When Can One Anticipate A Void Moon?
If you find yourself looking at a chart and find you are in a void moon, it is easy to calculate its duration. The moon travels one degree (also referred to as "orb") every two hours. That is why the lunar cycle is roughly 28 days. It moves quite fast. So look and see where this void moon (sometimes referred to as VoC moon for "void of course") is on the chart. If the moon is void at 27 degrees Aries, for example, it would be approximately six hours until it moved into the next zodiac sign and the void course ends.
In the above example, the moon is not Void. The moon (at 9 degrees Scorpio) has yet to Square Uranus and Mars in Aquarius. Square aspects are one of the Major aspects (the others being trine, conjunction, opposition, and sextile).
Is the Void Moon Good or Bad?
Things That One Can Do To Make the Best of a Void Moon:
The void moon is an excellent time to work unseen and discretely. If you have any business you would like to keep private or from getting out of hand it's an excellent time.
- Clear away undesired negativity in one's social / personal life
- Ask for space from those who are crowding you
- File any complaints or grievances (there is much less chance of a backlash/reprisal)
- Conduct any business you are content with never confronting again
- Deliver difficult news or initiate an ending (such as putting in a job notice)
- Enjoy empty traffic, restaurants, and short lines
Things That One Should Not Do During a Void Moon:
The void moon seldom causes havoc and calamity. Even if it does, it's usually not an individual's personal experience. So do not think it will do any harm. However, because of the lack of atmospheric support and no ripple effect, it can be like planting a seed in bad soil. It may never germinate. If you think there is a void moon coming or occurring, you can use the method indicated above to calculate its duration. Sometimes waiting an extra two hours is worth it.
- Ask anyone out on a date (however you CAN go on the date during the void moon)
- Take a test or interview
- Ask for special favors
- Change or alter one's schedule (such as planning a holiday or move)
- Any intense manifestation / energy work . It won't end badly, it just won't work. If you must, please augment the process with more energy from Crystals, Herbs, and atmospheric enhancements to compensate.
Spiritual Activities That Are Ideal During a Void Moon:
While trying to manifest an intention in the physical might be more challenging, spiritual work of a more intangible nature is beautifully supported during the void moon.
- If you've ever wanted to try Lucid Dreaming, Astral Projection, or Out of Body Experiences of any kind it's a great time because of the lack of "interference"
- Likewise, spirit communication such as mediumship and channeling workings are supported if you would like to have a session with the other side.
- Divination such as scrying & tarot are also great
- Clearing space and house cleanings (to be blessed and protected after the void moon)
