As the Moon orbits the Earth it passes through the signs of the zodiac.

Every lunar month it travels through all twelve signs, passing through each in more than two, but less than three days. When the Moon approaches the end of each sign, it goes beyond its last major aspect, or connection, with another planet. When this happens, and until it moves into the next sign, the Moon is said to be “Void of Course.” This period is a time when we can feel uncomfortably disconnected and without direction. It is, there-fore, an ideal time for centering ourselves.

The void of course condition may occur for only seconds or minutes of time or it may last for a day or two. It all depends on the locations of the planets and their interactions at the time.

While the Moon is void of course (V/c) it is wise to avoid making important decisions. Judgment at this time is probably faulty. Decisions tend to be unrealistic, subject to factors unknown at the time. New paths are likely to be plagued with false starts, errors, and unexpected hassles.

During Moon void of course, actions produce unexpected results.

Creative efforts go in unexpected directions. Contracts, promises or new laws bring on difficulties. Purchases prove to be unsatisfactory or the object simply does not fulfill its intention. Routines involving no decisions will usually go well but often require corrections later. Delays and frustrations are common. Moon void of course is a time to “kick back,” let life flow and avoid putting yourself in the path of difficulties.

The important guideline for Moon void of course periods is to avoid being involved in concerns beyond your spiritual center. Moon void of course is a time for subjective, spiritual, non-materialistic concerns. If we have taken time off from business to give attention to relaxation and our spiritual growth during the Moon void of course, we can more effectively go back to dealing with the affairs of the day-to-day material world once the Moon has entered a new sign.
