If you send anything of importance that you want to get noticed during "Void of Moon" it will not get the attention you were aiming for!
This applies to all things, from obtaining a loan, to simply needing eyes on a service you are offering, & from sending a simple email, void of moon matters!
The Moon enters the "Void of Course" phase from the moment its last aspect is formed until it moves into a new sign.
Put simply, it takes twenty-eight and a half days for the Moon to travel through all the different zodiac signs, and the Moon stays for around two and a half days in each sign. The Moon is considered to be Void of Course when it is changing from one sign to the next, although the timing of this is not fixed. As the Moon changes signs, it can be Void of Course for anything from a few minutes to several days, or even just overnight. The Moon starts to become Void of Course after it makes its last major transit in a sign and is moving to a new sign. Before it gets there it is in the Void of Course period.
A lot of astrological sites or books don’t mention when the Moon is Void of Course which is a mistake, as it tends to have a pronounced effect on how people behave around this time. In many ways, it can feel as if everything is suddenly on hold and you are being given a break from real life for a few days or hours or hour! This can have both negative and positive aspects to it.
When the Moon is Void of Course it is usually not a good time to make decisions. Often our judgment is clouded at this time, or we make unwise decisions that turn out later to be silly or just plain wrong. We may feel as if we are more creative at this time, only to see later that our creativity was leading us down the wrong path, or that the things we dreamt up during this period were unrealistic. One example of this might be when the moon is void of course is when you suddenly have a random idea for a new business venture which seems completely brilliant, only for the idea to fall flat when you pitch it to friends, family, or colleagues later on. Another example could be if you already have a business and you suddenly get an idea to implement a new deal or business idea, only to see it fail spectacularly or simply fail to generate any kind of buzz, advancement, or financial reward.
One of the biggest issues that we face when the Moon is Void, of course, is the fact that all decision-making is warped. This can apply, like the above examples, to business or work-related issues, but it also reaches into every other part of our lives as well. As such, this is a bad time to make big decisions about anything, as they will often be the wrong ones and they may have serious negative consequences for us in the long term.
Other things can happen when the Moon is Void of Course that show us that it is unwise to make any big or sudden moves. Meetings with colleagues can go awry, even if usually group dynamics run smoothly. People can seem less sociable and you may feel lonelier. If you work in a research-based field then you may see strange results come back where previously everything fit into a set pattern. Our judgment is impaired when the Moon is Void of Course, so this often makes us quarrelsome and it can make working with others or on group projects difficult.
Many people do not know about the Void of Moon & what not to do, if by chance you are reading this post & shaking your head in disbelieve, I'd keep a pin & pad handy & when things do not turn out the way you anticipated, look to see if it was during Void of Moon in which you launched your objective.
The Moon Void of Course period is not one that we need to be unduly worried about. It is simply another cycle just like other challenging times such as Mercury Retrograde. Still, there are things that we can do or achieve during this time, and if anything this cycle can provide us with some respite and with a chance to look inwards and take care of ourselves. Spiritual matters are heightened, so using this period to work on things like prayer, contemplation, or meditation is an excellent use of this cycle. As with times like Mercury Retrograde, this is not a time to start something new, but it is an excellent time to work on what we already have in front of us.
Using the time when the Moon is Void of Course is important as it takes away some of our apprehension around this cycle. Some good things to work on therefore are engaging in any spiritual practices as mentioned above, so practicing yoga, meditation, prayer, or affirmations is a very positive thing to do. It’s also a good time to rest and catch up on sleep, or to indulge in lighthearted pursuits like playing with children or going to a park. Make time to relax and even plan to go to a spa or have a pampering manicure or pedicure. If working, of course you cannot take time out because the moon is void of course, but do know, if you engage in anything new, implement anything new, it will fail. So save your energy until the Moon is NOT void of course!
When the Moon is Void of Course, it is also a positive time to work on our routines. Anything we schedule regularly will continue to go well, for this is not a time to start anything new but it is a time to keep moving forward as usual. With that in mind, we should stick to our usual routines closely.
This is not a time to plan for the future or make any new changes, but it is an excellent time to look backwards. This means that you could spend the time cleaning and clearing out aspects of your life, literally if you like, as spring cleaning is bound to go well at this time and you will be able to de-clutter your living space quickly and efficiently.
It is also a good time to do things like editing, so if you are working on a project then go back and look over any mistakes and polish the work when the Moon is Void of Course. This also applies if you work in any field like writing or publishing. If you were working on something like a thesis or dissertation, then this would also be a good moment to look back over it, rather than submit it when the Moon is Void of Course.
As mentioned above, it is a bad idea to start something new when the Moon is Void of Course. This can apply to personal or professional projects but it can take many other forms as well. A good example of this would be sending out resumes, starting a new job when the Moon is Void of Course, as it may be that the job turns out not to meet our expectations, or we will often end up leaving this employment early for whatever reason.
We also need to be mindful of the people we meet for the first time when the Moon is Void of Course. A good example of this would be if you are involved in internet dating. Arranging to meet a potential suitor for a first date during this cycle is not wise, and the relationship will often be plagued with issues or the person may turn out to be very different from our original perceptions. This doesn’t mean that we should never make connections at this time, but try to schedule first meetings away from the Void of Course dates.
Another good idea when the Moon is Void of Course is to steer clear of buying anything new. Again, just wait a few hours, days, minutes, etc.… until the time has passed. Anything you buy at this time is likely to have issues such as faulty parts which need to be constantly fixed, or our judgment may trick us and we may end up buying an expensive item that isn’t right for us, such as the wrong model of computer or Smartphone.
All in all, there is nothing to fear when the Moon is Void of Course, and actually this can end up being a relaxing time that we can use to look back and get our ship in order before moving forward again when the cycle ends. With a little forward planning therefore, we can use astrology and the Moon Void of Course period to recharge and reshape our lives, and to get ready for what lies ahead.
