Planet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Saturn

Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Abraham

The Sun is in 1 Leo (in my 11th house): Responding to an epidemic, a doctor confidently lances an infection on a crying child's leg. (Symbol for 2 Leo from Martin Goldsmith, The Zodiac by Degrees, 2nd ed.)

The Moon has passed through the 1st decan of Scorpio (in my 2nd house): distrust of the obvious; deception of the senses. It is currently in the 2nd decan of Scorpio (still in my 2nd house): dropping useless ideas and emotions; emotional purification. (Keywords from Martin Goldsmith, Moon Phases: A Symbolic Key)

The Sun and Moon are in their 8th phase (the Moon is between 90 and 120 degrees ahead of the Sun): The Actress. The first act of a romantic comedy: a beautiful woman, wearing a white evening dress and a diamond tiara, is descending a staircase into a garden. There she encounters her two suitors. One is a gardener, who kneels on one leg and offers her a flower. The other is a handsome but haughty aristocrat, who looks intently into the distance. The lady startles him a with a witty remark. (Symbol from Goldsmith, Moon Phases)

In a few minutes, the Moon will enter my 3rd house. Later this evening, it will transit my natal Neptune (in my 3rd house). Early in the morning, Mercury will transit my natal North Node (in my 11th house).

Went to jum'ah during the past day. I hadn't been for two weeks, as I was away the preivous Friday. It was less crowded, probably because Ramadan is over. At first I felt a little strange being there. Eventually I worked on talking myself out of that. Sometimes I feel that queer Muslims, hippie Sufis, etc., do themselves a disservice by ghettoizing themselves too much. I really do like congregational prayer when I can manage to get there.

The writing of the program notes for my recital is coming along, as is my level of performance of the music itself. I'm also continuing to work on my solar return chart for next year.
