Imagiscopes: Week of December 12, 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.

A Note About the Weather: The Full Moon occurs at 22°26′ Gemini on December 13, 2016 at 5:05pm Pacific.

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of December 12 – December 18, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Face cupped in hand
the burn of tears forcing
through a thicket of reluctant
tear ducts lighting a path
to the hearth of sorrow

Literally speaking…Beginning the week with gentle receptivity to hints and clues from unconscious motivations or compulsions that you have been tracking could sharpen your awareness and understanding of those compulsions, as the week progresses.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

It was something to put a spring in your crawl
hop – bounce – land on two front paws
and tail curling under again to lift
with some surprise
your young, smiling face up
flailing into the sky
hop – bounce – landing again
to greet the ground in a solid thump

Literally speaking…Interactions with peers or siblings could challenge your beliefs and ideals about the world, and prompt some re-evaluation.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Back and forth
back and forth
the rock of the ages
moving it all forward
and backwards
side to side
the inward tilt slightly sickening
as the center melts away
and leaves only
the rocking of the ages

Literally speaking…Some facet of your responsibility to others may come to fruition this week, and it could signal the renegotiation of boundaries or even a realization that backing off may be the most responsible move to make.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Heavy legged and sloshing around
like a glass overfull
ready to tip its secrets out
in a drunkard’s dance with
the mystery of gravity and
all its demands
it won’t negotiate,
it wants to stand
upright
or not at all

Literally speaking…This week could place a spotlight on your dependencies on others, particularly as regards maintaining physical, spiritual and emotional well-being. Do your best to welcome in any shift of perspective on your one-to-one relationships, for it could generate a creative renewal.

Leo & Leo Rising

Black splotched bodies
spattered with the paint of the real
are becoming whole, rendering life
from mists, that mere memory vapor
pouring from the past
into present forms and running fate
down a narrowing hall
sealing off all escape

Literally speaking…Protect your leonine heart this week both by being willing to feel every feeling that emerges from your body, and also by carefully choosing which conversations you have.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Thighs gripping and grabbing
at the creativity funneling before the open door
so much uncertainty teetering there
beyond that open door
and what entreaty could force entry
with so much at stake
so much to fear, the terror of letting go
and being seen, twisting thighs tighter
thickening the scene

Literally speaking…The gift of your being in this world reaches a climactic point this week, as those qualities and ways unique to you (and desperately needed by the world at large) become more visible. The deeper source of your brand of creative artistry may also rise closer to the surface, allowing you to more closely align with it.

Libra & Libra Rising

Small hands massaged each edge
and gently gripping them
coaxed the two sides apart
falling now like rain
they just needed to get started
to loosen the bond that held
them as one,
now softly popping apart

Literally speaking…This week may bring a check in on the honesty and integrity of your communications with loved ones. The Libran tendency to smooth over real differences and avoid conflict could royally backfire and produce far more conflict than some gracious forthrightness would have.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Sweeping over the ground
and landing
firm footfalls supported by
an enormous
skeleton flexing between tendons
extending all the way to the gray bellies of clouds
billowing overhead, tensioning the body
into new traction

Literally speaking…Bring as much consciousness as you can to any flare up of insecurities you have, especially those concerning your peers or siblings, because it could contribute much to a breakthrough realization about old, outworn habits of thought that are ready to be seen through and released.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Arcing shadows trace
the connections
between two poles of experience
a seething desire to be known
wrestling with shredded nerves
and testy, impatient limbs
too willing to leap out into traffic

Literally speaking…It’s a good time to scrutinize what value your one-to-one relationships bring into your life. How do they support your creative growth, or how do they hamper it? How much time do you really have to invest in which relationships? Choose wisely.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Ribbons chartreuse and ultraviolet
churning currents silken
flashing through
and past and beyond the silver
horizon dimly seen, so bright
it intimidates the senses

Literally speaking…You may receive some insight into the areas where you are giving until it hurts. Take the opportunity to question your own motives, rather than bemoaning your fate, or focusing on others’ (or situations’) insatiable appetites.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

How do you manage to move
so fluidly through molasses?
Though arms make right angles
they seem unrestricted
and you pivot and swirl on legs
rigid and firm, unswayed by the
thick, viscous fluid sticking to everything

Literally speaking…This week may have you reflecting on the ways your creativity is received and by whom. You may find yourself more willing to rock the boat in search of a more satisfying mission to serve, in search of deeper waters to ply.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

As if a giant crowbar
were seeking leverage beneath
your rump, prising and pumping
urging animation, you rise reluctant
stuck on something, avoidant

Literally speaking…It’s a good week to remember your body’s wisdom and listen to its utterances, however contrary its perspective may be to your immediate wants and desires. Your body’s knowing has something important to offer to your awareness, particularly if you find yourself drawn to ruminate on your future plans.
