Dr. Jonas, a Czech physician, spent many years developing this method.
According to him, the days marked in red indicate fertility. When
the red periods coincide with ovulation, the chances of falling
pregnant are said to be highest. He also tried to predict whether
the child would be male or female (see the small Mars or Venus symbol). If
your own cycle is out of phase with the Jonas cycle, you may have
to wait quite a while until they match. Some people use the Jonas
method for birth control - please note that Astrodienst cannot be
held responsible for the results.
does the Transit Rhythmogram tell me?
The Transit Rhythmogram indicates what is going on in terms of transits
for a particular period. The transits of the outer planets are represented

the intensity of the combined curves.
This makes it easy to assess when there are periods of high cosmic

during 'quiet times', while others get depressed because nothing
is moving. Some people feel stressed by a period of intense transits,
while others love the challenge. We don't list the transits in terms
of 'good' and 'bad' either, for similar reasons. A challenging period
can sometimes be just what one needs to wake up to what life has
does the Transit Calendar with Progressions start two years earlier?
This is done by design. The Calendar gives a period of several years,
and in order to make sense of the current progressions, we consider
it necessary to see them in their chronological context and what
lead up to them.
