The Sun is in 5 Taurus: Cantilever bridge across a deep gorge (Sabian symbol for 6 Taurus)
The Moon is in 6 Leo: The constellations of stars shine brilliantly in the night sky (Sabian symbol for 7 Leo)
Early in the morning, the Moon will transit my natal Mars.
Overnight, the Moon will enter its 11th mansion, The First Sky, Sky of Saturn, Sky of the Visited House and "The Lotus of the Extreme Limit," House of Abraham, whose letter is ى and whose Divine Name is The Lord, الرَّبُّ.
The conference was a qualified success. While I was struggling with fatigue for most of it, I attended almost as many papers as I had intended to, and I was able to socialize a bit without it feeling too forced. I did, however, spend some (to me necessary) time hanging out with myself and reading. When I was on campus for an extended period on Wednesday, I treated myself to a cookie and to a spontaneous book purchase at the university bookstore. When I browsed the philosophy section, I came across Berardi's latest, about which I had read an interview online. It is proving to be approachable and rather addictive. The moments when I was able to take my eye off the clock and let myself drift into reading (i.e., at both breakfast and lunch) were among my best moments of the past day. Also, yesterday evening, since I was alone in the hotel room with access to a TV, I watched the Diane Sawyer/Bruce Jenner interview. It was actually OK, and the advertisements and the TV news were fascinating in their grotesquerie.
