CRISIS LUNATIONS 2018: 
 
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 2018:
 
NEW MOON:  May 15 (2 days away from Perigee), June 13, July 13, August 11 and September 9 – this is a very long series of Crises New Moon periods
 
FEBRUARY 2018 EVENTS:   
 
JANUARY 26:  Mars enters Sagittarius

JANUARY 31:  Crises Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse at 11 Leo 37 at 8:27 am EST

FEBRUARY 15:  New Moon Solar Eclipse at 27 Aquarius at 4:05pm EST
 
 
GOOD DATES/PERIODS for FEBRUARY – All times are ET
 
FEBRUARY 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a brief period from 12:00am to 5:50 am EST when the Moon makes a trine to Uranus and this is bracketed by Mercury parallel Pluto and Sun parallel Jupiter.  This is a time for spirited inspiration, creative thinking and feeling that there is background support for your efforts.  The Moon is ONLY well aspected during this period.
 
FEBRUARY 2:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and the Moon favors Pluto and Jupiter from 12 pm to 2am on February 3.  This is an excellent time for practical affairs and long-range decisions that have a positive outcome.  Ethics pay off. 
 
FEBRUARY 9-early 10:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it makes favorable aspects to Mercury-Sun-Uranus from the 9th through 11:30am EST on the 10th.  Fire sign aspects always favor creative inspiration, education and motivational activities.  After these aspects are over and the Moon is VOC, Venus changes into its exaltation sign so, after these events, one can make a change for the better.  The Sun squares Jupiter so, after the success, do not over-extend yourself.
 
FEBRUARY 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and, from 7am to 5pm EST, the Moon favors Pluto and Jupiter.  This is an excellent time for psychic, intuitive and creative activities.  It favors metaphysical pursuits as intuition tends to be stronger now.  After the project is completed, one is in danger of leaving a strong situation for a lesser one.  Keep this in mind when making choices “post” the activity. 
 
FEBRUARY 24:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and there is a period from 2am to 2:45pm EST when the Moon sextiles Uranus.  This is a good time for progressive activities, getting around red tape and lucky breaks.  The Moon in Gemini supports mental activity and creative problem solving.
 
