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

Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Aaron & John

Lunar phase: New Moon - Emergence (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

The Sun is in 24 Leo (in my 12th house): A visionary bedouin leader, standing next to his resting camel at an oasis, looks across the desert towards the distant towers of a fabled city, which he hopes to reach in the coming week. (Symbol for 25 Leo from Martin Goldsmith, The Zodiac by Degrees, 2nd ed.) A large camel is seen crossing a vast and forbidding desert. (Symbol for 25 Leo from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

Early in the afternoon, the Moon will enter its Crescent phase, whose keyword is Expansion. Later in the afternoon, the Moon will enter my 2nd house.

Today--that is, the coming day (the 18th)--would have been my mother's 79th birthday. This past day, I sent out some announcements about my forthcoming recital and spoke with a graduate assistant on the phone. Another graduate student has asked me to participate in a performance of large ensemble percussion work--Inuksuit by John Luther Adams--that is usually performed outdoors. That is supposed to take place about a week before my recital. It seems that, after a late spring and summer (so far) spent in near-isolation, I am making a transition to a more public existence.
