Later this evening, Venus will transit my natal Uranus (in my 12th house). In the morning, the Moon will transit my natal Sun (in my 2nd house). In the afternoon, the Moon will enter my 3rd house.

Rosen this past day. Still getting over the cold. Spent some time prepping counterpoint class. I spent a little more time than necessary doing the exercise that is due tomorrow, but it felt good to work at keeping my skills fresh. There seems to be this obsession in academia that one is supposed to scurry around and give everyone face time instead of cultivating one's own skill and interest in one's own subject matter. How else is one supposed to have anything worthwhile to teach (not that anyone cares, anyway, since the students don't want to do the work and one's colleagues are interested only in their own work)?
