Q: I really need your help. I would like to know if my husband and I will ever have kids? I was born April 27, 1982 at 6:15 a.m. in Houston, Texas. I have really been having a hard time. Every month is hard. Can you give me some advice or information?
A: One of my speciality areas is using astrology to assist in fertility and when using planets for conception + pregnancy, there are a number of approaches, some of the quite technical, that can be taken. Here’s a basic overview of your fertility profile and cycles. With Virgo ruling your children zone, there can be some delays with conception. Virgo rules digestion so it pays to ensure you have a good diet and proper nutrition to boost your chances. Your personal baby planet, Mercury, is placed in earth sign Taurus – a generally favourable spot. Taurus does do things slowly though, so again patience is required. Taurus is the sign of hormones and the thyroid, and a quick check with your doctor will ensure everything is working as it should in these areas.
With an Aries rising/ascendant, Mars is one of your most important planets – especially health wise. Right now, serious Saturn is energising your Mars, which typically slows things down (can you spot the theme?!). This Saturn/Mars aspect is in play in November 2009, March 2010 and August 2010. Take your time to do all the preparation, emotionally and physically, to get you and your hubby ready for your parenting adventure. Saturn/Mars also helps you grow up – and if you have any residual issues around your own father, this is a great time to heal them.
Once the Saturn/Mars transit is over, you may find barriers and blocks to your baby making mission are easily lifted. To help you out, early in 2011, lucky Jupiter triggers Mars (late January + February) bringing growth and expansion. Do the work now, and 2011 might just bring you family the dream you want!
