Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Jesus
The Sun has passed through 21 Virgo and is now in 22 Virgo (in my 1st house): A royal coat of arms enriched with precious stones. A lion tamer displays his skill and character. (Symbols for 22 and 23 Virgo from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
The Moon is at 27Aqu05 (in my 6th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): the Moon has passed through mansion 25, The Angels, letter Fā, The Strong (Al-Qawī) and is now in mansion 26, The Genii (al-jinn), letter Bā, The Subtle (Al-Laṭīf).
Lunar phase: Gibbous - Overcoming (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
Overnight, the Moon entered my 6th house.
I am writing late today because I didn't manage to write this past evening.
Taught again today. It seems to be going reasonably well, but I had an interruption in my sleep last night and was a little out of it on campus today.
Rosen yesterday. It went well, but it is disappointing when the stress of trying to stay focused on work seems to undo the effects of the Rosen work. I guess that is part of the process: learning how to come back into a more positive space after having drifted into a stress response.
There are a couple of ways in which I managed to open up some more positive spaces for myself within the past day. During the Rosen session I had some visions of the vacation that my husband and I took in August. Since we returned, it has felt as if the pressure has been on to focus on the needs of people at campus. Recently I had been trying to get back to some of the astrological reading I had been doing on vacation but had abandoned since. Once I had the visions of the vacation during the Rosen session, that seemed to reinforce that impulse to return to those readings. After the session I treated myself to a chai latte at a cafe near where I go for the Rosen work. I resumed reading an astrological e-book that I had synched to my phone and that helped to bring me into a better space than obsessing over the next thing I needed to plan for work. Then, this morning on the way to campus I was listening to some Bosnian ilahis in the car and that brought back an emotional space similar to the one I experienced during the Bosnian conference. That also helped me to feel more grounded and more whole.
