What is a Void
of Course Moon?
The moon orbits the Earth over a period of 29.5 days from new
moon to new moon, changing signs every 2.25 days. When a moon
is considered void of course it means that the moon has made
it last major aspect in that sign, and will not aspect another
celestial body until it changes signs.
Many interactions (transits) occur between the moon and various
planets as it cycles around the earth every month. Each aspect
typically lasts only a few hours, and there are typically 13
void periods each month, which can last from a few minutes to
hours, sometimes as long as several days.
The moons transit through each sign sets the stage to affect
our feelings. The moon is connected with our emotional life which
changes daily. As the moon aspects various planets, this too
can affect our moods and feelings, playing a role in the outcome
of events that occur in our lives.
As the moon enters its void of course phase, it is as though
it is taking a rest. For a short time we may feel out of sorts
and it is considered best not to make major decisions or purchases
during a void of course phase. Sometimes, we may not even notice
this period it is so subtle, but decisions made during this period
will often not turn out as expected. During these periods it
is best to focus on spiritual matters or reflect, rather than
act, if possible.
Following are the void of course periods for the next 30 days.

Jupiter in favorable
aspect to the Sun (Trine, conjunction, sextile ) is among the
most favorable periods of life. Generally, health is good, spirits
are above par, life is prosperous, and it is a time of new opportunities
on the horizon. If there have been health issues, Jupiter represents
a time of healing and if for any reason disappointment or misfortune
has occurred, Jupiter energy is favorable in every way in terms
of bringing life back into balance, in a more harmonious manner.
If obstacles have been placed in your path, Jupiter will ease
the way around the obstacles through new opportunities or your
path will be made easier as a result of his rays. No planet or
transit is ever nullified in it's totality, but If you chart
shows other transiting planets affecting you in an adverse way,
Jupiter will serve as a form of personal protection, that is,
the adverse planets will usually not live up to their full potential
or a solution to the problem will be shown, or a better path
taken. Jupiter is in favorable aspect to the Sun about 25 per
cent of the time.
This year (2010) Jupiter is in Pisces most of the year favorably
affecting water and Earth signs. If you are a Pisces, Jupiter
in your own sign should bring a better than average year in many
ways. It is a once every 12 year occurrence, and you have every
chance of success whatever your undertaking. If you are a Cancer,
Jupiter is in great aspect to your Sun and favorable for publishing,
travel, education, dealing with foreign people, and success in
whatever endeavor you pursue, including new relationships. Scorpios
have Jupiter in their 5th house of children, friends and love
affairs and it is here you will prosper this year. Taurus Sun
Signs have Jupiter in their 11th house of friends, hopes and
wishes and have every chance of excelling with groups or corporate
entities, and in the area of whatever their hopes and wishes
may lie. Capricorns, especially those in the early degrees of
their sign (1-5 degrees) can use all the help they get from Jupiter
in the area of 3rd house matters, a more upbeat mental state,
short trips, conversation communicating, writing and in every
way your daily interaction with the world should improve.
June 6-September 9 Jupiter enters Aries for 3 months brightening
life for Fire/Air signs born in the early degrees of your sign.
(1-5 degrees) If you are an early Aries, Sagittarius, Leo, Gemini
or Aquarius you will benefit throughout the summer with Jupiter
in Aries respecting your Sun. It will return again for 6 more
months late January, 2011.
Jupiter re-enters Pisces September 8, 2010-January 22. It goes
direct after a 4 month retrograde period October 18 at 23 degrees
of Pisces and if this is hitting your Sun or a personal planet
in your chart you should feel the positive affects in a remarkable
Jupiter/Sun is a favorable influence financially and in general
helps money matters go smoothly with fewer obstacles or delays.
It is the most favorable of influences for applying for a new
job or dealing with any money issues at all, or for that matter
legal matters and situations. If you are under the influence
of other heavy outer planets affecting your money situation their
negative effects will not be as marked, and it may show a new
path to financial recovery. If you have to go to court it would
almost always indicate success, unless there was a very heavy
contradictory planetary influence.
