…………
►GREATEST ASTROLOGICAL PICNIC IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE (Potluck)
JUNE 25:  The electional dates for this summer are horrible.  I found one day on a Saturday that has favorable aspects to Neptune and Pluto and a parallel to Mercury.  I am going with this date.  If you wish to be a reader, please contact me.

APRIL DATES FOR PSYCHIC & MULTI-DIMENSIONAL PHENOMENA:

 

MARCH 31-APRIL 3:  First, watch for the 2 hours when Orion’s Belt is overhead.  This means that the Earth (where you are) is blocking the noise from the Galactic Center.

This is a powerful period as T Jupiter is septile T Uranus, ending with T Mars septile Chiron.  I have an article on the Septile Clusters on my website.  It needs updating but it has a good article on this subject.

APRIL 16-19:  Strong Mercury septiles trigger mental flashes and inspiration and creativity from higher sources.

CRISIS LUNATIONS for 2022:
CRISES NEW MOONS:  January 2, February 1, December 23
CRISES FULL MOONS:  April 16, May 16, June 14, July 13, August 12

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 is very ill and he may not make it, and the non-profit that runs my farm has taken all of the joy out of farming for me.  They say that the lease will be to protect me when it is only to give them more power and control over me.  Yes, I have a good lawyer.  The positive – I will be free from worrying about the gardens.

The Crises New Moon occurred on my birthday, August 30, 2019.  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.  The major change was in my home – major renovations and Bill moved in with me. 

At the March 2020 CFM, I had a terrible panic attack at night – I thought I was going to have a heart attack.  In August and September, with the CNMs, there were so many plumbing problems.  My pipes are mostly from the 1930s so they are in bad shape.  For what it is worth, the Transiting NN was crossing my natal Mars in Gemini.  I got hit a lot because, during the November CNM, my old desktop started to grind and make a lot of noise.  Just as I was about to take it to Ellicott City to a repair shop, my lawyer came by and told me about a mutual friend a couple of blocks away and he fixed it for $20!!!  It just needed cleaning and oiling.

GOOD DATES/PERIODS for APRIL 2022 – All times are ET

APRIL 14:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and there is a very brief period from 8am to 2 pm EDT when the Moon trines Pluto.  Earlier, the Moon trines Uranus in Taurus, making a wide Grand Earth Trine.  There are several oppositions leading up to this favorable period.  Any problems can be resolved during this brief period by eliminating any complications, simplifying and purging the extraneous.  I prefer that you work alone while the Moon is in Virgo in order to avoid the oppositions from others.

APRIL 18:  The Moon is in Scorpio from 12pm to 7:50pm EDT.  While some astrologers consider Scorpio to be a bad sign for the Moon, the Moon is always strong in a Water sign so take this into consideration.  The Moon trines Neptune-Jupiter ending with a sextile to Pluto.  All creative and intuitive projects are favored, especially if you end the matter by 1) aligning yourself with a supportive group and 2) fixing and eliminating anything that seems complicated.

APRIL 21-22:  The Moon is in Capricorn and it ONLY makes favorable aspects – very unusual.   Seven planets are well aspected until 11:52 PM EDT when the Moon crosses Pluto.  This can be interpreted as a favorable aspect if you eliminate all that is worn out and useless in order to streamline your project.  Pluto loves efficiency yet success can come through some type of complication.

APRIL 25-26 (through 9am EDT on the 27th):  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces.  It can be said that it makes all favorable aspects ending with a favorable aspect to the Mercury-Pluto conjunction.  Initially, the Moon crosses Venus and Mars in Pisces so that this period favors relationships.  Then, it crosses Jupiter-Neptune favoring creative endeavors and following your Inner Voice in decision-making.  The final Mercury-Pluto aspect favors research, investigations and drawing an important matter to a successful conclusion, often through streamlining.

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):   Be careful of what you say or the action you take on impulse.  This can come back to haunt you later on.  You will finish up important tasks but it will take a lot of energy on your part.  A strong-willed woman can set you strait and help eliminate the extraneous.  Listen to what she has to say.

            APRIL 21-22:  The Moon is in Capricorn and it ONLY makes favorable aspects – very unusual.   Seven planets are well aspected until 11:52 PM EDT when the Moon crosses Pluto.  This can be interpreted as a favorable aspect if you eliminate all that is worn out and useless in order to streamline your project.  Pluto loves efficiency yet success can come through some type of complication.

* AQUARIUS (January 20-February 17):  The month may not start out well but there is “light at the end of the tunnel.”  You will feel on top of your work and projects, not over-whelmed at all.  By month’s end, you need to devote your time to spiritual inspiration.  There is a Spirit Guide waiting for your life to calm down so that you will listen.

            The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius on April 23-24.  The aspects seem frustrating and fraught with anxiety.  A bad decision can plague any matter initiated at this time.  The Moon ends with an affliction to the Mercury-Saturn square.  Commitments will make you feel caught between a rock and a hard place!  Pick another date!

* PISCES (February 18-March 19):  Procrastinating over work that needs to be done will only make it more burdensome by month’s end.  Yet, you seem to be more interested in spiritual goals and this is a good thing but do take care of practical matters.  Avoidance seems to be a more positive word but it still will not make problems go away.

            APRIL 25-26 (through 9am EDT on the 27th):  The Moon is in the sign of Pisces.  It can be said that it makes all favorable aspects ending with a favorable aspect to the Mercury-Pluto conjunction.  Initially, the Moon crosses Venus and Mars in Pisces so that this period favors relationships.  Then, it crosses Jupiter-Neptune favoring creative endeavors and following your Inner Voice in decision-making.  The final Mercury-Pluto aspect favors research, investigations and drawing an important matter to a successful conclusion, often through streamlining.

