CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020:
CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020: No Eclipses this year on a Crises Lunation
NEW MOON: October 16, November 14
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.
Yet, there are times when events occur that are not transient. During a Crises Lunation in 2013, I had an automobile accident and, at another Crises Lunation in 2015, after getting out of jail this man with whom I had the accident tried to sue me for total disability, hoping that I would not show up in New Jersey for the deposition. In January 2019, at the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Crises Lunation, I received a message that my dad had passed away while I was in Switzerland.
NEW: August 2019 had a Crisis New Moon at the beginning and at the end of the month. This is somewhat like a Blue Moon month. The Blue Moon (see a short article on my website) is a Full Moon at the beginning and end of the month. It is my experience that it is like an entire month of Full Moon crises and tension.
August being bracketed by a Crises New Moon is like a month of crises – at least for me. I have a dental crisis, my sweet cat was very ill, and the non-profit that runs my farm has taken all of the joy out of farming for me. Yes, I have a good lawyer. The positive – I will be free from worrying about the gardens.
The Crises New Moon occurs on my birthday, August 30, 2020. A lunation occurring on or within a day of one’s birthday will trigger a major change within the coming year. This works even if it is not a Crises Lunation.
In September 2020, in the days leading up to the Crises New Moon, I had day-after-day of plumbing crises – every day for about 5 days another old pipe would break. The stress was so bad that I thought that I would end up in the hospital but I did not and, after the first couple of plumbing crises, it was much easier.
OCTOBER 2020 EVENTS:
OCTOBER 1: Full Moon at 9 Aries at 5:05pm EDT
OCTOBER 4: Pluto Station Direct at 22 Capricorn
OCTOBER 13: Mercury turns Retrograde at 11 Scorpio
OCTOBER 16: CRISES NEW MOON at 23 Libra at 3:31 pm EDT
OCTOBER 31: Full Moon at 6 Taurus at 10:49 am
OCTOBER 1: There is a Full Moon on October 1 and 31 – this is called a Blue Moon. I have observed in the past that a Blue Moon month is like having a Full Moon experience all month long.
GOOD DATES/PERIODS for OCTOBER 2020 – All times are EDT
OCTOBER 5: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, until 2:30pm EDT, it trines Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn. This period is excellent for all practical affairs, organization, streamlining and drawing maters to a successful conclusion.
OCTOBER 11-12: The Moon is in the sign of Leo and, from 5pm on October 11 to 10am EDT on October 12, the Moon favors Neptune, the Sun and it trines Mars Retrograde. Mars R warns us all never to act or speak inappropriately, as your energy will backfire on you. When Mars R is well aspected, it favors asserting yourself appropriately, using strategy and new techniques for getting your point across.
OCTOBER 14 (CAUTION): Mercury turns Retrograde on the 13th so it is Retrograde during the favorable aspects. The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on October 14 and the favorable aspects occur from 8am to 6:30 pm EDT. The last aspect is a trine to Saturn D. With Mercury R, it is a favorable time to review, reconsider and re-evaluate thoughts and decisions made prior to Mercury turning Retrograde. NOTE: This is the period leading up to a Crises Lunation.
OCTOBER 18: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and it makes favorable aspects from 12pm to 5:30pm EDT, ending with a sextile to Pluto-Saturn. With Mercury R, this period is best for simplifying, reorganizing, restructuring and eliminating the extraneous in order to achieve success.
OCTOBER 20: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, from 12pm to 11:30 pm EDT, the Moon only makes one aspect, a sextile to the Sun. Commencing during this period will not have a lot of activity but what is initiated can end well. Since the Sun is at 28 degrees, it is an Ending Cycle – a time for draw a matter to a successful conclusion.
OCTOBER 22: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, after 12pm EDT, the Moon only makes conjunctions to the planets in Capricorn (except the trine to Venus). Because the last aspect is the conjunction with Saturn, what is initiated will take much longer to accomplish than planned. This can work to your benefit – the delays -- since Mercury and Mars are Retrograde – giving you time to re-evaluate and re-design the activity. Someone will drop out but this will benefit you in the long run. They were not very helpful anyway.
OCTOBER 24: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, from 2am to 5:30pm EDT, the Moon favors Saturn (parallel) and Mars Retrograde. When Mars R is well aspected, it favors asserting yourself appropriately, using strategy and new techniques for getting your point across. Saturn parallels favor working with practical, well-organized people.
OCTOBER 26-27: The Moon will be in the sign of Pisces and, from 6am EDT on the 26th to 8:30pm on the 27th, the Moon sextiles Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn, followed by Venus and Mercury changing signs and going into signs where they are strong, the sign of Libra (Mercury is always strong in a Air sign). This is the best date in October, one that favors using your intuition in making practical decisions, simplifying and organizing a project. If done correctly, changes will occur for the better.
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.
