Imagiscopes: Week of December 5, 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 December 5 – December 11, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Shudder of winds riffling
through black fringe
ringing a shawl of false hope
spread round the shoulders
hanging low, hanging thin

Literally speaking…If you find yourself critical of your mastery or level of achievement in your chosen field(s) of study, shepherd that awareness of lack or insufficiency as an ally to making improvements.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Shadows on spindles twirling
forward, one following another
stretching the ground into softer shapes
amidst mounds of melted snowlight
huddling in the space outside of space

Literally speaking…Issues of insecurity around one’s social support network, or even one’s intimate relationships may be driven to the surface this week. Take a moment to assess whether you feel free enough to be yourself in your relationships, or if you feel that your individuality or perhaps the freedom it requires (yours or others) is somehow threatening.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

The wide belly of the river yawns
to gulp up life returning to spawn life
giving up salted gills
for a different flavor of air
that slashes through sediment and bedrock

Literally speaking…Have you got a touch of the Crusades this week? Indulge your Gemini love of learning and gather up some more practical details before setting off on the long journey to quell injustice, lest you find only windmills when you arrive at your destination.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Shifting lights plunge through the heart slit
of a wide open third eye
turning dials for
all valves to dilate
release and connect

Literally speaking…This week’s energies would be well directed towards reflecting on and shoring up your health routines and rituals. An especially fruitful exploration could center on your tendencies to merge with others and where that interferes with necessary focus on your body’s needs.

Leo & Leo Rising

Dried flesh puckering
in the sun, picked clean
from the raw, pulled out
of the round, warm den
of growing seasons
and made to transition
to cure a new form

Literally speaking…You may feel a surge of confidence or a surge of self-doubt concerning how you are moving out in your intimate relationships with others. If there is conflict, especially around the level of freedom or restriction you may feel, try to be present to what you really need and want, and negotiate from there—even if it brings some losses.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Glass pipe smearing steel strings
into sound ribboning like springs
radiant from the center of a cosmic torso
bent but firm, leaning into the Earth
plucking with unbearable harmony

Literally speaking…You may receive some fresh insights into problems you have had with “home” (actual home or in a broader sense), or perhaps concerning family history or relations. Try not to be so hard on yourself, and give a little space for the more creative or visionary part of you to engage, however long it may take for that to emerge.

Libra & Libra Rising

Knee planted in the ground
melting all around it
streams of soil washing
out around the unmoving limb
as comes the flood
from behind, heavy and urgent

Literally speaking…The art of spontaneity might be calling you into a concerted dance with whatever challenges your attachments to routines—or to chaos!  Art and finesse are the keywords here, and you might find some guidance by diving into your deepest sources of courage.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Rasping forth, full throated
embodying the turn just up ahead
unseen
on the road
that travels your feet
pushing them onward
a patient, immoveable pilgrim
always at the ready

Literally speaking…This week can offer up a little extra drive, initiative and spontaneous insight into all the anger which may be bubbling up from your unconscious lately. Even if the outer sources of your ire seem “obvious,” turning that anger into useful action (rather than an ulcer) can be helped along by reflecting on how you can serve your highest values rather than martyr yourself to them.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Spacious chest
expanding breath
colliding with the ribcage
in each exchange of
carbon dioxide for oxygen
squeezed through miles
of cooperation

Literally speaking…A racing, argumentative mind may experience an influx of grace this week, allowing more attention to be turned towards reflecting on any conflicts between how you would like to be seen, and how you actually project your image to others.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Poised for pivot
toes
encircled with rings
of gold
grip the ground
preparing for flight
unable to stand down

Literally speaking…It’s a useful week for reflecting on how states of consciousness outside of ordinary, everyday awareness—be they the life of dreams, visions and fantasy, or induced by substances, music or dance—have played a role in your evolution, healing and growth. How might your relationship to those “nonordinary” states of consciousness be shifting to serve you in the best way possible?

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Windsteeds pummel the clouds
with feathered hooves
driving veins of light before them
tearing the sash of the sky
causing
nectar to seep down to feed
all who crowd inside

Literally speaking…Life itself seems to be converging upon you in a way which strikes at the heart of the matter. It’s as if X-ray vision is penetrating into the hidden heart of the cosmos, which you find is beating inside your very own chest. Use this power of perception wisely, and be steady as you respond to the inevitable which is unfolding.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Steel skids against steel
fighting and hauling on
a mile of iron
piled up behind those
steel wheels
harnessed to steam
burning the final hours of sunlight

Literally speaking…Your sacred gift, your calling, is demanding a renewal, a release from a karmic bond which restrains your full flowering. While the origins of this karmic bond are mysterious, its activity is visible in the ways you receive what is given to you (rightly or wrongly).
