Crisis Lunations for 2013
CRISIS LUNATIONS FOR 2013:
New Moons: January 11 and November 3 (2 days away from exact), December 3 and January 1 (2014)
Full Moons: April 25, May 25, June 23, Jul 22 and August 21
Full Moon: The Full Moon of July 3 2012 was 2 days away from perigee. It seemed like the worst Crises Lunation to me with the horrible storm, loss of power and the loss of my beautiful Yard Tractor when a huge tree fell on it, crushing all but the headlights
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 US invaded Iraq on a Crisis Full Moon in March 2003.
Crisis Lunations occur in a series, lasting about 4 or 5 months. 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.
At the time of the April 17 2007 CNM, there was a transiting Kite Pattern. You can e-mail me for a copy of this chart. Of course, we all know that the VT Shooting occurred at this time. I have found that the Kite Pattern is associated with disasters. There were many crises occurring in the news at this time, including an accidental shooting in the White House, NASA shootings, Wal-Mart shooting, “ghost ship” found with crew missing and the Blue Angel Crash. This current Kite is particularly long lasting as the Sun was replaced by Mercury in Aries. There was also a triple Near Earth Fly-By (very close asteroid passing) from April 14-17….these act very much like a Crises Lunation.
During the eclipse CFM near January 1, there was many crises with terrorist activities, murder and airport crises (man went through exit without going through security).
ADDENDUM: 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 tha 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. Subsequently, I saw that another astrologer, Richard Nolle, used the Perigee New Moon…and he is absolutely correct. These work the same.
ADDENDUM: Early August 2010 was a doozy! People were over-reacting like crazy. One woman over-reacted to an article I sent out on my Tidbits List. She over-reacted to what she preceived as an attack on her Sun Sign.
Then, when I inquired about the passing of a neighbor who had a bee hive, the daughter theatened legal action if I touched her father’s bee hive! I did not want her hive — I just wanted to know if her dad was my father’s friend. I still do not know.
Mars is in Libra at this time and people get their feathers ruffled too easily and the CNM only adds to this.
ADDENDUM 2011: On September 22, I purchased a 42 inch riding mower. I picked a day with all favorable aspects from the Moon — however, I paid little attention to the CRISES LUNATION. Instead of a 42 inch mower, they delivered a 46 inch more but installed a 42 inch mulching blade. It does not cut properly, the grass bins clogged and the service department said it would take 3 weeks for a repairman to show up!!!! Now I have to raise hell at Sears and demand immediate results. I confess that I have very bad lawn mower karma. I feel that I am cursed!
