Hu design

Ponedjeljak, 8 Redžeb, 1436

Planet: Moon

Prophet: Adam

The Sun is in 6 Taurus: The woman of Samaria at the ancestral well (Sabian symbol for 7 Taurus)

The Moon is in 18 Leo: A houseboat party (Sabian symbol for 19 Leo)

Overnight, the Moon will enter my 12th house.

In the early morning, the Moon will enter its 12th mansion, The Second Sky, Sky of Jupiter and House of Moses, whose letter is ض and whose Divine Name is The Knowing, الْعَلِيمُ.

This past day has not been as productive as I might have hoped. It seems that I am still trying to pace myself so that I can make it through to the end of classes without dropping the ball on anything cruically important.

One thing I have been thinking about today is that, just as the Moon traverses one of its mansions approximately once per day, so the Sun traverses a degree of the zodiac approximately once per day. Ibn 'Arabi quite obviously inscribed a theological cycle of creation and "return" (as in the Path of Return to which Lex Hixon referred). In a loosely analogous way, Rudhyar interpreted the succession of psychically received Sabian symbols as a structure of cycles within cycles, and not merely a random, linear succession of images associated with the zodiacal degrees.

Within the next monthly cycle, I may explore the traditional symbols associated with the mansions, to see if they may reveal an underlying cyclic structure.
