Also called the “Moon Void Of Course,” the Void Moon merely is when the Moon in one sign has no more significant aspects to make before it gets into the next sign.
It can last for any length of time from a minute to a whole day.
You can see when they are occurring on the Moon Calendar here.
People disagree over their significance. Some say it is the “down tools” signal and that projects begun during them are a no-go. Whilst I would never launch anything on a Void Moon, I also would not take it as the cue to bunk off.
I mean, it’s impossible. If you slothed out every Void Moon, it would be a LOT of time out of a busy schedule.
But once you observe them for a few Moon cycles, you start to understand how you respond to them. They often inspire wild insights and creativity.
There is an old witches tale that you meet soulmates only during the Void Moon. It’s a time when tangential projects spark useful synchronicity. For example, bereft of inspiration for the task at hand, you go on a seemingly mindless meander through the media online and discover something super-useful.
Conversely, when you plan to relax during this time, you can suddenly feel inspired to do your entire tax admin for the year.
But shopping during Void Moons? No. You rarely come back with what you set out to buy. It’s like you’ve been out shopping for a shadow self, a version of you that’s long gone. The same goes for meaningful negotiations.
If you do a Horary chart (a question chart cast for the time you are asking a question – very popular in the olden days when barely anyone knew their exact birthday, let alone time of birth – only royalty did proper natal charts), the Void Moon means forget about it for the time being.
I would NOT launch anything major or try anything drastic during this lunar phase if possible; if I know a super long one is coming up, I will try to not over-schedule it.
Many people are born on a Void Moon. They are usually adept at magic or blessed with high functioning intuition. They trust the tangents and during a Void Moon, so should you!
