CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020:
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.
LUNATIONS 2020: No Eclipses this year on a Crises Lunation
February 10, March 10, April 7, May 6
September 18, October 16, November 14
FEBRUARY 2020 EVENTS:
FEBRUARY 9: Crises Full Moon at 20 Aquarius at 2:33am ET
FEBRUARY 16: Mars enters the sign of Capricorn at 6:33am ET
FEBRUARY 16: MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE at 12 Pisces – see my website for information on Mercury Retrograde
New Moon at 4 Pisces at 10:32 am ET
FEBRUARY 13: The Moon is in the sign of Libra and, for a brief period between 3-4:30pm ET, the Moon favors Mars at 28 Sagittarius. This is a good period to take action and draw some matter to a successful conclusion. This is an ending aspect at 28 degrees.
FEBRUARY 14-early 15: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio until it makes its finally aspect at 5:19pm ET on the 15th. The Moon makes excellent aspects, ending with a sextile to Saturn. This can indicate help from an older or more experienced person. You succeed through careful planning and any delays will work to your benefit. However, before the ending favorable aspect, there is a square to the Sun – you may have to give up something to succeed. There is an opponent (the Sun) but he is not strong. Remember this – the Sun is in a weak sign of Capricorn.
FEBRUARY 16 – Oh No! Mercury turns Retrograde again
FEBRUARY 17: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and Mercury is Retrograde but the Moon favors the Sun after 12pm ET (actually until 4 am ET on the 18th). This period favors drawing some matter to a conclusion, possibly with the support of one in authority.
FEBRUARY 19-20: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from 9am on the 19th to 12pm on the 20th, the Moon makes favorable aspects. It ends with a parallel to Jupiter and, before that, a sextile to Neptune. At 9:16 am on the 20th, the Moon crosses Saturn – earlier it crosses Pluto. Working with Mercury Retrograde, these aspects work favorably if you re-evaluate to simplify any complications and allow the delays to review so that these all work to your benefit. I have observed that the Neptune aspects indicate that a Guardian Angel or your own intuition help to save the day.
FEBRUARY 21: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes great aspects to Uranus, parallel Saturn and sextile Venus (ending with the Sun sextile Uranus). This is an excellent time for new, progressive and inventive thinking. Relationships with innovative thinkers are favored. Venus is cooperative and it is excellent for persuasive communications.
FEBRUARY 24 until 9am on the 25th: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes excellent aspects, following the New Moon in Pisces. The Moon does cross Neptune at 1:26pm ET on the 24th. Review information received at this time since mis-interpretations and errors in judgment can occur but it is good for following your intuition. The favorable aspects from Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn ending with a parallel to Mercury R favor simplifying, weeding out the extraneous and taking your time to re-organize.
FEBRUARY 28 (after 5:30pm) until 5:30pm on the 29th: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and this is an excellent period (but remember to work with the Mercury R guidelines) for practical affairs and progressive thinking. The ending aspects are to Neptune and Jupiter together but this is NOT an ending cycle.
