Lunar Fertility - Using the the Moon to Fall Pregnant


Many women are aware of their potential to fall pregnant around the time of ovulation. But there is another fertile time that many women don’t realise they have - this is the time when the moon returns to the same phase as it was when you were born.

This method, called the Jonas method (named after the man who discovered this concept), has been used by many women trying to fall pregnant with great success. It’s not widely promoted, however, so many women aren’t aware that they potentially have a few extra days up their sleeve each month when trying to conceive. For example, if a woman was born under a Full Moon, she would then have an increased chance of conceiving whenever the Full Moon phase occurred.


There are eight lunar phases (New, Crescent, First Quarter, Gibbous, Full, Disseminating, Last Quarter and Balsamic). These phases are cyclical and recur each month. Each phase lasts approximately 3-and-a-half days.
