The Moon's Healing Powers

Not all of the Moon's effects on health are considered negative. Some suspect that the flow of blood responds to the gravitational tug of the Moon.

Believers in the power of the Moon consider dental care and elective surgery unwise around the times of the full Moon because of the risk of increased bleeding. (Civil War doctors noted greater blood flow during a flood tide.)

Do you get the blues on Mondays? Maybe you're engaging in the wrong activities. Literally, the "Moon's day," Monday in legend and lore is auspicious for peace and happiness, raising spirits of the dead, and other activities. So if it's Monday, shoot for the Moon!

The best signs for surgery

By Barbara Ford on January 8

The best signs for surgery and healing are in the knees. You can also do the legs, and feet, but I prefer not to do it on the last day of the feet, as it moves to the head next.

Use your almanac calendar and see what signs are represented on which days (it will be in the next to the last column) ...pick those days for your surgeries. The knees are Capricorn, the legs are aquarius, and the feet are Pisces. They are all three grouped together, so normally, you can find at least one of those days to have your surgery.

The worst signs are in the head, neck and heart...that is where you will see more bleeding and slower healing.

I have seen many proofs of this information, both personally, and from others.