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):  This is a good month for you to treat yourself well.  This is a month to leave troubles behind and move away from a stressful situation.  There will be lots of fun activities with others this month – even work can be playful and stimulating while working with others.
            The Moon is in the sign of Aries on February 18-19 but there is little activity except the afflictions to the planets in Cardinal signs.  What is initiated now will be fraught with crises and disruptions.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  This is a good month for you to take risks, try something very new and leave caution to the winds.  Sounds like fun but not necessarily for a Taurus who appreciates their comfort zones.  This is a good time for healing activities or tending to the needs of others.  You will be working to finish up your professional projects – a job that will be well done.
            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on February 20-21 where it makes all favorable aspects until the very end when it opposes Jupiter.  While the activities keep you very busy, there can be issues with ethics and exaggerated expectations.  While you can be successful, it costs you more than it is worth or it is not want you really wanted after all.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  Several important people will be active in your life this month – a woman with strong opinions (and maybe a sharp tongue), a young man with lots of energy and enthusiasm and someone in an official position who will make important decisions based upon the rules and fair play.
            FEBRUARY 24:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and there is a period from 2am to 2:45pm EST when the Moon sextiles Uranus.  This is a good time for progressive activities, getting around red tape and lucky breaks.  The Moon in Gemini supports mental activity and creative problem solving.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  This is a year of significant endings and beginnings as Uranus tries to change signs and Saturn has changed signs.  You will feel the endings but these are activities and situations which you have outgrown.  There are new opportunities about to be presented but you are not quite sure what these are.  Use your intuition and go with the flow of the new.
            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on February 25-26.  The Moon makes many favorable aspects but it ends with a square to Uranus.  Something unexpected, a break in a relationship and a sudden turn of events will throw a wrench into your activities.  It is best to work alone now.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  You feel some uncertainty this month.  If there are stresses, you can easily walk away from them – remember this!  Do not act on impulse or say something that you may regret.  Act only when you have all of the information that you need to make a practical decision.  This month you will get your wish – MAKE THAT WISH NOW!
            FEBRUARY 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a brief period from 12:00am to 5:50 am EST when the Moon makes a trine to Uranus and this is bracketed by Mercury parallel Pluto and Sun parallel Jupiter.  This is a time for spirited inspiration, creative thinking and feeling that there is background support for your efforts.  The Moon is ONLY well aspected during this period.
            The Moon is also in the sign of Leo on February 27-28.  The Moon does not make many aspects at this time and it does end with a trine to Uranus, favoring inspired thinking and problem solving.  The Moon does make a square to Jupiter so you are warned to exercise moderation and proportion.  Do not OVER DO or OVER EXTEND your self, your time and your energies.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  This is a good month to plan for the future – travel, education and long-range goals.  Something “international” may be involved.  There may be a young person around you with illusional ideas and thinking.  If not another, caution against too much wishful thinking.  You may find yourself working with people with money and substance, family financial issues or a positive domestic situation.
            FEBRUARY 2:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and the Moon favors Pluto and Jupiter from 12 pm to 2am on February 3.  This is an excellent time for practical affairs and long-range decisions that have a positive outcome.  Ethics pay off.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):  You may be affected by the weather this month – maybe Vitamin D can help.  Dress appropriately for the weather!  It is important to be organized this month as you may leave something important behind or overlook something important.  You may not like this but you will need to make some strong decisions this month – no sitting on the fence.
            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on February 4-early 5.  It afflicts the planets in Cardinal signs, ending with an opposition to Uranus or a sudden breaking off and ending.  This is not a good period to expect cooperation.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  You may not have all of the information that you need in order to make an important decision this month.  Use your intuition and wait for a revelation to take place.  This is a month to plan for your “spiritual future.”  Lay a ground work of good deeds for a future spiritual reward.
            The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on February 6-7.  While there are good aspects in Scorpio, there will be a misunderstanding that clouds a decision, promises made that cannot be fulfilled and extra costs or a relationship disappointment.  This is not a good day, even for shopping, but it is not a terrible for your daily routines.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  This is an excellent month for family and relationship activities.  You will feel a sense of fulfillment and completion.  You feel some internal awakening of your latent potential.  You need to be assertive this month in dealing with strong women.
            FEBRUARY 9-early 10:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it makes favorable aspects to Mercury-Sun-Uranus from the 9th through 11:30am EST on the 10th.  Fire sign aspects always favor creative inspiration, education and motivational activities.  After these aspects are over and the Moon is VOC, Venus changes into its exaltation sign so, after these events, one can make a change for the better.  The Sun squares Jupiter so, after the success, do not over-extend yourself.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  Be organized and go over plans carefully.  Poor planning can be an issue that causes problems.  Do not leave anything important behind.  There are two people around you this month – a powerful woman with resources she has acquired on her own.  There is an immature person filled with fanciful ideas.  Act wisely in your dealings with these people.
            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on February 11-12.  There are favorable aspects until the end when there can be an unexpected turn of events that prove disruptive to your plans.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17): This is an excellent month for family and relationship activities.  You will feel a sense of fulfillment and completion.  There is a possible celebration with those close to you.  There is a strong spiritual energy around you.  Listen to your Spirit Guide.  Do not incur expenses – it is best to allow your money to grow for you. 
            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius from 10:12am EST on the 13th through the 15th.  The Moon makes good aspects but it ends with a Solar Eclipse – something may happen to eclipse the events initiated at this time.  The eclipse occurs at 27 degrees, an Ending Degree so that something will be drawn to a conclusion.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  Lots of changes this month with a possibility of travel.  You will finish up a project – one that was a lot of hard work…but it is done!  This is an excellent time for medical consultations, a spa day or holistic health activities. 
            FEBRUARY 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and, from 7am to 5pm EST, the Moon favors Pluto and Jupiter.  This is an excellent time for psychic, intuitive and creative activities.  It favors metaphysical pursuits as intuition tends to be stronger now.  After the project is completed, one is in danger of leaving a strong situation for a lesser one.  Keep this in mind when making choices “post” the activity.
