Moon influences fertility
It's true, you could get pregnant twice a month... And it's all because of the moon.
Most women watch their cycles and know that mid cycle or biological ovulation is the prime time to fall pregnant in.
What they don't know is that the moon can trigger ovulation and bring on fertililty at any time during the menstrual cycle (including during your period) ... it all depends on what phase the moon was at when you were born. This is your Natal Lunar Phase Fertile Time.
So what exactly is the Natal Lunar Phase Fertile Time?
The term Natal Lunar Phase Fertile Time (re-discovered by Dr Eugene Jonas) refers specifically to the angle between the sun and the moon when you were born.
Each month when the moon returns to this same position (as it was at your birth) it can trigger your body to spontaneously ovulate even if this time occurs outside your normal midcycle fertile time. Now it may not always do this, BUT THE POTENTIAL IS THERE.
If you are on the pill, consider timing how you take it so that your are taking the active hormone pills during your lunar fertile time. This reduces the risk of pregnancy occuring through unprotected sex in the bleeding week.
The moon's trigger effect is increased by two factors - stress and sexual intercourse. That is, if you are having sex during your natal lunar phase, the chances of ovulation being triggered are increased.
Your Natal Lunar Phase Fertile time is completely individual to you because it is calculated from your birth data .
How do I know when my Natal Lunar Phase Angle Fertile time occurs?
Your Natal Lunar Phase Angle is calculated from your astrological natal chart. This can be done through this website:
The Lunar Fertilty Report will caculate you natal lunar phase, analyse if your menstrual cycle is synchronised to your natal lunar phase and provide your natal lunar phase times for the next 4 or 12 months - including information on minimising unwanted pregnancy..
The 'Conception Action Pack' will assist you to conceive quickly and easily. Provides dates for the next 4 or 12 months
The Emergency Lunar Phase Calculation is helpful if you think unwanted pregnancy may have occurred and want to know if you had sex at a potentially fertile time.
Or through an astrologer, or a Natural Fertility Counsellor.
An in depth look at how the Natal Lunar Phase is calculated is here.
Synchronising you biological cycle to your lunar cycle can be beneficial.
For example if you are trying to avoid pregnancy it is essential to know when your natal lunar fertile time occurs so you are prepared.
If you are trying to fall pregnant, synchronising your cycle maximises your chance of falling pregnant at your fertile time.
If you have your natal lunar phase, you can check our ready reckoner to see when that phase will be repeated each month, approximately. Please note, this does not provide you with an exact time for individual conception or contraception purposes, but rather simply gives you an idea of where you, the moon and your cycle are for awareness purposes only. We are considering introducing a more exact reporting service to this site if we get enough demand for it.
