Void Planets and the speed of the Moon

Let's see if I can make clear what I am getting at.

At this time the planets are laid out as:

Sun @ 24 Libra
Moon @ 14 Taurus
Mercury @ 17 Libra
Venus @ 29 Scorpio
Mars @ 13 Capricorn
Jupiter @ 8 Libra
Saturn @ 12 Sagittarius

I want to focus on Mercury. Of the planets, Mercury has passed Jupiter, Mars and Saturn, he can't see Venus or the Moon and the Sun will enter Scorpio before he catches up to it -- in other words, Mercury is void.

However, due to the speed of the Moon, if you were to move the chart into the future the moon would aspect Mercury when it reaches Gemini.

The questions then that I have are:

Is Mercury truly void in this case?
If so, what is the interpretive value of Mercury being void?
Can any planet other than the Moon truly be void in a horary, bearing in mind the quickness of the moon?

I just checked, and it looks like Venus is also void as the moon doesn't connect to her before she leaves Scorpio.

It's going to depend on what you are considering "void." For horary purposes I'd say that Mercury is chasing the Sun but the Sun escapes. Venus I wouldn't consider void because she is within orb applying to Saturn as soon as she changes her sign.

If either were truly void it could signify that Mercury isn't able to do anything. This could indicate a delay, the need for something else to happen (another planet, e.g., making an aspect with another significator.) In that case I would look to the Moon's next aspect to see what will happen next.

As with everything else in horary, if a signifying planet is for some reason voc, it could just be a stunning "no" to the question.
