There’s no denying it; astrology is trending these days. At the very least, you probably know your zodiac sign. At the very most, well, there are entire books worth of the information astrology can tell us. Whether you’re new to the star scene or are an avid astrologist, you’ll probably be interested in how the moon and its relatives can influence your fertility and pregnancy.

Plenty of theories regarding pregnancy and astrology exist. Is becoming pregnant in the stars for you? Some believe that it may be more in the moon, actually. At a basic level, the moon is best known for representing fertility, and is related to nurturing traits. One theory holds that a woman ovulates when the moon is in the exact same phase it was in when she was born. This is known as the Lunar Fertility Method. Pay attention to the sky when you are trying to conceive. If the moon is in a positive zodiac sign during conception, it is believed you are having a boy. Vice versa for a girl.

For your reference…

Positive/Masculine zodiac signs: Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius  

Negative/Feminine zodiac signs: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces 

Another common categorization of the signs is fruitful, semi-fruitful, and barren. These titles refer to a woman's fertility.

For your reference…

Fruitful/Fertile zodiac signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Semi-fruitful/Semi-fertile signs: Libra, Taurus, Capricorn

Barren/Infertile signs: Aries, Gemini, Libra, Virgo, Sagittarius, Aquarius

Don’t be discouraged by the placement of your sign on this list! It is definitely not the end-all-be-all of your pregnancy journey. Remember, these are simply theories. If your sign is infertile that doesn’t mean you have no chance. Make sure you keep an open mind on this road to motherhood!

If you’re looking for more tailored, specific fertility advice as related to astrology, consider scheduling a fertility astrology consult. By providing the professional astrologist with your date, time, and place of birth, they can map out your astrological signature. Some believe that this information can give insight into the best time for trying to conceive, among other things. 

Again, it’s important to remember that struggles with infertility consist of many variables. Make sure you address health issues and speak with your doctor to eliminate potential causes for infertility before turning to the stars for the answers.
