We learned in a recent course on Ayurvedic fertility and conception that the woman’s uterus has a “flowering period” 9 days after ovulation, appropriately named pushpa (Sanskrit for flower) when conception is most likely.
I think it’s interesting and telling that, if all the village women ovulate on the same day, say on the full moon, that the pushpa period would then fall after the 8/28 section of the zodiac from the full moon, or in other words the yogi point of the chart of ovulation, calculated via the pushya nakshatra, the eighth lunar mansion, used in the definition of ayuS or life.
Therefore, the village conceptions would be on the day fullest, most healthy, most fulsome astrologically.
