Void of Course Moon

If you haven't heard about this little gremlin, then it's your lucky day! A Void Moon, or Moon Void of Course, occurs every few days and can last from minutes to days. As the Moon travels across the night sky, and it leaves one hard aspect to another planet, and has not reached the next hard aspect, the moon is Void. Consider it a time of "Moon Limbo". At this time, things you commit to will not go according to plan.

Obviously, you might want to stave off any major decisions at this time. Avoid things of importance, such as making major life decisions. If you make plans, you will have quirky results. You might have someone cancel, or not show up, or everything that could go wrong happens. This also applies to plans made at the time the moon is Void of Course, even if the activities take place outside of the Void Moon.

Sometimes I stop paying attention to the Void of Course Moon tables. I do that from time to time - it keeps me on my toes. I have been in a hiring crunch at work and arranged 11 interviews. Out of those, only two showed up. Oddly, when I referred to my charts, these were the people that I got a hold of the following day to arrange a time with!

When the Moon is Void of Course, it is best to rest, rejuvenate, feed your soul, be creative, read, write or just relax. This is difficult to do in our modern world with jobs, kids and other demands. Consider it a time when you need to think of you first and find a way to pamper yourself.

Debbie Kempton Smith is a wonderful, energized woman and an excellent astrologer. I suggest going to her site for the tables of the Void of Course Moon. After you go there, pay attention to when you made plans that somehow did not pan out. This is the easiest way to see astrology at work in your daily life. I know. I know. At first I was a skeptic too, but give it a shot and let me know how it works out for you.

While you are at Debbie's site, buy her book, 'Secrets of a Stargazers Notebook'. You will LOVE it! I breaks down astrology into easy and fun language. Great for beginners or seasoned veterans. You will have a smile on your face as you read all about the world and people around you.

  • How It All Began...

    Astrology started for me in London, England. I was fed up with J.O.B.S. to make a living and decided I would not take another job just for the money. As I walked home, having just quit my bread and butter, I stopped into an amazing shop in Covent Garden that I passed by almost every day. There I met the owner and founder, Robert Currey. I remember he asked me how much I knew about astrology and I answered something vague. I thought, as most people do, that astrology was what I read in the papers. How wrong I was! Lucky for me, Robert Currey was a brave soul, and decided to give me a shot.

    The horoscopes you read in the paper lump all the world's population into one of only 12 signs. That's it. So when you read your horoscope, you are lumping yourself into one of a dozen categories. Think of all the people you know. Are there only 12 personalities around you? Of course not! Astrology is very literal and based on mathematical calculations.

    Using your time of birth, your date of birth and the longitude and latitude of the place where you born, an astrologer (or in today's world, a computer) calculates where the planets are angular at that specific time and place. If you have ever seen an astrological chart, a western chart looks like a circle cut into 12 uneven portions. Around the edge are the astrological signs, the portions are your houses or how you use your energy. Smattered around your chart wheel are planets and the sun and moon. These represent energy.

    Astrology gets even more complicated the further you delve into it. Literally, you could spend a lifetime studying astrology and never run out of new things to learn! Vedic charts are square and used primarily in middle eastern astrology. Astro*Carto*Graphy takes a map of the world and superimposes your astrological chart over it. It is based on the premise that as you travel, you experience different places in very different ways. There is even astrology that interprets different events and places, such as the "birth" of a nation.

    Journey with me through this vast world and experience the world, yourself, and others in a new light.
