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

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

The Sun is in 20 Leo (in my 12th house): Intoxicated chickens dizzily flap their wings trying to fly. (Symbol for 21 Leo from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 15Sag46 (in my 4th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 20, The Water, letter Sīn, The Life-Giver (Al-Muḥyī)

Lunar phase: First Quarter - Action (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

About 5 minutes before izlazak Sunca (šuruk), the Moon will transit my natal Moon (in my 4th house).

I went to džuma this past day. It felt good to be there. The imam announced a book reading and signing that would be taking place after ikindija ('asr) prayer. When I got home I looked at the details online. It is an epic poem about the sufferings of the mothers of Bosnia, adapted from an earlier model from around (if I recall correctly) World War II. In the promotional announcement it was mentioned that the Serbs and Croats had celebrated their nationalist heritage in epic poems, some of which had been used as propaganda against the Bosniaks. Part of the point of the newly revised poem is to return the favor. I didn't feel compelled to attend.

I sent an introduction and friend request on FB to someone who is known as a Bosnian-American gay activist, with whom I have a couple of mutual friends. He accepted my friend request and wrote that it was nice to hear from me and that he was vacationing in Bosnia. So now I know one out Bosnian person.
