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.
find that you are only affected by one of the Crisis Moon periods,
usually one that falls close to a natal planet.
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
remember one example - a father called about his daughter who had run
away from home about 4 days before the CFM. I told him
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!
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.
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.
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.
MOON: May 25, June 24 and
MOON: November 4, December 3
and January 2 (2018)
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.
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).
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.
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
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!
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.
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!
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
Adam is still looking for money.
At the June 2016 CNM, I traveled to New Jersey to give my
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.
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.
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.
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.
Around the January Crises Full Moon, I caught a burglar in my
dad’s closet. He has been
coming into the house and just taking a little at a time. On
the March 28 Crises New Moon, the prosecuting attorney called to say
that she read the police report and she could not believe what I did to
catch the guy – something that she could not do at 35!
You see, I grabbed his butt, dragged him out of the closet and
refused to let him out of the house until he told me how he got in.
I let him out but chased him up the street, yelling for help
(people only watched and did nothing, including the 12 electrical
workers on the street). I
got his tag number and vehicle description so the police were able to
pick him up right away.
crisis occurred as a good friend had a stroke.
This is very upsetting!!!
