A friend suggested I find the best time according to the Almanac for Knee Replacement, which I am about to schedule this summer (July or August). I see that Capricorn affects the knees. How do I determine when to schedule surgery? I am new here! Thank you.

First, always consult your

First, always consult your physician when planning surgery.
For surgery dates, look towards the back of The 2013 Old Farmer's Almanac for the "Man of Signs" with an explanation of the Moon's signs associated with body parts. Capricorn is indeed the knees. Then, you need to look at the "Moon's Place in the Astrological Zodiac" chart to find the dates when the Moon has passed into the signs below the body part on which you are going to have surgery. The farther away the Moon sign is from the sign associated with the afflicted body part (Capricorn), the better.
As well as finding this chart in our book, you can also find a digital version online at www.almanac.com/store
We appreciate your interest in The Old Farmer's Almanac and our web site.
