Best time to have operations/surgery based on astrology


Planets and Medical Operations aks Surgery based on Astrology

The positions of the planets and luminaries often determine the best and worst times for a person to pick a date for surgery based on Astrology. Following are guidelines for planning operations astrologically;

Best time to have operations/surgery based on astrology
  1. Plan an operation five days before or after new moon day, as the fluid levels will be at its ebb, and as a result there is a less chance for swelling
  2. Do not have an operation/surgery five days before or after full moon day, as the bodily fluids at this time will be at their highest, and cause swelling, hemorrhage or septic.
  3. A day where moon is Void Of Course (VOC) is not good for surgery, as there is a chance that operation might not be done successfully or may result in additional operation
  4. Avoid operation on part of the body ruled by sign on which sun or moon is transiting.
  5. Avoid operation/surgery when moon is in mutable sign such as Virgo, Pisces, gemini and Sagittarius.
  6. Have surgery or operation when moon is situated in fixed sign such as Taurus, Leo, Aquarius or Scorpio. with such placement, the surgery will go smoothly and effectively. the surgeon’s hand will also be stable
  7. Avoid surgery when transiting moon is combust or within 17 degree of natal sun, moon or mars.
  8. Avoid surgery when transiting moon is square or opposite or in conjunct with natal or transiting sun or mars or Saturn. Mars especially can cause loss of blood and inflammation. while saturn can produce new complications.
  9. The surgery will go smooth if moon is in sextile or trine with natal or progressed or transiting Venus or mars or Jupiter.
  10. The operation should not be done when Mars or Mercury is retrogade. Mercury retrogade can cause confusions to the surgeon, and Mars retrogade is not fruitful to surgery or handling of surgical instruments.

The date could be from end of october till middle of november 2018, which date might be the best? Does my natal chart play any further role or the chart of my surgeon?

  5. When Venus in going direct is it ok to have cosmetic surgery? I know they advise not when its retrograde but now its almost direct…HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOOON. THANK YOU

    • Cosmetic surgery should not be considered when Venus is retrograde or combust. It can be considered when Venus is direct. As Venus becomes direct on 19th November 2018. Any date after 19th can be considered for this purpose.


  6. I am not sure if my reply went through so I am sending it again just in case…I am sorry. I wanted to ask if during Venus going direct in a few days untill Dec. 17, would cosmetic surgery be advisable…I understand it is not during venus retro…I thank you soooo much ..hope to hear from you soon. My appointment is Nov 27. Joyce

    • Venus is retrograde till 19th November 2018. As you have the cosmetic surgery on November 27, 2018. The date is after Venus becomes direct and auspicious for getting good results.
