CRISIS LUNATIONS 2016: 

 

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.

 

 

CRISIS LUNATIONS 2016:

 

FULL MOON:  September 16 (Lunar Eclipse), October 16, November 14

 

 

PERSONAL EXPERIENCES:  Full Moon: The Full Moon of July 3 2012 was 2 days away from perigee.  It seemed like the worst Crises Lunation to me with the horrible storm, loss of power and the loss of my beautiful Yard Tractor when a huge tree fell on it, crushing all but the headlights.

 

Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse:  On April 25 2013, the Perigee Moon occurred at the time of the lunar eclipse.  This has been a terrible time with fires, explosions and political crises.  Around May 25, another eclipse, bridges collapsed and earthquakes brought destruction.  Personally, I have had health issues around these eclipses and mechanical problems – a DVD got stuck in my TV with a DVD combo and then a CD got stuck in my car CD player (at least, the car is still on warranty).

 

Full Moon:  I have been experiencing endocrine-related health issues since last November (2012).  After finding a wonderful doctor and feeling much improved, the July 20 2013 Full Moon brought a big-time relapse for reasons I do not understand.  It could have been stress-related - the impending county fair, a friend visiting, and NCGR conference – but I improved by August 13.

 

Full Moon:  The Full Moon Crises Lunation of August 21 2013 was the one that hit me with a vengeance.  I am a very cautious driver and, on the 20th, despite wonderful transits and progressions in my chart for this period, I had a very bad accident pulling out of the visitors’ center in Wildwood New Jersey .  I was so cautious pulling out because the road visibility was poor.  A truck filled with young people, who were obviously speeding, hit my car.  If the good aspects helped, the worse did not happen.  We were fine, no damage to the truck (the driver claimed I did all kinds of damage but I clued the insurance company of what he was trying to pull and I had photos to prove my point), and the kind folks at the visitors’ center came out and helped tie the bumper back onto the car so that I could continue my trip.  Everyone was so kind there.  I learned on this trip that any visitors’ center can arrange discount rooms. 

            For the CFM of June 2014, my small female cat developed sinusitis.  At first, the vet did not diagnose it properly so the medication I was giving her did not work.  Finally, I just took the cat to stay over with the vet until he could observe her properly.  This was a very stressful time when the cat was in crisis!

 

The October 8 2014 Crisis Lunation hit people closest to me – my partner had a second eye stroke from high blood pressure.  We are hoping that his sight will return in early 2015 but he can no longer work – this is a big crisis! 

            One of my best friends hired a group to work on her house – they did nothing correctly and it was a disaster!  And, because they did not speak much English, she could not tell them what she wanted. 

 

The Crises New Moon of February 18 2015 was horrible and long lasting.  What I thought was a sinus infection turned out to be a tooth issue and did not resolve easily or quickly.  Enough said about this! 

 

Just before the Crises Full Moon of August 29, 2015, I was served papers stating that I was being sued.  I was traumatized.  As I read the papers, the lawsuit was regarding a minor accident I had at the Crises Full Moon on August 21 2013 (see above).  The only damage was to my car but the lawsuit states that he has suffered permanent disability and he will never be able to work again.  A good friend, with a Stellium in Virgo in the 12th (she should have been a detective), researched Adam V. Walker on the internet.  The paper said that he “resides in Delmont NJ .”  Delmont is the location of the state prison.  He has been in jail for a year, filed the papers while in jail and now he needs money when he was up for parole on August 18 (papers filed on August 12).  Yes, he will probably never be able to work with his criminal record.  I was sent a list of New Jersey lawyers, thinking I would try to buy him off as opposed to calling my insurance company.  It is being handled by their fraud department and, if they simply call the jail warden, he may be heading back to jail to finish his sentence.

UPDATE:  Adam is still looking for money.  At the June CNM, I traveled to New Jersey to give my deposition.

I thought that the August 29 Crises Lunation was bad but October 27 2015 is as bad as it can get.  If I listed all of the crises and things that have gone wrong, you would be crying too.  This set off my trip in which I had no flexibility for any mishap.  On future trips, I will remember that NOTHING BAD has ever happened to me.   Guardian Angels are always with me – just go with the flow.

 

NEW – The Crises New Moon on March 8 was a solar eclipse.  During this time, my oldest cat and only female became very ill.  She had lost so much weight and, despite heroic efforts by my Vet, she passed away in my arms in the bed covered with an electric blanket. 

            Even worse, there was the crises in Brussels and other parts of the world with terrorists killing many people. 

