Astrology is a Complex Science, But Here’s One Important Indicator You Can Track Easily – Moon VOC

A client told us that even after he followed the advice of a

very respected astrologer and a well known psychic, the

date they chose for him to officially begin his business didn’t

result in success. He said he never saw the success they

foretold and sold the business two years later.

Along with his personal numerology charts representing

challenging timing, the date and times of his business’s official

beginning happened to be during a Moon Void of Course (VOC).

The Wall Street Journal published an article years ago about

business incorporated under Moon VOC and, astonishingly, the

majority of them never lasted more than a few years. Failure

was the common thread.

Unfortunately, many seasoned astrologers overlook this

extremely important astrological aspect.

The client’s business didn’t fail because of the Moon VOC,

it never reached the expectations prophesized because it was

most likely his fate to go through that challenging experience.

The Moon VOC at the start of his business simply represented

what was destined.

Below is information about Moon VOC to help you gain an

edge in any area of life.

Please note: We strongly recommend that you avoid

relying on only one or a few astrological or numerological

considerations, as a comprehensive approach involving

patterns of considerations is necessary for consistent

levels of accuracy in delineation and prediction.

However, since the Moon Void of Course is an

important affliction, you will benefit greatly even if it’s

the only astrological information you follow, as long as

you realize that there are many other astrological and

numerological indicators to keep in mind.

Moon Void of Course Report

Following the Moon Void of Course cycles is easy and can

save you time and money, yet few people are aware of

this phenomenon and even many experienced astrologers

overlook it. Since the moon is intimately connected to our

intuition and instincts, following Moon VOC will help you

make better choices in life. It’s been said that VOC is like

driving through a tunnel where your antenna is unable to

pick up the radio signals, or like being in a temporary

vacuum, where perception is distorted.

Moon Void of Course introduction:

The following introduction about Moon VOC is extracted from

pages 245-246 of “Your Love Life and Reincarnation” by

Stephen Petullo.

The Moon travels around the earth in about 28 days,

spending about two and a half days in each of the 12

zodiac signs. After the Moon leaves a sign and before

it enters the next sign, it is called Void of Course. The

Moon rules instinct and intuition. When the Moon is

VOC, the energy flow available to all living things

seems to slow down and our intuition is temporarily

clouded. During a VOC it’s easy to be unrealistic or to

perceive things differently than they really are. During

this time people tend to feel scattered and unfocused.

Time seems to drag on forever.

Knowing when the moon is Void of Course by checking the

times in an astrological calendar can save you a lot of time,

money, and effort. Follow them for a couple weeks, then

don’t look at the calendar for a few days, then look back

at those times later. You’ll find that even when you

didn’t consciously know it was a VOC, things were still

typical of a VOC. Moon VOC seem to affect everyone. Moon VOC

can last from as little as 10 minutes to as long as two days.

Moon VOC comprise, on average, about eight percent of the

standard eight-to-five work week. Of course, it’s not always

possible to schedule around these times, but it helps to be

aware of the difficulties you may encounter.

During a Moon Void of Course, DO:

o Routine work.

o Meditate–this is a great time to go inward. You’ll be even

more centered after the VOC.

o Break bad habits–if you can refrain during a VOC, it will be

easier to do so afterward.

o Creative hobbies.

o Routine cleaning.

o Exercise.

o Relax.

During a Moon Void of Course, DON’T:

o Make important plans–they’ll never happen or will happen

differently than expected.

o Brainstorm–new ideas never manifest or will backfire.

o Start anything new–things initiated are never finished or

take much longer than expected to complete. New

acquaintances made are short-lived. If you meet someone

during a VOC, the interaction will not be meaningless, but

probably different than you expected.

o Buy anything of importance–purchases made will never be

used, will break down, or will have to be returned for unforeseen


o Do anything that requires a lot of concentration–it will

require a lot more of your energy. If you have no choice,

meditate beforehand so you’ll be as centered as possible.

o Schedule appointments: they will have to be changed or

rescheduled–or you may get “stood up!”

