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.

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.  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.

CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020:  No Eclipses this year on a Crises Lunation

FULL MOON:  February 10, March 10, April 7, May 6

NEW MOON:  September 18, October 16, November 14

FEBRUARY 2020 EVENTS:

FEBRUARY 9:  Crises Full Moon at 20 Aquarius at 2:33am ET

FEBRUARY 16:  Mars enters the sign of Capricorn at 6:33am ET

FEBRUARY 16:  MERCURY TURNS RETROGRADE at 12 Pisces – see my website for information on Mercury Retrograde

FEBRUARY 23:  New Moon at 4 Pisces at 10:32 am ET
GOOD DATES/PERIODS for FEBRUARY 2020 – All times are ET. 

FEBRUARY 9:   The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a brief period – from 4am to 11am ET -- after the Crises Full Moon, wherein you can take a successful action.  Yes, this is a Crises Lunation period but, if you desire to take a positive action to remedy a problem, this is a good period.      

FEBRUARY 13:
  The Moon is in the sign of Libra and, for a brief period between 3-4:30pm ET, the Moon favors Mars at 28 Sagittarius.  This is a good period to take action and draw some matter to a successful conclusion. This is an ending aspect at 28 degrees.

FEBRUARY 14-early 15: 
The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio until it makes its finally aspect at 5:19pm ET on the 15th.  The Moon makes excellent aspects, ending with a sextile to Saturn.  This can indicate help from an older or more experienced person.  You succeed through careful planning and any delays will work to your benefit.  However, before the ending favorable aspect, there is a square to the Sun – you may have to give up something to succeed.  There is an opponent (the Sun) but he is not strong.  Remember this – the Sun is in a weak sign of Capricorn. 

FEBRUARY 16 – Oh No!  Mercury turns Retrograde again


FEBRUARY 17:
  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and Mercury is Retrograde but the Moon favors the Sun after 12pm ET (actually until 4 am ET on the 18th).  This period favors drawing some matter to a conclusion, possibly with the support of one in authority.     

FEBRUARY 19-20:
  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from 9am on the 19th to 12pm on the 20th, the Moon makes favorable aspects.  It ends with a parallel to Jupiter and, before that, a sextile to Neptune.   At 9:16 am on the 20th, the Moon crosses Saturn – earlier it crosses Pluto.  Working with Mercury Retrograde, these aspects work favorably if you re-evaluate to simplify any complications and allow the delays to review so that these all work to your benefit.  I have observed that the Neptune aspects indicate that a Guardian Angel or your own intuition help to save the day.    

FEBRUARY 21:
  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes great aspects to Uranus, parallel Saturn and sextile Venus (ending with the Sun sextile Uranus).  This is an excellent time for new, progressive and inventive thinking.  Relationships with innovative thinkers are favored.  Venus is cooperative and it is excellent for persuasive communications.

FEBRUARY 24 until 9am on the 25th:
  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes excellent aspects, following the New Moon in Pisces.  The Moon does cross Neptune at 1:26pm ET on the 24th.  Review information received at this time since mis-interpretations and errors in judgment can occur but it is good for following your intuition.  The favorable aspects from Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn ending with a parallel to Mercury R favor simplifying, weeding out the extraneous and taking your time to re-organize.

FEBRUARY 28 (after 5:30pm) until 5:30pm on the 29th:
  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and this is an excellent period (but remember to work with the Mercury R guidelines) for practical affairs and progressive thinking.  The ending aspects are to Neptune and Jupiter together but this is NOT an ending cycle. 


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 month to manifest courage, strength and determination – to empower yourself with the Will to Good.  Beware of the uncontrolled impulsiveness and emotional detachment.  If you hurt someone this month, the impact will return to you.  Be Kind.
            The Moon is in the sign of Aries on February 26-27.  With the Moon going through a Cardinal sign, it afflicts all of the planets transiting Capricorn.  If you initiate at this time, your efforts will be fraught with crises, delays and entanglements.  Pick another day.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):  Taurus is not much of a “risk taker” but, as best you can, you will benefit from taking a calculated risk, a leap of faith and allow your intuition to guide you this month.  Discharge your obligations.  Clear the path for a new financial opportunity, an offer that benefits you.
            The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on February 1-2 and, while it makes many, many favorable aspects, the last aspect is a square to Mercury in Aquarius.  All of your actions may have been based upon incorrect information.  This causes worry and anxiety over the outcome.  Do NOT put anything in writing at this time because you may change your mind, possibly when Mercury turns Retrograde.                         
     FEBRUARY 28 (after 5:30pm) until 10:52am ET of March 1:  The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and this is an excellent period (but remember to work with the Mercury R guidelines) for practical affairs and progressive thinking.  The Ending aspects are a trine to Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn so this is an excellent time for practical affairs and long-term commitments.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):   There can be a birth around you but this can also be the birth of new, creative ideas.  It is a month to treat yourself like royalty, pamper yourself and be around people who treat you with respect.  There are others around you who are younger and more enthusiasm for accomplishment.  Energy and enthusiasm manifest by month’s end.
            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on February 3 (after 6:30am ET0 through February 5 (until 9:19am ET).  The Moon makes afflictions to Neptune-Mars-Venus and this is a difficult combination for relationships, financial decisions and conflicts, possibly with someone who is “always right.”  It is an unstable time.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):  You seem indecisive regarding the stressful situations in your life.  The answer is to simply take off your blind fold and walk away!  This is a time for feelings of peace, contentment and security but do not become lazy as a new financial opportunity will be presented by month’s end.  Mercury is Retrograde so take time to think about it.  It is only at the IDEA stage now.
            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer late on February 5 to early on February 7.  Being a Cardinal sign, any action take now will be fraught with crises, complications and delays that are insurmountable.   We are approaching the Crises Lunation and problems and over-reacting can start now.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  In one area of your life, you will feel victorious with possible honors and praise.  In another, you may feel the opposite.  It is essential that you take time to rest, to get away from all stress, to relax and even practice meditation.
            FEBRUARY 9:   The Moon is in the sign of Leo and there is a brief period – from 4am to 11am ET -- after the Crises Full Moon, wherein you can take a successful action.  Yes, this is a Crises Lunation period but, if you desire to take a positive action to remedy a problem, this is a good period.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):   This is a month to make plans for the future, especially those plans that impact finances in a positive way.  There can be some “spiritual” connection with this.  This is really a month of new beginnings – births of all types, even creative ideas – and a new financial opportunity will be presented by month’s end.  Mercury is Retrograde so it is a time to think about the opportunity.
            The Moon is in the sign of Virgo from February 10 through early February 11.  While it has many good aspects, there is a square to Mercury-Neptune, denoting misunderstandings and mis-information.  It ends with the Moon squaring Mars in Sagittarius.  You can act too quickly and this will cause problems.  Someone does not know when to back off.  The matter will end in a conflict.  Pick another day!

