Many people who have an interest in Astrology have heard that there are periods when it is unwise to have surgery. There are times when your odds for successful surgery are better. I want to share these guidelines because I think it is important to know. This refers to ELECTIVE SURGERY ONLY!
- Try to plan surgery five days before or after the New Moon. This is when the bodily fluids are at their lowest flow so there is less chance of swelling.
- Avoid surgery five days before or after the Full Moon. Bodily fluids are at their highest flow and there can be excessive bleeding, seeping from wounds or swelling.
- Avoid surgery when it’s a ‘Void of course” Moon because surgery may not be performed correctly, or complications are possible.
- Avoid surgery on the part of the body ruled by the sign that the Moon or Sun is transitting or moving through. A list of the signs and parts of the body follows.
- Avoid surgery when Mercury or Mars are retrograde as there could be misunderstandings, errors or confusion. Mars rules surgeons and cutting instruments and the surgeon may be unsteady or unable to concentrate very well. Also there could be heavy loss of blood.
There are a few other things to do with the Moon that can be checked for you by an Astrologer, but these are the most important!
