Imagiscopes: Week of September 19, 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 19 – September 25, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Translucent and tender edged
butterfly shape, molded and dredged
out of the inky depths
folding open and unable to hold
the weight of fluid too great to
underestimate
It whispered freedom at your bowed head

Literally speaking: Self-imposed ideals of service or devotion are unveiled and seen for what they are, though the way forward may yet be murky and perhaps unpleasant.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Silken windsock folding in the wind
rushing over to offer its condolences
to the west
under a sky sodden with moisture
hiding part of a rainbow
(not terribly well)
the lower bands of light
missing
their resonance
gone
an all-points bulletin issued
and lost in the shuffle of papers

Literally speaking: Some Taureans may feel like a rubber band pulled too tight, as habitual inertia collides with an opportunity for a creative expression of your talents.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Long, dripping teardrop shape of vine
aubergine luster with a crown
of green
pulling heartstrings to open the line
of communication
tumbling words out upon image
casting aside the desire to scrimmage
the line that invisibly separates
thou from that

Literally speaking: A flash flood of feelings is forecast for this week, and it’s probably a good idea to not try to ford that creek until you’ve had enough time to sort out what they mean, so you won’t be swept away in the current. Communication might be a bit of a challenge all on its own!

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Softly padding, deliberate feline
agile movement through leaf litter
thickly crackling, placed just so
plants releasing foliage spent
nothing wasted, nothing bent
without reason of movement
slow curves, not lazy this power
but steady and patient

Literally speaking: Look to your dreams this week for guidance on making any critical decisions, or to nourish a commitment to serving your highest good. Some yummy release is building, but it will take tolerance of confusion and ambiguity to cooperate with its happening.

Leo & Leo Rising

Golden amber eye
wings through the shadows
discerning the shapes of others
who wait and pace and shred the ground
in their turn, making of silence a rustling sound
magnetizing retreat and advance
pirouettes in a grand autumnal dance

Literally speaking: You may be a paid a visit by the usual suspects who surround your hopes and expectations for the future, spurring rebellion and inspiration, preparing you for a deeper dive into the creative inferno.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Slick belly scaled and sleek
slithers over river and under branch
collecting dewdrops on top of rounded
mouth turning into the bend, the hook
hanging round to nest, to see what might there be

Literally speaking: A self-image of invulnerability could be tested for seaworthiness this week.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Seeping
pouring through
porous bedrock
boiling up
out of limestone sheath
of earth
a rhyme of bubbles
bursting in time
to the rhythm of your
heart
beating wildly
in the forest afar

Literally speaking: Expect a request from some area of your life to align your words and deeds with your personal philosophy or ideals; it may feel a little edgy, but that’s a signal of growth.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

One organ spanning the globe
stretched to the perfect size
snug, fitting, flexing, glowing
ripples, firm and springing back from the touch
layer over the tough, stringy sinew inside
potentiated with such power
impossible to truly hide

Literally speaking: What are you hiding in the basement, Scorpio? Will you open up and let it out, or try to keep the trap door shut tight? You want to at least peek in there? Maybe you’ll even see through some outgrown ideas of safety in the process.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Blood squeezes the heart
spiraling through vein and capillary
shaking your chest with its reality
cold rush of neurochemical excitement
lifts your knees high, carrying calf and ankle and foot
tingling to the skies
moving forward
moving forward
at a gentle lope
towards destiny’s hope

Literally speaking: The search for personal integrity is in the spotlight this week. While you work towards aligning your actions with your philosophies, don’t forget that the sum of your life did not begin with your own calculations but started long before birth.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

It won’t fit through this sieve
all the pressure
jamming and fussing
amassing conical shape
compacted and unhappy
pushing back without success

Literally speaking: What community do you serve, Capricorn? Perhaps this week will give you a chance to answer or at least puzzle over this question.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Tiny firelight pricking a ring
together, holding this precious bond
in its impermanence, flickering
in and out of existence
so quickly the eye misses the intervals
and like magick strings it all together
into one coherent whole

Literally speaking: You might have to open up about a vulnerable topic, giving you a chance to find out who your friends really are. Note: Don’t take that necessarily as discovering “who is with me and who is not” but maybe finding out more about WHO they really are.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Long green bodies shimmering
mottled by light above and by silver below
tail slapping river bed again
the impact spreading gravel
she builds her redd
eyes wide with instinct
a muscular determination

Literally speaking: You’ll find support if you examine the sources of your emotional well-being, particularly as it relates to your home and your notion of belonging to family or community, should you meet with challenges around how your professional or career identity is received by others.
