The Opening Prayer (from Ibn 'Arabi's Awrad al-usbu')

Planet: Jupiter

Prophet: Moses

Moon phase: Full - Fulfillment

The Sun is in 16 Taurus: A symbolical battle between "swords" and "torches" (Sabian symbol for 17 Taurus)

The Moon is in its 21st mansion, which extends from 17 Sagittarius 8 to 0 Capricorn. This is the seventh mansion within the third seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.

In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 21st mansion signifies The Earth, whose letter is ص and whose Divine Name is The Death-Giver, الْمُمِيتُ.

In the traditional Arabic system, the 21st mansion is known as Al-Baldah, or The City. Its keywords are defeat, destructive enmity, internal conflict, people or forces at odds, division. Its image is that of a man having two faces, with one facing forward and one facing behind. The angel of this mansion is Bethnael.

In the afternoon the Moon will enter Capricorn, thus initiating the fourth seven-fold cycle of lunar mansions.

Went to a meh faculty-student party this past afternoon/early evening. This academic year began with our cat, Misty, appearing to be ill and then with our having her euthenized within a few days of her apparent illness. In the morning of what is now yesterday in the Islamic calendar, I gave my last final exam. During the day my sister-in-law had to have her dog euthenized. As the academic year began, so it has ended.
