From Al H. Morrison, the genius astrologer who traced the knowhow of Void Moons from the ancient times of Firnus Maternicus through Elizabethan times to the present, comes this explanation:
"Every couple of days there comes a time which is best used for 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 unpleasant directions, improvisations, false starts, error. Business moves fail to generate profits, or meet unexpected difficulties. If you buy any object it usually fails of its intended use. "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. "Neurotic tendencies, bad habits are more open to change. ESP experiments show odd results.
"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 nomination and Al Gore's 2000 nomination came in a Void of Course Moon. ---DK-S]
"Only observation can demonstrate what the Void of Course Moon indicates in your daily living. the scientific approach is to check it out. Design your own experiment.
"There is much more to selecting a "good" time to act or decide material issues. Skipping the Void of Course Moon is just staying out of avoidable difficulties.
"Go out of business when the Moon makes it's last aspect. Feed your soul until the time the Moon enters the next sign. Then, go back into business!"
