2 articles for "Conception"

Conception [DeVore]

According to Ptolemy the sex as well as the incidents relating to a child, prior to its birth, may be deduced from the positions of the planets at the time of conception. The entire subject of prenatal cosmic stimulation is a welter of confused theorizing, which as yet lacks confirmation in practice sufficient to bring about any unanimity of opinion.

Conception Chart [Astro*Index]

A chart for the time of a person's conception generally erected for a time nine months prior to birth when the Moon transits the natal ascendant. Another and more general method uses the New or Full moon nearest to the conception date. This chart is sometimes used in matters of health and in esoteric astrology.
