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:
 
FULL MOON:  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.

Adam was 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. 
 
EVENT 2017:  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. 
Another crisis occurred as a good friend had a stroke.  This is very upsetting!!!
 
At the May 2017 Crises Lunation, my dad fell outside and could not get up or call for help.  He lay in the rain for 2 hours until a neighbor walking her dog found me and got me.  I told her to call 911 and get an ambulance.  He was dehydrated and in hypothermia – he would have died if not found.  T Mars opposed Saturn near his angles.
 
NEW:  At the June 2017 Crises Lunation, 2 ties on my yard tractor blew – this means I have to use a push mower until July 13 when Sears comes to fix the tires.  I have a service contract so it will not cost anything but cutting this big lawn with a push mower is not fun!
 
AUGUST 2017 EVENTS:   
 
  • AUGUST 3:  Uranus Turns Retrograde (see my website)
  • AUGUST 7:  Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) at 2:10 pm EDT at 15 degrees 25 minutes Aquarius/Leo
  • AUGUST 12:  Mercury turns Retrograde at 11 Virgo
  • AUGUST 21:  Solar Eclipse (across America) at 28 Leo 23 at 2:30 pm EDT  NOTE:  Mars will cross the Eclipse Point in early September!!!
  • AUGUST 25:  Saturn turns Direct at 21 Sagittarius
  • AUGUST 27:  Jupiter in Libra sextiles Saturn in Sagittarius at 21 degrees
 
 
GOOD DATES/PERIODS for AUGUST – All times are EDT  
 
REMEMBER – from August 12 onward, Mercury is Retrograde.  This “qualifies” the positive influence of the Moon.  Keep in mind that it favors reviewing, re-negotiating, re-doing, re-connecting…all of the “re” words.  Mercury Retrograde is a time to gain a new perspective on activities already commenced.  There are many aspects to Ending Planets so that this is a good month to finish up what has been previously commenced.
 
AUGUST 2-3:  The Moon is also in Sagittarius now but what is initiated now will be fraught with disruptions.  There is a period on the 3rd from 4am to 5:30pm EDT when the Moon will parallel Mars and trine Uranus.  This is a good time to take action with some progressive new idea…before Mercury turns Retrograde!
 
AUGUST 8:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, after the eclipse on the 7th, the Moon favors Jupiter-Saturn-Uranus, favoring a progressive, inventive resolution to any problems.   However, you must take action BEFORE 3pm EDT when the Moon goes VOC.
 
AUGUST 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and there is a brief period from 3am to 9:30am when the Moon makes only favorable aspects to the Sun-Uranus.  This is an excellent time for communications (writing, texting, emails).  With Uranus at 28 degrees, it is a favorable time to draw matters to a successful conclusion.
 
AUGUST 20:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it makes all favorable aspects.  However, there is a Solar Eclipse on the 21st.  If you must, use the period on the 20th to start and finish.  If it continues, something will happen to eclipse the matter.  For example, Charles and Camilla were to get married on the day of an eclipse – and then the Pope died so it was postponed!  
 
AUGUST 23:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and there is a brief period from 6am to 4pm EDT when the Moon parallel’s Mercury and sextiles Venus.  This is an excellent time for social events, financial decisions and even shopping.
 
AUGUST 30:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, after 11am EDT, the Moon makes favorable aspects to Jupiter, Venus, Mars and Uranus – forming a Grand Fire Trine.  This is an excellent period for inspirational activities and motivational work – or just feeling motivated for success.
 
 
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):  This is a month for awakening your inner talents and desires, to bring out your inner child.  It is an awakening of truths about yourself.  This is an important month to take time off from the stresses in your life, to rest and relax.  Stress can have you feeling tied up but you can easily free yourself from these.
            The Moon is in Aries on August 12 and, while there are favorable aspects in the afternoon, Mercury turns Retrograde so plans may change or be dropped.  A sudden ending is portended.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  You may feel a longing for something missing in your life but everything is about to change.  The dice have been cast.  With the new changes, exercise caution – poor planning and over-looking something necessary that you are leaving behind may cause problems. 
            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on August 13-14.  During this period, while the Moon does make some favorable aspects, it squares the Sun-Mars conjunction, denoting problems with someone in authority.  Because the Sun is in Leo, this is a very strong person and they can easily block your efforts.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  You will find yourself dealing with 3 strong men this month – one is rigid and unyielding, one works in the system (government etc.) and the other is a true, loyal authority figure.  Choose wisely the one with whom you will work.
            AUGUST 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and there is a brief period from 3am to 9:30pm when the Moon makes only favorable aspects to the Sun-Uranus.  This is an excellent time for communications (writing, texting, emails).  With Uranus at 28 degrees, it is a favorable time to draw matters to a successful conclusion.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  This month is a significant Ending Cycle, especially with Uranus in late degrees this year.  A sudden change is afoot, one that comes as a surprise.  Take care of yourself, treat yourself to a day at the spa but also give comfort to another who is emotionally sad.
            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on August 18 and very early on the 19th.  The Moon will afflict many planets in Cardinal signs so anything initiated now will be fraught with crises – and crises are very stressful for Cancer!

