October 10, 2013: I’d agreed to help a friend buy a trench coat for work at a department store. I noted a Void of Course Moon until 11:17, and suggested that we arrive after that time. When I’ve gone shopping with the VOC Moon in the past, I often can’t find what I want – there’s little resonance with the selection. Al H. Morrison also stated that he found we don’t fully use items bought under the VOC Moon. Why waste your time? I’d pick another day.
Although my friend is a skeptic, she wanted my help and agreed to meet at 11:15. We both arrived early – around 11:00. I felt we should just walk around and not try to accomplish anything for the next 15-20 minutes. She disagreed: “What could happen within the next 15 minutes? The same items will be on the shelf, won’t they?” Sounds logical to a non-astrologer. She wouldn’t understand that it was not that simple.
We got to the floor at 11:10 and a saleswoman showed us a limited selection of coats, most with price tags of $400 and up, much more than she’d intended to spend. The coats available also seemed to be somewhat sack-like, not a flattering cut, and the materials were not the greatest. She asked the saleswoman for similar things elsewhere and we were directed to a more sporty area. These prices were lower and there was a much greater selection, but they were more casual. She found one she liked, and I thought it looked good, too. But now the Moon was no longer VOC!
The coat, though, was still not quite what she wanted, so we returned to the other section for a closer look. We first noticed an electronic price reader, and it turned out that the prices were actually quite a bit lower than the tags indicated. There was also a little more of a selection than we’d initially thought. She quickly found a few she liked, tried them on and we agreed on one that looked rather good – exactly what she wanted and within her price range.
So what had happened? The same coats were on the rack. But once the Moon was no longer Void, our ability to connect with them had changed. We discovered new information – lower prices not immediately available – and took more time to review the limited selection. We both overlooked the material, as it was water-repellent, which she wanted. Mission accomplished!
You know the moral of the story – just avoid the VOC Moon when shopping!
