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.
 
NOTE:  Because it is long, I have posted more Personal Experiences at the bottom of this Column.
 
CRISIS LUNATIONS 2018:
 
NEW MOON:  May 15 (2 days away from Perigee), June 13, July 13, August 11 and September 9 – this is a very long series of Crises New Moon periods
 
MAY 2018 EVENTS:  
 
APRIL 29:  Full Moon at 9 Scorpio at 8:58 pm EDT
 
MAY 15:  CRISES NEW MOON at 5:48am EDT at 24 Taurus 36
MAY 15:  Uranus enters Taurus (Uranus will Retrograde back and forth all year until it permanently enters Taurus permanently in March 2019).  This is a great Ending and Beginning Cycle for all
MAY 15:  Mars enters Aquarius (see may website for an interpretation) – it is difficult because it squares Uranus at 0 Taurus
 
MAY 20:  The Sun enters Gemini at 8:15pm EDT
MAY 25:  Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces
MAY 29:  Full Moon at 8 Sagittarius 10 at 8:20am
 
GOOD DATES/PERIODS for MAY– All times are EDT
 
APRIL 29-30:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and, after the Full Moon at 8:58 pm EDT on the 29th, it forms all favorable aspects, ending with a sextile to Pluto-Mars.  This is an excellent time for practical activities, taking charge and empowering yourself.

MAY 2-3:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and, from 5pm on May 2 through 6:45pm on the 3rd, the Moon only makes a trine to Uranus but it is at 29 degrees.  This is a significant time to draw some matter to a creative conclusion.

MAY 8:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and there is a brief period from 7pm to 8:25 pm EDT when Mercury is contra-parallel Neptune (a temporary connection) and sextile Uranus at 29 degrees.  This is a significant time to draw some matter to a creative conclusion.  Intuition can be a factor.

MAY 10:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and, from 11am on the 10th to 3am on the 11th EDT, the Moon makes a series of favorable aspects to the Sun-Pluto-Mars.  This is an excellent time to finish up important projects with the support from one in authority.  Mars is exalted in Capricorn so you can achieve recognition for your efforts.

MAY 15:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and there is a Crises New Moon.  After 9:30am, Uranus has changed signs and the Moon trines Mars at 29 Capricorn.  This is an excellent time to finish up projects and possibly receive recognition for your efforts.  DO NOT start earlier than 9:30am EDT!

MAY 16-early 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and, from 7pm on the 16th to 12 pm EDT on the 17th, the Moon is parallel the Sun (a permanent coming together) and conjunct Venus at 27 degrees.  This is an ending cycle but Venus concludes with fairness, persuasiveness and effective negotiations.  It is a good social time as well.

MAY 19:  The Moon is in the sign of Cancer and there is an excellent series of favorable aspects from 8am to 3pm EDT.  The Moon is parallel the Sun (a permanent coming together), Venus sextile Uranus and concluding with the Moon sextile the Sun at 28 degrees.  This is another ending cycle and one that offers the support from one in authority.  It may even be a good time to change jobs for some.

MAY 23:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and until 8:45am EDT the Moon favors Jupiter-Mercury-Pluto, actually forming a Grand Earth Trine during this period.  This is an excellent time for initiating practical affairs, making important decisions and even working with large groups.  There is a continuation of other favorable aspects, such as a trine to Mars so this is one of the best periods in May.
 
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):  The stresses in your life this month will be minor so “do not sweat the small stuff.”  Walk away from any stressful situation as it only wastes your time and energies.  Emotional support will be offered this month.  Choose wisely with whom you will associate this month – the drainers or the supporters.
            The Moon will be in the sign of Aries on May 11-12-early 13 but this period will be fraught with crises, ending in anger and a sudden breaking off.  AND, this periods leads up to a Crises New Moon so many will experience crises to which one over reacts.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  Initially, you will feel some type of loss but do not focus upon what you do not have, only what you have.  Everything is about to change – you will strongly feel this great Ending and Beginning Cycle.  Much will improve by the summer.  This will be a time of much enjoyment and pleasure.
            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on May 14-15 but there is a Crises New Moon on the 15th.  This does not affect everyone and the Moon actually makes all favorable aspect except an opposition to Jupiter denoting someone who makes a lot of promises that go unfulfilled.  The suggestion is not to reply upon others without a back-up.  For best results, wait until after 9:30am on the 15th.

 * GEMINI (May 21-June 20):  First, hold onto you money this month – no extravagant spending.  Yet, this is a month to treat yourself like royalty, pamper yourself and hang out with people who treat you well – no takers!  This is a favorable month for gatherings with family and friends.  This will turn out to be a social month.
            MAY 16-early 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and, from 7pm on the 16th to 12 pm EDT on the 17th, the Moon is parallel the Sun (a permanent coming together) and conjunct Venus at 27 degrees.  This is an ending cycle but Venus concludes with fairness, persuasiveness and effective negotiations.  It is a good social time as well.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  This month may not be easy.  Do not allow others to take advantage of you at work.  There could be a relationship issue that needs to be addressed.  You may need to check out your health this month.  Any problem could just be stress related.
            The Moon is in the sign of Leo on May 20-21 and there are only difficult aspects – EXCEPT, there is a parallel to Mercury until 1:15pm EDT on the 21st.  This favors communications or a permanent coming together with communication.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):  Everything is about to change this month.  First you will receive an important message.  Exercise caution with any major expenditure – make sure that you are getting a good deal and do not over spend.

 * LIBRA (September 23-October 22):  You may feel a longing for change in your life so it is a great time for planning for the future.  The plans could involve travel or something educational.  You are in charge of your own fate and destiny.  Use your force of Will to manifest what you want.
            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on May 24-25.  Jupiter trine Neptune is protective but the Moon makes many difficult aspects.  In Cardinal signs, this will generate crises, ending with problems through red tape and complications that nullify the endeavor.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  This is a good month to reconnect with people from your past, possibly your childhood.  You will experience a duality this month – an internal quest for self-understanding and external activities that require energy and enthusiasm.
            The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn on May 4-5.  While matters may start out smoothly on the 4th, the ending aspects are fraught with crises, complications and an abrupt ending.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):  This month you will find yourself dealing with people in authority.  These can be government or institutional authorities, a powerful but sympathetic woman and a man who appears cold and aloof.  Each will have to be addressed differently.  Do not appear contrary or uncooperative.
            MAY 8:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and there is a brief period from 7pm to 8:25 pm EDT when Mercury is contra-parallel Neptune (a temporary connection) and sextile Uranus at 29 degrees.  This is a significant time to draw some matter to a creative conclusion.  Intuition can be a factor.
