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
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, 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

DATES/PERIODS for APRIL 2020 – All times are EDT
Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it forms favorable aspect from 8am to
9:25am EDT. The aspects are Moon parallel Sun, denoting support from
one in authority, ending with trines to Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn.
Especially the ending aspects portend this to be a favorable time for
practical affairs, financial decisions and taking control of chaotic
situations. Jupiter augers success through lucky breaks and support
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.
APRIL 9-EARLY 10: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and,
from 4am on the 9th to 3:30pm EDT on the 10th, the
Moon makes a long series of favorable aspects. These aspects portend
strength, empowerment, resourcefulness in bringing a matter to a
successful conclusion and finalizing your decisions.
APRIL 12: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, for a
brief period, the Moon only applies to a trine to the Sun from 2am to
7:30am. The Sun is very powerful in Aries and, in achieving success,
a powerful person can grant you favors – if you ask.
APRIL 15 through EARLY 17: The Moon is in the sign of
Aquarius and it makes a series of excellent aspects. There parallels
that the Moon makes are good for permanent practical affairs. The
strongest aspect is Moon trine Venus crossing Mars so this is a good time
for unusual friendships, socially doing wild and crazy things, and
Aquarius also favors activist work.
APRIL 19: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes
favorable aspects from 11am to 7:30pm EDT. The Moon favors
Jupiter-Pluto in Capricorn which is usually most favorable for practical,
financial and project-oriented activities. With the Moon in Pisces,
it is best for creative projects for which you hope for a practical
outcome. Pluto likes to be in control, even working alone.
APRIL 24: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, from 2am to
8:30pm EDT, the Moon makes favorable aspects to Neptune, Pluto and trine
Jupiter. Again, the Pluto-Jupiter combination favors practical
affairs and projects. Jupiter as an ending aspect can portend
success, even when it seems impossible.
