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:

 

NEW MOON:  March 28, April 26, May 25, June 24 and July 23

 

FULL MOON:  January 12, November 4, December 3 and January 2 (2018)

 

PERSONAL EXPERIENCES:  Full Moon: The Full Moon of July 3 2012 was 2 days away from perigee.  It seemed like the worst Crises Lunation to me with the horrible storm, loss of power and the loss of my beautiful Yard Tractor when a huge tree fell on it, crushing all but the headlights.

 

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse:  On April 25 2013, the Perigee Moon occurred at the time of the lunar eclipse.  This has been a terrible time with fires, explosions and political crises.  Around May 25, another eclipse, bridges collapsed and earthquakes brought destruction.  Personally, I have had health issues around these eclipses and mechanical problems – a DVD got stuck in my TV with a DVD combo and then a CD got stuck in my car CD player (at least, the car is still on warranty).

 

Full Moon:  I have been experiencing endocrine-related health issues since last November (2012).  After finding a wonderful doctor and feeling much improved, the July 20 2013 Full Moon brought a big-time relapse for reasons I do not understand.  It could have been stress-related - the impending county fair, a friend visiting, and NCGR conference – but I improved by August 13.

 

Full Moon:  The Full Moon Crises Lunation of August 21 2013 was the one that hit me with a vengeance.  I am a very cautious driver and, on the 20th, despite wonderful transits and progressions in my chart for this period, I had a very bad accident pulling out of the visitors’ center in Wildwood New Jersey .  I was so cautious pulling out because the road visibility was poor.  A truck filled with young people, who were obviously speeding, hit my car.  If the good aspects helped, the worse did not happen.  We were fine, no damage to the truck (the driver claimed I did all kinds of damage but I clued the insurance company of what he was trying to pull and I had photos to prove my point), and the kind folks at the visitors’ center came out and helped tie the bumper back onto the car so that I could continue my trip.  Everyone was so kind there.  I learned on this trip that any visitors’ center can arrange discount rooms. 

            For the CFM of June 2014, my small female cat developed sinusitis.  At first, the vet did not diagnose it properly so the medication I was giving her did not work.  Finally, I just took the cat to stay over with the vet until he could observe her properly.  This was a very stressful time when the cat was in crisis!

 

The October 8 2014 Crisis Lunation hit people closest to me – my partner had a second eye stroke from high blood pressure.  We are hoping that his sight will return in early 2015 but he can no longer work – this is a big crisis! 

            One of my best friends hired a group to work on her house – they did nothing correctly and it was a disaster!  And, because they did not speak much English, she could not tell them what she wanted. 

 

The Crises New Moon of February 18 2015 was horrible and long lasting.  What I thought was a sinus infection turned out to be a tooth issue and did not resolve easily or quickly.  Enough said about this! 

 

Just before the Crises Full Moon of August 29, 2015, I was served papers stating that I was being sued.  I was traumatized.  As I read the papers, the lawsuit was regarding a minor accident I had at the Crises Full Moon on August 21 2013 (see above).  The only damage was to my car but the lawsuit states that he has suffered permanent disability and he will never be able to work again.  A good friend, with a Stellium in Virgo in the 12th (she should have been a detective), researched Adam V. Walker on the internet.  The paper said that he “resides in Delmont NJ .”  Delmont is the location of the state prison.  He has been in jail for a year, filed the papers while in jail and now he needs money when he was up for parole on August 18 (papers filed on August 12).  Yes, he will probably never be able to work with his criminal record.  I was sent a list of New Jersey lawyers, thinking I would try to buy him off as opposed to calling my insurance company.  It is being handled by their fraud department and, if they simply call the jail warden, he may be heading back to jail to finish his sentence.

UPDATE:  Adam is still looking for money.  At the June 2016 CNM, I traveled to New Jersey to give my deposition.

I thought that the August 29 Crises Lunation was bad but October 27 2015 is as bad as it can get.  If I listed all of the crises and things that have gone wrong, you would be crying too.  This set off my trip in which I had no flexibility for any mishap.  On future trips, I will remember that NOTHING BAD has ever happened to me.   Guardian Angels are always with me – just go with the flow.

 

The Crises New Moon on March 8 2016 was a solar eclipse.  During this time, my oldest cat and only female became very ill.  She had lost so much weight and, despite heroic efforts by my Vet, she passed away in my arms in the bed covered with an electric blanket. 

            Even worse, there was the crises in Brussels and other parts of the world with terrorists killing many people. 

 

The Crises Lunation of August 2013 keeps coming back like a bad penny.  Around the April 2016 CNM, not only did I have car problems due to a bad recall repair, I received a notice to appear in New Jersey again for a deposition on the last CNM in June.  See the Adam Walker link above. 

