Many people do a lot of work around the cycles of the Moon.
From starting projects at the New Moon, to home gardening and even large scale farming, to relaxing and tying up loose ends during the Waning Moon.
It is fun and I find it helps a wee little human stay connected to the natural rythyms of the big ol’ universe.
One nuance to this work is what is called the void-of-course Moon.
This is basically the period of time when the Moon makes no more major (conjunction, opposition, square, trine, sextile) aspects with another planet before moving into the next sign of the zodiac.
Let me illustrate: Moon moves into Leo> trines Uranus in Aries > continues in Leo > conjuncts Jupiter > continues in Leo > sextiles Mars in Libra > continues in Leo > becomes void-of-course > remains so until ingressing into Virgo > when the whole process of ingress/aspects/void-of-course/ingress occurs again and again and again . . .
Moon void-of-courses (MVOC) can last a very short time or a very long time or somewhere in between—remember back at the Solstice/New Moon when the Sadge Moon was void-of-course for over 12 hours!?!?
Well, from my research, MVOC’s can be seen as mini-Mercury Retrogrades, where things don’t go as planned and new projects shouldn’t be started. But instead of 2-3 solid weeks like Merc Rx, VOC usually only lasts hours, though they occur every couple days instead of 2-3 times annually.
MVOC are seen as times to catch up on sleep (yes, literally) or somesuch activity that bolsters your soul—like meditation or a walk in the woods or yoga or a nice cup of tea with a friend.
Relax and let things wait til Luna moves to the next sign.
Of course, mundane life doesn’t come to a stand still because the Moon is telling you to take a nap, yeah?
Control what you can and don’t sweat the rest!!
Calendars of Moon void-of-course times for 2015 are readily available all over the internets.
