Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Abraham
Lunar phase: Gibbous - Overcoming (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
The Sun has passed through 0 Scorpio and is now in 1 Scorpio (in my 2nd house): A crowded sightseeing bus on a city street. A delicate bottle of perfume lies broken, releasing its fragrance. (Symbols for 1 and 2 Scorpio from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
Overnight, the Moon entered its Gibbous phase, whose keyword is Overcoming. This morning, the Moon entered my 7th house.
I fasted for Ashura (Jevmu-l-ašura) and that went fairly easily. I was fatigued after supper, but that may have been due in part to my having fasted during the day.
I am beginning to think about my upcoming trip to St. Louis for a music theory conference. I haven't been to the North American conference in 8 years, so I'm planning to pace myself. I chose to get a rental car, even though the university won't reimburse me for it, so that I can have more freedom of movement while I am there. St. Louis has the largest Bosnian community in the U.S., and there is a beautiful mosque there, which I plan to visit. I would also like to check out a couple of Bosnian restaurants while I am there.
