In this post I talk about the manner in which the Chinese birth chart can be used for achieving each of these two purposes: guessing the gender of an unborn baby and predetermining the sex of a child that has not been conceived yet. I also describe this chinese calendar for 2016, which is believed to be able to:
- identify whether a fetus is a boy or a girl;
- when a child should be conceived in order to have an intended gender: female or male.
These two methods, of sex prediction and sex selection, represent a traditional Chinese technique from the 13th century, which has astrological roots, it is based on a legend and, to my knowledge, it is not officially promoted and there is no scientist to support it. You certainly have heard about twins that have different genders. Well, all these facts clearly show that the strategies of gender identification and gender control that are centered on this ancient chart are appropriate only for having fun. You really should be aware of this essential aspect whenever you are thinking to or using them.
Calendar: Chinese vs Gregorian
The fundamental aspect of the Chinese gender chart is that all its dates refer only to the Chinese lunar calendar, which differs a lot from the Gregorian one, not only when it comes to dates or periods of time, but also when it comes to ages. Each cell of this chart contains the gender for either boy or girl. Each horizontal line of this famous table stands for a lunar age of baby’s mother at conception and each vertical line corresponds to a lunar month of conception. A lunar year has, in general, twelve lunar months.
The Chinese lunar months are delimited by the astronomical new moons in a certain area; because of this, their beginnings and endings vary from one year to another. Here are the Gregorian periods that correspond to the lunar year that overlaps the most with the common year 2016: the first lunar month begins on 8 February 2016, and it ends on 8 March 2016; the second lunar month lasts from 9 March 2016 to April 2016; the last, namely the 12th, lunar month is this Gregorian interval: 29 December 2016 ~ 27 January 2017.
