Medical Astrology Astrological diagnoses and other health issues are discussed here. Given that there are so many outer and inner influences on one's health (alimentation, sports, medication, past medical antecedents, state of mind, etc.), an astrological diagnosis is only one of many things to consider when determining your healthiness.

Unhappy Breast augmentation surgery during Mercury retrograde - please advise!

Hello,
I have my breast augmentation surgery scheduled in 10 days (2/26/13). I've just learned that Mercury goes retrograde on 2/23 and that it was not wise to have any surgery during that period. I'm freaking out and thinking about rescheduling my surgery to 2/21. Is that better? Or should I keep 2/26 date?
Some astrologers say that not all days during Mercury retrograde are equally bad and that a lot depends on other planetary aspects. What are your thoughts?
THANK YOU!

Mostly because of the Moon's situation I would choose the 2/21 date in preference to the 2/26 date (and by doing so you would also get a direct Mercury, rather than an rx Mercury-in either chart, though, Mercury is detrimented in Pisces; for me, in this electional matter, I am more focused on the Moon than upon Mercury, and I consider the Moon superior in the 2/21 chart, over the Moon in the 2/26 chart)

Re: Breast augmentation surgery during Mercury retrograde - please advise!

Here is the procedure you use to select a time for an operation:


Rules for Operations, as taken from the Encyclopaedia of Medical Astrology, by H.L. Cornell, M.D.

Statistics show that operations are more successfully performed when the Moon is increasing in light, between the New & Full Moon, and heal more quickly, and are less liable to complications than when the Moon is past the full and decreasing. Note the following Rules -

(1) Operate on the increase of the Moon if possible.

(2) Do not operate at the exact time of the Full Moon, as the fluids are running high at this time.

(3) Never operate when the Moon is in the same sign as at birth.

Re: Breast augmentation surgery during Mercury retrograde - please advise!

Additionally, vfor any electional chart this is from John Samoza. he has given me permission to share it with anyone:


When you start things rolling as per the electional chart, there should not be any of the following, if it is possible to eliminate them.

1. No planetary change until the Moon goes VOC. Something will change their mind or whatever. EX: See Aug 1, '96 - Mercury changing signs into Virgo while the Moon is still in Pisces.

2. Horary Moon should not be VOC unless you want it to be there. Nothing will come of it, if that is what you want. See Aug 2, '96 at 12:51pm EDT.

3. No planetary eclipses or occultations. See Aug 16, '96 at 2:07pm EDT, occultation with Mercury.

4. No Part of Fortune (POF) in the 8th house or the 12th house unless the matter relates to an 8th or 12th house issue. So if you are opening up an undertaker's biz the POF in the 8th would be good. If you are opening up a hospital the POF in the 12th would be good.

5. No POF in the second or third decanate of Cancer unless it is a related matter. The second decanate of Cancer is Scorpio and the third decanate of Cancer is Pisces.

6. No POF in Scorpio or Pisces unless it is a related matter.

7. Unlike natal, a past aspect in Horary still in orb is not as relevant as an applying aspect. So if you get married AFTER a Moon square to a malefic, that's fine. The aspect is past. Set up the chart accordingly but see note below.

8. Try not to have the Moon in Scorpio or Capricorn, its fall and detriment unless you want it there. Moon in Taurus is good because of it exaltation. But be careful here because there are some degree points that are very negative. If you want things to go slowly, Moon in Capricorn will do it.

9. Try not to have the Moon in a common sign and cadent house. (Cadent Houses 3/6/9/12. Common Signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) So a Moon in the 3rd house in the sign of Pisces is considered Common and Cadent. Things will not work out as you planned. Unless you want it there.

10. Do not mix Natal rules with Horary rules but remember you Natal rules for reference.

11. Do not have any planet taking a station either way until the Moon goes VOC. Someone will change their mind. See August 10, '96 Pluto SD 8:36am EDT.

12. Do not have the planet that rules the event retrograde. So if you are signing a contract for a house do not have Mercury retrograde. (Usually you should never have Mercury retrograde, but there are times when it is beneficial.) If you are getting married do not have Venus retrograde, etc.


Success tips, if it is possible to have it on the chart

A. have the ruler of the 1st house cusp sitting in the 10th house, (So if Leo is rising, have the Sun in the 10th)

B. or the ruler of the 10th house cusp in the 1st house, (So if Leo is on the MC, have the Sun in the 1st)

C. or the Moon in the 10th house,

D. or the Moon doing a good aspect to the ruler of the 10th house cusp, (trines, sextiles, conjunctions)

E. or a good aspect between the rulers of the 1st house cusp and the 10th house cusp,

F. or the same ruler for the 1st house cusp and the 10th house cusp SIGNS, (Usually you can do this with Gemini and Virgo, both ruled by Mercury. Also with Pisces and Sagittarius both ruled by Jupiter. For example - Gemini would be on the AC and Virgo would be on the MC.)

G. Try to have the POF in the house of where you are concentrating. So if you want to start an Astrology biz have the POF in the 11H and possibly in the sign of Aquarius and possibly getting a positive aspect from the Horary Moon.

H. The POF in the second house or the 10th is also good for any new business. To borrow money the POF in the 8th is good, even the POF in Scorpio.


The Moon takes 2 1/2 days to complete a sign. Anything adversely happening during that time could affect the chart. Run the chart for after the Moon has passed the negative period. Please remember that in Hoaray the Moon is the Co-Ruler of everything.

(NOTE - Not all negatives effect the chart. The reason being some negatives do not connect with the area you are hoping to be successful at. I have also seen Astrologers throw a negative in the 12th house or have it intercepted. So an intercepted Mars getting a square from the Moon may have no effect in the chart. There is a lot of theory on in this area.)

And lastly, do not continue reading the aspects of the Horary Moon after it has gone Void of Course since it has completed its job. This differs from natal Astrology.

As far as at starting time, the late Ivy Goldstein-Jacobson states in her out of print book "Simplified Horary Astrology", page 266, to first start with your natal Ascendent sign and degree. Rotate the Electional chart if necessary if the time is unsatisfactory. (This is where the fun time starts, locating a good time.)

To save time get a popup program like the one Astrolabe sells (Astrologer's Companion). Matrix has one in their Blue Star program. The chart display changes quickly on the screen when you change the time. There are others.

You have more than enough to keep you busy. Remember, these are only a few of the rules. If you want an example of a good date for a marriage look back on December 24, 1995. (Don't worry if you did not get married on a good date and time. If your marriage is working fine it does not make a difference. There are people we have met who are very lucky in this lifetime. An electional chart would probably be useless for them.)

Good luck in doing electional work and much success in your Horary studies.
