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.

 

 

CRISIS LUNATIONS 2017:

 

NEW MOON:  March 28, April 26, May 25, June 24 and July 23

 

FULL MOON:  January 12, November 4, December 3 and January 2 (2018)

 

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 2016 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.

 

The Crises New Moon on March 8 2016 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. 

 

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. 

 

The September 16 Lunar Eclipse was a CFM and the crises really snuck up on me!  It started out with a lot of things had to be done at the last minute – a meeting with our County Council to give my testimony on the Urban Farm Tax Credit Bill (see my Facebook page) so I had to send emails to customers and local civic groups to write to the Council members.  My late aunt’s apartment had to be cleaned out and the elevator to the 4th floor did not work so I had to run down to the 1st floor and take the elevator to the 4th to have it open.  There was a laundry crisis with my dad, there was a PayPal misunderstanding and, the worst, I hid my wallet in a safe place and it took 4 days before I found it.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for FEBRUARY – All times are ET

 

FEBRUARY 2:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries but there is only a short period from 11am to 11:45am when the Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius.  This is a brief favorable time for inspired organization and long range planning.

 

FEBRUARY 4:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and there is a brief period during the night from 12:00am to 5:30am EST when the Moon trines Pluto and Mercury.  This time works better in Europe where it is 6 hours later.  It favors writing, research, meditation and all forms of practical decision-making and analysis.

 

FEBRUARY 10:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a Full Moon at 7:34pm EST so this is not a good time for surgery.  However, from 9pm to 12am EST, there is a brief period, after some enlightenment, when you can engage in spiritual, metaphysical or other educational studies, lectures or enterprises.  These are mental and introspective aspects.

 

FEBRUARY 15:  The Moon is in the sign of Libra and, from 10am to 8:45pm, it makes good aspects to Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun.  This is a good period for relationships, socializing, and seeking cooperation with others.  Fire and Air signs favor communications and inspiration.  Relationships are more inclined to be loyal and supportive.

 

FEBRUARY 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and there is a brief period from 9:30am to 2:30pm EST when the Moon makes favorable aspects – a parallel to the Sun and a sextile to Pluto.  This period favors working alone.  It is a good time to streamline projects.  Corrections must be made to ensure success.

 

FEBRUARY 19-20:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it makes a series of favorable aspects – lots of activity in the matter – from 1pm on the 19th to 6:30pm on the 20th.   At this time, the Fire signs are highlighted, favoring motivational and inspirational activities.  The last aspect is a conjunction with Saturn but it is well aspected so that you can receive assistance from an older, wiser person.  Saturn does require that you wait and be patient when delays occur – but they will not deny success.

 

FEBRUARY 23-25:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes a long series of favorable aspects – lots of activity in the matter.  From February 23 at 12:18pm EST (to 1pm on the 25th) when the Moon enters Aquarius, it ONLY makes favorable aspects to the planets in Aries, Libra and Sagittarius.  The last aspect is a sextile to Saturn so help is portended over a long period of time.  Progressive mental activities are favored.

 

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 month favors paying off debts, “paying in forward” in being generous to others and charity work.  It is advised that you take time to rest and relax.  Meditation is favored.  With so many planets in Aries now, do not take an action that you will regret.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aries on February 1 and the Moon activates the Cardinal Cross that occurs this month.  However, on FEBRUARY 2:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries but there is only a short period from 11am to 11:45am when the Moon trines Saturn in Sagittarius.  This is a brief favorable time for inspired organization and long range planning.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  This will be an important month to make plans for the future, such as travel or education.  Getting away will be helpful as you will see your circumstances in a different light.  A new and refreshing perspective will be helpful.  Deep, inner emotions will come to the surface.  It is important to address them and do not project them onto others – take ownership of these emotions.

            FEBRUARY 4:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and there is a brief period during the night from 12:00am to 5:30am EST when the Moon trines Pluto and Mercury.  This time works better in Europe where it is 6 hours later.  It favors writing, research, meditation and all forms of practical decision-making and analysis.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  The cold weather can affect your mood.  Consider D3 but NOT with calcium as this causes problems for the body.  Money is slow this month so restrain from excessive spending.  You will feel stresses but you are not sure what it is all about.  This could be political stresses to which you feel sensitive. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on February 5-early 6.  Matters initiated at this time will appear to go well until an unknown factor will cause delays and frustrations.  You can fail because there are too many strings attached.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  This is an excellent month for connections with family or people from your past or childhood.  It favors planning for the future, especially in connection with travel or education.  There will be a celebration this month.

