Guideline #2: If your Sun Sign is a water sign...
or you have three or more planets in water signs in your birth chart, the above dates are especially propitious for you.
The principle applies to those of you born when the Sun is in Pisces (February 19-March 20), Sun in Cancer (June 21-July 22), and Sun in Scorpio (October 24-November 22). If you know your birth chart (where the 10 planets and your rising sign are) and you have three or more planets in Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces, know that these are especially potent fertility “windows” for you to get pregnant.
Guideline #3: Use the most auspicious day of the month.
I am a Kriya yogini, in a branch of the Kriya Yoga lineage (Yogagnanda’s tradition) that uses astrology as a spiritual tool. Within Kriya Yoga it is known that the most auspicious day of any month is the fifth day after each new moon. This day represents the time of the month when the moon is growing and most robust, ideally the time to “plant a seed.” Also remember that the moon rules conception, fertility, the womb, mothers, babies, and families and their dynamics. For the next three water moon cycles that day would be:
- · July 6, 2011
- · October 31, 2011
- · February 26, 2012
If you are ovulating within three days of those dates, again head for the bedroom. A note here: some men can feel pressure to perform. Don’t force. Rather, invite or even seduce.
Guideline #4: Avoid important decisions or tests during Mercury retrograde times.
The planet, Mercury, rules your mind and your ability to perceive and understand. Mercury goes “retrograde” three times per year for three weeks each time. Try to avoid making any important decisions concerning your fertility efforts at these times. For instance you might end up second-guessing yourself or over time become doubtful of your chosen course of action. Also try to not undergo any critical tests during these times, as sometimes the results can be ambiguous or misinterpreted. You might have to take the tests again.
Mercury retrogrades for 2011 are
- · March 31–April 23, 2011
- · August 3–27, 2011
- · November 24–December 14, 2011
Try this experiment. Write down these dates on a calendar you frequently see, and notice these times. Use these periods for romance, and let me know the results.
These timing techniques are all many couples have needed. If you want a fertility consultation specific to your own chart, with a detailed approach to any particular obstacles you might face, we can do that too. This consultation is via phone (I pay for the call) and is recorded as an MP3 file. I cannot promise a baby as the outcome, but I can promise you pinpoint accurate times in which you are most likely be successful. And, who knows, nine months later we might be doing a session to help you get to know your newborn!
