Imagiscopes: Week of September 5, 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 September 5 – September 11, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Round and small and grabbed by gravity
a clatter radiating across the floor
beading the air with crisp sounds like firecrackers
in the distance or the movement of insects en masse
wisping through tall stands of grass beneath
leaves shriveling dry on trees

Literally speaking: This week may find passion boiling over and at odds with the direction of your energy, while your habitual mind evades all attempts at understanding the disconnection.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

It’s all ribbons
Wound tightly around a bright box
fingers can’t force their way
through the tangle of silk and satin
festoons and securements
Tugging at this one, and then at that
trying to find the way in
to whatever is inside

Literally speaking: Here comes a sweet sigh of relief, sparkling like a precious jewel – but do you warily approach this gift? What would it be like if you openly welcomed in something good without tensely waiting for the other shoe to drop?

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Short and fleshy-necked
fur flecked with sweat
swiveling ears sway with a head erect
poised to listen to the wind
You lean over, reins in hand
clutching the hobby horse between thighs
starting the walk towards uncertain skies

Literally speaking: Playfulness tugs at your heart, but the seriousness of life insists on taking you by the hand this week.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Every joint of every finger
pulsates with life
Palm spreads wide, delicate hands
brushing at the surface of a velvet lake
hanging in the doorway that is
cracked wide, too wide to prevent
the change from happening
again

Literally speaking: A crack appears in the code around putting others always before oneself.

Leo & Leo Rising

Eyelids puckering in the blasting sand
red globes of vision scratch around inside them
and limbs uncoil from their taut resting places
reaching out through the veil of maya
feeling for the shape of the truth
vase-like, hollow, flowering voluminous

Literally speaking: Values take shape around a creative break with friends, old and new – be that a breakup or major change, or a breakthrough.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Splashes of pastel colors
paint a puzzle funnel somewhat garish
gurgling you down and through and around
so quickly your stomach cannot catch up to you
it’s almost embarrassing
the way we stand at the precipice
life gushing by and part of us
left behind

Literally speaking: Harvesting the strict limitations of abundance.

Libra & Libra Rising

Smooth oval skidding
over river skin
comes clattering against
the white and gray teeth
combing over the other shore
holding boredom at bay

Literally speaking: The unveiling of a secret that you’ve kept from yourself.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Strong winds carry a helium-filled hollow
up and up, giving chase to a mob of others
clogged up under a cerulean circus tent of sky
that stretches overhead in a backbend
reaching out beyond the grain-growing country

Literally speaking: Demands on your integrity may cause you to break ranks.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Floodwaters spread through the chest
in rising heat steaming the flesh
that clings to a white silver filigree
skeleton of love, wires twisted carefully
to carry the nervous connections

Literally speaking: An opportunity arises to work out any conflict between what you are pursuing, and what is pursuing you.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Something dislodged from the sky
it came in peels, like lemon rinds
or skins of orange, loopy from the knives
that sheared the spherical bodies
and floated down toward the ground
obeying gravity but taking it ever so lightly

Literally speaking: A philosophical conviction reconsidered brings a step forward in one’s career or calling or way of belonging and contributing to this world.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Bold white canvas, carrying the weight of the wind
on its broad shoulders, shuddering
down the backsides of swells
smacking bottom and rising sharply up
an interminable distance
under the watch of
small, gleeful eyes tracking the smashing tides
against the sides of the bathtub

Literally speaking: There might be a few feisty scenes this week, amongst acquaintances or intimates, that give cause for a change of heart or at least a different point of view.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Notes flow from fingers pulling
strings, pulling reverberations into form
capturing the vibration set in motion
with the beginning of the last ending
ending upon ending, eon after eon
like sediment flushed from its secret place

Literally speaking: Receiving the rich rewards of one’s inheritance pulls adversarial or otherwise challenging relationship dynamics to the forefront.

    I protest against speaking literally, even though I know it goes against the current of our “racing” times 🙂

    • Thank you for your protest, Marcelo! 🙂 I am definitely conflicted about writing a literal version, but…I’m hoping to lure more people into using other ways of knowing, assuming they’d read the more poetic (and definitely more possibility-laden) rendering.