People who were born during a VOC may not be as affected or

may be affected differently. Follow the cycles and observe

for yourself.

More about Moon Void of Course:

We have observed and experimented with Moon VOC since

the early 1990s. Below is some additional insight based on

our experience:

oWe are always surprised when we talk with seasoned

astrologer friends who ignore Moon VOC. To make any

forecasting and planning advice from astrologers more

valuable, such as when to begin something important,

make sure you factor in Moon VOC. For example, if your

advisor tells you to start a business on a certain day, make

sure there isn’t a VOC when you plan to initiate things.

oIf you want to view the VOC phenomenon more clearly

and test to see how accurate our claims are, observe other

people’s actions during VOC. Without telling them about VOC,

notice what they purchase, decisions they make, people

they meet, plans they make, and things they start under a VOC.

This is exactly the type of objective empirical research we’ve

had success with.

oRoutine purchases during a VOC, such as weekly purchases

at the grocery store, seem to be fine.

oWhen you meet someone new during a VOC, even if you

realize it’s a VOC, your judgment about who they are will usually

be off, and sometimes way off.

oPerception of reality is skewed during a VOC.

oFears you have during a VOC often turn out to be unfounded.

oSunburn, over-eating, over-drinking, and over-spending are


oDreams, especially fearful ones, seem to have no real

significance relating to our lives during VOC. For example,

if your dream during a VOC featured signs that a friend is in

danger, chances are that he or she is not.

oWe still test Moon VOC occasionally. For example, if we

meet someone new during a VOC, we temporarily ignore the

VOC, allow events to unfold naturally, and observe what

happens. But we find that almost always VOC situations will

yield VOC results, even when we didn’t realize it was a VOC.

Moon Void of Course examples:

You meet a new friend during a VOC. Even though you realize

it’s a VOC, there seems to be nothing wrong with the connection

and you can see a lot of potential between the two of you.

After the VOC, you attempt to get together several times but

your schedules never match and then a few weeks later your

new friend tells you she’s moving out of town.

In meditation during a VOC you get a great new idea for

your business. After attempting to implement it several

times, it just never works out and you realize that it may

not be as good of an idea as you had originally thought.

During a VOC you consider certain physical symptoms you’ve

had recently and fear that you could have a serious illness.

After a thorough check-up and tests with your doctor, you

realize that your fears were unfounded; it was merely stress

and a reaction to something you were eating.

During a VOC you eat dinner at a restaurant and order

something you usually don’t. Though it seemed like

a good idea at the time, you experience indigestion.

During a VOC you decide to get your hair cut in a new style.

Later you realize it doesn’t look as good as you thought it


You get dressed in the morning during a VOC and realize

later what seemed like a great fashion choice was actually

a fashion crime.

The power goes out during a VOC after a major storm and

you’re worried it could last for days. The power goes back

on hour later.

Attempting to work around a Moon Void of Course:

If you decide during a non-void time to purchase a new

sweater, for example, and then realize the time on the day

you had planned to buy a sweater is during a VOC, changing

the purchase day or time may not fix the problem of an

ill-fated purchase. Even if you attempt to purchase the

sweater on a different day, they will not have your size or

the right color, it will turn out to be poorly made, you will

lose it, or some other unknown factor will cause you to

realize it was not in your best interest to purchase the


On the other hand, if you follow Moon VOC and would like to

schedule an important meeting, for example, simply chose a

time and day that’s good for you and VOC-free. However,

if someone you’re meeting for the important meeting wants

to (unknowingly) schedule during a Moon Void of Course

time, consider what this could mean: the meeting isn’t for

your or their highest good, it will have to be rescheduled,

or it will be unproductive and/or turn out differently than


Moon Void Information Sources:

Many astrological calendars feature easy to follow moon

void of course information. The American Federation of

Astrologers is one source for accurate astrological information.

They sell calendars that provide the exact days and times for

moon Void of Course, retrogrades, and other astrological

information. Other astrological calendars are

available in metaphysical bookstores and online. Many

astrological software programs also list Moon Void of

Course, and other astrological information.
