Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Moses
Lunar phase: New Moon - Emergence (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
The Sun has passed through 22 Virgo (in my 1st house): A lion tamer displays his skill and character. (Symbol for 23 Virgo from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala) The Sun is currently in 23 Virgo (in my 1st house): Mary and her little lamb. (Symbol for 24 Virgo from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
Late last evening, the Moon transited my natal Mercury (in my 2nd house). This past morning, the Moon entered Scorpio (in my 2nd house). About a half hour before Fajr (Zora/Sabah), the Moon will transit my natal Sun (in my 2nd house). Shortly before Shurooq (Izlazak Sunca), the Moon will enter its Crescent phase, whose keyword is Expansion. Later in the morning, the Moon will enter my 3rd house. In the early afternoon, it will transit my natal Neptune (in my 3rd house).
