CRISIS LUNATIONS 2017: 
 
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.
  
I first noticed this lunation in the early 1970s when my grandfather was in a nursing home. I saw that there were certain lunations in which the patients, called the Walkers, would pace more than usual. At that time, all I had was the Farmers Almanac to determine what was going on with the Moon. At first, I only used the Full Moon. Many years later, I saw that another astrologer, Richard Nolle, used the Perigee New Moon...and he is absolutely correct. These work the same.
 
NOTE:  Because it is long, I have posted more Personal Experiences at the bottom of this Column.
 
CRISIS LUNATIONS 2017:
 
FULL MOON:  December 3 and January 2 (2018)
 
DECEMBER 2017 EVENTS:   
 

  • DECEMBER 3:  Mercury turns Retrograde
  • DECEMBER 3:  Crises Full Moon at 10:47am EST at 11 Gemini-Sagittarius
  • DECEMBER 9:  Mars enters the sign of Scorpio (see my website)
  • DECEMBER 18:  New Moon at 26 Sagittarius at 1:30am EST

  • DECEMBER 22:  Venus goes Out Of Bounds
  • DECEMBER 22:  Mercury turns Direct
  • DECEMBER 25:  Venus-Saturn at 0 Capricorn, the World Point
 
 
GOOD DATES/PERIODS for DECEMBER – All times are ET
 
DECEMBER 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and there is a favorable period from 10:15am until 8:50pm EST when the Moon favors Neptune and Pluto.  The Earth alignment favors practical endeavors, coordinating a group project wherein you work ad hoc.  Pluto works best alone whereby the individual can be in control.  This is a good thing.
 
DECEMBER 7-8:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it forms excellent aspects from 12:30pm on the 7th through 5:30pm EST on the 8th.  The Moon actually forms a Grand Fire Trine with Uranus in Aries and Mercury-Saturn in Sagittarius.  Despite Mercury being Retrograde, this is an excellent time to re-think your ideas and considerations, to engage in inspired and motivational communications and to play Devil’s Advocate in teaching lessons or getting your point across to others.
 
DECEMBER 13-15:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio where it makes ONLY favorable aspects.  The Moon first crosses Mars at 2 Scorpio at 2:23pm EST so some totally new project may commence if initiating before this time.  It is important to find a mentor to help you get started.  There are many parallels so permanent support will be offered, with the last aspect being a parallel to Jupiter in Scorpio.  Help will be offered with any problems that need to be ironed out.  This period ends at 6pm EST on the 15th.
 
DECEMBER 17 (Questionable):  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it forms many conjunctions, indicating alignments, but the last aspect is a New Moon conjunct Saturn.  You can receive help from an older, more established person or authority figure that will assist you in drawing the matter to a conclusion.  Saturn does indicate delays but sometimes these can work to your benefit.
 
DECEMBER 22:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius.  After 9pm, Mercury will be Station and then Direct.  At this time, through 5 am EST on the 23rd, the Moon only forms favorable aspects to Uranus, Mars (parallel) and Venus at 27 degrees of Sagittarius.  This is a good time to commence progressive and unconventional activities and relationships.  Take a risk and a leap of faith into something new, while ending the old and outmoded in your life.
 
DECEMBER 24:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on December 23-24.  The Moon actually makes favorable aspects except there is a square to Mercury – a disagreement, a bad decision, a misunderstanding – and you must contend with this disruption.  From 12pm to 9:45pm EST on the 24th, there are only favorable aspects, ending with a sextile to Pluto.  You work better alone and when someone is missing.  Group energy may be significant.
 
DECEMBER 28-29 (Questionable):  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and it starts out with many favorable aspects until 10pm on the 28th through5:30am on the 29th when it opposes Mars-Jupiter.  The tendency is to over-react and do or say something that you will or SHOULD regret.  From 5:30am to 9am EST on the 29th, the Moon trines Pluto so it is a better time to work alone to accomplish your goals.
 
 
 
