Void of Course Moon


We all have the late and brilliant astrologer, Al H. Morrison to thank for his ground breaking work and promotion of the Void of Course Moon. Al spent well over 40 years of his life researching, writing and teaching this astrological technique. According to Al: “Every couple of days there comes a time which is best used to subjective, spiritual non-material concerns, like prayer, yoga, play, psychotherapy, or passive experience, sleep or meditation.


This period may last a few seconds, or it may be three days and nights in a single session.  It begins when the Moon in transit makes the last major aspect it will make before it changes from one sign of the Zodiac to the next.  It ends when the Moon enters the next sign. The name of this period is Void of Course Moon.  You may call it a silly season, or vacation from normal living.


Decision-making in such periods turns out later to be unrealistic. Creativity diverges into unplanned directions, improvisions, false starts, error. If you buy any object you never use it fully.  Enterprises founded while the Moon is Void of Course do fail after long and costly effort.  Human judgment is more fallible than usual during the time the Moon is Void of Course. This is the principle factor in all observed experience thus far.


Routine proceeds readily, but often requires an adjustment later. Defects or shortages come to light. Delay and frustration are commonly experienced while the Moon is Void of Course.”  The Moon is the fastest moving body in astrology. She spends about two and a half days in a sign.  After she forms her last aspect she is void until she enters the next sign.


Visualize any endeavor begun with it being stamped VOID in bold capital letters and you can grasp the importance of following the Void of Course Moon.  Having great aspects going on in your chart at the same time won't save you either or bring success. Success or failure can result from the Moon being void or not.


The Moon rules our subconscious, emotions and feelings.  When she goes "void" this is experienced on a mass global level.  People are not tuned into reality 100%.  Often they are prone to be detached from reality, spacey, and feel unanchored.
