So.. here's your lesson for the day in astrology if you didn't know this already:
Let's talk about the moon going “Void of Course”
(From Moon Void of Course and Moon Phases)
Knowing when the Moon becomes Void of Course is an easy way to begin to watch the effect of the closest heavenly body to earth-the Moon. The Moon becomes "void" when it's not making any major aspects to the other planets. This happens every few days for a time period ranging from a few minutes to a day or more.
Simply put, what this means from a practical standpoint, is that anything that is started when the Moon is void of course, doesn't pan out.
Starting a new business? Don't make it official until the void period is over.
Looking for an engagement date? Avoid the times that the Moon is void if you want to play it safe. One more thing. Don't push the send button on an important e-mail until the Moon void period is over. That is, unless you want nothing to come of it. Fretting over a possible negative outcome for a court case, a health issue or whatever?
The void of course definition still applies-nothing comes of it.
Can you override the effect of a void Moon? Maybe, but be prepared to double your efforts and then hope and pray for the best. Now, I have to tell you, the reverse strategy of starting something important when the Moon is not void doesn't guarantee success. I do know that starting something important when it is void, nearly always holds true; Nothing much happens. I also know that if I can avoid hang-ups and disappointments, that's enough to make me check my calendar.
Also from: Void of course moon Emphemeris
"Historic events during such periods have a wild, Pandora's Box impact on cultural evolution. The first two dozen successful spaceshots were all launched with the Moon Void of Course, to open an all-new age in which old concepts and ideas are corrected or disproven.
"In every presidential election from 1900 through 1972 one of the two major party candidates was nominated with the Moon Void of Course. Every one of the candidates nominated with the Moon Void of Course lost.
"Jimmy Carter's 1980 nomination came in a Void of Course Moon."
"John Kerry's 2004 and Al Gore's 2000 nomination came in a Void of Course Moon."
So, here are the last and next Void of Course periods. (All times PST)
Last: Moon went void on 12/29 @ 7:01 pm; Moon entered Cap 12/30 @ 6:35 am
Next: Moon goes void on 12/31 @ 1:09 am; Moon enters Aqu 1/1@4:15 am
So... what does this mean?
2006 will start V/C. And due to the date line and time zones... this one does not have a convenient time zone where you could 'hide out.'
So... how do you deal with this? Well, here's my opinion...
Start your New Years Eve celebrations today.
Make the entire event a process that begins now and terminates Sunday morning.
The entire purpose of the new year celebration is to draw to a close 2005. To put the old year behind you and to make way for a new, different, and hopefully better year. If you identify this process as watching Dick Clark (or his designated appointee) clamber for about 45 minutes, watch a shiny ball drop, and drink; then I think your process won't really help you make the transition this year and you'll kinda be stuck in that 2005 wave.
On the other hand. If you start the process now you can build up to a perfect moment charged from one sign and diffused in another.
Now this is just my own opinion... but it definitely warrants meditation and contemplation.
