The Jonas Method is an astrological approach that involves timing conception based on moon phases and the astrological sign under which a woman was born. It suggests that a woman has both a physiological cycle (determined by her body) and a cosmic or astrological cycle (determined by the moon and the sun).
Dr. Eugen Jonas, who developed the method, proposed that women have two fertile periods per month: one following ovulation (physiological fertility) and another during a particular phase of the moon (astrological fertility). He formulated a table to help women calculate their astrological fertility period.
|Lunar Phase||Fertility Status||Notes|
|New Moon||Fertile||This is when the moon is not visible from Earth.|
|Waxing Moon||Fertile||This is the phase when the moon is increasing in light, moving towards a full moon.|
|Full Moon||Most Fertile||The moon is fully illuminated. According to Jonas, this is the peak of astrological fertility.|
|Waning Moon||Less Fertile||This is the phase when the moon is decreasing in light, moving towards the new moon again.|
To calculate the exact astrological fertility periods, one would need the precise time of birth and the geographical coordinates of the birthplace, which are then used to calculate the position of the moon at the time of birth.
Please remember that the reliability of the Jonas Method as a way of predicting fertility is highly debated, and scientific backing is limited. Always consult a healthcare professional or fertility expert when planning pregnancy.