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):  It is important for you to step back, leave your normal milieu or go to a different location in order to gain a new perspective on your life and your current situation.  This is a time to save and allow your resources to collect for the future.  Introspection, spiritual studies and inner seeking are all favored this month.     
            The Moon is in the sign of Aries on December 26-27 but it only makes a long series of stressful aspects to planets in Cardinal signs.  This denotes that anything commenced now will be fraught with crises and disruptions.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  As the month begins, you may not “feel” very prosperous.  Try to be more flexible and less defensive.  By Christmas, this attitude will shift and you will feel transformed in some way, possibly through some financial experience.
            DECEMBER 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and there is a favorable period from 10:15am until 8:50pm EST when the Moon favors Neptune and Pluto.  The Earth alignment favors practical endeavors, coordinating a group project wherein you work ad hoc.  Pluto works best alone whereby the individual can be in control.  This is a good thing.        
DECEMBER 28-29 (Questionable):  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and it starts out with many favorable aspects until 10pm on the 28th through5:30am on the 29th when it opposes Mars-Jupiter.  The tendency is to over-react and do or say something that you will or SHOULD regret.  From 5:30am to 9am EST on the 29th, the Moon trines Pluto so it is a better time to work alone to accomplish your goals.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  There is a man around you who is holding onto money.  He may owe you something.  This is a month to finish up important tasks, especially if they are professional.  By Christmas, everything is about to change.  Your world will be altered in some way – and this is a good thing.  Planets are changing signs and a new cycle will begin.
            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on around December 3 when it makes many disruptive aspect to Neptune-Saturn-Mercury, Mercury turns Retrograde and it is a Crises Full Moon.  This is a bad time to initiate anything important.
            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on December 30-31.  There is little activity at this time but there will be disruptive misunderstandings that prove stressful.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  This month may appear a bit “mystical” for you.  You can manifest what you want through the sheer power of your Will.  This is a good time to go against tradition and take a risk, change traditions and try new things.  You will be offered many choices – FOLLOW YOUR HEART!
            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on December 5-early 6.  There are many difficult aspects ending with a square to Mars at 28 Libra.  In anger, the situation will end.  As a Cardinal sign, any situation commenced will be fraught with crises.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  Early this month you will need to walk away and leave a troublesome situation behind.  Take the high road and do not look back.  There will be a renewed awakening in your life at this time and your world is about to change.
            DECEMBER 7-8:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it forms excellent aspects from 12:30pm on the 7th through 5:30pm EST on the 8th.  The Moon actually forms a Grand Fire Trine with Uranus in Aries and Mercury-Saturn in Sagittarius.  Despite Mercury being Retrograde, this is an excellent time to re-think your ideas and considerations, to engage in inspired and motivational communications and to play Devil’s Advocate in teaching lessons or getting your point across to others.

   * VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  This is a good month to party and socialize with friends.  Do not allow the inner demons to hold you back from enjoying life.  There will be a loss this month but do not waste time fretting over the past.  Rejoice in what you now have.  Saturn and Uranus are changing signs so everything is about to shift.
            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on December 9-10 where it makes many aspects denoting a lot of activity around anything commenced at this time.  However, the period end with a square to Mercury-Saturn and this does not bode well for anything commenced now.  Bad decisions, misunderstandings and a lot of red tape will doom the activity to a sad end.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):  There may be a woman around you who may be difficult to know as she has suffered many wounds.  There is a man around you who may be charming but he is emotionally aloof.  This is a month to take a risk, break away from the familiar and try anything new and different.
            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on December 11-12.  The Moon makes many favorable aspects but it does make squares to Pluto and Uranus.  Be prepared for complications, disruptions and separations.  The last aspect is a sextile to Saturn.  With careful planning and organization, the matter can work out successfully – though not easily.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  The month commences with parties and socializing with friends.  It is a month for you (and many others) to take a risk, break away from your normal routines and relationships.  There is a rigid person around you and they make you feel worse – break free.
            DECEMBER 13-15:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio where it makes ONLY favorable aspects.  The Moon first crosses Mars at 2 Scorpio at 2:23pm EST so some totally new project may commence if initiating before this time.  It is important to find a mentor to help you get started.  There are many parallels so permanent support will be offered, with the last aspect being a parallel to Jupiter in Scorpio.  Help will be offered with any problems that need to be ironed out.  This period ends at 6pm EST on the 15th.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  New enterprises will commence with much enthusiasm but, with Mercury Retrograde, these will turn out to be a lot of hard work.  They can be successful but they will require more time and effort than originally planned.  By month’s end, you will find yourself enjoying family connections – this may not be your biological family however.
            DECEMBER 17 (Questionable):  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it forms many conjunctions, indicating alignments, but the last aspect is a New Moon conjunct Saturn.  You can receive help from an older, more established person or authority figure who will assist you in drawing the matter to a conclusion.  Saturn does indicate delays but sometimes these can work to your benefit.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  This is a month whereby a wish can be granted but you must make that wish NOW.  You may experience some sadness by mid-month – Pluto in Capricorn has brought heartache for many.  However, by month’s end, much joy will come through connections with others, possibly people from your past.  The holidays will bring happiness.
            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on December 18-20.  It makes many favorable aspect until Saturn changes signs – something is dropped for something much better.  Then, the only difficult aspect occurs at the end with a square to Uranus – a sudden ending and abrupt changes.  Surprise obstacles end the endeavor.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   A powerful woman who loves pets can be a strong ally this month.  A new project is offered but remember that Mercury is Retrograde.  Something is offered – emotional support is there for you.
            DECEMBER 22:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius.  After 9pm, Mercury will be Station and then Direct.  At this time, through 5 am EST on the 23rd, the Moon only forms favorable aspects to Uranus, Mars (parallel) and Venus at 27 degrees of Sagittarius.  This is a good time to commence progressive and unconventional activities and relationships.  Take a risk and a leap of faith into something new, while ending the old and outmoded in your life.
