CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020: 
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 was very ill, and the non-profit that runs my farm has taken all of the joy out of farming for 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, 2020.  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 APRIL 2020 – All times are EDT 

APRIL 6:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it forms favorable aspect from 8am to 9:25am EDT.  The aspects are Moon parallel Sun, denoting support from one in authority, ending with trines to Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn.  Especially the ending aspects portend this to be a favorable time for practical affairs, financial decisions and taking control of chaotic situations.  Jupiter augers success through lucky breaks and support from others.
APRIL 9-EARLY 10:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 4am on the 9th to 3:30pm EDT on the 10th, the Moon makes a long series of favorable aspects.  These aspects portend strength, empowerment, resourcefulness in bringing a matter to a successful conclusion and finalizing your decisions.
APRIL 12:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, for a brief period, the Moon only applies to a trine to the Sun from 2am to 7:30am.  The Sun is very powerful in Aries and, in achieving success, a powerful person can grant you favors – if you ask. 
APRIL 15 through EARLY 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes a series of excellent aspects.  There parallels that the Moon makes are good for permanent practical affairs.  The strongest aspect is Moon trine Venus crossing Mars so this is a good time for unusual friendships, socially doing wild and crazy things, and Aquarius also favors activist work.
APRIL 19:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes favorable aspects from 11am to 7:30pm EDT.  The Moon favors Jupiter-Pluto in Capricorn which is usually most favorable for practical, financial and project-oriented activities.  With the Moon in Pisces, it is best for creative projects for which you hope for a practical outcome.  Pluto likes to be in control, even working alone.
APRIL 24:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, from 2am to 8:30pm EDT, the Moon makes favorable aspects to Neptune, Pluto and trine Jupiter.  Again, the Pluto-Jupiter combination favors practical affairs and projects.  Jupiter as an ending aspect can portend success, even when it seems impossible.
 

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):   There may be messages or news about a financial matter.  You will work hard to finish up important tasks but, like Pisces, you will feel yourself victorious by month’s end.

     The Moons is in the sign of Aries on April 20-21.  The Moon’s aspects start out well but ending with aspects to Mercury-Pluto-Jupiter.  Crises can occur through poor information and decisions, complications, ending with problems through exaggerations, unethical actions and unnecessary expenses.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  Despite what is occurring around the world, you will feel very much on top of things.  Yet, you need to take time to day dream, to organize plans in your imagination and to tune out.  By month’s end, strong decisions will have to be made.  Cut out what you no longer need.  Decisiveness is essential.

APRIL 24:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, from 2am to 8:30pm EDT, the Moon makes favorable aspects to Neptune, Pluto and trine Jupiter.  Again, the Pluto-Jupiter combination favors practical affairs and projects.  Jupiter as an ending aspect can portend success, even when it seems impossible.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):   There is a tendency during these times to day dream, to think about other possibilities and this is a good escape.  If you make changes, you may exhibit poor planning and leave something important behind.  By month’s end, pay off debt and be generous to those to are experiencing a very difficult time.

              The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on April 25-26.  I did not put April 26 in the Good Dates list because, while it makes good aspects for relationships, there is a square to Neptune before the Moon sextiles Mercury, as an ending aspect.  This indicates some missing information, something left out but, in the end, you make a correct decision.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):   Poor planning can plague any change or handling of angry impulses.  Use this as a Rest Period in your life and these feelings will subside.  By month’s end, there will be cause for celebration.

              The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on April 28-early 29.  While this period starts out well, a bad decision will lead to an opposition and breaking off that can prove costly.  This is not a time for financial decisions.

              The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on April 1 and early April 2.  The Moon opposes Jupiter and Pluto so this is not a good time for financial matters.  It does end with a sextile to Venus in Taurus so all will be resolved in the end, especially financial matters.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  Despite the health crisis, you feel healthy and enthusiastic.  Any medical issues will be well supported, even studies of medical subjects.  This is a time to keep expenses down yet to help others less fortunate than yourself.

            The Moon is in the sign of Leo on April 3.  While the transit through Leo ends with a sextile to the Sun very strong in Aries, there are many disruptions when initiating at this time.  Whatever happens, one in authority will help you out.

            The Moon returns to Leo on April 30 and there are many, many afflictions, ending with an opposition to Mars.  Anything initiated at this time will be fraught with crises and disruptions, and ending with an angry separation.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):   In keeping your health in balance, mostly alkaline reacting foods, you will be well.  However, there will be friends who are not as lucky.  By month’s end, there seems to be an opportunity for a celebration, even on ZOOM/Internet.

APRIL 6:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it forms favorable aspect from 8am to 9:25am EDT.  The aspects are Moon parallel Sun, denoting support from one in authority, ending with trines to Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn.  Especially the ending aspects portend this to be a favorable time for practical affairs, financial decisions and taking control of chaotic situations.  Jupiter augers success through lucky breaks and support from others.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):  Escapism through day dreaming, fantasizing and just longing for changes are indicated.  You are in the process of transformation and your dreams will change you.  By month’s end, the problems will reach their peak or ending point and the Sun will soon shine

              The Moon is in the sign of Libra on April 7 and, while matters start out smoothly, there are changes – and a Crises Full Moon – that prove highly disruptive.  Do not initiate anything important at this time.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  Wait on financial matters now.  Do not do anything impulsive.  A strong woman will provide good financial and business advice.  This month your Wish can come true – MAKE THAT WISH NOW!

APRIL 9-EARLY 10:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 4am on the 9th to 3:30pm EDT on the 10th, the Moon makes a long series of favorable aspects.  These aspects portend strength, empowerment, resourcefulness in bringing a matter to a successful conclusion and finalizing your decisions.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):   You feel befuddled by what is occurring at this time.  It is a time to back away from life as it used to be and gain a new perspective.  You can finish up your projects.  Do this in April.

  APRIL 12:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, for a brief period, the Moon only applies to a trine to the Sun from 2am to 7:30am.  The Sun is very powerful in Aries and, in achieving success, a powerful person can grant you favors – if you ask.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  Sudden changes are taking place at this time for Capricorns but this could be the COVID19 crisis.  You often feel chained to negative forces but, for you, you will find passage from a difficult situation by month’s end.

            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on April 13-14 and it afflicts the many planets in Cardinal signs.  If you initiate during this period, the activity will be fraught with complications, difficulty with someone in authority and excessive costs.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):  There is a powerful, guarded man around you.  Back off from this individual.  Despite the quarantine, this is a good time for family and home activities.  By month’s end, there is an important authority figure who can help you.  He is in a position to do so.

APRIL 15 through EARLY 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes a series of excellent aspects.  There parallels that the Moon makes are good for permanent practical affairs.  The strongest aspect is Moon trine Venus crossing Mars so this is a good time for unusual friendships, socially doing wild and crazy things, and Aquarius also favors activist work.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  Strong decisions will have to be made this month.  This is a good time to take care of yourself, your family and everyone’s health.  You may even find yourself in a caretaker role.  By month’s end, you will feel yourself victorious.

       APRIL 19:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes favorable aspects from 11am to 7:30pm EDT.  The Moon favors Jupiter-Pluto in Capricorn which is usually most favorable for practical, financial and project-oriented activities.  With the Moon in Pisces, it is best for creative projects for which you hope for a practical outcome.  Pluto likes to be in control, even working alone.
