Imagiscopes: Week of February 6, 2017

Imagiscopes are based on sun sign astrology, popularly known as “the horoscope” for each sign that can be found in many periodicals.  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, that realm which gives birth to all form and structure. It is an invitation for your thinking mind to relax and let your imagination out to play! It may be helpful to not try to “figure it out,” but rather to be with the mood imagiscopes evoke and see what imagery or fantasy of your own might emerge from it. 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. The Sun’s entry into an astrological sign is not exactly the same date for each month and year, and can vary by several days in the middle of each month. 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 astro-weather this week: This week features a Full Moon at 22° Leo on February 10 at 4:32pm Pacific. This Full Moon suggests that asserting your will to connect with others (in whatever way) be guided by a generosity of spirit and a commitment to truth, wherever it may lead. Know, too, that some fundamental ways you may have approached such assertion in the past may need to be updated, in order to be successful in your aims to connect.

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of February 6 – February 12, 2017

Aries & Aries Rising

Stepping out to the side
lean silver stride
carries her toward the precipice
against which she will collide
not falling but finding gravity amiss
somehow the wall leans against her
its warm side skimming off the fear
floating atop her courage

Literally Speaking… Overstepping boundaries or stepping on toes may require some quick (but skillful) action to repair or at least reach out to express your relatedness to the offended. Take care to not be too aggressive in reaching out

Taurus & Taurus Rising

It seemed simple enough.
Walk up to the front door
place the key in the lock, turn
and home free.
No one mentioned the shapeshifting
shrubbery trickling along the perimeter,
the tiny dog leaning into your soft parts, growling
and
always behind you, no matter how you turn
only its hot breath registering as threat of injury.
Move more quickly through the thicket,
it all seemed to say.

Literally Speaking… Taurus, find a safe harbor for your heart through renewing or reaffirming your commitment to spiritual practice or to self-care.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Short fingers bending long grass
before palms are planted
catching your small body
on rigid arms held aloft by smiles
and laughter
and your sister gripping your ankles
against her sides
as you two move against the sun
suspended between two valleys
of lives entwined.

Literally Speaking… Hopes and fears may push you to take rash action this week. Call on your trusted peers for grounding and guidance before making your move.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Quiet fur coated with dust
of yellow and orange
noiseless brushing of many bodies
huddling together
on a living comb of wax
permeated by a thick nectar
sustaining life for another winter

Literally Speaking… It’s worth the effort to bring your thoughts and your feelings into alignment because it will likely lead you to care for any part of you that feels abandoned or unseen as you try to push your way forward.

Leo & Leo Rising

No.
He didn’t think it was put together
incorrectly.
The way the edges met
smooth and unbreaking
and an overall sturdiness to it.
Turning it over in his hand
making a silhouette stretch
across the ground,
doubts gathered around his middle.

Literally Speaking… You might get a closer look at any rigid or inflexible parts of yourself—especially those inherited from family or culture—if you find your faith in life being challenging in various ways.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Heaving her back against the wall
a heaviness in need of support
found counterbalance, the gypsum board
seeming to push back.
And in this way, she made peace
with the fact that he wasn’t coming back.
He had gone too far away, out of sight
of the mind’s eye, and besides
her socks needed ironing.

Literally Speaking… Pushing the limits of your stamina this week would be ill advised. Give yourself enough time to recharge.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Stepping up to the counter
they noticed the corners of the barman’s mouth
turned down and a little crooked
and looking past him,
in the mirror,
they stared back at themself
with great surprise
unsure who was standing behind them
a ghostly haze a foot taller than they

Literally Speaking… Your social life may feel rather active or even overwhelming at this time. What do you absolutely have to do? And how can you have some fun doing it?

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Featherweight
resting on a single
stilt leg
ruffles of water
stirred by the wind
cannot topple
the tall, elegant creature

Literally Speaking…Your feelings may be on full display this week…or so it seems to you. Respect any rawness you may experience, and listen closely to its secrets.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Steady snowing snowing snowing
softly lining my heart
strangely warm to touch,
as it packs down to slush,
heavy and familiar, this weight
asking me to bear it up and over and beyond
the habits of mind that would stop
the snow from falling, falling, falling
and filling my heart with its promise
of changes yet to come.

Literally Speaking… Risk trying to see through your habitual ways of thinking about “play” in its most adult and its most youthful forms. You might untangle a few knots that lace your heart closed.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

May your grief feed your praise
until the end of all days
the loss that robs
carrying some gift under a cloak
of tears and sorrow
cracking the sky open
with hues of crimson, pink and purple

Literally Speaking…How are your ritual containers for emotional turbulence? Are you remembering that ritual has a beginning, a middle and an end (meaning, allowing  or integration of the new before examining more layers)? Make a sacred space for any confusion or conflicting feelings, where learning can happen.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Propelled by an engine of rhythm
its flames bursting out of the bones
an entire body alight with the demands
of the phoenix, a bird become human
become an inferno of fury
in service of birth
harming no one

Literally Speaking…Find constructive outlets for anger or frustration, but don’t bottle it up and merely play nice. If your vitality is otherwise feeling blocked, you might find dancing or other movement useful to get your energy flowing in the right direction.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Dark and moist, warm soil squishes
between naked toes, whole feet
sinking into the rich earth
churning the smell of dirt skyward
tickling the nose with decay
become nutrient, cueing phosphorescent sound
chiming in the mind as new waves breaking
over barriers put in place long ago

Literally Speaking… Your dependencies on others (both healthy and unhealthy) may come to the fore and test any progress you’ve recently made on good boundaries and clear communication.
