Void Moon by Michael Connelly

Am reading a book by mystery writer Michael Connelly called "Void Moon." A gangster follows astrology and warns the lead character Cassie not to do anything during a Void of Course Moon.

Cassie:  'Okay, so you chart the moon. What's a void moon?"

Leo: "it's an astrological situation, okay? See, when the moon is moving from one house to another up there in the constellations, it sometimes is in no house at all. When that happens it means it is "void of course" until it finally gets into a house. It's a void moon. And like I said, on Wednesday night going into Thursday morning there's a void moon for those, what sixteen minutes. It's hanging out there between Cancer and Leo. It's void of course from three twenty-two until three thirty eight. I worked it all out here."

"...it's a bad luck time, Cass. Anything can happen under a void moon. Anything wrong. Just don't make your move during that time.'

Moon void of course happens when Moon doesn't make anymore aspects to another planet before leaving a sign, but I like Connelly's description.

The signs chosen are significant because Connelly's Sun is on the cusp between Cancer and Leo. It's officially in Cancer at 29 degrees. Cancer is ruled by the Moon. His Moon is in the sign opposite in Capricorn so maybe was void of course at the tail end of that sign when he was born. Don't have a birth time so don't know. 

Wonder how the story will progress. Will Leo's prediction turn out to be correct or is he just a superstitious criminal?
