CRISIS LUNATIONS 2016: 

 

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.

 

 

CRISIS LUNATIONS 2017:

 

NEW MOON:  March 28, April 26, May 25, June 24 and July 23

 

FULL MOON:  January 12, November 4, December 3 and January 2 (2018)

 

PERSONAL 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.

 

Full 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).

 

Full 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.

 

Full 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 New Jersey .  I was so cautious pulling out because the road visibility was poor.  A truck filled with young people, who were obviously speeding, hit my car.  If the good aspects helped, the worse did not happen.  We were fine, no damage to the truck (the driver claimed I did all kinds of damage but I clued the insurance company of what he was trying to pull and I had photos to prove my point), and the kind folks at the visitors’ center came out and helped tie the bumper back onto the car so that I could continue my trip.  Everyone was so kind there.  I learned on this trip that any visitors’ center can arrange discount rooms. 

            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!

 

The 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. 

 

The 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! 

 

Just 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 Delmont NJ .”  Delmont is the location of the state prison.  He has been in jail for a year, filed the papers while in jail and now he needs money when he was up for parole on August 18 (papers filed on August 12).  Yes, he will probably never be able to work with his criminal record.  I was sent a list of New Jersey lawyers, thinking I would try to buy him off as opposed to calling my insurance company.  It is being handled by their fraud department and, if they simply call the jail warden, he may be heading back to jail to finish his sentence.

UPDATE:  Adam is still looking for money.  At the June 2016 CNM, I traveled to New Jersey to give my deposition.

I 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 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. 

 

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. 

 

The 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.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for DECEMBER – All times are ET

 

DECEMBER 2:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and there is a very brief window for “relating” and connecting with people after 9:30pm until 5am EST on the 3rd.  The Moon makes a lot of afflictions to the planets in Cardinal signs so, preceding the “resolution,” there will be many crises.  If you act during the brief window when the Moon only crosses Venus, there will have been a number of crises occurring before the positive resolution.  Exercise caution with this period.

 

DECEMBER 4:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes all good aspects.  It does cross Mars in Aquarius and the sextiles Uranus.  This is a good aspect for innovative projects, surprise assistance, lucky breaks and success comes from a sudden and unexpected event.

 

DECEMBER 9:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries and the favorable window of time is from 1pm to 8pm EST when the Moon crosses Uranus and sextiles Mars, similar to December 4.  Again, it favors the innovative, progressive and benefits come in a sudden, unexpected manner.  Any favorable aspect to Mars favors projects, activism and progressive reforms.

 

DECEMBER 13:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and it makes many afflictions on the 12th until late on the 13th.  But, after 7:30pm EST, it moves to a trine to Mars at 26 Aquarius.  This is a better period for drawing a project or activity to a successful conclusion.

 

DECEMBER 26-27:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, after 6pm EST on the 26th, it makes only favorable aspects, ending with a sextile to Venus at 8:45pm on the 27th.  The Moon does cross Saturn in Sagittarius and this can impose delays but the conclusion is successful.  So, if you need to act in a hurry, you need to wait until after 4:30pm on the 27th but finish by 8:40pm EST.  The aspects are expansive, mentally stimulating and socially favorable.

 

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):  There is a major transformation about to occur in your life.  The Old Order is passing away and the new is about to commence.  There is a Spirit Guide entering your life who will guide. Special people in your life will prove very supportive.  Like Pisces, this is an excellent month for pursuing spiritual and metaphysical studies, to learn more about yourself and your inner strength.

            DECEMBER 9:  The Moon is in the sign of Aries and the favorable window of time is from 1pm to 8pm EST when the Moon crosses Uranus and sextiles Mars, similar to December 4.  Again, it favors the innovative, progressive and benefits come in a sudden, unexpected manner.  Any favorable aspect to Mars favors projects, activism and progressive reforms.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  This is a month to make plans for the future, possibly a trip or educational event.  Yet, your energy level may be low.  As a Taurus, watch the thyroid as this can lower your energy level.  You will feel much better in a sunny location or in the spring.  Take extra Vitamin D as this too can affect your moods. 

            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on December 10-11 and, while this period has many good aspects, it ends with a square to Mars in Aquarius.  A conflict or dispute may occur due to anger combined with contrariness.  When annoyed, people do just the opposite – a self-defeating tendency (one that I am always working on myself).

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  Some inner potential will awaken this month.  It is a time to release your inner child.  This is a good time to finish up your professional projects.  Change, travel and professional movement can occur through your on Power of the Will.  You command your own forces and you determine your own fate.  You have the power this month, since this new strength will awaken.