It is favorable for all types of honors and recognition, and
achievement. It is a positive time to ask for favors, and it
indicates favorable interaction with governments and government
agencies. It indicates the clearing of the way for accomplishment
of your ends. Whatever you undertake has a greater chance of
success and unless other aspects show it, whatever you begin
at this time has a far greater chance of success than at other
During the times Jupiter aspects the Sun individuals have greater
potential for living up to your ambitions and fulfilling your
dreams and ambitions. "Luck" has a greater chance of
occurring at this time.
Jupiter-Sun is favorable for dealing with men. It is fortunate
for the men in your life, Father, husband, boyfriend, and indicates
prosperity on the male side of the family. It also indicates
dealings with foreign people and creates foreign connections
and travel to other places and countries.
As Jupiter is representative of men, women at this time are more
likely to meet a man who plays a significant role in her social
and romantic life, and it indicates men, in a general sense in
all charts. This is the time to start new relationships, and
enter into new arrangements whether business or personal. It
brings men into the life who who play a beneficial or important
part of your destiny and at times indicates marriage. If other
transits allow, it is a very favorable time to marry. It represents
younger men, married men, foreign men, attorneys, Dr's and men
who are in some away connected with law or medicine, education,
or are successful in their own fields. The relationships you
begin at this time, will likely pay a significant role, especially
for the water signs (we've waited for this now since 2006, you
Jupiter expands whatever it touches and this can include your
waistline. Those with Jupiter aspecting their Sun are more prone
to weight gain than at other times. "Times are good, let's
eat" could be called a common motto with a Jupiter/Sun aspect.
On the other hand, Jupiter brings a new courage and desire for
newness and positivity to the life which could include looking
and feeling better, thus diet and exercise. It takes some willpower
to utilize these energies, but it does happen.
Words representative of Jupiter include courage, newness, banking,
bonds, ,abundance, ambassadors, academic, aristocratic, legal,
medical, careless, costly, comfortable, complacency, laziness,
excessive, extravagant, formal, finances, good-will, important,
income, jovial, luxury, lucky, opulence, reckless, rich, peace,
peaceful death, inheritance.
At times, Jupiter in good aspect to the Sun creates a type of
energy where no great effort is exerted or attention is not paid
to your life in some area resulting in carelessness and careless
decisions. It can create a false sense that security and good
times will go on forever, when this is not the case. It is perfect
for vacations and trips and the only drawback is things go so
smoothly, the time slips away without the individually making
significant effort to achieve their goals. In which case, life
should be free of major worries for a while and you can get down
to the business called living life. With Jupiter, the opportunities
are there-the time is yours-the rest is up to you.

Neptune - The Shadow Voice of Love
I seem to have loved
you in numberless forms, numberless times, In life after life,
in age forever.
Neptune is the quiet voice within, urging us to seek the ideal
love we secretly dream of. Neptune can lift us to the highest
of highs, give us a deep spiritual connection, and fulfillment
of our dream. Alternatively, it can sink us to the lowest of
lows, to a deluded, debased, unfulfilled, self sacrificing and
unhappy union with another that few people would actually call
love. It all depends on how Neptune aspects the planets in your
chart both natally, and as a transiting planet at different times
in your life.
Neptune represents the
dream, film-maker, unconditional love, religion and spirituality,
psychic ability, trances, imagination, spiritual connections,
death, drugs, crack, drug dealers, prostitutes, strip clubs,
alcoholism, lies, deception, illusion and delusion, to name just
a few of the words that describe this most complex of planets.
It is the most mis-understood and overlooked of planets in the
zodiac. To some extent Neptune is a generational planet, and
some of its characteristics will be shared with everyone born
in your generation. It also aspects each natal chart individually,
creating situations that are unique to you. It is for us to understand
it's placement in our charts, and what it is actually calling
for us to find and experience or to avoid altogether. Neptune
can represent both ecstasy and chaos.
