Young, fertile couples have only a 15% chance of falling pregnant each month, even when they have sex every day. It is really harder than you think to get pregnant – Nicola explores the multiple contributing factors in the astrological chart that prevent couples from conceiving. Nicola will demonstrate the signatures that provide challenges for infertile couples and how to use astrology in consultation to improve their chances. Techniques range from staunchly medieval to basic common sense. NFSW – Unsurprisingly, Nicola will use the words sperm and eggs a lot.
Nicola Smuts is a consulting astrologer, living in the UK. She has a diploma from Rod Suskin School of Astrology in South Africa, and a medieval diploma from Astrologos in the UK. This year Nicola is enrolled at University of Christchurch in Canterbury for a Master’s degree in Sacred Myth and Cosmology. Nicola lectures internationally on her fertility work, and her research and methods in this field are pioneering and unique. Her success in diagnosing fertility issues in charts and finding potentially fertile times to try IVf and other reproductive treatments has been featured in mainstream press (Daily Mail UK, London Times UK, Sunday Times UK) magazines such as Marie Claire (SA), OVA (UK) Fertility Road (UK) and her work has been featured on national television in South Africa.
