Understanding the Void of Course Moon:
You may have noticed my mentioning of this “evil aspect” called “Void of Course Moon” in the daily predictions. Just to make things clear, Void of Course Moon is not a wholesome inauspicious aspect. It actually isn’t even an aspect. It’s quite the opposite. A Void of Course Moon happens when the Moon, while getting ready to leave a zodiac, doesn’t form any strong aspect with the 9 major planets.
So, the Void of Course Moon period starts when the Moon forms the last aspect in a zodiac, and lasts until it enters the zodiac where it will form the next aspect. This is usually the next zodiac. Nevertheless, there are some rare cases when the Moon passes through a zodiac without forming any aspect. In these cases, the whole time the Moon passes through this zodiac is regarded as it being Void of Course. So, yes, it’s not an aspect, but, for simplicity, let’s call it one.
What to avoid during a Void of Course Moon:
So, this aspect is inauspicious for new beginnings, new projects, new deals, new contracts, etc. Anything new receives negative influence from this aspect, and it is expected to fail, to be cancelled, or to face many difficulties. Therefore, is unwise to start anything new, take important decisions, or signing important deals during a Void of Course Moon. Of course, if this isn’t possible, just get ready to work harder for these to succeed.
Other than those, though, the Void of Course Moon neither brings negative influence, nor it reduces the beneficial influences from other active aspects. In the same manner, it doesn’t strengthen the negative influences, either. Continuing what you have already started, and doing things you usually do, are not affected by this aspect in any way.
For instance, if you have a good day work wise, and a Void of Course Moon happens during this day, the day will continue being a good one. But if you have a good day for starting an advertising campaign and a Void of Course Moon happens, during this time, it’s unwise to launch this campaign. Preparing it, though, isn’t affected. Quite the opposite, because of the aspects making that day a good one for advertising, preparing one receives beneficial influences.

Since this waning Moon is a very auspicious one, and in the same time our last days before the ecliptic period, it is wise to try to make the best out of it. During this time, most of the planets are in Capricorn, or nearby. Therefore, long periods of Void of Course Moon will appear. Knowing them in advance can help us schedule our time better.
