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:

 

NEW MOON:  May 25, June 24 and July 23

 

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.

UPDATE:  Adam is 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. 

 

NEW 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!!!

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):  Several people will be active in your life this month.  One is in authority and he demands justice and fairness. Another is a woman who has been hurt in a relationship.  Be forgiving of her behavior.  A younger person can have ideas about money – do not make any impulsive decisions.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aries on May 22.  This is a questionable date but, if you must use it, commence after 3pm.  During the rest of the day, the Moon will sextile Mars in Gemini, trine Saturn and cross Uranus – Saturn and Uranus are in a trine aspect to each other.  On a good day, when the Moon crosses Uranus, you can cut through red tape, make progressive changes but you must move quickly.  Uranus favors working alone or independently.

    * TAURUS (April 20-May 20):   Financial matters will be the main focus in May.  It is better to allow your resources to grow at this time.  You will make connections with people or groups with considerable resources.  By the 2nd half of May, you are urged not to say anything that will alienate others.  Taurus has a reputation for not listening so you may not be aware of what you have done or why you have offended.  You can offer a gesture of conciliation and all will be forgiven (but maybe not forgotten).

            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus where it only forms favorable aspects from 9am EDT on the 23rd to 3pm EDT on the 24th.  This is an excellent time for communications, writing in general and empowering yourself through psychological insights.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  May commences with friends and family gatherings and activities.  You need to treat yourself well – indulge yourself at the spa for a massage.  Being alone will not be good for you this month. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on May 25-26 where it forms a wide Mutable T-Square with Neptune-Mars-Saturn so there will be frustrating obstacles confronting what is commenced at the time.  There is an ending sextile to Uranus that only favors working independently.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  There may be a family gathering or celebration this month.  You will be considering travel, possibly by water.  There is some indecision around the choices to be made.  Exercise balance in your life.  Be guided by your intuition in making choices – and make the choices that you want for yourself and NOT what others want.

            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on May 1 where it forms many afflictions to the planets in Cardinal signs.  Do not commence on this date as the activity will be fraught with disruptions and complications.         

            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on May 28 where it forms afflicting aspects to the planets in Cardinal signs.  This period has disruptions that will be complicated and costly.  Mars is exactly opposing Saturn and the last aspect is a square to Uranus, ending with unexpected disruptions.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  Money may be slow this month but this is not a problem.  This is a spiritual month – a time for psychic development, working with intuition, accessing your Spirit Guide and deep inner research and investigation.

            The Moon is in the sign of Leo on May 2-3 but it only forms great aspects on the 3rd, after Mercury turns Direct at 12:28pm EDT.  At this time, the Moon forms a Grand Fire Trine, favoring moving forward on decisions and communications, motivational work and embarking upon progressive activities.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  As the month begins, you may hear of some sad news or there can be a disappointment in another.  Family resources will be a priority this month.  There can even be the possibility of an inheritance.  There is a strong female around you who likes animals.  She will prove most helpful in May.

            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on May 4-5.  There is a problem about which you are unaware, allowing matters to proceed for a time.  However, the ending aspect is a square to Saturn so delays will prove costly.  It is best to end the matter and move on.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   This is a good month for connecting with people from your past, especially from your childhood.  Indecision and avoidance will only make any stress seem worse than it really is.  It will be important to give another praise and approval as their ego may have been bruised by others.  This period also favors medical activities, especially alternative medicine and therapies.

            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on May 7 through early 8 but it forms so many afflictions to the many planets in Cardinal signs that it is best not to commence anything now.  You would find yourself trying to fix all of the problems generated by others.  Just say NO

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  Stay away from negative people this month.  There may be a couple who can drag you down.  Stay busy, keep active and stay with people whom you trust and who uplift your spirits.

            The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on May 9-10.  The Moon makes great aspects until the Full Moon at 20 Scorpio.  This period only favors activities that can be done alone as the opposition will bring interference from one in authority or one who has power over the situation.  Work alone!

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  This is an excellent month to get some distance, to take a trip or attend a seminar.  This will allow you to gain a new perspective on your situation.  Step back and look at your life with a new perspective.  There is an significant woman in your life now, possibly one who loves animals.  This person will be important in your life.  This is an excellent time for any medical activities and therapies, especially with a nurturing therapist.

            The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on the 13th where is has good aspects through 10pm EDT.  This is an excellent time for communications.  The Saturn aspect will cause some delays but these are likely to work to your benefit.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  You will receive some sudden, surprising news this month.  You will be urged to make some strong, unwavering decisions.  New, progressive ideas will be presented by month’s end.

            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on May 15 where it afflicts the many planets in Cardinal signs.  Anything important commenced at this time will be fraught with complications, ending with unexpected disruptions.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   This is a month to hold onto your resources.  If requesting money or a raise from another, he is not willing to be generous now.  All will improve by June when it will be a good time to play and party with friends.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius on May 17-18 and it forms great aspects until the very end.  All will appear to run smoothly until someone in authority becomes an obstacle.  It marks an ending cycle – let it go, finish up and move on.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  This is a good month for working on projects, keeping busy and staying on top of your enterprises.  By month’s end, you have an opportunity that is connected to either people from “old money” or family money and resources. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on May 19-20 where there are a series of disruptive aspects.  The last aspect is a square to Saturn, ending the situation or activity due to red tape, rules regulations and impeding structures that create obstacles.  Let it go and move on.
