CRISIS LUNATIONS 2017:
 
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.
 
I first noticed this lunation in the early 1970s when my grandfather was in a nursing home. I saw that there were certain lunations in which the patients, called the Walkers, would pace more than usual. At that time, all I had was the Farmers Almanac to determine what was going on with the Moon. At first, I only used the Full Moon. Many years later, I saw that another astrologer, Richard Nolle, used the Perigee New Moon...and he is absolutely correct. These work the same.
 
CRISIS LUNATIONS 2017:
 
FULL MOON:  November 4, December 3 and January 2 (2018)
 
NEW:  At the June 2017 Crises Lunation, 2 ties on my yard tractor blew – this means I have to use a push mower until July 13 when Sears comes to fix the tires.  I have a service contract so it will not cost anything but cutting this big lawn with a push mower is not fun!
 
OCTOBER 2017 EVENTS:  
 
OCTOBER 5:  Full Moon at 12 Aries 42 at 2:40pm EDT
OCTOBER 19:  New Moon at 26 Libra 35 at 3:12 pm EDT
OCTOBER 22:  Mars enters Libra (see my website)
OCTOBER 26:  Sun-Jupiter conjunct at 3 Scorpio – look where the alignment occurs in your chart to see where the energies are strongest.
NOTE:  Last year the Sun-Jupiter conjunct was on my 2nd House planets and it highlighted a year of financial activity and decisions.  This alignment is strongest when it conjuncts a natal planet and this is actually a very rare event.
 
GOOD DATES/PERIODS for OCTOBER – All times are EDT –
NOT A STRONG PERIOD FOR GOOD DAYS
 
SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 1-2:  The Moon enters the sign of Aquarius where the Moon only makes favorable aspects, ending with a trine to Jupiter at 29 Libra at 7:12 am EDT on the 2nd of September.  This is an excellent date for social events, as well as practical affairs, since Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn.  It is excellent for financial dealings, making decisions based upon logic and objectivity.
            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius from October 27 through early October 29.  There is a series of favorable aspects on October 29 until 12:20pm EDT.  Start as early in the morning as possible to catch all of the favorable aspects with a sextile to Saturn, a parallel to the Sun and ending with a sextile to Uranus at 26 degrees.  This is an excellent time for organizing progressive ideas, working with an authority figure and coming to a successful conclusion.
 
OCTOBER 7:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus where it only makes favorable aspects until 9:30am EDT on the 8th.  This is a good period for financial matters, socializing and relationships in general.  I would emphasize social and cultural activities rather than spending.  Just as the Moon ends with a trine to Venus, Venus is square Saturn so there can be some disappointment or expenses.
 
OCTOBER 13-14:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it makes great aspects on the 14th but it is best utilized in mediating conflicts between others not connected to you.  It favors problem-solving and mediation, using progressive and innovative ideas.  I hesitate with this date as, after the Moon goes VOC, Mercury opposes Uranus.  This could mean that, after all of your hard work, the two individuals may agree to separate.  This, of course, may have been what you advised.
 
OCTOBER 20-21:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio where it makes only favorable aspects.  It culminates with a sextile to Mars at 29 Virgo, portending a successful conclusion to some project.  Matters will run smoothly without a glitch since there are no “hard” aspects.
 
 
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.

  

 

  

  

 


