The Moon completes a revolution around the Earth every 29 days, passingthrough the 12 signs of the zodiac and spending about 2 1/2 days in each sign.The Moon is void-of-course during the time between making its last major aspect to a planet in one sign and its entry into the next sign. The duration of this period can be as little as a few seconds or more than two days. The exact moment the Moon enters the new sign ends the void of course period.
Void of Course Effects
During a void of course period individuals are less focused. Human judgment isnot at its best and consequently decision making tends to suffer. In the void ofcourse period one should avoid: initiating new activities; purchasing new items;contacts or meetings with important people; signing contracts. Business discussions are unlikely to be resolved and if matters do not fall apart they will be put off to another time.
Information relayed for the first time will either be incorrect or not useful. You will be aware of shortages and defects. Purchases ought only to be made if they are exact replacements of something you’ve run out of. You'll also become aware of mistakes and errors during this time.
What you begin during a void of course Moon you usually do not do again. So do not make love with someone for the first time if you think you might want to again.
During a void period avoid bringing anything in for repair or consulting a physician or anyone else whose judgment is important to you.
Positive Aspects of the Void of Course Moon
One area of benefit is in spiritual pursuits. In doing meditation, one has no pull towards any particular planetary force and therefore is able to connect with other planes.
It is also a good time to clean house, relax, sleep, go out with a friend without any expectations. Use it as a natural pause to the high activity of mundane life.
If we were perfectly attuned to the ebb and flow of life's energy we would naturally be in harmony and do the appropriate action at the appropriate time. Until we achieve such a state a little assistance in recognizing what it feel like can perhaps help us get there.
