Subota 20 Rebiu-l-evvel 1439

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

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

The Sun is in 17 Sagittarius (in my 4th house): Children playing on the beach, their heads protected by sunbonnets. (Symbol for 18 Sagittarius from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)

The Moon is at 07Vir50 (in my 12th house). Lunar mansion (according to Ibn 'Arabi): 13, The Third Sky, Sky of Mars and House of Aaron, letter Lām, The Victorious (Al-Qahhār)

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

Overnight, the Moon transited my natal Uranus (in my 12th house). About 2 hours later, Mars entered Scorpio (in my 2nd house). This afternoon, the Moon will transit my natal Pluto (in my 12th house).

I have been away from writing for the previous two evenings. On Thursday evening (the eve of Friday) I attended a concert on campus. It turned out to be not as much of a chore as I had feared. There was another university-related concert, off campus, this past evening, but I skipped it in order to finish putting comments on a draft of a final paper by one of my graduate students.

I usually write in the evening, but I decided to take some time to write this morning, as the last day of classes was yesterday and now I can spend time on my work, less impeded by the demands of preparing courses and grading piles of assignments.

Yesterday afternoon I received a FB message from a pianist and composer whose work I admire. He informed me of a fairly recent health problem he had been having. Now that he is recovering, he is becoming active as a pianist once again. He had a question of interpretation of a work by Rudhyar to run by me. I answered his question and shared with him some of the structural insights I had had into the piece. He encouraged me to resume my activity as a performer. This was a welcome and timely bit of validation and encouragement.
