Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Abraham
The Sun is in 10 Taurus (in my 8th house): A woman watering flowers in her garden. (Symbol for 11 Taurus from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
The Moon is at 15Aqu41 (in my 5th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Having passed through mansion 24, The Animals, letter Dha, The Humbler (Al-Mudhill), the Moon is now in mansion 25, The Angels, letter Fa, the Strong (Al-Qawī)
Lunar phase: Last Quarter - Re-orientation (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
At about 8:30 in the evening, Venus entered Taurus (in my 8th house). Interestingly, at that time, I was spending time with a former student and his family, attending the New York premiere of a monodrama based on Don Delillo's 9/11-themed novel, Falling Man, composed by Ken Fuchs, the faculty composer in my department. My former student was born with the Sun in 0 Taurus. Later in the evening, the Moon entered its Last Quarter phase, whose keyword is Re-orientation. (The Moon was in Aqarius in my 5th house and the Sun was in Taurus in my 8th house.) This afternoon, the Moon will enter my 6th house.
The journey to New York was a bit complicated, since the second of two fatalities involving Amtrak trains in Connecticut on the same day occurred just before we were about to leave New Haven. We checked online and decided to try to travel from Stamford instead, which worked out.
