CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020: 

CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020: No Eclipses this year on a Crises Lunation
NEW MOON: September 18, 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.

AUGUST 2020 EVENTS: 

AUGUST 3: Full Moon 11 Aquarius at 11:59am EDT
AUGUST 15: Uranus Retrograde at 10 Taurus
AUGUST 18: New Moon at 25 Leo 35 at 10:42pm EDT


GOOD DATES/PERIODS for AUGUST 2020 – All times are EDT 

AUGUST 4: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and, from 10am to 5:30pm EDT, the Moon makes one favorable aspect – a trine to Venus in Gemini. This is a good social period rather than romantic – unless you are an Air sign and enjoy mental activity and conversation. With dating at the time of CV19, this is excellent for online dating. But it also favors webinars, online courses and creative writing.

AUGUST 11: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and it is well aspected from 1pm EDT onward, ending with a trine to Pluto and Saturn. This period favors practical affairs and activities. Goals are accomplished through re-organizing and eliminating what is extraneous and inefficient.

AUGUST 14: The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and, from 2am to 7am EDT, the Moon favors the Sun and Mars in Aries. This is an excellent period for communications, mental activity, support from someone in authority (someone who has real power) and completing a project with great enthusiasm and Arian energy.

AUGUST 18 (ALL DAY): The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it favors Uranus, Mars, New Moon, and crossing Mercury. This is an excellent time to begin a new project that requires a great deal of energy and enthusiasm, as well as mental activity. Yes, Mercury is in Leo and this is considered its Fall (astrologically). I have Mercury in Leo natally and I love it! But, I understand that I see things from a very personal point of view. When I teach, I use personal examples rather than theoretical ideas. So, try to be more objective in your decision making for the best results.

AUGUST 20: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it is well aspected from 2:30pm onward. The Moon aspects Pluto-Saturn and parallels Mars. This is a time for practical affairs and activities. Goals are accomplished through re-organizing and eliminating what is extraneous and inefficient. Both Pluto and Saturn are Retrograde so re-doing and eliminating are essential at this time.

AUGUST 24: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and it makes favorable aspects to Neptune-Pluto-Saturn from 4pm EDT onward. DO NOT start earlier as there is a Mars square Saturn aspect that would cause serious frustrations. This period also favors practical affairs and activities with success coming through re-organizing and eliminating the extraneous and unnecessary.

AUGUST 26-very early 27: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius. There is a brief period from 8pm EDT on the 26th to 7:45am EDT on the 27th. The Moon makes parallels to Pluto and Jupiter, ending with a trine to Mars in Aries. This is an excellent time for activities that require a lot of energy and enthusiasm. It is an inspirational time that favors long-range planning. It favors education and physical action.

AUGUST 31: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius once again and there is a brief period from 7pm to Midnight when the Moon makes a sextile to Mars in Aries. This is a period that favors completing projects.

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): You may feel victorious in your activities this month with possible praise from others. Annoyances will be small so “do not sweat the small stuff.” By month’s end, you will receive an important message – a good message than may involve a family with money. 
The Moon is in the sign of Aries from August 7 through early August 9. The Moon is making difficult aspects to the many planets in Cardinal signs. What you initiate will be fraught with crises, obstacles, complications and delays. Pick another day.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Lots of new ideas are presented this month and you seem to have the energy and mental enthusiasm to forge ahead. Do watch your health this month.

AUGUST 11: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and it is well aspected from 1pm EDT onward, ending with a trine to Pluto and Saturn. This period favors practical affairs and activities. Goals are accomplished through re-organizing and eliminating what is extraneous and inefficient.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20): There may be minor annoyances around you this month but do not “sweat the small stuff.” You receive a lot of emotional support, especially from one person in particular. By month’s end, your energy returns and you embark upon activities with great enthusiasm.
AUGUST 14: The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and, from 2am to 7am EDT, the Moon favors the Sun and Mars in Aries.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22): It is important that, in August, you find a way to step back and gain a new or different perspective upon your life situation. You may feel bonded to something that makes you feel anxious – but you have the ability to just walk away. By month’s end, there can be a cycle of emotional fulfillment through a family gathering or special event. All will be well in the end – nothing to worry about.
The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on August 15-16 but it makes many bad aspects to the many planets in Cardinal signs. Anything commenced at this time will be fraught with crises, complications and delays. Pick another day! There are many this month.

* LEO (July 23-August 22): Do not act in haste or over-react to anything that you feel is unjust or unfair. Over-reacting is never the correct solution. There is a powerful man around you this month. He can be beneficial but there is a “sneaky” person around him. Be diplomatic in pointing this out. By month’s end, you should be finishing up work projects.
AUGUST 18 (ALL DAY): The Moon is in the sign of Leo and it favors Uranus, Mars, New Moon, and crossing Mercury. This is an excellent time to begin a new project that requires a great deal of energy and enthusiasm, as well as mental activity.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19): There are two people active in your life this month. The male is more rigid and unchanging. He is insecure so he is not generous with his resources.

This is a month for team-playing and teamwork.
The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on August 5-6 and it starts out with great aspects. However, it ends with a square to Venus. There may have been mis-information or a misunderstanding along the way. In the end, a relationship ends with hurt feelings. This may be costly in some way.