 

The September 16 Lunar Eclipse was a CFM and the crises really snuck up on me!  It started out with a lot of things had to be done at the last minute – a meeting with our County Council to give my testimony on the Urban Farm Tax Credit Bill (see my Facebook page) so I had to send emails to customers and local civic groups to write to the Council members.  My late aunt’s apartment had to be cleaned out and the elevator to the 4th floor did not work so I had to run down to the 1st floor and take the elevator to the 4th to have it open.  There was a laundry crisis with my dad, there was a PayPal misunderstanding and, the worst, I hid my wallet in a safe place and it took 4 days before I found it.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for JANUARY – All times are ET

 

NOTE:  Mercury is Retrograde through January 8 so take this into consideration when using the good dates in early January.

JANUARY 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius where it is extremely well aspected.  It is best to wait until the Mars-Neptune aspect is over and commence from 4am EST through the rest of the day.  Actually, the Moon crosses Venus in Aquarius at 3am EST on January 2 but this is only relevant for people living in Europe .  This is an excellent time for social events, relationships and working with unconventional people.  The last aspect is a conjunction – a coming together – with Venus at 28 degrees so this is a culminating aspect.  Late degrees portend drawing to a successful conclusion.  This could be a marriage or a business deal.

 

JANUARY 6:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries and it only has good aspects after 1:30am EST.  The last aspect is a trine to Mercury Retrograde so this is a better preparation time, a time to go over information, writing and ideas, to re-evaluate for a future action.  It is a good time to get another to re-consider their ideas or opinions. 

 

JANUARY 7:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and it makes all great aspects, ending with a trine to the Sun, portending support from one in authority.  However, Mercury will turn Direct 7 hours after the trine to the Sun.  This may be better if you hold back until Mercury turns Direct.  With Pluto, this period favors dealing with powerful people or doing the work yourself.

 

JANUARY 13-very early 14:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it forms all favorable aspects until the trine to Saturn at 10am EST on the 14th.  Fire signs favor motivational actions and encouraging support from others.  Saturn in Sagittarius wants high standards, codes and ethics in the endeavor.  Being honest and forthright is important.

 

JANUARY 16:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it trines the Sun at 27 degrees after 6pm EST.  There are many difficult aspects preceding this period so there may have been problems early on.  During the Moon trine Sun period, it favors drawing some matter to a successful conclusion and finding support from one in authority.

 

JANUARY 19-21:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and it is well aspected from 6pm EST on the 19th to 8:15pm on the 21st.  During this period, Venus is well aspected to Pluto and the Moon is well aspected to Pluto-Venus-Mars.  This is an excellent relationship period and it also favors financial activities. 

 

JANUARY 26:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and there is a period after 2:30 pm EST when the Moon sextiles Venus-Mars.  Mars is at 29 degrees of Pisces so it favors drawing some matter to a successful conclusion.  This period is good for relationships, psychic and intuitive activities and business endeavors.

 

JANUARY 28:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, after 1am EST, the Moon only makes favorable aspects and Mars has entered a positive sign, Aries.  Preceding this period, something may be dropped for something much better and this sets the tone for the favorable aspects to Uranus-Jupiter-Saturn.  This is an excellent period for progressive business activities – all progressive and educational activities in general.

 

JANUARY 30-very early 31:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes great aspects on the 30th but it squares Saturn at 7:11am EST on the 31st.  Rules, regulations, red tape and other obstacles will slow down your progress, if you initiate before this time.  It is better to initiate between 8am and 12pm EST when the only aspect is a conjunction with Venus at 27 degrees in Pisces.  This favors relationships, cooperation and successful agreements, as well as creative endeavors. 

 

 
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):  Aries is a crises driven sign but January is a month to take a rest from life’s stresses.  There may be a disappointment but be willing to show your feelings.  Being rigid is not good for the “heart.” 

            JANUARY 6:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries and it only has good aspects after 1:30am EST.  The last aspect is a trine to Mercury Retrograde so this is a better preparation time, a time to go over information, writing and ideas, to re-evaluate for a future action.  It is a good time to get another to re-consider their ideas or opinions.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  Treat yourself well this month as you will be victorious in your endeavors in January, despite Mercury being Retrograde.  Now is a time to finish up projects but it is also a time to prepare your notes for a future presentation.

            JANUARY 7:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and it makes all great aspects, ending with a trine to the Sun, portending support from one in authority.  However, Mercury will turn Direct 7 hours after the trine to the Sun.  This may be better is you hold back until Mercury turns Direct.  With Pluto, this period favors dealing with powerful people or doing the work yourself.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  This is a good month, after Mercury turns Direct, to make really good financial decisions.  This is a month to take a risk, a leap of faith and go it alone to have an adventure.  Staying still, not moving, will make you feel trapped by the “unknown.”  Get moving!

            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on January 9-10 but it makes so many afflictions that anything initiated would be fraught with challenges to your flexibility.  In the end, you would mutually agree to separate and end the connection.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  There may be someone who is detached and aloof in your life.  It is time to leave this relationship behind.  This is a month to empower yourself – mentally and spiritually.  Any studies that enhance your intuition are favored this month.

