Subota 1 Ramazan 1438

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

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

The Sun is in 5 Gemini (in my 9th house): Workmen drilling for oil. (Symbol for 6 Gemini from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 23Gem13 (in my 10th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 7, The Throne, letter Qā, The All-Encompassing (Al-Muḥīṭ)

Lunar phase: New Moon - Emergence (phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)

In the morning, the Moon will enter Cancer (in my 10th house).

So, Ramazan begins. Džuma was good today. There was no mention of anything controversial: just traditional teachings about Ramazan and practical announcements. This is perhaps both a strength and a weakness of this particular mosque. On the one hand, it is seldom offensive. On the other, if one wants to reflect on current events, one needs to turn to other sources. (It seems to me that the negative mention of LGBT issues a couple of months ago was probably in response to the publicity surrounding the marriage of two men from Bosnia in St. Louis. I think it would have been better to say nothing at all than to say in the khutbah that this "not normal," but that is utlimately all that was said.)

I could go to teravih this evening, but I'm feeling tired and am planning to go to bed early instead.
