Imagiscopes: Week of July 11, 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 11 – July 17, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

The barrier separating sweetwater from salt
prepares to crack open, and the wait is long
sitting in low vessel, facing backwards
in the narrow vault of the lock
unable to prime paddle or muscle
and resist the drift
out to sea

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Popping, writhing, twisting
turned to
waving, spiraling, flowing
movement
Superficial
turned to
foundational
Route of the woolly bear’s undoing

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Hard
reinforced
sharp enough to shear sheep clean
this blade
bleeds tears
of red
pleading
use with care

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Every wave builds to crest
then falls to trough
Piling up one
behind the other
crushing the form preceding
into inexorable curl
that crashes flat again
Almost without feeling
though not without pain.

Leo & Leo Rising

Long, gunmetal gray
solid and smithed
with fine hooks winding
all around its
circumference
in carefully
considered array
perfect for piercing tender flesh
But what is this thing for, anyway?
It’s attached to no staff
just hanging there in midair
imposing on its possessor
a kind of possession state

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Finding the most efficient shape
to give form to new growth
will not suffice to break open
topsoil and spread to receive
the light
The ground is tight
packed with pounds of rain
calling for a new strain
of sturdy stem to find the nutrient base

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Spewing sparks skyward
along an invisible electric current
the ice plant reaches for
a canopy of blue
wiggling its way out of the glue
of the ground

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Koi cuts water
with its fin
head bumping the surface
gently rippling reflection
sending clouds spinning
in every direction

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Tiny teeth catch in sprockets
setting oval shapes in motion
elliptical crawl across the floor
smooth though not frictionless
grinding forward on gears

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

They let down their locks of hair
all falling open to the air and
loosed to the elements
do what they care
with these soft antennae

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Listen to the crackle
of seed against gourd
heartbeat against flesh
falling thick and fast now
clattering out your hour

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Drifting layers
shifting spaces
trading places
for the thin to marshall the thick
governing the movement of the great
as if harnessed to the moon
