Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
A packed eighth house of planets might bring up a discussion on medical or dental surgery. The reason surgery relates to this area of the chart (eighth house) is because it is considered a house of transformation, where the surgeon or dentist works to fix what is causing you to suffer so that he or she can transform you to better health. With a well-positioned eighth house of planets, as you have now, you seem to have proper insurance to cover the health procedure or enough savings to cover the costs if you will be treated in your doctor’s office. If the procedure is expensive, you would need to call your insurance provider to be sure of the items covered and what (if anything) is not.
If you talk with your doctor this month, you might decide when to set the date. If the medical problem is not urgent and involves skin, bones, teeth, or specifically the knees, I would put off that surgery until after March 30. Also, hold off on having a face-lift (skin) or any treatments or surgery that change the look of your body shape, such as cold sculpting. (If you are considering this, do research first, as some people have had serious problems with this new procedure. Having information is always wise.)
Ideally, it is best not to have Mars in the sign that rules the body part on which you are considering having medical or dental surgery. Mars is touring Capricorn right now which rules all those areas of the body I listed—skin, teeth, bones, and especially the knees. Mars will leave Capricorn, your eighth house, on March 30.
Also, this month, your ruler Mercury will go retrograde from February 16 until March 9, giving you another reason to hold off on making big decisions if you don’t have to in any area of life, including surgery. However, if you are in an emergency, then, by all means, have the surgery.
