It is a good idea to know when the Moon is Void of Course because during that time, you should not make important decisions and you should not make major purchases or decide to make major purchases. It is also not a good time to start a new job or start a new relationship. This is because when the Moon is Void of Course, things won’t work out the way you think they are going to. Things can go awry and get a little messed up.

It is perfectly fine to go about your normal life during this time, in fact some things are even better when the Moon is Void of Course (more on that below), it’s just not a good time to make important decisions.

When is the Moon Void of Course?

As the Moon travels in its orbit, She moves from one sign to the next. There is a period of time when she is leaving one sign and is going into the next sign and that is when the Moon is considered Void of Course.

The Moon can stay Void of Course anywhere from a few minutes to as much as 1 day. Each day, I check my Llewellyn Astrological calendar to see when the Moon is going to be Void of Course, so that I am sure to not make any important decisions that day (this is not an ad for Llewellyn, I’m not associated with them in any way, I’ve just never found another calendar that has this information listed). I decided that this was such a valuable piece of information, that I’m going to make it available to all of you who follow me on Facebook and who receive my newsletters. By the way, if you don’t receive my weekly email newsletters, you can do so if you

While I don’t call myself an astrologer, I have studied it for over 30 years and found that certain applications of it have been very important for my life.

So knowing about these times is very beneficial. To quote the Llewellyn calendar, during Void of Course Moons people are "fuzzy – or vague – scattered even" and "action initiated during this time is often wasted, irrelevant, or incorrect." It’s good to know when people are going to be fuzzy!

But because this is a time of “fuzziness”, it’s also a good idea to ‘go within’ -- spiritual pursuits during this time are very good (see more on this below).

So here are the things you should NOT do while the Moon is Void of Course and following that are things that are actually beneficial to do while the Moon is Void of Course:

Things you should NOT do while the Moon is Void of Course

  • Don’t make important decisions.
  • Don’t start a new relationship, romantic or otherwise (not good for first dates!)
  • Don’t buy anything that is expensive that is expected to last or be important to you.
  • Don’t plan an important meeting
  • Don’t start a new project.

But there are actually very positive aspects when the Moon is Void of Course. Because the Moon rules our emotions, this is an excellent time to go within and to reflect, as reflection is what the Moon is all about. Here are things that are actually GOOD to do while the Moon is Void of Course:

  • Your normal, everyday routine.
  • Spiritual practices, especially meditation. Your inner wisdom and intuition will be more accessible right now
  • A great time to do yoga.
  • Parties and other social events are wonderful.
  • Travel can be very good during a Void of Course moon.
  • An excellent time to get rid of clutter and get organized.
  • Sleep
  • Relaxing and just vegging out are very good during this time.
  • Look at your life and all areas of your life – what do you need? What do you want? Just don’t make final decisions or start to act on it yet. Just stay in the place of evaluating.
  • Excellent time to revise things – things you’ve written, plans you’ve already made, etc.
  • Plan things you don’t actually want to do, as they probably won’t happen!

Isn’t it interesting, the list of things that are ‘Good’ is actually twice as long as the list of ‘Don’t Do’s’ – I love that! So watch our messages that we’ll be sending to let you know when the Moon is Void of Course. We’ll also be sending you the Moon Phases so you’ll know which sign the moon is in at that time.

And always remember, Astrology and other tools are simply that – tools. It’s good information to have, but it does not mean that this is the determining factor or controlling your life. We all have free will in all the choices that we make. I like to look at it as good information that can be transcended.

Many blessings,
