Imagiscopes: Week of February 13, 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.

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of February 13 – February 19, 2017

Aries & Aries Rising

Slick fur over fat
rolling body, made for water
that knows these flippers well
built to push and glide
through the strange suspension
of gravity, twisting through the swells

Literally Speaking… If you’re bursting with creative energy, enjoy it in both an internally focused and an externally exuberant manner. Balancing these two will help you maximize this creative burst, as it unfolds through time.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

She sunk down on her thighs
skin spreading taut in ripples
of relaxation giving way to sighs
of relief from within
no vanity to purchase,
no pride to sell
tension releasing and
sliding off her shoulders
like a loose and comfortable sweater

Literally Speaking… Now is a time when making yourself look attractive will yield more results than ardent pursuit of attention from someone. Put more effort into your initial presentation, rather than relying on follow up and frequent contact to persuade the other to engage you.

Gemini & Gemini Rising

“But when I push outward,
it pulls me inward
And when I pull inward
it pushes me outward!”
The small child kicked at the ground
with disgust
everything they had been told
about how the world worked
was wrong
All of a sudden
push became pull
and pull became push
but from whose rule book
the caprice came
the child could not look

Literally Speaking… Is your way of seeing the world one which tends to isolate you from others, or one which tends to lend itself to connection (whether a felt sense, or actualized through relationship)? Examining this aspect of your general approach to the world could free up some blocked creative energy that could otherwise possibly become volatile.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

If you lean and place all
your weight
on an unmoving object
does it absorb the energy you put in?
or does it give it back again?

Literally Speaking… This week may feature a few reversals or changes in your professional sphere. The metaphor of dancing may be helpful to navigate this. Are you dancing with others? Who is leading, who is following? Are you maybe actually dancing alone, and more free to improvise your way to ecstasy than you thought?

Leo & Leo Rising

Crisp snap of the wrist
sends the carousel spinning
around and around
you set yourself in motion
carrying kinetic wisdom
of the wheel
to its final conclusion

Literally Speaking… You could be drawn into more interaction with your peer group, and perhaps feel the urge to communicate a bit more than normal. As you do so, notice if there are any shared resources out there you might be able to tap into for needed support.

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Ramrod straight
the conifer rose into the canopy
its crown out of sight
clustered with its neighbors
beneath the vault of sky
whose cargo is secured in wispy ships
of condensed moisture
just waiting for the moment
to break free and bless the treetops

Literally Speaking… You may be given the opportunity to break out of old and outgrown habits of connecting with others, or simply feel those old habits and fears rising up from your past. Maybe you don’t have to make yourself so vulnerable so quickly, maybe you have time to feel out new situations before throwing your entire being into it.

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Earth spilled in all directions
under the tiny body
held in midair
you know, that feeling of being held
by one’s middle
a great hand of loving grasp
holding one up
to see as far as can be seen
in the distance
in the foreground
and no sense of danger
all secure in the surrounds

Literally Speaking… Dance, draw, sing, make art, preferably with others but alone if you must. If these activities can somehow serve the greater good or some social mission, all the better.

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

What the hell
was this washboard way
down the slope, moving too fast
but no brakes
only bump after bump
striking each stiff leg
shock after shock
of resisting the slide
but no way to stop

Literally Speaking…Revelation must be terrible…but it doesn’t have to be torturous. It might even be a relief, if you can let go of your attachment to the outcome and look for the wisdom in an enlarged perspective.

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

The entire body recoiled
upon hitting the water
and sinking into the unspeakable
cold
limbs automatically began churning
movement necessary to life
to avoid sure death
from exposure to the slowness of ice

Literally Speaking…  Beware of taking on too much work or pursuing too many ideas all at once this week, so that you can be successful with your initiative. Stay grounded and in touch with the limits of the body, and spiritual practices for doing so are especially indicated.

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Keying up the soul
keying in the sound
of fingers tapping on strips of wood
bound to wire and hammer
insisting on vibration
insisting on echo, resonant with
the past which could only offer up
this present
pregnant with the future now

Literally Speaking…Whatever is stirring on the family or home front may take longer to work out than any urgency you may feel around it (though it seems that big changes are indeed afoot). Not to worry, that slow and steady Capricorn dedication should bring desired results.

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Jagged lines come sizzling
through your line of vision
silver and bold and unsettling
in announcing their presence
splashing against the more ordinary
colors of your life
creating contrast and unrest
stirring some rebellion
beneath the decks
a rumbling in the holds below

Literally Speaking…If you’re feeling unsteady, you’re in the right place! Your mind may challenged to stretch in new and uncomfortable ways, as you strive to remain true to your values in radically shifting times.

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Thin muslin blouse
sieving the wind
wistful in its twisting
surrender to atmospheric
shifts of pressure
pressing in on skin

Literally Speaking… This week favors questioning how patterns of (unhealthy) enmeshment with others are connected to feelings of material insecurity. How could insecurities concerning your material or worldly well-being be creating (co-)dependent relations?
