate from the bowels of Earth
compelling to trespass or to travel

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Curls of shaven wood spiral, hot and
responsive to the pressure
wrought by heavyset hands
bearing down upon a barrel
and piercing its head
the warm aroma of oaken wine
soaking the air

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Purpling skies cough up black clouds
making shelter for a flicking tongue
of energy whipping
rippling underground
its rhythmic thrum more felt than heard

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Finally arrived
the early bird hoists
itself off the earth
with a rough and tumble
clambering for footing
every two steps backward
equaling forward motion

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Cold, wakening water
over smooth fountain skin
a shapely silken flow
into the lap of waiting
raw rock, jagged, heaped below
