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 Daily Horoscopes. But personally, 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 (major) aspect one sign and the time of arrival in the new sign…or constellation. Some Voids last but a few minutes – others go for a whole day. The latter is when things really 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 when you just stop everything and go hug a tree or something.
But it is a time when tangential activities and intuitive promptings can be surprisingly useful. Stray random connections are made – both cognitively and literally, like in the street – during a Vortex Moon. I think the best way to work with these is to note the really LONG ones and try not to schedule things like a Space Shuttle launch, wedding, surgical procedure or I.P.O. for then. And to cut yourself/others more slack during these times – but then to be open to the synchronicity and magic potential.
Below is how they look in the Horoscopes – so with this one, for example, the Moon is Void for just under four hours and many of us will sleep through that. For certain signs it is more relevant than others so it rates a mention in the Horoscopes AND though i don’t spell this out in the Horoscopes, the planet it goes Void OFF is a player. So in this case, the Moon goes Void off Mercury so has a peculiar effect on Geminis/Virgos, as they are Mercury ruled.
Once the Moon reaches the next sign, it is no longer Void. Or Vortex. So if you see this in the Horoscopes and are not sure what they mean, or how they work, just note the times for your realm of Gaia and see what floats up during your own Vortex Moon. 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 own Moon-Yin rhythm!
