I have heard that the best time to wean a baby from the bottle is when the sign is in the legs. Is this true?

I too have potty trained my children by the signs. I just happened to look this up the other day for someone. January 13th is the first day in January that the sign is in the legs. That should be the day to start potty training on.

Leg thing?

I'm not new to astrology, but I'll admit that I have never heard of "in the legs". Can anyone elaborate? I'm trying to potty train my 2 yr old boy. He being a Gemini, well, his interest is on his terms. A full moon is approaching soon. When should I focus on this rite of passage?
Thank You,
Stacey :)

Perhaps I can help clarify things...different Moon signs correspond to different parts of the body. An example would be when the Moon is in Pisces, it's "sign" is "in the feet." You can look up which sign corresponds to which body part in the almanac itself or just do an internet search.

Ideally, you would want to consult both the Moon's placement as it corresponds to the body, and also its cycle. A waning Moon, (receeding...getting smaller)would be the ideal. Thus the sign Pisces during a waning Moon would be the very best of all for weaning. As we are currently in the second half of the year, the Moon sign Pisces is currently occurring during the waxing (getting bigger) Moon.
Just check this sight under "Best Days" for September. The dates for optimal weaning are listed!
Hope this helps!

Repotty training

My 32 month old daughter was potty trained and on March 18, 2011, her grandmother passed away, and it took a real toll on her. She is a Cancer baby and I would like to know when to try to repotty train her. What is meant by the signs of the legs and what do you look for. Thank you for any and all help. God Bless you all that post to this.

weaning from the bottle

You missed it for June (21 and 26). But you can still catch July 18 and 23rd.
I put my 20 mo old to bed without bottle tonight and he cried for about an hour....so miserable. I didnt want to try to wait a whole month.
I signed up just to answer this question as I searched a million sites to find the answer and ultimatley, it was right here on almanac.com.....hope this saves someone else the frustration.

stop smoking

My grandmother told me in the almanac they show a picture of the human body in every month in the almanac. When your at the beginning of the month or days before a new month starts look at the picture of the human body of the month you want to stop an addition from smoking, potty training or weaning from the bottle anytime you are trying to purdge your body from a habit look for the days in the knees. These are the dates your body is trying to purge your system of a habit. Broke both my childten from bottle to potty training. Now I want to stop smoking. Does anyone have tje days in the kners for June 2014? Please & Thank you. Penny

signs in the feet.

You should always wait til the signs in the feet. It only takes 2-3 days that way. It's what I have always been told. In the legs or ankles would work just takes longer.


My baby will be 2 the 20th of this month. When is the sign in the knees?

Weaning/pooty training

If I am not mistaken my Grandmother weaned and potty trained both my kids when the moon was in the knees. This was also done before they were a year old. Also had them eating solid food just as soon as they got teeth.


what exactly does it mean to go by the sign?
