CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020:
CRISIS LUNATIONS 2020: No Eclipses this year on a Crises Lunation
NEW MOON: September 17-18, October 16, November 14
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, 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.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for SEPTEMBER 2020 – All times are EDT
AUGUST 31: The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and there is a brief period from 7pm to Midnight when the Moon makes a sextile to Mars in Aries. This is a period that favors completing projects.
SEPTEMBER 3: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and there is a brief period from 9am to 10:30am EDT whereby the Moon trines Venus in Cancer. Venus is always strong in a Water sign so this period favors cooperation in relating. It can be a time for special purchases.
SEPTEMBER 7: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, after 2:30am EDT, the Moon makes a series of excellent aspects, actually making a Grand Earth Trine that ends with a trine to Pluto-Saturn. This is an excellent time for practical affairs, financial activity and re-organizing for efficiency.
SEPTEMBER 9-10 (not the best day): The Moon is in the sign of Gemini and, after 12pm EDT, the Moon quincunxes Saturn-Pluto and finally sextiles Mars Retrograde. The Quincunx warns you not to get involved in problems that are not your own. Events can happen over which you have no control because they do not directly concern you. The Moon sextiles Mars R at the end of the 10th. This only favors a hesitation that allows you to review an action or how you handle anger. Remember, with Mars R, whoever initiates an aggressive action loses. For more information, see Gemini below.
SEPTEMBER 21: The Moon is in Scorpio until 2pm and it favors Pluto-Saturn-Sun. There is a 150 (Quincunx) aspect to Mars R that warns you not to take an action on a problem that is NOT your own. Do not get involved in another’s dilemma or it becomes your problem – and a problem that you cannot resolve. The ending aspect to the Sun favors support from one in authority – at 29 degrees, it is a time to put a wrap on and finalize an endeavor.
SEPTEMBER 23: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it only makes a favorable ending aspect from 9am to 1pm EDT. The Moon sextiles Mercury, favoring balanced decisions whereby you see another’s point of view, since Mercury is in Libra. However, the last aspect is a trine to Mars Retrograde. This only favors a hesitation that allows you to review an action or how you handle anger.
SEPTEMBER 30: The Moon is in the sign of Pisces and it makes favorable aspects until 1pm EDT. It sextiles Pluto and Saturn so it favors organizing and simplifying activities. Saturn has just turned Direct so practical affairs are more favorable for the next few months. If you are starting a business, Saturn must be Direct or you will spend a lot of time re-organizing that business before you can get it truly off the ground.
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.
