Imagiscopes: Week of August 1, 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 August 1 – August 7, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

It smolders
Crusted over black
and glowering
(not glowing)
livid orange red
molten mineral
silicate and resolute

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Twinges in the gums
blurs the line between
pleasure and pain
to twist it free from its root
unseat it from its setting
sends sharp signals
skittering through the nervous system

Gemini & Gemini Rising

How a skeleton hangs
from the graceful curve of collarbone
fingers trace that hillside
and valley sculpted by the
reach of arms
searching for forbidden fruit
in the sticky sweet of summertime

Cancer & Cancer Rising

This nose keeps drizzling
as if some small stone
had lodged in the nasal passage
and refused to budge
resisting every honk, snort and sniffle

Leo & Leo Rising

wiry, thin strips aglow
and stacked three tall
set the course, high
skyward
drawing the senses low,
downward
cloud spelunking

Virgo & Virgo Rising

why does the madrone tree
twist its branches
into spiral shapes
as it stabilizes slopes
holding whole hillsides together
with its slow and steady growth

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Half submerged
ponderous shell pokes
out of the water
tiny legs and feet hidden
working the flow
with head down below

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Arrows smoothly course past numbers
on a small dial
behind crystal
the horizon turning over on its side
with each passing hour
day yielding to night
night dispelled by daylight
How quickly dreams do
run dry

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

There’s this spinning wheel,
I know it!
That gathers up all the rocks
that I throw it
whipping them shapely and comely
making a brilliant design
a bowl from pebbles of all size

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Become the lowing of the toad
royalty of all
who countenance its call
Become the thrill of water
spilling over the land
saturating skin with electrifying wisdom

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

A pleated disc
festooned
in blue?
in red? or white?
In what reward
do you disguise your true honor?
Hanging on so tight
to the peg on the wall
so frightened it may fall

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Facing the sun the day long
hot rocks of mother origin
offer comfort
to the sore
the tired and the wretched
feet walking so far, so far
to see the sun set on home’s shores

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of July 25 – July 31, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Dropping down to go up
snug in its sheath
a silver piston drives forward
even as we sleep
this bouncing rod of energy
is a precarious bequeath

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Marshmallow gooey billows
spongy and insincere
Did I really put that in my mouth?
How shall I get it out?
But no turning around here
Nothing to do but ride it out

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Soft fleshy rounding
of air deeply inhaled
and a parting of the pearled gates
sends forth a gust
scattering tiny tufts
of parasol seed
to land where they must

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Loosely woven fabric
gauzy and hazy
comes to rest on the divan
spreading itself gracefully
as color on a canvas
might paint a scene serene

Leo & Leo Rising

Soft vegetal curve
of petal tracing the
food of the sun
chasing a certain trajectory
laid out by the shape
of the landscape it inhabits
needing bow to no one

Virgo & Virgo Rising

A pouty-mouthed singer struts
across the stage of our heart
shouting in admonishment
“You can’t always get what you want”
and we fold the knitted cloth
pilled with time’s worry
primly in our laps
and cast aside fate

 

Libra & Libra Rising

A sinking feeling turned to stone
in the stomach
warns against wearing pain
like some plagued vestment
A badge of identification or
a homing signal
that can only lead astray

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Is it torsion in the intestines
or a call to guts and glory?
An unfamiliar tweak in the limbic system
comes calling at your door
promising to pull more than
just waste from resentment

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Flat cavern of diamond shape
fluttering folds circulate
around its rosy perimeter
desirous of a seeker brave enough
to penetrate
its velvety interior

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Natural bevel ending on all corners
solid structure of six sides
bears mineral consciousness
a quartz lucidity
precipitate of Earth’s crust

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Skin diving
drifters over coral reef
propellers to sandy bottom of the sea
peering laden with preparation
but unprepared for that which is seen
quickly running out of air
rushing against lungs bursting
to breech the tension of the surface
that holds them there

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Balanced on a thin metal edge
slicing through ice
liquid grace moves in steady
strokes towards freedom’s device
a means of unseeing
or re-throwing the dice

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of July 18 – July 24, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Trickle by dribble
granular time coaxed
through the exquisite
curve and line of gravity’s rhyme
sending puffs up from the bottom
of the clear glass vessel

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Hollow seedpod resounding when struck
making that mahogany sound
tickling the thymus
turning you round
soft and firm,
hard as keratin
its quickening pattern
thickens and thickens

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Cold slushing sound
starting like a clap but
ending in a long rattle
like a small animal
crashing through reeds
Is it the sound of ocean wave breaking
or just a seashell
held to your ear and starting to breathe?

