This article poses a brief explanation of what a void-of-course Moon is, and whaty it means.

The Void-of-Course Moon

A "void-of-course" Moon occurs when the Moon has traveled beyond the point in any given sign when it will make a major aspect to any of the other planets. Major aspects are conjunctions (0 degrees), sextiles (60 degrees), squares (90 degrees), trines (120 degrees) and oppositions (180 degrees). For example, if Jupiter is presently at 24 degrees of, let's say Cancer, and no other planets are transiting beyond 24 degrees of any sign, and the Moon is at 20 degrees Libra, it will exactly "square" Jupiter when it reaches 24 degrees Libra. At that moment, because no other planets are transiting beyond 24 degrees of any sign, the Moon will become void-of-course until it enters the next sign, Scorpio. Now, depending on where planets are positioned, the moon can be void-of-course for as short a time as a minute or two or as long a time as two days or so. In the case above where the Moon becomes void when it reaches 24 degrees Libra, it will be in a void condition for about twelve hours, since it moves about one degree forward every two hours (there are 30 degrees in each sign).

If you are in possession of an astrological calendar, it will display the times when the Moon is in a void condition. An astrological calendar is a handy tool to have, because any project or effort begun under a void moon will not turn out as planned. An old astrologicfal dictum states that if you begin something under a void moon, "nothing will come of the matter," or "the enterprise will not come to fruition."

I remember walking into Barbara Watters' astrology class in Washington, D. C. in late January, 1972, just after Richard Nixon was inaugurated, and hearing her proclaim : "Nixon was inaugurated under a void Moon. He won't finish his term."

So save yourself some trouble. Whenever you initiate any task or project, avoid doing it under a void-of-course Moon.

Not unless you have an computer astrology program, and they're quite pricey.

You are our man

BY FUNAM MAKAMA WIKINUT POETRY
Such compatible sexuality happens only in ones dream, otherwise in reality is some cumming some going and the levels are different
At different times
Lovely clean erotica yours just cumming poetry keep it up

Black just lovely
As Smiths work with fire
And the darkness becomes white,
When the furnace is opened hence BLACK

No problems, I isn’t much of a poet,
Even though I have composed only 7000 poems May God bless wiki nut and trend and the lady
For small mercies
I enjoy now reading you all and drop a line here and there,
As I have no means of communication else, thanks

Life is always colorful
More so in the darkness,
Which is black?
Under the spread of sheets when love is packed
