Imagiscopes: Week of August 22, 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 22 – August 28, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Ruffled plastic matte
cupping air
winding around the stem
of your spine
bobbing with the breeze
no threat of popping off
the way you stand there
like that—obstinate

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Tiny brown lumps
of sweet golden nutmeat
only to be pried from
paper thin shells
striated like watermelon
paper rough shells
cracking between heavy
farm hardened hands

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Apples come crackling through leaves
dropping to ground
still green and hard and bitter
no nourishment from the rejecting branch
to be found
even the worms will neglect
their hard husks
for a long, slow ferment

Cancer & Cancer Rising

The air clings to clothing
pressing in with its musty breath
making a bridal veil of the
dust and droplet humidity plume
captured by headlamp beam
that wriggles its way into the cavern
only so deep

Leo & Leo Rising

Sweat pours from clouds
pounding, explosive
to the ground
churning mud
ringlet by tiny ringlet
splashing life into
dry, withered cracks

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Sound piles up
like breakers on a beach
Great scraping wavy forms
wobble into each other
awkward and strong
bouncing off eardrums
with rancor and a desire to
affect another

Libra & Libra Rising

What happens when you
violently grind fruit
through a sieve?
Sweet juices frothing forth
nectar wrought of
destructive force
pulping flesh to death’s
new life

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

It’s hard to know
if we’re pushing
or being pushed
through the narrows,
walls like a second skin
The closer we come to the exit
the deeper we go in

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

It’s silver, a funnel cloud
spiraling down along its low pressure path
a storm of centration
in the only moment which exists:
the present
The becoming is now
for those who can let go of future grasping

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Throaty home of
dry, itchy, burn
holing up in a cave
listening
finally, just listening
(if under duress)
to the pulse of contracting tissue

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Clay spreads away from
the pressing thumb
pleasantly molding
per the will of the beholder
unbeholden to a force
greater than thou

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Sucking thrust of the river
snatches away any semblance of control
tumbling across the waters
wake zipping shut behind the
bouncing vessel
wise to shoals and shallows
she carries you
the devoted one
