Attention towards details is on the increase, with a tendency to fault-finding, cleanliness and neatness. It is a good time to undertake routine, painstaking work, and to search for and correct errors. Your body may be more intolerant of low-grade food and harmful substances, and this is a good day to begin a diet.


You can find out in which sign of the Zodiac the Moon was or will be located on any day using the Universal Lunar Calendar.

The Current Moon Void-of-Course Status

Void of Course: Later

4/30/15 5:23 AM

It is believed that anything undertaken when the Moon is void-of-course will bring no result. But there is also another, positive facet of the void-of-course Moon: if something risky or difficult is undertaken, something where other people can create a problem or interrupt you, this time seems to be beneficial, because those who might create a problem can do nothing against you.

To find out when the Moon was void-of-course for any day of any month, use the Universal Lunar Calendar. Here is an article about the void-of-course Moon.
