Find me 15 minutes into a conversation and you’re bound to hear me say, “What’s your zodiac?” It usually means I’m either totally hitting it off with someone and need to know if we share Aries’ fire, or totally, well, … not. Of course, there’s nothing foolproof about the alignment of the stars during your particular birth time, but it is interesting to think about. And if you’re pregnant and believe in astrology, you might be wondering about things like the best birthing technique for you based on your zodiac, or even how the alignment of the planets will affect your labor.
Because so much of what’s to come feels like one big guessing game, so why not put your faith in the stars, right? That’s not to say that you are destined to choose one childbirth method, nor that there is only one that will work for you. After all, if there’s anything you’ve learned about pregnancy and birth by now, it’s that everything is completely unpredictable and there will definitely be a surprise at every corner. That’s not to say that birth plans aren’t a vital part of many women’s labor and delivery process. But a built-in factor of the “plan” is that you might have to nix any and all thoughts about what you thought the process would be like.
Still, let’s check out your zodiac to see what’s possibly in the (tarot) cards for delivering you little one. Because if there’s anything I know for sure about labor, it’s this: Options are power, my friend.
