Overnight, the Moon transited my natal Uranus (in my 12th house). About 2 hours later, Mars entered Scorpio (in my 2nd house). This afternoon, the Moon will transit my natal Pluto (in my 12th house).

I have been away from writing for the previous two evenings. On Thursday evening (the eve of Friday) I attended a concert on campus. It turned out to be not as much of a chore as I had feared. There was another university-related concert, off campus, this past evening, but I skipped it in order to finish putting comments on a draft of a final paper by one of my graduate students.

I usually write in the evening, but I decided to take some time to write this morning, as the last day of classes was yesterday and now I can spend time on my work, less impeded by the demands of preparing courses and grading piles of assignments.

Yesterday afternoon I received a FB message from a pianist and composer whose work I admire. He informed me of a fairly recent health problem he had been having. Now that he is recovering, he is becoming active as a pianist once again. He had a question of interpretation of a work by Rudhyar to run by me. I answered his question and shared with him some of the structural insights I had had into the piece. He encouraged me to resume my activity as a performer. This was a welcome and timely bit of validation and encouragement.

I have been working at home this past day. I have feeling somewhat strange. I went to gym this past afternoon and mentioned it to the trainer. He attributed my feeling strange to a cold that has been going around and encouraged me to get some Zicam. I stopped at Walgreens on the way home and picked some up. There is a gala concert on campus tonight. I feel as if I should probably stay home, since I have to get up at 5 a.m. tomorrow in order to teach and I have responsibilities on the audition day on Saturday.
