Imagiscopes: Week of October 24, 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.

Note, the New Moon in Scorpio occurs on October 30, 2016 at 10:38am Pacific.

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of October 24 – October 30, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Heat prickles starting at the feet
over shin and back of calf
pointing upwards and over and
into the jelly edges of water
where the first Earth being learned to swim

Literally speaking…If you’re feeling a little squished at work (or while giving the gift of your authentic being in the world), let it bring some clarity into the way you approach the exchange of energy. Giving too much? Expecting too much? Change it up!

Taurus & Taurus Rising

To see the passage of time
in the spread of bodies
penetrating other bodies
absorbing the goodly
sensing and reaching
ever outward
as the inward pursuit
of vitality

Literally speaking…What hardened emotion could use some liquefaction? This new Moon could offer you a good chance to set intentions to melt your heart in the right places, and free up some frozen momentum and life energy.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Branches pour out of the head
twisting, writhing, wild with life
responsive to wind
tickling the mood of the sky
with its fuzzy belly hanging low
soft and vulnerable

Literally speaking…What goes up must come down, but be curious about any drastic changes in altitude. Were you really flying that high, or were you just trying to avoid something?

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Exposed, all senses cranked open
by necessity, without recourse to plea
for relief or choice
comes the caress of the centuries
its melting touch, so delicious
overcoming by waves of bliss
that come crashing out of and into
the limitless
bounds of body

Literally speaking…Open up to being swallowed by the heart of love this week. It could lead you in unanticipated new directions, with spectacularly creative results.

Leo & Leo Rising

Something pure presented a challenge
to the dirty, the compounded substance
of life’s blurry edges between
right and wrong
hanging the tale of two cities
warring inside the one body
the one inhabited
the one initiated in the old ways

Literally speaking…Flush the ancestral burden buried in the tomb waters of your body, with tears which fall when and where they will. Feel the heft of the hilt of the sword you will then be able recognize as the one in your hands, commanding your body, compelling your soul.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Slickened by the flow
of the inevitable movement
of life towards itself
—not so much reaching
as being reached through—
the unidentifiable mass
painfully ejected into
the bright, blinding world
of one plus one equals two
rests complete and trusting
in the arms of its own knowing

Literally speaking…The “Unaccountable Mother” makes an appearance, and it’s up to you whether you shake your weary head (trapped in judgment) or make a fresh break with the tumult of the past (tap into your wholeness, the Good Mother).

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Browns and tans meld into purple
bumpy, velvet skin catching at fingerprints
gripping the softest stroke
holding it there a split second longer
to register the soft almost plush
fruit of the humus, miraculous and glowing

Literally speaking…Neighbors and lovers might run riot through your mind, offering the flame to your paper-thin convictions. Don’t be fooled that you aren’t attached to items of this material world or symbols of status and rank.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Stretching light arcs to ground
its genetic pulse rumbling
thrumming  without sound
on discs of invisible color
vibrating into green and gold
bubbles that pry out the truth of it
so wedged between duty and loyalty
no ordinary prise will do

Literally speaking…Will you say YES this week to a previously unimaginable vow of commitment? Perhaps a renewal of vows and promises made to yourself to keep your own house in order, so as to feel at home?

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Connected
is not fused
is not loose
Foot to earth
momentum so governed
obedient to gravity
no simple expedient
but the destined path

Literally speaking…Embrace the rupture of fantasies around who you think you are; the truth is much more beautiful. Harness this New Moon by planting a seed of trust in your actual greatness, which can only have room to emerge if you cooperate with the clearing of what clutters your vision!

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Thermals spiral and swirl
pushing rainbowed wings
from beneath
straining the light frame
they stretch apart, brightly cutting
a sodden atmosphere
with hope for change

Literally speaking…Anything that is overripe in your life is likely to start stinking to high heaven. Before you perform an emergency amputation on what smells like a gangrenous limb, take some time to find out what’s really ailing in your relational field, and take calculated, considered steps to address it.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Two small hands
heaving on a heart
beating in the chest
cupping the results
and peering into the light-lacquered hands
eyes querying whether it was first
the heart
or the hands

Literally speaking…Giving yourself over to a cause may feel familiar, but it’s not always recognized by your compatriots or understood by your intimates. Discover the deepest intention behind your selfless impulses and write it on the back of your hand, so you can remind yourself as you push and push and push against the tide.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

All rounded sharp edges
bends of 90 degrees
turning circles into corners
twisting the road leading onward
into the chain reaction
that forms the legacy pattern
you’ve been shepherding
all along

Literally speaking…Get ready for a deep dive into your sense of ethics or morality, which might be a bit shaken this week, if only for your ardent stand for what you feel is right and good.
