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. 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 JANUARY 2020 – All times are ET.
DECEMBER 30-31-JANUARY 1: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes ALL FAVORABLE aspects while in this sign. The is an excellent time for all creative, recreative, and intuitive activities. NOTE: I have picked this time to travel to Orlando to Harry Potter World to try that new Hagrid ride. I am treating myself to the most expensive hotel there but I am only staying there 3 nights.
JANUARY 6: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus from 4:30 pm (missing the conjunction with Uranus) on January 4 through 7am on January 6. The aspects are basically ALL favorable but one – early on the 6th there is a square to Venus. There can be a disappointment in a relationship but this will not affect the outcome. Between 4:15am and 7am EST on the 6th, the Moon trines Saturn and Pluto. This aspect is favorable for business activities, decisions and planning. The aspects on the 5th are excellent with the Moon trines Mercury-Jupiter-Sun. You can overcome the Venus square so do curb expenses to make this period work.
JANUARY 8: The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on January 8. After 4am EST, the Moon trines Venus in Aquarius. Being in Air signs, relationships of a mental nature are favored. Aquarius likes stimulating ideas, even controversial.
JANUARY 14: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on January 14. The best aspects occur after 1pm EST when the Moon trines Pluto-Saturn-Sun-Mercury, all in the sign of Capricorn. This is an excellent period for all practical affairs, to ground matters into a positive reality.
JANUARY 18: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on January 18 where it makes a series of excellent aspects from 5am to 4pm EST. This is an excellent time for all professional, financial and even creative activities. This is a good time to draw some project to a successful conclusion.
JANUARY 21: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on the 21st where it only makes parallel aspects – to Saturn, Pluto and Mars. Parallels indicate some permanent alliance and these planets impact practical affairs and relationships.
JANUARY 23: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on January 23. This could be a questionable period because the last aspects are a conjunction with Pluto and Saturn. Saturn will cause delays but this can work to your benefit. The Moon ends with a parallel to Mars and Pluto. Parallels bring permanent connections. This period is favorable for business activities but Pluto wants you to simplify, cut out the extraneous and the non-essentials before success can be achieved.
JANUARY 25: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius on January 25 and it is very well aspected. After the New Moon at 4 Aquarius, there are strong aspects between the Moon-Mercury-Mars and this is an excellent time for mental activity, communications and signing agreements. The ending aspects are a parallel to the Sun and Mercury. Parallels indicate a permanent coming together.
JANUARY 27-28: The Moon is again in the sign of Pisces. The best aspects start at 6am EST with a conjunction with Venus and it ends with a parallel with Venus. This is an excellent time for social events and permanent alliances with strong people (Venus is exalted). The Moon favors Saturn-Pluto so, with Venus, this is an excellent time for finances and business affairs.
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.
