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

Planet: Moon

Prophet: Adam

Moon phase: Disseminating - demonstration

The Sun is in 20 Taurus: A finger pointing to a line in an open book (Sabian symbol for 21 Taurus)

The Moon is in its 25th mansion, which extends from 8 Aquarius 34 to 21 Aquarius 25. This is the fourth mansion within the fourth seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.

In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 25th mansion signifies The Angels, whose letter is ف and whose Divine Name is The Strong, الْقَوِىُّ.

In the traditional Arabic system, the 25th mansion is known as As-Sa'd Al-Akhbiyah, or Lucky Star of Hidden Things. Its keywords are expansion, spreading forth, preservation, nurture, growth and fruition. Its image is that of a man planting. The angel of this mansion is Aziel.

In the morning, the Moon will enter my 6th house. Shortly after that, it will enter its Last Quarter phase, whose keyword is re-orientation.

Late this past morning, I joined the Qadiri-Rifai dervishes for a reading of portions of a treatise by Jilani. The rest of the day was relatively relaxed, with my chipping away at several projects.
