CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #034 -- Natal Moon VOC, Life Void of Love??
September 21, 2007

We got some very nice feedback about our Venus retrograde article published in our previous Love Letter. Thanks for posting your stories and letting us know how striking the delineations were.

We also mentioned that some changes to our web site are imminent. Read in this issue more about what's happening.

Some time ago, we got a request from a subscriber to research and write something about the natal Moon void of course. We are always all ears to your suggestions -- even if it may take some time to research it all -- and this time we are ready to post our findings about the Moon VOC topic.

What does it mean to have a Moon void of course in the natal chart? Is it something alarming or is it bogus? Does it affect one's love life?

Read on...

Till next time!

Love Forecasts for October 2007

If you are born around November 20, February 17, May 19 or August 21, expect love's sorrow around October 3-4. For some, there may be tears over a beloved one (because of illness or whatever) and for others a secret lover may cause problems.

Also, miscarriages are more likely to occur in this period.

Around October 9, Jupiter at 15° Sagittarius squares Uranus at 15° Pisces bringing relief in a situation. There may be excitement and a breakthrough in juridical matters. A sudden trip belongs to the possibilities too.

Mercury stations at 8° Scorpio and turns retrograde around October 12. This position often indicates vexation and an obsessive mind-set. Something bothers you and you can't let it go.

You can't decide at the moment and it's best to wait till Mercury turns direct again after November 1.

Venus at 4° Virgo conjuncts Saturn and opposes the Moon's North Node around October 13, indicating a loss or a separation, the more so if you are born around May 26, August 28, November 27 or February 23.

If you are born around July 25, October 26, January 23 or April 22 there will be a major and fortunate development after some hard work around October 22-23.

The Sun enters Scorpio around October 23 and conjuncts retrograde Mercury at the same time. Both points at 0° Scorpio denote "obsessions" and a fixed mind-set. There is no way to find compromises now. 0° Scorpio can be a very accident-prone degree with retrograde Mercury here, so beware!

Around October 25, there is relief after some hard work for the ones born around October 24, January 21, April 21 or July 24.

There is excitement and sudden encounters around October 25 when Venus at 15° Virgo opposes Uranus at 15° Pisces. There may be love at first sight but don't expect love to last though and enjoy the moments. Be in for some pleasant surprises too.

What's New on Our Web Site?

Our site management recently launched another module related to Web 2.0, making it possible to increase the interaction between all the visitors of the web site and the ones (experts) behind the web site.

Currently, most web sites are quite static with visitors and surfers just browsing sites for information. And that's it. There is no other interaction involved.

Web 2.0, the so-called 2nd generation of the web, just takes another route in that it makes it possible for the surfers to comment and rate the topics discussed on a web page.

Web 2.0 is a catchall term for user-generated content and interaction with viral spread. It has created legendary business success stories such as MySpace (sharing your life), flickr (photo sharing), and YouTube (video sharing).

Visitors can share their knowledge and experience(s) and post it on the web site so that the whole wide world can read, comment and rate the knowledge and experience(s).

This way, web sites are more and more becoming a real network, living from the knowledge and information that YOU (or any other visitor) provides and posts.

Yes, YOU can contribute and share your original, high-value content and knowledge making a (and very soon, our) web site yet MORE informative.

Because of the interaction involved this is a major step forward.

This process is often called "social networking"; web sites are becoming a platform or open source of information that YOU help to build.

However, if every surfer in the world would be able to freely post, share or comment information without any barrier or control, the web would really suffer from unreliable and false information too. The web would become a trap. Think of the so-called uncontrolled 'splogging' (spam blogs) and false information found on Wikipedia (the biggest internet encyclopaedia).

That's why human beings are absolutely necessary to guard against any abuse of this new application of the web.

An authority has to maintain quality and control.

That's why we at Cosmic Technologies will keep a very close eye on ALL posts and entries and will delete any topic or information that sounds like an advertisement or false information.

Our web site has to remain as clean as possible with top-notch astrological information related to love and related topics.

We are excited to announce that the launching of the Web 2.0 module to our web site is IMMINENT.

Because it's a major upgrade, we'll start gradually and soft-launch this module on some pages first so that we still have control over what's happening when people visit our web site.

We also published a page about the individual zodiac signs in love . Soon, we will analyze every single zodiac sign separately and will then analyze all possible zodiac sign combinations and love matches.

Natal Moon VOC, Life Void of Love??

There is not very much written about the Moon Void of Course in natal charts. Most information is based on principles that are extensively used in horary astrology.

The Moon is considered void of course when she makes no applying major aspect at all before leaving the sign she's in. Major aspects are the conjunction, sextile, square, trine and opposition.

This definition has caused quite some debate, even among horary astrologers in that it's unsure if one has to use the whole sign approach or if one still has to take the orbs of the aspects into account.

Till now, the debate goes on and the definition of a void of course Moon remains controversial.

In our own research we have been taking both schools of thought into account and consider the Moon void of course when it is so according to BOTH methods.

Only this way, the Moon is truly void of course!

When the Moon moves into a void phase, time seems to stand still and nothing will come of the matter.

We investigated this principle based on some business foundation charts in which we could find a true void of course Moon. Interestingly, almost all these companies vanished soon after they were founded (in a time span of about a year or two)!

The same may be true when you go on a date during a true Moon void of course period. The date may be fruitless, unsuitable and nothing will come out of it.

The same holds for job interviews and all other important new decisions: no job interviews when the Moon is truly void of course! It's fruitless and a waste of time.

Learn to apply when the timing is right.

So far about the Moon void of course in electional and horary astrology.

What does it mean to have a void of course Moon in the natal chart?

While our research is not finished and conclusive yet, we are more and more convinced that the Moon is only void of course in a natal chart when the Moon does not make any aspects within orbs.

From the moment the Moon is still in orb, aspecting another planet, we don't consider it to be void of course. That's our preliminary conclusion, but still, more research is needed.

Let's give an exmple: in the natal chart of Hillary Clinton (born October 26, 1947 at 20:00 (08:00 pm) CST in Chicago, IL/USA) the Moon is posited at 29° Pisces and according to most astrologers considered to be void of course because it makes no applying aspect with another planet before leaving the sign Pisces.

If you look further, you'll notice Jupiter at 0° Sagittarius, building a trine to the Moon. The Moon applies to a trine with Jupiter (within orbs) so that, in our opinion, Hillary's Moon is NOT void of course!

What does a natal void of course Moon indicate?

According to research done by some astrologers (Janis Huntley and A H Morrison among others) subjects born with a void of course Moon can be seemingly devoid of emotions. They can mask their emotions very well.

Also, they do not fit easily into the family and easily feel misunderstood. They rather suffer in silence.

They tend to feel (emotionally) lonely or estranged and are very often firstborn.

Interestingly enough, a void of course Moon seems not to have any affect on one's love life! From the sample of natal charts with a true void of course Moon, we could not find anything conclusive related to the quality or the duration of a marriage or a love relationship.

They too have a love life with its ups and downs, some have long lasting relationships and some are of short duration. That's to say, nothing significantly.

Anyway, our research goes on.
