Imagiscopes: Week of July 25, 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 25 – July 31, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Dropping down to go up
snug in its sheath
a silver piston drives forward
even as we sleep
this bouncing rod of energy
is a precarious bequeath

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Marshmallow gooey billows
spongy and insincere
Did I really put that in my mouth?
How shall I get it out?
But no turning around here
Nothing to do but ride it out

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Soft fleshy rounding
of air deeply inhaled
and a parting of the pearled gates
sends forth a gust
scattering tiny tufts
of parasol seed
to land where they must

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Loosely woven fabric
gauzy and hazy
comes to rest on the divan
spreading itself gracefully
as color on a canvas
might paint a scene serene

Leo & Leo Rising

Soft vegetal curve
of petal tracing the
food of the sun
chasing a certain trajectory
laid out by the shape
of the landscape it inhabits
needing bow to no one

Virgo & Virgo Rising

A pouty-mouthed singer struts
across the stage of our heart
shouting in admonishment
“You can’t always get what you want”
and we fold the knitted cloth
pilled with time’s worry
primly in our laps
and cast aside fate

 

Libra & Libra Rising

A sinking feeling turned to stone
in the stomach
warns against wearing pain
like some plagued vestment
A badge of identification or
a homing signal
that can only lead astray

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Is it torsion in the intestines
or a call to guts and glory?
An unfamiliar tweak in the limbic system
comes calling at your door
promising to pull more than
just waste from resentment

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Flat cavern of diamond shape
fluttering folds circulate
around its rosy perimeter
desirous of a seeker brave enough
to penetrate
its velvety interior

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Natural bevel ending on all corners
solid structure of six sides
bears mineral consciousness
a quartz lucidity
precipitate of Earth’s crust

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Skin diving
drifters over coral reef
propellers to sandy bottom of the sea
peering laden with preparation
but unprepared for that which is seen
quickly running out of air
rushing against lungs bursting
to breech the tension of the surface
that holds them there

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Balanced on a thin metal edge
slicing through ice
liquid grace moves in steady
strokes towards freedom’s device
a means of unseeing
or re-throwing the dice
