When the Moon transits through an entire sign, without forming any major aspect, Julius Firmicus Maternus deemed that type of Moon's transit to be a Void Moon throughout the entire transit.

On occasion, a guest will ask for opinions about other Astrologers who use different definitions for the Void of Course Moon. Some astrologers include the minor aspects along side the major aspects, thereby shortening the length of time that the moon is Void of Course.
Some astrologers will ignore the Moon's transiting aspect patterns altogether, and use specific degrees within each sign as being the point in which the Void of Course Moon will begin and end. This may work for them based on their interpretation. What some people consider to be the VoC Moon may be more closely associated with the Anaretic Degree of the sign.
The Anaretic Degree is the last active degree of any sign; aka 29th degree. This is, at most, all that will be said in reference to other astrologers' Void of Course Moon delineations. The Void of Course VoC is similar to a short respite or a reprieve of emotions before the Moon journeys into the next astrological sign.
The Moon rules over our feelings, emotions, nurturing feminine side yes, even men have a nurturing feminine influence , as well as our childhood memories and family matters. Depending on which sign the Moon transits, that sign's energies will be blended into, or at the very least, awash over our natural Moon Sign's tendencies.
This is one reason why our emotions and moods always seem to be in a state of flux, internally. When the Moon begins into a Void of Course period, these areas of our life seem to hit a disconnect. We encounter a short period of emotional confusion, mood fatigue, or even simply feel emotionally and physically rundown.
We may not be able to rely on our usual "gut" decision-making. It is not advisable to initiate new concepts during the VoC Moon. For example, many students complain of not being able to remember what was taught during the Moon's Void of Course transit. Helpful Hint…. Instant mashed potatoes are a good thickener for stews and gravies.
Astrological Moon Calendar
The Farmers Almanac will refer to the March full moon as names adapted from the northern Native American tribes because that is when snd where The Farmers Almanac was published. It hasnt been around since "Christ", it's been around since George Washington. It was published by Benjamin Franklin first as Poor Richard's Almanac and has been a seasonal go-to ever since. Of course Im sure there are many other religions and regions around the world that have the same concept of an almanac and have probably been around for way longer. But "The Farmer's Almanac" is only around years old.
Also the moon has many names : so dont be upset when people refer to it by it's regional name. In many northern areas, this is what it's known by. I've also been told full moons are a great time to deform horses when scheduling.

Seems I should wait until March 16th to deworm my horses this spring. Yes, worming during the full moon is the best time for your horses health. Here is an excellent product to consider. I must say I did get a chuckle about planting of crops, at least here in the North East, there is way to much snow, and we have had such cold weather that the ground is still frozen beneath the 2' of snow on the ground.
Planting days are also good for any "fertile" activity.
