Lunar journal Jan-Feb 2015 day 30 (Rabi' ath-Thani 28 1436)

Today is an interesting day astronomically, as there will be a New Moon in the last minute of the last degree of Aquarius. Within seconds of that conjunction of the Sun and Moon, the Moon will enter Pisces, with the Sun following a couple of minutes later.

In terms of my individual chart, the Moon entered my 6th house early this morning. Later tonight, the Moon will transit my natal Jupiter.

I have been doing a little bit of research on the Hijri calendar, including the bases for its variants. For the next Hijri month, I will follow the numbering of the days given by the IslamicFinder Athan software.

I will also include information regarding the transits of the Sun to places in my natal chart.

I have also been reading a website devoted to the lunar mansions, which makes references to Hellestic and Arabic sources, to Ibn 'Arabi, and to the Yeatses (W.B. and his wife, George). Yeats's A Vision includes some material on the mansions. I am close to determining how the Divine Names used by Ibn 'Arabi for the mansions relate to the 99 Names in one of the commonly used orderings of them.
