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 26 – October 2, 2016
Aries & Aries Rising
rolling up to the sky
in puffs of smoke
ringing a cinder cone in gray
shrugging off the loose what may
Literally speaking: Is there a partnership (or two?) hampering your career or your calling? Taking responsibility for your role in that dynamic will go a long way towards transforming your attitude towards achieving your goals.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
She climbed up the hot rock
porous as pumice
and squatted like a decrepit lizard
waiting for its skin to shed
bubbles of air and dread liquid
predicting the next shift
Literally speaking: It’s a good use of the September 30 New Moon to take some time to examine your philosophies and beliefs around your day to day rituals and routines, as well as your philosophies around nutrition, and reflect on how these contribute to or undermine your overall well-being. What changes can you make to support where you are right now, and who you have become?
Gemini & Gemini Rising
Joints pop in time
a skeleton of movement
trying to find rhyme
in a symmetrical season
Literally speaking: Creative disputes may have more inner origins than roots in the external world. Look closely to determine who or what is holding you back from shining in your particular way.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
Weight curving in gravity’s insistence
on the downward tilt of milk-filled
breasts holding the liquid
of life so gently, impressed with
the travail of birth and its
promise of death giving life
such abundance of forgiveness
Literally speaking: Take the opportunity to embrace new ways of approaching old patterns around feelings of guilt, obligation and resentment. Stay centered, grounded and focused on your own needs should your environment respond adversely to your new direction.
Leo & Leo Rising
Jagging into fingertips
bumps of phosphorescent green
tickling each ridge of fingerprint
with jolting adrenaline
draining attention with all its excitement
Literally speaking: Beware of getting sucked into power struggles arising with co-workers or peers, by looking for the roots of conflict within you. If you can recognize and sidestep your own fears and insecurities, you could attain to new levels of cooperation and inclusion.
Virgo & Virgo Rising
Recoil on every downstroke
sibilant the strings of dulcimer
pounded by hammer and joined
with spirit of the one who knows
no purity, no defilement
ringing out with the freedom
of the unrecognized
Literally speaking: You may need to move in new directions around questions of financial or material security, and the maintenance of your possessions. A creative—rather than reactive—response will be more rewarding.
Libra & Libra Rising
You’re tracking it
drifting through space
it’s small and particulate
and shifting so slightly
catching the light
a spark arises and
does a thing sparkle
if no being ever sees it?
Literally speaking: Increased activities in and attention to home life could solidify or initiate an expanded awareness of your self-image.
Scorpio & Scorpio Rising
White chalk scoring the
forehead that thuds
sliding down the cliff
rubble below dribbled
with blood once beading
your brow now heaped
with the leavings of storms
sweeping away everything unsecured
Literally speaking: Settling the score with old enemies may be on your mind, but try to take a step back to see the larger picture and contemplate what part of humanity you share with them. A more graceful approach might be possible and you just might avoid some form of self-sabotage.
Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising
Transmitting a full spectrum frequency
oscillations dislodging chinks from dusty
caverns, opening and showing seams of
doubt and misgiving
shouts of protest and remorse
making distant the echoes of
childhood’s poverty dream
a receding if resplendent memory
Literally speaking: Turning energies towards matters of financial and material security outwardly collides with hopes and aspirations for the future, while secretly, the plan is all unfolding as it should.
Capricorn & Capricorn Rising
Wiping the bathroom mirror
moisture wicking across the glass
left by the wadded terry cloth
wet and not too absorbent
steam collects again
defying each swipe and
Literally speaking: Restless ambition may try your patience with all which is inhibiting the gift you wish to give to society, aka career goals (and even if you think it’s not career goals which are causing your agitation—look closely). What might it be like to relax a bit and just enjoy being carried by greater forces—what might more cooperation and less fighting-to-do-it-all look like?
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
Anatomy of a feather
points to barbs, barbules, hooklets
strength enough to push against the wind
and soar the fat skies stretching out
in infinite horizon, defeating enclosure
pushing and pushing to sail ever higher
Literally speaking: It’s a good week to connect your body to your philosophies, by letting physical exertion guide you to new insights and greater understanding of society and what sort of (good) trouble you’d like to make in it.
Pisces & Pisces Rising
Tops of ears tingle
string plucked is single
wound tight sparking light
in closed recesses with
impurities pooling, droning
Literally speaking: Adding your vigor and drive to a movement or group that is involved in transformation could strike at some vulnerabilities which could be successfully healed, if you apply as much bravery to loving and accepting what you discover about yourself through the process.
