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

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

Lunar phase: Disseminating - Demonstration (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

The Sun is in 7 Scorpio (in my 2nd house): A calm lake bathed in moonlight. (Symbol for 8 Scorpio from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

A couple of hours before Fajr (Sabah), the Moon will enter Cancer (in my 10th house).

During the past day, I attended about 2.5 hours of presentations and had a 2-hour coffee with a former student. I went back this evening for another 1.5 hours of presentations.

During the past afternoon I went to jum'ah, and it was nice to do that again. (I hadn't been since school began.)

For dinner I went to another Bosnian restaurant. This one was more like a cafe than the previous two. There were no patrons at the tables when I arrived: just a couple of guys hanging out at the bar area, talking with the waiter. The place smelled like cigarette smoke. Bosnian programs were on the TV. One of them was a reality show in which lots people sat around a huge table and shouted at each other. I had the goulash and noodles. At first I was dismayed to discover that the noodles looked like elbow macaroni rather than the spaetzle I had been expecting. But the meat was tender, the sauce was great, and the noodles were subtly seasoned. It reminded me of food I had had in Hungary and Slovakia. It was inexpensive and unpretentious. The serving size was just right. They were out of desserts, so I finished with a Bosnian coffee. It was a lot of fun.

And so, to bed.
