Chinese Astrology Predicts Baby Boy before Pregnancy ??

Chinese Astrology Calendar can help woman to predict baby gender using their astrology birth chart before her pregnancy and conception. Our Chinese Astrology Calendar knows how to convert the birth chart into Five Elements, Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth. Using the Five-Element relationships between mother and son, we can help woman to increase the chance to have baby boy by selecting a baby birth year. We believe that this method is much accurate in choosing baby gender than the Baby Gender Statistics Chart.

The following method to find a baby boy here applies only on women. Basically, we can find an element from the birth chart to represent the woman, then to find the element to represent her child. Five Elements are distinguished by Yin (female) and Yang (male). If the element of the mother is Yin, then the element of the son is Yang and vice versa.

After knowing the element of the son, we can search the years that contain the element. If the year contains the element of the son, then the woman has a chance to have a baby boy in that year.

  Find the element sign of the son from the astrology birth chart

  Check the element sign of the son in a certain year

  Search the months that contain the element sign of a son to increase the chance to have a baby boy

 

There are other factors to determine the baby gender. For example, the Five Elements in the Major cycle, the Elements Relationships and the Animals Relationships might change the result of a baby gender. However, the accuracy of this simple baby gender prediction is much higher than the Chinese Baby Gender Statistic Chart.

Five-Element Relationship


The Circulating Relationship

The elements next to each other are conducive, beneficial, congenial, friendly, supporting and generating.

  • Water generates Wood - Water is the mother of Wood
  • Wood generates Fire - Wood is the mother of Fire
  • Fire generates Earth - Fire is the mother of Earth
  • Earth generates Metal - Earth is the mother of Metal
  • Metal generates Water - Metal is the mother of Water


The Harmful Relationship

An element has capability to destroy, defeat, overcome and overwhelm the element next to it. 

  • Water can extinguish Fire
  • Wood can break the ground (Earth)
  • Fire can melt Metal
  • Earth can make Water disappear
  • Metal can break Wood


The Hostile Relationship

The elements facing each other are hostile, fighting, resisting, and hurting mutually.

  • Water dislikes Fire
  • Wood dislikes Earth
  • Fire dislikes Metal
  • Earth dislikes Water
  • Metal dislikes Wood

The first symbol in the DAY column represents the person in the birth chart. That means Male Metal is the element sign of this mother. In the Five Element theory, Metal generates Water. That means Metal is the mother of Water.

Therefore, the element sign of the son is Female Water, because the genders of mother and son are opposite. The element sign of the daughter is Male Water.

The Element Signs in the Year of 2003

The calendar symbols of Year 2003 are Female Water Sheep Female Water Sheep  Female Black Water Sheep.

After converting animal to the element signs, the elements for Year 2003 are

Female Water  Female Wood  Female Earth  Female Fire 
Female Water, Female Wood, Female Earth, Female Fire

As long as the element sign of the son is in the year, then the chance to have a baby boy is more than 50%. If the number of the son's element is more than two, then that's a golden opportunity to have a baby boy in this year.

 The Chinese calendar combines the lunar and solar systems together. The Year and Day cycles use the solar system. However, there are two different Month cycles in the Chinese calendar. One uses the lunar system and the other uses the solar system. In the lunar system of Month, the new moon day is the first day of a lunar month. The length of a lunar month is the length of time between two new moon days. The name of a lunar Month is taken from the solar system.  The Chinese solar months are not like the months of a modern calendar. The Chin

Chinese Leap Lunar Months


First, we need to know the difference between the Chinese Astronomical Calendar and the Civil Calendar. The Chinese Civil Calendar is posted by the Chinese government. The Chinese Astronomical Calendar is used by astronomers who work for government. The Astronomical Calendar is much more accurate than the Civil Calendar. The major difference is the assignment of Leap Months (Intercalary Months). We know a leap month is assigned if a lunar month (new moon to new moon) has no Solar Center Point. But, what do we do when the new moon day and the Solar Center Point fall on the same day?

If the new moon day and the Solar Center Point are on the same day, the lunar month contains that Solar Center Point in the Civil Calendar system. In the Astronomical Calendar, we have to compare the new moon time and the Solar Center Point time (hour, minute and second). The lunar month contains that Solar Center Point only if the Solar Center Point time comes after new moon time.

Because they are different, the listing of leap month assignments is different. From the following comparison charts of Beijing Time, PST and EST from 1979-2001. We find

In short, the Leap Month assignments of Chinese Civil Calendar create the confusion from different time. See the  example in the page of the Leap Month in Year 2001.


Issues of Leap Months

The Chinese Lunar Calendar system would be perfect, if the length of solar month was always longer than the length of a lunar month. If a lunar month is longer than a solar month, then it's possible that a lunar month contains two solar Center Points. We can call such month as the Double-Center-Point Lunar Month. For example, the lunar month in the December of 2052 contains Winter Solstice 2052/12/21 04:18:32 and Severe Cold 2053/01/19 15:00:35 in the following table of Chinese Astronomical Calendar.

When a lunar month contains two solar Center Points, then there will be a month nearby without any Center Point. Such a month without any Center Point is not a Leap Month, is called a Fake Leap Month. Therefore, the lunar month 2053/03/20 07:12:00 in the March of 2053 is not a Leap Month.

Because this imperfection of Chinese Leap Month assignment, we need the 5th rule into the Chinese Calendar original rules.

All these five rules are good enough to make a nearly perfect Chinese Calendar. However, some articles about Chinese Calendar provides more rules. such as

There are no strong astronomical reasons to make those rules for Chinese Calendar. Actually, they are only thumb-of-rule to determine the location of Leap Months. When studying the Sun and Moon astronomical data, we can understand more about the issues on the assignments of Leap Month. Also, we will know more about the difference between Astronomical Calendar and Civil Calendar.
