Imagiscopes: Week of August 29, 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.

A note about this week’s weather

On Tuesday, August 30, Mercury will begin to retrace his/her path through Virgo, in retrograde motion. To align with this flow, you might re-read your personal journals or revisit other forms of personal development work (art, music, somatic memories, etc) and look for connecting patterns through time; invoke the power of Virgo to bring organization to your personal development approach; think through the details (or think through your particular relationship to details); and clear the clutter.

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of August 29 – September 4, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Crystal, solid, clear, hard
wakened with the sound
of struck fragility
moaning through the room

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Granite glows underfire
popping conversion of carbon to gas
making the sizzling song of the untamed
element grow louder, crowding ears
with bad advice, hesitance and hellion fear

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Wood stabbing water and a
long pull sending a procession of eddies
swirling against tensed muscles
Each pull through the water grows more frantic
And strange to witness as if from afar,
the handle slip from grip and slide into
the water, carrying the paddle away
on a swift current

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Feet striped by waves of light
standing knee-deep, hesitant to go further
the obvious contrast between flesh submerged
and flesh remaining separate, atmospheric
heightened by the tickle of water tension
rolling up and down the knees
How thick the pull to continue,
tugging on some great rope within you
wind nudging and sighing and riffling through

Leo & Leo Rising

It’s stealth
the way the whole world spins around
yet it seems like you are doing the moving
Just this tiny strip of flesh moving
across the landscape of meaning
negotiating boulders of trust
and talus slopes of hope
towards some unknown destination
haltingly is the way the world spins around
ginger, each footfall
checkered, each past
inscrutable, each present

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Invisible motion
reveals itself in stalks that fall
graceful to ground
nothing willing them down
nothing straining to move
great arc of compassion
smoothing the way

Libra & Libra Rising

Drift of lavender mist
sweet pungency in the nostril
recalls to memory that
precious jewel called life
stunning to remember
that breath is not guaranteed
but a gift of each moment

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

The swamp alive
sucks around shoes
firm hold of the seething mud
threatening to pull them off
Still you wade deeper
into the soft reach
water spilling over top of feet
drenching soles and setting teeth
on edge the moment you realize
that black and white aren’t what they seem

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Paradise of the heart
to be found in the
labyrinth of the world
footsteps winding to
unbearable tightness
in service of opening the
chest of infinite treasure
no matter how out of bounds
it seems – the path interconnected
can always lead to home

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Silken tresses roll along taut shoulders
erect and poised to carry the load
Dampened with sweat, royalty in burlap sack
bends harsh, at odd angles with
the hillside – laboring to get up
and unaware why this effort
this particular hill, this lifetime
rising like waves of heat
distorting the distance

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Whirling along, clad in leather stitched together
sailing at high speed
drawing closer, the air makes a mean noise
parting along its trajectory
until it connects with a mighty crack
and recoil of the bat
sending it flying back at
the force that originally launched it

Pisces & Pisces Rising

It’s frozen
the crowbar is wedged in
but still, it won’t budge
Prising this thing apart with brute force
not an option?
Search about for the right lubricant
to bring that which is fused together
into its separate parts
to reunite the old bleeding heart
with its owner
