Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Joseph
The Sun is still in 22 Cancer (in my 11th house): The meeting of a literary society. (Symbol for 23 Cancer from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
The Moon is at 25Sco49 (in my 3rd house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 19, The Air, letter Zāy, The Living (Al-Ḥayy)
Lunar phase: First Quarter - Action (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
In about 20 minutes, the Moon will transit my natal Venus (in my 3rd house). About an hour and 15 minutes from now, Venus will transit my natal North Node (in my 11th house). About 15 minutes before shurooq, the Moon will enter Sagittarius (in my 3rd house). In the afternoon, Mercury will transit my natal North Node (in my 11th house).
Doing some more work on the Mark Jones Pluto course. One of the things that I'm trying to accept is that different people find different stimuli to be effective in bringing up energy from the unconscious to the conscious mind. Like his mentor Jeff Green, Jones references Yogananda, for whom I have no use. (Rudhyar saw through Yogananda in the 1920s and satirized a figure much like him in a novel from late in that decade.) I also dislike the fact that Jones references David Hawkins, who was referenced by another astrologer that I ultimately came to dismiss in the past. But I am feeling that this work may serve as an introduction to Green's work--which has been on my reading list for some time--and also purports to teach me some techniques and offers some direct contact with Jones. So, as I wrote last time, we'll see.
