A “Void Moon” or “Void of Course Moon” (or “VOC moon” for short) makes no significant aspects until it enters the next sign. Its void period is thought to be a poor time for starting new projects or making concerted effort toward existing plans.

According to William Lilly, the Moon in Cancer (Moon’s rulership), Taurus (Moon’s exaltation), Sagittarius and Pisces (signs ruled by Jupiter, the Great Benefic) “performeth somewhat.” Lee Lehmann reports that she has tested this, and “you can take it to the bank.” Another way of putting how this works in an astrological forecast is that, when an action is taken during the void period in one of these signs, you get “unanswered success.” That is, the lack of planetary action prevents your action from being denied.


Daily Astrology Forecast, December 2018

Saturday, December 1

After a month in lighthearted Sag, Mercury reenters Scorpio. Our attention once again takes a turn to the depths; we’re apt to feel impatient with trivial and superficial conversation. With the messenger planet retrograde, we can retrieve our inner voice, uncovered buried memories and truth and do effective research.

Early morning favors the inner nerd, with Moon in analytic Virgo contacting brilliant Uranus before going VOC on a sextile to Mercury 6:34 am (9:34 ET). At 6:49 am (9:49 ET) she enters Libra.

This afternoon, equable Libra Moon’s sextile to expansive Jupiter is great for teamwork or for renewing a promotion, a shared project or efforts at negotiation and justice. It’s also great for socializing, making peace with an ex, and enjoying a fun or romantic lunch or early dinner.

Enjoy this fun Saturday while you can! At 8:44 pm (11:44 ET), Moon squares cut-the-crap Saturn, a rather stern aspect that—with Moon in her Last Quarter—favors decluttering and organizing our space and closet. Avoid dishing out or taking on guilt trips.

Affirmation:
Divine love flows through my life in a deep stream that touches me through all situations and people now.

Sunday, December 2

Don’t let this day slip by: its combination of creativity and daring can help us move forward.

Exercise caution while driving, using knives or for that matter, in almost any physical activity. Save wild adventures, extreme sports and situations requiring PR skills for another day.

We can productively use this one to consult with a coach, therapist, group or healer that contributes to our confidence and path of power. Mercury in deep Scorpio makes a quincunx to Uranus in Aries, emboldening us to see beyond appearances and official versions, and reconnect with our authentic self. Moon is in social Libra, but her aspects favor independent creativity and mystical experience over superficial connections or just hanging out.

Moon’s ruler, Venus, moves to join Mercury in deep Scorpio today, and Sun squares restless Mars. We’ll feel the urge to do something transformative, volunteer to help a group or person in need, and focus on something that matters.

Affirmation:
I naturally attract whatever I need to fulfill my mission now.

Monday, December 3

This morning’s unique energies are worth planning for. Moon in analytic Libra opposes rebellious Uranus: leave key communications for this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon, unless you plan to end a relationship. Assuming not, we can journal, attend a 12-step group, and plan for or work on something independent that expresses our authentic self.

At 10:16 am (1:16 pm ET), Moon goes VOC, entering Scorpio at 11:55 am. She joins Venus, facilitating deep encounters for healing or intimacy. Contact someone to clear the air, visit a therapist, hold a prayer or meditation group, have a deep talk, take your love object to lunch or dinner, or seek out someone who can help with a key goal.

Affirmation:
I look at my feelings, and connect with others from this center now.

Tuesday, December 4

This morning, make an appointment with your thinking chair or divine guidance system. Moon in bold Scorpio harmonizes with dynamic Mars and intuitive Neptune, and we can direct the constructive impulse of Number 4 in breakthrough actions or research—investigate a mystery, back up something we feel strongly about, support a pet cause, close a cycle, or take a single, daring sword swipe to wipe out what seemed to be an obstacle.

With Mercury retrograde in Scorpio and Moon in her Balsamic phase, follow-through and finishing things works better than making new beginnings.

Affirmation:
I allow myself to trust my intuition and I act on my instincts now.

