In general, some astrologers suggest it may be best to delay important things during the moon void of course period, As the moon journeys through its cycle, it will at one point make its last main aspect (i.e. trine, conjunction, square, sextile, opposition) with another planet before changing signs.

By taking a moment to pause and reflect, we can gently remind ourselves of the importance of solid, sensible decision-making and open ourselves up to the potential of making more informed choices.
