Fertility Astrology, with Nicola Smuts Allsop

An interview with Nicola Smuts Allsop about her work with fertility astrology, and how it can be used to help someone have a baby.

Nicola published a book in 2018 titled Fertility Astrology: A Modern Medieval Textbook, in which she outlines some case studies where she was able to help clients to have a child using astrology.

During the course of the episode we talk about some of the techniques Nicola uses in practice, how astrology should be used as an adjunct to more conventional methods rather than a replacement, and what some of the limitations are.
