When the Void of Course Moon Is a Vortex, it is like a Void Moon on peptides. What the hell, you may be wondering, are the Vortex Moons? Well, the official term is Void Moons, and so they are named thus in the Moon Calendar. But I think of them as Vortex Moons. “Void” implies nothingness, a gap or a weird lunar black hole or something.
Vortex is a whirlwind of air and magic – the so-called Void Moons can be just that.
The Moon is considered Void between the time that it makes its last (significant) aspect one sign and the time of arrival in the new sign. Some Voids last but a few minutes – others go for a whole day. The latter is when things get interesting.
Some people say you should never start something you want to take root during a Void Moon – others that you only meet true soul bonded people during a Void Moon. I think it also depends on who you are and how you are handling your natal vibe. The Void or the Vortex Moon is not a ‘stop everything’ cue.
But it is a time when tangential activities and intuitive promptings can be surprisingly useful. Note the long ones and try not to schedule things like a Space Shuttle launch, wedding, surgical procedure or I.P.O. for then. Cut yourself/others more slack during these times – but be open to the eerie synchronicity.
Once you get used to a few lunar cycles (months) of noting how the different Voids/Vortexes play out for you, you are more aligned with your Moon-Yin rhythm!
