Consulting Astrology About When Not to Have a Surgical Operation
"He who practices medicine without the benefit of the movement of the stars and planets is a fool". -Hippocrates
Known as 'The Founder of Medicine', Hippocrates was regarded as the greatest physician of his time. (460 BC)
He noted there were individual differences in the severity of disease symptoms, and that some individuals were able to cope with their diseases and illnesses better than others.
"Touch not with iron that part of the body ruled by the sign the Moon is transitting", -Hippocrates
His observation states that one should not perform a surgical procedure with a knife (iron) on any part of the body which is ruled by the astrological sign in which the Moon is moving through at the time.
For example: When the Moon is in Taurus (ruler of the neck and throat), one should not perfom a toncillectomy. If the Moon is in Capricorn (teeth) or Aries (head), one should avoid dental procedures, or any surgery related to the head. If the Moon was passing through Scorpio (reprodutctive organs), one should never have a hysterectomy or prostate operation.
According to Hippocrates, this would be explain why common surgeries can be fatal; or at the very least cause unusually slow healings or painful recuperations, as well as resulting in complications, like infections.
Why the Moon?
The Moon has the power to move the tides of every ocean and body of water on Earth. The Moon also controls the timing of the opening and closing of oysters, as well as the monthly menstrual cycles of women (the Moon takes approximately 28 days to orbit the Earth, which is no coincidence). The Human body is made up of 70% water, and so the Moon also affects our bodies, as well as our emotions.
Medical technology and procedures are crucial; but surgery is still an unnatural process which interrupts the body's natural tidal flow, by opening it up and exposing it to air.
Therefore, if the part of the body being operated on happens to be an organ ruled by the sign the Moon is passing through, it will be highly sensitive and susceptible.
To find out what astrological sign the Moon is in, you can look in an Ephemeris or a Farmer's Almanc.
The Moon will stay in an astrological sign for about 2 1/2 days.
Consulting an astrologer or researching your own planetary birth chart is beneficial for guiding your health. It is like having a map of your life, indicating your susceptibility to a particular disease or accident, the organs composing any weak links in your body's chain reactions, and your emotional attitudes that are causing a particular part of your body to attract an accident or infection; but most importantly, the timing of illness or possible accident, indicating when you would be the most vulnerable.
*Please note: The phase of the Moon, as well as its current Zodiac sign, also contributes to the results we achieve through surgery. The Full Moon, for example, is the most inopportune time to have a surgery. Our body's fluids are the highest during a Full Moon, so we will have a greater chance of swelling, hemorrhaging, and other adverse effects. Try to avoid scheduling a surgery 5 days before or after the Full Moon. The New Moon, however, is the best time to have an operation. The body's fluid levels are the lowest, and there is less of a chance of swelling or complications.
Helpful Tips For Planning Surgery:
- Try to plan an operation when the moon is transitting through a FIXED sign (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Aquarius). The surgeon's hands should be steady, and no further complications should arise.
- Avoid surgeries during a Mars retrograde or a Mercury retrograde. Mars is the planet that rules surgeons, so when it goes retrograde, the surgeon may not be at their steadiest or performing their best. A heavy loss of blood can occur during a Mars retrograde. Mercury is the planet of communication, so when it goes retrograde, it can mean confusion, miscommunication, mistakes, and mix-ups.
- Re-schedule an appointment if it falls on a Moon's void-of-course day. (I know this one from personal experience.) The Moon is void-of-course when it has left one sign and has yet to enter another. It is NOT a day for action; nothing will happen. You will end up having to go back and re-do it, something will end up getting in the way, or at the very least- nothing will come of it; no result. If you start a project during this time, it may not succeed or ever develop. The Moon needs to be in a sign in order for action to take place; no sign means no action.