Your experiences in
love depend to some extent upon how Neptune is aspected in your
individual chart. If you were born with Neptune in easy transit
to the planet Venus, and other personal planets in your chart
you may easily find the love of your dreams. If Neptune is in
hard aspect to Venus or other planets you may have to be more
careful about getting involved with the wrong types, people who
will take advantage of you, and drag you down.
If you were born July
24, 1929-October 3, 1942, or April 18, 1943-August 2, 1943, you
have Neptune in Virgo. Virgo is the natural ruler of the sixth
house of health, work, service to others' and diet and fitness.
Neptune in Virgo individuals may feel they experience a great
deal of self-sacrifice where love is concerned, or confusion
around the above areas. Many individuals of this generation feel
they have sacrificed a great deal in service to their family
or others' in their quest, and daily commitment to love. Health
can sometimes be impaired by overwork, and these individuals
would have no time for a lazy partner. Other's lack in this area
may cause a great deal of unhappiness or sadness, they are left
with the feeling of shouldering too much of the responsibility.
Often you seek perfection. The lesson of Neptune is Virgo is
the realization few individuals can come up to the standard of
perfection, and that real love is not dependent upon shouldering
all of the material and financial burdens, or making continual
sacrifices in these areas, or requiring your partner to do so.
If you were born with
Neptune in the latter degrees of the sign Virgo-roughly August
1941-July of 1943, you are experiencing Uranus opposing Neptune
during the year 2010. This transit creates confusion, lack of
clarity, the potential for breakups, erratic behavior on the
part of yourself or your partner, which calls for the need for
change and the acceptance of change. You may experience a lack
of cooperation on the part of your partner, confusion of goals
and objectives, and deception, as well as disruption of the personal
life. Additionally, as Saturn retrogrades back into Virgo April-July
of this year you may experience disappointment, depression, and
the need to look at your partnerships in a very realistic manner.
Saturn leaves Virgo July 22.
If you were born October 4, 1942-April 17, 1943 or August 2,
1943-December 25, 1955, or March 10, 1956-October 19, 1956, you
were born with Neptune is Libra. Libra is the natural ruler of
the seventh house of marriage and partnerships, and those born
of this generation often experience confusion and lack of clarity
in this area. Often these people feel they have been betrayed
by others' both personally and professionally. Often, the partner
is not seen clearly, and you may discover certain aspects of
your partners' life that you did not know existed. Furthermore,
it is the house of open enemies and often people with this placement
may experience underhanded dealings with others at times in their
life. You are idealistic toward your partners and often place
them on a pedestal. You may attract a Neptunian type: alcoholics,
drug addicts or very sensitive or artistic souls. At times you
could view your partner as an enemy, but basically you are loyal.
The lesson of Neptune in Libra is to remember true love does
not require you to play the martyrdom role, and that viewing
your partner in a realistic light will lead to a sounder relationship.
If you were born with
Neptune in the early degrees of Libra, roughly the Neptune in
Libra period between 1942-early 1945 you have been experiencing
2 major transits this year. Pluto square Neptune relates to psychological
coercion by or toward the individual and the need to understand
and regenerate the subconscious mind and what is going on within
yourself and your relationship. This transit can relate to deception
from or toward the individual, and depression. It can lead to
a lack of emotional objectivity, emotional isolation, and the
stimulation of unpleasant memories. If your Neptune degree is
1 or 2 degrees this transit will occur once more in the summer,
if it is in the 3-6 degree range the transit will continue into
next year. Pluto transits generally call for a regeneration or
end of existing circumstances.
Secondly, if your Neptune
degree is within 1-5 degrees, you have been experiencing Saturn
conjunct Neptune. This transit relates to disappointment, depression,a
nd the need to look at your partnerships in a very realistic
manner. If your Neptune is within 1-3 degrees of Libra you will
experience great stress and tension in your life June-August
as Uranus moves into the sign Aires and opposes your Neptune.