Wednesday, December 5

If you have important work, try and get it done this morning, when Moon Scorpio works well with today’s numerology of 5, ruled by Mars, Scorpio’s co-ruler. Try a new way of pushing for results on something started before October 28, do research, investigate a mystery, back up a strongly held viewpoint, support a pet cause, close a cycle, do something daring. Whatever you end up doing, steer clear of manipulative dynamics.

In preparation for tomorrow’s New Moon, review a dream board or other visualization materials, get rid of those that are obsolete and collect colors, images, poster board, your adhesive stick and whatever else you need to renew and enrich your intentions on tomorrow’s New Moon portal.

We should get this done before 1:53 pm (4:43 ET), when Moon goes VOC, followed by a square from Sun to Neptune that’s great for inner work, emotional healing and art. We can apply these energies independently or connect with angels or a teacher, coach or prayer group. Save communications requiring clarity or normalcy for another day.

At 6:49 pm (9:49 ET), Moon enters Sagittarius, inviting us to practice forgiveness, meditate, and to begin to plan our intentions for tomorrow’s New Moon.

Affirmation:
Conditions can’t block my progress. Others’ beliefs can’t block me. The Universe moves me forward to complete success through infinite channels now.

Thursday, December 6

This morning is high on good vibes and prosperity. Both Thursday and today’s number, 6, are related to Jupiter, and this morning the planet of good fortune is kissed by the Moon in Sagittarius, which it also rules.

We can use this day to promote something, gather with friends and colleagues, contact the angels, do business; work on a meaningful project.

At 8:11 pm (11:11 ET), Moon squares Mars and a bit later, Neptune, reducing our PR potential. We’ll get more mileage out of staying at home and preparing our New Moon’s intentions, dream board or other visualization materials—like a bank statement, invoices, a title deed, airplane ticket or other documents to visualize with. Moon’s portal is exact at 11:20 pm (2:20 am ET).

At 15-16 Sagittarius she activates the following Sabian symbol:

SEA GULLS FLY AROUND A SHIP IN EXPECTATION OF FOOD.

The easily acquired dependence of psychic desires upon the stimulation of social circumstances… The seagulls here symbolize the wild and normally untamable energies of the soul, that can develop a kind of domesticated dependence upon the by-products of human incursions into the unconscious (the sea).

This lunation squares tomorrow’s Mars-Neptune conjunction in Pisces, so we do want to watch for what fish we may be happening to draw from the sea of the collective unconsciousness. Be ready to throw them back in if they turn out to be drunken or deceptive. The aspect also increases the potential of Sag Moon to develop our intuition, and tune into the direction sent by our angels and/or spirit guides for the best paths of action.

Mercury the messenger turns direct, although in post-retrograde shadow, it’s best for efforts and intentions related to something we’ve tried or begun before October 28.

Sit on the edge of your bed and repeat this affirmation ten times before going to sleep:
Guardian angel, please strengthen my ability to receive, interpret and act on divine guidance now and always.

Friday, December 7

Mars, still on the doorstep of yesterday’s New Moon, perfects its conjunction to Neptune. This joining of brawn and fog could be a bit slippery. Avoid speeding, take special care if you operate machinery or use knives, and go light on liquor or other mind-altering substances.

We’ll do well to keep a low profile, and direct our courage in spiritual activities, like creating daring visualization tools or trying a new form of prayer or meditation.

Affirmation:
I invoke my guides to show me the best way to direct my spiritual and physical energies now.

Saturday, December 8

Still on the doorstep of conjunction from Mars to Neptune, yesterday’s warnings for physical and psychic caution remain in force.

Today’s numerology of power number 8 works well with waxing Moon in productive Capricorn; we can get on track with an important goal. Her sextile to Venus particularly favors people connections and finances. We can use it to do business, enjoy a pleasant lunch, or visit an elder, or other Saturnian activities like building the balance in a bank account, restructuring a group, or starting a diet or exercise program.

Tonight’s conjunction from Moon to Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, is great for organization and doing magic for personal goals, discipline, order, structure, strategy, or self-control.