*  ARIES (March 19-April 19):  It is important for you to treat yourself royally this month.  Take time to relax and enjoy your life.  If there is a possibility for travel or to visit a warmer climate — give yourself this escape.  Bring out your inner child in April but, at month’s end, do not allow your Aries impulsiveness to say or do something that offends others – this will come back to haunt you later on.

The Moon is in the sign of Aries on April 1 and, again, matters seem to run smoothly until a complication arises and the matter comes to an end.
The Moon is in the sign of Aries late on the 27th through early on the 29th.  All seems to run very smoothly.  This can be a romantic or creative time – until the 29th when Pluto changes direction, something important gets dropped or someone drops out and matters will become quite complicated.

* TAURUS (April 20-May 20):   Do not come across as rigid and unyielding.  You will seem unapproachable by others and this is not something that you want to happen.  There is a woman around you who has suffered losses.  She appears jealous and not friendly.  Be understanding.  By month’s end, you will have time to party with your friends.  There is much joy in the camaraderie.
The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on April 3-4 but matters initiated now do not run smoothly.  Uranus-Mars-Saturn generate upsets, an unexpected turn of events and a lot of red tape and frustration.  If initiating at this time, the matter could prove costly and cooperation is non-existent.
The Moon is in the sign of Taurus on April 30-May 1.  The Moon starts out with a Solar Eclipse at 10 Taurus, important if you have a planet at this degree.  Solar eclipses, if conjunct the Sun, give energy and recognition.  There is a brief period with all favorable aspects from May 1 at 8pm EDT to May 2 at 6am EDT.  This is a lucky period with positive and supportive relationships.

* GEMINI (May 21-June 20):   There is someone around who appears emotionally aloof.  This does not mean that he is unfeeling but rather detached from them.  This is an excellent month for spiritual work and spiritual connections.  Someone may come into your life, inspired by your Spirit Guide.  Caution against poor planning.  This can cause much stress in the end because you were just not thinking.

            The Moon is in the sign of Gemini on April 5-6.  The last aspect is a trine to Mars in Aquarius so action can have a favorable outcome.  The difficult aspects are to Jupiter-Neptune so that exaggerated expectations, misinformation and someone not being there for you as expected can cause disappointment.

* CANCER (June 21-July 22):   You may connect with an important woman in business who can benefit you in some way – she may like cats so cat compliments will be helpful.  You will find yourself finishing up an important work project.  By month’s end, this is a time to party with your friends.  There is much joy in the camaraderie.

            The Moon is in the sign of Cancer on April 7-9 when it afflicts other planets in Cardinal signs.  If initiating at this time, the activity will be fraught with crises, mental stress and complications.

* LEO (July 23-August 22):  Family gatherings, especially with affluent people or family members, will prove very helpful this month.  There will be some type of awakening, awakening of talents that have been buried deep within.  This will give you much energy and enthusiasm for accomplishing great things in your life.

            The Moon is in the sign of Leo on April 10-11 but there are too many disruptions, frustrations and angry conflicts for this to be a time to initiating anything of importance.

* VIRGO (August 23-September 22):   Initially, you may feel stuck in a rigid pattern from which you feel that you cannot move but everything is about to change.  You will feel inspired by a new idea.  It may be the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces that facilitates the changes.  The dice have been cast and everything will change in your life.

            APRIL 14:  The Moon is in the sign of Virgo and there is a very brief period from 8am to 2 pm EDT when the Moon trines Pluto.  Earlier, the Moon trines Uranus in Taurus, making a wide Grand Earth Trine.  There are several oppositions leading up to this favorable period.  Any problems can be resolved during this brief period by eliminating any complications, simplifying and purging the extraneous.  I prefer that you work alone while the Moon is in Virgo in order to avoid the oppositions from others.

* LIBRA (September 23-October 22):    This is an important month to gain a new perspective upon your life and circumstances.  Travel or any change of venue will help with this, even new relationship connections.  This is an important time to think about those who are less fortunate than yourself.  World events come to mind.  Act out of charity, even just giving your time to others.  Exercise caution in word or action — these may come back to haunt you.

            The Moon is in the sign of Libra on April 14-16.  Matters start out well but someone drops out or leaves.  The final aspects are a Full Moon (opposition to the Sun) and a square to Pluto.  There can be an opposition by one in authority and complications will cause the matter to end.

* SCORPIO (October 23-November 21):  Your work will be highlighted this month and in a positive way.  You will find yourself finishing up a professional project.  You will be very busy but it will not be difficult – the interaction with others will be enjoyable.  There will be a powerful man in business but he has a deceptive person around him.  Be aware.

            APRIL 18:  The Moon is in Scorpio on April 18 and it is well aspected from 12pm to 7:50pm EDT.  While some astrologers consider Scorpio to be a bad sign for the Moon, the Moon is always strong in a Water sign so take this into consideration.  The Moon trines Neptune-Jupiter ending with a sextile to Pluto.  All creative and intuitive projects are favored, especially if you end the matter by 1) aligning yourself with a supportive group and 2) fixing and eliminating anything that seems complicated.

* SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21):   The April activity will be around money – making money, giving money, paying bills and finishing up financial projects.   By month’s end, you will benefit from a holistic health practitioner.  Not that there are health problems but your body can benefit from a massage, lymph drainage, reflexology etc.
The Moon is in the sign of Sagittarius on April 19-20 but, unfortunately, this is not a good period as the Moon squares Mars-Venus-Neptune-Jupiter.  Anything initiated, even a shopping trip, will prove costly.