This will create a grand square with Saturn conjunct Neptune,
opposing Uranus, and squared by Pluto. If your relationship has
been limping along it may well break up all together at this
time. If your relationship is basically sound, issues will surface,
but it should withstand the stress and be stronger for it.
If you were born December
25, 1955-March 12, 1956, or October 20, 1956- June 16, 1957,
or August 5, 1957-January 4, 1970, or May 4, 1970-November 6,
1970, you have Neptune in Scorpio. Scorpio in the natural ruler
of the eighth house of sex, other peoples' money and values as
well as joint resources, and it in these areas that Neptune will
manifest itself in your life. It also represents the house of
in depth psychology, death and transformation. Positive aspects
with Neptune can mean you have spiritual and mystical insights
into the hidden realms of life and the knowledge there is really
no death, only transformation.
As the eighth house
is connected with sex you may experience vague and uncertain
states connected to your sexual involvement with others' and
where to draw boundaries. With some people of this generation
sex may exude an all powerful influence, and coined a generation
where 'sexual addictions', are nothing unusual. Some engage in
sexual acts that are debasing or considered out of the realm
of what society considers normal. Otherwise you may always be
sexually dreaming of someone other than the person you are with
as the real thing may rarely live up to your expectations. Or
alternatively, you live a life in a spiritually uplifting manner,
manifesting the virtues of sacred love. Rarely, though does the
latter happen. Occasionally, Neptune in Scorpio individuals become
celibate by choice.
The eighth house is
the part of your chart that concerns jointly held finances and
assets, and you may experience confusion, and lack of clarity
in this area, or it could become a major source of tension in
your relationships. Some people with Neptune in Scorpio try to
avoid taxes and repaying debt. The lesson of Neptune in Scorpio
can be gained by choosing to build personal integrity and honesty
in all of your dealings with others in the areas of sex and money,
as well as the realization that a lack of boundaries in the area
of sexuality should only be considered appropriate if your partner
is in agreement.
If you were born in
the latter years of the Neptune in Scorpio period, late 1968-1970
you are experiencing the generational Neptune square Neptune.
This is a time when subconscious emotional problems may surface,
and it can bring about depression, psychological withdrawal,
or overindulgence. Confusion, delusion and illusion may be a
theme during this year. You will have planetary help, however
in the form of Uranus in Pisces trining Neptune, bringing about
a new way of looking at matters, as well as spiritual insights
and luck with technology. As Saturn retrogrades back into Virgo
April-July your thinking should start to stabilize and you will
further benefit from Jupiter trine Neptune this year, another
planetary configuration that will bring spiritual gifts, improvement
in your relationships, compassion and religious and spiritual
inspiration as well as increased intuition.
If you were born January
5, 1970-May 3, 1970, November 7, 1970-January 19, 1984, or June
24, 1984-November 20, 1984 you were born with Neptune in Sagittarius.
Sagittarius is the natural ruler of the ninth house of travel,
education, religion, as well as laws and moral and ethical values.
Sagittarius is the ruler of outdoors and 'wide open spaces'.
In true Sagittarius fashion, many of these people spread themselves
too thin. The negative side of Neptune is Sagittarius is pompous
or dictatorial behavior on the part of the self or partner. As
the ninth house is concerned with ethical and moral values you
may have high morals, although confusion and martyrdom may enter
the picture, whether it be you or your partner. You or your partner's
level of education may not connect you with the job you wish
to attain and this can cause problems as well. You may view higher
education as 'God," The ninth house concerns your outlook
toward the world and you and your partner may have vague ideas
on where your place is in the world. There may be overindulgence
in drugs or alcohol. You may experience religious differences
with your partner or potential partners. There can be a lack
of awareness concerning the morals of others.' The lesson of
Neptune is Sagittarius is to understand you have an inner sense
that with time and age you will learn to trust, and stand up
for your own convictions.