Cancer & Cancer Rising

It went skittering on tiny legs—
chased by the wave coming ashore
pausing for no moment more
skittering it goes back again, brave, tilting
at the wild, wide ocean
claiming its space, fully filling its niche

Leo & Leo Rising

A low thump
announces a grouse on the prowl
bright orange sac inflated
inviting all the lovers to
prance with his tail fanned
and head erect, alert
for evidence of his worthiness

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Sifted by sound
fine white powder
gathers in patterns
kaleidoscopic and mandalic
pointing the way to the center
by following each in-breath
with out-breath
on a steady tread

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Let yourself be drawn in
by the whirlpool of desire
spiraling downward with a great sucking sound
the suction of yearning
gripping the body

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Through billowing smoke
a pair of eyes pierce
the veil
seeing through the joke
you thought had you
(for a second there)
burning up with truth
that sets hair on end

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

The river is water
chasing gravity to the bottom
of its reach
The river is rock carved to sand
and algae sprouting in response to
repetitive caress
spawning fish, frog and newt
River becomes cradle
for effortless pursuit

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Node to node
worked into net
by the great ocean
which sieves connections
from the vast reservoir of sentience
taken to form

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Smooth, green and inviting
the plump succulent flourishes in desert
by never missing the chance to
drink up when it can
Slick juice that takes years
to accumulate will lubricate
a plant when the time is
right for releasing

Pisces & Pisces Rising

An artesian well
a precious gift indeed
Pressure ready made
by nature
to push the precious elixir of life
from earth
the spout counting not more than the flow
both are required
for life to grow

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of July 11 – July 17, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

The barrier separating sweetwater from salt
prepares to crack open, and the wait is long
sitting in low vessel, facing backwards
in the narrow vault of the lock
unable to prime paddle or muscle
and resist the drift
out to sea

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Popping, writhing, twisting
turned to
waving, spiraling, flowing
movement
Superficial
turned to
foundational
Route of the woolly bear’s undoing

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Hard
reinforced
sharp enough to shear sheep clean
this blade
bleeds tears
of red
pleading
use with care

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Every wave builds to crest
then falls to trough
Piling up one
behind the other
crushing the form preceding
into inexorable curl
that crashes flat again
Almost without feeling
though not without pain.

Leo & Leo Rising

Long, gunmetal gray
solid and smithed
with fine hooks winding
all around its
circumference
in carefully
considered array
perfect for piercing tender flesh
But what is this thing for, anyway?
It’s attached to no staff
just hanging there in midair
imposing on its possessor
a kind of possession state

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Finding the most efficient shape
to give form to new growth
will not suffice to break open
topsoil and spread to receive
the light
The ground is tight
packed with pounds of rain
calling for a new strain
of sturdy stem to find the nutrient base

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Spewing sparks skyward
along an invisible electric current
the ice plant reaches for
a canopy of blue
wiggling its way out of the glue
of the ground

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Koi cuts water
with its fin
head bumping the surface
gently rippling reflection
sending clouds spinning
in every direction

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Tiny teeth catch in sprockets
setting oval shapes in motion
elliptical crawl across the floor
smooth though not frictionless
grinding forward on gears

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

They let down their locks of hair
all falling open to the air and
loosed to the elements
do what they care
with these soft antennae

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Listen to the crackle
of seed against gourd
heartbeat against flesh
falling thick and fast now
clattering out your hour

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Drifting layers
shifting spaces
trading places
for the thin to marshall the thick
governing the movement of the great
as if harnessed to the moon

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of July 4 – July 10, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

What started with small tinder
spreads its warmth through chest
through breast
until arms of flame
embraced your face shaping
fierce beast from gray softness

Taurus & Taurus Rising

All in one rush
a great cascade from above
shocking cold and clear
gathering at your feet in mud
made of quartz, refracting sunlight
broken mineral, once was mountaintop

Gemini & Gemini Rising

The fissure in the rock
did not compromise it.
Steady, it balanced on top of the others
you had stacked
with the precision of a patient person
Each one pulled from the mines
of your heart and left there to do
what it does best:
trust gravity’s heft.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Twisting tight and constricted
hardened tissues wound so taut
The burdensome bud
before bursting into blossom
A concentration of energy
meant to unfold in silken stars
of quiet repose

Leo & Leo Rising

Tail twitching
eye trained on target
following every move
to send sinews into action
lightning response
to the movement of quarry
in the thicket of inaction

