THE SIGNS AND THEIR MEANINGS
Source: To Stir a Magick Cauldron by Silver Ravenwolf
Moon completes a revolution around the Earth every 29 1/2 days, passing
through the 12 signs of the zodiac and spending about 2 1/2 days in
A special note here: There is a difference between the
actual constellation the moon appears in in the sky and the
astrological constellation. For example, your almanac may say that the
moon is in Taurus, when actually for astrological purposes, it is in
Gemini (30 degrees difference due to the Earth's wobble over time).
Therefore, consult an astrological calendar or book for this
information instead instead of a common almanac.

ventures, but lacking in staying power. Particularly good for starting
financial or medical ventures. This moon is about the self and the ego
and anything ruled by Mars -- knives and sharp things (good time to buy
or make that athame), strength, daring, courage, and lust. This moon is
about quick results. Things occur rapidly, but also quickly pass.

to increase in value. Taurus is about values, possessions, money,
fertility, and Mother Earth. Things begun now become habitual and hard
to alter. Caution and protectiveness is in the air.

write, study, orcommunicate with your family.

personal magick can boomerang with scattered thinking. Express your

very powerful for prophecy, dreams, and deep psychic work. Explore past
lives and secrets. Find things you've lost. Mix potent elixirs,
powders, and perfumes. Avoid getting lost in fantasy. Keep your feet
firmly on the ground.

kinds, inner development, karma, restrictions, secrets revealed,
Moon Void of Course: Never cast
spells while the moon is void of course. The Moon is void of course
during the time between making its last major aspect to a planet in one
sign and its entry into the next sign. The duration of this period can
be as little as a few seconds or more than two days. The exact moment
the Moon enters the new sign ends the void of course period.
*Void of Course Effects*
a void of course period individuals are less focused. Human judgment is
not at its best and consequently decision making tends to suffer. In
the void of course period one should avoid: initiating new activities;
purchasing new items; contacts or meetings with important people;
signing contracts. Business discussions are unlikely to be resolved and
if matters don't fall apart, they will be put off to another time.
one area of benefit is in spiritual pursuits. In doing meditation, one
has no pull towards any particular planetary force and therefore is
able to connect with other planes.
Let's say that we have the
moon phase, date, and time for our spell all worked out. The next step
is to check on whether or not our target time is while the moon is void
of course. If it is, back to the drawing board. If it isn't, full speed
ahead. Check your astrological almanac for void times.
