CRISIS LUNATIONS 2016: 

 

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 2016:

 

NEW MOON:  June 3

 

FULL MOON:  September 16 (Lunar Eclipse), October 16, November 14

 

 

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 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.

 

NEW – The Crises New Moon on March 8 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. 

 

NEW – 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.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for JULY – All times are EDT

 

JULY 1-2:  The Moon will be in the sign of Gemini on July 1 through 7:20 am EDT on the 2nd.   It afflicts Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune in the Mutable signs.  Wait until 1 pm to 11:30pm EDT on the 2nd to commence anything when the Moon only sextiles Uranus in Aries.  The Sun is also approaching a trine to Neptune .  With Moon-Uranus, this is an excellent time for creative problem solving, communicating innovative information and making choices for independence and freedom.

 

JULY 9:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it makes a long series of favorable aspects, ending with a sextile to Venus-Mars (and the Sun sextile Jupiter).  Sextiles favor mental activity so this is an excellent time for social interaction, meeting new people – and it is the date for my annual picnic! 

 

JULY 13-14:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, on these dates, it only makes favorable aspects.  However, at 8:47 pm on the 13th, Mercury changes signs and enters its Fall (Leo) – someone leaves for a choice that is problematic (not a good choice).  If you wish to miss this, use the 14th until 6pm EDT when the Moon trines the Sun and crosses Mars in Scorpio.  The Sun-Mars are in trine aspect so this conjunction can be used in a positive way – for taking a determined initiative, fighting for what is unjust or unfair, or accomplishing against any odds.

 

JULY 15-16:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius but it is best to miss all of the afflicting aspects and commence after 7:30pm EDT on the 16th.  The last aspect is a trine to Uranus at 4:58am EDT on the 17th.  This timing is more useful to those living in other time zones.  The trine to Uranus favors innovative, progressive thinking and action.  You can expect unexpected support from someone who can speed up your activity, cutting through red tape.

 

JULY 25:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries and, after 12pm EDT, the Moon trines Venus-Mercury and then crosses Uranus.  This is an excellent time for progressive relationships, modernizing former procedures and cutting through red tape.  Uranus favors fast solutions to crises situations, often using intuition or inventive problem solving.

 

JULY 30:  The Moon is again in the sign of Gemini and, from 3:30am to 10 am EDT, it favors Venus-Uranus and then parallels the Sun.  This time is better suited for people in other time zones but it supports stimulating relationships and the parallel to the Sun brings support from one in authority.  In the end, Mercury changes from its Fall to its ruling sign of Virgo, indicating a change from a bad situation to a positive one.

 

AUGUST 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and there is a brief period from 12pm to 8:30pm EDT when the Moon trines Mars at 29 Scorpio.  This is an excellent ending cycle for drawing some action to a successful conclusion.

 

AUGUST 2-3:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a New Moon followed by favorable aspects to Venus and Uranus.  The New Moon can be a good time to start something new and it is supported by relationships and innovative activities.

 

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 on that day.
 

 

  

  

 

* ARIES (March 19-April 19):  This is a month for new beginnings – emotional and intellectual.  You will receive a message regarding finances.  Uranus may be active in your chart this month – which is a good indicator for progressive new ideas.

            JULY 25:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries and, after 12pm EDT, the Moon trines Venus-Mercury and then crosses Uranus.  This is an excellent time for progressive relationships, modernizing former procedures and cutting through red tape.  Uranus favors fast solutions to crises situations, often using intuition or inventive problem solving.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  You will find yourself dealing with younger people this month.  In business, such young people do not have a lot of money to spend.  Do not spend time on wishful thinking and impractical dreams.  This is just not the month as you will only be wasting your time.

            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on July 26-27.  You will accomplish more by working alone.  The Moon makes many afflictions to the Sun-Venus-Mercury-Mars so cooperation will be impossible when working with or depending upon others.  After a dispute, matters will abruptly end.  This is an ending cycle for relationships that just do not work.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  By Force of Will, you can accomplish anything that you set your mind upon but do not “sweat the small stuff.”  This will just be wasting your energies.  The astrological influences will be strong for you this month – watch the New and Full Moon dates and when Uranus turns Retrograde.   Watch the Delta Aquarids around July 28-29 – they may offer inspiration.

            JULY 1-2:  The Moon will be in the sign of Gemini on July 1 through 7:20 am EDT on the 2nd.   It afflicts Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune in the Mutable signs.  Wait until 1 pm to 11:30pm EDT on the 2nd to commence anything when the Moon only sextiles Uranus in Aries.  The Sun is also approaching a trine to Neptune .  With Moon-Uranus, this is an excellent time for creative problem solving, communicating innovative information and making choices for independence and freedom.

