The Chinese conception calendar uses various factors in order to predict a baby’s gender. The roots of these predictions have very strong Chinese astrology behind them. Understand how the Chinese lunar calendar for conception is read accurately.
Predicting the gender if a baby is quite popular in our world. In the East, especially in India, knowing the sex of the baby before it is born is illegal. However, no harm can be done by simply making predictions. Legend has it that the Chinese gender calendar was found buried some 700 odd years ago in a royal tomb near Beijing. Today the original Chinese conception calendar is kept in the Institute of Science, Beijing. However, some people believe that the chart, found buried in a tomb near Peking is kept in the Peking Museum of Science. Considering the beliefs and testimonies, it would be very difficult to say where the original chart is located now. But one thing is for sure, the Chinese lunar pregnancy calendar can predict the gender of an unborn baby with 90% accuracy.
Of course, people who are skeptical about this will argue against this theory. But there are ways to determine the gender with a small calculation. Many websites have provided the Chinese calendar for conception, however the methodological analysis is inaccurate. Reading the chart for fun is quite alright, but many pregnant women would like to believe its predictions completely. That is why, providing a “fun” calendar would be like taking a risk. The calendar adopts its roots from the Chinese astrology and understanding its basics is the key to interpret the chart. In the following article, we will go over the basics of Chinese astrology and how the calendar is applied to predict the sex of the baby.
Basics of Chinese Astrology
- Perhaps you have heard or read that Chinese zodiac signs are based on 12 different animals: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and boar.
- These 12 zodiac signs represent specific years, on the basis of 12-year rotating cycle. For example, 2010 is the “Year of the Tiger”.
- Chinese astrology follows moon signs, and lunar-based year system.
- Although in western cultures, the solar year system is followed and it provides some insights, it won’t be as accurate as the lunar year and age.
- For example, if you were born in December or January, the lunar age will differ from the solar age.
- Depending on which animal sign you are, you can understand your character analysis more deeply.
Predicting the Baby’s Gender
- To interpret the calendar, you need to calculate your exact lunar age.
- Follow these instructions to calculate: if your birth date falls between January 1 and February 20 (add both these dates in your calculations as well), then you will use your current age.
- Now if your birth date falls between February 21 and December 21 (add both these dates in your calculations as well), then you will add 1 year to your current age.
- Now comes the part where you figure out which month you conceived the baby, according to the lunar-based month.
- Once you have both the numbers, you can get about 90% accuracy of this calendar. You can go to the conception table provided below and predict the sex of the unborn baby.
|Chinese Lunar Calendar Conception|
|Age of Mother||Jan||Feb||Mar||April||May||June||July||Aug||Sept||Oct||Nov||Dec|
So how are we supposed to look at this table and make sense out of it? Simple, look in the mother’s “age of conception” rows, go across to the exact “month of conception” column to find out the predicted gender of your unborn child according to the lunar calendar. For example, a pregnant woman who conceived her baby in the month of November when she was 29 years old will have a baby girl. The same goes for you or any other pregnant woman you know, just plug the numbers in and find the gender where the age and month intersect on the calendar.