Affirmation:
I am worthy of harvesting finished results. I see them and I receive them now.

Sunday, December 9

As Moon in practical Capricorn harmonizes with creative Neptune and daring Mars, we can act on some of the intuitive guidance we’ve been receiving the last few days.

Mercury trines wounded-healer Chiron, making this a great morning to journal, use deep prayer or mantras, see a therapist, participate in a healing group, write letters to leaders, start a petition or speak out in favor of a pet cause. Late morning is more energetic, great for cleaning the car, organizing the garage or having a spiritual adventure.

Tonight things get serious: pragmatic Capricorn Moon joins intense Pluto, favoring inner work or taking a courageous initiative to help someone.

Affirmation:
I invite the angel of service to prosper through me now.

Monday, December 10

Finally! A Monday that’s good for work! Moon in constructive Capricorn sextiles Mercury in deep Scorpio. We can promote or communicate something that could make this month a game changer. Or tackle a bureaucratic procedure or other key paperwork we’ve been postponing.

Do it early; at 1:27 pm (4:27 ET) Moon goes VOC on a square to wild Uranus. Now we can enjoy some downtime until 3:39 pm (6:39 ET), when Moon enters energetic Aquarius.

This afternoon and evening, with Mercury moving to quincunx rebellious Uranus, are not so great for PR or negotiations. Focus on independent creative work or activism, or brainstorm with friends and colleagues who stimulate—and put up with—your original nature.

Affirmation:
I recognize what makes me different, and this clarity attracts authentic opportunities now.

Tuesday, December 11

Moon in Aquarius sextiles expansive Jupiter, planet of angels—who also happen to connect with the day’s magic number 11. Our affirmations and meditations of compassion, forgiveness and love can help us move into the holiday season on a higher wavelength. These loving vibrations can infuse Christmas messages or cards, purchasing or making gifts, re-launching a promotion for a business, or working on a humanitarian project related to the holidays, like a soup kitchen or effort for those affected by the California fires.

And, with Mercury in courageous Scorpio connecting with Moon’s ruler Uranus in Aries, we can make a breakthrough in research, thinking, intuition, activism or something related to documents. Try to direct your enthusiasm and keep it from morphing into self-righteousness or a soap-box sermon. If we keep on this day’s upside, connections with others can be stimulating, productive, and memorable.

Affirmation:
I love the divine being of me and of others, and this energy lifts my frequency and the planetary frequency now.

Wednesday, December 12

Waxing Moon in Aquarius, sign of friendship, harmonizes with Sun in expansive Sagittarius, making this morning great for many things including socializing, doing business or collaborating in a cause. We can reach out to others, enjoy a holiday brunch with a group, do something unique to fight for an ideal, enrich our creativity or simply try something new.

Things get even more magical after 3:43 pm (6:43 ET), when Mercury enters Sagittarius, creating a great line-up with Sun and ruler Jupiter in the sign of faith, expansion and adventure. We may feel called to promote something, give an online class or produce a video, share the cheer, mend fences, do PR, go to a fair or on a trip, simply go out of our way to help someone, and invite others to join us.

Affirmation:
I move forward in faith, and angels go before me now.

Thursday, December 13

Moon goes VOC before dawn, entering Pisces at 4:40 am (7:40 ET). Morning is best for inner work, prayer, meditation, and connecting with angels and spirit guides. Public promotions and connections with others flow better tonight, when a trine to Venus, a square to Jupiter, and a sextile to Pisces favor attending a spiritual group or gathering, reading and writing poetry, creating art, sharing a romantic dinner or encounter with a soul mate, contacting light beings, preparing Christmas gifts and creating a vision board for prosperity or romance.

Affirmation:
I radiate love to myself and others, and I naturally attract the highest and best situations now.

