Ponedjeljak 21 Džumade-l-uhra 1438

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

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

The Sun is in 29 Pisces (in my 7th house) A majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up, begins to look like it. (Symbol for 30 Pisces from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 22Sag26 (in my 4th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 21, The Earth, letter Ṣād, The Death-Giver (Al-Mumīt)

Lunar phase: Disseminating - Demonstration (phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

Haindl Tarot: Father of Swords in the South - Ra

About a half hour before izlazak Sunca (šuruk), the Sun will enter Aries (in my 7th house). About a half hour before noon, the Moon will enter Capricorn (in my 4th house). A couple of minutes before noon, the Moon will enter its Last Quarter phase, whose keyword is Re-orientation. (The Moon will be at 0Cap13 in my 4th house and the Sun will be at 0Ari13 in my 7th house.)

A day of working at home.

I have been feeling inclined to reacquaint myself with some of the NAJ practices (wird, salawat, personally prescribed zikr) and to contemplate the 15 years between the time I left Atlanta to take my job here and where I am now. One way of interpreting my (mis)adventures in the Amma group is to see it as an attempt to realize the universalist aspect of Nur's work at a time when NAJ seemed a bit confining, limited, or lacking in spiritual power. Since I have returned to Islamic practices (first in 2010 and, again, in 2013), I have been regarding myself as someone with a past in Sufism, though currently unaffiliated. While it has been nice to make some friends in another tariqat, I am not feeling strongly inclined to try to become a member of it. Instead, I have been feeling inclined to resume some specifically NAJ practices and then see where that leads, if anywhere.
