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. 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

DATES/PERIODS for DECEMBER 2019 – All times are ET.
NOVEMBER 27 after 9am ET
through November 28 until 5:30am ET: The Moon is in the sign of
Sagittarius where it is parallel the Sun-Saturn-Pluto and crosses Jupiter
at 29 degrees. This period favors both practical and inspirational
activities. Mercury trines Neptune so intuition is most powerful now.
Rely upon this in making important decisions. This is a lucky period
but it is also an Ending Cycle, a time to draw a matter to a successful
NOVEMBER 28-early 30: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and it
makes all favorable aspects, favoring both practical affairs and
innovative approaches. The conjunction with Saturn denotes delays
but these will work to your benefit. The conjunction with Pluto will
urge you to streamline and cut out the extraneous and non-essentials.
A group can be relevant to your success.
DECEMBER 4: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it is well
aspected after 3pm EST. The Moon favors Saturn-Pluto and Mercury,
ending with a parallel to Neptune. This is a propitious time to make
practical decisions but decisions made using intuition. The Water
sign and Neptune are visceral in projecting for future actions. The
Moon is actually in Pisces starting on December 3rd and there
are almost all favorable aspects. However, as the day of the 4th
begins, the Moon squares the Sun and crosses Neptune. This can
indicate a disappointment with one in authority. If you commence on
the 3rd, be prepared for this to occur. It will not
affect the positive outcome when using intuition in decision-making.
DECEMBER 9: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus from 5am to 8pm on the
9th. The Moon, in an Earth sign, trines the alignment of
Venus-Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn, another Earth sign. This is an
excellent time for practical decisions and activities, especially those
that impact finances and require cooperation in relationships. This
is a good time to talk with your financial adviser, for example.
DECEMBER 16: The Moon is in the sign of Leo but, in order to miss
the difficult aspect of Moon square Mars, do not initiate until the period
from 7am to 5 pm EST. The Moon in a Fire sign trines the Sun in
Sagittarius, another Fire sign. This is an excellent time for travel,
inspirational communications and all consciousness-expanding activities.
DECEMBER 18 (VERY QUESTIONABLE): The Moon is in the sign of Virgo
but, just before it leaves the sign and trines Venus in Capricorn, it
squares the Sun in a strong Fire sign. There can be a conflict with
one in authority. The trine to Venus marks an ending cycle by which
you may have to negotiate a favorable ending.
DECEMBER 20-21: The Moon is in the sign of Libra and it makes a
series of very difficult aspects BUT, from 7pm on the 20th to
6:30am on the 21st, the Moon trines the Sun at 29 Sagittarius.
Libra is a natural Fixer (regardless of whether the other person wants it
fixed or not) so a person in authority can mediate a favorable ending
through inspired thinking/action.
DECEMBER 22: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 9am to
10pm EST, the Moon makes a series of favorable aspects. Practical,
well thought out thinking and action will produce positive results.
The Moon crosses Mars in Scorpio at 10:27pm ET. Considering that
this is part of a series of favorable aspects, rather than a conflict and
poor cooperation, it can mark a time when you assert yourself, and fight
for what you believe in. You win because you have won the fight.
DECEMBER 24: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it only
makes one troublesome aspect, a square to Neptune. There can be some
disappointment due to a misunderstanding or someone not being there when
you expect them. The Ending aspect is a conjunction with Mercury in
Sagittarius so it is an excellent time for travel, education and inspired
communications. There are parallel to Saturn and Pluto so
inspiration is grounded by practical concerns.
DECEMBER 26: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on the 25th
and 26th. Avoid commencing on the 25th.
There is an eclipse so something may “eclipse” the matter. Wait
until the 26th through 4pm ET when the Moon crosses 4 planets
in Capricorn, the Sun crosses Jupiter in Capricorn, ending with a sextile
to Mars and a parallel to Pluto. This is an excellent time for all
practical, organizational and administrative activities. The Moon
does cross Saturn and this will cause delays that work to your benefit.
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.
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..
