Horary Question:

I have had endometriosis for the past nine years. I have one son and I’ve lost four babies since 1998. The most recent loss was in February and since then I have had nothing but problems. I am in pain constantly and I am seriously considering a hysterectomy. I am only 29 and my fiancé has three children, two of which we have custody. I desperately want to have another child, but the pain is so bad that sometimes it just doesn’t seem worth it. Is that slim chance of me having another child worth all the pain I am going through? I want to have the surgery if it is going to be better for my health, but I am torn between my emotions and my body. Part of me is screaming to just have the surgery, but the other part of me is crying out for another child. Will I ever have another child?


Nina Gryphon:

Dear C.,

Thank you for writing to me. I know people with this difficult illness, and the attendant pain, suffering, and sometimes infertility is truly unfortunate. Since this is a semi-medical question, this would be a good time to mention that I am not a doctor, always listen to your doctor first, this is not medical advice, etc.

I cast a horary chart for the moment that I understood your question, and the drawing of that horoscope is below:

Fertility Astrology Horoscope - Horary Astrology – Will I Ever Have Another Child?

First, we note that the ruler of the first house of self is the Sun in Gemini, a barren sign. However, it is conjunct Aldebaran, a fixed star in the constellation Taurus. It is associated with a fresh start, so perhaps the meaning here is that you may be fertile, but unable to carry a child to term. But let us look at other indicators in the horoscope.

The fifth house, which rules your children and fertility, is governed by Jupiter, which is in Sagittarius, a sign that is neither fertile nor barren. Jupiter is in its own sign, which is positive, but it is retrograde, again repeating the same theme that your pregnancies would end prematurely. We also see that Jupiter is trine Mars and Saturn, so it is severely afflicted by these two malefic planets. Note that Saturn rules your seventh house, which signifies your reproductive system and pelvis, and it is very weak due to its location in Leo, the sign of its detriment. This is a reflection of the illness afflicting this part of your body.

It is important to note that the Moon in Sagittarius is just inside the fifth house of children, so it is going to be an important indicator of your fertility. It is Peregrine, so it has no essential strength, and it is quite afflicted by its upcoming opposition to the Sun. The Moon rules your 12th house of self undoing, and afflicts the ascendant by a trine aspect, indicating that your desire for child harms you (presumably because you are not getting surgery to stop the pain, and also to prevent the illness from getting worse).

Since your question is partly medical, I also would want to take a quick look at the prospective treatment (the hysterectomy), which is ruled by the 10th house. The 10th house is ruled by Mars, the natural ruler of surgery, so that is very appropriate. Mars is quite strong in Aries, where it exalts the Sun. So the proposed surgery looks rather helpful to you.

Unfortunately, the prospects for carrying a child to term are not very positive. You probably could conceive, but the problems indicated in the horoscope are quite serious, and I would hate for your health to deteriorate further if another child was lost. Note that even if the surgery did not prohibit the aspect between the Sun (you) and the child (Jupiter), the aspect between the Sun and Jupiter is an opposition, which indicates conception, but one that does not end well for you or the child.
