MAY 11: New Moon at 21 Taurus at 3pm ET
MAY 13-14: Jupiter enters Pisces (in early May, Jupiter is at the End Of Your Rope degree emotionally)
MAY 23: Saturn turns Retrograde at 13 Aquarius
MAY 26: Lunar Eclipse Crises Full Moon at 5 Sagittarius/Gemini at 7:14am ET
MAY 29-30: Mercury turns Retrograde at 24 Gemini (Oh No! It is right on my 10th House Mars)

May 1-3 (Mercury-Mars-Sun), May 5, May 20-21 (Mars-Chiron-Eris) – watch for the 2 hours when Orion’s Belt is overhead.

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 is very ill and he may not make it, and the non-profit that runs my farm has taken all of the joy out of farming for me. They say that the lease will be to protect me when it is only to give them more power and control over me. Yes, I have a good lawyer. The positive – I will be free from worrying about the gardens. 

The Crises New Moon occurred on my birthday, August 30, 2019. 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. The major change was in my home – major renovations and Bill moved in with me. 

At the March 2020 CFM, I had a terrible panic attack at night – I thought I was going to have a heart attack. In August and September, with the CNMs, there were so many plumbing problems. My pipes are mostly from the 1930s so they are in bad shape. For what it is worth, the Transiting NN was crossing my natal Mars in Gemini. I got hit a lot because, during the November CNM, my old desktop started to grind and make a lot of noise. Just as I was about to take it to Ellicott City to a repair shop, my lawyer came by and told me about a mutual friend a couple of blocks away and he fixed it for $20!!! It just needed cleaning and oiling.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for MAY 2021 – All times are ET -- I allow wider orbs for the Crises Lunations because they work. I have been observing since 1972, then using the Farmer’s Almanac.

CRISES FULL MOON: May 26 (exact – lunar eclipse), June 24
CRISES NEW MOON: October 6, November 4, December 4 (exact) and January 2 2022

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): Emotional support will be sincerely offered this month. You may be confronted with many choices and decisions to make this month. Each choice seems favorable but the Stars suggest a choice that enhances your spiritual growth. There is a woman with cats around you who can be supportive as well. 
MAY 9: The Moon is in the sign of Aries and it makes many difficult aspects until a brief period on the 9th from 2-6pm ET. After some complications, success can come due to support from encouraging friends. Past problems are forgiven and expectations are finally met.








* TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This will be a very busy month for you. Work will be more like play. Taurus is not usually an energetic sign but this month you will feel energized and enthusiastic about what you are doing. By month’s end, you may be confronted with a couple who are going through very difficult times with regard to money and health – can you help in any way?
The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on May 10-11. There are many good aspects but, on the 10th, the Moon makes difficult aspects to the Saturn-Uranus square, causing unexpected delays and obstacles. The last aspect is a square to Jupiter. This aspect impedes success through unrealistic expectations and unfulfilled promises. Do not waste your time on people who are a waste of time. 










*GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will feel inspired by a new idea that strikes you suddenly. Pause before taking action since there can be poor planning and something can be left out, overlooked or left behind. Your best course of action is to follow the Stars and your personal astrological aspects, the Lunar Eclipse and Mercury turning Retrograde (avoid these).
The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on May 12-13 and, while the Moon makes great aspects, Jupiter changes signs so someone will leave for something much better. The last aspect is a square to Neptune in Pisces. The Truth will be hard to find as this time. Uncertainty, deception and misconceptions can plague the matter. DO NOT BE A RESCUER! The person will just take advantage of you. 












*CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may find yourself working very hard on a project this month. You feel on top of things and in control. You must exercise moderation and temperance – do not over-do or over-work. When you finish, you will need a nice vacation. Headaches come from elevated Cortisol levels – Holy Basil and Lemon Balm together are helpful. 
The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on May 15-16 and the Moon makes excellent aspects until the very end when there is an opposition to Pluto. At the last minute, some important person or information is missing. Complications ensue. Something is incomplete and this will cause problems. 










*LEO (July 23-August 22): This is a good month for a medical check up or working with a holistic practitioner. It can also favor medical studies. There may be a small party or gathering with friends this month – do not drink too much! This is a month to observe and follow the astrological patterns in your chart -- your personal astrological aspects, the Lunar Eclipse and Mercury turning Retrograde (avoid these).
The Moon is in the sign of Leo with several 150 degree aspects – matters that are beyond your control. The Moon makes a hard aspect to Saturn-Uranus causing unexpected frustrations and delays. The Moon ends with a square to the Sun in Taurus at 29 degrees. This is definitely an Ending Cycle due to poor cooperation and a disagreement with one in authority.  









