How do Moon transits affect a person?
The Moon is associated with feelings and emotions, it will reveal which area of the zodiac the person is reacting to usually from subconscious habits. Certain parts of the body become a concern. I once knew an Astrologer who did not leave the house in the morning until she checked the Ephemeris to see what the position of the transiting moon was in her Natal chart. This was at a time when we used the Reference textbook and not any online service.
Did you know? The ancient Hippocratic Oath states” A physician cannot safely administer medicine if he is unacquainted with Astrology.”
That means – when the moon is transiting an Astrological sign that rules a part of the body -surgery or any cut into the body should not take place. There are countless examples of people who innocently had some medical procedure done which turned out to have more complications as a result. I am not talking about life saving operations.
I knew a person who broke his femur in his leg and on the day he was scheduled for surgery the transiting moon was in Sagittarius which rules the thigh bone. The surgery ended up having complications and the person developed a life threatening blood clot. Coincidence? I think not.
I heard of another person who had a blood test when the moon was transiting Gemini which rules the upper arms among other areas sustained a huge black and blue mark from the needle.
If the Moon affects our earth so that the water experiences the ebb and flow, then why wouldn’t it affect humans and animals. We are 70 % water. The ancient Astrologers and medicine people lived life around cycles and planetary energies-
The Full Moon brings heightened emotional responses, increases activity in the body. The New Moon is when the body best releases toxins from the body.