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):  An important new message is coming to you this month.  You may find yourself dealing with people in authority or officials.  This is neither good nor bad but something that needs to be done.  By month’s end, strength, courage and determination will dominate with the assistance of another.  This could be a holistic practitioner who gives you the energy or a nurturing, supportive person (this can also mean that you are supporting another as well).

FEBRUARY 13:  The Moon is in the sign of Libra and, for a brief period between 3-4:30pm ET, the Moon favors Mars at 28 Sagittarius.  This is a good period to take action and draw some matter to a successful conclusion.   This is an ending aspect at 28 degrees.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  As the month commences, you feel some indecision, choices that may be difficult to make – initially.  Later, you will be active but enjoying the activity.  It can be work related, working with others, but enjoying working with comrades.  By month’s end, you will experience optimism, enjoyment, visiting warmer areas and even working on your garden.
            FEBRUARY 14-early 15:  The Moon is in the sign of Scorpio until it makes its finally aspect at 5:19pm ET on the 15th.  The Moon makes excellent aspects, ending with a sextile to Saturn.  This can indicate help from an older or more experienced person.  You succeed through careful planning and any delays will work to your benefit.  However, before the ending favorable aspect, there is a square to the Sun – you may have to give up something to succeed.  There is an opponent (the Sun) but he is not strong.  Remember this – the Sun is in a weak sign of Capricorn.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):   You feel much enthusiasm for finishing up professional tasks and getting work done.  This is a month for finishing up projects, not starting new ones.  There is courage to achieve but no inclination to change routines.  One in authority, possibly a Capricorn, does not like change – this is good or not.
FEBRUARY 17:  The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and Mercury is Retrograde but the Moon favors the Sun after 12pm ET (actually until 4 am ET on the 18th).  This period favors drawing some matter to a conclusion, possibly with the support of one in authority.

* CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19):  This is a Letting Go Cycle for many people this month.  Do not mourn the past but take pleasure in what you have.  Try to be flexible in your dealings with others this month.  More important, this will be a month of great mental and imaginative activity.  There are many choices – some known and some wishful.  Get out of your mind and take action for manifestation.
            FEBRUARY 19-20:  The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and, from 9am on the 19th to 12pm on the 20th, the Moon makes favorable aspects.  It ends with a parallel to Jupiter and, before that, a sextile to Neptune.   At 9:16 am on the 20th, the Moon crosses Saturn – earlier it crosses Pluto.  Working with Mercury Retrograde, these aspects work favorably if you re-evaluate to simplify any complications and allow the delays to review so that these all work to your benefit.  I have observed that the Neptune aspects indicate that a Guardian Angel or your own intuition help to save the day

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):  Aquarius can be aloof and detached emotionally.  This can make you very lonely so keep this in mind.  You will be quite busy this month but it will prove to be an energizing experience.  The Ending Cycle for you will be the ending of something that has made you stressed.  The Sun is rising and you will be just fine.
FEBRUARY 21:  The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it makes great aspects to Uranus, parallel Saturn and sextile Venus (ending with the Sun sextile Uranus).  This is an excellent time for new, progressive and inventive thinking.  Relationships with innovative thinkers are favored.  Venus is cooperative and it is excellent for persuasive communications.

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  This is a good month to pay your debts and to be generous with others.  This is a better month for spiritual work on yourself, to do some Soul Searching and to be a Seeker of Spiritual Wisdom, not material gains.  This is a Letting Go Cycle for you.  Do not mourn what has passed.  Focus upon the good things that are still in your life.FEBRUARY 24 until 9am on the 25th:  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes excellent aspects, following the New Moon in Pisces.  The Moon does cross Neptune at 1:26pm ET on February 24.  Review information received at this time since mis-interpretations and errors in judgment can occur but it is good for following your intuition.  The favorable aspects from Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn ending with a parallel to Mercury R favor simplifying, weeding out the extraneous and taking your time to re-organize.
