Prophet of the day (according to Ibn 'Arabi): Jesus
The Sun is in 4 Capricorn (in my 4th house): Indians on the warpath. While some men row a well-filled canoe, others in it perform a war dance. (Symbol for 5 Capricorn from Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala)
The Moon is at 19Leo58 (in my 12th 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: Disseminating - Demonstration (phase names and keywords from Dane Rudhyar, The Lunation Cycle)
A little over an hour ago, the Moon entered its Disseminating phase, whose keyword is Demonstration. A few minutes ago, the Moon entered my 12th house. About an hour after noon, the Moon will enter Virgo (in my 12th house).
I survived the family Christmas gathering.
During the past day, I became curious to see if Greg Bogart had written any further books on astrology. I found one I had not yet read and I ordered it. Since I ordered it through Amazon, I was given the opening of the book as a preview on Kindle. Reading it has felt like returning to an old friend. I learned that he established a correspondence with Rudhyar late in the composer's life, and that this had helped him to structure his vocation as astrological counselor.