If you were born in the latter years of the Neptune in Sagittarius
period, 1982-1984 you are experiencing the generational Uranus
square Neptune this year. This transit can bring about a desire
to evade responsibility by overindulging in drugs, alcohol, or
other vices, or avoid responsibility and commitment altogether.
It is a transit of confusion, and with Neptune there is always
a possibility of being the victim or perpetrator of lies and
deception, or simply misunderstandings. There can be confusion
concerning goals and objectives, deception in joint finances,
business matters relating to taxes, insurance and inheritance,
disruption of family and domestic affairs and poor judgment in
the choice of friends and partners.
If you were born January
19, 1984-June 24, 1984, November 22, 1984-January 28, 1998, August
24, 1998-November 27, 1998 you were born with Neptune in Capricorn.
Capricorn is the natural ruler of the tenth house of priorities,
business, career, reputation, and your place in society, and
it is within these areas that the planet of illusion, delusion
and confusion may make itself known. You may have a romantic
ideal connected with our place in the real world or that of your
partner. With Neptune in Capricorn you may believe the answer
to life is years of hard work to carve out your career of choice,
placing love and family on the back burner. Neptune in Capricorn
questions who and what can be trusted. With Neptune in Capricorn
you may at times feel that you are constantly in an sea of moralistic,
nose-to-the-grindstone Puritanism, and must be productive at
all times, never really enjoying yourself or doing things for
pleasure. Alternatively, your partner may take this attitude.
The lesson of Neptune
in Capricorn is is not to become moralistic if your partner doesn't
null share all of your views, and understand you are not your
business, and all work and no play makes Jack a dull-or single-boy
If your were born within
the early years of the Neptune in Capricorn period 1984-1987
you are experiencing the generational Pluto conjunct Neptune.
This transit can create depression and often relates to situations
involving lies, deception and miss-information. Your business
life may be taking a drastic change of course during this period.
You may experience seemingly miraculous supernatural experiences.
There may be peculiar circumstances involving corporate and jointly
held assets there is a need to regenerate the subconscious mind
and ideas held from the past.
Additionally, you will
experience Saturn squaring Neptune. This transit is a negative
influence for relationships, often leading to disappointment,
illusion and delusion, resulting in break ups. Past misdeeds
may be revealed, and there may be feelings of guilt and it can
become hard to deal with life on a day to day basis.
When Uranus enters Aries the last week of May, it will square
Neptune creating and a lack of clarity where goals are concerned.
You may desire to evade responsibility, and those around you
may be deceptive, or you may be inclined to stretch the truth
or avoid it altogether. June 22-August 14, 2010 Uranus, Saturn,
and Pluto will create a T-Square involving your Neptune and relationships
and other situations may be stretched to the breaking point.
It will take a strong relationship to withstand such a configuration.
Neptune entered Aquarius
January 30, 1998, and it will remain there until February of
2012. Neptune in Aquarius is the natural ruler of the eleventh
house of friends, hopes and wishes, groups and organizations,
and it is in these areas those born during this period will focus,
idealize or delude themselves. Aquarius represents the 'world
view,' society at large as well as idealism. The final chapter
has yet to be written about this generation, but the harsher
aspects may cause these individuals to seek out, or relate to
individuals who delude them in some way, possible through drugs,
alcohol or some type of religious belief or practice. Aquarius
is the sign of the people, and America has an Aquarius moon.
Aquarian's are known for their compassion of those less fortunate
in the world, and to strangers, but those who live with them
can at times consider them cold.
Aquarius can represent
brilliance at its best, and represents the common good. It will
be up to these individuals to remember that America was an original
and unique experiment in democracy, which separated it from all
the other kingdoms of Europe. Thus, the lesson for these people
may well prove to be that while the common good of all individuals
is always important, maintaining a one on one relationship requires
focus upon your individual partner and an appreciation for all
that is individual. If there were ever a group of people born
who would be proponents of a one world government, these individuals
may well fit the bill.
