Astrology: fertility windows

Wondering if or when kids will come along? Your astrological charts might provide some surprisingly helpful insights.

Baby - astrology fertility chartsUsing a combination of Eastern and Western charting systems, I can calculate your most fertile days, months and years. Looking back on my life, which has included numerous false starts and periods of infertility, it’s incredibly accurate.

Known as the Four Pillars of Destiny, Chinese astrology shows very specific years and periods in which conception and motherhood can occur, whilst Western astrology pinpoints special days for each month. If your time of birth is known it’s even more accurate, but your horoscope can be assessed with just a birth date.

Western astrology has always given me comprehensive results (I’ve been practicing now for 30 years!) but learning the Chinese Four Pillars system has added extra insight, particularly around relationships, fertility and motherhood. When looking from both angles, my perspective can increase dramatically.

Love signs

Looking for love? Star signs can be surprisingly helpful, although when magic happens rules tend to fly out the window. This is just a general guide … you’ll need to organise a personal reading to get the full rundown. Relationships are my specialty!

ARIES: Lively Leos and Sags are traditionally your perfect pairings, but don’t discount chatty air signs – Geminis, Librans and Aquarians.

TAURUS: Virgos, Capricorns and Taurians may share your down-to-earth values, but the water signs – Pisceans, Scorpions and Cancerians – could inspire great things.

GEMINI: Aquarians, Geminis and Librans should click instantly, along with the fun-loving fire signs: Aries, Sagittarians and Leos.

CANCER: Pisceans and Scorpios are your traditional love matches, but the earth signs – Taurians, Capricorns and Virgos – should keep you grouded.

LEO: Relationships with Aries, fellow Leos and Sags should sizzle, with Geminis, Aquarians and romantic Librans should run a close second.

VIRGO: Taurians, Virgos and Capricorns may be your rock, but for a burst of passion and emotion, consider a Cancerian or Scorpion.

LIBRA: Geminis and Aquarians are your classic love matches, but the feisty fire signs – Aries, Leos and Sags – might send sparks flying.

SCORPIO: Passionate Cancerians, Scorpions and Pisceans should hit the emotional spot, along with earthy Virgos and Capricorns.

SAGITTARIUS: Leos, Aries and fellow Sags often click instantly, or for a more cerebral connection try an air sign – Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.

CAPRICORN: Virgos, Taurians and Capricorns (the zodiac’s earth signs) may feel comfy, but if you’re after fireworks find a Scorpio or Pisces.

AQUARIUS: Geminis, Librans and fellow Aquarians should click instantly, or let a feisty Leo, Sag or Aries light your fire.

PISCES: Scorpions, Cancerians and fellow Fish may feel like kindred spirits but Capricorns and Taurians aren’t far behind!

Welcome to 2017

Welcome to 2017, the year of excess and inspiration! With Jupiter blowing everything out of proportion and unpredictable Uranus fanning the flames, life certainly won’t be boring. These over-the-top stars want it all, but don’t get too carried away, especially on the financial front. With Neptune obscuring the facts, risky ventures might prove to be just that.

On the flipside, these eccentric, passionate patterns could work wonders after dark, not just for lovers, but for artists and performers as well. As we search for escapism, music, comedy and old-style entertainment could enter a golden era. You might even feel a yearning to sing or dance yourself … or a yearning to express yourself could reveal your inner artist. Bring on the fun and games!

The Ascendant

At the eastern point of the horoscope sits the Ascendant, or rising sign. It represents the personality that we project to the world, our persona. People usually come across as their ascendant or ‘rising sign’ when we first meet them, and these traits can either work in harmony or in tension with the sun sign (which rules the inner self). Some people hide behind their ascendant, turning it into a sort of mask, while others embrace and integrate the characteristics.

Along with the persona, the ascendant rules the physical body, so someone with Cancer rising may be have a rounded face and a sensitive, nurturing nature, while a Gemini ascendant might bring an angular appearance and a chatty, jittery edge (nail-biting can be a dead giveaway).

Of course, if you have a planet sitting near the ascendant or situated in the first house, this will add complexity to the picture, but the interpretations below should form a good starting point.

I’ve used Meryl Streep’s chart to show where the ascendant or rising sign is … see the red circle on the left? That’s it. Her ascendant is ruled by Leo, while her sun is in Cancer. Hence, her love for drama and taking risks.

Your sun sign is just the tip of the iceberg!


People with Aries ascendants tend to move quickly, talk quickly, and act without hesitation; in fact their boundless energy and enthusiasm are often legendary. Due to their confidence, they often come across as natural leaders and entrepreneurs, although their impulsive, excitable nature can lead to mishaps, especially when angry.
Traits: active or sporty, magnetic, extroverted, competitive, confident, headstrong, enterprising, often ruddy complexion


People with Taurus ascendants tend to take a more considered, slow and steady approach, but once their mind is made up, there’s no stopping them. Their senses are generally highly attuned, giving a love for good food, soft fabrics, music and finer things in life; comfort, quality and luxury often rank high on their list of priorities.
Traits: stable, dependable, refined, musical or artistic, stubborn, determined, acquisitive, often strong, sturdy or thick-set


People with Gemini on the ascendant tend to be energetic, agile and always on the go; they generally love a chat, and due to their natural curiosity, are often drawn towards books, films and media-related fields. Nervous habits are common in this sign, but plenty of exercise and physical activity can help to calm them down.
Traits: versatile, well-read, expressive, edgy, curious, active, impulsive, talkative, restless, often slim, tall or boney


People with Cancer on their ascendant tend to be sensitive, caring souls; their home is their sanctuary, and like a crab, they retreat into their shell when threatened. Parenthood and teaching professions often appeal, along with food, health and finance-related fields, for comfort and material security are important to this sign.
Traits: sensitive, sympathetic, feeling, moody, intuitive, defensive, home loving, often pale, plump or round in the face.


