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

Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Aaron & John

The Sun is in 26 Cancer (in my 11th house): A violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes. (Symbol for 27 Cancer from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 16Cap19 (in my 4th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 23, The Vegetables, letter Thā, The Nourisher (Ar-Razzāq)

About 15 minutes before midnight, Mercury will transit my natal Mars (in my 11th house). Overnight, the Moon will enter my 5th house. About 2 hours after ikindija ('asr), the Moon will enter its Full Moon phase, whose keyword is Fulfillment. (The Moon will be at 27Cap40 in my 5th house and the Sun will be 27Can40 in my 11th house.)

In working through the material on Pluto (currently reading through the introductory material in Jeff Green's first Pluto book), a theme that keeps coming to mind is that, yes, I was disappointed and even humiliated in my attempts to stabilize the upwellings of unconscious energy I was experiencing when I was active in the Amma organization--by committing to the organizational structure and by attaching to friends within the organization--but these kinds of impasses seem to be characteristic of the search to find conscious understanding of the needs of the (for lack of a better term) Soul, which has its own trajectory and its own logic and its own timetable. On the one hand, I was trying consciously to make the most of the experiences that spontaneously came my way, rather than to let them dissipate or be driven back underground by the demands of day-to-day living. In some respects, day-to-day life did manage to drive the experiences back underground. On the other hand, the temporary experiences of elevation and/or of deviation from my usualy routines did manage to leave some traces. Now that I have turned my attention to the possibility of inviting some of this energy back into my life, I am able to experience some of the quality of those experiences without being so caught up in lamenting that the stimuli that gave rise to them in the past are now gone.
