What Is Astro Fertility?

Consulting the Stars to Conceive

Reading your horoscope is one thing, but using it to conceive takes it to a whole other level. But after the great zodiac freak-out of 2011 (which, BTW is moot) I doubt couples who've had luck with astro fertility were shaken. The method claims there are only two to three times a year when a woman can get pregnant successfully (i.e. no miscarriages), and there are plenty of couples who believe it works.

Pioneering astro fertility is British astrologer Nicola Smuts. She analyzes the alignment of Venus and Jupiter — two planets associated with fertility — with a man and woman's astrological chart, determined by the time, place, and date of births. For £150 (about $240), she says on her site, she can not only tell when you're most likely to conceive, particularly through in-vitro fertilization, but also diagnose underlying conditions inhibiting pregnancy (the quantity of eggs, condition of fallopian tubes, STDs, hormonal imbalances, and psychological conditions).

It sounds, and is, crazy, but couples who've seen her swear by the method (though I'd like to hear from ones who don't). Most have already spent thousands on fertility treatments, so what's a few more hundred?
