The definition of a Void-of-Course transit Moon is as follows: It is the period of time between the last aspect of the Moon while it is transiting in a Sign and the moment when the Moon enters the next Sign. There is a Moon void-of-course period every couple of days, but the length of that period varies widely. The length depends on the placement of the planets and can last from a few minutes or hours to a day or more.
The nature of a Moon void-of-course period is pretty complicated actually. For now, let me suggest that there are three basic descriptions that capture the essence of this phenomenon. They are as follows:
1) ‘Information may be missing.’
2) ‘Things will turn out differently from what is expected.’
3) ‘Nothing will come of it.’ This means that one’s intention will not work out the way one plans.
These periods however can also be quite creative, exciting and there can be relief from boredom. They are good for rest and relaxation, having fun, meditation, reading, taking time to finish projects already started, handling errands, etc.
Please remember that no two Moon void-of-course periods are ever the same. I know of many examples when the surprise turned out quite favorably. I encourage interested readers to experiment on their own to see how these periods actually work out. And, avoid thinking that they are always negative. However, as a general rule it is often best to avoid making major decisions at this time. Unless, you have no choice. This does occur sometimes and ironically, if it does, this is when things usually work out fine. Maybe the meeting is cancelled or someone that needs to attend, simply doesn’t show up. We don’t have to try and control everything. Life just doesn’t work that way.
With these hints, play and experiment and see for yourself what this interesting period means for you.
