2/9/2011 The moon is VOC* from 2:31 am to 6:31 am ET, which makes for sweet dreams or deep meditations (for the early risers).

Once the moon enters Taurus, it’s a good idea to have a plan because the mood does not lend itself to flexibility. Nonetheless, this is a fabulous day for dining and creating a vision with teamwork.

Be aware if you go shopping, the odds of finding something fabulous are strong; you just may not be able to negotiate the price you want for it. Be prepared that you might have to kick in more than you would like because parting from it once you find it is not so easy.

La Belle et la Bête

A Venus/Pluto picture may make this an intensely romantic evening or demand intensity because of a romantic entanglement.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course: Avoid signing contracts, investing in a big purchase or beginning new projects or important conversations. Perfect time for clearing away clutter, finishing up loose ends, meditating or following serendipity. The “mood” of the period will be colored by the sign it is in… in Aries, do some movement- either exercise, walk or drive… because the desire to move forward can be thwarted by the VOC. If you’re going somewhere new make sure you have clear directions and a map because fast movement can miss turns.
