Imagiscopes: Week of July 4, 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. It is an attempt to invite your thinking mind to relax, and your imagination to step forward and play. It may be helpful to not try to “figure it out,” but rather to sit with the mood imagiscopes evoke and see what imagery or fantasy of your own might emerge in response. Perhaps they will spark a memory, a feeling, or a more intuitive recognition of the planetary powers at play in your life this week.

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 July 4 – July 10, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

What started with small tinder
spreads its warmth through chest
through breast
until arms of flame
embraced your face shaping
fierce beast from gray softness

Taurus & Taurus Rising

All in one rush
a great cascade from above
shocking cold and clear
gathering at your feet in mud
made of quartz, refracting sunlight
broken mineral, once was mountaintop

Gemini & Gemini Rising

The fissure in the rock
did not compromise it.
Steady, it balanced on top of the others
you had stacked
with the precision of a patient person
Each one pulled from the mines
of your heart and left there to do
what it does best:
trust gravity’s heft.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Twisting tight and constricted
hardened tissues wound so taut
The burdensome bud
before bursting into blossom
A concentration of energy
meant to unfold in silken stars
of quiet repose

Leo & Leo Rising

Tail twitching
eye trained on target
following every move
to send sinews into action
lightning response
to the movement of quarry
in the thicket of inaction

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Out of a murky haze
comes tippy-toe up behind you
a tap on the shoulder from the invisible
Because turning around
there’s no one behind you
But it got your attention, didn’t it?
A great victory when just turning around
for a second look
is half the battle

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Those places on the body
invisible to the self without
a mirror
are cracking open now
exposing all the tender
raw flesh to atmosphere
drawing out old poisons
Decomposition is the medicine

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Old discolored flesh
sign of old wound
opening up fresh
scar tissue didn’t quite cover it
what is ungrieved
gives  no rest

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

A pinpoint of light
extended to streak
across the sky
burned up in an instant
alight with transcendence

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

There was once an old man
who tried to stop the sun rising.
He pushed it back down below the horizon.
Stepped on it when it tried to rise again
grumbling, struggling, sprouting white hairs
in vain illusion of gaining a few hours’ sleep

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Blonde tones on tan brown
a block of wood made fuzzy
floating on tides
rubbed by salt and sand and sea
then deposited high and dry
ashore a foreign isle
although born from the land
it longs to again float free

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Soft, round mouth
in an “O” shape
gaping and grasping for breath
from an element which
cannot provide it
while slight, slim body
flails against the ground
awkwardly flopping away from certain death
