Subota, 10 Ramazan, 1436

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

Planet: Saturn

Prophet: Abraham

Moon phase: First Quarter - action

The Sun is in 5 Cancer: Game birds feathering their nests (Sabian symbol for 6 Cancer).

The Moon is in its 17th mansion, which extends from 25 Libra 42 to 8 Scorpio 34. This is the third mansion within the third seven-fold cycle of the 28 mansions.

In Ibn 'Arabi's listing, the 17th mansion signifies The Inferior Sky, Sky of the Moon and House of Adam, whose letter is د and whose Divine Name is The Evident, .الْمُبِينُ

In the traditional Arabic system, the 17th mansion is known as Al-Iklil, The Crown. Its keywords are protection of resources, guardianship, security against predatory beings or forces. Its image is that of a monkey in an iron seal, holding his hands above his shoulders. The angel of this mansion is Adriel.

In the morning, the Moon will transit my natal Sun (in my 2nd house). In the late morning, it will enter my 3rd house, and in the afternoon it will transit my natal Neptune (in my 3rd house).

Well, this past day was the day of the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage. I wasn't quite ready to jump on the celebratory bandwagon with memes and selfies, but I did share a couple of articles that I thought provided a more nuanced picture.
