The transiting Moon in medical astrology

For centuries, astrologers have understood and worked with the relationship between the Zodiac signs and certain parts of the body.

Just a few hundred years ago, Western physicians considered astrology to be essential to the practice of medicine.

They knew that the WHEN is almost as important as the WHAT.

We follow the Moon in medical astrology because it is an accurate, repeating barometer of emotions, habits, and physiological patterns that impact health and wellbeing. The phases of the Moon have an effect on the tides. Similarly, the Moon’s movement through the signs draws physiological activity, fluid, and blood flow to different areas of the body.
