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.

 

 

  

  

  


* ARIES (March 19-April 19): This is a good month for holistic health matters - healing processes that make you feel good. There is another around you who needs some praise and support. This is not something always on your radar unless brought to your attention. There is information or facts about which you are unaware. Do not make decisions when important information is missing. You may have to let go of something this month but find contentment in all that you have.

The Moon is in the sign of Aries on January 2-3 but there are many squaring transits, ending with a square to Pluto and Saturn. Complications and delays will lead to failure. Avoid this day for commencing anything important.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Watch yourself in bad weather situations. Cold weather and snow may have an impact upon you. This is a good month for holistic health therapies, especially with a very nurturing practitioner. You need this now. You may be in the dark about some situation. Do not make decisions when you do not have all of the facts. All is currently not known to you. 

The Moon is in the sign of Taurus from 4:30 pm (missing the conjunction with Uranus) on January 4 though 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 but do curb expenses to make this period work.

   * GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Major changes are about to occur. The Old Order is passing away. This is a good month for celebrations with friends and family – you could even hear the news of a wedding this month. By month’s end, there will be a great Awakening. You will become aware of much that is latent within you.

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.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22): This month is important for taking a break from stressful situations. Relaxation and meditation are important. If you are tired, you may over-react and do something that you later regret. This is a good month for celebrations with family and friends – but let them do the cooking!

The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on January 9-10 but this is NOT a time for initiating anything of importance or you will experience opposition from every direction. There is a Lunar Eclipse at 20 Cancer/Capricorn so something will eclipse the matter. Even Uranus changes direction so that something by be dropped or leave. In Cancer, the Moon will oppose the Capricorn Stellium.

* LEO (July 23-August 22): There is a strong woman with substantial resources around you. She can be helpful. You seem to be bound to a negative situation or attitude and this is affecting another close relationship. Through the power of your own Will, you can manifest what you want. Do this rather than stay with the negative.

The Moon is in the sign of Leo on January 11-12 and there is an alignment of Mercury-Saturn-Pluto at 22 Capricorn, ending with the Moon opposing Venus. The outcome of anything initiated now will prove costly and negatively impact relationships. The Moon will also form 150 aspects, denoting events occurring that are beyond your control. This is not good.

   * VIRGO (August 23-September 22): There will be some sudden, unexpected events – be prepared for the surprise. It is important to be fair and impartial in your dealings with others. A Spirit Guide is with you now. This Guide will bring human assistance into your life. Know they are God-Sent!

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.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22): This is a month to take a risk, to follow your heart and to take a leap of faith in trying something new. Yet, financially, you need to allow your resources to grow – no major expenditures. There may be a connection with “Old Money” or family resources. These people can benefit you in some way. 

The Moon is in the sign of Libra on January 16 but it squares the Stellium in Capricorn, denoting delays, frustration, complications and difficulty with those in authority – choose another day to start anything important.

   * SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Financial matters take priority this month. This is an important month for finishing up your professional projects. There seems to be a powerful woman, a woman who has not worked very hard in her life. This woman can actually be helpful – unless she is an unwanted relative who comes to visit. Do allow your resources to grow. This means no unnecessary spending.

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.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): This is an excellent month to take a risk, to follow your heart, to be guided by intuition and try the unknown. In being spontaneous, intuition will trigger a new idea regarding finances or a financial project. In going to different places and meeting different people, there will be an Awakening whereby you become aware of talents and potentials that lie within you.

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.

  * CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): It will be important to finish up your work and important tasks this month. Later, a new opportunity will present itself, possibly by a resourceful woman. Allow yourself to be free to take advantage of the opportunity.

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.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17): It is essential that you are fair is all of your dealings with others this month. Do not play favorites or have a personal agenda. Fair means being impartial. There is some stress around you and this stress makes you indecisive. Pull your head out of the sand and deal with it. By month’s end, you will be active but what you are doing seems more like play than hard work. 

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.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19): You may find yourself day dreaming and longing some thing else but you do not know what. A financial opportunity will be offered. Ground yourself and focus. There is a strong male around you who seems detached but he can be a powerful supporter.

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.
