Void of Course Moon:
Part Three

In the previous two articles on the phenomenon known as "Void of Course" I defined the term, gave specific examples of a "Void of Course Moon," and described the astrological significance of a Void of Course Moon in Electional Astrology. I shall take advantage of this article to reiterate that "Anything started while the Moon is Void of Course will fail in its intent and purpose ... and nothing will come of it."

In this, the concluding article of the three part series, I shall discuss the astrological significance of a natal horoscope whose Moon is Void of Course. Fewer than ten percent of the natal horoscopes that you deal with will have Void of Course Moons. Even that small percentage of Moons is easy to miss if you merely look at a computer printout of the chart or merely calculate the chart from an ephemeris. You must actually seek the Void of Course phenomenon by searching for Moon transits to see whether any Ptolemaic aspects occurred after the moment of birth. I, personally, like to see the Moon make at least two such Ptolemaic aspects before I say that the Moon is not Void of Course in this natal horoscope, stretching the definition a bit.

Should you find that there is a Void of Course Moon in a person's horoscope, you can be very helpful to this person by pointing out some characteristics, and suggesting remedies for them. I have found two major characteristics that need discussion. The first is that these people always trust the wrong people. Mention this, and they will nod their heads and agree. The Astrologer's job is to make the "native" aware of this characteristic, and urge them to make considered judgments hereafter about whom to trust. The second characteristic is that people whose Moon is Void of Course have something wrong with their sense of timing. In general, they wait too long to take care of personal matters. They procrastinate until a crisis occurs. They usually do not realize that they are putting off pleasurable vacations, purchases, repairs, and other activities, for no particular reason.

Now let us consider Secondary Progressions and the Progressed Moon. Since the Progressed Moon will enter a new sign approximately every two and a half years, there will be a period of time after the Progressed Moon's last Ptolemaic aspect when the Progressed Moon is Void of Course. Sometimes this period lasts for a few months, depending on the personal horoscope. Everyone experiences this phenomenon every two and a half years, at dates that you can determine with a little arithmetic.

Next let us consider a situation which you may have in your own horoscope. If you should have a planet late in a sign, the transiting Moon might still be making a major (Ptolemaic) aspect to your personal late planet, even after it has made its last major aspect to other transiting planets and is officially Void of Course for the rest of the world. You, personally, might be able to continue operating effectively while the rest of the world is falling over the edge. Make sure that you are not involving anyone else! They might not be as protected as you are.

I suppose that you would like some examples of important events that went awry because they were started when the Moon was Void of Course. Easy. Thomas Dewey, Richard Nixon (1960, opposite John Kennedy), Barry Goldwater, and George McGovern were all nominated to run for President of the United States while the Moon was Void of Course. Hah! Nothing came of their candidacy. The Watergate break-in occurred during a Void of Course Moon. Richard Nixon was elected in 1972 while the Moon was Void of Course. My last example: Bill Clinton was inaugurated as President in 1997 while the Moon was Void of Course.
