While mowing and meditating I was mulling over moons… and Carly Simon.
She has long spoken of being uncomfortable in the spotlight. (click) Moon rules the public, so I looked up her chart…basically, she has a T-square of shyness that includes moon.
Carly is a Cancer Sun stellium, Mercury, Saturn, North Node of Destiny – opposite Moon in Capricorn. Cancer rules the Moon, home, the comfort zone (the 4th house well of psyche), Capricorn rules the career in front of everyone (10th house high noon – the spotlight). Oppositions signal the juggling of energies that are not alike.
The focal point of her T-square is Libra Neptune. Libra also rules dealings with others, and Neptune hides.
She really has to work up the guts (Moon rules the stomach) to step out of her Cancer shell, and with Pluto the transformer in Leo, the sign of the stage ~ she generates the inner energy to do it…but like all things Pluto it is not easy.
so on to void moons…
A void moon is traditionally a time for meditation and quiet, I treat it like a dark moon – a time to retreat and regroup in the comfort zone.
Void moons occur when the moon isn’t making aspects to any other planets before leaving the sign it’s in.
It is adrift at sea, so to speak – no anchor with other energies. Moon fluctuates anyway, in a void phase we go f a r o u t . . .
Subconscious drives kick in ~ the public is adrift as well.
You read earlier that Libra also rules dealings with others, the public strangers (not weird Uranus strangers, just people you don’t know). Libra is Venus ruled.
Venus rules $$$, love and social stuff….so void moons are times of pondering these things with the self more so than taking action with the other.
First house Mars / Aries the outward bound self – juggles with – the more retiring, attracting 7th house other Venus / Libra.
Void moons are times of contemplation and hoarding (Taurus) the emotions… shhhh… keep it close to the vest sort of thing.
That is why it is not a good idea to initiate actions publicly under a void moon ~ social stuff is adrift. If you are working on something you have already started, hunkering down and finishing quietly, I don’t see a problem – otherwise, it is best to wait.
Meditate, go inside, pull cards and do divination for yourself, seek internal guidance and give your subconscious instincts the reins.
Good time for girl power and clannish gatherings with people you know..? The answer is yes for me…for you…?… I leave that to you. A couple of close galpals in the den sounds great, a dinner party becomes a group and is less so. Think tribal moontime girl stuff…go to the cave and cook with fire.
Creativity is deep and from the well – take the darkest moon and go deeper and darker into the void.
Publicly…no one is listening ~ no one hears you from inside the well, ya know….?
Everyone is in their OWN WELL and gazing into their OWN NAVEL.
Moon is Mother, water, wells and amniotic fluid.
Venus rules Navels.
Can you feel this void moon..?…it is pregnant with possibilities…
…from behind the veil…
