Astrology and Fertility

Astrology Fertility Fertile Birth

You may never have considered it, but many people believe that astrology and a woman's fertility are linked. Whether you are looking to become pregnant or looking to avoid it, astrology may be able to help you.

Many women around the world use the rhythm method as a natural form of birth control. But, did you know that your birth date could help the rhythm method be even more effective? Alternatively, that knowing the phase the moon was in when you were born could help you know the best time of the month to try to conceive. You may even be able to determine if you have a boy or a girl by using astrology.


The lunar fertility method dates back to ancient Babylonia, in which an ancient manuscript said that a woman's fertility was based on the moon. However, for years, this concept remained relatively obscured. Dr. Eugen Jonas brought the lunar fertility method to the forefront through additional research. A Czechoslovakian psychiatrist and astrologer, Dr. Jonas decided in 1956 to test this theory on woman. He eventually opened a fertility clinic in Czechoslovakia, but it was closed by the communist regime.

There were several reasons why Dr. Jonas was concerned about fertility. One was that as a Roman Catholic, he opposed abortion and felt that his method could be used not only to help those wanting to conceive, but also those who did not. He felt this method would help add to the reliability of the rhythm method. He also hoped his method would help barren women conceive.


The theory is simple - that a woman ovulates whenever the moon is in the phase it was in at the exact time she was born. For example, if the moon was in the new moon phase when you were born, that is the most likely time of the month for you to ovulate. A British study recently reported that men might be able to find out when their sperm count is at its highest by having their own lunar fertility phase charted.

Some believe the Jonas lunar fertility method can also be used to help mothers who have suffered miscarriages, who have had pregnancy complications or a difficult labour, stillbirths, or have a family history of genetic disorders or diseases.

A Boy or a Girl?

There are some couples that may have all boys or all girls and long for a child of the opposite sex. Lunar fertility may be able to help with that! Some studies reveal that you may be able to determine the sex of the child based on the position of the moon during the cycle of conception. If the moon is in a positive zodiacal sign during conception, which includes Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius, then you will have a boy. If the moon is in a negative zodiacal sign during conception, which includes Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces, you will have a girl.

How to Calculate

You can calculate your fertility method by using the planetary ephemeris, including both the 20th and 21st century. Start by determining the degrees of distance between the moon and the sun on your birth date. If you were born during a full moon, then the moon and the sun were 180 degrees apart. That means that you should be ovulating once a month when the moon and sun are exactly 180 degrees apart. If you are uncomfortable doing this, you can locate astrologers that will do it for you as long as you can provide the date and time you were born.

Through various studies, it appears that astrology and fertility are indeed linked. This fertility method had been charted over a million times since 1956 and Dr. Jonas reports that this method is 99% reliable.
