The Moon moves fast, spends about 2 days in each sign, it navigates the entire zodiac in 27.33 days.
According to Ye Olde Farmer’s Almanac tradition, here is how to set the best times for surgery dates.
First look to the Man of the Signs drawing above to see which sign rules which part of the human body.
Then look to the see what sign the Moon falls in.
Choose a time when the moon is in the sign furthest away from the area you will be having surgery on.
For instance if having surgery on the head or face, schedule the appointment when the moon is in Pisces for best results.
Also watch for full moons and avoid surgery at these times as the moon rules the ocean tides and water, and human blood is 80 % water. The blood flows more freely and is slower to clot during full moons. Some also give 3 days on either side of the full moon as a time to avoid surgery because of the increase of blood flow.
During the Last Quarter and New Moon times, blood flow is more sluggish and is better for healing and resting.
Keep in mind, I am not a medical doctor, this is Farmer’s Almanac lore and wisdom, not medical advice.
Ever wonder why during dark moons you only feel like being quiet and lounging with a book ?
Now you know ~ your blood flow is slightly reduced, meaning less oxygen throughout the blood stream, it is a time for respite.
For increase of growth, cut between the New and Full Moon.
For thicker hair, cut on the Full Moon. (My boss swears by this !)
To decrease growth, Full to New Moon (plucking, shaving, dyeing)
