Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Moses
The Sun is in 27 Libra (in my 2nd house) A man becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting him. (Symbol for 28 Libra from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
The Moon is at 21Gem03 (in my 10th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 7, The Throne, letter Qā, The All-Encompassing (Al-Muḥīṭ)
Lunar phase: Disseminating - Demonstration (Phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
In the late morning, the Moon will enter Cancer (in my 10th house).
In the morning, I plan to meet my brother in New Haven for breakfast. He has flown out from Chicago for a conference in Amherst and is staying with friends in New Haven tonight. We plan to spend some time hanging out and then he will leave for Amherst.
Work has dominated my life, although I am beginning to acknowledge that, because of my efforts, I should be able to participate in some activities over the next couple of weekends and then attend a conference in Vancouver without feeling too scattered. My cold symptoms are also subsiding.
I went for Rosen on Tuesday. I hadn't been for about 5 weeks, since the Rosen worker was at a conference last week, which would have been week 4 for me. The work seems to have gone rather deep this time. I was reluctant to leave for work this past morning. I am slowly getting better, however, at giving the job what I think it requires while I'm there and then getting back to my own space energetically when I leave campus.
In general, although it brings me to a place of frustration and sadness that I so often have to defer the things I would rather be doing--and how I would rather be being--during the semester, it is getting easier to remember experiences and feeling states that are other than work-related. When I find openings in my schedule and in my energetic state, I try to enact small-scale interventions in which I turn away from work-consciousness and toward "places" I would rather be in my life.