* ARIES (March 19-April 19):  You may feel isolated emotionally.  You may feel that you do not connect with some people around you.  This is an independent sign so isolation is not uncomfortable.  This is a month to change habits that are holding you back.  Do not hold onto problem people in your life.  Change is afoot and travel is a definite possibility.
            The Moon is in the sign of Aries on October 5-6.  During this period, there may be communication difficulties, anger issues and ending with a breaking off.  The Full Moon during the cycle brings an awareness of what is not working.  You do have strong allies and friends who support you but, when initiating now, the outcome will be a breaking off.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  This is a month to leave some stressful situation behind.  A new enterprise will present itself, a new activity or project for which you feel quite enthusiastic.  In a new situation, you will feel that you are being treated royally.
            OCTOBER 7:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus where it only makes favorable aspects until 9:30am EDT on the 8th.  This is a good period for financial matters, socializing and relationships in general.  I would emphasize social and cultural activities rather than spending.  Just as the Moon ends with a trine to Venus, Venus is square Saturn so there can be some disappointment or expenses.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  You must be very decisive this month – seek help if you need this.  October is a good month to rest and take a break from life’s stresses.  By month’s end, you will find yourself working on some project.  It is a good time to finish it so that you can move on.
            The Moon is in the sign Gemini on October 9-10.  Initially, there are good aspects and matters will run smoothly but there are complications underfoot.  By October 10, the Moon forms a Mutable T-Square with Saturn-Mars-Venus and all havoc breaks loose.  There is a brief period on the 10th from 4:30pm to 6:15pm when the Moon sextiles Uranus.  This is a good period for working alone when you can feel free to do things your way.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  Early in the month, you will find yourself working very hard to finish up a project or activity.  Yet, while working very hard, you feel stimulated by the work.  At month’s end, you need to take a break, rest and get away from the stresses in your life.  Cancer can become very anxious about the unknown in the future.
            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on October 11-12.  It is a very frustrating and unstable time to initiate – feeling overwhelmed with errors in judgment can be a factor in the sudden changes.  There is a very brief period at the end when the Moon sextiles Venus at 29 degrees so there can be an amicable agreement to end something.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  This is a month of uncertainty and indecision, something unusual for Leo.  Go with this energy and do not make any important decisions.  There is something unknown at the present that will reveal itself later on.  Just wait on matters to unfold rather than push yourself to make some decision.
            OCTOBER 13-14:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it makes great aspects on the 14th but it is best utilized in mediating conflicts between others not connected to you.  It favors problem-solving and mediation, using progressive and innovative ideas.  I hesitate with this date as, after the Moon goes VOC, Mercury opposes Uranus.  This could mean that, after all of your hard work, the two individuals may agree to separate.  This, of course, may have been what you advised.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  This is a good month for saving and allowing your money to grow – as opposed to turning on QVC and buying everything on your Wish List.  By month’s end, you will feel victorious in some area of your life, possibly in your work life, whereby you receive some praise.  HOWEVER, there are personal issues that need to be addressed, personal behavior that seems to be holding you back in some way.  Because of the Victorious energies this month, you may find a way to overcome these personal limitations.  Virgo negatives are WORRY, SELF-RECRIMINATIONS, OBSESSING and AVOIDANCE (I am a Sun/ASC in Virgo so I know).
            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it starts out with favorable aspects.  Then, the Moon afflicts the Mars-Saturn square, indicating that obstacles, limitations and red tape will prevent success.  The project will end as the Moon crosses Mars in Virgo at 26 degrees, and ending degree.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):  Money will be slow this month so this is a great time for putting away your resources and saving for the future.  This is the main theme for Libra this month.
            The Moon is in the sign of Libra late on the 17th through early on the 19th.  While activities start out running smoothly, crises and complications soon occur.  Problems with one in authority will end the matter.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  “Don’t sweat the small stuff” this month as it will only waste your energies.  This is a month for healings in your personal relationships, helping you to draw closer to the friends in your life.  You feel inspired by a Guardian Angel.  It may be difficult to make decisions right now – go with your intuition.
            OCTOBER 20-21:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio where it makes only favorable aspects.  It culminates with a sextile to Mars at 29 Virgo, portending a successful conclusion to some project.  Matters will run smoothly without a glitch since there are no “hard” aspects.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  If you act impulsively, you can incur errors and forget something important.  There seems to be a theme around the unknown this month, you will find yourself needing to make choices but there is a lack of clarity.  Follow your intuition as the facts are confusing right now.  You may need some “alone time.”
            The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on October 23.  There is a favorable period from 8am to 12:30pm EDT on the 24th.  The Moon will trine Uranus so that progressive thinking can resolve any problems.  This aspect really favors working alone.  Earlier, the Moon hits the Saturn-Neptune square so that misunderstanding and omissions can bring delays and frustrations.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  This is a good month to consult a professional regarding important decisions that must be made.  This is a month for decisiveness.  In your diet and activities, exercise moderation.  Relaxation near water will prove helpful.  Emotionally, it is a time to leave something behind and to take the “moral high road.”  Walk away when something does not work.  A new beginning cycle will commence in 2018.
            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on October 25-26 and, while there is a smooth period at the beginning, disruptions will soon occur, ending with a sudden breaking off.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   This is a good month to consider new projects – something important may be offered.  Yet, this is a month NOT to take on difficult projects.  It is a time to take a break from stress and stressful activities.  Sudden, unexpected news will surprise you by month’s end.
            SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 1-2:  The Moon enters the sign of Aquarius where the Moon only makes favorable aspects, ending with a trine to Jupiter at 29 Libra at 7:12 am EDT on the 2nd of September.  This is an excellent date for social events, as well as practical affairs, since Mars in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn.  It is excellent for financial dealings, making decisions based upon logic and objectivity.
            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius from October 27 through early October 29.  There is a series of favorable aspects on October 29 until 12:20pm EDT.  Start as early in the morning as possible to catch all of the favorable aspects with a sextile to Saturn, a parallel to the Sun and ending with a sextile to Uranus at 26 degrees.  This is an excellent time for organizing progressive ideas, working with an authority figure and coming to a successful conclusion.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  Everything is about to change.  Take care of yourself and your health – treat yourself to a spa visit or a massage.  There will be people around you who are in a difficult situation financially.  See if you can help.
            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on October 3 but it makes a series of very difficult aspects, ending with a square to Saturn.  There is an ending parallel to the Sun, indicating someone in authority may help you bail out but do not count on this.  Saturn always indicates a lot of red tape and delays that prevent success.
            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on October 30-31 and all of the aspects are great, you think everything will turn out well but the ending aspect is a square to Saturn – rules, regulations and red tape will sabotage success.
