READINGS: I am suspended giving readings through the summer. When I start again, I will let you know here. The summer picnic is also canceled. There are no good weekends astrologically and I am too stressed to organize a picnic.

CRISIS LUNATIONS 2019:

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.

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.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for AUGUST 2019 – All times are ET.

AUGUST 1: The Moon is in the sign of Leo ending with a conjunction with Mars by 4:30pm EDT but a parallel to Mars at 2:40am EDT on the 2nd. This period is only favorable for taking action, initiating a project or some physical or promotional activity since Mars is an action planet. Leo prefers situations whereby you are in charge and not taking orders. Keep this in mind. This is also a Crises Lunation Period so some crises could trigger the action.

AUGUST 3: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo from 3pm EDT onward. The Moon trines Pluto and sextiles Mercury so this is an excellent period for mental activity, analyzing materials, negotiating or writing/communicating. Pluto likes to be in control of what is initiated but it also favors support from a group.

AUGUST 8: A BRIEF PERIOD – the Moon will be in the sign of Scorpio from 5:30am to 10:45 am EDT when the Moon in Scorpio trines Mercury in Cancer. This is a favorable time for creative mental activity. Any decision-making will be intuitive, not rational.

AUGUST 9-early 10: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it makes all favorable aspects – except ONE, a square to Neptune. There is actually a Grand Fire Trine during this period when the Moon favors all mentally intuitive activity, inspiration and promotional action. The last aspect occurs around 3:45pm EDT with a trine to Mars. This is an ACTION period. However, there is a square to Neptune so there can be a glitch, denoting some misunderstanding, something overlooked, or someone not being there at a critical time. If you can work through this, the outcome will be successful. If you wish to miss this period, wait until after 2:30am EDT (continuing through 3:45pm EDT).

AUGUST 12: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and there is a slightly favorable period from 8am to 6 pm EDT when the Moon forms parallel and sextile Neptune and ending with a conjunction with Pluto. Pluto makes matters complicated but complications can contribute to success. This period is best served by getting rid of anything old, out-worn and no-longer needed. Make sure your research is complete. Failure occurs when you overlook something important.

AUGUST 20: The Moon is in the sign of Aries and, after 8am EDT, the Moon trines the Sun and Venus at 29 degrees. This is an excellent period for high energy and enthusiastic activities. Any activity that is promotional, inspirational and mentally creative will prove successful. It favors relationships and recreational activities. This is a good period, especially for finalizing and bringing something to fruition.

AUGUST 22: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, from 10am to 5:15pm EDT, the Moon favors Neptune, parallels Uranus and trines Pluto. When the last aspect is a favorable aspect to Pluto, you succeed when you align yourself with a large group. Streamline your project; eliminate non-essentials. Working behind-the-scenes and research can prove helpful.

AUGUST 28: The Moon is in the sign of Leo and, from 8am to 8pm EDT, the Moon trines Jupiter in Leo. This is a favorable period for social activities. This can be a helpful aspect for improving relationships with others.

AUGUST 31: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo when it makes a parallel to the Sun and Venus, ending with a trine to Pluto after 12pm EDT. When the last aspect is a favorable aspect to Pluto, you succeed when you align yourself with a large group. Streamline your project; eliminate non-essentials. Working behind-the-scenes and research can prove helpful.

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.

  • CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): There will be a lot of activity around money this month. Important news comes about money or a child will need money. There is a strong, resourceful female in the picture. She can be very helpful. You will complete a long-term project but it will take a lot out of you – not easy but successful. AUGUST 12: The Moon is in the sign of Capricorn and there is a slightly favorable period from 8am to 6 pm EDT when the Moon forms a parallel and sextile to Neptune and ending with a conjunction with Pluto. Pluto makes matters complicated but complications can contribute to success. This period is best served by getting rid of anything old, out-worn and no-longer needed. Make sure your research is complete. Failure occurs when you overlook something important.
  • AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17): This is a stressful month for you. Do not take everything to heart and “do not sweat the small stuff.” At times, things may seem worse than they really are but the sun is about to shine and any stress will pass from your life. The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius on the afternoon of the 13th through most of the 15th. There is a Full Moon in Aquarius and many oppositions. If you commence anything during this period, it will be fraught with conflict, expenses and resistance from authority.
  • PISCES (February 18-March 19): Now that Mercury is Direct, you will feel a burst of energy. However, this is a better time for cultivating your spiritual and metaphysical talents. Everything is about to change. Having a strong spiritual core will help you to make the correct choices. The Moon is in the sign of Pisces on August 16-17. While this is not a bad time and the ending with Pluto can bring assistance from a group, there will be extra costs, dashed expectations and some disappointments.
  • ARIES (March 19-April 19): Small annoyances crop up this month but do not sweat the small stuff. You will find yourself dealing with one in authority, someone who is rigid and holding to the rules. This type rarely suits an independent Aries but be nice and appear to get along. This month a new idea will present itself and this will fire you up for a new challenge. AUGUST 20: The Moon is in the sign of Aries and, after 8am EDT, the Moon trines the Sun and Venus at 29 degrees. This is an excellent period for high energy and enthusiastic activities. Any activity that is promotional, inspirational and mentally creative will prove successful. It favors relationships and recreational activities. This is a good period, especially for finalizing and bringing something to fruition.
  • TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a transformational month for you. August commences with challenges and enthusiasm but, suddenly, a shocking surprise occurs. You feel that your life is transforming. The old and outmoded is passing away and a new life is about to manifest. This would be exciting for Fire signs but Taurus finds security in its fixed routines. Try to be flexible and go with the flow. AUGUST 22: The Moon is in the sign of Taurus and, from 10am to 5:15pm EDT, the Moon favors Neptune, parallels Uranus and trines Pluto. When the last aspect is a favorable aspect to Pluto, you succeed when you align yourself with a large group. Streamline your project; eliminate non-essentials. Working behind-the-scenes and research can prove helpful.
  • GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might find that August is a good vacation month. It is a time to be child-like (Gemini is good at this – I have 3 planets there myself). In the process of enjoying life, new ideas can inspire you. However, be careful of poor planning, omitting something or leaving something behind. An oversight can be costly. The Moon is in the sign of Gemini late on the 23rd through the 24th. The Moon makes a lot of afflictions to the many planets in Mutable signs. Anything initiated at this time will be fraught with disruptions and unpredictable changes. The last aspect is a sextile to Mercury so that, in the end, you can receive some important information. It is best to pick a different day to initiate.
  • CANCER (June 21-July 22): There is a strong, resourceful man around you but there is a “snake in the grass” who he does not see. This can cause a stressful situation. By month’s end, there can be social gatherings and possibly a re-connection with a childhood friend. The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on August 25-26 and all starts out very well but some unexpected rules and regulations crop up with the opposition to Saturn and ending with an opposition to Pluto, denoting severe complications. Best not to use this date for anything important.
  • LEO (July 23-August 22): It is important to allow your resources to grow this month. The grass is never greener elsewhere so appreciate what you have. You will find yourself dealing with someone in authority – they play by the rules. In some way, you will be affected by weather conditions. Keep this in mind and watch out for a summer cold or allergies. AUGUST 1: The Moon is in the sign of Leo ending with a conjunction with Mars by 4:30pm EDT but a parallel to Mars at 2:40am EDT on the 2nd. This period is only favorable for taking action, initiating a project or some physical or promotional activity since Mars is an action planet. Leo prefers situations whereby you are in charge and not taking orders. Keep this in mind. This is also a Crises Lunation Period so some crises could trigger the action. AUGUST 28: The Moon is in the sign of Leo and, from 8am to 8pm EDT, the Moon trines Jupiter in Leo. This is a favorable period for social activities. This can be a helpful aspect for improving relationships with others.
  • VIRGO (August 23-September 22): August is a good month for making plans for the future, especially travel. You may experience some Virgo anxiety this month but a message will come and you can continue making plans for the future. AUGUST 3: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo from 3pm EDT onward. The Moon trines Pluto and sextiles Mercury so this is an excellent period for mental activity, analyzing materials, negotiating or writing/communicating. Pluto likes to be in control of what is initiated but it also favors support from a group. AUGUST 31: The Moon is in the sign of Virgo when it makes a parallel to the Sun and Venus, ending with a trine to Pluto after 12pm EDT. When the last aspect is a favorable aspect to Pluto, you succeed when you align yourself with a large group. Streamline your project; eliminate non-essentials. Working behind-the-scenes and research can prove helpful.
  • LIBRA (September 23-October 22): This is a month for parties, socializing and taking a vacation with others. However, by month’s end, you may feel sad that summer is over – do not mourn what is gone or passed away but look to the new adventures for the autumn. The Moon is in the sign of Libra later on the 4th and through the 5th. The 4th starts out well but soon there are afflictions to Saturn-Pluto-Mercury, creating crises, disagreements and serious obstacles. Bad day to start anything important or sign any papers.
  • SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): There is a resourceful woman around you – someone who is good with finances – and she can benefit you. You long for something else, something more creative in your life and even an escape. Your life is about to be transformed. Your old order is about to end and a new way about to begin. AUGUST 8: A BRIEF PERIOD – the Moon will be in the sign of Scorpio from 5:30am to 10:45 am EDT when the Moon in Scorpio trines Mercury in Cancer. This is a favorable time for creative mental activity. Any decision-making will be intuitive, not rational.
  • SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): This is a good month for you. There is a resourceful woman around you – a woman who is knowledgeable with money and business. She can benefit you if you will listen to her advice. It is a time to allow your resources to grow – not for spending. Do not judge your success by the standards of others. A new project will present itself by month’s end. AUGUST 9-early 10: The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius and it makes all favorable aspects – except ONE, a square to Neptune. There is actually a Grand Fire Trine during this period when the Moon favors all mentally intuitive activity, inspiration and promotional action. The last aspect occurs around 3:45pm EDT with a trine to Mars. This is an ACTION period. However, there is a square to Neptune so there can be a glitch, denoting some misunderstanding, something overlooked, or someone not being there at a critical time. If you can work through this, the outcome will be successful. If you wish to miss this period, wait until after 2:30am EDT (continuing through 3:45pm EDT).