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Out of a murky haze
comes tippy-toe up behind you
a tap on the shoulder from the invisible
Because turning around
there’s no one behind you
But it got your attention, didn’t it?
A great victory when just turning around
for a second look
is half the battle

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Those places on the body
invisible to the self without
a mirror
are cracking open now
exposing all the tender
raw flesh to atmosphere
drawing out old poisons
Decomposition is the medicine

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Old discolored flesh
sign of old wound
opening up fresh
scar tissue didn’t quite cover it
what is ungrieved
gives  no rest

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

A pinpoint of light
extended to streak
across the sky
burned up in an instant
alight with transcendence

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

There was once an old man
who tried to stop the sun rising.
He pushed it back down below the horizon.
Stepped on it when it tried to rise again
grumbling, struggling, sprouting white hairs
in vain illusion of gaining a few hours’ sleep

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Blonde tones on tan brown
a block of wood made fuzzy
floating on tides
rubbed by salt and sand and sea
then deposited high and dry
ashore a foreign isle
although born from the land
it longs to again float free

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Soft, round mouth
in an “O” shape
gaping and grasping for breath
from an element which
cannot provide it
while slight, slim body
flails against the ground
awkwardly flopping away from certain death

Imagiscopes are offered as a window into the living imagination, the imaginal realm which gives birth to all form and structure.

Perhaps they will spark a memory, a feeling, or a more intuitive recognition of the planetary powers at play in your life this week. It may be helpful to not try to “figure it out,” but rather to sit with the mood it evokes and see what imagery or fantasy of your own might emerge in response.

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of June 27 – July 3, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Swirling sparkling beckoning
filamental being
dewdrop display of  light-riddled tissue
tantalizing hints of mysterious sacrament

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Fingers penetrate the soil
turning earth in cupped hand
held like a hoe or a shovel
determined and bound to this talisman
Earth and land and rock and root
moved as you move within

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Silver foil folded just so
set straight on a stick to
spin as the wind blows
Catching sunlight, it makes its
rounds only to stop as
dead air grows thick

Cancer & Cancer Rising

From afar, the hills moved in waves
Ripples rising and falling, lifting grasses,
flowers, trees just a little ways
into the air—and gently back down again
Up close, we saw the tiny interlocking joints
Millions of them! Working in concert to
ease the earthquake through, without damage,
without bruise, opening the ground
in all the right places

Leo & Leo Rising

It’s gratuitous
Luxuriant orange, yellow, pale
darkening at the edges
Rising heat to feed the
hunger of the combustible

Virgo & Virgo Rising

What’s this?
A basket woven watertight
but failing to hold its promise
Gaping holes in its weave
reveal its maker hobbled

 

Halpern_Pardee_Dam

Libra & Libra Rising

Layers and layers
of flakes of rock
evaporating in a landscape
bent by the heat
Heaping pressure on the
weakest point
finally to give
to give all shame away

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Stripes light the way
their darkness penetrating
this body
of water
Vessel gliding intact and whole
toward The Mother
silken breath of water
giving life
giving succor

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Drawing down
cool and clear
drawing down
through a steady state cylinder
while all about, the tempest tosses
the center gathers in all that looks like chaos
its walls dynamic, solid, lossless

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

A tickling signal of terror
in the stomach
ship shuddering in heavy seas
thick with portent
inspiring weak knees
plunging ahead, nowhere to go
except forward
steady as she goes,
the crew holding the bearings
and you keeping your head

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Look for no bed of nails
to lie on
to test your concentration
strength of mind or
forbearance
Find instead a magnet
that turns the sharp points
downward to face the ground
and traverse the smooth edges

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Jouncing up and down
this rhythm found through
boundless repetition
The body loosens
breaking up the old constriction
bonds broken, compacts come to fruition
—sticky though they may be

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of June 20 – June 26, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Island white clumps
persist in a sea
of grease
melting in the pan
resisting the heat
asked to yield, to cease to be
hard in the face of unity’s
masquerade as diversity

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Graceful sweep of horns
turning on a thick neck
pointing toward the foes of time
so fleeting on Earth
so fleeting, our lives
The bull stands defiant,
perhaps a little mad,
gouging out space

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Brow gentling in release
of tension
spreading to jaw and into teeth
unclenching, chest spreading wide
to accept the breath of life
deep and sure and unwinding
the long, ancient coil of anxiety
into broad shoulders capable of
relaxation

Cancer & Cancer Rising

An unfamiliar tingle in the breasts
rising up into nipple
tempting to arousal
a newborn desire to dance
with a partner whose form
is felt but unseen

