Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Moses
The Sun is in 15 Virgo (in my 12th house): In the zoo, children are brought face to face with an orang-utang. (Symbol for 16 Virgo from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

In about 15 minutes, the Moon will enter Sagittarius (in my 3rd house). In the morning, Venus will enter my 2nd house.
Went to campus today. Some of the freshman homework is good, some disappointing.
I have been having experiences of heart-opening and emotionalism as I recall memories of this past weekend at the Bosnian conference. This is confirming for me that this is a context that it has been worthwhile for me to pursue. It seems to be bringing about some spontaneous experiences of initiation. Few of my experiences in Sufism have had this same level of power.
