DOG SURGERY and the FULL MOON
October 27, 2012 § 2 Comments
Monday 10/29/12 will be a FULL MOON. Full Moons are the time to avoid surgery because there is more swelling. Like the sap in tress and tides in the ocean, liquids swell up during the days before, of, and after a full Moon.
Our family dog Nani Loa is an old gal. She was originally scheduled to have 3 teeth pulled yesterday on Friday 10/26. But that date was too close to the full Moon on Monday 10/29. My concern was that Nani’s mouth would swell up over this weekend, and then finally start to drain and heal on Wednesday after Monday’s full Moon. She would probably be better by the weekend.
With lunar cycles in mind, my family was able to reschedule Nani a week sooner on Saturday 10/20. This date was doubly fortunate because the Moon was in Capricorn. Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn whose realm in medical astrology is skin, teeth, and bones.
Nani’s surgery was very successful. She rested on the following Sunday and was fine by Monday — more than one week before the full Moon on 10/29. Nani healed in 2 days, instead of one week, because her operation was planned according to lunar cycles.
Even luckier would be to schedule Nani’s surgery after the full Moon. The waning Moon is better for removing things from the body like teeth or tumors. The waxing Moon (building to full) is better for adding things to the body like a new heart valve or eye lense. But Nani’s teeth had to go sooner than later so waiting was not an option.
Next time you or anyone you know — be it human or animal — is planning surgery of any kind, keep in mind the influence of lunar cycles. If you have any choice about it, schedule close to the new Moon and avoid scheduling close to the full Moon. Good luck!
