Imagiscopes: Week of May 9, 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 May 9 – May 15, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

The fountainhead stammers.
Glacial seeps
of milky white
speak of flowing
downslope
coating greengrass
a shining shag carpet
damp under feet

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Who knows the
limits of the heart’s
knowing?
Vast impenetrable distance
clothes us in kinship
seams gathered together
and threaded by trust
that you, too, are loved

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Sunlight gets caught
in a long, hollow mirror
piercing bright
glare sent up like
an emergency flare
signaling the plane operator
soaring unawares
in a cloudless blue sky

Cancer & Cancer Rising

What thick skin
is this
sprouting jewels from every pore
emeralds and rubies and
diamonds and more
a harder surface never was
yet so flexible
translating to tongue
ineluctable
radiance with rageful promise
of new speech yet to come

Leo & Leo Rising

Tower painted in
black and white
stands forlorn against
colorless sky
signals blinking
on and off
coursing through
the body politic
simplistic
good guy and bad guy
both
stealing away daily bread
sabotaging life

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Blessed Virgin, how you weep
crumpled beside your every sheath
gathered from fields of golden treasure
Gently brush the tears from your eyes
that you may recognize
all which cannot be measured
which is otherwise disguised

Compass Rose

Libra & Libra Rising

Gliding by light
over tree and over bush
honing in on
giving you a push
striking the retina
a bit shocking at first
waves pile on waves
and resolve in silky smooth strokes

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Beacon up ahead
mind the gap!
between heart and head
small voice inside
glowing soft red
with risk of drowning
in the roar and the rush
of adrenaline—
truth percolates clear out
of the temptation to fear

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Muscles unclench
resting on sturdy raft
firm and
inviting to relax
all this tense skin
and float downstream
awhile
no more flapping
beating against the tide
just trusting the currents of desire

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Rust colored ribbon
thinly waving in the water
lofting soft-bodied creature
to the surface of the lake
to quickly gulp up air
between the shadows
and nourish the descent
back to the bottom

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Honeyed tones
shiver through flesh
a rush of windy music
discordant yet fresh
giving pause, making wonder
just what might be next

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Nourishment veins
through the tiniest
fan of ruffled leaf
its long, tender lines
persistent in green
through millions of years
of youth on the gingko tree
so steady and rooted
