What Is a Void Moon?


void of course moon

Void of course (VC, voc, or V/C) moons are often associated with weary times and dragging on. But what the heck does this astrology term mean in astrology?


Void Moon Meaning


A void of course moon means that the transitting moon is not making any aspects to surrounding planets. So, it’s really just dangling around in the sky without holding onto anything. This can happen anywhere from one hour to an entire day, but usually void moons last only a couple hours at a time.


How It Affects Us


A void of course moon causes the world to slow down quite a bit. In fact, the energy of the day can be downright unproductive.


And why is that? If the moon isn't touching any planets, we aren't able to channel our emotions. Our emotions (moon) are still with us—they may just be harder to reach.


For example, if the moon is creating a square to Uranus, we know that our feelings might spontaneously let loose. If the moon is conjunct our natal Saturn, we might be more reserved with our feelings. But if the moon isn't making any connections whatsoever, we aren't able to get in touch with our feelings. It's like moving on auto-pilot all day.


Dos and Don'ts


Do


During a void moon, throw productivity out the window and do these things instead: ✨ Take a bath ✨ Journal your feelings ✨ Stay home and do “you” things ✨ Practice self-care ✨ Sleep ✨ Stretch and meditate


Don’t


During a void moon, focus more on doing nothing. Avoid doing these things: ✨ Go on a first date ✨ Start a new project ✨ Send out a resume or important email ✨ Sign contracts ✨ Exercise (unless you really want to)

✨ Try to call or get in touch with someone

What does the moon mean in astrology?


The moon symbolizes our feelings. It discusses how we like to give and receive love. It indicates where we feel most insecure or hurt. It expresses how we share (or hide) our feelings. Ultimately, it's one of the most intimate parts of our birth chart.
