The Sun is in 20 Pisces (in my 7th house) Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white lamb. (Symbol for 21 Pisces from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 1Vir56 (in my 12th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 12, The Second Sky, Sky of Jupiter and House of Moses, letter Ḍād, The Knowing (Al-‘Alīm)

Haindl Tarot: Mother of Wands in the East - Kali

Overnight, the Moon will transit my natal Uranus (in my 12th house). In the afternoon, the Moon will transit my natal Pluto (in my 12th house).

Snow day this past day: classes were canceled. I took the opportunity to catch up on some work for a search committee I am chairing and to tie up some loose ends regarding course prep. I also got my haircut and began the process of cleaning my bathroom.

This past day I took the second weekly dose of the medication for osteoporosis. I seemed to tolerate it better this time. Being at home helped, as did getting up from bed a little later than would have been the case, had I needed to be on campus in time for class.

On another topic, one of the reasons I find the Haindl Tarot interesting is his use of deities and mythical and historical figures from different cultures in the court cards. Along with viewing the cards daily, I have been reading Rachel Pollock's commentary on them. I was pleasantly surprised that she did such a good job in her gloss on Kali.
