As the MOON orbits the EARTH, every month the Moon journeys through all 12 signs of the zodiac, passing through each sign for 2 1/2 days (more than two but less than three days). When the Moon nears the end of each sign, the Moon loses the last bit of connection until it moves into the next sign. Moon is void of course occurs during this time of loss of connection. And for us humans and animals, it’s easy to feel unconnected, a bit lost, or without direction. Of course!
The Moon void of course cycle can be a time-out phase bringing you the opportunity to center, release, and balance. It is best to not make big decision, open new doors of opportunity, or initiate new endeavors while Moon is void of course. Moon void of course can last for a few minutes, or for a day or two. Usually, Moon void of course occurs while we are sleeping.
Every lunar month, the Moon travels through all 12 zodiac signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. The Moon sign sets the tone, mood, and feeling. By following the lunar rhythm and pattern, it is easier to be in the cosmic flow.
Fire sign Aries Moon is time for independent action and to initiate new projects. Earth sign Taurus Moon is to ground and establish what was started during the Aries Moon. Air sign Gemini Moon is to communicate and spread ideas. Water sign Cancer Moon is time to heal, nurture, and focus on home and family. Then the cycle of Fire, Earth, Air, and Water signs repeats twice more:
Fiery Leo Moon is time to shine and express your creativity; Earth sign Virgo Moon is for health, healing, and service to others. Air sign Libra Moon is for partnerships, marriage, and romance. Water sign Scorpio Moon is for getting to the depth of matters, especially all things emotional and spiritual.
Fire sign Sagittarius Moon is for exploration, adventure, and expansion. Earth sign Capricorn Moon is time to focus on earth-plane concerns such as finances and career; Air sign Aquarius Moon is great to explore new methods and work in groups; Moon in water sign Pisces is for spiritual and emotional development, and to dream.
Initiate new activities during a Fire Moon. During an Earth Moon get grounded, focus on health and food, and address financial concerns. Use an Air sign Moon to network, plan, or address legal matters. Water sign Moons are ideal for intuitive connection, deeper sensitivity, and heightened intuition. The best planting days for gardeners are during the Earth and Water sign Moons. (More on gardening by the Moon in future blogs.)
Right now the Moon is void of course as it leaves Water sign Scorpio to enter Fire sign Sagittarius tomorrow morning. During a Moon void of course, find some time to relax, rest, and take care. Due to the influence of Scorpio on this lunar void cycle, it is easier to understand spiritual insights and release old emotions or resentments.
