CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020: 


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.

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.

MAY 22: New Moon at 2 Gemini 04

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

MAY 11-VERY EARLY 12: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from 6pm EDT on the 11th until 6am on the 12th, the Moon makes a series of aspects to Neptune-Sun-Pluto-Jupiter. In Capricorn, these aspects are best used for financial and business activities. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. Saturn is Retrograde so do not commence a new business venture but work with the situation at hand.

MAY 16-17: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and there is a very brief period from 6pm EDT on the 16th until 3:30am on the 17th when the aspects are excellent. The Moon sextiles Pluto-Sun-Jupiter, favoring any practical endeavors. It is a time for creative activities and, while working alone, groups can benefit you in some way. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. 

MAY 21: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and the best time for initiating is on May 21 through May 22 at 4am EDT. The Moon is aspect Neptune-Pluto-Jupiter favoring all practical, financial and business decisions and changes. Venus is Retrograde so you must work with its energies –

When Venus is retrograde, it provides lessons in evaluating the real worth and value of people and things in our life (Taurus-Libra issues). With existing relationships, this cycle produces experiences wherein it is easier to discern the relative worth and value of these people in your life. 

Discrimination is more effective. You become readily aware of any problems, differences or unresolved issues. It is NOT a time, however, to act upon any unfavorable awareness. It is purely a time of evaluation rather than direct action. As little frictions and disagreements crop up, they serve to remind you that the relationship is not perfect. Under the retrograde influence, you must assess the severity of the problem and the "cost-benefit" of the relationship. Only after Venus turns direct should you initiate any alienation if this is deemed necessary. 

With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. 

MAY 31: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and there is a brief period until 5am EDT when the Moon trines Pluto and Jupiter. The Moon is aspect Neptune-Pluto-Jupiter favoring all practical, financial and business decisions and changes. Venus is Retrograde so you must work with its energies – see Moon in Taurus. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is no necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. 


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 are experiencing a Neptune Cycle whereby there is something unknown to you so that you cannot make are accurate decision or evaluation. Be patient. Have courage in these difficult times. You may have to make some harsh decisions. Put a hold on spending. Allow your resources to grow. Wait on major expenditures. 

The Moon is in the sign of Aries from May 17 through 19. The aspects on the 17th and 18th start out favorably but eventually the Moon squares Pluto and Jupiter. Complications and excesses will cause major problems.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may experience a spiritual revival this month. Your Guardian Angels will work through relationships to bring help and protection. In some area of your life, you will feel victorious. However, by month’s end, you will receive some surprising news – something totally unexpected.


MAY 21: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and the best time for initiating is on May 21 through May 22 at 4am EDT. The Moon is aspect Neptune-Pluto-Jupiter favoring all practical, financial and business decisions and changes. Venus is Retrograde so you must work with its energies –

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This can be a happy time whereby you take advantage of the opportunity for rest and repose. If starting something new, there can be small annoyances but forge ahead and work through these minor issues. While difficult for Gemini, do not listen to rumors or hearsay – they only stress you. This is a month whereby you are granted one wish – MAKE THAT WISH NOW.


The Moon is in the sign of Gemini from late May 22 through early 24. Neptune seems to be the powerful significator. There can be misunderstandings, deceptions and disillusion in relationships. Remember, Venus is Retrograde – you can misjudge new relationships.

  * CANCER (June 21-July 22): Like Taurus, you may experience a spiritual revival this month. Your Guardian Angels will work through relationships to bring help and protection. In some area of your life, you will feel victorious. By month’s end, you will receive an important message.


The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on May 25-26 and, while the aspects start out very well, it ends with oppositions to Pluto and Jupiter. Oppositions mean oppositions and disagreements with other people. Pluto causes complications, red tape and unexpected difficulties. Jupiter indicates excesses and unexpected expenses. Not a good period to commence, especially with Venus Retrograde.

* LEO (July 23-August 22): There may be some sadness as the month commences but there will soon come a spiritual revival. As for many this month, your Guardian Angels will work through important relationships to bring help and protection. You will have many choices and opportunities this month. There is one choice that is very important – you must follow your heart in making this selection.


