The Straight Truth About the Void-of-Course Moon

by Serenity Chappell

break

Losing momentum

As long as the Moon can form new major aspects with other planets in the sky from the sign it occupies, life flows. But when the Moon has formed its last major angle with the current planets in the sky and moved on -- meaning it now occupies a numerically higher degree position in the sign it occupies than any other planet in the sky, the Moon is considered void-of-course until it enters the next astrological sign.

In "plain English", the Moon has no more work to do and nothing else it can accomplish from the sign where it is void-of-course. It has nothing to "push against." It is at loose ends ... and the metaphor transfers right down into life on earth. Suddenly, ambitions vanish. Plans fall apart. Previously set directions and intents veer off course. Feelings become scattered and unfocused. People are emotionally "at sea," drifting and uninspired. Nothing happens.

I know that's a stunning statement ... but nothing happens. You go to the store ... and they're out of what you need. You make a phone call ... and the person you need to talk to isn't there and nobody can tell you how to reach him or when. You plan to have a lunch with a friend ... and one of you has to cancel, or gets delayed, or forgets the appointment, or doesn't show up because something else interfered at the last moment.

You try to write an important letter, and you can't concentrate on what you want to say. And what you eventually produce is too awful to send. Everyone you meet feels out of sorts and cranky because nothing's going right. You daydream; you stare into space. You feel "fuzzed out" and fatigued.

You get vague, non-committal, indirect, undependable, unsatisfactory answers to questions and requests. Nobody (you included) seems able to "get it together," and what's more nobody (you included) really seems to care. Nothing gets accomplished. Nothing happens!!!

Plans and decisions made (or announced) while the Moon is void-of-course go nowhere, don't work out, or cause nothing but trouble until you end them. New projects begun or finished while the Moon is void-of-course never (and I mean NEVER!!!) complete themselves according to plan. They fizzle out, wander around aimlessly, run out of steam and never get off the ground.

Agreements, arrangements, resolutions, intentions, contracts, and other choices that begin while the Moon is void-of-course never bring satisfactory results for anyone. They never fulfill their original purpose or vision. They often show the results of poor planning, unfocused thinking, unrealistically poor judgment and even unbelievable delusions.

The Void-of-Course Moon -- Quick Notes that Save Lots of Time ---> Don't start anything important!! -- When the Moon is void-of-course in any sign, it marks a pause in Life's rhythm. Moon-void-of-course periods are a time to coast, get some extra rest, take life easy and be gentle with yourself.Don't start or schedule anything important. Just wait for life to regain its rhythm and start moving forward again.

Just What IS the Void-of-Course Moon? -- When life's action slows to a stop ---> What's this all about? -- The Moon circles through all twelve signs of the Zodiac about every 28 days, spending about 2 1/2 days in each sign. As it moves through each sign, the Moon forms angles -- called aspects -- with the Sun and planets. These lunar aspects and the changes they mark describe the ebb and flow of moods and attitudes throughout the day.

The Straight Truth About the Void-of-Course Moon ---> Losing momentum -- As long as the Moon can form new major aspects with other planets in the sky from the sign it occupies, life flows. But when the Moon has formed its last major angle with the current planets in the sky and moved on -- meaning it now occupies a numerically higher degree position in the sign it occupies than any other planet in the sky, the Moon is considered void-of-course until it enters the next astrological sign.

Why the Void-of-Course Moon is a Problem -- When you don't know what you don't know ---> When nothing happens -- The energy spent while the Moon is void-of-course is wasted, meaningless, unproductive, off-kilter, out of synch, misdirected, and somehow wrong. (Sometimes the best result is "nothing happens." Sometimes you wind up in a terrible mess and have to start over ... because nothing happens. Sometimes that result is a virtual nightmare!!)

How to Use the Void-of-Course Moon ---> Take time out -- Sooo, what can you do while the Moon is void-of-course ... besides stay under the covers and wait for deliverance??? Well, it's a good time to tend to routine chores, like cleaning, filing, sorting, organizing, minor maintenance work -- things that if they get done, great!! But if they don't get done until "later" ... it doesn't really matter.

Let's Talk About This Thing Called the Void-of-Course Moon -- When You Wind Up Chasing Your Own Tail ---> When you just can't get it together -- Has the start of this year felt unusually sluggish and unfocused to you? It certainly has to me. I don't mean it's lacked effort and pressure. You may have plenty of that. But there's also been a "thick" feeling you've had to struggle against, as if you can't get organized, can't concentrate, can't really "get your act together."

Get Yourself an Astrological Calendar -- If only to keep up with the void-of-course Moon!! ---> Days when nothing happens -- I know you've lived through days that seemed pointless, boring, unfocused, "blah," unproductive, completely devoid of action and excitement ... and when you seemed to just get nothing worthwhile accomplished. We all have. Days like that can be too frustrating to describe.

A Day with No Lunar Aspects -- Not quite one thing ... not quite another ---> First things first -- To understand this article, you may need a little bit of background. First of all ... do you know about the Void-of-Course Moon? If so, great. Skip down and read on. If not, take a minute or two (honest, that's all you'll need) to read about it. However, you'll do yourself a favor if you really learn about the v/c Moon ... benefits way beyond the limits of this article. Start here:

Major Aspects of the Moon ---> The Moon in its travels -- The Moon, in its travels around the earth, cycles through all twelve signs of the Zodiac every twenty-eight to thirty days. It changes signs about every two and a half days. In each new sign, the Moon forms angles with the other planets in the sky, angles which are occasionally quite significant (called major aspects) and which mark the ebb and flow of both easy and irritating moments in everyday life.

The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world -- In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.) The Inner Self fueled by your Moon energy wants you to feel safe, protected, emotionally supported and "at home."

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
Inwardly, emotions are in high gear but under strict control. Not much may show out in the open, and what does break through gives strong evidence of the nuclear power churning away underground. This can be fuel to launch some fabulous dreams. Look inward. Connect with your heart's desires ... and make moves to make them happen.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Scorpio Sextile Pluto in Capricorn on Sat 23rd of Sep 2017 at 8:07 pm MDT

The Moon Will Be Void of Course:
from Sun 24th of Sep 2017 at 1:33 am MDT until it enters Sagittarius on Sun 24th of Sep 2017 at 10:01 pm MDT
