A woman’s biological or baby clock is something to behold. It’s not uncommon to see a woman who never wanted children change her mind, whiplash fast. The woman herself can be taken aback. I experienced this myself. Baby fever!
Astrologically, the timing of the ticking baby clock correlates with the Saturn return. It kicks in about 28 years old. I acknowledge that some women do not feel this; in fact that’s what this post is about! But most women do feel this urge. You feel your baby clock kick in. The ticking may be subtle in the beginning but the intensity increases as months and years pass. Eventually, the drive and desire for a baby takes over. This INSTINCT is baked in!
I’ve been an astrologer for decades and worked with many women during this phase of their life. The volume of a woman’s baby clock does vary. I wonder today if this can’t be seen in the natal chart.
This is occurring to me now, probably because Saturn is in Capricorn. Most the women having their Saturn return at this time have a stellium in Capricorn. Speaking in general terms, they are naturally “parental”.
Would this matter? I think it does. Really, how could it not?
Compare a woman who is naturally nurturing to one who primarily lives in the world of ideas. It seems to obvious to me how one women might set aside her physiological urge more easily than the other. Some women find it nearly impossible… or even impossible.
If you want to witness this, turn on the show, “Married At First Sight.” Invariably, the women want a baby… an immediate baby. They want a baby so bad, they are willing to marry a man they’ve never met or seen in their life!
I can understand this, having had the feelings myself. It’s like being pregnant and diving for protein, even if it’s sitting on another person’s plate. The urge is primal.
What do you think about this? If you are a woman who has heard your baby clock ticking, what was your experience? Do you think the degree of something like this can be delineated via a natal chart?
