I don't want a child around Christmas or the New Year, which means we
try this month or wait till May to try.
I found a website that allows you to search the how well your current
child and future child would be together based on their signs. It
also gives you one where you can put in you and your spouses signs
and it tells you which month/sign would be best for this year. Both
things said that February is a bad month to try and we should wait
till May. All this is fine except i kinda wanted my kids more toward
3 years apart rather han 4 years. I know that's kinda silly but it's
So I'm wondering, what do you think about horoscopes and what I've
found out? Do you think I should ignore it, or is there truth to it?
Here's the site..
Here's our results..
Here's the sibling compatibility..
For getting preganat this month
For waiting till may...

A couple of thoughts:
One's chart contains many planets and one's and experience of family dynamics is much more complex than sun sign compatibility. Also, it is not even a truism that certain sun signs "get along", there are simply too many other factors. We can often empathize more easily or understand the point of view of those with "compatible" signs, because they are coming from the same place, but very often we are drawn to people we are not compatible with, and learn and grow more with these relationships.
The moon changes sign every 2-2.5 days, and the moon sign addresses how someone experiences emotion, home, mother, food, the body, nourishment, all pre-verbal communication and learning. In my practice I've observed how important the interplay of lunar signs are in family dynamics. The moon sign and its progressions affect people's emotional patterns and tendencies for the rest of their lives. The moon sign is more personal and specific than the sun sign, which is shared by everyone in a given month. I've frequently seen links between sun/ascendant sign of the mother and the moon sign of the baby.
The rising sign changes (ASC or ascendant) changes every 2-2.5 hours, and relates to physical health and vitality, appearance and what someone's energy comes across outwardly, which can be very different from their inner reality.
So 2 of the big 3 important sign placements indicating basic personality traits can't be chosen, short of a scheduled C-section.
As an astrologer, I could not help looking ahead at charts when I was TTC.
We did succeed in conceiving May in order to have an Aquarius baby, and I liked some of the other planetary positions in charts in late Jan, early Feb. Well, now I'm a few days past my due date and we could have a Pisces little one!
So basically, you can't control it, ever. It is totally fun to look at charts and speculate. Your baby has their own time frame, own karmas and dare I saw own intentions upon incarnation on this planet, which might include hard family dynamics and worse. All we can do really is pray. Which actually is something I would advise- to pray, or call out spiritually to the soul that wants to come and be part of your family. The intention is the important thing.
So right now I'm praying that our baby comes before the moon gets to a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn, which can mean a level of emotional suffering I would not wish on any being. But I have to accept that if they get a hard chart, they have still chosen parents who can be compassionate and help them deal.
Thanks for your help!
ETA I clicked the link and OMG! My hunches were right on! My top picks are Aries, Leo, Sagg, Aquarius, and those are the best according to the site, and also Libra.
The ones I DO NOT want are Gemini and Taurus and those are the two the site says are the worst compatibility. Yay for hunches.
Anyway according to that site an Aries is not a good fit.
I wouldn’t trade him for anything in the world, not even a perfect astrological match!

LOL part of me is waiting a couple more months so I don't have an Aries baby. My exdh was an Aries and although we are still good friends I don't want to go there again. I wouldn't mind another Taurus though
Anyway according to that site an Aries is not a good fit.
I have an Aries baby and the first year of his life was hell for me. It's getting better now that I'm kinda figuring out how to deal with his temper but, man it's intense. I've had to let him kinda cry because I can't possibly meet all his needs. The other day I was kneading bread, and he started crying and in 3 minutes went from fine to soooo pissed off crying he puked. He does that 2 or 3 times a WEEK!
My first is a Gemini and I've never liked any of them I've met but he's super awesome
If I'm pregnant this cycle I'll probably have a Capricorn (both previous babies were 4 weeks early) and I'm thrilled with that!
He's a Cancer (moon in Sag) and I'm a Sagittarius (moon in Aquarius). If we conceive this cycle, the baby would be a Pisces...he's fine with that, I dunno, I've never really trusted water signs much (even though I married one!) I'd be fine if the baby comes early and is an Aquarius, but DH doesn't like that one! I like fire and air signs best, he likes earth and water...
Of course, with my luck it'll wait a few more cycles and wind up a Taurus. My mom's a Taurus, my first Serious Romance was with a Taurus...I've had enough Tauruses in my life tyvm!
On a slightly different note, I did a tarot reading asking it to tell me about my child to come...Celtic Cross layout, card 10 (Eventual Outcome) was the King of Swords! Which sounds like an air-sign boy to me!
My ideals are for the rest of this year...
Leo October 25th-November 15th
Cancer September 25th-October 15th
Libra December 25th-January 15th
Then Middle "Good Days, Bad Baby"
Gemini August 25th-September 15th
Which target conecption date or sign do you recommend I try for?
Am I being really silly for considering putting off TTC til next cycle? It was the original plan but then we decided Aquarius would be nice too and TTC a little last month but it was too late in my cycle and it didn't work. But I've never considered a Pisces baby before. The only Pisces I knw is my aunt and she is craaaaazy. : I'm honestly leaning toward waiting, but at the same time I'm terrified that it won't work next cycle and I'll be SOL, which would be sad. Humph. I have no idea how I ended up caring so much about astrology!