The Moon is in the sign of Leo on May 27-early 28. There is a period from 9pm EDT on the 27 through 9am EDT on the 28th where there is a sextile to Venus Retrograde. This Venus favors making amends with another, re-connecting with people from your past and looking for bargains (maybe online unless you live in Europe).
The Moon is in the sign of Leo on May 1 but it ends with an opposition to Mars – ending with an angry confrontation. Skip this day – better to be alone.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22): Try to be organized as there is a “poor planning” energy as the month begins – acting in haste, you may leave something out or behind. Changes are afoot – the dice have been cast. There is a resourceful person with positive energy who can help you achieve your goals, even short-term goals. Seek and accept his help. 


The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on May 29-30 (and into very early 31). There are disruptive energies at play until the ending aspects – the Moon trines Pluto and Jupiter from 12-5am on the 31st. The Moon is aspect Pluto-Jupiter favoring all practical, financial and business decisions and changes. Venus is Retrograde so you must work with its energies – see Taurus. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is not necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. The trine to Jupiter brings success even when this seems impossible.

The Moon is in the sign of Virgo on May 2-3 and the same ending aspects apply -- Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. The trine to Jupiter brings success even when this seems impossible.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22): There will be some type of “social gathering” this month – this can be through Zoom, Real Time and Skype so to keep social distancing. Yet, you still suffer from the isolation from people. Actually, this is a month to develop your occult and intuitive skills. There are many lectures online. Meditation with Tibetan Bells CDs is very helpful (I ordered these from Amazon since I cannot meditate in groups now).


The Moon is in the sign of Libra on May 4-5 and, while the aspects start out well, it ends with a square to Jupiter. There can be questionable ethics, exaggerated expectations and excessive expenses.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): This is a month to practice the art of Mental Magic – using the force of your Scorpio Will to manifest your needs. It is a time to work with occult interests. You possess the power of manifestation. Yet, you can find yourself day dreaming about what you want rather than actually manifesting. By month’s end, you will snap out of ambivalence and take charge of your life and manifest what you want.


The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio on May 6-7. This is a time of the Crises Full Moon and, while the ending sextile to Jupiter can help you succeed even when the odds are against you, there will be much disruptiveness and irritation.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): You may feel victorious in some area of your work or activities. You may receive some praise for your efforts. This is a month to follow your heart, to take a risk and try new things. You will feel emotional support by month’s end.


The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on May 8-9. While the ending aspect is a sextile to Mars, there are some disruptive aspects so it is best that you work alone. Do not spend or lend at this time. Hold onto your money.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): You will receive important news this month with supportive and encouraging information. Later, you will feel victorious in some activity in your life. There is a need for balance and moderation in your life this month. Watch your diet and get adequate exercise. 

MAY 11-VERY EARLY 12: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from 6pm EDT on the 11th until 6am on the 12th, the Moon makes a series of aspects to Neptune-Sun-Pluto-Jupiter. In Capricorn, these aspects are best used for financial and business activities. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is not necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic. Saturn is Retrograde so do not commence a new business venture but work with the situation at hand.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17): Despite the quarantine, you really feel on top of everything – your work and your personal life. Social distancing seems comfortable for Aquarians. By mid-month, there will be some Spiritual Guidance, an intuitive flash – you will perceive that you have outgrown some situation and move to “higher ground.” You walk away and you do not look back.


The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius from late May 12 to early May 14. There are too many changes, vicissitudes and disruptions for this to be a good time to initiate. Mars changes signs so something gets dropped or someone leaves; Venus turns Retrograde so there is a shift in some relationship; Jupiter turns Retrograde – both of these portend a shift in values.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19): There will be some type of “social gathering” this month – this can be through Zoom, Real Time and Skype so to keep social distancing. However, be careful of action taken or words spoken as you can adversely affect two relationships. By month’s end, your world will begin to change – a time of fulfillment and the completion of a stage of your life.


MAY 16-17: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and there is a very brief period from 6pm EDT on the 16th until 3:30am on the 17th when the aspects are excellent. The Moon sextiles Pluto-Sun-Jupiter, favoring any practical endeavors. It is a time for creative activities and, while working alone, groups can benefit you in some way. With Pluto, it is essential to simplify and weed out what is not necessary. Pluto wants to eliminate anything complicated and problematic.
