Working better with the moon

New Moon Remedies
Ipecac seems suited to the new moon. I've given them 1m for 3 days now with no reaction.This is the time they usually vomit from worm fever or develop pleurisy or have gastric/amoebic/parasitic influx. They usually eat less around new (and full moon occasionally) probably trying to starve put the parasites.

I was afraid when Ipecac petered out that I wouldn't find the next remedy, but Aconite kicked in for a couple of days and Echinacea, which had never triggered for me before ever, fits in after new moon.

This is a time of the moon cycle that I've often felt helpless as I watch new inflammations take root - Aconite is so correct I don't know why I didn't think of it before. Echinacea follows it naturally being a blood purifier with some of the same anxiety.

Ipecac is the veg equivalent of Cuprum.

New Moon days 28-29:
Kenchu is always troubled by the New Moon time when his post-distemper symptoms seem accentuated. I was amazed at how all his chakras, especially his root chakra, sucked up the energy of Carduus Mar 10m.

Here are some of the characteristics that I think it helps:
- liver, spleen and gall bladder or portal congestion that you can spot in dogs when they itch at their solar plexus or on their sternums.
- dropsy with liver cirrhosis (hard, trasverse swelling) especially after surviving gastric forms of distemper (influenza and measles in humans).
- wrinkling of skin and blueness (or black skin)
- constipation with grey clayey or white hard stool or bright yellow pappy. Anything but brown.
- pain in hip-joint with difficulty rising.
- asthmatic respiration with a drippy nose and congestion.

Many of the remedies in homeopathy fit this description. I only narrowed it down because I knew from the last few moon cycles that Compositae remedies especially suit the new moon to first quarter moon period.


Full Moon Remedies
Starting with Phytolacca, then Mag Carb, then acids, then argent nit, aurum mur, then Mag Mur, again back to plant remedies like Echinacea and Tarax, chamomilla,finally reaching Merc sol. I may have put in some groundwork.

Leguminosae for Jan Full Moon
They're responding to Baptista, which I've tried by chance since I'm worried that the full moon approaches. And spring is around the corner! The group contains Indigo, Baptista, Physostigma, Melilotus, Copaiva and Lathyrus.

This month Cuprum was drawn around and after the full moon. Nat Mur and Nat Phos as well, but Mag Mur remains the principal remedy lowering in potency today. Two days after the full moon, the dogs have started drawing plant remedies - Sabina first, then Rhododendron, now Echinacea.

Vegetable Analogues work better
Ipecac instead of Cuprum.
Pulsatilla is the veg equivalent of Argent nit according to Clarke. Kali m. is Puls's chemical analogue. Silicea is the chronic of Pulsatilla in nearly all ailments.
Eucalyptus compares with Ant. crud in action on mucous membranes; Ant. t. in bronchorrhoea; bronchial asthma.
