Lunar phase: New Moon - Emergence (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
The Sun has passed through 19 and is now in 20 Sagittarius (in my 4th house): In an old-fashioned northern village men cut the ice of a frozen pond for use in the summer. A child and a dog wearing borrowed sunglasses. (Symbols for 20 and 21 Sagittarius from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
Overnight, the Moon entered Capricorn (in my 4th house). About 5 minutes after that, Venus transited my natal Sun (in my 2nd house). This afternoon, the Sun will transit my natal Moon (in my 4th house).
Having finished a run of 12 consecutive days on campus since the end of the Thanksgiving break, I am ready for a weekend (which includes grading quizzes, writing another letter of recommendation, and reading a second draft of a paper plus another, finished paper that was turned in early). Eventually, I will have more time to think about a conference proposal that I'm challenging myself to submit, which is due by Jan 15.
