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 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 8 – August 14, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Fine particulate-thickened air
hanging like a shroud of shame
about shoulders, firm and squared off
against the foe imagined, the
ally forgotten and the ones
who are not there

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Slipping away
exciting the skin
in silken ripples
piled about ankles
rolling off the wrists
encouraging a favorable position
for pleasure to sneak in

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Gleaming blue in the dark
shifting shape from cold to hot
cutting rich earth in a long
dragging furrow, catching at corners
etching new patterns of the heart

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Slender pin pierce
houndstooth and broad
thread working through
each side
drawing two into one
striking a nimble stride

Leo & Leo Rising

The first shockwave came as a surprise.
The flesh snapped subtly
like a rubberband.
But the second wave came more a trickle
shock in another guise
to test the marrow of the bones
to test its mineral true

Virgo & Virgo Rising

It’s a shattered tiara
It sits crooked
filtering the light
tarnish betraying its poor origins
its misuse
at rest on the velvet
or teetering atop the head

Libra & Libra Rising

Green leaves fall from tall trees
into open palms
waiting, expectant
holds one leaf aloft
peering through it
to primal cause

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Old and sun scorched
rattling over washboard road
a truck shivers its way
over the dark and hard road
bolts speaking in tongues
their grooves giving way
to the all-consuming night

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Tiny bubbles
grains of glowing orange
clouding the vision
asking for the brave hand
who will wipe them away
mold them into meaningful
crunchy stacks to be eaten

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

As if walking on marbles
or the first time on rollerskates
falling forward, then backwards
aggravated by gravity
but really, without complaint

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

You know how the sun moves
achingly slow across the sky
always bound for the western horizon
but in its last moments
of visibility
slips so quickly
you miss the moment its disc
is sucked into the sea

Pisces & Pisces Rising

A melody pressing through
clenched teeth, parting lips
bound to escape
the tight grip
of inertia,
in a persistent cadence
that can no longer be ignored
winding ‘round like a rope
suspending all hope
