Hu design

Petak/Džuma, 9 Ramazan, 1436

The Opening Prayer (from Ibn 'Arabi's Awrad al-usbu')

Planet: Venus

Prophet: Joseph

Moon phase: First Quarter - action

The Sun is in 4 Cancer: At a railroad crossing, a car is wrecked by a train (Sabian symbol for 5 Cancer).

The Moon is in its 16th mansion, which extends from 12 Libra 51 to 25 Libra 42. This is the second mansion within the third seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.

In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 16th mansion signifies The Sixth Sky, Sky of Mercury and House of Jesus, whose letter is ط and whose Divine Name is The Numberer, .الْمُحْصِىُ

In the traditional Arabic system, the 16th mansion is known as Az-Zubana, The Claws. Its keywords are He Who Counts, the merchant, transaction and success, balance and wealth. Its image is that of a man seated upon a throne and holding a scale in his hands. The angel of this mansion is Azeruel.

Overnight, the Moon will transit my natal Mercury (in my 2nd house). In the early afternoon, the Moon will enter Scorpio (also in my 2nd house).

Worked at home again during the day. For some reason, I became curious to see if I could find a short film online that had initiated my fascination with 20th-century music. I found it and learned more about the performer and about the director. I also received a phone call today from the Department Head, who requested that I move to a different office in order to accommodate some shuffling of space that is going on in the department. Fortunately, everything has been moved out the of the offices already, since the floors are being retiled this summer. I complied, as I have no particular investment in the cinderblock box that comprised my previous office. I will simply switch to another cinderblock box. I told the Department Head, "As long as there continue to be a salary and health benefits, I don't care."