              The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on February 7-early 8 but it makes major afflictions to the Cardinal Cross so any activity initiated will be fraught with crises and insecurities.  The activities will prove costly and disappointing.  It is a good month for Cancer but not on these dates.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  You will feel in the dark on certain matters occurring in February.  It is important to step back or go to a new location in order to gain a better perspective.  At times, you will feel bored but do not allow this mood to cause you to miss an opportunity.

            FEBRUARY 10:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a Full Moon at 7:34pm EST so this is not a good time for surgery.  However, from 9pm to 12am EST, there is a brief period, after some enlightenment, when you can engage in spiritual, metaphysical or other educational studies, lectures or enterprises.  These are mental and introspective aspects.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  Rest will be important this month if you are to avoid catching a cold or the flu.  There is a man with a legal background who may be important this month.  Do release any negative thoughts.  Sleep may be difficult.  I take Enerphos at night with Melatonin (on an empty stomach).  This really helps.

            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on February 11-12.  It is better to work alone.  Matters seem to run smoothly but there is an unknown factor that comes up at the end that produces too many delays or regulations.  You need to give it up.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   There could be a wedding or some celebration this month.  You may be dealing with someone who acts aloof and detached.  He is uncomfortable with his feelings – as well as yours.  Money may be slow because it comes through hard work.

            FEBRUARY 15:  The Moon is in the sign of Libra and, from 10am to 8:45pm, it makes good aspects to Jupiter, Saturn and the Sun.  This is a good period for relationships, socializing, and seeking cooperation with others.  Fire and Air signs favor communications and inspiration.  Relationships are more inclined to be loyal and supportive.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  You possess the resources and skills to take charge and make things happen!  Working alone is more efficient.  Express your enthusiasm in getting things done and you will be successful.

            FEBRUARY 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and there is a brief period from 9:30am to 2:30pm EST when the Moon makes favorable aspects – a parallel to the Sun and a sextile to Pluto.  This period favors working alone.  It is a good time to streamline projects.  Corrections must be made to ensure success.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  You will be quite busy this month.  The work may not really seem like hard work as you will enjoy what you are doing.  There is a man in authority.  He may not be aware of the problems around him.  Money is slow this month because a lot of work is required first.

            FEBRUARY 19-20:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it makes a series of favorable aspects – lots of activity in the matter – from 1pm on the 19th to 6:30pm on the 20th.   At this time, the Fire signs are highlighted, favoring motivational and inspirational activities.  The last aspect is a conjunction with Saturn but it is well aspected so that you can receive assistance from an older, wiser person.  Saturn does require that you wait and be patient when delays occur – but they will not deny success.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  During this month, it is wiser to wait for investments to bear fruit, not for spending or cashing in an investment.  It favors planning for the future, especially if travel is involved.  There may be some minor annoyances but you can easily handle them.

            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on February 21-22 and the Moon is fraught with a series of difficult aspects, ending with a square to Jupiter.  Endeavors commenced at the time will be impaired by crises and over-whelming power plays.  Mars squares Pluto during this period so no one can win.  The last aspect is a square to Jupiter and that causes excesses and high costs.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   You may be dealing with some important men this month.  One is rigid and not willing to spend his money.  He is not a person to ask for a raise.  The other man is emotionally aloof and difficult to reach or understand.  However, you will feel on top of your work and successful in doing the work yourself.

            FEBRUARY 23-25:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes a long series of favorable aspects – lots of activity in the matter.  From February 23 at 12:18pm EST (to 1pm on the 25th) when the Moon enters Aquarius, it ONLY makes favorable aspects to the planets in Aries, Libra and Sagittarius.  The last aspect is a sextile to Saturn so help is portended over a long period of time.  Progressive mental activities are favored.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  You will find yourself working hard to finish up some project.  It will not be easy but it will be completed.  This is a good month for medical studies or consultations.  You can find the right person for you now.  You could also meet someone in a medical profession. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on February 26-early 27 but there are many difficult aspects.  This is NOT a time to commence important activities.  Mars is very active, causing stress and conflicts in the sign of Aries.  Do NOT over-react when you feel something is unjust or unfair.  You may do or say the wrong thing.  Ending with a square, there will be so many rules, regulations and red tape that seem to deny success.
