View Full Version : Giving Birth - urgent!

07-29-2007, 05:33 PM
Hi everyone,
i was on here couple of months ago asking about pregnancy and i received some really good answers.

I am now 38 weeks and i cant wait to have this baby!I feel so exhausted it's unbelievable,i've become anemic,i can't go anywhere i always feel so faint,i just want it to end and to have my baby at last.

Is there any way you could tell me when this baby will be coming? Can you tell the exact date or is that not possible?

I would really appriciate this,as doctors here don't intervene until you are 2 weeks past your due date!

Thanks in advance x

I think this question would be better suited for horary than natal astrology. Do you recall the exact date, time, and location you first thought of this question? If not, I recommend that you create a new thread in the Horary Astrology medical subboard, or I can transfer this thread there for you if you wish. I know that Draco in particular actually prefers to interpret horary charts with no given data, for it gives him the perfect opportunity to use his method of choice--using the date, time, and location that he first understood the question.

Of course, there is a slight disadvantage of this, for you will have as many charts as responses. However, I think it's certainly worth a try ;)

Best of luck to you and your unborn baby!

Hi justme07,
Can you choose a random number between 1 and 249 both inclusive, try not to have your fav/lucky numbers and we'll see how it goes?


07-29-2007, 07:33 PM
Thanks to both of you :)

Arian,if you wouldn't mind you can move this to horary forum. The exact time i have thought to ask this question was the time i posted this reply - 30 july 2007 20:34 pm.

Sskholi - the first number i thought of was 3.

Thanks again! x

Hi justme,
in nadi astrology 2,5,11 houses signify child birth, in your horary, 3 planets were in the 5th house, any other fast moving planets aspecting them from 11th or 2nd will cause the delivery to happen.
Now Moon is in the 10th house (capricorn) as soon as it moves to the 11th house it will aspect the 5th house and wham you'll ave your baby. which will be as soon as tomorrow..31st july if we take exact degrees, it can be anytime tomorrow or day after. and since there are a number of 8, 12 means it could be c-section c-serian..or whatever you call it.

congrats in advance...let us know how it goes :)

Best of luck to you, and remember: Have someone (don't try to do it yourself) to write down the EXACT moment the head first emerges if you deliver vaginally and the EXACT moment the baby takes its first breath. Try to find an atomic clock--accuracy is key!

This may seem a bit obsessive, but if your child is born between the cusp of two fast-rising Ascendant signs, even one minute can make the difference between a Pisces Ascendant or an Aries Ascendant, for example. To this day I am unsure of my exact Ascendant/Descendant and Midheaven/Nadir signs because recording the time of birth is not generally the first thing birth attendants do; cleaning and weighing the newborn understandably takes priority, not to mention that the clocks in the various delivery rooms may differ from each other.

I'm so excited for you! :D

thanks for well wishes,and i will tell my mum (who is one of my birthing partners) to write down the exact time*

Unfortunately, you've made this a bit difficult by omitting your natal data from the chart because we cannot create your chart using Astrodienst or another astrology program and see exactly where the transiting planets are currently positioned in your natal charts.

Even if we did have this information, though, you must keep in mind that the birth of an infant is not simply an event chart, but rather sets the astrological pattern for the newborn for the rest of his or her life. Many astrologers, including myself, believe that the incoming soul chooses the exact time and place of its physical birth in exact accordance with its karma or whatever energies the soul may wish to bring to the planet at this time. Make no mistake, this is big stuff and cannot be rushed, although it is quite understandable that you are more than ready to deliver.

Your child will undoubtedly have connections with your natal chart, but as we cannot be certain what lessons the soul may wish to learn in this lifetime, I do not feel comfortable predicting its time of birth, which would "set the stage" for this and more.

Nevertheless, I can tell you that Jupiter, the ruler of your fifth house (using the Placidus house system), is currently transiting your fifth house--this is one of the most perfect indicators of pregnancy/fertility that I can think of, although of course not everyone with Jupiter transiting their fifth house will have children during this period!

I find it interesting that retrograde Jupiter, which is exactly at 9 Sagittarius 57 at the moment of writing, is tightly semisextile your natal Pluto at 9 Scorpio 40 (I had difficulty reading the exact minute at the chart, so this may be off slightly). Transiting Saturn in Leo is almost exactly trine your natal Uranus, which is tightly conjunct transiting Pluto.

What all of this may indicate about the timing of the birth, I am unsure. In horary astrology, one usually judges timing by identifying the significator of the querent and the significator of the quesited and examines the relationship between them, using different techniques to determine when the two planets may perfect an aspect. However, this is not a horary question and I am not a horary astrologer, so I'm at a bit of a loss what to do here.

Does anyone have any experience with timing birth based upon transits or progressions of the mother's natal chart? I created a horary-like chart for the moment I seriously applied myself to this puzzle, and although I am certainly not pregnant, I've read in at least one horary astrology book that one should use the ruler of the Ascendant to describe the querent, even if the querent did not create the horary chart; I believe this is why Saturn in the seventh house, which represents the astrologer, is a traditional "warning" against judgment. So if justme07, and not me, is signified by the ruler of the first house, Saturn in Leo in the seventh (the chart's warning me already not to attempt this, but I already know I'm no horary astrologer so there are no surprises here :rolleyes:), and the ruler of the fifth house cusp, Mercury in Cancer, represents the child...what would represent the emergence of the child from the mother's physical body? Should we say when Mercury changes signs from Cancer to Leo? Mercury has already passed a semisextile (minor aspect not generally used in horary, anyway) with Saturn and its next aspect would be the conjunction. Unfortunately, I've left both of my horary astrology books at home and cannot recall what unit of time a fixed sign corresponds with--hours, days, weeks, etc. Obviously, it can't be months, because the baby will surely be delivered by this time. And Mercury starts in a cardinal sign and moves into a fixed sign. Again, what to do?

Can an experienced astrologer please relieve me from my own inexperience and confusion before I embarrass myself further? :o

Hi justme,
its now almost 39 weeks, you still there?
I mean why aren't you doing it surgically.

Nice analysis Arian,
I wish i could help, i have exeprience with timing (though not births) based upon transits, but then that would be Vedic'ally.i am almost asleep right now, i will explain how we do it tomorrow.
untill then adios


08-07-2007, 08:24 PM
Hi,im still here :(

i dilated from 0 to 2cm since sunday,but to be in established labor you have to be atleast 4cm ... im at home right now,and we're just waiting ... im very exhausted because im contracting but it doesnt seem to be doing that much ..my contractions are still not regular enough to be in real labor.

Hopefully SOMETHING will happen soon,if not i have to wait atleast 40+ weeks to be induced,they don't do anything surgically here unless there is something wrong with the baby,and luckily she is fine just a little bit sttuborn!


08-19-2007, 07:20 PM
hi just..
you still there?
did the little bugger decide to come out..
what do the medics say now ??


08-19-2007, 11:24 PM
My advice: do not choose to induce labor unless there are significant health concerns to yourself or baby. expect contractions to come and go. it has to hurt an awful lot to be the real thing. keep breathing and try your best to have him/her naturally without drugs.