People with Leo on their ascendant need to be noticed. The bigger and more glamourous, the better, especially when it comes to cars, clothes and their hair (or mane). Their confident, extroverted approach makes them natural performers, managers, motivators and salespeople, but beneath the exterior, the ego can be surprisingly fragile.
Traits: friendly, confident, loyal, glamourous, creative, dramatic, bossy, opinionated, restless, often bald or have ‘big hair’


People with Virgo on their ascendant tend to be intelligent, exacting, competent and discriminating. Their attention to detail is often impressive, but over-thinking things can lead to worry and negative thinking, or even OCD. A preference for stylish items and quality clothing often surfaces early, along with a love for facts and figures.
Traits: practical, methodical, hard-working, reliable, exacting, health-conscious, anxious, face often develops fine worry lines


People with Libra on their ascendant tend to be talkative, charming and charismatic. Their aesthetic eye is usually well developed, leading to a love for fashion, design and the performing arts. Relationships are often a preoccupation, along with issues involving justice and fair play. Their refined, stylish manner can be a dead giveaway.
Traits: diplomatic, stylish, romantic, cultured, chatty, indecisive, often well-dressed, with wide-set eyes or attractive features


People with Scorpio on their ascendant tend to be private or secretive, especially when they feel emotionally exposed. Power and control are strong life themes, but when harnessed correctly, these traits can bring great influence and success. An air of mystery and charisma often acts as a magnet to the opposite sex.
Traits: passionate, driven, intense, secretive, sexual, powerful, competitive, often drawn to mysterious people, situations and places


People with Sagittarius on their ascendant often crave freedom and fresh air. Travel can be a major theme or they may be drawn to foreign philosophies, people and places; their search for answers often lasts a lifetime. Known for their sense of humour and outgoing nature, they are often quite private, or even aloof.
Traits: friendly, talented, generous, unpredictable, outdoorsy, adventurous, restless, often drawn to travel and the outdoors


People with Capricorn on their ascendant tend to feel old before their time; even as children they may feel more responsible and serious than others, but as they age they become more carefree. Still, they place high value on hard work, rules and respect; their sensible, grounded nature often makes them pillars of society.
Traits: practical, conservative, careful, industrious, wise, judgmental, reliable, organised, often tall or wiry with a lined face


People with Aquarius on their ascendant value originality, freedom and independence; they’re the scientists, innovators and eccentrics of the zodiac, but a surprisingly stubborn, sceptical streak can run deep. Often opinionated and always up for a chat, people with this rising sign follow the beat of their own drum.
Traits: friendly, inventive, unique, eccentric, freedom-loving, determined, stubborn, often drawn to colourful people and clothes


People with Pisces on their ascendant tend to feel emotions deeply and resonate with other-worldly spheres. Mysticism, healing and the arts may attract them from an early age, but when ungrounded, escapist tendencies can surface in negative ways. Being creative souls, finding healthy, expressive outlets is essential.
Traits: sensitive, creative, caring, moody, imaginative, mystical, escapist, compassionate, often pale skin and cold extremities

The Saturn-Neptune dilemma

As Saturn and Neptune form an exact square overhead (a stressful 90 degree aspect), many of us will begin to question life’s bigger issues … especially around areas involving freedom, control, creativity, spirituality, security and responsibility.

Saturn pushes us towards structure, routine, responsibility and so called ‘sensible thinking’, while Neptune rules more idealistic, ethereal worlds, along with confusion, deception and escapism (yes, watch those wines). As you can see, it’s not the most natural pairing. One planet deals with cold hard facts, the other with the alluring realm of dreams and illusion.

But Neptune is urging us to loosen our grip and see what happens, especially if our lives have become too structured and serious. It doesn’t deal with black and white, good and bad. Instead, it encourages us to dig deeper, to experience life more fully and reach out with love and compassion. It reminds us that we are connected to everything and everyone, whether we like it or not.

Depending on where they fall in your horoscope the effects may be subtle or intense … ranging from a shift in perception to an entire new philosophy on life, although with a full moon heightening the energy, the effects are likely to be strong.

If you’re unsure what to do, a great place to start would be with a dream diary or a few yoga or meditation classes. Take your time and let things percolate. Your subconscious will be unusually accessible over this period, so try to tune in.

* The Saturn-Neptune square first aligns on 26 November 2015, then again in mid-June and early September, 2016. It’s part of a larger 36-year cycle that began in 1989 and ends in 2026.
