What is a Void of Course Moon?
What is a Void of Course Moon? I happened to have had correspondence
with the late Al H. Morrison, whose amazing research - covering
hundreds of years revealed this to be a real and verifiable phenomena.
FYI, Al told me I had a "difficult" chart, which is true but is yet
another example of how the myth of The Hero's Journey applies in daily
life, my daily life, as I wrote about yesterday (down a few posts in my
Here's some info from Al Morrison himself about the
Void of Course Moon, which I have in my chart, as well as a Retrograde
Mercury for a total of six retrograde planets, with Neptune being
stationary retrograde (which stamped me as a psychic at birth). FYI, my
wife Amy Zerner was born during a stationary retrograde of Uranus, which stamped her as a genius at birth (just sayin!)
"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.