            JULY 30:  The Moon is again in the sign of Gemini and, from 3:30am to 10 am EDT, it favors Venus-Uranus and then parallels the Sun.  This time is better suited for people in other time zones but it supports stimulating relationships and the parallel to the Sun brings support from one in authority.  In the end, Mercury changes from its Fall to its ruling sign of Virgo, indicating a change from a bad situation to a positive one.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  You are likely to receive an important message this month -- possibly early in the month of July.  Do not make any important decisions this month as you will not have all of the information to make an accurate decision.  Do not involve yourself with petty annoyances as these will waste your energies.

            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on July 4.  The aspects are quite good until the end when the Moon squares Uranus.  There can be unexpected surprises, causing disruptions and instability.  Progressive ideas do not work at this time.

            AUGUST 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and there is a brief period from 12pm to 8:30pm EDT when the Moon trines Mars at 29 Scorpio.  This is an excellent ending cycle for drawing some action to a successful conclusion.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  July portends good wishes, success and a new financial offer.  A wish will be granted but you must make that wish NOW – make the wish!  A financial proposal will be presented.  This is an excellent month for family gatherings and social interactions with close friends and loved ones. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Leo on July 6 and there are many difficult aspects.  Yes, the last aspect is a trine to Uranus that can allow you to cut through the obstacles and red tape but not before poor cooperation and resistance plagues what is initiated at this time.

            AUGUST 2-3:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a New Moon followed by favorable aspects to Venus and Uranus.  The New Moon can be a good time to start something new and it is supported by relationships and innovative activities.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  Neptune may be aspecting your chart this month as you may find yourself day-dreaming and longing for something else, something other than what you have now.  There may be a man in your life who is aloof and detached.  You cannot appeal to him with emotions, only logic – at least, in July.  In your work, you will feel on top of things.  You will be busy and busy doing what you can easily handle.

            JULY 9:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it makes a long series of favorable aspects, ending with a sextile to Venus-Mars (and the Sun sextile Jupiter).  Sextiles favor mental activity so this is an excellent time for social interaction, meeting new people – and it is the date for my annual picnic!

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   This is a month that commences with longing and day-dreaming.  Sharp words may come from a woman – they may be hurtful or they may be true.  This is a month to take a risk and do what you want to do.  You may travel with your pet – something spontaneous and enterprising!

            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on July 11 but it makes a lot of difficult aspects, ending with a square to Venus at 27 degrees.  A social error or hurt feelings can end a relationship – not by argument but rather by an internal decision

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  When completing your tasks this month, you may feel exhausted, albeit, successful.  An important decision must be made this month.  It requires mental acuity and preciseness.  You will be successful and, while busy, you feel on top of things.  You can handle everything well.

            JULY 13-14:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, on these dates, it only makes favorable aspects.  However, at 8:47 pm on the 13th, Mercury changes signs and enters its Fall (Leo) – someone leaves for a choice that is problematic (not a good choice).  If you wish to miss this, use the 14th until 6pm EDT when the Moon trines the Sun and crosses Mars in Scorpio.  The Sun-Mars are in trine aspect so this conjunction can be used in a positive way – for taking a determined initiative, fighting for what is unjust or unfair, or accomplishing against any odds.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  Family gatherings will provide comfort and satisfaction this month.  There is a sense of completion in these relationships.  There could be a “relationship announcement.”  By Force of Will, take charge of your life as all is about to change – your world is changing and so are you.  This is a good thing.

            JULY 15-16:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius but it is best to miss all of the afflicting aspects and commence after 7:30pm EDT on the 16th.  The last aspect is a trine to Uranus at 4:58am EDT on the 17th.  This timing is more useful to those living in other time zones.  The trine to Uranus favors innovative, progressive thinking and action.  You can expect unexpected support from someone who can speed up your activity, cutting through red tape.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):   You may find yourself commencing an activity with great vigor.  However, you will have to deal with people in authority so keep this in mind.  A male will stick to the rules so you must abide by them.  A female will have more flexibility but she must be treated with respect.

            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on July 18-19 where it afflicts Uranus and Pluto, ending with a Full Moon.  This is not a time to commence.  The favorable Mercury transits help you make good decisions but, in the end, there will be a conflict with one in authority.  In late degrees, this is an ending cycle so the matter must be dropped.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   Enjoy the summer, have fun but do not spend a lot of money on travel and vacations in July.  By month’s end, you will have to let go emotionally.  Remember all of the positive in your life – what you have in your life, not what is missing.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius on July 20-21 and it forms oppositions with Venus-Mercury so there will be disagreements and opposing forces, ending with a square to Mars in late degrees.  The disagreements cannot be resolved if you commence at this time.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  July may start out leaving you feeling “out in the cold” and even concerned with finances but all is about to change.  Through Force of Will, you will take charge and find yourself victorious in your endeavors.  All will turn out well in the end.

            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on July 22-23 but there are difficult afflictions to Jupiter-Saturn-Neptune.  However, there is a period from 5pm EDT on the 23rd to 3am EDT in the morning of the 24th.  The only aspect the Moon makes is a trine to Mars in Scorpio and this is an excellent time to take charge and initiate, especially for something for which you feel a great passion.
