The Moon is in its 10th mansion, which extends from 25 Cancer 42 to 8 Leo 34. This is the third mansion within the second seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.
In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 10th mansion signifies The Sphere of Stations, Sky of Fixed Stars, Sun of Paradise and Roof of Hell, whose letter is ش and whose Divine Name is The Powerful, الْمُقْتَدِرُ.
In the traditional Arabic system, the 10th mansion is known as Al-Jabhah, or The Brow. Its keywords are power, success, aid, healing, recovery, improvement, help, increasing strength. Its image is that of the head of a lion. The angel of this mansion is Ardesiel.
Overnight, the Moon will transit my natal North Node. In the early afternoon, it will transit my natal Mars.
In the morning my husband and I will leave to pay a visit to his mother's gravesite for the first time since her memorial service last June. We will then proceed to his sister's for a Memorial Day weekend picnic.
