Moon void-of-course

topic posted Mon, February 2, 2004 - 4:19 PM by  mmmina
Could someone enlighten me with the term 'moon's void-of-course'. I know it's kind of a in-between state between 2 signs, but what does it mean in practise? And how is it possible for a moon not to be in a sign... Does anything similar ever happen to other planets or the sun?

    my 2cents...

    this comes from a time when I went to an erotic party in sonoma county on a weekend when the 'moon was void of course'

    from the way it was described the morning after it seemed like the group, which was normally a bit more ribald and interactive at these periodic events, had an "off night" where things did not connect as they normally do and there was a general lack of energy or clarity of energy...I have a vivid memory of the organizers (who had hired me to do the erotic ice bar) saying to eachother: "Duh! why did we have a sexparty on "moon void of-course"

    I Hope that sheds at least a bit of metaphoric light on part of your question =)

      OK- here's my two cent Moon void observance:

      November 2000 election- moon went void of course around 4:45 Pacific time. I was listening to NPR reporting on the Florida election. All afternoon they said it was a win for Gore according to the exit polls. Then about five minutes after the moon went void, they started reporting that there was question as to whether or not Gore actually was leading Florida.
      Fast forward- The day that Gore v. Bush went to the Supreme Court- moon went void.
      Fast forward once more- the ENTIRE final day that the Supreme Court was in deliberation and made the decision to basically give Florida (and thus the Presidency) to Bush and not grant Gore the recount...once again, void of course.

      I spent a lot of time listening to NPR and following the ephemeris during that season. The strange thing is that a year later, journalists completed recounting the entire stock of ballots from the Florida 2000 election and found that Gore did indeed carry the state. I believe that Jeb and Kathleen Harris did some underhanded dirty work and that the ball dropped just as the moon went void of course just prior to the polls closing in Florida at 8 pm. Also, that there was a great deal of closed door communications and deal making while the Supreme court justices were deliberating, which was possible to do right in the open because the moon went void.

    When the moon is void-of-course it has made its last aspect before moveing into a new sign.As the theory goes, any activity that is initiated during this time period will bear no fruit, as it has no "hooks" to latch on to.Its mostly used as a horay technique.Its pretty well known that R Regan's astrologer kept him up to date on the void moon so that he could present "bad news" to the public during those times, thus mitigating any personal backlash to himself.

    As to the second question yes other objects do have time periods when they make no more aspects between sign crossings.But in horay astrology the moon is of the most primary significance, so being void is a special title.All other "planrts" are simply refered to being in a separating aspect.In horay astrology seperateing aspects are often considered to be not significant, and are ignored for the purpose of the reading.

          The moon goes void of course every 2 and a half days or so. for more info see scroll down to complete 2004 horoscope predictions resource center and click on the Void of Course moon 2004 link (I tried to paste the link but it wouldn't post correctly) this link gives you info on void of course moon and dates and times. Times are given in Eastern time so if you're on the west coast, subtract 3 hours. Next void of course is tomorrow (2/4) from 9:52Am through 4:50PM

            Anyone else here born during a void-of-course moon? I was, and about 10 years ago I read a description in a book about people born under a VOC moon and ever since I have been interested in finding out more about VOC people. The description in the book seemed to describe my consciousness to a tee. (I can't remember the author - it was a lady with a sort of spunky, conversational tone - if anyone has any idea who it might be, let me know!) However, I imagine a lot of people have been born during VOC moons so it's not like it's special or rare or anything, but I do believe it affects our consciousness. Here's one quote I found online about people born VOC:

            "Research has shown that people born under a Moon Void of Course were denied from a normal family-life."

            I can say "YES!!!" to that statement!

            As my dayplanner I use a book my roommate bought me and I love's called the Celestial Guide for 2004 by Jim Maynard.
            It's a calander, but on each days page it shows the moon sign and when it's VOC, along with major planetary aspects. It's really a wonderful resource.
            It does not give a website in the back, but has this ordering information:
            Quicksilver Productions
            541-482-5343/fax 541-482-0960/email


            BTW: next VOC is Wes at 12:42 a.m. til almost 3 p.m. (est) and after that is Friday the 13 (yikes!) from 8:39a til 6:35 p (est).