Leo & Leo Rising

Cutting through water
hand over head
strokes pulling liquid past
body
hand over head
slicing a distance
which cannot be tread
you dive towards the bottom
spiraling round back to surface
facing the same direction
with utter determination
hand over head
buoyant and fixated

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Ruffles catch the wind
as she spins
she spins
self-possessed
in the wind
that tosses but does not turn her
That centripetal force
emerges from within

 

Libra & Libra Rising

Snapping out a tune
played by the atmosphere
sweeping along in its
metamorphosing blue hue
Your flag sits high on its flagpole
none too shabby
pulled down and replaced the next day
with new designs to waver, etched in silver
quivering with redefined goals

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Supple brush filled with ink
spreads pigment across a broad canvas
each stroke making a dark sky darker
until finally all the stars sparkle

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Dexterous paws slide along suspended
arrow shaft, balancing with a long tail
curving backwards, now forwards
as the line bends and sways under weight
of exploration

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Arc of electric light
showering out of joined wires
terrifying and threatening
until fingers find the means
to break the circuit cleanly
and attend to the connection
making repair of insulation
with a careful inspection
of what was slipshod
about initial construction

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Spokes glint in sunlight
spinning around an axel
until the rim they describe
collides with a rock in the way
contorting and bending the play
to a form more befitting

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Cognizance brushes your shoulder
suggesting you look downward
at feet sucking into soft clay mud
its shiny thickness reaching
towards shin, its smoothness
leaches out toxins laden in the flesh
for a liver hardening lifetime
The firmness of the ground is healing
to soles, reminding ankles how to
stand upright and navigate the shoals

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of June 13 – June 19, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

We were a bit surprised to find
the eaves pointed skyward.
Looking up to see a neat shingled roof
as if the carpenter had gone mad
the architect had lost touch with the environment.
Still, we climbed over the edge to see
the bright red petals of eaves, climbing
into the sky, and marveled at the design.

Taurus & Taurus Rising

The tang of green telling taste buds to
open up wide, let in the
unfamiliar as well as the tried
a zesty call for new food to plunge
the soul and tend the body
mend the mind and slip the tongue

Gemini & Gemini Rising

As a child, we crouched beside
the puffy anemone, watching it wave
with the tide.
Expecting it to grow and grow
we were sad to see it subside.
But looking closely we might have discovered
what all along, we were willing to hide.

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Soft white light breaches the horizon
carving a stark ruffle of distant trees
Ringed in silver fairy dust droplets of mist
herald of the Artist cracking the chrysalis

Leo & Leo Rising

Graceful play of flame
against metal
burnishing smooth surface
with the soothe of heat
sweeping new color cracking
beneath layered old soot

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Bright and spritely leaping
over the sprinkler
running ‘round to jump through again
with a squeak and the singular pleasure
of feet bouncing off the singed, dry Earth
splashing up puddles of muddying water

 

Home

Libra & Libra Rising

Riding sine waves, supine
a sky of cirrus clouds far overhead
with crushing clarity for the taker
the one willing to ride the waves
and cease trying to dicker with time

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Long and slender, rising out
the parting waters
making movement towards shore
its gentle round end points the way forward

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Flecks of glittering light to dazzle the senses
alluring, beckoning, teasing with a shock of fright
at the tower of formidable flesh that stands in plain sight
in your cave of treasures. It lowers its scaly head,
heaving obese body to rest, sizing you up with
wily eye and pointed tooth—will you find this guardian
without you or within you?

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Eyes gently squeezing shut
fixing gaze so firmly on a long frozen scene
mysteriously the furrow upon the brow softens
and relaxes, offering a thawing, a denouement, a boon
of opened eyes that can cease all needless striving

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

Crowns of trees swirl beneath spiraling wings
honing in on the special bough holding a nest
Most delicate landing, gripping the edges of
skillfully interlaced branches and sticks
Leaning in to examine the squabble of
fuzzy feathered hunger, pushing forward new morsels
to ease the feeling of emptiness which fends off starvation

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Miraculous
standing in a sea of flowers
peeking through fresh burst buds
hinting a glimmer of the scent of
fecundity to come

Imagiscopes: Week of June 6, 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. Rather than offering a literal interpretation or story about the dynamics you may experience during the week, imagiscopes offer an invitation into an experience of those dynamics. Perhaps they will spark a memory, a feeling, or a more intuitive recognition of the planetary powers at play in your life this week. It may be helpful to not try to “figure it out,” but rather to sit with the mood it evokes and see what imagery or fantasy of your own might emerge in response.