            DECEMBER 13:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and it makes many afflictions on the 12th until late on the 13th.  But, after 7:30pm EST (on the 13th), it moves to a trine to Mars at 26 Aquarius.  This is a better period for drawing a project or activity to a successful conclusion.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  Do not allow your feelings to take control and speak/say something that you will later regret.  Do not “sweat the small stuff” this month.  Let others help you.  This is an excellent time to plan spiritual and metaphysical studies, especially in areas of healing.

            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on December 14-early 15.  It is a day when the Moon makes only bad aspects -- ending with a square to the Jupiter-Uranus opposition.  Anything begun at the time will be fraught with crises and disruptions that could prove costly.  In world events, this can be a difficult day, even for the stock market.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):      The dice have been cast and everything is about to change.  This is a good time to make plans for change, especially for distant travel.  Inner powers will awaken this month, as this will happen for many in December.

            The Moon is in the sign of Leo on December 17.  The Moon makes great aspects until the last aspect – an opposition to Mars at 29 degrees.  The conclusion will be disruptive and an ending of a relationship.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  It is important to look to the future, to make plans for the future.  You may be experiencing a sadness but the future brings sunlight into your life.

            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on December 19 when Mars enters Pisces and Mercury turns Retrograde.  The Moon ends with a square to Saturn and the Sun.  This indicates that, if you commence anything of importance at this time, there will be delays and a disagreement with one in authority that ends the matter.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):   A sudden change or surprise will occur this month.  Everything is about to change but you have the power and control to master any new circumstance.  You possess all of the skills that you need to succeed in 2017.

            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on December 22. The Moon afflicts all of the planets in Cardinal sign, ending with an opposition to Uranus Retrograde.  Crises and disruptions will occur with an enterprise commenced at this time and it ends with a mutual agreement to separate.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  It is suggested that you make a change, take a trip, meet new people in order to gain a new perspective.  You are a Water sign so you are advised to be more in touch with your emotions and find a passion in your life.  Do not hold yourself aloof from others and your feelings.  Like Libra, you have the power, skills and the resources to master any situation that arises this month.

            The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on December 23-early 25 where it makes all great aspects … until the last aspect, which is a square to Venus.  Later, Venus sextiles Jupiter-Saturn-Uranus so all turns out well in the end.  An ending square to Venus often indicates that you make some type of social faux pas that may displease others.  Do not spend too much or initiate a costly endeavor.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):  You will complete your work but it will be exhausting.  A sudden change, surprise or unexpected turn of events occurs this month.  This is a good time for advanced spiritual and esoteric studies, especially where you learn about your inner spiritual nature.

            DECEMBER 26-27:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, after 6pm EST on the 26th, it makes only favorable aspects, ending with a sextile to Venus at 8:45pm on the 27th.  The Moon does cross Saturn in Sagittarius and this can impose delays but the conclusion is successful.  So, if you need to act in a hurry, you need to wait until after 4:30pm on the 27th but finish by 8:40pm EST.  The aspects are expansive, mentally stimulating and socially favorable.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  This is a good month for dealing with authority figures.  If a job opportunity presents itself, look for an established company that is privately owned.  New projects are about to begin – but take care with Mercury Retrograde.

            DECEMBER 2:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and there is a very brief window for “relating” and connecting with people after 9:30pm (on 2nd) until 5am EST on the 3rd.  The Moon makes a lot of afflictions to the planets in Cardinal signs so, preceding the “resolution,” there will be many crises.  If you act during the brief window when the Moon only crosses Venus, there will have been a number of crises occurring before the positive resolution.  Exercise caution with this period.

            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on December 28-30.  All starts out well on the 28th but the New Moon will bring a change of circumstances and crises and complications will begin.  Do not commence at this time.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):   You should have experienced a lot of changes and vicissitudes.  This month is a time to relax and recuperate.  Watch your diet, especially around the holidays, and take better care of yourself.  Not that there is illness around you but your body just needs some TLC (tender loving care).

            DECEMBER 4:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes all good aspects.  It does cross Mars in Aquarius and then sextiles Uranus.  This is a good aspect for innovative projects, surprise assistance, lucky breaks and success comes from a sudden and unexpected event.

NOTE:  I am actually leaving for Europe on the 3rd, after the farmers market.  However, after getting to the airport, I will not check in until the Moon enters Aquarius at 2:45pm EST.  A true commencement begins which you cannot back out or change your mind.  Once I go through security, I cannot change my mind so I will wait.  Actually, I will arrive around 2:45pm so it will not be a long wait.  I want to avoid the Void of Course period.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  This is a month for planning for the future, not taking action.  Mercury will turn Retrograde and finances will be slow.  It is an excellent month for pursuing spiritual and metaphysical studies, to learn more about yourself and your inner strength.

            The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on December 6.  While the Moon makes good aspects, it ends with a square to Saturn.  What is commenced of importance at this time will be frustrated by delays and red tape.  The venture may prove to be more costly due to the delays.
