Over a cup of tea Lady Anne asked me if she would ever conceive another child again. She and her husband had come to the verge of giving up after exhausting all the modern means. Lady Anne was my long old friend and I felt for her. Quickly I pulled out my magical iPad and fired up her birth chart to find out blessings of God. Thanks to modern technology! I could still remember all charts had to be done by hand calculation. Now they could be conjured up in a matter of minutes. How wonderful!
Lady Anne was still young and ‘within range’ to conceive a child. If she were in her late 50s I would likely have answered no straight away. I studied her 5th house which ruled children. Her 5th house had Libra on the cusp, hurray! This was not one of the usual suspect of the barren signs. There were 3 barren signs in the zodiac: Gemini, Leo and Virgo. I would be less optimistic if any of those were on her 5th house cusp. Don’t worry if your Sun sign is any of those and you would like to conceive a child. The sun sign doesn’t mean anything in this respect. The 5th house ruler Venus was aspected by Mars by opposition. This was an affliction. However Jupiter the great benefic also formed a nice trine with Venus. I could safely judge that she was very much fertile.
And then I looked for the timing for it to happen. My favourite technique came from Hellenistic (Greek) astrology called Profection. Her natal Ascendant and the Moon would be profected to the 5th house on her next birthday. That was awesome! I told Lady Anne to hold on her efforts this year until her next birthday. This year her marriage was stressing out because of too much effort, I could see transit Saturn had just moved into her 7th house of marriage. Saturn gave her marriage a heavy sense of burden and responsibilities. Yet the transit would lose influence in time. There was no reason to lose hope.
When there is a promise marked on the birth chart, it will be realised. The secret lies in its timing to happen. May the Forces be with Lady Anne.
