This evening the Moon will enter Libra.

At the same time, the Moon will enter its 15th mansion, The Fifth Sky, Sky of Venus and House of Joseph, whose letter is ر and whose Divine Name is The Form-Giver (#13 of the Asma ul-Husna), الْمُصَوِّرُ.

Just as I was (probably quite literally) saying to myself that I really didn't feel like going to last night's concert, I got a text from the student that I sometimes socialize with, asking if I would be going. I wrote back that I was feeling ambivalent, but if I went I would look for him. I ate supper before my husband got home so that I would have plenty of time to get to campus for the concert. He came home a little earlier than anticipated because one of his groups didn't meet. In between praying maghrib and 'isha, I decided that I really didn't feel like going out and would rather stay home (and warm--it was freezing out last night) and get to bed early.

Today there is a colloquium that I am obligated to go to. The thought of steeling myself to deal with colleagues is weighing me down, but at least I didn't force myself to go out last night as well. That would likely have pushed me over the edge into getting sick again.

Just a few more minutes until shuruq, so I'll sign off and do wudu.
