Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Jesus
The Sun is in 12 Taurus (in my 9th house): A porter carrying heavy baggage. (Symbol for 13 Taurus from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
The Moon is at 11Leo53 (in my 11th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 11, The First Sky, Sky of Saturn, Sky of the Visited House and of the “Lotus of the Extreme Limit,” House of Abraham, letter Yā, The Lord (Ar-Rabb)
Lunar phase: Crescent - Expansion (phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
In a little less than 2 hours, the Moon will enter its First Quarter phase, whose keyword is Action. (The Moon will be at 12Leo52 in my 11th house and the Sun will be at 12Tau52 in my 9th house.) In the late morning, the Moon will enter my 12th house.
The search saga continues. The candidate who initially seemed to be the most promising turned out to be problematic during the search. He was weighing a competing offer and finally made his decision today to accept the other offer. We still have an offer pending and are working on bringing in another candidate in order to try to hedge our bets.
I went to Rosen this past day. As stressed out as I was (and still am), the fact that I have been doing this practice means that there is a "there" there to which it is possible to return periodically. The Rosen worker and I had a short conversation about this, along with the way that a regular spiritual practice can provide a place to which one may return after being challenged.