Friday, December 14

A combination of Mars and Neptune makes this a highly creative day. Today’s number, 5, likes to try something new, while Moon in dreamy Pisces emphasizes subtle forces and creative imagination. Moon also joins Pisces’ ruler, Neptune, intensifying all things mystical and artistic. We can pray, meditate, repeat mantras, consult the angels, or do a spontaneous act of kindness. It’s well worth taking some time to analyze your dreams or just listen to your intuition, write down its guidance and figure out a step you can take, however small, to act boldly on this guidance.

An afternoon conjunction from Moon to Mars can give us the push we need to break through perfectionism or whatever may have been keeping us from moving. Whatever you do, try to keep an even keel and avoid taking things personally, as these energies can connect with unexpected aggressions.

Direct your brawn in something worthwhile and avoid drinking while under the influence, dark alleys and questionable situations. If possible, keep a low profile tonight.

Affirmation:
Angels of freedom, please unleash my warrior spirit to open a new path now.

Saturday, December 15

Moon goes VOC on reaching her First Quarter before dawn. In Pisces, she still performs, helping us take an intuitive look at the intentions we set at or around last week’s New Moon.

At 23-24 Pisces, Moon activates the following Sabian symbol:

ON A SMALL ISLAND SURROUNDED BY SEA, PEOPLE ARE SEEN LIVING IN CLOSE INTERACTION… The need to consciously accept one’s personal limitations in order to concentrate one’s energies and live a centered and fulfilled life.

Every individualized person is a small island… the ego fulfills a necessary function as it sets boundaries and gives a specific character to the consciousness… The first duty of any man or woman is to be what he or she is as an individual.

The symbol works nicely with Moon’s morning conjunction to Chiron, making for the weekend’s best downtime. Journal, meditate, visit a therapist or support group; in one way or another get in touch with your true self.

Enjoy the silence and some time to yourself, as well as connecting with your spirit guides and angels before 4:44 pm (7:44 ET), when Moon enters Aries and the tempo switches, revving us up and helping push through resistance to act. This evening, the mood will veer towards action—dancing or dining at a new place, visiting someone we’ve been thinking about, taking blankets or sending food to a shelter for those affected in the California fires, or some other worthy cause. If you’re not in the mood to go out, this energy can help you figure out how to use the new printer, and design a promotion or finish a proposal to print out on it.

Affirmation:
I am intuitively guided to make positive change, and I act on my guidance now.

Sunday, December 16

This is a potentially transformative and productive day, with two productive sextiles—one from socially adept Venus to constructive Saturn, and the other from bold Mars to intense Pluto.

With both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, sign of self-reliance, we can make special headway on the area of our natal chart occupied by the sign of the goat. Saturn shows us what we’re building, while Pluto sheds light on how we evolve and discover our power. Whether you’re recommitting to a cause, taking a leadership role in a group or your spiritual work to a new level, focusing on business, or re-launching a promotion, now is the moment to move on what counts!

Moon in Aries will give us the will. But stay mindful: her square to stern Saturn at 11:21 am (2:21 ET) can lead us into a briar patch of frustration or emotional blackmail. Plan for independent down time to meditate and keep your cool from around 10:30 am (1:30 ET) to 1:30 pm (4:30 ET).

Avoid extreme sports and speeding on the road, and take special care when using blades and machinery. Pause to connect your brain and survey the fray before leaping to it—but do leap.

Affirmation:
Spirit knows the best path for my spiritual and material progress, and carries me on it now.

Monday, December 17

With Mars in sextile to Pluto, Moon in restless Aries, and today’s powerful numerology of 8, we want to move. And we can—although a morning square from Moon to Pluto can bring out the confrontational side of this line up. Direct your drive—and if they arise, feelings of frustration—into achieving some sort of mastery over yourself: write affirmative negations, study, release an activity or goal that’s distracting you from consolidating a higher priority, and find a way to streamline and focus on what really matters.

Interactions with others, promotional initiatives, and in general outward-directed actions, go better this afternoon, when Moon in brazen Aries trines with Sun in dexterous, charming Sagittarius, joining purpose, vision and confidence.

At 11:21 pm (2:21 am ET), Moon goes VOC.

Affirmation:
I visualize and act with confidence, and angels use the energy to open a clear path now.
