The Chinese gender calendar is a method of gender prediction borrowed from the ancient Chinese. The calendar is reported to have very high accuracy rates if you follow and apply it correctly. This post explores this unique method of predicting your baby’s gender so that you can apply it correctly. No matter whether you prefer a baby boy or a girl, here is all that you need to know about the calendar.

This Chinese gender calendar employs temporal notions of the mother’s ‘age’ and ‘special month’ that are derivatives from the ancient Chinese Lunisolar Calendar. Note that the calendar is also available as a conversion in the standard Gregorian model. However, you should ensure to understand how it works to apply correctly.
Though many people consider the Chinese gender calendar to be very complex, it is indeed simpler to use than most other conception methods. You simply need to read the conception chart to know the best time to conceive a baby boy or girl. Here is a breakdown of the main concepts.
The Chinese lunar year
The Chinese lunar year is made of 12 regular months. However, another month is included in every 2nd or 3rd year. This implies that a couple intending to conceive a baby of specific gender need to follow the lunar year starting from the intercalary lunar month on the second or third moon after winter solstice.
The Chinese lunar month
The lunar month commences on the new moon’s day. This month as well as corresponding dates have been calculated and made available for the period between 1901 and 2100.
The Chinese lunar age
When trying to conceive a boy or girl, it is crucial to know how to calculate the woman’s age at the point the baby will be conceived. This will involve two important things;
- At the point of birth, you are deemed to have one lunar year.
- A person’s lunar age increases by one every lunar year after the moment of birth.
The Chinese gender chart for a boy
The Chinese gender calendar chart was borrowed from around the 13th century and is a presentation of the sky map and the moment when one was conceived. Therefore, the chart is made using the world map that articulately matches the time and location of birth.
The gender chart is made of 12 columns that represent all the 12 lunar months. Then, it also contains 28 rows representing the lunar age values. Every cell holds the value of one of the other gender. Look at the demonstration in figure 2.
