The void of course Moon is a “blank slate” period. We are supposed to rest our minds and bodies during this time through meditation, naps, or philosophical thinking. We are not supposed to make any major life changing decisions during this time. Void of course Moon decisions made during Mercury in retrograde, however, actually help more than they hinder because the plans are made objectively and can be thought through later.
Time flies during the void of course moon, and it makes routine hours pass by as seconds. It is because we take that time to stay in our own heads and figure things out, but what we “figure out” never seems to make sense afterwards because our ability to make decisions is skewed.
To people, this period impacts decision making, the way time seems to pass, and concrete occurrences. The ability to make hard-hitting decisions is skewed and not recommended; instead, it’s a time to focus on meditation, thought, and rest. Nothing out of the ordinary from one’s routine should be expected to go as planned.
I believe that the most magical quality of the VOC Moon is the forgetfulness. It can be used to create and forget about a spell or ritual until the results present themselves. Afterward, anxieties and extra influence on spells are lifted because…… you just don’t remember them.
