After the Moon has finished making all of the major planetary aspects it will make in its current Zodiac sign, we say that she is void of course, or VOC.

In general, it’s ideal to plan ahead so you can avoid big events happening during a void of course moon phase and also avoid needing to make big decisions during the time.

You can use electional astrology when planning for various momentous life decisions, such as a wedding date, launching a business, going on a job interview, starting a relationship, opening an important line of communication, or making a serious financial decision..
The Next Void of Course Moon, can also be used to pick the date of a business to start, or for people to get married, or to begin almost any important project. Picking dates is known by astrologers as "electional astrology"..