 

NEW – The Crises Lunation of August 2013 keeps coming back like a bad penny.  Around the April 2016 CNM, not only did I have car problems due to a bad recall repair, I received a notice to appear in New Jersey again for a deposition on the last CNM in June.  See the Adam Walker link above.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for AUGUST – All times are EDT

 

AUGUST 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and there is a brief period from 12pm to 8:30pm EDT when the Moon trines Mars at 29 Scorpio.  This is an excellent ending cycle for drawing some action to a successful conclusion.

 

AUGUST 2-3:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a New Moon at 4:45pm followed by favorable aspects to Venus and Uranus.  The New Moon can be a good time to start something new and it is supported by relationships and innovative activities. 

 

The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on August 4-5.  The Moon does make favorable aspects from 12pm to 11pm EDT on the 5th.  The last aspect is a conjunction with Jupiter in Virgo – favoring support for helpful, service tasks.  However, after the Moon goes VOC, Mercury squares Saturn (9:18am EDT on the 6th).  I am not sure how this will impact anything commenced on the 5th.

 

AUGUST 9-10:  The Moon in the sign of Scorpio makes great aspects except for one occurring at 10:22 pm on the 10th.  If commencing on the 9th, there will be one stumbling block with a conflict with one in authority.  Because the Sun is in Leo, this would be a strong person of influence.  If you wish to miss the Moon square Sun, commence AFTER 3pm EDT.  The last aspect is a sextile to Jupiter, supporting any service activity, since Jupiter is in Virgo.  Jupiter can help you succeed, when it may not seem possible, and to overcome the obstacle with the authority figure.

 

AUGUST 15:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn.  There is a brief window of opportunity for commencing something important – between 10 pm and 10:30 pm EDT when the Moon trines Jupiter.  This period is supportive and it helps overcome the earlier afflictions.  Ethical behavior is essential at this time!

 

AUGUST 23-24:  The Moon in the sign of Taurus and it only makes favorable aspects to other planets.  However, at 7:27 am EDT on the 24th, Mars conjoins with Saturn and it will lead to a square to Neptune on the 26th.  This can create an obstacle or block – which you can overcome but it is there.  To miss this aspect, commence after 8 am EDT and before 3:30pm EDT on the 24th.  At this time, the Moon trines the alignment of Venus-Jupiter-Mercury portending a successful and practical conclusion for your efforts.

 

AUGUST 28:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and, from 6pm onward, the Moon makes a series of favorable aspects to Venus-Jupiter-Mercury.  However, you must finish up what you are doing at this time.  With Mercury at 29 degrees, it is excellent for completions.  Because Mercury turns Retrograde on the 30th, you must complete at this time.  If there is some “holdover” activities, they will be disrupted when Mercury changes direction.

 

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 on that day.

 

  

  

 

* ARIES (March 19-April 19):  There may be issues around a woman who may be envious.  There is sadness in her life.  Handle the situation diplomatically.  Health and health care may be important this month.  Be sure to give reassurance to one who needs some “mane-stroking.”  Kind words go a long way.  By month’s end, take time to rest and disengage from stressful situations.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aries on August 21 but it ends with afflictions to Pluto and Uranus.  Do not commence on this day as the matter will end in a crisis and unexpected results.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  August is an emotionally satisfying month for you.  First, a message and a new idea manifests for you.  There will be a family or social gathering – possibly even a wedding.  This is a good social month for you.  Emotional support will be offered by someone who cares.

            AUGUST 23-24:  The Moon in the sign of Taurus and it only makes favorable aspects to other planets.  However, at 7:27 am EDT on the 24th, Mars conjoins with Saturn and it will lead to a square to Neptune on the 26th.  This can create an obstacle or block – which you can overcome but it is there.  To miss this aspect, commence after 8 am EDT and before 3:30pm EDT on the 24th.  At this time, the Moon trines the alignment of Venus-Jupiter-Mercury portending a successful and practical conclusion for your efforts.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  You may have some concerns about money this month.  It is mostly in your head so get it out of there!!!  You will be busy this month but it will be exciting.  You may be involved with a small group that keeps you busy and stimulated.  You will find that emotional support is offered this month.

            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on August 25-26 but the last aspects are a square to Jupiter and Mercury.  This causes disagreements, errors in judgment and an exaggeration of facts and expectations.  These all contribute to losses.  You may attract people who play a role rather than be sincere.  They can exaggerate promises.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  You feel great energy and enthusiasm for starting something new.  It may be that enthusiastic people are in your life and this generates energy within yourself.  You will find yourself leaving a troublesome situation – do not look back.  This is a good month to enjoy children, to be child-like in your activities and creativity and even possibly go horseback riding!

             AUGUST 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and there is a brief period from 12pm to 8:30pm EDT when the Moon trines Mars at 29 Scorpio.  This is an excellent ending cycle for drawing some action to a successful conclusion.

