At about 45 minutes after midnight, the Moon will transit my natal Mars (in my 11th house).

I picked the first candidate for the faculty search up at the airport, took him to lunch, and dropped him off at his inn. Then I came home and fed the cat, used the bathroom, prayed, and went to the gym. Came home, cooked dinner, graded some papers, prayed, and now I need to finish cleaning up the kitchen and get to bed. I'm very tired, but I continue to think about the things I have begun to explore through the lens of Neptune and through Steven Forrest's recent book on Neptune.

Planet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Moon

Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Adam

The Sun is in 5 Aries (in my 7th house): A square, with one of its sides brightly illumined. (Symbol for 6 Aries from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 23Can12 (in my 11th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 9, The Sphere without Stars, The Zodical Towers, letter Jīm, The Independent, The Rich (Al-Ghanī)

Lunar phase: First Quarter - Action (phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

In the morning, the Moon wil enter Leo (in my 11th house). In the early afternoon, the Moon will transit my natal North Node (in my 11th house).

After writing yesterday evening, I decided to consult Robert Hand's book on transits. When I looked more closely at when Neptune began to transit my 6th house, it became clearer to me that the series of losses I had experienced over the last 10 years, as well as the feeling of working hard at my job--without feeling that I was advancing in my career or receiving much in the way of recognition or ego-satisfaction--fit a pattern that was typical of Neptune transiting the 6th house. It helped me better to value the efforts I have been making, even in the absence of (what seem to me to be) tangible results. Today I started looking at Steven Forrest's book on Neptune, which I had purchased as soon as it came out in 2016, but had not yet begun to read.

The Sun is in 1 Aries (in my 7th house): A comedian reveals human nature. (Symbol for 2 Aries from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

Lunar phase: Crescent - Expansion (phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

Overnight, the Moon will enter Gemini (in my 9th house).

Even though I don't "have time," I decided to start re-reading Rudhyar's The Pulse of Life. This time through, I am noticing more clearly how he makes use of elements of philosophy and psychology. Evidently, he is an author whose works bear re-reading as one learns more about the foundations on which they are based.

Planet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Mercury

Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Jesus

The Sun is in 19 Capricorn (in my 5th house): A hidden choir is singing during a religious service. (Symbol for 20 Capricorn from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

I have been away from writing for a while. As I looked back on the date I last posted, I realized it was the 10th anniversary of my mother's death. Even though that hasn't been a big deal in the foreground of my life, it may be the case that it has had the effect of putting some aspects of my life on hold temporarily.

I have resumed reading Erin Sullivan's Saturn in Transit. I have the sense that there is constructive potential in my current situation, if I can just keep letting go of the idea that I'm supposed to be having fun or social enjoyments at this point in my life.


Peace,

KH
