CRISIS LUNATIONS 2019:
Crisis Lunation periods occurs when, at the time that the Moon is New or Full, the Moon is physically very close to the earth. This closeness-lunation parallel will amplify our emotional reactions, bringing matters to a crisis point. This Crisis Moon period usually begins about one week before the New/Full Moon and lasts several days afterward.
I find that you are only affected by one of the Crisis Moon periods, usually one that falls close to a natal planet.
When a crisis arises, my advice is always to "stay calm, relax and make no impulsive decisions for at least a week." The most critical are eclipses. The most potent occurred on April 15, 1995, because it occurred at the time of a Lunar Eclipse. Of course, the event it portended was the Oklahoma City bombing as the Eclipse fell on the ASC/DESC axis over that city. The WTC/Pentagon attack occurred within a wide orb of a Crisis Lunation. The US invaded Iraq on a Crisis Full Moon in March 2003.
I remember one example - a father called about his daughter who had run away from home about 4 days before the CFM. I told him what was occurring and that he should wait for about a week and she would likely return home....and she did. After the effects of the CFM were over, she became rational again. Hormones and a CFM are not a good mix!
During the year, there are generally 4 Crisis New Moons and 4 Crisis Full Moons. There is usually only ONE of these CFMs that hits you -- generally, not all of them ... and you cannot always tell which one it is going to be.
When it hits, you go crazy and your emotions are magnified. But, when the Moon begins to move away from the earth, we calm down. I am a Virgo so a rational explanation is very satisfying for me. If I know that I am feeling this way because of some astrological/astronomical configuration, it makes it seem OK and I feel much better.
Yet, there are times when events occur that are not transient. During a Crises Lunation in 2013, I had an automobile accident and, at another Crises Lunation in 2015, after getting out of jail this man with whom I had the accident tried to sue me for total disability, hoping that I would not show up in New Jersey for the deposition. In January 2019, at the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Crises Lunation, I received a message that my dad had passed away while I was in Switzerland.
NEW: August 2019 had a Crisis New Moon at the beginning and at the end of the month. This is somewhat like a Blue Moon month. The Blue Moon (see a short article on my website) is a Full Moon at the beginning and end of the month. It is my experience that it is like an entire month of Full Moon crises and tension.
August being bracketed by a Crises New Moon is like a month of crises – at least for me. I have a dental crisis, my sweet cat is very ill and he may not make it, and the non-profit that runs my farm has taken all of the joy out of farming for me. They say that the lease will be to protect me when it is only to give them more power and control over me. Yes, I have a good lawyer. The positive – I will be free from worrying about the gardens.
The Crises New Moon occurs on my birthday, August 30. A lunation occurring on or within a day of one’s birthday will trigger a major change within the coming year. This works even if it is not a Crises Lunation.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for SEPTEMBER 2019 – All times are ET.
AUGUST 31: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo when it makes a parallel to the Sun and Venus, ending with a trine to Pluto after 12pm EDT. When the last aspect is a favorable aspect to Pluto, you succeed when you align yourself with a large group. Streamline your project; eliminate non-essentials. Working behind-the-scenes and research can prove helpful.
SEPTEMBER 3: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 7am on the 3rd to 6 am on the 4th EDT, the Moon makes a series of favorable aspects with almost all of the planets, ending with a sextile to Pluto. With strong aspect from Mercury, all mental and decision-making activities are favored. An ending Pluto aspect favors getting rid of anything (or thinking) that is old and worn-out. Success comes through streamlining. Research helps you complete a project.
SEPTEMBER 8: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from 12pm EDT on the 8th until 4:15am on the 9th, the Moon will make a long series of favorable aspects. Starting after 12pm, you will miss the crossing with Saturn (delays and obstacles) and the Sun square Jupiter (unfulfilled promises or dealing with a braggart). The Moon-Mercury-Pluto forms a Earth Trine (between Virgo and Capricorn) and this is an excellent pattern for success in practical matters. While there may be complications, there will be people who assist you. Communications are based upon practical research and observations. Important decisions will be practical and well thought out.
SEPTEMBER 18: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and there is a Grand Earth Trine involving the 3 Earth signs. Saturn and Pluto are the most powerful planets in this configuration so that practical and financial affairs will find success. With the Sun, you will have an advantage over anyone in authority since the Sun is weak and the Moon is powerful in Taurus. More important, the favorable aspects involving Saturn occur AFTER Saturn turns direct. A Direct Saturn is always more powerful in electional work.
SEPTEMBER 24-early 25: The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it forms all favorable aspects after 3:30pm EDT on the 24th until 12pm on the 25th EDT. Mercury and Fire signs are highlighted so this is a great period for all inspired writing, communications and motivational activities. Fire always energizes and inspires. After this event is over, Venus squares Saturn so there may be some disappointing news after the successful conclusion of the prior event.
SEPTEMBER 27 – Questionable: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and from 11am to 11:45pm. I say this is a questionable period because the last aspect is a conjunction with Mars in Virgo. This is not a good sign for Mars but Mars, being exalted in an Earth sign of Capricorn, has strength in all Earth signs. From 12 pm (putting the Moon square Jupiter long behind) to 11:45pm EDT, the Moon trines Pluto and then crosses Mars. Mars always means that you have to fight for what you want. Something gets “cut” but this may be to your benefit. EXAMPLE: Years ago, I wanted to buy a Toshiba copier. I went into the store when the last aspect was to Mars. The price had gone up $100 but I knew with Mars that the salesman would cut the price. He overheard me telling another customer (I intentionally did this) that it used to cost $1000 and I was NOT going to pay $1100 – he heard this and cut the price!
NOTE TO READER: These dates are based upon electional techniques. All of the Moon sign dates apply to everyone. Do not simply read your own Moon sign – read all of the signs for what I say about the specific dates. The Moon sign information will NOT describe the day, only the outcome if you initiate something important on that day.
