Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Jesus
The Sun is in 14 Taurus (in my 9th house): Head covered with a rakish silk hat, muffled against the cold, a man braves a storm. (Symbol for 15 Taurus from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
The Moon is at 4Ari34 (in my 7th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 1, The First Intellect, The Pen, letter ’Alif, Divine Essence (Al-Badī‘)
Lunar phase: Balsamic - Release (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
In the morning, the Moon will enter my 8th house.
This past day I worked on a couple of projects and took care of some financial business. I also participated in a conference call from campus.
I have finished my reading of the 9th sura of the Qur'an and have moved on to the 10th. One of the 'ayats I read today was the following:
On je Taj Koji je učinio Sunce svjetlošću, a Mjesec sjajem, odredivši mu faze da biste znali brojati godine, te za računanje. Samo sa Istinom to je Allah stvorio -- ljudima koji shvaćaju On potanko izlaže dokaze. U smjenjivanju noći i dana, te u onome što na Nebesima i Zemlji Allah stvorio je sigurno ima znamenja za bogobojazne.
He it is who has made the sun a [source of] radiant light and the moon a light [reflected], and has determined for it phases so that you might know how to compute the years and to measure [time]. None of this has God created without [an inner] truth. Clearly does He spell out these messages unto people of [innate] knowledge: for, verily, in the alternating of night and day, and in all that God has created in the heavens and on earth there are messages for people who are conscious of Him! (10:5-6)
