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. 

 

NEW EVENT 2017:  Around the January Crises Full Moon, I caught a burglar in my dad’s closet.  He has been coming into the house and just taking a little at a time.     On the March 28 Crises New Moon, the prosecuting attorney called to say that she read the police report and she could not believe what I did to catch the guy – something that she could not do at 35!  You see, I grabbed his butt, dragged him out of the closet and refused to let him out of the house until he told me how he got in.  I let him out but chased him up the street, yelling for help (people only watched and did nothing, including the 12 electrical workers on the street).  I got his tag number and vehicle description so the police were able to pick him up right away. 

Another crisis occurred as a good friend had a stroke.  This is very upsetting!!!

 

 

APRIL 2017 EVENTS:   

 

·        April 6:  Saturn turns Retrograde at 27 Sagittarius

·        April 9:  Mercury turns Retrograde at 4 Taurus

·        April 11:  Full Moon at 21 Libra 33 at 7:07pm EDT

·        April 15:  Venus turns Direct

·        April 20:  Pluto turns Retrograde at 19 Capricorn

·        April 21:  Mars enters Gemini

·        April 26:  New Moon at 6 Taurus 27 at 8:17am EDT

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for APRIL – All times are ET - WARNING:  Venus is Retrograde and then Mercury turns Retrograde after Venus turns direct.  This is not a good month in general for important matters.

 

APRIL 4:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer where is makes many difficult aspects.  However, from 8am to 4:30pm EDT, the Moon makes a trine to Venus Retrograde.  This period favors a positive resolution and conclusion after a difficult situation.  For example, after messy divorce proceedings, a positive agreement is achieved, ending the matter. 
 
APRIL 6:  The Moon is in the sign of Leo and, after 6am EDT until 8pm EDT, the Moon forms a Grand Fire Trine with Uranus and Saturn R at 27 degrees.  This is a good time for inspirational and motivational work – anything that requires enthusiasm.  With Saturn at 27 Sagittarius, it is a great time to finish up any important projects.
 
APRIL 13:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and there is a brief period after 8:30 pm EDT when the Moon trines Venus R at 26 degrees.  This period is not strong for initiating anything important.  The favorable aspect to Venus Retrograde supports gaining insight upon a relationship, agreeable endings, and “financial returns are more likely.”
 
APRIL 21:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, from 8 am to 2 pm EDT, the Moon sextiles Saturn R and Mercury R.  Retrogrades moving towards the Moon usually indicate some type of mutual agreement.  This period favors repeating a task, receiving a reply or re-doing something.  At 29 degrees, it favors drawing a matter to a conclusion.
 
APRIL 25:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries from 2:15pm to 5:30pm EDT.  Retrogrades moving towards the Moon usually indicate some type of mutual agreement.  This period favors repeating a task, receiving a reply or re-doing something.  At 26-27 degrees, it favors drawing some matter to a conclusion.
 
APRIL 26-27:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on the 26th through 9:15pm EDT on the 27th.  It is the best aspect day of the month.  It starts with a New Moon in Taurus and then favors Neptune-Pluto-Venus.  This is an excellent time for financial decisions, despite Mercury R.  You may have changed your mind and re-evaluated a matter.  With Venus at 29 degrees, the matter is finalized.
 
 
 
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 time in early April to finish up a professional project.  Then, take time to enjoy and celebrate with your family and loved ones.  Something unknown will present itself by month’s end.  A choice will have to be made.  This may not be easy.
            APRIL 25:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries from 2:15pm to 5:30pm EDT.  Retrogrades moving towards the Moon usually indicate some type of mutual agreement.  This period favors repeating a task, receiving a reply or re-doing something.  At 26-27 degrees, it favors drawing some matter to a conclusion.

   * TAURUS (April 20-May 20):   You may hear some shocking news as the month begins.  This is a good month for medical studies or tests.  Medical people will be important to you in April.  Something spiritual will be offered.  Do not be so set in your ways that you cannot accept what is offered.
            APRIL 26-27:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on the 26th through 9:15pm EDT on the 27th.  It is the best aspect day of the month.  It starts with a New Moon in Taurus and then favors Neptune-Pluto-Venus.  This is an excellent time for financial decisions, despite Mercury R.  You may have changed your mind and re-evaluated a matter.  With Venus at 29 degrees, the matter is finalized.

  * GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  Do not act in haste this month – poor planning can be a problem.  Everything is about to change this month and some of the changes will be surprising.  This is a good month for medical studies or tests.  Medical people will be important to you in April. 
            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on April 1 with the last aspect being an opposition to Saturn.  Matters commenced will appear to run quite smoothly but suddenly an obstacle will oppose your efforts.  It will be best to let go and not proceed.
            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on April 30-May1 and it is a time fraught with conflict, disruptions and opposition.  This is just a bad day to start anything.

  * LEO (July 23-August 22):  This month a wish will be granted – make that wish NOW!  Day dreaming can be a good escape.  You will feel on top of your work and successful in your endeavors despite the Retrogrades.

   * VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  There will be some shocking or surprising news this month.  However, the focus of April is to manifest personal WILL – through the force of your Will, you can manifest whatever you desire.  This is a good month for inner spiritual and psychological searching.  Inner knowledge is stressed above external things.
            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on April 7-8 but it is very badly aspected, ending with an opposition to Venus R and a square to Saturn R.  Anything commenced at this time will prove costly due to blocks and obstacles.

   * LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   Despite the Retrogrades, there will be positive influences in April.  Your energies are strong so you have the enthusiasm to take on a challenge.  You will find yourself partying with friends.  There will also be a wedding or social event.
            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on April 10-very early 11.  There is a period on the 11th from 8am to 2 pm EDT that favors organizing and re-organizing any problems that have arisen at this time.  Maintaining high standards will be important.

 * SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  You have experienced some difficulties recently.  Sometimes sleep is difficult (I recommend Best Rest Formula 4 pills at night).  You need to make plans for the future – a trip or education.  This will help brighten your spirit.
            APRIL 13:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and there is a brief period after 8:30 pm EDT when the Moon trines Venus R at 26 degrees.  This period is not strong for initiating anything important.  The favorable aspect to Venus Retrograde supports gaining insight upon a relationship, agreeable endings, and “financial returns are more likely.”

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  This is a great month for travel and educational plans – this includes teaching or traveling to a conference.  There is a powerful man around you but he does not see a problem around him.  Be aware.  Everything is about to change now!!
            The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on April 15-early16.  Venus turns Direct and all seems to proceed smoothly but then the Moon squares the Station Venus causing financial or relationship problems.  Lastly, it crosses Saturn and this will cause serious delays.  Not a good time to initiate.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  April will be a very spiritual month for you.  Relationships will be guided into your life by a Higher Hand (Spirit Guide).  Look to the astrological aspects and lunations for the timing of important events.  Use your spiritual knowledge and psychic perceptions to guide your way through this month.
            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on April 17-18.  Initially, matters commenced at this time will seem to proceed favorably but then a series of crises interrupts your endeavors.  In the end, someone in authority will block you and end the matter.

  * AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   April will be a very active month.  You will receive an important message.  You will be very busy but it is enjoyable work.  Despite the Retrogrades, continue with your pursuits with enthusiasm.  Work with the Retrogrades to review or re-negotiate.
            APRIL 21:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, from 8 am to 2 pm EDT, the Moon sextiles Saturn R and Mercury R.  Retrogrades moving towards the Moon usually indicate some type of mutual agreement.  This period favors repeating a task, receiving a reply or re-doing something.  At 29 degrees, it favors drawing a matter to a conclusion.

 * PISCES (February 18-March 19):  You will feel victorious in some matter this month.  You may gain some recognition and respect from others.  Follow the astrological lunations and aspects in making important decisions.  An important opportunity may be offered this month but you may not see it.  Be aware of what is happening with others.
            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on April 22-23.  Matters initially proceed smoothly but soon obstacles and “red tape” restrictions present themselves.  With the last aspect being a conjunction with Venus at 28 Pisces, you can end the matter successfully.