*VIRGO (August 23-September 22): Take advantage of the Spring weather and sunshine to get out and have fun. Everything is about to change in your life – the dice have been thrown and change is afoot. Practice meditation or work with dreams as a new idea or inspiration will present itself this month.
The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on May 20 until 3:45pm ET. There are many difficult aspects causing problems with finances, relationships with disagreements and even deception. At the very end, the Moon trines Pluto. Assistance will come but it is best to work alone as other people will just cause problems. 














*LIBRA (September 23-October 22): This is a month to practice moderation and balance. You can be fair to others but, first, you must be fair to yourself. When you do this, you will find yourself moving away from a stressful situation or relationship. Pay off debts and maybe offer help to others less fortunate than yourself. 
The Moon is in Libra on May 22-23. There is an element of deception when initiating at this time. Mercury squares Neptune -- follow your intuition and do not be lead astray. Saturn turns Retrograde so something will be dropped. The last aspect is a square to Pluto so that complications and red tape will cause big problems.  














*SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Some important facts are unknown to you this month. DO NOT make important decisions until you have all of the facts – until you know the truth! This is not a good spending month for you. Hold onto what you have but do not be stingy. A successful woman in business can benefit you in some way.
MAY 25: CAUTION DUE TO UPCOMING LUNAR ECLIPSE (but eclipses are not always bad but this is a Crises Lunation) -- The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and it makes favorable aspects to Mars in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces forming a Grand Water Trine, favoring creative and intuitive activities. There is a practical parallel to Saturn with a final sextile to Pluto. Pluto favors support from a group or people who can assist you in some way. Streamlining and research are very important to success.















*SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): It is important for you to plan for the future, especially around travel. Friends from your past or childhood will contact you this month. A social connection will bring great emotional fulfillment into your life.
The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on May 26-27 and the aspects are troublesome. There is a Crises Lunar Eclipse on the 26th, culminating with afflictions to Mercury-Venus-Neptune. There will be much instability, misunderstandings and deception when initiating at this time. Please pick another date!!! 












*CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): This month you have the power and the skills to manifest your goals and visions. Take command yourself. There will be a meeting or connection with people from your past, maybe even your childhood. It is not a time for big changes in your finances. Allow your finances and resources to build and grow. 
MAY 1: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn all day (until 10:30am ET on the 2nd). The Moon’s aspects are dominated by trines (good aspects) between Taurus and Capricorn, favoring socializing, relationships in general, making important decisions or signing agreements. Before the last trine to Mercury, the Moon crosses Pluto. It is important to eliminate the superfluous, non-essentials, complications and streamline before finalizing. 

















*AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17): Poor planning can lead to disappointment. Always go back over any project – you may have overlooked or left something behind. By month’s end, there can be a celebration – a wedding, birthday or anniversary. This will bring much joy into your life.
MAY 4: The Moon will be I the sign of Aquarius and there are many bad aspects in Aquarius on May 3. There is a brief period of time on the 4th between 12pm and 8pm ET when the Moon crosses Jupiter in Aquarius at 28 degrees. This is actually a favorable ending cycle. You feel optimistic and expectations are met. Being honest and ethical will pay off in the end.
MAY 31: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius starting on the 30th but the Moon makes a difficult aspect to Saturn square Uranus on the 30th so I prefer the 31st when the Moon trines Mercury (Retrograde now) and then Venus. Retrogrades are not always bad, especially if the last aspect is favorable. Mercury R favors reviewing and re-evaluating decisions. The last aspect is a trine to Venus in Gemini at 28 degrees. This is an Ending degree whereby matters can come to a successful conclusion, often due to the support of a friend. Agreements and compromises can be reached.  















*PISCES (February 18-March 19): There will be a meeting or connection with people from your past, maybe even your childhood. As the month proceeds, you will receive some shocking news. It is totally unexpected. Do not get involved. This is a letting go cycle so leaving any “troubled waters” behind you. 

MAY 5-6: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and there are all favorable aspects to almost all of the planets, ending with a sextile to Pluto and Venus (in Taurus). The Moon does cross Neptune before the Pluto-Venus aspects so spiritual and altruistic activities are best suited at the time. A Spirit Guide will be active now. Follow your intuition. Any creative endeavor will prove successful. Relationships are favored with creative people.
