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, 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.

JUNE 2020 EVENTS:
MAY 13: Venus turns Retrograde at 21 Gemini (long article at LynnKoiner.com) Do not start any activity that you want to be profitable
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.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for JUNE 2020 – All times are EDT
JUNE 3, after 3am, through 7am on the 4th: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 3am on the 3rd through 7am on the 4th, the Moon makes a series of excellent aspects, ending with a sextile to Jupiter. This ending aspect will help bring success, even when the odds may be against it. This period favors taking action in something that you believe in very strongly and passionately. The Sun does cross Venus Retrograde so it could be a good time to re-connect with someone from your past.
JUNE 7-8: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn from 12pm on the 7th through 2pm on the 8th. The same planetary connections occur as they did on June 3-4 but, in Capricorn, the aspects favor practical matters. Pluto favors simplifying and eliminating the extraneous. Ending with a conjunction to Jupiter, success can be achieved even when the odds may be against you.
JUNE 9 (after 2pm)-10: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, after 2pm EDT on the 9th, the Moon makes favorable aspects to Venus Retrograde, ending with a trine to the Sun. Since Venus is Retrograde, it favors finding bargains, reconnecting with people from your past and for making amends to someone you may have hurt in the past. This is a relationship period in general. The trine to the Sun brings support from someone in authority.
JUNE 18: No, this is not a great day but it can be helpful. The Moon is in the sign of Taurus but Mercury turns Retrograde on this day. Afterwards, the Moon sextiles Mars and trines Pluto and Jupiter Retrograde. If things go awry, the period before 8am EDT can be used to straighten out any disruptions.
JUNE 30-July 1: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and from 12pm EDT on the 30th through 9pm on July 1, the Moon makes a long series of excellent aspects. With Mercury Retrograde and ending with a sextile to Saturn R, this is a better time to re-organize and re-evaluate – going back over issues, papers and decisions – to make improved corrections. Saturn leaves Aquarius and returns to Capricorn. Something will be dropped but it will be an improvement.
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.
