Imagiscopes: Week of October 10, 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 10 – October 16, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Mallet sinks into skin
stretched so taut over wind
booming animal skin
shivering with the force of
each mallet fall
massaging organs and fascia
entraining brain waves above all

Literally speaking: Don’t let big ideas get in the way of feeling as deeply as you can. Somatic and emotional revelations could do more to set your considerable will towards accomplishing goals and working within your means rather than overextending yourself.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Oh bride of the bleeding heart
open petals slender-tipped
pushing open
and flowing out of a central gate
that sags on rusty hinges
communicating age and exposure
to elements magnetic and corrosive
celebrating unity

Literally speaking: Arguments could prove productive this week, if you remain focused on serving the common good and resist getting bogged down in prideful egotism.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Wiry twisting augur
blesses the ground with
waning light, driving
home a slender truth
making bruised ground
whole, joining sides where
they have split apart

Literally speaking: Some part of you may want to come out of the inner rumpus room and play some games in the light of day. Yet another part of you might be a little afraid of the other part’s intentions, and maybe a little frightened by the game itself.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Will the world wait for me to stop?
Will it obstinately stand still as I continue to push ahead?
Roots probe the soil deep underground
finding ways through rocks and obstacles
by digging into the larger body and trusting
that mineral will come, water will come
threads holding fast by being held

Literally speaking: Beware of pushing too hard for things to go in the direction you think you want them to head. Larger currents are moving things along in your favor, even if it might not particularly seem that way at the moment.

Leo & Leo Rising

Bark, the flesh of trees
gored by hardest metal
skin-climbing higher
to thinner branches
with greater vantage point
but less foliage and so the climber
is seen
for what it is

Literally speaking: Put your convictions into action this week, makes some waves and let yourself be surprised by the consequences and reactions which ripple back to you. In other words, be genuinely curious and reflective about the response, rather than being so certain you are righteous in your intent and know exactly what the motivations of others are.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Swelling hexagonal
honeyed wax built up
bit by tiny bit
jewel tones glitter
in the center
lighting the eye
with a fresh fire

Literally speaking: Preoccupation with financial issues may interfere with making good choices concerning your health and safety.

Libra & Libra Rising

Old bones knocking together
chafing and scraping off
tiny bits of the past
clinging so long!
So long they fashion themselves
into brittle binding
blinding and undermining
the abundance of the present
come tumbling out of the overstuffed closet

Literally speaking: Gather your courage, Libra! Opening your heart to your own frailty and tender spots can expand your understanding of community and its eminent role in your life.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Wind-cupped wings
arc to ground
catching the falling sky
sending earth flying
fast, past habit
past restraint
nothing but wild presence
poise beyond pretense

Literally speaking: Calm the mind, gentle the heart, and put your considerable will into the service of your highest ideals. You can accomplish a lot if you skillfully channel challenging feelings into action.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Smoothing lines
floating on grace’s
oceanic surface,
what we call
the human body,
bending and describing
the beginning of the world
eternal

Literally speaking: It could be a great time to forge alliances with institutions or groups which could give you some new creative outlets and opportunities, just be sure to build equal exchange into the relationship particularly with regard to financial and material concerns. A lop-sided arrangement will not last long, and your energy could be better spent on other opportunities.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

The long bitumen strip
poured along the valley
leads to mountains
huddled together in the distance
expecting your ascent
bathed in white and gray
slippery snow to navigate
and all of it treacherous

Literally speaking: You’re probably not in the mood to take anyone’s crap this week and blowing your lid might feel righteous. But you could instead turn your assertion towards cleaning up your way of relating to others, rather than getting caught in ancient patterns of power struggle. You have more influence than you think; be aware of it.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Heavy, dense and shifting
rising in a coil
through the midriff
not quite churning, no
but coiling and generating
rolling in a space undefined
by time

Literally speaking: You may have to think fast on your feet to respond to something that might feel a little bit like a sneak attack. Stay in touch with the humanitarian impulse within you and you’re more likely to come up with a successful response.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Their transmissions
were like crinkled paper
wadded and unwadded
several times over
as if to try to change the message
by crumbling it before re-reading it
handing this round to the delegates
of compassion who came late
through the door and bounded up the stairs
to the loft with its tiny chair
sitting empty, masterful

Literally speaking: If grandiosity has been hounding you in any way, this week might see you returning to your more human proportions. Misinterpreting the call to be humble and to adopt a grounded clarity could result in a nasty surprise.
