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: June 3
MOON: September 16 (Lunar
Eclipse), October 16, November 14
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
When Adam realized that I was not going to pay him off, he has
not responded to my insurance company.
He knows that, if he goes to trial, he will lose and then have to
pay court costs. I will
travel to New Jersey for the deposition – on the June Crises Lunation!
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 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.

DATES/PERIODS for JUNE – All times are EDT
Do take into consideration that Mars will be Retrograde.
4-5: The Moon is in the
sign of Gemini and this is a questionable date because of the Crises New
Moon. There are very bad
aspect in Gemini with the transiting Mutable Cross but there is a brief
period from 10:09pm EDT on the 4th until 12:45pm EDT on the 5th.
The Moon crosses Venus and the Sun, ending with a sextile to
Uranus in Aries. This is
favorable for relationships with innovative, creative people.
For example, this would be a good time to meet with astrology
7: The Moon is in the sign
of Cancer where it is strong. There
is only a brief period from 3:30pm to 8:45pm EDT when the Moon sextiles
Mercury and trines Mars R. A
favorable aspect to a Retrograde planet is always questionable.
Make sure that your action is well-thought-out and not impulsive.
In Water signs, use your intuition in taking action.
As the Moon applies to a Retrograde planet, there is a mutual
coming together in some type of relationship.
14-15: The Moon is in the
sign of Libra and it forms very nice aspects from 9pm EDT on the 14th
to 3am on the 15th – not a convenient time for the east
coast of the U.S. The Moon
trines the Sun-Venus in Gemini for it is excellent for relationships,
mental activity and even romance (trines are more romantic than sextiles).
15-16: The Moon is in the
sign of Scorpio and, while its last aspect is a conjunction with Mars R,
it only forms favorable aspects after it enters this sign (at 9:19am EDT).
The Moon sextiles Jupiter-Pluto so it is a good time to
re-evaluate financial matters, to come together with another on a
project or financial agreement and to take action, possibly one that you
can previously delayed.
23: The Moon is in the sign
of Aquarius but this is another questionable time.
The Moon will sextile Saturn, trine Mercury but, before it ends
with a sextile to Uranus in Aries, it will square Mars R.
This indicates a problem with poor cooperation, resistance and
challenges to you actions before any successful action can be completed.
There is a very brief period from 11am to 11:45am when the Moon
only sextiles Uranus. This
period favors working alone, cutting through red tape and finding lucky
breaks that help you to succeed. It
favors innovative action and communications.
28: The Moon is in the sign
of Aries but, from 8am EDT on the 28th to 3:45 am on the 29th,
the Moon forms several favorable aspects. This period is extremely
favorable for creative, innovative mental activity – the Moon crosses
Uranus and sextiles Mercury at 28 degrees.
The ending degree favors finalizing mental activity.

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.
