CRISIS LUNATIONS 2018: 
 
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.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for AUGUST – All times are EDT - Keep in mind that Mars and Mercury are Retrograde (see article on my website www.lynnkoiner.com)  The link is also posted on my Facebook Page www.facebook.com/groups/NCGRAnnapolis 
                                    
AUGUST 2:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries on August 1-2.  There are some disruptive aspects but there is a brief period between 8:30pm and 10:45pm EDT on the 2nd  that favors reviewing ideas and materials.  You might even get someone to reconsider a prior judgment.

AUGUST 5: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus from 3am to 7:45 pm EDT and, during this period, it makes a Grand Earth Trine with Pluto in Capricorn and Venus in Virgo (28 degrees).  This is an excellent time for making practical decisions, possibly financial.  With Mercury R, it is a better time to re-view your finances and make an adjusted decision.

AUGUST 13 (after 2am EDT): The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it forms trines to Pluto and then Mars at 29 Capricorn R.  This is a great aspect for second chances – if you have not been successful before, now is a time to try again, especially with some practical project.  Pluto prefers to work alone.   Do not allow others to interfere, as they may have done in the past.

AUGUST 18: The Moon is in the sig of Scorpio and, from 4am to 11am EDT, the Moon’s sole aspect is a sextile to Mars R.  Like the 13th, this is a time for second chances - to try again and not allow others to interfere.

AUGUST 24: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and there is a brief period from 10pm to 12am (25th) when the Moon makes a trine to Venus in Libra.  This is a time for social contacts, even if online.  It favors a Social Media announcement or calling a friend.  There is a parallel to Jupiter that occurs around 6am on the 25th so the benefits do carry over.

AUGUST 28: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and there is a brief period from 2am to 9:30am when the Moon makes a sole aspect to Mars in Capricorn DIRECT at 28 degrees.  This is a excellent time to draw some matter/project to a successful conclusion.  You may have gone over this matter several times, making improvements.  Now is the time to finalize.  

SEPTEMBER 1: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus once again.  There is a brief period after 3:30pm when the Moon makes a parallel to Mercury and a trine to Mars.  This is a much better period for initiating action and coming together on an important decision.

    
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 month to review family resources, connect with affluent people and to seek medical advice from a supportive practitioner.  There is a strong woman there to help you.  She is good with money so you need to trust her.
    The Moon is in the sign of Aries on August 1-2.  There are some disruptive aspects but there is a brief period between 8:30pm and 10:45pm EDT on the 2nd that favors reviewing ideas and materials.  You might even get someone to reconsider a prior judgment.
    The Moon returns to Aries on August 28 (12:35pm EDT through 7:04pm on the 30th).  This is NOT a time to initiate anything.  The problems of others will cause interference.  The last aspects are afflictions to Venus and Mars causing a relationship crisis that ends everything with a dispute.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It is important for you to be balanced in your judgments this month.  Do not over-react when something is unjust or unfair.  Treat yourself well, maybe spend time at a spa or  massage clinic.  There is a man around your who is emotionally aloof and dettached.  He will not change.
    AUGUST 5: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus from 3am to 7:45 pm EDT and, during this period, it makes a Grand Earth Trine with Pluto in Capricorn and Venus in Virgo (28 degrees).  This is an excellent time for making practical decisions, possibly financial.  With Mercury R, it is a better time to re-view your finances and make an adjusted decision.
    The Moon returns to Taurus on August 31 through September 1.  The Moon makes many good aspects but, on September 1, there is an affliction to Mercury-Jupiter.  An error in judgment will cause problems and a disappointment.  There is a brief period after 3:30pm when the Moon makes a parallel to Mercury and a trine to Mars.  This is a much better period for initiating action and coming together on an important decision.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Money may be slow this month, even receivables.  It is a good month to finish up important projects.  Pay off debts - do not allow them to carry over.  And, be generous with those who have less.  You may not have money but you can give your time and be kind and helpful.
    The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on August 6-7 but there are many disruptive aspects.  The 150 degree aspects indicate conflicts that occur around you – do not get involved.  Venus changes signs so someone leaves for something much better.  Uranus turns Retrograde so there is a disruptive shift in direction.

