Imagiscopes: Week of September 12, 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 12 – September 18, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

She pressed the nib firmly into the tight
white bonded fibers
her hand drawn out by the long
penstrokes, thinner then thicker
winding in loops, downslopes
flowing permanent stain talking
out loud to the solid earth elements
that birthed them

Literally speaking: Fierce advocacy tears into the sacred wound, exposing a limitation which asks to be reconceptualized or reimagined.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Square cut lustrous brown
honeyed gold boiling up
catalyzed by sunlight striking
the finger upon which this gem
rests, cast in solid gold setting
never to tarnish or to fade

Literally speaking: Something precious is being torn away or torn open, and while Nietzsche’s proclamation “All pain is birth pain” may not feel terribly compelling in the moment, it will be worthwhile to take tender care of whatever is being birthed at this time.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Whirling dervish burnished gold discs
spinning with light reflected
in the grooved tongues of
what must be a plated chalice
talking with a divisive purpose

Literally speaking: A severance cracks the secret opening of the thin line dividing pleasure and pain.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

What is it like to scuttle?
Limbs pattering in sand that
melts underfoot, tiny imperceptible foot
pounding and churning, rapid fire
Hairs wafting with movement
both inwardly propelled
outwardly nudged, scuttling
in the waves of samsara

Literally speaking: Vital energy pouring towards the reorganization of guiding principles, with a fresh attitude towards protecting what is vulnerable.

Leo & Leo Rising

Slender shaft, hard and smooth
dripping into a point
that can grab, catch, hold fast
piercing through, clenching tight to tear
with delicate precision and caring
pounds of pressure, gripping
shepherd tending the fields of wisdom

Literally speaking: It’s not necessary to put lipstick on a pig to make reality more palatable; rather, being vulnerable to the messiness of life is the way to joyful understanding.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Silvershine corralling all those feelings
making a protective nest of precious metals
forged in a fire of ancestral desire
an unclear inheritance of apparent
disturbance, lifting veil after veil
from the impatient body

Literally speaking: Attending to the anger or disturbance stirring within the depths can help draw poisons out of your relational matrices.

Libra & Libra Rising

Her hand loosed the tension
and all splayed out
the bundle of bamboo sticks
spread silken in tenuous relationship
with one another
pointing in every direction yet connected
by threads of gravity

Literally speaking: Electric, fresh, exciting—and what the hell is that stale air that keeps trying to flush through? Here comes a chance to break up those stale thoughts and be released from a limiting sense of duty.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

“I thought shocks were supposed to move
skyward and earthward,” she said
kicking at nothing particular
with a weather-beaten boot
These disobediently twisted, as if in a dream
defying the natural order of things
Sober observation coupled with strokes
of discomfort in the stomach
turned her head from side to side
much like the shock absorbers
operating by their own rules

Literally speaking: Pushing your way towards accepting how your style of self-expression or assertion conflicts with a group you identify with.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Sepal seams split
petals fall open
like bread rising
in the oven
pistil and stamen proudly moving
towards their place in the sun
lush and inviting the world
to happen to them

Literally speaking: Persistent focus and loving dedication to putting forward your very best to the world can convert the maelstrom of faults—real and imagined—self-doubts, misgivings and second guesses into the energy necessary for success on your own terms.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Soft fluid-filled sacs spill
out of nowhere
suspended in the void
like bunches of clear
champagne grapes
or caviar
They reach their terminus
and could hang there forever

Literally speaking: Self-sabotage around communication highlights the need to focus on how your thoughts, words and deeds contribute to misunderstanding or point to patterns of self-alienation.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Hands, wrinkled and creased
pass like a shadow over your face
turning the furrow into fertile field
sowing seeds to sink their roots
into some future rain clad soil

Literally speaking: You may want to lead the group out of the scarcity mindset, but how hindered are you by your own fears of lack?

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Copper pots click
like heels against a ballroom floor
chocolate melted on marble
wiped up with chamois
the dance calls for one foot raised
one foot firmly planted
to move with the partner
whose sweetness will not remain

Literally speaking: If you find your public image challenged this week, know that it could be a turning point (or a learning point) in how you attend to matters of self-esteem.
