*v/c = Void-of-Course
When the Moon is void-of-course, spend your time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement.
It's best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.
Timeframes for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location.
Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on Eastern time zone).
**Mercury retrograde - the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, and traffic can become very mixed-up or delayed during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs.
Also, wherever retrograde Mercury is currently located in your astrology chart is where you may experience a return to the past in some way, such as reconnecting with a person or situation represented by that particular part of your chart.
Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after Mercury retrograde (to resume regular activities):
Mercury in station - immediately before and after going retrograde, the planet appears to be standing still because its movement is so slow. Be still, take time out, don't make any verbal or written commitments.
Mercury in shadow - after going direct, the planet briefly retraces the path it was on before the beginning of the retrograde period. Review the past three months and make plans for the next three months.
Mercury direct - the planet resumes its regular speed. Return to normal daily activities.