 * CANCER (June 21-July 22): With all of the Retrogrades, there is a lot of indecision.  Choices are difficult to make - then wait until there is clarity.  There will be some news about a money issue.  You will hear something that makes you sad.  NOTE: When this aspect happened to me, I was in Poland.  It worried me but it was how sad I felt after going through the Old Synagogue.  
    The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on August 8-9.  The aspects are similar to those on August 1 – anything initiated now will be fraught with crises, insecurities, delays and complications.  Try another day!

* LEO (July 23-August 22): You are working hard this month finishing up important projects and tasks.  But, this is a month for you to take a risk, a leap of faith and try something outside of your “comfort zone.”  Your Spirit Guide is close to you this month so follow your intuition, especially in relationship matteres.
    The Moon is in the sign of Leo on August 10-11 but it is the time of an Eclipse which is actually a Crises New Moon.  Do NOT initiate anything important now or in the days leading up to the Eclipse as your endeavors will be fraught with crises – something will eclipse the matter and get in the way.  If forced by circumstances to initiate, one in authority can help you in the end.  It is important, however, not to get involved with complications that are not your own.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22): Money can be slow this month, even with receivables.  Yet, there are those around you who are willing to help you, even if just offering emotional support.  There is a powerful woman around you now, possibly one who likes animals.  She has good business sense and she can prove to be supportive.
    AUGUST 13 (after 2am EDT): The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and it forms trines to Pluto and then Mars at 29 Capricorn R.  This is a great aspect for second chances – if you have not been successful before, now is a time to try again, especially with some practical project.  Pluto prefers to work alone.   Do not allow others to interfere, as they may have done in the past.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22): You will feel more energy this month.  You will be enthusiastic about something and this will give you energy.  This is an excellent month for medical endeavors – studying, going to an alternative clinic, being inspired by a new eating plan and being guided into doing what is best for your health.  Your wish will be granted this month so MAKE THAT WISH NOW.
    The Moon is in the sign of Libra on August 14-15 but anything initiated now will be fraught with crises that you will feel that you need to fix.  You cannot fix everything.  In the end, there will be anger and conflict so pick another day to start something important.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Everything is about to change – the dice have been cast!  This is an excellent time to plan for the future, especially for a travel adventure.  This is also a month wherein wishes can be granted – MAKE THAT WISH NOW!
    AUGUST 18: The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, from 4am to 11am EDT, the Moon’s sole aspect is a sextile to Mars R.  Like the 13th, this is a time for second changes - to try again and not allow others to interfere.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): This is an excellent month for family activities.  You seem to have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for all activities BUT there is something unknown to you.  Do be cautious when you do not have all of the facts.
    The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius from August 18-20 and it makes all great aspects except there is a square to Neptune – this is where you do not have all of the facts, something is left out, facts are omitted  so only act when you have full clarity.  The last aspect is actually a trine to the Sun in Leo.  If you want to miss the Neptune aspect, you must act from 7:15pm to 7:45pm EDT.  On the 19th, Mercury turns Direct so there is a shift or change in direction.  Something starts to move forward.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): Lots of work but it seems enjoyable.  Do not overtax yourself.  Take time to rest.  Do not do anything that you really do not want to do.  Define boundaries.  You will come to resent others taking advantage of you and not feeling appreciated.
    The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on August 21-very early 23.  Normally, the Moon crossing Mars in Capricorn can be a good aspect but the Moon afflicts Saturn, Venus and Pluto and the Sun changes signs.  Complications will arise.  Since Mars is R, Mars and the Moon are coming together.  This means there will be an agreement to end the matter without proceeding further.  Mars is at the Ending Degree (28).

 * AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17): You will not like it but you may find yourself dealing with authority or authoritarian rules and regulations.  Yet, you will feel on top of it all.  You are working at your “master craft” and you will be successful.
    AUGUST 24: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and there is a brief period from 10pm to 12am (25th) when the Moon makes a trine to Venus in Libra.  This is a time for social contacts, even if online.  It favors a Social Media announcement or calling a friend.  There is a parallel to Jupiter that occurs around 6am on the 25th so the benefits do carry over.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19): Everything is about to change this summer.  This is a great “beginning cycle” for all.  There is a man and a woman who will offer support.  The male is strong and forceful, possibly a lawyer.  This woman is successful in business.
    AUGUST 28: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and there is a brief period from 2am to 9:30am when the Moon makes a sole aspect to Mars in Capricorn DIRECT at 28 degrees.  This is a excellent time to draw some matter/project to a successful conclusion.  You may have gone over this matter several times, making improvements.  Now is the time to finalize.