             AUGUST 28:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and, from 6pm onward, the Moon makes a series of favorable aspects to Venus-Jupiter-Mercury.  However, you must finish up what you are doing at this time.  With Mercury at 29 degrees, it is excellent for completions.  Because Mercury turns Retrograde on the 30th, you must complete at this time.  If there is some “holdover” activities, they will be disrupted when Mercury changes direction.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  You will find yourself dealing with powerful and enthusiastic men this month.  It is essential that you behave diplomatically.  Do not say anything that will come back to haunt you in the future.  Do not offend these people, even if you believe that you are right.

            AUGUST 2-3:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a New Moon at 4:45pm followed by favorable aspects to Venus and Uranus.  The New Moon can be a good time to start something new and it is supported by relationships and innovative activities.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  This is a great month for socializing with friends.  There may be a cause for celebration, such as a wedding (possibly even a same-sex wedding).  You will have a great time!  You will be very busy this month but it is enjoyable and not tiring.  Sometimes work can be more like play.  In the end, there will be a great awakening – suppressed or overlooked talents and insights will rise to the surface of your awareness.

            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on August 4-5.  The Moon does make favorable aspects from 12pm to 11pm EDT on the 5th.  The last aspect is a conjunction with Jupiter in Virgo – favoring support for helpful, service tasks.  However, after the Moon goes VOC, Mercury squares Saturn (9:18am EDT on the 6th).  I am not sure how this will impact anything commenced on the 5th.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   This month seems to focus upon health and health services for many of the signs, including Libra.  You may find yourself caring for another who is in need of some serious TLC (tender loving care).  This month you will need to step back and gain a new perspective before making any important decisions – a trip, meditation or discussing concerns with others can help you to gain that new perspective.  You MUST change as everything is about the change in your life.

            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on August 7.  The Moon afflicts Pluto-Uranus so, if you commence at this time, you will be drawn into mediating a lot of crises and conflicts.  It is best to avoid this date for timing.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  There may be an envious woman around you this month.  She is fearful and insecure – reassure and show compassion.  This is a month to work on your spirituality and future plans – these plans must be ethical and have a spiritual basis.  You may feel hurt by someone this month but it is soon over and the sun shines for you.  “If you take the moral high road,” you will feel good about yourself.

            AUGUST 9-10:  The Moon in the sign of Scorpio makes great aspects except for one occurring at 10:22 pm on the 10th.  If commencing on the 9th, there will be one stumbling block with a conflict with one in authority.  Because the Sun is in Leo, this would be a strong person of influence.  If you wish to miss the Moon square Sun, commence AFTER 3pm EDT.  The last aspect is a sextile to Jupiter, supporting any service activity, since Jupiter is in Virgo.  Jupiter can help you succeed, when it may not seem possible, and to overcome the obstacle with the authority figure

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  You will work hard to complete an important project this month.  Do this before Mercury turns Retrograde at the end of August.  Gaining a new perspective is another theme this month for many of the signs.  For Sagittarius, you are not always right.  Step back and gain a perspective upon your situation and your views this month.  Exercise diplomacy as someone you offend may come back to haunt you. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on August 12.  There are many difficult aspects to the planets in Mutable signs and Saturn changes direction.  This is not a good day to initiate because there will be many changing circumstances, requiring too much adaptability and change of plans.  Too much time adapting and changing plans will prove costly.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):   This is a good month to work on your spiritual life, making plans for the future.  In the material world, you are completing some important tasks and they were hard work.  Once this is done, you will only experience some minor annoyances – remember, you do not have to solve every problem.

            AUGUST 15:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn.  There is a brief window of opportunity for commencing something important – between 10 pm and 10:30 pm EDT when the Moon trines Jupiter.  This period is supportive and it helps overcome the earlier afflictions.  Ethical behavior is essential at this time!

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   This is a good month for reunions, connecting with pleasant experiences and relationships from your past or even renewing a former romance.  You have completed an important task but these have left you battle-hardened.  It is important to step back and view your life from a very different perspective.  Sometimes travel – just getting away – can help you with this.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius on August 16-17.  The Moon makes all favorable aspects until the last aspect – the Full Moon at 25 Aquarius.  In the end, you will experience an opposition with one is authority and the situation will end.  You can start now but only if no other person can be involved or impact you in any way.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  Health, health care and health services are highlighted this month.  Take care of your self and take care of the well being of others.  You own energies are running high this month – lots of enthusiasm for embarking upon new endeavors.  The astrological indicators will be important for you this month – watch the New and Full Moons and the Stations of the planets for timing events in your life.

            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on August 19 but this is not a time for anyone to initiate as there are many oppositions, ending with an opposition to Mercury and Jupiter.  This causes disagreements, errors in judgment and an exaggeration of facts and expectations.  These all contribute to losses.
