Imagiscopes: Week of October 17, 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 17 – October 23, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Windowpane etched with
trails of tiny organisms
tails of tiny beings dragging
through glass sweat
a slow future speaking
reaching out to quicken the present

Literally speaking: Watch your words this week, because it may be a matter of not whether you’ll blurt something out that makes waves, but how you’re going to address the fallout. Not it must necessarily be negative, but perhaps shocking, even to you.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

On this day, the light stood
with a particular sway
thrumming east and west
twirling in fancy dress
and dancing the end of the day
as if it were a new dawn

Literally speaking: Physical activities like exercise, dance or outdoor sports, could offer a great outlet for excess energy and prove more pleasurable than usual. Climbing mountains with your mind might also do the trick.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Such a pleasant click
wood chip against medallion
sterling old grain of
unvarnished time accumulated
in lignin and spread by golden light
clinking together like a tsunami cresting
pressing in, pressing over the shoreline

Literally speaking: Now is not the time to wax philosophical about money. Moving through a viscerally felt, internal struggle around how and with whom you must share or collaborate on sources of wealth can free your mind for more creative pursuits.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Turning toward the door
an arc of fabric following
sweeping the air clean of
misperceptions and misunderstandings
her arm gliding forward
in a gesture of offering
to receive

Literally speaking: This is a great week to give your central nervous system a rest, to enact rituals of calm, centering, grounding, and care for the body. Facilitating inner equilibrium and calm could very well open the portal to productive and stimulating ideas and connections.

Leo & Leo Rising

Screen awash in reflected light
carried the mind’s reverie
beyond the reach of the rational
the linear tangle weaving line
choking and binding, tightening
its grip until the great loosening
the great unseen disembarking

Literally speaking: You may be bursting at the seams with ideas, fresh insights and perspectives, but perhaps some restrictions or complications around putting them into action. Where possible, look for collaborations or partnerships that could ease those restrictions, rather than struggling to go it all alone.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Heat rising from hands cupping
tender feet, hands caressing
warming feet, standing bravely
holding body, erect and aligned
with the Earth divine, holy and broken

Literally speaking: If hanging on to old ideas is your thing, prepare for a few things to be knocked loose this week. Friendships (both platonic and more romantic) may provoke deeper feelings than usual, as you try to gain footing on new ground.

Libra & Libra Rising

Porous woven basket
suspended from one arm
making a chalice of the sky
that leans against the back
of a lone figure, standing separate
above and all eyes below
watching

Literally speaking: No more Mr. Nice Guy/Ms. Nice Gal? If you’ve been struggling to maintain appearances while betraying a deep truth, this week could see a crack appear in that trembling façade.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Sizzling light seeps into the retina
saturating vision with the impurity
of light, the unholiness
of light, bearing witness
to the searing pain of emptiness

Literally speaking: If you’re struggling with secrets, please make an effort not to betray yourself. Look under your own cloak for the dagger you suspect of the other.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

I stood, rippling
buffeted by the clear stream
of boiling hot water
that carved the cliff face beside me
steaming pores open
releasing untold centuries of
lament and deprivation
into this abundant Earth

Literally speaking: It’s a great week to put concerted efforts towards transforming your relationship or orientation to material resources. This can open up new horizons on your hopes and expectations for the future, with an expanded vision of what is possible.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Slender, tentative strokes
of tongue
licking the air
tasting the scented hints
of mother, rough-skinned
sliding gait, each footfall in sand
carrying child further into the future

Literally speaking: Being possessed by ambition could give way to a sweet dissolution, as you see through one of your most punishing and limiting false beliefs. Allow the insight to come, and give it plenty of space to teach you a new way of seeing.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

The entire ocean drained
into the Marianas Trench,
which became a huge sink, unplugged
and all the fish!
the fish flapping on the newly exposed
ocean floor
there were just fish
billions of multi-hued bodies
flailing

Literally speaking: Someone is staging a jailbreak, and you may be the last to know about it. Don’t worry, if the liberation is not entirely sweet, there will be a distinct silver lining.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Pause pressed in on the body
in a long sighing breath
of tears, cleansing skin
blessing the cataract
passing between two worlds
as unfillable as the space
that gives shape to atoms

Literally speaking: Dashed hopes could ultimately bring good fortune, if you can choose to be responsive rather than (only) reactive to disappointment. A new and successful strategy could then reveal itself.
