Hu design

Petak/Džuma 4 Ševval 1437

Planet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Venus

Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Joseph

The Sun is in 16 Cancer (in my 10th house): The unfoldment of multilevel potentialities issuing from an original germ. (Symbol for 17 Cancer from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 1Vir25 (in my 12th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 12, The Second Sky, Sky of Jupiter and House of Moses, letter Ḍād, The Knowing (Al-‘Alīm)

Lunar phase: Crescent - Expansion (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

A few minutes ago, the Moon entered its Crescent Phase, whose keyword is Expansion. (The Moon was at 1Vir18 in my 12th house and the Sun was at 16Can18 in my 10th house.) Overnight, the Moon will transit my natal Uranus (in my 12th house). About a half hour before podne (zuhr), Mercury will enter my 11th house. About 10 minutes before ikindija ('asr), the Moon will transit my natal Pluto (in my 12th house).

I met with a former fellow grad student for lunch today in New Haven. It was good to catch up.

The latest issue of The Mountain Astrologer arrived today. One of the articles is by an astrologer who is also a Psychosynthesis therapist. One of his books is on Pluto, Uranus, and the lunar nodes. Coincidentally, the Moon is transiting my natal Uranus and Pluto within the coming day. This article reminded me of a book by Dane Rudhyar that a local astrologer gave me, Astrology and the Modern Psyche, which includes a section on Psychosynthesis. When I opened the book, I discovered that it had been signed by the author and also included Rudhyar's professional card as "Consultant for transpersonal re-valuations."
