Imagiscopes: Week of August 1, 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 August 1 – August 7, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

It smolders
Crusted over black
and glowering
(not glowing)
livid orange red
molten mineral
silicate and resolute

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Twinges in the gums
blurs the line between
pleasure and pain
to twist it free from its root
unseat it from its setting
sends sharp signals
skittering through the nervous system

Gemini & Gemini Rising

How a skeleton hangs
from the graceful curve of collarbone
fingers trace that hillside
and valley sculpted by the
reach of arms
searching for forbidden fruit
in the sticky sweet of summertime

Cancer & Cancer Rising

This nose keeps drizzling
as if some small stone
had lodged in the nasal passage
and refused to budge
resisting every honk, snort and sniffle

Leo & Leo Rising

wiry, thin strips aglow
and stacked three tall
set the course, high
skyward
drawing the senses low,
downward
cloud spelunking

Virgo & Virgo Rising

why does the madrone tree
twist its branches
into spiral shapes
as it stabilizes slopes
holding whole hillsides together
with its slow and steady growth

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Half submerged
ponderous shell pokes
out of the water
tiny legs and feet hidden
working the flow
with head down below

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Arrows smoothly course past numbers
on a small dial
behind crystal
the horizon turning over on its side
with each passing hour
day yielding to night
night dispelled by daylight
How quickly dreams do
run dry

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

There’s this spinning wheel,
I know it!
That gathers up all the rocks
that I throw it
whipping them shapely and comely
making a brilliant design
a bowl from pebbles of all size

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Become the lowing of the toad
royalty of all
who countenance its call
Become the thrill of water
spilling over the land
saturating skin with electrifying wisdom

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

A pleated disc
festooned
in blue?
in red? or white?
In what reward
do you disguise your true honor?
Hanging on so tight
to the peg on the wall
so frightened it may fall

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Facing the sun the day long
hot rocks of mother origin
offer comfort
to the sore
the tired and the wretched
feet walking so far, so far
to see the sun set on home’s shores
