Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Moses
Lunar phase: Balsamic - Release (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
The Sun is in 17 Virgo (in my 1st house): A ouija board. (Symbol for 18 Virgo from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
In the afternoon, the Moon will enter my 12th house.
It is interesting that the ouija board is the Sabian symbol for the first full degree within my 1st house, since it was used as a stimulus for James Merrill in his major poetic work, The Light at Sandover.
After writing yesterday evening, I checked the FB page for the local Bosnian mosque and found at that Sulejman Bugari's appearance had been cancelled. I also saw on Bugari's FB page that he will be broadcasting from Sarajevo on the evening of the 10th.
That took some pressure off of my schedule, such that I took more time on campus than I otherwise might have done. I also decided to go to NYC to hear a series of concerts devoted to orchestral works of John Luther Adams in October. I had considered this previously, but rejected the idea because of prohibitively high hotel costs in NYC. It occurred to me, however, that I could stay more cheaply in Stamford. This would make for a shorter train ride as well. The first concert is on a Wednesday and the other two on Friday and Saturday night. Staying overnight will prevent my getting home at 3 a.m. on Saturday and then turning around to start the whole process over again for the Saturday evening concert.
I am just sitting down to grade a pile of papers. There will be more papers to grade tomorrow. A former student is meeting me for lunch, however, so at least I'll have a break for some social time.