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 June 6 – June 12, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

Wielding 400 pounds per square inch
on wings
diving for you
head on
with the determination
of one who has
come back from near
extinction

Taurus & Taurus Rising

An unremarkable length of wood
must submit to the wounded hand
who carves, files, sands
and shapes out sibling
supple forms,
to people
a whole, diverse village

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Sandy strand in which to sink toes
deep into sand ground out of
granite, mica and quartz
This beach took millions of years to form!
And the slow seep of nearby tide
whispers of millions of years more

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Red glow
like a deep blushing peach
permeates the pulsing cavern
inside which
awakens a cradling warmth
soft loft of all eternity

Leo & Leo Rising

Arrowing to the heart of dispute
honed razor edges tilt into fine pyramidal
point, radiant hot and burning to know
when it will be launched or let go

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Muscular waves of tentacle
create a candelabra in the air
weaving like a dervish
a sacred net of care

 

Libra & Libra Rising

A tickle of words
traces the outline of your days
tangling in your hair
and prickling your back
while you ignore the facts
surrounding intuition’s haze

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Paper thin opening
closing
and opening again
fragile scales iridescent
on transparent wings
a tender tear in the fabric
of morning, births the hidden
unwanted lies

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Calling all blacksmiths!
Gather round the bellows
Let us craft a half oval nimble
that it not fetter the hoof
found upon a wild body
Let it flow into the earth
as if a naked hoof unshod

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

A tight weave of wicker, reliable
resting on wooden frame, pliable
stability relying on the spaces
between the solid
as much as the firm and time-tested

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

An open cone to catch the rain
A vee to point the way
Two arms held aloft, raised
overhead, gesture towards
the unforeseen, to welcome what’s ahead

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Warmth radiates from outside in
permeating calm, gentle reckoning
mineral and salt, oceanic infusion
into life’s rearrangement of connection and confusion

Your Sun Sign Imagiscope for the Week of May 30 – June 5, 2016

Aries & Aries Rising

She turns to the east
in one long
gliding motion
all torso and arms
with a transparent
silken shrug
abruptly thrusting
to the west
all torso and arms
trailing doubt behind certainty
a figure of ungainly grace held firm
along her strong jaw

Taurus & Taurus Rising

Sinew of stone column
whose glossy ripples
entwine one other
flow in slow motion dance
feeding upon a steady flame
whose glow knows no end

Gemini & Gemini Rising

Showers of phosphorescent light
an emerging, incendiary might
bathing the ribbons of your feet
that tether you through the night
Picking through your fur
in search of signs of wholeness
signs of sincerity
or perhaps a flag of surrender

Cancer & Cancer Rising

Silvery orb flashes
rolling beneath the surface
bursting into fleshly piscine form
breathing open-mouthed in the foam
of a surging river homeward bound
Pushing in from the vast ocean
and remembering to breathe
sweet water again

Leo & Leo Rising

A rough mane prickly and tough
encircling the choice
to be made
between fidelity to the future
or entrapment in the past
it will submit to no brush
no comb to sort the hairy mess
hanging like a prickly pear
resistant to touch yet unable
to persist in folly

Virgo & Virgo Rising

Surface tension of the pond
reflects a play of light and dark
that gives a shape to leaves and
makes the breeze
visible
under their fluttery patterning

 

Libra & Libra Rising

How could a thin sheet
be so smooth yet so starched?
Stiffly rippling beneath feet
unyielding to the question
itching in your heart,
completely confounding your thoughts

Scorpio & Scorpio Rising

Smooth as obsidian
soft curling tiny spheres
of cushiony air
float down from the heavens
inviting to rest and soothe
raw hearts carved clean
in the swift currents of mood

Sagittarius & Sagittarius Rising

Billowing up from the ground
round dome of stout build
stands sturdy and proudly
proclaims its place
in the order of things
with great capacious lungs
that masterfully  grasp the air

Capricorn & Capricorn Rising

Layers of gray, white, graphite
like liquid pouring into the skies
lifted up, lighter than air
drawn toward those diamond eyes
capable of cutting to the heart
of what rots integrity

Aquarius & Aquarius Rising

The snow slowly comes into focus
draped ‘round the sharp pencil strokes
that created this mountain
whose slopes beckon groves of trees
to climb towards the sun
and whose steady incline demands
you give voice to vision

Pisces & Pisces Rising

Glint of bent metal
bowing to the ground
growing galvanized
against cemented sentiment
that twists the heart
from its destiny
