Imagiscopes: Week of October 3, 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 October 3 – October 9, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Mindless chatter of
opposable thumbs blistering
the grip of silence
the throat of Colchuck Basin
waiting without impatience for
a million years
waiting for the
future to collapse
on the present

Literally speaking: Give some breathing room to the ideas of others and take time to examine any compulsive need to dominate or champion your ideas where such a domineering attitude creates discord—is it really necessary or productive? Maybe so, but why?

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Jaw dropping
gulping for air to feed the
gray matter, gone beyond black
and white into the vacuum of brute
ambiguity sucking with such force
that the brute within
stirs if not bellows
reckoning to be heard

Literally speaking: Drudgery just may be the way to liberation, if you can judge when to push yourself harder to take the rest you need.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Leaves withering to bid a
colorful farewell, littering the Earth
with spring’s promise fulfilled
piling summer’s ambitions in a heap
to be scattered by the winds of winter
exhaustion without name casts a bitter brew

Literally speaking: It could be productive to take some short, pleasurable trips to give you some space and time to reflect on where you feel most vulnerable, and how you might turn towards it with the strength and insight of surrender.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Granular granite slabs gleaming
with silicate, quartz rough grained
slicked down by water by rain by snow
a moisture regime without a plan
for those peaks it bathes, all merely
streaming where it may, to chip away at the edifice
to crumble and carve up a new surface

Literally speaking: A most poignant realization about home and the struggle for a feeling of security may come through encounters with lovers, close friends or perhaps even opponents.

Leo & Leo Rising

Sun that snuck through the clouds
struck the branches of the upper reaches
of the forest canopy, tilting slightly
in breezes unrepentant and glossy
with heavy mist blossoming off
the ocean
even so far inland that
abyss nurtures terrestrial creatures

Literally speaking: A hyperactive mind may lead you into overcommitment, or fear of overcommitment. It’s important to discern which is true.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Depths are sounding, pounding rhythms
echoes of the future glimpsed in the mirror
or out of the corner of your eye
like a cello winding around three notes
a shadow of a thought flits through the room
with a stir of dust motes suspended in midair
betraying a shaft of light you didn’t know was there

Literally speaking: Serious meditations on your orientation to material security and sustenance could lead you into fears that close you off to the true joys actually available to you in the present moment. Notice if fear is shutting your heart down, and take a step back to gain a greater context and perspective, for it may be that the pursuit of enjoyment will lead you to greater understanding of your sources of sustenance.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Water droplets congregate
in the sky, inexplicably they rise
to lose their form to a
new shape, density and determination
to fly into an open space
to huddle up next to each other

Literally speaking: You may find yourself unusually articulate this week concerning your need for space, comfort and relaxation, but beware of being so intellectual and abstract that you miss out on the crucial information your body might provide. As the poet David Whyte advises, “Hold to the truth you make/ every day with your own body/ don’t turn your face away”.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Curves, loops, lines, dots
dashed in a stack, assembled by rows
calling forth special eyes, sought to decode
the message inherent in it all
fluttering up from the horizon below

Literally speaking: Ordinary thoughts and habitual feelings may be magnified out of all proportion this week. Instead of reacting, pause a moment to be curious about your ways of narrating reality, for you might be able to see through some of your illusions and gain access to more truthful dimensions.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Soft wisps of air
shimmer inward
drawn by diaphragm
like water from a bottomless well
soothing flow of support
involuntary, given freely
only to be received

Literally speaking: Networks of friends, associates and other social groups may help you discover what is worth fighting for.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Fingers reaching
impacting, teaching
touching the life divine
each movement arising
from infinite others unseen
each movement propagating
infinite others unseen
missed connections working
through countless lives as a dream

Literally speaking: Taking things too personally could lead to unnecessary quarrels that only deepen the confusion. Standing up for yourself doesn’t mean correcting others’ behavior, so much as understanding your own behavior and reaching out from a place of humility and compassion for self.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Ribs of paper
spread a grateful smile
of sunshine through
the thickening skies
hanging hazy, mountains
shrugging off the shroud

Literally speaking: Make sure your verbal filter is set to “high” this week, as your passion may run off with your sense of tact and strategy, inadvertently sabotaging your own best efforts to advance a cause or advocate for an improvement you truly care about.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Preparing for descent
meant surrender
this time, more than before
had bent you towards the center
currents upwelling
nutrient dense, swelling with satisfaction
carrying you far beyond
the sunset of common sense

Literally speaking: Questions of belonging to or attempting to reform a social group you belong to may churn up some deep feelings. It could be helpful to discuss this with a skillful confidante in order to hear out your own feelings, which may run contrary to your ideas about how you do or don’t belong to that particular group.
