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

Planet: Mercury

Prophet: Jesus

Moon phase: First Quarter - action

The Sun is in 5 Gemini: Workmen drilling for oil (Sabian symbol for 6 Gemini)

The Moon is in its 14th mansion, which extends from 17 Virgo 8 to 0 Libra. This is the seventh mansion within the second seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.

In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 14th mansion signifies The Fourth Sky, which is the Heart of the World, Sky of Sun and House of Enoch, whose letter is ن and whose Divine Name is The Light, النُّورُ.

In the traditional Arabic system, the 14th mansion is known as As-Simak, The Unarmed. Its keywords are severance, breaking apart of restrictive or inappropriate bonds, dissolution. Its image is that of a dog holding his tail in his mouth. The angel of this mansion is Ergediel.

The Moon will enter Libra late in the afternoon, thus beginning the third seven-fold cycle of its mansions.

The toilets have been installed successfully.

The author of the book I have about the lunar mansions posted a beautiful entry in his Yahoo group today about his devotional approach to astrological magic.