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  Try to be more organized this month since poor planning can cause mishaps.  This is an Awakening Month for many, a time to allow creativity, talents and inner spirituality rise to the surface.  Males of this sign are inclined to hold onto their resources very tightly…and unnecessarily!
            AUGUST 20:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it makes all favorable aspects.  However, there is a Solar Eclipse on the 21st.  If you must, use the period on the 20th to start and finish.  If it continues, something will happen to eclipse the matter.  For example, Charles and Camilla were to get married on the day of an eclipse – and then the Pope died so it was postponed!

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  This seems to be a Neptunian month for Virgo – a time for positive day dreams that are uplifting.  Do NOT act impulsively this month – Mercury is Retrograde so impulse will lead to regret.  Something will be offered but there will be many choices.  Follow your intuition for the best results.
            AUGUST 23:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and there is a brief period from 6am to 4pm EDT when the Moon parallel’s Mercury and sextiles Venus.  This is an excellent time for social events, financial decisions and even shopping.

 * LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   You will finally finish up an arduous task but it is over now.  You may not receive the proper recognition for your efforts.  While there may be sad news, you will feel that a Spirit Guide is with you and much love will be offered by others.
            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on August 24-25 and it makes a lot of favorable aspects.  However, Saturn changes direction and Venus changes signs.  These changes will bring opposition and a sudden ending as the Moon opposes Uranus at 28 degrees.

 

 

                           

 

Index


 

                             

      

 

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  You may experience much longing for something but you know not exactly what you want or need.  However, there are 2 very powerful and successful people around you – a man and a woman – who are benevolent towards you.  You will be supported this month.
            The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on August 25-26 and it makes great aspects until the 26th when it squares Mars.  This indicates that matters initiated now will end with an argument.  It may not deny the matter but it will end in anger.

 

 

 

  

 

Index



 

  

   
 * SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  You may be dealing with an aloof man who is disconnected from his emotions.  If you are a male, this could be you.  Be more aware of how you feel as this will help you make correct choices.  August is a good month to work on spiritual goals – this will provide an important aspiration.  This is a month for an awakening.  Once you have connected with your feelings, long ignored or suppress talents and creativity may emerge.
            AUGUST 30:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, after 11am EDT, the Moon makes favorable aspects to Jupiter, Venus, Mars and Uranus – forming a Grand Fire Trine.  This is an excellent period for inspirational activities and motivational work – or just feeling motivated for success.
            AUGUST 2-3:  The Moon is also in Sagittarius now but what is initiated now will be fraught with disruptions.  There is a period on the 3rd from 4am to 5:30pm EDT when the Moon will parallel Mars and trine Uranus.  This is a good time to take action with some progressive new idea…before Mercury turns Retrograde!


 

Index


     

   

  

 

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  An “idea” for making money will be presented to you this month.  Do not act in haste or make a hasty decision.  Mercury is turning Retrograde this month so give yourself some time to think about the offer.  It is better to treat yourself well – a little indulging is in the stars.
            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on August 4-5 but it makes many afflictions to the planets transiting Cardinal signs, ending by activating the Mars-Uranus square.  What you commence will end suddenly, impulsively and angrily.  This is not a good day as what is initiated will be fraught with Crises.
            The Moon is again in Capricorn on August 31-September 1 and this is NOT a time to initiate anything important.  The ending aspect is a square to Uranus, causing a disruptive ending.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   Do not act in haste this month – Mercury will turn retrograde and you will reconsider your action.  You may be dealing with a very rigid authority figure – this person will not change so do not try to influence the matter.  “Do not cry over spilt milk” this month – do not mourn what you do not have; be grateful for what you DO HAVE.
            AUGUST 8:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, after the eclipse on the 7th, the Moon favors Jupiter-Saturn-Uranus, favoring a progressive, inventive resolution to any problems.   However, you must take action BEFORE 3pm EDT when the Moon goes VOC.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  This is a good month to seek deeper, inner meaning to your life.  Esoteric or spiritual studies are favored.  Acts of charity and paying off debts (even karmic) are emphasized now.  You may be dealing with those in authority and their “rules” may be limiting.
            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on August 9.  While the Moon does make some very favorable aspects, it ends with a square to Saturn.  This will cause delays through problems with an authority figure and “red tape” will severely limit the outcome.  Delays can be so severe that it is not worth the effort.
