Should one's Zodiac sign include conception day and not just birthday?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (20675points) 1 month ago

Just wondering:

Did they consider conception day in ancient days to current?

Humor welcome:

How would you ever know the day you were conceived…especially back when women didn’t know that info themselves??? Back in the day, women just “got the feeling” that they were pregnant & didn’t know for sure until the baby bump actually appeared.Now days, doctors have enough knowledge to give a “close” educated “guess”. ONLY Mother Nature knows for sure the precise day, date, time & she ain’t sharing that information!!!

@LadyMarissa I would subtract 9.5 months from one’s birthdate. Should be close enough give or take a week or so.

@RedDeerGuy1 some astrologers would argue that there is supposed to be a “before birth” period, which is represented in the 12th house of the birth chart. This is supposed to be the time when you are prepared for the life you will have after birth.

Or, for more practical reason, I’d just go with @LadyMarissa‘s answer :P

@RedDeerGuy1 “Close enough” doesn’t work with astrology. As it stands now, one day can make a difference in the sign you’re born under, one hour can also make a difference. The unknown could screw up everything!!!

Go look up @Mimishu1995‘s 12th house & get back to us after completing your research!!!

@LadyMarissa A more accurate way is for an astrologer giving a time to conceive for a couple. That should be vastly more accurate?

In real life It could be the discretion of the astrologer if and when people have children. To add some logic to parenthood.

@RedDeerGuy1 NOT knowing the precise moment of conception would leave me to believe that it would be vastly more inaccurate!!!

@LadyMarissa The practice of picking an auspicious time to conceive would cut down on the unplanned pregnancies’. Even if the rest is B.S.

Also I believe that ones outer qualities, like body odor and dandruff or being incapable of holding polite conversation, ect. would determine if a subject would fine love in the moment. The crystal ball is just a gimmick, looking if someone is fidgety ect.

@RedDeerGuy1 you have to understand that most astrologers believe that we all have souls, and our souls are supposed to move from one lifetime to another. So when you are born, you unconsciously carry the memory/lessons/personal baggage of your past life and several lives before into this life, and it’s your duty to learn the lessons you got to learn and grow. Therefore, the moment you are created in your mother’s belly, it’s not the you of this life, but the you of the most recent life. This period is not accounted for because the birth chart and Zodiac sign are supposed to reflect your current life, not your past life. That is the entire point of the 12th house.

If you think of it this way, it will make more sense to you than thinking of it in the term of conception/parenthood, because those things are not what the birth chart is about.

GO BACK TO BED!!!

Your thinking is severely flawed at the moment probably due to lack of sleep. IF women could “pick” an auspicious time to conceive, MEN would be having ALL the babies!!!

I’ll repeat what I said earlier…Go look up @Mimishu1995‘s 12th house & get back to us after completing your research!!!

Any chance you’ve been drinking Red Bull this fine morning??? ;}

I’ve got to go to work, so I’m bowing out of this discussion until I can return home. I didn’t get up at 3:00am & you’re making me think way too fucking hard. Maybe @Mimishu1995 can get you through this crises. Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

With the toppling of the right to privacy in order overturn Roe v. Wade, I can already see a future in which the government forces people to catalogue every time people have sex (of course, only PV in the missionary position, as all other forms of intercourse will be illegal).

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@ragingloli In an African country, I don’t know which, only married couples can have sex. So your prediction is plausible.

It would have to be real, to be constrained by the bounds of logic,

But I know for a fact, plenty of astroloogies do go on about conception day and various horseshit. They’re always looking for more products to sell you.

No.

Human gestation periods vary widely. Even ones considered typical vary from 37 to 42 weeks, so would span two or three different major signs.

Astrologers like to look at the exact time of birth.

Also, existing astrology is all based on birth, not conception.

You could try gathering conception data (where known, which it very often is not known), and then spending centuries developing associations to see if you can draw any useful patterns from it, but no such work has been done AFAIK.
