Can conception be predicted from the stars? Can the sex of the child be predetermined by choosing the hour of conception according to the Moon's astrological sign? Do women actually experience two monthly ovulation cycles? Does an
understanding of the lunar cycle provide us with a reliable form of birth control? Can birth defects be avoided by employing astrological analysis to choose the best moment of conception?
According to the research of Dr. Eugene Jonas (pronounced YohNash), a Czech psychiatrist and gynecologist, the answer to all the above is emphatically yes! In fact, when tested on 10,000 women, Dr. Jonas Cosmo-Fertility concept was found
to be 97 per cent reliable. Certainly one of the most awesome discoveries of the century in terms of its significance for modern women, you'd think the astrological cycle method would be common knowledge. Then, why don't more couples know about it?
Dr. Jonas research began in 1956 as a result of having stumbled upon a fragment of an ancient Babylonian-Assyrian text which read:
Woman is only fertile during a certain phase of the moon
. Unfortunately, the ancient astrologers
offered no explanation as to which phase of the moon they were referring. Jonas felt dismayed but undaunted. Nearby Hungary had just legalized abortion.
Being a Roman Catholic, Dr. Jonas opposed abortion on ethical grounds. He was also concerned with the traumatic psychological effect abortion might have on his predominantly Roman Catholic clientele. He well knew from his practice that the rhythm method was hardly reliable
as a means of contraception. He read in the fragment a possibility for safe contraception and a hope for supposedly barren women to conceive.
Jonas was well qualified to test the concept. Besides his medical credentials, Jonas was one of a group of scientist-astrologers that called themselves Cosmobiologists. The cosmobiologists sought to observe and delineate the
effects of cosmic conditions and forcefields upon living matter. Because they were scientists and accredited physicians, Jonas and his colleagues were careful to dissociate themselves from what they considered the more fanciful
fortune-teller forms of horoscope prediction.
Modern-day cosmobiologist Reinhold Ebertein writes:
Whilst many followers of astrology fight shy of scientific research and especially statistics, cosmobiology endeavors to use every type of research and methodology to further its knowledge and to help produce more accurate results.
Jonas had also done extensive research into the correlation of sunspot activity with human life on earth. He had studied astronomy as well
as astrology. He was also aware that scientists of other centuries such as Hippocrates and Kepler had practiced astrology and that they had observed a correlation between the waxing and waning of the moon and fertility cycles.
After discovering the ancient fragment, Jonas went to work, drawing up natal charts or cosmograms as the Cosmobiologists preferred to call them, comparing them with conception charts, searching for a pattern. In the summer of
1956, after several weeks of intensive research, Jonas arrived at what he called the first three fundamental rules on conception, the determination of sex and the viability of the foetus, all of which can be precisely formulated.
