Among them are US fertility experts who will study the work of Nicola Smuts, a British-based astrologer who claims to have helped women conceive, even after IVF treatment had failed.
By using “pioneering and unique” astrological analysis, Ms Smuts claims to divine “lucky times” when women are most likely to conceive.
Despite initial scepticism, some former clients believe her approach has proved helpful….
Now researchers at Shady Grove Fertility, a chain of IVF clinics in the US, want to test her skills by providing her with the birth details of hundreds of their clients.
Ms Smuts will be asked to calculate the most promising dates for them to attempt conception, and the clinic will compare her predictions with records of whether or not the women get pregnant at the astrologically favoured times.
The study will start next year…”
This article in The Australian no doubt interested heaps of peeps.
I suspect that it’s actually a really old bit of astrological lore that she is using here.
Simply – and yes i am aware that many complex factors determine conception, am not a medical professional etc etc – you know how there is a monthly fertile phase that can be determined via various methods?
They say that there is a second highly fertile phase & that this is why often catches out those women who use the rhythm method of birth control but that if you harness it for conception, it’s really effective.
It’s when the Moon is at the same place she was at when you were born. It’s called your natal lunar angle and there is more on it here.
But note that it is the angle not the sign.
Eg; You might have Moon in Virgo but that is irrelevant (was going to insert Virgo joke here about but decided not to) as what we are looking at is the angle. Were you born on a Full Moon, New Moon etc. If it was an exact Full Moon than your Moon will be exactly 180 degrees from the Sun. So when it is exactly there again, there is your natal lunar angle.
You could actually time it right down the to exact second if you had an exact birthtime…And i think this is what the woman above is doing…It’s ancient.
And any astrologer can generate a list of your natal lunar angles for the year ahead or whatevs (it’s easy, but fiddly) or you can d.i.y. with a bit of ingenuity…
It will be fascinating to see how the study pans out…Yes?
