The Moon is in its 18th mansion, which extends from 8 Scorpio 34 to 21 Scorpio 25. This is the fourth mansion within the third seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.
In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 18th mansion signifies Sphere of the Ether and the Meteors, Center of Fire, whose letter is ت and whose Divine Name is The Seizer, الْقَابِضُ.
In the traditional Arabic system, the 18th mansion is known as Al-Qalb, The Heart. Its keywords are He Who Seizes, poison and medicines, Angel of Death, protection against inimical forces. Its image is that of an adder holding its tail above its head. The angel of this mansion is Egibiel.
The Moon has just transited my natal Sun (at 8 Scorpio 22). Overnight, the Moon will enter my 3rd house. In the morning it will transit my natal Neptune.
The trip to NYC was successful, although it was tiring. I dozed off a little bit on the train to New Haven (11:26 p.m from Grand Central) and managed to get home at about 2:30 a.m. Spent some time driving around rural Connecticut with my husband during this past day. Had tea at an English tea house and then went to a winery where he did a tasting.
