Re: New website with online astro calculations and astro database

following is descriptive of "void of course" moon
which says that condition is also "FERAL OR DESART"

Bonatus (13th cent.)
"The 10th way in which the Moon can be afflicted
is when she is void of course, that is, not joined to any planet by body or aspect
or in that condition when they call her Feral or Desart,
that is, in a place where she has not any dignity. [Con. 5]
The Nineteenth Consideration is,
to behold the Moon if she be "void of course",
for then it signifies an impediment to the thing in question:
it will not come to a good end, nor be accomplished;
but the querent shall be forced to desist with shame and loss.
The 62nd is to consider whether the Moon be Void of Course,
for that signifies that the thing enquired after shall scarce ever come to a good end,
or not without much labour, sorrow or trouble
unless the Lord of the Ascendant or significator of the thing
shall be in very good condition, and then it may be hindered,
but not wholly frustrated
- yet tis a good time then for drinking, bathing, feasting etc.,
and to use ointments to take away hair,
especially if she be in Scorpio.
The 64th is to consider, whether the Moon be in Cancer, Taurus, Sagittarius or Pisces;
for it signifies good in the business although she be joined to the infortunes
and not to the fortunes; nor does she being void of course,
prejudice so much in those places as elsewhere
provided she be not combust, for then
they will advantage her little or nothing. "
- The Considerations of Guido Bonatus
