The Curious Case of the Void-of-Course Moon: Dead Zones, or Moments of Truth?

with April Elliott Kent

Every couple of days, when the Moon has finished making all major aspects in one sign and until it moves into the next, it enters its "void of course" period. According to conventional astrological wisdom, void-of-course Moon periods are considered  astrological “dead zones” - unhappy times to start new projects, meet new people, or make important decisions. In short, when you initiate something on a void-of-course Moon, “nothing will come of the matter.”

That's how I've used the void-of-course Moon for years. But I kept running across numerous puzzling examples in which it just didn't seem to work the way it was supposed to. Looking for an explanation eventually took me all the way back to the 17th century. In this lecture, we take a look at the charts of some surprising and enduring events and connections that began when during these void of course Moon periods - and challenge our modern understanding of them.
