Free Astrological Chart Reading: “Will I Have a Second Child & When?
August 17, 2008 by Nina Gryphon
Reader Question: I am 29 years old and my husband is 34. We have a healthy daughter. We have been trying to conceive again for over a year now. My base-line blood tests are normal and the sperm test for my hubby is normal. The doctor has suggested to stop trying too hard and taking it easy for a while and if we are still not pregnant in another 4-5 months, he will send me to a specialist. Any advice? Do you see a pregnancy in the near future?
The horary horoscope for your question is very finely balanced, and while there is a good chance of you conceiving, it is not guaranteed, due to some obstacles shown in the chart.
Because this is a medical chart, I should mention that I am not a doctor, and you should listen to your doctor first and foremost. We first notice Jupiter in fall, retrograde, just inside the first house. This house represents your body, so any planets therein are important. Jupiter is the natural ruler of sperm, and seeing it afflicted in this chart is not encouraging. Also, we see the Moon in Capricorn, the sign of its detriment, afflicting the first house as well. The Moon rules the seventh house of your husband, so both indicators show that it may be worthwhile having him tested more extensively.
The baby is represented by Venus, ruler of your fifth house of children, which is in the sign of its fall, in Virgo. This is not terribly auspicious, but if we see a connection between you and the baby, the strength of Venus will be much less important. Venus has just separated from a conjunction with Saturn, the planet representing you, so unless you just got pregnant extremely recently, we will need to see a third planet bring the separating planets together.
Mercury is about to conjoin Saturn, which likely shows your visit to the doctor in a few months. Mercury is the natural ruler of doctors. Thereafter, a complex sequence of planetary aspects unfolds, mirroring the complexity of the situation. Venus trines Jupiter, Mercury trines Jupiter, and finally, Mercury conjoins Venus. Since Jupiter represents the health challenge that is likely keeping you from becoming pregnant, it looks as though the fertility specialist will help you address that obstacle before you can become pregnant.
Because of the domino effect indicating multiple dependencies, and because the planets involved are not terribly strong by sign or house, we cannot be absolutely certain that you will become pregnant. However, if you do, it is likely to happen a bit over a year from now, in the fall of 2009.
