What do you do when the Moon is void of course?

Void, of course, moon meaning

The Void, of course, Moon happens when the Moon is floating- transiting between two signs; think of it like when you pause your favourite TV show, dance or listen to your favourite song in slow motion, or ask for a break in a relationship.

Yano sort of like a nap-nap time, what we all needed when we were toddlers, or a time out you were asked to have if you threw too many tantrums.

 The Moon is floating in the atmosphere, looking for its new home and aspect, like a transient wanderer always on the move, time and people move more sluggish, the world becomes blurry as you and others around you lack clarity and insight.

“Astrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.”
― C.G. Jung

The Void, of course, the Moon is when the Moon is not making any major aspect with any planet, although it could be aspecting an asteroid or making a minor connection with a planet.

 Major aspects are seen as squares, conjunctions, trines, sextiles, and oppositions; in astrology, applying aspects means two planetary bodies moving closer rather than further apart.

The Moon in astrology represents inter and external rhythms, gut and instinctive responses, how we incorporate, understand and reflect upon knowledge, experiences and information we are presented with during our daily interactions.

The Moon is the window between our past, present and future, giving us insights into how the events and people of the past condition our responses daily to current moment stimulation.

Not dealing with our past allows it to control our present moment outcomes and, therefore, our lives.

Dealing with our emotions is the only way through, as until we learn to manage and know ourselves, on the individual world, the external world and the people in it will control our every move at their whim.

 Sure we cannot control world events, but we can control the way we respond to them, which can be the difference between calm and reactivity, sanity and insanity.

The Moon’s aspects with planets throughout the week show us how we can capitalise on these energies to plant the seeds that will bear fruit for us in the future.

The Moon controls the rhythms in our body, such as heart and bowel movements, yes of course, how much we eat influences our bowel movements, as does the severe we exercise.

For example, our heart beats more when we do cardio exercise; in comparison to when we do gentle exercises like tai chi or yoga. Still, the Moon influences our readiness for either type of exercise.

The Moon signifies nurturing, feminine energy, the whole range of emotions from extreme joy to crippling depression; the Moon rules pure emotion and brings this flavour to every aspect it makes; the Moon is the fastest moving planet.

 Indicating the rapid changes of mood and circumstances humans go through, reminding us to heal our past transgressions so we can stop them from controlling us in the now, which robs us of the beauty of nature and new experiences.