            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on January 11 and it is fraught with afflictions, especially to Jupiter portending excesses in cost and expectations, and ending with a Full Moon – a separation and a conflict with one in authority.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  This month portends a wake-up call to new opportunities and hidden talents.  Most important, it is a good time to take a risk, a leap of faith and challenged yourself to embrace the unknown.  By month’s end, you may connect with people from your past, something that will prove emotionally fulfilling.

            JANUARY 13-very early 14:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it forms all favorable aspects until the trine to Saturn at 10am EST on the 14th.  Fire signs favor motivational actions and encouraging support from others.  Saturn in Sagittarius wants high standards, codes and ethics in the endeavor.  Being honest and forthright is important.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  An opportunity may present itself and it is important to respond to the offer.  Sometimes little blessings are overlooked.  Do not let this one pass you by.  A trip to a warmer climate will prove fortunate.  If you cannot travel, playful activities, regardless of your age, will make you feel young.  Seeking medical advice is propitious now and this includes medical studies.

            JANUARY 16:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it trines the Sun at 27 degrees after 6pm EST.  There are many difficult aspects preceding this period so there may have been problems early on.  During the Moon trine Sun period, it favors drawing some matter to a successful conclusion and finding support from one in authority.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   You cannot solve everyone’s problems.  This will only bring stress into your life, stressful problems that you cannot fix.  Learn to just listen and not try to DO something about the situation unless it directly affects you personally.  The worst is over this month and a new beginning is about to commence.

            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on January 18 but there are afflictions to planets in the Cardinal signs – lots of crises occur around you.  Organize, maintain high standards and be direct and truthful and all will turn out.  Mars squares Saturn during this time – a conflict between illusion and reality.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):    You will receive an important message this month.  It is not as bad as you think.  This is a good month for Scorpio as one in authority has your back.

            JANUARY 19-21:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and well aspected from 6pm EST on the 19th to 8:15pm on the 21st.  During this period, Venus is well aspected to Pluto and the Moon is well aspected to Pluto-Venus-Mars.  This is an excellent relationship period and it also favors financial activities

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  You will be busy this month but it is enjoyable rather than drudgery.  Do not say anything that you will later regret – words cannot be taken back once spoken.  Praise and appreciation should be shown to another who is feeling insecure, possibly a Leo.

            The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on January 22 through early 24.  While matters may seem to start out well, the Moon ends with afflictions to the Mars-Saturn square.  There will be insurmountable obstacles and conflicts that deny success if you commence at this time.

 


 

Index


     

   

  

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  This month you will need to make firm, forceful decisions.  New ideas will be presented but wait until Mercury turns Direct to activate them.  You will receive an important message my month’s end.

            JANUARY 26:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and there is a period after 2:30 pm EST when the Moon sextile Venus-Mars.  Mars is at 29 degrees of Pisces so it favors drawing some matter to a successful conclusion.  This period is good for relationships, psychic and intuitive activities and business endeavors.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   You may experience an emotionally fulfilling connection with someone from the past.  For Aquarians, this often occurs on Social Media.  A strong, resourceful woman can be very beneficial to you this month.  There will be an awakening by month’s end – long buried emotions and unrecognized talents.  This can be a spiritual period as well, after Mercury turns Direct.

            JANUARY 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius where it is extremely well aspected.  It is best to wait until the Mars-Neptune aspect is over and commence from 4am EST through the rest of the day.  Actually, the Moon crosses Venus in Aquarius at 3am EST on January 2 but this is only relevant for people living in Europe .  This is an excellent time for social events, relationships and working with unconventional people.  The last aspect is a conjunction – a coming together – with Venus at 28 degrees so this is a culminating aspect.  Late degrees portend drawing to a successful conclusion.  This could be a marriage or a business deal.

            JANUARY 28:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, after 1am EST, the Moon only makes favorable aspects and Mars has entered a positive sign, Aries.  Preceding this period, something may be dropped for something much better and this sets the tone for the favorable aspects to Uranus-Jupiter-Saturn.  This is an excellent period for progressive business activities – all progressive and educational activities in general.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  Everything is about to change in your life – the dice have been cast and the change is already underway.  This change will require that you move to the next level of maturity.  The proper handling of money will be an important lesson now.  Avoid excesses through immaturity but do not shift to the opposite extreme of stinginess.

The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on January 2-3.  Matters may start out well because you possibly do not see the problems ahead.  Two people will leave for something better.  Regulations, restrictions and red tape will tie you up in the end and you will make the decision to drop the matter altogether. 

            JANUARY 30-very early 31:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes great aspects on the 30th but it squares Saturn at 7:11am EST on the 31st.  Rules, regulations, red tape and other obstacles will slow down your progress, if you initiate before this time.  It is better to initiate between 8am and 12pm EST when the only aspect is a conjunction with Venus at 27 degrees in Pisces.  This favors relationships, cooperation and successful agreements, as well as creative endeavors.
