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.

To find out your lunar phase, you need to calculate the distance between the Sun and the Moon at the time of your birth. Once you know which of the eight phases you were born under, you then need to find out when that particular phase is active each month in order to be able to utilise the lunar energy. Most astrologers with good software can do this for you - information is specific, giving dates and exact times of phase commencement.

Sex selection is also possible. Conception when the moon is in a masculine or yang sign (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius & Aquarius) will result in a boy. Conception when the moon is in a feminine or yin sign Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn & Pisces) will result in a girl. The moon changes sign approximately every 2-and-a-half days. Matching up the lunar phase and the moon sign can give a very high success rate in determining the sex of the baby.

For women with irregular menstrual cycles, the lunar fertility method can be very helpful, as it is predictable.
