When is a excellent time to have surgery? As an astrologer I think that some occasions are far better than other people, although in lots of, or even most, circumstances, it really is not realistic to take into account astrological considerations.
If somebody has acute appendicitis, it would clearly be reckless to seek the advice of an astrologer, simply because the patient could die of a burst appendix whilst the astrologer peruses the planetary positions, attempting to perform out the ideal hour of the ideal day to have the expected operation. The very same can be stated for any emergency process.
One particular must also be cautious about consulting astrologers prior to exploratory procedures, exactly where there is the possibility of obtaining a significant, underlying situation, such as cancer. It does not matter how excellent the positions of the planets at the time of such a process, they will not alter the body’s situation. Most importantly, the sooner a significant illness is found the far better, and one particular cannot hang about waiting for optimal planetary positions.
So when could it be a excellent concept to seek the advice of an astrologer prior to an operation?
Any operation exactly where time is not of the essence. Exactly where there is not a threat of death or deterioration if the operation is delayed. So cosmetic surgery is a prime instance of an location of surgery exactly where astrology can be valuable. Or if there is a chronic situation, that is been going on for years, that surgery could be in a position to assistance.
From a technical point of view, there are lots of guidelines to take into consideration when picking the ideal time for surgery, although in this short report I want to retain it straightforward.
The situation of the Moon is going to be critical. In astrology the Moon represents flux and alter, and profitable surgery is about producing a profitable alter to the physique.
So ideally, at the time of the surgery, the Moon must be creating a favourable aspect to a fortunate planet. This indicates, very actually, that the surgical process has a excellent possibility of moving towards a fortunate outcome.
One particular must also be cautious that surgery does not take spot on a Complete Moon. As we know, the Moon impacts the tides, in a physical, magnetic way, and it ought to certainly also influence the fluids in the physique. There could, at least in theory, be additional bleeding if an operation requires spot at the Complete Moon, and this could have a unfavorable influence on a patient’s recovery prospects.
German astrologer Reinhold Ebertin, when writing about healthcare astrology, recommended that at the time of an operation, the Moon must NOT be in a sign of the Zodiac connected with the aspect of the physique becoming operated on.
This could sound strange, but for the duration of an operation one particular desires stability, and if the Moon is related with a aspect of the physique that is becoming prodded, reduce or manipulated, that could be undesirable news.
So what components of the physique are ruled by the diverse indicators? In basic the indicators go from the head to the feet. The initially sign of the Zodiac, Aries, guidelines the head, so ideally you should not have brain surgery whilst the Moon is in Aries – although in the case of the brain, it will normally be an emergency, or an exploratory process, exactly where use of astrology is inappropriate.
Taurus, the subsequent sign, guidelines the throat and neck. Gemini the lungs. Cancer the breasts and the stomach, Leo the heart and the back, Virgo and Libra the intestines, liver and kidneys, Scorpio the genitals, Sagittarius the thighs, Capricorn the knees, Aquarius the shins and Pisces, the final sign of the Zodiac, the feet.
So do not get your bunions operated on whilst the Moon is in Pisces!
Even though Capricorn’s prime rulership is the knees, it really is normally linked with the skin. Certainly Seventeen Century Astrologer William Lilly related this sign with itching and leprosy. It is probably simply because Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn, and Saturn is about boundaries and limitation – and the skin definitely is the body’s boundary.
Beneath these situations, one particular must keep away from surgery that could have an influence on the skin whilst the Moon is in Capricorn. This could contain minor procedures, such as botox.
