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.
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, 2020. 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 MAY 2020 – All times are EDT
MAY 11-VERY EARLY 12: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from 6pm EDT on the 11th until 6am on the 12th, the Moon makes a series of aspects to Neptune-Sun-Pluto-Jupiter. In Capricorn, these aspects are best used for financial and business activities. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. Saturn is Retrograde so do not commence a new business venture but work with the situation at hand.
MAY 16-17: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and there is a very brief period from 6pm EDT on the 16th until 3:30am on the 17th when the aspects are excellent. The Moon sextiles Pluto-Sun-Jupiter, favoring any practical endeavors. It is a time for creative activities and, while working alone, groups can benefit you in some way. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic.
MAY 21: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and the best time for initiating is on May 21 through May 22 at 4am EDT. The Moon is aspect Neptune-Pluto-Jupiter favoring all practical, financial and business decisions and changes. Venus is Retrograde so you must work with its energies –
When Venus is retrograde, it provides lessons in evaluating the real worth and value of people and things in our life (Taurus-Libra issues). With existing relationships, this cycle produces experiences wherein it is easier to discern the relative worth and value of these people in your life.
Discrimination is more effective. You become readily aware of any problems, differences or unresolved issues. It is NOT a time, however, to act upon any unfavorable awareness. It is purely a time of evaluation rather than direct action. As little frictions and disagreements crop up, they serve to remind you that the relationship is not perfect. Under the retrograde influence, you must assess the severity of the problem and the "cost-benefit" of the relationship. Only after Venus turns direct should you initiate any alienation if this is deemed necessary.
With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic.
MAY 31: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and there is a brief period until 5am EDT when the Moon trines Pluto and Jupiter. The Moon is aspect Neptune-Pluto-Jupiter favoring all practical, financial and business decisions and changes. Venus is Retrograde so you must work with its energies – see Moon in Taurus. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic.
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.
