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

Planet: Sun

Prophet: Idris (Enoch)

Moon phase: Disseminating - demonstration

The Sun is in 19 Taurus: Wisps of winglike clouds streaming across the sky (Sabian symbol for 20 Taurus)

The Moon is in its 24th mansion, which extends from 25 Capricorn 42 to 8 Aquarius 34. This is the third mansion within the fourth seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.

In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 24th mansion signifies The Animals, whose letter is ذ and whose Divine Name is The Humbler, الْمُذِلُّ.

In the traditional Arabic system, the 24th mansion is known as As-Sad As-Su'ud, or The Luckiest of the Lucky. Its keywords are multiplication of opportunities, good luck and increase prevailing, fertile proliferation. Its image is that of a woman breastfeeding. The angel of this mansion is Abrinael.

Overnight, the Moon transited my natal South Node and Saturn.

I am writing in the morning since yesterday and into the evening of this day were taken up with commencement and related celebrations. In line with the traditional associations for the lunar mansion that was in effect through most of the previous day, and that will remain in effect until later this morning, it was a time in which opportunities and wishes for future success were prominent themes. This day began with an evening meal at a restaurant, to which I had been invited by the family of a student who was graduating after a six-year undergraduate career in a dual-degree program. He is a triplet, and both of his siblings were present, as well as his mother, his maternal grandmother, his father, the father's girlfriend, his paternal grandfather, another friend of the family, another professor and his husband, and my husband and me. It was a nice end to a very long day.

Later this morning I will travel to the next state to spend some time at a teahouse with the Qadiri-Rifai dervishes that I have not seen since January.
