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.
find that you are only affected by one of the Crisis Moon periods, usually
one that falls close to a natal planet.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
MOON: March 28, April 26, May
25, June 24 and July 23
MOON: January 12, November 4,
December 3 and January 2 (2018)
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.
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).
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.
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
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!
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.
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!
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
Adam is still looking for money.
At the June 2016 CNM, I traveled to New Jersey to give my
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.
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.
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.
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.
6: Jupiter turns Retrograde
at 23 Libra 08
10: Full Moon at 22 Leo 28

DATES/PERIODS for FEBRUARY – All times are ET
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
